DCWV Winter in the Woods Layout

Here is a layout for the DCWV Diary 1st Stack-a-holic for the new year! Wow! Love these gorgeous papers for the DCWV in their Winter in the Woods stack! The gorgeous silver glitter papers, icy blues, and grays paired with kraft is a blast to use, too. Here's the sketch:

A 2nd page was necessary because there were so many terrific pics I couldn't fit on just one! There are also 2 hidden areas to add even more of them.
If you haven't noticed, I use challenges to make me more creative to achieve my goal of making more layouts, and cards. The love of crafting and giving my family and friends scrapbooks made with love is what keeps me trying new things every week. I hope to keep this going throughout the year and plan on being inspired by all of you out there in this wonderful world of scrapbooking. I can't wait to see what challenges me next! Hoping you are enjoying this as much as I am!! Happy end to our first month of 2015!!

Authentique Crush Layout using Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die

I loved this paper from Authetique called Crush! Don't you just love the blue and pink colors together?! I used Spellbinders' dies to make hearts and this GORGEOUS frame from the new Mystical Embrace set using the 5x7 one to frame my family picture.                                                    
I am entering this layout for the following challenges:
PaperCrafter'sCorner Weel #84-For it's vintage feel, floating hearts, and trying something new, which I did by using the new Spellbinders' die and Authentique Crush papers which were their new 2015 collection.

Webster's Pages Christmas Layout

One of the funny things I like to do since I am always so far behind in getting caught up with all my photos, is scrapbook the last year's activity before we have it again. Well, that's what I've done here. I actually have made 4 double page layouts and this is the one I'm showing you because all the pics are the same, and the layouts are all this gorgeous Christmas collection from Webster's Pages. The ribbons are also, from it as well, and I just fussy cut a ton out! Added stickles and Crystal glaze in places. Hope you enjoy it!

Cricut Explore Merry Christmas card

I am so lucky that my husband has given me an early Christmas present of a Cricut Explore!!! And after a busy week of cooking, and company at Thanksgiving, I had the chance to peruse their catalog of images in Cricut Design Space, and found that I really liked this Art Deco image of merriment. The papers are Recollections gold, green and red cardstocks and Core'dinations card base red dots embossed/raised. Don't you love the vintage feel of the card? The sentiment was stamped with a VersaMark ink pad then I used red embossing powder.
Here are the challenges that gave me inspiration:

Paper Smooches Wobble card

Here a card I made for fun using the Paper Smooches Puppy from the Chubby Chums set. I just love this little puppy and found that it was easier to practice with my copics if I just stamped a few and colored all them at one time, so that's what I did. It was so relaxing and educational to try different things.  The card is from a few sheets of Simple Stories and I love how it came out with this funny guy! Enjoy!
