Hello again!

Stopping by with my second project of the day...the new Tic Tac Toe Challenge .......

Here is this weeks #TTC141 board .....

I chose the top row over - STITCHING, FELT AND GINGERBREAD.

I bought this super cute PTI - Stitched Gingerbread Mister Die many, many years ago and I finally had the chance to use it with this weeks challenge!!! How stinkin' cute is he??? Papertrey Ink is selling some pretty awesome Felt as well. Everything came together pretty quickly... next I attached Mister Gingerbread to a little Gift Bag and added a Christmas Tag...voila!

Hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration so far? I'm probably already in a food coma ...LOL! Now it's your turn to try this board and we are looking forward to seeing your fun ideas! ~SL~


Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you will spend your day with friends and family? 

Not to mention all the yummy food and football :) ....just in case you have time to craft....come and join us for the newest Inspired By Challenge!

Here is this weeks #IB197 inspiration photo...


I was inspired by the bouquet, and the red, blue yellow colors.

Even though I didn't opt for flowers I pulled out the Winterberry Bouquet Set from The Greetery along with the matching dies. I decided to go for a CAS look...since I was in a time crunch.

If you like, swing by later in the afternoon and check out my second project :) !!!

Wishing you a blessed day with lots of laughter and wonderful memories for years to come! ~SL~

INSPIRED BY - #IB196C Neighbor Tag

Hello and happy Thursday again!

Can't believe we are already more than halfway through November...this month has been a blur for sure! 

Are you guys gearing up for Thanksgiving? What's your favorite dish/dessert to make? Mine is a German Apple Cake...can't wait to make it and eat it :) !!!

Anyways, we are back with a brand new Inspired By Challenge.....

Here is this weeks inspiration photo for the - #IB196C....


     My inspiration came from the houses, trees and the colors.

I decided to dig out an older 2015 PTI - Petite Places: Holiday Lane Set along with the matching dies. The circle background was created by adding watercoloring with the Zig Kuretake Gansai colors. Next I cut out another white circle and trimmed it to create a "little mountain". For the "snow effect" I added some Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. To finish the card off I added some PTI - Classic Kraft DP, the PTI - Pure Poppy Saddle Stich Ribbon and a Button.  

Please make sure to check out all the fabulous ideas the Inspired By Team has created! Looking forward to seeing your ideas! ~SL~

Happy Thursday!

I'm back with the newest Tic Tac Toe Challenge.....

Here is the fun inspiration board - #TTTC139.....

My creation is featuring the last vertical column down - GIFT, NON-TRADITIONAL HOLIDAY COLORS AND PATTERNED PAPER.

I decided to craft a gift box for/with tags. The DP is from the PTI - Hawaiian Shores Collection. The tags are stamped with The Greetery - Speed Tagging Christmas Set along with the matching dies. The tag sentiments are from The Greetery - Tagging Christmas Sentiments Set.  I used the non-traditional holiday colors "Black and Hawaiian Shores". At last I added the twine and the hot pink crimped paper...voila.

Stop by the Challenge Blog and check out all the fabulous ideas the rest of the team had....wishing you a fabulous day! ~SL~

Hello crafty friends!

Hope life is treating you well?  How about joining us for this weeks Inspired By Challenge - #IB194....

Here is this weeks inspiration photo - #IB194C .....

I was inspired by the rustic Christmas wreath and the red/black checker bow.

As soon as I saw the wreath image I knew I wanted to grab the ohhhhhhh so fabulous Rustic Wreath Set and the matching die from The Greetery. Next I added some extra twigs with the Rustic Wreath Twig Dies. To complete the wreath I added the smaller berry and leave images from the Winterberry Bouquet Set also from The Greetery. The banner and sentiment are from the Christmas Time Sentiments Set. What can I say...I just love everything Betsy creates :) !!! At last I added the bow and button along with some red/black checker Washi Tape.

Now it's your turn...looking forward to seeing your ideas. Wishing you a wonderful day! ~SL~
