SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas

     Welcome to my blog! Today I have a card I made for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas. I really love this really cute reindeer and thought he would look perfect on top of a Christmas card. I made it look like he is flying over the roof tops on Christmas Eve. I cut the little reindeer out from Cricut cartridge Create A Critter 2. I cut him out at 4". I put some Xmas Red Stickles
on his nose too. I then place him on the card. I know it is kind of hard to see the embossing underneath the reindeer. It is supposed to say Merry Christmas. I embossed with gold powder. I think next time I will do the embossing more then once! :) Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Create A Critter 2
  • Paper: American Crafts
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper "Christmas Biggie"
  • Stickles: Xmas Red
  • Embossing powder: Gold
  • Ink: Versamark clear
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig

I really love this card and the way it has come out. I used the background pattern paper as part of the scene too. I cut the image from Cricut's Winter Frolic at 4".

  • Cardstock: Bazzill

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Woodgrain

Welcome to my blog! Here is my latest spread for the Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Design Team Challenge - Wood grain. I used wood grain not only with my cards but also with some wood veneer I placed on a few of the cards. I found this challenge a fun one to do. I love working with wood veneer. It is such a fun new
embellishment for not only scrapbooking but also on your Project Life pages. So give this challenge a chance and link up your spreads over on the SOUS site.
     It is sad to say but SOUS will be dissolving it's Project Life Design Team. I will be continuing to post my personal Project Life pages but I will be doing it on my new Project Life blog..."Live, Love, Project Life." So please come visit as I will be posting daily my December Daily album starting December 2.

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Fall Colors

Hello and welcome to my blog! Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Fall Colors. I so loved working on this challenge. I love this time of year and all the colors that come with it so I had a blast making my card for you. I knew I wanted a cute little animal so I chose Cricut cartridge "Create A Critter 2." I cut the Thanksgiving squirrel out at 3-1/2". I used Gold Stickles on the buckle of the hat. All the leaves are punched out from a Darice punch. They are about a 1/2" tall. I scattered them on the card. I placed ribbon around the card and pop dotted the squirrel on. I then stamped my sentiment. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Create A Critter 2
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Stickles: Gold
  • Punch: Darice Leaf Punch
  • Stamp: My Craft Spot "Happy Thanksgiving"
  • Ink: Versafine "Black Onyx"
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
Thanks so much for coming to and looking at my blog. It means a lot to me. And thanks for joining us over at Stuck On U Sketches. I hope you all participate in the challenge too for your chance to be in our Top 3! Have a great weekend everyone! :)

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Plaid

   Here is my spread for the Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge - Plaid. I have to admit that this was not an easy challenge for me to do. I wasn't sure if I had any Project Life cards that would work for it because during the month of October I only use Halloween themed cards. But voila I found one which I used it for my title card. There is also some plaid on my second
page in the bottom right corner too. Plaid can be a fun way of adding several colors to your page all on one card. I just added some washi tape to it and my date and week info to make it a fun card. 

     Thanks so much for coming to my blog today and looking at my Project Life challenge spread. Join us over at SOUS by using some plaid on your pages and letting us know by using the link on the website. Thanks again and have a great week! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Trick or Treat

Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Trick or Treat. I love this time of year, especially for Halloween. I really love making all the cute and scary cards and projects.
     For this challenge I created a cute and fun way to give out some special treats to some very special trick-er treat-ers! The box itself is cut from one of my favorite Cricut cartridges, Chic-n-Scary, at 4-3/4". From bottom to top the box measures 4-1/2"h by 2-3/4"w by 2-1/8"d. I then took a white gel pen and did a dash line all the way around the box. I recommend doing this before putting the box together. I took a piece of paper cut to 2-1/2" by 10". I glued it around the box, cutting off the excess, then I glued the box together. The pumpkin on the front is cut at 2-3/4" from Cricut cartridge Mini Monsters. The purple ruffle is a piece of paper cut to 1-1/4" by 8". I scored the paper every 1/4" then folded the paper back and forth. After that I glued the ends together and let it dry. Then I glued the ruffle to a 2" purple circle. When it is completely dried I glued the pumpkin to the ruffle and the whole thing to the box. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart.: Chic-n-Scary, Mini Monsters
  • Paper: Doodlebug (2005)
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • White Gel Pen: Signo Broad White
  • Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Scotch Quick Dry



     I really appreciate you coming to my blog and checking out my really cute Halloween project. Don't forget to join us over at the SOUS Die Cut challenge Trick or Treat with your amazing project. Thanks again for looking at my treat box and have a great weekend! :)

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Use Black, Orange, and White Primarily


     Here is my spread for the Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge: Use primarily white, orange, and black. I have to admit that I totally loved doing this challenge. This time of year is my favorite. I love Fall. I love the changing of the temperatures, the color changing of all the trees around me, and most importantly, my favorite holiday, I love...HALLOWEEN!! I wanted to use a page protector on this one that I hardly ever use and that is Design E. I know a lot of people have a hard time with this pocket page because Project Life doesn't come with 6x6 cards. I like to think I am doing 4 little traditional layouts. I take each pocket and use my 4x6 and 3x4 cards and use them in different ways. I angle them to take up more space and give an interesting look. On this spread I used some unexpected items. In the bottom right corner I used a painted wood embellishment. Also the little leaves were once buttons, I just clipped off the shaft. 
     I really hope you enjoyed my Project Life spread and also hope that you will come join us at SOUS for this challenge. Thanks again! :)
