Well Done!

Hi Krafters,

For some the end of the school year has arrived. However, my children are still eagerly awaiting the start of their summer vacation. As we all know, the end of the school year there are always achievement ceremonies. My friend asked me to make another card for her daughter's BFF. Her favorite colors are lime green and pink...So as with the other card, I tried to incorporate her favorite colors.

This is a standard A2 sized side step card. The can be easily made with a template or measurements. However, I bought the image from the Silhouette Store. I cut embellishments from the DCWV and MMBI papers. To further customize the card, I cut out the letter A for her initial. I added Stickles for a little shimmer. Since there is really no spot to write a personal message, I added an envelope with an additional card inside. That's it!

I hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

Strong and Proud-Practical Scrappers

Happy Memorial Day Krafters!

Today over at Practical Scrappers we are honoring our Armed Forces. As many of you know, I served in the Army for many years. It was an honor and a privilege! It was one of the best times of my life as well as one of the most saddest. I was away from my family for a long time. I can't help but think about people who have been deployed several times and who have been on a tour of duty for years. So before you fire up the grill and spend the day with our friends and families, please take a moment and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country and us!

For the project, I used various Army paper from K&Co and Me & My Big Idea (BDU/Camo print). I decided to fussy cut the Army logo from the designer paper as the focal point. The sentiment and stars are also fussy cut. I used a circle punch to cut out the other images and stamped the flag.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

Good Job

Hi Krafters,

A dear friend of mine asked me to make a card for her daughter who has been on the honor roll three consecutive times. Her favorite colors are purple and gold. Talk about pressure! She wanted something special to present to her daughter after the program. She could have went to the store and bought a card but she entrusted me to be a part of this special day! I wanted to do right by her.....She was very happy with it and so was her daughter :) whew!!

I did not want to over complicate things, so overall I kept it simple. I made an easel card. I used a combination of Grade School and High School by DCWV and Me & My Big Idea School stack. There isn't much purple and gold in any of the stacks so I used plain cardstock and used complimentary colors to keep it in line with the school theme but showcase her favorite colors. Most of the embellishments were fussy cut from the papers. For a playful twist, I used puffy paint to accentuate the chalk and Stickles to the stars.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thank you so much for stopping by, Krafthead~

Practical Scrappers DT- Pretty Cute Girl

Hi Krafters!

Today's project is two-fold. Over at Practical Scrappers it all about making those titles POP! There are some awesome ideas so go check them out! This is also my project for the Lift The Person Before You Challenge at This was lifted from Msnickers2...thank you so much for the inspiration.
For my "think outside the box" title, I used a combo of stickers and hot glue! Yes, you read right; the "girl" part of the title is done with hot glue. I dusted it with perfect pearls. The sticker "pretty cute" is from the Engraver collection by Prima.
The assembly of the layout:
The base layer is just solid black cardstock. I splattered Lindy's Stamp Gang. I do not know the color off hand, but it is in the Winter Wonderland set. Let me just say, this is the best white spray I have used to date! In the past I have used "white" sprays on black and as it dries it gets lost in the paper. Well not this one! As you can see it is a lovely white with the right amount of shimmer!

Going off the lift, I used strips of papers going horizontal and vertically. The papers are Lyric by Prima. I love, love, love this paper!! I fussy cut the collage from the 6x6 stack. The other pattern papers are also cut from the collection. For the doily, I used the English Tea from Cheery Lynn Designs. I added a butterfly (large Martha Stewart) punch out on top.  The flower cluster is a mix of Prima and I Am Roses flowers.
The photo is of one of my daughters. When I bought my camera, I was playing with the settings and I LOVE this picture of her...she is a pretty cute girl :)
I hope you enjoyed today's project! Remember to stop by Practical Scrappers to get more ideas on how to make your titles more fun. Thank you so much for stopping by!  Krafthead~

SOC DT-Wishing You A Wonderful

Happy Sunday Krafters!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! Today, I would like to share a masculine card that can be used for any occasion for the Scraps of Color DT. It is grungy, distressed and I REALLY like how it turned out!
I used Swagger by Fancy Pants. Now I will be the first to admit, I am not a huge fan of FP. I find it hard to work with their papers for some reason. However, I can see myself using every single page of this luscious paper! It screams MAN...mmmmhmmmm!

For some texture, I used stencils by Crate Paper and Prima. Once that was dry (I used my heat tool to speed up the process), I was going to add some white acrylic paint to some of the pattern paper. Side note, do not do this OVER your project while being distracted....yep you guessed it; paint everywhere. BUT it worked out because it added more interest and grunge to the project! Sometimes accidents are good! The arrows were fussy cut from the collection.
I used a sentiment from Close to My Heart. It goes with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. However, I hand cut the sentiment. I used an eyelet to make the occasion. The wonkiness of the eyelet added more distressing to the project. As said, some accidents are good! That's it!!

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Remember to like Scraps of Color on FaceBook! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

Thanks For All Your Encourage"mint"

Hey Krafters,

As you all know, I have been slowly getting back in the crafting groove. I am still celebrating teachers and here is my next installment of appreciation gifts. I know it does not reflect teachers per say, but it is the thought right?

The file came from SVGCuts Playful Parlor set. I love, love, love that set!! I used double sided paper. I inked the edges and made some rolled flowers from the paper collection. I printed the sentiment...that was it. Simple!

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead!

Practical Scrappers DT Project: Fabric

Happy Tuesday Krafters!

Today over at Practical Scrappers, we are having fun with fabric! Fabric can bring interest and texture to a project. For my card, I used the adhesive backed fabric by DCWV. It has been in my stash for well over a year. I can say, it felt good to not hoard. Funny thing is I have no reason why I was hording this particular pack??

Anyway, the project is very straight forward. I used a stamp and die set from Hero Arts/Sizzix for the flowers. I pulled out my unloved colored pencils to color the flowers.

I hope you enjoyed today's project. Don't forget to stop over and see the awesome ways fabric was used on projects! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~

Hi Krafters!

I am starting to feel human again. This week is Teacher's Appreciation week and Sunday is Mother's Day. I have to say, I am not prepared this year. Here is a gift that can be used for either occasion. I have made these before.  However, I wanted to share anyway. They can be done in less than 10 minutes from start to finish! Also, they are good for mass producing!

I always keep hand sanitizers from Bath and Body Works on hand just in case I need a fast gift. I needed something fast since I have not been feeling well. Anywho, originally I used the instructions from Dawn on YT, but I tweaked the measurements to fit my needs. Start with double sided paper. I used some from BoBunny. One side is for the holder and the other side is for layering (this is part of the secret of making this quickly). Follow Dawn's tutorial and you have a cute but quick gift! Yep I was rushing so much, I snapped a quick photo with my cell phone before heading off to bed!

 I am using these as teacher gifts even though they do not reflect. They are fabulous nonetheless! I hope you enjoyed today's project. Thanks for stopping by, Kenya~

Old School Birthday

Hi Krafters,

It has been a while since I posted so I put this card together. It just so happen to be one of my daughter's teacher's birthday too. She really liked it!

For this card, I used some Colorbok paper I had in my stash. I have had this paper for a LONG time! I am trying to use what I have. I fussy cut the flower and the scallops from the collection. The typewriter stamp is from Cloud Nine and the sentiment is Paper Studio.

It is a very simple card, but I hope you enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
