Bling it on!

Two posts in one day?  Almost impossible from me!  But I found two outstanding challenges to enter, and had to get to scrapping!

I was inspired by this sketch at Stuck? Sketches:

This is for their September 15 challenge.  You can find all the details here.

I also used lots of Cricut cuts, so this layout is perfect for the challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2.  This week's challenge is to use any Cricut cut on your layout!  You can find these details here.

The cartridges I used were:  Elegant Edges--title block and scalloped border, Jasmine for the title letters, Storybook--flourishes, and Paper Doll Dress Up--crowns and scepter.

My patterned paper is Kaisercrafts' Giggly, and I used lots of Bazzill cardstock.

Thanks for checking out my layout!  Hope to be able to check in with you more often!

A few cards

Here's a few cards I've done for challenges over at A Cherry On Top.  Hostesses on the Message Board have challenges going all through the month, and they keep my crafty mojo going!

The first one is for a friend of mine who is going to Hawaii with her sister.  I wish I could go with her . . . . Anyway, she'll love this card--she's been getting some anxiety about leaving her kids, so I'm hoping this will lighten her mood a little.

I used a Snag 'em Stamp--the hula penguin girl.  I used Night of Navy ink and colored in a few spots with my Inktense pencils.  Added a few enamel dots and a sentiment stamped with some mini alphas, and done!  Now, to just get it to her before she leaves . . . .

I made this Tigger card for the Disney challenge on ACOT.  It was to use a jungle theme, and I thought this patterned paper was perfect!  I cut Tigger out with my new Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge.  Loving that thing!  DD#2 wants all her favorite characters cut out, though, and she's disappointed there's no Christopher Robin . . . . . .

And the last one is a Christmas card.  I guess I can't start too early on mine.  Even though I'll probably stick it in a box and forget to send it out. lol.  The Christmas Card challenge was to use embossing in any way.  I chose dry embossing with a poinsettia folder.  Love these Doodlebug enamel dots to add just a little bling . . . . . .
