Hello Crafty Friends

Welcome to our July Blog Hop featuring Masculine themed artwork. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

If you came from Diana Saunders then you are in the right place!

My first card is with the no worries paper pack and I just love this fish from B1535 Hooked on you.  I'm so sad the stamp set is retiring at the end of July! I coloured the fish with Shinhan and Copic markers.
This next card was made with the Jack paper and Jack Scrapbooking stamp set. I love the lumber jack man. I also coloured it markers and I roughed up the edges of the paper for texture.


Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Candra's Blog, to see more masculine ideas!

AHSC #219

Hello Crafty Friends!
   I have not been crafting in weeks it seems! We bought a fixer up house for my oldest daughter and some friends to rent, it has been exhausting working all day then spending time at the house at night! And we haven't done anything like this so know which steps to do first is stalling us. Anyway I managed to make a card for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! here is the sketch...

And the card I made uses the no worries paper pack..... I just love it! I also used the complements, ribbon and stamp set and thin cuts from no worries card making set Z3337. At first I didn't want to buy this set but it really is very versatile!
I love using the zip strips and this sketch was perfect for that! I hope you can squeeze in some time to play with us too!!

 This butterfly card featured using a cricut cut as a mask, sponging and rock n' roll stamping.
 This card featured the ink blot stamp set and sunflower from our cricut, with more sponging.
 This card features the shaving cream or marbling technique with re-inkers and our thin cuts.
 This card features our sparkle brush, and using washi tape
 This card features our shinhan markers, doodling, and dry embossing again.
 Straight stamping, doodling again :)

Some Kind of Wonderful Team Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Thank you for joining the Team Brea-ers blog hop. We focus on a different paper pack each month and this months paper pack is called "Some Kind of Wonderful"!

If you have come from Emilys Scrap Room Then you are in the Right place!!

For my project I made the corporate layout but I think it will be an easy layout to add pictures to. Do you ever do that? make up layouts without the pictures? I do, and when I scrapbook I go through the layouts first to see if one will "fit" my pictures.  Here is the layout....

I also made a card....my friend had the bow in her stash and I think its just so cute!!
Please continue on to Sheena's Blog to see some more artwork with this paper pack!
I hope you have enjoyed our little blog hop. Please comment you were here and enjoyed our work, or found inspiration, it helps us to continue to post.
Until we meet again

I also used ink blot and the Artbooking cartride for the All star sentiment which I cut out from black glitter paper. What do you think? What will you do with this sketch?

ABC Blog Hop Featuring the letter "D"

Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter D.  This may be the name
of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their # element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Diana's Blog then you're on the right track!
    I thought it would be fun to join this blog hop featuring a different letter each time. This one is featuring D and I decided to do a card with DISTRESSING. I made the paper rose from the new Flowermarket Cartridge and ink distressed the petals and leaves were crumpled, sanded and inked.


Here is  a closeup of the flower......
I did the rose at 2" and it was tricky to get the center but it doesn't look to bad so I'm good with it.
Your next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Jen's Blog

In case you get lost along the way…go to Catherine Nowak's Blog for a complete list of participants!
Thank you for joining us
Till we craft again

Atlantic Hearts Sketch #201

Hello Crafty Friends,
    Welcome back! I cant believe we are on sketch #201! at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch.....
It fits in perfect with my spring fever, although the flowers can be any shape :) And here is my take....
I couldn't find the b&t I liked so I pulled out the fundamentals and this card came together very quickly after that. I think I put the flowers to far apart though and may need to adjust it but its kinda cute so I'm happy. Hope you will get to join us this week, we love seeing your creations.

If you have come from emilys scraproom then you are in the right place. Here is my first project: This Layout uses the compliments.
