Fishing You a Great Day

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! I have a super busy day today so I'll keep my chit chat short and sweet and get right to my project for today.




For my card today, I decided to cut out this adorable little fish from SK Designs. This particular image is from the Ocean Wonders Pattern Set. I cut the image out using my Silhouette, did some inking with some Cat's Eye chalk ink, and then put everything together. I did some doodling with my white gel pen and then created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. The adorable sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. The swirls are from my EK Success punch. I added some pearls, ribbon, and a flower from Wild Orchid Crafts for some finishing touches. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my project for today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by.

Once Upon a Time Layout

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and for those of you on the East Coast, I hope you stayed safe during the hurricane. I have a layout to share with you today, I actually had this one finished before I got ill two weeks ago, but didn't get around to posting it until today. I'm working on our wedding album. I wanted to make kind of a cutesy fairytale album since I feel like I married my prince charming :)








I mixed two patterns from Little Scraps of Heaven for my layout. The princess with the long hair is from the Rapunzel set. The tower, prince, and horse are from the Sleeping Beauty set. I decided to make "Rapunzel" brunette. I know she's technically blond, but I'm brunette and it's my fairytale so I think it's okay :) I cut the grass out using my Cricut and my Paperdoll Dress Up cartridge and the title is from the Storybook cartridge. I cut everything out (the SVG pieces were cut out using my Silhouette), did some doodling with my white gel pen, and then put everything together. I used my Peachy Keen Princess Face Assortment stamps for the faces. I put everything together and used lots of dimensionals. My cardstock is from SU and my DP is from MME. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Hope you enjoyed my layout. Have a wonderful day! :)

Where Have I Been?!?!

Hi everyone! :) I'm so sorry it's been over a week since I last posted. I had a weird health thing happen last week (I'm fine but haven't felt well the last week or so). I have been checked out and I'm fine which I'm SO thankful for. Anyway, I haven't been in the craft room in quite some time, but I should have some new projects to post very soon. Thanks so much for your patience and I should have something new for you this weekend. Hugs!

Have a Haunted Halloween

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! :) I hope you are having a wonderful week. Today I have another Halloween project to share with you (I'm trying to get a head start because I have lots of people I'd like to send Halloween cards to this year).




For my card today, I decided to use this adorable "Frank 'N Bear" pattern from Scraptastical Kreations (you can find the pattern in the A Haunted Halloween Pattern Set). I have fallen in love with this little guy, isn't he cute?!?! I cut the image out with my Silhouette and then used my Tear Bear Face Parts from Peachy Keen Stamps from Peachy Keen Stamps. These little faces are just perfect for all your paper piecing, I just love them! I put everything together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from Target, of all places (this paper was from last year's Halloween collection). I added some spider webs in the corners using my Martha Stewart corner punch. I adhered my image with dimensionals and then added a bow for a finishing touch. The sentiment is from Michael's (Studio G). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my Frank 'N Bear :) Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wondeful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow :)

Happy Birthday Layout

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! Did you all have a good weekend? I sure did! On Saturday, I got to hang out with my pal Marti (Pezadoodle). We went to Vienna, Virginia to an old toy/miniature/doll store. It is such a WONDERFUL store! Just beautiful! My mom used to go there when she was younger and then my mom would take me when I was younger. Marti and I are both working on dollhouses now so we decided to go pick up some supplies. We were there coincidentally on the six year anniversary of my mom's passing so it was truly a wonderful way to remember my mom. So much fun! Then on Sunday, I went with hubby and a friend to see Cowboys and Aliens. I LOVED it (is that weird?) :) I even got some time in the craft room yesterday and I have a birthday layout to share today.






For my project today, I decided to create an 8x8 birthday layout. My cute little bear is from Scraptastical Kreations (the Let's Celebrate Pattern Set). I cut her out using my Silhouette and added some dimension to the balloons using my Cuttlebug and my embossing folders. I created the face using the Tear Bear Face Parts face set from Peachy Keen Stamps. These faces are PERFECT for your paper piecing patterns. Too cute! :) I put everything together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my scrapbook page using SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I cut the sentiment out with my Cricut using the Birthday Bash cartridge. I added a ribbon and heart charm and then adhered my little bear with dimensionals. I used Baker's Twine to tie the balloons to her paw. What do you think?

Well, I hope you enjoyed my layout today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Scrapastical Kreations Friday Challenge

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I'm so excited that the weekend is finally here. Any exciting plans? I'm getting together with a friend tomorrow to go to a dollhouse shop and I'm so excited. I have a dollhouse that I've had for years and I can't wait to get it all put together and decorated.

Well, it's Friday so that means that it's another Friday challenge over on the Scrapstaical Kreations fan page over on Facebook. Our challenge this week was to alter something, anything, using a SK pattern.




For my project, I decided to alter a little miniature bucket that I got at Michael's. I used this adorable Dracula bear from the A Haunted Halloween Pattern Set. My DP is from MME and I tied lots of ribbons to the handle. Just a cute little bucket I can fill with candy and treats for Halloween. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend!

Happy Halloween Bookmark

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. It's been crazy busy here, but I did manage to get some time in the craft room last night :)





For my project today, I decided to create a cute little Halloween bookmark (yes, I'm getting a head start on my Halloween projects as I intend to send a bunch out this year :) ). You could also use this as a tag on a cute Halloween gift or something, it wouldn't have to be used as a bookmark. My cute little bear witch was cut out using a pattern from Scraptastical Kreations. This particular pattern is from the A Haunted Halloween. How cute is she?!?! :) I cut her out using my Silhouette, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I then made my bookmark/tag with SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I added a black sheer ribbon and some black pearls for some finishing touches. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you like my project for today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day :)

Two New Cricut Cards

Hi everyone and Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I had an awesome time Saturday evening with some friends. I hosted a little scrapping party here at my house. We made three cards and talked, ate, laughed, it was so much fun. I wanted to share the two other cards I created for the class (my post before this one was the first card I did for the class).




For my first card, I created this fun, girly card using the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge. I love this cartridge, so many fun cuts. I cut the image out, then ran her dress through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I put everything together and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. I added a ribbon, bow, and some pearls. I then adhered the image to my card base using dimensionals. The sentiment is from an old set, not sure who made it.





For my second card, I decided to use this adorable bird cut from Create a Critter. I cut the bird out, put her wing through the Cuttlebug, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I also added a pearl to the flower in her hair. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from Recollections (Michael's brand). I added a bow and rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful week. See you back here tomorrow :)

Life's Better in Flip Flops

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! :) This has been the craziest week ever, I'm sorry I haven't posted too much. Work has been SO insane and I've also been prepping like a crazy person for a card-making party I'm having tomorrow (I'm SO excited!). I have a card to share with you today and this is actually one of the cards I'm going to be teaching my friends to make tomorrow at the class. It's a simple Cricut card, hope you like it :)




For my card today, I decided to use this adorable cut from the Pack Your Bags Cricut Cartridge (I LOVE this cartridge, it has some of the cutest cuts on it). I cut the image out, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. Next, I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. I used my SU Ticket Corner punch in the corners and added pearls. The adorable sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend. With my class tomorrow, I'm not sure that I'll be able to post before Monday but I promise to have a fun project for you then :) Hugs!

Another Double Paged Layout to Share!

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! Sorry for not sharing a project with you yesterday, but this double-paged layout took me two evenings to complete! :) Monday evening, I cut all the pieces out and planned the layout and then last night, I put everything together. This post is very picture heavy so I'll get right to it.

Second Page:



Some Close Ups:





Side Views:




All of the cuts used in my layout today came from the absolutely adorable Ocean Wonders SVG Pattern Set from Scraptastical Kreations (except the waves, which came from SVG Cuts). I just love this set, I think the little scuba bears are too cute! :) I cut everything out with my Silhouette, ran the shorts on the bears through my Cuttlebug using my bubbles embossing folder, ran the shell through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder, chalked around everything, and then put everything together. The masks of the scuba goggles were cut out using acetate, which looks really cool in person. I did some doodling with my white gel pen as well after everything was put together. Next I created my scrapbook pages using cardstock and DP from DCWV. I then adhered my photos (which are more pictures from our amazing trip to Charleston, SC last summer (we went this summer as well and are going back in October so I'll be doing lots of Charleston scrapping :) ). These pictures are more pictures from my beloved Follly Beach. LOVE that place! After I adhered the pictures, I adhered all of my cuts using dimensionals for some extra pop. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today, thanks so much for reading this far. I hope you enjoyed my layout (I'm still pretty new to scrapbooking so I hope to improve as I get more practice). Thank you so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone and Happy Monday. Did you have a good weekend? We sure did. I had a fun date night with my hubby on Friday night. We had dinner and then went and saw Captain America, which I thought was really good, we both really liked it. Saturday we went to my sisters to spend some time with the family and to celebrate her birthday. Yesterday I ran tons of errands and hubby did some work. All in all, a really nice weekend :)





For my card today, I decided to create a birthday card using the Let's Celebrate pattern set from Scraptastical Kreations. I cut the images out using my Silhouette, ran the tablecloth through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder, put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white gel pen. I also added some Stickles to the candle flames. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co. For some finishing touches, I added a bow, pearls, dew drops, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The swirls were made using a punch from EK Success. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow.
