Throwback Thursday Challenge! - Episode~54

Hi All,

Well here is my entry for today. Emma at My Creative Time posts a challenge every Thursday. She calls it Throw Back Thursdays. Its very cool pretty much what she does is that she will ask you to use an Older Cricut Cartridge to make a certain project. This week she asked that we make a 6x6, 8x8 or 12x12 Scrapbook page using the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge. I thought this was pretty cool because even though I own it... I had actually never used it.

The Recipe for this Scrapbook page is:
Cricut Markers
Cinnamon & Eucalyptus Stickles
DCWV Card Stock
Ribbon from Michaels

Sketchity Sketch by Sarah!

Sarah one of the many talented designers at My Paper Tree House provided a easy sketch to get some layouts started for a Challenge that ends this sunday evening. The Challenge was to create a layout using the sketch that she provided and you could win some a grab bag of Jillibean Soup goodness. This is the first Challenge that I have participated in so I am very excited. the picture is a birth annoncement that i was given recently and I always scrapbook these because it is a good addition to my scrapbook especially when it is a new baby born into my family. I did remove the last name of the baby for the privacy of the family. I hope you enjoy my Layout:

The Recipe for this layout is:
Bazzill Cardstock
Ribbon from Michaels Craft Store

The Perfect Gift

I think Diaper cakes are the perfect gift for a baby shower. You can be as creative as you want and match the theme of the baby shower. It one of my favorite things to do. Here is one that i made for Hansel's Cousins Baby Shower. They had an animal theme. Under the bark of this tree it's filled with tons of Diapers and other goodies. I will also add that this was my tallest diaper cake ever!

Yep I make invitatons too!

So here is an invitation that I made recently. Sorry for the Blurring but I am trying to keep peoples information private :) This invitation was complete pieced together with cardstock that was cut out with my Cricut Expression. The writing is printed on vellum.
