My Favorite Things–Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge!

Hola, chicas!!

I had an AWESOMELY productive and creative weekend, and that makes me happier than a pig in slop! And I did it all in my “under world” hot craft room, to boot! LOL  Seattle experienced a bit of a crazy heat wave on Saturday and Sunday, and let’s just say that even though I live in Phoenix most of the year, I do NOT do heat well.  Yes, I was a little whiney, but I pushed through and was very successful in getting crap done!  #BOOM!


Anywho, I’m popping in quickly today to share the project that I created for this month’s My Favorite Things Creative Construction With Blueprints Challenge!  My Creative Team peeps and I were challenged to use the brilliantly engineered line of Blueprints Die-Namics to create a masculine card.  Here’s my answer to the challenge:


When My Favorite Things released the You Float My Boat Stamp Set this month, I knew I had to make an interactive card.  And the dies contained in the Blueprints 21 Die-Namics were the perfect match for this concept!  I used the pierced rectangle die, the half circle die, and the sentiment flag die from Blueprints 21 Die-Namics to create the scene.  I used the Surf & Turf Die-Namics to create the slider channel.  So the very “masculine” sailboat “floats” through the waves with ease!!  Fun, right?!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

That’s it for me today, friends!!  I’m hoping to have another productive day in my craft room, and then I’m headed out to dinner with my high school girlies!! I CAN’T WAIT!  Thanks so much for stopping by today – it’s truly the highlight of my day!

Hello again!!

If it’s Friday, then it must be my day up on the Avery Elle Design Blog!  I’m sharing a project today that features the new Aloha Stamp Set, the coordinating Aloha Dies, as well as the Tropics Stamp Set and coordinating Tropics Dies.  I paired the newer products with the Mimosas Dies from last quarter’s release!
