Fun~day Friday

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is Sherry Baldy. The challenge starts Friday, July 31st at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, August 7th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is this Anything Goes! Here is what I created using her Messy Bessy digi:

I love this digi...she is way too cute! And I am a total "messy Betsy"! I am forever spilling coffee, my lunch or something down me. I keep those Tide pens everywhere-my desk, purse, car, home.  I did learn one valuable lesson with this coloring today...don't open my COPICs over the image. My one pen "spit" as I opened it...right onto the paper. Luckily nothing too tragic. And the layout is from my CTMH hostess club night.

I love seeing what everyone creates for the Fun~day Friday challenges! Please make sure to stop by my DT sister's blogs to check out what they made for this challenge, I know you'll love it! Jo's Scrap Shack Tina…

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsors this week is Fawn Lawn. The challenge starts Friday, July 24th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, July 31st at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is this sketch:  Here is what I created for this week: The metal sheet was run through the Big Shot with an embossing folder and then I just dropped Distress Inks onto the metal sheet and let it dry. Then I rubbed black Archival Ink all over (tip...be sure your sheet is completely dry before rubbing ink on it or it will ruin your ink pad!) and finished the metal sheet off with a little sanding once it was completely dry. It's one of the great techniques I learned at a recent Inky Distress class at Joys of Life Scrapbooking. You can't see in the photo but there is a sheer green ribbon underneath the white one. I used a 3Twenty Crafts stamp for my sentiment. The metal sheet is sticky on the back but everything else was adhered using glo…

I can't believe it's Friday already...this week has just flown by for me. So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps. The challenge starts Friday, July17th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, July 24th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is to create something with embossing and/or distressing. Here is what I created using the Mixed Media digi from LBBS: I have been taking mixed media class at Joys of Life Scrapbooking and am breaking out of my comfort zone and getting more creative! I created my background with the Dylusion Sprays and then did my heat embossing for the flowers, roses and leaves. Next I inked the butterfly in the center. Then I printed the digi on deli sheet paper and glued it on. The final step was stamping the sentiments.

I did something wrong putting the deli sheet on because you can still see the edges. In the class I took we didn't see any edges. So...wh…

Fun~day Friday is here!

So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is Bugaboo. The challenge starts Friday, July 10th at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, July 17th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is nautical seascapes. And who doesn't love anything nautical this time of year! I love the warm weather and everything that goes along with it (except bugs...lol).  So here is what I created this week using the Lighthouse from Bugaboo.
One of the things I love best about digi stamps is being able to resize them. When I printed the digi I couldn't decide which set of pictures I was going to use it with so I printed various sizes on one sheet of paper. These pictures are from Florida. I don't think Florida is known for lighthouses but I love the picture of the water (although it's got a horrible glare in every photo I took) and water reminds me of lighthouses. When I think of lighthouses I think the Jersey shore. I guess because…

Anything Goes with Fun~day Friday

I hope everyone is getting some time to relax this weekend and do something you consider "me time". Whether it's a BBQ with family and/or friends, crafting, working in the garden, just finding some time to ready - whatever is relaxing to you! I am spending today crafting with a good friend. 
So here are the details for this week's challenge: Our sponsor this week is Little Blue Button Stamps . The challenge starts Friday, July 3rd at 12:00 AM (eastern time) and ends Friday, July 10th at 6:00 PM (eastern time). And our theme for this week is Anything Goes! I used the image Enjoying the Music Eris for this challenge. Growing up we had my grandparents old phonograph in the basement. When I was little I would listen to the old records and dance. I haven't had a chance to dig out my photos of it, but once again, when I do...I have my layout ready. I just need to add a few embellis and some journaling.


I love seeing what everyone creates for the Fun~day Friday …
