RCC85 – Back to School!

Are you ready for a brand new monthly challenge???

This is the last month with our current DT!!!! So let’s play along and have some fun with them.


Some kiddos have already gone back to school in August, but in September everything is back in full swing! Kids go back to school and mamas get more stamping time!


This month the theme is BACK TO SCHOOL!

So what  prize is up for grabs? How about a Ribbon Carousel?!

Each month we are giving away a Ribbon Carousel to one of our randomly chosen challenge participants!

Just a reminder that our Ribbon Carousel Crewmates have divided up into FOUR teams.  Each week you will see fresh projects for this month’s challenge!

There are three rules to be eligible for the prize:

1.  You MUST use ribbon or twine on your creation.

2. Your project must be based on the theme of the month.

3. You must add  a NEW project  to the inlinkz below and link directly back to your project on your blog or online gallery.

So I don’t really have any school themed stamps – mostly because I homeschool my kids right now and don’t really have a use for them.  I do have a lot of teacher friends though!  And truthfully, I would just like them to know I am thinking of them as they return to school this year.  Here is my nod to my teacher friends – I am thinking of all of you!

I haven’t been online or in my stamp space much lately as I had PRK this month.  The upside, I no longer need glasses!  The downside, I still don’t see very well yet and I am so sensitive to light!  I cannot look at my computer for very long at all.   But it all gets a little better every day!

RCC84 – Summertime Fun!

Hi fellow crafters! Are you ready for a brand new monthly challenge???


This month we are looking for some Summertime Fun!


At least the northern hemisphere is in summer mode, although some areas are unseasonably cool right now. We hope our Southern hemisphere friends can play along as well and think happy summer thoughts!

To get a summer feel for my card today I went for BRIGHT!  To me that spells out summer fun.  I chose Peaceful Wildflowers from My Favorite Things.  To get a simple, clean look I inked the stamp up using makers and just layered it with a small black edge.  Then highlighted the bright colors with some washi tape from Michael’s.  Super easy and fun!

Since my youngest son wanted to stamp along with me this evening – he decided to follow the theme as well!  Using some stamps from Paper Smooches, he came up with this card – all by himself!!  (he wanted me to say that I did make the grass for him using a die from MFT.)

So to me, the beginning of summer is all about the flowers, the green grass, the bright sun – you know, the time before it gets so freaky hot!  I used My Favorite Things LJD Sweet Roses along with their InstaFrame Die. I colored the flowers using my copic markers and popped them up with dimensionals.  Finished it off with a button and some twine!
