Humor Me Wednesday - Senior Citizens Day

Hi Everyone,

Bugaboo Stamps is now back from vacation and we will be resuming the challenges.

I am so excited, I was asked to stay on permanently with Bugaboo Stamps as part of the Design Team.  I jumped at the opportunity,  I enjoy working with all the images available at the Bugaboo Stamp Store.
So be sure to check back with me to see what I have created.

It's Wednesday so its time to for Humor Me Wednesday, and this week I am celebrating Senior Citizen's Day.  And of course,  I decided to use Stella to honor the "Over the Hill" gang.

I am featuring "Stella - Birthday Reaper".

I used the current ongoing Stella Says Sketch Challenge #513, there is still plenty of time to add your creation to this challenge to win 4 free images of your choice.

I now have permanent links to the Bugaboo Store and Challenges on my side bar.  Be sure to sign up at Bugaboo Stamps to receive emails regarding new releases, freebie fridays, and of course our current challenges.

Thanks for stopping by and till next time,

Happy Craftin!

First Day of School

Hi everyone,

I have been taking a little break from my craft room.  I will be back on a weekly basis at the en of the month.  

I have noticed the past few years a great new trend,  taking photo's of your kiddo's on their first day of school with a personalized board.

Here is what I made for my grand daughter's first day at Pre-K 4.

I used a majority of Cricut fonts, with only a few system fonts.  I found a heavy duty piece of chipboard, it must have been in one of my paper packs.  It was extremely sturdy.  I added a piece of black card stock on top.  Then I used Oracle 631, since it has a flat finish and applied all my letters.

I could have used the writing feature, but I was crunched for time and cut everything out.  Next year I am going to try using stencils, so I can chalk in some of the wording.  I am going to try out a few techniques before then.

Till next time,

Happy Craftin!
