Cute Lil' Pumpkin

I love to participate in the DCWV sketch challenges each month.  They really help me experiment with different designs and I'm truly enjoying them.   Today's post is a layout I made for my niece's scrapbook and I used the DCWV February Stack-a-holic Challenge as my inspiration.

Here's my layout:

The sketch shows hexagons all over and I am shocked to say that I didn't have a single hexagon I could cut with my Cricut or my punches.  (I'm not very trendy, I guess.)

So I used pumpkins instead of the hexagons. 
I like how they turned out.

 Here's a little closer view:

I used the DCWV Autumn Melody Stack.

The "pumpkin" title is foam letters.
The banners were stamped using Studio112 stamps.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your visit. 

God bless.

From the bottom of my heart

I was the lucky winner of a stamp set from Paper Smooches from their latest blog hop.  I won the I Heart Art set.  I received it in the mail and made my first card with it.  


I used the Carta Bella Alphabet Junction collection for my papers.

It's really hard to see in the picture but I used glossy accents on the pencil and on the easel. It looks cool in person. : )   I also used foam dots to pop up the pencil.

I know I'll get a ton of use from this stamp set.  Especially since my little 4 yr old sweetpea is such an artist.
Thanks Paper Smooches for the prize!

Make sure to check out their website HERE. They have such fun stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by.

God Bless.

Happy Valentine's Day

Well, since tomorrow is Valentine's day, I thought I would share with you some of the things I made in the last few weeks for this occasion.   I'll start with the card I made for my husband.

Here's the inside:

 Here's the envelope:
I used the Carta Bella Devoted 6x6 paper pad to make this card.
The moon chipboard, glitter heart and glitter banner are from DCWV Immortal Love Chipboard collection.

Next I'll share a card I made for my Dad.
This also used the Carta Bella Devoted papers. 

Here's another card I made for a relative:

This one, believe it or not, actually uses the Carta Bella Merry & Bright (Christmas collection.)
That's supposed to be a Christmas tree with Christmas presents on it.  But I covered the presents with little hearts and I think it looks very much like a Valentine card. 

I thought I was going to be able to share the cards I made for my kids but I guess I forgot to take pictures of them.  I also forgot to take pictures of the treat boxes I made for my daughter's class.   Oops!  

Oh well.  I tend to be a little scatter brained. lol

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's day.

Thanks for visiting with me.

Big hugs.

"Its Your Day" DCWV card

Hi!  DCWV has posted their February 2013 card sketch challenge. You can check out the details of the challenge HERE.

This is my card.
(you can click on the picture to see it larger)

It's hard to tell in the picture but I made mine 3D by pop-dotting all the strips of paper. I don't know if you can tell in the picture below but I even "bent" the middle strip of paper in the center too.  It looks really cool in person. :)

The papers are from DCWV Sweet Stack.  

The stamped sentiment is from Fiskars. 

I'm off to work on making a layout for the February DCWV layout challenge. :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful craft-filled day.

God bless.


Ok......after posting this I kept staring at my card and thinking it needed something else.  Does anyone else do this, or is it just me???   Anyway, I added a few pearl gems and now I like it better.

Here's a pic with the gems

Here's a little better view to see the dimension too. 

Ok.... now I can move on to the next thing. LOL!  : )
