CIU #187 - Celebrating Fall

Hello and happy Friday, more cold temps in the forecast.  I am back today to share my latest design team project for the Cut it Up challenge blog.  Celebrating Fall is the theme for challenge #187 and our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe.

Today's project share is another one where I struggled as I really wanted to do something different.  The jar of apples and sentiment is ffrom The Cutting Cafe, the wood grain paper and twine came from my stash;  I colored the apples with my color pencils, made the sentiment into a tag and added some wink of stellar to the top(not really visible in the picture).

I hope you will head over to the Cut it Up challenge blog for more Celebrate Fall inspiration, create and share your project using a die for a chance to win some files from our sponsor.  The challenge starts today and ends Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at noon EST.

Thank you for your visity, wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

World Kindness Day

Hello and happy World Kindness Day!   After our first sighting of snow yesterday and the drop in temperature I pulled out the big coat, scarf and gloves this morning!  Today's project share is something new for me but not new to the industry.  I am sharing my very first memory dex/rolodex card.  One of my scrappin' besties suggested that we do a December daily so off to YT for some ideas before I commit to another project.  After watching December Daily Memory Dex Spinner  I have decided that I am going to do this for my December daily but not with the spinner I am making a box; so stay tuned as I prepare for this project.  So for my first run I decided to do a Fall themed card since that's what I am working on now.  The rolodex card is a file from the Silhouette store, I used  misc. scraps of paper, stickers and a Darice tree die and this project was done!  I am sharing this project for challenge #382 over at Use Your Stuff and challenge #513 over at Just us Girls.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon, stay warm.

Veterans Day

Hello Monday and Happy Veterans Day!  I am thankful for those that currently serve, have served and gave the ultimate sacrifice.  Today I am doing a quick drive by post sharing a card that I made for one of my co-workers, she is an army veteran.  I  used sketch inspiration from Sketch N Scrap #157, papers from a 6x6 paper pad called Uniformed Collection that I picked up from HL a few years ago.  I used the Stand and Salute Cricut cartridge for the helmet and a stamp from my stash.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll visit again soon.

Baby it's Cold Outside

Hello and happy cold Thursday!  Today project share is a card created for a 12 Cards of Christmas challenge being hosted over at Soul Scrappers.  I know that I should be working on my Fall/Thanksgiving cards but I saw this challenge and decided to participate.  I used the buffalo check piece of pattern paper  and the sentiment cut apart from the Simple Stores Classic Christmas 6x6 pad, another pad, a corrugated piece of cardstock for the tag and the December 25 Cricut cartridge for the snowflakes.  I used some Recollections glittered cardstock for the snowflakes.

Thank you for your visit, I hope you'll return soon.

Be Merry

Hello and happy Wednesday, seasonal temps in the forecast.  Today I am doing a quick drive by post of a super simple holiday card using sketch #432 over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday,  I used 5 different pieces of scrap pattern paper to make this card.  I used an Art-c stamp for the sentiment and finished the card by adding a few Paper Studio enamel dots.  The papers came from the Recollections Sugar Plums 6x6 paper pad and it is almost done, I might have enough scraps to get maybe two more cards done.  I am sharing this card for Use Your Stuff challenge #381 - Use Scraps.

Thank you for your visit, have a wonderful Wednesday.

Hello and happy Tuesday, seasonal temps in today's forecast.  So how goes your sleeping did you remember to fall back over the weekend?  Since November is traditionally the month of Thanksgiving and gratitude I decided to create a gratitude wall at work as a moral booster!  We are doing a 30 days of gratitude where each day a staff member list something.   I created the banner, acorns and leaves using the Pretty Pennant, Artiste, Designer Calendar and the Create-a-Critter  Cricut cartridges.  The small leaves and sunflowers are leftover items from other projects.   I'm sharing this LO for the Fall Holiday - Anything Goes challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2 and challenge #123 over at Love to Craft November challenge #40.

Thank you for your visit, hope you have a terrific Tuesday.
