Flaunt It Fridays - Nifty Fifties

Thank you all for flaunting your Cindy Loo cartridge projects with us last week - they were amazing!!

For this week's challenge we are asking you to use the NIFTY FIFTIES cartridge and the cut choice this week is the CAR on Page 24! You can create anything you want and for that extra challenge, try to create something different from last week's project. If you do not own this cart feel free to use any similar cut from any cartridge, you have one week to enter the challenge.

This month's Grand Prize is sponsored by the wonderful SHEREE Cravin Scrappin thank you Sheree!



Here is my project (I am getting a head start on some Fathers Day Cards!!)
The background paper is from DCWV and I used an argyle cuttlebug folder. I inked the edges on the card and dressed it up with some buttons.


Now - wait until you see what all the other designers have come up with, you will definitely be inspired!!


Blessings, Jenny

Birthday Gift Card Holder - Cindy Loo

Hello Again,
Last week for my Flaunt It Friday design post we used Cindy Loo. Well while I had it out and loaded up I also needed to make a gift card holder as my son was going to a birthday party on Saturday. I used DCWV paper and cut this at 8inch (could have been a bit smaller - I originally cut it at 4in and that was way to small).



The sticker is from Karen Foster - I just love the dimension on it. I used Glue Dots to hold the gift cards down. Easy!!

Happy Easter - HE Is Risen Alleluia!!!

Happy Easter!!

This is the last (and most favorite) of my Easter cards!! These were made again with the Easter Seasonal from 2010.

The background paper is actually from a baby stack from K & Co., the label was cut from Lacy Labels - I cuttlebugged, glossy accented and glittered it up. I used some seam binding and ran an ink pad over it to match my colors, some Prima flowers and a My Pink Stamper Stamp.

Happy Easter and remember - it is only by His Grace that we are Saved because of his sacrifice. Enjoy the day with your Family and Friends.

Blessings, Jenny

Easter Shadow Box - A Childs Year

Hello Friends,
I bought some shadow boxes recently on sale at M's and need to start putting these to some good use for seasonal decorating. I decided to use A Child's Year to make this seasonal Easter piece:


I cut the image and then the shadow. Then I used LOTS of Prima Flowers in shades of purple to add some additional dimension. This is so simple but really looks beautiful. It is currently hanging in the powder room and will have to be repurposed for Graduation time.

Flaunt It Fridays - Cindy Loo Anything Goes

Hello FIF Peeps,

I decided to use the cupcake wrappers on the cartridge to get ready for some Easter cupcakes - imagine you see YUMMY cupcakes inside of these (0:

I used K & Co. paper and some gems for the eyes on the birds. These were cut at 3 in and are very intricate so you want to use a lower speed.

Friday Frills Design Team Day - Quote

Hello Again - This is my second post today please continue to scroll down for my Flaunt it Friday post - thanks! (or click here:http://kozfam5.blogspot.com/2011/04/flaunt-it-fridays-simply-charmed.html)

For our Friday Frills Design team we were challenged to make a project using a Quote since Quick Quotes is our sponsor this week. I unfortunately do not have any Quick Quote product so did some searching on the ol' internet and found a football quote to use on a scrapbook layout of my son.

This Quote is from Joe Namath:

I love this because one of the ideals we are trying to instill with our family is that we are a Team, sharing and being honest are required. Now here is the complete layout:




I have SO many more of these that I need to get onto some pages so I hope to have some scrappy time this weekend to do that. BTW - the center is the Cutest Kid I must say (although I am a bit biased!!)

Flaunt It Fridays - Simply Charmed

For this week's challenge we were asked to use the SIMPLY CHARMED cartridge and the cut choice this week is the fish 2 it's the Shift button on page 41 .  If you do not own this cart feel free to use any similar cut from any cartridge, you have one week to enter the challenge.  


I was really unsure of what to do with this cut - hence the Challenge. I did settle on making a card using a Joys Life Stamp and a CUTE Peachy face:



I used a cuttlebug folder, stickles, floss and some doodling. Have a Happy Friday all and get your Flaunt on!!

Scrapbook Layout Using Baby Steps

I am WAY behind in my scrapbooking and when I decided that I needed to start making some pages it really felt good. I am attempting to work on some pages for my daughters albums as they feel really left out. I made this page of my daughter Elizabeth's first Haircut.


Paper is from K & Co., little girl is cut from Baby steps using an awesome Peachy face on her, scissors and comb are from a Lite cartridge and I actually did use a journaling circle from Jillibean Soup.

TIC TAC Tornado

My sons second grade class is discussing weather and they have read Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and will be showing the movie this week. To go along with the unit, the kids needed to make a diorama of sorts to depict some funky weather. Well, we came up with a tic tac tornado. Now mind you, he had to put this together (with a little help from mom) and then write a story to go along with his project.

We cut out some houses, a road, trees, birds, leaves, clouds, lightening bolts and a tornado:





He was pretty proud of it and is excited to read his story at school. Thanks for sharing in our class project.

Spring Seasonal, Create A Critter, swiss dots cuttlebug folder, doodling, inking and gems
