After the Holiday cards!

I made these 2 cards this weekend for 2 friends. I used a Stamping Bella stamp (they had been unused for far too long now that I've caught the scrapping bug!), as well as a sentiment from SU! The dp is by Basic Grey (Eskimo Kisses). Bella's dress and boots were paper pieced with the dp. The snowflake punch is by Martha Stewart, as is the border punch.

Here are close-ups of each:

Christmas Tags

I made these tags tonight using my Cricut and the Very Merry Tags cartridge (which was a limited edition mini-cartridge this winter). I used some glitter paper, cardstock, and rhinestones to put these together. They are attached to some cookie tins, which are gifts for some co-workers. Merry Christmas Week!


Some Bathing Beauties!

What a busy day it was today! We got a lot of snow last night and we spent today shoveling and going sledding. I didn't have time to scrap today, so I thought I'd share a lo I made this week. I used the same supplies as my last lo (the Citronella K & Co pack). These los are next to each other in my album, so I made them to kind of match.

P.S. I know it looks kinda empty on my header at the top, but I'm trying to figure out how to add text to it! Wish me luck!


Surf's Up in December!

I've been working on photos from my trip to Florida last summer. Tonight, I was browsing a bunch of Cricut blogs and it got my Cricut fingers itchy! I decided to pull out "Life's a Beach" and work on those Florida photos! For this lo, I cut the bikini, swim trunks, and title "Surf's Up" from "Life's a Beach," and the circles from "Plantin Schoolbook". The dp is by K & Co, and is called "Citronella." The colors and designs are beautiful and are perfect for these summery water photos. The scallop is from a chipboard pack which had a bunch of different sized frames. I covered it with "Broken China" distress crackle paint. The fishies are a Martha Stewart punch, which I punched out of the glitter paper.

Wow, I just realized that I meant to add some journaling on the orange circle! I'll have to go back and add it in...lol!

Here is a close-up of the title and those swim trunks:

Chip and Dale LO

I made this lo tonight using sketch #49 from 52Sketches. This photo is from my Disney trip, taken with Chip and Dale in Hollywood Studios. The dp is by Cosmo Cricket (Mr. Campy), and BasicGrey (Infuse). The leaves and flowers were punchouts from the BasicGrey pack. I cut Chip and Dale from my Cricut Disney cartridge. They were a bit of a pain because I wanted them to be small, and there were a lot of pieces involved. Making them took me longer than everything else on here! The chipboard alphabet letters are by Heidi Swapp, circa 2005 maybe? I love using up old supplies!
Thanks for stopping by tonight!


Magpie Sketch

Howdy! I made this lo last night following the December Magpie Club Sketch. I did add a few extras in there, like another photo and I skipped the double matted circles, however it seemed to fit better this way. These are photos from our trip to Alaska this summer (bet you didn't think it was summer, huh?) when we toured Tracy Arm, a national glacier park. I used paper by BasicGrey called Eskimo Kisses, as well as the matching chipboard set. The branch and pink tag are cut from 2 different Cricut cartridges (Winter Woodland and Holiday Tags). Some elements were from the December Magpie kit also (music tag, chipboard tree, some paper).

Here are 2 closeups of either page:

For Sara!

Hi! I've been a very bad blogger, and Sara has reminded me of this, so this post is for you Sara! I made this advent calendar for the Christmas season and I thought I'd share it here. I used dp by My Mind's Eye, and all die cuts were cut with my Cricut machine, and then inked with SU! inks. I used the 2 Christmas cartridges I have: Winter Woodland and Joy's of the Season to cut all images.

Here is a close up of some of the tins:

I also made a "December Daily" album for the season, inspired by Ali Edwards. I will share as soon as I have added some pics to it! I'm trying to figure out the best way to print pics each day without going to the photo store. My home printer just doesn't seem to be up to par tonight, though!

Talk to you soon!
