Enjoy Your Vacation

Hello Everyone! Happy Friday!

Welcome back to Carson's Creations . Today is my day to post at Miss Kate Cuttables. Before I share my design team project,  I want to remind you there is a free file that you can download every day. YES! Every day a new and different one. Be sure to get yours today!

Today's Freebie...Click Here

Here is my Design Team project...
I created this card for a co-worker that is going on a cruise as soon as school is over. What a vacation! I am sure she is going to enjoy the 7 day Caribbean cruise! I know I would be soaking up the sun.

I used the cruise ship file. I cut it on my Cameo in red, white, and a few shades of blue. The background was created with Tim Holtz distress inks (faded jeans, salt ocean, tumbled glass, mustard seed, and squeezed lemonade) and watercolor paper.

The stamped sentiment  by Jaded Blossom (Gift Cards Galore set) expresses my thoughts perfectly! I enjoyed my last cruise, so I hope my friend does too!

Miss Kate Cuttables has LOTS of files to choose from, so check them out.

Paper Play Sketches #7

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by yesterday for Jo's 4th Blogoversary (if you haven't yet you can just scroll down).  Today I am sharing the new challenge at Paper Play SketchesIt's a great way to test your creativity since the layout is provided, but you can put your own twist on it...choose your colors, image, embellishments. Give it a try!

This Week's Challenge is...

 Here is my Design Team project...
I have had this pattern paper in my stash for while and saved it because once you cut it you don't have it any more. I love the bold colors and pretty flowers. I wasn't sure about adding the lace at first, but decided to keep it. I wanted a feminine touch. What do you think?

The trio of flowers is part of a svg file from KaDoodle Bug Design ~ Irish Sheep. The sentiment thanks was cut with my Cricut Expression ~ "Just Because" Cards cartridge.
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketch challenge. Be sure to visit the design Team members since there is a wide variety of inspiration!

Thanks again for stopping by!
Stay Creative,

April's Symbols at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Friends,

Welcome back and thanks for stopping by!  Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. I hope you will join us this week!

This Week's Challenge...
April's Symbols
Flowers (Daisies) and/or Bling (Diamonds)

Here is my Design Team project...
My daughter's birthday was during the month of April, so I know it is a special month. A dainty flower and my bling represents the canary diamond. 

I used the following sketch.

I went with clean and simple, so I could use this new " Happy Wishes" die I just purchased. Dies are so much  easier than using my electronic cutting machines. Don't get me wrong...I still like my Cameo and Cricut because of all the options, but steel dies are quick and cut so clean. 
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "April's Symbolschallenge. The other design team members  sure do love flowers and bling. Be sure to check out the variety!

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Buzzz...Call Me! It's a Queen Bee Challenge

Hello Everyone! Happy Sunday!

Hubby and I went blueberry picking this morning. First time this season and I am looking forward to making some Blueberry Buckle (it is a coffee cake with fresh blueberries and a crumbly topping...yummy delicious).

About a week and half ago I was guest designer for Connie Can Crop and I decided to make another card for her monthly challenge...Queen Bee

This Stuffy Bee is by Treasure Box Designs and it was easily cut on my Cameo. Edges were inked in yellow or black. Aren't the pink hearts on his feet a cute addition!

Black skittles by Carri at DoubleClick.

This sentiment and doily die is from My Craft Spot (closed). The circle die is by MFT. Both were cut with my Cuttlebug.
Other Materials:
DCWV pattern paper ~ Lemon Flower stack
yellow, black, pink, grey, and white card stock
black ink ~ Versafine Black Onyx

You still have time! You have until midnight on Saturday, April 30th to link it up.
Connie will draw one random winner. The winner will not be based on skill or talent, 
but based on just completing the challenge.

I sure hope you will join the challenge this month!
Stay Creative,
Georgiana
