CottageCutz Hawaiian Latch Card

Hello everyone, today I have a Latch card to share with you all. I made this card using CottageCutz Tropical Release and for Splitcoaststampers Latch card challenge.
My card was super easy and fun to make.
I used the Darling CottageCutz Hula Owl, Tiki Hut, and flower for this card. All were cut using white card stock, and then colored with copics. The eyes for the owl were done using the Black viva pearl pen. I really enjoyed making my card for SCS challenge, and this is one super fun fold!
Ribbon used is from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and I did add some random buttons, and half backed pearls. Sewing was done on the Basicgrey design paper as well to embellish my card.

Here it is open.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day!

Tropical Happy Fish

Hello everyone,
Today its Cheryl here with a card I made using the super sweet CottageCutz Happy Fish 1 , and Happy Fish 2 from the Scrapping Cottage New Tropical Release.
Todays card was designed for SCS challenge Free for all, we are to use the word JUNE for our recipe recipe, so I used the letters for each items below.
J=June card(1 of them)
U=Underwater fun
N=Neon Fish
E=Echo Park Design Paper/Embellishment (Double Points??) hehehehe
I cut both of the CottageCutz fish using white card stock, and I flipped the 1 fish so it was facing the other fish. I thought it would be cute that way.
  • Fish are airbrushed using copics-B29,R39,YR09,YG05,RV23,Y08
  • For the water I used-BG15,B04BG72,BG23

May Arts DT Call Submission/Video

Hello everyone,
I'm super EXCITED to be able to apply to May Arts DT Call. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE all the ribbons, lace, and trim they carry. Today I am going to share a few projects I made using their BEAUTIFUL Ribbons, Silk , Lace , Pom Pom Trim and other fun stuff they have. The 3 projects were made for the DT Call, and all others are ones I have made in the past, just to show my design style. Thank you for the chance to apply and I absolutely LOVE working with Ribbon!! :)

For this project it is a Page from a Mini Album I'm currently working on for my Mom for her Birthday, and I used the Beautiful Silk Ribbon from May Arts to create my flowers. I also did a Video Tutorial that you can view if interested in making these super fun flowers. Love making them!!!

Desktop Calendar
I made the Month of August for this. I already have a few months done from last year, and will just update my calendar on them. The Month of August is a special month, it was my Grandma's Birthday month, and I added her photo to this month :)
Ribbons used
Pom Pom Trim
Ruffled Edge Trim
Seam Binding
Thickers/flower brads

Normally I will have 2 months at a time on this calendar, since its chunky....hehehehe But it works, and I love seeing the photo's on them!

Here you can see the calendar, and the photo, so its so nice to have this. Its almost like having a mini album, but being able to view your calendar as well.
