Warm and Cozy layout-DC reveal

Hi everyone..
It's Nanné here to share my layout that I created as my design team project for our "Warm and Cozy" die cut challenge..

Here's what I created:
I found these digital papers by Cartabella and thought they were perfect for this challenge..
I printed the papers for the background and then for the die cuts, I flooded the die cuts with the prints in the SIL software, then did the print and cut with my Silhouette Cameo..

How about a few close ups and some details:
 The photo is a bit dark, but its of  my hubby and our beagle dog, Bemsky. Our dog is such a hugger, as soon as you sit down on the couch, he's all over you :)

I actually created these book die cuts myself in the SIL software..

I also added some big brown snowflakes (to match my color scheme), the window in the background to make look like you were warm and cozy inside :) 


because its a masculine layout, I decided to add some stars and a few hearts, plus snow flakes cause the photo was taken last week while we were having a snow storm :)

and there you have my warm and cozy layout for this weeks die cut challenge reveal..
Thank you for stopping by today and do join in on the fun with us girls..
Just look for the die cut link on the side bar where you will be re-directed to the main post and link up your project..

Till next time fellow scrappers..
hugs

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Warm and Cozy

Hi and welcome to Stuck On U Sketches. This is Julie from Cards by Cricut with my project for the Design Team Die Cut challenge - Warm and Cozy. This challenge gave me a little struggle at first because I was unsure how I was going to describe warm and cozy in a die cut. And this Winter has been pretty chilly here. With temps never getting out of the 30's, that can be cold. Then I thought about what makes me all warm and cozy and I came up with a
nice hot coffee or cocoa warming up your hands. So I came up with this cute card. I used the Cricut Lite cartridge Love A Latte. I cut the cafe cup at 4-1/2". Cutting it out on my Explore made it so easy to do plus it cut it so perfectly. I then put the card together. There is a detailed list on my blog.
     So get your supplies together and make your own warm and cozy project and do what I did if you can't think of anything. Ask yourself, "What makes you all warm and cozy?" Then get your project together. And don't forget to try for our top 3 competition. Thanks so much for coming to our blog and we all hope you have a great weekend.

January 23 Die Cut Challenge Reveal, Warm and Cozy

  Welcome to another Friday challenge!
Today is our Die Cutting day and we have something just right
for the season...

...Warm And Cozy...

   You can think winter if you'd like, like I've done with my project
but you can also think of doing projects with snuggling up
a new baby. Scrapping a page with a loved one. Anything that
gives you the warm fuzzies will be great to share with us!
   I've had these snuggly critters in the Silhouette collection forever and always looked at them but finally just now used them! I had fun coloring all of my die cut pieces (other then the multiple background layers) with my Spectrum Noir markers and then adding some white gel pen for texture. 



   With the sun hiding in the mornings it's hard to see the glitter details added around the project. Just a bit and some more white gel pen doodling. To make my background pop a bit more I added 4 layers, but very worth it! As a side note as well, you can click on the photos to enlarge them and see the details I added with the pens to my critters.


    Thanks for visiting us today and looking forward to seeing your creations!

Happy Santa

Hey y'all! It's Stephanie here today from Bits & Pieces (& Scraps) and I am sharing my layout using the January 16 sketch. This amazingly fun sketch by Leah was so great to work with!! I loved the Snow Village collection from Pink Paislee the moment I laid eyes on it! And I fortunately had some left over to create with!!
 

     I cut a rectangle out of the polka dot paper then laid the script paper horizontally over it. The trees on the right were cut from a piece of patterned paper from pink Paislee.

 
 
 
Everything is from Pink Paislee with the exception of the cork word; the sequins; the pennant tag & the "Santa" tab. I used my Fiskars punch to create the glittery snowflakes.
Yes, this photo is from 2006, but I just found it the other day while cleaning out a drawer! So glad I did too. I love looking back at the kids when they were little bitties!
I hope you all find the time to create with this awesome sketch. Link up with us in the sidebar if you do!   

Thanks for visiting!

Deep Freeze Festival

Good morning! It's Charlotte here with you today to share a layout I did using the Jan. 16th sketch! My family went to the Deep Freeze Festival this year as my youngest daughter was performing there. I had no idea this Festival even existed before this year, but I tell you, it sure was a super fun time! The sketch that Leah designed calls for 3 photos! I had such a hard time narrowing it down, but I managed! So here's my layout....
 
 
 
This layout was actually created in two different parts. Here's what I mean...
 
 
First I created the background on this piece of patterned paper to follow the outline of the sketch.
 
Then I created the next part on a transparency that I had in my stash.  ( The background is really clear, but my kitchen floor wasn't lol) But you get the idea! :) Then all I did was lay the transparency on top of the background and voila! A layout!
 

 
I have just one more little hint to share with you today. See that snowman. Well, he wasn't that color to start with. He came from a very old collection of Basic Grey and was red, green and brown colored. I wanted to use him, but he did not co-ordinate, so out came the markers and presto...a matching snowman for my layout! If you're ever left with some stickers or embellishments that don't match anything...remember...they can be altered to fit! :)

Hope you enjoyed looking at my creation today! We'd love to see yours as well, so please do link up your layouts on the current sketch icon found on the side bar!

Happy Scrapping Friends!
