Over the Edge Bugaboo Girl

I wanted to play around  with some new ideas for my Cricut Explore and Digital stamps so I knocked up this quickie little over the edge card.  The base idea which I  am sharing here has so many uses..  regular card, note card, gift card and money holder.

Because of the way I made it a short fold card you could easily add a sentiment/greeting down the inside edge.. like “Hey Girl”  or similar for a casual hi, hello, hey there… to a gal pal.  This image is Casual Girl, and I mirrored my image for this project.

This particular design was a test piece to see how it would  cut on my Cricut Explore and I love the way it came out… so stay tuned throughout the month for a whole bunch of fun new designs and  ideas using some of the Bugaboo stamps  I have in my collection.

This girl is cut on 110lb Index Card and colored with  Chameleon Pens.  I designed this particular one as a single layer and imported it into Cricut Design Space.. but  it’s also a great one to do my 3D layered Images on too.

Hoping to have a creative month with my little guy, get us back on track after a pretty dismal start to this month…

This is  just one small project idea for  this months  Bugaboo Crafty Challenge sponsored by Bugaboos Stamps… I hope you will come join us and share your own Bugaboo Stamps Projects.

I will be compensated for purchases made through affiliate links on this page

April 2017 Crafty Awesomeness Challenge

Well… better late than never right?   I am sooo sorry it took so long to get this months challenge up… but I hope you enjoy the fab projects and …our April Crafty Awesomeness Sponsor.

It’s a double trouble  sponsor month.  Not only do we have our regular monthly Bugaboostamps challenge which starts on the 15th of each month….   this month, to celebrate the opening of the  the new store… We have Bugaboostamps.  So all you Bugaboostamp fans.. you have twice the chance to  show off your projects and win some free stamps.  This is of course an anything goes as usual.

If you haven’t already checked out the new store.. you really should.

Ok .. I am going to pop the previous winner in  a separate post which should be  up hopefully.. tomorrow??? assuming no more personal disasters strike this month. This challenge will run through till the end of the month as always… and of course I will extend the claim time for last months winners due to the late announcement this month.

so  moving on swiftly as I still have to   write my own project post too….. here are the fun projects the  DT team made up using  4 of the newly added Retiring bundles.   We got  4 to play with and all chose one… some of the ladies will be adding in additional projects throughout the month… so be sure to check back and see what they have been up to.

NanaDonna  had  AKV BBQ set and she  made these two cute cards  which you can  find over at her Blog  nanadonnascarddreams













Merrie had a set called  AKV Birthday Set and you can see her  cards over on her blog Made by Merrie














and then we have the  the lovely Ms DeeScraps who had the AKV earth Day set and she  made these  fab cards to share with you all over at DeeScraps Corner

















and lastly.. I will be sharing mine later today… sorry my lil guy is having a rough night and needs some mommy snuggles.  As usual guess who ended up with the religious set…AKV God set.  Now most of you already know.. It’s not “my thing”,  but I did actually have a lot of fun with this set and I love how they turned out.  I had to be the black sheep again and didn’t make cards lol…I made some bookmarks and they will be winging their way to Canada for a little girl  I know to abandon.


Well I hope you enjoy  this challenge again this month, looking forward to seeing  all of the fab projects and  I hope you enjoyed ours 🙂

Discover High Hopes Rubber Stamps

I apologize ENABLER ALERT !!!! haha

This is a company that is totally new to me, I discovered them on Twitter and they have some adorable stamps…. they also have a challenge..and we all know how much we love challenges AND new goodies.  More info  on the challenge and how to get the free digital stamp  so you can join in at the bottom of this post  If you are new to this company too, this is a fab way to  join in and maybe win some of these rubber stamps if you are interested in trying them out.


I was having a quick browse around and thought I would share some of the ones that caught my eye.  As most of you regulars know by now, I have a son who is 5 tomorrow ( Where did time go) and we plan to homeschool.  Creativity is a huge part of our learning process and the lil guy LOVES to craft.  That being said I am always on the lookout for  things for him to use and also things that can be used in “school” projects…. hey no one said education had to be boring… lol.

One of the first things that caught my eye were the backgrounds; these are perfect for both of us, both for card making and  adding visuals to  stories and essays etc  later on as he learns to write his own stories.

I love backgrounds, but I am pretty picky  and most of the ones I have are  digital .. but I love these..

Forest Background T057

Treasure Map T054

Speedy Recovery Background U004

Space Scape U149













and then of course we have fairies ..  sorry Merrie haha.. There are so many cool stamps at this store.. they come in foam mounted and unmounted.  Categories galore… oh dear this could get me in trouble if the little guy sees these…No crafty budget right now.. but if he sees Dragons…. oh my !

 
I will be adding this one into  the  tab above for stamps.. it is currently called DIGIS.. but I think I need to update it to STAMPS, since I  am finding more and more cute stamp companies who do physical stamps…  So expect to see that updated soon.

 


ok I promised you  details on the High Hopes March challenge..so here they are.

For your chance to win 2 FREE High Hopes Stamps.  

You can enter this challenge to win rubber stamps using  the free digital stamp provided, if you do not currently own any High Hopes stamps. There is a link to the freebies, you have two to choose from.  You must use a High Hopes Image.   Check the High Hopes Challenge post for more details and links to the free images.

I hope some of you join in, I think I will have a go at this one.. maybe see if my little guy wants to enter too…. he is a crafting machine lately  LOL
