Watercolor Winter

 
Each catalog has some great Simply Created kits and they seem to get better and better every time!  This one is in the Holiday Catalog and is called Watercolor Winter Simply Created Kit.  This is just one of the cards I put together with it (the kit makes 20 and you will have leftover pieces!)

 
I used the paintbrush, water and Soft Suede ink to watercolor the sled and letters.  For the snowflake, I used the template in the kit and a inked up sponge. 

 
I will share some more creations from the kit in the next few days - don't miss out on getting one for yourself before the Holiday Catalog disappears!
 
Supplies:
Soft Suede, Basic Gray ink

Happy Happy!

 
Another sneak peek for you today from the Occasions Catalog, I had to make a birthday card to share with you today since my middle child is turning 11! 
 
 
Happy Birthday Wyatt! 

 
I made a one layer card and layered some of the stamps in the set (it is photopolymer and easy to layer the images!!).  There are sentiments for birthday, baby, graduation, wedding and celebrating in this set so it is very versatile as well as fun!
 
Supplies:
Celebrate Today
Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar ink
Whisper White card stock

The first sneak peek I will share with you is the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die.  it makes the most adorable little bag that measures 3 11/16" x 5 1/4" and has coordinating accessory dies (the strip with the holes in it and the "for you" along with several others).

 
The designer series paper I chose for this one is called Birthday Bash specialty paper.

O Holy Night

 
I have worked with a couple of church youth groups making cards for shut ins, etc. in the last couple weeks and I have used this stamp set each time (although neither group made this one).  It is from last year, but I really like the image and wanted to incorporate it this year again.

 
The designer series papers I chose to pair are All is Calm and Flowerpot...using Lost Lagoon and Pear Pizzazz card stock and inks along with them.

 
Don't forget to check out the new Weekly Deals that come out today!

Middle School

 
Well, I am back and hopefully almost over this icky cough!  While at a retreat a few weeks ago I made a pretty big dent in my scrapbooking "to do" picture pile.  What helped with that a lot was some premade pages that I had ready to add pictures to (extras from my stamp clubs).  This one uses the Point and Click Project Life stamp set along with the Cards and Labels framelits and Happiness Is collection.

 
I love how the stickers make for quick and easy titles!

 
Supplies:
Project Life Happiness Is
Project Life Cards and Labels framelits
Project Life point and click stamp set
Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz ink
Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay card stock

Don't forget to check out the year end closeouts, there are still some great deals to be had by all! 

It might be quiet around here for a few days, I caught a nasty bug that has been hanging on for a couple weeks and am still trying to get back into the things.  Don't worry, I will be back with projects again before long!
