Good Times Quading

Sunday Funday... what did you do for fun today? I went out for a hike and I did some scrapping.

I used some older Elle's Studio to scrap these quading photos from last spring. 

We had just purchased our second quad so this was my first time out driving one on my own. We had a good day.



I love that my grand daughter fell asleep LOL

Inspired By....garlands

The new Inspired By Challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors to create this fun sledding layout.

I used all CTMH goodies. The colors in the new Holly Jolly paper pack (and the Mix in) are just so pretty and though Christmas themed, I was able to pull off a sledding layout.


The snowflake dies are from last year. I cut the title with my Silhouette and the mitten stamp is a fun new stamp so be sure to check out my website



Now here is the photo, come play

The layout of my page was inspired by the Scraplift Sunday challenge at Paper Issues.

Inspired By.... blankets

The new Inspired By challenge is up and it has a lot of texture.... I do love texture.

I pulled out the colors and the stacked elements for my layout. It was a good way to use up some scraps and the colors were perfect for this photo that I have of my daughter. I used old and new CTMH goodies for this.

The title was cut with my Silhouette

Sweet, warm wishes

And I'm back with another card for the CLC Blog Hop. This one, I think is my favorite card that I have made so far.

All supplies are from CTMH (don't you LOVE that elf?!) (Mix in Paper Pack, Snowflake Embossing Folder, Holly Jolly card making kit) - except the mug and the sweet die.


In the stamp set the elf is supposed to hold a sign or some gifts. I cut out his little hands and adhered to this paper pieced mug from Sunny Studio Stamps. The mug was the perfect size so I had to use it. To add even more interest... I mounted the mug on a wiggler. So fun!

Warm Wishes

I'm back again with another card for the CLC Fall/Winter Blog Hop.

Once again, I am using the papers from the Holly Jolly Collection by CTMH

I used the CTMH snowflake embossing folder for the background and the CTMH snowflake die from last year (as always, my Christmas/winter cards have some sort of snowflake on them) 

The main image (Stampingbella) has been colored and paper pieced. Isn't it a cute image?!


I used this sketch:

Warm Wishes...

I hope to post a few projects for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop. Here's at least one.

I used all CTMH goodies on this one. The snowflake die is from last year and the sentiment is from December SOTM, but all else is available now. 

I mounted the cups on foam circles for dimension. The paper is from the Holly Jolly collection and the Mix Ins paper pack







A couple of Christmas cards

I had to break into my stash of new Christmas stuff and paired it with some older items. Most of the supplies are from CTMH.


I used the new Holly Jolly paper pack along with the Mix Ins papers fro these cards. 

The stamps are all from CTMH, the reindeer is a retired stamp. Of course I had to make him into Rudolph so I added a Holly Jolly embellishment. The snowflake border die is from Poppy Stamps

Next up, any excuse to use a Santa is good with me. I paired the CTMH stamps with a die from MFT.

Inspired By... jars

The new Inspired By challenge is up and I was inspired by the colors (I really stretched the green) and I thought the foliage seemed like puffy snow.... so this is what I created using some new CTMH goodies.


The 'joy' die is from MFT but all else is CTMH.


Here is the inspiration photo....

Autumn Days

I was going to play with my new Christmas/Winter papers and stamps but then I snapped this photo of my grand daughter and had to scrap it. 

I used the Hawthorn collection from CTMH along with the Layered Leaf dies. 

I created the background of layered leaves then stitched them down. 
I then just added bits and pieces from the collection and voila, done. 

I was inspired by this layout at Paper Issues:

Trick or Treat

Most likely my last Halloween project as I'm itching to start making Christmas/Winter ones :)

Once again used all CTMH goodies (I am really loving that stamp set)


I stamped the sentiment and fussy cut it then mounted on foam circles. The image is a sticker that I put on scrap paper then cut out so that I could mount him on foam circles as well.


Short and sweet...

Just a reminder to play along at:

Same colors and papers two different looks

Hey everyone, I am home today with the flu but took a bit of time to play since that really makes me happy :) I played with some CTMH goodies and along with a few challenges to create these very different cards using the same papers and colors.


The colors for the cards were inspired by the Color Throwdown challenge: 


First up, I went with a Halloween card. The strips of sentiment were cut from a Picture My Life card from last years Halloween papers. I then used a stamp from this year. The hat is mounted on foam circles and the main panel is on foam strips for added dimension.


Playing along with 

I then decided to go with a masculine birthday card and once again the main image is mounted on foam circles. 

I was inspired by this sketch
