Day four of Christmas Projects - Team Canada Mittens Card

Our family still loves our Team Canada mittens so I thought they would be cute on a holiday card.

This card was quick to put together so I think it will be one to mass produce. I used a sentiment that would be appropriate for all even those who do not celebrate Christmas.

Day three of Christmas projects - Merry Fitness

Welcome! Today's card is for the girls I work out with regularly. Love them and thought this funny sentiment would be perfect for the zumba ladies.

Merry Fitness and a Happy New Rear!

Day two of Christmas Projects - A shaker card

Hello and welcome! I love this funny sentiment as my neighbours enjoy drinking prosecco.

I confess, I watched a few YouTube videos to figure out how to create a shaker card and I played with the Design Space program to write the sentiment and slice out the champagne glass. I used tiny white beads to look like bubbles instead of sequins.

I think I'm hooked. I need to buy more foam tape!
See you Monday for Day Three of Christmas Projects!

Day one of Christmas Projects - Pikachu card

Welcome! I'm so happy to be making cards again this year!

This card is for my children's cousins. They are crazy for Pokemon Go. The card will have their Christmas gift inside.

I also made this Pokemon inspired Christmas card in July when everyone was gag over the app.

Please come back tomorrow. I will share my first ever shaker card. I have seen so many amazing ones posted that I had to try and create one.

Twelve Days of Christmas Projects 2016!!!

Ok. Let's start off with an excuse/confession. I really have not been scrapping this fall at all. This is the reason.

She loves to eat paper just as much as I like to create cards and layouts. She treats my scrap room as an all you can chew buffet! B-U-T, I still want to have a Twelve Days of Christmas Projects series on my blog. Am I crazy?

Probably. Please stop back in tomorrow for Project #1!!!

How durable is vinyl cut with your Cricut?

A friend asked me recently if she thought she could use vinyl on her speed boat. "Would it last in the water?" She wanted to cut out the boat's registration number because they must be displayed in Canada.

This is a photo of an oval cut in Scotchcal 220 vinyl three years ago. This oval, cut in non-permanent vinyl, is on my POOL! The pool used to have plastic covers but eventually they all broke. The vinyl has lasted longer. Keep in mind, I also live in "Winter-peg", Canada. The vinyl has withstood the elements of nature as well as the "element" of my children splashing in the pool.

Puppy Pictures

I haven't been crafting for awhile but I have a wonderful excuse! Our family has adopted a puppy! She is 11 weeks old and her breed is mixed. We named her Chloe and our family is completely smitten. Her mother was brought in to a local rescue in labour. Her puppies, including Chloe, were born later that day. My craftroom is gathering dust this week as I am busy with her training.

Here are some shameless puppy pics.

The other thing I have realised this week is that I need puppy themed scrapbooking supplies and lots of them as we have been snapping photos like crazy!

My son thinks we have upped our game when it comes to family photos with this adorable new addition.
