My daughter and I put together some really quick and simple treat bags for her friends. The topper was a cut from Gypsy Wanderings that we folded over for our base. The Frosty Kisses title is from the Winter Woodland Cart and the penguin is from Joys of the Season. Instead of cutting the facial features out I drew the eyes, beak, and feet on and chalked the cheeks. I think they turned out adorable doing them this way. We added some snow glitter around his feet to give it that bling.
These turned out adorable and everyone loved them. They were super quick to put together! I hope you like them and leave me a comment to let me know what you think.
Here's another simple card using the same ornament cut from JOTS. I used a clear embossing powder on this one and it caused it to darken for a nice effect. I stamped the sentiment and used the same clear embossing powder. I really like the raised shiny look that it gives this card.
I have another simple Christmas card to share with you today.
The ornament was cut from the Joys of the Season cart. I then added some silver embossing powder to the snowflake in the center and the top. It really made it pop. The ribbon is sparkly and adds an elegant touch to this card. The photo really doesn't show how great this card looks.
Hope you enjoy and are coming along with your Christmas cards as well.
This card was a lot of fun to make. I'm still exploring the Winter Woodland cart. There is so much on this cart! This is Snowflake cut2 on page 33. I inked the edges, added some stickles for bling, and used my white pen to add dots around the scalloped square. I used the Let it Snow stamp for the sentiment and then a snowflake stamp and versamark for some more bling. I embossed with some silver embossing powder.
Hope you enjoy and as always I love to hear your comments.
This is showing how I made the title for my Year of a Million Dreams layout. I hope it's helpful and encourages you to try your hand at making your own titles. Think of all the money you can save on those chipboard letters.
Sorry the pictures a little dark. It's hard to photograph glitter.
Oh I had such fun with this card! I did the challenge from the cuttlebug challenge blog. I have never used ink on my embossing folders but that was the challenge and I have to say it was fun, fun, fun. I almost couldn't stop.
For this card I used the snowflake 1 cut from pg 32 of the Winter Woodland Cart. I cut it at 2 1/2" and did the 3 layers in different colors. I added a snowflake eyelet to the center and dew drops.
I rubbed a light blue dye ink onto my Snowflakes embossing folder then put my paper in and ran it through the Cuttlebug. What a fun effect! I'm so glad I tried this.
As always I love to hear your comments and you should try this too. It's addicting.
I've had a lot of questions about how to cut when there are several pieces and putting them all together so I made a video, actually two, to show everyone. This first video is just the cutting out of the pieces and some great tips. I will upload the 2nd video tomorrow of how to put him all together.
I chose Meeko from the Dreams Come True cart to make a birthday card for my daughter. She absolutely loves Meeko and I think he turned out adorable.
Here's a look at the finished card. I did this for the Just buggin challenge. The card stands up. I think it's adorable sitting up on a table to look at.
I hope this helped and I'd love to hear your comments
I finally got my WW cart and I have to say I am in love with it. It has so many cute cuts. This is just the first of many cards I will be posting so be sure and check back or subscribe to my blog so you don't miss any of them. You will definitely want this cart if you don't already have it.
I cut a second tree to pop up. I embossed it with silver embossing powder to give it some bling to match the bling on the cardstock of the background.
Have a blessed day and be sure to tell me what you think Tina
Another quick simple Christmas Card. I used the tree from the Christmas Cheer cart. The noel is a clear stamp from the dollar bin at Michaels. I stamped it with embossing ink and then used silver embossing powder. I love this paper. Everything is bright and cheery. It reminds me of the Who's. You know from the Grinch Stole Christmas. I expect to see one pop up from behind the tree. LOL
I used a sketch from the scrapsketch blog. Be sure and check them out for some fabulous sketches.
This is a quick little card I put together for a good friend for a very special birthday. There are dew drops on the punch outs of the border that was made using the fiskars treading water punch. The stamp is another stamp from the Humorous Birthday set from Inkadinkadoo. I just love this set. Such fun little sentiments.
This is a quick layout I put together. The brackets are from Plantin Schoolbook and the title is from Tinkerbelle. I used Diamond stickles to go over the title and add some bling.
We celebrated our kids birthday at Disney and I had my husband sneek in before the kids got to our room to leave some Disney magic for them. My daughter still believes the fairies were left by Disney for her. They each received new Disney t-shirts and housekeeping had left some towel art on the bed for us so magical things still happen if you Believe.
What a fun layout this turned out to be. I am absolutely in love with my cricut! I just can't seen to scrap without it.
The circle was cut from george.
The scalloped edge was done with the DS and Plantin Schoolbook.
I cut the flower at the bottom from Accent Essentials and then added a brad through the middle. A little Diamond Stickles and it zinged.
I used the Autumn Leaves Flourish stamp behind a couple of the flowers for just a little more flow. I used Lime Green Stickles to go over some of the stems and swirls on the paper and added a few of my own. I really like the bling it added.
The food here at Pinocchio's is fabulous. I absolutely adore the panini. I hear it's gone now though. Boo Hoo. The pizza and salad were good too and a really good value at that. Of course we were on the free Dining so it didn't matter. LOL
I'd love for you to leave me a comment and tell me what you think or your favorite places to eat at Disney!
I absolutely love this photo. We were early to MGM and wandering around when we noticed all the characters coming out of a building to go to their posts. The cast members stopped to pose and take a picture of them all together. I couldn't resist. I walked right up and snapped one too. I don't think they appreciated it very much but I snapped it and left.
The layout was a lot of fun to do. I cut the title from Plantin Schoolbook. I used my xyron to run my letters through and then applied the glitter. I then ran them back through on the other side to adhere to my layout. Very messy but I had to have the bling for this layout. Be sure and check out the video showing how to do the title.
This is a quick little card I put together for a special little boy who turned 3 recently. I used some more DCWV paper from an old stack and another stamp from the Humorous Birthday set from Inkadinkadoo.
This layout just makes me smile and remember visiting my pals at the Crystal Palace.
The paper is from Nana's Nursery stack from Joann's.
The scalloped cut was cut at 10" and on center point using the Accent Essentials cart.
Font is from the Pooh Font cart. I wish the shadow had been a little bigger to show more and I intended on putting the letters on irregularly but forgot when I glued them on. Oh well, I'm in love with the layout anyways. LOL
Hope you enjoy and I love to hear your comments so please take a momment
This is my family enjoying the fun at games at the pool on our last Disney trip. I did this layout for a Disney Challenge but I was too late finishing it. I still need to put my journaling block on. The three flamingos were some eyelets I received a while back when I was doing swaps with one of my groups. I thought they were perfect for this layout. I love the way they look and they were so easy to attach with the crop a dial. I have a video showing how to use this I'll be uploading so watch for it. It was my first time using it and I couldn't believe how easy it set this type of eyelet. Here's a close up of the title. I put crystal effects on the top of the letters to mimic water but I wasn't happy with the overall look still so I added some tiny crystal beads. It's still not the look I was going for but overall I love the layout and I have two more pages done for the Disney album. Yeah me!!
Have an awesome day! Please leave a comment. I love to hear from everyone.
I just love the way this layout came together. I used lots of different products on it.
The owl is from the Happily Ever After cart. (Sorry for the blurry picture, not sure what happened.)
The circles and scalloped border are from the Accent Essential cart. I did the scallops in DS so I could size them the way I wanted.
The stamps are from two different sets. The swirls are Autumn Leaves Swirls and the swirl with the flowers came from Scrappy Cat Flights of Fancy. I love all the swirls along the left side. It added just the right finishing touch.
I used lots of Chestnut Roan chalk box ink on everything.
