October Tic-Tac-Toe 
Our sponsors for the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge are Bugaboo and Stitchy Bear. My projects for this challenge are a Quarter Fold Card using the Bugaboo image JJ Birthday and a Halloween Treat Box using the Halloween Night image and Designer Papers Pack by Cootsy.

First off we have the Quarter Fold card. I got the idea for this card off of SplitcoastStampers. They have a tutorial for it on there web site.  It reminds me of the fold you do when re-closing a box that's been opened. Fun and easy to make.

Next up we have the Halloween Treat Box.  For this I used a ready-made slider box that I found in the Halloween section at Walmart (Package of 3 for $1.47). I layered 2 of the papers from the Coostsy paper pack on the front of the box, colored the witch image and added it with pop dots. I took the sentiment that I removed from the front of the original box and added a brown ink to it and a button brad and a small white ribbon bow that I colored with a green ink and then attached it to the bottom of the box front with pop dots. I then used a piece of the paper pack to line the inside of the box. Who wouldn't want to get treats in a box like this?

3-My Craft Creations Anything Goes
August 2014 Grab Bag and Bonus Challenge
See Mema's Crafts for Rules
My project for this Bonus Challenge is a small Mini Photo Album. Well actually I am creation two albums. This is kind of a special project for me as my 17 year old twin Grandsons are away at Military School. For me this will be an ongoing project from now until December when they graduate. We will be allowed to visit them only about once per month so i will be taking pictures each visit and creating a new page or two for each visit. I was given the Knock Out Border Punch System and 1 extra punch to work with . Each punch comes with wing guides that fit into the system to guide you in punching.  So when I seen the punches I immediately thought that the extra punch I received along with the system -Notebook Punch was perfect for a little album I had planned for each of the boys. I had been saving these little white rings for just this purpose, they fit perfectly into the punched border. I used the punch that came with the system as a border along the bottom of each photo Matt. Both Albums will be identical.

 Our sponsors for July are Kenny K and Stitchy Bear. I have used the Kenny K image Bathing Beauty and the Stitchy Bear- Coosty Creations image Tamani. The theme for July is Make It A Duet.
            Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet

First Gift Bag: My first creation for July is a gift bag using the Tamani image by Coosty Creation. My duet colors are Green and Pink. This image came with 3 backing papers. I started out with a black pink gift bag and added 1 of the pink background papers. Next I used my Martha Steward Circle Edge Punch on the piece of green background paper. I colored the image with my Prisma Color Pencils and added it with Pop Dots. Next I used a Martha Stewart Edge Punch to create the strip from the 2nd pick background paper which I backed with another piece of the green paper and then added it across the bottom of the image. Last I created a bow from a avocado bag and added a green flower and a piece of tissue.

For my  second Gift Bag I used the Kenny K image Bathing Beauty. I went with a red and brown theme this time. I started out with a brown bag from the gift shop at the Casino where I work. I added some Palm Tree background paper. I fussy cut the totem pole and added it along the side of the bag as a border. I used mu Martha Stewart Circle Punch to create the brown flowered circle in the background. I wanted a surfboard but didn't have one so I made it out of a cream colored card and matted it with a brown stripped card. I then took a piece of red card and used a Martha Steward Edge punch to create the floral strip down the middle. The surfboard was added with Pop Dots. I then colored the Bathing Beauty image with my Prismacolor Pencils and added her with more Pop Dots. I created the sentiment tag with another shorter fussy cut totem pole and cream and brown stripped card. I also added a stick on of lanterns, red and cream Washi Tape, a Fussy Cut Totem Face for a tag with the added piece of red vegetable bag, a Cocoanut Cup sticker and red and white polka dotted tissue.
