The Best is Yeti to Come!

Hello friends - 
today I had a little bit of time to play so I created a card 
that fell inline with a few separate Card Challenge blogs!!

I had a few of these Lawn Fawn Yetis coloured 
and on my desk from before Christmas.
That made the image quick & easy!
I had trees from Snow Bunnies set already coloured as well. 

 I used the Lawn Fawn Fawn Say Cheese Die to create
 a frame for the the scene I created.
I used Tim Holtz Peacock Feather to in the clouds.
I made a mask out of the Lawn Fawn cloud die.

 I love dimension as you all know, 
so I popped up the frame and the hill they are standing on.
I left the trees flat against the background.
An the yetis have foam behind them as well to keep them up.
I also used embossing powder to give the snow on the hill sparkle, 
and wink of stella on the heart.

I used My Minds Eye Love me 6x6 paper pad
for both of the strips of paper.

Products used today :

Please feel free to come & play along!

Christmas Cards throughout the year - Card One!

Hello Friends  - 
I am here today with my first Christmas card of the year.

Today I was home not feeling well so I decided to Create 
for a little bit.  After all it is relaxing!

 Before I began to create I went through my 
saved challenge site that I love to visit!
I designed the card to incorporate several blog challenges!
Thanks as always for the inspiration!

 I started with The Lawn Fawn stamp Set Snow Bunnies.
I got this a few months ago & coloured the images but didn't create much!
So that was the first go to - I also needed a scarf for a challenge!
 I used a little wink of Stella to give the Snowman a little sparkle.
I used a black glaze pen on their eyes asn noses.

 I like to use foam adhesive as you all know to create dimension 
and make my cards look not so flat!
It always adds so much to the cards.
I usually don't add white pen as I struggle with it - 
but decided to do it - 
I like it all except banner, the white doesn't look as good there.

This picture shows the layers a bit better - 
I still struggle with photos but I get a little better every year - 
so one day I will nail it!!

The challenge at Lawn Fawn right now is something old asn something new- 
here are two pads of paper I have of theirs - 
One I have had for a few years the other is Brand new!!
I had to cut the pad open to use it!!
I love their cute papers!!

I would like to enter in the following Challenges!

Dwell in Possibility - Virginia Nebel Inspired

Hello friends - 
yes I am back again today to share yet another layout.

This layout was inspired by something Virginia Nebel created.
I purchased the kit but because I create 8x8 layouts I 
can not follow along exactly as she has created them.

Here is the bright cheery double layout.
I love the big glittery words that she chose.

There is always a lot of details as well as layers.
I have several smaller photos for this layout but several are not my family - 
I will add the photos now that its posted!!

the papers in the kits were very busy but the way she pairs them 
are absolutely stunning.  I am not a huge fan of all the fussy 
cutting but these flowers are a perfect pairing.  

I love to layer all of the details with different thicknesses of adhesive foam.
It gives the layout a lot of dimension.
Unfortunately that doesn't always transfer well in photos.

 When I take a photo from above it looks flat asn you don't see the layers.

 When shrinking to a smaller canvas, 
there enviably is a lot of overlapping elements.
I love to have a busy area of overlap.

I am always amazed than when I put so much in a small space it looks good to me -
not extremely cluttered.
then again it doesn't always start that way - makes one layout every 2-3 hours explains it. 

 Thanks for stopping by the see what I have been up to - 
Come back again soon!

Papercraft Business Challenge New Year Challenge!

Hello Friends and Welcome back to a new year 
and new challenges at Papercraft Business Challenge!

This month to start the New Year
the theme is Any Thing Goes!!

I have creates a double page layout with
a photo of myself which I never do!!
Its a new year & everyone will be looking 
to make changes in themselves.
While like every one I could stand to loose a few pounds, 
I truly do like myself as a person!

I encourage you all to love yourselves & try
to create about you!!
It's out of the comfort zone but well worth the effort!! 

The paper size I prefer is 8x8.  I like these little pint size books.
They are more manageable so they are picked up ans looked at more often. 

In order to make things fit, I often need to cut things in half or trim them down!
I loved these big Sparkly words but they were all bigger than 8".
A little snip and they were good to go!
This was part of a card, but again with smaller paper it was not fitting so I 
trimmed the words out and arranged them in the corner to fit!
 I added some flowers I fussy cut from the same line of paper, 
& a few enamel dots cause I love them.  Everything is layered
 at different heights with various pop dots.

The photo is an Snapchat photo that I was playing with.
Again, I rarely do those either, but her is to a new year & change!!
I fussy cut more flowers & popped some of them up.

Thank you all for stopping in - 
Please come play along with us here

Every entry will give you a chance to win this stamp

We can't wait to see your creations!!

Baby Double Layout - To the Moon & Back

Hello friends - 
as promised I am back today to share another layout with you.

Today's layout is some leftover paper and ephemera from a 
Virginia Nebel project kit.
I love the pieces that Virginia pairs together!!

This layout is still needing photos,
however they are a friends child so I wanted to 
add them after I posted here.

So just picture pictures of a baby boy in the Polaroid frames.

The Polaroid frames came in one large sheet, 
only a few were needed to the orginal project.
I added navy paper to the reverse so the words would pop, and be visible

I cut clouds out of the background paper & mounted with pop dots.
One of the cards that I wanted to use wasn't going to fit on pone page,
 so I spread it out over both pages with an overlap effect.

The moon I covered with Wink of Stella to give it a really pretty shimmer.
Its hard to pick it up on the camera but you can see it on the top left of the moon.
I also matted the cards to give them some weight on the page. 
There are also a few matte rhinestones
 to replicate the shinning stars in the night sky.

I added several matte and shinny rhinestones to the top borders.
I love when the stars twinkle in the sky & it seamed to suite this layout.
I really need to find more of these matte ones - I adore them.

Here is a close up of the other two cards that I used.
These will be perfect with the baby pictures. 
He is a week old and so sweet!  New babies are so special.
I left these cards plain minus a few rhinestones
 to tie in the shimmer through out the layout.

Back with Layouts ....

Hello friends - 
I was away for a bit with a very slow laptop
that made loading pictures painful!!

Hubby gifted me a new one for Christmas & 
I am back at it !

Here is a layout I worked on a month ago - 
before the Christmas Crazy hit anyway!

 This layout was created with the newer I am paper by Simple Stories.
I love Simple Stories as you all know - 
all of the accessories tend to match and you can use most of them together.
Which is super handy while creating & easier on the pocket book!

The layout was inspired by a layout Nicole Nowosad made for SCT.
Her layouts was a one page 12x12 similar to the one below.
Because my layouts are 8x8 - I have to make several cats and changed when trying 
recreate anything the talented ladies create.

I wanted to have a second page so I played with all of the left overs I had 
and came up with this very busy & bright page!!

The flowers were created from a layout kit instructions Nicole made.
Mine are smaller just to fit - so fun & easy to make!!
They all look so different depending on the paper you choose!

The tin/enamel dots are the We Are Family line - 
but they still match so well!!

Thanks for stopping by the check in on what I am up to - 
I will be posted more now that I can so - come on back !!
