SOUS Die Cut Challenge: Snowflake

Stuck On U Sketches

Hello Peeps! Welcome to my blog! Today I would like to share with you SOUS die cut challenge - the snowflake!! We can make any project we like, just have to use a die cut snowflake on it.

Well, here's mine! The entire card is a die cut made from a SVGCUTS file.  Their cards are fun and easy to make!!

The funny thing about this card is that it is all made from paper my sister gave up to me a few years ago. Every now and then I find a great use for it!

I hope I have inspired you in some way. Hop on over to SOUS, if you haven't done so already, for more inspiration from our fabulous die cut team!! We also want to see your snowflake projects as well!!

It's almost Christmas!! Are you excited yet? I know I am! I recently spent a relaxing Saturday playing with paper and making cards. I scrolled thru my stash of "svg" files and came across the Merry & Bright Collection by

Except for the paper, I followed the site pretty closely in the making of this card. I just love how the poinsettia turned out, don't you!?

In a couple days I'll be showing you another card from that very same collection. I'm even more thrilled with that one so come back soon!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

wrapped with LOVE!

My sister LOVES gingerbread men!!

For this year, we decided to make something for each other instead of buying gifts for one another.  So,  I made her tags to put on gifts. LOL!!

The stamps are from My Craft Spot. The PP are from various 6x6 christmas paper.

P.S. I found tags difficult to photograph. Just couldn't figure out how to make them look right.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

This gingerbread is a die cut from My Scrap Chick.
I did end up making the eyes much larger.

This year my sister and I decided to make gifts for each other instead of buying gifts. So, I made her gift tags! LOL (ah the irony)

The bears are Treasure Box Designs die cuts. I actually made these bears last year. I really LOVE making die cuts almost more than using them on a project.

The stamps are from My Craft Spot.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Follow the Day . . .

. . . and Reach for the Sun!

Hello! Today I am showing you my fourth page featuring our exchange student, Tobias. Once I settled down and decided on the sketch and PP, this LO came together incredibly fast!

The photo of our student was taken September 7th, only a month after Tobias joined our family. This was our first "outing" taking pictures together.  It turns out he and I have a mutual love of photography with very different shooting styles.

I followed this sketch off of Pinterest. The title is the name of a song I love by Polyphonic Spree.

I used Bo Bunny paper mostly from the Weekend Market line.

On a side note, I think I'm going to really enjoy making "teenage boy" layouts. They are challenging and I get to bring out my more grungy style in scrapbooking which took a back burner the last couple years. Of course, I'm not giving up die cuts anytime soon but this LO was definitely fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I'm a junkie for Treasure Box Designs bear and birdie die cuts! I felt a huge need to upgrade my collection of gift tags for this year.

Also, I have made a special "something" for my sister too, but I'll post those later.

Anyway, I will have several posts this month featuring Christmas gift tags!

Thank you!

For the past two or three years, a special client at my work place has provided a holiday lunch for our staff members. I personally feel that only a hand made card will do for saying thank you to such a wonderful client and her furry family.

I loosely followed a sketch by MojoMonday.

The reindeer is a "bobble head" from Treasure Box Designs.
