Challenge #260-Kids
Make a project for a Kid 

This Weeks Sponsor
Bugaboo Stamps


  The prize is 7 digital stamps!

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

And, if you submit a project in our challenge that isn't a card, you will get two entries for a chance to win the prize instead of one! 


Inspiration


For my take on the challenge I created a layout to showcase my nephews 2015 t-ball season!
I used 4 images from the Cricut All Sports cartridge and added on a few Kelly Purkey stickers
Very clean and simple!

I hope you'll join us this week for the Kids challenge
Head over HERE to see the rest of the design teams creation & link up your project!

Hero Arts Makeover Challenge


Have I blinded You?
I took this photo on what could quite possible be the sunniest day I've ever seen.
Sorry about that. 

Moving On
There's a fun challenge going on!

To celebrate Hero Art's new website they are having makeover challenge
give a past project a face life. Well here is my past project:
This is a card I made a long time ago when I started cardmaking and blogging.
Clearly, I wasn't quite aware of common card sizes - Pretty sure I made it up.

My new card uses the same stamp set, but adds a little pep to its step with
some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Wink of Stella!
I - Love - These - Markers
Not only can you blend color to color, but blend different colors together.
LOVE

Anywho
Thanks for Visiting
Happy Hump Day!

Birthday Shaker Card with Hero Arts


It September 1 and that means its time for a new challenge over at a2z scrapbooking!
I think you're going to love this months theme:
SHAKER CARDS!

If you've never played along at a2z you should! All you have to do is submit you take on our
challenging, using Hero Arts product, and you could win a $25 gift card to the store!
The a2z scrapbooking store is your 1 stop shop for Hero Arts goodies AND because we're pals, you can use my discount KRISTINA15 for 15% off a $25+ purchase!

This Birthday card is for my Aunt, Her and my fathers (twins) birthday is today!
Her favorite color is purple so I used a fun sequin mix from Pretty Pink Posh and the current
color scheme challenge over at the My Favorite Things challenge blog.

To assemble my shakers I used the We R Memory Keepers fuse tool, it makes shakers so much
more easy and you don't have to worry about your shaker elements sticking to the edges!


Here's the play by play:

I assembled the main card base and layers together and ran the whole thing through my Big Shot to cut out the square window. It can't cut through all 3 layers but it embossed a little guide so I knew where to line the die back up to cut through each piece. I cut the window all the way through to my main card base and adhered the shaker window with Tombow Mono Xtreme Adhesive in the center.

I cut out a pretty bow with the new die from Pretty Pink Posh 'Twine & Bows' and then stamped a sentiment on the front and inside through the window in Hero Arts Passion Flower ink!

Because my window was wonky, I used my Kelly Craft Get- It Straight™ Laser Square to align my sentiments. If I have an uneven line anywhere on a project I tent auto-correct for it and everything ends up wonky, so the laser square keeps me in line!









I hope this has provided some inspiration for you to join us this month in the Shaker Card challenge, full supplies list is linked below and don't forget use code KRISTINA15 at check out in the a2z scrapbooking supplies store for 15% off!
