I created this cute little card using a digital stamp from our sponsor, SasayakiGlitter. I had this cool paper that looks like it has hairs in it and i thought it would be good for a distressed, map look. The dark brown background is the one side of that cardstock, the ship wheel and tag is the other side. I had super fun pirate embellishments I found in my stash so I used the coins and the treasure chest from that. And my tag/sentiment is from Jaded Blossom, using their Pirate Booty set. 

Walking the plank next is Rebecca!

Here's our amazing line up in case you get lost:

Design Team Day ~ Flower Box Card

Hi Everyone! Today is my day to post at Connie Can Crop's blog. I want to share with you a card I made that goes along with Connie's challenge! Lets start with me never having done a box card before. I was always so over whelmed by them! My DT sister Kim is always making them, and making them look so easy! So I gave it a spin. I love them! And I love how my card came out! LOL



I used a file from Lori Whitlock that I bought from the silhouette store. All of my paper is scrap from my stash. The middles of the flowers (the purple flowers) are a fabric/foam flower that I have had for a long time.

I'm going to put this card in the gift basket we are giving to my sons teacher at the end of the school year (next week! Yikes!)

My neighbor just bought a Cricut Expression from a local yard sale page and had no idea how to work it. So, I dusted off my E2 and worked along side her. I haven't used that machine in the longest time so I was a little rusty! I used the create a critter cartridge and came up with this little card. Super simple, but I do love it :) 

Up next is Sue

Connie Can Crop Monthly Challenge #58


Time for another monthly challenge with Connie! This one is the inspiration challenge, and she wants you to use the following picture as your guide! 


I created a card using lots of flowers! No die cuts on this one, as I'm trying to use up my piles and piles of random things! 



I used a die and sentiment from Jaded Blossom. All of the flowers were leftovers from sets I bought from a craft expo one year. The purple tape came from Connie's Crafty Cart.

DT Day w/Connie Can Crop

Hi Everyone! It's my turn to post over at Connie Can Crop's blog! Today I want to share a cute card I made using a file from Paper Crafting World, our sponsor this month! I'm going to be honest, I'm not a very good paper piecer (is that a thing?!). I usually go the print/cut route to save me some time! But I pieced this little bear together to try it out. About an hour later (does it always take that long!??), shes finished! Shes adorable too ;) 



Supplies Used~ 
Jaded Blossom Birthday Treat Tags
Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Dies
Stickles Fruit Punch color
All cardstock is from my recycled stash. 
I have to use it up! The bin is over taking my area!
American Craft Ribbon
