Wool be Friends ~ CDD Social Media Challenge

Hi There! I hope you all are having a great week so far!

Today I am sharing a little inspiration for the Craftin Desert Divas Social Media challenge on Facebook.

This whole month we have been sharing projects that are inspired by our Inspiration board.

Following the farm theme this is the card I created:

These lambs are the cutest! They are from the CDD Punny Farm set.

I colored them with Copic markers and put them on a panel that I inked up with some Distress inks. I cut my panel with CDD Crazy Stitched Frames Dies.

My sentiment was perfect for this card. It is from CDD Animal Antics set. I finished the card off with some hearts that I die cut from CDD Pocket Pieces Hi Dies. I covered them with Glossy Acctes fro some shine and even put a little on the sheep noses.

If you would like to join in the challenge head on over to the CDD Faceook Gallery for all the details.

Have a great day!!

The little Polaroid was stamped with the Picture This stamps. I used a few stickers that coordinated with my color scheme to keep everything cohesive.

These are the perfect little stamps to use in your planner and that is exactly what I did.

I decorated my personal planner in a fall theme because it's the first day of fall!! Yay!

I used some new Doodlebug papers from the Flea Market pad. (It's in the store!!) These colors just speak to me! And the matching washi tape!! Ach! I just had to have them!!

The new Sweater Weather set has all kinds of cute fall images which I used here but there is also some winter images, as well.

I colored all of my images with Copic markers and tried to use the same colors throughout to keep everything cohesive.

Lastly I made a magnetic bookmark with one of the little card images in the Doodlebug paper. I had to make it a shaker with these yummy CDD sequins!

Workin It Out Fitness Spread ~ Craftin Desert Divas September Release

Hi Everyone! It's Hump Day so that week is almost halfway over!

All week the Craftin Desert Diva designers have been sharing September release projects and there are a few more days to go!

Today we are sharing the new Craftin Desert Divas Work It Out stamps.

I am so excited about this set because I have been into fitness for over 15 years so these were right up my ally!

I decorated a week in my Happy Planner Fitness Planner.

This spread was a lot of fun to put together. I  love the new Work It Out stamps and know that they will be part of my regular planning. I used several other CDD products and I will list those at the end of this post.

I incorporated a few CDD Digi stamps on this spread, as well. These cute little fitness animals just make me smile!

All stamps and digis were colored on Copic Xpress It paper and cut out. I added them to the page with my Zig glue pen.

Here are few more close ups.

I did add a few stickers from Mambi  here and there for a bit more decoration and functionality.

I completed this spread with an insert of some of my weight training.

There will be a lot more to see if you will join us on Facebook. We have a fabulous even happening HERE.

I will be back later with another spread for another set of stamps we are featuring today. So stay tuned!

Happy Planner Week of 9/5 - 9/11 ~ CDD Daily

Hi There! Today I am here to share a weekly spread from my Happy Planner using products from Craftin Desert Divas.

I may have mentioned this before but I have so much fun decorating my planner! CDD products makes it fun and easy!

This week's spread was super fun to do. My inspiration came from the cute Doodlebug washi tape. It was just the springboard I needed!

I used Copic markers for all of my  images and the CDD stamp svgs really made it so easy to cut out. If you have an electronic die cutting machine you should really give it a try!

Did you see that cute little paper clip? It from Doodlebug Designs, too! You can find it in the CDD Shop.

Here are a few close ups of those fun cactus-es from the Prickly stamp set.

All of the products I used to create this spread is listed at the bottom with direct links.

I hope you found a little inspiration with me today and that you'll use your Craftin Desert Divas stamps and dies to create something fabulous!

Thank you for joining me!

Happy Planner Week of 8/29 - 9/4 featuring Craftin Desert Divas

Hi There! 

I don't know about you all but I am always a tad behind when it comes to planning! This is why you are seeing my spread from last week today!! And, no, I have not started my spread for this week yet.

I may have to re-evaluate the way I do my weekly spreads. I'm thinking it may be more of a memory keeper and create as I go. Decisions, decisions....

Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this spread!! It was super fun to create and I am hooked on this whole planner thing!! I hope you like it!

(Click on the image for a larger view)

Camping was my theme for the week as my husband and I were spending some time at camp with our friends so I went with it!

I used a lot of Craftin Desert Divas products on this spread and I will link those all at the bottom.

I used a combination of, stamps, dies, stickers, and washi tape to get the look I was after.

The little bear is so cute! She comes from CDD Great Outdoors stamps. I colored her with Copic markers. I added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle in a few places: nose, bow and fire. Her nose then go a coating of Glossy Accents.

The tent is included in the Great Outdoors set, as well. You can see here that I kind of ran out of space and my water bottle ended up in the camping scene!! Wasn't exactly where I wanted it but I couldn't fit it anywhere else.

Loved the way that tent turned out!

I hope you enjoyed my layout.
