Through the Craftroom door showcase

Hi there! I'm so happy to be part of this team, DeeDee's is being showcased in Through the Craftroom door

We have some exclusive digital sets that we were able to create some samples for the magazine.  I've never been published so this is pretty cool!

I made this set of note cards.
I kept them simple, just adding a few flowers from my stash.  On a few I cut out the bible a little bigger so it really pops on the card.

Be sure to pop over and check out the issue.

Patriotic chick

I used the Patriotic chick image for this quick and simple scrapbook page.  
I can't wait to get a picture of my daughter in her 4th of July outfit for this one!

Halloween kitties

 I cleaned out a bin of "stuff" recently and came across a bunch of images printed and colored and some SVG files put together just waiting to be used.  So I made this fun lay out using this set.
Since I made them ages ago...most likely last fall, I can not remember who's files they are to give credit.  I've looked through my files and can not find them.  SO, if you know who made these please leave me a comment so I can credit the proper company.   TIA

Izzy Bizzy doll

 You've seen my Rainbow loom posts before, mostly pretty bracelets.
I have learned, thanks to some great tutorials on You Tube, how to "crochet" with the Rainbow loom bands.

Yup, this doll is all Rainbow Loom bands!  Isn't she wonderful?  She's about 12 inches tall, maybe a little over that. 
Her dress comes off and I will be making more outfits for her along with different hair styles, her "wig" comes off too!

She has on a one piece bathing suit/under garment.  

I am so proud of her!  She was a ton of work and Emily loves her.  The smiles are so worth it!

If you want to make your own, check out Kate on You Tube at Izzylicious Designs

Red, white and blue challenge

digi13105 Lg Candle Balloon
digi14804 Fireworks
digi2706(490) Believe

I used 4 images on my card today along with an SVG file from Creative Kuts.
You can click on the title above and go right to each image in the shop.
 Fun right? I added lots of gems to the fire works for the bling.
 I used the pocket from our 4th of July Buster as the easel prop and hid buster inside.
 You can remove Buster and write a message on his card.

Summer fun

  I created this lighthouse using a file from the SIL store.

 I found a bag of sea glass in a cute local store, I love the big chunks.
The mermaid is a little resin piece I found online, I love her.
Well. I saw a challenge that this lighthouse would have been perfect for and now I can't find the email and can't for the life of me remember which blog it was listed on...sigh...makes me crazy

This card is for the Scibbles challenge of "fins, feathers and frog legs.  I love the duck floatie so I had to make a cute scene.  I created an easel card using the fish to hold it open.

 I cut the bird's legs off and glued them to the bottom of the floatie so they show.  I thought it was a cute touch.  I covered the float with crystal effects so it's plastic like.

Liberty bear

I made a fun collage card today using the Liberty Bear.
I used some metallic markers for the blue and gold.  I added crystal effects to the eyes and nose and crown.  I also added crystal glitter to the stars and flame.

You can find the Liberty bear here

Christmas cards

A couple of Christmas cards. I love making Christmas cards the most.
The colors and the sweet images are just so fun to me.

I used my glitter gel pen to write Joy on the banner.

I'm adding these to the 12 months of Christmas link up.

Paper piecing challenge

digi39301 Tree Pattern

 This week's challenge is paper piecing.  The first time I saw this image I knew I wanted to make something like this so when I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I was going to do.
I printed 4 trees on white and a tree on 4 different patterns of green.  I then chose 2 patterns and alternated them on 2 trees then repeated.
Took forever but I love the results.  I added some clear drying glue and my polar white flower soft to look like snow.  I then used one of my My Favorite Things dies to create the snow drifts.

I'll be adding this to the 12 month Christmas challenge
