Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog: Guest Designer



I am thrilled once again to be a guest designer at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog. I  absolutely love sequins! In fact I love them so much they are a component in each and every collection in our Flavor of the Month card kit over at Scrapping for Less. I partnered with Michelle, from Kennedy Grace Creations to supply all the sequins for our card kits. So, this week I am giving away a package of sequins from KG. 



Today, I have created a cute card using a stamp from a beloved company!  I absolutely adore La La Land Stamps! I am obsessed right now with mermaids and sequins! Sparkly and shiny is all the rage right now! Shaker cards are a huge trend in card making. 


Supplies:

La La Land Mermaid Marci
Papers from my stash
Sentiment stamp: Paper Smooches
Sequins

Until Later,
Teresa

Dream Big with Scrapping for Less and Pink&Main this month!



Hello my lovely crafty friends! I again am so excited to bring you another great stamp company to the website. We have the fabulous company of Pink and Main! I soooo love Michelle...isn't she just adorable? If you didn't check out our "Getting to Know the Brand" blog post last Monday please do so, she is one fantastic lady. So, the Design Team has worked super hard again to bring you great projects for inspiration. We have a selection of items in the store for you of Pink and Main products...many of them the brand new release that just happened! So hop along with us and get inspired as the team shares their projects.


I love hummingbirds and absolutely love watching them out my dining room window so when I saw this stamp set I just had to have it!!!  And, when I purchased it way back in January there weren't matching dies for it...but now there are and I am picking them up today! So if this stamp set is on your radar hold on a bit and the dies will be up on the website to match the stamp!

So for today I created this super cute card! And I used my leftover March card kit papers for my background and my cardbase was leftover from that kit as well! I am loving that I can pull my leftovers from my kits to create other items. Happy hopping!



Supplies Used:
Pink and Main: Hummingbird Stamp
MFT: Scalloped Circles
MFT: Geometric Grid Stencil...this is thanks to Kim's great review!
Distress Inks: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean
Colored with Copics

Use Your Stuff: With a Star Wars Theme!



Hello my crafty friends! I am up today as a guest designer over at the Use your Stuff Challenge Blog! I am so excited to have been asked to be a guest designer this month. I am also sponsoring the Use Your Stuff Challenges for the whole month. I own/operate a website where I sell hot, trendy scrapbook and paper crafting supplies at less than retail cost. Check us out at Scrapping for Less. This week I have a prize of some Nuvo Glitter drops:Midnight Sky...Cause this reminded me of the galaxy sky that I created on my box pop up card that I have to share with you.





Here is my project that I have to share with you today. I created a pop up box birthday card with a space galaxy theme.


Supplies Used:

Prima Watercolor 6x6 Paper Pad
Distress Inks to create a galaxy background on the paper: chipped sapphire, mustard seed, wilted violet, and pine needles
Lawn Fawn: Out of this World Stamp and Die
Copic Markers
MFT Berrylicious Cardstock
Lawn Fawn Scallop Box Pop Up Card Die


A Better view of the galaxy background. This is the top down view.


Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed my box pop up card. I totally enjoyed creating it and using products that tend to sit around until I get ready to use them. 

Until Later,
Teresa

Scrapping for Less Proudly Introduces "My Favorite Things"




Have you ever wanted something so very bad that you could taste it? Well, that is how I was with wanting to carry My Favorite Things products on the Scrapping for Less website. I am so extremely excited to announce that we are focusing on "MFT" products for the month of April! This is a fabulous company and one that is very near and dear to my heart! (In more ways than one! I live in FL and have been to their store). So, join me along with the DT in providing some inspiration for this wonderful company with a wide variety of projects!

One of the various stamp sets of My Favorite Things I absolutely adore is the Pure Innocence stamps...I have lots and lots of these in my personal stash.  However, when planning for this blog hop and purchasing stamps to go on the website, it coincided with the release of this PI set. I absolutely knew that I had to use this set and create cards to send to all my wonderful Design Team members. Now in a perfect world they would have received these before actually seeing them....but well...I don't live in that perfect world so they are going in the mail this weekend. So, hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them...


One card for each special member of my DT!
