  Design Team: Happy Birthday Card

Pin It
This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you my latest creating for Connie Can Crop.

I created this very simple card after printing and fussy cutting an image page from our sponsor, CraftsUprint, from their free files vault.

I pop-up the flowers and added some shimmer with Wink of Stella markers and brushes.

I couldn't believe how easy this card was to make. I love those files, they are so versatile and cute.
Just perfect for my Mom's present.

And don't forget to check out the this month's challenge!!

  YouTube Tuesday -Selling through CraftsUPrint

Pin It

Hi folks!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards sharing another YouTube video.  What did we ever do before YouTube?

In the last YouTube video, we shared a tutorial from one of the many designers on CraftsUPrint, our sponsor this month.   

Today, I wanted to share with you an opportunity CUP provides for crafters to sell their digital designs, cut files and finished products with no selling fee—you keep 100% of the sale.  But I’ll let the video tell you more about it:

Many of us have toyed with the idea of selling our handcrafted items, but have been a bit confused over how to go about it, where to sell your items and how much to ask for them.  Most outlets have listing fees, table fees, percentage of sales fees and it makes one wonder if it's really worth it.  

If that describes you and you ever wanted to experiment with selling your work, why not start here and learn the ropes without it costing you a dime.

Don't forget our sketch challenge this month.  One lucky winner, picked at random, will receive a digital CD from CraftsUPrint.  Here's the sketch and here's where you can link your entree.  Plus we will pick our three favorites and you get a badge for your blog or social bragging rights.

 You have until August 31st at 11:59 pm PST to enter, so get into that craft space and create something!

  Please don't feed the bears! PCW Day

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!
This is Connie with Connie Can Crop and I am super excited to be posting as a designer for Paper Crafting World. I am so excited to be able to share these adorable cut and digital files with you.

I love Camping and Hiking so this cute layout featuring some adorable black bears is bringing on the summer fun! For this layout I used Paper Crafting World's The Great Outdoors Black Bear Set. This file is available for only $4.99 in the PCW shop. But you can get it for 50% off using PCW50 at check out!

 I used my Cricut Explore to cut the all my pieces and inked the edges!!
I also decided to add a title (Don't feed the bears) from my Cricut files (It is not included with the cut file).

I finished off this layout off with some basic borders in fun prints, lots of pop dots, and a cute bow! Perfect for a day in the wilderness!!

Be sure to stop by Paper Crafting World and see all the great files waiting for you! 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Design Day ~ Baby Girl

Pin It
Hi! It's Angela from 3*Crazy*Monkeys!
 I am sharing a banner I made for my sister in law's baby shower. I had so much fun doing everything for the shower since we finally have a girl in the family!! YAY! I used a burlap banner base and cut stencils out with my explore. I painted the letters and stars on with reg. paint (awesome samples from Valspar at Lowes!) and on the silver stars, I sprinkled glitter. I just love how it came out! 

This wasn't supposed to be what I showed you-I bought a great box from CraftsuPrint (Connies sponsor this month!) but I haven't gotten it emailed to me yet. But stay tuned, I will be sharing that with everyone this weekend hopefully! Can't wait to put it all together :-)
this is the box I'll be putting together: Duo Champagne
