Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #6 - Sketch Challenge with a twist...

Good morning everyone and welcome to challenge #6 at Craft Hoarders Anonymous! This is sort of a long post so get your cup of coffee or tea and lets have a little visit!  I'm so glad that you came!   Our sponsor for the whole month of April is Hampton Arts and they have supplied a most wonderful gift to be given away at the very end!  This wonderful crop case comes  minus the supplies of course.

Hampton Art, founded in 1980 in picturesque Long Island, NY, has been inspiring stampers, crafters and papercraft enthusiasts for over 20 years.  One of the earliest "art stamp" companies, Hampton has transformed over the years to become a complete provider of creative products such as stamps, inks, papers, kids crafts, stationery, scrapbooking supplies and card making accessories for crafters of every age and skill level.  We focus on working together with other companies through strong, personal relationships and licensing partnerships to consistently bring fun, inspiring products to market.  We have a portfolio of brands including Hampton Art, Studio G, Diffusion Ditto, and our latest addition, Ki Memories, acquired in 2012.  Our products can be found via most national craft retailers at over 5,000 stores across the US and Canada.  We also ship to 20 different countries across the globe.  Hampton was acquired by National Spinning Co., Inc. of  Washington, NC, our current home, in 2008.  For more information, visit our website.

Now here is the sketch you will need to follow:


Now the twist part of this challenge is for you to go into your hoard and find something old and something new to use on your project.  You have until midnight on May 4th to make your project and link it to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.  All the challenge rules and regulations are listed there as well.  I am so excited to see your projects!

Please note: You do NOT have to use Hampton Art products to enter the challenge. As long as your project uses the inspiration sketch, you may use whatever products you have in your stash!


Here is my card I created for this challenge:


My something old is the design paper, the script stamp I used on the flower petals and the flower die. My something new is the Studio G stamp the banner die and the clock dies.  I stamped the "Life is Good" and then fussy cut it to use on my card.  I love this stamp and you will be seeing more of it to come!

You can see what the design team members created by checking out the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog or you can click on their names on the sidebar of my blog and you will be taken to their individual blogs and you can comment on their projects.  Go and visit and leave them some love!  We all love hearing from you!

OK, now it's your turn...show me what you got!  I can't wait to see what you come up with and remember use some of that hoard!

Once Upon a Springtime.....Graphic 45 card.....


Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday and the fringes of another weekend!  Where did this week go?  I have been so very busy doing Spring clean up and getting my garden plot ready to plant that I have barely taken a moment to breathe.  I guess I need to practice what I preach but I'm afraid my weekend will consist of more of the same.  Weeds are jumping and there is lots of scrubbing to do as well.  I did take a moment to play in my craft room yesterday and I made this card using the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime collection.  I still have a page or two left but it is mostly the greens.  Well I like green too, so here it is.

My card is 5 1/4" square and just full of little things that I hope catch your eye.  It's pretty straight forward and I will have a supply list below.  I need to make a box to send this one inside so it can be protected.

OK that's it for me this morning.  I'm off to visit some blogs and see what's going on in your worlds!  Have a great day and a wonderful weekend!

Supplies:
Green card stock
Graphic 45 (Once Upon a Springtime Paper)
Spellbinders Flourish Trim die
Heartfelt Creations HCD 728 Timeless Amour Die
glitter
Pearl flourish
Dimensional tape

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #254

Good morning all you happy Wednesday snoopers and welcome to WOYWW!  I am here to show off my desk this morning and let you have a small glimpse into my little world.  If you would like the details on this little get together, just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  She created this and has all the instructions posted there to help you if you want to join us.  We are all a little snoopy at heart and I do love to visit every one's desk and see what you have going on.


There is not a lot going on here.  I've just finished a project that I cannot share with you right now but this is the leftover mess.  Since then I have just been cutting die cuts, lots of die cuts and will be listing them in my shop soon.  I did recently purchase a paper towel holder for my desk so now I don't have to go rummaging into a drawer to get one when my hands are all dirty.  A pretty good thing to have.

Well that's it for me this morning.  Hopefully next week I'll have something wonderfully creative to show you, but for today....this is it.  Now I'm off to visit as many desks as I can this morning!

We have been enjoying gorgeous weather in these parts the last couple of days and suddenly I'm feeling overwhelmed with yard work.  Easter is just around the corner and I have one last Easter card to share with you.  I used the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper and a sparkly flourish from Heartfelt Creations to make this special card.


The bottom of the card is finished off with some crinkled seam binding and a bow.  Lots of distressing  and layers with the sweet flourish peeping out from under the corner.

Now I'm off for more coffee and to visit some blogs.  It's still early so I can linger over my cuppa and visit a spell!

Supplies:
G45 Sweet Sentiments Paper
Canson Watercolor Paper
Seam Binding
Ranger Vntage Photo Distress Ink
HCD 718 Decorative Chateau Gate Die From Heartfelt Creations
Glitter

WOYWW # 253

Good morning everyone and welcome to WOYWW!  Now if you are wondering about this you can head over to Julia's blog and she has all the specifics there.  Julia is the creator of this little bit of madness we all have on Wednesdays!


Front and center is a little grapevine wreath that I am going to re-work.  It has some of the colors I need but it also had peach colored bows that don't match anything in my house anymore.  I will add some burgundy colored flowers and maybe some green ribbon and it should work better for me.

Also you can see my new We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper with the teal colored handles.   I am learning to love this new tool.  And right behind the wreath you can see my new Tim Holtz Sponge holders.  They are small enough to handle even for flower petals.  I love them!

OK that's it for me today.  I'm off to visit as many of the desks as I can!
