Sweet Christmas by Ciera

My friend Ciera is just getting started in the scrappin' world and I'm so proud of the cute card and cookie bag she made the other day I had to share with everyone. Make sure you leave lots of comment love for her.
She used Skipping Stones Stamps on her card and cookie bag. The Santa hat is from Holiday Cats and the cookie is from Buns and Crunches.
 She used Echo Park paper from last years Christmas line and some Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The shape is cut with some new QuickKutz  nesting dies. So proud of her! She even learned how to do stamp masking with this set too.

Sassy Happy Birthday

Happy Friday bloggers! Today is my final post for the Creative Vision DT. I'm sad this term is over, Laura and her stamps are so amazing! I'm truly honored to have been on not only 1, but 2 of her DT's. Trust me, if she'd let me, I'd never leave! :) Anyway, I'm going out with a bang, humor in full effect. Here's my last card:
 I used the Sassy Happy Birthday II set. This is by far, one of my favorite sets in the Creative Vision store. It is right up my sense of humor ally. I used some of Basic Grays Little Black Dress paper along with some of the Tim Holtz craft Core'dinations which I embossed with a leopard/cheetah print folder and sanded it.
 I tied some black tool around the card that I put some gold dots of Stickles all over. I finished this off with a fun stick pin.
I inked my fun senti and added a few Stickles there as well.

Thank you everyone for all the great comments you have left on my projects and now get yourself over to the store and pick up this stamp set. I promise that you'll love it! Have a Happy and Safe New Year!

Let's go fishing

Hello bloggers and happy Thursday. Chelsea here bringing you a layout using the oh so fun Hooked on Fishing set. I also used the emboss resist technique Lauren posted which can be found HERE. It was so easy and fun. I used Distress Inks instead of chalks and it worked just as good. Well, I'm not waiting for the fish to bite so I'm going to get on with this post....
 I had some of this fun fish paper left over from the card I made with this set the last time I was on Creative Vision's DT. It's so cute! I added a picture of my brother and I from WAY back in the day. If you look close, he's holding a little fishy on the end of his mini pole.
I used the resist on the tag and the worm and the bobber. I popped the worm and bobber to finish off the layout. May sure you hurry over to the store and pick up this set for your favorite outdoorsy stamper!

Here is my post for the hop. I created a cookie bag (which unfortunatly is empty) with a cute little bag topper as well as the receipe for the cookies that should be in the bag.
