Clear Scraps Altered Frame TUTORIAL- Giveaway!!

Good morning Clear Scraps friends, 
Welcome to the Summer Inspiration Blog Hop day TWO!

To me the epitome of summer is BASEBALL so I decided to created an 

 Peel off one side of the protective film. 

Lay Mascil onto frame. 
Using paint- dab onto frame over Mascil. 
Set aside to dry. 
Trim out 4.5X6.5" paper- adhere photo. 
Using Beacon adhesive- adhere matted photos to each side of frame. 
Add emebllishments!
I used some sports stickers I had that coordinated with the photo. 
Now I can hang this in the window if I want because it
is two sides or hang it on the wall! :)

Now head on to the other blogs and see what inspiration they have!

~Last Week Of School~

Good morning!
Seriously could the last week of school be any more hectic?? I mean
we are MID baseball season plus the last week of school and I am swamped! LOL

I keep wanting to sit down and craft but it escapes me!!
So I thought I would share a few photos from my week instead! :) 

Yesterday we planted my garden- yes it is late but the man
at the garden center said everyone's is because it has been horrible weather. 
So I am happy it's in! :) 
Saturday night I got all gussied up for the theater...
Me and 4 of the best gals I know went to see SPANK!

 If you don't mind humor- was pretty much the best thing I have  ever
seen in my entire life! Plus these gals made it so much fun! 
I LOVE this and them. Next to meeting Jenny Lawson this was the best.
 Bounce back to last-night when my boy graduated 5th grade with TOP HONORS!
I mean he blew my mind! He won medals and awards in so many things
LOVE this kid so much-
 Skip back to Sunday and we had a wonderful birthday party for our
dear friends the Close Family- OMG it was the best time I have had in ages!
We all played (except me the shutterbug) seriously the best. 

Oh and Monday I went to take photos of the Dragons Team! 
I am loving taking sports photos.

I mean you can see why crafting has not happened- it has been 
one hell of a week in the Hobbs home- Pictures over 2500!
Activities and games- love me some May!

Have a beautiful day- I am off to my son's field trip- good times!!!!! :)

~Click Click- Too Good To Be True!~


I am super excited because I have not one, not TWO, 
but THREE projects to share today using the fun and awesome 
and of course the amazing coordinating digital cuts! :)
I made this card and just HAD to use the stamps to "create" a
Polaroid popping out of the camera- I mean seriously is this not the best
thing you have ever seen in your life? I mean it is mine! LOL
Of course all the sentiments were cut with the digital files as well. 

And this one was a fun time too! I love that background stamp
and decided to use white ink against the black background.
I used my Clearsnap Colorbox inks- perfection!
 It's a mini card but I love it so hard!!!
 And last but not least the FULL sized card digital file that came with 
the stamp set- it just cut the card right on my Silhouette. 
I added the sentiment stamping- and this was a FUN little time to make.

There is nothing better than an old time bright light camera!
Even typing this post makes me freaking giggle!!!

HAPPY HUMP DAY my friends! Have a wonderful week!!!!
Head to Avocado Arts to find out more!

~Thank You Teachers- Acrylic Card~

Hey there my wickedly crafty friends, 
I am up today with a fun ACRYLIC card (I mean of course) that I created
for Justice's teacher! Sorry it's not an Awkward Moments card-
I have a few of those coming for sure!
Today I was focused on this thank you card for my son's teacher. 
And creating these fun vintage flowers with my Purple Cows punches.
I used my Jenni Bowlin papers- and just went with it. 
I don't get to do vintage style often but when I do I immerse myself
I just love it. I love all styles LOL
Anyways- it was a fun card to make- I love my Clear Scraps for sure!

Happy Tuesday my friends!!! 
Thank YOU for stopping by!

~Berrylicious Mother's Day~

Good morning my friends, 

Ok this morning is not about crafts- sorry! :) LOL
I did craft this weekend in fact here is a sneak peek!!!!
I had some FUN with my Silhouette and Avocado Arts-
I am literally screaming to share them on Wednesday! :) 

Anyways I spent Mother's Day with friends in the strawberry patch- 
here are a few of the shots I took- all good stuff!

 This one I took because it reminds me of when my grandma was alive
and going to her home- well it just felt like her house. 

It was a whirlwind of a day- after this I went home and cooked up a dinner
then headed to the hospital to see my gal pal Mel-she was laid up
and let's face it- we all need visitors in the hospital! :) 
Hope you had a happy Mother's Day my friends-
