Happy Saturday and welcome to the "Just For Him" blog hop with the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons' design team. Today the PPPR design team is sharing projects geared for men - dads, granddads, sons, brothers, etc. For my project, I used the PPPR "Football Cutting Files" and made a football shaped card. I created a shadow using my sihouette software and welded 2 shadow together to make the base of the card. I also inserted a small rectangle into the welded shape to give the fold of the card a bit more stability. I used the Oregon Duck colors green and yellow for my card since our household "bleeds green" and 2 of us are alumnae and a 3rd will be going to the U of O next year. This card will probably be for my husband for father's day. I had some U of O paper and used my circle punch to cut out an "O" and adhered it to an epoxy sticker. I used the tiny bubbles cuttlebug folder to emboss a section of the football to make it more realistic looking. My sentiment is from Cardz TV stamps and my twine is from the twinery.

Happy Wednesday to you all!! Today I have a card to share with you for my design team project for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. I am just loving all of Lisa's new releases for spring. I am hoping spring is visiting wherever you live. Normally springtime means rain for Oregon but I feel as if we have skipped right over spring and jumped into summer with the beautiful weather we have been blessed with lately.
For my card I used the "Rain or Shine" cutting files set for the boots and the umbrella and the "Scalloped Circles" cutting files set for the lacey circle. I cut the edge of the scalloped circle off to create the effect on my card. My sentiment is from Cardz TV stamps' "Think Spring" set. Make sure to stop by the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons BLOG today to see what the rest of the design team has created - such a talented group of ladies, I am sure you will be inspired. Don't forget to sign up for the PPPR newsletter while you are there so that you can keep informed of all of the newest releases, sales and weekly freebies. Thanks for stopping by today and have a blessed week!

Happy Monday my fellow paper crafters, today is my turn to post for the 3 Girl Jam design team. I am here today to share with you a card I made for my daughter's 18th birthday. This past Monday my oldest daughter turned 18 and this is the card her dad and I gave her.
I used some 3 Girl Jam "cherry lipstick" crinkle ribbon to decorate her card. My flower is from the silhouette online store - item #20660. The frame is from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Layered Labels 2" cutting files set. The sentiment is from Cardz TV Stamps' set "Good Times". I am happy with how my card turned out and my daughter loved it.

Happy Saturday and welcome to the "You're the Man" blog hop with Cardz TV Stamps design team. Our blog hop will extend over the weekend, giving you 2 days of projects using the new "You're the Man" stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. You should be arriving at my blog from the lovely Julie. If you missed the beginning of the hop, then head over to Mary's blog to start our blog hop for today.
For my project, I created a card for my husband since not only is Father's Day coming up but his birthday is too so I figured I best get crafting something! My hubby has just started brewing his own beer this year. After too many years of remodeling our house (and we are still not done!), he finally took up a hobby. Thus, my card was inspired by this part of his life.
My beer mug is a file from the Silhouette Online Store. I used clear acetate for the shadow of the mug, which I realize does not show up that well in the picture. The mustache and the sentiment are from the "You're the Man" stamp set. Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the hop!! Don't forget that Mary will be giving away 2 sets of Cardz TV Stamps to one lucky winner so make sure you leave a comment on her blog!!

Hi my fellow bloggers!! Today is design team day over at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and my project today is made with "Teacher Appreciation" week in mind. This will be specifically for my youngest daughter's homeroom teacher.
I used a large bottle of hand sanitizer that I purchased from Walmart and removed the labels with Goo Gone and Windex. I used Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons "Back to School" cutting files to cut my apple out of vinyl. I used a true type font (can't remember which ones) to cut out the A+ and the teacher's name. I attached the green bow with a bit of twine to keep it securely on the neck of the bottle. I think this cute little apple looks perfect on this and I can't wait for my daughter to give it to her teacher. Make sure you head over to the PPPR blog to see the rest of the design team's projects - I guarantee you will find some creative inspiration from this group of talented gals. Have a great rest of your week and don't forget to post any projects you make with PPPR files on the PPPR facebook page!!
