Welcome Home & Crafting Happiness Challenge #1

New challenge blog!
No design team for this one. Just me, and Monday weekly challenges.
I'm using a free inlinkz account, so entries are limited to 50.
If I find we reach that limit before the week is over,
we'll work something out for that. Maybe at that time limit entries to one or something.
Hope you'll bookmark the site, and come play along.

Crafting Happiness Challenge #1

Create a 3D card and / or Decorative Envelope with Liner

Friends of our's from our Alaska life recently moved to the lower 48 down to Texas. Woo-Hoo! Not close to South Carolina, but a whole lot closer than it is to Alaska. Here's a Welcome Home card we mailed to them this month using a Lori Whitlock box card style card.


This looks a little intimidating, but it was easy as pie to assemble.


Rellections & Cricut cardstock
Some pieces adhered with foam tape for dimension

I didn't re-size the cut file when I opened it in the Silhouette Design software, and found I didn't have an envelope quite big enough for it. No problem! I made one with my Envelope Punch Board. I love that thing. I need to use it more often. I also made a little envelope liner with some pretty pattern paer just for kicks and grins.

I used a metal die to cut out a rounded cornered rectangle to adhered to the back for our message, and a stamp, Welcome Home, from Cardz TV Stamps, Simply Said set. I'm so sorry I forgot to take a photo of that before we wrote on it and all signed it.


This took no time at all to create, and I love how it turned out.

Recollections cardstock

Funny story....
A couple weeks ago, I restocked all of my cardstock.
I chose Recollections and ordered it from Amazon.
Since I use a ton of Black and White cardstock,
I ordered 100 sheets of each.
Accidentally, I ordered the 110 lb.
So, I ordered again, this time choosing 100 sheets of each in the 65 lb.
And again, I ordered the wrong thing for the white.
I accidentally ordered the Shimmering white.
Here we go one more time. 
Back to Amazon and ordered 100 sheets of white cardstock 65 lb.
I should be good for white and black for a while. LOL

Side Note: The 110 lb will NOT feed through my printer to use with print and cut images. The Shimmer 65 lb will feed through, and prints well (although seems dull), but the Silhouette Cameo can't recognize the registration marks on the Shimmering White.

Wild West


Cricut cartridge, 3 Birds on Parade

NOTE:  This cut file did NOT come with the bird's nose.
The bandana was suppose to go up to the contour line under his eyes, but for some reason I really wanted part of his nose... ok beak.... showing. So I punched a triangle, sized it down, and added it. He's such a cute cowboy.

PAWS-itively the Best

Hi, friends!
Today's card I'm sharing with you is one of my favorite ones I've made recently. I love the colors and the pattern papers. (Psssttt.... I got some new pattern papers, ribbon, sequins, etc. I'm just tickled pink right now. It's been so long since I've re-stocked my cardstock and pattern papers and embellishments. In fact - over a year since I've done a true re-stocking. Happy dance!)


Isn't he ca-ute?!!
