My first Stick Pin Swap for "Life on the Scrap Beach"

I join my first "stick pin swap" over at Life on the Scrap Beach this month, I had so much fun making these pins and just as much fun making the heart tag.
I have a video showing the stick pins and sharing how I made the heart tag. Enjoy!

A close up look at the pins and rose.

I made 5 tags with three pins each and will receive 5 different tags and pins back... I'm so excited to see what others make and get more creative ideas. I'll share them when I get my package in the mail.
Thank you for stopping by today!

Tag Bag Swap for Your Paper Pantry

Hi everyone,
I joined Your Paper Pantry this month because I love the idea of swapping and sharing with others, I'm participating in my first swap this week; a tag bag swap. I'm to make 4 tags useing any shape along with the theme being Winter.
I really had fun making this tag and using a few cricut cuts that I hadn't used before.
Here's the tag I made, along with a video with all the details and dimensions of the Cricut cut images.

The only difference in these photos and the video is that I used the "Swiss Dots" cuttlebug folder on the ice skates, the video shows using the "D'vine" Swirl cuttlebug folder. I like both of them.
Thanks for visiting today.
If you have any questions just ask, I'll be glad to answer.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge & EAD Designs Stickers

Hello, it's another Fantabulous Monday... with a Fantabulous Cricut challenge
Challenge theme- Snow Fun
Use a snowflake or snowman on you project

I really wish we had some beautiful snow here, because I love snow so I will just have to resort to adding snowflakes on my projects, that will b fun :)

This weeks sponsor at FCCB is E.A.D. Designs
Vinyl Lettering and Wall Art is one of the Hottest Trends.

E.A.D DESIGNS allows you to change the look of any room in just a few minutes. Their Products can be used on more than just walls and on many surfaces.

I got to play with EAD Ice Skating Fun Stickerz they can be found -HERE this is a super cute sheet of stickers with 4 ice skating kids, 2 cups of cocoa, a tree, 3 phrases and several snowflakes.
My box is made using the Tags Bags Boxes and More cricut cartridge with the window. In place of the window I added an thin piece of acetate (plastic) and added three ice skating kids with snowflakes all around. Then added the sticker phrase "Winter Wonderland" on the box lid.
For my bow collage I used Prairie Bird Boutique wrinkled ribbon, the snowflake was cut out using the Joys of the Season Cricut cartridge in white cardstock the I added pearl embossing powder to give it a beautiful pearly shine. The blue snowflake was an old punch I had, I also embossed with the pearl powder. I added a half pearl purchased from SACrafters.
Remember to check out more projects made by the Fantabulous design team -HERE
Feel free to join the "Snow Fun" challenge too!

Thank you to all who linked up and shared your blog with us, I love being inspired by you!

Now for my news---
After many hours of thought and consideration I have made the difficult decision to not continue making new stamp sets for Robin's Creative Cottage.
I'm glad that I've had the chance to try, and have truly loved the experience of designing and working with wonderful people through the process of making clear stamps.
You know I will continue to create and post to my blog, and I would love the opportunity to possibly design for another company, and will be looking to join other design teams, and just having fun in this wonderful world of blog land.

Speaking of design teams... I have had an amazing design team that created wonderfully with my two stamp sets, and I want to thank them so much for the time they've shared creating for me.
Today is the last day my design team will share a few projects with you. I asked them to share a project using "snowflakes"
Click on their name to be taken to their blogs for more info about their projects.
I love the script words on the snowflakes, such a cute snowman
phrase from snowman's prayer stamp set
Love the multicolor snowflakes paper, and the pearls and sparkle.
phrase from snowman's prayer stamp set
Such adorable little snowflakes, they just make me smile.

phrase from snowman's prayer stamp set

I'm so thankful to all of my blog friends for the amazing encouragement that you've given me on this "short, but sweet" journey, your support has meant so much to me. Thank you, thank you!
