This weeks challenge is to make an item with a Back To School Theme! I decided to make this cool apple shapped Card!

Welcome Back Apple Card - Removed for Publication in Cricut Idea book coming out in March 2011!

Details are as follows:

Shaped card was created with the Preserves Cricut Cartridge. I used scrap cardstock for the cuts and the Patterned Paper is DCWV I added some Ribbon bling and a Typed and printed sentiment from the computer. I also added a little glossy accents to the apple seeds to make them look more like seeds!

Friendzy Friday - Make your own Felties Part 1

This will be a 2 part series on How to make your own Felties! While creating my DT Layouts for the August 1st Release I thought it would be fun to create some of my own Felties! Todays review on making felties covers how to make them using any regular dies you may have (ie Sizzix, Cuttlebug etc!) Part 2 will follow on September 10th where I show you how you can make felties using the Cricut Die cut machine so make sure you come back to check that out on September 10th!

Here is what will be required to make any felties not including any additonal embelishments you choose to add to your felt pieces:

I am using my Cuttlebug and some cuttlebug dies for this example! You will also need some sissors, cardstock, felt of your choice along with any liquid adhesive, I like to use the 3-in-1 craft glue.

First cut a pice of felt and cardstock to fit your die shape. Next your cuttle bug stack from bottom up should be Plate A, Plate B, Die cut side up, felt and then a piece of cardstock. The cardstock will give you a cleaner cut with the felt! Use your other B plate and run it through the cuttlebug once all the way through and then back again.

Next up embelish your felt shape! Here I have added a button and some bling to the flower shape!

Here are some more felties I created with shapes I have at home! on the ice cream cone I did some hand stitching with embroidery floss and added some bling. The trees I added some buttons and twine to.

I hope you have fun playing with some die cut shapes you may have at home! Make sure you come back on September 10th when I show you how to create Felties with your Cricut Machine or die cuts you may have around your scrapspace!

LRW- Challenge #40 - Circles

Dee's Challenge for this week on Little Red Wagon is to use Circles on your project! While I was creating my DT Layouts for this month's Two Scrapbook Friends Reveal I created the following layout and I added Circles to my Tree!

This layout and title just came to me as I was checking out photos I had on my camera still... My Dad is not usually one who acts up in front of the camera and it totally made me laugh when I saw the photo! I don't even remember him doing this when I took the picture in the first place!

The circles used were hand cut from the patterned paper and I pop dotted some of them to add a little dimension! I also had to add a little sparkle with some stickles!

I hope you can play along with us this week at Little Red Wagon!

2SF's Layout Challenge

For this weeks Layout Challenge at Two Scrapbook Friends I thought it would be fun to focus on creating pages with more than 5 Photos on them! I recently worked on a family album for a friend and there were so many photos I had to come up with some creative ways to create pages using multiple photos! I managed to fit 10 photos on this double page layout!

I am looking forward to seeing some layouts with multiple photos on them! I hope you can play along and link up your projects on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum!
