MAKE IT MONDAY #319: GRAFFITI WORD ART


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include graffiti word art.


Lexi has the best techniques.
I just loved this one!



I used the Happy from Tipped Tops.
Also Balloon Bash.


I also used Melissa's  Embossing Enamel Splatter technique. 
This time I used some dots of embossing ink to hold the powder down. 
It worked SO much better.


I LOVE it when Lexi does the MIM's
This was a good one!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #317: USING OUTLINE IMAGES


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include using outline images to accent your project.


I liked this technique way more that I thought I would. I LOVE color, so I thought the white space would bother me. But the images I chose filled it in more that I planned...



I used the blooms from Warm Regards...my current obsession!
I played around with leaves and they were all more harsh than I liked so I used 
the bloom cluster from Floral Sketches. I LOVE that cluster. I use it a lot to fill in space.




I also love the sentiments from Penned Elegance!
So pretty.

I have a new "rule" when I am working.
If I make a card I like, I force myself to make at least 8-10.
I would love to get ahead on my inventory so I am not making so many cards in a big rush!
I made 9 of this one!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

I LOVE this technique! Thank you Lizzie. Seems like a simple idea I should have known about!
So glad to add it to my arsenal!


I also love Lizzie's Warm Regards. This was the first time I had a chance to use it. 
It won't be the last


I used Dawn's Hexagon stencil, the small one.

I am so happy with this card. I will be using this technique again!

MAKE IT MONDAY #315: EMBOSSING ENAMEL SPLATTERS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include embossing enamel (or embossing powder) splotches & splatters.

I had another short trip last week so time is limited.
Burning up nervous energy before KU/Duke game this afternoon...


I need practice but the splatters are a fun tecnnique///
lost a lot of the chunks while heating it...



If you are going to do a Melissa technique, you should use ribbon, right?

OK! Wish us luck!!!

Thank you fro looking at my blog!

CREATE ALONG WITH US: MARCH 2018

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

Can you believe it!!!
I made a challenge card!!!

I just went through one of the busiest seasons of my life!

I had 3 huge sales since November
 and sold almost everything I made for all 3! 
I have made between 1,400-1,500 cards since last September.
I give 100% of the glory to God! I KNOW it was with the help of the Holy Spirit.
HIS supernatural powers. In that time I also took 3 trips, 2 to DC. One the week before my last sale!!!
God is GOOD!!!

Last year was the biggest donation I have ever made for my water mission. Enough to dig 2 wells!!!
It was a lot of work, but well worth it!

So I am taking some time off from mass production. I am hoping to get back into the swing of weekly challenges and cleaning up a bit!

I loved this Laurie Schmidlin card.
SO pretty!


My pictures are a bit dark. I have changed work spaces and I will need to experiment where the best place is to take pictures. This one is not it!


I used Mix & Mat, Songbird leaf branch and Pencil Blooms dies.


I haven't moved my heat embossing tools so I just used black StazOn ink.
I loved Laurie's touch of gold, I'll try that another time.
 

It feels SO good to make a challenge card! I LOVE stretching myself and making things that are more complicated and to be honest, more fun!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

WE LOVE YOU DAWN! OFFICIAL BLOG HOP

We Love Dawn

What an honor to get to post a card in Dawns honor!
We all love Dawn and are so GRATEFUL she is improving everyday.


One of my favorite stamp sets from Dawn is Vintage lines.
The only thing I like better than the stamps is the gorgeous paper.
Nichole's Pen & Ink sentiment seemed perfect as all of us have prayed a lot for Dawn over the years!


I add the little "stamens" to 3 flowers and that is all it needs!
A card full of color for our full of color girl!

WE LOVE YOU, DAWN!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #299: SENTIMENT WINDOWS

MIM-Sentiment Window1

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a sentiment window.

I finally posted a card!!! Its been a while.
I had a HUGE project I was working on and I have had a virus. I coughed for almost 7 weeks!!!
I wasn't sick but the cough was debilitating...

I needed to come up with a design for Thanksgiving cards for my Card party open house so Dawns card was a great inspiration. 




The paper is old PTI. August Psalms and the acorns are from Give Thanks.


Hope my ladies like this one.


Thank you for looking at my blog!
