I printed out Have An Egg-cellent Day on my computer and used my SCAL enabled Cricut to cut out the pennant flag. I used the Cricut Storybook Cartridge for the E. It is just a fun card.

Take Out Tuesday Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer SVG Download Ocotober 19

Hi Dandi Crafters! Before we get to today's Take Out Tuesday, I would appreicate it if you took sometime out of your busy day and looked to the right side of the blog torward the top, see the Top 100 Digital Stamping Sites button. If you could take a moment and click it. I would be every so thankful. When the clicks going in says 100 I will put up a freebie.

Now back to this weeks Take Out Tuesday.....

Welcome back to another Take Out Tuesday. When you follow a blog you usually do so because over all you enjoy the blog, however there are times when check that blog and a post jumps out at you and you say,"YES!! This is EXACTLY why I follow this blog!", you are happy, energized, and full of ideas. This is ONE OF THOSE POST. If you follow my blog and are here on Tuesday or Wednesday, you are HAPPY (and Thank you for following my blog), if you don't follow my blog and you have arrived on Thursday or later, you're going, "Ohh I am so bummed, this is so cute!" (you should sign up to follow my blog so you don't miss anymore Take Out Tuesdays). Either way let's get to today's Take Out Tuesday, a happy, Red Nose Reindeer.
Rudolph as he is shown here is about 4.5 inches tall. It was saved in SCAL 1 so can it be used in either SCAL 1 or SCAL 2. It has both the native Scut file and SVG files so you can use Make the Cut too. You will find terms of use along with copyright in the folder too. For the first time I am also including the sample picture. There are many layers and it always helps me to look at picutes. LOL
The zip file includes:
•Base reindeer (shown in dark brown. See the antlers)
•Reindeer Collar (shown in dark red)
•Reindeer Head (shown in light brown)
•Bell Base (shown in black)
•Bells (shown in silver)
•Reindeer Snout (shown in light brown)
•Nose(shown in glitter red)
•Ears (shown in light pink)
•Tongue (shown in light pink)

Now to discuss was is not there. There are no eyes. The eyes and brows are cut outs in the head. I placed a 1 inch circle behind the head to get black eyes. Then I highlighted with a white gel pen. There is no mouth, again I used a circle behind the snout which contains a mouth cut out. After I positioned the circle behind the snout I then glued the tongue to the circle in the mouth area. To get the look on my reindeer I used pop dots to raise the ears, bell bases, snout and nose. I used my glitter paste, which is discussed in this post, for the nose.

I hope you enjoyed it. Take Out Tuesday is provided for my followers on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, on Thursday we throw out the left overs.

MyGrafico Challenge No # 70: Now And Then We Go To Disney Layout


Hi Dandi Crafters! Over at the MyGrafico Challenge Blog today's challenge is, "Anything Goes". The Design Team members and I used Clocks and Watches by Sara Paris. We also worked with Cross Hatched Paper by Woofy World. Be sure to check out all the designers at MyGrafico.




I found the theme of the digital stamps and papers really enjoyable use. Time is not a subject that I scrap about or even really think about as theme. However, it is the passing of time, to treasure a moment in time, that drives the whole scrapbooking industry.

My husband and I have gone to Disney World throughout our entire relationship. It was one of the first trips we took together as a couple when we started dating. We got married at Disney World and honeymooned there. We went to Disney when I was pregnant with every single one of my 4 kids. and took each one back before they were 1 and have taken them pretty much every year since.

Most people think of Disney World as timeless and never changing. I however think of Disney as a member of the family and see it  much as I do my children and my marriage, forever changing and growing and developing through phases. One of my favorite things to do when we go to Disney World every year is look and see how the castle has changed. I have seen the castle with a lot of different looks, sort of like my boys with their hair cuts. LOL That is why I did a layout of Cinderella's Castle as it appeared in July 2010 and in June of 2005.

MyGrafico Challenge No # 69: Under The Big Top


Hi Dandi Crafters! Come One, Come All, to the Greatest MyGrafico Challenge Blog. Today's challenge, "Pop It Up" add some dimension to your Card or LO or Altered item
The Design Team members and I used Joyful Clowns Stamp by Delik Design Studio. We also worked with Circus Paper Pack by Cupcake Cuties. Be sure to check out all the designers at MyGrafico.


A challenge, that is putting it mildly! Clowns and Circus that is not the type of challenge that would normally gravitate to. That is exactly why I like being a design team. I can stretch and grow and be challenged out of my comfort zone! "What the heck am I going to do for this challenge, probably an uninspiring card." Those were my first thoughts. After panic past I came up with a FANTASTIC idea. I honestly don't know how I came up with this idea. LOL it is like an ace crafter possessed me for this challenge. LOL. This idea wasn't scrap lifted. I am not saying that there isn't other cards out there similar to this one, there might be. I just haven't seen them that I can recall.


I scored and folded yellow card stock to form a the base of the card and use the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder to give it some texture. I then used my SCAL enabled Cricut to cut out the tent top from the Circus Paper Pack. The tent top was created in the image editor. I also cut out a yellow tent to form the tent base of my card. I used pop dots to get the red tent raised some so the sliding doors could pass unhindered by the tent top and scalloped awning. The doors are just 2 card stock pieced folded over the yellow base card so they would slide. I used circles cut in yellow for the awning. I embellished the doors with red polka dot grosgrain ribbon, yellow buttons and red rhinestones adding more dimension. I used SCAL to cut out the Hooray pennant flag. The pole the tip of a bamboo skewer painted white. I also used scal to cut out the clowns so they would have a sticker look to them. I then used pop dots to add them to the front of the tent. I used my image editor to create the inside stamp sentiment. I don't know if this is the best card I ever made but it is certainly the best card I ever designed....LOL

Post It Notebook for Halloween


Hi Dandi Crafters, over at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats it is my turn to host the challenge and serve the winning guest blog candy. Make sure to pop over and show me some LOVE. LOL This months challenge is to make a notebook. Bind it, cinch it, alter it, post it, make it large or mini, it does matter just make a notebook. I am giving away the following blog candy.

I made a cute little Halloween Post It Notebook. I love notebooks, altered, mini, composition books, whatever, I love them. This is very easy to make. I used a couple of pieces of Halloween paper. It came in a variety pack , 8 sheets for a $1.00 at Target. It was so generic it didn't even have a manufacturer's name on it. LOL But it was cute so, "hey, there are worse ways to spend a $1." LOL I glued the papers to either side of card stock to give the notebook some weight. I decorated the front with orange grosgrain ribbon. the scallop circle and cat are from Cricut Cartridge Create A Critter. The Cat is cute at 1.25 inches high and the the scallop circle is 1.50 inches. I inked the sides of the notebook with black ink and the scallop circle with orange ink. I used glitter paste on the bow tie and nose. The eyes are 2 tiny rhinestone, no bigger than a thought. LOL I then added a Halloween themed post it notepad to inside.

Here's the how to scoop:
•cardstock, double sided is best but not required.
•Cut card stock at 3.25 inches high by 8.5 inches long if you are going to round the corners as I did.
•Score at 4, 4.5, 5 inches
•Cut 2 slits from the first score line of 4 to the third score line at 5 taking note to center the slits from the middle.
•Then fold mountain fold the first and last score line with the middle score being a valley. Glue the last mountain fold down to the back and pop out the slit middle so it forms a slot to hold your mini pen.
I can't wait to see your entries over at Sugar Sweet Paper Treats
