KaDoodle Bug Design Day

Hello, today I am sharing a project over on the KaDoodle Bug Designs blog.  I used the Cutie KaToodles Mr. Pumpkin cutting file which was a freebie last week over at KaDoodle Bug Designs. He was such a fun and unique looking pumpkin I just had to cut him out as soon as I saw him.
I adhered a small hand cut tag with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Bewitched stamp set.  The tag was embellished with a coordinating Trendy Page Dot and some Lime Licorice Trendy Twine.  A few coordinating enamel dots were the finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great day!

Gone Fishin' Layout

Hello, today I have another project to share for the Scrappy Moms Stamps August release.  The 2 new stamp sets for this month are:  Paint the Town and The Great Outdoors.  For my project, I created a fishing themed double page layout.  I mainly used the Charmkin Cuties - Gone Fishing Boy and the Gone Fishing cutting files from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The remaining cuts were from the Design Space subscription for my Cricut Explore.
I used some fun textured Recollections card stock for my layout, I just love the look of the textured paper.  The Boundary Waters Fiskars punch created the water border along the bottom edge of the pages.  A tiny bow in Totally Kraft Trendy Twine was adhered to the fishing hook at the top of the page.
I stamped 2 sentiments from The Great Outdoors stamp set.  One of the sentiments was added to a fishing hook and the other was stamped on the sign.  I can't wait to print my pictures for this layout.
Here's a closer look at the new stamp set, available here:

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Summer Fun

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  Our theme for this challenge is "Summer Fun".  For my project, I created a double page layout.  My son was a lifeguard at the local pool during the summer so this challenge give me the perfect opportunity to memorialize his first job.  I used the Life is a Beach cartridge for all of the die cuts on my layout with the exception of the lifeguard.  He was cut from the Fun in the Sun cartridge and his face was stamped with the Simple Simons Face Assortment Peachy Keen Stamps.
I was going for a cool looking lifeguard but this guy looks kind of nerdy.  My husband and son got a big kick out of his outfit and glasses.
I embellished my layout with some coordinating Cranberry Trendy Twine.  A few pieces of bling accented the umbrella tops and the flip flops.  I added several sentiments from the Scrappy Moms "Sun Kissed" stamp set.  They were all so perfect for my layout, I ended up using 4 different sentiments.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a starry night layout featuring Aqua Midnight and Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine.  I found the starry night paper in my stash which I have been hoarding for a long time.  The starry night theme reminds me of the perfect summer night hanging out with my family.  I have some fun pictures from a recent trip which will be perfect for this layout page.
Most of the die cuts on my layout page are from the Outdoor Man Cricut cartridge.  Since the background of my layout was so dark, the two different twine colors were the perfect accent to brighten up my layout.  I used the twine to embellish several of the die cuts and the photo mat.  A few sequins were scattered on the page for some more sparkle and shine.
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick up this gorgeous twine.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a fun and festive project featuring Aqua Midnight and Aqua Licorice Trendy Twine.  I created a birthday card with a treat package using a clear chocolate box from Annie's Paper Boutique.  It was the perfect size to fill with some yummy M&M's.
I embellished both my card and treat package with a banner of tiny envelopes cut with a Quick Cuts die, I trimmed the envelopes down a bit so they would fit better.   The envelopes were draped over the gorgeous Aqua Licorice twine and adhered to the front of my card and treat box.  A small twine bow in Aqua Midnight was attached to the banners as an accent.  I also wrapped the treat box with the Aqua Midnight twine and tied it into a bow.  As a finishing touch, I added a sentiment tag stamped with the Scrappy Moms Hooray for Birthdays stamp set.
Stop by Annie's Paper Boutique to pick up this gorgeous twine and lots of fun treat packaging. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  Our theme for this challenge is "Saddle Up, Western Theme".   For my project, I created a sweet birthday card with the Teddy Bear Parade and County Fair cartridges.  I stamped the bear's face with the Cute and Cuddly Face Assortment Peachy Keen Stamps.
The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Cowboy Up stamp set; stamped on a hand cut tag and embellished with some silver bling.  The bling was also added to the corners of the "wanted" poster. The finishing touch was a lasso created with some Totally Kraft Trendy Twine and attached to the bear's hand.  A bit more twine was adhered to the sentiment tag.

Super Baby Layout

I created this layout using the new Super Babies cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  Although my babies are all grown up, I do have a 7 month old little nephew so this layout will be perfect for one of his pictures.
I found the perfect paper in my stash from DCWV.  All of the die cuts are from my subscription for my Cricut Explore, I love having access to thousands of images for my projects.  The finishing touch was a small twine bow in Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great Monday!
