Caardvarcks, Core'dinations, and stuff

92 and counting!!! That is how many entries there are so far over at the Caardvarks challenge blog. Make sure you check it out to see how you can win a 3 month guest spot at Core'dinations. I cannot say enough about how awesome they are!!!

OOOOOH and I almost forgot!!! PLEASE jump over to the Cuttlebug Challenge blog and follow us!!! Tons of awesome inspo even if you don't have a Cuttlebug...there is Cricut stuff and just plain old COOL projects. Tell 'em I sent ya ;)

I have a few more layouts to show you from the Nook crop the other weekend...It was sooo much fun to scrap, scrap, scrap my heart out for the weekend.


This first one is a bit funky for me :) I used the beer menu from this cool restaurant that we went to in Little Rock a few weeks ago while we were on vacation. This place had 149 beers on tap!!!!!!!!!!! YUM!



I used a myStampBOX stamp to journal on the inside and then I highlighted the beers we tried.

AND the flower is from a Studio Calico sticker that came on one of their kit bags.


How CUTE is this little myStampBox stamp???


I was totally inspired by my super talented friend, Susan Stringfellow to use some random embossing techniques on here. Just grab your Quickutz and go for it!!


I used some Jenni Bowlin Core Impression Core'dinations, along with some October afternoon goodies on here....random embossing with my Quikutz. And owen, owen, owen...i can't believe what a nugget he is here!

Cute stuff. I'd love to sample 149 beers... not all at once of course, then you have to eliminate the super light and the super dark ones. I like medium browns, hee hee. Cute little stamp for sure. Hope you're doing well!!

What fun are these layouts! You've got a wonderful style. And I just have to say that the Coordinations ladies have been the best, I can't believe that you took the time to comment on my card, how very nice, and a wonderful way to make someone feel special. I have a limited supply of scrapping materials but just won some Coordinations and am waiting for it to patiently arrive. Can't wait to play with it!!!

Sounds good, we'll meet up and have a beer, but not Iron City! YUCK. Penn Pilsner or Yuengling!

What great details, using that menu piece is so cute especially because it is such a neat color! Great use of the stamps with it.

Audrey Pettit said...

What adorable projects, Ellen! I love your beer menu one. We've got a Flying Saucer out in our area, too. Very fun place. Did you know that if you drink every single one of their beers you can get a plaque on the wall with your name on it! ;) So love that you crafted a page using the menu!
What a sweetie Owen is! Beautiful layout!
