Let's Go To The Hop!

The Holiday Hop at Sketch~N~Scrap. Have you been following along each day? Today is my turn to feature my project that I created for the hop. I chose Halloween as my holiday to represent. I love Halloween. Which is surprising since I'm a big scardy cat of all things creepy and crawly.

I decided on a mixed media canvas. (see the video link below)

I really had a good time creating this. I actually have a good time creating anything that includes getting my hands dirty...LOL. To see step by step on how I created this, be sure to check out my video HERE.

Now, on to the prize. I am giving away a Freshly Picked Cricut cartridge. 

However, there is a certain requirement to be eligible to win. You must play along with any of the October sketches from Sketch~N~Scrap. Then come back here and post what number your entry is under in this posts comment section. I will be picking and announcing a winner November 1st.  Good Luck!

Yep, it's that time again. Time for another sketch reveal from Sketch~N~ Scrap.

the sketch

 my take

 Of course if you play along, you do not have to make it Halloween themed to qualify for the prize.

Dax made the cutest spooky skeleton last Halloween. He looked like he was a decoration when he leaned back against the tree.

The pumpkin is an svg cutting file from BirdsCards. The skeleton was a freebie from I can't remember where. I cut him and the spider web out of white vinyl. I aslo cut the title from vinyl using a dripping marker font. For the journaling bones, in SCAL I took a rectangle and heart shapes and union'ed them together, then stretched them to the size I wanted.

I hope you get a chance to play along. Also, be sure to check out the card sketches on the 5th and 20th of every month.

Day 9 - Pre K

For today's project, I have a page for Dax's  school album. Here is his Pre K page.

I did hidden journaling. I will probably do that throughout the whole album.

Day 8: P.A.D

I have been sick, so that is the reason for a lack of a project for the past few days. I was feeling better this morning and surfed the web for some inspiration. I ran across Birds Cards new post of a pumpkin treat bag cutting file. I thought they would be cute to make for Dax's class for Halloween.

Here are a couple I have done so far. Now, just 22 more to make...LOL

 (sorry for the glare of the flash)

Birds Cards has some awesome free cutting files, as well as, free digi stamps and other things.

Day 4: P.A.D

Today's Project A Day project is the start of a mini album. I only had time to get the cover done today.

I'm using Simple Stories Smarty Pants collection for this mini. This is going to be an album of Dax's school pictures, beginning with Pre K and going through 12th grade. Now, he is only in 1st grade, I sure hope it doesn't take me 11 years to finish it...LOL!

P.A.D Day 2 & Day 3

Time got away from me yesterday and I didn't get my Project A Day project upload here to my blog. I was beginning to think I was going to run out of time today

Day 2: DIY Photo Canvas
 Sorry for the poor photo and the streaks. I was trying to get it all finished yesterday and couldn't wait for the mod podge to dry.  I made a step by step video of how I made this.

for some reason, I couldn't get the video to embed here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Day 3: Painted Frames

I didn't have a chance to make a step by step today. I hope to add it at a later time.  
I bought these framed from Walmart in the craft section for 4.98. They were bare wood. I designed a stencil in SCAL and cut it out of contact paper on the Cricut machine. Then painted then removed the contact paper. 
These are going in my bathroom also. I haven't gotten any photos in them yet. I need to find something. Hey, maybe I could get my super talented scrappy friend Danni to color me some images....hmmmmm   LOL

Day 1:October 2013 P.A.D

I was really excited about participating in Oct 2013 Project A Day, an event on facebook. I got right up and got busy on my project.  

For today's project I decided on an altered candle. I am redoing the main little bathroom and I decided to make some decor. I have had this beat up candle literally for years. It needed to go in the trash bin, or get a much needed makeover.  Guess the makeover won out. I think it turned out super cute. 

Here is a step by step

 It started out as a green candle

Since it is for decoration only and I have 
no intentions of burning it, I gave it a
 couple coats of grey acrylic paint.

I picked out a few papers from my 
stash that fits into my color scheme.

I wrapped them around the candle and glued 
the edges together. Then added some canvas 
twine to finish it off.  I also painted the brass 
candle holder white so it would fit in better.

Thanks for stopping by!

Big Nose/SNS

WOW....where did September go? I swear, I need to stop blinking. As a new month begins, it brings with it a new sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap.

the sketch

my take

I used Simple Stories Say Cheese collection. Though it is mostly geared towards Disney, it has a lot of fun elements in it for non Disney projects. I love the colors in the collections.

As always, be sure to go check out what the other design team members created. And get your entry  posted for your chance at the prize from this months sponsor.
