A 'Revealin' Monday

Hey yall! How are you on this Monday morning? Good I hope! Today is the 15th, so that means reveal time again for Treasured Scrapbooking. I have had these first 2 project done for a while, but had to wait to reveal. We are to reveal layout #2 and our altered projects today. I was assigned to kit #1 this month. I just have loved this kit. It was so much fun to work with. The ribbons are so yummy!!! I would highly recommend this kit if you are in the market. I have made several layouts and an altered project and I still have goodies left over!! Love it! First, for my altered project, I created a paper topiary. This was really so easy to do and so fun. I used my Cricut to cut out the circles needed for the topiary. Then I gathered various items from around the house (urn, moss, wooden dowel, foam, and hot glue) to assemble it. So it was very cost efficient. Here is the topiary:

If you would like the instructions on how to make this topiary, go here:
Next, here is my second layout for the month. This is Carter. Even at 3 years old, I can already tell what a heartbreaker he will be. LOL. I used the Cricut Storybook cart for the bracket looking shape. I used my sewing machine on this one too for some stitching. Here it is:

If you can, do come on over to Treasured Scrapbooking today to see the rest of the DT's fabulous debuts!!! Awesome stuff!
I also wanted to share 2 new layouts with you. First, this week at The Cuttlebug Spot, we are celebrating our fathers. I created this layout in honor of my Daddy. I used the Swiss Dots and Script embossing folders. I cut the heart with the Cricut Wedding Solutions Cartridge. All papers are by Cosmo Cricket. I also included some cherry printed ribbon and stitching. The poem, which is printed on vellum, is one that I found online. This layout is also doing some double duty. I am using it for the 'Superman' challenge and 'layout with no pic' challenge on Treasured Scrapbooking. Here it is:

Next, it's time for another fun challenge at the Chirper Challenge blog. We were asked to follow a given sketch (which was designed by Beth on Treasured Scrapbooking). Also, we were to use black cardstock as our base and use only bright solids, no patterned paper. We were to doodle in either black or white. I have to admit, this one was a toughie for me! No patterned paper is hard!!!! I did squeeze in some patterned ribbon though. I used the following Cricut carts: Cuttin' Up, Home Accents, and Home Decor. I also incorporated some stitching, K & Co. embellishment, Stickles glitter glue, and ribbon. Here is the layout:

Do come on over and show us what your Cricut can do for this fun challenge:

Well, that is all for me today. The Treasured Scrapbooking newsletter should be out any day now and when it is, I will post the projects I made for it as well. So do come on back if you can!!! I hope all of you have a wonderful week! Take care and as always, I appreciate you stopping by! Hugs!
Pin It!

Mamie - Everything looks just gorgeous. All that wonderful brown embellie on "heartbreaker" is fabulous. And that "Super Man" layout is so heartwarming. That is so sweet. I love all the colors you used and the way you put it all together. That purple on the "mud" layout is stunning. I love all the details on it as well. As always, your work is stupendous:)
