Happy First Day of School and saying good buy to Scrappy Hands

Hello my dear blog readers! It looks like another month passed without me visiting here. My excuse is that I've been busy. We had a very busy month filled with travels, family visit, graduation party and we are getting ready to say good buy to Lila as she is heading to college, eager to start her independent life.

But I still have a high school sophomore and a third grader and for them September 6th will mark a beginning of another school year.
I made a simple "Happy First Day of School" card to mark the occasion. I was inspired by the latest Scrappy Hands challenge. It says "Stationary" in English but I would translate it as "Writing Instruments"

I used a pencil sticker from the "K & Company" sticker sheet. I wanted to keep it simple so I designed my sentiment in Silhouette software, cut it from vinyl and used cardstock layers with small offset underneath the vinyl.

I used foam tape under the words for more dimension.

Sadly, this challenge is the last Scrappy Hands challenge. I enjoyed being part of the Design Team and working with these talented ladies. Stop by the blog and take an look on their take on out last challenge.

Happy new school year to everyone!

Hello pretty toes - Scrappy Hands flip flops challenge

Hello my dear blog readers! Time for another post and another Scrappy Hands challenge! This week the challenge theme is Flip Flops. Right away I knew I want to use a photo of my toes with the first toe decal I made. I am wearing flip flops in this picture so it fits the challenge perfectly :-)

Everything I used to make the layout is from the Boho collection from Michaels. I actually made this layout at the hotel we stayed during the weekend. Friday morning before we left I printed two copies of the picture, packed the paper pad, matching embellishments, pair of scissors and adhesive. On Saturday I spent an hour playing with paper and embellishments. I had an idea of what I want to do and everything came together quickly. It helps when you have limited options :)

I cut of the silhouette of my feet and layered them on the second copy of the picture using dimensional adhesive. They literally pop out the page.

Do you have an idea for flip flops paper project? We would love to see it! You can link it to our challenge linky right here.

Dream big and shine bright - Scrappy Hands sketch challenge

Hello my dear blog readers! 

I am making a quick stop here just to share a new happy card I made for the latest Scrappy Hands challenge.

I used papers and embellishments made by Recollections that are sold at Michael's stores.

The big oval die cut is popped up with foam tape for more dimension. 

I cut out the hexagons from the paper and layered in top small pieces of washi tape and triangle epoxy stickers.

Good luck and symmetry

Hello my dear blog readers!

I am a little late posting this (more like a week late) but in this case it's better late than never.

I made this colorful card for the Scrappy Hands Symmetry challenge.

I printed the hamsa design on a piece of cardstock and colored it with Faber Castell markers.

The sentiment says Mazel Tov in Hebrew and is cut from glitter vinyl. I added few dots with gold smooch ink to the design.

It took me quite some time to finish the coloring but I love how it turned out!

New Scrappy Hands challenge is already out but there are still 12 days to participate in the symmetry challenge. Link your work right here. We would love to see it!

Scrappy Hands challenge 64 - Flag

Hello my dear blog readers. Today I am sharing a layout I made for the Scrappy Hands Flag challenge. I used the pictures from the Celebrate Israel Parade in NYC that we marched in with the Israeli Scouts 2 years ago. 


I kept the layout simple by making a background of blue pennants and adding three flags under the pictures.

The titles and the Israeli flags are made from vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo. So easy!

Spring birthday card - Scrappy Hands #63

Hello my dear blog readers! I had busy two weeks filled with roller derby, college visits, Passover and orders. I also had some gifts to make, one of them for a little girl from Eli' class. I wanted to make a sweet girly card and it worked perfectly with the latest Scrappy Hands Spring challenge.

I made a tri fold card with pop up butterfly. I designed and cut the card with Silhouette Cameo and used glitter vinyl to decorate the butterfly wings. The patterned paper is by American Crafts.

The card opens to reveal the birthday message.

The card came with the birthday gift - personalized storage container. I love this container - it has a removable tray and a carrying handle - perfect to store craft supplies or small toys.

I filled it with pretty stickers and washi tape. What 8 year old girl would no like this gift?

Baby cards

Hello my dear blog readers!
Today I am sharing two cute cards I made for the latest Scrappy Hands challenge. 

The challenge theme is "Babies" and what can be more adorable than cute little onesies?? I used this card I saved to my Pinterest board as an inspiration.

I stamped the onesie from the Fiskars baby stamp set and colored it with Faber Castell big brush markers.

Supplies: stamps (Fiskars), ink, (CTMH), markers (Faber Castell), paper (Lil' Davis), twine, jewels, Silhouette Cameo

The two layered banner is made from paper scraps in pastel colors. I used a glue pen to attach the twine and finished with tiny sparkly stars and a sentiment cut from vinyl.

And while I was at it I made another one in different color scheme.

 Supplies: stamps (Fiskars), ink, (CTMH), markers (Faber Castell), paper (Lil' Davis), hearts (Heidi Grace), twine, Silhouette Cameo

Stop by the blog to see what other DT members did for this cute challenge and if you have your baby project to share with us, please do!

Live fully - Scrappy Hands bingo challenge

Hello, my dear blog readers. Another Sunday and another Scrappy Hands challenge. This week we are inspired by bingo cards.

I remembered that I had dome old Jenni Bowlin bingo cards in my stash and after some searching I found them. I picked the one that says Live and added "fully"

The background is a simple patchwork of patterned paper squares. I designed the word "fully" with Silhouette software. The white layers is cardstock and the top mint layer is vinyl.

I used thin pieces of foam tape to pop up the word.

Stop by the Scrappy Hands blog to see what other designers made for this challenge. And most important - live fully!

Scrappy Hands Plant Challenge

Hello my dear blog readers! Time for another Scrappy Hands challenge. This week the theme is "Plants"

I made a card using American Crafts collection that I got few years ago at Target dollar spot! I know, a little unconventional for scrapbooking shopping, but I liked the paper, so why not? One of the papers had 6 images of seed packets. I cut out the lilies packet, layered it on top of green chevron paper and added a sentiment sticker.

I finished with adding matching butterfly stickers and going over the lilies stamens with gold smooch ink.
