Dream Big

Hi Nicole here today and I have a card to share with you that I made for my coworker who is moving to Nebraska.  We are going to miss her so much at the dance studio. We had a going away party for her and this is the card my family gave to her.

I used the PPPR "Heart Balloon" cutting files to create my hot air balloon.  I did a bit of embossing to add some texture to the card.  This cute balloon goes together so quickly and could be used for so many fun occasions!!  For more info on my card please visit my BLOG.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hello Everyone, Brianna here with today's bloggy post. I am so happy to be home from being in California the past two weeks for business training. I was fortunate enough to have had enough time to get all of my Junes projects done and scheduled before I left. My creation today is using a cutfile that I converted over into a digi stamp.
Vintage Fan Cutting Files
I colored my converted file using my Spectrum Noirs and then stamped that sweet face using my Peachy Keen Stamps.
Markers Used:
I just typed my sentiment into my Silhouette program and then just arched it around the top of the fan.
Papers: American Crafts
Wooden Arrow: Studio Calico
Black Gel Pen
This card is so fun, colorful and simple and is sure to make anyone smile, I hope.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day!

Guest Designer ~ Glorajean Beardall and a New Friday FREEBIE!!!

Another Friday in the books! As always, we're bringing you a ton of great things! Our Guest Designer this week is Glorajean Beardall. You can find her at Glora's Crafts in blog world! She shares her creativity there with great tips and design. Take a look at what she created using PPPR files. 

This card is just adorable! It's bright and perfect for a summer birthday! Glora used the Little Swimmers Cutting Files to create this cheery card.

 Who wouldn't love this as a fun pretend play prop?!?! Glora created it using the Dress Up Girls Cutting Files and Dress Up Girls Princess Dress 1 Cutting FilesI can just hear the adventures and giggles in the background, and I love how she created the back to the doll.

Another sweet birthday creation!! How perfect is this card! Glora created this one using the Make a Wish Cutting Files. Whoever receives it will be smiling from ear to ear!

Unfortunately, my life is still a bit chaotic right now. We'll finally be totally moved out of our old house this weekend, and maybe I can finally get everything put away in the new house. For now, the crazy boxes and messiness around me and some technical issues meant that I didn't quite get done with the set I wanted to put in the store this week. But, I do have a Friday Freebie for you. This file will be available for free for one week, then it will move to the 99 Cent Downloads section of the store.

Also, I want to remind you that there is a VACATION challenge going on right now. You can link up any project you create using PPPR files that has anything to do with summer vacation, travel, relaxing...whatever you consider vacation-y. We hope you'll join in on the fun! You could win a $20 GC to the PPPR store! You can find out all of the details for the challenge here.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Birthday Popsicles

Happy Tuesday!
Kathy, from Kathy and Kids, here today to share with you a couple of simple but cute birthday cards.

I used "Popsicle 1" and "Popsicle 2" from the "Popsicle Fever Cutting Files"
I welded a duplicate of the base layer to make popsicle into a card.
The top layer is "popped up" using foam dimensionals.
I stamped a sentiment on the stick and then tied a bit of twine around it.
The sentiments are from Pretty Cute Stamps' newly released "Wish Big" stamp set.
Have you seen the new stamp sets?  Aren't they too cute?!
Enjoy your day and Thanks for stopping by!

I Love Dad

I Love Dad

  Leah Schaeffer here today to share with you the Father's Day card that I made for my husband. It certainly was a fun card to create! It really was! So much that a girlfriend of mine came over and made a copy of this for her hubby too! =) 
 A pretty simple card made a little more interesting by adding a few details. I wanted to reinforce the love theme here so I snuck in a few extra hearts, that happened to all be sitting on my desk from left over projects. Using letter stickers made this go a little faster as well. I did take the time to add the nails along the bottom. Not something that you have to do but again, each extra detail makes it that much more special. I love how the printed paper adds to it too! Paper choice in my opinion can make or break a project! 

 I wanted to share how I did the floss banner. I started with drawing a line between the screw diver banner poles. I then used that as a guide to run a line of glue. I cut the ends to be hidden under the edges. I then tied a separate bow around the popped poles. That was much easier then tying the ends another way. I always try to do my bows on their own if I can! =)

Thanks so much for visiting! We love having you stop in and see what we all are creating using the wonderful items from the shop!

I'll drink to that!

Good morning bloggers! Jeanne here, from Jeanne's Paper Crafts, with another design team project to share with you!

For today's project I decided to make a circle card with the Scalloped Circle cut files. I LOVE using a circle shaped card, but I find that I don't make too many of them. :) I think this one turned out great!
These super cute drinks are from the Happy Hour cut files. 
For the glasses, I cut an extra base layer out of some PaperTrey Ink Clear cardstock, and then added the drinks on top of it.  I didn't like the way the adhesive was drying, so I figured this would work just fine.
I chose the "I'll drink to that," sentiment from the Jaded Blossom Let's Toast stamp set. It matches perfectly with my funny little drinks!

Super Dad!

Happy Saturday, everyone, and Happy 1st Day of Summer! YAY!  I have a super quick card to share with you today that I created for my husband for Father's Day. Yeah, I know...Father's Day is over for this year. But, this would be a great card for a dad's birthday or just to say thank you. Here it is:

I created this shaped card using a file from the Super Mom & Dad Cutting Files set. I simply mirrored the base of the shape in Silhouette Studio and welded resulting mirror image to the base to create a card (the fold is at the top). Then, I had the perfect card for me to tell my husband that he is my super hero.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great Saturday, and be sure to come back tomorrow for more PPPR inspiration.

Life's a Breeze

Good Morning!

I'm so happy Summer is finally here.  I'm already planning several trips to the beach with the kids.  One place we like to go is Long Beach down by the Long Beach Aquarium.  They have a cool little walk way down by the water where you can see all the boats that are in the harbor.  I thought it would be fun to make a little card inspired by all the boats we see.  

I used the Star Spangled Card Cutting File for my card base.  The adorable Sail boat came from the NEW Sail Away Cutting File and the clouds came from the Kites & Clouds Cutting file.  I made the waves by using the Borders 5 Cutting File.

Don't forget to head on over to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and check out the Count Down to Summer Sale.  You'll get 40% off your ENTIRE purchase!

Also today is the day that the NEW stamps are being revealed over at Pretty Cute Stamps.  You can like the PCS Facebook Page HERE.  The link to the NEW Store is HERE

Thanks for stopping by today!

Welcome Baby card

Hi fellow crafters...
It's Nanné here from Nanne's Creations to share a cute little baby card I created for my daughters friend who is pregnant with her third boy :)

Here's the card I created:

one of my favorite color schemes that's for sure :)
I created this using several cutting files..
Baby Shower cutting file for the gift bag, pacifier and the baby bottle
Then I used the Changing Time cutting file for the baby powder and finally the Layered Labels 1  cutting file for the background and the title card..

how about a few close ups:

I added some liquid pearl drops for detail and attached everything with foam tape..

I ended up adding the bottles in front of the handle even though I really wanted them tucked behind it..
I felt like it would of lost the view of the amazing details these cutting files have..
but, they would been fun as pull out tags, why didn't I think of that sooner.. Doh!!..LOL
There you have my post for today..
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my post..
Hope you have a scrap-tastic week
