Witch Hat- SOUS- Die Cut Challenge

Happy Halloween! Today I have a project to share with you that I made for the Die Cut Challenge at SOUS. The challenge is to use any Halloween themed die cut. It was more work than I originally thought to do this hat, but I made it through and I'm super happy with the results! :)


The hat I believe is from Michaels, but I could be mistaken on that. I started off by applying the paper to the form. I used a collection from Bo Bunny called Fright Delight. I cut strips of paper, wet them slightly and then applied then using mod podge. A little hint if you're going to attempt this project....work in small sections and then dry immediately with a dryer. That way you can press the paper into the creases and around the edges. I found this worked really well. Putting on the strips of paper took a long time, but the effort was well worth it.

 



I used some dies that I cut out with my Silhouette. This little skeleton key was just perfect to put behind the skull.

 
I also cut out this spider web and the word Wicked. I put on some stickles to make them pop and then tucked them behind the bow and flower. Another little hint for you....Be careful hot gluing the embellishments on! You don't want to take off a layer of skin like I did! LOL! But again...so worth it! :)

Hope you enjoyed my little project and don't forget to link your die cut entries on the SOUS blog!

Project Life- SOUS

This week's challenge at SOUS for Project Life was to use Orange, Black and White. I just happened to have a whole bunch of photos that all focused on getting ready for Fall. We decorated, shopped and did crafts and the colors were perfect for this challenge!


The little die cut of the tree that I used was the freebie over at Miss Kate Cuttables. If you own a Silhouette and aren't familiar with this site, I suggest you check it out! They have a great freebie every day of the week! Plus there's tons of things to buy if you're interested in that!

Remember to enter your project at SOUS for a chance at this months prize!

Celebrate-SOUS reveal day!

Good morning! It's reveal day at SOUS today and Nanne has provided us with an awesome sketch to work with! I used the sketch to document Isla's 2nd birthday. We were at the lake for her actual birthday, but later had a big family party when we got home. It was celebrated in true Buck Lake fashion with the handmade sign taped on the wall and the lopsided pan cake! LOL! Maybe not the prettiest of parties, but super fun and that's what counts!


Materials- Bo Bunny Surprise Patterned Paper, Jewels, Cardstock Stickers, Combo Stickers, Dimensional Stickers, Trinkets and Noteworthy, Glitz and Glitter Glitter Stickers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Doily ( dollar store)

Birthday Girl- SOUS- Project Life

Today's challenge at SOUS was to use a Keep Calm card. These cards can be found everywhere. I did a google search for mine. I know what I wanted it to say and just typed that in. Tons of images came up for this. I checked to make sure that it was one that was free to print and then away I went. This week's spread is about Isla's 2nd Birthday party that we had at the lake. Don't we all look great? LOL!


Hope you can join in this week's challenge with your own Keep Calm card! Trust me, they aren't hard to find and make a really cute addition to your layout! Link up your projects for a chance to win a great monthly prize!

Summer- Project Life for SOUS

Today over at SOUS, the Project Life challenge was to Make a List! I chose to use a printed Summer Bucket List card for my layout. I wrote a list of things we had done that went with the pictures I wanted to use. It was a great, relaxing summer and we sure enjoyed the nice weather we had here this year.  So sad that it's over, but there's always next year!


If you decide to participate in the challenge, make sure to link up your project on the SOUS blog for a chance to win a great prize! And don't forget to take a look at what the other designers have come up with!

Dance Your Heart Out- SOUS Reveal

What a busy summer we had over here! I'm glad that things are slowly falling back into routine. I haven't done any scrapping for months now as we've been gone most of the summer. I'm happy to be getting to it again and catching up on my projects! That's why I'm so excited that there is another great sketch is up on the SOUS blog today! It was perfect to scrap this photo of Renee. Her last round of dance in June was the Hagallah. It is a very fun and lively Egyptian folk dance. She and her group had a fantastic time performing at the festival and they have a few more engagements booked to show off their mad skills!


Please stop on by the blog to see how everyone interpreted this wonderful sketch! If you have time to try it yourself, remember that SOUS is now offering a great prize pack to one lucky challenge participant for the month!
