Doodlebug Design Application

Hey, everyone!  Happy, happy Friday!  I love Fridays!  Reaching the end of the work week is one of the best feelings.

I'm popping in today to share my projects for my Doodlebug Design DT application.  I didn't make the team (sad face), but I did have a lot of fun creating the projects for my application.  Here's what I submitted:

A card: 

A project life spread:

Some Christmas gift tags:

This layout (which I previously shared here):

And this layout (which I previously shared here):

I adore Doodlebug's products - the fun, colorful collections and touch of glitter embellishments fit in perfectly with my style.  In fact, I just refilled my Doodlebug embellishment stash in preparation for this application, so you will see a lot of their products showing up on my work here within the next few weeks.

Thanks for stopping in!

Clique Kits' December Pep Rally

Hey, everyone!!  It's time for the monthly Clique Kits' pep rally.  I loved the December kit so much - I ended up creating 4 layouts, 2 project life spreads and a gift tag...and I still have a ton of stuff left over - that's definitely some bang for the buck!

For this month's pep rally, I went with the "anything goes" theme.  I had a picture of my Granny and I from her 100th birthday party (yes - 100!) that I really wanted to scrap.  The pretty Heidi Swapp floral paper was the perfect pattern to use on my layout:

Seriously.  This kit is AWESOME!!

Here's the full line-up for today's pep rally:

I hope you're able to hop and see all the awesome inspiration.  The CK team and subbies are all so talented!

Happy Mail Monday

Have you heard of the happy mail project?  It's not an active website anymore, but it's still chock-full of happy mail inspiration.  Recently, I've become a tad bit obsessed with  happy mail.  I signed up for Bonita Rose's Happy Mail Swap and sent my very first bit of happy mail last week.  Have a look:

I put all this stuff in a boring yellow shipping envelope...I'm going to have to work on my outer packaging a bit :)  It was so much fun to put together a little package to send someone...and it's another fun way for me to express my creativity...seriously, I'm addicted.

I'm looking for more happy mail "pen pals".  If you're interested, just email me at kraftykat9@gmail.com.

Have a happy Monday!

December Daily 2014

Hey, everyone!  I'm up on the Clique Kits blog today sharing some of my pages for this year's December Daily.  I've never used a kit for my DD before, but I really should have.  It makes the whole process so much easier!!  Here is a look at some of my pages so far this year:

I've been keeping it simple this year and I'm loving the results.  My prep work in November has also made the project much easier to tackle.

How's your holiday album coming along?

The Studio || Childhood Photos Challenge

Good morning, everyone!  Hope you had a nice weekend and that you are ready to jump back in to the work week (for the record, I am not).

There was a new challenge posted at The Studio yesterday.  The challenge: scrap a childhood photo. I don't have any childhood photos on hand, but I do have a whole box of photos from high school, so I used one of those.  I have a photo of myself and my 2 best friends in high school that was taken 10 years ago.  And I paired it with a picture of us that was take just 2 months ago.  I love the comparison!

I hope you can play along with us!

Clique Kits December Challenge

Good morning, everyone!  Happy Saturday!  I'm excited to stop in and share the newest challenge that's up today on the Clique Kits blog.  The twist this month:  go mini.  Make something small, but fun!

Here is my take:

I couldn't resist making a gift tag with the December kit.  There was just too much fun, colorful stuff to work with in the kit, and that stamp from the Sweet Stamp Shop was the icing on the cake!

Entries don't have to be created using a CK kit, so it's really easy for anyone to play along! Up for grabs this month is a prize pack from Creative Retreats and Danielle Young Designs:

Hope you join us for the fun!!
