Pickin Pumpkins

Autumn is here!! It’s getting cooler and the leaves are starting to change.  We took a drive through the ski hills of Saint Sauveur and the changing leaves were gorgeous! This week at Crafty Creations we are making AUTUMN  themed cards and it’s perfect timing since it’s a My Memories Weekend with some awesome digital Autumn kits available! I made my card for a few challenges using https://www.mymemories.com/software and digital designer papers available at My Memories. CHALLENGES: Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes! Digitally Sweet Challenge: Ribbon (100% digital) Craft Us Crazy– Halloween Simply Create Too: Autumn/Fall Dilly Beans: Fall is in the air I’ve used my own A Creative Need DIGITAL IMAGE available at CAN YOU DIGI IT.   Isn’t this LITTLE PUMPKIN  adorable all dressed up for Halloween?

Feathered Friend

I was inspired by the colors from the Songbird Collection in coloring my Feathered Friend from Can You Digi It? .   This image was part of my August release if you missed it. Songbird is one of my all time favourites from Prima Marketing!  The colors, patterns and sweet images just make me sigh with pleasure when I look at them!   I’ve combined a few panels and added a strip of washi tape too.  All the paper edges and image is sponge distressed with ‘old paper’ distress ink. The tag is made by punching out some light weight scrap cardboard and covering it with a leftover bit of Songbird paper.  I used a Stampin’ Up! paper punch.  I also punched a tiny heart and covered it with Songbird dp and glued it to the corner.  I tied a bow with ribbon seam binding and clipped the mini clothes peg to it, and voila! … a sweet shabby tag embellishment that helped use up some scraps too! Challenges: Paper Cupcakes: Things with Wings Totally …

Back to School!

Didn’t the summer go by too quickly!??  It flew by for us! I can hardly believe that my boys are already back in school and either do they.  I wish I could have had just a couple more weeks…<sigh> But there is a positive side to everything I guess…it may just give me a little more time in my craft room! I’ve made a card for this week’s Crafty Creations challenge.  The theme if you haven’t already guessed is BACK TO SCHOOL! 🙂 I’ve used an image from Robyn’s Fetish as they are sponsoring the challenge this week.   This boy reminds me of mine as they are both computer savvy and spend a lot of time playing all kinds of games as well as doing projects and research during the school year.  I’ve use My Memories Suite software to create the paper background including the smily face, a +, and paperclips at the bottom.  I printed and copic colored the image, and attached the red paperclip.  I’ve used kraft cardstock on white cs for …
