And now on to my creation....

I decided to create a layout and I love the "pocket scrapbook!" look, so decided to do that using the cute cut file by Too cute by Jessica and using the " Baked with Love!" stamp set..

how about some close ups:


stamped the "Baked with Love" sentiment to a tag I found in the SIL store, added the whisk to the top using foam tape square..

This is a photo of my daughter and she is like her mom, loves to cook and bake.. ( I must of done something right..LOL)  

I also used the "Lil Baker" sentiment from the cutting file and added it to banner..
plus, I created some over sized cupcakes to decorate this card..

and wanted to make the cute little girl look my daughter, so added brown hair and green eyes..which the center of the eyes are the cheek dots that I just cut them out of green cardstock and added them to the eyes.. and I also added one of the muffin tops to the top of the bowl, to look like dough..

and of course, I had to add a photo her chocolate muffins..
Notice anything missing from this part of the layout?.. yeah, the little brown center to my flower
and you'll never guess where I found it..

see it under his nose?...LOL  
I was looking for it everywhere and when I looked down at my pup, he was holding it for me..LOL


thank you for hopping by today and your next stop will be:


Here is the entire line up in case you get lost :)

I found the cutest sled in the SIL store, decided to heat emboss the "metal" pieces of the sled with Rangers Antiquities Rust embossing powder and added a wood print paper to the "wood" pieces :)   Used my Martha Stewart twig and branch punch to create the wreath portion and tucked in some gold flower centers here and there.. finally adding the gold ribbon bow..
The papers I used for my card are by KaiserCraft: St. Nicholas


 Stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" (from the Simply Christmas stamp set) onto one of the Tag images from the Tag it Stamp set, using Brushed Corduroy distress ink and finally adding a few drops of gold stickles for a little detail..

Welcome to the Craft It Up and Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas

CDD- One stamp set



$25 gift certificate
The more you link up, the better chance you have to win.  
Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

.I've been working so many holiday projects, be it Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, that I felt like I needed to do something a little different.

Here is what I created for this linky party...

I am a Huuuuuuge "Game of Thrones!" fan.. 
I've watched every episode of every season and now my son and I are reading the books.. So, I needed a book marker :) 
 In the beginning of the book, I love the story of the Old Wise tree that is white with red leaves, plus I had to add the shield, crown and sword since its all based on mid-evil fictitious history :)

I added the stamp to the shield " Always and Forever!" since its how I feel about my love for these books :)  
I also though to write in white gel pen "Winter is coming!" (from the book) but it did not turn out as I had visioned it :)  Grrrrr

My pretty white tree.. 
I did a print and cut around edge with this one, adding a white edge (in the SIL software) to the red leaves giving them a great look and of course had to add some Bling, whats a crown if it doesn't have bling right?

Here is the stamp I used:
You can buy this stamp set HERE

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!

Happy Scrappin ya'll :)
