Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 16: You're a Cool Friend

Hi Everyone!  My friend and I got together again this month to play along with the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 16, to use the oldest Lawn Fawn Set in my stash.  My oldest set is the 2011 Set Making Frosty Friends... still one of my all time favorites.  Here is the card I made using the set...

I just love these cute little snowmen!  I made a little scene with the snowmen using the Stitched Hillside Backdrop Portrait Dies.  I paper-pieced the scarves and ear muffs using papers from the Perfectly Plaid Chill, and Knit Picky Paper packs.  To finish it, I embossed some of the snowflakes from the stamp set and added some Stickles to the hillside.  

You can play along with Challenge 16 through November 19th.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Thankful For Challenge

Hi Everyone!  Today I have my layout for the Thankful for Challenge over on the Doodlebug Design Blog.  My husband and I recently celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!  It feels like just yesterday!  I decided that what I'm most thankful for is us, the family and life we've made!  I created this layout using paper and elements from different Doodlebug fall collections to celebrate.  Take a peek...

I'm not a big journaler but I felt I needed to add something, so I used one of the Doodlebug Create-a-Card cards as a mat for my photo.  It opens up to show some "hidden" journaling.  I also love the tab, it was a place to add a little more information.  I added a few embellishments including a sticker from the Flea Market This and That Sticker Sheet and one of the Cute Clip Flowers.  I created the notebook page by welding 2 of the Sun Notepaper files from the Spring Things cut files and changing the line colors using my Silhouette.

The background paper is the Maple Gingham Linen Petite Prints.  The other papers are from the Flea Market collection.  I think this is one of my all time favorite collections!  As for my embellishments, the tag is from the Flea Market Labels & Tags, the leaves are from the Mini Leaves and Acorns Craft Kit and the mice are from the Flea Market Odds & Ends.

I finished it off with my title, using some Teensy Type Letters in Swimming Pool and the fun new Abigail Cardstock Stickers in Bumble Bee.  
Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog for the next week to check out more of the Design Team's Thankful for projects.  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design Cut Files: Meowy Christmas!

I was so excited to see the Doodlebug Design Milk & Cookies Cut files in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop!  I had to start playing immediately!  I fell in love with the Milk & Cookies Kitty file, and decided it would make a fun card.  Take a peek...

Using my Silhouette I created a card base, and added a cute little ornament for the kitty to play with... we all know that's what happens with cats and Christmas Trees!!  The papers are mostly Gingham Linen Petite Prints and cardstock from Doodlebug Design.  I also added a little Doodlebug Chunky Glitter to the hat.   He's just so cute!  All of the Milk & Cookies Files are available in the Lori Whitlock SVG Shop, and will be coming soon to the Doodlebug Design Gallery in the Silhouette Store!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lori Whitlock: 3D Pumpkin

Hi Everyone! Today I have a cute 3D Pumpkin for Lori Whitlock, perfect for Fall and Halloween gift giving or decorating!  Take a peek...

I used Lori's 3D Pumpkin Short  (here in the Silhouette Store)  to make this adorable box.   This box also comes in medium and tall (here and here in the Silhouette Store.)  Lori also has great assembly directions for these pumpkins here.  The paper is Doodlebug Design's Ginham Linen Petite Prints in Coral.  The best part, the pumpkin opens up to hold some goodies!

This would make a fabulous gift for a friend or coworker.  It would also make a great seasonal centerpiece!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Doodlebug Design: Washi Tape Challenge

Hi Everyone!  I'm up on the Doodlebug Design Blog today with my Washi Tape project.  My daughter is in college and her whole dorm room has been carefully coordinated in her favorite colors.  I decided I'd make her a fun frame to add to her decorations.  Take a peek...

I started with a chipboard frame I've had in my stash for years.  I painted it white since the color of the frame somewhat shows through the tapes.  I then proceeded to cover the frame with various Doodlebug Washi Tapes in Swimming Pool, Lily White, Bumblebee and Grey.  For the window, I initially covered the space, then turned the frame over and cut out the window using a craft knife.

I finished the frame with a couple of cute stickers from the Spring Things Icon Sticker Sheet which I popped up with some foam tape.  I added a cute black & white photo of my daughter and her friends and it was done!  It looks so cute in her dorm!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #15

My friend and I are keeping our resolution to get together and craft at least once a month!  We've been playing along with the Lawn Fawnatics challenges, it's been so much fun!  We worked on Challenge #15 this week, which was to make clever gift packaging.  This is what I created...

I used seven of the Tiny Gift Boxes to make a little Christmas Tree.  I decorated it with stamps and dies from the Trim the Tree set, the star from the Large Stitched Journaling card, Small Stitched Square Stackables, Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and the kitty Stamp and die from the Meow You Doin' set.  

The best part is that all of the little boxes open to hold a little treat!  You could even make an entire Christmas Countdown calendar doing this if you wanted!  That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
