Great Big Thanks for CCC09

Hi Crafty Friends!  It's that time again…time for another fun sketch from Creative Challenge Club!  It's CCC09.  I had a lot of fun with it even though I kept things simple.

Here's sketch CCC09.

Here's my card.

For this card, I went to my go-to color--Crushed Curry.  Any surprises?


I was also dying to play with my new Oh My Goodies Stamp Set.  It's been on my Wish List since the new Catalog went live back in June, but it kept getting knocked off for other pressing items.  So now that it's finally here, I had to whip it out for this challenge.


The weather in the San Francisco Bay Area where we live was been a bit cold and dreary last week, so I needed to bring out the sun in my card.  Thanks to my Color Coach, this bright bit of sunshine was just what the doctor ordered.  


I hope you like this card and will play along with us.  Besides, you can win a $10 shopping spree if you do!

Well, that's all for today, folks.  You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Documented This & That: Life is Too Short for Boring Hair

Hi Crafty Friends!  Have you ever been bored with your look and wanted to spice things up a bit?  Well, I was bored with my hair, not to mention that it was dry (I couldn't find anything to quench its thirst) and breaking too.  I simply couldn't take it anymore!

So a few months ago, I started searching and pinning all things cute in the hair department--short cuts, Pixie cuts, medium lengths--to see what I might do with it.  


The ones that I really liked I would share with my fiancĂ©.  He'd say yea or nay, but he always ended with, "I like your hair the way it is."  That was fine and dandy, but he didn't have to deal with it.  I knew he meant well, but something had to be done.


When I finally made up my mind to cut it, I didn't tell anyone.  NO. ONE.  I didn't share because I didn't want to hear anyone else's opinion on the matter, and I didn't want to have to explain myself if I chickened out at the last minute. 


When I made the appointment, that was it.  I was committed.  I also have to give credit to a simply stated pin that I pinned to my Words of Wisdom Pinterest board several weeks ago:  "Life it too short to have boring hair."  Those words kept me on my path.


I had to cut it pretty short in order to nix the damage, and Nia Long's look above inspired my cut.  Mine is a little bit shorter than hers, but no worries…it will grow.  


I still can't believe I did, but I'm so happy that I did!  It will be an adventure to see what I do next.  Should you too need a little hair-spiration, you can check out my Good Hair Pinterest board to see what your next cut or style might be.

Well, that's all for today, folks.  You will find all of the products I used to create this spread below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links to go right to that item. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend and happy crafting!

Lisa's Holiday Catalog Haul

Hi Crafty Friends!  Happy Hump Day!  I can't stay long…sigh.  I just thought I would drop in to let you all know that my Holiday Catalog goodies have arrived…the first batch at least.  For now, I've got enough to get started on some holiday cards and Design Team projects.  I can't wait to play!

You can't see it all in the photograph below, but there are some great Framelits (Stampin' Up! really outdid themselves this year) and Designer Series Paper in the bottom of the box.  You'll just have to tune in to see how I put all of this wonderful stuff together :)


For this order, I even took advantage of the Big Shot promotion Stampin' Up! is offering.  Several months ago, my girlfriend Traci traded me my Big Shot for a gorgeous purse she had just gotten, so it was time to get another one.  

I bought the Big Shot and got the Bright Beautiful Stars Bundle valued at $50.75 for FREE!  The stamp set is one of our new Holiday Catalog products, so you can get a little sneak peek.


Besides, how could I pass up our awesome Big Shot deal…purchase a Big Shot and get a stamp set AND Framelits for free?!  I'm not crazy!!!  Well, crazy for crafting supplies.  

Just so you know, you can purchase one or as many of the Big Shot Bundles as you like, especially if you already have a Big Shot or similar die cutting machine.  No limits!  I hope you will take advantage of these exclusive bundles and the 15% savings (already included in the price).

If you are one of my customers and you made a product purchase of $35 or more between June and August 10, 2014, be on the lookout for your Holiday Catalog.  I'm mailing them this weekend.  Oooh, the excitement!

Holiday Catalog ordering starts August 28, 2014!  Your Wish List is going to be long…I guarantee!

Well, that's all for today, folks.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Until next time, happy crafting!

Sweet Birthday for CCC08

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!  I hope that you had a nice weekend!  Can you believe it?  It's that time again…time for another fun challenge from Creative Challenge Club!  It's a sketch this time.   

Here's CCC08.

When I saw this sketch, my mind's eye clearly saw my card below.

Here's my card.

For this Sweet Birthday Card, I went right to the Bravo Stamp Set and Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper.


I added some sweet punch art by using the Petite Pennants Builder and Cupcake Builder punches.  The three scoops and the cone are all punched from Confetti Celebration Designer Series Paper.  


Don't you want some ice cream or fro yo now?  I sure do!  


I am delighted with how this card turned out!  It was so fun to play with both old and new products for this challenge.  

Be sure to play along with us over at Creative Challenge Club.  We love seeing your creations!

Well, that's all for today, folks.  You will find all of the products I used to create this card below.  Order what you need by going to my Online Store, or click any of the links to go right to that item.
