As of Jan 1, 2014, Colorful Creations will close its doors.
I have been a DT member for over a year and had fun hosting the Song Challenge each month. The site was up and running for 4 years... and even though I wasn't on the site for the full time, it was truly fun.
I learned a lot through challenges... and trying new techniques. And the Design Team was fabulous!
All the best to Brenshevia, the person who founded the C.C. site.
On a much happier note...
I have a card to share with you that was submitted at Turtle Soup for their Crash Your Stash (12/18) Challenge.
The challenge is to use Chipboard.
A neutral-colored Birthday card. Lots of layers and gold! The sentiment is a chipboard tag.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday!!
I know I did! I got a treadmill! Woo hoo! Now I can get some "movement" into this body during these LONG winter months!
Here's a fun layout that was submitted at Soul Scrappers for their Lift Challenge (LIFT8). You can see the challenge here.
The layout to scraplift:
And here's my layout titled, "Ho, Ho, Ho!"
This is me... dressed up as Santa during one of the many office Christmas parties! One of my coworkers was having some fun and pretending to "cry" because Santa didn't bring her anything (but he did)!! :)

Tag Page Title
Glitter Tree Topper
Zig Zags: Hand cut
I added a couple 3D ornaments in the upper right of my page.
The page title was cut from a tag and I added the holly leaves.
For the banner... I found these cute little string lights at a $ store... snipped a piece off and added these cute vinyl shapes "hanging" from it.
Lots of scrap papers were used for the tree. It's so fun to roll these papers and create something fun! I found this glitter tag and added it as the tree topper.
It's STILL snowing here! I think we have enough already!!
Yesterday I actually finished a couple projects that I really wanted to do. This first one is a gift box which I submitted at Turtle Soup for their December Mini Crop - Gift Box Challenge. You can see the challenge here.
These are the sweetest gift boxes! So fun to make! The only thing that I get stumped on is how to decorate it. I always have to think about it for awhile.
Paper: American Crafts
Twine: American Crafts
Glitter Gems: Home Made
I have made these before... and added embellishments on the sides too... which is pretty cool... but I decided to leave this one plain.
Here's a straight-on shot of the gift box. I started the layering with ribbon, glitter snowflake, snowman and gems and holly leaf. Ribbon was added at the top of the snowman tag and tied with twine.
Here's the other layout I completed yesterday that was submitted at Sketches 4 All for their December Sketch Challenge. You can see the challenge here.
This is the sketch:
And here's my layout titled, "Guess Who."
If you haven't figured out already, I love masks! When my sister got me this beautiful mask, our daughter and I had to have some fun with it! First she took one of me, then I took one of her. Lots of laughs! :)
Paper: DCWV, Kraft
Bling & Gems: Home Made
SU Border Punch
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Clear Sticker Letters
Gold and red flowers are gathered on the right of the photo with swirly bling.
A closer look.
Each flower punch was embossed with a snowflake folder.
Several layers of flowers and circles were added and a couple of the layers embossed before adding the page title.
