Let's Scrap - Harvest House

As you can see below and by the title of this post, I am taking a short break from scrapbooking our Disney pictures - trust me it's short! I have this weird quirk where it's very difficult for me to scrapbook out of order. Some days I can and others - like this particular day I just couldn't do it. This amazing sketch put out by the Let's Scrap blog just didn't work with the pictures that were next in my Disney box/envelope - so I went to what was next in my regular family album picture box/envelope. Ah ha, perfect match. So, here are our pictures from the Harvest House. This is an amazing place in Greenbluff that we have a blast visiting in the fall. They have a lot of fun fall activities as well as food! Many years we go with my sister and her family and my parents. This is a tradition we all look forward to every year!

On to the sketch:



And my take:


To Create this Layout I used:
DCWV: Autumn Splendor paper stack
Mambi Chips: "Family", "Love", "Family Activity" chipboard stickers
Fancy Pants: Meology - "Explorer" sticker
Country Life Cricut Cartridge font: "Harvest House"
Bits and Pieces Cricut Cartridge: picture pocket
(The chevron arrows came from the negative cutouts on the picture pocket)
Picturesque Cricut Cartridge: tags
Miss Kate's Cuttables: Quotes on tags
(tags and quotes were flattened, printed, and cut using Design Space)
Twine and pumpkin sticker from my stash


And now for a closer look:







Thank you so much for stopping by! Now it's your turn!

Here is my project-




To create this card I used the chair card cut from the Life is a Beach cartridge. I cut the sand and water images out from Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cartridge and added them to orginal card cut, the sand behind the chair and the water in front. The umbrella and the chair layers I also cut using the Life is a Beach cartridge. I used Design Space to size everything to where I needed it to be. "Relax" is cut out using Apha on Design Space and I used Cricut Alphabet for the "It's your Birthday". I used ink to distress the edges of everything and the paper came from DCWV's the Linen Stack.

Happy Birthday - Challenge 305

This week at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog the theme is birthdays! This is always a great theme, because who can't use birthday cards! I am always in short supply of masculine birthday cards so that is what I decided to make for this challenge!

Check it out!


 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!



Challenge #305-Birthdays
Make a project about anything to do with birthdays.


This Weeks Sponsor

And the prize is-



To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!


Here is my project-



This card comes from the Summer Celebrations Cricut Cartridge. 
I used the card feature, but then used Design Space to size the cake die cut over the card cake. That way I could add more more pattern paper to the image. It turned out to be a kind of wild card, but I like it!

I hope you are inspired and are ready to create your own birthday card for this challenge!


Thank you so much for stopping by!
