Holly Jolly Christmas

I've been itching to participate in a color challenge for a while but my SU paper collection isn't huge and my paper stash never seemed to have the right colors. I had a duh moment the other night: use My Digital Studio. I picked up some overlays from Ocean Wide Designs so now I can create my own DSP for the colors SU doesn't offer as DSP.
This week over at Colour Q they had a fairly traditional Christmas palette.

Here is the card I made using the cute snow bunny peeker digital stamp from KaDoodle Bug Designs I really wish MDS would allow you to color your images in the program. The bunny would look much better with a shadow. Both the red paper and the green striped paper have overlays from Ocean Wide Designs over top. All the other elements from this card are from MDS.

Feed ME!!

I seem to be using the dog cutting file from KaDoodle Bug DEsigns quite a bit lately. He's such a cute dog. I have at least 2 more projects floating around in my head that uses this cutie.
This little puppy is for my son, I opted to use scraps from my stash since this will not be something that I expect to be around for a long time so he's not the pretties puppy I've made. With 2 small boys I'll be lucky if it will be around for a month. He's been finished for a few days and I've already had to pop his head back into shape. He was stepped on, poor guy.

birthday cupcakes

I made these cupcake toppers using the png files from Little Scraps of Heaven's Fireman pattern. I also used a shape file from Penny Duncan
I had a duh moment after I had the cupcakes frosted. I roasted the 3 pumkpins we decorated from Halloween so I have a TON of pumpkin in my freezer. I found a yummy pumpkin cupcake recipe complete with a pumpkin frosting. I wasn't until I started sticking the cupcake toppers in that it dawned on me that orange frosting didn't quite go with my red, white and black fireman theme. Oh well they tasted really good.

Rufus the Firedog

I made this dalmation for my son's birthday party. The file is the from KaDoodle Bug Designs The original file is not a dalmation, I hand cut a bunch of spots to turn this cute dog into a dalmation.

My time made easy challenge

The colors started out from a blog I discovered late last night. I turned away from the computer and the darn thing restarted on it's own. I found the website that had the sketch again but I have no idea what color challenge I was following. Uggh. The original challenge was to use black, white, peach parfait, so saffron and daffodil delight. Since I lost the website I changed the black to pink but used the rest of the colors.
I created this card using the sketch from My time made easy ">

The little girl is a cutting file from Treasurebox designs
In real life the little girl has a mouth, not sure why it's not showing up in the picture.

2nd layout from this weekend

Here is the second layout I finished this weekend. Again the papers are from my stash. Most of these cut files are from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I played around with the scissor feature in Funtime and created the 'leaves' of the tree from a circle and I made the dirt path to the dog house from a rectangle. I had purchased a fall tree file that did not come with a canopy of leaves just single leaves, she does have several files that have trees with a full canopy just an FYI.

All in quiet in the house so I think little man may have crashed for the night. I think I will crash too, the baby will be up early.

a few more layouts

Well my 3 year old ate his supper hopped down from his chair while we were still eating supper to go hang out in the living room. When we went to check on him he was napping on the couch. A nap at 6 pm is never good. He's still running laps around the house but I'm too tired to play with paper so I thought I would upload the layouts I've finished in the last few days. Have to say I really enjoy having the craft room adjacet to the living room.

All the paper is from my stash. The Army will move a certain amount of household goods weight for free. I taught preschool before kids and kept all my files/ lesson plan stuff mix that in with scrapbooking and you have a recipe for a weight problem. After looking at the boxes of paper we moved my husband placed a paper ban on me. The amount of paper coming into the house has to equal the amount of paper going out of the house. I will be selling this layout so I have earned myself 6 sheets of paper hehe. (we moved well over 150 lbs of scrapbooking paper so I don't think I'll be cashing in my 6 sheets anytime soon- can we say horder)
The cutting files are from Little Scraps of Heaven.

3-D haunted house

Well I hope this is the start of more blog posts. We recently moved, one requirement for this house is that my craft area is on the same level as the family room. I even managed to get my craft are in the same area as the living room. We still have a TON of boxes that need to be unpacked but the kitchen is unpacked, the bedrooms are unpacked and my craft room is mostly unpacked. So we can eat, sleep, wear clothes and most importantly I can create.
Little Scraps of Heaven was having a challenge to create something Halloween using their cutter files. I finally settled on creating a 3-D scene. Half way through I decided I was insane, the file is a 2-D file intended for your scrapbook pages. I finally decided that may house was not going to be perfectly square and that would just have to be ok.
I used the files Haunted House and Haunted Graveyard. An LED flameless candle fits inside the house. My almost 3 year old is in love with the house.
