Blurfin' Fun!!

Happy Weekend Everyone! It is brrrrr cold here in VA and I'm NOT liking it one bit--blech! What happened to the 70 degrees---wahhhhh! I feel that winter chill in the air which means winter is soon to come--and you know I'm NOT a fan, lol! Today I'm off to the mall for the promised "homecoming dress" shopping trip I promised Alexa and she's bringing a friend. I hope she's able to find something quickly or we will progress into the pouting/whining stage "I can't find ANYTHING" or "it makes me look fat" (as if, lol)! Not to mention that my shopping patience only lasts so long, lol especially if my blood sugar is low and there isn't any Coke in site :)  And then once the dress is found we have to get shoes and jewelry and then we can leave, lol!  Ah to be a teenage girl again--NOT, I wouldn't go back if you paid me big $$$$, lmbo!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend!


-SCACD has some great new products in including the NEW Gold & Silver Flower Soft (AWESOME STUFF--looks like tinsel), NEW Petaloo velvet hydrangeas, blooms and poinsettias (beautiful) and NEW Kaisercraft 6x6 paper pads!

-Monday is the October Magnolia-licious Blog Hop!!  The theme is "We're Cookin'" and all the details will be up on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog on Monday morning starting at 4 am EST!

Blurfin' Fun!!

Today I have a fun project for you that I had "created" in my mind a bit ago but never got around to making it!  It's also for this week's "Try It Out Challenge" and it was to create a fall gift--well mine isn't fall themed but it does make a great gift :)  Check out the store blog HERE to see more fun creations by the DT!!  I'm using a fabulous image by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD called "You Have Mail"--this image reminds me so much of my daughter and her ever attached laptop, lol! (or if you ask my friends they say this is a younger version of me with my laptop & coke, hee hee)!  I created a fun birthday card and laptop gift card holder which was fun!  **And just so you know blurfin' is blog-hopping, not throwing up, hee hee ***

I kept the color scheme to royal blue, yellow and white and made it fun for a tween or teenager to receive.  The yellow paper with small stars is from PTI, the other dp is from DCWV and then I embossed the blue cs with a NEW Cuttlebug Folder (large dots--isn't it cool)!  The sentiment is from PTI as well and then rhinestones bling it up a bit!

Yep this cutie is colored with Copics and then I've added diamond glaze to the laptop screen and stickles to the Coke can and moons on her fun pajamas.  Isn't she just a cutie?  This "You Have Mail" image is perfect for tween/teen girls in your life!

To create the laptop gift card holder I basically created a smaller version of an easel card (if you want dimensions, email me and I will measure it up for you this weekend)!  Need directions for the Easel Cards--I created a picture tutorial HERE if you'd like to have a looksy!  I tried drawing out the keyboard on silver cs but it looked odd to me, lol so I got a free clipart image from Google and resized it and printed it out.  The screen is silver cardstock with the corners rounded and then some cardstock and a fun sentiment from PTI--rhinestones finish it off.  To create the back pocket for the gift card---I just lined the sides and bottom with scor-tape to make a pocket and then the whole thing folds flat so you can easily mail it.

Hope you enjoyed it and I'll see you back here on Monday for the October Magnolia-licious Blog Hop--theme is "We're Cookin'"!!!  You won't want to miss it!!

  17. First off your card is ingenious!!! I love everything about it!!

    I have a question for you. If I pay for a subscription to the magazine will I still be able to get the Holiday issue? I would like to see my work in it!


  18. I am lovin this card!!! It looks just like my daughter...and I know what you mean about the whole shopping thing! I was giggling as I was reading your blog...I go through the same thing and I would rather go to the dentist than take a teenage girl shopping!

    You always start my day with a smile!



  19. Well Suzanne, you've done it again. This card is sheer genius. I see another card for my "inspiration" file, as I have several "tween" and teen friends and family. I'm waiting for someone to come out with a keyboard stamp. That would be so cool, but your idea is perfect. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Sharon :o)

  20. Suzanne, I have to echo the previous fellow Arizonian and say "this card is sheer genius"! You always come up with the most clever ideas for cards. And I LOVE yellow, blue and white color bright and fresh!!

    And if the cold gets to be too much for you you're welcome to visit us here is sunny, warm Tucson!


I appreciate all your lovely comments and taking the time to stop by! hugz,Suzanne
