For my project I decided to make an altered photo album that I got from the Dollar Tree (see credit/inspiration below). It is super easy to make and so cute when it's finished. I used a variety of Cardz TV stamp sets (see below for listing). I also used the Cardz TV Die Cuts "Hallo-weenies". For the front of the photo album I followed Mary's Sketch Three card layout and adjusted the measurement slightly to fit inside the photo album. You can see all here sketches here.

Hello everyone! Time for Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #2. For the Anything Goes challenges you can create anything you'd like: 3-D, 3-D Cards, Gift Bags, Candy Bag Toppers, Home Décor, Scrapbook Pages, Mini Albums, etc. My future daughter-in-law's birthday was last week and I decided to make her a card for this challenge. I use 4 different Cardz TV stamps for this card and colored the images. I don't have Copic or Spectrum markers so I just used some Bic Mark-It Markers. I am just starting out with coloring images, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out and my FDIL seemed to like it :-)

Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #1

Hello everyone! It's time for Cardz TV Anything Goes Challenge #1. I'm so happy to be back for another term on the design team! For the Anything Goes challenges you can create anything you'd like: 3-D, 3-D Cards, Gift Bags, Candy Bag Toppers, Home Décor, Scrapbook Pages, Mini Albums, etc. I chose to make this cute old style telephone card. A lot of the kids today probably don't even know what it is LOL. I miss these old style phones and that is why I wanted to make this card when I saw it. It is from the Cricut Wild Card 2 cartridge. The sentiment "Hello!" is from Cardz TV "Bigger Everyday Sentiments". The dial is on an action wobble :-)

Cardz TV Card Designers Blog Hop "Glad You're My Dad"


Hello everyone! I'm so glad you could join us today for our "GLAD YOU'RE MY DAD" blog hop! Grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax, and get ready for some fun, inspiration, and the chance to win some blog candy! 

For today's hop we were to make anything we want for Father's Day. I used my Silhouette to make this #1 Dad scrapbook layout (Design ID #58396). I'm going to put pictures of my son with my 2 grandsons on it. I haven’t decided yet if I am going to add it to my scrapbook album or frame it and give it to my son for Father’s Day. I’m pretty sure that once he sees it, he is going to want it, so I think I need to have a 12x12 frame handy LOL. The Cardz TV stamp sets that I used on my layout are "All in the Family" and "Father's Day". You can purchase them here.
 



 

What's a blog hop without some blog candy! I will be giving away 1 set of any in stock Cardz TV stamps of your choice. All you have to do is leave me a comment and be a follower of my blog. I will use random.org to pick the winner and will announce that person on Monday, May 23. 

Mary will be giving 3 sets of Cardz TV Stamps for her blog candy, so if you’re a follower of Cardz TV, just leave a comment on her blog! Mary will also be using random.org to pick a winner, and will announce the WINNER on Monday!

Cardz TV Card Challenge #6 - Mother's Day Card

Hello everyone! It's time for Cardz TV Card Challenge #6 - Mother's Day Card. I made this butterfly card I found on the Silhouette store. I thought it was pretty and would be perfect for a Mother's Day card. I used Cardz TV stamp set "Happy Days" for my "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment (purchase here). I embossed the butterfly and added a little bling. I am happy with how it looks and it was easy to cut out and assemble.

Cardz TV Card Challenge #3 Make a Thank You Card

Hello everyone! It's time for Cardz TV Card Challenge #3 Make a Thank You Card. I found a pretty thank you card on the Cricut Creative Everyday Cards Cartridge and decided to use that for my card. Instead of cutting out the Thank You that was on the cartridge, I used the Cardz TV stamp set "Big and Bold Sentiments" (purchase here) and heat embossed "With Gratitude" on the front. I love how it turned out. It is the perfect size stamp for the front.
