Christmas Countdown

'Tis the Season!  Today I'm sharing a Christmas Countdown dry-erase board I made for my grands.  My project features Creative Fabrica's Christmas Countdown.  I am loving working with vinyl - just gotta get brave and start working with more colors and layering.

Tuesday Morning Sketches #430

Wow!  It's been weeks since I've had time to enter a challenge.  Challenge #430 at Tuesday Morning Sketches has a nice simple sketch, so here is my card.  I chose Distressed Burlap and Brick Fire Station for my card - both from We Are 3.  The border and matting is from the Spring Letters Collection - although you really can't see the pattern.  The original sketch is above.


For Those Cold Days

Fell in love with a free file from Love SVG - here is what I created.

It's Time to Be Good!

I just love the current fad of a Santa Cam watching our kiddies to make sure they are good...Very unique idea.  Check out my take on the Santa Cam.  I love the accompanying box I made for the Santa Cam ornaments - embellished with paper pine cones and pine needles.

Fall Into Happiness

I love Brick Firestation from We Are 3.  I'm in love with how it provided a background for this mystery-item card for a local swap - the mystery item is the huge watercolored leaf.  The Brick Firestation background is so simple and complex at the same time!

Scary You

Check out this simple layout using Little Star!  I love how the colors let me make a simple layout - with a bang.  The photo will be of my grandson in his skeleton Halloween pjs.  Hop over to We Are 3's Etsy shop to buy the Little Star Collection.

First Day of School - Just a Little Thing

Hello, Everyone!  I'm here today with a super sweet layout featuring Vintage Carnival and Little Things Sentiments - both from We Are 3.
I started my layout with two designs from Vintage Carnival - I used a plain white strip to separate the two to create the background.   I think Vintage Carnival is a fun collection for a boy's scrapbook - fun colors, but yet a masculine touch.

I created all my embellishments digitally.  I created the title myself.  The "I Heart" sayings came from I Heart Bookmarks (My Scrap Chick).  The sentiment is from Little Things Sentiments (We Are 3) on a Lacey Tag from Digi Playground.

Merry Christmas to You

Hello, Everyonoe!  I'm here again with another inspiration for a holiday-themed card.  I used Winter Scenes and paired it with Christmas Magic and In Stitches - both from We Are 3.  I must say I love how the stitched frame turned out.  Living in the desert now, this winter scene brings back memories - makes for such a pretty (and simple) Christmas card.
I love the sparkle We Are 3 added to the Christmas Magic "glitter" paper, so for a little "extra," I added some bling in the middle of the starburst - it looks so pretty.

By Your Side

I created this layout using papers from my stash. 

It's Holly Leaf Time!

We Are 3 has created another beautiful image with their Holly Leaf digital image collection.  I love how the holly leaves of different colors blend, so when layered make a dreamy Christmas tree!   Be sure to check out the Facebook Page for more samples of using the Holly Leaf collection to make special Christmas cool!  For the truck, I used Watercolor Batik.

Paper Ala Mode Challenge

Hello, Everyone!  I hope everyone is well today.  Today's challenge at The Outlawz is Paper Ala Mode - sponsored by Dr. Digi.  I was especially excited about this challenge - the image I was given is just so fun - Best Seat in the House.  I thought it was just perfect for the "Thanksgiving" theme.  For the papers and paper piecing, I used the digital paper collection Shabby from We Are 3.

I'm here today with these cute little puppies celebrating Christmas today.  I love We Are 3 images and papers - you can mix and match.  Here I combined the Cuddly Puppies from Winter Scenes, Holly Berries digital paper, and In Stitches - they all look good together.  My design is inspired by this week's challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches #428.

Mistletoe and Kisses

Here is a card using Stand Here digital stamp set from Power Poppy.  My card is inspired by Power Poppy's Hues to Use - these colors are really cool!  I love my deckle border.  When I first started scrapping, tearing edges and deckle edges were all the rage.  I finally found I can make a fun deckle edge using the font Border Bits. - I love my deckle edge!  This would make a great rooftop snow border!
