12 month scrapbook challenge

Christina as Creations with Christina is having a 12 month challenge to create a scrapbook layout each month. This is my submission for February.  My daughter and I took my grandson to Kiddieland about two years ago.  Kiddieland has since shut down and I thought I had better get this layout done LOL.  The title was cut on y Cricut but everything else is stickers from Jolee.  I didn't have had a cartridge with carnival or circus cuts.  Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!

All About Spring Challenge! - Cardztv

Mary at Cardztv has a challenge up right now to make anything "spring".  I've been wanting to make Post It! note covers for awhile now so I thought I would try it for this challenge.  I could not believe how extremely simple and quick this little craft was.  I followed the 10 step tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers and from start to finish (this includes going through my scraps to find paper) it took only about 15 minutes. I only made one because I didn't have any more Post It! notes LOL but I will be making a lot more of these to give out at the office for small birthday presents.  Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!

Cricut Cardz Challenge #60

At the Cricut Cardz Challenge this week we need to make a masculine valentine card.  You may not think this is too masculine, but I saw the chick and thought of a t-shirt my 5 year old grandson wears and decided to make this card for him. The sentiment is on a wobble and because of the oversize heart it wobbles alot!...hope you like it, TFL and happy scrapping.

Valentine Treat Can

Challenge #16 Valentine's Day Project

Cristina at crafting with cristina is having a challenge on her blog to design something related to Valentine's Day, but it couldn't be a card.  I had this can, similiar to a very small paint can, for awhile and thought I would decorate it.  I can't tell you what kind of paper I used because it is all stuff that has been laying around my scrap room for awhile now.  I used the Xyron sticker maker to get the small hearts and cupids sticky and then glittered them.  The heart on the lid is placed on a Wobble.  TFL!
