Safari Babies Crib Card

Hello, hello, and here we are at another weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to make a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge, life has been a bit hectic and I haven’t been in my Craftroom for over a week 😭, so for this week I am posting a card that I made last month. It was a special request and it was a bit of a challenge in itself, I needed to make a Safari Animal themed baby boy card 🤔 which doesn’t seem too complicated but the only “safari” animal I have is a monkey 🐒, soooooo Scan n Cut to the rescue again, and this is what I came up with.

All the fun is in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.

Retro games pop up- C4C575

This card was actually a double challenge for me LOL. This weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge was to create a card using 2 or more stencils, the only problem is that I don’t own many stencils, I actually only have a few and most of them are OLD. So I decided to make my own stencils. On this card I used mostly retired products, I’ve been asked why I use retired products and…… that’s because that’s what I have. I am not on any company design teams so no freebies for me, and I believe in using what I have, and I can’t go out and buy everything I want (even though I wish I could) So maybe you won’t be able to copy this card completely but I do really hope you find some inspiration in this card in other ways.

Happy Bbbirthday- C4C570

Here’s a card I quickly assembled for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. February 5th is Weatherpersons Day so we had to make a card showing some type of weather. Funny thing is I really had no idea what I was going to, I wasn’t feeling particularly creative this week and as I walked down to my craft room I didn’t even have an idea of what I was going to do. I decided to flip through my embossing folders (which I don’t typically use) and I came across the one, I’ve actually never used it before but I thought it fit the theme just right.

Hello Love-C4C569

I’ve had a busy week so I decided to take an older card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge. This weeks challenge is to use the word “Love“ or to have a heart on our cards. I have used the word love 3 times and I have several hearts. Fun fact this is the first Interactive card I made using Karen Burniston dies, and as you can see by my blog it was only the beginning. Back then I wasn’t doing a blog post so I don’t have as many photos of the progress but I will do my best to explain. I am a firm believer in using what you have, you may not have exactly what I have or maybe can’t even get exactly what I have but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this card as a starting point to create something of your own. I am adding some suggestions for alternate options below.

Happy 22nd Birthday

So my son just turned 22 and I knew I wouldn’t be able to see him on his birthday so I knew I had to make him something extra special. He has been a Star Wars fan since before he can even remember, but I remember. I remember all the light sabres we had around the house (one of every colour), the voice changing masks and all the Lego space ships, there was so much lego. And the movies, on repeat, first on VHS, then on DVD, and finally on Blu Ray. At first I was a little stumped on what I was going to do for a card until he sent me a photo of his baby daughter wearing a Yoda hat 💖 💚 , and then I knew it had to be Star Wars. This is what I came up with.

Who Wants to Build A Snowman-C4C562

Isn’t it funny how one idea turns into another, then another and then poof you have something completely different that what you originally planned, that is exactly how this card started. This weeks challenge was to make a card with a snowman ⛄️ on it, and I originally planned on just using a snowman stamp, 🤔 then I was going to diecut a snowman, then I planned on having a card that had flaps and as you opened it, it would show a different part of the snow man and when 3 flaps were opened I would have a complete snowman….. and then I came up with this. It reminds me of a book I read as a child where you can move the flaps and the characters would change clothes.

Here is what I came up with, and these photos are all taken of the same card.

EDIT if you came here from Facebook but not my page, I was unable to post videos to all the other pages I generally post to (I just posted a picture). There is a video on my My Messy Craft room page. It’s a long clip so it made it to big and took too much time to share.

Happy Birthday Bro LOL

Hahahaha this card makes me laugh, it is the birthday card that I made my little brother (in August 😊) who………. HATES garden gnomes 😂 Ever since he was a child he hated garden gnomes, so being the loving older sister I just had to make him this card for his birthday. My only regret was I had to mail it so I didn’t get to see his reaction 😂 This is my Second Garden Gnome, check HERE if you would like to see my first one.

PAC-MAN scrap book page-C4C550 😀👻👻👻

Sooooo I’m cheating a bit this week. I started a post that I’m not done yet, and I really wanted to add a card to this weeks Crazy4Challenges challenge so I had to dig out an older project and pull together a quick post. This weeks challenge was “to go Retro” and we were to interpret “retro” anyway we wanted. What’s more retro than Pac-Man? I remembered that I made a special scrap book for my nephew (it’s a photo/year growth chart scrapbook) and I made a Pac-Man page to add his 9th birthday photo to and I thought it would fit the theme. The size is 6”x6” so this would also make a good card.

Guess Who Loves You- C4C548

Helllo, and happy weekend. Sorry I have been MIA, but I am here this week with a card for this weeks Crazy4Challenges blog challenge. This weeks challenge is a design challenge so I thought it was a good one to jump back in on. I have been completely strapped for time so I decided to give myself another challenge, and that was to ONLY use products that I already have out from other projects. So everything I used are items that I already had either on my work table or things that weren’t quite put away yet, with the exception of the little stamps for the greeting on the front. (I don’t call it My Messy Craftroom for nothing 😂)

Lol if you look close you can see the owls eyes in the blue basket on the right side 🤦🏻‍♀️

Here is the sketch for this weeks challenge

And here is my card

Giant Pop up Dinosaur Birthday card

Is it still a birthday card if you have to mail it in box 🤔, this is by far the biggest birthday card I EVER made. I didn’t originally plan for it to be this big but one thing led to another and KaBang giant pop up dinosaur. My kids actually told me I was insane 🤦‍♀️ lol. This started off with my thinking about making a 2 ball dragon card. I had seems some pretty impressive dragons and was going to give it a go when I remembered that I had a dinosaur 🦖 skeleton stencil from YEARS ago and I thought hey why make a dragon when I can make a dinosaur and I hadn’t seen a Surprise Pop up Ball Dinosaur yet soooooo my mind was made up.

with this card all the fun is definitely in the reveal, to see this card in action please check out my FACEBOOK page, feel free to join if you would like to share your own crafty creations. You can also see a video of this card on my INSTAGRAM page.
