Pets @ MMM

Good morning y’all 
Make My Monday is back with a new challenge for you – this week we’d love to see your „PET“ creations 🙂  
that’s right .. scrap a photo from your lovelies or unpack your stamps or designer paper featuring cute dogies, cats, or whatever you like 🙂

Also, check out the design teams creations – they are awesome!

I used a rather old stamp by Paper Smooches – I’ve had that one FOREVER but still love those cute and chubby animals:)  .. I also tried something new – for me, a watercolor background .. didn’t quite turn out as great as I hoped but I’ll keep trying J

Happy Monday 



happy birthday Jona :)

Jona is turning 5 today – unbelievable 😀 I had the pleasure to watch him grow over the past couple of years and he is an amazing little boy 
therefore, here’s my birthday card for him – with a cool, personalized background 🙂 — because that’s what we’d like to see over at Creative Friday — handmade patterned paper 🙂
hop over and check out the DT’s work 🙂
I made my paper with my Cameo and some sketch pens :))

polka dot smooches :))

I love polka dots .. on paper, on ribbon, on fabric .. I love to wear polka dots — I think they make me smile and therefore bring happiness 🙂

Making cards for guys is hard — my opinion .. usually it shouldn’t bling too much, the images shouldn’t be too cutie cute .. stuff like that .. but .. I think kraft cs and buttons always work well for men .. and why not polka dots as well :)))

so here is my sewed polka dot smooches card 🙂 — used „male“ colors of course and no bling .. but I hope you can see that the little blue button is shiny 😀

washi monster :)

I love washi. 

My lovely friend Manu made a card like this a while ago and I really liked it, therefore, I made one on my own — plus the cutle little Papersmooches monster  just love this little dude .. as you can see, I did use stickles as well, but only very little .. some boys just don’t like glitter as much as I do .. but I think holy is just a perfect color 🙂

Challenges:
Addicted to CAS: masculine
All that Stickles: green stickles — holy on the monster

MoxiFabWorld: Washi

new stamps

today my new PaperSmooches Stamps arrived from Mia’s Stempelkueche 🙂 .. oh how I love those kitties and dinosaurs :)))

.. I instantly started crafting and tried something new — participating in the 7 or less challenge where you are supposed to create a card with 7 or less supplies and at the same time trying to finish this card in less than 10 minutes .. well later on I figured that paper piecing is probably not something I should plan on doing while participating in the 10 Minute Craft Dash .. but it doesn’t matter 😉 .. sooo a lot of pressure – time and supply wise 🙂 but I kinda did it .. I created the kitty card in 9minutes and 26seconds 🙂 — and realized later that I used 8 supplies -.- oh well ..
Challenges:
10 Minute Craft Dash: 9minutes and 26 seconds
KIS: Paper Piecing
but for the dinosaurs card I used these supplies – 7 +yay+
I used these supplies:
– white cardstock
– Cuteasaurus, PaperSmooches stamps
– MME Fine and Dandy Boy paper pad 
– bakers twine
– staz on ink pad
– rhine stones
– corner rounder punch
sentiment stamp from Mia’s Stempelkueche 

edit: Legojenta: 7 or less — too bad I just 8 supplies instead of 7 -.- oh well 😉
KIS: Paper Piecing

Wackeldackel :)

Long time – no post .. oh well 🙂
Noah is turning 2 !! .. how time flies .. he was just born .. oh my 🙂 and this is my birthday card for him 🙂 using Paper Smooches Sparks cool shades color combo, The Paper Players Sketch and I embossed the light blue paper, which is something the girls over at  Keep It Simple want to see 🙂
All of these three challenges thrown together make a colorful, simple card with googly eyes 🙂
Hope y’all like it 🙂

     

cownese ..

Howdy there 🙂
ha .. guess what .. „last year“ I thought to myself: next year, you’ll stop procrastinating and start writing your papers!!! .. LOL .. yeah right .. I think my school stuff is still in my car, haven’t touched it since Dec 20th .. but what I did touch are my craft supplies 😀 ..
Today, I used (for the very first time) this really cool woodgrain stamp by Papersmooches as well as the little chubby cow .. Oh how I adore those cuties 
I used (again) some MME papers .. I just love them .. can’t remember if I have used something else for my past 10 projects? .. hmm .. oh well 🙂
Even though I have owned mu Silhouette Cameo for over a year now, I have not used the print‘ n ‚cut tool yet – until today, as you can see with the sentiments – it works great 😀 .. 
btw .. this kuhl (cool) idea is not my own .. I’ve seen this cute card — by Kalyn Kepner and just looooved it 🙂

hope y’all have a fabulous start into 2o13 .. may your year be full of fun adventures 

Challenges:
I’m so glad the gals over at KIS want to see wood in the current challenge, otherwise I might have not used my timber stamp ever? who knows 😀 .. 
Hop over to the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge blog ‚cos anything goes 🙂

heja crafty peeps,
it’s time for a new challenge over at CUYL   we’d like to thank you all for your wonderful creations – it was a real pleasure looking through all you fantastic artwork 🙂

For the next two weeks we would like to encourage you to create some kind of „candy wrap“ – whether it’s a cute box, bag or basket – it does not matter but please make sure to put some kind of candy in it so we can recognize it as „our theme“ 🙂
You’ve time until October 12th midnight to link you projects 🙂

The lucky winner will receive a yummi goody sponsored by Betty’s Creations :)))


I made this lil box using my cameo and I also put together this clean and simple card by using this cute Paper Smooches stamp ❤
