 I created this card using the "Under the Sea" stamps and die set for my fish and plants.  The birthday hats came from the "Sweet Wishes" stamp set (I fussy cut the hats out).  I created my waves using the "Outdoor Landscape Dies".  I picked out some clear blue sequins from the "Star Power" sequins and glued them to my waves.  I created my sky background using some distress ink and a sky template I created with my Silhouette Cameo.
  
 My 2nd project for the hop is a set of 3x3 mini notecards.  I used the "Sweet Wishes" stamp set for my image and sentiment.  My background paper is from Doodlebug's 6x6 "Sugar Shoppe" paper pad.

CDD Linky Party "Fourth of July/Canada Day"

Time for a new linky party over at Craftin Desert Divas

This time the theme is "Father's Day"



One lucky winner will get a stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas.


One lucky winner will get a $25.00 gift certificate for regular priced files from Too Cute by Jessica.


Here is my project for the linky party -


I created my banner using the CDD "Banner Dies" - I used both sizes of the banner shape along with the stitched oval and stitched star.  I used some pre-cut alphabet letters I had in my stash.  I stamped a sentiment from the CDD "Happy Celebrations" stamp set and added a cut apart from the Doodlebug 6x6 "Patriotic Picnic" paper pad.  I used some of the CDD "Freedom Sequins" to embellish my banner and then strung it up with some crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.

Here are a few closeups as photographing a banner can be a bit tricky :-) -



Here are the products I used (links to each individual product are in the information above) -

   

  

Thanks for stopping by today!!
Don't forget to link up your "July 4/Canada Day" project.  You can link up HERE.



Also, stop by later today as this is Day 1 of the Craftin Desert Divas June Stamp Release and there are some great new sets being showcased this week!!  The stamp release sneak peeks will be done on the design team's  Facebook pages - my Facebook Fan page is HERE.

Happy 4th of July - PPPR dt

Happy Monday and a big thank you for those of you who visited during the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' "Totally Awesome 80's" blog hop this past weekend!!  Today  I am sharing a Fourth of July shaker card I created -


I used the "Star Spangled Card" cutting files from Pretty Paper,Pretty Ribbons to create my card. I did a little bit of tweaking with the file to create the shaker portion of the card - involved some welding, cutting, pasting, ungrouping, etc. . . let's just say it took  me several attempts to actually create what I saw in my mind but I am quite pleased with the outcome.  


Other supplies used -
Doodlebug 6x6 "Patriotic Picnic" paper

I hope I have inspired you to look at some of the PPPR files you own and see if you can create a shaker card too.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Flower Basket - CDD dt

Hi there, today is my turn to share on the Craftin Desert Divas BLOG.   Today I wanted to share with you a cute little flower basket I made to house some goodies for one of my daughter's good friends.


I have had this silhouette file in my library for a little while now and have been looking for an opportunity to make it.  I resized it as large as I could - in fact I had to turn the file at an angle on my virtual mat to get it this big but I wanted to be able to fit a lot of "girlie goodies" inside :-)  Since our gift is a little late I chose to use the belated birthday sentiment from CDD's "Totally Turtle" stamp set.  I stamped my sentiment onto a tag from CDD's "Tag It" svg set and then stamped the coordinating tag frame from the " Tag It" stamp set.


For the finishing touch, I added some sequins from "Butterfly Wishes" and "Pretty Petals".  In the center of my sequins I added a drop of liquid pearls to cover the hole.  My bow was made using some ribbon from 3 Girl JAM.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Today's blog hop theme is the "Totally Awesome 80's" and the design team will be showcasing projects related to the great decade of the 1980's using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' files.   Here is what I created for the hop -


I created a 12x12 scrapbook layout using some photos I had of my youngest daughter's 4th grade play.  The play was "All The World's a Stage" and her classroom was assigned the 1980's.  Perfect for today's blog hop!! To create my layout I used the following PPPR cutting files -

  

  Here are some closeups of a few of the elements on my layout -
