HIMCR #99 - Father's Day!

Its right around the corner! This was a simple and easy card to whip up.  I pulled out my blue and green washi tape and then tore off random pieces and centered them.  Cut the cute frame from a preview of a new Cricut cartridge that was available on the Cricut Craft Room and printed the sentiment to put behind it.  I added a couple of Martha Stewart pearl buttons and voila! Simple, easy but cute!  Thanks for coming by and be sure to head over to Hiding in My Craft Room to see all the other great creations by our design team! Next week will will be having our big 100th challenge celebration with lots of fun things planned!

HIMCR #98 - Try a New Technique!

This week we played around with the Faux Linen technique.  I have to admit it sounded a bit intimidating until I actually tried it and found that it was easier than I thought.  I really enjoyed it and made several small cards with the technique that I may post another day.

Go over to SplitcoastStampers for the technique tutorial to learn just how easy it is.  Laurie, from Hiding in my Craft Room, has used regular cardstock and found that it worked well so if you don't have glossy cardstock you can still give it a try.  Remember to head back to Hiding in My Craft Room to link us up with your Faux Linen creation!

I used a variety of stamps for this one - the music notes and corner flourish are from Unity Stamp Co. and the bird is from Stampin Up.  I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage photo for the faux linen.  The sentiment is also from Stampin Up.

HIMCR #97 - Super Scraps Saturday!

Its one of my favorite challenges at Hiding in my Craft Room! I dug deep into my scraps for this one.  Do you remember Junkitz?  Yeah, I told you I dug deep!  I used a sketch from Scrapbook Challenges again this week.  I love their sketches!

I cut rectangles with my Cricut and then snipped the corners to create the chevron pattern.  I also used the Cricut to cut the mustache and title.  I love how easy this came together!

HIMCR #96 - Name Your Colors!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!  Glad you joined us to celebrate.  Today you get to name your own colors.  That's right! You get to name your own color combo for this week's challenge.  Be sure to let us know what colors you picked in your post :)

I chose Bazzill colors - Blue Calypso, Quick Sand and Flamingo.  I had a piece of paper from Stampin' Up that had similiar colors with a dash of Chocolate Chip.  I used a sketch from Scrapbook Challenges for my inspiration because it inspired me to pull out my washi tape!

Make sure you head over to Hiding In My Craft Room and hook us up with your creations!
