Little Love Monster Card

Hello, today I have another fun card to share using the new Warts Up stamp set from Scrappy Moms Stamps September release.  For my card, I used the Toadally Wicked cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I modified the cutting file to create a shaker design.  The pumpkin's face was stamped with the Pumpkin Faces Peachy Keen Stamps.
A web border punched from the Martha Stewart border punch was adhered to the base of my card and the sentiment tag was added on top.  I used some Stickles on the witch hat for a bit of sparkle.  The finishing touch was a small bow in Grape Limeade Trendy Twine along with a small flower.
Here's a closer look at the new Warts Up stamp set, available here:

Witch Way to the Candy?

Happy Monday!  Today I have fun Halloween themed card to share.  I designed my card using a "tea length" card.  This style card is 4x9.25 inches and fits perfectly in a regular mail envelope.  I used the adorable Witchy Ghosts cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  Each of the witchy ghosts were matted on some card stock to keep them from blending into the background.  Instead of cutting out the faces for the ghosts I opted to used the Variety Face Assortment from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I just love the fun personality the face stamps add.
I accented the paper piecings with several different colors of Stickles for some sparkle and shine. The sentiment is from the new Warts Up stamp set from Scrappy Moms Stamps.  I stamped it on a tag cut from a Momenta die.  The sentiment tag was embellished with some Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine.  A couple of enamel dots and a coordinating button with a bit more twine were the finishing touch on my card.
Here's a closer looks at the stamp set I used:

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a coffee themed double paged layout featuring Cherry Latte Trendy Twine.  This double page layout is a fun representation of my recently found love for coffee.
I created the layout pages using Cafe Coffee Girls cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The girls face was stamped with Rosie's Favorites Face Assortment Peachy Keen Stamps.  The die cuts for my layout came from the Love You A Latte, Holly & Ivy and Summer Celebrations Cricut cartridges.
Some fun washi tape was adhered along the top and bottom edge of my layout pages.  I did a lot of embellishing with the Cherry Latte Trendy Twine.  Not only did I outline several of the cuts on my page with the twine, I also used it as an accent, the color combination was perfect.  All of the sentiments are from the Scrappy Moms Freshly Brewed stamp set.
Head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to pick up this gorgeous twine.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a fun project featuring Spooktacular Taffy Trendy Twine, and these adorable mini cups which the design time has been spotlighting this entire month.  For my project, I went with a Halloween theme and used these adorable Kraft metal rimmed tags which are new in the store.
After I covered my mini cup with some fun Halloween paper, I adhered a punched web border over some solid card stock and wrapped the coffee cup to create a sleeve.  One of the metal rimmed tags was adhered to the front of the cup while the other one was added as a tag.  The embellishments for the metal tags were cut from the Creepy Cookies cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  The Spooktacular Taffy twine was the perfect color combination for a fun embellishment not the lid of the coffee cup and on the tag.  I tucked in a small sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Bewitched stamp set.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a fun project featuring Cherry Latte Trendy Twine, and these adorable mini cups and mini spoons.  I created the coffee caddy using my Cricut Explore, however made lots of modifications to it by hand for it to fit my cup perfectly.
These adorable mini wooden spoons were tucked in the front of the caddy, however, also fit nicely in the back.  A bit of washi tape was wrapped along the top edge of the spoons for a decorative touch. The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Freshly Brewed stamp set and was stamped on a hand cut flag.
The mini cup was covered in some coffee themed paper and embellished with a small banner and Cherry Latte twine.  The tiny cups on the banner are cut from the kraft seal which is also adhered to the caddy, available from Annie's Paper Boutique.  I love that the mini cups are the perfect size to tuck in a K-Cup, these will be perfect office gifts for the upcoming holidays.

Girl Time Layout

As I scrapbook layout pages I have to remind myself to also capture the everyday moments and that is exactly what this layout is about.  I used the It's a Girl Thing cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs for all of the paper piecings.  The title was cut from the Paisley Cricut cartridge.
The whole page is so girly so I added the several flowers and lots of bling to keep within the theme.  I framed my word art paper on some solid card stock which was punched on the edges with the Scalloped Sentiments Fiskars punch.  A small tag with a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Girls Just Want to Have Fun stamp set was added to my layout page.  A small bow in Strawberry Cupcake Trendy Twine was the finishing touch on my layout.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Hello everyone!  I'm over on the Trendy Twine blog today with a fun card featuring Cherry Latte Trendy Twine.  I absolutely love the twist of red, kraft and white in this twine.  I created a yummy card using the Donut Lovers cutting file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  All of the donuts and the sleeve for the coffee cup were embossed with various Cuttlebug embossing folders.  The added texture certainly makes the donuts look more appealing even though donuts always look appealing to me.
I used the twine to accent the tag and lid on the coffee cup.  I also outlined the heart on the coffee sleeve with the twine.  A Cherry Latte Ziggy Trendy Page dot was added to the sentiment tag which coordinated perfectly with the twine.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Ice Cream Social stamp set.

KaDoodle Bug Designs Fall Project Challenge

Happy Friday!  Today I am hosting a challenge over on the KaDoodle Bug Designs Challenges group on Facebook.  We  have a new challenge hosted by each of the design team members every two weeks.  This challenge is a "fall project" challenge and runs from today until September 17th.  All of you have to do is create a "fall project" using a file from KaDoodle Bug Designs and post it in the challenge group for an opportunity to win one KaDoodle Bug Designs file of your choice.  For my project I created a fun shaker card.
I printed my scarecrow from the KaDoodle Bug Designs Happy Harvest Scarecrows cutting file.  The leaves for my shaker card were punched from the Fiskars Falling For You border punch.  Since they were punched from card stock, they are a bit heavier than sequins and have a tendency to fall to the bottom of the card.  I finished off my card with a fun sentiment from the Scrappy Moms A Holiday to Remember stamp set and a small bow in Totally Orange Trendy Twine.
Head on over to the KBD Challenges group on to join in this fun challenge.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Terrific Tuesday Challenge - Back to School

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at Scrappy Moms Stamps.  Our theme for this challenge is "Back to School".  For my project I created a double page layout.  My son is a senior in high school and I wanted to create a project that was a bit more grown up so I went with a different color theme instead of the usual primary colors.
I always keep track of the products I use for my projects, however, I completely forgot to do that for this layout.  I used several different cartridges from the subscription for my Cricut Explore.
The sentiments are from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set.  They were just perfect for my layout pages.  I created a shaker light bulb for my layout, it's a bit hard to see in the pictures.  My layout  was finished off with some Cherry Licorice Trendy Twine.
Please stop by Scrappy Moms Stamps to check out all of the design team projects and to link up your "Back to School" themed project to win a stamp set of your choice.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
