This is the second part of the project I started last week. In my second Smash Book page, I used the "Mitten Shaker Card" and sentiment and snowflakes from "Fun with Frosty" printable file. Both provided by our sponsor The Cutting Cafe. The girl in the picture is, again, my daughter Sofi, freezing at Niagara Falls, with huge mittens to protect her hands.


This is the picture of both pages set in my Smash Book.


For this week I decided to recycle a gift bag. For this I used the file Snowman Shaker Card, from The Cutting Cafe, and now I have a new gift bag for christmas presents.


To decorate my box I used Snowman Shaker from The Cutting Cafe.





KEMLY.



For this week I made a card with the Snowman from Fun with Frosty the snowman printable stamp set from our sponsor The Cutting Cafe. 
 



I used the colour palette in my project.  Nice day!


 I used the Mitten Shaker card from The Cutting Cafe, and Christmas Colored Banners to make the mitten background, and some snowflakes from Fun with Frosty the Snowman to pattern the mitten outline.
I chose backing papers to fit the colour theme, they were the closest I could get to it.
The mitten is tucked into a pocket on the card.....


....so that it can be taken out to hang on the tree!

Inside the card.



See the Christmas banners - I used the coloured versions.


I used the offcut from the centre of the mitten outline to decorate the inside of the mitten ornament.

Here it is hanging up, I don't have my tree up yet to show you on a tree.

Happy Christmas everyone!

Anna used the colour combo, and said " I finally decided to make a vintage card, hope that it's ok? The color combo is really awesome, I would probably never use it that way if it wouldn't be for this challenge LOL But it looks really good!" 
Anna, your card is awesome too!

We want to welcome Myriam to our Design Team.

I made a gift bag with Mitten Shaker card from our sponsor The Cutting Cafe!









This is a two parts project. This is the first and it is page for my Nostalgia Smash Book made with the funny Snowman Shaker Card provided by our sponsor. The sentiment and the snowflakes are from the file Fun with Frosty, also provided by The Cutting Cafe. The girl in the picture is my daughter Sofi, having fun in the snow. Next week you will see this project complete.

I used the Snowman Shaker card set in PDF format, and cut it out by hand, badly as you can see. I also used Fun with Frosty the Snowman to put the sentiment in his tummy.






Hi everyone! Today for my project I used Mitten Shaker.  From our sponsor The Cutting Cafe.


I made a card and ornament tree with palette colours to this challenge.

Challenge #24 Going Around In Quirky Circles.-Reminder

Hi quirky guys, Lyn here, it's reminder time!  Our challenge is nice and easy, just in case you're busy with Christmas shopping...It's Going Around in Circles, (which I'm sure many of you are! I know I am!)
 
 Our Fabulous Sponsor is Crackerbox Palace and the team have used the Bird House, Bird and the Flowers, they supplied us with. So, it's now up to you! We want to see circles! As many or as few as you like. Big ones, little ones, scalloped ones, fancy ones, it's up to you!! Just think Circles! Here's some inspiration from the Design Team! A very clever card from....

Myriam.
I used the bird house digi provided by our sponsor Cracker Box Palace and coloured it with Spectrum Noir.
 




I used Spectrum Noir for coloring the stamp!!



To decor my butterflies circle card, I used the house digi provided by our sponsor Cracker Box Palace and coloured it with Spectrum Noir pens and glitter pen for the swirls.

Cazzy
This is a cheating a little, I had the card with the tissue box on it already, I have added the stamped sentiment and bugs, all die cut in circles. Then I doodled with a paper white pen, one corner got a little messed up, and was not correctable, but hey it will have to do!
This is the first card, I hope to add a second soon. The bugs are here, and the tissue box here. Of course you can choose to have them as digi images for just $3 by contacting Crackerbox, or winning them!

Inside the card, I used Get Well Soon, and don't let anyone tell you soup will help, which I put into a circle to keep in the theme!

Here are a couple of the cute bird images I mentioned last week, I think this is too funny, that upside down bird looks like it is saying - what happened? The result is the hatching egg that landed on the floor haha!
Sentiment is from a Kars set.


 I love this snowy Winter Cottage stamp, and when I cut it out with a scalloped circle a shaker card came to mind, and this is how it turned out.
I added a piece of tinsel ribbon (from Crafty Ribbons) so that it could be hung as a bauble or picture.

Shaken up! More details and photos on my blog.








Hi everyone!!  In this project I used the digi Bird and flowers also I used the digi The branch. I made is a slide card. My project is coloured with acualerables pencils and Distress Inks.
