Now, I haven't had much time to create with all the Christmas hoopla until now. I couldn't wait to sit down and do something. When I saw this weeks sketch at the Sweet Stop (SSS#36) I just new it was the jumping off point I needed. I found this cute image at Squigglefly and colored it with copics. I used some scraps from my stash to create the layers and my Slice to create the circle (you know I had to use it). Here's how it turned out! The picture is a tad blurry but you can get the idea!

This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle we have a sketch challenge for you.
I really enjoyed creating with this sketch! I began with the poinsettia image from Beccy Muir. I colored the image with copic markers and cut the circle using my Creative Memories Custom Cutting System. I used Making Memories Tinsle paper for the layers and cut another red circle. I used three brads from American Crafts. Finally I stamped the sentiment with a Studio G stamp (Thanks Diane!). I am really happy with how this card turned out.
This will be our last challenge for the year at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle BUT we will be back on January 2nd to start 2010 out with a great challenge. So, you have two weeks to create something using this sketch and get it linked up for a chance to win a paper pack from the PaperTemptress!
Until then, I wish you all

This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle the challenge is to create anything that isn't square...or rectangle. Shaped cards, mini books, whatever! I decided to create a Christmas tree shaped card. I found a cute clip-art image in MS Word and printed it out. I used it as a guide for the shape of my card. I covered the cardstock with green patterned paper (Creative Memories) and embellished with fiber and buttons. I added Glossy Accents to the star to give it some dimension. I think it turned out really cute. Now I gotta find an envelope that it will fit in!
We'd love to see what you can create! Come on over to Stamp, Scrap & Doodle and link up your creation by Friday night and get in on the chance for free Victoria Case images! Until then, enjoy the season!

This weeks challenge is a color challenge. Here's the inspiration:
I definitely needed to create a Christmas card (yes, I am still working on Christmas cards to send out to family and friends!) so I was intrigued by using these fun colors on a Christmas card. I found some great ribbon at the dollor spot at Target (gotta love it) and was so excited to see these colors on it with snowflakes. So I pulled out one of my Fresh Brewed Designs images and used my copics to color them with the same colors; pink, purple, and green. I added blue to tie it all together. I created my own patterned paper with a snowflake stamp (thanks Diane) and glitter embossing powder. I added paper piercing to each of the layers for a little added touch. Here's the result!
I hope you find some time to scrap during this crazy busy holiday season. If you do, come and play with us at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle!
Fresh Brewed Designs Image: Snowbuddies
Coloring: Copic Markers
Stamped background and sentiment: Studio G
Embossing Powder: Holographic by Ranger

Anyway, now that the leftovers are in the fridge let's get geared up for Christmas. I tried really hard this year to not get to Christmas-y before Thanksgiving. BUT, Thanksgiving is officially over and it is finally the Christmas season. This week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle the challenge is anything Christmas! A card, an altered item, a layout.....ANYTHING Christmas! Here's what I created.
The sweet little penguin image was a freebie that I got from PollyCraft. I just couldn't wait to get him on a card. He's colored with copic markers (man I just love these markers). The paper and sticker is from Creative Memories. I used a sketch from CPS to get me going. Let me know if you like him or not!!! AND, get creating and link up for a chance to win free files from The Cutting Cafe (Regina has some great Holiday files!!!).

First up are two cards that I created for Thanksgiving.
Both cards were created using the same fall page kit from Paper Studios. I colored the Cheeky Radish images, Tom Turkey and Give Thanks, with copic markers.
Next up is a shaker box card I created with the Cheeky Radish Snow Globe image. Thanks to JenC for the tutorial on the Paper Popsicles Message Boards. I had a blast trying this and think it turned out ok for my first try.
A few weeks ago, Melissa offered up this little house card file as a Friday Freebie. I couldn't wait to use this Through the Window image with it. The paper is MME and I colored the image with copics. I added Stickles to give the snow some bling.
And finally, my favorite project of them all....a layout featuring the Cookie Platter image. I've been waiting to get these photos onto a layout and into an album. This image was just the push I needed to get it done. The paper used on this LO is from Creative Memories. The Cookie Platter image was colored using copics, cut out and pop-dotted on the page. I love how this page turned out! Please click on the image to see it larger!
I am so very thankful to Melissa for this opportunity to showcase the amazing Cheeky Radish images! Please check out the store....I know there are some great deals going on!

This week's challenge at Stamp, Scrap, & Doodle is anything Halloween. The Design Team did an awesome job with this challenge...lots of variety.
This week I didn't create a card, but rather a decoration! I recieved the latest Oriental Trading (yep, you know the one) with all the newest Halloween and Fall craft projects. I found the cutest project of a Door Hanger Craft Kit. Well, I just knew it would be easy to create this cutie with my stash of scrappy goodies. I used a pumpkin template that I got from Paper Popsicles and I covered 4 of them with paper from Pebbles, Inc. (thanks to Cheryl at Stamp-By-Step). I hand drew the leaves and gave them a little texture with my cuttlebug. I used chipboard letters covered with the same Pebbles, Inc. collection backed with purple cardstock. I added a jack-o-lantern, a bat, some ribbon and wha-la! I am so pleased with how it turned out. It is now hanging on the wall in my family room....a cute addition to my Halloween decorations!
Saturday, September 26, 2009
Here's what I came up with. I used some scraps I had in my stash (love using up those scraps) from the Paper Studio. These colors just make me so happy. The layered flower was created using my cuttlebug and a little button.
So come on over and show us what you got! There are some cute little buns up for grabs as the prize this week. They are just adorable! You have until Friday, Oct. 2nd at 10pm to link up to your creation to be in for the prize. Hope you'll join us!

For this card, I wanted to go a little more masculine. I used my September kit from Paper Popsicles (Talkin Smack) to put this baby together. The only thing not in the kit was my orange ribbon! Thanks for looking!

Better late than never I always say. This LO is based on LAST week's sketch at Let's Scrap. I worked on this booger for a week!!! It was the ribbon pleating around the circle that gave me so much fits.....BUT I've got it down now!! Then, on top of that, I couldn't get a good pic....rainy and overcast here the last couple of day. Anyway, the paper is Karen Foster Designs and stickers are from M&MBI. Thanks for looking!

I got Trinity to help me out this week. Just like her Mommy, she wants to be a teacher when she grows up!!! She thinks it would be so cool to have her own classroom and be able "to tell all the kids what to do"!!! We found this image on google images and thought it was just perfect. She did her magic with color pencils (see the make-up!!!). Please let her know if you like her creation! And don't forget to get your little people to create with you this week!

I created this LO to fulfill the requirements of not one, not two, but three LO challenges! I know, I know, I'm good! LOL! First, the sketch is #34 from 52 Sketches. Second, the LO is about my scrappy place and I stamped on the paper covered chipboard scalloped circle for this weeks challenge at Stamp and Scrap. Third, I used only chipboard (and just a touch of bling) for the How Creative Can You Be challenge at Paper Popsicles. Whew! I really like the way it turned out even if my sewing machine did give me fits!!!! Thanks for looking!
