This layout is based on #232 sketch over at Creative Scrappers. I used up some more of my older papers.These are from the DeLovely deck by Cosmo Cricket. They matched perfectly with Kalista's dress.

Sorry, once again I just couldn't get good lighting for the picture. I so need to take a photography course.  LOL

Halloween, use purple, black, and orange, that is the challenge this week over at The Cuttlebug Spot. I designed a layout. I haven't added a photo yet, I'm waiting to take pictures on Halloween.

The haunted house is a svg cutting file from Halloween Town collection over at the Digi Bistro. The bats, fence, and cat are from the Disney Halloween and Tricks and Treats cut and emboss Cuttlebug dies. I sanded the embossed parts to highlight them. The ghost I made in Inkscape based on a free clip art I found on the web. The pp is from the Toils and Trouble collection by Making Memories. An oldie but goody.

Hope you play along with us this week. Thanks for stopping by!

Turkey Place Setting

Time for a new challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot. And let me tell you....this one sure challenged me! The prompt this week is to make a 3d project which includes a turkey. What in the world was I going to make?! My mind just hasn't been functioning lately with all these complications I am having after having surgery. I was really stumped! 

I started by making the turkey in Inkscape to cut on the Cricut. Now, what to do with him. I have seen these cute paper pumpkins all over in bloggy world, and really like them. So I came up with the idea I could combine the turkey and pumpkin to make my place card holders for Thanksgiving dinner.

Be sure to head over to The Cuttlebug Spot and see what the rest of the team created.

Hello Princess

What's on your desk Tuesday?  That is the challenge this week over at The Cuttlebug Spot. I had these items stacked on the corner of my table awaiting to be played with. One of the stamp sets and the papers came as a bonus with a magazine that one of the girls in the scrappy group sent me so I would have reading material as I recoup from surgery. (thanks again Christy!)

When I first seen them, I knew I was going to make a card for my grand daughter Josslyn. She is 4 1/2, and LOVES when the mailman brings  her mail.

This is also for the Link up for Pink 2nd Annual Link Up Party. Though this is a Breast Cancer Awareness blog, all projects are welcome as long as it's focus is pink. And if you would like to donate your project, they list an address for  you to send it in. I think this is great. Shows our support.

A New Blog

I have a new blog. But don't worry, I'm not giving up this blog.

Along with my love of scrap booking and crafting, I love to redo old furniture and accent pieces that may other wise be heading for the landfills and reclaim them to use in today's decor.  So I have created Studio 718.

I hope you will come follow along with my trials and errors.

Thanks for stopping by!

Over at MME, one of the challenges is based on the favorite saying of Tim Gunn on Project Runway "Make It Work" . If you watch the show, then you know they are always throwing in a surprise and the designers have to complete a second coordinating look. Well that is what we have to do for MME's challenge, create a layout and a card that fits in. 

Here is what I created
I used the Good Day Sunshine collection that was gifted to me by my scrappy friend Abby.

Every time I look at this picture of Dax, it makes me smile. I can't remember what he was playing, but I'm sure it was some type of super hero.

Here is the coordinating card

I just love this picture of Dax walking down the train tracks. They reminded me of when I was a kid and would see the hobo's hanging around the tracks awaiting the next train to hop to take them to their next destination.

I followed September's sketch 28 over at Boys Rule and used some more tid bits that I have left from Simple Stories Awesome collection. I LOVE that collection and have been hoarding every lil scrap. I actually sat and made little embellishments for a future layout with the tiny scraps I had left.

Thanks for stopping by!

It's Fall

It's back! The Cuttlebug Spot's first challenge for October went live today!

Don't you just love the colors of fall? I know I do. I never have a problem working with fall color combinations. Seems that I gravitate towards them even on a bright sunny summers day.

I already had this on my to do list before learning the prompt this week is Fall. I wanted to make some type of photo displays that I could sit out with some fall decor. 

I decided on using the format that one would make an easel card. for the ease of being able to fold it for storage after the season. I will be making these of all four of my grandchildren. I think they will look great once I stop procrastinating about decorating....LOL.

Hope you can join us this week. Thanks for stopping by! Pin It
