CHA Bound!

Well, if you are reading this than I will be thinking of you in uber sunny California. I wanted to show you some of the layouts and projects that I created over at the Nook for their crop last weekend. It has been AGES since I got to participate in a virtual crop. It was so much fun and I was on a creative high from making CHA stuff for Core that I just kept right on going! Plus, it was 2 degrees here last weekend so we couldn't even go out and play in the snow.

I can't wait to get home and share some photos, with you from CHA. WE HAD A BLAST!


Here is a layout I did about Nutty Families (I don't need to explain a lot here). Lots of Jillibean Soup goodness on here. I don't know about you but I have been stalking their blog (and probably their booth right about now, LOL) these past few weeks. The background cs is Core Vintage.


I used my Diamond Glaze as an accent to the Jillibean journal sprout. OH and a BRAND new Elle's Studio journal spot, too.


And some Echo Park goodness here.




I ran the cs stickers through my Cuttlebug (put them on wax paper) and then I used my hammer and Cuttlebug embossing border for the cardstock edge. It's too big to run through the machine so this is an easy way to do it. Some ppl use a rolling pin but you need to really push hard so I bust out the hammer. Much easier and helps relieve stress, too ;)

Cannot wait to hear all about CHA, Ellen! Hope you got LOTS of photos!
I love your pages! The Snuggie one makes me smile. My DD got one in purple for Christmas. :)
Love the Jillibean page, too. Love the bright and happy colors and papers and love the embossed truck. Totally love your trick for embossing the big paper, too. I just got a Cuttlebug, so I must give this a try.

I love the idea of running the stickers through the cuttlebug.
