Design Team Post by Gwen - Back to school shape card!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week-end, and doing something you love!  This is Gwen from This and That by Gwen, to share a back to school card with you.

 Back to school is going on all around us, so I made a back to school card.  This is a SVG Cuts file with My Craft Spot touches!

The cute little tag was made with the Stamping All Around Fall stamp set and cut with the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies, and tied on with Maraschino Twine.

Only 2 more days until the Party starts!!  Come join us on Monday to see all of the fun new stamps and metal dies!

DT Post by GiGi - What's Poppin'?

Hello everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I have a card to share! I used the Tasty Treats stamp set for that fun sentiment!

Don't you just LOVE that face?!?! I can't help but to smile when I see it :D

I actually used my CRICUT for the cuts on this card! I haven't used it in so long I almost forgot how to. LOL!
I cut the corn using Smiley Cards and stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Cornies face stamp. I used a Copic marker and a white gel pen to add some kernels of corn to him. I also tied some Olive Jute String in a bow around the bottom. 

The popcorn was cut from Slumber Party and I pop dotted it to the card. I stamped the sentiment using My Craft Spot's Tasty Treats stamp set and added a bow to the side. 

I hope you all enjoyed seeing my card and thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!

New Sequins temporarily out of stock

The sequins were even more popular than I anticipated and are sold out.  

I should have them back in stock by the end of this week (hopefully sooner!)   You can still go ahead and "pre-order" these and I will ship your orders as soon as I get the new batch of sequins. Sorry about the wait!


Challenge #110 - Get Well - Sympathy

Hello, my crafty friends!  Being sick or going through a difficult trial is anything but fun.  I have 5 sisters (no brothers).  My youngest sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in July and is just starting her difficult journey to recovery.  We have cried many tears together and alone.  She is amazingly calm about everything and seems really positive.  We have all been praying for her and feel like she will get through this and live to raise her 4 young children.  :)

Whether it is a long drawn out illness or loss or just a bout with the flu, it's so hard to watch someone you love go through hard times.  It is nice to be able to send a handmade card to show how much you love them and care about them.  So . . .

This week's challenge: Get Well/Sympathy
(This challenge will run for 2 weeks because of the Stamp Release Party!)

This is the card I sent to my sister:

Now it's time to sit back and enjoy these beautiful projects from my amazing design team!!:


Gwen's card is sooooo cute!! I love her adorable skunk and pretty flowers!  Gwen's fun sentiment is from the Cute Critters stamp set.


GiGi's card is so fun!  I love the polka dot background and her cute image!  Perfect with these sentiments!

GiGi's sentiments are both from the Feel Better Soon stamp set and she cut her little tag from the Tiny Banners metal dies.


Kate's card is gorgeous!  Her 4" Doily makes a perfect background for her sentiment, crinkle ribbon bow and pretty flower!

Kate's sentiment is from the With Deepest Sympathy stamp set


Marlene's gift box is sooo cute!! 

She tied her cut tag on with Snow White Crinkle Ribbon and Red Jute. 

Marlene used Feel Better Soon, Tickets, and Stampin Around Summer, and the Tiny Tags" Stamp Sets for all of her fun sentiments.   She cut her tags and sentiment doilies from the Tiny Doilies Metal Dies, Lacey Banners Metal Dies, and the Tiny Tags Metal Dies.
