From the Desk of Santa

Welcome to another Terrific Tuesday Die Cut and or Stamp Challenge over at My Paper Crafting. I am so glad you stopped by! Today’s challenge is "Holiday and Red or Green as the main color"!

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays.  I love the holiday movies and music.  I don't do much decorating but maybe that will change one day.  One to my card...



I used the QT Patootie Christmas Elf digital stamp and the sentiment is from Jaded Blossom Santa's Mail stamp set. 

BTW, this the last challenge for PCW, but we are not going anywhere.  Starting in December, My Paper Crafting will begin the 25 days of Christmas.
Challenge:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Turkey Toe Blog Hop

Welcome to the Turkey Toe Blog Hop, brought to you by the design teams of Made Especially For You and Red Carpet Studio!

Today the design teams of Made Especially For You and Red Carpet Studio have teamed up to share with you all sorts of turkey-themed projects to help you get ready for Thanksgiving!

 If you've come from Stephanie J's blog, you're in the right place.

For today's hop, I made a digital layout using My Memories Suite .  I used the Let's Talk Turkey digital kit.  With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I need to get started on the layouts.  I used a sketch from the CTMH Cherish Scrapbooking Program (retired) for the design.  If you never tried Digital Scrapbooking, My Memories have a great software package, which is very similar to My Digital Studio by SU!, but more cost effective.  If you decided to purchase the software, use the code STMMMS59859 for $10 off the software.



We also have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment on every stop of the hop!

Market Fresh Mondaze

Good Morning!  Today I have a cricut showcase for My Paper Crafting!  Here is my post.


Hi! my name is Candice and today I am showcasing the Create A Critter 2 Cricut Cartridge.  I just love this cartridge.  I think I even like it more than the first one.

For my first project, I created an accordion mini album.  This project is versatile that it can also be a family Christmas wish list.  I used a 12 x 12 sheet of Bazzil card stock that was scored at 4" and 8", then turned to score at 4". All of the images were cut at 2.5" using the Cricut Imagine and Better Together imagine cartridge.  I cut the layers of the album out at 3.75". 



The second project is a treat bag that I made for Halloween.  I take some paper bags I purchased from Michaels and cut them down to 3.5".  The bee is cut out at 3" using the Cricut Imagine and Buccaneer cartridge.





The last project I have for you is a Christmas card using the Accessary feature of the CAC2 cartridge.  I cut out two hollys (I think that what it's called), one at 1.5" and the other at 2".  I used the CTMH Art philosophy cartridge to cut out a border.  Using the Christmas Cheer stamp set from CTMH, I created a snowflake pattern paper and stamped a sentiment in chocolate ink.  Also, I used some Red Glitz Glitter Gel on the cranberries.

 Thanks for stopping by!
