How About a Sneak Peek? Ready, Set…Chipboard!

How About a Sneak Peek? Ready, Set…Chipboard!

Every once in awhile there’s a weekend steal that is just begging to be shown on the blog (I have way too many ideas for weekdays only).  Since we don’t have weekend blog features, I asked Melodee if we could have a sneak peek afternoon posting of the goodness that will be coming your way tomorrow, the Cosmo Cricket Ready Set Chipboard Kit.

One of the things that I love about tomorrow’s steal is the wide variety of projects that can be created with one kit.

I figured I would do my best to entice Mother Nature to deliver warmer weather by creating a cute shadow box decoration and a card using the “Togetherness” chipboard collection.  Nothing says spring like bunnies, pinwheels and birds.

I am always looking for inexpensive items to alter and make cute.  A trip to the dollar store for a photo frame, some patterned paper and a little paint yielded this cute decoration for my girls’ room using the “Pixielicious” chipboard set.

Look at how perfectly the butterfly flourish worked to complete this card.

Now I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty tired of winter, but look how darling these wintery projects turned out with pieces from the “Mitten Weather” collection.

You’ll also get a set of “Lavender Bling” letters as part of tomorrow’s steal. Can’t beat that and can’t beat the price either! You will just have to check in tomorrow at 9AM to see about that. ;)

Have a great weekend!

I think there is a little Chill in the Air…MCM #6

I think there is a little Chill in the Air…MCM #6

So I have to tell you that  today is the *perfect* creating weather.  It’s gloomy and doomy outside, so what better way to spend some time than snuggied up creating!

I have been dying all weekend to get my hands on today’s steal, the WINTER Creative Charms Collection.

Even though I despise snow with every ounce of my being (and yes, I even saw the dreaded white stuff flying today), I LOOOOOOOOOOVE snowflake embellishments, and today’s steal is of no exception.

Thankfully that kit alone, saved this weeks MCM.

I’m sure we are all in the same boat from time to time, where being creative kind of hurts your brain.  I feel like mine slipped or something because the creative vibes were sort of a challenge today.  Truth be told, I think it’s the post vacation energy flop.  ;)

I really wanted to keep this weeks sketch fairly simple as I am so in love with the snowflake border in the Creative Charms kit, that I wanted to make sure that it was a big focus of the card.  Of course I had to get a little bit busy with my Silhouette and cut out one of the snowflakes that came with the machine.  I added a little silver ink and the amazing Creative Charms bling ‘brrr’, popped a gem brad in the center of the snowflake and sure enough..done!  (Truth be told, I’m feeling a bit better about it right now.  My 13 year old just walked in and ooohed and ahhhhhhhhhd over it.  What a good girl.  Or maybe I just have her trained well.  HA HA!  ;)  )

I then made another card tweaking the sketch slightly.

I also couldn’t resist playing a little more with my Silhouette and decided to download a fun winter tree design.  I added the snowflake gems from the Creative Charms kit as well as some of the gradient gems then finished it off with another blingy sentiment!

Keep your projects coming!  We LOOOOOOOVE seeing what you create.  Remember to have your MCM #6 posted online or to our Facebook Fan Page with a link provided in the comments of this posting for your chance to be eligible to randomly win this months batch of cards.
