Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday - CAS

Happy Saturday people!  It is a lovely morning here in Alabama and I am gearing up for a busy day.  But, before I hit the ground running, I want to share this weeks Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge!

This week at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle the challenge is Clean and Simple (CAS)!  We have a great prize up for grabs from Glitz Designs!  We'd love to have you join in the fun!

For my CAS creation, I created a little envelope goodie bag. 

To create this little goodie bag, I started with a regular A2 envelope.  I embossed the envelope with my Cuttlebug and used my Treading Water border punch on one side.  I tied it with ribbon and created the little handle with coordinating ribbon.  The image is a stamp in front of a scallop circle I cut using Spellbinders die.  I added a little paper grass and DONE!  If you'd like to see a tutorial of how to create this goodie bag, click HERE.

Come on over and create something with us this week at Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle!  We'd love to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Scrappy Love,

Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle Saturday -Glitter, Sparkle, Shine

Happy Saturday everyone!  I am so glad the weekend is finally here!  It has been a busy two weeks at school filled with high stakes testing that brings lots of stress and tension among teachers and kids.  I look forward to the day when schools, and more importantly children, aren't judged by their ability to perform on any one test on any one day!  I seriously doubt that will ever happen in my lifetime....but a teacher can dream can't she?!?!

This week at Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle Saturday, the design team challenges you to get your BLING on!  That's right, all things that glitter, sparkle, and shine are welcome!  You should definitely check out what the design team came up with ~ some amazing creations!

Here's my card for this week's challenge.

 I started out with brown cardstock and some beautiful, glittery patterned paper from the Paper Studio.  I used my scallop circle die to make my butterfly really pop.  I used my Slice to cut the butterfly out of DCWV glitter paper and then accented it with lots of bling!  The sentiment is a stamp ~ I don't know where it came from!

We'd love to see what you come up with, so get your BLING on and link up!
