Christmas Baby layout-CE reveal

Hi fellow scrappers.. 
 I'm here today to share a Christmas themed layout I created as mu design team project for Creative Embellishments, combining the large BABY word set and Merry Christmas titles set.

 Here is what I created:
 The photos are of my grand daughter from last Christmas.. It was her first and now this year, we get to celebrate her second Christmas.. 

 I used the Christmas Light strand by cutting it into three pieces and this was a good way to get it to stretch over my layout.. I also ended up combining the large BABY word with one of the Christmas sentiments from the Merry Christmas title set.. I covered the Christmas with Nuvo Crystal drops giving it some dimension.

 I also added some ornaments to my layout.. I painted one pink and the other silver, tucking them both behind some flowers instead of them hanging..

and I created my own poinsettias using my Silhouette cameo, some white cardstock and distress oxides.. Super fun and easy..
And there is my project for todays design team reveal..  Thank you for stopping by today and checking out what I had created.. Till next time
p.s Here are the items I used to create this layout:

Guest design-More Than Words challenges

Hello scrappy peeps..
We at Creative Embellishments got together with More Than Words challenges and some of us design team members got to guest design for the MTW challenges.. 

Our challenge was as follows:

 and here is what I created for this challenge:

We were asked to use STARS on our project and I decided to use the Twinkle little star stencil from Creative Embellishments and our topic was the FUTURE so I wanted showcase my grand daughter who is transitioning from crawling to walking.  Which is something that I am very looking forward to..
How about some close ups of my layout:

I used a solid color gray cardstock for my background along with Prima Marketing papers., the smaller stacks are a great value to use on your bigger projects..  I then added lots of fun chipboard elements and finally the flowers to coordinate with the colors of my layout..

I hope you join the girls over at More Than Words challenges this month, lots of great prized to be won if you join the challenges..
Thank you for stopping by today

Tag and card set

Hi fellow crafters! 
 I'm here to share a tag and card set I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments for today's design team reveal.. and with those words, here is what I created:

How about some close ups and details:

The tag was created from some old corrugated cardboard I had hanging around the scrap room that I cut into a tag shape, size is about a 9x7 and I covered with some left over paper pieces I have from another project I had been working on, adding some snowflakes using the snowflake stencil and adding lots of fun elements.

I added the snow effect on the houses using Nuvo Crystal drops and white embossing powder that I set using my heat tool..

I wanted to create a matching card and knew it had to be a little bit simpler, so I started with the same techniques but kept everything semi-simple..

 and there we have our tag and card combo.. These were a lot of fun to create and such a relaxing project.. Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my project..
Till next time.. Hugs Nanné p.s. Here are the items I used to create my project:               
   Mini houses                                                                                snowflakes

Halloween themed tag-CEreveal

Happy Halloween fellow crafters.. I'm here to share an "Eerie!" Halloween themed tag I created as my design team project for Creative Embellishments, using some of the "fang-tastic" chippies from the Creative Embellishment store :)  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I absolutely love creating spooky yet fun crafty things, whether it be cards, scrapbook pages or even large tags.  So, with that said, here is what I created for todays design team reveal:

I had a lot of fun playing using different medias on my tag.. I started off by adding some texture paste webbing, then distress inking the edges, adding some stamping using the "distressed script and then the crackle stamps!"  tore up some papers, distressing the edges of them  to create an "old" look to my tag.

I used some Distress Oxides to color my jack-O-lanterns, gluing some black cardstock to the backs, adding some grass to my background  and I painted my treat bag with white paint because I wanted it to stand out of my scene.. I also felt like the bottom of my tag was missing something, so I used one of the mesh pieces, cutting it in half and it ended up looking like a rickety fence . "high-fived" myself for that one..LOL

I love this lamp post and it was a perfect element for my spooky tag along with these creepy trees. I ended up cutting one of the trees in half so I could use both halves on the sides of the tag and when I was looking at my almost finished tag, I felt like it needed a little something so added the branch to the top and then the word Eerie, which I painted  both black and then wrapped some spider webbing around my tag, which ended up being a great touch of detail,  definitely giving me that  "creepy" element I wanted for my tag.

and there is my large Halloween themed tag I created.. so much fun to create and you can as well, super easy.
Till next time..

P.s. Here are the chipboard elements and stamps I used to create my tag.
