You Make Me So HAPPY!

Hi Crafty Friends!

   Today we have the talented, Elodie, back up on the blog with another beautiful mixed media layout. I LOVE her style! Take a look.

Hello friends!

Today I want to show you another layout made with TCP button flair. For this page I used soft colors. I used some die cuts that I made with my die cutting machine, and as always I used stencils with modeling paste and inks.

Crisp and Cool layout by designer, Cathy!

Hi Everyone!

 I hope you are all recovering nicely from turkey overload and shopping madness. Today we have a beautiful layout to share by design team member, Cathy! Take a look!

Hi everyone, Cathy here with a layout I created using awesome products from The Crafty Pickle!  My layout was inspired by one I saw created by Lilith Eeckels.  I loved the way she cut the large woods paper into 3rds to create interest and divide up the image.  From there I used a variety of embellishments, including flair badges and sequins from the The Crafty Pickle and stamps from Close to my Heart.  I just love how it turned out and I am so happy with my products from The Crafty Pickle.  The flair badges are just fantastic and who doesn’t love sequins right?

 

 

Beautiful work, Cathy. Love it!
Happy Crafting!

Thankful Cards with designer, Kristin!

Hi Crafty Friends!
  Today, TCP Designer, Kristin, has some adorable handmade pocket cards she is sharing perfect for this season. Take a look!  
 
Hi Kristin here with my first blog post for The Crafty Pickle and I thought that this “Thankful Heart” stamps set just screamer for me to make some pocket pages cards for the kids to write what they were “Thankful” for this year!!
On the top left hand corner cards I thought that I would put a 5X7 picture of my family and I would slide it under the “Thankful Heart” stamped sentiment, then on the cards the kids would write over the wood grain embossing folders from Close to my Heart and all the different techniques I tried with the 3 different leafs stamps that were in the Thankful Heart stamp set, and then I added the arrow button flair set on the cards for you to follow your eyes around the layout!!!

 

 And then here are the close-ups:

 


Product I used:
Black  & Brown Stazon
Ranger White Super Fine Embossing Powder
Paper Trimmer, Foam Mat & Corner Rounder

Thank you for looking at my work!!

Thanks Kristin, adorable cards!!!

Bring on the Polar Bears!

Hi Everyone! 

  Today, design team member Julie has some great inspiration using the adorable Polar Bear Holiday stamp set from Close To My Heart! Take a look!

Hello!
Today had to show a series of CAS-cards that I made ​​for  The Crafty Pickle .
Next will be a lot of pictures and a little bit of English text, which gives me difficulty, still) Happy viewing and winter CAS-inspiration!
***
Hello!
Today I want to show you my winter card series with the cutest polar bears!
These stamps are very good and these bears are absolutely gorgeous!
For my first card I used the bear on the sledge. I coloured the scarf with watercolor pencils, stamped the sentiment inside of the card and made a round window to see it. I love the beautiful golden stars – it’s a perfect little accent.
For the second card I made the background using the snowflake stamp from the set. Little tiny snowflake looks great! I also create the snowdrifts and embossed it. I think that the bear wearing hood is my favorite!
 And my third card has silver heat embossing. Snowflakes looks very beautiful, especially in the sunshine. Here, I coloured the bear’s sweaters using Distress Ink and water.
I hope this helps you get in a wintry holiday mood!
***
That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed my card series)
Have a nice day!
-Julie

It’s PSL season!

Hi there, its Treasa here today to share a Project Life card that I made using some of the new Autumn sequin mix in The Crafty Pickle shop and a new flair badge that Taniesa created for wonderful fall season. I must confess that I absolutely love the fall, mostly because of the beautiful trees and the cooler weather but also because its “Pumpkin Season” and I love anything pumpkin and one of my most favorites are Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. These things are fabulous and its like getting a mouthful of fall.
As soon as I received the Autumnsequin mix and thePSl flair I knew I had to create a Project Life card to document my love of PSL.

Here is a close up of that wonderful PSL flair and some of the sequins from the Autumn mix.

I also used some of the paper from the Close to my Heart Pathfinding line. This collection is so perfect for fall and coordinates so well with the Cozy Fall button flairs in the shop. You can also find the Pathfinding collection in Taniesa’s CTMH shop here.

Here’s one last look at the gorgeous Autumn sequin mix in the shop.

Thank you for stopping by and go check out The Crafty Pickle shop and blog.
