Try It Tuesday~ Clear Scraps and Echo Park!!

Hi guys!!!
I have some fun stuff to share using Clear Scraps and Echo Park.
 Awesome acrylic and awesome paper:)

All you need is the Arrow mini album by Clear Scraps.  Some super cute
Echo Park and you have what you need to make these Place Seating cards.

 I used a vintage milk cap as my base and a glass marble to stabilize
the house.  Decorated the front and put the names of my grands on each one.
The paper is by Echo Park called Simple Life.  The original blog post on Clear Scraps is here.

After I use them at Thanksgiving I will put them on the Christmas Tree.  
And to think these were created  from this~
Kinda of cool~
and just for fun~

I found these in Illinois, on my trip, a few weeks ago.  I think they are super cute~

and I want to share. So the first six {cause that is my new favorite number:)} people I will send you a sheet of each.  Email me ( address is in the side bar on my blog) with ticket in subject line, with your mailing address. That's it, you will get some:):)
Thanks for stopping by~
 remember go vote for Clear Scraps in the Martha Stewart /American Made contest. You can vote up to 6x's a day or all at once. 

Live simply, a card ~ with Darkroom Door.

Hi guys!!!
Have a cute card using the Photo Stamp/Bicycle by Darkroom Door
 I pulled out my paper scraps, so it will be hard to tell you the paper I used.  Any paper looks good with these stamps:)

I used brown and black ink by Ranger.  I also used the Coffee Stain stamp by Darkroom Door.

When you need just a little something more, this is a great "go to" stamp!  One of my favorites!!!
Coffee Stain by Darkroom Door!! The sentiment is from the Enjoy the Ride set by Darkroom Door.

For more awesome inspiration visit the Blog at Darkroom Door.
Thanks for stopping by~
See ya tomorrow for~

This is just plain cool~

Hi guys!!!
This is just plain cool, so I wanted to share.   Doing what I do, I end up with lot's of projects ( aka~cards, altered items, tags, bags, cute stuff :):) )
My granddaughter had a Fall Festival type event at her school this past weekend and I donated two boxes of my crafty creations, to help raise funds for the school.
My awesome DIL put them in a pretty basket and it went to auction.  Then it went to the live auction:)

and $450.00 later (is what it brought) for the school.   I was so pumped~I had to tell someone and I picked you:)

So, so cool!!!!
I give boxes away of projects, twice a year, so I was so happy the school benefited from
  my crazy crafty obsession:)
Thanks for stopping by~
see ya soon!!!!!

I have a project I made using products from Clear Scraps and I have had  #6 on my mind, so I came up with this~

Try It Tuesday~ A Curtsey Boutique goodbye!!

Hi guys! 
September is my last month designing for The Curtsey Boutique. I have really
enjoyed working with the handmade embellishments!!!!  I want to share several projects that have not been on The Curtsey Boutique Blog yet.

I gave this one away, I think the paper is Authentique.  All the embellishments
are by The Curtsey Boutique.  Title is cut from the Silhouette machine.

This set I used the muslin bags from The Curtsey Boutique and stamped on it.
 A gift tag was added with some trim.  It made a cute gift, holding the stamped cards.
The stamps are by Avocado Arts.
