Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge - CAC

So this time the challenge was to use Create a Critter Cartridge which wasn't too difficult cause it is such a fun cartridge to use, Sara and I whipped up a few cards together last night and here's what we came up with

This was the card I made for a great friend of mine who took half my shift at work the other day so I could get ready for a baby shower I was planning

So we don't have the super cute new scrappy mom stamps that correlate with the critters but we do have stamps by good ol scrappy moms and we used those!!

Sara came up with this cutie for a birthday card for a little boy who is turning one he is having a circus themed birthday party on Sunday

have a great day !!

Think Spring {Handmade Gifts}
Create a Spring-inspired handmade gift using your Peachy Keen Faces!
Gifts can be anything: card sets, treat buckets, takeout boxes, decorative basket,  you decide!
So I (TANYA) had the perfect project for this challenge I hosted a baby shower on Saturday for my new baby niece and when Sara and I plan parties we always make a super cute guest book for people to write well wishes or advice to the new mom and baby so here is one of the books we did with lots of help form peachy keen and their super cute face stamps
The pictures really don't do the book justice and sorry about the glare

Once the book is finished we go back and add pictures from the shower then give it to the new mom!!

Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday

Well we wanted to play along with The Pink Stamper and make some cards using black and any other color.  This was fun cause I love to use black as a back drop it makes everything seem to POP.  The other thing is she has some pretty cute sayings in her stamp sets and they stamp great.  Ok so here is what I did (TANYA)

For theses two cards I was trying to use up some of my embellishments from my sticker drawer which is FULL so these cuties are by K&Company and it was a super cute pack.
 Stamps are by Pink Stamper "Family and Friends" and "Punnylicious"
White card stock was run through my little cuttle bug "divine swirls"
The patterend paper is from a paper stack by DCWV "the pocket full of posies"

SARA made this little stinker

Skunk from create a critter cart

Sunday Bird Day!

Good Morning! Its Sara again! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. The weather has been gorgeous for us here in Northern California and today we are going bird watching! So before we head out to our local green belt to search for birds I thought I would make up a quick card for my Grandma. She turned 82 last year and my family and I planned a party for her that was held at our favorite local park in the Bay Area. It was Tanya and I first time making something for someone with our new Cricut skills! My Grandmother loves birds and actually has two aviaries in her home so we went with a bird themed party. We chose red as our main color and it worked really well with the lush green back ground of the park. I believe we may have made over 20 birds before we made our finale decision on the perfect one, so of course we had tons left over. As I was  looking to see what I had here at home I came across  two birds and thought why not make Grandma a card to remind her of the party.

I hope she likes it!
Here is a picture of most of the things we made for Grandmas Party.
We made the Invites which I cant find a picture of : (
Cupcake toppers & Cake toppers.
A guestbook(which is adorable inside, will add pictures later)
Flower arrangements(Tanya did 12 flower arrangements in tin cans I had saved and put red ribbon around)

Here is the card I made with the retro birds from the party.

Have a great rest of your Sunday!
Peace Out Crafters!!

On my own!

Good Morning! Well Tanya is at work for the next two days, so in her honor I thought I would try to blog at least once! We do most of our crafting at Tanya's house, she has an amazing craft loft that holds all of our wonderful craft supplies and the amazing Cricut! So when she is at work I try and craft in my small office at home. If this is the case then during the week Tanya and I will cut out random pieces from the Cricut and I will bring them home and try and create a card from what I have. Its a fun challenge but because we have been crafting together for the past two years it can be lonely to craft alone. This weekend I made a Valentines card for my three year old! I love the new cartridge we got that has these adorable bugs, they are Simply Charming! hehe I hope you all like it!

Bug is cut from "Simply Charmed" Cartridge
The"I Love You" stamp is from D.O.T.S
The paper is from k.i Memories classic paper pad
Ribbon from JoAnns
Stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps Princess small
Buttons from Stampin Up Craft Store
Stitching done with ZIG black pen

Have a great weekend!
Peace Out Crafrters!
