Darling Blondie on Accordian Medallion

Happy Wednesday!!  I have another card made with the Darling Marci digi from La-La Land Crafts.  I just love her cute li'l pose.  I tried one of the circle flowers/medallions that I've been seeing, but totally just guessed at how to do it and I think my pleats are a li'l big.  I scored them at 1/2" so it does stick up quite a bit.  This paper is from the Cosmo Cricket "Circa" pad... a bit vintagey and I love it!  Be sure to hop on over to our LaLa Land Blog to see daily creations by our Design Team!!  You can also enter your creations in the Customer Gallery and be entered to WIN free stamps!  =) 

Wishing You the Very Best this Year

Happy Tuesday!!  This week's Going Grey challenge at Scrap-Creations is... NEW YEAR'S!   I used this brand new digi from La-La Land Craft's called " Darling Marci "... isn't she the cutest?!  You can use her for so many occasions.  You can read more about how to get her HERE .  I'm not sure what this paper is from, I'm thinking it's Memory Box?  I was gifted several loose pages so I'm not certain where it's from.  The  burnt-edge wooden scrolly embellishment  is from McMahon Five Designs and was perfect for sitting her on... although a clock would have been nice too.  The Prima roses are also from M5D, and the sentiment is from Doodle Pantry .    Remember for our challenge you can use any vendor's images/papers etc., so I hope you'll come play along with us at Scrap-Creations this week!

Christmas Gift Set

Doodle Pantry Challenge #4 :   Something NEW (can be a new technqiue, new digi or crafting supplies, or a New Year's theme) Merry Christmas Eve!!   Well, I have to admit this week kinda threw me for a loop, being sick and missing work, ( and then working overtime to make up for it before my break ) and missing most of my DT postings, and I even had some Christmas cards for friends filled out and ready to mail but didn't get to the post office ( or even down my long driveway to put them in the box !)... *Note to self:  Start on Christmas MUCH EARLIER than the week or two before Christmas!!   But Christmas comes but once a year and I simply had to get some things done for it, like this gift set I made for my boss and his wife.  I posted a tutorial on how to  " Digi Stamp on Candles " in my yesterday post.    For this set, I used the cute singing birds and sentiment from the " Winter Song Birdies " digi set from Doodle Pantry.   Their  4th challenge is up! 

Tutorial - Digi Stamping on Candles

  Tis the season for gift giving, and as usual, I found myself in need of a quick but thoughtful gift so I decided to TRY stamping on candles for the first time. Not only that... but to stamp on "fake" candles  (the flameless battery-operated kind) ... and not only that, but to use digis instead of rubber stamps ( because I didn't have "just the right" image in the right size ). Much to my surprise... IT WORKS!! It's very much the same technique as traditional stamping on candles,  using tissue paper (the kind you put in gift bags ).   First of all, the candle I used here came in a pack of 3, varrying sizes of flameless candles .  Even though they are battery-operated, they are still made of wax and works the same way as a real candle!   1)  You'll want to resize your digi to fit the size candle you're using, and print that digi half way down the page on a sheet of regular copy paper.  Then cut a piece of tissue paper ( a little bit larger than y

SuPeR MaRCi and SuPeR DoG TuFFy

Hello!  Are you having a SuPeR day so far??  It's my day to post for La-La Land Crafts and Super Cupcake Marci was whispering "Sweet cupcakes" in my ear!  Lol.  So I inked her up and her SuPeR dog Tuffy too!  He's not much help though as he keeps eating the cupcakes, so I had to put them up high out of reach!  ;)  I just have to say, I LOVE these stamps!  They are so fun to color and really fun to give for kids' birthdays (and even adults love em!)  Irina and Eric Berry have really done a fabulous job on this new line and I can't wait to see what's coming next!!!  =)  Did you hear the news??  ALL these Marci and Luka stamps are now available as digis or rubber!!  You can buy the digis on the blog  and the rubber stamps in the store .  =)   EDITED TO ADD: For the doggy's cape, I just shrunk the digi of cucake Marci and then printed it onto the DP (taped a piece of Designer paper to a piece of typing paper and ran through my printer) then cut it

♪BOW-WOW-WOWs of Holly♪

Today's card features the adorable dog named TUFFY !  He comes in a set of rubber stamps with 4 Tuffys and also comes with some fun sentiments and playful toys!  I dressed him up in a santa hat (not part of the set) for the holidays.  Have you ever tried putting a santa hat on your real dog?  I have and it never stays!  We tried some on our cats one year---that didn't work well either, LOL!  But Tuffy proudly wears this cute hat with pride.   Hope you have a woderful Wednesday!!  What will you ink?!

Christmas Lantern Gift Box

Hello!  Today starts a new challenge at Scrap-Creations Challenge Blog !  Kristen wants to see us get creative this week and make a Christmas gift or a gift holder .   I chose to make another Lantern/Gift Box, much like my LOC birdhouse box .  You can find a picture tutorial for these HERE .  I added a Flameless, battery-operated candle inside, but you can also use it to put small gifts in too =o) I used the new Holiday Sheep digi set by Doodle Pantry .      My Lantern / Gift Box ( the box attached under the lid helps keep the lid in place ) I used liquid applique on the sheep to make 'em fluffy, and "faux snow".  Hope your Tuesday's Terrific!  Now go INK SOMETHING !  *Ü*
