Seashore photo frame

This week's challenge is anything goes.  I created a photo frame using this fabulous image.
I used my cameo to cut out the frame and create the backing for it.
 The easel is a file from the SIL store.
 I used my goosebumps spray to cover the frame then sprinkled some crystal glitter all around.

Christmas in July!!

Our release this month is all Christmas! So you know how excited I am for this.  There are so many cute images I just went a little bit crazy with my projects.
Be sure to head over to the Facebook page for the event
This first card is a Santa on an action wobble, I love that he's holding his reindeer.

 For the inside I used this cute piece from my DCWV Christmas stack.

This card looks pretty normal right?

tada!!  It's a twisted easel.  I used a cute tag with gifts on it for the inside and added real buttons to hold the card open.

 This one is pretty straight forward.  I used my glitter gel pen, a metallic gold pen, some gems and crystal effects.  I love my bling!

This is another pretty simple one, I used one of my spellbinder die cuts for the frame shape.
 For the fur on their outfits I used some chunky embossing powder and my glue, I left it unmelted so it has great texture.

 This one is my favorite!  I used the colors in the paper for her outfit inspiration. She's mounted on foam tape.
 I used the chunky embossing powder here too but I melted it from the back side.  Reminds me of snow flurries.

And, last but not least I made a simple scrapbook page.
I used the pre colored digi's for this one and cut some circles from glitter paper for my embellishments.

 I added some glitter gel pen accents and black gel pen for shine.

Cozy owl

Today I'm sharing this little guy.  I attempted to color him up some cozy onsie pajamas.  
I added extra lines to his belly hoping for a stitched look.

Let's crop

 This is an image from Simply Betty.  I love her images, she makes me work out of my comfort zone.
The card base is from the SIL store.  I used my gorgeous 3 Girl Jam ribbons.

Christmas ornament

 So, this is probably going to ruin a gift but I couldn't resist this idea!  My sister is a big carousel horse fan.  She has a large collection of figurines and even a large one my parents made for her.  So when I came across this image in the store I knew exactly what I was going to do.
I used my Cameo to cut out the horse and 2 pieces of matching chip board.  
I then pulled out my big shot (gasp, I had to dust her off a bit, lol) and used a die set I've had for ages, not even sure who made it.
I cut 2 pieces of chip board for the biggest piece along with 2 pieces of paper, the next layer is another chip board and paper piece, then just a piece of paper then another chipboard and paper piece for the smallest layer.
 I used my colored pencils and gamsol to blend.  I used a cream color for the shading on the horse and left most of her white of the paper.
I added lots of gems and pearls.  I love her! Very proud of my coloring on this one.
 This is the back, I love that paper stack, I've had it for several years and will be sad when it's gone.  There are such cute pieces in it.  This one was perfect for the back. I glued the string between the 2 base chipboard pieces to it's very secure.
Here's a little peak at the thickness.  It's a pretty sturdy piece.  It should hold up for a while.

This is the horse my parents decorated for my sister.  Isn't it amazing?  She's so lucky :)

I'll be adding this to the 12 month link up over at

Imagine That monthly challenge

 Cute and simple.  I used the pre colored image and the digital papers to create my mats.
I used foam dots to raise up the candy dish and the little gingy sentiment.

Here's the link if you want to get in on the fun

And I'll be adding this to the 12 month of Christmas link up as well

Let's get together

Sweet and simple right?  I used my glitter gel pen to draw swirls all over the back ground and kept it simple by just adding a few gems.
Here's your action shot of the wobble.

Isn't this a fun set?  Be sure to keep an eye out for more cards with this one.
