HIMCR DT #113 - Freestyle!

It's a free style week.  We got the chance to use a Digi Stamp from Sweet n Sassy Stamps.  I made this card:

So cute.

My kids also wanted to color in this digi and I let them.  This is what a 3 & 4 year old created:

Have a great week!

I would love to see where your creativity happens.  Please go back to Laurie's HIMCR blog and leave a comment.

Young sympathy card

On Facebook I heard about a 5 year old girl whose father passed away last week and she didn't understand why everyone but her was getting a sympathy card.  I immediately made one.

I used the Create a Critter 2 cartridge with some DCWV paper and Scrappy Moms Stamps.

I hope this makes the young girl feel noticed and loved.


Turns out our new bunny is a climber.  Here is the first time he was on the stairs.

I used the ! as Is.  I don't know why all the layouts of Furball end up with so many squares.

New heights

I bought the kids some stools.  This led to them reaching new heights, literally.  When I bought them, I didn't know they'd be able reach the upper cabinets with the stools.

It's a simpler layout, but I really wanted the picture to stand out.  I love this photo.

HIMCR DT #112 - Masculine Birthday Card! Or Scrap a Man's Birthday

For this week's challenge I made a card to give to my husband on his next birthday.

It has Fancy Pants paper, ribbon and a stamped sentiment.

I look forward to seeing your masculine cards this week at HIMCR.

Quick card

I found out a good friend was leaving my husband's office.  So I quickly made this card so my husband could give it to him before he leaves.

I think it hits the spot for what I/we needed.

HIMCR DT #111 - Thread / Stitching

This layout took months to make because I had to wait for all the events to occur so I could take the pictures!

I hope you can follow all the calendar dates to the coordinating photos via the thread.  I also used Best Creation Inc paper, brads and Basic Grey alphas.

I would like to see your thread/stitching projects too.  Please link them to HIMCR this week.

This week, my scraps project is this layout.

After washing my car, my son wanted to wash his car.

All the items are scraps or things I've owned a long time.  The 's' is a trimmed '8.'  I used Bella Blvd and Recollections paper, ribbon, Thickers and brads.

Lets see what you create with scraps this week.  Link your project to HIMCR.

Grilling is good!

Each summer at my parents house, they make 2 of my favorite foods on the grill.

Grilled Shrimp with dipping sauces

and Beer Can Chicken

Best Creation Inc is where all the grilling paper is from.  I also used brads and LilyBee alphas on each layout.

HIMCR DT #109 - Cherry Cobler (deep red), Early Espresso (dark brown), Marina Mist (ocean blue)

Hi everyone!  This week at HIMCR is a color challenge.  I love trying new combos.  I made a recipe card.

I plan to put a cupcake recipe on the card.  I copied the layout from an actual recipe card.  I used Create a Critter cartridge, Scrappy Moms stamp, and ink. 

I can't wait to see what you do with these colors after you link them to HIMCR this week.
