Paper Sundaes Challenge #45 - A Sketch

So this challenge asked that you use the following sketch

I really liked this sketch as it allowed for a lot of activity.  I love mixing and matching papers with embellishments.  I love that the you can take a sketch like this and go a million different directions with one change.  Here is what I cam up with.

Vintage Love Blog Hop

We were asked to complete a project using the sketch assigned.  I tried a new digital stamp that I really liked and used papers fitting for vintage.  And have to use lace for a vintage in my opinion.

What a Weekend!

So this weekend I made sure to take time to get some scrappin done.  It was not easy with a 4 year old in tow, but thank goodness for naptime.  So here is what I managed to get done.

So I have been holding on to this sticky fabric paper waiting for the right reason to use it.  Then I got this picture of my niece and I went for it.  She is so Cute.

This card was my attempt at a new technique.  I really liked how these trifold cards looked so I made this one for thanksgiving.

Please share with me what you think about this weekends endeavors.

Feathered Friends

I had all weekend to work in my craft room and boy did I enjoy it.  One of the last projects i did was to make a magnet, using my cricut to cut it(boy was this challenging). I wanted it to be fun and bright and have several different techniques on it. I used WE R Memory Keepers Precious Metal Collection called Silver Linings. For this project I stamped, bedazzled, tied ribbon, used rub ons, and added little tiny beads.  I 3 Birds on Parade Cartridge to cut all my letters at 3.5 " width.  This was a challenge for me but i think it came out cute. Online Crop - Challenge #3

I have long since been wanting to learn how to make these cute easel cards and this contest got motivated to learn.  I used Bo Bunny Winter Joy Collection paper and Polar Ride stamp from Stampendous for this project. I used flower soft for the snow and a 3d sticker I have had for awhile. Purple is my favorite color and Christmas is my favorite holiday so it only seems natural they should go together.  What do you think of the final project?

Scrapbook Challenges By the Number Challenge

The goal of this challenge was to use:

~ 4 Photos
~ An element of red
~ A piece of ribbon
~ Some stitching (machine or hand!)

So I came up with this layout for The Petting Zoo.

I used the Creative Imaginations Debbie Mumm Wild West Collection for my paper. I cut a 5" Cowboy from the Old West Cricut Cartridge, with a piece of rope/ribbon for his hat. And I used the I-rock pearls on his overalls and of course a yellow star eyelet.  I have been unsure what to do with these pictures for forever.  I really love the final result.
