Hey everyone!
This is my final DT project with My Besties Meet at the Scrappers Corner

Beginning next month I will become the DT Coordinator at
We would love for you to come and visit us and see all
the fun changes and projects we will have for you
beginning in the new year.

I used distress markers for the first time on this image.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Markers in
Stormy Sky
Picked Raspberry
Ripe Persimmon
Forest Moss
Mowed Lawn
and a mini Distress Ink in Festive Berries

I used a Spellbinders die to cut her out and then mounted it on another
Spellbinders die panel from Devine Elegence A2 card creator.

I added some gems with the paper flowers that I added glitter to for some
sparkle.  I just took a black ribbon and strung the gems onto and tied a knot to hold them on.

Pink Christmas Sparkle Friendship Pocket Letter

Hey everyone!  I am excited to share with you today a 
NEW pocket letter from Sherri Baldy My Besties.

I am also excited as this is my first attempt at PL's.
I find them intriguing and oh so fun.

I still have alot to learn with creating this little works of art, but am rather happy
with the way this one has been born.

For this row, I added Joy Craft Heart Border and cut it to just have two of the hearts.
I gave my pink tree some bling of it own with pink rhinestones and add
some Frantage embossing enamel in shabby white.
My cute little girl I made into a tag and cut her face out with a 1" punch and topped onto another matching paper.

For the second row I added a Darice die to my deer paper and also cut the snowflake out
with a 1" punch.
I used bubble gum pink ink to ink the edges on my center girl and also raised her with a 1.5" punch.
I added a snowflake onto the center of my paper in the first pocket.

For the bottom row, I wanted to show off some of the pocket papers.
The first pocket you have the cute paper in this pocket letter kit.
The middle pocket has a very wonderful designed paper that I stamped with the ornaments at top
and merry & bright  towards the bottom.  I just added glitter after stamping and love the shimmer.
The last pocket I added a lace rosette and topped with some die cut leaves from
Spellbinders foliage dies and then added a white rose.

I hope you have enjoyed this project.

the seasons.  Yet another one is upon us.  Where does the time go!

a sentiment or even a poem.  These are Sherri Baldy My Besties

I have used the circle open center frame twice in this project.
I added the first one directly around my window and for the second one
I used foam dots to mount the second slightly raised.

There are many more SVGs to create with.  Have a peek at them all HERE.

I also have use Sherri Baldy Designer Paper in Spring Peach

These papers are lovely to work with and offer a wonderful
selection to coordinate any project with.

Tuesday Color Challenge at the Outlawz

Hey everyone!  It is time for another fun filled week with the
Color Challenge for the Outlawz

Color Challenge is so excited to have as our sponsor for the month of

We have sadly learnt that Sweet Pea Stamps will cease to trade on November 25th so our winner will get 4 of the digis we have used!

This week it is my turn to host the challenge and I have chosen some fall colors  with
the use of a punch or punches also on your project.

The image I used will be available for this months digis to pick from.

I misplaced my leaf punch and went with the small flower on top 
of my twine as my punch.  And because I couldn't locate that darn
punch, I decided to add my leaf stamp onto the background by
embossing with holographic embossing powder

I colored the image with prismacolor pencils.

We would love for you to join us over at the Tuesday Color Challenge.
If you aren't already a member, just request to join and you can join us.
Simple as that.  Come check out all our challenges.

Give Thanks

Hey Everyone!!!  The colder weather has begun and
Thanksgiving is right around the corner.

Today I have for you a little note card with SVGs from

The SVGs I used for this is the pumpkin border set and the 

I started with a 4.25" x 5.5" card base.

I matted my sentiment onto Recollections Tomato cardstock
and  stamped leaves with embossing ink and used  a
holographic embossing powder.  It adds the leaves in a very
subtle way and leaves a very nice effect.
I took the layer scalloped border and sized to match my mat along with
the pumpkin border and cut with my Cricut Explore.
I used the Recollections coordinating paper pack Tomato for the scallops.
The pumpkins are cut from DCWV Lace & Line Stack pad.

There are many more wonderful SVGs available at

Winter Woodland Boy

Hey everyone!  Today I have for you a little boy that just called out for
the woodland theme.  It is transitioning into colder weather here and
this is how I see him.

I am using a Sherri Baldy My Besties boy digi.
This is img705.

How did I put it all together.

I started with 6 x 6 card base and cut my first mat at 5.75" and topped with
a slightly smaller christmas patterned paper.  The next mat size is 4.5" topped
with another christmas patterned paper cut slightly smaller.
I added a few spruce trees onto the first layer and turned them in various
directions until I came up with a placement that I liked.  I embossed all the spruce
trees with a swiss dots embossing folder and used
 Frantage embossing enamel in Shabby White.
I embossed white cardstock with Tim Holtz border embossing folder of icicles and
cut out and placed at the top of the first layer.
I took my second layer and placed it in a position I liked to still show
some of the spruces.
I placed my boy down with foam dots.
I placed another spruce tree with foam dots over the second layer and one of the
spruce trees.
I then took my acorn and leaf clusters and added them.  They are from Spellbinders.

The little deer is a SVG from Sherri Baldy My Besties.  These SVGs are easily
done and work with all die cuts.

I just used the one deer.
Check out the SVGs available HERE

I stamped my sentiment and used a oval Spellbinders die to cut out.

His little jacket I colored to resemble my sons Carhart coat and his
pants as bluejeans.  Just what I would picture a boy wearing.
I took a prismacolor grey pencil in 50% and 30% to make his
trim look like fur.

Thank you for visiting!!

Monthly Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz

It's November!! A new month and a brand new Progressive challenge at the Outlawz.

Our image this month is so generously provided by SLS Lines. And we thank them for the awesome image. 

The image is Voodoo King.

This one was a challenge for me.  It isn't in my norm, and sometimes getting outside
your norm opens your mind to other ideas and brings a new element that
you may not of used before.  I colored him with copics and fussy cut to put
in front of my background.
