Jaded Blossom Guest Designer

I'm so excited to be able to participate in the Jaded Blossom Birthday Celebration and being a guest designer!!! Jaded Blossom is one of my favorite stamp companies, not to mention that Candace and Michelle are great crafting friends as well and a lot of fun to learn from.  For my project I created an advent calendar.  I've never done one and decided to do one with different activities for my kids and I to do through out the Christmas season.  WARNING!!! A LITTLE PICTURE HEAVY BELOW! :)

here's a full view
Each pocket has one of activity for the day.  Out of the 24 activities, 
6 of them are RACKs (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness). Every night we pick out the next day activities and if it's a RACK tag, we come up with something to do to make a difference.

Here is a closer view of the different sections of the calendar:

I used Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes, Christmas Candy
and Alphabet Candy to make the banner heading and to add the cute little
Christmas designs around the calendar.

I used the Lovebug Creations rumple ribbon Christmas Joy collection 
(Christmas Present) to divide the sections and hang them together.

samples of tags

 The tags I made using the print and cut feature on my cameo along with Pretty Paper Graphics Christmas Brights Chevron and Strips and Christmas Brights Circles and Spots digital paper.    

On the middle section of the calendar, I attached this cute little bag so 
that everyday the tags can get placed in there.

Super Heroes Invite

Good morning everyone! I'm so glad to be getting back into a little more of a crafting mode! I've been missing out on a lot, but now with Christmas just around the corner I know that I will be super busy!

Today I'm guest designing for Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons!! I had been asked by a friend to create and  invitation for her son's birthday party which was super hero themed.  The first thing I thought about was the Super Hero files from Pretty Paper Graphics.

Rainbow Stars digital paper
Super Hero Trio digital clip art
Super Hero badges

It's a little different creating with digital clip art than cut files.  It makes for a quick and cute way to make a party.  I absolutely love the bold colors! 

Lisa is such a sweetheart and has great collection of files.  Be sure to check out her store!

Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon meets 3 Girl JAM

Good morning everybody! I wanted to quickly share some cards I made for hubby's birthday this past week.  These were simple, cute and he loved them! 

I made this one using a few of my favorite companies, 3 Girl JAM for the dotted canvas border strip, the Birthday Panda clip art set from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon, and Jade Blossom's Make a Wish set for the sentiment.  

This is the card that the kids gave to him.  For this card I used white crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl JAM and the Super Heros Collection digital clip art from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon.  The sentiment I cut from the silhouette store.

I used my cameo to cut the clip art, which I love to do when I have to whip up a quick card.  Both of these cards took me less than 2 hours! 

Both of these companies are having a great sale this weekend!  

3 Girl Jam Now through Mon 9/3/12 we have all products in our store 30% off.
Use coupon code MONSTER30

Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons is have a 20% off with a $10 purchase.
