Happy Birthday Rosie!!! We are celebrating Rosie's birthday with a rockin' blog hop!! If you have arrived here from Kari's blog then you are in the right place.  If you have just dropped by to say hi, you should head on over to the birthday girl's, Rosie's blog, to see what she has in store to kick off the blog hop!

Here's the lineup in case you get lost:

Rosie's all about Rock n Roll so I made her this cute little piano card with my new Silhoutte Cameo. 

I added a little pink to it and a cute tag using My Creative Time's die.  The sentiments are from Crafty Sprouts' Are You Ready to Rock stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by! Now on to the talented Trell!  I hope you all have a beautiful Friday and weekend!

Crafty Sprouts: Case Our DT!

 Welcome everyone to another Crafty Sprouts' Challenge! This week's challenge will be super fun because what is required is to case another Crafty Sprouts Design Team member!  What this means is look for a card that one of the DT members has created and copy the style/layout or be inspired by colors, image, style, etc. I chose to case Elsa and here's the card she made:

You can see it and get more information on it by clicking here

I cased her card to be the same shape and use an Meljen's image as she did.  Those images are just adorable and honestly I would have never found them if it wasn't for her!   I also like her, used my cameo to cut the image. It does make it so much easier to work with digis (thanks for the tip Elsa!)

Here is the inside of the card.  I used a sentiment from the Smile On set. 

So don't forget to visit the rest of the design team members to see who you will case for this challenge.  They all have done a wonderful job with their projects and I know it will be hard to pick!  There is an awesome prize up for grabs and you don't want to miss out on it!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful day and a great weekend!

Friends' Valentines Day Card and Winner of Recap Hop

Hi everyone! here again with a cute card made with Crafty Sprouts and Peachy Keen Stamps! I used the PKS stamp of the month set and I'm so glad that I got them! These images are perfect for any sweet card and not just valentines day and go perfectly with Crafty Sprouts' Besties for life set.  I colored the image with my Promarkers (which I haven't used in a while but was so happy to bring them back out!) and punched some hearts out of glittery red paper.  I also used my Cameo to cut out the heart shape card.  The paper is from BoBunny, which is an awesome paper for valentine's day.  The inside of the card is the same pattern as the paper the sentiment is stamped on.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Fanpire Bookmarks

Hi there! I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday!  I wanted to share these cute bookmarks I made for my daughters who just love the Twilight series.  I found the big paper clips at Staples and thought they were big enough to add something on top and use for a bookmark.  Crafty Sprout's Fanpire set has some great stamps to create bookmarks for the little Fanpire in your life!  I also used My Creative Time's Scalloped and Stitched circle die set.



Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a beautiful day!

Crafty Sprouts Recap

Good morning my beautiful friends! Welcome to another Recap Event day for Crafty Sprouts!  I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and New Years with their loved ones.  I know it's been a  while since I've posted anything.  The holiday season was definitely a busy one in the Pradel household.  I was happy to have spent time with my family celebrating my favorite season of the year, but I'm also glad to be back to creativity! :) 

Today I am featuring the Smile On stamp set.  One thing that I love about this set is that you can make so many happy things with it, whether it's a layout, card or as I've done here an altered frame.  

I used some patterned cardstock, glued it and glossed with with mod podge to a plain frame and embellished.  Easy peasy!!!  The stamp set is great to use with pictures and I thought they would make great Christmas gifts.  These were gifts that I made for my best friend and my mother in law.  They both loved them!  Please forgive me for the bad pictures... I had issues with lighting on this day.  

Here is the Smile On stamp set:

So go check out the Crafty Sprouts Shop and see the awesome stamps we've been using for the Recap Event.  Great projects are awaiting!!

Hope you all have a great day!!
