SOUS project

Is it Friday again?!!  Well, here I am with my DT project for SOUS to use to a die cut "gifts".  So, without further ado . . . here's my interpretation.

I not only used die cut gifts on my LO, but I also used ornaments as well.  Both on from CC Winter Frolic.  I scraplifted this LO from my scrapbook pages' board on Pinterest.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are inspired too by the many wonderful projects of the die cut team over at SOUS!!

Really had a hard time getting a good solid picture of this LO.  This is actually my second attempt.

SOUS Project: Die Cut Owls

Hello friends!! Here we are with another project for SOUS.  This Friday our project was to include a die cut owl.

Lately my brain has been on overload and I simply could not come up with a layout that included owls.  So I tried a different approach and made Christmas tags with these cute snow owls from TreasureBoxDesigns.

Sweet and simple this week I know . . . but hopefully inspiring all the same. Thanks for stopping by!!

P.S. I REALLY need to get a set up made for taking pictures of my crafty projects.

Border Collie

A repeat patron of mine asked for a "Heal" card with a border collie.  So, I went digging . . . deep.  I did end up using a Treasure Box Designs file I already had.  Instead of making the dog a various shade of brown, I made him black and white and voila!!

I had two days to make this card.  Now, that's not unusual in itself except the request came on a Tuesday.  *chuckles* I almost never scrap or do anything crafty during the week.

The feedback from my patron was the card was well received by everyone who signed it and by the recipient (none of whom I know).

Thanks for stopping by!!

Tag Swap

For November, I signed up for a tag swap at Treasure Box Designs.  I am super excited about seeing what other crafters come up with and how they use their talents with paper piecing.  The rules are three tags 3x4 each and of course use TBD files.

Here are mine!! I am so pleased with how these turned out!!  I am also just a little bit sad to have to let them go . . . but that's just inspiration to make more right?

SOUS DieCut Challenge

Hey there Peeps!! The SOUS diecut challenge for this week is to use the words Fall or Autumn on your project.  

So for myself, I had two things I really wanted to use.  This adorable bear and title from Treasure Box Designs AND a photo of my son and husband at our first traditional outing to local Huber's Farm.

I used a sketch from a pin on Pinterest.

I'm having a LOT of fun trying to learn how to make "eyes".  I could have gone all out - you know - with eyelashes and more extreme shading but I wanted to stick with a more boyish looking bear.

Thanks for stopping by!!!  What are you gonna make?

A closer look at the shading and placement of the die cut bear.
