August Anything Goes Challenge

Hi everyone, Doris here with a brand
new challenge from Crafting by Designs.
We're starting our favorite August challenge
a few days early because it's
HUGE and we have 3 wonderful sponsors.
Here are a few of my projects to
give you a little inspiration:
using Flower Birds from Bugaboo Stamps
using Syrena from Sassy Studio Designs
using Christmas Cinderella from Sassy Studio Designs 
using Blossoms 1 from Ike's Art
I had so much fun making these projects, especially the last one from Ike's Art.
I used some silver metalic Bazzill cardstock and ran it
thru the Big Shot with a houndstooth embossing folder.  I also
used some white Wink of Stella on the image and wanted
to keep the whole project white/black/silver.
The August Anything Goes challenge will be
open until August 25, so come join us by entering your project

Use those Dies

Hi everyone, Doris here with a brand new challenge at
Crafting by Designs
This week our challenge is to Use Dies in your projects

Dust off that Cuttlebug/Big Shot/Cricuit and Silhouette
machines, dig out the thin dies and show us what you can do. 
Electronic die cuts are welcome too. I love the dimension dies add to cards. 
You can just use one and keep it CAS or use fifteen.

Oak Pond Creations gave the design team
some of their awesome images to play with and will award one winner their
choice of 3 digital images from their store. 
Here's my little project using Happy Butterfly
I used three die cuts on this project and did some paper piecing
on the butterfly wings.
