UYSBH - All about Chipboard...

Welcome to this month's Use Your Stash Blog Hop (UYSBH) featuring Chipboard!!!

If you've come from Terry's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around 'till you've seen all 6 Blogs.

My card is truly a use your stash because this card is actually from 2010...

I stamped a bunch of Dimensional Elements Stars then glued them onto some Crystal Blue (retired) Cardstock.  I added a darker blue (Pacifica) for my sentiment and some Sunset ribbon and clear buttons backed with Sunset Cardstock.  A shimmer brad is in the center of the buttons to add some bling!

Thanks for stopping by...hop on over to Casandra's Blog and see what she has to share using Chipboard.

Hope we inspired you to USE YOUR STASH this month!!!

SOUS Fall Blessings...

Welcome to the ANYTHING AUTUMN Die-Cut Challenge for Stuck On U Sketches...

I had SOOOOO MUCH fun with this layout!!!  I've been watching a couple of my fellow SOUS & PPPR Design Team girls and their layouts are always so AWESOME so I decided I was gonna give it a try!

If you're a regular reader, you know that I'm a pretty CAS kinda girl outside of embellishments and distressing so all this layering and clutter was hard for me but I persevered!

I put this layout in my Designed Decor Colonial White Shadow Box for display...sometimes I love that it doesn't have a glass, sometimes I wish it did...
Here are some close-ups...
It's hard to see in the shadow box but there is a strip of Bronze Shimmer Trim across the top of the layout...LOVE that little extra bling!

Used lots of 3D-Foam Tape...Thin and Regular to get the layered look...

Don't forget to head on over to the Anything Autumn Challenge and check out what the other DT Members created AND play along!!!

Pillow Box Owl - DTC #86...

Welcome to another week of DTC (Decorate To Celebrate) Challenges...anything goes so please play along!!!

I'm featuring all things Halloween on my blog these days so this Pillow Box Owl was perfect to showcase for the DTC #86 Challenge.

These are super simple to cut with your Cricut or cutter of your choice OR would be easy enough to do with store-bought pillow boxes.  I used CTMH's Artbooking Cricut Collection for the Owl and the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection for the pillow box...

Here's a side view...I just sized my owl in Cricut DesignSpace so that here ears would reach the top of the pillow box peaks...
I took my scissors and snipped off the bottom corners so that the owl would stand up on its own...
Candy Corn is in this little pillow box but you could put anything you'd like!

Here are what the cuts look like...

Don't forget to check out the other DT Members and see what they've created!
