Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge



We're baaaaack!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV Anything Goes Design Team Challenge!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and 2017 has started out great for you all!  It just seems like yesterday we were playing with Christmas papers.  Now it's time to focus on Valentine's Day.  Lots of reds and pinks.

I'm not even sure what to call this box.  A friend of mine had found the dimensions for this box on Pinterest.  She asked me to help her because the dimensions for the boxes didn't quite work, so I made an adjustment.  So here is my version.  The sentiment on the front "You make life so SWEET!" is from the Cardz TV Stamps  set "Sugar Rush."  This set has so many yummy sentiments that are perfect for cards and treat holders.  The "Happy Valentine's Day" sentiment is from the "Be My Valentine" set.  The papers are from Stampin' Up!, and I used framelits and punches from Stampin' Up!.  And let's not forget about the yummy treats inside!

Ready to take the challenge?  Just create ANYTHING.  Don't forget to add your project to Mary's blog.  You have until noon Thursday, February 2, 2017.  She's giving away a set of her fabulous stamps sets.   I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge



Hello my crafty friends!  Tis the Friday before Christmas!  Can you believe it????  I must ask, where has time gone?  I absolutely cannot believe Christmas is Sunday.  Before we know it, it will be Valentine's Day!

Growing up it was fun to leave out the milk and cookies for Santa.  The first thing I checked Christmas morning was the plate and glass where the milk was to make sure Santa ate all of the cookies and drank all of the milk.  I was so excited to see it was all gone.  Lol.  I made this little box for a friend for her daughter to leave out for Santa.  The "Cookies For Santa" sentiment came from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Christmas Joy."  This set is full of great sentiments perfect for Christmas.

So what do you think?  Are you ready to join our challenge?  All you need to do is create anything. You have until noon EST Thursday January 5, 2017.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!  From the Castle to your house, I wish you a blessed Christmas surrounded by your loved ones.

Hand Sanitizer Recipe


Hello my crafty friends!   If you are looking for my Anything Goes Challenge CLICK HERE.   I have received some requests for the directions to my Christmas hand sanitizers.   To view that post CLICK HERE   Below is the original picture and a picture tutorial.








The piece of cardstock should be cut at 3 3/4 x 4 3/4.  You will need a piece of  DSP for the back panel that measures 1 1/2 x 2 1/2.  For the small front flap, you will need a piece of DSP that measures 3/4 x 1 1/2.

I hope this make sense.  They go together really fast and are really cute!  I hope you have a great weekend!

Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge


Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV Challenge.  Can you believe were already in the second week of December????  I've been so busy making treat holders for family and friends.  And here is one of them.

I'm having so much fun making all of these different treat holders.  This one holds a Hostess Christmas cupcake.  The box measures 3 x 3.  For the sentiments, I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Sugar Rush" and "Gingerbread Christmas."  I love Gingerbread Christmas!   Fun sayings!   I used Stampin' Up papers and punches.

The box was made by using a 9 x 9 piece of cardstock scored at 3 inches on all 4 sides.  Fold  all of the scorelines.  Remove each of the 4 corners.  The DSP was cut at 2 3/4 x 2 3/4.   For mine I used two different patterns for the box and another for the lid.  For the lid I used a 5 1/8 x 5 1/8 piece of cardstock.  Notch two corner panels on one side, and repeat on the opposite side.  Add adhesive to the flaps.  You will need one piece that measures 2 7/8 x 2 7/8 for the lid, for the small panels of the lid you will need four pieces that measure 3/4 x 2 7/8.  I hope this makes sense.

Now it's your turn!  Just create anything!  Easy peasy!  You have until noon EST December 22, 2016.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!   I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Anything Goes Cardz TV DT Challenge


Happy Friday my friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We here at the castle had a fabulous Thanksgiving.  I'm still full!  I'll have to have a slice of peanut butter pie tomorrow.  Lol.


It's time for another Anything Goes Cardz TV DT challenge!  Christmas is quickly approaching!  Time flies!  I've been so busy making Christmas treat holders.  Gotta start early so I can get cards made, right?  For my treat holder I had to use the Cardz TV "Snow Buddies" set because they are just so cute!  And of course I had to give him a Santa hat! For the sentiment I used the "Home for Christmas" stamp set.  Sooo many fun sentiments!  The papers are from Stampin' Up! as well as the stamps for the Santa hat and punch.  As for the box, I made this by hand not machine.  At the time of this posting, I forgot to take some pictures for dimensions.  I will try to have them by Monday with this being Thanksgiving weekend.  So please be patient.

So what do you think?  Want to get in on the fun?  I sure hope so.  It's super simple.  Just create ANYTHING!  Add it to Mary's Blog before noon EST December 8th.  I can't wait to see what you create!  Also, don't forget to stop by the blogs of my DT sisters for more inspiration!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you!  Have a fabulous weekend!

Anything Goes Cardz TV DT Challenge


Hello my crafty friends!  It's time for another Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge!  It's crazy how time is just flying by.  Turkey day will be here before we know it!  I mentioned on the last challenge that I will be participating in an Art Festival and this is another one of the projects.  Here around the Castle it has been unseasonably warm but we've enjoyed a few cups of hot chocolate at nightanyway.  Lol.


For my project I used the Cardz TV Stamps "Gingerbread Christmas" set.  I just love this set!  The font is perfect!  I know I will be using this set a lot.  I've used papers a set called Candy Cane Lane, and the Stitched Framelits from Stampin' Up!.  This summer I had made some post it note holders and decided to see if a package of  hot chocolate would fit inside.  Voila!

Now it's your turn!  Create ANY project and add it to Mary's blog.  Easy peasy!  You have until noon EST November 24th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets.  I hope you visit my DT sisters blogs for more awesome inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!
