Challenge #120 Anything Goes

Well it's the end of the month and that means the theme for this weeks challenge is 'Anything Goes'.  Before I show you my example, lets showcase our fabulous sponsor(s) for this week.  If you have time, give them some love. 

Prize:  3 Digital Images

Prize: 2 images the DT used 

Boy howdy, those are some nice prizes.  Now on to what I have created for this week.  Each May, I have 10 dear friends that I make birthday cards for.  I go into production mode and create an assembly line.  It has worked out great for the last 4 years.  This year is a little different.  I am coloring each image and then putting the focal point in a pile, then making the cards.  So let me show you the start of the first set of 5 cards.

This is Tori the birthday dragon girl from Conie Fong.  I just love her images.

The front


The back

These turned out so danged cute.  I will make 3 more of these.  The other image I am using is last weeks image from Dr. Digi "Mystic Mabel".  5 of those to color.  I am having such a fun time!

Hope you week is your best week ever!  Bright blessings,

Challenge # 116 Anything Goes! Tami, this is for you!

Today I would like to share a very important card.  Around 3 weeks ago, I had a contest to introduce another blog that I have. Have Colors, Be Happy! 

Well to make a long story short, my dear friend that I have known since childhood won that contest.  I needed to make a card for congratulations.  She is an avid amazing quilter and quite gifted in her ability.  So the card needed to be related to sewing.  (sorry Tami, the package will go out with your prize very soon)  Before I show you what I came up with, let's see who our fabulous SPONSORS are for this weeks anything goes challenge!

Friends, I have to warn you that this post is picture heavy.  Rather than try to explain how I created this, I am just going to show you.  So here we go!

This is a plastic divider page.  I got a package of 8 for a buck.

This is a template for my planner hole placement

The DCWV Star Dust Stack

I cut the divider to 7x9 and used the template to and a hole punch to get the placement just right. 

My planner I got for Christmas at Costco

As you can see, this week isn't even started.

I also wanted to make some cute paper clips

The stamps I used for paper clips

I am using the Little Green Man from Wink Wink Ink.  The Little green man is 1 1/2 tall here

Little green man is 8 1/2 inches tall
Using my KNK Zing, I scanned in my 2 stamp images.  I re-sized them.  Then with my trusty MTC program, I printed them on my Samsung Lazer Printer so I could use my Foilmaster and foil the images.
Lazer Printer

These are the foiled stamped images.  Using MTC and my Zing I was able to print and cut the images after they were foiled.  Such a great program and cutter.

Cut images.  The silver quote reads, Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss you'll land among the stars.

I cut the DCWV Star Dust to 7x9
1 piece for front and back

Finishing the paper clips

I had mirrored the images so that I would have front and backs that fit together
Just a closer look

Closer look

I wanted my Little Green Man's head to act like a tab when turning the page

So here is my divider page placed in my planner

With the paper clips

Close up look at finished paper clips.
That is it for my divider page for my planner project.  Hope this inspires you to try something different.

On Saturday I am being mom-napped by my wonderful daughters for a small shopping trip to the big city.  Hope to come home inspired with some new crafting goodies.

Have your best week ever!  Bright Blessings,
