The Hop to Stop

Check it out! 

Today, I'm joining in the The Hop To STOP blog hop!  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and this hop is designed to raise awareness about domestic violence, an issue that impacts 1 in 4 women, and the resources that are available to assist victims of domestic violence.

For the hop I created a Birthday Card featuring a mix of stamps and dies from
 My Favorite Things and Papertrey Ink.

Paper: White CS (Recollections), Black CS (Recollections), Green CS, Silver CS, Purple CS; Stamps: Big Greetings (My Favorite Things); Ink: Black (Simon Says Stamps); Tools: Cover Plate Stripes Diagonal Die (Papertrey Ink), Circle Scribbles Die Collection (Papertrey Ink), Pierced Square Stax (Die-Namics), Royal Rose and Mini Royal Rose (Die-Namics), Royal Leaves (Die-Namics), Scor-buddy; Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Big Shot (Sizzix); Other: Clear Gems, ATG Tape, Scor-Tape, Foam Tape

Let's show our support and help spread awareness by:
  • Create any type of papercraft/mixed media art project, as long as it *features* the color purple (domestic violence awareness color).
  • Linkup for the hop will be posted on October 1 and will close October 14. Prize winners will be announced October 17. 
  • Comment on the three entries before your linkup in order to be eligible for a prize (be a good bloggy neighbor!) (unless it's a site that requires a login).
  • Display the sponsor graphic!
  • Provide a direct link back to the hop.
 For more information about domestic violence, its impacts, and available resources, visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence.

The Curtain Call Challenge - Going Batty

It's that time again...Curtain Time!!
We are excited to present a new challenge, Going Batty

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge! 

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to craft for and I love creating fun treat containers so when I saw the new Peek-a-Bat die from Lawn Fawn I had to have it.  Instead of using it with their pillow box I used it with their Goodie Bag.  To make it fit I just cut it in half and attached it to the back of the box.   I also used the Spooktacular stamp set and coordinating dies to decorate this fun treat box.  To keep the shred from poking out his face I used a small piece of clear acetate.   Now I just need to fill it with some candy.

Paper: Black CS (American Crafts), DP (My Minds Eye), Clear Acetate; Stamps: Spooktacular (Lawn Fawn); Ink: VersaMark; Tools: Goodie Bag Die (Lawn Fawn), Peek-a-Bat Die (Lawn Fawn), Tag You're It Die (Lawn Fawn), Spooktacular Coordinating Dies (Lawn Fawn), Embossing Heat Tool, Paper Trimmer (Fiskars); Other: Paper Straw (Celebrate It), Twine (Hemptique),  Crinkle Cut Shred, Googly Eyes, Scor-tape, Glue Pen (Zig), Foam Tape

Make It With Me Monday - With Deepest Sympathy

I'm back today with one more card.  It's my take on this weeks Make It With Me Monday with Reverse Confetti over on Periscope.  If you haven't found your way over to Periscope you are missing out....I'm totally addicted.  

This week Jen created a card with Faith based stamps.  I didn't have any of the sets she used but I thought that the clean layout was perfect for a Sympathy card.  I used the In a Big Way stamp set and the newly released Leafy Confetti Cut.

Paper: White CS (Recollections), Crumb Cake CS (SU!), Old Olive CS (SU!); Stamps: In A Big Way (Reverse Confetti); Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento); Tools: Leafy (Confetti Cut), Distress Tool (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Scor-buddy, Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Big Shot (Sizzix); Other: Clothes Pin, Twine, ATG Tape, Foam Tape
