Meow are you?

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!!

Hope you are having a great weekend!

Kendra here, from Luv 2 Scrap N' Make Cards!

This week we are featuring any kind of project we wish!

Ever since getting the Punny Animals set, I visioned creating a card for a friend using the "Meow are you" sentiment, as I have two lovely girlfriends who love cats!

So today is the day, I have finally used it!  

And to make it even more fun, I decided to make a cat shaped card!!
Isn't she adorable?!

I used my Cricut Create a Critter cart!  

Close-up of her tag with the fun sentiment:

So many fun possibilities!!

Enjoy the SUMMER!

We have SO been enjoying the heat, sun, and the pool!!
After this week of watermelon projects, I am going to have to run out and get a melon to enjoy
with the family!!

The sentiment comes from Joy's Life: Pun in the Sun set.
Don't you love the bold font of "summer?"

I used a watermelon colored glitter paper to create this fruit.   No pattern here...just cut a watermelon looking shape.  Stick it onto of a green paper...and trim to create the rind.  I also sponged the layers of this melon to give it a bit of definition.  To tie in the sunny yellow banner, I used Rumple Ribbon of the same sunflower color!

Thanks so much for checking out Joy's Life DT blog.
I hope you are also "enjoying the SUMMER!"

Hello everyone! Laura here from Laura's Crafts & More...This week the DT is making some fun cards & projects using watermelons or the colors pink/green/black/white! I first thought I would cut a watermelon on my Cricut but then thought that what's everyone will think I decided to do the color scheme...THEN I was at the grocery store and saw a watermelon margarita frozen drink and that was all I needed! So of course I had to buy the drink and make a tag to go along with it to give to a friend, although I must say this drink is looking really good! ;) Doesn't it look yummy?? I used "Cheers" & "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere" from Pun In The Sun....

So I used the pink & green background and added some black & white ribbon with a cute little watermelon charm! 

And here is a close-up of the fabulous stamp...

Seeds the Day! Watermelon!

This week the Joy's Life team is using WATERMELON as inspiration for our projects! What's more summer than that?! I have to admit, I was a little intimidated with this assignment, I had no idea where to begin! Then I decided to make a watermelon slice. Now, I just adore this card!

I used the 'Seeds the day' stamp from the That Tastes Punny set. I created the watermelon by hand, using a rain drop punch for the seeds.

For more details on this card, check out my blog.

Flip flopping Fabulous Summer!

It's the first Saturday of Summer! The beaches will be hopping, so break out those flip flops! Julie here from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers with a kick off to summer card to show you.
In honor of the start of summer, the Joy's Life design team has been kicking off summer all week. And, in honor of the first Saturday of summer, I'm breaking out this flip flop card:

It's a nesting bracket card, cut out on my Silhouette, that keeps flipping open.  Here it is completely open:
The sentiment is from the Pun in the Sun Stamp set, found in the Joy's Life store.
I'll leave you with a close up of the darling sentiment, just perfect for summer...
I'd love it if you'd stop by my blog and see the rest of this card.  It's a flip flopping fabulous design. Keep your flip flops handy -- it's summer!

Good Morning!!
It's me, Jennifer, from
This week we are "Kicking off Summer" and my card says it all! I have been to Hawaii a few times and it is the most relaxing feeling in the whole world and the smell, oh the smell, so sweet and wonderful. So when I think of summer I think tropical landscapes aka Hawaii!
The palm tree and sunshine are form the Silhouette Studio and the hula girl is from Too Cute by Jessica, the "Hawaii Vacation Girls".

The sentiment I chose to use worked perfectly as well. It's from the "Pun in the Sun" set pictured below.
I hope that you all liked my project for the day
and I'll see you again soon!

Beach Crab Summer Card

Hi, everyone!  It's been awhile but it's Patty here from the Crafty Kitten!

The first day of Summer just around the corner and we've been celebrating it at this past week. 

When I saw this cute crab image in the Silhouette store, I knew I had to make a project with him!  

Here's a closeup of the stamp which is from Joy's Pun In The Sun set.  If you ink it up well, it will stamp great on Bazzill paper.

   The card is a standard 4.25x5.5" but I cut the paper vertically for a change.  I used a variety of textured papers on it.  To keep it from looking so plain, I used glitter and hand drawn stitching.

Well, that is all for me today.  If you get a moment, I'd appreciate it if you stop by my blog and say "hi"!

Best FISHES, Dad!

Hi, everyone, Julie here from Muddy Paws and Inky Fingers with a masculine themed card for you.
My brother took my 82 year old father fishing yesterday.  Some things are enjoyable at any age.  You're never too old to enjoy the things that matter -- spending time with your son, in a boat, soaking up the sun on a glorious June day in Wisconsin. 
In honor of my father and his love of fishing, and with Father's Day in mind, I created this easel card for him using the Joy's Life "Pun in the Sun" stamp set...

For more of my work, and for details about this card, please stop by my blog.
Best Fishes, Dad.  May you have many more years out on the water.
