Be Jolly

Scrap Sandwich...that is the challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot. What is a  Scrap Sandwich?, you ask. Well, it is just using scraps and layering them up. easy peasy!  All of us paper crafters have TONS of scraps, so this is the challenge to use them up!

Here is my Scrap Sandwich.

I based this from a Thinking of You card I made a long time ago. Actually, it is identical except for the sentiment. I of course used all my scraps and sandwiched them together. (obviously....I like saying scrap sandwich...LOL!)

I hope you can join us this week, and remember to head over to The Cuttlebug Spot and see what the other DT members have sandwiched together.

You Rock

Gosh these weeks just seem to fly by! Here it is time for another weekly challenge with The Cuttlebug Spot.  This weeks challenge is to incorporate feathers. Any type of feathers, the real thing, stamped, die cut, or even metal.

For my project, I used Cricuts Rock Princess cartridge.

I love this heart and wing cut. For the background, I ran it through the Cuttlebug. I had to do this in two steps due to the card stock being larger than the embossing folder. The little border is normally a single svg cut. I copied it, then flipped it, then welded them together. I ran some hot pink embroidery floss through the slits that are already in the design. I stamped the word "you" on the heart. This is another card for my grand daughter Josslyn. Joss absolutely LOVES receiving these in the mail. I can't wait until the others get older and love receiving cards from Oma too.

Good Witch?

I finally sat down and scrapped a layout today. It is pretty simple, but I love the way it turned out. This is my grand daughter Rachel in her Halloween costume. I don't know, I think I might be a bit bias, but I think she is the most ADORABLE witch ever!

I made the witch's hat in Inkscape and cut the title using the Pooh Font Cricut cartridge set on the marker font. I wanted a more uniformed shape for the spattered look, so I dipped the end of different size paint brushes in black paint then dabbed them on. For the tiniest dots, I used a toothpick.

The challenge over at Use It Tuesday is something for which you are thankful for. I am VERY thankful for my grand children. I used up some old Making Memories Toil & Trouble from 2 or 3 years ago....oh my!

Cuttlebug Times Three

The challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot is to use the Cuttlebug in 3 ways. It doesn't have to be 3 different ways, just 3 different items. Such as, two different embossing folders and a die cut, or two different die cuts and a embossing folder. You get the idea.

For my card, I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the card base, and the largest square from the Fleur de Lis Squares by Spellbinders. I then used Cuttlebugs Cut and Emboss Butterflies die and placed it in the center of the square and ran it through the Cuttlebug. I used pop dots to give it a little dimension.

I hope to see your creation on The Cuttlebug Spot's blog this week.

Banners for Special Needs Kids Hop

Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids BLOG HOP, November 10-12, 2012

"In the eyes of children, we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts, we find its meaning."

As joyous as Christmas is for most families, for some, their holidays are filled with worry, medical treatments and tests, and pain -- for their child must be hospitalized or she or he needs long-term care rather than being home with their families. 

For these kids, Santa doesn't slip down a chimney but rather, often comes in the guise of community volunteers who help make the season bright.  

This is the second Christmas season that our own band of dedicated and loving paper crafters have come together to make Holiday banners for children who are too sick to be home for the holidays.  Welcome to the Christmas Banners for Special Needs Kids blog hop!

I am especially pleased that this year, not only have our numbers of generous crafters swelled so our Hop is over three full days, but also, that we have partnered with another great cause and recipient of our banners!

By teaming up with Madison Womack's I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT, the banners our crafters have handmade will be going to the hospitalized children at Children's Hospital Central California

First, let me show you the banner I made for today's post. I'll be sending this to Madison and the children at CHCC who are benefiting from the I Feel the Love project in December:

Aren't this little elves adorable? The are a svg collection that I purchased from My Scrap Chick. I hope I have inspired you to make a banner. If you would like to send a banner, or be involved in the next Banner for Special Needs Kids, contact Ellen. You can find here blog HERE.
