DT Call - closes 06-20-14

Once again we've had to say goodbye to a handful of members... so it's time for another DT call.  We plan on doing this 2x a year so if you can't make it this time, check again towards the end of the year!!

This is a minimum 4-month commitment beginning July 2014.  You are, however, welcome to jump in as soon as you are ready.  We are a VERY laid back team and know you will have a lot of fun with us and feel very welcomed by our fellow DT members!  

Our challenges post every other Friday and run for a full 2 weeks.  The in-between Friday is a mid-inspiration post day.

  •      1 challenge project following the challenge theme to be shared on the Challenge blog.  This project needs to be uploaded to our private DT blog (2) days before your assigned post (challenge or mid-inspiration) goes live.  Our challenges run every 2 weeks so there may be a month where you will be required to create 2 projects.

o   Participate in new-release parties/blog hops for Kitty Bee Designs when applicable.

DT Spotlight - Julie

Julie of I Made A Card is up today to show this sweet

Here's another Kitty Bee cutie from me.  This month I've used Super Panda for my card.

This is for a friend's little boy who is 1 next month!  But this image would also make a lovely new baby card or even a baby shower card.

Obviously I'm a huge fan of these lovely images and apart from the fact they are so darn cute ... they are also ridiculously easy to colour so perfect if you need a quick card.  Even better if you are running late for your design team project again!!

Thanks for looking!

DT Spotlight - Leanne

I LOVE how Leanne of Finding My Groove
made this sweet image
perfect for today!

Morning everyone! It's Memorial Day today and I'm popping in to share this patriotic card I made using some chevron dies, scrap paper and this cute Boys Day stamp. Yes this image is not just for Boys Day, I thought it could be used for any occasion. Glad I was able to use up some scraps for my card and using the chevron die made it super easy to create this pattern.  After coloring my image I fussy cut it and popped it up with 3-D dimensional foam squares. The sentiment is computer generated and I cut the end off to mimic a flag banner.  I hope I inspired you to use your dies and use up the scrap paper to create a simple and fun design.  Any why not top it off with an adorable image from Kitty Bee Designs? You can have your pick in the KBD Etsy store

Hoping you and your ohanas are enjoying a safe and beautiful 3-day weekend.

DT Spotlight - Shirl

Here's a little happy for your Monday
with Shirl of Creations by Shirl

Happy Monday peeps~
Whew time sure flew by it's already my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee.  And I'm showcasing Flower lady bug, she is probably a discontinued digital  but they are so many other cute images in Kitty Bee Designs etsy shop here.  For this card I colored my images with Stampin' Up markers, added stickles, a doodlebug brad to the flower, mask in some clouds in the background.  Drew in some grass, my sentiment die is from Taylored Expression adhered to my washi tape die.  The wee envelope die is from My Creative Time and the insert is from Spellbinders large labels.  Added a mini clothes pin with a lady bug that I bought from BFS like two years ago on clearance. 
Enjoy your new week  and your crafty moments....  See you back here again real soon..
Thanks for stopping by.

That Flower Lady Bug is just too cute and so sweet to build
a little scene like Shirl did!

DT Spotlight - Leanne

We've got another adorable card by
Check it out....

Hey everyone!
Popping in for a quick DT Spotlight today featuring Pleasantly Surprised Bear on a baby girl card.  I had so much fun coloring this one up in non-traditional dark blues and hot pinks.  Adding different colored pinks with different patterns took me outside the box for a bit. Adding the doily was a last minute decision and I think it was a good one as it helped to break up the stripes and polka dots a bit. 
If you need a cute stamp why not stop by the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy store? Hope you have a wonderful crafty weekend!! 
Mahalo for stopping in!

I love all the elements on her card
 from the sweet doily and butterfly to the fab colors!
All of it makes this sweet Kitty Bee Design image shine!

is here sharing her sweet card...

Happy Saturday!!!!  And Happy Mother's Day!  I'm not sure my card would be for a Mom...but I did love this little frog and had to use him!  He's called "Lilypad Froggie".  Summer is right around the corner and soon you'll hear the frogs croaking if you're near water.  And if you're not near water - well, he's just so darn cute isn't he?  Stop by the Kitty Bee shop and see all the adorable images there - but a're going to "OOOOO" and "AWWWW" a lot!!!!!  Have a great Saturday!!!

Thanks to Zella for the adorable use of Lilypad Froggie!

DT Spotlight - Leanne

 Can you believe it's May already?!  Leanne of Finding My Groove 
is with us today to share this fun creation...

Hello everyone!
Leanne here and welcome to the first Monday of May. That means it's spotlight time for me and today I have a Thank you card I made using the adorable Well Hello There Bunny.  If you've been by my blog you'll recognize that Easter egg paper in the background.  I had a small amount of it left so I decided to make a thank you card.  Pretty simple layout, layered a couple of doilies under the image and colored her up pretty quickly.  A simple computer generated sentiment and the card was done.  Easy peasy.  Hope I've inspired you to use up those scraps of left over paper to make a quick card and to make it cute you should definitely use a Kitty Bee Designs image.  Start shopping here.  Mahalo for stopping in!

I love how Leanne used up her scraps to create this adorable card!  
Perfect for those last minute thank you cards we always need.
