Cherry On Top Customer Blog Hop



I am the last stop on the Cherry On Top blog hop. You should have just come from Emily's blog. Didn't you just love her eye candy? If you are just joining the hop, you can find the blog hop order on Amy's blog.
.
I first heard of the kits from Caffinated Cropper on Carole's blog. I went through the blog hop and was lucky enough to win the Beeez Kneeez mini kit. (You can see a card I made using Beeez Kneeez HERE.) I loved the kit so much that I bought the Cherry on Top kit too. The colors in the kit remind me of the Fourth of July and summer.

When I got an email from Amy earlier this week talking about a customer blog hop, I thought that I wouldn't have any time to get a card together. I was disappointed because I really wanted to dig into the kit and make something. Well today (Thursday afternoon), I found that I had a whole half an hour to myself that I could spend on crafting. I thought that would be the real test of the kit. Can I make something cute with my limited amount of time? I was able to make this card and get my supplies cleaned up in less than 45 minutes. I like the results for being so rushed. What do you think?

Here is a look at the inside.

If you missed any one along the way, you can get a complete list of blog hop participants on Amy's blog. One random poster who leaves a comment on every blog in hop will win a free mini kit. Remember that is how I got hooked on the kits from the Caffinated Cropper.

Thank you for looking!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
