Hello!  Today is my day to share more projects featuring the sweet gnomes from the May 2018 Club La-La Land Crafts kit!  These kits are AMAZING and it still feels like a dream that I am on the design team!  Every time I pick up these stamps and dies I am inspired!  I may even have stepped outside my usual comfort zone of cards...

Make It Crafty Inspiration Design: Flowers for Mom

Hello!  How is everyone doing?  We are half through the week!  And has it been a hectic busy one!  There has been quite a bit of coloring and crafting going on for design team projects and orders.  I even partook in a 12 Days of Coloring Challenge!  But today I'm popping in to share my most recent design team inspiration for Make It Crafty!  

I received several orders for Mother's Day cards and keeping with the Flora theme for this month's MIC challenge I selected Flower Corner Arrangement to work with.  I opted for a mostly monochromatic color scheme in blue (with just a hint of green and gold, like my eyes).  I kept it simple and added just a few dies.  All are from La-La Land Crafts (Fancy Doily Border, Build-A-Frame Fancy Large, Honeycomb, Filigree Crown, Filigree Hearts) except for the Mom word die.  The latter is from SugarPea Designs.  I finished with a few enamel dots as embellishments.

Some Odd Girl Coloring for Days

Hey!  How's everyone doing today?  I'm sharing a few cards I made using some of the images I have colored up during the current Some Odd Girl 12 Days of Coloring Challenge.  This is a super fun and easy challenge because all you have to do is add a photo of your SOG coloring progress.  Not a completed projected or even a fully colored image!  That's my kind of challenge!  Lol  I have shared a completely colored image each day so far and have gone on to make cards with a few of them.  

First, this week is Teacher Appreciation Week so I made a card for my son's teacher.  I enclosed a Target gift card as well for a little thank you for all she does for her students.  I colored Library Mae for the occasion.  I created the sentiment with a SugarPea Designs stamp set called Noted and their Teacher die.

Next, I needed a card for my brother's big 4-0 so I colored up Nerdy Kody.

Make It Crafty May Coloring Challenge: Flora

Hello!  Welcome to another month's Make It Crafty coloring challenge!  The theme for May is Flora.  I have been coloring flowers more often since joining the team so this was a fun challenge for me and it fit perfectly with a 100th birthday card I needed to make for someone who loves flowers and butterflies.  

I started with the Happy Flower Arrangement then merged the butterfly from Butterfly Lily.  Both are colored with Copics.  I then added a chipboard birthday sentiment, also colored with Copics.  The dies are all from La-La Land Crafts.  I've used Loopy Doily, Cherry Blossom Fan, Cherry Blossom Border, Two Butterflies, and Shabby Flourishes.  I also added a few enamel dots.









Hope you liked my crafty inspiration!  Join us over at the challenge for your chance to win one of three $5 gift vouchers for the MIC shop!  To be eligible you must use at least ONE Make It Crafty product on your project and follow the challenge theme.  All coloring mediums are welcome and your entry does not have to be a finished project.  Enter our Flora coloring challenge HERE!

Club La-La Land Crafts Throwback: Renaissance Marci (July 2016)

Hi there!  Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day.  Though I'm not a scrapbooker, I am an avid papercrafter so almost the same thing, right?  That means I get to celebrate too!  Be sure to check out your favorite crafty places as a lot of the online shops are offering sales and discounts this weekend!  For instance, La-La Land Crafts has a 20% off code through May 7th!  I did a little crafting yesterday and wanted to share one of my creations.  This card was made using Renaissance Marci.  She was originally from the July 2016 Club kit but is now available in the store.  This kit came with the Caste Border Die, Bricks Die, and Scroll Banner Die as well as the Magical Day stamp set which includes a mini Marci, a unicorn, and a sentiment.  I needed a card for my brother's girlfriend and was told her favorite Disney princess is Aurora (Sleeping Beauty).  I don't have an Aurora stamp per se so I colored up Marci to resemble her.





Marci is colored with Copics.  I decided to try a pattern with my coloring on her dress bodice and tiara.  She was then fussy cut, and I popped her up on some foam squares.  Since Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger on a spinning wheel in the story, I used the Vintage Bike die to replicate the wheel and added a few pearl topped pins (the closet I had to needles).  The dies I used are all available in the LLLC shop!  And don't forget about that 20% off good until tomorrow!

Make It Crafty Inspiration Design: Kick Up Your Heels

Hello!  Today I have some Make It Crafty Inspiration for you!  I decided to make a masculine card this time.  I know Mother's Day is in a couple of week's and Father's Day is over a month off, but I was inspired to use Tap Dancing Heel Click for a card for my dad.

The image is colored with Copics.  I added a bunch of La-La Land Crafts dies and one Tim Holtz On the Edge border die (Star Cluster).  The LLLC I used are Photo Elements, Skyline Border, Hello Tag, Lamp Post, Sunburst, Bracket (from Bracket and Arrow set), and Clipboard.  I also added one of Zoe's awesome chipboard sentiments.  This one is a cursive sentiment and it's a work of art all on its own!  I colored the mat with my B95 Copic and left the top as the natural cream chipboard color.
