Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog - Kiss Me Layout

Good afternoon everyone! It's time again for the Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog! The new challenge will be posted tomorrow but I'm going ahead and posting mine now. We had some really bad storms last night and was without power and they are saying more for tonight and in the morning. So just to be on the safe side I'm posting this now! Our challenge was to create something using a frog. I used the frog from the new cricut cartridge Sweethearts. Isn't he just the cutest?? The heart and kiss me were also cut from this cartridge. The grass with the cattails were cut from the new Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls (this cartridge is LOADED with extras!) I can't really believe I used these pictures they are HORRIBLE!!! They were taken on one of our many camping trips and well let's just say we don't worry to much about style out in the woods ha ha!! This layout was a real quick and simple layout not alot of extras but it was still fun to do! Hope you enjoy and be sure to head on over to Scrappy Frogs and play along!

Yipee, Yipee, Yipee!! I'm so excited!

I'm sooo excite my layout got chose as the top 5 fave on Sketchy thursdays!!! I just feel honored! I never get "show cased" very much and just excited and wanted to share!! Click here for the post!

Lindsay Stamp & Stuff Halloween card!!

Hello everyone! Guess what time it is? Yep, it's Lindsay's Stamp & Stuff Thursday! I was really worried about getting my card finished tonight. We have had some pretty bad storms this evening and was without power for about 3 hours (Yuck!) This week I decided to combine Lindsay's stamps with my cricut and create another Halloween card. I used Lindsay's Spooky Pumpkins and the crow from her new set that she just released this week Creepy Crow Stamp Set. This set is totally awesome and comes with 7 images all for $5! I colored my images with my Prisma Pencils. I made my own background paper by sponging white and blue ink (trying to represent a night sky). The grass was cut from Zooballoo and Plantin Schoolbook. The fence was cut from Everyday Paper Dolls along with the cat. The tree was cut from the regular Paper Dolls and trimmed to fit the side of the card. The stamp is a Studio G stamp. Be sure to check out what the other DT members came up with this week and also be sure to check out Lindsay's blog for a freebie!!! Thanks for looking!!

Sketchy Thursday Layout - Unique

Hey everyone! Here is my take on the sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to play along! My problem is sticking to the sketch! I took these pictures of the Pelican on our vacation and for some reason they were just screaming for me to scrap them hee hee! I also got happy with the Prima flowers. I don't get to use flowers very often so this was really fun! The frame cut is from the Stamping cartridge and unique was cut from Winter Woodland. I used skittles for the center of my flowers and I'm sitting here trying to rack my brain to remember who the paper is by (sorry) Thanks for looking and be sure to check out Sketchy Thursdays they are giving away some great blog candy! Have a great night!

My 1st Pop Up Layout using Sweethearts!!


Let me start off by saying sorry for the push pin in the first photo (talk about redneck photography here it is!!) I couldn't get it to stand up for the life of me so that push pin is working kinda like duct tape works on everything else! I did this layout for the Sugar Sweet Paper Treat
blog. Hopefully we are going to be up and running again Sept. 15th. Please forgive me for posting now just had to share!! I got the instructions on how to do this pop up from Joy over at Christmas with the Cricut (love their site!!) I thought it might be complicated but actually it was very simple (except I did make some boo boo's that next time I will be aware of!) I'm pretty pleased with the end result and it was soooo much fun to do! Another thing that I thought was pretty cool about this layout is no scraps (other than cardstock) I used every bit of the pattern paper!! That was a very first for me! The paper is by Bo Bunny. All cuts were from the new Sweetheart Cricut Cartridge. The owl is a Martha Stewart punch and the tiny leaves are also from a punch by Marvy. Be sure to check out Sugar Sweet Paper Treat Blog (link on side bar) on Wednesday and see what every one else came up with! Oh, I forgot to tell you what the challenge was duh! We were to use the tree from Zooballo and if you didn't have that cart. just a tree from one that you do have. Well, I have Zooballo but I just got the Sweetheart cart and was dying to use it!!! Thanks for looking and I hope you like!!

I took a small sandwich bag (not even full) of old chains that were twisted or broke and I made $450!!! I just had to share! Not sure just yet what I'm going to do with it but wow what a easy way to make some cash!!

One Day...

Hey! Well, I've been wanting to do a layout forever and just have completely lost my mojo!
I can't tell you how many times I've walked in my craft room turned the lights on looked around and flipped them back off! But I finally sat down this evening and with the help of 52 Sketches...52 Weeks I was able to put something together. This is this weeks sketch and as soon as I seen it I knew I wanted to try it! I know it's probably not to cool to have a big old flower on a boys layout but I had it made and it matched so I went with it! The flower is actually made from a bunch of different sizes of hearts cut from Plantin Schoolbook and mod podge applied to give it a glossy look. I finally am a proud owner of SCAL and I used one of the fonts on my computer for One Day. I've got so much to learn about SCAL so it will probably be awhile before I master any major cuts! The button is from my stash and I just stamped K (for Kyle) in staz on ink. The paper is by My Minds Eye (love their paper!!) The beads are just some I had picked up at a yard sale over the summer (gotta love those bargains!!) Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Scrappy Frog Challenge Blog - Happy Halloween!

Hey ya'll! I'm starting to feel some better (still not 100%) but I do think that I will live (was really questioning it yesterday). Now it just seems hard to get back in the groove of wanting to do anything! I did make this simple little card tonight for the challenge over at Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog. We were to do something 3-D. I used Lindsay's Spooky Pumpkins (already had them colored and cut out hee hee) I cut the cat from the Paper Dolls Cartridge and there's two different grasses. One is from Zooballoo and the other is from Plantin SchoolBook. I raised the pumpkins by using pop dots. The sentiment is a Studio G. Be sure to check out what all the other DT members made and we would love for you to play along!! Thanks for looking!!

It's Your Special Day and a bonus freebie!

Hello everyone! I'm sorry it's been what seems like FOREVER since I've posted on my blog! We were on the go over the past weekend and the last few days I haven't felt good. I really didn't think I would be able to post anything today but I whipped this card up last night before I went to bed. I'm still not sure I'm real happy with the way it turned out but I love the image I used which is one of Lindsay's Stamp & Stuff Owl on a Branch. I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday to help me along. Lindsay is giving away another freebie this week so be sure to check out all the other DT blogs to see who has it! Thanks for looking!
