Artful Delight Sketch ASC 3


I hope EVERYONE had a GREAT Christmas, I know I sure did! I FINALLY got some time this afternoon to do some layouts. Here is one that I did using the sketch from Artful Delight, and this also qualifies for the Open Challenge at Sketches in Thyme.

Here is the sketch:
Here is my layout, I flipped it. This is my Grandson Dominic on Valentines Day 2010. He is wearing the shirt that I gave him and BELIEVE me it says it ALL!! LOL!! He is a HANDFUL!!
and here is a close-up:
I used Crate Paper's Orbit Collection Paper and Rub-ons that I have had for awhile, but thought it was perfect for this layout. Letter Stickers are from my stash. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Imaginisce Bags, Boxes and Books


Have you checked out the Imaginisce Blog today? They have LOTS of AWESOME ideas for Bags, Boxes and Books. WELL, I made this little S'more holder and just wanted to share it with ya'll! I thought it turned out rather CUTE! The pic is a little dark, sorry!

Here is a Better pic! I just LOVE it! I think this would be GREAT for a Lil' Neighbor Helper or any Lil' person. I used Imaginisce Polar Expressions Collection.
Here is the Instruction sheet, if you would like to make your own:
I hope you can understand them, I will try to post pictures of making one tomorrow, but I don't have the best lighting and the pics would be dark! If you want a pdf copy, just post a comment and leave me your email and I will send it to you! Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by!

It's a BUSY time of the Year! TPV Week #14

WOW! Christmas is just a week away! I REALLY wanted to make a layout for the challenge over at The Paper Variety, but I couldn't find the right pics. SO, I decided to just make a tag, using the Red, White and Kraft part of the challenge! So here is my tag, pretty much says it all! LOL!!
NAUGHTY OR NICE?? I received this stamp from my Secret Santa Sandi over at SnC Yahoo Group and thought it was just PERFECT!! Thanks Sandi!!
Cardstock is Vanilla
Printed paper is Imaginisce Cottage Christmas (LOVE THIS PAPER!) I cut the question mark with my Cricut Expression and Makes The Cut program.
Kraft paper for my Stamped image, from Recollection
Button, ribbon and tulle are from my stash.
I inked the edges with a Silver Cat's Eye pigment ink.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you all have a VERY MERRY CHRISMTAS!

Imaginisce Dec. Sketch/Paper Variety Challenge


I got to play!! Here is the layout I made using the Imaginisce December Sketch. It also qualifies for Challenge #13 over at The Paper Variety. The Paper Variety is also having a Design Team Call, and having some Giveaways, so PLEASE check it out, HERE!

These pics are of my youngest Grandson, Braxton who was having a VERY HARD time not UN-Decorating the tree a couple weeks ago, when all the other grandkids were Decorating it! LOL! Little Booger! His Daddy hollered at him and he gave him a look like I AM JUST LOOKIN'!! LOL!! SO, I knew I had to make this layout, he is just SO CUTE!!

Here is a close-up of my banner. It was a File that I have had for awhile, I can't remember where it came from, but I cut it using my Makes The Cut and My Cricut. I used the mittens that Pinky posted on the Imaginisce Blog, and made a .svg file and cut the mittens. I added Liquid Applique to the tops for a little texture. I thought they added just the RIGHT touch to my banner of Christmas Ornaments.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
