Just A Scrappin'  Challenge Feb. 28, 2013 Teddy Bears with no brown and using quilling or rolled flowers on LO, Card or project.  I downloaded these cute Teddy Bears for tags.  The tags can be used on a gift or used on a LO.

                                                         1.  I used Art Philosophy to cut the <tag2> at 5 inches out of handmade paper from my stash.
2.  I hand cut the bears from very light weight cardstock from stash.  
 3.  Inked the edges of bears with Palette hybrid inkpads blue and green.
4.  Glued the bears to each tag lining up the tag holes then punched.  From stash found ribbons to string up tags for a package or scrapbook.
 5.  I cut the flowers using font <banner6> key at 2 1/2 inches.  I used a Zot to hold center and curled the rest into the flower shape.  This is regular cardstock from stash.
6.  I used the wire words "happy" and "hugs" for my sentiment using  glue to hold it onto the card.  Usually I sew them down, but I want the other side of the tag plain to add a name to at the time I use it.
7.  I added the flowers centers one gem the other pearl.  Added to card using a Zot medium.

This time our challenge is CAS Cards 4 Kids. (Clean and Simple) cards have many ways to be defined CAS to me means not super complicated or tons of layers or embellishments. You do not have to donate your card(s) after you enter the challenge, but the kids would sure love it if you did.  My card is a Hello Spring with a download picture of a girl holding flower buds, grass under her feet and a butterfly tag.

Just A Scrappin'  Happy Birthday Patti! This challenge is to make a birthday card, LO or project using Patti's favorite color Blue, bling and embossing.  So Fun.

 I did this LO using Cricut cartridge Tie the Knot to cut the embossed <cake> at 5", blackout/shadow at 5" on blue cardstock from stash, and <cake-3> at 5" in Silver Metallic Foil.  For my background I used Best Occasion Metallic paper in blue/gray. That refected  the light in the photos.  Miss Elizabeth's Floral Alphabet stickers in blue on vellum for happy birthday (can't read in photo) and chipboard from stash.  Come join us at Just A Scrappin'

Just A Scrappin'  February 14th  Valentines Day!   Anything goes,  using anything but RED. I dug into my stash and found this gold foil heart, then went looking for something else for Valentines Day  here is what I ended up with.

 I cut using Art Philosophy cartridge <Branch2> layer at 4" in brown/greenish cardstock from my stash,  <heart1> at 1/4"  & 1/2" in different colors of green from stash. Using 3M adhesive glued the Branch from the left edge across the card over the gold foil heart. Then I took the 1/4" hearts and used them as buds, and the 1/2" hearts as leaves.   Next I added the stickers to spell LOVE across some of the buds.  Last added sentiment printed by computer.

Just A Scrappin'  Feb. 7th challenge Love is in the Air.  Use Lots of Hearts.  For my Love is in the Air I did a "in Memories" for the good Valentines Days my husband and I had.  I cut on large heart using Cricut Art Philosophy <heart1>  at 11" Me & My Big Idea 2005 print paper, then a hearts using <heart3> at 4" plain pink, and <heart 3> Layer purple pattern.  I made this on black cardstock, using purple ribbon, bling hearts stickers and other scraps for my stash.  I do not buy new supplies for projects except glue and tape runners.  First I glued on the ribbon to the very bottom, added the main heart, cut his picture to 3" square using Elmer's adhesive squares placed that on the space next to "Memories".  Next the cut hearts and then the stickers.

I like how the "Memories" showed next to his photo and across the middle of the heart. Join us at
