I’m one ‘HAPPY CAMPER’….

Ah. Summ-ah tiiiiiiime! I am all too excited for some outdoorsy adventures that are coming up! We found an amazing camp ground about 20 minutes away from my house.. We are already planning our first trip up there soon to do some hiking, have lunch, etc. And if I get brave enough.. pitch a tent and stay the night, but.. I am deathly scared of anything wanting to eat me.. and I gotta say, I look pretty tasty. All this white meat aged for 30 years (does that make me more of a ‘jerky?’).. LOL! Bears, mountain lions.. GAH. Life was so much easier when I was a child and would go camping and not even sleep in a tent.. Pssssh.. Give me a sleeping bag and a 3pk of Twinkies and I was SET… yes, Twinkies. I ALWAYS had to have Twinkies when we went camping, lol. But now I am a mom… and as a mom I realize that the world is a scary place with icky creatures lurking around. Maybe I watch too much Animal Planet… I dunno. But I definitely need to warm up to the idea of sleeping in a tent with my babies….. Trying to coax my hubby into buying an RV is not working too well right now… not even with freshly baked cookies. He’s a tough one, that hubby of mine.

What about you all?… are you brave enough to sleep under the stars.. in a tent?… Or send the family off to camp while you go to a spa vacation? lol.

Even if you’re not an outdoorsy type, something tells me you will still want to get your hands on this fantastic new collection from Echo Park, Happy Camper. The colors and patterns and very cool.. And the element stickers?! Umm, hello cute fox!.. The deer?.. i.die. SO CUTE.. even the bear has a little place in my heart. If only all bears were made of paper and just 1.5″ tall.

Seeing the preview of this collection I knew right away I was going to make this tee-pee from SVG Cuts’ Camp Smore kit!  It came out totally cute with the Happy Camper collection! I made a little ‘scene’ for it.. and now it’s the timeline banner for Echo Park’s Facebook page!

Here it is.. I hope you brought goodies for s’mores.. if not. I will leave you for the bears.

I thought to make a little fire, etc, but that was just getting too crazy. But if YOU are the crazy crafter type, have at it! Add a camper, fire.. a live skunk, etc… Maybe a 3pk of Twinkies.. ha!

The tee-pee is actually a little gift box! I am just a bone head and didn’t take a photo of it with the top off, but you can see it HERE on the SVG Cuts website.

There’s that fox!… After my Twinkies I’m sure!

 

OK, friends! I’m off! I have a lot of blog posts I am behind on that I need to get up.. hoping SOON. I’ve been very quiet and busy. I am in the middle of a custody case right now and it’s taking it’s toll on me… the most mentally exhausting and emotional thing I’ve been through, really. I’m not going to spill my details all over my blog though…  It’s almost over with so hopefully I will quickly jump back into my happy crafty self soon.

Take it easy!

Echo Park Happy Go Lucky – Photo Freedom Pages

Whoa. It’s been awhile, huh?

I’ve been busy with life so I haven’t been crafting much at all. But I am back at it now and will have a couple blog posts this week.. starting with this one!

I used the Echo Park Happy Go Lucky Photo Freedom kit for these two pages. I kept this clean and simple and just focused on the pictures. I mean, the whole concept with this style of ‘scrapbooking’ is to be quick and easy, right?… So here’s some quick and easy for ya!

We had a nice little day taking some photos of her in the dress I made.. and as you see, I had to make her American Girl doll one as well.

The butterfly wings pop up for some dimension. Really cute cuts.. I found them in the Silhouette store.

 

Here’s page #2. My favorite part is how I split the balloons sticker betwen two pockets.

And yes.. I will admit she looks kinda scary in the bottom right photo, lol.. But that was her.. gummy wide grin, lol. Grimlin style.

This page has hidden journaliing. I was done with the page and was like, “Crap! I didn’t add any journaling..” lol. So ‘hidden’ worked well for this.

Isn’ this PF theme beautiful though? I LOVE it. I think it’s my favorite PF theme so far.

 

And while you’re here I thought I’d share what’s coming to me VERY soon.. which means you’ll soon be able to get the, too.. Look at this yumminess.

There’s HAPPY CAMPER. I have project ideas spewing outta my brain with this one.. CAN’T WAIT!

There’s also the FANTASTIC HERE & NOW. OMG, peeps.. this is GORGEOUS!!! Can not WAIT to work with this. I am gonna use the crazy outta this!

The colors.. I mean REALLY.

Anyhow, I am looking forward to my DT box (when aren’t I?) and creating some projects to inspire you all (hopefully?..). Which of these two if YOUR favorite?

 

Alrighty, friends.. off ya go. See you again soon.. Sorry to be MIA for a bit. I have a few more goodies to share so check back!

 

OH!.. hold up!.. Who uses BLOG LOVIN’ to follow your favorite blogs? Please follow ME!  Follow my blog with Bloglovin

OK.. I will allow you to depart from my blog now *smiles*

 

It’s a booooat!

Ahoy, crafty friends! Anyone out there enjoying the lovely weather? I have seen some photos of people with snow, so.. don’t start throwing snowballs at me if you’re one of the snowy places, but we’ve been having picture perfect spring weather here! I am loving it! Time for a spray tan so I don’t hurt peoples eyes with the pasty whiteness that grows below my waistline that I call ‘legs’.

Anyhow, the Echo Park team has been working on projects with the new ‘A Perfect Summer’ collection designed by Lori Whitlock.. and it is FAB! Totally gets me in the summertime mood… and craving a margarita. Mmm. I just finished up this totally awesome boat gift box.. This is made with the latest SVG Cuts kit! You can get this set FREE with the code FREEGIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more! CHECK IT OUT and make your own boat!

So, slap on some sunscreen and a life vest (you’ll need it if I’m captain! lol) and come along on a little boat ride… it’s a row boat..  no fancy speed boats over here, lol.

I want at least 20 of those beach ball brads. SO CUTE!

Anchors are everywhere right now.. and as most things I talk about.. I’m loving them! I need one for my bathroom!…. and for that body I have in the closet.

What….?

I meant like.. a faux anchor tattoo or something…

 

This project will sit happily in my craft room to be admired by all who enter it… *back pats*.

 

OK, I have a child to go pick up from the bus stop.. but before I go, another back pat for me because I’m featured at Two Peas today! I am always shocked and surprised when this happens. I see my projects up there and I’m all like, “Who dis crazy cat that copied me.. oh, hell naw!”.. then I realize it’s MINE!

LOL….

Pretty cool, pretty.darn.cool. I also just saw it in their newsletter… coolness to the max, baby!

Go on.. get in line for autographs. Bring your own Sharpie.

OK, see ya’s later!

I hope you’ve enjoyed everything you’ve seen so far. How fun right? Amazing paper and terrific stamps to coordinate? Purty snazzy! PLUS there’s a giveaway!.. Extra snazzy!

Here’s a peek at the brand new EP stamps. Such fun designs!

Let me guess, you want them all? I knew you would!

I created a card using Everyday Eclectic mixed with the oh, SNAP stamp set from Hampton Art. I used the doily and the star to create a background then I washed it out a bit with white ink. I embellished with some stickers, washi tape (from Michaels), and flair from my shop, Paper Play Studio (ENTER HOPSHIPFREE for FREE SHIPPING through Sunday the 28th!)

I just love that camera sticker!

 

GIVEAWAY: For a chance to win either a stamp prize from Hampton  Art or one of three collection kits from Echo Park Paper, please  continue on the blog hop leaving a comment on each blog.

Friday Favorites

Hey all! Welcome to my first Friday Favorites post! This will be a bi-weekly post every Friday showing you some of my current favorites! I even made a cute frame/graphic for it! Gold star sticker for me and my snazzy-ness.

Let’s see what I picked out! (totally typed ‘licked out’ at first, lol.)

 

  • 1). Noteworthy 12X12 Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Paper - WHY? Hello awesome colors, prints, etc. I think this is just a gorgeous piece of paper! The entire collection is fantastic, but this pattern really stands out to me!
  • 2). Road Trip Icons – Chic Tags WHY? The travel theme is fantastic, colors are great.. love the muted tones! Graphics are super cute! Great for cards, scrapbooking and ‘project Life’ type work!
  • 3). Charcoal Sketchbook Snippets Printed Chipboard Thickers WHY? I just like the ‘sketchy’ look of these. Think they would go well with a LOT of lines! I picked up three packs myself! One to use, one to hoard, and one to lose in my mess of a craft room.
  • 4). Doodlebug Ditto Dots Washi Tape WHY? Color, color, and more COLOR! Throw some dots in the mix and it can’t get much better. Unless it came with coffee… and chocolate… and a cute persian kitten.
  • 5). Fiskars Stamp Press WHY? I recently discovered this and I am not sure how I stamped without one before… oh, that’s right. I did stamp just fine.. just looked like a toddler did it.. This helps with using multiple cling stamps at once and really helps me get  nice even pressure. You need this if you stamp!
  • 6). EP Happy Go lucky WHY? The color palette alone is drop dead gorgeous! And the element stickers are rockin’. Great for spring! *high five* (Look for an upcoming DT project from me with this collection!)

 

So, how’s that for eye-candy?… Do you like the idea of the ‘Friday Favorites’ post?… I do. What are YOUR favorite things out right now? Link ‘em up.. I might miss something awesome out there..

Have a great weekend!

A chick and a winner!

That blog title Sounds like a weird children’s book.. lol

So, I have a quick blog post today to announce the winner of the Echo Park kit from the blog hop! As always, we had a great turn-out and we are so glad you all joined us this month! I also have a cute ‘one piece’ chick box to share!

First up.. the box. Because it’s so darn cute! This little guy was created with SVG Cuts’ new kit of the week, ‘Egg Hunt’. This is this weeks FREE GIFT with your purchase of $9.98 or more. Use offer code FREEGIFT at checkout. GET IT HERE! Includes a lifetime warranty of happiness and the satisfaction of knowing you can always win over your friends and family with your amazing craft skills thanks to SVG Cuts… and the dirty looks from the other ‘room moms’ because you’re more awesome than they are is an added bonus!

 

Now that I’ve thrown my sales pitch at you.. here’s the little chick. His name is Gus.

Gus does’t normally have a bow on him… or feet (which I added from THIS kit) He’s cute without the bow.. BUT.. put one on him and shy little Gus quickly turns into overly confident ‘Gustavo’..

Jeez.. please excuse Gustavo.

Ya put a bow-tie on a chick and he gets all impudent ‘n stuff.

This little guy..

“What’s that, Gus?.. er.. ‘Gustavo’ ”…

“You’re not a little guy?…

“You’ll peck my eyes out!?”

 

Um.. Sooo.. this big ‘ol tough guy with feathers of steel was created with Doodlebug Designs goodies! I used the orange and yellow ‘petite prints’ basics. The black mini brads were perfect sized ‘eyes’. The bow-tie is a FREE FILE and cut with a blue polka dot pattern from ‘Hello Spring’. Even the twine for his little fluff is from Doodlebug!

“Hush, Gustavo!.. Be glad I didn’t give you a comb-over!….. perhaps a mullet?..”

In case you didn’t hear Gustavo, he was asking why I didn’t give him a Justin Beiber hairstyle. ‘Gustavo Fever’ just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

 

OK.. enough with that chicken nugget!!

“You heard what I said, GUS!… that’s right, NUGGET” 

 

Time for my Echo Park blog hop WINNER!

KAYLA FOISTER who said, “ I am a huge Echo Park fan and I just started doing Project LIfe style scrapbooking so I am super happy with their photo freedom lines! I have the Today’s Story Collection and I love it! Thanks for sharing your pages!”

Well, well.. look who it is.. I’ve been expecting you! Yes, really!! Did you bring me coffee? You DID?! Awesome.

Here we are, another round of a fabulous design team blog hop with the Carta Bella girls! I hope you’ve been inspired and have loved the projects you’ve seen so far!

Today I have a vacation photo box to share. This was super quick and fun to create. I used the AMAZING ‘Well Traveled’ collection for this. This collection has got to be one of the best travel lines I’ve seen! I love the colors and vintage feel to the graphics. To create this I used a Lori Whitlock cutting file which you can find HERE.

Purty darn cool! And totally useful! You can make several ‘themes’ to store extra photos that may not make it to scrapbook albums and such. Perfect!

I am pretty much in love with this camera die cut. I got the shape in the Silhouette store. Added the ‘New York’ sticker with an Epiphany Crafts epoxy over it to create a ‘lens’. Then I added on some tiny brads and gray cord to make a camera strap. Um, yeah. Hello awesome idea! So happy to have met you!  You should come around more often!

*high five* for scrumptious embellies! I am so into brads right now. I think I might just start calling my husband Brad. Yeah. That’ll work.

Did’ja know Carta Bella’s ‘Well Traveled’ collection has WASHI TAPE! I added a little taste of it here and there to my box. Those cool roller stamps (arrows and cameras) are from Glitz Design. Really neat and I am glad I snagged them!

 

Alrighty, now for my BONUS giveaway. I am giving away a Well Traveled 6×6 paper pad, layered stickers, AND a pack of three washi tapes! I will chose a winner from my blog comments AND Facebook page.

This one shows one of our many fun outdoor summer evenings! We love hanging out grillings and letting the kids run through the sprinklers!
The next Photo Freedom page is a simple page all about DISNEY! This was our Disney trip last spring! Awww.. makes me want to go back! I used the tall 6×12 pocket to show off several mini photos. (MINNIE photos?.. lol)
