The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge: Anything To Do With School

Hello everyone and welcome to a brand new challenge at The sisterhood of Crafters!  We are always happy to bring to you a new challenge every two weeks.  This challenge is hosted by:  Agata!


Since it is the time of year for school to begin I decided on a "Back to School" card.  I found the free owl image and printed and fussy cut then glued to my pretty die cut.  I had the little wooden ruler pieces and the ink pen nib and just glued them together and attached them to the card front.  My sentiment was typed and printed by me.  I actually like the way it turned out!  

Now get busy and create something for this challenge and link it to The Sisterhood of Crafters.  I can't wait to see what you make.  Also while you are there have a look around at what the other designers have created for you.  I promise you will be inspired!

August Heartfelt Creations Alumni Design Team Blog Hop...

Today my post is a bit different in that I am paying tribute to my sweet MagPie. She passed on Aug. 20 and I'm struggling to say the least.  I don't usually share such personal news, but this blog was named after her way back when all this began in December of 2008 and she was a constant companion all these years. Her little bed always sat in the corner of my craftroom. Bella and I are grieving but I know she and I will become closer and hopefully have many years to enjoy each other. This card will be set aside as a keepsake to remind me of Maggie and all the special moments we shared.

One of the things I love about Heartfelt Creations is their products are so well thought out and compliment each other in every way.  Their collections are timeless and this morning my card lets the beautiful paper do all the heavy lifting. I just used the gorgeous papers from the Posy Patch Paper collection and did some matting and some fussy cutting and called it a day.  How simple is that? Colors, images and sentiments all match without having to think about it!



There will be a $25 gift certificate for one lucky person.  You must visit as many of the participating designers as you can and leave a comment on each blog because we never know from which blog the winner will be chosen.

If you arrived here from: Amarilys Doria's blog you are right on track and your next stop will be: Emila van den Heuvel's blog.

You have until Midnight, August 28th. to leave a comment on as many of our blogs as you can.  The winner of the $25 gift certificate will be announced on Saturday August 29th.  Good luck to everyone!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #324

Good Wednesday morning everyone!   I'm here to share with you this morning a picture of my workdesk and be a part of the worldwide blog hop hosted by Julia Dunnit.  Julia has everything listed on her blog giving all the details.  It's so much fun to be able to visit everyone and see what is happening in their worlds each Wednesday.  So why don't you come join us and be forewarned, this is very addictive!


This is a card I had been working on and just finished.  I love how the color in between the embossing folder turned out.  I think it looks very elegant.  And of course I have to have Heartfelt Creations flowers!  Lying about is lots of remnants; the inks I used, a bone folder, some die cut flower petals, lots of glue and a Spellbinders die.  See the clothes pin on the white storage unit?  I use that when I glue something and don't want to sit and hold it.

Well that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to link this to Julia's blog and start my round of visits!  Everyone have a wonderful Wednesday!

Over the Rainbow....

Hello everyone!  Welcome to a brand new challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters.  This one is hosted by:  Sandi Lee.

In 1939 "The Wizard of Oz" premiered in Oconomowoc, WI.  Judy Garland became famous for the movie's song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."  The movie premiered in Hollywood on August 15.  To celebrate...lets see a RAINBOW on your creation.


I Googled "Free Rainbow Papers" and this is what popped up!  So I printed it off and got to looking around and I found this butterfly in a box with some other left over pieces from another project; it matches perfectly.  I cut the base card to make a belly band and embossed it with a folder from Anna Griffin and slipped this pretty paper inside.  Since I don't own a huge lot of sentiment stamps I typed and printed mine on white cardstock and matted it with some of the rainbow paper...perfect!  On the inside of the card I just covered the exposed paper with another piece of cardstock to hide the belly band.

Now get busy and create something for this challenge and link it to The Sisterhood of Crafters.  I can't wait to see what you make.  Also while you are there have a look around at what the other designers have created for you.  I promise you will be inspired!
