Raisin Boat Challenge 10 Mother's Day

It's time for Raisin Boat's challenge #10, and this month, we'd like to see your Mother's Day projects! 

For this month's challenge, you can use any stamp set you have (you don't have to limit your entry to Raisin Boat stamps). That's right, use any stamp set you wish for this challenge, but if you use a Raisin Boat stamp set, it will count as two entries. That gives you twice the chance to win a stamp set of your choice!

Any mother would love a hand-made card that you created just for her! So get busy, have fun, and link those cards below. If you are looking for a set to rent for the challenge or another project, check out the wonderful collection Raisin Boat has in stock here.

We look forward to your Mother's Day creations for this challenge! 
Here is the card I created.

Here is a video to show you how I created the window.

I hope you will join us for this fun challenge at Raisin Boat

Thanks for stopping,

Textbook Petal Flowers

The flower swap at Your Paper Pantry this month is called "Textbook Petals." You can really make some beautiful flower from old books, newspaper or even an old telephone book.
Here are the flowers I made.
I used some junk jeweler for the centers of some of the flowers.
Here is a video showing all the flowers I made.

LESSology Challenge #24

Hi There, The challenge over at LESSology this month is called "Are You a Cover Girl?" You are to get creative with covers. Cover a box a jar, a book what every you like.  I have a very simple project for you with a fun technique.

I started with this very old 3 ring notebook.

Then with some glossy paper, Memento re-inkers, and some cheap makeup sponges I turned it into this.

Here is a video showing how I did this.

I hope you will join the challenge. See you at LESSology.
Thanks for stopping,
