Here's what I've created for you today:



I used one of the sweet little turtle images from Totally Turtle and coloured it in. The faces on the turtles are interchangeable. (There are three of them!)  I also stamped the hat image a few times to create my banner, and used some baker's twine to string it along the top of my card.


I used a Fiskars punch for the star border and used some of the negative pieces in the stars on my patterned paper (which is actually from a Christmas pack!). The fun sentiment is from the new Totally Turtle set too! I've always been a sucker for plays on words.  

There is a link to this free SVG pattern somewhere in today's hop lineup.

Today we are showcasing the Totally Turtle stamps.

Here's what I've created for you.....

The NEW Totally Turtle stamp set has images and sentiments. I recently jumped on the alcohol marker bandwagon and decided to try one of the sweet turtle images. (This was done with my first two sets of 6 markers. I've since gone out and purchased another 72 markers. Oh dear!!) The little hearts are from the same set too! (I just used Sharpies as I didn't have any red or pink alcohol markers when I was making this card.) Each stamp set comes with a FREE SVG file to easily cut shapes for the images. No more fussy cutting!



Here's a close up of the fun sentiment. I made this card for my husband. We met 26 years ago last weekend! After all these years, I still "turtley" love him. 

Be sure to join us tomorrow for Day 1 of our blog hop!

Here's today's free pattern:

Mini Easter Cards




It’s time for another Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas. This week, your challenge is to create a project with an Easter theme. As usual, there are two prizes up for grabs: a stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas and a $25US gift card for regularly-priced patterns at Too Cute by Jessica.


For my project, I created a small set of Easter cards using part of the lazy bunny file from Little Scraps of Heaven.



The blue background was cut and embossed with a cloud folder and I added some grass made with a Fiskars punch. The fun frame around my bunny was stamped on pink paper using Craftin Desert Divas’ Picture That stamp set. I love the fun chevrons on this stamp!!

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Have a fabulous week! (And don't forget that the CDD team will be sharing projects for our next release this week - with a two-day blog hop to finish things off!!)

Bone Appétit!


Happy Sunday! It's my day to share a project over at Craftin Desert Divas and I'm sharing it here with you as well.


I found this sweet dog box at the Silhouette Store (#60219). It was so quick and easy to put together - and looks so fun! I get occasional comments from the boys when I'm crafting, but they were all (my husband too) quite impressed with this project. I used a couple of fun stamps from the Craftin Desert DivasFur-ever Friends set. This set has a number of sweet animal-themed sentiments - plus a few co-ordinating images! I couldn't resist adding the happy bone above the "Bone Appétit" sentiment and coloured it in to match the colour scheme of my box. Yes, you read that correctly. I coloured!! I finally decided to give colouring a go. I've got two sets of six markers and will definitely be getting more. I didn't think I'd like it much, but it's actually quite therapeutic - and I like that! Anyway, I'm sure things will get a bit more challenging than a bone!!


The Fur-ever Friends set comes with a FREE set of co-ordinating SVGs. I welded the SVG for the sentiment and bone and also created an offset shadow.

Here's a picture of the Fur-ever Friends sentiments so you can check out all the wonderful stamps that are in the set.



Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous day!

Hugs




It’s time for another Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas. This week, your challenge is to use lots of green on your project. As usual, there are two prizes up for grabs: a stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas and a $25US gift card for regularly-priced patterns at Too Cute by Jessica.


For my project, I created a card using this week’s freebie from Treasure Box Designs. I used the print and cut feature, but cut extra images and then cut out the dress, shoes and hair bows for added dimension. I also embossed the hair bows and dress using my Cuttlebug.


he mat for my card was created using the FREE svg file that is available with Craftin Desert Divas’ Tag It stamp set. I used the internal offset feature of Silhouette software for the inner layer. The “Hugs” sentiment was added using a stamp from the Simply Said stamp set. I finished things off with a few little hearts above the sentiment and some gems on the hair bows.


Don’t forget about the Craftin Desert Divas Animal Theme Week! Be sure to visit the blog and leave a comment each day for your chance to win! 

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Have a fabulous week!

Telephone Card


It's my turn to post over at Craftin Desert Divas and I've created a fun little card to share.


The telephone is a file from Miss Kate Cuttables. In fact, it's one of the first SVG files I ever got but I've only just got around to using it now.


I used a sweet little stamp from the Craftin Desert DivasShort and Sweet Tags set. This set has such a wonderful variety of sentiments for all sorts of occasions. I LOVE the adorable little "Hi" - just right for sneaking into a small spot!





And look! It wobbles!

Thanks so much for visiting today. Have a fabulous day!

Today I have created for you a fun little treat box made with a file from Lettering Delights' Animal Boxes and Bags


After cutting and assembling my box, I used the NEW Fur-ever Friends stamp set to add the fun sentiment. The sweet little smiling heart is a stamp on the same set!! Each CDD stamp set comes with FREE co-ordinating SVGs so I welded the "I ruff you" and "heart" svg images to make my sentiment shape. I also created a shadow using the offset feature.



I made some paper wraps for the little chocolates and stamped them with the happy hearts too.
