The Paper Bakery Sketch #4

I was able to get some pictures on a page again and this time I used the sketch from The Paper Bakery Sketch #4.

 I flipped the sketch to suit the pictures I was using. Paper is from Carta Bella Beach Boardwalk Collection and DCWV. All of the added elements were in the Carta Bella Beach Boardwalk pack.

Thanks for looking!

My Favorite Things - Cheerleader

I needed to make a card for a sweet girl that just made the High School Cheer Squad:


Is she not a cutie patootie! I colored her up with Copics using the school colors, used a couple Little Yellow Bicycle gems, added some floss and cuttlebugged the background. (Oh and she is on an action wobble!)

The Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge 2 for April

I missed the deadline on this but wanted to use the sketch to again get some pictures onto pages:

These pictures sure do make me smile! I used the All about Boys stack and Nanas Kids from DCWV. I just love how so many of their stacks coordinate so that you are able to use them together.

Circle Ville Oh The Places You'll Go Challenge

This challenge provided us with a sketch to use. I utilized the sketch and made a card for my mom for Mothers Day.

I used the Doodle Charms cartridge for my lady bug and the Daisy cuttlebug folder for dimension. Paper is from a 6x6 pad from MME called Gnome Sweet Gnome. Stamp is from Stampendous. Google eyes, button, doodle pen and floss are all from stash.

In all, the Circle Ville Challenges got me crafting and using cartridges I have not used in a long time or EVER. It was so nice to just do something.

My Take - May Stack-a-holic Template Challenge

Hello Friends,
Did I mention how much I am loving using Templates to get my pictures on to pages. DCWV sure helps with this when they offer their Template Challenge each month. Here is my take on the May Challenge:

I used the Playtime stack and scraps that I had leftover from the Celebration stack papers that I used in the April Challenge. The Playtime Stack is all printed on Kraft paper and let me tell you the background cloud paper is very sparkly in person - so pretty!

Thanks for continuing to inspire me with the templates and your amazing paper DCWV!!!

Circle Ville Tic Tac Toe Challenge

I used the A Child's Year cartridge utilizing the card feature along with the Swiss Dots cuttlebug folder. Paper is from paper Try Ink, stamp is from My Creative Time Mom You Rock set. Stickles, ribbon and bling from stash.

Circle Ville One Sheet Wonder Challenge

This was a fun challenge and one where I learned something new. You were to use 1 sheet of 12x12 paper and cut and score it in a way to make a mini album (book). I have seen these before but have been intimidated - well no more, this was really easy. The hardest part is just deciding on the design and embellishments.

Here is my project:




I used the K & Co Sweet Nectar Stack. For all the frames I used the Fancy Frames cartridge. Embellishments are all from a K & Co pack that I have had a LONG time.

Circle Ville Challenge Did I Mension

I was able to complete 11 challenges in total for the Circle Ville Challenges and it I was able to learn a few new tricks too!

Here is the project I made for the Did I Mension challenge:


I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 cartridge to make a lipstick box. Now I think this is a little big for a lipstick. I am going to fill this with some Laffy Taffy for my MIL to go with her Mothers Day gift.

Paper used was from Sweet Nectar by K & Co and the tag is from K & Co. as well. The tulle and button are from Websters pages and the gems are all Little Yellow Bicycle.

CircleVille Challenge Ease on Down the Road & What's It Owl About

I was so excited to be able to participate in so many of the CircleVille NSD challenges -- and to learn something new too!!

I made an easel card for the first time and I just love how it came out and how easy it was to do.

I used the Paisley cartridge for my cutie owl, paper is all from DCWV both the 12x12 and 4.5 x 6.5 Grade School stack.  Perfect for teacher appreciation cards. I used google eyes on both the cards, my stamp is from My Creative Time Chocolate Greetings set, twine from the Twinery, brads and flowers from my stash. 

Now I  just need to buy a gift card to include and these are ready to go.

CircleVille Challenge - It's All About Perspective

I put together a card for the Challenge It's All About Perspective.

I used my Suburbia cartridge for the first time on this one:



There were heads a flying as I was cutting apart my image to try to add the dimension that was required for this challenge. I inked, chalked and pop-dotted away. I also scored on her skirt to add some pleats.

Background paper is from a 6x6 pad from Lost & Found by MME. Twine is from Papertrey Ink, bling from Little Yellow Bicycle, a cuttlebug folder for more dimension and that Sassy Stamp is from Unity.

CircleVille Timed Challenge

There was a challenge to use any Circle Cartridge and complete your project in 1 hour. I used my Out of Character cartridge for the 1st time and made a Mother's Day card.

Honestly this is not my favorite but with the clock running and a project needing to be completed I just kept forging ahead. Paper is from Teresa Collins Posh line, I used a cuttlebug folder for some dimension, a Teresa Collins brad and some Prima flowers with brads in the middle.

Hope you had some fun playing in CircleVille or just playing on NSD!!

CircleVille Challenge Go Big or Go Home

I am participating in the Circleville NSD challenge to do something BIG!!

The challenge is to use an oversized photo or title or both on your project.

How easy is that?!

And with your Cricut making a BIG title is super easy.

Here is the layout I did:
Don't you just love when you find self-portraits on your camera LOL! Well when I saw this one I had to print it big and thank goodness I did since it works so well for this challenge. This is actually from a few years ago so I am glad I was able to get it onto a page!

I used the DCWV All About Boys stack and matted my picture with some cardstock from the Brights stack. I used the Cricut cartridges - All About Boys (title), Space Party (alien) and  Home Decor (for Adore). Some Thickers for my word and done! 

Great Challenge!!! Looking to do a few more so I better get cracking.

Blessings, Jenny
