Crafty Sprouts DT Day

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Crafty Sprouts DT day!!!! As we continue with the challenge theme, we have this great photo collage to look at for some inspiration.  You can be inspired by anything whether it's color, texture, shapes.. whatever makes your little heart beat! So here's our inspiring photo:

For me the inspiration was all about red and blue.  I made these little treats for my son's class and made the tag using a Creative Memories tag punch and my Creative Memories Storybook Creator to design the santa.  I punched out all the santas with a 2" circle punch and glued them to the tag.  To put the icing on the cake I stamped it with Crafty Sprouts "Have a Cool Yule" Santa Rocks sentiment!  The kids loved it!!

Don't forget you still have time to enter the challenge by clicking here. Bugaboo is our sponsor for this challenge and there is an awesome prize up for grabs!

Crafty Sprouts Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Welcome to Crafty Sprouts Sale Hop! What a great way to promote an awesome price for awesome stamps!  If you have arrived here from Sandra's blog then you are in the right place and if you just happen to be stop by to say hi, just go straight to the beginning of the hop to Erika's blog for some awesome inspiration.  You don't want to miss any of the design team members' creations!!! 

So now on to my project.  I decided to use the Rock That Baby Bump stamp set in an album form.  I love the cute sentiments in this set and thought what a great way for a Mom to show off her journey from being pregnant until the baby is born!

This is the cover.  I used the cute little footsies, which I always love and stamped it all around.  The cover is actually one of the booklets from the YourStory Photo, which I used to bind all the pages below.  I took pictures of each page before binding so you can have a better look at each page.

When I saw this stamp, I thought it would be so cool to use with a picture of sonogram!

How cute is this page to use for a picture of Mom while pregnant?!?!

Here's another awesome stamp from that set to use with a cute picture showing off Mom's belly!

Now here... we can't forget about Dad you know!

And the day finally arrives!

All the birth details for your bundle of joy!!

Super cute picture of the baby goes here.

What a cute stamp to use to put a picture of Mom and baby!

And of course... this is awesome for a great family picture!

And here it is after it is all in the bind.

How about some blog candy??? I would love to give this project to one winner who has visited all the blogs in the hop, has left a comment is following my blog.  For an extra chance to win, just tell me in a separate comment which is your favorite stamp set from Erika's latest release!

Crafty Sprouts Design Team Day

Good morning to you all and welcome to another Crafty Sprouts Design Team day! For today I made this gift card holder using Crafty Sprouts' Have a Cool Yule set.  I love the font to make the tags and the sentiment is my favorite! I used My Creative Time's embossed gift card holder die, punched out some scalloped circles to use as tags, inked the edges of the cards and tags, added some ribbon and voila! 

Don't forget there's a great sale going on at Crafty Sprouts.  All stamps are $12.50 with free shipping so go check them all out!!  Check out the other Design Team members projects as well for some more inspiration.

KinderStamO Guest Designer

Happy Thursday everybody! I'm so happy to have the opportunity to guest design for Jess and use her awesome KinderStampO stamps.   I made this cute card for my niece who turned three and thought the font from the stamp set and the messages were great to use for this age group. If you haven't checked out her products you can do so by clicking here.

Here's what I used for the card.  
KinderStampO's Vintage Birthday stamp set
Imagine Best Friends
Cotton Candy Divine Twine
Creative Memories paper flowers

The image actually has an action wobble behind it, so my niece had lots of fun playing with it!

Hope you all have a nice day!
