Holiday Wishes with Gingerbread Kisses

The Holidays are coming and baking season
for me will be in full swing.

Thinking of baking and all the yummies, today I would
like to share with you the new Gingerbread Papers Mega Kit.

Complete with over 30 adorable papers to create with this season.

I am using a Sherri Baldy My Besties image with these papers.

I carried some more papers to the inside to finish it off.

SURPRISE!!!  It is a panel pop out for more fun.

I colored img815 for the front and scanned it to make smaller 
printable for the inside.

I found this card on pinterest with many different tutorials but
used this one for my finished card
Obsessedwithscrappin has a nice video and Cricut design space file
also with this video.

All My Ghoulfriends: 3 Tiered Card with tutorial

Hello Everyone!
Today goes out to all my Ghoulfriends!!!!

This time of year we have ghouls, gourds, pumpkins
and cute little witches everywhere.

Halloween to me is all about the fun of colors and
the creativity you can come up with.

I have a triple tier card for you that has a
Sherri Baldy My Besties digi as my cute little
pumpkin sitter.

The image is img734

As you pull the top tab, the layers reveal all inside
for a fun little surprise.

This was made for a friend in mind, so the sentiment had to
be something she would enjoy and have a good laugh at.

So how did I make this little gem.

Let's start with the supplies.

You will need cardstock in the color of your choice for the base.

Cut your cardstock into
1-6"x 12"
1-5"x 11 1/4"
1- 3 1/2" x 4  1/2"

save your scraps as we will be using a piece of it as well.

Score the  6" x 12" with the 12" side at the top at 4" and 8"

Score the 5" x 11 1/4" with the 11 1/4" side at the top at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2"

On the pieces that are scored, you need to add some slits to the
right scored panel on both pieces.
Cut slits 1" in from the score line and another 1" from the outside edge.
I cut my slits 1/2"in from top and bottom.

These slits let your cards slide up and down inside the card.

You need to start with your  3 1/2" x 4  1/2" piece and
your 5"x 11 1/4"

Remember the little scraps I mentioned.  This is where we 
make a strip to weave into the slit.
Follow the picture.

Add tape or glue to each side of the strip.  This is where you will attach 
the next piece.

Take your 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece and lay it on top so the top edges
are flush.

We are going to fold the right side in first and then the left over the top.

Add glue or tape down the edges.  My folder and scissors are placed
to show you the edges I did.

Your first tier is finished

Do the same thing to your next piece with adding your strip and placing
the first complete tier onto it.

Make sure your top edges are even.  You may need to adjust things
just a bit.

Fold like you did for the first tier and glue or tape your edges and you 
have completed the tiers

Decorate and add a tag at the top.  You may
 want to add your 
papers first before putting all together.

You can find many more adorable ideas
and projects over at

for this month.

Cherish Every Moment Criss Cross

Hello everyone!  Today I have for you a sweet image from the past.

INSTANT DOWNLOAD Digi Stamps Lil Ragamuffin Justina & Frankie By Sherri Baldy Big Eye Art

I have done a criss cross design to tuck this cutie into and
also added a additional feature of another pull out for
a message to be added to.
I added the extra pull out behind her.

My cardbase measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 without any embellishments
or die cuts.

I have used the Homespun Colorbok paper pad 
for my designer papers for this.

For the sentiment I used Crafters Companion Die'sire metal die
and mounted it on a Spellbinders die from
Devine Eleoquence die set.

For the scroll at the top, I double cut the
Anna Griffin Flourish Scroll and attached to the base before
adding the inside decorative paper.

For the pull out I added a punched edge with a Martha Stewart
edge punch .
I added some flowers to make a small bouquet.  I used
small sweetheart flowers from Wild Orchards
and one Sherri Baldy
Bloomin Bestie in Pink Daisy to make a focal point in the bouquet.
I love these flowers.

I have colored Justina and Frankie with copics

Hat and shoes and Frankie:  E40, 41 and 43
Skin:  E50,51,53,33
Hair: Y00, 02, 18 and 21
Dress: RV00, 02, 10, 13 and 17

I hope you have enjoyed todays little creation.

what all is new!!!

Welcome to the town of Troll-ville.

Hey everyone!  Trolls have been running around and getting
into all sorts of mischief.  These little cuties are just waiting
to come and join you in all your crafting ideas.

Today I would like to share with you a mini album
that has been created around these little sweeties
by using the Troll Mega Kit that is available

I have used elements from the Kit to make all the embellies
throughout.   I have used the mushroom and frames along with papers
to decorate the front.


I took the mushroom and made some shrinkydink charms to adorn
the closure for this album

I also colored another troll image and made a charm with her as well.
The image I used is scan0042

On the inside I have used various papers and other elements
to create pockets and tag holders

For this one, I used a flower to hold a tag I made from another
paper included in the Kit.

I used a flower element and bracket elements to hold small tags or
photo mats.

Here I cut one of the tags in half to create a pocket to hold
a mushroom I am using as a tag.

Here are some other pages and just how I decorated them.


Here is a small preview of what all is in the Kit.

Come and check out all the wonderful creations that are
being made with all of the Trolls over on
on facebook.  We would love to see all your Besties creations.

life and creativity.

Today I am using a Sherri Baldy My Besties image,
for my inspirational creation for 
My Besties International October Challenge
