I am totally hoarding everything that I didnt use for this reveal. They are much better in person too. the photos just dont do them justice. There is glitter on just about all of them, but it is nice and subtle. beautiful!

thanksgiving card

I created this card using the image from the Magic in the air blog and following the challenge to do a monochromatic card. I went with orangey brown. This card is also for the Pink Elephant challenge to do something about being thankful, and for the use your stash card to use the word thanks and some ribbon. Dont know if thanksgiving counts as using the word thanks, but I dont use a lot of thank you cards. The sketch is from the Bo Bunny blog. Papers are bo bunny. oops, bo bunny challenge is to use the sketch to make a christmas card. oh well, no chance to win, but I still think it is one of my best cards!

A giveaway RAK because I am so thankful!

I have been so lucky to win lots of prizes lately and to have a huge collection of scrap supplies, so I have decided to do a giveaway. I am not sure if I will have one or two, but trust me there will be some good stuff in there. One thing that for sure will be in there, is one sheet of each paper from the new Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend and Earth Love lines. I was lucky enough to win these collections packs a month or so ago, and I decided that I didn't need TWO sheets of every paper, so I put one sheet of each design aside to give away. Other than that, there will be random new and gently used rub-ons, stickers, chipboard, you get the idea. I'll be picking a winner (or maybe two depending on how much stuff I can get together) on Thanksgiving. Due to shipping costs, I can only send a big package to US residents but if you are international and I pick you as a winner, I will make up a special smaller envelope. (It'll still be awesome!)

So, post a comment to this post for one chance, and if you are a follower of my blog, you will get another chance.

another christmas card

sketch from pricsilla styles blog, papers are pink paislee, stamp unknown, stickles, kaiser pearls and american crafts ribbon. I also used this page from the paper crafts magazine to inspire me to do the square mosaic part. The magazine inspiration was for the method playground blog. it was fun because I rarely pull out my magazines.

gingerbread houses

sketch from twisted sketches blog, pink paislee paper, joann glitter, grungeboard, making memories tiny alphas, thickers, prima flowers, unknown rubons, tattered angels chipboard

I had to take the picture inside at night so it isnt the greatest, so I took one at an angle so you can see the title

this is also for the scrap inspire create blog challenge to use multiple photos and for the spunky scrappers blog challenge to scrap our kids.

mojo monday card

here is the card that I made using the mojo monday blog sketch. I used pink paislee papers, kaisercraft pearls, bazzill cardstock, and a melissa frances stamp. the other stamp is unknown as is the lace.

ACOT Sizzix reveal

Today is my November reveal at ACOT. I was sooooo excited to get this new Sizzix Texture Boutique embossing machine to work with this month. I have been wanting an embossing machine for a while and thought about getting the cuttlebug but never bit the bullet and got it. Little did I know that I was just waiting for THIS! I love it! it's cute, small, portable, affordable and has some really great folders to go with it!

So here is a sneak peek at my reveal:

Check out the rest in my article at A Cherry On top.

sketchy thursdays entry

this one is from the sketch thursdays sketch. I used the cosmo cricket papers that I won from them last month. (love these!) and just a little hint here, but Im going to be doing a giveaway in a couple of weeks. I took one sheet of each pattern from these two packs and will be sharing the fun (along with some other goodies from my stash) so you might want to become a follower to make sure you dont miss it. (It'll be after Halloween since things are crazy around here until then due to Ellies birthday)

ACOT CT Appreciation Crop and Challenge

the community at ACOT is having a crop for all of us CT members, so we can play since we dont usually get to play at crops because we are hosting them. I had a blast! Its still going on today but I wont get to scrap anymore. :( oh well, it was still fun and I got a bunch of challenges done both for the crop and for some other blogs that Ive been following but not participating in because I havent had much time to scrap lately.

So here is the first page that I made. I used the sketch from the scrapsketch blog. from last week. and the creative pandemonium challenge to use 2 colors of cardstock, 2 tags and one photo. (hope it was 2 or more tags because that's what I assumed)
The papers are from the front page of the cosmo cricket collection pack.

what else is new? well Im getting a new car. Picking it up tomorrow. and I am really excited and happy but also sad. I am overly emotionally attached to my old car, so this morning driving it to work for the last time I started getting sad and wanted to post a memorial to it. So here is the page I made a few months ago about my love for my car.

scrapjacked entry

I was totally inspired by the jack this round on Scrapjacked. Here is my take:


I used glimmer mist, sassafras lass papers and brads, coredinations cardstock, bazzill cardstock and a lily bee rubon.

think I have a chance?

I post to these contests almost every month and I never win. I never even come close (of course the not close thing is just in my own estimation) but anyway, Im pretty proud of what I did this month. The challenge was to make a mini album or project about you. I used the Graphic 45 stuff that I got from ACOT for my DT assignment and had leftover.
