Project Share - Challenge at CARDZ TV

Hey guys! In my early morning delirium I was out surfing my usual blogs and found a challenge over at CARDZ TV. I was able to get into my craft room early to get this project done, thank goodness! It was torture to film this morning because I couldn't have the fan on due to noise and was sweating like a M&M at a candy party.

The challenge was to make a Christmas card, tag, layout or craft using anything you'd like! You can check out the challenge here.

Core'dinations cardstock
Silhouette Online Store - #35894 - 3D Santa Christmas Box Tote
Silhouette Cameo
Foam Squares
Scotch 1/4" ATG

I think this little, well I really can't say little, Santa box is ADORABLE!! In the end, he measures about 8.25h X 5.5625w. I would recommend using different paper if you wanted to fill these. The core'dinations paper leaves it a little flimsy in my opinion.

I wanted to share another project I completed last night. It was too dark to film in my room, I apologize. I have to get some better or more light to be able to film at night. I have huge bay windows that work with me in the day and against me at night. Anyhow, onto the project!

K&Company Patterned Paper - Chocolate Neapolitan Scrap Pad
Silhouette Online Store - Tea Bag Dispenser - #266 89
Silhouette Cameo
Scotch 1/4" ATG

The tea bag dispenser measures 5.125h X 3w.I made this one for my mom's birthday. She really likes Stash Tea, Licorice Spice flavor.

Well, that is all I have for you today. I'm hoping to get into my craft room again tonight when the temperature is in the 60's and tolerable. I have to get a couple cards made for Emma, my son's girlfriend. I am not making one for him though! The cards are for the gifts my mom and I got her. I do have some super easy card kits that I have purchased from the SOS that he could put together. I am going to try and talk him into making her card. Both Emma and her mom are scrappy so I think it would be super cool if Ry his own card. It just gives it something extra, ya think?!?!?!

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy crafting!!

Personal Challenge - CHECK!!

Hey all you crafty cats! For those of you that follow my blog and/or You Tube you know that I issued a challenge. Mainly to myself, but am really hoping some of you out there will join in.

I have noticed on You Tube lots of haul videos from all my favorite channels, but not a lot of projects recently. We are all guilty of this. We buy these adorable, phenomenal scrapbooking supplies we just have to have and they sit. We have all these wonderful ideas in our minds, but they just don't make it out of there!

I realized, I was one of the offenders. So, I issued the challenge: Make three projects between Sunday, June 30 and Tuesday, July 2. I was successful :) I actually made FOUR, count them four projects, I'm not proud or anything.....

I have managed to get one video uploaded that shows projects two and three. I actually ended up making a part 2 on that video and then have one more that needs to be uploaded. I'm getting them up there as fast as You Tube will allow/process!

So I wanted to show you a couple still shots of my projects and you can watch the video to see how they came together and the supplies I used.

Project One - My First Smash Book Pages

Project Two & Three - Altered Canvas & "Recipe Box"

Part One:

Part Two:

Project Four - Silhouette Print & Cut Snap Cards

I will update as soon as video four is processed and I will add all of the supply information tomorrow.

If some of you are interested, please post a link to your project for this challenge on this or the July 1st post either here or on You Tube. I would love to see what you guys create!!!

Please stop by tomorrow for the final video and the supply list for all projects.

Happy Crafting!!

Hey crafty cats! I wanted to share with you one of the projects I have completed.


Silhouette Online Store - Fast Lane Side Tab - Design ID #7138
K&CO - Blue Smashbook
Ink: Stampin' Up Soft Suede Ink; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

My Creative Time - Journal It! Stamp Set, Stitched Journal Die

When you watch my video you will see that I have issued a challenge to all that are up to it! We all buy lots of goodies, but A LOT of them go into a "collection" in our scraprooms. So, I gave myself a challenge to do three projects by Tuesday, July 2. I have completed one, which is the video above and have two others that are about half done. I will have videos for those projects too.

So I would love to see if you accept my challenge and create something with the supplies you have before you buy anything else. If you do, please post a link here under the comment section. I would love to see what you create :)

Don't forget to stop back by to check out my other two projects. I have given myself until 11:59 PM EST to have the projects completed and the videos uploaded.

Thanks for stopping by today, until next time....

Happy Crafting!!!
