Santa is coming....

Hi Everyone

Today I have a card using Kris, the newest guy stamp from C Thru The Woods.  This is a fairly simple card using a couple of dies from Memory Box (the window and stairs)  I added the cheeky face to Kris using a stamp from Peachy Keen - how cute does Santa look peeking through the window?


I certainly remember saying this to my own girls when they were younger.


Thanks for stopping by today to check out my project.


See you next time.

'Credit Cards Have A Limit?' Card - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place - thanks Terri for having me.  No month as guest designer for Terri would be complete if I didn't make at least one project using a Prima Doll stamp (you know how I love them!)


Don't you just love the colours on these Bo -Bunny papers?  I couldn't resist giving her a cheeky face using some Peachy Keen stamps and a sentiment that I created using my Silhouette Cameo.



I actually made this into an easel card, so that it could stand up and you could see the sentiment inside.





Thanks for stopping by today.  See you next time.

The Ugly Christmas Sweater

Hi Everyone

Today I have a new project with Michael one of the guys stamps from C Thru The Woods.  As Christmas rolls around, so too does the time to break out the 'ugly Christmas sweater', well I just had to dress up one of the guys for this (sorry Michael!)


I decorated up this wine bag to take to a party we will be attending soon - maybe the winner of this competition won't enjoy winning the title, but I hope they will enjoy the prize!

Here are a couple of close-ups.




Thanks for stopping by today.  See you next time.

Tree Tags - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

It's Tuesday, so time for me to be guest designer over at A Scrap N Place - thank you Terri.  Following on from my card last week made using the Sparkling Tree Tile die from Memory Box, I wanted to share the two tree tags I made.


These are so simple, and can be made with a few scraps that you can co-ordinate with any colour of gift wrap.



You could even turn these into ornaments for the tree.  Terri has a great selection of glittery papers, vellums and a variety of 'bling' that would be perfect for these.

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you next time.

So Many Men...(and a little something extra!) - C Thru The Woods

Hi Everyone

Today I have another card for you using Cowboy Dan from C Thru The Woods.  I have a few cowboy/cowgirl sentiment stamps in my collection, and I thought this would be great to use with this stamp.


It is fun to sometimes just use part of these stamps - just to change things up a bit.  The background kraft card stock I ran through a 'wood texture' embossing folder, I stamped the legs several times (masking as I went) and then coloured them with ProMarkers.  Here is a look at the inside.



So what about the little something extra?  A couple of weeks ago I used Drake to make this Phantom Tag, and said that I had other plans for him.  Well here he is, sporting a very different look.


Can't you just imagine him in his show in Vegas in this get up?


I hope you have enjoyed both of my projects today.  Until next time.

Simple Blue and White Card - A Scrap N Place

Hi Everyone

Today I am guest designer over at A Scrap N Place, as always thank you Terri for having me.  Today I have a very simple blue and white card made using the 'Sparkling Tree Tile' die from Memory Box.  I wasn't quite sure about using this die initially, but then an idea struck me and I just had to go with it.


Just simply by adding some glitter cardstock and pearls to the blue and white colour scheme really made this card 'pop'.  Here is a closer look.


The sentiment is embossed in fine detail silver embossing powder.



I also wanted to give another little plug for a fun competition Terri is currently holding in the store with these cute little snowmen tree ornaments.


If you buy one of these kits ($3.99) - bling it up make it your own and take it back into the store to enter the contest.  There is a $25.00 gift certificate up for grabs and a chance to win this cute layout.


Thanks for stopping by today and checking out my project.  See you soon.

Timmy Doesn't Do Mornings - C Thru The Woods

Hi Everyone

Just a quick card this morning to share with you, and what I have done with Timmy one of the latest stamps from C Thru The Woods.


I thought he would look cute in his PJ's with a coffee cup in hand.  The clock is a file from the Silhouette online store, and the sentiment is computer generated.



Here is a look at the inside, which has a pocket, the perfect place for a Starbucks card to 'hide'.


Thanks for stopping by today - see you next time.
