PaperCrafter's Corner and DCWV Challenges

     Stranger things have happened.  When I saw the inspiration piece for PaperCrafter's Corner Week Magazine Monday Week 164 challenge, the DCWV Confetti Stack was open on my desk.  The bright colors in the stack were a match for the ones in the PCC inspiration piece!  Yippee!  Isn't picking the papers the hardest part of a challenge?  Now I could combine two, Magazine Monday and the October Stack-a-Holic Challenge (Scrapbook part)!

     I love the paper I used here!  I love this stack!  And I'll tell you more about that in a minute.  All the prints, including the striped vellum were from the Confetti stack.  The solids were from the DCWV Christmas stack.  Instead of stars as embellishments, I obviously went for teddy bears, including cutting teddy bear shaped holes in the one paper.  I did that on the Cricut, as well as cutting the title.  The only other thing I used was the little Sizzix teddy bear die and a piece of ribbon.  Still on the mend, I'm all about "easy," and this was, yet I love it!  Hope you do, too!
     But hold on!  I wasn't through with this stack!  It has little packets of confetti right in the stack.  They leak everywhere, but that's okay.  It gave me an idea!  I checked out the DCWV October-Stack-a-holic card challenge.  Everything I needed was right there in that one stack, even the sentiments.  Easy peasy, and so much fun.  Okay, it took a couple of days, but that's only because I can only sit at the desk for short periods of time.  To think I got all of this done in one week, though, shows it was easy.  So much inspiration in one stack of paper!  Thank you, DCWV!  And thank you, Steph, for choosing just the right magazine cover this week!
Thank you for stopping by.  I'd love for you to leave a comment.  :o)
P.S.  Just read that the PCC entry this week is supposed to include a winter holiday.  Please note the sentiment on some of these cards say, "Cue the Confetti!"  Now isn't that perfect for New Year's?  New Year's Eve is also DGD's birthday, "Happy Day!"  She's a holiday everyday!

  2. You are doing terrific!! Love both your layout and cards!! Super bright, fun and gorgeous projects!!

  3. Suzi,

    It is great to see that you are able to it at your craft table, even if it is for short periods of time. I love all three of your projects. The scrapbook page is so fun. I love all of the bears cut out for the background.

    I actually forget to use my Cricut. The funny thing is, it is what started this whole love affair with paper I have! If I would ever get my old computer off of the desk it is on and put my Cricut there full-time, I think I would use it a lot more!

  4. The scrapbook page and shaker cards are darling. Great job.
