BBTB2 - Baby's It's Cold Outside

Happy Monday!

Did you all survive Thanksgiving?
Ours was a bit different this year, but it was still good.

Today over at BBTB2 I am hosting the challenge...
Baby It's Cold Outside
Let's see your projects featuring warm apparel!

I cut this fun winter hat from Winter Woodland.
My papers were all in my scrap stash,
but I think the majority are from American Crafts.

The sentiment is also from American Crafts.
The embellishments are from the Paper Studio.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

Cut It Up! - Shape Cards

Happy Friday!!!

We are supposed to get snow today here in Utah,
but you never know with our weather,
it could be 70 degrees instead.

Cut It Up

Anyway, over at Cut It Up! we have a new
challenge starting all about Shape Cards.

No automatic alt text available.

Our Lovely Sponsor:
$10 Gift Card

My Project:
Okay folks, our awesome sponsor let the DT choose
one of their files to work with for this challenge.
I have had a Brother Scan N Cut for pretty close to a year
and I have been too scared to figure out the whole SVG thing
because I am so used to my Cricut.
Anyway, I decided I would buck up and figure it out
for this challenge because I just love this Snow Globe cut.
I picked this SVG file from the
Holly Days set over at Flourette Bloom.

I just love how it turned out
and even though I feel that my neighbors
who put up their Christmas lights
before Thanksgiving are traitors,
I do have to admit this card put me
in a bit of the Christmas Spirit.

My holly berry paper is from Echo Park,
my red plaid is from DCWV and the
silver glitter paper is from The Paper Studio.

I don't know why I waited so long to figure out my
Scan N Cut, but now that I have, the possibilities
are ENDLESS!!!!

I hope you will join us over at Cut It UP!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

BBTB2 - Movie or Book

Happy Monday!

Today over at BBTB2 we have a new challenge
create a project inspired by a Movie or Book.

I recently added a couple Disney Princess cartridges
to my collection after finding them on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
So I just had to create a card based on "Tangled"

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie!!!

Anyway, here is Pascal, Rapunzel's best friend.
My papers are all from my scrap stash but wanted
to stay true to the color pallet of the movie,
purple and gold, and of course Pascal is green
and I think that combo is fabulous.

I hope you will join us over at BBTB2 this week.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
