  Giraffe Shaker Card- Cardz TV DT Day

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!

It's Connie here today to share my very first DT project for Cardz TV!

Today is the start of Cardz TV's Anything Goes Challenge and my Giraffe card just seemed perfect to use for today!


 I used Mary's stamp set called Critter Captions! Perfect for this cute Cricut  Create a Critter giraffe!
I used some foam tape and created a fun shaker box that the sentiment is in.
My papers are all scraps from my stash. And rumple ribbon, ink and sequins finishes this off nicely.

  Wonder-fall

Pin It

Hi there!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.  It's one of those months when I get to post twice here at Connie Can Crop.  Today I'm sharing another card using files from our sponsor this month, Paper Crafting World.


This card combines components from two different cut files, Daisies, Sunflowers and Pennants CF and Cherry Cherries Base CF.  From the first, I used the pennant and mats and the circle and scalloped circle from the second.  The Acorns N' Leaves CF was used to make the focal piece.

I used Farmers Market DSP and Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Very Vanilla card stock, all from Stampin Up on the card.  The focal piece was cut from Blackberry Bliss, Cherry Cobbler, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow.  The acorns were cut from scrap, three shades of brown.

I created a stitched border on the Very Vanilla mats; just a little bit of detail.  I used my Simply Scored diagonal plate to accentuate the plaid.  I embossed the circle with the Square Lattice but I didn't like it, so I ran it through the Big Shot again without any embossing folder to flatten out the embossing and then scored using the diagonal plate again.  For the leaves, I folded them in half and ran them through a paper crimper.  The acorn tops were embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I also coated the acorn bottoms and the scalloped circle with Wink of Stella for a little sparkle.


Inside, I borrowed components from the front to create a sentiment.  I color matched it to Blackberry Bliss.  If I were to do this again, I would opt for another font as I see now it's a bit difficult to read.



If you like the files you see at Paper Crafting World, you should take advantage of a sale going on now. Just click on the image and you'll be directed to the store.

If you make one, please let me know and I'll showcase it for you on my blog!

In the meantime, we have a great challenge going on this month.  

Your project should include a book or a page from a book or use a famous book as your inspiration.  Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

You have until September 30th at 11:59 pm PST to enter and the winner, picked at random, will receive a prize from Paper Crafting World.  The team will also pick their favorite three you will will receive a badge to post on your blog or social media and bragging rights!

Hello my crafty friends!

It's Connie here today to share my very first DT Spotlight with Kitty Bee!

I love owls and fell in love with this sweet image when I saw it. I knew I had to create a fall card using the Kawaii "Hanging Around" Owl Digi Stamp.

I used Kiwi Lane Templates to create the border running across the card.


I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Funky Chicken Card

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.


When I saw this card I knew I had to create it! Why? Because my stepmom loves chickens! So this one is being sent off to her! She will probably frame it!


 I just love the details on the background of this card! I added an older Close to my Heart paper pack, Jubilee and a cute flatback for flair!

The file I used, Chicken Wire Frame, is created by PCW but is exclusive to the Pazzles Craft Room.

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!

  Miss Kate Cuttables

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Miss Kate Cuttables!  
In keeping with the Travel theme this month at MKC, I created a vacation themed layout for you today! I really had a blast creating this layout and remembering the fun we had on this trip! 

But first, did you know that Miss Kate Cuttables gives away a free file everyday?
YES, absolutely FREE. So what are you waiting for, head over there and get your free file now!!

For my project I used the Vacation Memories title and the airplane file. They both compliment each other really well in this layout.





Lots of pop dots add dimension to these adorable die cuts.


Page one Up Close! 


Page two Up Close... 

Notice the fun flip flaps from CTMH that I used. They allow you to add more photos to your layouts!


I layered two flip flaps to create this mini album.



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!

  Spongebob Squarepants

Pin It
Hello my crafty friends!

It's Connie here today to share a super fun layout I created just for the heck of it!
No DT project for this just the sheer joy of wanting to finally bust open my Spongebob Cricut cartridge. I am so glad I did!






The paper I used came from SandyLion. It was just perfect for my layout! Of course I used tons of cardstock (11 sheets to be exact) and pop dots for extra dimension.

I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  CASE a CARD Blog Hop

Pin It

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike.  Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.

This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 


We took one card created by Alicia  and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.


You should have arrived here from Alicia's blog.



We'd like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.



Theresa is giving away a $20 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one lucky winner AND
take 10% off any order placed through her (not available on website) by September 30th. 
Email her at scrapsbygracie AT gmail.com with your order. 

All you have to do to win this fabulous prize is comment on each of the blogs.
That's it! It really is easy.  
Of course, we would love it if you became a follower too. 

Comment buttons can be found at the bottom of the post (on most of the blogs).
Now on with the hop!

Alicia created this really pretty card:


Here's my take on her card:


I didn't have and dies to create the wreath so I used various stamps. I know you can't tell from the photo but I embossed some of the stamped images, just like Alicia did. I added flowers to the wreath and stamped my sentiment on the inside. Alicia's card has green sparkle so I wanted to create some sparkle on my card as well, rhinestones are always great for bling!

Hope you enjoy my version!

Up next is my dear friend Kim at


Thanks so much for hopping with us! Here's the entire line up in case you get lost:
