Anyway, here the project for this week:
I used the Snowflakes embossing folder on some Creative Memories metallic (silver) paper. The pattern paper is from DCWV Ulitmate Christmas Stack ( 2008), some snowflake ribbon. Also, I cut the snowflake in the center on my cricut using the Accent Essentials cart on both the metallic paper and white cardstock. The stamped sentiment was a Studio g stamp that I stamped using my versa mark, then poured some silver embossing powdered on it and heat embossed.

On this card I used the D'vine Swirls embossing folder (DCWV textured cardstock) on the background layer and I sanded the embossing with my sanding block. The stamped image is a Stampin' Up image. I borrowed a bunch a stamps from a friend awhile back and had stamped this cute little ballerina that I've been waiting to use. I colored her in with my water color pencils which I've finally gotten the hang of using different colors to create new shades/hues. I used my Nesties label 4 and cut it on my Cuttlebug and stamped the word "dance" ( from a Studio g pack I had) with my Studio g pigment ink. The image is popped up on foam squares to give it demension. I also used my cricut to cut the scalloped oval frame ( used my Creative Memories oval cutters to cut the center from it) and ran that through the CB D'vine Swirls folder and sanded it as well. I added some of the pink trim that reminded be of a ballet tutu, and added some Making Memories mini flowers to finish it off.

The LO was inspired from a May page maps sketch. Of course, I changed it up a bit to fit my style and needs for pics. I love how it turned out even if I don't get the guest DT spot. Some things to note about the LO, the two princess crowns ( one on Delaney's head and the other under the title in the center) were stamped and heat embossed. I added bling to the crowns as well, the lettering in the title were cut on my cricut, and the white letters are Thickers at I found at my local Big Lots for $2.00 ( BARGAIN!!!). Oh, the two pics that are framed I inked my Swiss Dots CB folder with my studio g pink pigment and then ran it through the CB and embossed it. I love that faded look of the background takes by the actual embossing stays true to the color.
Thanks for stopping in and wish me luck!!

Next here, is a recipe card book I made from recycled cereal boxes. I'm a huge fan of using recycled items when doing my scrapping, and there isn't a box that ever sees the garbage can in my house ( I have two milk crates full of boxes to cut up)! I've been thinking about this project for awhile now, and just finally sat down over the weekend to put it together -- I got tired of looking at the stack of recipe cards from the swaps I've been in. This album is 7" x 8". I also cut 8 1/2" x 11" page protectors to a 6 1/4" x 6 1/4" I cut the side with the opening first, then cut the bottom off. To reclose the bottom I just stapled along the the of the page protector. Not the prettiest, but I was afraid if I glued it then my cards would stick inside it and I wouldn't be able to take them out.
Here are some pics for ya:Front of book:

What I used for this project:
All papers are from the DCWV Fun in the Sun Summer 2009 Stack ( and the Summer Cardstock Stack); Offray Ribbon 1/8" ( teal and lime green); Pressed Petal blue alphas; lime green embroidery floss; green wire; and eyelets; Studio G Teal ink; and D'Vine Swirls embossing folder.
1.) I embossed the photo mats with D'Vine Swirls embossing folder on DCWV textured cardstock that has a white core. I sanded the embossed swirls to leave the white core of the paper to be exposed.
2.) Folded corner on the photo-- I created my just folding back the corner of the photo and covering the exposed back of the photo with whatever patterned paper I like.
3.) Title "String"-- was created by writing the word "string" in cursive with my Creative Memories fine ball point glue pen. Then I just followed the script with my embriodery floss laying it in the glue. Also, I did ink the edges of the word "silly" with my teal ink to give the letters a little more pop!
4.) Wire-- this was a lot of fun to use. I've never experimented with it before, so I had a lot of fun trying to see what I could do with it. I did string my letters through it by just punching a small hole in the chipboard letters. Then on the right side, and bottom of LO I tried to create my own "silly string" look with it by just bending and shaping it from eyelet to eyelet.
Also, we are trying to hit 500 followers by the end of July at The Cuttlebug Spot and we need your help. Our official sponsor Custom Crops is offering prizes to keep us motivated along the way.
