Jaded Blossom: Valentine Challenge 2017

Hello Lovers!

I'm super stoked to be entering this challenge and finally getting my crafty mojo back! Here are the rules: Make any (new) Valentine themed treat, card, etc. using your Jaded Blossom Stamps & Dies. Well with my growing JB collection there are endless possibilities. So without further ado, I bring you my JB Valentine Challenge project!

I better explain my unorthodox BFF LOVES vampires. Hence my card. I was going thru my SVG Cutting Files card bases and this coffin tri-fold card just popped up and I was like OMG! I totally am going to make this a valentine's card for my bestie! I know she follows my blog and will probably see it before she gets it but I don't mind this time, because I have a chance to win more JB goodies! LOL!

SVGCF Cut Club Valentine Card Swap

Well hello dere! 

It's almost Valentine's Day, which means my birthday is around the corner. Yikes! So now that my swap partner received my card, I can post it here! Yay! The challenge was to make a Valentine with a cut club file or a file from the SVG Cutting Files store. I have so many files it was hard to choose which one to use.

AND...I received this darling card in the mail on Saturday from Mindy at Paper Creations by Mindy! It's so stinkin' ca-ute!

My mother loved it so much she asked me to replicate it for her friend for Valentine's Day! Can't wait to post my project later this week!

Thanks for stoppin' by! Stay tuned for more fun projects!

Happy Belated New Year!

Well hello there and happy 2017! I've been out of commission the first two weeks of the new year due to a severe case of bronchitis. This past Tuesday was my first day back to work and I'm not quite 100%, more like 93% better. My daughter asked me to make her a "simple" Christmas card for her dad, it's a belated gift card. :P It was nice to get back in the creative flow, my dad left for Portland for work for a month so I can craft all I want when I want! Can I get an AMEN?

I also whipped up a birthday card for a co-worker, but didn't have time to set it up and photograph properly. This guy just makes me giggle!

Jaded Blossom Guest Designer December 2016

Welcome crafty friends! Jen here from Cr8tive Chix with an adorable project! I couldn't be happier to be chosen as a guest designer for Jaded Blossom for the 2nd year! I'm in excellent company and the design team and guest designers know how to craft! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, or Hanukkah if you're still celebrating! 

My Godson/Nephew, Brandon is celebrating his 5th birthday today, Happy Birthday Bran! So I ask my BFF Shannan what does Brandon like? She tells me that Brandon loves Paw Patrol, Thomas the Train, Legos, Pirates and Pete the Cat. Brandon's mom does not like Paw Patrol, so I opted for Pete the Cat to make some fun treats for his classmates. 

Pete the Cat is a children's literary character, according to my BFF "He's like the Cheech & Chong of Children's literature", and "Pete always looks halfway stoned". LOL! So without further ado, I bring you my project.

Here's a close up of the candies (Hershey Kisses Party Bag) 

And a close up of a single treat

Happy Halloween Birthday Shannan!

Well it's that time of year again! My BFF's Halloween Birthday! This year, I have learned how to make a pop and twist card. They are so neat and fun to make (twice). My mom's bad dog Ruby ate my first one. I suppose I should thank her for allowing me to practice, right? LOL! I cannot be the only crafter out there that tries to outdo themselves, can I? Every year I try to make her a card better than the year before. So without further ado, I bring you Shannan's Halloween Birthday card!

Rose Shaker

Today I'm sharing a thank you shaker for our resident floral groundskeeper at work. Patty takes care of the the plants and roses in our wedding garden. Well if you know Vegas weather, we get weeks on end of high temps in the 110's. While Patty was out on leave for surgery the person taking over placed rocks in the rose garden, which caused them to fry the roots and it also makes for upset brides. I called Patty a few weeks ago and asked her to meet with the bride and myself to see what, if anything could be done to get the roses looking like they did in the spring when she signed her contract. After two days of searching local nurseries and some phone calls to her floral contacts, she finally procured some gorgeous roses to save the day and had the rock taken out and replaced with mulch, when they did this we also discovered we had rose grubs. Now everything is pristine for the bride's BIG DAY on Saturday. I made her this pretty shaker card as a way to say thank you!
