Scrappy Moms Stamps April Release

Welcome to the Scrappy Moms Stamps April Release Day!  We have 2 new stamp sets to share with you today:  More Mini Messages and Walking on Sunshine.  These stamps sets have a huge variety of sentiments and are perfect for all kinds of projects.  Today I have a baby card to share.  My card was created using the KaDoodle Bug Designs Eggie Buddies Hamster, I used the Peachy Keen Critter Faces stamps for his adorable face.  The hamster was popped up on foam dots for dimension.  I added a simple button with a Trendy Twine bow in Cotton Candy.  The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag from the newly released More Mini Messages stamp set.
Here's a closer look at both of the new stamps sets, available for purchase here
Please stop by and visit our April guest designer Gloria from Girlia's Cards.  Remember to check back next week for more projects created with these fabulous new stamp sets.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

With a Cherry On Top Layout

Today I have a fun layout to share which was created using the With a Cherry On Top cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  When I saw this file I knew I had to create a layout with the cute bear and his pile of ice cream.  I used a doily behind the bear which was left over from another project.
A bit of Cranberry Trendy was added to the cherries on the title.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Sassy Pants stamp set.  Some doodling with my white gel pen was the finishing touch on my layout.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Love Pillow

Recently I had the amazing opportunity to be one of the Cricut Explore Air Demonstrators at a couple of Michaels stores in my region.  I showcased the new teal Explore Air which was exclusive to Michaels stores.  This version of the Explore Air includes Lia Griffith content.  I'm a huge fan of the Explore so this opportunity was a perfect fit for me.  I wanted to share one of the projects I created for my demonstration table.
I took a simple coral colored throw pillow and cut out the "Love" from the Lia Griffith content in Design Space.  The words were cut with Cricut's gold heat transfer vinyl.  I cut the words to fit a 12x12 mat and then ironed them onto the pillow.  I just love the way the gold pops against the coral pillow.  This was such a fun and easy project to create and was definitely a crowd favorite at the demonstrations.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  The Trendy Twine design team has a special post to share to wish our fans a Happy Easter!  For my project I created an Easter card using the Easter Seasonal cartridge.  I saw a project using these cuts on the Cricut website and recreated it for a card.
The egg was embossed with the Anna Griffin Treillage embossing folder and the base of the card was embossed with the Cuttlebug Heritage embossing folder.  Posy Trendy Twine was used for the pom pom bunny tail, the bow and behind the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Subway Sentiments Holiday stamp set and was masked off.
Remember to stop by the Trendy Twine blog to check out all of the Easter cards created by the design team.  You can pick up this gorgeous twine in the store. Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Easter!

You Rock Tag

Today is the beginning of a new challenge on the KaDoodle Bug Challenges Facebook group which I am hosting.  The bi-weekly challenge run from April 3rd to April 16th.  The challenge is to use a tag on your project.  Your project can be added to a tag or you can simply add any type of tag to your project, however must include a KBD cutting file.  To kick things off I created a tag project using the Cute Little Dino cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The tag was cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge.
I embossed the dinosaur with the Darice Reptile embossing folder and added some torn paper on the bottom of the tag to represent dirt. The grass scraps were left over from another project.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set.  Some Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my tag.
I hope you will come on over to the KBD Challenges Facebook group to join our tag challenge.  You can win a free cutting file. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Fishing You a Happy Birthday

I wanted to share a quick card I made for my little niece who is turning 3 today.  Every year I make her a fun card for her birthday.  I used the Create A Critter cartridge for the jelly fish and stamped the face with the Erkle and Merkle Peachy Keen Face stamps.  The jelly fish is popped up on foam dots and was added to the chevron mat which was cut with a Spellbinders die.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms newly released Zodiac Cuties stamp set.  I adhered the sentiment to some Grape Fizz Trendy Twine.
Here's a closer peek at the newly released stamp set:
