Choo Choo Train - May - Celebration

This is a 2 page layout using the file from Creative Kuts for the month of May - titled "Celebration".

This is page 1 of a 2 page layout from Creative Kuts for the May Train File...a set of 3 or 4 scrapbook kits offered each month for $10.00 (monthly subscription).  I changed it out a little bit - where it was to be a butterfly/bug I changed to a mouse with a packet of flower seed and flowers at his feet.  Added sunflowers in the background with a fence in front.  The sunflowers and mouse are water colored.  The sunflowers cut out by hand as I couldn't cut it with my machine.  The fence is a file from Silhouette Studio DE library; and the butterfly is print and cut.


Page 2 of a 2 page scrapbook layout, using the pieces from the kit.  Thankfully I purchased a white gel pen when at the Hobby Lobby that I found in Albertville - far easier to get to than Huntsville!!  The butterflies from my Silhouette Studio DE library which I printed and cut.  Paper from my stash of cardstock and paper pads

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a great weekend of crafting.

Last Challenge Card - Flower Card

The last card for this challenge over at Creative Kuts Facebook group, and it was fun to make.  Using paper from stash of design paper and cardstock I created this double-fold card and the hex folded flower.  I decided to stamp a sentiment later when needed. 

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me this week, and have a blessed and crafting weekend.

Tri-fold Honeycomb Card

2nd to last card in this Card challenge over at Creative Kuts Facebook Group...


Tri-Fold Honeycomb Card

Bumble Bees and Bee Bear from my Silhouette Studio DE library - print and cut using my Silhouette Cameo or Brother Scan N Cut machine

Paper from personal stash.

Next time I create this card, the strips at top and bottom will be design paper - not card stock.  And the base needs to be of firmer card stock - it cracked when folded along score lines!

Thank you for visiting with me on this hot, hot and humid day, and blessings to all.

Creative Kuts Card Challenge - Flower Card


I'm getting down to the finish on week 2 of the Card Challenge over at Creative Kuts Facebook Group.  I have 2 more cards to create and than will work on other projects I have started, especially the mini-album for my granddaughter and her baby.

This card kit can be found, hopefully, over at Creative Kuts. 

I went with bold colors for this card showing front and inside of the card.  I embossed the circle mat which I will not do again, as glue/adhesive will not stick to it!.  And I noticed, after putting together that the flower is off center but looks good anyhow.

All paper and embellishments from my personal stash.  It's a nice and simple card to cut out and decorate and actually more birthday cards can be made, using this idea along with Christmas cards.

Thank you for taking a moment to visit with me, and have a blessed week.

A Mini-album

This is a 3 ring mini-album I am creating - just because!  I first  cut out the chipboard from front, back and binding end (next time I will double layer the chipboard for strength).  I used paper I bought Tuesday Morning Store I located in Albertville, AL (yay) for the main pices; and decorative paper from a paper pad I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  

Inside cover I created a triangle pocket following a video (sorry I don't remember which one as I am watching quite a few).  I am considering adding a circle pocket in the corner; and the binding hardware I purchased from out of Canada (binding rings reasonably priced, but shipping cost slightly expensive but consider where it's coming from!)  It was very easy to apply using my hammer and hole punch.

The pages I will create following a video from Scrapbookers of Country Creations on Facebook, changing how I do the pages.  I am planning to create the hinges, but punch holes and it, hopefully, will be 3 inches wide and than apply the pages to the 'hinges'.  This way I can create the pages that are in the video.  I will post pictures as I go along (no videos though).

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a blessed week.
