Sweetest Things


Happy Wednesday! I'm here today to share a trio of creations I made using the Baby Anya and Ian set. This set is just completely adorable because, obviously you get both male and female babies but you also get the most adorable giraffe ever. These babies look great together or separate. I began with the tag (keeping the gift in mind) and then used the same technique to create a card. I did this to have a cohesive look so I could use them together, if need be. 

In regards to the giraffe card, I was aiming for a back to school look/encouragement card but I may have failed in that aspect. Lol. I created it with  my niece in mind (as she is still into cutesy images such as this one) but when I asked what she thought, she said it looked like it was made for a baby :) So the sentiment didn't seem to make an impact and it looks like Ill need to change it.

Since today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop make you sure you hop over where you'll find my post along with the materials I used linked to the shop. While there make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Back to School Sale.
Thanks for stopping by

Oh boy! Ian



Hello and Happy Day to you! I hope your weekend was a great one. Mine was full of cool weather and gave us a respite from the sun but its looking that nice weather inst going to last. There is humidity in the air and that is not fun. Moving on :) My greeting farm series is coming to a close over at Quick Creations and so here is my final project featuring Ian.

The last few days have been spent at the beach, the air there is much fresher and cooler than city air and so that inspired this gift bag. I know that it doesn't look like a summer/beach theme item but I went with the colors (blues and green for the water and kraft for the sand) to evoke that feeling. These upcoming days are going to be grueling hot again and so I need keep that feeling present :).
Now its your turn to get crafty. Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet Wishes

The Greeting Farm Blog - Summertime Challenge


Hello and Happy Day to you! I hope your weekend was a great one. Mine was full of sun, sun, a sweet boys birthday party and more sun. The weather has been out of control lately and Im hoping this week brings on some cool days. I'm continuing The Greeting Farm Series that is happening over at Quick Creations. Noelle is promoting several stamp companies and I got The Greeting Farm, woohoo! My character is Ian, so for the next few QC posts, its going to be all about him with some Anya thrown in the mix.

My previous Ian post had Ian and Anya going to a royal summer ball. Now, Ian is going to a summer party. This card was made for a sweet little 4 year old that just celebrated over the weekend. He loves cupcakes (of course), marvel (because he knows whats good for him) and being cute all around ;) This birthday Ian, although intended for birthdays, can also be used for other type of projects. I just think a little altering can be done or just left as is. I hope this inspires you to get crafty. Thanks for stopping by.

A Royal Hello




Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was full of fun and sunshine. I'm here today to continue the new Greeting Farm Series that is happening over at Quick Creations. Noelle is promoting several stamp companies and I got The Greeting Farm, woohoo! My character is Ian, so for the next few QC posts, its going to be all about him with some Anya thrown in the mix.

My previous Ian post was about him and Anya riding the waves, very summer appropriate. But now, they have put their bathing suits aside to look prim and proper and attend the ball of the season. I just finished reading a cutesy book titled "Flunked" that takes place in Enchantasia and its all about villains and thieves trying to reform themselves. It's a great twist on the princesses, villains and what happened after the happily ever after was said and done. The main characters, who is a brunette and prince with purple eye, inspired my coloring of Ian and Anya. My prince doesn't have purple eyes but everything else around him is, so that counts :) I hope this inspires you to get crafty. Thanks for stopping by.

Riding The Waves




Happy Monday! I'm here today to kick off a new Greeting Farm Series that is happening over at Quick Creations. Noelle is promoting the greeting farm characters and my character is Ian, so for the next few QC posts, its going to be all about him with some Anya thrown in the mix.

What better way to start off this series than with a very summery shaker card ;) Ian is riding the waves and enjoying life. I popped him into the shaker card portion so when the card is moved around, he'll look like he's out there surfing. hehe. I hope this inspires you to get crafty or get out there and ride your own waves. Thanks for stopping by.

Summer Fun in the Sun



Hello and Happy Monday! Summer is in full swing, but for the past few days we have had weird weather. We've had rain (much needed), horrible humidity and and unpleasant 90+ degree temps but spending time at the beach has helped. So with that said, here's another summer theme creation for you :) Just a few more to go, lol.

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring a C.C. Design image on my card today. I used this bright and super cute doodlebug paper to bring fun in the sun look. She looks like she's ready for a stroll on the boardwalk followed by a day at the beach :)  My supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a sale!

Now its your turn to go have some fun in the sun!!

Sending Sunny Thoughts



Hello and Happy Monday! Since summer is here, I thought i would continue with the summer theme creations - watch out, more will follow ;) 

Today is my day over on the Quick Creations blog/shop. I'm featuring a Pollycraft image on my card today. Since the treat of the season is ice cream, I wanted to use these cone/popsicle papers that are so cute and look great for this cutie that is having a great day at the beach.  Ahhh the beach, the place to be to hide from the recent humid temps. 
Most of my supplies can be found at the Quick Creations shop. Make sure you take a look around as Noelle is currently having a Summer Sale. Happy Shopping!
