Club scrap artist team challenge blog hop

hi all, welcome to the team challenge blog hop! if you are hopping along with us then you are here  from  hetty's blog.  if you get lost along the way or want to start from the beginning head to karens post at  the club scrap blog

For the team challenge we were asked to incorporate the club scrap digital elements into our project. I kinda had some printer issues and the first few pages i tried to print printed in black and white then after fiddling with my printer setting i got it to print in color and then my computer froze ... yada yada i have three colored copies of the same page and ran out of ink.. lol!

digital elements printed on computer paper

 So what to do with multiples. Make a background. Since my page was about sewing i sewed the printed cutaparts out and made the background. I added some matted layers to my photo and added my title. It was sew much fun ;)

12 x 12 page

next stop is josette's blog

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

My crafty hacks from the dollar store

My Crafty dollar store hacks- use wax paper as a disposable ink blending surface by securing to your work area with washi tape and parchment paper in place of vellum in layering scrapbook pages and it is embossable too. #dollartree #craftyhacks #parchmentpaper #waxpaper #notjustforfood #crazycrafter

My cs technique challenge page

Hi all, today i am stopping by to share a 12x12  page i made for the club scrap technique ( creating your own backgrounds) challenge using the cs delft kit.  Remember that page i misted a lil while back with the cracked porcelain stencil?  Yup i used that as the background to my pictures on this page. I just cut the square part of it out and added it to the beautiful navy blue cardstock. 

I then fussy cut out pretty flowers from various patterned papers from the kit. I then matted the pic in yellow and light blue and then brought the yellow around the page with lil punched circle centers. 

To join the tina's technique challenge head here:

Giant yellow brad and letter stickers are from my stash . 

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Think spring!wreath i made using goodies from Oriental trading

Think spring!!!! 

Hi all, well it was spring-like here for a lil while but we are back to cold weather again. So let's all think spring and craft spring. Remember my OT happy mail from a couple weeks back?! Well, I made a fun and springy wreath with it all:) I first, started with the wreath frame and instead of wrapping the frame with a fluffy technique that is popular i decided to fold the wide ribbon as i wrapped it to add a cool layered texture. Also i kept it flat-ish so i could add the wooden eggs on top with my bow and chipboard eggs. The flowers and lil eggs i used are diecuts layered onto chipboard shapes that came with the kit and the large eggs are the wooden standup eggs less the stands covered with the pretty scrapbook paper. Lastly, i inked the pieces ,layered them and glued them on to the burlap covered wreath. Check out my pics and more info below . Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!!! 

To get your hands on products i have used click link below:

Items i used from oriental trading: 

My reviews:  

Wreath frame- a lil flimsy but much sturdier when wrapped with burlap ribbon and a great deal for 3 


Surebonder coolshot mini glue gun/glue sticks - glue comes out slow- so slow i grabbed my liquid adhesive to finish my project- will be giving it to the kids to use 


Burlap ribbon  - nice and wide and a ton on a roll - love it! 


Wooden Easter Egg standups - i used without the stands - got alot and leftovers for other projects with my kids


We r memory keeper. Tool kit w magnetic mat-  great tool set. Tools are lightweight and work great bonus for being hot pink πŸ’•


 Easter escapade paper kit- super deal- papers are cute and set even came with buttons brads and chipboard shapes for under $5 😳

items i used from my stash: 

Craft Liquid glue

prima brown ink



Wire cutter 


 Disclaimer- Oriental trading  has sent me products to review, but all opinions are my own.

Below are a pictures of how i made my easter wreath and the final pics with close-ups
