Pumpkin Upgrade!?!

Wowzers!  It's getting close...Create And Craft TV is coming to the U.S.!!!













      I can't believe it is almost Thanksgiving!  There are so many things to be grateful for.  (I mean on top of the fact that Create And Craft TV is coming to the U.S!!!)  Family, friends, health and oh yes, Crafting is definitely on my list!  (Like many of you  I am sure!)  Anyhoo, while I was getting all of my seasonal decor out, I found a plain pumpkin.  I felt like it needed to be dolled up a little.  I used a small dremel to carve the "Thanks".  I grabbed an antique doily, some flowers and colored straight pins from my stash and Wah-lah! Super easy, but I think it was just that little "something" extra it was lacking.  
     I know we all have countless seasonal projects coming up.  This is just one example of a speedy "upgrade" project.  I can't wait to dig in and really get going on some bigger crafts.  Lots of ideas starting to flow, now if there were just more hours in the day!!!

Follow Us! Mini Album with Madge's Embellishment Kit

     Hey hey hey crafty guys and gals!  It's that time again...time to share with you the project I made using the Fab-U-Lous and Super fun new Embellishment Kit from Madge's Scrappin Lounge!!!  Here is a pic of this months kit:
                                                   
     This kit is such a Fantastic deal.  You just know you are going to get spoiled when Madge is in charge!  Here are some details on how it works:
At the beginning of the month of February Madge asked for several crafters to help her with a fun 3 month embellishment trial.  These crafters are committed for 3 months, they are receiving her embellishment kits each month for $12.00 including Shipping! Madge had advertised for 5 crafters, however by the time we were done she had 21 crafters! Each month many of these great crafters have chosen to showcase some fun projects using the Embellishment kit! Today we are sharing projects made with the April kit! Some may be through Facebook Pages, some may be sharing through instagram or You Tube, others have blogs....  Madge is going to give (1) "Mystery Prize Pack" away! How do I win, you are asking??? Simple, check out all of the links that Madge has posted and leave them some love and go back to Madge's blog to comment that you did and YOU could be the winner! 
 Madge will be taking names for the waiting list for her embellishment kits, if you are interested in these kits please email her: Madge@thescrappinlounge.com or IM her on Facebook that you are interested. 
      I just L-O-V-E this kit.  It comes with a booklet of 20 cards.  For my project, I chose to make a mini album using the cards.
Every item I used came in the kit except the twine!!!  Here is a shot of the inner pages:

I have so much fun playing with the goodies that come in these kits!  Can't wait until next time and I highly recommend you get a kit of your own!

Have a super crafty day!

No Guts...

     Hellooooo Crafty peeps!  I am super-dee-duper excited to share with you my project today because I used the A-Ma-ZING and uber fun new Embellishment Kit from Madge's Scrappin Lounge!!!  Here is a pic of this months kit:
     This kit is such a Fantastic deal.  You just know you are going to get spoiled when Madge is in charge!  Here are some details on how it works:

Some may be through Facebook Pages, some may be sharing through instagram or You Tube, others have blogs....  Madge is going to give ONE of these kits away! How do I win, you are asking??? Simple check out all of the links that Madge has posted and leave them some love and go back to Madge's blog to comment that you did and YOU could be the winner! Winner will be chosen March 11th!
 Madge will be taking names for the waiting list for her embellishment kits, if you are interested in these kits please email her: Madge@thescrappinlounge.com or IM her on Facebook that you are interested. 
     I did a little something different today.  I used the fun embellishments on a canvas I made for my daughter.
     This is one of my favorite sayings.  "Dream", "Hope", etc;  all of those are fine and well but this really gets the point across and suits my daughter so much better!  (She is a spitfire to say the least!)  I cut the bottom off of some of the banner pieces from the kit to make the chevron.  I used alphabet stickers on the turquoise canvas and then misted over them with white spritz and removed the stickers.  I cut one of the chalkboard labels from the kit for the top piece and just used the banner and buttons as they were.  I punched a flower from the banner and added my own skull jewel and added a couple black jewels to the letters an wah-la!!!
I hope you have enjoyed this project.  
     Make sure to check out all the details for the embellishment kit and get the links for other projects using the kit by visiting here:   Madge's Scrappin Lounge

Thanks for stopping in and have a super crafty day!

"Sweet 16" with CANDi


  
     Hi there crafty peeps!  My friend's sweet daughter turned "16" over the weekend.  She had a super fun "Sweet Sixteen" party and I made this card to go with her gift.  I chose to work with the Love Parade--"Lipstick Pink" CANDi, seen here:

I chose to incorporate some of the bright colors of the party:
I used so many different elements on this card:  embossed card base, patterned paper, doily, spritz, crown embellishment, twine, stickles (to polka dot the CANDi) and of course CANDi to make the "16".
Here is a close up of the CANDi:
           
                Thanks for stopping by...
If you'd like to get some CANDi of your very own (I strongly recommend it),

In the US many online retailers are available including here-> The Scrapbooking Queen's Royal Castle Shoppe

Have a super crafty day :)
