Duck Hunting Birthday Card

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you are having a great start to your week!! Fall is just right around the corner I can't believe its already mid September!!

My Brother In Laws birthday was last week, so I made him a birthday card. For this card, I used the file
Hunting 1 file from Kadoodle Bug Designs.




My brother in Law is a big duck hunter and loves all things duck related, so I figured I'd make a duck card. I inked the background with some shades of blue, purple, and pink to create a sunrise or sunset look.  Then I stamped some trees from the Lovely as a Tree Stampin Up set to create a background.  I also inked some of the water with the shades in the sky so it looked like it was reflecting on the water. To finish the card off I added some ducks flying in somewhat of a V in the sky and then added some cattails and water in the front. I hope this card inspires your creativity. : )


Below is a complete list of supplies and materials used to complete this project:

Fall Scrapbook Page

Hey Deer Friends,


Happy September!! Fall is right around the corner. I don't know what the weather is like where you're living, but the past few weeks our temps have been feeling like Fall. So with Fall being around the corner I decided to make a Fall scrapbook page.

 To create this Fall layout, I used a combination of some files 
Happy Fall Y'allWoodland FoxesColor Me Cute & Cutie Katoodles Sailor Doggie from Kadoodle Bug Designs.



As I mentioned last week, on my previous post that my sister thinks I'm a photographer. She had me take fall pictures of her family a few years ago and they all were wearing red and black plaid flannel shirts. So I wanted to make a Fall Scrapbook page that incorporated the fall colors and the colors that they were wearing in the photos.

To create this layout, I used the stump in the Woodland Fox files and then I put the Bears on the stump with their backs to each other. My nieces actually did a pose like this for me when I was taking pictures, so I wanted to recreate that with the bears. I used the bears from the Color me Cute file, but I put on them the outfit from the Happy Fall Y'all file. Then I wanted to put a puppy in the layout, so I used the cute puppy from the CK Sailor Doggie File.

I've been super obsessed with plaid for the last year. I think it all started when I was Christmas shopping for my Sister In Laws Christmas gift. She wanted a plaid blanket, so around then I just became obsessed with that plaid look. So for a while I had wanted the My Favorite things plaid background builder stamp, but I just couldn't bring myself to purchase it because it was pretty pricey to me. Then Simon Says Stamp had a Customer Appreciation coupon they put out for $10.00 off, so I hopped on their website and got that stamp set. The first time I used that stamp set was on the bears shirts to give them the plaid flannel look. I just loved it!! I think I'll be using it lots more in the future so keep an eye out for it. 




I hope you enjoyed this Fall Layout as much as I did.  : )

Christmas Scrapbook Layout

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you had a good week!! Did you get to see the Total Solar Eclipse on Monday?? I got to watch it in my front yard and oh it was so spectacular!! I happen to live in the town that had the longest duration of darkness. I had heard so many people talking about not taking pictures during the eclipse because it would ruin your camera so I didn't get any pics. : ( I wished I would have set it up and taken pics whenever it was dark. That diamond ring though was so beautiful!! : ) My town happens to be in the path for the next Total Solar Eclipse in 7 years, so maybe I can get some pics then. 

 To create this Christmas layout, I used a combination of files 
Cutie Katoodles Christmas Dream Bears & Cutie Katoodles-Winter Hot Cocoa Bear from Kadoodle Bug Designs.



I have a Canon Camera and my sister thinks I'm a photographer, so a couple of Christmases ago she wanted me to take pictures of her family. She saw on Pinterest Christmas photos of some children tying up their parents with lights and putting some duck tape on their mouths. So I recreated that scene for her and she loved it. So for tonight's scrapbook layout I created that scene with some polar bears. I wanted it to look like they had tied up their parents with lights and duck taped their hands and mouths. I wanted a title for the top and I found this one and thought it went perfectly with what was going on in the photo. 




I hope you enjoyed this Christmas layout. Come back next week for one more Scrapbook page.  : )

Kitty Cat Scrapbook Page

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you had a great week!! I've been working on some scrapbook pages the last few days, so I'm excited to show you one of the pages I've been working on. Last September, I got a kitten and he is full of personality!! He doesn't like to drink from the water bowl,  he only drinks from the faucet. He's so playful and he makes the cutest little chirping noises. He has these plastic apple ornaments that he plays with and carries around by the strings. It's so cute watching him carry them around. So I figured I'd make a scrapbook page to put some pictures of him in. 

 To create this layout, I used a combination of files 


I wanted the layout to boyish since my cat Bruno is a Boy. So I used shades of black, green, and Blue. I put some fish, yarn, and pawprints to give it the cat touch. To create the cat that is laying across the top of the photo mat I meshed two files together. I just used the Got Candy Cat and just added the leg from the dog in the Thank you Birthday Dogs file. I wanted another cat, so I added the Cutie Katoodles Black Cat at the top. To finish off the layout, I added a paw print to the bottom of the page. I'm going to use it journal, but I could also use it to cut a picture in that shape.

I hope you enjoyed this kitty layout. Come back next week for another Scrapbook page.  : )

I added bows to the dogs ears, a pearl necklace and little purple nails to finish off the girly touch.

Mrs Claus Christmas Card

Hey Deer Friends,


Good Evening, I hope you are having a fantastic weekend so far. I spent the morning going to yard sales with my Mom. We found some really good deals. : )

Yesterday, kicked off one week of Christmas in July Hallmark Movies. I just love watching all the Hallmark Christmas shows. I always look forward to seeing all the new ones in November and December.  So I figured it'd be cool to make a Christmas themed card, so we can think about cooler weather. I'm ready for it to cool down a bit!! How about you?? For this card, I used the file
Cutie Katoodles Mrs Claus Bear from Kadoodle Bug Designs.




I decided to mix some different Christmas pattern papers for this card. The red one I got in a little 6x6 stack last Black Friday. And the white one with Holly on it I got at a yard sale last summer for a nickel. I thought it fit well with her holly on the hat.
