PTI Stampafaire Meet and Greet & Make it Monday!


Good evening friends! I'm popping in with my Papertrey Ink Meet and Greet post :)  I'm donning my lovely Stampafaire apron from last year and my Make it Monday card I made while waiting for the festivities to begin! I've used the heart cover plate to make this fun heart grid :)


I can't wait for all the fun to begin!  See you tomorrow!


Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

Hi friends!  This is my card for the Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge Blog Hop.  Easy enough with all the fabulous dies out there!  I’ve created a Shaker Card as well as a little nod to Paulina’s shaker love and the last PPP blog hop!  It also meant I got to use my PTI Shakers and Sprinkles kit again!  Don’t you love those sprinkles?!  They look exactly like the real ones! I’ve used a die for the white frame, one for the word “Sprinkled” and then the matching dies for the flowers and leaves.  Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments!  I can’t wait to see everyone’s take on this fun hop!

Curtain Call Reminder

wishingyoumaureenplut

There is still time to join us for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Tropical Trip!  You have until August 25th at 8:00 AM CDT to be inspired and share your project!

When I made my card for this challenge, I had some extra embossing paste so I made this sweet little tag as well :)  My PTI circle scribbles dies arrived and I love tucking them behind a sentiment :)  The vellum leaves were die cut with Verve’s Sprightly Sprigs Die Set .  This fabulous idea came from Debby Hughes :)  Head over to the Curtain Call Inspiration blog for more samples and then join in the fun if you haven’t already :)  Have a great day!

Teachers Make Little Ones Count

Hi everyone!  I’m back today with a fun card inspired by the current Viva La Verve sketch and inspiration photo.

I can’t resist anything chalkboard! LOL  I had this frame cut from ABC chalkboard paper in my little (read BIG) scrap pile and thought it was the perfect time to bring it out!  It was a no brainer that I’d be using Verve’s Teachers Count and matching Apples Die Set

Want to win some Verve bucks?  Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for all the details and then join in the fun!  Thanks for visiting!

You Are Just 2 Sweet!

2sweetmaureenplut

Hi everyone!  It’s kind of serendipitous that the current PTI Make it Monday has to do with embossing paste!  My newfound love of mixed media means that I have already been playing around with it!  I added some pink and teal ink to a couple of batches, hoping for an ombre look, but it didn’t quite turn out.

Good thing I decided to use the left over paste to make some other pieces.  The tag won out when I went to make a card and then I turned all the other heart designs into tags too! LOL  When in doubt, make a tag!  I’m also using an older but brand new to me PTI stamp set.  I finally got it!  I love the use of numbers in this Tagged Sentiment set. Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

lifesadventuremaureenplut

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

I’ve been dabbling in and learning about mixed media and art journaling this summer!  I thought I’d start on a smaller canvas in the form of a card front.  I used some Dylusions sprays and some stencils to create my background inspired by the colours and numbers in the photo.  I added an arrow paper clip and a “travel” inspired quote that I cut up into individual panels.
