Owl I Want For Christmas :)

I'm so smitten with the "Winter Owl" stamp set from Lawn Fawn! You can see the fall card I used the owl on HERE. Today, I wanted to incorporate the holiday sentiment and make a tag for one of my hubby's gifts.

I cut the scalloped heart and layers from the Sweethearts cricut cartridge at 4.5" as my tag base and I love how it turned out!

ACK! Isn't it so cute. I have red/white wrapping paper that will really make it pop. I did some reverse stamping with owl to make another owl facing the opposite direction. Very easy to do, with a little patience ;) They are each paper pieced with grey/kraft cardstock and red/green patterned papers. You know I couldn't resist adding googly eyes!

Another thing that took a little bit of patience, but SO easy - was masking the sentiment so I could stamp it out horizontally under my little owl sweethearts. The finishing touch was adding the itty bitty heart stamp to the centers of the snowflake background.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Hope you had a wonderful holiday.. I'm ready to pack away the fall decorations and start singing carols ;)

I'm sharing my tag at the Lawnscaping Challenge

and at Paper Issues - Holiday Happy theme  :)

There is no doubt..

I love how devoted my husband is to making our nursery an awesome room for our future child. I had a special picture of him I wanted to scrapbook, putting the finishing touches on the custom made wainscotting panels. The one photo sketch at Artful Delight this month was perfect:

November Layout Sketch Challenge ASC #26

Here's my layout:

I used woodgrain and blueprint patterned papers that have been in my stash for a while. I added some pops of yellow from the color combo challenge at Scraptastic (when blue skies are grey inspiration).

I've had these bingo cards and Sassafrass embelishments in my stash for a while too. It felt great to use them, finally.  I'm sharing this page at Lasting Memories because I also used my "Loving Words" stamp set by Ali Edwards to embellish my papers/picture.

I used my EK Success "binding edge" punch and mini heart punch to embellish the woodgrain strips on the top and bottom of my layout. I may go back and add handwriting journaling to the blue paper :)

Thanks for stopping by today.. if I don't post again HAPPY THANKSGIVING! :)


If The Shoe Fits ;)

I loved the card sketch at Artful Delight this month:

November Card Sketch Challenge ASC #26

I paired it with the cool color combo at Paper Smooches:

I dug through my cardstock scraps and used them in strips on my card base. I stamped the high heels from the "Pretty Momma" set with the congratulations sentiment from the "Sentiment Sampler":

Of course I had to add a little mini bling to dress it up :)

I think the black stitching finishes it off. Perfect card for a girlfriend with big news to celebrate :)
