I am loving these chipboard Thickers I won a couple of months ago from Club CK.
I used the them for the "Baby" title.
For this baby page of mine I scraplifted this layout from Laura M. (aka moongirl).
As you can tell I love my trims and washi tapes.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back this Sunday for ABAC challenge and reveal.
p.s. Stop by my friend Erin B for her August giveaway.

Hoilday Cheer

Last week I was able to work on a page of my mom's first Christmas.
I use the current ScrapFit sketch. It is found here.
One this page I have applied Glossy Accents to a few of the circles that I drew stars on and sprinkled glitter on them while it was still wet. After it was dried I bent the paper to make it look like cracked glass.

I have not been spending much time lately crafting due to the fact I have been redoing my entire scrap room. I hope to have this done before winter.Until then, I will be stealing away to the basement at night to craft.
Also I want to remind you about this Sunday ABAC new challenge is up. You might want to stop by now to see some blog candy that is being given away.

Challenge Me Happy (DT Call)

Hi everyone. I am here today to show you what I created with the Challenge Me Happy #27 challenge. This was a recipe challenge which I absolutely love.
one or more stamps ( the ticket is stamped behind the "Sunshine" accordion fold rosette. I also stamped on the background paper to give a slight aged loo to it. )
two photos
ribbon or twine or both
two or more paper clips
no cardstock ( this was hard to do. I love my Kraft)
three patterned papers or more
Here is what I came up with.  
Since no card stock was allowed I used a black barker with a craft knife built in it to mat the hexagons.

I am going to finally share what design team I got on. It is called Anything But A Card (ABAC). It is a new challenge blog that will be revealing it's first challenge on Sept 2nd. The challenges are biweekly but each Sunday you will see our teams approach to them.
This is how the whole thing started. I applied for a different DT (Shop Our Stash) that Clara runs which I didn't make it but she contacted me saying she would like me to join this new team. Of course, I said yes. What I found funny about this is on Club CK you will notice my screen name in Cards4Ever. I guess it should be changed now ABACCards4Ever. Just kidding I am still going to be C4E.
I hope to see you over there next month.

Sad & Happy

Today I want to share some news today.
 I decided to close down my Artfire store after two years on there. I came to realize that it was costing me more to run than I was making.

I found out I made my first design team after a year of trying.
If you are looking for a great giveaway a friend of my, Ashley Horton is having a fab prize.
