Today is the 13th anniversary of my wedding day...so it seems awfully fitting that the Paper Girls have challenged us to make an anniversary project!
I made this cute little card to give to my husband:
The stamped image and sentiment is from a retired set from Sweet Stamp Shop called Yummy Love - it was perfect for a playful joke we have with each other. I colored the image with Copics and then die cut my pieces from an old Spring collection from Dear Lizzy with steal dies from My Favorite Things. With a little foam tape, the card really came together.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you'll join the challenge and link your project to the Paper Girls Challenge Blog no later than 11:55pm on Saturday, 5/13.
Have a wonderful day!

Michele has challenged us Paper Girls to create a project with numbers. I created this fun birthday card to highlight a milestone birthday for my father-in-law.

I'm hosting the Luck of the Irish challenge on the Paper Girls Challenge blog this week! I'm challenging everyone to create an Irish or St. Patrick's themed project.
Here is the layout I created for this:
I cut the title, shamrocks, and the little worm using the Create a Critter cartridge from Cricut. and followed the instructions from a free sketch from Scrapbook Generation as my inspiration. All the papers were from my stash, no specific brand or collection...it feels nice to use up my supplies!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that you'll join us for the challenge and link a project to the post before Saturday March 18th, 11:55pm MST. I'd love to see what you create!

I'm thrilled to be hosting the first challenge of the New Year for the Paper Girls challenge blog - I'm really hoping you'll join us! I'm challenging you to create a project that is inspired or using confetti! Yes - beautifully messy and unruly confetti :) You have until Saturday, January 14th to link up a project to the challenge - AND we have an excellent new prize structure that you won't want to miss!
Here are the cards I created for this weeks challenge:
The sentiment stamp is from Fawn Lawn's Big Scripty Words set, and all the inks (with the exception of the gold pigment ink from Color Box) is from Close to My Heart.

I'm hosting this weeks challenge with the Paper Girls - Tag, You're it! I'm hoping that everyone will join in on this challenge and create a project using tags. What is more exciting, however, is that the Greeting Farm is sponsoring this challenge! They are going to be giving a $25 gift certificate to their store to one random participant in the challenge - so, you should definitely link up with us! They are one of my favorite stamp companies - so I'm thrilled they were willing to sponsor us!
I used this challenge to kick off my own holiday tags! I really love to dress up packages (usually to hide my crummy wrapping job), but I really like how fast tags come together and how much you can personalize them too. Here are a few tags I was able to finish so far:

I was inspired to make these adorable little flowers by watching this video on YouTube - and the feathers were inspired by seeing multiple projects on Pinterest. I embellished the flowers with gems from Pebbles, and they added just the right about of bling.
I hope that this inspired you to use up those rolls of washi laying around! You have until 11:55pm (MST) on Saturday, August 13th to link up your project for a change to win a collection of goodies from us Paper Girls. I can't wait to see how you use your tape!
Thanks for stopping by!
