SOUS Project Life Challenge - Top Note

Here is my SOUS Project Life DT Challenge - Top Note. At first I will have to admit that I didn't know what a top note was until I saw Nanne's example. Then I was very excited about what I could do for this challenge. I used my Cricut and the Cricut cartridge Accents Essentials to get the top note shape cut out. I cut it at 4". I then decided to use it for my weekly title spot. I thought that the date would fit nicely inside and it did. I then finished it off with some twine. 
You really need to give this one a try. It's very simple to do. If you don't have a die cutting machine, you could trace one out or simply make one of your own. Plus this month we have a very special sponsor for our April challenge drawing. You have 2 weeks to submit to today's PL challenge. All submitted projects will be up for grabs to win the blog candy!
This is much more then just any old kit club, you will love everything they have to offer. And for the month of April you have the chance to win a $30 gift certificate to their store.
Well thank you so much for coming to my site and for looking at my Project Life challenge project. Hope you all have a great week!

Thank You card

Hello again. Here is a really cute card I made for another card challenge over at My Craft Spot. The challenge this week was to make something with the phrase Thank you on it. I pulled out my Cricut cartridge Live Simply for the cute little worm on the branch. I cut it out at 4". I then used my metal dies for the dollies. The yellow enamel dot is one I made myself. I watched a You Tube video on how to melt down Pony Beads to make enamel dots. It was really cool. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Live Simply
  • Paper: SEI
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Stickles: Lime Green
  • Twine: Doodlebug
  • Metal Dies: My Craft Spot
  • Stamp: My Craft Spot "Tiny Tags 2"
  • Ink: Versafine in Onyx Black
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
Thanks so much for looking at my blog. Have a great week!

Easter Chick Card

If you are looking for my Project Life layout please scroll down. Here is an Easter card that I created. I got the idea from the challenge on the site Fantabulous Cricut where the challenge is Bye Bye Birdie, any project with a bird on it. The picture came out a little wonky as the red stripes are supposed to be a bright pink. The chick is from Create a Critter 2 and was cut at 4". The card itself is an A2 size card, 4-1/4"x 5-1/2". Here is the rest of the details:
  • Cricut cart: Create a Critter 2
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Paper: Unknown
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments"
  • Ink: Versafine in Onyx Black
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
This is a pretty easy card to make but yet a really cute one too. Thanks for looking and have a great day! :)

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Neon

Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Challenge: Neon. This was a hard challenge for me to do as I did not have anything neon in my stash. I finally used a piece of poster board that I had used for a yard sale sign and cut a little piece off for a 4"x3" card. I then used a couple brighter pieces of paper for the 4"x6" next to it.
I do want to let you all know that we have another sponsor this month. It is Creative Embellishments. Play in ANY of our March challenges for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. Winner will be announced April 11th. 

Thanks so much for looking at my project and have a great week!

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Add a Pocket and Pull Out Card

Here is my project that I did for SOUS Project Life Challenge - Pocket with card. The card inside says " Happy Valentines Day". This challenge is a pretty easy one to do. You do have to remember that it would be easier to get to your card if you put it on the right side page. Most of the cards on this page are from Scraptastic kit club. I tried to keep the Valentine feeling in my layouts by using more pink and red this week. 
Remember also that we have a sponsor this month with some special blog candy to one lucky winner of this months challenges.
Have a great week! :)

Alligator Birthday card

Hi again! Here is another card that I created. I love the colors in this card. They are so bright and always make me think birthday! I first used the Sketch Challenge on Fantabulous Cricut to get the design of my card. Then I used the Puns Challenge over at My Craft Spot for the Snappy Birthday saying. The alligator is cut at 1-1/2" which may seem small but if you cut him much larger you will need a longer card. My card base is 4-1/4"x 5-1/2". This was a very easy card to make. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Birthday Bash
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Pattern paper: Echo Park "That's My Boy"
  • Cuttlebug: Spots and Dots
  • Twine: We R Memory Keepers
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper "More Punny-licious"
  • Ink: Versafine
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
I really hope you enjoy this card. It was such a blast to make. Hope you have a great day! :)
