Last day of the month. Where did the time go? This will be the first year in 25 years that I am not taking my kids out trick-or-treating. So instead, I made treat bags and boxes for my co-workers.
The patterns are from My Scrap Chick. Had lots of fun making them.
Winnie the Pooh is such a loveable little bear. When I joined a Disney swap I knew that Pooh was the one I wanted to do. I have had this cricut cartridge since it came out and it gave me the perfect opportunity to play with it.
The swap needed to have a character at least 5 inches tall, a title, and a journaling box. I just had to add the sign.
I have been busy working on my swaps for the month of October. I finished up the baby swaps first. This is what I made for baby boy using the color blue.
The pattern is from KaDoodle Bug Designs.
I also used a baby pattern from KaDoodle Bug Designs for the baby girl swap. I did add my own little shirt to the girl, because I wanted to add more pink.
And for the neutral swap I used a pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven to make this adorable little rocking horse.
I am still working on the Thanksgiving swap and hope to post those soon.
Today I’m going to share with you the scrapbook titles I did for the rest of the swaps due the end of this month.
For the School Days theme, using primary colors, I made this cute little mouse holding an apple for his teacher. I used the pattern Back to School Mice, from KaDoodle Bug Designs.
For the Apple Picking theme, using red, brown, orange, and yellow, I made a vertical border. I used the Apples in Basket pattern from Miss Kate Cutables and the leaf border punch from Martha Stewart. I added glossy accents to the apples to give them a nice shine.
I just love squirrels and this title worked great for the Squirrels/Chipmunk theme, using brown, yellow and green. Nuts About Fall pattern from Miss Kate Cutables and some nutmeg Flower Soft to make this cute title piece.
And the last title, using Happy Harvest from Miss Kate Cutables and some Stickles glitter glue, is my all time favorite. I just love the layers on the pumpkins and the glitter looks so much better when seen in person.
Since I am now done with my September swaps, its time to start next months. I will be doing Thanksgiving and baby themes. Can’t wait to get started.
Hi everyone. It’s been awhile since I’ve been here.
I have been busy making titles for a few swaps that I am in. I really enjoy these swaps as I get to see the talents of others.
The first title I did was for a Grandparent’s Theme using primary colors.
I sprayed it with iridescent glitter dust, but you can’t see it. Too bad. It really adds a charm to the piece.
Next, I made a title for the theme Friendship Day with neutral colors. I am not sure that I used neutral colors, but that is really hard to do when you use flowers. And I really like the flowers so I kept them on the piece.
I also used a gold glitter dust on this one. You can see this a little bit better than the other one, it just doesn’t glitter in this picture as well as it does in person.
Finally, I did titles for National Dog and National Cat Day using the colors brown, yellow, red and green. I have 5 dogs so this one was no problem. I’m sure I will have no problem using the pieces that I get from this swap with all the pictures my daughter, Lucy, takes of her dog. The cat on the other hand, well, we don’t have any, but my good friend Lynda loves cats and I’m sure she can find some pictures to go with this swap. She will be surprised when I give it to her.
All of the title patterns are from Miss Kate Cutables. I just love her diecuts. The swaps are due at the end of the month so I got my titles done in plenty of time. Hope the others are hard at work on theirs.
Week 6. Still hanging in there and so are 3 others. The sketch for this week:
These were the other rules to follow:
1. Stay true to the sketch.
3. Use a border punch.
4. Use at least 2 hand-made flowers.
5. Use bling.
At least we started out with a two page layout and the extras seemed easy enough to follow. So here is what I came up with.
I wasn’t really sure I liked it, but I followed all the rules and stayed true to the sketch. After I submitted my layout for the challenge Sarah and I decided to play around with it and this is what we did. Now this, I liked. More my style.
Which do you like better?
