LRW - It's Another Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!!  I can't believe we are saying goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015!!!  Where has the time gone.  That aside, I wish all of my friends, family and followers a very Happy New Year filled with happiness!!!

Now, on to this weeks challenge.  Tracy is our hostess and she wants us to ring in the new year. Before I get to my project, I have decided to challenge myself a little to start off 2015!!  I am going to create 25 projects using only items from my stash (so nothing new) before I can venture out and create things with new products.  This is going to be for my Little Red Wagon challenges and my regular scrapbooking!!!  I will record my projects here on my blog, as well as my FB page.  I have so much stuff and I felt it was a great way for me to organize and use what I have.

Now, on to my first project!!!  I created this New Years card using everything from my stash.

I created my own background using some texture paste and I made my own template using my Silhouette.

LRW - Happy Birthday

Here we are, on the eve of Christmas Day. I am going to take this opportunity to wish all my followers and friends a very Merry Christmas.  Hopefully your holidays are packed with lots of time with family and friends.

This weeks Little Red Wagon challenge is brought to us from Jan, and she is looking for a birthday themed project.  I pulled out my Silhouette and created this cupcake shaped card using all sorts of scraps from my stash.

LRW - Anything Christmas Themed

It is my turn to host the challenge at Little Red Wagon and I decided since Christmas is only a week away that I would keep it really simple!!  Anything Christmas that leaves the door wide open!!

Here is my insiration!!!  I created this multi-layered wreath using my Silhouette (big surprise, huh?).

I added some sequins/enamel dots for the holly berries and wrapped some twine around for garland.

I used my trimmer and a bone folder to add some embosssed lines to make a border and then added some ribbon and a tiny tag for my sentiment.

This was a fun card to make.  I hope you will join us and create 'anything Christmas themed' and play along with my challenge.  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  If you need a little more inspiration, visit the 'girlfriends' blogs by clicking their names on my sidebar.

LRW - So Flaky

This week, the Little Red Wagon challenge is being hosted by Jan!!  She want to see snowflakes, and because no 2 snowflakes are ever alike, I think there are going to be a lot of great projects this week.

I wanted to try something a little different, so I made a shaker card.  I used up some old scraps I had in my stash, but the best part was that I actually managed to get the word 'snow' to line up perfectly inside my window :)

I added a combination of beads and sequins for the filler.  This is the tricky part.....because they want to jump around and stick to the adhesive.  I also added a nice big chipboard snowflake with a button and twine to accent.

I added some of my favourite ribbon, twine and an enamel dot, along with a tiny tag that says 'brrr'.

A big 'thank you' to Jan for this awesome challenge.  I am super happy with my card and had a lot of fun playing along.

LRW - Things With Wings

Hello everyone! I am here with another challenge from Little Red Wagon. This week it is Joanne's turn and she came up with a great one.  Her challenge is 'Things With Wings'.  Isn't that great?  I am sure there are going to be lots of interesting entries this week.

I decided to make this sweet Penguin shaped card!!  His wings are tiny, but they are there :)

I embellished with some stitching on his scarf, a couple of sequins and a borrowed sticker from my daughter.

I am really happy with how he turned out.  I love his big googly eyes!!

I hope you will visit the other LRW girlfriends and see what they have created.  Click on their names on my sidebar to visit their blogs.  If you play along, don't forget to link up your project over on the Little Red Wagon blog.
