Show Me Some Tags at Die Cuttin' Divas

Happy Tuesday,

Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. Every Tuesday a new theme is posted and we typically have a Guest Diva too. Currently the challenges are planned and booked until April 2019 with a few openings in May and June. If interested just leave me a message.

This past weekend I worked on a few projects and it felt good to pull out the holiday supplies. I searched for dies, stamps, papers, and svg files. Fun! Fun! Fun! Let the holiday spirit run wild!  

This Week's Challenge...
~ Tags ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I love the treat tag die from Jaded Blossom since they cut and layer so easily. They can be used for any occasion, but with Christmas on my mind  it was easy to decide. The bottom layer of the tag was cut in red glitter paper. It was in a 6 x 6 stack I bought at Target a couple years ago after the holidays for 70% off (the green glitter paper was in the same stack too). 

The snowmen are Recollection stickers. It's amazing what you will find in your Christmas craft boxes if you just look. I have the tendency to buy new when there are sales, but these were too cute not to use. The winter trees were cut with a My Favorite Things dies.

The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Winter Wishes set. The green ribbon matches those trees perfectly.
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Tags" challenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects. The tags are awesome!

Stay Creative,

Thanks or Thanksgiving Challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Everyone,

Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. There is so much to be thankful for and I am hoping you have the opportunity to share that with someone today.

Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas. It started on Tuesday, but you may be able to find some time around the holiday or shopping to create a thank you card. 

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
We are going to my in-laws today and I decided to make some candy treats for the guests.

I love the fall colored M&Ms which are perfect for this time of year.

All Star Birthday

Hello Crafty Friends,

It has been quite a while since I have spent quality time in my craft room or worked on any design team projects. My new Content Area Specialist (CAS) position has kept me busy in many different ways and I have been tutoring a few students at the public library too. Since I am on Thanksgiving Break this week, I am finally feeling at ease and able to get back to my crafty commitments. What a good feeling knowing I can create a crafty routine and start visiting every one again.

Last week the new challenge at Not Just Cards was posted. The theme is always "Anything Goes". Just as the name can create any type of project whether it be a card, tag, layout, gift bag, or a special treat to be shared. 

Here is my Design Team project...
I created a sports themed birthday card for a little man. The All Star svg file is by Miss Kate Cuttables. I shifted my shooting stars and balls around, but I think they fit in my space perfectly.

Inside of the card has a stamped sentiment.
Hope you will join us at Not Just Cards this month for our "Anything Goeschallenge. Be sure to check out all the other DT projects for a variety of  styles.

Stay Creative,
