Label Challenge Card

Today is my first official challenge blog post as a Karen Burniston design team member, and I’m so excited to share this card 😊. The challenge this month was “Labels” and I was in a bit of a pickle. I own a LOT of KB dies but I don’t currently own any of the “Labels” dies. I placed an order but was concerned they wouldn’t get to me in time so I reached out to fellow design team member Karen Aicken who lives in the same province as I do and asked if she could die cut a few pieces for me, and not only did she send me what I asked for, she die cut pieces from 3 different Labels sets in black and white. Thank you Karen, without your help I wouldn’t have this lovely card.

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.

Pop’nSwap Santa

*Hello, hello… I’ve been under the weather for the last week and I feel like I’ve been slacking. My Karen Burniston challenges start in August and I’ve started on those, but those are under wraps until the scheduled dates, so I thought that I would share another Christmas in July card. I made this card for my sister and her family a couple of years ago. It was my first Pop n Swap so I hope you all like it.

The next photo is actually 2 photos that I lined up. I was in a hurry to get pictures and didn’t get a great one of the gifts swooping under the tree

…but who’s counting

So my craft room has been packed up for A YEAR!!, with me sneaking a few things out from time to time. Now that I am trying to get my blog back on track, I’ve already had a special request, and I just had to go for it. A lady doesn’t turn 70 everyday, and my crazy craft brain went a little over the top for this one. I lost track of how many hours of die cutting and assembling (I need to find my alphabet stamps lol) but I had a vision and here it is….

And here it is in action 🤩

I’m trying something a little different with this post, I’ve numbered the photos to match the directions that are just below each photo

….and you act like one 2

I am soooo exciting to share this card, I had so much fun making it. It all started with this photo, and the monkey. The monkey had to be blue and yellow and it was for my beautiful grand daughters 2nd birthday, and the rest of it just fell into place as I was making it. It’s funny how that happens some times. I just found the perfect patterned paper and I just happened to have perfectly matching cardstock (from 2 different companies). I bought the little mirrors a while ago and finally had a reason to use them, and posing Jinx the Monkey in all the funny poses actually made me laugh.

As you read the words on each page think of the “Happy Birthday” song. I don’t know if it’s just me but I remember this swap in lyrics from when I was a child

This is why the monkey had to be blue and yellow, it belong to my son when he was three , and now it’s a favourite stuffed friend for this little cutie.
