Hey everyone, it's time for another Fusion Card Challenge. This particular challenge has some many fun colors to play with, plus the classic chevron pattern. What's not to love?!?! Check it out

Just go HERE to play along.

1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

Here is my take on the inspiration. I love all the colors and I just so happened to have a piece of zigzag vellum with all those colors. So, combined with the sketch I made this card. I, of course used some sweet stamp shop stamps and went for a birhthday theme.
 I used:

Celebrate life

Hello everyone! 
Do you ever have those days where you can reflect on life and think wow, isn't it grand? Or maybe the days where you think, well this is it, this is life? uggh! I know I do! Life it's self is such a roller coaster, so many emotions, so many ups and downs, twists and curves, but that is what makes it so great, grand, adventurous, fun, and FUNNY! Things haven't always been easy or grand, BUT they really have been adventurous. I love life so much, the beauty, the people, EVERYTHING, ok, well I may not LOVE everything but I always try to find something to love in everything, and that can be, well....challenging sometimes. My favorite days are the days when you wake up and really feel you have fresh eyes, new eyes. Everything looks like it has been awakened and rejuvenated. The sky looks bluer and so much larger, and for a moment the world doesn't feel so small, but more infinite than ever. I also feel like my love has grown and that my soul has been newly awakened, and my appreciation has deepened.  Now those, those are my most favorite days. The days you really want to jump up and down and CELEBRATE LIFE!!!  So to that, I created this:

I just love the this fun circle embossing folder. I used my Tim Holtz distress inks to add some bright, fun colors for uniqueness and some yellow enamel dots to really make it pop. Does this card not SCREAM life to you, haha?

So, what are you waiting for? Go out celebrate life, the good, the bad, the ugly, the fun and funny. Find beauty wherever you go, and open your soul to the big big world. It's amazing what you might find, even if it's your self :)

Want to celebrate more of life? There is still  plenty of time to join in our Celebration challenge at the very brand new SRM Challenge Blog. You can find all the deets and more inspiration HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

Brand New SRM Challenge

Hey everyone, I, just have to start out saying how excited I am to be a part of this amazing design team. We all hope you love playing along and finding new and exciting ways to play with your SRM products with all the inspiration.

So here is how the challenge will go:

  1. Design something using the current months theme and SRM products
  2. Take a picture and upload into the gallery HERE
  3. Maybe you want to make another something since you have a WHOLE MONTH and a PRIZE at stake
  4. Peek around at your current competition, maybe give them a high five or words of praise for the great work too :)
  5. Then come back at the end of the month and check out the Winners post. (if you are the winner make sure to collect your prize, by following the instructions on how too)

Now, that that is all under our belts and we know how to play along, here is my inspiration for our current theme "CELEBRATIONS". You can go HERE to play along.

I used my triangle embossing folder to add some fun texture to my SRM kraft bag, then did some fun layering with SRM doily, Authentique paper, and used the SRM Sticker Sentiment Birthday Greetings, and some pink pearls to finish off. 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to head on over to say hi to the rest of the design team and you can go HERE to play along with the current challenge
Well, I cannot wait to see what everyone creates! Have a great day1

Sweet Stamp Shops April Release #1

Hello to all my Peeps today! 
Are you excited for the new April Release with Sweet Stamp Shop?
Check it ALL out here on the blog!
Well this is the first release for the month and you are going to flip for them, I can just feel it! :)

Grab your coffee, because I have some extra special stuff to show you at the end!

So let's check them out. 

Make sure to check out the rest of the design team, they have some amazing projects from today's release on their blog you wont want to miss. 

And we have a special cross promotion with Authentique this week, so as an added bonus I thought I would show them off to you. Make sure to stop over on the Authentique blog and say hi and see what everyone has been busy creating.

I love to make banners, and so this was a perfect time to use all the cute paper from Authentique. Flourish collection was perfect for a fun springy banner and Sauve gave a nice masucline/boy feel nd perfect for everday "use" especially when you live in a house full of boys! And then, of course I couldn't miss making a card!!! Maybe even a little "I spy" for the next april release?!?! 

For the projects I made I used the following and you can find them all in the shop HERE.
