Meeting Santa w/ NAS

 Hello! I have a fun Christmas layout using this awesome sketch from Nuts About sketches:

Here is my layout using the Christmas Time line by Carta Bella that I got as my Dec kit from Memorable Seasons.

I stayed pretty close to the sketch and just had fun mixing the different patterned papers.

I used bling for the dots on the sketch.

Then added in this fun sticker snowflake in place of one of the circles. With a little bit of bling on it, it makes it sparkle.

I hope your enjoying the holidays!

Merry Christmas card w/ Carta Bella

 On the Memorable Seasons forum this month we are having food related challenges. I came up with a Keepin' it simple appetizer you can check it out here.

For the challenge I made this card:

I used Carta Bella's Christmas Time line and just let the paper do the work for me.

A bit of ribbon, a sentiment, some bling and some inking and it's ready to go.
Thanks for stopping by!

Bows Tutorial w/ Moxxie

I have a fun little tutorial today.
I used the super cute Happy Pawlidays line from Moxxie.
(Enter to WIN it Here.)

to make these 2 bows:

I started with 16- 1/2inch strips of pp
4- 10 inches long
3- 9 inches
3- 8 inches
3- 7 inches
3- 6 inches
& 1 strip 3 inches long and 3/4 inches wide

Then take one of the longest strips, I want the stripes to show, so I turn it over and take one end to fold into the middle like this and glue it:

Then you take the other end and fold it into the middle for a figure 8, I glued all of mine but you could use staples:

After you have all of your strips (except the 3/4 inch one) glued you start layering them and gluing the middles together:

My bow got really full before I used all of the strips, so I just started another one. To finish you take the 3/4 inch strip, glue it into a circle and then add it to the center. For the smaller bow I just cut the center strip to a shorter length and trimmed it down a bit in width. I didn't measure it. And here is another look at what I ended up with:

Have fun!

Santa's Lap w/ Moxxie & NAS

 Hello, it's Nuts About Sketches Monday!
The sketch I'm showing you today is actually from last week, but there is a new 2 page sketch up on the blog today, you can check it out here.
This sketch is from last Monday:

And is the one I used to create this layout:

My boys telling Santa what they want for Christmas. It's just a little bit magical, isn't it?
I used the fun new Happy Pawlidays line from Moxxie.

I stayed pretty true to the sketch and had lots of fun creating this page.
Just because this is a Pet Holiday line doesn't mean you can't use it for other things.
This cute Santa hat was cut off the adorable little doggie.

I added a few embellishments I've been gifted recently and ones that worked their way into my stash.

Using Moxxie's Red alpha for the title was really fun. It doesn't come with apostrophes so I just used the inside of an upper case Q. 

Moxxie is doing a giveaway for this line right now. Don't miss out!

What is on your list?

Gingerbread Kisses w/ Moxxie

 Hey there,
today I have this super cute layout I made using the fun Happy Pawlidays line!
We don't have any pets around our place but that did not slow me down on thinking of all the fun ways I could use this adorable line. Here's a layout I made of my little guy:

My kids thoroughly enjoyed making a gingerbread house that year and, not surprisingly, my little 3yr old, sweet tooth enjoyed eating the candies! It looked just like he'd gotten into someone's make-up when he was done, so we had him pucker up for a picture.

All of the details and closeup photos for this layout are on the Moxxie blog.
