Sponsor Spotlight at Lollipop Crafts

Hello! Today is Sponsor Spotlight at Lollipop Crafts. Our awesome sponsor this week is eyeCandie Designs! Here's some info about the company:

eyeCandie Creations was created in 2012 to bring kawaii (japanese for cute) style stamps to the world of scrapbooking and card making. We are a family owned business based in Colorado. The day-to-day operations are run by me (Jeremy) and my wonderfuly crafty (not the devious type but the paper crafting type) wife, Candie. I am the artist, while my wife is the brains and inspiration. We are both elementary school teachers. The kids we teach are often the inspiration for my creations. We hope to grow into a company that is loved by all and enjoyed for generations.

Here's my card using one of their many cute images called 'Fly Away Ryan'...

Made a mini-shaped card using Spellbinders nestabilities. Cloud DP is by Basic Grey, Shine on.

Christmas Penguins...

Wow, feels like I haven't posted a project I've done for fun in awhile. Really don't know where the time goes! I've still been crafting though...trying to work on some Christmas gifts because it is literally right around the corner! Got this cute penguin stamp the other month when 'All that scraps' had their moving sale. I paper pieced the hearts using DP by My Mind's Eye - 12 days of Christmas as well as the ornament paper in the back.

Challenge: Sketch For You To Try

I know it's very late but I still wanted to share my swap cards for July!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Lollipop Crafts Challenge #84

Hello! Today starts another challenge week at Lollipop Crafts! Our theme this week is "Fun in the Sun", make a card/project with highlights of summer activities.

I made a card using a Pure Innocence girl making a sand castle on a hot summer day! Paper pieced her swim suit using dotted paper. Did the sand free hand by just ripping the top of the paper and made some dots using Copics. Put everything on the sand on pop dots to give some dimension.

Hope you can join us this week and check out the rest of the DT creations here. Have a great Monday!
