Debut Day!!!

Good Morning Saturday! How are yall doin' on this beautiful morning?! I am croppin' today and am so ready to scrap!!! But first, I wanted to blog since it is debut day for me at a lot of my DT's.

First up, it's time to get FIT at ScrapFIT! We have a fun new challenge up today! Go and check it out! We'd love to see what you can do!!!

"Family"
This is the layout I created for this challenge. This is my Daddy and Carter decked out in their Alabama football outfits. I miss Carter being this age sometimes. He was such a sweetie! He still is, but he was so loving when he was this small!! Anyways, I used my Cricut to cut the large circle. I used a Martha Stewart border punch called Scallop Dot for the other piece of paper. I inked both of these, as well as the exterior of the layout, with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Fired Brick. I used the EK Success Swiss Cheese border on my photo mat. I hope you can tell that part. I also brought in some stitching, Jenni Bowlin embellishment stickers, Pink Paislee alpha stickers, 7 Gypsies Gaffer tape, metal turnmounts, and a metal hinge. Here is this one:

Up close so you can see the outer edge of the photo mat:

"A Southernbelle's Scrappy Room"
Here is my altered project for the month of August for Treasured Scrapbooking. I used Kit #1 to create this cookie sheet board for my scrappy room. The small butterflies that you see are actually magnets. I simply hot glued some tiny round magnets to the back of them. With the cookie sheet being metal, this makes a great board to tack notes up on. I used my Crop A Dile to punch 2 holes (at the top and bottom) of each side of the cookie sheet. This allowed me to thread toile through for the top portion to hang it up and at the bottom for the pennant part. The pennant's are chipboard from Jenni Bowlin that came in the kit. I simply covered them up with some paper and decorated them. I used my Cricut to cut the medallion that the alpha's are on. The green alpha's are Thickers. I also brought in some ribbon, buttons, rhinestones, and more butterflies. This is so cute hanging in my scrappy room! I wish yall could see it in person! You should make one today!!! It was so inexpensive! I bought the cookie sheet in a pack of 3 for a little over $3 at Wal-Mart!!! Then just alter it up with paper and make you some magnets! Easy Peasy! Here it is:



The little butterflies are the magnets:

I used the magnets to put some postcards up so you can see how it looks when things are tacked up on the board:

"Heartstrings"
This is my second DT layout for the month of August for Treasured Scrapbooking. I used the August Kit #1 to create this layout. I had so much fun with this one. It took me forever to cut up all the little strips and stick them down where I wanted, but I think it was worth it. I love the effect it gives. This is also a new color palette for me. I do not work with orange very much, but it is growing on me. I used my Cricut to cut out 1-3" and 2-1 1/2" squares of double sided paper in order to make my pinwheels. I painted the Thickers alphas with some orange scrapbook paint. I also brought in a rub on, rhinestones, ink, and some stitching with my machine. Here is this one:

This week, I decided to make a little sign to hang up in my home during Halloween. I was inspired to do this by looking at all the new Halloween decoration they are beginning to put out in the craft stores. I also was just itchin' to use my new Martha Stewart Spiderweb Continuous Punch system. I am in love!!!!! Love it! Love it! LOVE IT!!!!! I added some embellishment from K & Co. along with some ribbon, pom pom trim, and toile. The lettering is from the Cuttin' Up Cricut cartridge. I added Stickles glitter glue to the lettering for some bling. The sign is actually a page out of a chipboard book that I altered up to meet my needs. Here it is:
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!! Thanks for stoppin' by!
Pin It!
