Popaw's Boy

Hello everyone! Well, here is the last LO for the day. I did this double LO for a sketch challenge on DIY. I used my new Cricut Home Decor cart for it.

I need one sooo bad! Thanks for looking! Yall take care and have a great rest of the evening! I'm off to crop with a friend tomorrow, so I'll be back tomorrow night! :)

Red Velvet

Hey everyone! I wanted to post this LO for yall. I am using this LO for 2 challenges: one on Just Scrappin' and one on Treasured Scrapbooking. Both challenges were to do a LO on food. So I had to choose my favorite, Red Velvet Cake! Yum! Me and mom made this cake for Thanksgiving, so I had to stage it for a photo. I also made the little slice of cake that is next to it. I cut it out using the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. As for the LO, I used the Home Accents, Storybook, Christmas Solutions, and Home Decor cartridges. I also used the D'Vine Swirl and Swiss Dots Embossing folders for some dimension. The gold lettering and gold dots are Thickers. Also, I journaled with a gold pen. A note you might not can see, I wrote the recipe for this delicious cake around the edge of the LO so that future generations can enjoy it too!!! Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone is having a great evening! I'm off to pack! I get to scrap with my friend Michelle tomorrow! Yay!!! Take care everyone!

Cards! Cards! Cards, Everywhere!

Hello everyone! Well, did you have a good Thanksgiving? I know I did. My parents came up from Bama and we all had the absolute best time. Mom and I had so much fun making Christmas cards. Just gettting to spend time with her was so much fun for me. I miss them already!!! The house is so quiet! I hated to see them go!!! But, I do hope each of you had a great Thanksgiving!!!

Also, I have some big news! I got my Christmas present early from my mom! She bought me a Cricut Expression! How cool is that???? I love my mom! She is the best in the world! She bought one for me and one for her. So we both are going to sell our small Cricut's. So if anyone is in the market or know anyone who is, let me know! :) I just love the new machine! It totally rocks! So fun!!!!! I hope to get back to scrapping today and back to the norm. I am looking forward to it!

I wanted to show yall all we got done. We did Christmas cards. These first one's are mine. I posted the insides of the cards too for the one's we glammed up a bit more on the inside. We also each decorated the envie's. It was so fun!!! Most of these were scraplifted from the ladies on the cricut message board. They all are sooo inspirational and I wanted to make sure they each got the credit! Thanks for the inspiration girls! We tried to put our own unique spins on each of the scraplifted one's though. :)We had fun playing with all the new punches and things.


Here are my mom's! Aren't they pretty? She is a great card maker!! So inspiring!

Thank you all for stopping by! I hope you all are well! Brandon and I are both still getting over this horrid cold. It's awful, I tell ya! Yall take care! I look forward to bloggin again each day and seeing all that yall are up to too! Have a great rest of the day!!! Hugs!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Good Morning! Hope all of you are well on this Thanksgiving morning. I wanted to post some work that I have had done before I got started on today. Mom and I are cooking a Thanksgiving lunch today. Yum! I can't wait! My cold is really acting up again today! I tell you what, you think you are over this mess, and then it hits again! Ugh! But I am trying to make the best of the situation. I hope all of you have a great day today!

Now for the work I need to show ya. This first LO is for the Treasured Scrapbooking November Recipe Challenge. I 'ingredients' were to use: chipboard, a flower, bling, and both sides of patterned paper. This is a LO for my darling husband, Brandon. I used Thickers for my title. The chipboard is the little man next to the title, which was given to me by Cristal. I inked it up in a darker color. Isn't it the cutest thing? She game me a boy one and a girl one. They look like the symbols on a bathroom door. Love it! Too funny! Then for the bling I used some blue/green rhinestones and the heart rhinestones. I used a green prima flower and a bingo tag, also given to me by Cristal. I used my cricut to cut the owl, which I embellished with stickles. I also used my MS Doily Lace punch. I am in love with this paper!!! I got it during the Fiskafrenzy. So here is this one:

This second layout is for the Treasured Scrapbooking November "Use a Number In Your Title" challenge. This is of my Daddy and nephew Carter. More of that cute Sassafrass paper used. I also cut the embellishement from the leftover paper to use. I used foam thickers for my title. I also incorporated some brads and photo anchors (turn mounts.) My journaling is on the picture. So here is this one:

Up close of embellishment:

Third, here is another layout I started at the Fiskafrenzy crop. I LOVE this pic of Carter. It is just too cute. I used my cricut for the flourish. I used a metal embellishment. Me and Cristal split a pack of journaling sheets while I was in Nashville. So the journaling part is on some new stuff. I really like those journaling sheets. They help me out a ton!! Also, this paper is some that Fiskars graciously gave us at the event. I also distressed it up a bit. Here is this one:

Next, this LO is for the November Sketch Challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking. More of that cute paper. I cut the clouds and the deer otu of another sheet of this line of paper to use as embellishment. I also used some cute new stickers for the title and the journaling. I tell you what, Cristal and Cherrie really have an effect on my scrapbooking! I love the things they gave me. Wasn't that so nice? It is different than my usual, but I love it! So another huge Thank You to each of them!! So here is this one:

Close up of pic...isn't he a doll? LOL! I know, I'm partial, but can't help it. This photo was taken this past summer.

This last LO is doing double duty for me. I am using it for the November "Felt It" Challenge at Treasured Scrapbooking and for the DIY November Single Sketch Challenge. The challenge at TS was to use felt. I used white felt on my Hello Kitty, which I cut with Cristal's sizzix while in Nashville. The sketch is from Jess at DIY. I used some velvety prima's. The white dots and definition of sweet are both rub on's. I also incorporated some bling, stickles, and distressing:

Close up of Hello Kitty I pieced together:

Close up of title, "Girly Girls." This pic is of me and my niece, Autumn Grace. We definitely both are such girly girls! I got these cute glittery alpha's from a friend at Just Scrappin'. I had won them in our recent crop.

Last, but not least, I made this altered cookie caddy for this week's challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot. The challenge this week was to make an altered item using your cuttlebug. So I used a tutorial to make a paper basket. I used the Ornaments and Snow Embossing folders for the panels. I used some gingerbread man die cuts for the decoration. I added some stickles to them for the 'icing.' Then, I am in love with this ribbon. I got it at Hobby Lobby, It say's "Christmas Cookies" on the ribbon. I am going to put some homemade cookies in this to give as a hostess gift when I go to a cookie swap this month.

Thanks for looking! Mom and I are working on Christmas Cards and I will post those soon! Have a wonderful day today!!!!
