Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge #5



Happy St. Patrick's Day and Happy Friday my friends!  Are you wearing green today?  I hope so!  In our family tree we have some Irish.  It's hard to believe March is a little over half over.  But I am so ready for Spring.  Around the Castle it has been beautiful weather.  Mid to upper 60's and tomorrow it's supposed to be 70.

For today's challenge I've put together this box.  A friend of mine asked me to make some of these for her co-workers.  Not sure what to call them.  She was pleased and couldn't wait to hand them out today.  For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  I've sure used this one a lot this month.  The DSP and card stock are from Stampin' Up!©  For the Shamrocks, I used a Martha Stewart punch I've had for years.

So what to do you think?  Are you ready to take the challenge?  I hope so!  I would love to see what you create.  Simply create anything!  A treat holder, box, card, scrapbook page, the sky's the limit!  Once you've created it, head on over to Mary's Blog and enter your project.  You have until Noon EST March 30th.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day and a wonderful weekend!

Cardz TV "Anything Goes" DT Challenge #4



Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV Anything Goes DT Challenge.  These weeks are just flying by!  St. Patrick's Day will be here before we know it!

For those of you who asked for directions for my last challenge found HERE, I will post a picture tutorial on Saturday if you'd like to come back and give it a go.

For this week's challenge I made this little mini coffee cup holder. For the sentiments, I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  Last month when they started putting out the Easter candy, I saw these little gold coins.  I knew this set would be perfect for this. For the shamrocks I used a Martha Stewart punch and some gold foil paper.  I used a 4 oz. mini coffee cup with lid.  I purchased them from Web Restaurant Click here for the Mini Cups and here for the Mini Lids.  If you would like to make one of these holders for yourself, you will need: ⇩

A 2 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock.
Place the 11 inch side at the top of your scoring board and score at:
4 1/2, 7, 7 3/4, 10 1/4.
On the end that has the 1/2 inch flap on the end, punch a 2 inch circle in the center between the two 1/2 inch sections.  Add adhesive to the 1/2 inch flap.  I recommend placing the cup in before pressing the flap to the back.

Are you ready to take the challenge?  Just create anything!  You have until noon EST March 16, 2017 to add your project to Mary's Blog.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!  And don't forget to come back Saturday if you'd like to see how to make my previous project.

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.

Hugs,
Laura
