Hi Again!

Remember me? 😉

I’ve always wanted to join in on a Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge, but the timing has never worked out. This weekend is my crafty retreat with friends though so I have “plenty” of time.

I choose this option to play with first. I love the minty blues with the pops of purple and pink.


Card for Papertrey Challenge by Crafting{without}Kids


I used the Blueberry Sky for the base and some new paper I just got from Pretty Little Studios Nature Walk collection. I found this great sequin ribbon in my pile of things-I-need-to-use-that-I’ve-had-forever. The stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is from Think Big Favorites #3 and the leaves are from Doodlie Doo.

Last post for a couple hours. Time to go back to making things! Enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop!

Welcome to the my little corner of the Pretty Pink Posh Shaker Card Blog Hop!


This is my first attempt at a shaker card and I will admit to a lot of false starts, middles and even ends! I was working on my card at a crop and I’m sure that didn’t help as I was distracted with door prizes, coerced by candy and sidetracked by shiny things.

But here he is in all his shakery glory!

Isn’t he cute? I think he looks pretty dang smart in his spring hat. The stamps are all from Lawn Fawn. The deer and the sentiment are from Into the Woods and the hat is from Hats Off to You. I LOVE that set! You can make any image perfect for any occasion just by changing out the hat. The sequins are Lawn Fawn too, called Let’s Polka.

I also got to play with my new Tim Holtz Mini Distress inks and the new mini foam blending tool to create my sky and shade the rolling hills. I already own all of the inks (of course), so I didn’t think I would buy these. But after my first trip to a crop, I can say that having a “travel set” is a must. I’m going to go and buy the rest of them ASAP (and you should too). 🙂

On to another blog! Hop on!
