Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #8 - Holidays

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I don't know about you, but I can't seem to get caught up with all that needs to get done before Christmas. I haven't seen my craft room in days. Ugh. But - it is time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land. This week, the theme is Holidays using a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries.


For this card, I used heavyweight cardstock from The Paper Studio for the base. All of the other papers are The Paper Studio as well. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. The center oval is a La La Land Stitched Elements die. It was cut twice...once in black for a shadow. The tree is a Taylored Expressions Trim the Tree die. It was covered in Sparkle N Sprinkle Victorian Christmas glitter. The bulbs were covered in SNS Fire Engine Red glitter. The Scarlet Red crinkle ribbon is from My Craft Spot. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die, covered in SNS Victorian Christmas glitter.


The poinsettias are Spellbinders Poinsettia dies. The pine cones and berries are from Hobby Lobby.


The inside oval is another La La Land Stitched Elements die. Merry Christmas is from Die-Versions Sweet Wordlet die.

Meet Faith!!

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!! I have someone special I want you to meet!! This is Faith...


Faith was sent to me by my dear friend Diana of Dl.Art, and her elf friend, Hope. Faith made the long trip from warm California to the chilly temps of Indiana...she didn't complain, but I don't know that I would have been so nice ;) The first thing she wanted to do was pierce her ears, so she is sporting some fashionable diamond studs ;)


Next, Faith wanted to pen a note to her Cali friends to let them know she arrived safely. So she commandeered my laptop and typed out a quick note.


As I was giving her the tour of our craft room, she couldn't wait to play with my new Explore, so she ran over to turn it on.


But soon her long travels took their toll and she was exhausted. So I set her up in the barcalounger with some homemade Chex mix and the remote and she was one happy elf :)

Stay tuned for more elf adventures with Faith!! Thank you again, Diana and Hope!! I'm linking this up with Diana's Elf Antics Linky Party.

Have a wonderful weekend :)

Celebrate the Season!!

Happy Thursday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's my turn to post on the My Craft Spot blog and I have a Christmas project with you today using several of my favorite MCS products.



I had so much fun putting this card together :) I won a giveaway from my sweet blog friend Patti of Cherish Each Precious Day for a copy of CardMaker Magazine's Interactive Cards book. There were so many creative folds and I chose this one to try first. The papers are from The Paper Studio. In the center of the card, I used MCS Tiny Doilies dies and popped them up with foam tape for dimension. The butterflies are from the Small Alphabet set. They were covered with sugar coating. The banner is a Ribbon Banners Wavy die. Merry Christmas is from the Naughty or Nice stamp set.


Here comes the fun part...when you pull the tag, hidden sentiments are revealed!! I couldn't even begin to tell you the steps it took to create this card...there were some sketchy times when I wasn't sure it was going to work at all ;)  Vintage Vanilla Crinkle Ribbon and Cherry Red Twine were used for the tag. Celebrate the Season is from Tiny Tags Christmas. May The True Spirit of Christmas sentiment is from Joy Filled Christmas.

1. DL.Art - December Linky
3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday  

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great Thursday :)

Happy Birthday

Happy Friday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions Blog and I have a birthday project to share with you using several Die-Versions dies.


For this card, I used a Whispers Summer Flowers Background die as the base. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA.


The butterflies fluttering about are Wee Petites Buggy dies, and they were covered with sugar coating and popped up with foam tape. Gems were placed on the centers of the flowers.


For the Happy sentiment, I used the largest button in the Wee Petites Button die set. Birthday is a Sweet Wordlet Birthday die. A Whispers Lacy Dots die was placed under the ribbon. It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but Whispers Daisy Flair dies were cut in vellum and tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.
