I added some embossing powder to the little spiders to make them super shiny!


(  If you like it, please take a quick trip to youtube once you finish the hop and subscribe!)


On my second card I used tons of spellbinder's dies, some stickles and the Eek-a-Boo 6x6 paper pad to create a cute backdrop for my haunted house on the hill.


These gold stars also come in the sequin pack and work nicely with a small brad in the middle.

Create & Craft TV | Elite DT Announcement!

I have SUCH an amazing announcement for all of you today! 
(AND a completely fabulous prize opportunity! Make sure to read all the way to the bottom for details!)

A few weeks ago I was told by none other than Ms. Jinger Adams, herself that an insanely awesome company from the UK was bringing their SUPER popular 24 hour CRAFT ONLY shopping network to the US.  I am SO excited to announce that I am going to be personally bringing you inspiration, and information from Create & Craft as a member of their Elite Design Team! 

___________

In honor of this announcement, I have broken into a few things that we on the DT have been sent for our first assignment, and have created a little eye candy for you!



On this project I used Create and Craft dies (Essential Rectangles, Deckle Edge Rectangles, Candy Cane Set, and Flora Sprig), Create & Craft Basal Cardstock, and a few sparkly gems.


All the Create and Craft brand dies are engineered so well!  That's why they cut like BUTTER and you can use them to cut, emboss and stencil - like I did on this sweet little bow.


I cut my photos, mats, and most of my embellishments with the C&C TV dies.  I was able to create that nice embossed edge on my photos by printing them on Sticky Note photo paper. Didn't they turn out great?  


As you can see, I laid down three stripes of acrylic paint  and built my layers on top.  The C&C TV Basal cardstock is thick and sturdy and did an awesome job not warping once the paint dried!


_________________-

Obviously I'm not on this DT alone!  So, we have a little hop going on where you can meet all the other sweet ladies and comment to WIN one of 9 amazing prizes (which includes a sampling of C&C TV products similar to the ones I used in the above project! $50 value!)







Britt Bass <<< You Are Here!




SO, what do you have to do to win?  I'll tell you:

1 - Go to the Create & Craft TV website and SIGN UP for emails!
2- Hop along with the DT today and COMMENT on each one to be entered 9 times!
3 - SHARE, SHARE, SHARE! We only get to give away all the wonderful prizes if C&C TV gets to 5000 email subscribers!  So, make sure ALL your friends and followers know about today's hop!

You have from today until October 19th to enter the giveaway and we'll announce the winners on the 28th!

Fall in LOVE with Fall Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Falling in Love with Fall Decor blog hop! If you love fall decorating as much as we do you are in for a treat! 10 different designers came together for their love of fall decor and can't wait to show you their fall decorations!

______________________________

Britt Bass here to bring you a spooky wall hanging I made using ;the Eek-a-Boo collection from DCWV.  (There're lots of goodies from this collection in the prize pack!) 


This skull embellishment is actually from a DCWV wall embellishment home dec package (meant for sticking directly on the wall). I cut those cute little apothecary bottles from a piece of the Eek-a-Boo paper.


This whole project was inspired by the two boot shaped cut-outs that were carrier packaging for two pairs of boot socks I'd purchased last year.  I covered them with paper, created the lace-up detail and added the fabric ruffle.


I added a golden glitter to paper to the nose and eyes of the skull and put a spooky title above the embellishments.


 I love how this turned out.  I know it's an idea that's been done before, but I think the heeled boots and all the glittery accents give it a modern twist.

My Mind's Eye Sketch Challenge - "Remember 18"



Hello there! 

Just dropping by the blog today to post my entry for the August MME sketch challenge!  I was inspired to pull out some paint and the My Mind's Eye "Cut and Paste: Flair" to complete this layout about my girl, Devon, turning 18.

Here's the sketch that the DT gave to work with:


Ronda Palazzari MME august 2014 Sketch

I started out with a piece of black cardstock and painted an anchoring rectangle with gesso.  Then mixed a few coordinating colors of paint with gesso and water to create the paint drips and drops that I scattered over the page.


I let the background dry and then built my layout on top.  I used a combination of die cut words, tags titles strips from the collection, and letter stickers to create the title.  Lastly, I added the arrows, button embellishments, and enamel dots in groups around the page.

Here are some close-ups!


I love the enamel shapes from this collection - they make adding little pops of color so easy!



Thanks for stopping by!  Let me know what you think in the comments!  Have you ever created a background paper like this?  I'd love to hear about it!

DCWV + May Arts Ribbon + Tombow Week!







Hello and welcome to the DCWV/May Arts/Tombow Triple Threat Blog Hop!  All this week, designers from these three great companies are sharing projects they created by teaming up some fun paper from DCWV’s Honey Chic stack, with a variety of adhesives from Tombow and some beautiful ribbon from May Arts.
 
If you have come here from Jennie Garcia then you're on track! If not, you can go back to any of the company websites and start the hop from there!   


I'm SO excited to show you the layout I created for this hop!


Even though this hop is happening during the summer I was really inspired to create this spring layout because I had this adorable photo of my nieces from an Easter Sunday many years ago.

I loved the lush, bright and textural ribbons and trims from May Arts and I was simply IN LOVE with the string of sequin hearts!  I decided that I would cut the hearts apart and then....I started making bows and I COULDN'T STOP!  So, I added little bows to all my little hearts - which is a sentence I lived my whole life to say, lol!

I love to add a strip of fringe-cut paper to my banners and it is SUPER important to have a strong adhesive for this technique - because the fringe needs to be manipulated a bit to get it to take on the same curve as the banners.  I used the Tombow EXTREME!
 

And it IS extremely strong! I loved how easy it went on and there really was a LOT on the roll.  As always with Tombow, the dispenser is refillable and it feels nice in your hand.  Then, I attached the whole, layered banner to the layout with some Power Tabs!
Be sure to visit all the blogs today and leave comments for your chance to win some great prizes!  Three lucky readers will win a Triple Threat prize pack of you own, including a stack from DCWV, a spool of ribbon from May Arts and Xtreme Adhesive, Power Tabs, Removable Adhesive and Fastener Tabs from Tombow. Winners will be chosen from comments throughout the week, so make sure you check back daily to increase your chances of winning! Also, please make sure you have popped on over to Facebook and “liked” each of the company pages (DCWV / May Arts / Tombow), because really, what’s not to like?!
Now, head on over to Amanda Phillips to see what kind of spring craftiness they have in store! 
 

Thursday line-up!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!

Miss Kate Cuttables + Scrappy Mom's Stamps = Awesome Blog Hop!!!

 Helloooooo!! So excited to bring you my project for the Miss Kate + Scrappy Mom's Stamps Blog hop!!


DON'T forget to check the BLOG for today's FREEBIE!!!
__________________________

I just fell in LOVE with this set from Scrappy Mom's Stamps called "Fan-tastic!"
If you are a SUPER nerd like me (or you KNOW a lot of  nerds!) this is the perfect set to add to your collections of sentiments!

(Click for larger image)

There are SO many cute files that can be used with this set.  Superheros, witches, zombies, chemistry sets...these would all work with this set.  BUT, my idea was to use this CUTE "Out of This World" set!


As you know, I strive to keep my projects cute, but to also give them a LITTLE bit of sophistication by using patterns and layout ideas that show the versatility of MKC files.
I'm SOOOO pleased with how this card came out.  I had a DCWV Stack from a year or so ago that featured lots of cosmos, stars, and planetary motifs.  I was FLOORED when I saw how amazing the moon print looked when I cut used it for the moon SVG.  The little alien and the spaceship are cut from some Basic Grey textured solids from various 6x6 pads.  
AND, last, but not least, the stamp was FLAWLESS in quality and didn't even have to be conditioned - it stamped PERFECT the first time!  I used Heidi Swapp ink (which I love, BTW!)

Home Card | Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello! I'm coming to you today with a card I made for my mom to give to a friend who just bought a new house.

BUT, first, I gotta mention today's freebie:

Octopus SVG cut file ocean svg cut file svg cut files free svgs free svg cuts

Isn't he so CUUUUUTTEE!?!?

_________________________________

Well, when my mom told me she needed a card to congratulate her friend I immediately though of this design.  I knew I had a MKC file that was a cute little house and I thought it would pair up so cute with my embossing folder of Birds on a Wire.

Miss Kate Cuttables + Xyron Blog Hop!!!



Hello everyone!! Here today with a super cute project featuring Miss Kate cuttables sister company, Out On A Limb Scrapbooking and our SERIOUSLY generous sponsor - Xyron!

Now, EVERYBODY knows what Xyron does best - they make awesome, innovative, and useful tools to apply all that wonderful STICKY stuff to all your craft projects!  You may NOT know that our sister company - Out On a Limb Scrapbooking is a scrapbooking layout kit company!  They provide pre-cut, pre-designed layouts for you to put together and add your own twist!

_____________________________

When I received my layout kit I was so excited to put it together!  The little characters that Miss Kate creates are so CUTE and the whole kit was so easy to put together using my Xyron X 2.5" sticker maker.

I ran all my leaves and small pieces through the X to apply edge-to-edge adhesive.  I even used it to add my journaling strips:

Even though you could put your layout together exactly like it is originally designed OR you can change it up a little bit!  I used some Action Wobbles to make the heads of the cute little characters interactive - FUN!!



Here is a picture of my finished layout (click for a larger photo!)


_________________________________

Now, seeing that this is sort of a HOP, you need to make sure you visit the Xyron blog and the Miss Kate Cuttables blog to see all the other designers' projects!  ALSO I hear that there is a PRIZE up for grabs...
