CPS 114 & April Provo Craft

May 8, 2009

I am so happy it is Friday!! How about you? Not that my weekends ever seem to slow down lately. Every single weekend since Easter has been busy with something it seems, and it isn't slowing down until the end of this month. And then I start school...which probably means I won't have a lazy weekend for at least 5 months! I bet time is just going to fly though...and it will be all worth it at the end!

Now to some real quick business items...I have not heard from the winner of my prize for the Cuttlebug Blog Hop last Friday. If you have contacted me via email, I DID NOT receive it so I need you to resend. My email address is jnllawson @ bresnan.net. I looked at your profile, but there was no way to contact you...so please get in touch with me so I can get your prize off. Once again...here is the winning comment:

bevyb said... I have Lilies in my garden but not a stargazer. First thanks for the little extra giveaway. During the week after a long work day I just relax with some ice tea and become a couch potato. On the weekends it time to relax by creating. May 3, 2009 1:21 PM

If I haven't heard from the winner by Monday, I will pick a new winner and post it on my blog. I will also contact you if there is a way to do so via your profile.

Now, I have some crafty things to share with you today! First up is my card for sketch 114 at CPS this week. We were sponsored by Sweet 'N Sassy this week, and we got to choose a set of digital stamps to use. I chose the "A {Mush}room With A View" set....isn't it adorable!! This card with the cute digi stamp and the fun Sass papers just makes me smile!! And once again...I used my latest favorite ribbon from Renaissance By Design. Their ribbon just rocks!! Love it!

And I have my April projects for Provo Craft to share with you today. I was assigned to do three projects that feature the new Lyrical Letters cartridge only. My first project assignment was to do a home decor box or frame. The letters and the swirly cuts are all from the cartridge. (The naked chipboard box and the felt flower is also a Provo Craft product.)

My second assignment was to do a card. This cartridge has a large selection of sentiment cuts for cards. I think they cover pretty much every card sentiment you could think of, so it is an awesome cartridge for card makers. You not only get all the letters in six different fonts to make your own sentiments, but you also get pre done sentiments that are fabulous!
And my last project was to do a chipboard mini album. I am SO not a mini album person, but I did my best on it. All the lettering is from the cartridge. I also used these fabulous chipboard shapes from Tattered Angels that come with embossing on them. I also glittered them up, which made them even more gorgeous! I think I found my newest favorite chipboard!

Well, I am off to Sheridan tomorrow morning! My mom's birthday was on Wednesday, Casey's prom is on Saturday, and mother's day is on Sunday...so it was definitely a good weekend to go celebrate!

But, I will be scheduling a post for Sunday....because that is the release day for the May kit at Vintage Plum!!! It is such a FABULOUS kit this month...I can't wait to show you what I have come up with! So, come back on Sunday to check it out! If you haven't heard of Vintage Plum yet...I encourage you to go check out the site. They are a new kit club, and everything in each kit features product only made in the USA. With the economy the way it is...I think this is such a fabulous feature. Plus- our message board is a lot of fun and drama free! So, come check us out!

Well, I better get going for now. I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
