Snow flakes

Happy Friday everyone , Wow hard to believe it is the last Friday of 2011.....
The year went so fast I hope next year slows down a Well it is SOUS challenge again
this time it is ( Snow flakes ) I had a bunch of ideas lined up and then I got s-i-c-k so I went very simple! I used Cricut cart art of philosophy that I got from Carrie her Link is at the top of my page if you would like to ck it out.... for the snow flake , cut it out and used the negative to make the card I trimmed it down to size and added the dotted paper behind it.
Doodle stitched all around it. I used CTMH chip board tag and stamp I heat embossed the stamp..
Added some bakers twine and it is done...The colors are not so great the lighting was bad sorry....
Well wishing you a very Blessed and Happy New Year , See you in 2012!

This weeks die cut challenge is Baking and what fun it was!
For this one I choose to do a 2 page layout using Dina's awesome SVG files you can get them from Treasure Box Designs . This one is called Christmas Cookie and I also used Grandma's bake shop , I just love her SVG files they are so cute and easy to make! I inked them /used jelly roller pens to detail the eyes/stickles for some of the cookies/snow flake punch and ginger bread man punch/ ribbon/cuttle bug embossing folder snow flakes /

Country cookin recipe box

Good Friday morning all , My Daughter has been asking me for a recipe box for a while now and I come across this nice box @ Moms Memories brought it home and started on it right
It is another Kaisercraft they have so many nice things to make, I had to put it together and let me tell you this one was a lot easier than the advent calendar.
I first painted it black ( she likes country too haha) used graphic 45 papers inked the edges
covered everything inside and out with the papers....
Used lace / sm rosettes/buttons and bows.....
Cricut cart Country Life for all the cuts inked them and doodled of course....
used a corner punch and added that to the corners.
Had to add a cow to the front as she is a huge cow
I was just gonna at decorative paper on the inside of the lid then I thought it would be a useful to add the measurement conversion chart. This was a fun easy project and I am really happy with the way it turned out.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend

Believe Advent calendar

Good Friday to ya. Well it's another Die cut challenge @ SOUS and this week it is a Christmas Tree. I have really been in the mood to play with making things instead of scrapbooking , I bought this Advent Callendar @ my local craft store Moms Memmories and a few other goodies I got also gonna post a little later.
This is a Kaisercraft advent calendar that you have to put together, the olny bad thing about it is it comes with no instructions.... I found some online and it worked prefect! I really like how this came out.
I used Kaisercraft Advent calendar put it together painted it black and added paper.
Martha Stewart branch punch for the fronts of the drawers every other one..
The numbers I painted black they come with the kit.
Cricut cartridge Christmas Cheer for the ( Christmas tree ) I cut the bottom off and added lace ribbon for a tree skirt. I used Martha Stewart branch punch and added a bunch of branches on the tree along with some fiber ribbon, sm pom poms, some red buttons and a gold star for the top. I used paper and folded it and made a box behind the tree to make it 3D.
Cricut cartridge Christmas cheer for the fire place also added branch punch on the mantel and folded box behind it also.....
The title came from cricut cart Winter woodland and plantin school I mixed and matched ...
For the top I used gingham ribbon that I a bell some greenery and some sm bows .... I choose these colors because I love country and they are the traditional colors reds,greens. Well I hope I have given you some inspiration and I hope you stop by SOUS for lots more....thanks for stopping by
Have a great day
