I always jokingly tell my husband that coloring is my therapy. It wasn't until just recently that I read that it is actually helpful and used to help cancer patients and more. 
You can read a little more about that HERE and HERE.

So, not only is Sherri Ann Baldy providing us with toadally cute images, she is helping us relax and reduce our stress. THANK YOU SHERRI!!! 

Snowflakes are Cricut images that were cut out with my Cricut Explore.

My Besites Frog Fairy Card

Hello! Today I have the honor of being a Guest Designer for the
 My Besties Germany Challenge Blog.

I used Frog Fairy (IMG826) which I purchased at the My Besties Shop
She is a newer image that I fell in love with instantly.  I mean, who wouldn't love a Frog Fairy!?!

I used the Water Lilly Template from Sandra's Scrapshop. By welding two of the bottom pieces together in Cricut Design Space I was able to turn the lily pad into a card. 

I used Goosebumps texture spray on the lily pad to make it look shiny and wet. It's a little hard to tell by the picture, but it looks pretty cool in person. The edge of the lily pad are inked with Tim Holts gathered twigs Distress Ink.

The Water Lilly Template comes with the beautiful flower. I was use some pink scrap paper to cut the flower out and then inked the edges with Tim Holz spun sugar and gathered twigs Distress Ink. Each layer of the flower is attached with foam tape to give the flower a little more depth. 

That gorgeous little dragonfly is an embellishment from Renea's Bouquets. I love Renea's store! So many pretty embellishments. 

I used the easel card technique to make the Frog Fairy  stand up. 

 She lays down nicely for mailing.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will check out the My Besties Germany Challenge Blog and enter your fabulous My Bestie projects.

Steampunk Snowman Layout

Hello! I finally finished the 4th page of my husbands scrapbook. 
I'm a bad wife! I was supposed to have the entire book done Oct. 1st. 
Thankfully my husband is a very patient man =)

I used the My Bestie Steampunk Snowman image. He is colored with Copic markers. 

The gears were out with my Cricut and then distressed with Tim Holtz rusty hinge, wild honey ad gathered twigs distress inks. I used a spellbinders embossing folder for the background and distressed using the same colors of distress inks. 

I am going to get this scrapbook finished...SOMEDAY!

Glitter My Bestie Bulbs For SVG Saturday

It's SVG Saturday on the My Besties Facebook page. 
This week I made glitter bulbs with my 4 year old. 

I found some Glitter-it a few months back at Walmart, on clearance. 
I followed the instructions on the back of the Glitter-It to make these bulbs. 
It is super easy. Wash the bulb with a water/vinegar mix, dry, add Glitter-It and coat the inside, let it drip for about 10 seconds, then add glitter and shake it up.

Echo (my 4 year old) picked the colors of glitter and held the bulb while I poured in the glitter. 

I was so excited to see that it had snowed the night I got these done.
 It made for some really pretty pictures. 

Here's a list of the SVGs I used...

Thank you for stopping by. 
I hope you've been inspired to have some crafting fun with your little ones.

Getting Ready For Christmas With The Cutting Cafe

This week at The Cutting Cafe the Design Team got to choose any file we wanted. 
I love these kind of weeks. The team always comes up with some amazing projects.

I decided to start getting ready for Christmas with my projects. 
FYI...Christmas is sneaking up on us! Only 7 weeks, which is 52 and 1/2 days.  HERE is an official Christmas Countdown Clock just in case you can't keep your day's straight like me.

Ok, on to my projects. I made a gift bag using the Gift Bag - Large file. 
This bag is crazy easy to put together. The best part about this file is that you can use it for ANY occasion. Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Just Because, Baby Showers, House get the idea. 

The gorgeous papers I used are designed by Shellie Geigle. You can find them and the 2 other fabulous paper packs that she designed at J&S Hobbies and Crafts
These papers are AWESOME quality. 

I couldn't find a snowflake border that I liked in Cricut Design Space so I made my own using different snowflake images. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz gathered twigs Distress Ink and then embellished the snow fakes with flat back pearls from Glitz N Glam Girly Boutique.

I used seam binding from Gone Artsy to make the bow. 

The holly is a die from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. The set is called Holiday Greens.
I embellished the holly with tiny red puff balls.

Because I LOVE Christmas, Regina's files and these papers from J&S Hobbies and Crafts so much I had to do a second project. For this one I used the 3D Christmas Ornament Set

This is another super easy project. I love how they turned out. The file also comes with a box for your ornaments. Since I will be keeping these myself, I did not make the box. I will store them with the rest of my Christmas decor.

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the Design Team inspiration post on The Cutting Cafe blog on the 7th. If you leave a comment on the post you will be entered to win 3 free Cutting Cafe files of your choice.

Have a great week!
