H{ippity} Hop March Challenge the "TWIST"

Good Morning everyone.. hope your weekend was full of fun. It was such a busy week here and the weekend was even more. The kids were off for spring break and we had visitors everyday.. so it was a nice busy time. So last night I finally got to do some projects.. I wanted to do a page in my ART journal. I just love the process of splashing paint on a surface and getting creative.
For Week two of the H{ippity} Hop Challenge we were introduced to some fantastic colour combinations and I want to add those colours in my journal.. so Spring like.

Using some of the stamps from the Fall 2010 Ippity Release I made this page.. I used the heart flower stamp from the How You Doin'? set, The Post and the flowers from the Cherish Your Dreams set, The family stamp from the Here and Now set. I have all the colours melded together with a pop of the pink.

For this weeks H{ippity} HOP challenge (IHHTC3) comes the fun part..
it is the TWIST and we are to use some
hand stitching on our project..
Using a very thick needle and some wonderful Twinery Bakers Twine I stitched on this Spellbinders die cut piece.
inking and stamping the family stamp around on the petals. finishing it off with a MM pink brad.

Here is the March Challenge with a twist .. I just love it all

Make sure you come and check out my Tutorial for making an ART journaling page on the
That's How Thursday
on the Ippity Blog. I will go through the steps on using your stamps for a great
Multi Media Art journaling page.

The Master List of today's H{ippity} Hop is HERE
But you will want to check out the Lovely Eva to see what she had made with today's challenge.

Have a wonderful day

H{ippity} Hop March Challenge week 3

Hello and welcome week 3 of March's H{ippity} Hop challenge
I am in love with the photo inspiration.. I want to make that pillow, as soon as I can make it to the fabric store.. isn't it just amazing.

This Saturday past my boys were out all day moving furniture.. me and the little one were home having a cuddly girl day. Our plans included making some home made cupcakes.. These were good.. I think I need to make them a little fluffier but still they were yummy.
So yesterday I wanted to make a cute layout with some of the photo's I took of her eating them.
Cuppy Cakes

Using the perfect Cuppy Cake stamps from Ippity.

I used the shape of the flowers from the photo inspiration, the colour inspiration which were also perfect from this Cosmo Cricket (togetherness) papers and diecuts. Love when you have the perfect papers for challenges.

I also used the scalloped stamp from the Sing a New Song
ippity stamp set.

I just love how you can use these stamps to create beautiful cards and layouts.
Now it is time to go check out the Beautiful and Inspiring Eva.

Have a wonderful day, I will be spending today with my parents , sister and her 2 girls.
we are crafting up a storm!
