  Design Team: Just Plain Cute

Pin It  Hello, 
This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you another double layout I created with an SVG-file from our awesome sponsor this month, Paper Crafting World:


I used the  Cat Sitting and ready SVG file from our sponsor, old school related papers and frames from the Artbooking cart from CTMH, you can find similar papers and this cart at Connie's webpage.

I will be posting later today more pictures at my blog: Vicky's Scrapping Passion, I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy to create scrapbooking layout.

  Funky Chicken Card

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!
This is Connie with Connie Can Crop and I am super excited to be posting as a designer for Paper Crafting World. I am so excited to be able to share these adorable cut and digital files with you.


When I saw this card I knew I had to create it! Why? Because my stepmom loves chickens! So this one is being sent off to her! She will probably frame it!


 I just love the details on the background of this card! I added an older Close to my Heart paper pack, Jubilee and a cute flatback for flair!

The file I used, Chicken Wire Frame, is created by PCW but is exclusive to the Pazzles Craft Room.

Be sure to stop by Paper Crafting World and see all the great files waiting for you! 
I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Miss Kate Cuttables

Pin It

Hello my crafty friends!!

It's Connie Can Crop here and my day to post with  Miss Kate Cuttables!  
In keeping with the Travel theme this month at MKC, I created a vacation themed layout for you today! I really had a blast creating this layout and remembering the fun we had on this trip! 

But first, did you know that Miss Kate Cuttables gives away a free file everyday?
YES, absolutely FREE. So what are you waiting for, head over there and get your free file now!!

For my project I used the Vacation Memories title and the airplane file. They both compliment each other really well in this layout.





Lots of pop dots add dimension to these adorable die cuts.


Page one Up Close! 


Page two Up Close... 

Notice the fun flip flaps from CTMH that I used. They allow you to add more photos to your layouts!


I layered two flip flaps to create this mini album.



I can't thank you enough for checking out my project. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  Spongebob Squarepants

Pin It
Hello my crafty friends!

It's Connie here today to share a super fun layout I created just for the heck of it!
No DT project for this just the sheer joy of wanting to finally bust open my Spongebob Cricut cartridge. I am so glad I did!






The paper I used came from SandyLion. It was just perfect for my layout! Of course I used tons of cardstock (11 sheets to be exact) and pop dots for extra dimension.

I can't thank you enough for checking out my blog today. It means the world to me and I hope you truly enjoyed it. May it inspire you to create something wonderful!   Scrappy Hugs!

  CASE a CARD Blog Hop

Pin It

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike.  Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.

This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 


We took one card created by Alicia  and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.


You should have arrived here from Alicia's blog.



We'd like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.



Theresa is giving away a $20 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one lucky winner AND
take 10% off any order placed through her (not available on website) by September 30th. 
Email her at scrapsbygracie AT gmail.com with your order. 

All you have to do to win this fabulous prize is comment on each of the blogs.
That's it! It really is easy.  
Of course, we would love it if you became a follower too. 

Comment buttons can be found at the bottom of the post (on most of the blogs).
Now on with the hop!

Alicia created this really pretty card:


Here's my take on her card:


I didn't have and dies to create the wreath so I used various stamps. I know you can't tell from the photo but I embossed some of the stamped images, just like Alicia did. I added flowers to the wreath and stamped my sentiment on the inside. Alicia's card has green sparkle so I wanted to create some sparkle on my card as well, rhinestones are always great for bling!

Hope you enjoy my version!

Up next is my dear friend Kim at


Thanks so much for hopping with us! Here's the entire line up in case you get lost:

September's Challenge is "travel/vacation."

The cut n print feature is super easy to use and made these bags extra special! The girls just loved them!
Hope you did too!!
