Food Trucks Rock

I've been holding onto a stamp set for a while now, just waiting for the perfect opportunity. Well, this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge is what I've been waiting for!

This week's board is crazy fun -- check out all the elements:

You KNOW you have these elements in your stash, and they're just waiting for this TTTC board -- now pull them out and get craftin'!

I used the top row: Polka Dots, Birthday, and Friend.

The adorable food truck image is from Stampin' Up!, from last winter's Sale-A-Bration catalog. The set is called Tasty Trucks and it's filled with cute little images to accompany the truck. Now, you know I'm sort of in love with the Girl Squad line from Pebbles -- so the stars aligned because that paper pad includes a collage of tiny food trucks! I was inspired by a sample in the catalog and tried the partial die cutting technique after watching a video by Jennifer McGuire.

Give this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge inspiration board a try and create a fun card using one of the rows, as you would the game Tic Tac Toe. Take a quick photo and post it on your blog, Pinterest, etc., then link it on this week's TTTC blog post. We'd love to drop by and check it out!

Thank you for stopping by!

New Year, New Challenges!

I'm ready to kick off this new year with plenty of inspired creativity and this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge has loads of inspiration!

This is TTTC board #30, put together by the fabulous Nicole Watt, and it's dreamy...

I think all of these elements offer so many possibilities and that's what I love about the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This week I knew I wanted to use some items from Pebbles' Girl Squad line, but I wasn't sure where to start. However, that's the beauty of this challenge -- take what you have and see where the inspiration takes you!

At first glance Girl Squad seems pigeon-holed into the genres of clean, graphic and "young". All good things, but I wanted to see where Wood, Lace and Floral fit in. So, here's my interpretation:

Diagonal: Floral, Lace, and Wood

I was also inspired by the January Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge -- it helped me build a cohesive design. All the colors, icons and sentiments in the Girl Squad papers, shapes + tiny puffy stickers make me think of my pre-teen niece, so I think I'll send this one to her next week. Middle school can be tough, and who couldn't use a little encouragement once in a while?!

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll give this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge a try!!
