I'll just have to stick to the paper kind!! I've got all the details on my blog, CreatedByLeanne! I would LOVE for you to drop by and see all the goodies I used in making my card!

This is going to be a EXCITING week here on the blog! Sneak peeks are coming of the upcoming release and you are going to FLIP OUT!! TOTALLY LOVE!!! Thanks for looking and have a AWESOME day!! Hugs, Leanne

Ribbon Wreath :: Lauren Brewer

Happy Friday!  Lauren here from Lauren's Creative!  I am so excited to share a ribbon wreath that I made for my daughter's preschool class.  Next week is teacher appreciation week, and I cannot wait to give this to my daughter's teacher.  I chose colors and die cuts that coordinate with their classroom, but of course the possibilities are endless.  I have been wanting to use the super sweet bookwork face for a really long time - I'm so excited that I got to use it on such a special project.

I made a similar wreath last fall, and I received a lot of requests for a video tutorial.  This is just a quick overview of how to put together a ribbon wreath.  I hope that it's helpful, but if you have any questions - please let me know!

I didn't mention exactly how much ribbon I used...that's a little difficult because I I ended up using some ribbon that I had on hand and some that I had bought specifically for this project.  I would estimate that you need AT LEAST 25 yards of ribbon.  I always can find a use for leftover ribbon, so I would rather have more than not enough.
My die cuts and mini-chalkboard are all hot glued to the wreath.  The Peachy Keen faces add so much personality to the simplest of images. 
I used the PK460-Happy Lashes Face Assortment for this sweet little bumblebee.

The super cute bookwork face is from the PK755 Critter Faces Set A Large set.  I found that little chalkboard in the Target $1 section last week.  It's supposed to be a plant marker, but I removed the stake for this project.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Sweet Boy Birthday :: Amy Crockett

Hello everyone!!  This is Amy from Scrapping Mommy here to share a fun birthday card that you can create for that special little boy in your life.  I don't know about you, but I am always running short on birthday cards and since I have many more nephews than nieces in my family, there is always a need for a birthday card for a little boy.  The Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps is my favorite face set for little boys.

I stamped the background with the new Cloudy Day background stamp in two different colors of blue ink.  I find it easier to add ink to these large images with a brayer.  It provides a more even ink coverage.  After adding the stamped background image to the card, I used my sewing machine to stitch along the edges of the image.
I used my Cricut and the This and That cartridge from Creative Memories to cut out this little boy.  I added some ink and this adorable face from the Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment along with a little chalk on the cheeks and some white gel pen for the whites of the eyes and some freckles on his cheeks.  I inked up and added some stitching to the die cuts, too.  I also cut out a fence and some grass to go behind the boy and added them to the card first.  I finished it off with a little bit of bakers twine from The Twinery.

I hope that this has inspired you to get working on some birthday cards for the sweet little boy in your life.

Dolly Layout :: Jennie Garcia

Hi!! I'm Jennie from Earthy Scrap!!
I got a girly and peachy layout for you!!
My husband got Lily for my daughter when she was 6 months old and she is still her favorite doll.
This is one of many layouts with Lily on it. :0) 

The sun is from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge and I used a face from the March Stamp Of The Month.  The cloud is from April Showers and the face is from the new Cherub Faces Assortment.

How adorable are these dollies!! They are from the Vivienne and Friends Set. 

How adorable is the little girl!!  The dolls come in the wagon but is really easy to cut them out in case they want to play. The sentiment in the little flag is also from this set.

I hope you enjoyed this layout!!
Take Care!!

Better Late Than Never :: Heather Hoffman

Don't miss out on NEW Faces this weekend and a SUPER SAVINGS of 20% OFF*!
*some exclusions apply, please see shop for details

Good morning - Heather here from Houses Built of Cards. I have some Peachy fun to share with you - don't know how - but this post got kind of long! Sorry about that! I decided to use a bunch of different sets, and play a little more with my Silhouette Cameo and an SVG file that I found. I have more information on the SVG file on my blog if you want to find out more. Anyway, here is what I made with it:
And here are all the Peachy sets I used! I used the newest Kit of the Month for the sentiments. There are so many versatile sentiments in this kit - as well as the expected cute peachy faces and all those adorable clocks:

I managed to sneak this background on the bottom of the card - right on top of the pattern paper! This set is so perfect for a background, and I love that it works on masculine cards really well:

Used this set to give my little turtle a hairpiece - so fun! This set adds so much character to your faces:

And finally, I used one of the gnome faces from the March Kit of the month - these faces are great for so much more than just the characters that come in the kits! LOVE that! More bang for your buck is always good:

I also used an Action Wobble, that you can also purchase from Peachy Keen:

Whew...okay - now back to my project! I used some Authentique 6x6 paper (the reverse side) for the turtle. Inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Photo, and then attached some of the layers with foam adhesive for dimension.
I stamped his face and "hair," colored in the eyes with a white gel pen, added some "cheeks" and colored the nose with a Copic marker. Finished off by putting Glossy Accents on the eyes and nose.  
I curved the top sentiment when I stuck it to my clear block, so it would stamp in a curve to match the shape of the turtle. Also couldn't resist a few doodles with my white gel pen on the turtle. 
The background paper is all from an older Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad, Indie Bloom. I inked the edges of it with the same distress ink as the turtle. Then the background stamp I just stamped right on top of the pattern paper - I think it came out kinda fun!
And yep! Here are a couple shots of the turtle in motion with his Action Wobble! 

They really are so much fun!!! Anyway, I finished off with some Baker's twine and faux stitching around the outside edges.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit today! Have a wonderful day - and weekend!!!

Peachy Day :: Glorajean Beardall

Hi, this is Glora from Glora's Crafts and I hope you are having an absolutely Peachy day. I wanted to share a peach card with you today. I have not added a sentiment yet, since I think this could work for almost any occasion and I will add a sentiment when I am ready to send it out.

The super sweet face is from the Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment. I got the peach from the Preserves Cricut cartridge and the card shape is from the Lacey Labels Cricut cartridge. I added inking to all the pieces as well as some faux stitching with my Sakura Gellyroll pen. I also added some chalked cheeks to the peach and some Glossy Accents to they eyes. Oh yes and the pretty twine is from The Twinery.Thanks for stopping by today!

Tick Tock Clocks :: Lorie Souther

Hello!  It's Lorie here today, and I'm thrilled to share with you a couple of cards I made using the new PKSC-04 Stamp of the Month set from Peachy Keen Stamps.   This set is so much fun to work with, has endless possibilities, and it includes so many wonderful sentiments that are perfect for nearly any occasion you can imagine.

The images for both cards were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copic markers.  All of the card stock and patterned paper was a part of this month's Peachy Picks Kit.  I love working with these kits!  There's no guess work with them at all, because everything is coordinated beautifully, and there's plenty of product included for many, many wonderful projects. 

The lace trim on this card was also a part of the Peachy Picks Kit.  I stamped the sentiment, then cut it apart , and mounted it using foam dots to pop it up and add dimension.

This card not only shows off the card stock, and patterned paper from the Peachy Picks Kit, but also showcases the amazing clock faces and spinner/hands from Tim Holtz, which are also included in this month's kit.  They're the perfect addition to this larger size pocket watch stamp.  The PK-104 What Time Is It? background stamp made a great back drop for this image, and the sentiment is from the PKSC-04 Stamp of the Month.

I hope you've enjoyed my creations today.  Glad you could drop by!  Have a great day and happy stamping!!!

Easter Treat Container :: Amanda Bodine

Hey everyone, it's Amanda and I'm so excited to be sharing my project with all of you today.. For my project, I decided to make a fun carrot Easter container filled with some yummy jelly beans.. Well, of course I had to Peachify my carrots with the PK-293 The Cornies Assortment(one of my all time favs) and the PK-101 Medium Polka Dot background stamp.. I just love how these bunny treats turned out and I hope you like them too :0)

I tied a piece of twine around the top of the carrots keep them closed..

Also, I heat embossed the polka dots..

I just love how these carrots open and they are pretty easy to fill..

Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my project..

I hope you all have a great day..
