Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #130


Happy Wednesday and welcome to this week's sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday where this week's sponsor is Di's Digi Dowloads and up for grabs to our Grand Prize winner...a $10 gift certificate to Diane's store.

Hope you can join us this week and create something using Arlana's beautiful sketch! We appreciate each of you that takes the time to join us in our challenges!

I used one of my very favorite designer paper packs from Stampin' Up that is now retired, Wintergreen. My ribbon and corduroy buttons are also from Stampin' Up....as well as the markers that I colored this cute image with.

Here is a peek at the inside:




I used my new sentiment set from Papertrey Ink to stamp the inside.

On a more personal note, I apologize for not visiting and being around the past several days. There are several couples that my husband and I are close friends with that form a special group and one of those has been fighting cancer for the past year and a half. I had blogged about Jill's battle with esophageal cancer before and unfortunately it ended on Monday around midday. She took a turn for the worse on Sunday and was taken to the hospital where she spent the last hours of her life surrounded by her family. Rick and I are puppy sitting for Jansen ( her husband) and for those of you that read my blog, you know that I am a cat person and have very little experience with dogs....it has been an adventure. Murphy is such a beautiful miniature dachshund and not much larger than my hands, lol she has my largest cat Sable truly buffaloed. Please, for those of you that will, please say a prayer for her family. On top of all of this, my Internet has been down and has just now come back up on Tuesday evening, so I am trying to get this loaded in case we lose it again. It was down all over VA for our service....must have been the cyber Monday shoppers!

I promise to get back around as soon as I can, take care and thanks for understanding.
Hugs to you all and be sure and hug those that you love.

Card Details:
Paper: SU always atrichoke, Wintergreen
Ink: SU markers, stardust pen, stickles diamond
Other: Spellbinders circle, coluzzle, Pop dots, Baja Breeze ribbon and button, kiwi kiss button

Fancy Folds at Sugar Creek Hollow


Good morning and welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow.
This week our challenge to you is FANCY
FOLDS
. So think outside the box or past the single fold and
let us see vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards with fun and fancy
folds.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday if you celebrate and if not, a great week. I have eaten entirely too much and my niece and I did a marathon all day shop yesterday, so I am happy to be at home today. It sounds as if this will be our last really warm day (60's) this week, so I am going to try and get my outside Christmas decorations up and then maybe take down my Autumn and redo the inside the first of the week. I am on a mission to get it done so that I can enjoy the month of December with friends and family this year
.
Now, as to my card....those that follow me or visit very often have probably heard me talk about how much I love easel cards, so that is what I decided to make for this weeks challenge.


I used a frame image (free) from Percy and Bloom and used foam dots to mount the dress form which is a design from McMahon Five (love them and they are having a sale). Stamping the damask in Versamark on the inside gives me a soft look. Those are the limitless layers dies from Papertrey Ink and I think they will be one of my new favorites!





The Cloud 9 pebble quote say "Memories are the most beautiful picture"and I know just the person to send it to.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a
winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one
project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and
will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from
our challenge entries
between now and Christmas Eve.

The ladies on the Design Team are joined by a Guest Designer today.
Please welcome Brenda Brown, who was chosen from the October
Cards of the Week. All the designers have created some cards with very
fun folds for your inspiration. To get details just click on their name

I am so excited to show you this card made with  an image from our new sponsor Whimsie Doodles , I had such a difficult time deciding which of their beautiful digital images that I wanted to use, but finally decided on this set "axelent Christmas". Here is a bit about them:

I also layered my same papers for the inside, embossing one edge of the brown card stock with an embossing folder.

Doodle Pantry Mutiple Cards


Happy Tuesday, if you read my post from last night you saw where I needed to make some more Christmas cards and I had been tossing this idea around for a bit. I printed two cards on one sheet of white card stock  printed out in landscape format and then simply cut into at 5 1/2 inches. Then after a little bit of coloring using my Prisma pencils and oms, they were ready to be sent. This is a simple one layer card that will be easy to mail.

My first set was made using one of my favorite sets Holy Land flowers (there are 3 different sets) and the Star of Bethlehem, using Laurie's sentiments, this set makes beautiful Christmas, Easter or just any time cards.


My second set of cards uses Laurie's set "Blessed Christmas" which I used the outline image and colored it myself, but this set also comes precolored and then how easy would this be???



You still have time to enter our challenge now going on through the 24th and just for playing and using a Doodle Pantry image, you will receive this months free set "Wishbone Ants". So jump on over to Doodle Pantry and check it out.

Digi Doodle Color Challenge #83


Well, I am back and able to see what I am posting....our monitor must have been gradually going bad for a bit, as now that I have my new one it is so bright!!! almost blinds me the other way. I am back with another Christmas card....need to replenish my stash. A couple of my friends talked me into joining them at a local craft sale this past Saturday and as it was not planned in advance, I just took a bunch of things that I had in my stash. We all three did pretty well and it was so much fun just hanging out and visiting with each other... a shout out to Cindy and Sharon, thanks guys!

My card is for the color challenge Red/Green, now going on at Digi Doodles which is one of my new favorite blogs. I love the images and need to get my order in for this month. You will love the free with purchase set and there is a sale on animal images as well. For my card this week, I went with a sentiment from the free set "Faith, Hope, Love".  I love the way this turned out, I may need to put some more of these together. I used design paper from K&Co "yuletide" and simply die cut the sentiment and then before removing from the die, I sponged it with peeled paint distress ink. My bow is from some sheer ribbon that I bought at the local Dollar Tree.


For the inside, I used the rest of the piece that I had cut for the front and die cut it with a border punch by Martha Stewart. My "Merry Christmas" is from Stampin' Up's set Come to Bethlehem.

This was very fast and easy to put together, but I love the statement from John 3:16 on my Christmas card. Hope you are doing well and getting ready for a wonderful holiday. I just love Thanksgiving and can't wait to see my family this week. I will be trying to stop by for a visit in between some cleaning and cooking. I think that my grocery shopping is done.
Thanks for stopping by.

Card Details:
Paper: SU cherry cobbler, ivory, K& co yuletide
Ink: THDI peeled paint, Versafine onyx black
Other: Spellbinders Labels one, DT ribbon, Martha Stewart punch

Papercraft Star



Good Evening, I hope this finds you all well...and enjoying a wonderful weekend. I am doing a last minute post for Challenge  71 A Special Thank You at Papercraft Star where this week the theme is a thank you card and as always, you can either use their inspiration photo or not.


I think this is such a beautiful photo and the cards made by the design team are gorgeous. I immediately thought of this digital stamp by Isabella. Please check out this blog site when you have a moment. Their challenges are so inspiring and fun, which is what this is all about. Plus I am in love with their sponsor, The House Across the Bay!


This weekend has been super busy and I haven't been around much .... hopefully I will be by to visit soon. I am having some monitor problems and just typing this is giving me a headache, so I will try and fix that tomorrow and be back online. Take care and thanks for stopping by.

Recipe Time at Sugar Creek Hollow!! Come Share with Us!

It is Saturday and we have a really fun challenge for you at Sugar Creek Hollow this week. We want to see a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project that features a RECIPE CARD. The recipe card can be shown either on the front or inside your project and the recipe itself should be a family favorite that has been passed down over the years.

I have decided to create a family cookbook/scrapbook listing some of the recipes from my Mom and Grandmother and then some that are favorites from the family gatherings at my home for the past 30 years. My mother passed away in 1990 after a short bout with Leukemia and this is one of our favorites that she loved to fix. Mexican Cornbread. Here is her recipe:

Mexican Cornbread   Ailene Frazier
2 cups self-rising cornmeal mIx            1 cup buttermilk
1 small green pepper chopped            1 can cream style corn
(jalapeƱo if desired may be added)    2 eggs
1 small onion                                     8 oz shredded cheese
¼ cup oil
Mix together all ingredients, except shredded cheese. Put ½ of batter in
pan.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese and pour the other part of the batter over this. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Here is a close up of my scrapbook page....



I used a Sizzix flower die and bookplate and a Spellbinders curvy rectangle die to make my frame for the picture. The chipboard is some that I have had forever and don't recall the manufacturer.

For the front of my book I used Stampin' Up real red and kraft card stock. My apron is by The Stamping Boutique and the 40's apron lady by A Day for Dasies. More unknown chipboard helps decorate my front. Since I am not scrapbooking much, I thought that this would be a perfect family scrapbook for the future, when my niece takes over the cooking for family meals.









This is so delicious with a homemade chili or soup in the Fall and Winter. I think Marsha has a cheesy soup recipe that I may just have to fix to go with this!

If your recipe isn't easily read from the photo of your project, then we would ask that you detail it in your post. It would also be great if you could show a photo of the finished recipe. Your recipe can be of any type and we would love to hear the story behind it. Soon your family's favorite could become someone else's family favorite so thanks for sharing.



This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. In addition, the Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week and the creator will receive a badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.



Don't forget, we also have Christmas Blog Candy for one lucky winner to be chosen from our challenge entries between now and Christmas Eve.



Our designers have shared some wonderful recipes so click on their name to be taken directly to their blog where you will find many more details about their recipe and their project.


Can't wait to see what you have to show us!! Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Patti

CAS-ual Friday Tag!


It has been a while since I have played at CAS-ual Fridays but since I am making an effort this week to get back in to some outside challenges, I just couldn't resist this one:



I love tags and with these new dies from Papertrey ink, no problem making one for all those winter birthdays. I used Recollections kraft card stock cut to the measurement I wanted and then using my Stampin' Up tag punch I clipped the corners.  The tree was die cut and then stamped with old olive ink, the deer simply die cut from chocolate brown card stock. The snowflakes are from the same stamp set "In the Meadow"  stamped with Tim Holtz distress inks. I hand cut the banner edge for my sentiment. Don't you just love this set??? You may get tired of seeing it before I get tired of using it. Hope your week is going great, hope to be by to visit with all of you a little later today.

Sketch at Digi Doodle Shop Challenges


Another challenge card, as you can see I was in my craft room yesterday afternoon. A couple of weeks ago I told you about a new digital shop and challenge blog that I found surfing...and Digi Doodle Shop is having a sketch challenge for this week, so I thought I would give it a try.


I used one of the images that I bought "Winter Snow Bird". I loved the holly framing this, so I was thrilled when I found the holly paper in this pack by Memory Box "mistletoe". The sentiment is also from Digi Doodles, when making my purchase, I found several free sets of sentiments that are fabulous with their beautiful stamps. I cut this one with a SU word punch. Using Copics and Prismacolor pencils, I colored the stamp and added stickles and glitter glue with extra glitter snow to make it really sparkle.


I added this sentiment from an old Stampin' Up set....thought it was the perfect one with my scene.

Hope you will check out this blog, their DT has some beautiful designs to show you.

Card Details:
Paper: Stampin' Up cherry cobbler, recollections, Memory Box "mistletoe"
Ink: Copics, Prismas and oms
Other: Stampin' Up ribbon, Papertrey Ink button, embroidery thread, SU word window punch, Glitter glue, stickles ranger, Martha Stewart glitter,

Papercraft Star challenge card!


Yeah, I made a card for a challenge!! Can you believe it?? Seems as if I have been busy creating for my design teams and as much as I love to do that, sometimes it is just fun to play someone else's challenges. I found this one at PaperCraft Star where I have been seeing some gorgeous images by a company The House Across the Bay . They give a freebie away each week and that is the image I am using on my card. It came in dark blue, but I changed the color in Word. I will admit that I am getting a list together to purchase from their shop. They have digital sheets that are just calling my name, lol.
They are also the sponsor for this challenge which uses an inspiration photo which is, use if you choose and needs to include a number.


My sentiment is computer generated and the number 4 is from some unknown chipboard that I have had forever, I just colored over the polka dot green.



I love this die that is from Memory Box and one that I picked up on our annual girl's stamp show shopping trip in North Carolina. Stop by and check out this fun blog and the great things at THATB....I hope to be able to show you what I bought very soon.

For my card, I am using a set that was released last month "Snow Birdies". I used the outline images, but it also comes in precolored with digital papers. Using Stampin' Up markers and copics to color and adding dp's from Memory Box, I love how this one turned out. Never have been a big sparkle, glitter kind of girl...but I may be turned to the shiny side, lol!


My inside sentiment is also from this set, punching the snowflakes from the design paper gave me a positive and negative way to use them. Love the look over the burgundy paper.

I couldn't resist this past month when Nicole released her new set and dies "In the Meadow". Many of you may already love and use their products, but let me just tell you that their dies are out of this world. I used the tree die, horse and sleigh, and the two different sizes of snow to create my card. I decided to let the design paper do the talking and because of that, my only stamping is done with one of the sentiments that I also purchased in the Think Big Favorites #9 set using Versamark and copper embossing powder. I can't wait to try something else using my new stamps.

Don't you just love that sentiment??? I used my Martha Stewart border punch to create some more trees along the bottom.

So glad you could visit today and hope you enjoyed my card, now get on over to the blog and check out the ladies and be sure and check out our blog candy.  Just enter a card and that Cricut may belong to you. Have a fabulous Saturday!!

Blog Hop at Doodle Pantry and 12 Days of Christmas!!


Welcome!!! Today is the first day of our blog hop at Doodle Pantry to showcase our new set just released on the 1st of November "12 Days of Christmas". Our team will be showing you ways to use this versatile set! The color version is on sale for only $4.50, what a bargain! You receive not only the color versions of all of the images but the outlines as well, along with digital papers. You may also purchase only the outlines for $3.50 if you so desire. With any purchase, the new set "Cute Quail" is free!
I created a set of tags, selfishly for myself to use on my gifts this year and in doing so made them with a rustic, distressed look.


I used the same design on each to make it a fairly quick project. I centered my image inside of the appropriate circle sentiment and was able to print 6 per page, these I cut out with my Spellbinders circle die. After coloring with Tim Holtz distress inks, they were layered  on large tags that I made by cutting card stock to the same size and using my SU tag punch on the corners and tags cut with the largest Spellbinder tag die. These were all distressed with those same inks. I added a to from sentiment on the back of each and a For you sentiment on the front punched with my 1" circle punch.




You should have arrived here from Feline Creative, Karen's blog and be on you way to visit Warm Harted, Elizabeth's blog but if for some reason you are off track, be sure and hop on over to Doodle Pantry to follow along. You don't have to comment on our blogs but you never know when there might be a surprise! and be sure to follow the directions at DP to be in the running for several gift certificates being given away!!

Mayonaise and Hot Cocoa.....

What do these two things have in common.....not much except a container!


But this is what it looked like before, I forgot to take a picture of it washed and clean....but since this is our regular brand, I took a one of our new jar.



Welcome to Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. We hope you weren't caught in that early snow storm that found its way to the northeast United States last weekend. If you did, we hope you were able to get some crafting in, even if the power was out.  Crafting by candlelight sounds so relaxing, doesn't it?

This week our challenge to you is to turn something from your garbage or recycling bin into a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper-crafted project. We want you to turn TRASH TO VINTAGE TREASURE. You can include items from your paper scraps but your project must start with something you are re-purposing. Please include a photo of that item in your post so we can say "You went from that to that - wow!"

We will choose one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will select one project as Card of the Week and the creator of that project will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

By entering this challenge you not only have a chance to win our regular prizes but your name will go into the draw for the Christmas Blog Candy every time you enter so let's see your wonderful creations.


Here is a close up of my wonderful Victorian Santa image:
He is a freebie that I got a good while back from Vintage Holiday Crafts. For my top, I layered two dies and a sentiment from Stampin' Up along with another free image, this one from Magic Moonlight that I placed under a clear pebble and trimmed around.


My fabric topper is some that I have had in my stash for years.

 I thought that these would be great neighbor gifts for Rick and I to give out this year. The mayo jars are plastic and therefore unbreakable and I think my neighbors would love these. Now to just get a few more made.

I would like to share the hot cocoa recipe with you:

1 lb. chocolate drink mix
1-1/4 c. powdered non-dairy creamer
25.6-oz. pkg. powdered milk
2 c. powdered sugar
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Give with these instructions: To serve add 1/4 cup to 12 ounces hot water or milk. Makes about 29 cups mix.

I will add a tag with the instructions and a small bag of mini marshmallows when gifting.

Our designer have dug deep into their recycling bins and have transformed some interesting items into wonderful treasures that are sure to inspire you so do check out their blogs to get all the details.

I hope you can join us this week, don't forget the blog candy (might I just say Cricut!). Thanks for stopping in this morning.
I hope you will stop back by for my post at noon!
