Snow Much Fun!

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm sharing a single page layout I created for our Grandson Greyson aka our "Grand Prince".  This is our only grandchild and he is 9 months old and lives in Whitehorse, YK.  Sooooo far away from Ontario so I have to busy myself creating layouts of him so I can look at his precious little face all the time.  The day these shots were take it was a balmy -5 warm for someone who lives in the Yukon lol.  Greyson loves the snow and would be more than willing to just hang out and play but he was just out for a quick little bit of fresh air.  I LOVE his handmade bunny slippers so if you were wondering why I made the "Bunny" die cut this layout is why.  At first I thought it kind of weird to create a winter layout with a bunny but now that I have it all put together I'm rather pleased with the outcome.  Hope you like it too.

Products used:  Photo Play Winter Meadow patterned paper "Winter Joy", "Winter Wishes" & "Winter Woods", cardstock "Lagoon" & "Juneberry", OCS Custom Die Cut "Snow Much Fun" & "Baby Bunny"

Thanks for stopping by today, hope to see you again soon!

Winter Fox

Hi Everyone,

I created this single page 12 x 12 layout for my Grandson, I'm just waiting for the pictures to be sent to me.  I was under a bit of a time crunch when I was making this layout so I went for a single instead of my traditional double page.

I created a few extra of the Winter Fox die cut and they are available in the OCS store HERE

Have a wonderful day!

Christmas Pals - Christmas/Winter Challenge Day 18

Welcome to Day 18th of the OCS & High Hopes Christmas/Winter Challenge I'm glad you stopped by!

Today I'm sharing a cutie from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called Christmas Pals.  This year I seem to be in the mood to create quicker and easier cards, maybe because I have so many to get ready to send out this year. 

I so enjoy colouring Santa...I think I'm just a kid at heart, but aren't we all.  At one time red's where my least favourite colour to work with but now I love them.

Elvin Eldar - Day 11 of the OCS/HH Winter/Christmas Challenge

Today I'm sharing Elvin Eldar from High Hopes "Seasons of Joy" release.  The sentiment is Naughty List also from High Hopes.  I'm sending this little cutie off to my 7 month Grandson in early December.  I know how could a 7 month old baby possibly make the "Naughty List" right?!  Well according to his Momma he is a little nuisance sometimes lol.  I think him cutting 4 teeth in just a few days then biting her toe may have sent her over the edge.  Sorry I'm chuckling inside just thinking about it...but we Nana's get to do that.

I colored Elvin with Copics here's the list:

Skin - E000, E00, E11, E04, E21, R22 & R20

Flyin' High Santa....Day 4 of the OCS/HH Winter Challenge

It's Day 4 of our Christmas/Winter Challenge both on the OCS & High Hopes blogs.  Are you going to join in the fun this month?  We hope so!!

Today I'm keeping the card very CAS (Clean and Simple).  This little cutie is from High Hopes Rubber Stamps and it's called Flyin' High Santa.  If you don't own a lot of supplies or if you just need a break from complicated or time consuming cards...this one is for you.  I did a bit of sponging on the background with a little piece of torn paper to make it look like a cloud background.  Any kind of light blue water base ink will work for this.  Just take your time and work in layers.  If you have glitter kicking around....hmm I just happen to have bucket loads, add a little of that as well with a white gel pen to highlight a few areas.  I popped up Santa on a wobble so it's almost like he is really flying.

Winter Fun with High Hopes Winter Moose

Today I'm sharing a newly released image from High Hopes Rubber Stamps called Winter Moose with the Winter Fun sentiment.

This little cutie was colored with Prisma Pencils while I traveled to the Yukon to see my son and grandson.  Have you ever tried to color in an airport or on a plane?  The lighting is not great in either place....note to self....bring a battery operated Ott light next time lol.  I used some old paper from MME's Lost & Found 3 6 x 6 pad to create this non-traditional winter card.  The design is simple which means you can create a bunch of them in no time at all.

RR019WinterMooseCard1Blog

Prisma Colors:  Antlers, Hoofs, Tail & Belly - Light Umber & Ginger Root, Body - Dark & Light Umber, Face - Dark & Light Umber with Ginger Root, Scarf - 50% Cool Gray & Slate Grey, Cheek, Nostrils & Inside Ears - Blush Pink, Background - Indigo Blue

Thanks for stopping by & I hope you have a wonderful day!

A crafty creation!

Hi everyone,

My 2 friends and I enjoy crafting together....we are like the 3 pack craft pack.  One of our friends just recently celebrated her "29 again" birthday.  What do you buy for someone who already has it all?  It's tough so this was the idea...make her something that represents who she is.  Now this special "crafty pack gal" is the guru of everything baked, cooked & crafty so that makes it even a harder task.  She also makes tons of albums and shadow box frames herself as gifts.  So basically I high jacked her idea lol.  We like to do a little something nice for each other for our birthdays...it's just fun.  I typically am the one in the group who never has time to get a project done, so it was my turn to make it happen.

I have used Ronda Stamping Angel and Kathy Quilting Angel both from High Hopes Rubber Stamps for this project.  I found a couple of cool little crafty quotes on line so I re-typed them, printed them on my laser and used my Minc with Gold foil to make the words pretty.  I don't know who thought up the quotes so I can't give credit to them but whoever you are thank you.  I picked up this adorable shadow box frame at our local Winners...it was just perfect for the project.

I added some pretty lace and pearls at the top and bottom of the frame to embellish it & also on the 4 x 6 cards.

Here are a couple of close ups of the inside cards....

Happy Birthday & Hello Sunshine from AnnaLee

Hello Everyone,

Today I'm back to share the adorable AnnaLee from the Darling Divas release at High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I have actually coloured this cutie twice both a little different.

The 1st card is all about the pinks....

AnnaLee1LoraWMLately I have been playing around with doing different types of grass.  Grass has always been one of those things I find very difficult to do...so I will continue my quest to practice.  I used some really old Spellbinder dies that have been calling my name from the cupboard forever lol.  I made all the little gumdrops with Nuvo Drops...gosh I love being able to make my own little drops, that's another thing that will still take more practice but practice makes perfect right.

Copics for Happy Birthday AnnaLee....

Hair - E35, E31, E30 & YR31

Skin - E000, E00, E11 with Pink Prisma for cheeks

Blouse & Shoes - R85, R83, R81

Bench - E27, E25, E23

Grass - G46, G43, G40

Ears on cat - R20

Bows & Stripes - Y38, Y35, Y32

Background - B0000

The 2nd card is more about the blue turquoise theme....

AnnaLee2LorawmThe background on this card has a bit of a different pattern for the grass.  I also played around with a scallop die cut piece of paper and Memento Summer Sky ink to makes some clouds.  The flowers are a die cut from Lawn Fawn.  The little gumdrops are made with Nuvo Drops again. 

Copics for Hello Sunshine AnnaLee....

Hair - E35, E33, E31

Skin - E000, E00, E11

Blouse & Shoes - BG09, BG07, BG05

Bench - E27, E25, E23

Grass - G46, G43, G40
