Peace Card

I created this card for the SVG Cuts Christmas Card Challenge. Check out the great entires on their forum. I used elements from the Christmas Cookie Collection. The poinsetta, cardinal, branch and horizontal strips are from this collection. The Peace Border is a freebie from 11/21.

I used SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot) and all elements are cut on the Cricut. I added some ribbon and finished off the branch with some pearls from Creative Charms. Background paper is from My Mind’s Eye - I Believe Collection.

I am also submitting this for the Just Us Girls Challenge to use a 3D Holiday Embellishment.

Autumn Breeze Collage

Just love the first line of this wedding invite...Like the leaves on an Autumn breeze, our hearts are uplifted by love...

I created this wedding invite collage for a fall wedding yesterday. I also provided photo booth services for the wedding and did an entire scrapbook using these colors and the fall theme. Check out some of my pages and a wonderful venue by clicking here.

Here are a few closeups - love the Creative Charms Pearls for accents. And my all time favorite background scallop shapes are from SVG Cuts. Cut on my Cricut using SCAL (Sure Cuts Alot). Used the Cuttlebug Embossing folder (just peeking down from the top)

Also used some of the new Creative Charms Vintage Marble Brads - they come in a bunch of great colors.

What a great fall weekend!

Leala Collage

Well the routine I use for creating collages could not be followed this time. I usually look up the registry online and get the baby-to-be’s colors and theme and incorporate that into the collage. This time all I had to go on was the room’s colors - navy blue and pumpkin orange with cream. No jungle theme, butterflies or flowers.

I cut the name on the Cricut using SCAL - L font is EclatlCG-Alt and eala font is EinhornICG. I did not like the capital L for Einhorn so mixed it up a bit on the fonts.

I cut the square shapes and added foamcore behind every other one to add interest. Added some cream color square accents. Frame is from Joanns.

Thanks for stopping by - I was without my computer for a week - happy to be back online!

Cute As A Button!

I had the honor to create with the My Little Shoebox Cute As A Button line & Creative Charms. The papers were all girl which took me a bit out of my element but I was up for the challenge. With two boys I don’t scrap pinks, girls & flowers.

I created this layout featuring my great niece Jacalynn. She is cute as a button and was experiencing her first dinner of sweet potatoes in this layout. I added Gradient Gems, Vintage Jewels, Pure Blossoms & Fancy Polka Dot Ribbon.

A few close ups:

I also created a frame for friends of our family. They have four girls that resemble the girls in the Cute As A Button line. Frame is from the dollar bin at Target. The papers and Creative Charms really dressed it up!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Abigail Collage

Well this is my third Jungle Theme in a row - a very popular baby’s room theme. This time I used the Cuddly Animals from SVG Cuts. I took out the eyes on the SVGs and replaced them with Black Gradient Gems from Creative Charms. Gave it a different, more whimsical look.

The frog is a freebie from SVG Cuts - 1/16/10.

The font is Tekton Pro which is fun and great for welding. The collage also feature ribbon and other embellishments from Creative Charms. Buttons are from my stash. If you are new to my collages I use shadowbox frames from Joanns - they are approx 20" wide x 9" high. I use Sure Cuts Alot (SCAL) and my Cricut.

Thanks for stopping by!

Dad’s Birthday Layout

I just finished this layout using Little Yellow Bicycle papers. This was an assignment from my local scrapbook Store - The Crop Shop. (sorry - photos are not the greatest!)

We had a wonderful visit from our nieces & great niece (my sons’ godmoms and cousin) during our summer vacation. They came down to the beach for the day on my husband’s birthday. I did this page to capture the memory.

I’m off to a Friday/Saturday Crop this weekend - can’t wait!
Thanks for stopping by!
