My Blinkie and Blog Anniversary Giveaway

Hello Everyone ~ Whoooo! Hoooo! I figured out how to make my blinkie ready for my bloggy friends to grab and put on their blog. I have had my blinkie since April, but just couldn't figure out how to make it so it could be grabbed. My blinkie was designed by Paula from Sugar Shack Designs. I had won some blog candy from Scrappin Hens and Paula was one of the designers. I provide the graphic and she did the rest. I love how she did the animation on the letters scrappinc and then made little stars on the flower. So today I thought I am going to figure this out. LOL! I did some research and I found some wonderful instructions at the cutest blogs on the block. They have a secrets area on the top menu. Under the secrets menu there was a list of blog how to's. I clicked on how to make a grab my button box and it took me to Manic Mother . She has some wonderful and simple instructions. It was so easy, just follow her instructions and you are set. 

Stay tuned for more information on my Blog Anniversary Giveaway! YIPEE!!!!

Have a super weekend!!!!!

Happy Crafting!

Cricut 360 Challenge #2

Hello Everyone ~ I thought I would take a break from posting the wedding album layouts. I have 6 more pages to post and then the album is complete.
I haven't entered a challenge in a super long time, but was curzing around all of my bloggy friends blogs and discovered the Cricut360 challenge.  The challenge was to make a round Thank You Card. Of course by great friend Patty at creativediva is one of the design team members. Make sure you check out both blogs they are all so talented.
Well here is my entry for the challenge, hope you all like it.

Card is from Accent Essentials Cart cut at 5.5 inches
The tank robot is from Robtz Cart cut at 3.5 inches
The Tank You is print from my computer on shinny sliver paper
Paper for round card is the new cuteMates sponsored by Megan at Above Rubies Studio
The robot is from DCWV Nursery and the orange purple and black are from scraps.
Googly eyes of course and bling

The paper that I used for the round card cutMates is awesome and it makes nice cuts on the cricut, smooth and clean. That always makes everything terrific.

This card was a blast to make.

Happy Crafting!!!!

Hello Everyone ~ OMG! I haven't posted in awhile, I have been super busy. I have been so busy that I haven't even had time to check out everyone else's blogs. Sorry, I have missed you all. I received a wonderful Award from my good friend Patty at creativediva98, it is the "Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award". I will do a separate post for the award. Thanks! Patty!
Let's see where did I leave off on the wedding album, oh yeah! LOL!

Pages 20 and 21 October

Left side of page is a plain orange paper and the right side is fro DCWV. The stamps at the bottom of the orange page are from Stampin'UP, Happy Halloween set. The other stampings are from my stash. The Bride and Groom are from my stash, they are so adorable. I added stickles to make the dress and his suit stand out. The spider stamp is Distressed Spider Dance from unity. Halloween is one of my favorite pages or cards to do.
The October is a stamp form a calendar set, I used stickles around the October and the bats and birds are stamped.

I can't remember where I got the bride and groom, but they fit on this page beautifully. I added stickles to accent the tuxedo and the wedding dress. 

The graveyard strip across the bottom is a rolling stamp from Stampin'UP. I accented it with a yellow sparkle gel pen. It really looks awesome in person.

This is a journal spider stamp from Unity Distressed Spider Dance.

Pages 22 and 23 November 

The November side of the page is paper from a DCWV Holiday pack. The journal area's at the bottom are from a  unity stamp set and I went around the edged with a sparkle black gel pen. The photo mats are from my stash.
Pages 24 and 25 December

The Merry Christmas is a stamp from Inkadinkado. I used a white gel pen to fill in Merry Christmas and stickles for
the flowers and holly.

The paper is from a DCWV Holiday pack. The photo mats are from K&Company, really nice vintage look. 
The Christmas tree is from a stamp set by Inkadinkado. I accented the eyes on the santa and the eyes, carrot and buttons on the snowman.

Pages 26 and 27 January

The paper is from DCWV stack. The January, Happy New Year, mitten, Winter and champaign are rubons form Plaid Month rubons. The right side has circle and bubbles stamped in different colors from a stamp I got from the dollar bin. 
The Snowman is from a stamp set by Inkadinkado, I used an icee blue ink.

Hope all of you are doing well and having a wonderful summer. Sorry for missing in action for so long. Stay tuned for  some blog candy for my blog anniversary that has come and gone. WOW! how time flies.
