December Project of the Month

Hello Everyone,

I designed this little cutie for the project of the month for December. I used Kaisercraft wooden plaques and it will make a great holiday decoration for Christmas. It's misted with Iridiscent gold glimmer mist to add more sparkle. I will be adding several more classes that I am finishing up designing in a few days.

Christmas Time weekly Challenge Layout

This is my layout for my Toyota Club challenge this week. Our challenge was to use the jewels on a project. I had to pop the jewels off the bases to make them work on the flowers and santa hat. I love the Christmas solutions cartridge, it has some beautiful vintage style cuts on it.
Christmas, Poinsettias, & Snowflakes - Christmas Solutions, Accent square - Home Accents, Time - Calligraphy Collection and Scallop background square - Storybook.
The branches are a Martha Stewart punch and the smallest snowflakes are a Quickutz die.

November Scrapbook Inspirations Class & Challenge Layouts

I designed this 2 page layout for this months Inspirations Class. I love this Kaiser Craft paper and the leaves from the new Blackletter Cricut cartridge. The flowers are also Kaiser Craft. I used several cartridges on these layouts: Our-Cursive 101, Family- Home Accents, Traditions- Base Camp, Leaves-Blackletter, Scallop circle-George & border- Plantin Schoolbook. A great layout to add those special Thanksgiving memories to, past or present.
As always if you would like a kit, just call Melissa at the store and she will ship one to you.

These are a couple of layouts that I did for a couple of my Toyota Chipper Clipper Club challenges.
Special: The challenge was to use a piece of patterned paper.
Special-Stone Script and Scallop-Plantin Schoolbook. This was a really simple layout, it just took some time to cut out all the flowers and swirls. I found the inspiration for this layout on the Bo Bunny Blog.
Christmas Wishes: This also used the Tim Holtz Acrylic tiles that was one of our weekly challenges.
This one is actually recreated to highlight this beautiful Bo Bunny paper at the store.
Christmas-Wild Card, Wishes-Street Sign, Snowflake- Joys of the Season, Accent Square-Storybook and flourishes are Home Accents. Again I used Tim Holtz acrylic tiles. These are awesome and I love how easy they are to use. I love the font that is on the Wild Card Cartridge. It's very whimsical and I am sure I will be using it the most out of all my font cartridges.
In our club we have been doing an Amazing Race, weekly challenges and they have been so much fun and I appreciate our leader Sherry for all of her hard work.
