MAKE IT MONDAY #268: DOUBLE-LAYER TAGS

  DSC_7870.1\\

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a double-layer tag.

How adorable are Dawn's tags?
First of all, how awesome is it to see her back in action?
We missed you sweet Dawn...

So I sound like a broken record...but I had another INSANE week!
I had my bible study small group at my house for lunch on Tuesday, and a card sale here on Friday.
I sold another $628!!!
I will donate $4000 for the year! That will dig 2 of the smaller wells!
Thank you Jesus for all of the VERY generous women who support my little mission!!!

Now, on to my last minute effort for a layered tag...

Lizzie's Basic and Window Cut tags seemed to be a no-brainier...


Could not have been quicker...I absolutely adore Dawn's Peaceful Pinecones...
It is a timeless image I never grow tired of!


Made a gorgeous tag!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: NOVEMBER 2016

Create-along-with-us-heading

Create a project utilizing inspiration you've seen during release week. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product

Birthday-Wrap

I cannot wait to get Wrap it up die set for this very reason. I LOVE Betsy's letterbox!!!
ABSOLUTELY adorable!!!

The woman's conference at my church is coming up in February and Betsy's box inspired me to make a Valentines one to sell at that conference.

I used Pure Poppy and Stampers Select card stock.


I have these heart rhinestone stickers and the felt heart sticker in my stash,


I LOVE Big Basics dies: Love You.
It was a PERFECT choice for Valentines!


After I photographed the box, it made me wonder if  people give gift cards for Valentines...
I suppose I could make a few with the slot and gift card envelope...or just a place to write a note...
anyway, I took my cue from Betsy and didn't add the envelope!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

IMG_3807

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and assembly line cards.

This was a timely challenge.
One of my dear friends ordered a dozen Thanksgiving cards.
I played catch-up all week after spending so much time getting ready for my sale.
So I finally made it to my craft room today...


I absolutely adore Autumn Adornments Stamp Set.
I use it any chance I get.


So it was a perfect choice.
The felt leaves and acorns were from my stash...
Made making 12 cards MUCH faster.


A dozen cards...all done while watching the Chiefs squeak out a win!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #265: LAYERED DRY BRUSHING

MIM 265 Thanks So Much Card

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and layered dry brushing.

I have some old making  Memories paper paint. I think I bought it after watching Miss Ashley Cannon Newell make a card...YEARS ago,

So, that is what I used.


I didn't have a household paint brush handy, so I used my largest art brush.
I found it difficult to get as much paint off as Lizzie did.


I do like the results and it was pretty quick.
so, I made several panels.


I should get out all of the colors and make more panels.
Easier than stenciling...great texture.

I pulled a Diana K and made more than one card.
She is SUCH and overachiever!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
