Merry & Bright Christmas Page

Another 8X8 Scrapbook page for my Bestie's Friendship gift album. 

This this is my take based on the sketch over at Die Cuttin' Diva's for their Challenge this week.
I used my Cricut to cut the two rounded corner background layers.  the doily mat is from my WRMK Mini 8 Punch set called Doily.  the reindeer is from an old cardmaker kit in my stash, he is popped up on foam tape.  The back green polka-dot paper is just from my stash, the solid red is recollections card stock and all of the rest of the paper cuteness is from Pebbles - Welcome Christmas stack.  The 2003 I welded together and cut with my Cricut.  For the photo I used my WRMK corner rounder just on 2 corners to give it an interesting look.  The Ornament die-cuts are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die - Holiday Tags.  I popped the smaller white one up on foam tape and stamped it in red chalk ink with Merry & Bright from HOTP Christmas Collection Stamp Set.  The ribbon is saved from a gift to be re-used. 
Green & white bakers twine bow is from my Sew easy stash of twines. 

I added bling... red rhinestones to my ribbon and to two corners of my photo and a bigger one to the Reindeer Nose of course.  Then I sprinkled some cool shaped sequins in red and green all over, I just got this from an online Peachy cheap deal at a great buy.

Life's a Beach Luau Page

I have been working on an 8x8 Friendship album for my Bestie to give her for her upcoming Surprise party.  I have 6 more pages to go and only 2 more days to work on it so wish me luck my crafty friends, I am such a procrastinator!
 Such fun memories made at this Luau we threw in the Summer of 2000, I hope the one this weekend will be even better!!!   Ha ha ha I forgot I stole my Brothers until I looked at these pictures.  

I used some pretty purple corrugated paper to add some texture which I used my curved Fiskars ruler and a craft knife to create the curved border.  the rest of the papers I used are from a Neon stack by Craft Smith. The little Luau Girl tag is from an old Paper stack from my stash, I added some small purple gems to set her off.  She is also popped up on foam tape.   I also added some larger purple Gems to the Flower centers.  The 2000 I created in SCAL.

Rudolph Shaped Card

I am so enjoying making all of these Christmas in July cards, with my huge list it is always good to get a good jump on them early.  This adorable file is from Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  There are also two star ornaments to accompany the candy cane and stocking and they can all hang from his antlers but I wasn't wanting all that bulk of ribbons for mailing this one later on.  I created the mouth myself in SCAL because I suck at drawing on faces lol.  All of the papers are Scraps from my stash.  I chalked the cheeks and added some white gel pen accents.  oh and I popped up his nose with a foam square.  I was looking for a fun simple card to create today with my limited time on this busy day and this fit the bill perfectly!!!  Thanks Cheryl :) file can be found here: http://creativekuts.com/Rudulph-Card-201650.htm


The cute inside stamps are from a card maker kit I got years ago.

Snowman Shaped Card

Hello crafty people!  I received my awesome new stamp set from Cardz TV called Merry Everything that I recently won... Woooo Hoooo!!!  So I just had to use it in the new Challenge Mary is hosting over there.
I cased this idea from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uB-Uw3rqns  
I started by making a shaped card with my Cricut Snow Friends Cartridge.  I decided to do a shadow background for my card cut.  Then I layered my snowman on top in white.  I wish I would have done the shadow with the hat on, but oh well I still like it.  I used Authentique Cozy for my pattern and colored papers.  I love how it makes the vest and cap look like sweater material.  I used a peachy keen face stamp - Winter Faces Stamp Set.  I colored the nose in with spectrum noir #CR10.  The adorable sentiment stamp is from Cardz TV - Merry Everything!
I took this one outside on this scorching hot 106 degree Summer day!  def not snowman weather!  Ugh LOL
I added a second red fur edge to the cap and popped it up on foam tape.  I added the scarf with seam binding ribbon which I made crinkle by balling up and spraying with water and drying with my heat gun.  I also added some sparkly enamel dots for buttons and one on scarf and one more on hat pom.
For the inside a cut a blue card stock layer and cut just a bit off the top of the head so it would fit inside.  I simply stamped Merry Everything! from Cardz TV Merry Everything Stamp Set.  What a fun simple card that many would enjoy receiving for Christmas.  I could do several of these at one time for that super long Christmas card list.

I will be entering into these fun challenges:

Luau Bottle Centerpiece

Hello my Crafty Friends.  I have been super busy making these Centerpieces for an upcoming Luau for my Bestie's 50th Birthday.  Her daughter and I have been planning this for over a year now.  This is set 1 of 6 Centerpieces I am making.  They are all similar but each one is a little different. 
 The bottle is first painted a metallic blue.  I wrapped jute twine around the neck and secured with hot glue.  I made a 4" high wrap for the bottle from Purple Card stock, I then punched the edges to make a cute seashell border.  I added a layer of this blue burlap ribbon I picked up somewhere on sale.  I layered some spellbinders die cuts in pink and purple for the center.  The purple one I pinched the tip of each section to make it pop out and create a cool 3-D frame for a designer bottle cap.  In the center I created a pretty artwork with her Name on it with my computer and an added a clear epoxy over it.
The stick art at the top are all from Cricut Life's a Beach Cartridge.  The Dolphin Splash title is just one cut so I cut it twice and trimmed off the words on my blue layer before attaching together.  I added some pretty rhinestones to each cut to add some depth and bling of course.  At the very top of the bottle, I used my 1" circle punch to cut a top out of fun foam.  I then poked three hole where I wanted my sticks to go in.  I hot glued it to the up rim of the bottle.  After placing the sticks through and arranging how I wanted, I added a little glob of glue at the base of each stick to hold in place.
 I created the square Tiki face lantern from the Cricut Luau Cartridge, I trimmed off the hanger piece since they were going on the table. I lined the inside with Colored vellum panels and added some sequins to the faces where their were tiny holes, we will just place battery tea lights in these for each table.  everything is placed on a store bought 8" doily.  I added a starfish to enhance it all.


 here is a closeup of the bottle cap center, I love how folding the tips of the purple die cut created a dimensional frame for the cap.

Materials:
Pink die-cut - Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die - Ironwork Accents
Purple die-cut - Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die - Moroccan Motifs
Tiki Lantern - Cricut Luau Cartridge
Dolphin Title - Cricut Life's a Beach Cartridge
Flower die-cut - Cricut Life's a Beach Cartridge
Seashell Border on wrap -  Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Beach Shells
Designer Bottle cap - Bottle Cap Inc.
From my stash - Vellum, Rhinestones, sequins, doily, starfish, Bottle, Jute twine, Blue Burlap ribbon

3-D Fire Hydrant Party Decor

I had to make another 3-D item for the other end of the party table at my Grandson's 3rd Birthday Party.  It will go well with the 3-D fire truck I created in an earlier post with Marshall the Dalmatian on it.  This file came from SVG Attic and is called JGW Little Fire Chief kit.  What an awesome File!!!  I have to say it was a little difficult to put together but wow, love the result and I love how very sturdy it is!  You can find the whole fabulous kit here

I used Red Card Stock, Black Card Stock and some pattern paper from my stash for the accent pieces.
 This fun 3-D cut is also a box to add a gift or treats into.
 I followed along with a picture tutorial with a link from their site which you can find here:

3-D Fire Engine Party Decor

Hello crafty Friends.  I am sharing this awesome 3-D Firetruck I made using a file from one of  SVG Cuts Many awesome kits called Patriotic Parade.  I am making some fun Party decor for my Grandson's 3rd Birthday Party and He wants Paw Patrol theme.  His favorite character from the show is Marshall the Dalmatian Dog which is a fire Marshall so I thought this would be really cute on the table.

I chose not to make mine in the patriotic pattern papers but in red and white with diamond plate chrome.  I added a second section of the ladder to stick up and attached it with silver brads.  I left off the flags over the cab and popped up the light bar on foam squares.  I also popped up the chrome rims with foam squares.  Those are large gems for the light bar - Red, Blue & Amber I used large clear gems for the headlights.
I also added red Gems for the Brake Lights.  The back also lifts open on its hinges to reveal it is also a box for goodies.  I really enjoyed making this one, I truly love all of Mary's Files from SVG CUTS
I also had to add a cutout of Marshall on to this fun Party decoration.  I think this will be so cute on the Cake/Gift table.
