Look to the skies!

It's Wonderful Wednesday and that means another "anything goes" challenge.

My friend asked me to make a card for her dad for his birthday.  The only thing she gave me to go on is that he was in the Air Force and that he has a blonde Yorkie dog that he takes EVERYWHERE with him.  Not a lot to go on there... but..... I knew I had the PERFECT stamp set to make the card... I used..... "Sky's the Limit!"




















I Just love how this one turned out.  I had that sweet little airplane charm and the cool bakers twine to add, along with all of those fun clouds! I used a die to cut out the image and of course I used a ton of pop dots (I really should buy stock in a pop dot company).

Ok, so I hope that this inspires you.... go forth and craft you wonderful people! Tootles!

Wait... NOT a card?


Every month there is a Krafty Scrappy challenge that is "anything but a card." We all know that I have a lot of trouble doing this.... like A LOT! I mean, I make cards, that 's what I do. So when you tell me to make something that 's not a card... I instantly question our friendship...... but....

Ok, so my second love, is my planner! Yeah I'm one of "those" people. I love the tangible.  I don't put dates and appointments and stuff like that in my phone, I like to have it on paper. .....DUHHHHH Jammie, you dork (yeah I call myself names), make a darn planner layout! Sheesh! 

Ok, so I used distress inks and a sponge with a stencil to make the could background.  I stamped the trolls on coloring card stock and colored them up all bright and fun to go with the colouds. I added some stickers and Washi tape, this is obviously BEFORE i wrote in everything that I have to do this week. But you get the idea! 

Here's the deets on the challenge:
1. Create ANY scrap page, Project Life Layout or pocket page cards, altered item, etc. JUST NOT A CARD!
2. MUST be a NEW creation (created on or after this post date)
3. MUST use Kraftin Kimmie stamps to be entered in to the drawing.
4. You have a month to play, enter AS MANY TIMES as you'd like!
5. PRIZES?!? Of course there are prizes!! Once we've reached 5 entries, we draw a random winner (winner will be drawn at the close of the challenge)!!
6. You have until Monday, September 25th @ 12:00 pm Eastern to get your entries in.
7. Be sure to also share your creations on our Krafty Friends FB page so we can all drool and OOHHHH and AHHHHH!

So, yeah, it's NOT a card! Hooray for me! Now let's see what ya got! Make something  other than a card and enter the challenge! I can't wait to see what you make!  Tootles!

Use a what?!?!?!!?

Ok, we all know that Saturday Challenges at KKS mean a "themed challenge." It's fun, it gets you creative, makes ya think...... but when I read that I had to "use a doily" on my card I thought, "what the heck?!?!?"

Ok, so I scoured my house, craft stashes, asked a few friends, went to the craft store (twice) (both times I got a lot of other things, then got home and realized that I forgot to look for doilies) and still had no doilies.  What the heck is a girl to do?  OOOOHHHHHH!!! IDEA!!!!!

Ya see what I did there? I used my Cricut machine to cut a "doily" into a piece of acitate! Oh yeah! I colored up Alice in Wonderland all Halloween style and fussy cut her, because I'm pretty sure that fussy cutting is my new form of therapy. 

Ok, so I was a little bit of a rebel yet again, I'm sure that doesn't surprise any of you at all. But I couldn't find a real doily and this was a creative way to still be able to play along.  I hope that you can use this as inspiration and play along in the challenge with us this week!  Have a great weekend... Tootles!

Who's ready for a Comeback????

Oh yeah, Oh yeah, Happy dance time! It's Krafty Komeback day! Woohoo! .....and the lucky stamp is........ drumroll please..... WITCHY-POO!!!!!
Ok, So I didn't have Witchy-Poo, so when I found out that she was the Krafty Komeback I was elated! She is so adorable! Here's my card.....
Mindy Eggen taught me how to make a could background with Distress Inks, so I used the ones in the photo and got with it! I stamped the sentiment directly not he background and tied a ribbon around it.  I used pop dots to add some detention to the card, and I colored little witchy poo here with acid green skin just like Wizard of Oz! He he he! 

Ok, scoop up little miss Witchy-poo while you can and get to crafting just in time for All Hallows Eve! Hooray! Have a wonderful Friday, see ya here tomorrow for a Saturday Challenge! Tootles!

A Sweet Little Zombie

Welcome to Wednesday, ain't it grand?  I'm so glad that this week is half way over! ha ha ha! Seriously though, I'm just ready to lock myself int he Room of Requirement and have a little me time.

I think that my mood was a little dark when I sat down to make this card.... because our sweet little Rosie Fairy has taken a turn to the dark side.....
I found this scrap of vivid damask print paper and used it as my inspiration for this card.  I figured with Halloween just around the corner, that this little fairy could dawn some grey skin and be thinking of sinister things. I added a few flowers because, I mean, she IS a fairy after all. I stamped the sentiment directly on a little wooden sign that I've had in my crafty stash for years.

I hope that this little card inspires you to play along with us this Wednesday, remember it's always "anything goes." make something fun and spooky and just have a good time. I know I feel better now after creating something a little "different." Can't wait to see what you make! Tootles!

Just Chillin' with my Gnomies

Ok, it's Saturday, and that means a themed challenge at KKS, this week's theme??????? A SHAPED CARD!!! Gasp!
Oh the horror! I SUCK at shaped cards... I mean, square is a shape right? How about a rectangle? Well crap..... what am I supposed to do???? Why, God, WHYYYYYY?????
I did what any self respecting crafter would do in this horrible predicament..... I grabbed a cup of coffee and went straight to Pinterest.... after deciding on a workout routine, that I was going to eat only healthy food, I was re-doing my laundry room, oh and that dessert is totally happening.... oh yeah, a shaped card.... sigh..... searching, searching...... WOAH! Call off the Dogs, the search is over!

Behold....... a "shaped" card:
Yeah, yeh, yaaaahhhh.... I know, it's not really a shaped card.... but I'm going to say that this qualifies! I mean, come on! I used the incredibly cute Whimsical Gnomes set and colored them all in with my Copic markers of course. The papers are all from Doodlebug, and the felt trees are from recollections. 


I really hope you like my "card" and that it inspires you to play along.  You can be a rebel like me, and make a "shaped" card and I totally can't wait to see what you come up with! You will have until August 25th at 11:55 pm EST to get your entries in! Tootles! 

Snow Days!

It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!! As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie S...
