Design Team: Birthday Card

This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you my latest creating for Connie Can Crop.

I created this very simple card after printing and fussy cutting an image page from our sponsor, CraftsUprint, from their free files vault.

I pop-up the flowers and added some shimmer with Wink of Stella markers and brushes.

I couldn't believe how easy this card was to make. I love those files, they are so versatile and cute.
Just perfect for my Mom's present.

And don't forget to check out the this month's challenge!!

Design Team: Wallhanging

this is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you my latest creating for Connie Can Crop.

I created a wall-hanging following loosely this month's sketch for the challenge. I used materials from my April Swirlydoos kit (with Blue Fern Studios embellishments and papers, TH Idea-ology, Kaiser Crafts wooden veneers, and some other goodies). I printed out two image pages from our sponsors, CraftsUprint, from their free files vault for the main focus.

I was dying to try to make a embroidery loop project, after weeing Connie's from last year.  Thus, when I saw this kit, I was waiting impatiently to use it in a project. A closer look to the main embroidery loop part:

I made this wall-hanging for my Mom's birthday. I really hope she'll like it, what do you think? ;-)
For a quick guide, I made a Snap Guide here
I forgot to add the 3D glue dots, which I used a lot.
Some close-ups:

My favorite part:

Here is my project for this fun challenge:

I created this card using one of the digital file from this moth's sponsor: Crafts U Print, called Sunset Pond and Cream Roses. These images are fun to work with because the can be decoupage into several layers 3D images.

Here are my supplies:

With the Kaiser Crafts papers cut into the scallop circles. and some distressing of the resist paper circle...

I added some stickles to the rose and violets, and some liquid pearls to their centers.

A closer look to the layers:

I used one of the sentiments from this file.

Closer look to the rose:

Again to the layers from a different angle:

This is how it looks inside:
I left the inside blank to add either more cardstock and more sentiments when I am ready to use this card.

I hope you enjoyed this fun sketch and decide to join the challenge.
Have a crafty week,

For this project, I decided to try to finish a minialbum, I've started last year for the Summer Fun Bloghop...  LOL talking about procrastinating LOL
My plan was to finish it for this hop, well, I just manage to finish the back-cover finally...
I saw this digital images for the Beach Crab set from this month's sponsor and decided to use it here:

I uploaded the images in Design Space and tried to print & cut, but couldn't get my explorer to collaborate and cut:

So, I ended up fussy cutting them and made a collage with the this printed Galveston page, a cardboard addition from Heart of Texas, and some cabochons from Connie's ebay store. I added some rock candy to the cardboard word and some glitter to the CDD cuts, as well as some distressing with goldrush CTMH ink:

The Port Bolivar lighthouse is also a cut from the Heart of Texas minialbum kit.

I added some images I'd bought too:

The crab is supposed to be holding the sign LOL. cute image
