White-on-White Challenge

Hello, Everyone!  I'm showcasing a card I made for the Monday Greetings Challenge at The Outlawz last week . . .  featuring White on White.
I used a Houndstooth embossing folder to create the background layers, and a sentiment from my stash used in Christmas pasts.

Day of Joy

Hello!  I'm here today with a wedding layout.
I started my layout by adding a small title on my background - I used Big Ornament digital paper from Nothing But Freebies.  I added scrap elements from We Are 3 - Burlap Beach and Butterfly Sky.

Three Sweet Blossoms

Hello, Everyone!  I'm here with a flowery card featuring Blue Blossom Oval Sheet.
I started my card with a white base and matted the blue flourish digital paper included with the kit.  I added the Get Well sentiment to the oval - the current theme at Paper Ala Mode Challenge at The Outlawz is Get Well.  I used Print 2 Cut to make  flowers, arranging them on the scalloped oval matted with a doily svg.  I adhered them to the top of layered embossed die-cut backgrounds with foam tape to add dimension.

Vintage Carnival Digital Papers

For this layout, I used Vintage Carnival digital papers from We Are 3.  I love how colorful these papers are.
For embellishments, I used circles and Independence Borders from Miss Kate Cuttables.  This layout will make anyone's day brighter!  Last, but not least, I added a title cut from Vintage Carnival papers.

We Are 3 Little Star

Hello, Everyone!  Are you following We Are 3 for inspiration and eye candy?  Here's just one of my many projects using digital papers from We Are 3 - Little Star.
I matted the big birthday pic with Lattice 8 from Monica's Creative Room.  I used Print 2 Cut for the title and sun and cloud - my favorite scrapping tool.  I adore the Happy Sun and Cloud from Miss Kate Cuttables so much!  I must say - I'm pretty happy with this layout!

Magic, Love, and Butterflies

Hello, Everyone!  Today I'm sharing another card designed for We Are 3.  It's been amazing to design for We Are 3 . . . new papers to try just about every day.  Look how adorable this new release is!
I created the background using two different patterns from Magical Butterflies - the colors are so gorgeous.  I took two other patterns to layer on top - with a sentiment from Heartfelt Sentiments taking center stage.  I just can't get enough of those flower patterns - they are mesmerizing, don't you think?

Halloween Eyes on You

Hello, Everyone!  Here today with a card using Halloween digital papers from We Are 3.  Don't you think this set is just the sweetest?  Absolutely perfect for Halloween lovers.
I used an image from Nikki Burnette and colored her using Adobe Phooshop. I glue the image down to the base - then popped up the photo page for some dimension.  I add some glitter to the photo frame and pumpkin.  The glitter doesn't do much for my card in the photo - but in person, I love it!

Trick or Treat!

I'm here today with a Halloween treat bag feature a retired Jack-O-Lantern cutting file.  This treat bag is perfect for your special Halloween beggars.

The colors in my photo are a bit off - I always find it interesting as to how our cameras mess with our colors. The bag almost looks blue, when it's really a deep purple. The pumpkin's orange is actually very close to the orange candies on the patterned paper!

A Vintage Carnival Layout for We Are 3

Hello, Everyone!  I'm here today to share some scrapbooking inspiration with you.  I made my layout with Vintage Carnival digital papers...perfectly cute!  For embellishments, I used Musical Notes from Thank You for the Music from SVG Cuts.  Last but not least, I added some fun embellishments from my stash.  The photos will be of my grandson dancing - the QR Code on the right will play a video of him dancing.

Rocket Ship

Hello, Everyone!  I'm here today sharing a treat box made with the free Octagonal Heart Box file from SVG Cuts.  But I wanted to make this for boys, so I switched out the heart for the adorable Rocket Ship from We Are 3.  Isn't is the cutest?


I picked some of matching patterned papers from the Outer Space Collection for the box.  I personally think these blue, purple, and yellow color combinations are great for this Outer Space theme.

Halloween Wishes from We Are 3

Hello, Everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card full of Halloween.  I believe you all know how taken I am with We Are 3 digital papers, and the brand new Halloween Collection is not an exception.  This collection is wonderful - ultimate cuteness!
This collection contains a photo page which can take all the design work out of the equation - a real time saver!  This photo page is adorable after you just add your own photo.  Since I wanted to make a card, I inserted a haunted house for my photo.  I used the coordinating "glitter" paper for a background to set the scene for my haunted house in the starry, starry night.  I added a "glitter" mat.  You may not be able to tell from the photo - but this card is one layer - I combined all the components together and printed - saves on cardstock!

"Driving" By to Say Happy Birthday

Today I am celebrating neighbor birthdays with fun and colorful golf bags using papers from We Are 3 and a cutting file from SVG Cuts.  


I made two golf bags featuring Brick Fire Station from We Are 3 - with a golf bag from Fun and Games.  I filled the bags with monogrammed golf balls.

Happy Dirt-Day

Hello, Everyone!  I'm here today with a card featuring Marriages from Bugaboo.
Lots of cute possibilities with this old guy.  This time he's hearing voices - look at that face as he thinks he hears God speaking to him!  For this card, I used rock and dirt patterned papers.  I must say they were a find with perfect patterns for this birthday card!

For the inside, I printed the big question - just how old are you?!?!?

A Day of Celebration

Hello, Everyone!  Here today with a birthday gift featuring a Golf Bag.  This adorable file is from SVG Cuts.
I wanted to use some fun colors like you see in Google searches and Pinterest, but I also wanted it to look similar to our friend's golf bag.  When I saw he had a plain black bag - had to put my thinking cap on.  I think I made a smart choice.  I edited a plaid-patterned digital paper using Gimp.  I changed all the greens in the paper to shades of gray and black.  I then filtered the paper with Distort > Mosaic.  After I finished with editing, I got just what I wanted - a sort of textured black tweed fabric pattern.  I also filtered a gray pattern to get a textured leather feel.  First time around - definitely made some mistakes - but this took very little time to make.  I added the numbers 8 and 4 and our friend is turning 84 years old.

Congratulations to You!

Hi, Everyone!  Here today with a 3D trophy perfect for the winners in your life, staring Father's Day Loving Cup, which literally deserves its own awards! It's so beautiful no matter whatever papers you'd choose.  As for my Loving Cup, I wanted it to be a bright color.  It turned out so pretty, and I love, love, love it.

Today's Show and Tell

Here's a little Tucson Subway Art.  I'm still learning - feeling like it's one step forward, two back.  What I learned on this project....buy the cheap acrylic paint - it only takes one quick coat.  Next, the color on the paint sample on the bottle is not the color inside.  I spent lots of time with a piece of vinyl matching colors - nothing like it when I got it on the canvas.  Oh, so much more to learn!  LOL!  But am proud I did not give up!  I will abandon this in Tucson someplace - actually preposting, so probably has already been abandoned by the time you read this.

Pretty Exotic Seaside Donuts

We Are 3 has amazing digital papers - I chose yummy Exotic Seaside for this birthday card.
My card for today is highlighting Dandy Dunker Donuts (My Scrap Chick) for my son-in-law's birthday - a Simpsons fan.  To complete my card, I used a happy birthday sentiment for a background. I especially love using digital papers and images as matching colors is so easy.  To add some dimension to my card, I created a second birthday sentiment - and some twine.

Pipe Cleaner Christmas


Hello, Everyone!  Here today with a card highlighting a Mystery Item for a local swap - a pipecleaner.  My Christmas tree pretty much came out just as I envisioned.


I paired my Christmas tree with digital paper called Holly Berries.

September SALSA Swap

After admiring all kinds of tags made using mixed media, I decided to see if I could replicate the feel using digital papers.  I chose Miss Daisy, a We Are 3 Collection.  Using GIMP, I created three tags with three coordinated sheets of paper.  I then used the eraser to randomly erase sections of the top two layers.  I got exactly what I wanted.  It may look like a single paper pattern to you (which was my goal) - but if you look carefully, it moves from a striped pattern at the top to a dotted pattern in the middle to a floral pattern at the bottom.
This is a 5-1/4" X 3" tag.  I designed it for the SALSA tag swap - theme is Inspire Me.

Waiting for the Music to Play

This weekend is our local SALSA group - we have three swaps each month.  I fell in love with this new paper collection from We Are 3 - Woodland Delight.  I used a Music Flourish for the SALSA theme Tra La La La La.  I used word art from Drehi.  Here's my completed card.
