Home Decor with Acrylic Words

4 Apr

Hello again, I am here with another sneak peek at the project I have up over on the Clear Scraps Kit Club blog.

I am trying to do things a little different for a little while by only showing a portion of my project, hoping that any of my followers that are interested in seeing what I’ve made, will visit the company that I have actually made the project for.

I am designing for Clear Scraps, on their Kit Club Team.

Each month they put together such a fabulous kit.  This is the 3rd month  have had and I have been so impressed with the product in each kit.

Head on over to the blog and see what I have created for today’s post.

On the wings of …. a Butterfly!

14 Sep
Anyone else remember that song?  “On the Wings of Love”?
Hardly the inspiration for my card, but the title hit me when I was getting ready to write this post.
On the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge blog our new challenge this week is Borders and Edgers.
I tried to incorporate that theme into my card today.
I am still using my New Release dies and still very much in love with them all.
I love how colorful this is.  I think it fits the saying perfectly.

Shopping Girl’s Dream

7 Sep
This is a little shadow box I got for $1.00 at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section because what ever was in the shadow box had been ripped off.
Knowing I would use it at some point, yep, I bought the silly thing.
I’m so lucky to have all my Cheery Lynn Designs Dies to work with. Here is what my $1.00 “purchase” turned out like.
Improvement, agree?
I took the Reflections Scalloped Circle Die, and used it as a 1/2 circle for the banners at the top.
I framed the sentiment on the bottom with Scalloped Rectangles.
All my papers are by Authentique Paper and the stamp set it called If the Shoe Fits, by Unity Stamp Co.
I think this turned out adorable and I hope you enjoyed my post today.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for Cheery Lynn Designs.
Be sure and check out our Challenge blog.
Our current them is STITCHING.

Wednesday Afternoon Wowzer

5 Sep
 Today is a day I really should have just stayed in bed!
I thought it was Tuesday, and it hit me at some point that it was Wednesday and then I remembered I am the WOWZER girl, and I have NOTHING to show for it. I dropped the kiddos off to school and had every intention to come home and make a QUICK, CLEAN and SIMPLE card and load it up real quick on the blog.  Well that is not so easy for me to do…I get sidetracked as I go!
First, I knew I wanted to use my own nails as my inspiration.  OK, that might be kind of VAIN but so what!  If you knew me, it is rare that I have a vain moment, allow me this one, OK??
To add to my own vain moment, well yes those are my nails…and I made my little design up all on my own…Yep I know…Nails = Just like crafting!  Easy Peasy!!
Here is my card based on my nails!  I am using the fabulous set called, FABULOUS GIRL.
What a fitting title!  Since I’m feeling rather fabulous about the way this card turned out!
All except for my intention of it being clean and simple.
Plus, I  will not go into the gory details of glue malfunctions, sticky tape stubborn backing, hot glue annoying web like strings, craft room mess that allows me to find nothing when I need it….
Nope we won’t talk about any of that at all.
I love working with tiny things like putting a tiny skirt in the stamped dress…
…adding the ruffles to the phrase…
…it’s the little things that make a card unique and a work of art!
I hope you have enjoyed my WOW for the today!
This has been me,  Jeannie,  from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.
Have a great Wednesday, well what’s left of it that is!!!

Why is this caged bird singing?

31 Aug
Did you get my reference to the famous book?
I am still having a ton of fun with dies from the August New Release.
The new dies I have used on the card are Bird Cage, Hummingbird, Celtic Whimsy and Embellishment #2.
Dies that are not from the new release are Scalloped Rectangle’s, and Mini Fanciful Flourish.
I am so impressed with the intricate pattern of the Celtic Whimsy.  It cut easily and is such an impressive pattern.  This is easily one of my new favorites.
I also love the new Bird Cage.  What a gorgeous design.
Have you had a chance to head on over to our Challenge blog?
I just peeked and we are up to 41 entries already!  WOW, it’s not even the weekend yet.
The theme is anything goes.  Remember you do need to use a Cheery Lynn Designs dies in your project/card to qualify, but still anything goes?  What have you got to lose?
Have a great weekend!  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s Cheery Lynn Designs post.

Summer Fun Banner

11 May
Today I have such a fun project for you to try!
I love using the Reflections Dies in their full size, but they are tons of fun when you just use the halves too!
I am using the Scalloped Oval set on this banner.
I used my digital papers from Echo Park, and created lots of bright and colorful layers as my banner base.
The top tiered portion of the banner is made with the Pennant die.
On the individual banner pieces I embellished each letter with the following dies:
For the letters I used the Optimistic Font on top of layers of Scalloped Circles.
I love all the bright and cheery colors in this!
It is always fun for me to think of new ways to use supplies and I am very happy with how this turned out.
Now, moving on, have you checked out our new challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog?
The Challenge this week is Shades of Purple.
I came across and adorable, simple card design and wanted to make this design to show you all.
Here is the card original.
Here is my PURPLE version of the same design.
For this card I used the following dies:
Scalloped Rectangles for the card mats, Black Eyed Susans and Wood Grain Embossing Plates.
Also I used the  Pennant die again because I love that die!
Lots of purple:)
What do you think you can come up with for our challenge?
We’d love to see you link up with us.  Remember there is a $20.00 gift certificate to the lucky winner of the challenge!
