Challenge #161 "Make it green".

It's time for another episode of Rhapsody on Paper featuring Crafty Gals Corner Challenges.   This challenge is always anything goes but has another ingredient, make it green for St. Patricks Day on Saturday March 17, 2018.

Crafty Gals Design Team are using fabulous images from our sponsor The Paper Shelter.

Prize:  $15 Gift Certificate

The Paper Shelter is amazing.  The digi's are very well done and the variety of images can't be beat.  Head on over to The Paper Shelter and please take a look around.  There is something for everyone!

My image for this week is called So Ready For Spring.  I am in love with this image.  On to what I have created for Make it green!

Here are all the items for my shaker card.  See the cardboard strips?
I will glue 4 together to raise the top of the card for the filling.
I have used a overhead projector sheet of clear plastic to
hold those little shamrocks in the shaker.
**Overhead projector sheets
can be found for cheap at thrift stores**

Here are the risers all glued together.

The shaker contents

The top of the shaker card.  Can you see the plastic?

Measuring for length of cardboard risers

Double sided tape is a wonderful invention

So here is the shaker 

The finished card

The window of the shaker is the exact same
as the window of the card.

My shaker completed!

That's it for this week.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me.  Coming up in two weeks is a little taste of summer.  Have a wonderful St. Patricks Day!  Bright blessings, Jana

Challenge #160 'Anything Goes'

Last week I was feeling a little bit out of sorts about my blog writing.  I haven't been giving either blog enough attention.  So hopefully this blog edition will be a little bit clearer.  But first, lets take a look and see who is sponsoring our challenge this fortnight.

Prize:  2 Digital Stamps & 2 Digital Paper Packs

Prize:  1 Digital Image

Prize:  1 Image used by the fabulous design team

The sponsors for this 2 week period are new to me.  I am using Twinkle Lane Designs for my project.  The image is called Ice Skater Digi and Snowflake Swirl Paper Pack.  I have colored the Ice Skater image and printed one of the snowflake backgrounds.  I had to jazz the snowflakes up a bit.  So you know me, time for some sparkles in the form of Dollar Tree stick on rhinestones.  Let me show you...

Can you see the rhinestones?

I also drug out my Stickles in various colors.  Stickles are small bottles of glitter glue.  I put stickles
on the ice skating pond.  I colored the pond first with Grey and Putty Prismacolor Pencils.  

This is the inside.  I thought using the same paper for the entire project
would be a good idea.

I printed out another sheet of the beautiful snow flake digital paper and
made a delightful envelope to match.
Here is the back of the card.  I think that it is time for a new image for
the back.  Maybe something spring~ish?

So that is my project for this challenge.  I think I did better with the descriptions.  Let me know what you think with a comment.  Or would you prefer just a list of everything I used?  I am good either way.

Bright blessings for your best week ever!  Jana

Challenge #159 'Add a heart'

Dear friends and family,  Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope you are all having a wonderful time in whatever you are doing.

So for this fortnights challenge, the theme is add a heart.  There are so many ideas that pop into my head.  But first let see who our sponsor(s) are for this challenge.

Scrap N Dipity

Prize-3 digital images

Prize-3 digital images

 Oh my golly gracious, make sure you visit and give them both some love.  They both have fabulous images.  My image this challenge is called Love Fairy 2015 and is by Scrap N Dipity (the image name on the CGCC web site is incorrect) What a fun image to color and create with.  So lets look at the card I have made.

(Picture Heavy, sorry)

Here are the two completed cards.

The purple card

The inside

The back.
I love decorating the back.
Never know what might show up.

The green card

This turned out to be a birthday card for our new employee at our shop.

And again the back of the card.

For the past few weeks, Hobby Lobby was having a clearance sale.  They are downsizing or re-designing the paper craft area.  They had a lot of supplies, stamps, tool and machines on sale.  I was one of the lucky ones to get a Gemini by Crafters Companion.  It was originally 179.99 and I got it for $45.00.  Score one for me.  So in the coming weeks, I will show off all my dies and embossing folders.

So grateful to have you visit this week.  Bright Blessings and have your best week ever!!!
