Happy Space Day!!

I joined a digital blogging group on SCS and am really enjoying all the girls company. We basically encourage each other with using digital images. Everyone has been a great resource providers for companies to find digital companies online.

Our first challenge was to create a card using green, black, and white. I found this cute alien by Digital Delights. His name is Alien Andy. Is he not so super cute!!!!!

Products: I used my Copics and Bic Mark Its to color in Alien Andy. I embelished with green eyelets, prima flowers, and buttons. (3 of my fav embelishments) the checkered paper is from Creative Memories and the green paper is from Bazzill. The sentiment is a creation I typed up on my computer.

Robot, Robot!!

Mysweetsix (Natalie) on SCS hosted a boy and girl border set swap. I joined the boy group and decided to go with a Robot theme. My oldest son LOVES robots so I knew I would have enough in stock to create enough sets. I ended up using the robot set from Cosmo Cricket. I fell in love with it and purchased the entire line when it first came out.
The stamp on the one photo mat is from Stamping Bella and is called giga WATT. He comes with 3 sentiments and is so fun to work with.
Each set of borders is a little different so I posted a picture of two different sets that I created.

So in love!!

So I know I say it over and over again how much I love card kit swaps. Thank you Colleen (cspangler) for hosting a b-day card kit swap. I'm always in need of b-day cards and always run short on ideas.

Products: I used all the elements inside of the card kit so I'm not sure on the manufacter of the products. However I used my copics and prisma markers to color the cupcake in. I then did the icing on the top with crystal stickles.

Disney Swap - Epcot Page

I created this 12x12 single page layout for an SCS friend's Disney Swap. I got the Design Studio about a month ago and have not really had a chance to play with it. So I thought I would try to make a title and weld it together. It actually was really easy to do and I think turned out pretty sharp.

MG10 - Digital Creation

This my first time participating in an online challenge. MyGrafico has a challenge to create a brown and teal card. It was optional to use an image of theirs but I thought what the heck, why not. They have some of the most amazing digital stamps on the web. The one I used is actually a freebie so you can jot over to their site and download it yourself.
Make sure you also check out Stephanie and Martha's blogs. They are DigiChick bloggers with me and always have great creations. They are also on MyGrafico's design team.
Thanks for the great challenge!!

DaydreamaBella I missed you!

Last night at 11pm I could not get to sleep because I wanted to spend some time crafting. I could not get it off my mind. So I decided to ink up my DaydreamaBella because I was missing inking up stamps after working with digi images for the past few weeks. You can tell I was tired because my inspiration was running short. However I could not fall asleep so I had to satisfy my craving!!

Wednesday Play Time

I had a real hard time focusing and finishing up this swap. I'm in a Disney accent swap on SCS. I decided to do Eeyore so I could use my Pooh font Cricut cartridge that I hardly use. My 3 year old wanted to play with moonsand tonight so while he was content playing I had some craft time and finished up Eeyore's set.

I saw this sketch in a Creating Keepsakes magazine and wanted to give it a go. I'm sorry, I used scraps to I'm not sure who all the products are by. The flower and sentiment stamp are both SU!

Lenny Loader

Here is Lenny Loader:
The inside of the card reads: Hope you have LOADS of fun on your special day. Happy Birthday!

I'm a week behind with my Sunshine's digital image release. Last week Lenny Loader was released. This is a great image for boys b-days, invitations, etc. With having two boys of my own I'm sure I'll find lots of use for it in the future.

Sunshine's link can be found on my right side bar. Check her out for some great talent.

So last week I purchased the Bic Mark It markers. I have been discouraged with my supply of Copics and unfortunately my finances have not allowed me to make a large investment in them. At a shoebox swap I attended one of the girls had the Bic markers. I gave them a try and surprisingly was pleased with them. So after doing some research I discovered that you could purchase a box of 36 for around $11-15. Tonight was my first time giving them a go with Lenny Loader. I'm happy with the large range of colors this pack offers. I have 7 different shades of green, 5 different shades of blue, 4 different shades of purple, etc. It's great!! I purchased mine from Staples for about $12. They are definitely worth the small investment. Of course nothing out beats my Copics and Prismas but these are a great substitute.

A Little Sweetness

I received this adorable digi image from Victoria Case Art Stamps several weeks ago and have been dying to use her. I'm now in love with her and can't wait to print her off and use her again. I wish I could remember her sweet name.
Thank you Vicatoria's for the great image!

Angus the Airplane

My husband is a pilot so any time we see something aviation related we are automatically addicted. My friend Julie on SCS had this airplane on her blog. Thanks to her for letting her followers know where to find him.

Thank you Sunshine's Stamps for providing this fabulous Digi Image, Angus. You can find other great talents on her blog.
I'm sure you'll see him flyin' around my blog a lot this weekend as I play around. The first one I did is a military theme. I used my Copics and Prisma markers to color him in. The paper is (I think) from Creative Memories. I then accented with gold star brads and ribbon.
Meet Angus:

My second card for today is from a card kit swap I hosted. I can never get enough of Riley and Sophie.

Our 7th Crafty Critter challenge was to create a 3-D item that SCREAMED summer. I'm not used to creating altered projects so this was a true challenge for me. I was excited to play and I ended up creating a goodie box to give to my secret sister at church. I plan to stuff it with some sweet treats. Hope you enjoy, sorry if it's amature, it's a first for me.
