Christmas Card using Christmas Cartridge/Stamp

As a kid, my brother hated dolls with spooky eyes. Fast forward a few years-he still hates dolls with spooky eyes. So naturally when I saw this image of a doll on the Christmas cart from Cricut, I had to try it. To make up for the spooky doll I used a stamp from Inkadinkado-love their stuff. And used coloring pencils, ink and stickles to embellish the stamp, matted it several times, and also used a MS punch for the border on the white cardstock. I also added a piece of ribbon with a very small amount of gold in it to give it a little "vintage" look. Look closely at her eyes...she's looking right at you!

Vrooom! /Mickey & Friends/ Boy Birthday Card

The original design for his card was made by Maren Benedict. Of course, I tweaked it and made it a lil' different. The truck is from Mickey & Friends, and the Windmill is from some other cart (totally forgot). I also used a stamp for the tracks (it's supposed to be a ribbon stamp!) and the truck on the cover slides back & forth!!! That totally made my day, 'cause I'm easily amused. I also used some Tim Holtz and Stazon ink, and some other stuff. Hope ya like! See? It starts here... & ends here! Get it? Loads of fun?

Fall Cards/ Smiley Faces/Blackletter

The little leaves are separate stamps. I used pop dots for dimension. The pumpkin is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Oops! Wasn't dry yet! I used the free download of Smiley faces for the Pumpkin card and Blackletter for the frames on both cards. Paper is Card Kraftstock and DCWV Fall collection. I also used Glaze medium on the pumpkin leaf and Tim Holtz distress ink for the edges. TFL!

Backpack Mini Album using Tutorial from Kathy King

Ok, 1st I have to say THANK YOU! To Kathy from  Paper Phenomenon  for sharing her creativity and files and laughter!! This project was entirely her idea. Happy Birthday Kathy! 2nd, I own a Mac, not a pc, therefore getting files onto my "G"-impossible! Soooo after much waiting, procrastinating, life in general getting in the way, I was finally able to finish this backpack mini!!! I have to say I learned a lot of "what NOT to do" while making this. Mainly, don't use the same craft space to paint/scrap in because you WILL get paint on your backpack mini. :(. I won't be repeating that mistake anytime soon. Also, I love this idea, and might make more. Maybe, not making ANY promises! (sorry pics are entirely out of order)

Little Treats/ TBBM/ Paper Pups/ A child's year

I made these little treat bags for my son & his little friends. They had a special popcorn party in his class and he brought these to share. I used TBBM for the popcorn boxes, the "smile" is from A Child's year, and "Yum" is from PPups. The scallop tag is from mini monograms and I added felt acorns and pumpkins as well as a little bling to finish them off. Paper is DCWV. TFL!
