Making Memories Guest Designer

Happy Wednesday my crafty friends!  I hope everyone has been busy with their holiday crafting and spending time with family and friends.

Just a quick share today - Over at the Making Memories blog, I was their guest designer for the day.

I have always loved Making Memories products and I was so excited when they contacted me a couple of months ago about this GDT opportunity.

I pulled out (from my stash) some of their lovely 'Noel' collection and created these 2 layouts.

Titled 'Jolly Jolly'

The next one is titled 'All that glitters'

I hope the rest of your week is awesome!  Buh bye for now!!

2 More LBD layouts.....

Happy Sunday everyone!  For those in the U.S., I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and you were able to share it with friends and family.

Today, I thought I'd share 2 more layouts from the November Little Black Dress kit.  I think this kit was one of my all-time fave LBD kits.

Titled "Poker Face"
This is a picture of my little baby Flikka.  The picture was actually a printer was running out of ink, but I kinda liked the effect, so I kept it. 

and LOTS of close-ups.  :)

Titled "The Red Jacket"

This is a picture of ME (yes, me), when I was about 4.  Such a silly little girl.  :)

and some close-ups.

That's all for today!  I hope you have a wonderfully crafty week!

Stuck?! Nov 15th Sketch Challenge

Happy Snowy Saturday!!

Today, just a quick share (why break my week long share pattern?)  :)

I had some spare time, so I thought I'd participate in the Nov 15th Stuck?! Sketch Challenge.  It was an awesome sketch, check it out!
As you can see, I flipped the sketch upside down for my layout.  Here is my take.

If you have time, stop by tomorrow, I'll be sharing some fun snowman projects!  Have a fantastic Saturday!

Ready for another day of shares??

Happy Friday!  I am sooo glad it is finally here.  My dad is coming tomorrow for Thanksgiving and I am so excited!  :)

So are you ready for another share?

Here goes....
I created this project using the add-on kit from The Paper Bakery, plus some of my own goodies from my stash. (TH tray and paint)

I started with a Tim Holtz Configuration Tray (can you say LOVE?) and painted it off white.  After that was dry, I brushed a coat of crackle paint on for a vintage effect.  Next, I liberally coated the entire piece with a Peeled Paint Distress Stain.  If you haven't tried these out yet, they are fab-u-lous!

After the entire tray was dry, I started fussy cutting the fun little embellishments for each section.  I used the Echo Park 'Holly Jolly' sticker sheet (from the kit) for this part.  To make the sticker more 'durable' and easier to stand up, I stuck them to a piece of white cardstock before I cut them out. 

I used EK Success Mega Dots to get the depth in each little box.  (these are awesome BTW - I must get more)  I added some Stickles to several pieces and glued it all in place.  I wrapped the ribbon from the kit around the entire tray and Viola!  You have a cute Holiday decoration.

here's the finished tray!

Also, did you know the Paper Bakery is having a Design Team Call (for Jan-June2012).  All of the details are HERE.  You should really check it out!

I still have one more day of shares - so come back tomorrow for two more projects I created using some bits and pieces of the Paper Bakery kit!  Have a great one!
