This is a special week because the Momenta and Scor-Pal teams have created several projects for lots of inspiration and 2 GIVEAWAYS!!! Be sure to check out both blogs for more details on the giveaways and for your chance to win!!!

I am a HUGE cardmaker. And I wanted to share how the Scor-Buddy helps making card bases and envelopes super easy! Here's how to create a card base using the Scor-Buddy
Instructions for any sized card: 
1. Cut cardstock to desired card size 
2. Score along the middle of card. 
3. Fold 
4. Decorate card:)

Here's the card I created using Momenta papers, stickers, and alphas and the card base. 
Cards need envelopes so I created a fun card insert and matching envelope for my next project. I used more Momenta papers, stickers, and vellum sentiments. 
I tried to get the cardstock to stand up after being scored--so it looks a bit crooked, but it's just folded:) 
Here the finished card insert and envelope.
That's it for me today, but be sure to stop by the Scor-Pal blog and Momenta blog for more inspiration!!!  

And don't forget to leave some love on both blogs for your chance to win!!! More details about this week's giveaway can be found HERE! **There are several ways to enter!!!

PDCC #138

Hello, friends:} 
We are starting another color story today over on the  Play Date Cafe blog! This week's colors are: cotton candy, ruby, citrus, dusk. 
This has been another crazy week for me, so I couldn't seem to get my colors to match/etc. I ended up using some papers from two pads that I got from StopandScrap. I also used my Cricut to create a fun summer popsicle shape. I used some ruby glitter and colored some white Basic Grey alphas to match the dusk. **The background of the popsicles looks like it matches the dusk better than my letters--OY! I also added some cherry divine twine {Whisker Graphics}. 
That's it for me....but be sure to stop by the PDCC blog for complete details and prize information! Be sure to link up your creations by Tuesday, July 3rd at 11:59pm EST.

And...the PDCC is having an open design call!!! Be sure to stop by the PDCC blog for more info. I hope you will try out!!! The PDCC team is the BEST DT EVER!!!

Sparkle Creations #82 challenge {post1}

Hello, friends:}

**Please click HERE or scroll up/down for my Paper and Such challenge post!

I've created a fun card for the new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge #82--beach theme! For more information on this challenge, click HERE
I had to pull out my new Paradise Beach papers by Echo Park {available HERE from StopandScrap.com} for my card. It was the perfect match for my SCRS Surfing Oliver image! The waves were cut with my SCAL program. LOVE this card--totally makes me wish it wasn't raining out so I could head to the beach! 
Close-up of my paper piecing.
That's it for me today! Be sure to stop by the SCRS blog for more details and to see the rest of the team's amazing creations!

**Yes, the rumors are AGAIN true! This is my last post as a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps design team member. I am thankful that I was able to join in the fun for the last six months. I am also thankful that I was able to meet Sparkle earlier this year--she is the SWEETEST! LOVE her to pieces! I also love this team--so many talented women! They've got mad coloring skills! SUPER jealous:) And I've got to be honest--I was extremely nervous about joining the team since I don't color!
