Crafting Compulsion?

Does this ever happen to you??? Do you ever become obsessed with the silliest things? Do you sometimes exhibit a crafting compulsion that could potentially land you in a twelve step program? Okay maybe I am being a tad melodramatic, but I think I may have a problem:) So I have been going OCD over these Lace & Doily Stickers that they are carrying at the Dollar Tree. They are so adorable, and I feel this overwhelming compulsion to get them. It’s been hit or miss for me in finding them, and I have found myself guilty of drawing others into my sickness.

My mother was able to obtain several sets…my girlfriend Jona found a few…my girlfriend Karen made an attempt, but alas there were no doily stickers to be found where she went. In an effort to appease her crafty friend, she did however find some adorable 3D garden stickers. No they were not doilies but they were hecka cute!

So to say thank you to her for redirecting my one track doily loving mind, I made her this set of mini cards using the garden stickers.

They were super easy to put together, and the turned out really cute. I even made a tiny desktop box for them to sit in, so they could be kept close at hand.

So thank you to all those crazy ladies, who were trying to help this crazy crafter in her quest.

Until the next obsession…Happy Crafting!

PMDC-050: Sketch Challenge

It’s been a while since I’ve had an opportunity to play along with the Digi Challenge at Pixel Maven’s Retreat. So here we go. I’ve been wanting to design a few 4×6 photo mounts for my Project Life Binder, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to do that and play along.

So I knew what I wanted to make, and where I wanted to play along….but what was my theme going to be??? Looking through some of my older MDS files I came across the Wonderfall Kit, and that clinched it!!! I love Fall!!! And I love the whimsical designs in this kit.

Below is my take on the challenge…I hope to see your interpretations, be it digital, hybrid or traditional.

Until Next Time…Happy Crafting!

Digi Birthday Card – PMDC-038

Totally inspired by Nicole Watt and Kris Kilcoyne over at  Pixel Maven’s Retreat  , I decided to use their sketch to design a Digital card front.

There are a lot of birthdays to celebrate coming up soon, and digital cards offer a multitude of options and great versatility.  This would also be a cute card front for Valentine’s or Mother’s Day.

I thought the DSP “Flirtatious” had excellent colors and the Delicate Doilies Digital stamp added tons of fun to the project!

I’d love to see your take on the challenge!

Too Early for Valentine’s Day? Never! – PMDC-034

My hubby was so sweet yesterday!!! When I came home in the evening there was a nice surprise waiting for me on my nightstand. A beautiful bottle of J’adore by Dior perfume. I had never tested it out before, but it has a lovely scent.

“J’adore”, I believe is French for I Love, which got me thinking Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. So a little burnt out on the Christmas Card front…and yes my cards did make it in the mail this year, wooo whooo… I thought I would work on a little Valentine’s.

Nicole Watt and Kris Kilcoyne over at  Pixel Maven’s Retreat  have a wonderful sketch challenge this week, that I thought would make a wonderful card front.

Below is my take on the sketch.

PMDC-034 - Entry

Yes, I used my favorite digital DSP, Beau Chateau…predictable, but it makes me sooooo happy! If the quote seems familiar, that’s because it is from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice…oh that Mr. Darcy!!!

I’d love to see your interpretations on the sketch!

Until Next Time… Happy Crafting!
