Welcome to the 
 


Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike. 

Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.
This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 

We took one card created by Theresa from ScrapsByGracie and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.
So let's get hopping.
 You should have arrived here from Theresa Knopf @ www.scrapsbygracie.blogspot.com.

I am soooo excited! This was such a fun hop to be a part of. So here is the card that Theresa created, isn't it pretty. I love the different techniques.
 

Now here is my CASE CARD....
I used Hero Arts Stamp and Die set. That was the easy part, lol.  I didn't have a stencil for the background so I had to be creative. Using Versamark and clear embossing powder, I stamped the bacvkground and using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China, I inked up the card with a blending tool. Other items used, MS Border Punch and Viva Pearl Pen instead of rhinestones.
I can't want to see what Anna comes up with!

Don't forget to follow and comment on each of the blogs to be entered into the prize drawing.  Theresa is giving away a great goodie box filled with card making supplies.  Winner will be posted on Theresa's blog on Wednesday and the winner will have 7 days to claim their prize. 

Your next stop is Anna
Here is the full line up in case you get lost along the way:
Sandy Bell Hentzel www.scrapbookblessingsclub.com
Jessica Douglas Wilson www.stampinandcraftin.blogspot.com

HomeMade Saturday - Raggedy Ann 25"

0
Hi all, I am here to share with you a sewing project I've been working on for a month to six weeks.  About two years or slightly more my niece asked me if I would make another Raggedy Ann doll for her oldest daughter, Julisa as she applied make-up to her 15" doll and didn't like the doll....

So I decided to make a 25" doll for replacement and here is pics of the doll....

 
Doll w/out her hair

 

Finished project.  

and the tag:


Ragdolls by Scrappy Dew.com .  Printed and cut using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio DE software.  Actually, I loaded file into my Make the Cut software, put all the pieces together to form the Raggedy and saved as a png file so I could print and cut (or if I prefer, print than cut on the Cricut Explore.)

Using Inkscape and Studio DE I created a little tag as a card, so my sister and I could sign the inside.  I know there will be a happy 10 year receiving this doll by the end of this week.  And I will be cutting and sewing together another 25" Raggedy Ann doll for her 3 yr old sister.  

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Spring Moments Layout

For today's layout I have what I call Spring Moments which is the title I have given to Cheryl Scrapinmini's April's Choo-Choo Train Kit which you can find on Facebook


Supplies used:
  1. 12x12 mats from Stampin! Up collection as well as the grass and the top mats of the ovals (eggs)
  2. Journal cards and Spring Moments sentiment (Journal Card) from Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking
  3. Elements for kit from Creative Kuts
Bunnies and Girl I retweaked so I can print than cut on my Cricut Explore Design Space.  The flowers also print than cut and from one of my many scrapbook clipart sources.  The grass was for another project that didn't just quite fit, so I trimmed and placed over the bunny.

Hello scrappy and crafty friends. Barbara here with a layout for Friday
.
My tip for today is to use tiny brads to attach vellum if there is not part of the vellum that will be hidden so you can use adhesive.

Here is the photo of the finished project:


I used the I AM line for this layout but any papers will do fine.
You will need

1-12x12 solid piece of cardstock
a doily cut in half
background colored heart paper cut to 10x10
a contrasting color patterned paper cut to 4x6
two photo mats 4.25x6.25
piece of printed vellum cut to 10x2
2 tiny coordinating brads
various embellishments


Center the heart pp on the solid cardstock.
place the darker 4x6 pp at an angle in the top left corner
approximate placement of photo mats so vellum will fit between them
attach top photo mat
attach vellum with brads
attach bottom photo mat
add the half doily as shown
add embellishments as desired.

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments.
