Well I know I promised you all some BOY cards, but I completely forgot that today was the first day of peeks from the November (I KNOW! NOVEMBER ALREADY!! Can’t believe I just typed that!) release at All That Scraps! This really creeped up on me!!

The images you will see over the next few days will release on Monday November 2nd.

The first set to be shared is called Sweet Fairies. There is a set of 4. They are from a new designer at ATS.

Before I go on, I have to admit they aren’t my usual style. In fact I was a little nervous that I would make them look HORRIBLE! That can be one great thing about being on a design team. It can push you to try new things, and expand your horizons.

I have come to use MANY images that at first glance I wouldn’t think I would like, and was surprised, and then had other images I thought I’d love and found I really didn’t! LOL! Ever have that happen? You get SO excited about a set or image only to get a HUGE block when finally using it? Then you have another set you weren’t sure about and you fall in love? Overall I’m generally in love with everything, but there is that occasional SHOCK set! LOL!

Anyway, despite my nervousness I think I am happy with what I did create with this set.

The image I chose was my favorite of the 4 because she looked MOST like a butterfly to me 😀

Funky Lil Fairy


Well what do think?

She came out pretty cute, I think. Very whimsical.

I wanted a real POP of color so I used Melon Mambo (SU!), Black and New Leaf (PTI). I loved this combo, especially with this whimsical image.

I just let myself have fun coloring her! I love the green hair and eyes, with added stickles! I often get stuck in the “they have to look like real people” kind of rut, and since she is a FAIRY, she can be ANY color. Sky is the limit. So I just had fun letting go of that mindset. It’s actually fun to use different colors if hair 😀


My “leaf” rectangle layer was done using my Cricut Expression: Storybook Cartridge. I layered a sheet of adhesive labels onto the back, then poured on some glitter! I LOVE the look I was able to achieve with it. Loving my Cricut Expression, for sure.

I then added some Prima Flowersfor that lil something extra! I felt like it made her appear to be fluttering between them.

Now it’s up to you to decide if this image is ALL YOU!

All That Scraps is expanding their images, and lending itself to various new styles (as you will soon see).

Thanks for stopping by.

I may have my hands full here today, as I think I spoke too soon! Amber woke up with a headache and I THINK she has a temp. I’m going to let her “wake up” and eat before I take any action. She could just be warm from being bundled up. Fingers crossed! I just sent Alexa back to school, so I hoped that was the END of germs for a bit. I really LOATH this season.

Take care
