Crazy Camper

About Me:

Deirdre Smith designer and owner of Glittered Roses "creating something handmade" . I have been crafting for what seems like a life time, but about 18 years is about right. I have tried everything from sewing to painting and settling with anything involving paper. I believe in order to be a crafter you have to be willing to try and make things in two's ; one for keep and one for a gift. I am currently residing in Las Vegas with my two beautiful children and enjoy cooking and crafting and occasionally cleaning the house. Motherhood has taught me that preserving memories is a must, so I try to capture most of my experiences with my family through photos and projects. I currently do special order projects, teach Copic along with other craft classes and design for Sherri Baldy's My Besties 3D Images.

Welcome, welcome Deirdre here to start your week with a card showcasing Crazy Camper Occasions  (C1578) a stamp set that is not only useful for camping trips, but versatile enough to use for everyday cards and even layouts   

I colored this image using my Copic Markers (R05; R08, R27; BG32; BG34; BG49; Y19; YG25; T1; T2; T4; T6) I know it seems like so many markers for such a small image...I got
The base of the card is made with designer papers Seaside (X7192B); Yueltide Carol (X7187B)
and last I used some road and sky Washi Tape (source unknown)

I really adore the sentiments that came with this set because they are so very versatile and appropriate for many occasions and projects.
Head on over to I Heart Stamping Heather's shop where you can purchase items I used to make this card.

Until next week continue "creating something handmade" it's so good for the soul

On to the project I created for today..

{image credit}

hat I did was alter a composition book to hold my ideas for my DT Projects and due dates.
Paper is from Heidi Swapp,  Flower & Stick Pins are Pinque Peacock product created by Ms. Jessica..
White Ribbon is CTMH Ribbon
This was a super fun and easy project to create, we always have a ton of Composition books in our house as the school lists always ask for more than what my girls actually use. I will have to share with you later how I alter the inside and back page {i'm still working on ideas} ..

This card was created using the Random Collection by Crate paper, I paired it with this FABULOUS yellow Elegant Floral Pleated  Petal you can find it in the Pinque Peacock Shop HERE.
The Arrows was an extra piece I had left over from when I tried out my art booking cartridge, I used some Tim Holtz Distress paint, matted it on black card stock and then layered the card. I intentionally left the bottom 1/4 (or less) of the card without design I just like how the sentiment looked that way. I cut the sentiment with the cricut explore.

Fast & Furious


   Hi Everyone!  Lyne here from Lynn's Everyday Ideas here with my first project for Paper Crafter Anonymous.

    I chose to do a quick boys card using my scraps to show how something lovely can from your leftovers.

     I also left a specific sentiment off so I can have it in my stash and use it for various occasions.  With the right sentiment inside I could see this for a boys birthday, graduation or even get well.

    I hope you enjoy what I've created, and that I'll see you again next week.  Until then...keep scrapping!

You can check out this FURIOUS stamp set HERE!

Stop by Lyne's Blog and leave her some Bloggy Love!
