Gloria's September 1st Challenge

It is a miserable windy and rainy day where I live! My husband is sleeping after his night shift, so I am creating! I am having so much fun with rosettes right now! Amazingly enough...I didn't use my cricut for this card! However inspiration did come from Gloria's September 1st Sketch! The circles are a lot of fun to be using for rosettes! I just love the look of these!

30th Birthday Card!

I am getting caught up on my posts! I wanted to share this 30th Birthday card that I made for my sister's boyfriend! I made this card into an easel card! Never tried that before! I am going to try and make another one of these.

I used the plantin schoolbook for the 30 and the elegant edges cartridge for the scallop! The ice cream I made for a swap using the Indie Art Cartridge. It matched the pattern paper sentiment that came from a strip of DCWV paper! I couldn't have matched it more perfectly if I tried! I used my cuttlebug embossing folders to fancy up the scallop! I sanded it to give an intesting effect since it is white core paper! I had fun trying something different!

Gloria's Scrap challenge

So, over at the Canadian Scrap N Swap...Gloria posts two challenges a month! I haven't had a chance to complete the first one. But, here is my interpretation of the second challenge of the month! I really wanted to make a Halloween card. You probably can't tell, but the black background paper is spider web paper. I used a couple of cricut cartridges for this project also. I used elegant edges for the green scallop and mini monsters for the ghost. The stamp is recollections, and the border punch is martha stewart

Gloria's September Crop Night



I had another fabulous evening with Gloria and friends at her monthly crop night. I wasn't as prepared with pictures as I normally am because I thought that I had a lot more pictures than I did. I had forgotten that I had used a lot of the pictures alrady from my printed out collections with the scrapping marathon I did a few weeks before school started. I have the pictures selected, but just have to upload and order them from Costco. Maybe I will do that later today But, I was only able to complete two layouts last night. However, the good news is that I have the photos selected for the next layouts, I just have to now find a sketch to go with them. I have about 8 12x12 layouts to complete for the first album. I have so many pictures that I am going to have two 12 x12 American Crafts binders of wedding photos. The first album is going to be just the getting ready for church, arrival at chuch, ceremony, and then outside the church. The second album will include pictures from the photoshoot between the ceremony and the reception, and then the shots from the reception.

I am so happy that my friends at the Canadian Scrap N Swap message boards turned me to the direction of the Ali Davis Sketches. They are really allowing me to have consistent and uniform pages throughout the album. The way the paper is used throughout the pages allow paper packs to be stretched so much further. I am getting better use of my pattern paper. I am also enjoying using the DCWV paper packs for the themes of this album. These help the pages to have a uniform look from one to the next.

My favourite layout is the Forever Begins today! I reallt like the rosettes. I was abke to play with Glorias double rosette die! This die came out after I bought mine! I must say that I do enjoy the size of those better! Maybe Santa will buy it for me!

Tattered Floral Look With Cricut

So, I had a little fun today with the Cricut! I used the flower cut from Forever Young, and I used my decorstive scissors to change the look of the petal to give it a tattered look. An idea I got off of a you tube video! These were just cut out with regular white cardstock! I inked the edgea with pink and used my flower stylus and wooden skewer to give the shape and dimension to the flowers! I like the effect and these could be done in any color!

Fun with Flower Shoppe

So, I have been having a little fun with my newest Cricut Cartridge Flower Shoppe! It has a whole bunch of fabulous cuts in it to make 3D flowers! I have been going through the book and following the samples. But, some of them I end up making my own style. I made a lot of purple ones tonight because I figure I will use them in my Wedding Album...but..I am going to experimetn with some different colours too. I am arranging them in a special drawer with dividers in it so, I can go to that cubby when I need som ethree dimensional flair! So, much fun to make!
