Easel

Hey there! Happy Wednesday!
I am up on the My Scraps & More Blog today sharing a project I made  using the Fancy Pants Corrugated Cardboard and the Merry Little Christmas Embellishment Kit.
I took a chalkboard easel that a bought some time ago at Michaels, added some corrugated cardboard and topped it off with some embellies from the kit:

 
I plan on displaying this in my living room this holiday season.
 
Hope you have a wonderful day!

December Inspiration Elevator: My Challenge

Our main purpose here at IE is to challenge ourselves, each other and YOU to take the creative process to the next level;  to inspire growth and change in our scrapbooking beyond our usual boundaries.
You can see all of Inspiration Elevator's previous challenges on Facebook .

 This month's challenge was issued by me.  Here is the challenge I gave this creative team:

" Scrap A Christmas Past.
We all have them- one Christmas that sticks out more in our minds than others. Maybe it was when you were a child or maybe it was more recent. Maybe it was a gift you received that makes it memorable. Maybe a special visitor? Create a page, with or without photos and tell us the story behind that Christmas.."


We encourage you to check out each designer's creation this month: here's a complete list of this month's participating designers!

When I issued this challenge, I had a few Christmas' that stuck out in my mind. The first was when the kids were 2 and 3, I loved the look of delight on their faces that Christmas morning as they realized Santa had come and left them so many presents.
The second was the one I choose to scrap about- being snowed in one Christmas Eve. I was a junior in high school, some of my older brothers and sisters were already on their own, just us younger ones at home. It was so fun to have all my siblings and their spouses back in one house and sleeping under the same roof again!
I didn't have a photo of that special Christmas, so I decided to use lots of mixed media items and do my first photoless page.
For my background I used KI Memories diecut snowflake paper and added 3 different colors of mist. I used Echo Park papers, letters (Christmas Eve), and a journaling card. I also used Fancy Pants corrugated paper and added Modge Podge with glitter added in it. I took an old chipboard window frame I have had in my stash for quite awhile and added light modeling paste and glitter to it to resemble snow drifts.
Here is my page:

 
Here are some close ups:
 
I used lots of old embellies from my stash.

 
A Gossomer Blue wood veneer arrow.
For my title I added Stickles to the top of my letters to resemble snow as well:


I used some old Fancy Pants chipboard stars, painted them yellow and added glitter on top:

 



Here you can read my journaling:

Christmas Carols

Hello!
Over on the Cards In Envy Blog is a fun challenge to play along with. All you have to do is create an A2 card using a Christmas Carol.
I used the song We Wish You a Merry Christmas along with Carta Bella Christmas Day and came up with this card:

Pillow Box

Hey there!
Just wanted to share a project I created using the Fancy Pants Corrugated Cardboard.
I found directions on how to make a pillow box on Pinterest and decided to try making one.

I used the red Corrugated Cardboard along with the Fancy Pants Merry Little Christmas Embellishment kit and came up with this:



                  I am going to add some Hershey Kisses and give it to my Goddaughter for Christmas.

                          You can find the Corrugated cardboard in all the Fancy Pants kits.

Stop back next week where I will be sharing my last corrugated cardboard project with you.
                                                                 Enjoy your day!

November PL

It's that time again! Where oh where did November go?!
It's time for me to post my PL Sketch at Turtle Soup.

Here is my 2 pager using a kit I have had forever from Scrap Dango:


                                                                        Left side:



                                                                         Right side:

 
This probably looks like a Sierra 2 pager and it probably should be but I am ashamed to say I didn't take any pics of DH or DS. Hanging my head in shame here.

                                                          Here is my November sketch:

 
I would love to see what you do with this sketch. Please share if you use it.

Love, Love, Love

Happy Wednesday Scrappy Friends!
Just wanted to share a layout I have up on the My Scraps & More Blog. I created this layout using Fancy Pants Corrugated Cardboard as my background.
There is so much you can do with these sheets and Fancy Pants includes them in their kits.
 I will be sharing a few other projects I created the next two Wednesdays as well, so be on the lookout.
I used the kraft corrugated cardboard for my background, it's perfect for those beach pages! I added some blue Glimmer Mist to mimic the water and then added some Pink Paislee Solstice papers and gold stickers. I added a doily and a Crate Paper Notes & Things Journaling Card. The Love, Love, Love phrase is from the Amy Tangerine Bits package.

 
Here are some close ups:



 
I love the touch the pops of gold add to this page!
 
Don't forget, I will be posting another project next week using the corrugated cardboard from Fancy Pants.
 
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with us!
