Monkey LO

Another LO for my niece's scrapbook. She has a monkey themed nursery. I like the way the page turned out but I was so glad to finish it. It was a pain in the neck. I had the whole LO done on CDS and lost all of my work so I had to start all over and my Cricut kept tearing my glitter paper i was trying to cut. I was so frustrated I forgot to keep track of the sizes of my cuts. OOPS!!

Supplies used:
Cricut cart.- Zooballoo
Paper- DCWV, Martha Stewart, Colorbok
Cuttlebug folders- D'vine swirls and Tiny bubbles and Distressed stripes
Craf-T chalks (lightly brushed brown chalk over the embossing on the tan paper)
Glossy Accents on the monkeys' noses and eyes

This is another LO for my niece's scrapbook. "Baby It's Cold Outside" was handwritten. I used the green ink around the edges of the tags to make them match the green snowflakes. I used pop dots to attach the top photo mat so that the bottom photo would fit under it without having to be trimmed.

Supplies used:
Winter Lace- snowflake cut at 10" (I think)
Plantin Schoolbook-tags (I can't remember the size)
Papers were from my stash and DCWV
Martha Stewart snowflake punch
Gems from WalMart

Baby Shower gift bag

Here is the gift bag that I made for the baby shower. There was much ooohing and ahhing over it. I was very pleased with the way it turned out and happy the mommy liked it so much. (The card I made is a few posts down.) I lightly attached the project to the bag so the mommy-to-be could easily remove it and put it in the baby's scrapbook. The mommy said she is going to frame it and put it in the baby's room because they have no artwork in the room yet. Yes, the theme of the nursery is sheep since they raise them.

Supplies used:
Cricut cart.- Twinkle Toes (heart and layers were all cut at 9")
                    Animal Kingdom (lambs and layers were cut at 4" and 3")
Papers are Colorbok and The Paper Studio
Cuttlebug folder-D'vine Swirl
Martha Stewart colored pencils (for the nose and lines on the legs)
Martha Stewart black writing pen (to color the eyes)
Inkssential glossy accents (nose and eyes)
Tsunkineko Sheer Shimmer Spritz- sparkle over the entire project
White gift bag from Wal-Mart
