Let It Snow

A warm Hello to everyone today. The new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs is "Non-Traditional Christmas Colors" Well I think pink and aqua can be considered non- traditional. I started out with the wonderful Step Card for the Base I used the Nautical Wheeler Doily behind the main part and the center of the doily on the front corner. I layered Snowflake 5 on top of it. I used the Santa's Laundry and took the pants and long johns off the line. I then  hung the mittens and socks from the Christmas Knick Knacks set on the line. I placed the Snowflake Mesh Border along the bottom. Added the Let it Snow stamped image and place some pearls on it and on the snowflakes of the border.   This was fun changing out some of the clothing on the line giving  a whole new look to the Santa's Laundry. Please join us in this challenge for a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Also check out all the inspiration from our design team at Have a wonderful crafty week.

Spring Tag

Hi to all you Cheery Lynn fans out there. This weeks challenge is "Tag Your It".  Ok I got a bit carried away making a Tag but had a lot of fun with it. We do Christmas cards in the summer so thought I would turn it around and do a spring tag in the winter.  I started with the Horizon Coved Rectangle as the tag. I then added the French Lattice Sm. The Ornamental Gate looked great in front of the lattice. I used the Ivy Corner Flourish along the top corner and place two beautiful Shasta Daisy's in front of it. The centers of the daisy's are from Embellishment #1.  For the Vase I added the Tiny Bubbles Border to the center of it. I then inked it up and added glossy accents to make it look like glass. I arranged some Baby's Breath and Wheat Heads in the vase. I used the Birds of Earth & Sky on the fence and flourish. The two cute little dragonflys are from the Tiny Things with Wings.  So pop on over to and join the fun.

Fall Time

Welcome back. Today I share with you  a card that I created for the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge. "Autumn Colors" is the theme this week . I started out by  using the Chicken Wire on the base. The Sunflower and Daisy Strip made beautiful fall flowers.  I used the Orchid die for the stems and leaves on the flowers. I used Dimensional Sm  Leaves # 1 and Wheat Heads as filler along the bottom of the flowers. I then added the Clock w Angel Wing to the top right corner. I cut the clock out of thin chipboard and cut another one in pattern paper to layer on top. Well that is it for this week I hope you get out your Cheery Lynn dies and get creative for the "Fall Color Challenge". Would love to see you join and share your creations with us. By joining you have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree. Have a wonderful week creating.

Pine Grosbeak 2014 Calender

A warm hello to you today. Just wanted to share with you a  calendar that I made at "Croppin With The Chicks" scrapbooking retreat a couple of weeks ago. I started with a 12x12 Board and built up from there. I especially liked how the flower arrangement turned out on the top left. The new wheat die from Cheery Lynn Designs is a new favorite of mine. It makes for a beautiful filler. With the addition of a few feathers to go with the birds I was totally happy with the way it all came together .

Fall Harvest

Hello to all you Cheery Lynn followers out there. This weeks challenge is " Give Thanks". So today I share with you a fall harvest card using the new  Wheat Heads and the new Shuttered Window w/ Flower Box. I started with the Shuttered Window w/ Flower Box as my focal point. I then placed some wall paper behind the window  as you are looking from the outside in. One of the Owls w/ Gears sits quietly on the flower box with a couple of the Tiny Fanciful Flourishes  around him. Thinking of fall harvest and giving thanks I added a couple of Fall Pumpkins and some Wheat Heads behind them.  A few of the Dimentional Sm Leaves #1 behind and in front of the wheat heads made for a nice display in the bottom left corner. The sentiment Hello was covered with glossy accents to make it shiny and stand out a little more. These new dies are a wonderful addition to Cheery Lynn Designs. For your chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree join the "Give Thanks  Challenge". You can also browse the Cheery Lynn Inspiration Blog to see some of our Design Team members wonderful creations.
