Mid-September Inspiration - Christmas Scene using Kraft

It is time for another inspirational card for Christmas All Year 'Round and I chose the stamps set from D.R.S. Designs for a card layout.


Sometimes I decide to use something that is sitting in my craft storage bin; and this time I dug out my, I don't know what you call it, but it makes the card base look corrugated like a cardboard box.  I had a left-over piece of red card stock in my stash I used to layer over the base.  Placed the cut out snow globe with the stamped images inside the globe to give it the appearance of a snowy-city.  Water colored the base of snow globe with distressed ink - Tea Dye which I love.  Placed a red ribbon over the base with silver brads on each end.  Also placed silver brads (Stampin! Up) on the 2 corners of red mat.  I stamped Merry Christmas from Teeny Tiny Words set by Stampin! Up and punched out with the word punch.  Added silver liquid pearls to represent snow flakes in the globe.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me and hope I inspired you with my creation.  Happy crafting to all.

Halloween Mini-album

I finally finished the Halloween Mini-album last evening, and here is the results....

Halloween Mini-album
by Creative Kuts

The mini-album kit was supplied by Cheryl of Creative Kuts to those that would like to create this cute mini-album.  We started with the black base, than the pages we cut out and decorated.  From there we received the front and back cover cut file, cut out and decorated, along with the book binder.  The final cut file was the hat, pumpkin and cat.  

Since no eyes or mouth pieces was supplied, I thought, hmmm - I will use the movable eyes; and than using a dime I traced around the edge to get the mouth; and brackets for sides; and a squiggly line from the nose down toward the mouth.  And that completes the mini-album.  

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and happy crafting

First Challenge at Creative Cutting Challenges - Anything Goes

Hey there, we're back for another year of challenges at Creative Cutting Challenges and our first challenge is Anything Goes.  I elected to create a scrapbook page of my beautiful granddaughter, and used the title, "Be-You-tiful' by The Creative Pointe

Cutting file

Supplies used:
  • 12x12 card stock for base of scrap page
  • Photo I opened up in photo editing software, using a cluster frame from PixelScrapper Digital Scrapbooking
  • Flowers from a flower swap found on Facebook page
  • Design paper from personal stash
  • I created the banner tag, and punched the bottom border with a Martha Stewart hand punch.
  • using my white gel pen, I 'stitched' the edges of mat
  • beads on top border from personal stash.
  • Silhouette Cameo used for cutting file and framed image of granddaughter.
Tried to keep the layout simple for granddaughter's scrapbook.  The photo was taken of her, by her mother, while in Korea during the winter weather.
