Happy Tuesday!!  Hope your week is going well so far!  We have a great challenge for you today--be sure and head over to the Nacho Blog to play along!

SCS Featured Stamper Challenge!

I was roaming the web this morning, and found myself looking through the challenges on Splitcoast Stampers.  I haven't been on the site in awhile, but found a fun "Featured Stamper" challenge!  To play, you go to the Featured Stamper's gallery and choose a care to CASE!  Here's the card I came up with:

Unscripted Sketches #237

Good morning!!  And welcome to another sketch challenge from Unscripted Sketches!

SK205 US237

I made a fun holder for cash!!!  My son is a freshman in college, and when we asked for a wish list, he said "cash"!!  So, this is what I came up with:


It's tin, measuring 4" x 4", and about 3/4" deep.  I decorated the front with night of naby cardstock, stamped with the Festive Flurry stamp set!  Super simple!!  The letters were cut with my Big Shot, and layered onto the Silver Foil. 

Here are a couple others I made:

for my niece:




and my nephew:



These were fun to make, and hopefully, a fun way to get cash as a gift!  


Sketch Frenzy Friday

Good morning!  And welcome to my last post as a designer for Sketch Frenzy Friday!  It's been a great ride with these ladies, but I felt it was time to move on and give some other great artists a turn! :-)  Be sure to check them out in the coming weeks--lots of new designers coming!

Here's our sketch for today:


I used some fun new stuff from the upcoming Spring/Occasions Catalog!  (coming January 3rd!)

  • Petite Petals Stamp Set (133152 w or 133155 c)
  • Petite Petals Punch (133322)  
  • Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink (126969)
  • Elegant Eggplant Cardstock (105126)
  • Whisper White Cardstock (100730)
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels (119246)


Gift Wrapping!

Now that all my gifts have been given, I can share with you some fun wrapping I did!!  These gift bags are for my neighbors:


I used the Festive Flurry and Joy to the World Stamp Sets.  Colors are Real Red, Midnight Muse and Marina Mist. 

Here's fun way to recylce:


I simply stamped (same stamps, same colors as the gift bags) the snowflakes onto the brown paper bag!  You know, the one they package the bottles in when you purchase the wine?  I thought I had a nice wine-size gift bag, but I didn't!  So, I came up with this!  I think I like it better!  :-)

Come back on Saturday--I'll share a fun way to give cash for Christmas!!

Be sure to check out my SHOP tomorrow--there will be new items added to the Clearance Rack!!!


Nacho Average Challenge #69

Happy Christmas Eve!!!  I can't believe it's here already!  Even with all the hustle and bustle, I completely love the holiday season--and I get a bit sad when it finally gets here!  I don't want it to end! :-)  I guess I should just enjoy it while it's here!  Hope you're able to spend it with your loved ones!

Today's sketch is fun:


I did my card using My Digital Studio!  


Obviously, I flipped the sketch on it's side, but other than that, I stuck pretty close to it!  Please head on over to the Nacho Blog and check out the rest of the design team's work!  They never cease to amaze me!
