All Dolled Up with SOUS...


It's my turn to post over at Stuck on U Sketches - playing along with the Die-Cut Challenge


--------------------------------------------------------
I do a lot of my shopping online so when the box comes, I have to have my daughter try it all on to make sure it fits. We usually do this little style show for my husband...I plan on taking pictures next time so I can fill these page with memories that will last my daughter a lifetime.

--------------------------------------------------
Here are some closeups - most of the clothing is pop-dotted with Thin 3D-Foam Tape for dimension...




Thanks for stopping by!!!

If you have a Cricut Explore and use Design Space, most of the files come with the monthly subscription and a few of them come from CTMH's Artbooking Collection!

My LOVE Affair with Paper - UYSBH...

Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop....this month is all about PAPER!!! Remember...this is all about USING YOUR STASH so we want to see some of that paper that's been hiding in your stash for a while!!!

If you've come from Terry's Blog, you're on the right track...

I have 3 boys and a little girl...before we had the little girl, it was hard to find BOY PAPER so when I did find some, I bought a LOT...lol. This is a card from using some of that paper...sadly it's almost gone!

------------------------------------------------
This card has some dimension so you probably don't want to mail it...
-----------------------------------------
And, here's a peek at the inside...

Thanks for stopping by! Now hop on over to Marie's Blog and see what she has to share...I'm sure it's beautiful!!!

I chose to use Sweet as Sugar because I just LOVE the apothecary jars and the assorted candy you can put in them...

 --------------------------------------------
Here's a look at my card...a bit simple but I was going for the CAS look so I guess it's mission accomplished! Colors are Pixie, Lagoon, Thistle & Glacier...

---------------------------------------------------------------
Here's a look at the inside...LOVED random stamping those gumballs!!!

It's now time to hop on over to Bren Yule's Blog where you will be in awe of her project!!!

Hello Sunshine...

I love Paper Smooches and their fresh stamp sets!!! 

This one is a FREE digital one I've had for quite some time and had to break it out for their Guest DT Spot...

----------------------------------------
I pop-dotted the sun for dimension and traced around one of the "hello sunshine" with a ShinHan marker...

Spider Man Themed Birthday...

Welcome to Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #94 where ANYTHING GOES except a card...if you want to post a card, make sure it's a shaped card or 3D!

If you have little ones that LOVE Spider Man...you'll love how easy these invites and cupcakes are!

I started with some simple circle-cut cards that I decorated with ovals for the eyes (two ovals - one black and one white - cut in half) and glitter web...

------------------------------------------
The inside is just as simple...typed up all the details on the computer and printed...matted it to add interest and hand-drew doodle lines around it and added little spider webs and spiders here and there...
--------------------------------------------------
Here are the cupcakes...and I'm no baker!!! It's not that I can't, it's just that I usually run out of time! These came together sooooo quickly. I baked the cupcakes and iced with red icing then took some royal icing (recipe found on the internet) in a piping bag and drew the spiderweb on some wax paper...stuck it in the freezer for 30 minutes, maybe then peeled them off and added them to the cupcakes! I also had some plastic spiders left over from Halloween...added those as well!

See how EASY it is to decorate for your next celebration!!!
