PSC47:Anything Goes:Trio of Travel Tags

Hi everyone..welcome back for another weekly challenge with The Perfect Sentiment. 

Today is bittersweet for me as I love the challenge we have lined up for you today, Anything Goes, but this is also my last post as a Senior Design Team member with the Perfect Sentiment. I thought long and hard about this decision and it is just time for me to move on. I have really enjoyed being on this DT and meeting some wonderful & super creative & talented ladies. I've been on this Team when it first started almost a year ago by Jenn so it is hard to leave when I've been a part of this team for so long..but I still want all of you to visit the challenge blog every Wednesday & continue to participate in the weekly challenges they have lined up for you : )

Now on to my "Anything Goes" project...

 As I mentioned before..I love this week's challenge. I decided to create a Trio of Travel Tags for my final DT project. 

 First up...Enjoy the Journey! I used a Tim Holtz gear to mimic a steering wheel..tied some cotton trim around the tag and added some bling!

Next we have My Journey. This tag is more for journaling & writing down a fun memory from the vacation or excursion you went on. I used a memo stick pin to hold up the remember sentiment.

Lastly...The Time Of My Life! I used one of the tags from the paper collection..topped it off with some trim and used a 7 Gypsies clip on the side. The bottom is wrapped with some black jute. 

This was a super fun, quick & easy project and this is something that you could easily create yourself to remember a road trip, cruise or whatever type of vacation you took. These could also be added to a layout or mini album. 

Now for some inspiration from the rest of the Perfect Sentiment DT...

They are generously offering up 7 yes 7 free images (which is a $21 value) of digi stamps for the winner of this week's challenge. Wow...that is such a great prize. Be sure to stop by their online store and check out all of the images they have.

Lavender Drawers

Hi everyone...welcome back for another scrappy post : )

Today I am sharing a project that I LOVE!!! I altered some drawers using the Chateau Lavender Stack  from DCWV, crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and some other fab craft products. 

This started out as a naked wood shelving unit & chipboard. I am so thrilled with how this turned out & it looks amazing in my craft room : )

I created some crinkle ribbon flowers & nestled them among some silk flowers I had in my stash. 

I love how the papers look on the drawers themselves & how the metal drawer pulls from Tim Holtz complete the look. 

 And now for the back & side views....

Creating this project was so much fun & how could you not love all that purple goodness..haha. I can't wait to fill the drawers up with some vintage buttons, trims and other lovely embellis. 

You can also see this post over at 3 Girl Jam.

Thanks for stopping by & I hope seeing my altered project will inspire you to work on your own project for your craft or office space. If you do...please let me know as I would love to see photos of what you've created : )

Happy Scrappin!!

PDCC146:Now You're Stylin

Hi everyone...I have a really fun fashionable card to share with you today. It's my submission for the Color Splash Challenge at The Play Date Cafe!

And here is the color story.....

I honest to goodness knew exactly how my project for this challenge was going to look as soon as I saw this color splash photo. 

This is probably about as close to a Fashion Designer as I am gonna get so I wanted to really play it up with the feathers...haha. I used some of the yummy crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam to create the dress...I love how it turned out.

This was a super fun card to create & even though I am a purple girl...I am really lovin this green color : )

Thanks for stopping by & checking out what I'm up to...I always appreciate my visitors : )

PSC46:Missing Wings

Hey everyone...welcome back for another challenge with The Perfect Sentiment!! 

What a fun challenge we have in store for you this week...your creative task is to create a card with a sentiment of missing you (make sure your sentiment is on the front of the card) & the twist is to use something with wings on your card. This winged element can be something on the card stock you choose, your embellishment or in my case...actual wings : )

At first I had an idea in my head but I wasn't quite sure how to pull it off so I thought to myself...ah..I'll just "wing" it...haha..ok so that was a pretty lame joke but seriously here's my card for this week's challenge......

Ok..I have confession to make...I've been hoarding these wings..yes hoarding them. I picked these feathery beauties up at the Creating Keepsakes convention earlier this year and I LOVE them!! They are just so vintagy/shabby chic looking to me which is something I adore. But I knew they would work perfectly for this week's challenge. 

See what I mean????

The black bling just really pops off the page against the muted toned CS...which I think goes so well with the crumpled & distressed patterned paper I used for the base of this card. 

Who doesn't love some Prima matched up with some yummy twine from The Twinery. Don't you just love that yummy textured gold ribbon? 

Stamped sentiment in Tim Holtz's Broken China..goes so well with the gold ribbon which is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I'm a member of their Ribbon Of The Month club and this was from the November 2011 assortment (ok so maybe I was hoarding this ribbon as well..haha).

To carry the look from the front to the inside...I cut a circle from the same patterned paper...distressed it and topped it off with a vintage wood button...twine & more of the gold ribbon. 

 Here's a closer look at the embelli I created...I love mixing vintage with new...such a unique look I think : )

Now are you ready for some inspiration from my fellow DT members....

PDCC145:Enjoy Life

Enjoy Life!! That's what I try to do each and every day...enjoy life. This also happens to be the title for today's project which I'm submitting for The Play Date Cafe's challenge for this week.

First let me share my project & then I'll show you the color story we worked with this week...

and the color story......

I just had an order from Pink Paislee arrive a few weeks ago and when I saw the color story I just knew exactly which collection I wanted to use...Nantucket!!

I started off by using a round wood wall hanging I picked up on one of my junkin trips...painted it white & then distressed the edges so the lovely detail on the wood would show through. Since the Nantucket collection is beach themed..I used some bling to mimick waves & tucked them behind some lovely lace & crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam.

I made a small flower from more of the crinkle ribbon..added some floral pins & topped it with a cute seahorse tile.

Enjoy Life life trading card from the Nantucket collection. I added a few flat backed pearls to sort of balance the left side of the wall hanging.

Love how the crinkle ribbon looks with a little bit of white lace peeking through!! I have this hanging in my craft room & I just love how it looks and it's such a wonderful sentiment to look at reminding me to...well...Enjoy Life!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today..don't forget that 3 Girl Jam has a new challenge blog starting this Friday the 24th...there are codes & much much be sure to check out all of the details HERE!!

Happy Scrappin!!
