My Favorite Things - WSC381!

Hello!!





Well, after my last post, I got a call from my daughter telling me that she was in labor - 17 days early!! And an hour later, my sweet grandson was born!! So I quick-like-a-bunny changed my flights and winged my way to my daughter and her sweet family! I’ve been loving on my granddaughter and new baby grandson since last Friday, and am enjoying every single minute! Luckily, I had planned far enough in advance to prepare a card for this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  I’d normally add a pic of the sketch, but since I’m posting this from my phone, things aren’t really going as planned. So here’s my project in answer to the sketch:




I used the Paw Prints Die-Namics to take the place of the circle in the sketch and added some die cut hearts from the Tag Builder Blueprints 5 Die-Namics.  The sentiment is from the Critter Condolences Stamp Set and the sentiment strip is from the Stitched Sentiment Strips Die-Namics.

Please click on through to the MFT Challenge Blog to be linked to the other genius takes on this week’s sketch challenge. And while you’re there be sure and link up your own design for the sketch for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher from My Favorite Things ! It’s a random draw, so everyone that plays has a chance to win!

That’s it for me today, friends! I’ll be here in Portland until Thursday and then I’ll be leaving my sweet babies behind for another couple of months! I’ll be sad, but we’ll be back before we know it! Thanks so much for stopping by today - I sure do appreciate it!

My Favorite Things–WSC380!

Hello again!

MFT_SketchChallenge_2017Logo

I promised that I’d be back soon, so here I am to share my take on this week’s Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  When I’m struggling with my creative mojo, I look to a sketch to get it moving again!  The My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketches are some of the best to spark some creative energy in me!  And this week’s sketch did just that!  Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my take on the sketch:

I just adore those funny little monsters from the Monster Sized Stamp Set.  They just make me happy!  I added some fun detail with the Peek-A-Boo Polka Dots Die-Namics and the Jumbo Peek-A-Boo Circle Die-Namics.  My grandson will be turning eight in a few weeks – this will be winging its way to him then!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I’m busy playing with my grandkids in the pool!  But I’ll be back very soon with more stampy goodness!  Until then, I hope you have a great day!!

My Favorite Things–MFT and Friends!

Hello friends!

MFTandFriends

It’s been a few days since I’ve posted!  Our kids and grandkids are here visiting so I’ve bee locked in my craft room trying to get ahead in my deadlines so that I can play in the pool with the kids!  So, I’m quickly popping in today to share the project that I created for a new Creative Team Challenge called MFT & Friends!  It’s our opportunity to share more projects using this month’s new release, and some of our favorite designer friends are joining in on the fun!  My project features the new Cloud Shaker Window & Frame Die-Namics, the new Cloud Shaker Pouches, and the new Rain or Shine Stamp Set.  I paired them with the previously released Distressed Patterns Stamp Set – one of my faves!!

KKL_APR1018-MFT-and-Friends

I tell you what – the new Cloud Shaker Window & Frame Die-Namics and the corresponding Cloud Shaker Pouches make assembling shaker cards such a breeze!!  It all fits together like a glove!  I used the Distressed Patterns Stamp Set to create the rainbow rain.  And the sentiment is from the new Rain or Shine Stamp Set.  Check out those Clear Rain Drops!!  OMG!!  Are they not so fun?!!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Well, hello again!

MFT_SketchChallenge_2017Logo

I haven’t played along with the Wednesday Sketch Challenge in a few weeks, so I was pretty excited to get a chance to play this week!  I love this week’s sketch!

MFT_WSC_379

It’s a good one, right?!!  Here’s my answer to the challenge!

KKL_WSC379-4-4-18

I decided to flip the sketch and make the upper portion into some clouds using the Stitched Cloud Edges Die-Namics.  I used the new Mini Raindrops Stencil and some transparent embossing paste to add some textured raindrops to the Summer Splash Card Base.  The sentiment is from the new Aim for the Clouds Stamp Set, and I die cut it using the Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-Namics.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Hola!

Print

Can you believe it’s FINALLY time for the April Release to go live?!!  If you’ve been enjoying the countdown posts as much as I have, I would imagine that every single new product will be winging their way to you very soon!!  I have a project that I created for this month’s Release Class, and of course it’s interactive.  I guess I kinda like that stuff now.  LOL  It features the new Toad-Ally Awesome Stamp Set and coordinating dies.  Check it!

KKL_APR0318-NPL-and-Release-Class

Okay so I wanted to figure out a way to pull on a tab, and make the frog jump.  So I went to work to figure out the engineering of it all, and I’m thrilled to say that I did!  Here’s what it looks like when you pull on the tab!

KKL_APR0318-NPL-and-Release-Class-Pulled

So that tab is attached to a plastic loop, so that when you pull on it, the frog leaps up!  I was pretty stinkin’ proud of myself for figuring that one out!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.  You can find the step-by-step video for my project HERE on Friday, April 6th at 9:00 PM EDT and a printable PDF HERE on Sunday, April 8th!  Here’s a sneak peek of each of this month’s Release Class projects:

Hello again!

We are ever so close to the April Release!  Just one more sleep, and all of those April goodies will be available for purchase!!  I’m popping in today to share one last project before the New Product Launch – this one featuring the new Cross-Stitch Rectangle Die-Namics and the new Congrats Die (free with $60 purchase).

KKL_APR0218-CD-Day-1

How fun is this?!!  I’m so excited that we now have a cross-stitch platform that allows for larger patterns and designs!  I had a blast creating this sweet little scene, and thought it’d be perfect for a new home owner or even something a real estate agent could create for their new buyers!  I’m loving cross-stitching on my projects – it’s so therapeutic for me!  You can bet I’ll be using the new Cross-Stitch Rectangle Die-Namics OFTEN!  As I mentioned, the Congrats die is the new “free with $60 purchase” die.  And I love it!  The stamped sentiment is from the previously released No Place Like Home Stamp Set.  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

Hello again!

Print

We’re almost ready for this month’s My Favorite Things April Release!!  Just one more day until it can be in your hot little hands!  I’m popping in today to share another project, this one featuring the new A Tweet Hello Stamp Set and coordinating dies, as well as the new Garden Gate Die-Namics!  Check it out!

KKL_APR0118-CD-Day-2

A Tweet Hello Stamp Set is full of super cute bird images, as well as some perfectly paired sentiments!  I combined the A Tweet Hello Stamp Set with the musical notes from the Jungle Vibes Stamp Set and coordinating dies (previously released) as I thought they were a perfect fit for the “A Note to Lift Your Spirits” sentiment.  And the beauty of the new Garden Gate Die-Namics just speaks to me!  The ornamental beauty can be subtle (like it is here) or dramatic – I love that!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.
