Circut Rosette Christmas Ornaments

Micheals had Cricut cartridges on sale last week for 29.99. There weren't too many that I wanted or needed! But, I was very suprised when I saw this very new cricut caridge called Ribbons and Rosettes. Rosettes have been around since last Christmas. But, I have only been introduced to them this Spring. I have both Tim Holtz dies and now this one. They all have their unique qualities. But, these ornaments are made with K & Comany double sided cardstock. I purchased this paper in the States on our trip to Bellevue a couple of weeks ago. This paper has a real vingatge feel. But, I think it works for these decorations. I went around the scallop with red glitter glue. The poinsettia is from the Winter Woodlands Cartridge, and the snowflake is a cuttlebug die.

Lisa's November Challenge- Honeymoon Cricut Life's a Beach Layout

My friend Lisa from the CanadianScrapnSwap Mesage board began posting sketch challenges each month. This is the second challenge that she has posted this year. The winner of the challenge for the month gets a 15.00 prize to Micheals. Then you get your name entered into a draw for the end of the year prize if you compete every month. I didn't want to miss out on this challenge so even though I had a whole bunch of new goodies to play with from my trip to Seattle I thought that I would play with this sketch tonight. It was so much fun to play with colours other than my wedding theme or Christmas. I have decided to use Lisa's challenge to scrapbook my Honeymoon Album. So, I was pretty excited to get my second layout done for this. The layout is based on Sketch # 17 from Scrapbook Generations Sketch Support Site. There are some great designers over there, and there are so many great interpretations of the sketch. Lisa was attracted to this sketch because it had stiching...I on the other am not a fan of stiching. I like it on other peoples layouts, but I don't want to take the time to stich a layout. I interpreted the stiching with a flower trail. It was pretty fun to do..I used a whole bunch of handmade flowers from my stash...I particpated in a flower swap this summer an da lot of the flwoers came from there, along with a few that I made. Let's just say that I need to fill up my stash again! EEkss this used a lot.. I typically wouldn't do something like this...but I feel that a challenge is to encourage me to do something that I wouldn't normally do! The other cuts from this cartridge came from the Life's a Beach Cricut cartridge that I have borrowed from my Mom.

Seattle Trip

Andrei and I had a wonderful time away this weekend. It is only our second holiday of the year. We were busy with our backyard this year, and then there were my health issues that held us up from going away this summer. So, we had a chance to escape the city and do some relaxing at the pool and cross border shopping. We stayed at hotel in Bellevue. It was great! Very close to shopping!!! I was able to visit my favourite Mall Crossroads that has a Joanns and a Micheals in it! Wow...what a fun afternoon. I came home with a whole bunch of goodies. Joanns is by far my favourite and always seems to have the best sales. Everything paper crafting was 40% off. Except the Tim Holz texture folders I bought, but had a 40% off coupon for that...then I had a 20% off everything including sale items. Coordinations paper was 5 for 95Cents. Crazy! They also had all this Smash book stuff. Although...I am making my own smash books...I was excited that I could get the special pen and some of the tape to use with the Smash book that I am making from scratch!! Then I bought a few other goodies that I thought would work well with a Smash book.....and then i got to seeone up close and personal to get some ideas for my own creation! I also bought a pack of double sided Christmas paper to make some christmas ornaments. I saw them online...but couldn't make them as all my paper is single sided...It is a paper pack by K& Company...it is very traditional.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge....Bird Project

This weekend I have been trying to get motivated to make Christmas cards. I have a whole bunch of product that I purchased last year, and now it is just trying to come up with some designs that work! I have been looking through all my own magazines, online sights, and even my past projects that I have created. Then I was over at my favorite challenge blog Fantabulous Cricut, and I saw that they have a bird challenge on this week...I almost missed it! So, I started thinking of a design use for a Christmas card. I was inspired by one of my own Vintage style cards here on my own blog, and a piece of patterned paper that came from DCWV Matstack that I purchased last year at Joann's called The Winter Combo. The card uses three different cartridges: Winter Woodlands, fabulous finds for the sentiment cut,  and Serenade. I love when I am able to use my Cricut for Multiple cuts. The snowflake was glittered using my Xyron Glitter maker and MS Glitter called Brillo...I am now off to make a set of these....
Thanks for stopping by!
