CCC #053: Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to the LAST Catherine and Cathy Create Cards Challenge! Cathy and I have decided life is just TOO busy to try and keep up with everything, so we have decided that after next weeks Tags Challenge, CCC will be closing. We have had so much fun playing along with our Design Team and all of you - thanks so much for the support!!

So my last Cards Challenge is “Walking in a Winter Wonderland” … anything wintery, snowy or freezy goes!! Take a look at what I came up with!!

I am using a couple retired items on my card today. I still LOVE the Festive Flurry framelits from last year, and i thought the Silver Foil paper would be gorgeous to use with them! The awesome Mingle All the Way image fits so well in the 2-1/2” Circle Punch, and just layers beautifully onto my silver snowflake. So cute!! of course, I had to use some of the beautiful Silver and Snowflake Frosted Sequins to jazz it up. Love it! I used last years Winter Frost DSP for my simple background … love those stripes!!

Well that is all for me today! Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

CCC #052: December Challenge “Home for the Holidays"

Hey Stampers,

Welcome to our December Challenge! We are showcasing December Home Decor this month - come on over to Catherine and Cathy Create to see all the inspiration our Designers have for you!!

I thought a fun Christmas Ornament would be cute. So I made a cute 3D star using my Star Framelits. Love how it turned out!!

CUTE right!? I cut 3 of the 2nd largest start with the Under the Tree DSP. LOVE the heavy weight of that paper! I just scored them down the middle, and put them all together for this 3D star! The Red Glimmer Paper is so lovely with the Joy thinlit from the Wonderful Wreath framelit dies. Just added it with a couple glue dots. Cute! A 1/8” Hole punched in the top has my Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine so I can hang it on my tree. Cant wait to make more of these fun guys for my tree!!

Thanks a lot for coming by today. See you soon and Happy Stamping!!

CCC #050: "Delighted with DSP" November Cards Challenge

Hey Stampers,

I have a quick and easy card to share today for our November Cards Challenge over on Catherine and Cathy Create! The theme this month is Delighted with DSP. Especially this time of year, I am looking for lovely cards that are quick to make and easy to re-produce. And this card is one of them! Choose a gorgeous pattern of DSP and make it the star of your card! Take a look!!

With 48 sheets to use, the Trim the Tree DSP Stack is a great go to for this type of card! This Garden Green and Pistachio Pudding snowflake pattern is definitely my fav of the bunch. Love it! And a green snowflake!? So unusual!! So I paired it with some lovely Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon and a sentiment. Mine is from the vintage Greetings of the Season set. This beautiful Merry Christmas fit perfectly in the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelit, and i just added a Candy Dot to finish it off. So easy!

Well that is all for me today! Please come by CCC and play along with us! You would win a fun prize!! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping!!

CCC #049: Thankful for Fall November Challenge

Hey Stampers,

A new month means a new challenge over on CCC!! Our challenge this month is Thankful for Fall, and I knew I wanted to create a fun layout. I have been really back into my scrapbooking lately! Yay! My little family had an awesome time at a local farm a couple weekends ago. They have a pumpkin patch, a corn maze and a petting zoo - Jackson had a ball!! So I thought it would be the perfect occasions to match with our theme! Take a look!!

I have not much of the awesome Motley Monsters DSP left over father my busy Hallowe’en, but I am so glad I had that small scrap of the pumpkin design! Love it!! Paired with the woodgrain and Bermuda Bay stars, it looks so awesome!! Of course, I had to use the Fall Fest bundle again. Those pumpkins (and coordinating framelits) are my fav ever!! And of course, with awesome pictures of my family, this page turned out so great!! Love it!!

Well that is all for me today! Please come by to Catherine and Cathy Create to join us! You could win this months fun prize!! Thanks a lot for dropping by and Happy Stamping!!

Happy New Home!

Hey Stampers,

One of my best friends is moving into a new house this week! Her and her husband have building their dream home for a long time, and its finally ready! Myself and my hubby went to visit last night. We have been there before of course, but it seems so real with their furniture and everything there too!! So I made a cute card (of course) using the awesome Holiday Home stamp set. I just love it! Take a look ...

I just love paper piecing. Thats when you stamp the same image a few times on different card stocks and cut out the pieces and layer them together. Like I did on my cute house with the brick, door, windows and roof! Adorable, right?? I just love the color combo of Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Hello Honey and Soft Suede. I made the base of the house in the new Kraft paper too, which so such great. I wanted a kind of rustic feel, so instead of using Whisper White I used the Naturals White. SUCH a difference! I just love it.

Well that is all for me today! Thanks so much for dropping by. Have a great day and Happy Stamping!!

Bloom With Hope Birthday

Hey Stampers,

Sharing a card using the awesome Bloom with Hope hostess stamp set today! I just love this fab set, and the Blendabilities markers are just perfect for colouring it! Take a look!!

There was some major fussy cutting involved with this card, but I think it really turned out beautifully! Those leaves were kind of difficult to cut out, but it was total worth it!! I am getting a little better at colouring with the Blendabilities - they are so fun to use!! I just love the nice sentiments in with this set as well. Love when sets have both images and words!!

Well that is all for me today! Thanks a lot for visiting. Hope you have a wonderful weekend and Happy Stamping!!

Twas the Night Before Christmas ...

Hey Stampers,

I have been in SUCH a scrapbooking mood lately!! And its a good thing, because I am pretty behind in my memory keeping. Just doing last Christmas!! But, I am really loving the fun pictures I am using and cute layouts I am making! Thought I would share this fun page documenting Christmas Eve from last year. Take a look …

I just LOVE the traditions surrounding Christmas. The rituals of hanging up the stockings, putting out cookies for Santa and waiting for Santa himself to arrive! My son loves them as well. I thought I would combine these fun events into a fun page. The paper is just some stuff from my stash - but I paired it
with some cute SU products. The retired Festive Flurry framelits make a fun window for some Champagne Glimmer Paper to pee through. I also lot my glimmer Tree using the Tree Punch. And the Good Greetings stamp set adds a fun Christmassy element too!! But I think my MAIN must have for scrapbooking lately is the awesome Project Life Day to Day stamp set. I use it on EVERY page! I just love the days of the week, months and number stamps. So excellent for adding the date to pages!! Love it!

Well that is all for me today! I hope you liked my scrapbook page! Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Stamping!!
