Simon Monday Challenge: Sweet Treats

Simon Says Sweet Treats: Hello all! Thank you so much for visiting - I know it's been awhile since I've posted - I scrapbook in my basement and it's very cold down there right now and also my 2 year old won't let me get much done when I'm down there. 

But I did want to show off my Easter shadowbox insert. Doodlebug just came out with their own inserts but I've made this awhile ago. I'm excited for their new inserts because they offer some different options - but I do love the ones I've made! I just love the shimmer from the jewels. I thought this would be a good addition to add to the Simon Says Monday Challenge of Sweet Treats with all the fun Easter items on the circle of stickers.

I'm hoping that I'll be able to scrap some more and make more cards here soon. Again- thanks so much for stopping by!

Simon Says: Bit O' Green

Bit O' Green Wednesday Challenge: Hello! It has been awhile since I've posted. It has been very cold in my basement where I scrapbook and my 2 year old won't let me be away from her for more then a fee seconds. So, it's been very hard to scrapbook or make any cards.

But, I did manage to make a Doodlebug St. Patrick's Day circle collage for the Simon Says Wednesday Bit O' Green challenge. I love making these and it's so simple!! You just need some white paper or vellum, make a circle in an 8x8 space, and start making a beautiful collage with stickers! As always, thank you so very much for stopping by and taking a look!

Simon Says: Anything Goes


Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: I haven't had much time this year (any by year, I mean January lol) to post or even make cards. I had Covid and it was thankfully very mild, but also my 2 year old hasn't let me have much time to myself lately. 

For today's challenge on the Simon Says Wednesday blog-  Anything goes! So I'm showing off what I made for my cousin and her new husband for Christmas. I bought the frame at Dollar Tree and added some pretty paper, stickers and rub-ons to make it special for them. Thank you so much for looking!

Monday Challenge


Simon Says Something New: I'd like to show off something I made a while ago but finally got to give away! It's a recipe book for my cousin that just got married and it has recipes from all of our family members so she has a bit of "history" as it has out great grandmother's and grandmother's recipes in it. I had meant to give it to her long ago but since it's the New Year I finally gave it to her as a new gift for her home she just moved in to this year (2022). I also made her a little gift of a tin that she can hang or even use on the refrigerator. The tin has paper cut out in a circle and stickers on it.  

It also goes with the Challenge on the Simon Says Monday challenge blog for 'something new'. Thank you for stopping by and taking a look!

Happy New Years Eve!


Time to Party with Simon Says: Happy New Year's Eve everyone! I have to admit that I don't really know what day it is, other then it's NYE. It's time to say goodbye to 2021 and hello to 2022 and I'm really, really hoping that this year doesn't suck like the last two years. 

I went to Joann's and bought a new Happy Planner so I can try my hand at budgeting and trying to loose some weight (again). We'll see how it goes lol. I'm also going to try and actually DO the classes I sign up for and not just horde everything. Maybe try and use what I have before I buy more. I wanted to make one more card of the year and also enter the Simon Says Monday Challenge with the theme of party! I hope you have a wonderful evening and a very safe, healthy and wonderful New Year!

A Year in Review Challenge 2021

Altenew Challenge: Altenew has some wonderful, well, everything! But they also have some wonderful inspiration and cards to give you lots of ideas for cards and scrap pages. For this challenge we have to choose one of the 12 color combos from the picture above. I chose the last one on the bottom left with the beautiful light pink, dark pink and green. Perfect for Christmas I think!

After die cutting the lights out of different colored paper, I stamped the little "filament" onto the die, then added some glitter and Glossy Accents to make it look like a real light! Adding some pop-dots, I think it looks almost like real lights lol. I have to say, I just love the colors! And since it's so very blingy with the glitter, I will be adding it to the Simon Says Challenge "Bling it On"!

Lawn Fawn & Simon Says Challenge

Sketch Challenge #114: It's been a very long time since I've played in a Lawn Fawn Challenge. I really like this sketch challenge because of all the possibilities. And since it's getting cold out, I've also added this card to the Simon Says Monday Challenge "Cold as Ice".

For my card, I stamped snowflakes with embossing powder onto watercolor paper. I then heat embossed them and wet the paper to put pink watercolor over it. After it dried, I wiped off the paper so the snowflakes came through. I die cut the words Let It Snow and embossed it then put glaze over it to make it stand out. And I just love the little reindeer sticking out to day hello!

Embossing Powder: Punch by WOW

Stay Crafty With Hero Challenge #30


Challenge #80 with Circles: I love finding older stamp sets that I bought long ago but forgot all about - and that's what happened with this Hero Arts stamp set. It took me a long time to figure out what to make with circles for the Challenge but I think this card turned out really nice! It's very hard to see but I also used some glitter pen on the circles. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
