Terrifically Thrilling Thursday

Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all. Thought it was only fitting to do a xmas layout using many Kreaxions punches. Fun and festive this time of year.
Many strips in rows.... starting at the top Kreaxions Punch #914, #305, double sided #307, top of row 4 is insert punched #917 and bottom is #911.
What a great way to use 5 punches on one layout.
Have a safe and happy holiday and see you again next week.... hugs Bev

Precious Layouts

My Sketch World December monthly challenges...
Kristin's Menu Challenge...brown and white colour.... patterned paper striped,
buttons, brads, bling and ric rak
This is the 2nd page of my double.. what a beautiful set.
They turned out amazing and of course the subjects are just to sweet too.

Cute Christmas Cards

This adorable image is from Digital 2 for Tuesday. What an amazing card this made. Stickles and sparkle on the image was perfect. Accent and title are the cutest stamps. Image is mounted on cardstock. So simple but elegant. This challenge was to use tags on a card. This card had a Martha punch for accent, the cutest sticker trees, a sentiment and ribbon on the tags. Just the cutest simple card with a little doodling outlines.

Fun Summer Layout

The kids had amazing fun with the kayaks this summer. The time spent on the water was so fabulous... many many hours. It is great exercise and good for them too. These layouts will keep the memory alive for them.

Layouts .. double pages to celebrate a wedding

My dear friends daughter was married and I have been doing a few double page layouts as keepsakes of the fabulous day. The one above had some fussy cuts and pop ups. Used a Martha Stewart punch as an accent. There are some sparkled captions on this too.
The wedding was held in a new shed on the grooms parents farm. The out door decorations were rustic and beautiful. Inside was fabulous and many accents were purple. The entry table had many personal items that belonged to the bride. She loves horses so the lamp with etchings, the money box with the horse and carriage... it was beautiful. A little fussy cuts on this one, some butterflies, more purple sparkled brads and trim.

Practical Scrappers

Practical Scrappers December sponsor for December

is Stitchy Bears Stamps .. and the Digi stamp is called "Lite Bright"

On this card I added gel dots, rubons, ribbon and a popped up star.

Patties's Creations Challenge #9

Punches.. this was so much fun.
These are both Martha Stewart punches.. both beautiful.
The digi is adorable and perfect with the sparkled accents.
I added a title, some brads and a ribbon... perfect.

Digital Challenges

Meljen's Designs challenge #37 is to use RED. GREEN. GOLD. on the card. I use lots of these colours in the layeres, the border and the string accent. And isn't he the most adorable sparkly snowman you ever saw.
For Designed 2 Delight I purchased the digi and made this cute tag. I used all the same colours with lots of layers again. RED. GREEN. GOLD. I must appologize for the colouring.. my copics are not with me... so would you believe I am using the grandkids markers, crayons and pastels.. a combo of all of them and still not close to copics.. they really are amazing and shouldn't leave home without them.

Practical Scrappers digi sponsor this month is Stitchy Bear Stamps. These cute hanging ornaments were their beautiful sponsored digi this month and I put it on many layers of xmas papers. I also used the Kreaxions Punch #914 Poinsettia backed with forest green on the border. Added some cute metal snowflake brads and all done.

Card Challenges @ My Sketch World, Lollipop Crafts, Dutch Dare

Scarlett's Card Challenge was to make a card that would
also pass as a xmas decoration for the tree.
You just cut apart the front from the back sentiment section and
waalaa an ornament... how cool is that.
This one didn't quick work the way I wanted ..
so I made a slide sentiment that goes through
the centre of the ornament.
* I am submitting these Ornaments also to*

card. This cute paper made a scene with outdoors, trees and
a small town setting and just the cutest little deer.

Scarlett's 2nd card challenge was to
create a winter scene... these cute trees and snow people
