Black Cat Challenge

Halloween week continues here at SCS, and today, I have a cute little card to share with you!

Black-cat-front

 

This little cute duo is a new stamp from Tiddy Inks called Couple of Fall Cuties. I thought it would be the prefect image to use for this week’s challenge which is called “Black Cat”  If you haven;t been over to the Tiddly Inks blog today, you really need to check out all the great creations by the design team for this challenge, especially if “cute Halloween” is your “thing” (it is definitely mine).

I coloured up these cuties with Copics, and while my kitty did turn out more grey than black, let’s just say that she looks good for her age!  The paper is from Doodlebug, and that great ribbon is from May Arts.  Oh, and as has become my tradition, the sentiment was hand lettered.

I hope you will consider joining us for the challenge!  While Black Cat would probably work for a lot of Halloween projects, there are so many cute cat images over in the store that would work for any theme!  We always love seeing you work so link up!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Mother’s Love

Elephant-full

Welcome back to day THREE of our DECEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are sharing a LOVELY new set by artist Thais Narciso! It is called…….A MOTHER’S LOVE!

Elephant-closeupToday, I decided to work with this darling image of a baby elephant cuddled up in the trunk of his momma or dad!  Wouldn’t this make the cutest Valentine’s card, or be perfect for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day?  I also used paper and twine from this month’s Krafty Kardmaking kit, featuring paper from Doodlebug’s Day to Day collection.  Although the colours are not really traditional, I think it makes a super colourful and happy card!

Once Upon a Time…

…there was a happy little crafter who loved to colour stamps.  And she lived happily ever after, now that there are fun new fairy tale themed stamps from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! ;)

Alice-full

Welcome back to day two of our DECEMBER Kraftin’ Kimmie Peeks!!! Today we are excited to share TWO new sets by artist Cheryl Alger with a fabulous theme… FAIRYTALES!!! We are sharing samples today featuring…….ONCE UPON A TIME 1 and ONCE UPON A TIME 2!

Today, I decided to use Alice together with some of the papers you can find in the December Krafty Kardmaking Kit featuring paper from Doodlebug’s Day to Day collection.  I think this stamp is darling – as an apology card for being late for something, for an invitation to a party (time to party?), or even a sympathy card for someone who has a lot on their plate (need a break?).  And while Alice herself is totally cute, the White rabbit down in the corner is a total darling too!  I had some fun with the watch too – covering it in glossy accents once I finished colouring it for a bit of emphasis and shine!

Getting caught up…

It seems that as the months pass, I not only look in wonder as my kids grow up so fast, but I also wonder how it possible to be this far behind in my scrapbooking when the girls as still so little!  :)   So, this month, I am at least going to try to get caught up with Christmas layouts – starting today!

Paper-Princess-FullThese were some pictures of my youngest two years ago!  She was so intent on ripping every piece of wrapping paper into the smallest bits she could.  Even with everything else going on, she was totally focused on this task!  And she was good at it too!

This 12×12 layout was one I created with Doodlebug‘s Home for the Holidays collection.  You know I love Doodlebug – the bold, bright colours and clean, crisp patterns are so easy to work with.  All the shapes were either cut with a paper cutter or with my trusty scissors.  There are a lot of fun shapes to fussy cut in the paper line, so I was in heaven as I cut out those snowflakes.  And the holly at the top was just drawn freehand and cut out –  with a few super cute Doodlebug Mini Pearls for a fun pop!

Oh, and it really wouldn’t be a finished ScrappyCanuck layout without a little hidden something!  :) Take a look:

Paper-Princess-openOne of the photos lifts up to reveal some hidden journaling!  I love this technique because it is easy to create (if you ca fold a card, you can handle this too), and it leave a little something hidden for the girls to find when they get older – something for their eyes only (well, and all of yours! ;))

Well, that’sit for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
