You're So Sweet with The Cutting Cafe and Giveaway

Good morning crafty friends! The Cutting Cafe is having a blog hop today. The design team was able to choose any file they wanted to work with AND GUESS WHAT?!?! You can win the file that we chose to work with! All you have to do is follow each blog and leave a comment. The winner will be drawn at random. 

I chose to work with the Sweet Treats Shaped Cards and Shaker Set. The set comes with 4 different Sweet Treat Shaped Cards and sentiments! 

I made the banana split shaped card. Each piece was cut out with my Cricut Maker. If you do not have a cutting machine, that's ok! The files come in PDF format also. 

Here is a line up of the rest of the design team. Make sure to leave a comment on their posts as well as this one. That will raise your chances of winning! 

You are here.  

Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you enjoy hopping with us at The Cutting Cafe

La-La Land Crafts June 2018 Club Kit Release

Good morning, crafty friends! Today is the release of the June 2018 La-La Land Crafts Club Kit! Are you ready to see the something sew stinking cute you'll have to have it right away?!?! Here we go! 

Sew cute right!?! This is my favorite Club Kit this far! I know, I say that every month, but the Club Kits just keep getting cuter and cuter. 

These stamps and dies are sew dang adorable! I am thinking of a bunch of different ways to play with that dress die. And those scissors! So stinking tiny! I used shiny silver cardstock to cut them out. They looks just like sewing scissors my grandma used to use. 

If you decide you HAVE to have June 2018's Club Kit, you have between today (June 16th) and Tomorrow (June 17th) to place your order. Orders placed after June 17th will receive July 2018 La-La Land Crafts Club Kit. I promise you, that one will be amazing as well! I haven't seen anything from the kit yet, but La-La Land Crafts NEVER disappoints!

La-La Land Crafts June 2018 NEW RELEASE

Hi everyone! Are you ready for a HUGE La-La Land Crafts NEW RELEASE?!?! This release is so big that I will be posting new projects made with new items over the next three days. Yes, you read that right...the next THREE DAYS! 
You will be in love with this release if you like the beach, mermaids and ocean critters. There's also a brand new item being introduced to the La-La Land Crafts online store...STENCILS!!  
In this release, there is 9 new red rubber stamps, 3 new clear stamp sets, 2 new background stamps, 3 new layering stencil sets, and 13 new dies. 
Are you itching for me to get to the new items? Okay, I won't keep you waiting any longer. 

First, we have some new clear rubber cling stamp critters. There are 3 new sets of critters. 

Aren't they the absolute cutest?!? 

Next we have two new background stamp sets. 

These two background stamps are $27.99 regular price. For a limited time you can get BOTH BACKGROUND SETS for $49.99 (plus shipping).


These STENCILS are awesome! They are thick plastic. Thick enough some of the design team can emboss with them. I know a cuddle bug works well for that. I, however, have a Cut 'n' Boss. It did not work well for embossing with the stencils. I am going to play around with it a bit more and see if I can get it to work though. I will report back =)

I am excited to use these STENCILS for mixed media projects. Mixed media cards are my favorite! 

For you red rubber stamp lovers, there is NINE new ones! All beach or vacation themed. 

Tell me, which is your favorite!?! I am in love with Summer Dress Molli. She's just gorgeous and I love her long flowing hair. 

Last but not least...the new DIES

La-La Land Crafts really above and beyond with these new dies. Every one of them are a must have! They are all filled with tiny details. I mean, they even made a ship in a bottle die! How cool is that!?!

Ok, on to the projects that I am sharing for today...

Reneabouquets June 2018 Textured Themed Mood Board Challenge

Good morning friends! It is time for a new Mood Board Challenge! For June, we are focusing on textures. And of course, there will be a gorgeous prize package, provided by Reneabouquets, given to one lucky random winner.

Adding textures to projects can be so much fun and there are so many different ways to do it! 

Here is a Breast Cancer card that I made for inspiration. What kind of textures do you see? 

I added texture in the way of distressed paper, glitter glass, and lace. 

There is also lots of dimension in this card. I love creating cards with lots of dimension. It does make them a little more tricky to mail, however. 

I added color to the Beautiful Board Hot Air Balloon with Distress Inks. 

A family member texted me a few days ago and asked me to make a card for another family member that has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Right around that time Renea had released this gorgeous Hot Air Balloon. To me the Hot Air Balloon symbolizes a journey. This family member just being diagnosed with Breast Cancer is beginning a very unexpected journey in her life.  I HAD to use the Hot Air Balloon to create the Breast Cancer card. 

I am so glad I did. It turned out so beautifully! 

Take a look below to see all the Reneabouquets items I used. There's a ton of them =) 

OK! On to the June Mood Board Challenge! Take a look at all these gorgeous textures!!!

I created the mood board using pictures that Renea took while she was out and about one day. 

Challenge Rules

1. Create a project (on or off the page) that features ANY product carried in the store or the Renebouquets Etsy Shop 

2. Your project can be any style.

(Drawing is done on an unedited video to ensure fairness) 

4. Challenge is open to U.S. Residents and International

5. Have fun!

My favorite part of this post...sharing the BEAUTIFUL prize package! 

You will be able to add texture to project for months to come with this amazing prize package!
