Use Your Stash Challenge

I just issued a challenge to my team and thought it would be fun to do one for my friends, so here is the challenge - use your stash to create a card, layout, giftie or some other paper craft, it doesn't have to be Close To My Heart, I just want to see you use what you have.  You have until next Tuesday to post a picture of your creation.  And what's a challenge without a prize?!  So next Wednesday I'll draw a name out of all the posts and send someone a little prize!  Good luck and have fun playing!

Mickey Wrapped Candy Bars

I was featuring the Magical papers this month and this was the prize that I gave out at my workshop, quick and easy wrapped up candy bars, doesn't everything with Mickey look cuter?!!

I took the same candy bar and papers and made up these little kits for my roommates at this year's CTMH convention.  I had so much fun making them, I channeled my favorite Mickey fan to create these! :)

Scrapbooking To Do . . .

So how many of you have photos and/or Scrapbooking to be done piles like mine!  The top picture is my organized chaos of photos already printed, the basket is layouts I'm half way done with and the binder is printed contact sheets of photos to do.  Normally I scrapbook today with Kate Maker Arrasmith but she has a friend in town and I'm going to the beach with my girls so this mess will just have to keep waiting for now!  #renaecreateswithfriends

Best Place In The World Card

I think the Magical papers are really the best!  This card was made using one of the sheets and zip strip, I used the Amusement Park stamp set.  The roller coaster is stamped in the background using Whisper and the ferris wheel is stamped in black and colored in with Carmine (Carmine is used on the title as well) and finished off with a striped sequin from the Magical Sequins pack, too cute right?!

Popcorn Magical Card

What fun paper the Magical set is!  An the Carnival Fun stamp set with the coordinately Carnival Fun Thin Cuts are just way too fun to play with!  To finish off the card I added a Magical Sequin, mounted the popcorn and then tied on some White Twine.
