TGIF Challenge

I recently found a fun new group on Facebook that has a great blog.  You can check out their blog here http://tgifchallenges.blogspot.com/.  They are featuring fun challenges that their designers participate in and we can participate in the fun as well.  So I thought this would be a great way to challenge me a little as well.  Here was the first challenge.

I had so much fun with the challenge the I actually created 3 projects.  So I thought I would share all three.  I really do love how well these colors work together.

Heart Card TGIF challenge

I really love how this one turned out.  I liked the card with just the hearts but I really loved it when I added the little extra touches like the buttons with ribbon and the heart bubble.

Thanks Card TGIF Challenge

This was the second card I made and probably my favorite.  I just love how it turned out.  So just a note the feathers on this card are included in the carry over items from the Holiday Catalog.  They are not listed in the new catalog so I’m not sure they will continue to carry over.  That means if you didn’t get them already and love them like I do be sure to get them now.

Thanks Card TGI Challenge Close Up

Here’s a little closer look at the feathers and the words.  I really love how it looks.  One quick note on the background.  I stamped off first before stamping my white card-stock so that it would be a bit lighter.

So my last project I thought it would be fun to use these colors to create my own Project Life card for my page.

Project Life Page TGIF Challenge  The one thing about project life is that it’s hard to get a good picture when the pages are in the page protector.  I actually attached the extra elements to the page protector instead of the actual pictures so I couldn’t take the pictures out for the picture.

Project Life card TGIF Challenge

I took out the center card and took a close up picture so you could see how easy it was to make this simple card for this page.  I used one of the grid cards to make it easy for journaling.  I love this stamp set and punch for Project life it just works so well with everything.  Remember this awesome stamp set and punch is on the retired list so be sure to get them before they are gone for good.

birthday-flowers-heat-stickThis is the swap that Brandi made for her meeting.  I really love how she used heat and stick powder to make the flowers sparkle.

Heat and stick powder is really quite easy to use.  If you have ever heat embossed than you know how to use heat and stick powder you just need to add two more steps.

First you need to stamp your image.  If you are using the dazzling diamonds heat and stick like on this card then you would want to stamp with a craft ink pad so that it stays sticky.

Next you need to pour on the heat and stick powder just like you would embossing powder.  Be sure to use the powder pals for easy clean up and to be able to put your left overs back in the bottle.  Once you’ve covered your project shake off the excess and tap the back to make sure you have removed all the extra powder.

Now you are ready to heat the powder.  Just heat it up with your heat gun.  You will see it start to melt just like you do with the embossing powder.

Once you have melted the heat and stick powder you are ready for your glitter.  Simply sprinkle the glitter over the heat and stick powder.  Use a another powder pal for this.

After you have applied the glitter re-heat the image for a few seconds just to set the heat and stick powered.

That’s it your done.  You’ve added a fun sparkle to your stamped image.  I encourage you to give it a try today.

Marvelous Monday 3-23-09

When every we go to meetings we usually get to make fun projects and Brandi’s meeting was no exception.  We made this fun Passion Frame.live-with-passion-sign

It was really pretty easy to make.  The back is made with our small on board book basics to give it plenty of structure.  This would make a fun gift for a friend or neighbor.  I used this layout idea for the front cover of my paper bag scrapbook.  One of the things I love about this is how we tied the ribbon.  We folded the ribbon in half then pushed the folded end through and pulled the ends through the loop we pushed through.  Then we tied the loose ends together at the top.  I like the nice finished look that it adds.
