It's not a card... it's not a's a cake?!?

Today I have something a little different for you lol... Sometimes I make cakes... and sometimes it is really fun to combine cake making with paper crafting.  I've really had fun playing with this adorable Woodland Critter stamp set from CTMH. So, when I offered to make a cake for a baby shower, it didn't take long to think of what to do:)

Until we scrap (or eat cake?) again:)|

Some special cards

I recently had some special birthdays to celebrate, and I had a lot of fun creating some very different cards.  

I wanted this card to have a touch of elegance and sophistication... so I pulled out one of the oldest stamp sets in my collection from the CTMH Just Because Card Kit  Layers of gold dot vellum from Stampin' Up!, gold and white twine, and gold embossing, with a little shimmer from the CTMH Shimmer Brush polished it off.  The lovely ladies were coloured with my Shinhan  Touch Twin markers. 

Until we scrap again:)

December Team Brae-er Blog Hop

Welcome to December's Team Brae-er Blog Hop!  If you have come from Sheena Brooks, you are on the right track.

I am so excited about this hop, because it features my very favourite paper pack in the whole Holiday Expressions catalogue - Oh Deer!!  I love the colours and patterns in this paper pack, and can't wait to use it for winter layouts, Christmas cards, and even my recent vacation in Jasper National Park.  I grew up among birch and pine trees, so these patterns feel like home to me:)

Here is what is featured in the Oh Deer paper and complements.  If you love it - don't hesitate to head to my website to order it, because it is only available while supplies last until December 31st.

Workshop Your Way Kit

Now for two projects that we made in this month's club meeting:

I absolutely love the cute Snow Shadows and Jingle all the Way stamp sets, and wanted to make some special projects to feature them.  Here is a card using Oh Deer! paper and Snow Shadows and Jingle All the Way stamp sets. I added a bit of burlap ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon set. Of course, I had to add a strip of Sea Glass Glitter paper too:) The bell and sentiment are embossed in silver.

And then a simple layout, using a pattern from the Make it From Your Heart Volume 1 Pattern Book.

The lovely deer and tree scene is made from the Woodland Wishes Thin Cuts Bundle. My favorite part of making this layout was using all the patterns that I especially loved from the paper packet, including those lovely little stars on the zip strip - then stamping lots of pretty white stars in White Daisy Pigment ink and swiping lots of the ink around to create a snowy effect.  I think the white stamping on the Kraft cardstock is just so lovely. 

Alright:) I hope you got some fun new ideas from my blog.  Hop on over to Michelle Hughes for even more inspiration!

Until we scrap again,

I always like a happy little bird

This Christmas card was made by pulling out a favourite old stamp set - Paper Bird from CTMH. 

I really liked the natural feel of the Wood Slat Embossing folder paired with the Perfectly Pine stamp set... and every branch is better with a bird on it... so here we go... Merry Christmas!!

Until we scrap again :)
