CC Designs April Preview -- Meoples

Hello!  Wow, is it already time for another CC Designs preview?  Amazing that we are heading into April.  There are some cute birthday themed stamps coming your way this month.

I used Meoples HB2U for this little card.  Aren't they cute?  The four characters come together in this little stamp set.  The sentiments are nice and big and are from Great Birthday Greetings.  I used CC Cutters Say Cheese die for the photo look.

Please head over to the CC Designs blog to see more of the preview.

I'll keep this post short and sweet.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

2015 Hello Kitty Calendars

Hello!  I am trying to stock up on more 2015 calendars!  I dug out my old Sizzix Hello Kitty dies and made a few calendars plus some other goodies that I'll share another day.

These calendars measure 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  I used some pretty washi paper that I recently ordered and the calendars are the tear off kind from Taylored Expressions.

This is the back and I added the easel diecut for easy standing.

Here is a close up of Hello Kitty.  Her face and bow were cut from crushed velvet cardstock.  Her nose is gold and her eyes and whiskers are black.  It does take some time to cut and glue all the tiny pieces on. 

Here are a couple more using different washi paper.

Hope you are not too tired of seeing calendars!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

CC Designs March Review -- Roberto's Rascals

Hello!  I'm back today for CC Designs March review of Roberto's Rascals.

This card features Roberto's Rascals Henry with Chick.  I kept it pretty simple as usual to focus on the image.  The sentiment is from AmyR Eggstra Special Sentiments and I thought it fit this scene nicely.  The papers are from Doodlebug and that little chick paper is so perfect for this image.

Be sure to check out more from the DT on the CC Designs blog.

Keeping this post short cause I have to clean up and organize my crafty area so I can color up some more images.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

CC Designs March Review -- Fluffy Bear

Hello!  It's a review day at CC Designs.  I made a pretty simple project to share today with CC Designs Fluffy Bear.

I thought this cute little bear would be perfect for a baby announcement or some tags on a baby gift.  I fussy cut the little bows and made one pink for a girl and the other blue for a boy.  The banner at the top is CC Cutters Banner Day die and the sentiments come from AmyR Welcome Little One sentiments.  Pretty simple, right?

Please check out the rest of the DT and what they've created for this review day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

2015 Calendars!

Hello!  Hope everyone's having a great Monday.  I made a whole list of things I wanted to get accomplished this week.  I think I can cross off one thing so far.  There really is not enough time in a day and time goes by so fast that by the time I do the morning chores and eat my lunch, it's time to pick up the children already!  Sometimes I wish we could just come home after school too but most days there are kids' activities or some other commitment.  I am looking forward to Spring Break!

I made more calendars!  And lucky for me that Taylored Expressions is so on it and already has 2015 calendars for sale!  I bought a bunch and plan on making a few more these.  I used Sister Stamps Sheep for this one. 

Here is a larger one, 8.5 x 11 inches.

This one is a half sheet and features Sister Stamps Jade and Moon.

I had made 2 Hello Kitty ones similar to the ones I made before HERE.  The colors were more Spring-y though.  I forgot to photograph them but the good news is that I was able to sell them plus the ones in that post!  Yay!  I have always been on the fence about selling my cards or other projects but this year, that will be one of my goals.  Maybe I'll even do a small craft fair or two?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CC Designs March Previews -- Pollycraft

Hello again!  It's day 3 of CC Designs March previews.  Today we're having a peek at a new line of stamps at CC Designs called Pollycraft.  You might be familiar with them as digital stamps from before.  I'm not completely familiar with them but they do have some adorable images!

This little cutie is called Fleur and I colored her in pink with a rainbow of flowers in her hair.  How cute are her rosy cheeks!  Just want to pinch them.  The sentiment is from AmyR Sunny Sentiments.  Did you notice the cute paper from Doodlebug's Springtime?  The sun has a smiley face.  Love this design.

Here's a close up of Fleur.  Her hair was a bit tricky for me, trying to get into those tiny spaces without messing up her flowers!

Please check out more of the Pollycraft preview at CC Designs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CC Designs March Previews -- Roberto's Rascals

Hello!  Welcome back to another preview day for CC Designs!  Today is all about Roberto's Rascals.  

The stamp here is Henry's Bunny.  Adorable, right?  I love these boy images from Roberto's Rascals.  They are so cute.  These papers are from Doodlebug's Springtime and are bright and happy.  The sentiment comes from AmyR Eggstra Special Sentiments.

Here's a close up of the cutie and his bunny.

Please check out the DT creations too.  There are more Roberto's Rascals images.

CC Designs March Previews -- Fluffy Bear

Hello!  It's already March!  Wow, it is going by super fast!  Now, it's already time for more previews with CC Designs

Here is my card and I do love this one.  She is called Fluffy Bear and the set comes with a couple of sentiments including the one that is above and the bow.  I fussy cut the bow and placed it by her ear to make her a girl bear but it could be a bow tie too.

Here is a close up of Fluffy Bear.  I was a little worried that I made her look like she had a beard or something.  Too many strokes with my Copic pen!  But I think I got it to lighten out a bit and after adding in the rosy cheeks, she looks pretty good to me.  I know she is a bear and it's okay for her to be a bit furry but I didn't want her to look like she needed a shave.

Please check out the CC Designs blog to see more previews of some cute new stamps!

Thanks so much for visiting and for leaving such nice comments!

CC Designs February Review -- Roberto's Rascals

Hi!  So I feel a little bad that in all the Sister Stamps preview excitement, I forgot to post my card for CC Designs February review.  Better late than never, right? 

I made this card a while ago and almost forgot about it.  But it is a bright sunny card and features Roberto's Rascals Splish Splash.  The sentiment is from AmyR Rainy Day sentiments.  I was happy that I finally got a chance to use this pretty gray ribbon.

Today is also release day for Sister Stamps.  Don't forget to get your cute bunnies!  Did you know CC Designs now also sells Sister Stamps again?  Great news!  And in case you are wondering, I did make more calendars this month.  I'll share them another day since March previews for CC Designs starts soon!

Thanks for stopping by!
