CCEE1729 ~ Moon and Space Exploration


Good Morning, friends :)

 Over at the CCEE Stampers, Maryann is once again the hostess
of the challenge at hand.
She chose for us to make a card based on another day on the
 *Days of the Year Calendar* ~ Moon and Space Exploration Day!

This is one area where my stamps are lacking, so
I chose the closest thing:  A moon, some stardust and moonbeams! ♥



The stamp is from Elzybells (retired) and I've had this set for forever and a day.
How I miss this stamp company!

Please stop by the CCEE Stampers blog 
and see what the rest of the DT has made.
And if you upload your card to a gallery like splitcoaststampers,
use the keyword CCEE1729 ~ we'd love to visit and see your creation :)

I'll be back shortly with my R, S, G card, too!
We've been going through the gambit of 1,000 things and are just coming up for air.
I'm sure you know the feeling!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

TPB Christmas in July - Day 2!



Welcome back to day 2 of The Project Bin’s Christmas in July 
 Blog Hop! 

After 2 full days of The Project Bin’s holiday hop, you’ll probably have so many ideas, you can already start your Christmas list!

If you are hopping along, you should have arrived here from Patricia's blog.  
 If you get lost along the way, or started somewhere in the middle,
 follow the candy cane trail back to The Project Bin inspiration blog.  
 You won’t want to miss the creativity along the way and remember:
  2 lucky winners have the chance of winning
 one of the 2 generous gift certificatesto shop at The Project Bin store! 
 Woohoo!



For today’s holiday inspiration, I’ve created for you
a snow shaker card using my 2nd favorite stamp set in the store!
I love this holiday sentiment set ♥
Living in South Florida, this is the only snow I will see! 
I used my die cuts and the Cuttlebug to make a simple circular and scallop edge,
filled it with faux snow ($1 store), sealed it with thin 3d foam tape,
and attached it to the card base.
I left the card base a little more simpler than I usually do as the fun sentiment 
and snow are the focal point of my card.

The stamp reads:
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store.
 Maybe Christmas means a little bit more!'
You may recognize this wonderful quote from
the 1957 classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas' by Dr. Suess.  

Here is the set in it's entirety:

 Be sure to leave a comment at each stop and the winners will be announced 
on The Project Bin blog this week.  
And today - I'm the last stop on the hop 
and we hope you enjoyed our Christmas in July blog hop.  

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

Christmas in July with The Project Bin - Day 1!



Welcome to The Project Bin’s premiere Christmas in July Blog Hop!
We are so glad you are here!  
  The elves at The Project Bin have been very busy :)
For the next 2 days,  July 15 and 16, the design team will be showcasing the stamps and dies from the store and bringing you a hand-crafted Christmas! 
 You’ll see Christmas cards, holiday projects and ideas to inspire creativity to jump start your holiday planning. 


 Our sleigh ride will take you to each designer’s blog where you can peek at what they have showcased using The Project Bin’s stamps and dies. 
 AND since the holidays are known for gift giving, 2 lucky winners will receive one of the 2 generous The Project Bin gift certificate giveaways to use in the store!
If you are new to The Project Bin stamps and dies, you are in for a real treat!  
    The Project Bin offers clear stamps and metal dies ~ something for everyone. 
  


The hop begins at The Project Bin’s inspiration blog and has the full line up.
If you arrived from Barb's amazing blog, you are in the right place!

For my stop on the hop, I'm showing you a handmade Christmas project.
My son was super lucky to visit a private island for a weekend
 and brought home a piece of beautiful coral for me 
as he knows I love all things ocean ♥


I wanted to find a neat way to showcase the coral,
so I added it to a tall candle holder, filled it with sand, and added jute twine!
This is such a wonderful way to 'bring home the holidays'
and make gift giving special and personalized.


The tag is made from kraft cardstock, fiskars punch, gingham ribbon.
I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a nestabilities die, cropping off the the bottom die.
The Christmas Blessings is stamped in Stazon
and is from the Luke 2 stamp set

Next up, head over to Angela's amazing blog to see what she has to inspire you. 
Make sure to leave a comment for each of the stops on the hop ~
 you won’t want to miss it!

Here is the full hop line up for today:
