You light up my life

Hi, and Happy Thursday!

Gloria here from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot. Today I would like to share with you a  A2 size card I made using the light bulb from PPPR "Laughing Light Bulb Cutting Files"  and one faces from the PPPR "Acorn Faces Cutting Files". I love being able to change the faces and images. I inked the light bulb with Tim Holtz squeezed lemonade distress ink and used chalk for the cheeks. The sentiment is from Pink By Design "Be Mine" stamp set. I cut the hearts from PPPR "Heart Balloon Cutting Files"

What I used:
Tim Holtz squeezed lemonade distress ink
 Pink By Design "Be Mine" stamp set
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Memento London Fog
Action Wobble
Before I go I just want to remind you that there's till time to play along in our PPPR "Hot Hot Hot " challenge going on now till August 2nd. For more details and to link up click HERE.  
Thank You for stopping by.

Happy Birthday!

Good Morning! 

One of my crafty friend's birthday is coming up and I thought I would make her a card.  When I make her cards I like to use die cuts that I know she can use again for a scrapbook layout. Recently she went to the beach with her grandsons so I thought I would make her a beach themed card.  

The boy is from the NEW Dress Up Boys 1 Cutting Files.  His swim suit & arm bands are from the NEW Dress Up Boy Swim Suit 1 Cutting File.  The surf board is from the Surf's Up Cutting Files.  The sand is from the Borders 5 Cutting Files.

The sentiment is from Pretty Cute Stamps Sea Life Sentiments.  

Don't forget to grab the Friday Freebie.  It goes perfectly with the Surf's Up Cutting Files.   There will be a NEW one on Friday.  

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great week!

I absolutely love the "Home Sweet Home" cutting file and I used the cute cutting files to create this card:

Added lots of layers with foam tape :)

Tucked the tree behind the house and added the sentiment I created to top. 

added some flowers and the grass trim which are both on the "Flower Assortment" cutting file..
and decided to add a "hidden" key, which is the "Heart Lock" cutting file

The clouds I used are on the "Kite and clouds" cutting file
and a few drop of liquid pearls for small details..

There's no Place Like.....

Hello and Happy Sunday!! Brianna here sharing today's post. Today's card was very quick and easy to put together. I used the print and cut feature of my Silhouette and of course an adorable file from the PPPR store.
Gnomies Cutting Files
I popped my images up using some 3D foam squares and then added some faux stitching. I seen this sentiment in my stamp stash (Sugar Peas Design) and that's what made me decide on these two images. I made a simple bow by wrapping some jute around my card and layering it under my sentiment.
I think this would be a perfect little welcome to the neighborhood or I heard you moved card, don't you!?
I hope you all enjoyed and I will see you all soon <3

You Are My Lobster

Woo, hoo!!!!! I just LOVE Saturdays, don't you! Today, I have a fun little card to share with you. Here it is:

I got this cute little guy from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) Little Lobster Cutting Files. I thought he was perfect to go with this sentiment from the Pretty Cute Stamps Sea Ya Soon Stamp Set (which I stamped on a banner from the PPPR Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files set). I created the card base by mirroring a shape from the PPPR Layered Labels 3 Cutting Files set and welding the two resulting shapes together. The dotted paper is from the PPPR Spring Fling Polka Dots Digital Paper Pack. I added some pretty ribbon and some doodles, and my fun card was all done! I hope you like it!

Don't forget that there is a HOT Challenge going on right now. You can upload anything that has to do with HOT and uses PPPR files for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the PPPR Store. Why not give it a try? You can find out all of the details here:

I break into a smile just looking at it! If this card doesn't make you smile, then you are in need of an intervention:

Here's a close up of the adorable light bulb...and his puffy cheeks...which you can create by outlining and filling in with clear drying adhesive.

Life is Delicious

Life is Delicious

 Howdy! Leah Schaeffer here sharing a little Summer delight! S'mores! Yum! 
 I was saying over at my blog that I was having trouble coming up with a design. Just a little creative freeze but after coming up with the super big graham cracker, the rest came together very quickly. I think that may be a good trick when you are stuck. Come on with at least one grand element for a page and then create around that. That can help, promise! 
 Well these fun photos are from a recent trip to the beach. We had a great time, obviously! LOL! 

 The page was fine as is but having chose a busy background pattern I felt like there needed to be a bit more color around the page. Which is why I chose to add in some punched leaves, the colors directly coordinating with the leaves from the background paper. It's those small details that really add up in the end! Like stamping on the large word in my title piece adds just a bit more interest (and yes, I know I didn't spell it right, oh well!)

S'mores Cutting File

 A bit of a shorty post but hey, it's Monday! Get in, get inspired…get out! =)
