Catered Crop - Glitter Recipe Challenge

On my way home from work last night, I was thinking about my blog post and all the fun, witty things I had to say, especially about glitter.    I got home, made dinner, cleaned up, took care of my daughter, dog and parrot, threw in a load of laundry and FINALLY sat down to type up my post.    And guess what?   I can’t think of a single fun or witty thing to say.  So, I guess I’ll just get down to business.


The current recipe swap at the Catered Crop is all about glitter.   Show us your beautiful, sparkly creations.  For my project, I covered Thickers alphabet stickers with red glitter.    I kept my card design pretty simple so that the glittery letters could really shine. (Pun intended!)

Linda put together this beautiful board on Pinterest to give us all some glittery inspiration.  We would love to see your glitter project.  You can link up your glitter project and see the recipe details at the Catered Crop.




Do you love glitter? I know some of my crafting friends love it. Or should I say, LOVE it. Personally, I love it on other people’s projects, but hate using it myself. After one little project, I always have a huge mess. And I keep finding glitter everywhere for days. And days. And days. In fact, I see some red glitter twinkling in my key board right now. So, what are your thoughts on glitter? Love it? Hate it? Any tips for working with it?


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

This is such a pretty card, Cheryl! I really like all the white space and love how you did the sentiment. Those glittery letters are so eye catching.
Glitter is definitely a love/hate relationship with me. Love how it looks, but hate working with it. :)

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…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.
