ProjectPea Blog Hop!


Hello Sweet Crafty Friends and welcome to our Monthly ProjectPea Blog Hop!!

Each month the fabulous team of ProjectPea Designers are challenged to create FUN & CREATIVE projects that are sure to make you look at your stamp sets and dies with brand new eyes!

 
For my project today, I made a fun little Valentine mailbox:) You can find the file for this HERE. I decorated it with some very old Stampin' Up dp that I had in my stash, along with some fab SugarCuts Dies! The darling envelope comes from the SugarCuts-Special Delivery Accents die set and then heart inside the envelope and the "love" sentiment were cut with dies from the SugarCuts-Heart Journal Card die set.
 
 
So fun! I just love all the new dies:)
 

The rest of the team has pulled out all of the stops with a variety of projects that will spark YOUR creativity. Click through to each of their blogs below to see the FUN they have dreamed up. Leave them a little blog love and one lucky commenter will WIN a $15 Gift Certificate to the SPD Boutique.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Happy hopping:)

SPDSS19!


Hello! It's time for another new sketch at SugarPea Designs and once again it's another fab layout!

 
I used the Classroom Cupids stamp set for my card today. I just love that sentiment and the guitar is so fun! I also used the Build a Background-Basics to stamp the bg behind the guitar. This stamp set is part of the Sweet Incentive Program which you can read about HERE! Finally, I added the heart which I cut using a SugarCuts Heart Journal Card Die. The dp is My Mind's Eye Cupid's Arrow.
 
We hope you'll play along with us for your chance to win up to a $15 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs Online Boutique! Just link your projects on the SugarPea Designs Blog HERE!

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Band It 2!


Hello! I wanted to share a recent thank you card I made using some fab products from Taylored Expressions

I haven't used this gorgeous silhouette from Discover Your Wings in a while and it's one of my favorites:) I inked it up with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and cut it out with the coordinating Discover Your Wings-Flowers Die. I then layered it over some Salt Water Taffy dp that I embossed with the new Cloudy Days EF. I also added a butterfly from the same set in the corner. Finally, I used the awesome Band It 2 Die for the sentiment which comes from the Wispy Wishes stamp set.

Well I will be spending today through Sunday at Disney World of Sports working at the gymnastics meet that my daughter's gym hosts every year. Should be fun! Avery competes on Sunday and I'm praying she has a great meet! She needs a confidence boost:) Thanks for stopping by and have a fab Friday!

Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration!


Hello! I have a sweet Valentine card to share today using some TE Pinterest Inspiration:) The card I was inspired by this month is this fun card by Jen Shults which you can find HERE!



I chose to make a Valentine card using a similar layout like she did. I used this adorable image from the TE set Love Makes the World Go Round. I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut it out with a Circle Nestability and layered it over a heart that I cut with the TE Heart Stacklets and embossed with the TE Lots of Dots EF. I also used the Heart Stacklets for the smaller heart by the sentiment and the Banner Stacklets 1 Dies for the sentiment and the banner behind the image. The dp is Doodlebug Designs Lovebirds.

You can find tons of inspiration on the Taylored Expressions Pinterest Boards HERE! Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your Monday!
