Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Hello ladies...I have been wanting to try some different ways of crafting. I used some wooden blocks that my husband had left over...and decorated them with DCWV Holiday Christmas collection cardstock.

I used mod podge, sanded the paper, inked with tim holtz walnut stain, ribbon (which you can see from the side). Embossed the banch ornaments with red and gold embossing powder.

Used twinkle glitter for the wreath, added a pearl cut wreath with Jolly Holidays @ 2 3/4"

Stocking cut @ 2 3/4" with chipboard about 3 times. This is suppose to be the J..but didn't want to use a I did the stocking as the J.

branch with ornaments (tucked behind the stocking) cut with same cartridge @ 2 3/4"

the "Y" cut @ 2 3/4" with Tear drop.

I painted the blocks with some outdoor green paint that I had left over.

Hope you enjoy...I might make some more of these as gifts....thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful chilly day.

Lilly's birdhouse with alittle cricut.

Hello ladies....Lillian and bob (daughter and husband) made a birdhouse together. She got to hammer in some of the nails and got to drill the bird hole. She loves making things and doing things as a family. She said she wanted stars, butterflies, hearts, and I used some vinyl (that I got on clearance for .50 a while back) so I did not mind using it.

I cut out stencils with my cricut and WIMG cartridges....She got to paint them then when it dried, I did another coat...We all had our hands in making this. Thanks for stopping by and Hope you enjoyed.

Carving pumpkins.

Hello ladies....I got another fall layout done..woohoo...I really love how this turned out. This layout is of my daughter Lillian (age 4 at the time = 2 years ago) and my husband. After we went to simmons farm (which was my last layout) we carved her pumpkins the next day. As you can see the pumpkin was as big as it.

I used my design studio to lay it all out.

Cindyloo for the orange background and frame (sorry did not write down the sizes again)

Birthday bash for the banner and letters which I cut out 4 times in different colors.

the black cat is a sticker from K&Company ( I added this because on her smaller pumpkin we did a cat)

Jewels, ms branch punch, white gel pen, and a strip for the pumpkin border on the bottom of the layout with the DCWV Fall glitter paper.

Added some hemp cord to the banner...and another layout done...hehe.

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!!!

Tree of life...disney layout / SOUS challenge.

Hello ladies... I made this layout of the tree of life (Epcot in disney) this tree all the animals on carved on it , beautiful. So I wanted to capture the pics the most, but I did manage to make this layout for a SOUS (stuck on U sketches) Challenge....if you haven't stopped by go take a look you can click on my title and it will take you straight there or here is there site....

The challenge was to use a tree (diecut) on your layout. Well I think I managed that. I love the simplicity of this one, so you can focuse more on the tree. I used the animal kingdom paper in the background because this tree has all the animals on it.

I used Tear drop cart for the title " TREE (all caps)" cut @ 1 1/2"

TD for "of" cut @ 1 1/4" and Life cut @ that.

Used cindy loo cart for the flower 4 background cut fit to page

Tree cut @ 3 3/4" with CL cart

I cut the tree about 4 times in different colors. then used gel pen to make the veins on the leaves.

I doodled with white gel pen.

Added sticker corners and some ribbon I won on a blog candy challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
