Stair Step Card

Happy Monday!!  Today is my day to show you a project for www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com.   I am still working with the "Beary Scary" set she made a few weeks ago.  It has so much to play with, I am getting a LOT of use out of it.

I love stair step cards, you actually can create a little scene. - So cute!

I used the print and cut file that is one of the options that Nikki has with her files.  So even if you don't paper piece, you can print these cute little guys out and cut them out by hand or with a machine.

The trees in the background were cut from the Paper Doll Dress Up cricut cartridge, everything else is from "Beary Scary".

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.

Halloween Layout

Happy Friday everyone!  I have been on vacation this week and it feels so good to take a few days and just play and be creative.

Yesterday Nikki, from www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com came out with a huge adorable halloween set, so I just had to make a layout using those cute little bears.

I used my Silhouette Studio program and combined the bottom images together and then print and cut them out.  This new file comes with a lot of titles, but chose "2 cute 2 scare" for my layout.  Used Martha Stewarts cobweb punch for the sides of the background page and photo mats.

Hope you will check out this newest file from Nikki and enter to win a Silhouette Cameo!!!  The Silhouette Cameo is such a great machine - Good luck!

Beary Scary...


This is the newest file from www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com - isn't it the cutest???  There are sooo many possibilities with this one - it is HUGE!!. 

Here is a little box I made using just one of these cute little characters.


I used the print and cut feature for my Silhouette Cameo so I was able to make this project in less than 15 minutes.  These would be great to put a few little pieces of candy for those special trick or treaters that come to your door.

To make the box, I used Close to My Heart's Artiste cartridge.  If you have not seen this cartridge or heard about this cartridge, you have to check it out.  This cartridge has over 700 images, and many many 3D projects.  Lots of different boxes, cards, cupcake holders, cupcake wrappers and 3D flowers.  They also have coordinating stamp sets that go along with their images.

If you would like to order this cartridge or any supplies from Close to My Heart, please stop by my website at www.therrien.linda.ctmh.com and place an order.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at therrien_linda@yahoo.com and I will be more than happy to help you.

Thank you for stopping by, I have a lot more projects planned using Close to My heart stamps and the Artiste cartridge, so I hope you will come back again.

Gobble Gobble...

Today is my design team post for www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com.  It has been so HOT this summer that my mind has turned to cooler weather.  I chose Nikki's "Happy Thanksgiving" file.  I love fall and all the smells that go with the season.  I used the turkey in that file to make this card.
The card base is 5 x 5 by Studio G
Embossing folder is from Darice called "flower" it is the 5 x 7 size
a little faux stitching and it is done. :).

Hope you like it.  Please visit Nikki's store and see all the wonderful files she has, you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for stopping by.
