Hello Snowman Card

Hooray! I am back on the Cutting Cafe design team and today is my first post!!!  I so missed being part of this team.  My mandatory break is over and I am itching to get creating.

Our first assignment was to work with any file of our choice.  It was fun to go through the website and pick out what we wanted to play with.  I chose to use the Fun With Snowflakes set!  I love snowflakes and fell in love with the die-cut background and just had to give it a try.


Here is a close-up shot of the background.  I used my Silhouette to do the cutting and it cut like butter.  The die-cut swirl is a die from My Favourite Things.  It is available at Two Scrapbook Friends.

I also used one of the Mini Words sets from the Cutting Cafe to make my tag.  I love these sets.  They are the perfect way to add a little sentiment to a card!

The snowman image that I used was from Sassy Cheryl Designs.  I love, love, love her digi's and use them whenever I have the chance.  I entered this card in her 'snowman' challenge.  You can check it out here.

Thanks for visiting my blog.  I hope you will take some time and visit the links throughout my post.  Stop back again soon as I am busy working on other projects that I will be posting soon.

I'm Back...........

The Cutting Cafe Designer

I am super excited to be back on the design team for The Cutting Cafe! I can't wait to start working with all the cool and fun files that they offer. Stay tuned for all my creations starting in January.


Rangers Vs Generals!

I have been busy working on another layout for the Two Scrapbook Friends Christmas Online Crop. This crop has been a great excuse for me to pull out my scrapbook supplies and it has also been a good distraction.

I did this layout for Christa's challenge. She wanted us to include a list. I have several lists on my page. It is the first of many layouts that I plan to make for the Rangers 50th season.


This is the opening night game against the Oshawa Generals at the newly renovated Kitchener Auditorium.  I used my Silhouette to create the title on my page and created a shadow for the Rangers word to make it stand out.


I added 3 stars to my list to highlight the 3 stars of the game!


I recorded all the stats from the game in the squares without photos.


I also included the game ticket that has details as well.  This album is going to be amazing when it is all done. I only wish my dad could have been here to see it when it is finished.

Season's Greetings

I'm back again with a card that I made for the Two Scrapbook Friends Christmas Online Crop! The challenges are awesome and I hope you are playing along too!

 This card is for Ann's recipe challenge. These are so much fun to do. Here was the recipe I had to follow:

  • white cardstock base
  • stamped image
  • dry embossing
  • fussy cut
  • Christmas card


This image is from Whipper Snapper Designs.  I coloured it with my Copics and then cut out the image with my scissors.


I embossed my background with a snowflake embossing folder and my Cuttlebug.


Once I had the image coloured, it was a quick and easy card to put together.  Thanks for a great challenge Ann!

Christmas Online Crop

Happy Monday! Over on the Two Scrapbook Friends forum, we are hosting an Online Christmas Crop. It runs from November 30th until December 9th. There are really great challenges and some fun games too!

My challenge is called I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas!  For this challenge you need to use snowflakes somewhere on your project.  I created this 3D snowman using an SVG file from SVG Cuts.


His hat comes off and you can fill him up with treats, a gift card, or both :)


I embossed the outer panels using a snowflake embossing folder and added a piece of flannel fabric with snowflakes for my scarf.


I hope you will visit the forum and play along with some of the awesome challenges.  I finished my first one last night.  I will post is later this week.
