{SPD} Baby Ele




Hey guys! I have a cute lil baby card to share with you today. I've used this sweet little elephant stamp from SugarPea Designs called Tons of Fun.


I've used SS summer vibes paper pad and matching enamel dots, as well as a button and twine (MFT)....distress inking and machine stitching add a vintage touch.



I used SPD's current colour challenge as part of my inspiration! You can find more details on that HERE!

{KKS} Bathing Baby


It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!! As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get krafty!!
Have you ordered your Halloween Krafty Kit yet?!? There are still a few kits left, remember once these are gone... it's GONE!!!!
We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until August 25th at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN?? Let's see your krafty stuff!


I used one of the cute lil baby's from Welcome to the World! I made this a baby girl card, even though the image strikes me as a baby boy for some reason! I love the iridescent bubbles, which I added a coating of glossy accents and loose glitter. I also shined up the ducks bill!


In addition to the great Krafty Challenges & Wonderful Wednesday, each month we will post a Sketch. The sketch will last all month long and if you use it in ANY of our Challenges or WW's during that month you will get an additional chance to win a store gift card! You do NOT have to use the sketch, it's just a little extra boost for your mojo if ya need it!

{SPD} Hey, Smartypants




We've got a new challenge at SugarPea Designs! Our challenge this week is SUMMERTIME SWEETNESS! I wanted to make a card using bright summer colours and it took a bit of a sideways turn and ended up 'back to school' kinda feeling....but hey, school supplies shopping is part of the summer routine! I swear I spent most of my time in Walmart looking for a NORMAL box (make that 3) of pencil crayons! I finally tracked them to some obscure centre aisle about halfway across the store from the school supply section. Good job Walmart. And toting 3 boys along for that trip was a joy :/ Thankfully they were very well behaved and even (GASP!) helpful checking things off the list! I ended up taking them out to a matinee- Tomorrowland- afterwards :)


I've used SugarCuts Notebook Journal Card, as well as the sentiment from I Like Big Books! I love this sentiment paired with the pencil die!

SugarPea Designs is also sponsoring the Freshly Made Sketches #200 Challenge!  



I derailed a bit from the sketch, making my focal panel (the black notebook die) quite a bit smaller than the sketch, but I was definitely inspired by this sketch!
