Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party - Anything Goes

This is the second of two posts today...please click HERE for the My Craft Spot Sneak Peek!!

Happy Monday and happy Labor Day to my friends in the US!! It's time for another Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party at Craftin Desert Divas. Our theme this week is a fun one - anything goes!!


For my card, I used papers from The Paper Studio's Kirby Teesdale Studio paper stack. The edges were inked with a Zutter DIA.


The window was cut with a Spellbinders Standard Circles Large die. A Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle was adhered to clear plastic and inserted in the window. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Leaves were cut in pink vellum with a Memory Box Fresh Foliage die. The butterfly is also from Memory Box and it was covered with Doodlebug Sugar Coating.


Thank you is from CDD's Say It Big stamp set. I taped off the stamp to make it one line instead of two.

You can purchase it HERE.

Merry Christmas

Happy Friday, everyone!! How can this be the last weekend in August?? Sheesh, Christmas will be here before we know it...so I have a Christmas tag to share with you today. It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog HERE and I'm using one of the gorgeous dies from the latest Christmas in July release.


The papers for this tag are from My Mind's Eye Victorian Christmas stack. The edges were distressed and then inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink. The Whispers Delicate Deer die was cut first in cardboard so it would have some dimension, then black cardstock and brown cardstock.


The Merry Christmas Sweet Wordlet was covered with Sparkle N Sprinkle Fire Engine Red glitter. It was also cut in black for a shadow effect. The trees on the bottom are from the Whispers Mountain Village Border. They were covered with SNS Victorian Christmas glitter.

It's going to be super-busy on my blog next week!! I'm so excited to be guest designing for the newest My Craft Spot release and you aren't going to want to miss it!! The new stamps and dies are amazing!!


Each day you will get a sneak peek at one of 5 new stamp sets, plus 4 sets of metal dies!! There will be lots of fun Halloween and Fall projects and ideas to share with you. You won't want to miss it!!
