Squirrel Proof - NOT!!!

I went and bought a new Squirrel Proof bird feeder as the old one had been damaged by the squirrels trying to get to the food. They even ate through the plastic of the old one. As you can see, the new one didn't deter them much either. The little thief figured out how to get the seed out.

I used paper from the Penny Lane stack and DCWV textured cardstock for the layout. My goal is to continue using cartridges I seldom use and for this one I used...

Campout for Squirrel on the word Not
Animal Kingdom for the Squirrl at the top
Base Camp for the title
Used some fur I had for the Squirrel tail

This is my last January 2010 layout!!! Woohoo!!! Keeping up so far this year!

I absolutely hate having my picture taken and made the mistake of getting my hubby a new camera for Christmas. He took these pictures while I was cleaning some snow off the driveway. I really need to remember that he has a camera now!!! I hope he never figures out that the cameral has a zoom on it! LOL!! I was not going to scrap these and he asked me why I didn't scrap his pictures - so here is the layout I made for them.

I used Let It Snow paper (unsure of who made), snowflakes I had laying around, and my Pazzles to create the snow shovel and title. I used the Fantast/X coloring tool (thanks OkieLadyBug for the recommendation, I love them) and Pebblies Ink to ink the letters and shovel. I then used Diamond Dust on the shovel for snow effect. The font used is CCSpills and I love it.

If you are interested in the information Okie gave about the coloring tool, she has a great video on her blog about it - here is the link to it.... http://okieladybugsscrapnmore.blogspot.com/2009/12/coloring-with-cat-eye-inks.html

Our neighbor, Jim, has snowblowed for us since Ron was in the hospital over a year ago. He and his wife, Terry, have been a huge blessing to us. My hubby took the pictures of Jim snowblowing and I decided to scrap them.

I drew the snowblower in Paint Shop Pro and then used my Pazzles to create the cut file. I used the following cartridges for the layout:

Every Day Paperdolls - Body and Clothing
Paper Doll Dress-up - Beard and Glasses
Opposites Attract - Title

I then used Delta Decorative Snow and Diamond Dust for the snow on the snowblower and Scribbles on the hat.

Yum... Ron spoils our Daisy

I have vowed I am going to keep up with my 2010 album this year and not get so far behind. At this point I am trying to finish January before February gets here.

Daisy loves it when Ron gets down on the floor and holds her bone for her. She is such a little queen and is soooooo spoiled. I used paper and ribbon that I have had for awhile and am not sure of the makers. I decided I need to begin using some of my older cartridges that I seldom (if ever) have used. For this layout I used Paper Pups and think it turned out cute.

Grandkids Goofin Around

I was scanning my grandson Jake's Facebook page and found these pictures and decided I would "borrow" them to create a layout. I decided Graphically Speaking would be the perfect cartridge for the cuts. I used DCWV Rock Star paper for the background and Prism Red and Black for the cuts. I tied a ribbon around each picture to enhance them a bit.

I am so glad my grandkids get along so great. They are very close and have a ball when they hangout together. We love when they stop in to visit as they keep us laughing the entire time. Erica will be moving an hour and one-half away from us in the fall as she will be attending Baker College to get degrees in Pastry Chef and Food & Beverage Management and we are going to miss her stopping in! We are very, very proud of her.

Sylvia and her new baby Missy

This is a layout of my Aunt and her new baby, Missy. Her daughter, Barb, got Missy for her as a companion and she is such a cutie. I drew the dog cuts as vector files using Paint Shop Pro and then used my Pazzles to make the cut files. I inked the dog cuts using Pebbles Ink. The title was also cut using my Pazzles.

Jake Skiing

The first layout of my 2010 album. This is a layout of my grandson Jake skiing. I used Winter Woodland to do the cuts for this layout. I put Jake's name on the skis using my Pazzles machine. I also used Rub Ons for the snowflakes for the first time.

Jake absolutely loves to ski and would live at Bittersweet Ski Resort if he could. His mom sometimes wishes he did as it is an hours drive from them and he wants to go often!!! He plans to go to College in Colorado so he can ski as much as possible. Jake is 14 and a true charmer.

2010 Album started

Below you will find my cover page for my 2010 album. I drew the blocks as a vector file using Paint Shop Pro and traced the layer images in Pazzles to create the blocks. The Red and Purple ones are popped with dots. The words were created using various Cricut cartridges - Home, Family and Love were cut using Home Accents and Friends and Life were cut using Ashlyn's Alphabet.

Hubby's Valentine card and files

Below you will see the cards I made for my hubby. I have included the cut files in WPC, MTC, SCAL2 and SVG format for your Personal use. I drew the heart and bow using Paint Shop Pro as a Vector file... split out the layers and imported into the programs to create the cut files. I used Coer'dinations Gemstone to cut the words and bow. I then inked the bows to give dimension. Hard to see in the pictures. The first one was made for my hubby for Valentine's Day. The one with the blue bow was made as just a sending hugs card.

The first file is in MTC format for use with the Make the Cut Program...
This file is in WPC format for use with the Pazzles Program.
This file is exported in the WPC14 format for use with Pazzles.
Here are pictures of how the cut files look.

Valentine's Cards

Below are pictures of the Valentine cards I made for my grandchildren. I used the Sweetheart cartridge for the cuts. The cards were made using DCWV pre-made cards, Core'dinations Gemstone paper, Bazzil Swiss Dots paper and Kaiser Self-Adhesive Pearls. It was fun making these two cards.

Christmas Eve

I did this layout today using the Christmas Noel cartridge. I used Mostly scrap paper that I had and wanted to use up to create the scene. The title was done with with Black Letter using DCWV The Glitter Stack. I used Stickles to decorate the trees and gel pens to add lights to some of the houses and colored the church windows. I used Scribbles to add snow to the trees.
