I added some of my children pictures here and there...

Some TH die cuts... on glitter paper...

Some prima rusted pastes to make a ghoulish sign... 

Some old CTMH candelabra stickers.

and some foiling...

I will have a Snap-guide with all the details by tomorrow... I will make a new post with the link...

Connie Can Crop Design Team: Dog's Life ;-)

Dear scrappers,

I am sharing with you a hybrid double layout I created using the NitWit collection Tailwags  for Connie Can Crop this month.

I call it hybrid because I printed out parts of this cute collection using my ink jet printer and colonial white card stock and cut out elements, which I used as embellishments, borders, and title for this layout. 

 A closer look to the right side:

To the left side:

I pop up some elements to add some texture:

Added some skinny washi tape to the border:

The sketch is from a "Embellish it" kit.

For my project, I decided to dust out my Fuse tool:

I made a shaker card with the fuse tool card base and some print out from the NitWit collection

I used some Creative Memories punches to cut out some HEXagons from the cardbase and added
cutouts from dogies printed from the NitWit collection:

I punched some printed buttons and the sentiment for my card:

 My fusing skills are still very rough, but I did it ;-), sequins shaker pocket and all.

For the inside I cut out another sentiment from this fun collection:

I hope you enjoy it and decide to participate in this fun challenge.

Best weekend for you all

Design Team Connie CC: Just Plain Cute

I am sharing with you another double layout I created with an SVG-file from our awesome sponsor this month, Paper Crafting World for Connie Can Crop:

I used the  Cat Sitting and ready SVG file from our sponsor, old school related papers and frames from the Artbooking cart from CTMH, you can find similar papers and this cart at Connie's webpage.

Here are some extra pictures:

Left side:

Right side:
 The frames, which I only glue down on 2 sides and did pop-up with 3D dots:
