Altered Composition Book revision!

LOL! I just had issues with the Marlin Altered Comp book and so I re-did it! Here is the new version and I really love this much better. The Echo Park Splash papers are fabulous (these are the digital versions from www.jessicasprague.com) I created the marlin SVG and the phrase myself using SCAL3 and MTC.

Subway Art

I was cruising around the net and saw some Subway Art and I love it! I bought a few ceramic tiles the last time I was at the Home Improvement store so I thought I would give it a whirl!
These are so much fun, I just want through my fonts picking as I went! (so don't ask what they are LOL) Then I went through my vinyl scraps and picked Fall colors and started cutting away. Next time I am going to put my words closer together but I am happy with the way this one turned out!
I am picking the winner of the Altered Composition book tomorrow so be on the look out for that, and I hope to have a new project for y'all. (I have a personal goal to try to post more often, now that Summer is winding down (so sad) I should be crafting more. (If only I could sent the 2 year old to school! LOL)

Altered Composition Book Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Melissa's Blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by to visit, Welcome and please consider going to Joy's Blog and start this fabulous hop from the beginning!

I created three fun Altered Composition Books for you. These are so much fun! I created a Teacher version, a girl version and a boy version. The first one is the teacher version...
I used papers from my stash, the Apple guy is a My Scrap Chick file "Big Red" and the stamp is from one of Joy's new sets "Holiday Occasions", I created the Welcome in SCAL3 and I used "SF Toontime" font. I added a color coordinated clip and I just love this cute comp book.
My second altered composition book is for a girl and I just love it...
I used a paper from Echo Park's "Sidewalk Chalk" paper set for the binding and Chalkboard vinyl!!!! (Isn't that so super cool! I am in love with this chalkboard vinyl) I cut some shapes from Lettering Delights "Quirky Doodles" and used some chalk to say "School is Cool" and tomorrow I can say something different!
Last but certainly not least is my "Boy" version. I live on the Outer banks of NC and we are known here as the "Billfish Capital of the World" I have a White Marlin hanging on my living room wall that I caught on my 10th birthday. (I come from a very long line of Boat Builders and Fishermen) all of the boys around here are really into fishing and this fits the bill for them!
The papers are from Echo park's "Splash" paper collection, I created the svg for the blue marlin myself and the "Wishin I was Fishin", I created using "Oh {Photo} Shoot" font . I just love the way these turned out and I will be making more of these!!

Good Noodle Card

I created this cute card using Lettering Delights "Bento Box" svg set and a Scrappy Moms Stamp from their  "Amusing Animals" stamp set. I used a small piece of rick-rack and inked the edges of the tag (the tag is from the basic shapes collection in MTC or SCAL ). I just love the colors and this card could be for an older child or a man or woman, I love the versatility of it.

Lettering Delights Intricate Boxes

Lettering Delights has come out with a fabulous collection for Intricate Gift Boxes. I created two of them so far and I am in LOVE!!

These boxes are really nice and sturdy and will hold many things and make gorgeous gift boxes, they can also be made larger or smaller! These can be bought individually or as a set. I bought the set and I am so glad that I did, I want to make them all! I really love these boxes.

"That's Hot" Blog Hop

My Wonderfully talented Friend, Yolie, asked me to participate in her "That's Hot" blog hop and I jumped at the chance! If you have arrived here from Xochitl's blog, then you are in the right spot! If you just happened to come by to visit, Thanks! and please go to Yolie's blog and start hopping at the beginning so you don't miss a single Hot thing!!
I created two projects for you today and both are HOT!! I grow a huge garden every summer, my garden is unusual because everything is grown in containers (mostly 5 gallon buckets) I have 125 tomato plants and 60 pepper plants, many varieties of each. I use the tomatoes and peppers to make Salsa and it is nice and HOT! I make LOTS of salsa, so far I have made 6 cases of salsa. The first project it a Trendy Tool Tote from My Time Made Easy.
I used some red card stock from Recollections and the patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety and the tomato tag is from svgcuts.com Veggie Garden II. The two jars of salsa are from my secret recipe!

My second project is also a holder foe two jars of my
hot salsa! This one is also from My Time Made Easy, this one is the "Fancy A Cuppa" The label is from Lettering Delights "Delilah's Tags". I just love these boxes for my salsa and will be making many more especially around the holidays.
Your next stop is Angie's Blog, and here is the whole lineup just in case you get lost!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

I used Joy's Life "Yummy Puns" Stamp set and the My Scrap Chick "watermelon Kids" cut set to create this super cute card. I used a piece of ribbon for the grass and a Peachy Keen Face stamp for the little girls face. (I love PK face stamps!!) I used MTC software and the shadow feature to create the shaped card. 
This is my final Joy's Life Design Team post and I am very sad for my term to be over. Joy is doing something different this time and YOU can be a Featured Designer on Joy's Life, so go HERE and check it all out. I really enjoyed working with Joy she is a fantastic person and makes fantastic products! Thanks Joy.
