Another MSB Preview - A Challenge and a Case :) & SC229

Today is the BIG release day at the Modern Sugar Blvd Store - yippeee!!! Here are two more previews for the images that will be released today, PLUS a challenge ...Phew BUSY BUSY day :) Come join in on all the fun!

Here are the 2 new previews for release today. First up is 'Precious Dance Scene'. I totally looooove this image and I had a lot of fun creating this. How pretty is she!? for this card I used SCS Sketch Challenge SC229 and I flipped panels 3 and 4 to fit my image size. I also cased a card which I never have done before, this is my first case. It was so lovely I couldn't help myself! Here is the card I cased from EmileeAnn. The result was this....

Next up was a project I created with another new image, 'Mr. Devil's Food Cake' ... HOW CUTE IS THAT NAME!!! As soon as I saw this image I knew what I would make. I have a bunch of Wilton Icing Dyes (pictured below) and I needed some type of storage for them. I created this box just for that reason :)

I used stickles for the icing :) and my oversize crystals which I think are awesome.

This new image will also be released today and be part of our exciting challenge!!! I used SCS sketch challenge SC228 and just shifted the main panal slightly left. The sentiment is a stamp by Amsy Ravsy and can be found at AllthatScraps. Please visit the Modern Sugar Blvd Blog anttime after 1pm CST and all challenge details will be posted. Come Join the fun~ :)

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful day!

New releases at Modern Sugar Blvd Today

Today Modern Sugar Blvd Store released two new images!!! being 'It's Time to Clean'. I actually created this card awhile back and it was one of my submissions for making the final MSB Design Team...yippeeeee, which I apparently made lol :)

The other new image is called 'It's Time to let the light In' pictured below.

Swing by the store and check out all the fabulous images when you can and take advatange of the discount that's currently going on..that's right SALE TIME!!!

A New Use for my Cricut Expression :)

My Boyfriend came up with a great idea on another use for my Cricut Expression. He thought it would be neat if I labeled my Container Garden Pots so I knew what was in each without having to use tags (that usually always disappear somehow). I matched them to my new deck cushions (which you can see a lil of in my second picture)

Check it out. Here are a couple of pics

If you want to see the rest just head on over to my Container Garden Blog


Thanks for looking!

EDIT: The deck needs to be stained so badly so I'm hoping to convince my boyfriend to add it to the 'honey do' list for this summer LOL!!!

Modern Sugar Blvd Challenge!

Modern Sugar Blvd is having it's first weekly Challenge!!! The sketch was created by our wonderful fellow Sugar and uber talented Valerie. Here is my take on the Sketch. The sentiment says "You Grow Girl" from Amy Ravsy.


- Use the above Sketch

- Use the following color Combo - turquoise, hot pink and florescent green

- You may use the same digi image as the sample above, any other Modern Sugar Blvd Image, or any other image will do if not!

- Place a Direct link to your card on the Modern Sugar Blvd Blog

The great news is be on the lookout each and Every Saturday for a new challenge!!! Yes we will be doing this weekly. Also make sure you check the other DT blogs (links in my right side bar) at there amazing cards for inspiration!

(On a side note guys. I appologize that this is so late. My PC died over the weekend and I had no computer access at all. Plenty of area's around me provide WIFI but it was the computer I was missing). All future Challenges will be posted on Saturday!

New Releases

Happy Monday,

Modern Sugar Blvd has released more images this past weekend - yippeeeee. YES - more new images!!! lol. Here is the project I created using 'Simply Ava' which can be found at the Modern Sugar Blvd Store under the new line called 'The Sista's' :)

I created a Rainy Day Fund box. Expecially with the economy being as bad as it is lately it's always smart to save for a rainy day (or a shopping spree of craft supplies lol). So as soon as I saw the new image, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I found this wooden box at Hobby Lobby and it was prefect for my idea.

First I sanded and painted the wood with a nice rainy blue color. I used Perfect Paper Adhesive to adhere my paper to the project. This product is awesome. No wrinkles no bubbles (it can be found at Michaels). The Sentiment is computer generated and I added a Prima flower and rhinestone to the center. Ribbon and other rhinestones were added all around the box itself. Here are pictures of the inside and out. I'm not sure you can see it in the picture but I added Stickles to the umbrella, jacket and boots in yellow.

What the box looks like open...

Plenty of room for your spending money, your credit cards, and any other items needing to be stashed for a Rainy Day :)

Have a great day and thanks for the visit!!!
