Home Run

I thought it was time to share another one of my tee-ball pages. The "A little dirt never hurt" quote came from the All ABout Boys set from the Cutting Cafe. I'm surprised that I've been using this set as much as I have, since I only have girls.

So many sets, so little time. If you haven't been to the Cutting Cafe lately be sure to take a peek. Lots of cute sets to work with. I'm in the process of making something with the It's about time set and can't wait to use the Let's go for a ride set. It is cute and it also comes with some fun sentiments.

Don't be square

This week's Pixie Dust Studio Challenge is called 'Don't be Square.' I don't know about you but telling me NOT to make a square project just makes me want to make one *LOL* Normally I'm all over making a shaped card but my original idea didn't quite work out so I opted for a rectangle instead.

I used the Romeo Loves Juliet image from the newly released set called Have a Ball. In order to make the image stand out more I used a circle punch and only colored that portion of it. I think it makes them appear more cozy that way. Here's the close-up:

And here's the bookmark that I made with it. For some reason I couldn't get the picture to appear any bigger. Be sure to check out what the Pixie's have done this week. They did an amazing job at making adorable shaped projects.

Digital Tuesday Challenge

Scroll down or click HERE to see the latest
Pixie Dust Studio release.

Happy Tuesday!! I hope you are ready for a challenge because the Digital Tuesday DT has one for you. This week we are asking you to use those die cuts. Grab those Spellbinders or any other die cut shape and create!! Remember that you must use something image, sentiment, pick.

We have a great sponsor again this week.
My Grafico is generously giving away 1 free set plus 20% off to this week's winner. They also graciously let the DT play with a fun set called Alice's Tea Party Stamps by Zenware Designs.

For my card this week I used one of the Alice images from the set and paired it up with another digital image. I believe it is from Digital Delights.

Since Valentine's Day was yesterday I thought I'd keep the red going just a little longer. It's hard to see but I used Stampin Ups Top Note Die for my die cut.

You and Me

I have a couple more Valentine's projects to post before I move on to other things. Here's a cute little tin of sweetheart candies - the jumbo size ones. The tag was made using an image from The Cutting Cafe. The set is called Animal and Bug Mini Colored Circle Set. The designer paper that the candies were wrapped in is from another Cafe set and is called Words of Love Colored Printable set. In order to save printer ink I re-sized the designer paper to the size of the candy roll. I was able to fit multiple patterns on one sheet of paper.

Be sure to check out The Cutting Cafe. You'll be amazed at the variety to choose from and even happier when you see how often new sets become available.

Digital Tuesday Challenge

It's Tuesday! Digital Tuesday to be exact. This week's challenge is to use Gray plus one other color. If you've been following me it will come to no surprise that my other color is pink. I wasn't sure if I would be able to pull off this week's challenge. I have to admit that once I started grabbing different pinks it all came together.

This week's sponsor is Limited Runs Stamps and they are offering 3 free digi's to the winner this week. They have a wide variety of digital stamps and do have Freebie Friday so be sure to check them out.

Unfortunately I had my project already made so I didn't have time to use a Limited Runs image this week. The dog image I used is from Tiddly Inks and can be found on their freebie page.

Be sure to check out what the DT made this week. I sure hope you join in on the challenge this week. I'd love to see what your color will be.
