 I remember when I started coloring digital images and The Paper Shelter
was one of the first companies I purchased from. The images are so amazingly 
crisp and they have amazing backgrounds, they have a lot to offer. Be sure to check them out.

I used the "Cool Student" Digital Image


I colored the image with COPICS. Everything is from my stash.
The paper is DCWV The High School Stack and it's pretty old. When I did a search for it JoAnn.com
showed they still have it in 8"x8" Paper Pad. It really is awesome paper for older kids.

I'm entering this into the following:

Lots of Layers with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!




You know what Wednesday means? It's time for a new challenge over at 
CRAFTY GALS CORNER CHALLENGE BLOG!
"LOTS OF LAYERS"


Let's talk about "Lots of Layers", do you love working with lots of layers
or prefer simplicity? I, myself, am not a layers girl. There are no onions here and if anyone 
is interested, I met Shrek and he doesn't smell like onions. Anyway, I like to keep things 
simple. So this challenge was exactly that for me, a challenge. 

So without further ado, here is my lots of layers. 
Six to be exact.

Created In the Crafting Cave with Lisa Flat Friends Lots of Layers



If you haven't checked out Flat Friends Boutique be sure to. They have some 
really sweet images and I do love the simplicity of them. I know, again, with the simplicity!

Fancy Folds with Clear It Out Challenge Blog




It's time for a new challenge over at 


Let's talk about our fabulous sponsors this week:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/DigitalPaperCraft
scrapbook kits and more. Be sure to check them out!


I used this adorable image called Jingles by DigitalPaperCraft

Here's my first attempt at Fancy Fold. It's cute but it really doesn't scream fancy fold to me. 
So I stepped up my game with the card below. 

TRIPLE EASEL CARD
So for my fancy folds card I started by folding two 8.5"x11" pieces of paper in half  and then with SSS Stitched Rectangle Die Cuts I cut three sizes making sure to leave the fold intact, making a top fold card.
On the top flap of each card I scored across the card in the center (you can see in the photo below). I used the same three die cuts to cut panels out of  Echo Park Birthday Wishes 6x6 papers to cover the 
top and inside of each card. When taping the top panels only tape the bottom half of the paper. To create the pop up on the small card I simply laid the smallest die cut down with my top plate only covering 
half of the die cut and ran it through my BigKick and then scored along the bottom. This created the base of the Triple Easel Card.


 To embellish the card I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut out my image from Digital Paper Craft, the "celebrate you", party hat and confetti pieces using Xpress It Cardstock, pink cardstock and Echo Park Birthday Wishes Paper. The pom on the party hat is Trendy Twine Orangesicle, Strawberry Cupcake and Limeade. Enamel dots are from Michael's dollar bins. Because this card is busy I kept my image simple and colored her with COPICS. No fussy coloring today.
Here's the card lying flat.

Big Top Fun with SVG Attic



Happy Friday everyone! It's my day to share with you over at
SVG Attic Blog. 
Created at In the Crafting Cave with Lisa  Carta Bella Circus Party Favors

"The Ringmaster's Hat". 
 Created at In the Crafting Cave with Lisa  Carta Bella Circus Party Favors

Created at In the Crafting Cave with Lisa  Carta Bella Circus Party Favors
I love this for a Circus themed party favor.
I used my cameo to cut the Uncle Sam's Hat out, assembled 
it using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, and then decorated it. 
Fun and easy! 
So the wheels were turning and I decided to create a party set. 
Next up, popcorn! You have to have it at the Circus, right?
Created at In the Crafting Cave with Lisa  Carta Bella Circus Party Favors
I used SVG Attic's Sweet Shop Popcorn Treat Basket. And to hold a few 
Circus peanuts I used SVG Attic's Sweet Shop Treat Boxes.

Again, I used my Cameo to cut the files out, Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to 
assemble, and a bit of twine around the popcorn basket and the ends of the 
treat box. 


I use PicMonkey Photo Editor on all my photos.
It's fast and easy!
