Digital Delights by Louby Loo Design Team Project

Happy Fall Y'all!
I am showcasing the "Fall Fun" paper piecing file
from Digital Delights by Louby Loo.
All of her paper piecings come together so nicely
 with no rough edges and her files also come with layers for on top of the layers.
Awesome feature ** two thumbs up**.
I used Night and Fall by Recollections for my scrapbook papers.

I have seen quite a few layouts on Pinterest and Facebook with twine
around the photo mats, so I added that to this layout it seemed like it was
missing something and it really is a nice touch.

You can find the file that I used HERE, if your interested.

Thank you all for stopping by today, and please feel free to leave a comment
and if you have a question please just ask!

Center-Step Card Blog Hop

Good Morning! Today I am in a "Center-Step Card" Blog Hop hosted by Ashley 'GlamourssideofScrappin' Townsend! The hop will start with her, HERE.
The Center-Step card is a elegant way to dress up any card and you really don't see them that often so this is the perfect time to start making them for the upcoming holidays. The best news is that they are very easy to make, if you have a Silhouette machine leave me a comment with your email address letting me know your interested in the file and I will send you the template so you can start making your own!
If you don't own a Silhouette (Cameo or SD), you can find the tutorial HERE.  
To make my card I used a few stickers from the "Echo Park: Winter Park" Collection,
cut out some snowflakes added stickles to them and the snow.
Very simple and still looks elegant.

The sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps "Snow Day"

 Stickles added to the snow bank, I used Baby Blue for the top
and Frosted Lace for the rest of the bank.

Good Afternoon! I posted this on my Facebook page: Creative Cricut Designs, but forgot to post to my blog. Designs on Cloud 9 is having a sketch challenge until September 29, 2012. It has been awhile since I have been able to join in on paper piecing challenges, so this is the first one and I think it turned out pretty good.

The title is cut from the Silhouette Studio (Cameo)
Film Strip is also from the Silhouette Studio
The end caps and cat are chipboard cut outs from the Paper Studio
This is the sketch that you need to follow, but remember,

The Crazy Dog & Cupcake Blog Hop

Welcome to our Crazy Dog and Cupcake Blog Hop! 
What started out as a random idea for a blog hop turned into a funny theme! We threw out some ideas on different "odd observances" in the up coming months ~ one being National Dog Day and the other Cupcake Day ~ everyone seemed to like these two themes so we put it to a vote! Who would have thought it would have turned into a tie?! So we voted once more ~ thanks to Pamela's creative thinking, she put the two together. What could be more fun than working with dogs and cupcakes! So sit back and enjoy the fun and creative projects the group has put together for you today!
No blog hop would be complete without some fun blog candy to win! Today we have a very gracious sponsor ~ KaDoodle Bug Designs is giving one lucky winner $15 in free files!  All you have to do to win the prize is:
1.  Comment on each stop along the way
2.  Like KaDoodle Bug Designs Facebook page:
Your line up today is:

I used Rufus the Puppy Collection which I have provided you with the link HERE in case you would like to purchase this cute little puppy (or win it).
 Here is our not so crazy boxer, Sasha!

I used My Creative Time's "Build a Banner" kit 
to create the banner.

I also used the Fiskar's grass border punch (my fav), thickers, twine, and the paper pack I used today is from The Paper Studio: Spoiled Rotten
