My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday!

Don't forget about GABY ABBY CHALLENGES WITH SEI!! You can even combine it with other challenges!! 

So, my dear Emma took a break last week from her challenges due to some super fun blog hops and other commitments! But, she's back and well, frankly by now, well.... you know I am her #1 fan!, so I am loving my Thursday!! 

As soon as I heard about the challenge I got my Gypsy out and started looking at all the awesome images Create a Critter has! It is one of my favorite ones (my BFF gave it to me as a gift!). Here is what I came up with for the challenge.

So here is the list of what I used:

DCWV The Autumn Splendor Stack
Distress Ink in walnut
Bling is from Walmart
Recollections cardstock
Scrappy Mom's Stamps
Peachy Keen Stamps
Create a Critter Cart

I hope you like what you see!!!

Playing with Serenade Week 4

Reminder: If you want to enter GABY ABBY CHALLENGES WITH SEI click HERE! We have an awesome 12x12 SEI Paper Assortment from their new collection!!!

Today I have for you another Serenade project!!! Aren't you loving all that can be done with this one cart?!?!?! So today it was my turn to showcase image #22, one of the flowers. I learned a technique from Luzma. I found her blog thru BoBunny, she is one of their designers. Anyways, I have mentioned her a couple of times, I just LOVE everything she does!

She even sent me the pictures she had on how to do the flowers; which I will share with you but will give her all the credit! And... I ask of you a little favor... If you use her technique can you go to her blog and give her a shout out? Just let her know Abby sent you! :)

So, I present to you my Serenade card:

I used the following for this card:

Recollections white cardstock
Martha Stewart Patterned Paper
Tim Holtz Distress ink in Walnut
Buttons from collection
Cuttlebug-- name?? hmm 
Scrappy Mom's Stamps
Ribbon from Walmart

Now, don't forget to go take a look at the other Serenade ladies!! They created awesome projects!!!

MPS Imagine Challenge

Don't forget that Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 1 is going on right now!!!! Click HERE to enter that challenge!!! You have to use the colors orange, purple and black and do any project you wish!!!!

So, before I go on I have to tell you that I have officially named my Imagine!! Yes, her name is "Friducha" why? Well, I admire a Mexican artist called Frida Kahlo, her paintings are just beautiful the art that came out of her was just astonishing! Well, her nickname was "Friducha" and that's why I named her that! 

Well, as I was playing with Friducha, I remembered that Robyn had a challenge going on for the I. 

One thing I thought about Friducha was that I wasn't just going to play with her... the things that I created had to be for a purpose, so I present to you my very first creation!!! 

What do you think? 

I used the following:
Recollections White Cardstock 
Best Friends Cricut Imagine Cart

Don't forget that I live for your comments!!!

Gaby Abby Challenges with SEI Week 1

Hello my dear followers and viewers!! Today is the day!!! The first of our challenges featuring our awesome sponsor SEI!!! 

We have some great prices for you and some exciting themes for the next weeks!
This week's theme is a 

Color Challenge

Use the colors ORANGE, PURPLE, and BLACK 
anyway you wish!

To qualify for this giveaway, you have to make sure:
** Your project has to be made for this challenge
** You must use the 3 colors, any shade you like!
** Only one entry per person
**You have until Sunday, October 10th 6pm PST

So, without further ado I present to you my project!!

I decided to make this 2 page LO using ONLY SEI paper and embellishments. I wanted to make sure that people that didn't have cutting machines could do this LO too. 

I am a very visual person and too many instructions make me dizzy ;) So I wrote measurements on the picture itself. I hope it helps! I have assigned letters to each different pattern paper to help you even more!

Here is what I used:
*Spooks Assortment Pack 12x12
(The pack comes with borders and letters!!)
*Spooks Sparkling die-cut accents
(ghosts are from die cut pack)
*Halloween Stickers
(journaling oval)
*Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut
*Celebration Ribbon from Michaels

The letters assigned to pattern paper:
A- Boo
B- Gasp!
C- Bwa-ha-ha
D- Growl
E- Screech
F- Yikes!

Don't you love those names!! 
I hope this idea helps you re-create this 2 page LO with easiness. 

Don't forget that these challenges are called Gaby Abby!!
Hop on over to my BFF and take a look at her creation!!!
