Meg's Weekly Challenge....

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I wanted to bring you a fun, easy challenge that you could use to create a quick layout because we all know we are super busy right now before the Holidays! 
This week, I would like to see you use only one thing on your layout..I would like to see you all layer up those gorgeous flowers you have hanging around in your kits.  That's it!  Easy-peasy! 
Here is a layout one I created.  I layered all different flowers and even added in a metal center. 
Let's see what you all come up with!   

Be sure to stop back over the Gallery to give us a glimpse of what you created!

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday with your families, friends and eveyone dear to your heart.

December DT Gallery

The Little Red Ladies have done it again...blown me away with their creativity and ability to create unique projects with the same products.  Here's one of Meg' that she created a multi font title, used stickers from three sets...the flowers, the's so pink and girly and sweet!!!

Stroller rides with Buddy...

Karrie used the same pennant sticker and the same red paper and October Afternoon stickers but got a very different look...

Trading Places

How cute are those photos, also!!!  And here's Tammy's...she used my favorite woodgrain papers...and the amazing yellows just popped this photo!  (See the washi in the corner of the photo??)


and one from me...I had fun with my Cameo for this, the leaves and the doily were cut with kit papers...I loved Tammy's use of this paper for her beach photos and thought I would use the same but then this moody layout just sort of showed up as I was playing...

Stay with me

So there's my favorite picks from the DT Gallery this sure to pop by and check out all the eye candy!  There are lots more to see in The Gallery.  Don't forget we have fun challenges and sketches for you, too.  :)  Most are posted here on the blog, but you can find them on the Challenge Board, too.

Weekly Challenge

I absolutely LOVE the Washi Tape Sara uses when packaging up the kits. I personally don't have any of my own, but I always try to use the tape she includes on the packaging.

My challenge to you this week is to carefully remove the Washi Tape and use it up! Here are some examples from this month's kit. Have fun with it!

Friday Fun!

Karrie here with this week's edition of Friday Fun!  I have been having a great time creating projects inspired from Pinterest.  I thought I would share with you a  few of my latest creations.

These Melted Snowman Ornaments were super easy to make using clear glass ornaments, Epsom Salt, peppercorns and scraps of orange paper.  I made these with Avery, age 3, and she is giving them to her preschool teachers for Christmas.

This is a very inexpensive vase I had on hand.  I got a $1 porcelain house from Dollar Tree and added glitter to it.  Set in on a base of Epsom Salt and stuck in some sprigs of fake greenery I pulled of a wreath in the basement.  So simple and very elegant.

Here are a couple altered canvases I made with left over Thickers.  The large blue canvas is hard to see but says "Dashing Through the Snow" and has large snowflakes on it.  The red canvas says "Deck the Halls".  Again, very simple but looks so nice on the mantel.   

I hope this inspires you to go out and create a few projects you've been hoarding on Pinterest.

DT Gallery Peek

Here's a peek at the DT girls first designs of the month...first up, Meg's layout...I love how she misted the doily and layered upon it for her whole cluster.

Our Sunday Afternoons...

Tammy blew me away with this beachy layout of her best friend.  I didn't really think of this paper as beachy but LOOK at this!!!!  Yeah, so lifting that!

Beach- December LRS Kit

Karrie used this same paper but with totally different results...LOVE how she used the frame, too!

The Next Top Chef

Nikki created this sweet layout...look how little and cute Bella was!  The floral paper is perfect and she used the frame in a unique way, too!


Lastly, mine...I could buy 10 of this woodgrain paper and still want to hoard more...I love it!

Love You

So there's our first look...hope you enjoyed it!!

December Card Challenge!

Hi everyone! 

I have the pleasure of posting the December Card Challenge and I had a great time creating with the December kit.  This kit is amazingly versatile and can fit just about any subject!  My challenge for you this month is to create a card with some sort of cut-out on it.  It can be on the edge, like my example, or it can be in the middle with a little embellishment peeking through.  You get to decide but I want to see a cut out! 

Please upload your card to the challenge area of the gallery and link a photo of it to the December Card Challenge thread so we can all admire your work!  Have fun!
