The New Martha Stewart Score Board is available for purchase from 7KidsCollegeFund. I own this board and love it. It allows you to score every 1/8". On the board there are directions on how to make envelopes and an evelope tool attached. This board is unusual because there is storage built into the board to hold the scoring tool and the envelope tool. Possibly, what I like the best is that I have not cut any of my paper when I am scoring. With my other board I wasted alot of paper due to having my paper be cut by the inboard scoring surface. The Martha Stewart Score Board is 12x12 and allows for small project as well as bigger projects such as large boxes. It is a very economical alternative and sells at 7Kids for less than the craft stores and with no tax:) Can't say enough nice things about 7Kids, wonderful products, great shipping and primo customer service. Check it out:)

So get your PARTY HATS on and get ready for a silly, wacky and wild BIRTHDAY MONTH

Welcome to the Twisted Thursday Challenge from Shirleys2Girls. The challenge this week is to make a party invitation/ABC project the twist is to use the word party or celebrate in your project. This image is from the upcoming "Birthday Bash" release.

The upcoming Birthday Bash images are so fun! I colored my image with Copic markers and added Stickles and rhinestones to bling it up! I used American Crafts DP and cardstock and an acrylic flower from my stash. I modified a Bo Bunny Circle party favor box to add to my box. I put in a background paper with the sentiment "celebrate". Sentiments come with the images wich is another wonderful thing about purchasing your digi stamps from S2G. Lots of sewing for definition of the box background and the side panels. I used the Sketch from 2sketches4you and a challenge from Copic Creations for my box. The Copic Creations challenge was to use feather blending. I used feather blending on my cat to make it a calico:)

Make sure to stop by the store and check out all the new images. But wait, also stop in to all the DT for some Celebration inspiration!

PIxie Dust Studio New Release "Wildflowers"

Wow, the new relase from Pixie Dust Studios is fantastic. The release is called Wildflowers. Oh, are these little images ever sweet! I picked the Safari Pixie image and the Flower Cart image and colored them with Copic Markers. I added ribbon, a heart brad, and an opague white pen to hightlight my images. I used K&Co. design paper and PTI cardstock. I cut out my flower cart image with using the Large Basic Circle Spellbinder and Large Basic Circle Scallop. Make sure to take a look at the Pixie Dust Studio Blog and take a look at all the wonderful images in the store. Also, make sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they created. With a little magic and pixie dust anything is possible.

Welcome to the new members of the Pixie Dust Studio Design Team. They are super talented! I am excited to work with them all.

I made my card using the uber cute Genie from Pixie Dust Studios. I colored her with Copic Markers and added a white opague pen for highlights. DP is from K&Co and cardstock is from Bazzil and PTI. I used a Martha Stewart border punch for my card and the Spellbinders classic and scalloped hearts for my heart die punches. I added lots of Stickles and rhinestones for bling. Machine stitching was added to define the card.
You never know what a little magic and pixie dust can do!!!

I used this week's sketch from Card Patterns for inspiration and also was able to participate in the Dare U to Digistamp challenge using hearts.

Sassy Studio Design New Release Alice in Sassyland

I am so excited about this new release. The new Alice in Wonderland inspired images from Sassy Studio Design are FANTASTIC! I used the "Mad Hatter" image. Isn't it so SASSY?
I colored her with Copic Markers and added lots of Stickles and rhinestones for Bling. The DP is from K&Co. and the cardstock is from Martha Stewart and PTI. I admit, I do not use Cricut machine enough. I really think that the die cuts I made from my Cricut really add something special to the piece. I used the "From my Kitchen" cartridge.

I have to give credit to Tammy for the idea for this tea box. I used her inspiring project to design and create my own! Thank you Tammy!

It is not often that I make something for myself. But, I had to make this tea box to sit on my counter. Now when my Mom comes over she will not have to ask me "where do you keep your tea?".

I love this image so much I could not stop! I made a card also. I used the new Sugar Rush paper from Basic Grey and paired it with PTI and Bazzil cardstock. I added Stickles and rhinestones. My Mad Hatter is colored with Copic Markers. Detailing was added by using machine stitching. I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch for inspiration for my card.

Remember to come to our release party that begins 5:00pm PST. To get the link to the party go to the Sassy Studio Design Blog. The link does not become active until 5:00 p.m. During the new release party you can talk to the DT and play Alice in Sassyland Bingo for a chance to win images. I'm looking forward to chatting with you all. I know you will love the new release...Welcome to Sassyland!

Make sure you stop by all the Design Team member's blogs and check out all the fabulous projects they created with the new release images from Sassy Studio Design!
