Project Life Card Swap Diva

Tonight I completed one swap that I joined on Facebook Project Life Card Swap Diva ~ First Day of School. The requirement on this swap was to do a page A design. This is what I came up with
I used my Cameo for the cuts, these designs were purchased during the sale so glade I got them. I even managed to pull out some buttons in my stash. I really like how this came out. Well off to start the next challenge since I signed up for 9 swaps.

I forgot I made a card last night as well 
   My dear friend lost her sister this week and I made this card. Hopefully this will bring her a little peace.

Sunday completion

Well I didn't get as much done crafty as I would have liked but I did manage to finish two cards and made some envelopes to go with them. 

My one friend celebrated 5 yrs today to her husband. This card was made with the Cameo and ran through the cuttlebug.
 This is for my high school friend. They celebrated 24 yrs I believe. I also used the Cameo for this card.

Friday I took a break from work and went to CKC convention here in Tulsa. I only spent my money with Stamps of Life. I was standing right next to Stephanie and I didn't even noticed. I just assumed she was a tall lady Nd I told her she was short lol. I am 5'4 so it really got me off guard but I got some good stamps and dies well worth my money. I used the Anniversary stamp for both of the cards I completed yesterday.

Just a little something

Last night I really didn't want to go to bed so I completed two other projects. I made a card for my son for when he makes me a touch down this year 😏 I used CTMH Artbooking cart again. Only thing I don't like with the Cricut is the detail cuts but I used recollection card stock and I never have good luck with it in any cutter. I also did a PL page of my grandson first day of school using my die cutters from My Creative Time.

  Once again I am using my stash maybe at this rate in a few yrs I will have my stash down lol not.

 You can see the cut didn't do to well at the top. I used some white enamel on the football but I should have used glossy accent but no do overs for me. I also inked the football but I got a little messy but my son's football is in bad shape as well so this is a good fit for him.

Back to School Layout

Hello crafty friends, tonight I thought I would go in my room and complete a Layout of my grandson first day of school. I used close to my heart Artbooking cartridge. It is really sad that this cartridge is so simple that I just haven't pulled it out to create a lot of layouts. I really enjoyed this layout tonight. I used a paper pack from DCWV that I got a couple of years ago.

The title is on page 68 and the number boarder is on page 69

The photo frames are on page 69. The only thing I didn't like was that in CCR I didn't think to of my 4x6 photo and as you can see it isn't fitting in the mat well but since it is for me I am okay with it.

The tab is from My Creative time along with the stamp seriously?

I am entering this layout over at Scraps of color Sistha/Brotha Challenge week 33 and over at Mema's Crafts

Sunday share

Well I managed to complete a few crafty thins on Sunday. I completed a few pages for my 12x12 PL album and 1 page for my simple stores album. My cousin had given me a beautiful African gown for my birthday and I wore it to church and I had my son take a few pics of me in it so I thought I better document it.
 This one is for the 12x12 album
 This is my simple stories one

 I also added my pages to my nieces wedding in my album.

I watched a vid on YouTube over this simple photo mini and I pulled out some paper that I bought in the beginning of my crafting and now for the life of me I don't know why I bought it. It is K &Company but I do remember I use to watch Creations with Christine and she showed that paper and out I went to get it. I just broke the seal on it because I needed two sided paper for this mini.
 My daughter said it looks like wall paper lol

Then last I did my weekly organizers. I have three one for work, a pocket size I keep with me and one for my work desk.....
I do enjoy using my stash for these simple projects....

Until next time be bless

Sistah/Brotha Blogger Challenge 31 &32

I am so behind on my challenges that it isn't even funny. I went back to work and hubby was out of town so scrapping was on the back burner so I am playing catch up. Here are the two challenges I completed tonight for Scraps of Color Sistah/Brotha Blogger Challenges

**Week 32: You Got Me Going in Circles!**This week's challenge is to create cards, LO's, etc. with circles on them or in a circular shape! Yes, round embellies count--like bling, buttons and punches! Don't let this challenge have you going in circles! Anything Goes!!

I even pulled out the cameo and used it. I cut the title circle with the cameo and the cluster of circles at the bottom. I used the new application on my ipad for the find your wings & Fly stamp on my grand son picture. It is Rhonna Designs wonderful application. My grand son Kendrian was taking a jump 6yrs old this boy can play. I was at Joann's a few weeks back and I got the basketball paper for $.10 so you know I got all I could get since my grand son loves basketball so hopefully I will get a mini out real son.

**Week 31: Christmas in August ~OR~ Anything Goes**
(This challenge was supposed to be posted last week before the hop) so come out and share a Christmas creation or your favorite post from the last week!


I used the new Artbooking cartridge from ctmh to make this layout and my cameo to cut out the lady silhouette. I really need to change the blades in both of my machines it isn't a good cut on either image but since it is for me it is okay. This cartridge really makes doing a layout really simple and I love that.

Okay that is all for tonight hopefully tomorrow I can complete two more challenges.
