Merry Christmoose

 Playing with my December Daily for a bit before starting Christmas dinner!  Used the Moose die to create day 1.  (Yes, I'm way out of order!  LOL)

I'd had surgery on December 1, so there were no pictures. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmoose!

December Days 7 and 8

 Having so much fun with my December Daily using dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today, I'm posting days 7 and 8!

December Daily - Fox

 I had a medical procedure earlier this month, and it put me WAY behind on my December Daily!  Oh gosh, it's fun to do the pages though - whenever I get them done!  I'm also a bit out of order, but whatever, right?  Today, I finished up Day 5.

I'm loving this year's December Daily with the adorable animals from Joset at Elizabeth Craft Designs! Today's features the fox (with a picture of my foxy guy!).  The Planner Essentials # is 9.

Cute, Cute New Release

 There's an adorable new release over at Elizabeth Craft Designs from Joset! Today I used the Gnomes dies and the Holiday Train Dies to create a couple planner pages for my December Daily Planner Album!

I absolutely love this new release! The red page is a page for one of the days (which yet, I don't know!), and the green page is the title page for the book.  The green page is also submitted for inspiration for this week's sketch challenge at Crazy4Challenges.

Sidekick FuN!

 I'm posting today at Elizabeth Craft Designs with a couple of Sidekick pages for my "Me and My Guy" journal of adventures. You can click on the link above to learn more about the pages.

I love creating these pages. The last one will be inspiration for next week's Crazy4Challenges challenge to create a card without a stamp.  (Instead I created a page without one...)

Witchy Fun - Trick or Treat

 Had some fun with the new Happy Harvest collection from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Here's one I made:

The witch is super cute. I added a piece of the Slimline Spider Web background and the spider that is included in that set. That sentiment is from the Autumn Words collection and is stamped on a Fitted Circle Die.

Thanks for checking out my card today!

Wine Tasting Fun

 My guy and I were running errands last Saturday, and he said "hey, let's take a break for lunch..."  That break turned into a 3-hour wine tasting adventure all over the county we live in California. I decided to "scrap" it for my Sidekick-sized "me and him" planner. I used the Crazy4Challenges sketch for the first page.

The right side follows the sketch (mostly). On the right side is a picture of the view from the Matchbook Winery. So beautiful.

Thank you for stopping by today!  Hope you join us in the Crazy4Challenges Sketch Challenge this week!

Flower Fun

 I absolutely love the FUN florals from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  Here are a couple cards I made with them:

I'm submitting the "Lots of Love" one as inspiration for this week's Crazy4Challenges about our favorite song.  Mine is currently "Like I'm Gonna Lose You" by Meghan Trainer. (Hence, the lots of love!)

Fun Kings Game

 The challenge this week at Crazy4Challenges is all about monochrome. My Sidekick-sized journal page using dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs fits the bill in all purple (except the pictures!). This was a Mom's Day date I had with my guy where I met his sister, mom, dad and friend and we got to see a really fun Sacramento Kings game.

The supplies I used are linked up below.  Thanks for stopping by today.

 It's all about the flowers over at Crazy4Challenges this week, so I decided to do a scrapbooking/planner page with flowers on it, commemorating a fun time I had with my guy celebrating his sister's birthday.  

I really love doing these mini-Sidekick-sized pages.  The paper is from my stash, and the dies and stamps from Elizabeth Craft Designs are linked up below. Thanks for stopping by - and please join our challenge!

Masculine Birthday Cards

My guy's son's birthday was a couple weeks ago, and I realized I don't make nearly enough cards for the men in my life. I decided to create a few to have on hand:

I followed the same basic sketch and used products mostly from Elizabeth Craft Designs (that are linked up below).  I love how fun and simple they are!

Thanks for stopping by today!
