Pigtail Twins

Here a LO I did for  Design Dollies both their element challenge and their sketch challenge all wrapped up into one.
 At christmas 2 years ago I found a cabbage patch doll that looked like my dd they even had the same outfit so of course I had to get it for her. She was so cute walking around with her matching cabbage patch doll in their matching outfits.

I designed the cabbage patch doll with SCAL and I am offering it to you. If you own scal and would like this cut downloaded it here : Brandilynn's Cabbage Patch Kid for free!!!!
Font is a free font called Love letters, it cuts beautifully with SCAL
Various papers used
"pearls" for Prima centers adhered with elemers 3d pearl paints

Blue Holiday

For the life of me last night I could not sleep because I had the design for this card on my mind. It took a little longer to come together than I thought, but I am very happy with the results.
I used SCAL the snowflake is actually a negative in the top layer of this card, digital stamp for the sentiment.

Warm wishes for the coming holiday to you and yours

Design Dollies

I created this card for the sketch challenge over at design dollies. I am so LOVING the bingo cards I see on layouts and cards, the new "in thing" or I have been under a rock and its just new to me, could be that too.

This card is acrylic although one could hardly tell seeing as it is mostly covered.
The bingo card and sentiment are computer generated or digital stamping whatever you prefer to call it.
Everything else is from my stash.
I am pretty sure the stickled snowflake has to go I am just not feeling it.

Practical Scrappers - Core Cardstock

This week at Practical Scrappers we were asked to use up that core cardstock. Everyone can up with brilliant ideas on how to use this paper, I choose to emboss my ctmh cardstock with a fiskar texture plate then to sand it so the snowflakes really pop. I used SCAL and bazzil cardstock for the reindeer, his bow is dollar store find ribbon, stamp studio g and skittles that were inked to match for a lil something extra.

Thanks for visiting, Please stop by practical scrappers to see the other DT members creations this week.
