Give Thanks with Die Cuttin' Divas

Welcome to another Tuesday with Die Cuttin' Divas. Last week we enjoyed your wonderful turkey projects and this week we will continue the Thanksgiving celebration with a Thanksgiving challenge.
I wanted a card that was simple and showed thanks.  I found this great "give thanks" cut on one of my go to carts - Designer's Calendar and the rest of the card wrapped around it.
I wanted to continue the leaf pattern in my embossing and found just the right folder to do so. The simple pearls were added for a little something extra.

I hope your family is all well and that you are enjoying time together this Thanksgiving season. Please join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our Thanksgiving Challenge.

Let's Talk Turkey with Die Cuttin' Divas

Happy Tuesday everyone. Thanksgiving is coming up so soon so this week the Divas at Die Cuttin' Divas are talking turkey.
I love this cute teddy bear dressed as a turkey and had to put him on my card.  I found a round card, added a simple trim piece and got to work cutting out this cute bear. Once he was all done I decided to give his feathers a little stripe action.
And of course he needed to wobble because that is so what every turkey needs.
I hope you will join us in our turkey talk challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas.  Use a turkey on your project (and a die cut) and possibly win a fun prize.  We give one away to a random project every other week. Come play along.

The Perfect Card Recipe with Die Cuttin' Divas

Welcome to Tuesday (which means a bug congrats for getting past Monday!!!). It is time for a Die Cuttin' Diva Challenge. This week we have a little crafting recipe for you to use:
1 Ribbon/Twine
2 Patterned Papers
3 Pearls/Gems
Mix and stir with a die cut added in and what do you get...
I got this cute little princess card  for a wonderful little girl I know. I actually started with this die cut princess that I had made a few weeks back but never used on a project. She was so fun that I went looking for papers and ribbon to make it all work with.

Papers - all from my random paper stash...CHECK

Put it together with ribbon and pearls...CHECK
A cute and fun card made with a great challenge recipe..I hope you will join in the fun. Our  current sponsor is Cricut Vinyl Supplies. Stop over and see what the other Divas made as some inspiration this week.

Ghost Poop with Die Cuttin' Divas

Trick or Treat is around the corner (so looking forward to it) and this week Die Cuttin' Divas want to see your Halloween Projects. I really enjoy making some simple treats for my coworkers and when I saw this cute idea on Pinterest  I had to go for it myself.
Ghost Poop!!  How silly and fun right? (okay maybe a little gross as well but it is Halloween). You start with a bag of marshmallows and an easy bag topper.

Next, I used print and cut to place this cute poem onto some ovals. I found the poem on Pinterest and just tweaked it a little to make it about more than one ghost.
The final thing I needed was my ghosts which of course needed some google eyes. Now I have a bunch of ghost poop to hand out to some friends. I also am working on a different version of this that I will share in a few days.
I hope you will join us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas and share your Halloween Projects!

Think Pink with Die Cuttin' Divas

This week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are thinking pink in honor of Breast cancer awareness we want to see your projects inspired by Breast Cancer.I wanted a card that said thanks for the support so I created this
I started with all my shades of Pink and embossed them with different embossing folders before placing them together on a card base.
I cut out the simple Thanks and added it on top of my pink. 
I gave the card to a friend to say thanks for her strength as even though she just got done fighting breast cancer she is always there for me.

I hope you will join us this week at Die Cuttin' Divas Think Pink- Breast cancer inspired projects!

Boo to You Parade!

It is so so so close I can taste it...Our 2nd trip to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party is drawing near. The first time I got to attend this amazing event at Walt Disney World was a few years back. My daughter and I had such an amazing time and this year is going to be just as wonderful and we get to bring my husband along for the excitement.
This is a layout I created from the last trip to the party and the Boo to You parade that goes on. I started with a sketch by Becky Fleck and organized my photos.
Once I knew what photos I wanted I started looking for just the right papers and frames for my journaling boxes.
I selected some great frames off the Fancy Frames Cricut Cart that really had strong details by did not take away form all the fun papers I had put together on this layout.

So cannot wait to see this parade once again.  I am sure photos and layouts will be coming soon after we return. (Even if this one took me 2 years to complete!!)

Orange & Purple Play with Die Cuttin' Divas

Boo to you!!! I am guessing any are working on fun Halloween projects as we get closer and closer to Trick or Treat and this week at Die Cuttin' Divas we want to see those projects. The challenge- Use Orange & Purple plus one other color.
I opted to use black as my extra color because I love this cute spider web and he looked super cute with my fun orange webbed paper. Once I had him all cut out I added some Stickles to make his web sparkle and some fun google eyes.
On top of my sparkly web I added a simple "Boo!" as my main message. I love fun Halloween cards. I hope you can play along with our color challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas. We have a wonderful prize to give away to a random winner every other week.  Our current sponsor is Flourish with a Bling!
