The Cuttlebug Spot Goes Vintage & Scrapbook Circle Reveals

Hey guys! Happy Monday to ya! It is just absolutely beautiful here in Alabama today. The sun is shining, there is a light breeze, and it is just about perfect! I opened all the blinds and doors while I scrapped. The natural light was great for scrappin'!!

First up, we have another new challenge for ya at The Cuttlebug Spot. This week, we are creating vintage themed projects. You must hop on over to the blog and see all of my fellow DT sisters creations! Love 'em! Here is the link for ya:


For me, when I think of vintage, I always think of creams, burgundy's, blues, and golds. So that is the colors I tried to pull when I made this card. I decided to make another easel card. I used the Mosaic Texture embossing folder for the burgundy cardstock. All of the patterned paper is Die Cuts With A View. I also pulled in some red tulle, gold bling, and a gold button. Here is my vintage project:


Mom has a whole tin full of these gold buttons in all sorts of patterns/sizes. I need to purchase some. They are so unique.

I used the Cricut Home Decor' cartridge for the medallion shaped. The alphas are Making Memories.

Next up, I have been working with the MARVELOUS March kit from Scrapbook Circle today. I have to say this kit is one of my favorite kits I have ever worked with. I just love everything that is in there. I have created 4 layouts and 1 altered project with the kit so far and still have a ton of stuff left. I hope to work on some cards with the kit either tonite or tomorrow. Anyways, today I finished up 2 layouts.

I cut the shaped paper that you see in the back ground out using my Cricut and SCAL software. I turned it on a diagonal, glued it down, and cut off the tips. If you are interested in this shaped paper, drop me an email at aymee810@yahoo.com and I will email ya the svg for it. I also cut the title lettering with SCAL. This font is Mr. and Mrs. Popsicle....my fave at the moment. All of these papers, except the solid cardstock are from the kit. Aren't they so yummy?!!! I pulled in some ribbon, bling, and twine. The "You're Sweet" sticker is Cosmo Cricket and also from the kit.

This is one of my fave pix of Carter. I love that 'toothy grin', as we say. :)

I put the lettering on with pop dots to pop up the title. I also turned up the edges of the patterned paper that I used a border punch on (Martha Stewart border punch) to add some dimension.


This is the second layout I did today with the SBC March Kit. I made some lollipop flowers with leftover scraps of paper. I added buttons and rhinestones to the center. I stamped the 'leaves' of the lollipop flowers with a Autumn Leaves clear stamp. I also brought in some yellow embroidery floss and added a few stitches. Everything else, including the burlap, is from the kit.

Another pic that just cracks me up each time I see it!

Well, that's all for me today. I am off to clean up my scrappy mess and get ready for dinner. I hope all of you have a fabulous evening! Thanks for stoppin' by and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
