More Candy Land Cards!

I am still working with the adorable Queen and Co Candy Land kit! I just love the sweet shakers that the kit helps you create.
The fibers in the kit can be used to make the cutest cotton candy cones too!
The little candy toppings that you can use in the shakers look like real candy!

Watercolor Resist with Simon Says Stamp Kit

This week, the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Resist It. I decided to use the February Simon Says Stamp Kit A Colorful Crafty Life to create a stamped heat embossed watercolor resist.
The kit actually comes with a Daniel Smith watercolor palette and a waterbrush so I used those to watercolor over a stamped and heat embossed image for my resist.
If you would like to see how I created this card, check out my video here:

If you would like to take a look at the products I used, check them out below. Have a wonderful day!

Top Ten Blog Hop 2017 + GIVEAWAY!


Sorry to be late on drawing a winner! After the holidays hangover in our home for sure! Anyways thank you all for the wonderful comments and following! I used Random.org to choose a number and the winner is:
Love seeing your cute designs. Your layouts are so awesome.
I love the last card with the felt hearts; very sweet.
Congrats Rebecca, from Rebecca lol! I will email you to confirm your email address for sending the gift card! Stay tuned because I love doing giveaways as often as I can! Happy 2018!

I was thrilled to be asked to participate in this year's Top 10 Blog Hop! Definitely make your way through the entire hop because there are lots of giveaways throughout! And make your way to the end of the post to see my giveaway!

My first favorite from the year is a layout that I made for my Big Picture Classes Small Photos Make a Big Impact class where I show how to use small photos on projects.
For my second I chose a layout from another Big Picture Classes class called Two In One where you make a layout in each lesson and then use the remainder of the products from the layout to make a card.
For #3, I chose a layout I created when I guest designed for Ashley Horton's The Cut Shoppe.
For the fourth, I chose a Jillibean Soup layout. Designing for them has been a blast this year!
For the fifth project, I chose a layout I made for the Stash Bash video hop for the month of March. Stash Bash is a bunch of crafters trying to use up their stash rather than buy lots of new supplies. Check out my playlist on YouTube to see them all. We took a break for December, but we'll be back in January!
Now it's time to move onto some cards!
I've been designing for Therm O Web for years and every release gets better and better.
I had the opportunity to design for Queen & Co. this year and for me it was a match made in heaven. I love their bright colors, rainbow products and easy to create shakers!
I was thrilled to get the chance to guest design for Pretty Pink Posh this year!
I loved designing for Cardmaker Magazine this year too! We got the chance to take part in some super fun blog hops like this one with L'il Inker.
I also had the opportunity to design for Poppystamps this year! I love their dies and stamps.

Last but not least, I made a bunch of cards to participate in Simon Says Stamp challenges.
Ok, that's 12, but I had trouble narrowing them down! Thank you so much for making it through my top 12! My giveaway is a $15 gift card to Simon Says Stamp! There are several ways to enter.
