Under the Sea at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating. Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Under the Sea ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I created two snack boxes for any day trip...perhaps to the aquarium. Me, I love Sea World and the best part is educators can get a free teacher pass. Guess what I forgot when I was making this project? The goldfish crackers. I went to the grocery store, but forgot to write them on this list. Have you ever done that? 

I cut the Silhouette boxes by Sweet Afton with my Cameo. The original came with the goldfish cut-out, but I changed the other one. I used a MKC dolphin file and only needed one layer. I added  a piece of clear transparency film so the crackers won't fall out. The mini tag is by My Craft Spot and the Fish On stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Under the Seachallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

I Can't Thank You Enough at Eyelet Outlet and Brads

Happy Friday Everyone!
Today is my second to last day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads since my term will be complete at the end of July and I am showcasing a few different products from the shop.

Here is my Design Team project...
I am still trying to add some thank you cards to my stash. When I go back to school in two weeks I want to be able to give a card to the parents that send in items from the class wish list. Due to budget cuts, our class supply orders were cancelled and I am going to be appreciative of anything that I can get for the students. 

I used the following sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I layered the light purple flowers and added a round daisy brad in the center. Both the flowers and brads come in a variety of colors. The flower was adhered with a 1/2" Glue Dot.

The background was created using MFT periwinkle ink and a splatter stamp from the Distressed Patterns set. The stamped sentiment is by My Favorite Things ~ Thank so Very Much set and the heart enamel dots are from Eyelet Outlet and Brads.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products! Why not check them out today.

Fluttering By to Say "Hi" at Paper Play Sketches

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

Today is Paper Play Sketches Day.
This Week's Challenge...


Here is my Design Team project...
First, I had to decide which paper stack I wanted to use for this sketch. I chose Vintage Bliss by Simple Stories because of the color palette.

Then I needed to select an image for the square...I love butterflies, so I pulled out a die from my stash. This set had an embossing die, which left a slight imprint on the wings.

The stamped sentiment is an oldie by Whimsical Designs.
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they used the sketch.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Sci-Fi with Yoda at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back to Carson's Creations! I am glad you are stopping by to see what I have been creating. Today brings a new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva and my hubby has been at it again. I showed him my card and he made another wise crack. Please tell me I am not alone. Does anyone else have a hubby that loves to give you a hard time in a teasing way, of course?

This Week's Challenge...
~ Sci-Fi ~

Here is my Design Team project...
My hubby was wearing a Darth Vader t-shirt that said I am your Father. I showed him my card and said, "This is Hello Kitty Yoda, and I am your Mother." He said there are no girl Yodas. Gee, he just didn't get it. Actually, I think he just likes to give me a hard time. : )

This Hello Kitty Yoda was from a previous blog hop by Jaded Blossom/SVG Cutting Files. I cut her with my Cameo.  I added Black Skittles from Carri at DoubleClick in the upper right corner.
  
When I was trying to decide what sentiment to use, I Googled a list of Yoda quotes.

I used a sitched banner by MFT and the stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Random Act of Kindness stamp set.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Sci-Fichallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

I'm Guest Designer at Connie Can Crop

Hello Crafty Friends,
Happy Monday! 
Today I am the Guest Designer at Connie Can Crop and I am super thrilled to have been asked. What a fabulous opportunity to share with others.

The challenge...Use Your Stash.
Perfect! I have plenty of crafty supplies that need to be used.

Here is My Guest Designer project...
I created a matching tag and card for my one of my very good teacher friends that has been my walking buddy all summer.  We meet almost every day at 6:15am and walk for one hour (which is about 3.6 miles). We talk about anything and everything. Lately we have been on a healthy food kick, so I bought her a salad cookbook, which will go with this set. 

First, I started with the tag. The base and sentiment is by Jaded Blossom and then I stamped all fab flowers by Lawn Fawn. The 3 Girl JAM ribbon was in a plastic container in the closet and I was glad to be able to use it with these purple flowers.   

I created the card next. I decided to use the scallop rectangle mat and then I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the embroidered thanks into the cream card stock. Instead of embroidery floss, I used purple craft thread since I have a bunch in my stash. I did watch a video to make sure I was sewing in the correct direction.

The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Encouragement stamp set.

Thanks Connie for allowing me to be your Guest Designer. Looking forward to next time.
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

You're A Great Friend

Hello Everyone,
It has been busy the past couple of days, but this next week should be a bit slower paced. My daughter and I went to Flagler Beach on Thursday and yesterday I went to a National Science Conference in Orlando since my co-worker was unable to attend. That was a neat experience to be be able to talk to other Science teachers from all over the world. The authors of the Picture Perfect series presented and I attended an electrical cicuit session that was loads of fun.  

Today I am sharing a card I made for a great friend just not sure which one yet.

I used the following sketch from My Favorite Things.

I used the cloud stencil to create the background then added my stamped lovable leopard with pop dots. I used lots of MFT die for the scalloped edges, square frame, stitched rectangle mat, and sentiment banner.

The sentiment is from the MFT Lovable Leopard stamp set.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend,
Take Care,
Georgiana

Adventures Awaits

Happy Friday Everyone!
Today is my day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I am showcasing the compass and gold brads.

Here is my Design Team project...
I made a tag for my daughter's boyfriend. She got him a special gift for his birthday and I told her I would create a tag to match the theme of her present. It is a surprise.

First, I cut the two piece tag with the Jaded Blossom treat die. I used Ranger Brushed Corduroy distress ink and a spritz of water to create the background. The adventure title is from Miss Kate Cuttables, which was cut on my Cameo. The compass and gold brads are by Eyelet Outlet and Brads. The gold ribbon was fed through the hole and then the brown ribbon was tied into a bow.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.


Eyelet Outlet and Brads has a wide variety of products available!
