Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #22

I unexpectedly had some scrapping time today since my husband got invited golfing at the last minute! And Wednesdays mean there is a new Mid Week Mojo sketch! There were 2 options this week. I don't know if I'll have time to try the other one, but I really liked how this one looked. And after looking at a variety of papers, I decided that I needed to use the Black Currant again! Luckily, my MIL called to tell me she found another stack for me! Yeah! I used the Sweethearts cartridge and added a Basic Grey Sugar Rush stitched brad to the tag. Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #21

My husband went out this afternoon to do some Christmas shopping so I had 2 free hours to craft! I was able to do Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #21. This next set of 10 is going to be the Ruby Club! I have made it into the Diamond and Emerald club so far and hope to continue on into Ruby! I wasn't sure about this sketch at first. But I am quite pleased with the finished product! I used the DCWV Black Currant stack and I LOVE it! I searched for this stack for several months and finally got it on Black Friday! Now I want to get another so I don't run out!! It's so gorgeous! This is a picture of my brothers and I on my wedding day. Here is my recipe: Accent Essentials, Blackletter, George and Basic Shapes, Cindy Loo, Making Memories wedding jewels, Zva Creative pearl flourish, and Stampin' UP's Pink Passion ink. Thanks for stopping by!

Get Whale Soon!

Hi bloggie buddies! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season! I have been soooo busy! I can't believe I only have 3 posts for December so far. I miss my craft room! And it misses me because it is soooo messy! I can barely walk in there right now! I probably won't have time until the new year to get in there and clean everything up! Anyways, here is a quick card for the Get Well Soon Wacky Wednesday challenge. I used the Just Because cricut cartridge, silver stickles, and Stampin' UP papers. Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Wonderland!

I am so excited to see that I am up to 60 followers! Thank you all for following me! December is so crazy. It's nice when I have time to squeeze in some crafty time. I am so impressed with those bloggers out there who are still posting every day! This is a quick card I made today using the cricut cartridge Doodlecharms. I used a cuttlebug folder on my card base. I ripped a piece of white cardstock to make the snowbank and then added Crystal Stickles. I added Black Diamond Stickles to the snowman's eyes. And I didn't want to cut the snowman layer out twice, so I used Stampin' UP's Only Orange ink to color in the carrot nose! The sentiment is from the Bright Christmas set. The snowflakes are from Christmas Punch. I used Brilliant Blue ink and my Boho Blossoms punch. Then I added some I-rock gems. Thanks for stopping by!

Wacky Wednesday #17: Christmas theme + embossing
Flaunt it Fridays #1: Winter Frolic snowman (I don't have WF so I used Doodlecharms)
Paper Playtime #28: snowflakes

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Here is a quick card I made for my Stampin' UP class the other night. The challenge was to make a card using only neutral colors. I started with a Soft Suede base. Then added Chocolate Chip dsp. The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly and stamped with Close to Cocoa ink. The buttons are from Making Memories Paperie Mocha collection. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #70 and the inspiration photo from Off the Wall Craftiness #36.

And since it was my month for our hostess club, I brought some snacks. My husband made chocolate mint angel food cupcakes with buttercream frosting. And I made cupcake wrappers using my Easter cricut cartridge and Pink By Design's Rock On stamps. I think they turned out really cute. Thanks for stopping by!

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo #19

It's Mid Week Mojo #19 this week at Scrapbook Steals. One more to go and then it's Emerald Club!!! I loved the sketch this week. This week was designed by a Scrapbook Steals fan! She actually did 2 different sketches. So I am hoping to get to the other one if I have time! I used a couple of my favorite wedding pictures. The papers are from the Making Memories Paperie Rouge collection. I used my new Sew Easy to stitch on the black cardstock. I used the Burst stitch piercer. It was really easy once I got the hang of it! And I used my new Celebrate with Flourish cricut cartridge to cut out the title and the heart. Thanks Mom! I added some Cotton Candy stickles to the flourishes in the title. I really like how this LO came out and was pretty quick even with all the stitching! Thanks for stopping by!
