Wild Flower Wednesday!!

Happy Wild Flower Wednesday!!  Hope your first few days of Spring have been magnificent!!  Today it is time for another challenge over on the Wildflower Patch.  The challenge is to create your own flowers and use some ribbon on a project.  I decided to create a little gift box out of a recycled round container.

I just love this little fairy, she can be used to grant so many wishes...
I am going to be using this little box for a small gift for a birthday.  Hope she loves the gift as well as the box.

And here is a close up of my handmade flower.  I used some ribbon to create the base of this flower.  Very Fun and easy to do.
And more ribbon along the edges of the box.  This was the perfect size to wrap around my container and helped to strengthen the edges too.  

I hope you can join us in this weeks fun challenge.  See ya there at The Wild Flower Patch!

Happy days!, JennK

Tuesday Trigger time

Hello crafters!  Today the sun is shining and it is feeling much more like the first days of Spring.

Today I wanted to share a new to me challenge called Tuesday Triggers over on Moxi Fab!  These little triggers are so inspiring and I am glad I had a chance to play along.

The idea is to use a picture as a trigger for a theme for your project....the trigger for this challenge is...
Isn't this chair so fabulous anyway!!?  Who wouldn't be inspired?

Here is a card that it inspired me to create.

I used a new stamp set from Unity.  It is the KOM for March...isn't it yummy too?  The kraft paper is actually a bag I recycled.  I love the weight of the paper and this decorative edge is a nice bonus! 

I can't wait to see this weeks Tuesday trigger.  Stay tuned for The TPE Monday challenge!

Hugs, JennK

Just in time...

I think I just made the deadline for the Bo Bunny challenge this week.  You had to pull out some of your Bo Bunny goodness and use green, cream or white and aqua in a layout.  I decided to pull out some of the Flutter butter collection I had left.  Oh how I LOVE that line!

Here is a close up of some of the embellies I used.  

This picture is a little dark sorry.  We have gotten another blast from Winter trying to make a return today!  Ugg!!  I wish Spring would come and stay awhile...

So I took these pictures a little while back, and have been waiting to scrap them.  I just LOVE how the layout came together.  I gotta tell ya, it has been so long since I have scrap booked that it took me a bit to get this page to flow how I wanted.  I am glad I kept at it...because now I couldn't be happier with the results.  I could be happier about the picture quality though....LOL!!

I also finished up a card inspired by the Die cuts R us challenge this week.  The challenge there is to use the new My Minds Eye papers as your inspiration for color.  Here is what I came up with,

I just love this little kitty by Mo Manning!  So sweet and mischievous...

Alright enough gabbing by me...I gotta get back to scrappin'!!  Ya know I created a page now I have the "fever" again!!  What a Yummy "Fever" to have though.

Till Next time, Happy Craftin'!, JennK

Wildflower Wednesday is HERE!!

Hi!  Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday!  The challenge this week on The Wild Flower Patch is all about Spring and Spring cleaning!!  I challenge you to use up some of your existing stash to create a wonderful project all about Spring!  Whatever that means to you, whether it be gardening, or flowers, maybe rain or the dreaded cleaning...HA!!  Sift through your supplies and use up some of your stash to make room for the new stuff you know you just HAVE to HAVE!!  *giggles*

Alright now I used up some designer paper scraps as well as some cardstock that I have in my scraps stash to make this card.

Next I created a few Bookmarks (thanks Pinky for the inspiration!) for my sons class to enjoy.

These were all made with paper scraps from my stash.  I love using up some scraps, especially when it makes room for the new goodies coming in Spring.  I know you have some scraps that you could use up for this challenge too.  Hop on over and take a look and play along!  we would love to see your creation.

Hello Tuesday...

I am back today with a project that I recently finished up as a gift for my mom.  She was looking for a book to house her cross stitch patterns she would like to make herself.  So this is what I came up with....

This is the front cover and below is the inside of the front cover.

Next is a pocket I created for the first page.  I thought it would be nice to have a place for her floss and scissors.  Or any other little thing she needed while working on a project. The inside pages are lined on one side and graph paper on the other.  

And lastly the inside of the back page.....

I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.  

Supplies I used to create this project.
Left over chipboard from paper packaging
Sweet Pea Stamp
Paper Makeup stamps (bee and sentiment)
Unity stamp (sentiment on inside front cover)
Copic markers
Momento ink
K&Co patterned paper
DCWV solid cardstock
Bind it all wires and machine
Mod Podge
Sewing machine stitching
Flowers and rhinestones from stash

I will be back tomorrow with the latest Wild Flower Wednesday sure to stop by.
Happy Craftin'!, JennK

Hello all!  So sorry I am posting so late today.  It has definitely been a Monday for me.  My little one is still not feeling well and so off we went to the doctor again.  He came home with a new antibiotic and a diagnosis of Walking Pneumonia.  So he will be resting the rest of the day today and the next till the antibiotics kick in.

Now on to the challenge over on The Pink Elephant.  This week is all about invitations.  Whether it be to a birthday party or a barbecue we want to see it...

I went with a birthday theme for mine.  The stamps I used are from a set of Stampin' Up.  Embossing is a birthday folder from sizzix.  The rest is some scraps I dug up in my craft room.  So much fun and so quick and easy.

Have fun with this challenge, I look forward to seeing all the different ideas everyone comes up with,

Hugs, JennK
