3D CTVS DT Challenge #3 "All In Our Places"



Hello my crafty friends!  It's Halloween (Happy Halloween!), and it's Friday so it's time for another CTVS 3D DT challenge!  I can't believe how time flies!  Can you believe two months from today it will be New Year's Eve?  Whoa!  Anyway, our challenge is to make place cards for Thanksgiving.
       
For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set.  This is a great set for Thanksgiving.  It has fun fonts and sayings for Fall and Thanksgiving.  For the boxes, I used the Curvy Keepsake Box framelit from Stampin' Up!, the feathers and leaves are framelits as well.  For the tags I used the Note Tag Punch.  I love how they turned out.

Now it's your turn!  Just create a place holder for your Thanksgiving table.  Once you're done, head on over to Mary's blog and enter your creation.  You have until noon EST Thursday, November 13th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome stamp sets to the winner.  I hope you take the challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!  Don't have too much candy tonight and have an awesome weekend my friends!

Lots of Hugs,

I've Got My Eyes On You



Hello my crafty friends!  I hope your weekend is going well.  If you are looking for my Cardz TV
3-D "Fun Fold" challenge CLICK HERE.  I wanted to share a little treat holder I made last week.

 I just have to tell you, I love Mary's Cardz TV Stamps!  She has some of the best sentiments.  As soon as I received the new "Frankly Frightful" Halloween set I knew what I wanted to do.  I also used the "Trick or Treat" set for the "Happy Halloween"

The papers are from Doodlebug, and the eyeballs are chocolate with peanut butter inside.  Every year my mom has me make treat holders for the people at her bank.  So I've been making different ones I hope to share with you soon.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you!  Enjoy your weekend!

Lots of Hugs,

"Fun Fold" Cardz TV 3-D Challenge #2



It's Friday, and time for another Cardz TV 3-D Challenge!  Our challenge was to make a 3-D card for Halloween.  I love to make Tri-Shutter cards. This one is a little different because it has a bigger panel to write on.                
  
For the "Flying by with a WITCHY hi!" I used the "Oct. 31st" Cardz TV Stamps set.  For the "BOOtiful!" and "YIKES" I used the "More Spooky Sayings" set. The "No tricks, Just Treats!" and "Happy OWL-oween!" came from the "Frankly Frightful" set.  These are all AWESOME sets for Halloween!  The papers, witch, cat, spider, owl, pumpkin, and little Franky are from Doodlebug.  The ghost was cut using the Fun Fall framelit set from Stampin' Up!

Now it's your turn!  Just create a 3-D card for Halloween (Box card, Easel, Stair Step, Side Step or Tri-Shutter etc)  You have until noon EST Thursday October 30th to enter.  Mary will be giving the winner a set of her awesome stamps.  I hope you stop by the blogs of my wonderful DT sisters.  You won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would REALLY love to hear from you!  I hope you have a wonderful crafty weekend!

"Sweets for the Sweet" Cardz TV 3-D Challenge





Happy Friday my crafty friends!  "Welcome to the "Sweets for the Sweet" Cardz TV 3-D Challenge!  I'm so excited to start up our Challenges again!  Our wonderful Mary gave our DT a challenge to make a candy wrapper or candy holder for Halloween treats.  All my friends know how much I LOVE to make treat holders.

The sentiment on the fry box came from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Trick or Treat."  For the fry box, I used the Stampin' Up! fry box die.  The sentiment on the hamburger box came from the "More Spooky Sayings" stamp set.  I used the hamburger die from Stampin' Up! for the box.  The sentiment on the milk carton came from the "October 31st" set.  For the milk carton, I had found this TUTORIAL.  I had to change the lid a little bit longer to fit the box with the soda can inside.  I changed the measurements to 3 1/2 x 10 1/2.  The score marks along the 10 1/2 side are the same,
2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2, and 10.  The scorelines along the 3 1/2 side are the ones I changed.  They are 3,
4 1/4.  The papers are from Doodlebug.  The little mini clothespins are from Recollections.  The spider is from my local grocery store.
     

Now it's your turn to take the challenge!  Just make a candy wrapper or a candy holder for Halloween treats.  Easy peasy!  Just head on over to Mary's Blog and add your project.  You have until noon EST Thursday October 16th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her amazing stamps to the winner.

In case you've been wondering where I have been, life has been upended recently.  My dad has cancer that has gotten much much worse.  So needless to say life has been hectic.  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you take the challenge.  Don't forget to stop by the other ladies' blogs on the DT for more inspiration, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Lots of Hugs,

Have your CAKE and eat it too!


Hello my crafty friends!  I hope you are having a good Labor Day.  In August and September we have a lot of Birthdays.  I need to get on the ball and make cards for the September birthdays.  So I wanted to share a birthday card I made using a Sizzix Circle Card Flip Die.  These are really fun and super easy to assemble.  The patterned papers I used are from Doodlebug.  The "Have your CAKE and eat it too!" sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Good Times."  I used an old balloon punch that I've had for a very long time on the inside.  Like I said, super quick and super easy.

I'm so glad you stopped by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,

Happy Blooming Birthday



Hello my crafty friends!  I know it's been a while since I've posted.  You know how summer takes over and you get to do non-crafty things.  Anyway, I just wanted to quickly post a birthday card I made recently.  It's called a Dutch Fold card.  I've made them before and saw someone's and decided to make another one.  Here's an old TUTORIAL from Splitcoast Stampers if you would like to make one.  The flowers are from the Flower Patch Stampin' Up! stamp set as well as the Happy Blooming Birthday.  I used the Flower Fair Framelits to cut them out.  The inside stamp is from the Amazing Birthday stamp set from Stampin' Up!

We have lots of back to school shopping to get done.  My daughter has had a growth spurt.  School starts in two weeks.  I can't believe it.  I hope to be posting more when school starts up again.  Lol  Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,

Happy 4th of July





Happy 4th of July my crafty friends!  I just love the 4th of July.  I love celebrating America's Independence Day, and as a Navy Veteran, I am very thankful to those who have served our country, and especially thankful to those that are currently serving.

My mom had recently asked me to make some treat holders for her co-workers for the holiday.  You know me, I LOVE to make treat holders.  I made about 15 of these.  We went to Zurcher's to buy the colored sixlets.  Yum!  I used the Cardz TV Stamps "Happy Days".  For the "celebrate," I used one of the stamps that was in Stampin' Up's July Paper Pumpkin Kit.  The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug paper pad called Patriotic Parade.  I just love Doodlebug, especially since the company is right here in Utah.  It's so awesome how many companies are here in Utah like Stampin' Up DCWV, WRMK, American Crafts, Provo Craft, SEI, and Close to My Heart.  So awesome!

Well my friends, I hope you have a safe and wonderful July 4th!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I really hope to hear from you.

Lots of Hugs,
Laura
