TOPS Fundraiser Art Board

This is a multi media canvas that I am donating  to my TOPS chapter to use as a fundraiser. I have used gesso and stencils to get the barn board look and colored it with gelatos. The center piece with the hearts is chip board from Dusty Attic as is the reeds at the bottom. The flowers, birdhouse, hummingbird and dragonfly are all created from Cheery Lynn Design dies. The butterfly is a stamped image and colored with gelatos.

Live Laugh and Love Layout

Hello This week for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge I have done a mini scrapbook page layout. The theme is "Anything Goes". I choose a patter paper with a bird and some flowers. I place three of the Royal Scandinavian Tag 2 along the right hand side. I  cut the Live Laugh Love in two different colors and then fussy cut the words apart as they cut attached to each other. I layered them onto each of the tags. I then layered one of the Pierced Stacker #3 to place a photo on. The Fancy Bird House was layered on front of the photo mat. There is a small flourish that comes with the tag set that I place above the hole in the birdhouse. A few flowers were added using the Judy's Blooms for the bigger one and the Embellishment #2 for the smaller ones. Well that is it for this weeks challenge. I am really enjoying creating with these new dies. Hope you can take some time for crafting and join our challenge at http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree.

Mother's Day

A warm hello to you. This weeks challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Mother's Day". So I was thinking a card with flowers. pink cowboy boot and Camo print paper. I started with using one of the Curved Borders along the left side. I then layered two different sizes of the  Pierced Stacker #2 and layer the cowboy boot from the Arizona Cowboy set. Some of the Tiny Fanciful Flourish Right & Left , Tiny Flower Kit  and  Baby's Breath Flower Kit  filled the boot nicely. The Dutch Daisy Super Doily 1 was set off side behind the flowers.  I then added the Paris Signs 2 to the top corner and extended the post on it.  I hung one of the smaller Pierced Stacker #2 from the sign also with the sentiment printed on it. Come and check out the other design team members creations @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/. I invite you to join in on the challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge. Have a crafty week.

New Car for Mother's Day Gift

Check it out! Today Cheery Lynn Designs has release a lot of new dies that are going to be fantastic to create with. Check them out @ http://www.cheerylynndesigns.com/new-releases/. What a great variety of designs they have released.
Well I have had been working with some the new releases and must say they are fantastic. I started with a full sized file folder and altered  it so it is 7inches by 4 3/4 inches. I used the new Page Tabs to add a tab to the file folder and printed car insurance on it. I cut the Hippie Mobile and put a piece of flowered pattern paper behind it. I think it looks pretty cool. I layered the Leafy Flourish off to the left. I cut two flourishes and cut the flowers off the second one to give the flowers a double layer. The sentiments Happy, Mother's and Day were placed along the top. I put a folded paper stapled inside the folder for the insurance papers and a paper clip for a added embellishment. Do check out the other design team members creations @ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/ using more of the newly released dies. They will impress and inspire you. Watch for my next post  on sunday for the "Mother's Day" challenge when I will be using more of the new dies.

Hi Wishing you all a Happy Easter. Today I am sharing with you my creation for the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge. The theme this week is flowers. I started with a barn board pattern paper for my base and then layered the Chicken Wire on top. Next I layered the Fanciful Flourish on top of the chicken wire. I made a variety of larger flowers using the Gardenia Strip, Sweet Williams Strip and the Chrysanthemum Strip. The smaller flowers are from the   Embellishments # 3. The tiny flowers are the Dandelions die. I took the dandelion die and colored all the tiny flowers in different colors and put a black center in each. They make great filler and look so nice in all the different colors. I will definitely use the dandelion die like this again. They make the cutest flowers. The Birdhouse with Lattice  was place on the bottom corner. Now we can't forget the sweet little birds from the Birds of Earth and Sky set. These birds are so detailed and just love to be perched in the flowers. I would like to invite you now to join the challenge and share your creations with us
@ http://cheerylynndesigns.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenge.  We have three new design team members that just joined us this week so check out their creations as well as the other design team members for more inspiration.
