DCWV December Stack Challenge

HOWDY ALL!

I played along with the DCWV December Stack Challenge. I had to use this sketch:

and here is my layout:


I used the DCWV Christmas and Winter Stack. I just couldn't quit put a bow with these pics of my grandsons from last year at Christmas. So, I used an ornament that I fussy cut from one of the papers. The snowflakes and title were also cut from paper from the stack. The Bling is from my stash.

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look!

My Pink Stamper Challenges

HOWDY ALL!

My Pink Stamper had an AWESOME 12 Days of Christmas. I don't have any of her stamps but they are AWESOME! Each day of her 12 days she issued a challenge and I REALLY wanted to play along all 12 days, but unfortunately, my head cold and my TO DO list didn't let me spend much time in my scrappy room.

I did manage to get two of the challenges done and decided I would share them. The first challenge was to make a Christmas or Winter project that was NOT for the holidays and to use ANY Cricut Cartridge. I made this card for my cousin for her birthday in January:

I used the Jolly Holidays cartridge and on the inside it says "with Birthday wishes".

I also played along on day 4. The challenge that day was to create a Treat bag with a pink/green color scheme. I made this treat bag for one of the little girls that I babysit and filled it with all things girly! She LOVED it!
I used my Jolly Holidays cartridge and make this little girl to resemble the one I watch.

I am SO Sad that is all that I accomplished in my scrappy room the week before Christmas, but it was a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS around here and I have this week to play in my scrappy room.

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you ALL have a VERY HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!

Cooking With Cricut # 62

HOWDY ALL!

I played along with Cooking With Cricut for their Candles, Wreaths and Pine-cone and Challenge.

Here is my card:


I used Joys of the Season Cartridge. I cut 30 of the Holly out at 1 3/4", then cut each of the leaves off the stem. I then inked them all with Forest Moss Distress. LONG PROCESS!! LOL! I then started gluing them onto a circle frame to make my Wreath. I kept layering them until I got the look I wanted. I then used my Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge to cut 24 circles at 1/4". I added my Merry Christmas from Inkadinkadoo stamps and then put it on Echo Park Merry Christmas paper that I had used my CM Cutting System to get the Scalloped edge to the top of my card. As some of you may know I sometimes "SEE" things my own way! LOL! When I seen the challenge I just COULD NOT do a normal cut and use it, had to do it MY WAY!! hehe!!

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look!

DCWV November Sketch

HOWDY ALL!

I played along with DCWV's November Sketch Challenge this month! I had to use this sketch:

I flipped the sketch and used papers from the Christmas & Winter Stack. Here is my take:

This is my Granddaughter Cricket from back in 2006.
I fussy cut the Journal spot and slid my paper behind it. I also matted my pics like the old time Polaroid . I journaled "Cookies for Santa". I also took the same piece of paper that I matted my pictures on and used a 1/4" circle punch to make all the little dots around the pics, here is my paper:
