Happy Holidays with Die Cuts R Us Blog Hop!!!


Merry Christmas Eve!!! It's finally here! The...
Die Cuts R Us Design Team Holiday Blog Hop!!!

To start at the beginning of the hop, please go to the Die Cuts R Us DT Blog... otherwise, you should have just left my lil sisters blog, Sarabeth of Scrap Happie :)

Don't forget to leave a lil love on each of the DT's blogs and grab your "keywords" to unscrable the phrase and be entered to win a gift fromt he Die Cuts R Us Store!!!

The team was asked to use their fave products from the Die Cuts R Us Store... Do you know how hard this was to do?!?! I couldn't just go WITH (<--- keyword!) one product!

Now, if you know me, you know that I am a Twilight-a-holic ;) and lil' Edward from The Greeting Farm is my boyfriend! hee, hee! Especially when he is colored in with my beloved Copic Markers and Copic Atyou Spica Glitter Markers! Add in some Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly DP and The Robin's Nest Dew Drops and I am in heaven!!!

See?! Edward always sparkles just for me :)
This card was also inspired by Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge 53!

... and then I did needed to take a lil break from the holidays to enjoy some December birthdays...
This is my first time inking up this handsome guy - The Greeting Farm's Twinkle Tots "Max" Rubber Stamp - paired him up with Cosmo Cricket's Boyfriend DP and Cuttlebug's Stars Embossing Folder!
Perfect birthday card!
This card was created using The Greeting Farm's Christmas Sketch #2!

Getting back into the holiday spirit... I always turn to my Memento Ink, Copic Markers and Dew Drops to get my mojo flowing...
I also turn to sketches ;)
This card was inspired by The Greeting Farm's Christmas Sketch #3!

And last, but certainly not least! I finally digged into some new faves!!! Bo Bunny DP, Neenah Paper, May Arts Ribbon and my Nestabilities!!!  I don't think I'll ever created another card without using my Nestabilities ;) and I used The Greeting Farm's Christmas Sketch #1!

There ya go! Now you know my favorite must haves when I am getting my scrappy groove on!!!

OH! Don't forget to also enter Die Cuts R Us' Epic Six Die Cutting Tool Contest HERE!

Your next stop is the very wonderful, sweet and talented Jessica of The Whimsical Butterfly 

Happy Hopping!!!

I am so inspired by your beautiful creations this morning. Time has gotten away from me and I have had little time to create these past weeks. I am LOVING each and every card. Your Twilight card is just perfect! I have not seen or read, but know many who love the series as much as you do. The sweet GF card with the sheep and Shepard is just precious!

Merry Christmas
