Super Cute Planner Love!!

Hi Friends!
It’s Paula here to share my planner layout for this week with you.
I am using my MAMBI Happy Planner to plan out my week for my video, design team, and IG postings so I wanted to share how I am using some of the awesome planner items in The Crafty Pickle shop!

I want my planner to be functional first and foremost but I also want it to be pretty and fun! First off I am loving the large planner clip to mark my page. It is so cute and functional! For this week’s layout I used the gold glitter washi to add some glitz and glam. I used some of the Fruity Pebbles Relish Mix and Amy Tangerine vellum hearts which go perfect with the colors for September in the planner. I also used some of the Sticky Pickle Spots as bullet points for my posting reminders. And finally I used some Close To My Heart stamps to make the layout fun!

I am trying to work on a few more pages in the Disneyland album that I and working on for my nieces  and thought the Snapshot Memories Stamps    with the Magic, Life Captured and the washi tape stamp would look so cool embossed with embossing powder and add a little gold to the page …here is a link to the Princess Gold embossing powder HERE double pageAnd then this is the left side of the page with the kids hugging Anna and she is talking to them ..so sweet with my favorite flair pop of color, and then this stamp “The Stuff that Life is made of with some fun Relish also!!!

It’s Almost Time for Pumpkin Spice!

I am sad to see summer come to a close in New York as fall makes its way in, but nevertheless it’s coming…my parents are visiting from North Carolina and we even made a trip to the apple orchard for cider donuts already, and I had to buy fleece pajamas for my 17 month old because our evenings and mornings are getting chilly.  Chilly weather is perfect for warm beverages–especially a hot cup of coffee!  So of course to celebrate Pumpkin Spice season and to play with my new Fuse tool and my new “Treats of Friendship” stamps from Close To My Heart, I had to make a coffee Project Life shaker card!  Here is a link to the shop to order the stamps HERE
fallcoffee2

I stamped the coffee cup on 3 different patterned papers and cut out the pieces to layer them together for a fun fall to-go cup.  Then I stamped the sentiment “I like you a latte” on my background paper.  I inked just the first part of the sentiment and stamped it, and then inked and stamped the word “latte” into the heart.  Clear stamps are the best for tricks like that!  I created my shaker pocket with my fuse tool and used coppery orange leaf confetti and real coffee grounds inside!  Yum!

Happy Birthday Card

Hi friends! Joann here today, thank you so much for stopping by!

Today I am sharing a card using the new TCP Gold Foil Sentiments Flair!

Isn’t this set GORGEOUS!?!? I love it and you will definitely see me using most if not all of these flairs to create cards! Not only are they fabulous for cards but placing them on tags or small gifts are other great ways to use them.

With all that being said, here is my card using this set

I used the CTMH Artistry Cartridge to cute my cake, candles and cake stand. I then took my flair and placed it on a foiled scalloped circle and mounted this piece right to my cake, using this as my sentiment for my card.

I finished off the card by adding A LOT of TCP Rock Candy Relish Mix! This card came together so nice and quickly, especially that I didn’t have to stamp anything!  Please don’t forget to stop by the shop and check out all of the AWESOMENESS that’s there!

I hope you enjoyed this card, and before I let you go I would like to mention that I am having a fun GIVEAWAY over on my Instagram page! Taniesa over at The Crafty Pickle has been so SUPER SWEET in sponsoring this giveaway! Let me tell you this couldn’t have come at a better time because her ETSY shop just got stocked!

Super Sweet Wedding Card!!!

Happy Tuesday!
Joann here today sharing a wedding card that I made using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge!
When this cartridge came out I fell in love with it. It has so many great cuts, which include tons of 3D items, boxes, labels, cards with envelopes, phrases and much more (check out the handbook here).  I cut the frame (pg. 60) and the phrase (pg. 61) from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.
I cut both images twice, once out of black and once out of a light grey cardstock to help add a little shadow. I also cut a few stripes of pattern paper to add to the left side of the card and a stripe of CTMH Cotton Candy cardstock to help add some color.
I finished my card by adding a heart flair from TCP Watercolor Hearts and some TCP Something Shiny sequins.
That is my card for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to stop by the shop to take a look and pick up some goodies!

Baby Shower Favor

Baby Shower Favor

Hi Joann here today, thanks for joining me!

Today I am sharing a cute little baby shower favor that I made using the CTMH Artiste Cartridge!

Isn’t this box adorable and wouldn’t it also be great as an Easter Box to fill with treats for kids?!?!  To decorate my box I cut a 1 3/4 circle stamped an image using the CTMH-Holiday Tags stamp set and customized it with the due date using YES Months set for my month and finished it off with some scattered sequins.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

Using the CTMH Artiste cartridge

Hi, Joann here. Thanks for stopping by! Today I have a quick and easy thank you card using the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.

I cut several of the diamond image (pg. 49) out of some different colored card stock and clear embossed a few of them using the Honeycomb Flair to add some texture. I randomly placed them to create a fun background for my card. I then cut “Thanks” (pg. 65) for my sentiment, 4 times and stacked them on top of one another to add dimension and placed it on top of  the banner (pg. 35) in which was cut from vellum.

I finished off my card by adding a few adhesive pearls. That’s it, hope you liked it and as always, thanks for stopping by!

30 Day Color Challenge: Day 1 (officially)

Hi Crafty Friends!

Yesterday I posted that I was taking TheDailyMarker’s 30 day color challenge to complete 30 handmade project life cards. Well I guess I was a little excited and the official start date is TODAY…. so I will end up doing 31 cards during this challenge.

30 day marker challenge from TheDailyMarker.com

For today’s Project life card I am using two different Close To My Heart stamp sets. The first is the CTMH Stamp of the month : Choose Happy, the second set is Your own kind of wonderful. I was so excited to use the new SOTM that this was a perfect time to break it out. This design would work fantastic on a card as well and you could put pretty much anything in the frames.

choose happyyourownkindofwonderfulHere is the PL card that I created.

PL card using CTMH March SOTM: Choose Happy @Thecraftypickle.com

I stamped the frame with Memento black ink and then masked off the frame leaving the center open to stamp the butterflies. I used Copic markers to color in the large butterfly and then covered with CTMH Liquid Glass. Once everything was dry, I cut out the frame and used foam adhesive to pop it up on top of another framed stamped image on a 3×4 card.
