Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #176

Today I made a card layout based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  I made it for Easter and from My Creative Time products.  I love the way it turned out. Thanks to Freshly Made Sketches for enticing me to use products I haven't used before.

This is my Easter card.  Love the way it turned out.  Love my MCT products.

Card Class with Lisa

Made some cards with my good friend, Lisa, at her La Petite Paperie or her monstrous craft room with endless supplies. We had great conversation and made some cards and a gift bag as well.  Thought I would share.

First off, I love this one.  I need to work on coloring and shading, but these party animals will bring a smile to anyone's face.

Second was the bright and fun banner card.  I have to make birthday cards almost always as they are the only cards I tend to give away.

Then there was this cute Easter card, maybe my mom will get it, or whoever makes Easter dinner, then it is a well deserved card, ;)

Lastly we made this card and gift bag, this will probably go to my dad as he has a love of cars.

I really enjoyed my card night.  I am in a creative mood lately, so I have to keep going with it and squeeze it in where I can find the time.

MCT Designer Challenge and Milk Carton Die

I am in love with the new MCT Milk Carton Die, have made four in one day.  I decided to make one for the MCT challenge. 

I followed the photo and color inspiration for the challenge. These cute boxes are so easy to make and look great no matter what you decorate them with.

Here are the others I played around with.  Don't they look great with the simplicity of a pattern paper, tag, and ribbon?

This last one I whipped up in minutes for my bday niece, not the best picture as I was running last minute.  

I am so happy with this die and can see me making multiples of these to just give happy gifts to those I care about.

Thanks for looking,

Latte Love

Today's inspiration came from Teri Beri's Creations. When I saw her post way back in September I knew who I wanted to recreate it for, one of my best, coffee drinking friends, Belinda.  It was meant to be a 40th birthday surprise, but I became extremely busy, so then Christmas, right? Nope, still really busy. I finally had a little time and my daughter had a hair appointment with Belinda, perfect timing, and it happened to her anniversary and she was upset about being out of coffee creamer, again, perfect timing.

Belinda loved it, has thanked me several times and even posted it on facebook. I love surprising my friends with little gifts. 

I used several MCT products
                           Lowercase Fun Dies
                              used for the U
                           Heart to Heart Love Frame Dies (NEW)
                              for the hearts and love heart
                           Just a Little Note to Say...
                              for the square bubble sentiment which I stamped in sections
                           Stitched Square Speech Bubbles
                              for the sentiment
                           All You Need is Coffee
                              for the latte

I had a lot of fun getting to use my MCT products, they have been neglected too long!

P is for Payton

Finally finished, after what seemed like months of snags and a busy life, the letter P for my friend's daughter Payton.  I was told Payton loved purple, zebras, and glitter! What little girl wouldn't???

 The P and paper was bought from Hobby Lobby.  The zebra was bought from Walmart and enhanced with rhinestones, glossy accents and glitter from somewhere.
 Toenail, I mean hoof polish! Yes, they do market glittery hoof polish for your hooved animals. ;)
 This is why I love my Gypsy, I love to weld my letters together and cut out on my Cricut. I hope my Gypsy never dies, although it is showing signs of spazzing out these days.  I Glossy Accented the name and added glittery glitz.
Final end result! A rik rak glitzy ribbon hanger.  

Thanks for looking.

ABC Challenge at MCT

For my take on the ABC Challenge at MCT I decided to follow Miss Lucia's slider card from this week.  Thanks Miss Lucia for such a fun card and post to a slider tutorial.

I am using the letter S.  Shamrock, Saint Patrick's Day, and slider card are my S words.

It's a 10 cent slider card, lol, because I used two nickels to fill the space of MCT oval die that I cut out twice on the card.  I used the cut out oval for my sentiment.  Glossy accents fills the sentiment and the shamrock from You're My Pot of Gold.

I also added some glitter glue to the shamrock.

Thanks for all the inspiration this week.
