Having Fun... - Child's Play Challenges

Hot Wheels is the inspiration toy for the second challenge at Child's Play Challenges. When my brother and I were little you hardly ever saw a hot wheel car in our home, the only time you did was if it came in a happy meal. However, this challenge was an easy one for me because we did have pinewood derby car. I love those races at church. My brother got trophies and I got participating ribbons. 

Supplies: cardstock (American Crafts and The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Crate Paper), chipboard (Crate Paper and Um Wow Stdio)), twine (Timeless Twine), journaling card (Project Life) brads (My Mind's Eye and Basic Grey), Stickers (Heidi Swapp, American Crafts and Studio Calico), mist (Tattered Angels), inl (Stampabilities), stamps (Paper Bakery), washi tape (Scotch), pen (Project Life) and diy enamel dots.

I like mixing different fonts for titles. It adds so much more interest . 
 That little orange brad is from a My Min's Eye Halloween collection.
 I love doing hidden journaling. Adding stamps and an arrow just to show that there is hidden journaling. I am one who would forget.
 Here is the journaling. It is not much but I felt with all the different patterns on this layout I couldn't do the journaling on the page without it getting lost.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check the full reveal over at CPC

A Spotted Dog - Child's Play Challenges

The current challenge over at Child's Play Challenges has been revealed and I have to tell you it is a good one. We teamed up with Pixels and Paper for this challenge. 
This week's photo comes is courtesy of Pixels and Paper. Seeing that this is a special event, Child's Play decided to add a recipe challenge to the mix.
something older than 1 year
3 patterned papers
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Stdio)pattern paper (Echo Park and My Mind's Eye), doily (The Paper Studio), brad (Bo Bunny), chipboard (Scenic Route), stickers (American Crafts, Studio Calico and My Mind's Eye) and pen (Project Life)
   Here is how I was inspired by these challenges. 
Gold: doily
Animal: Dog in the photo
Older than 1 yr: Chipboard frame (That is super old. I got it in a mystery bag from Scenic Route a couple of years before they closed).
3 patterned papers Yup, that is all  used.
Bling: the big brad
The photo inspired me to go with antique looking photos.
   This page is a little fancier than what I normally do for a layout of Buster but I couldn't help it one this page. I blame the gold doily I used. Something about them that make me go a little fancy.

Smile... Family - Child's Play Challenges

   Like many people I like Alice in Wonderland. However, I only care for Disney's version and not the one with Johnny Depp (that one s just too creepy). So this challenge for Child's Play Challenges had to do with this classic. 
  For my inspiration I chose to do with the route of Alice's color palette, yellow, blue, white and black. 
Supplies: cardstock (The Paper Studio), pattern paper (Glitz Design), twine (Timeless Twine), chipboard (My Mind's Eye and ?), gelatos (Faber-Castell), punch (EK Success and We R Memory Keepers), mist (Heidi Swapp), modeling paste (Liquitex), journaling card (Project Life), die cut (American Crafts), washi tape (Scotch) and doily.

I used modeling paste to soften to bright blue washi tape border. This was my first page I created in two weeks because all last two weeks I have been working on my cards for PAper Crafts world card making day contest. I am happy to say they made it there Tuesday. Now, I just hope to get a special email on Halloween saying I won.

WCMD 2014

   Happy World Card Making Day, everyone. I love this paper crafting holiday so much that I have made cards for it every year for the Paper Crafts magazine contest. This year, I will be doing the same thing plus doing some of the challenges that are going to be posted on blogs. I am hoping to get 18 cards done today. I am not sure if that is going to happen since I am a little rusty but this week I did do a couple of card practices. I hoping the few new products I got will speed the cards up. 

Here is what I got from A Cherry On Top.
I also bought some doilies from Hobby Lobby. Since I have a lot of newer papers I decided just to get some embellishments because I have a very small stash of them. 
I am hoping a few cards will be coming of my table today and they will be looking like this. 

Have a great day and I am hoping very little interruptions today.
