Hello - All Die Cuts

Wednesday, February 22, 2023
Happy Wednesday! We're in for another doozy of a storm here in Ontario, Canada. Things are supposed to get really bad through the night so I'm relieved that I'll be working from home tomorrow. I'm crossing my fingers and praying hard that things will be clear by Friday as I'm heading to southern Ontario for the weekend to cheer on my youngest in an ice hockey tournament. It looks as though things should be cleared up by then. 

Chrissy is our ever-so-creative hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Die Cuts". With the exception of my card base which I cut with my paper trimmer, all other elements were created from an assortment of dies from an assortment of different crafting companies - My Craft Spot, Reverse Confetti, Flora and Fauna, Gemini. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see the many ways die cuts have been used by the Girlfriends - and then create a paper projects with a die cut or two to join the fun! 

We're a Perfect Pair

It's the wonderful Imke's turn to host our Little Red Wagon challenge this week and she's chosen the theme, "Fruits or Vegetables?" I went with veggies to create my little (4.25 inch) square card. 

I used a NBUS die from MFT to create the sunburst frame around my little pea and carrot pals (from the no-longer-in-business Lil Inker Designs). That was then popped on a coloured mat for a bit of dimension. 

Given the small size of the card and the different die frames used, I opted to include the sentiment on the inside of the card.

Please head to Little Red Wagon to see the rest of the Fruits and Vegetable creations - and then link up one of your own! 

Love You

It's my first time to post on Little Red Wagon in 2023. This year, I'm using Queen's greatest hits as inspiration and, this week, I've chosen my favourite of all their songs (and also ranking right up there as one of my all-time favourite songs in general) - Somebody to Love. As this week's challenge is the final one before Valentine's Day, I thought it was fitting.

I recently viewed a video short from Gerry's Craft Room YouTube Channel and used her card to inspire my own creation. I should have marked the holes first as the top right stitching is a bit misaligned. Fortunately, the grungy look of the card helps it not look too horrible! I hand-cut the heart and basically used a variety of items from my crafting stash that I've had for ages. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created - and then link up your own "Somebody to Love" project! 

Grande Birthday Wishes

Happy February and greetings from a chilly Ontario, Canada! We've had some cold days here and we're heading toward some frigid temperatures this weekend. It's perfect for staying inside while enjoying hot beverages. Speaking of hot beverages, the wonderful Brenda is hosting at Little Red Wagon this week and she's chosen the theme "Feature Warm Drinks". 

I pulled out an oldie but goodie stamp set from Reverse Confetti and paired the stamps with some die cuts and a stencil from MFT stamps. I did get this general card layout idea from Reverse Confetti.

Please grab a warm drink to sip and enjoy while browsing through the Girlfriends' projects at Little Red Wagon - and then create and link up your own hot beverage creation!
