8. Lisa (lpeeps) (3/3) = DONE!

I think I'd like to try this. My new Gypsy should be here today and I will need to be trying it out! (If I can figure it out!) I'll try a layout, a card and a gift card holder.

Two projects to drop off. The first is a layout.

Noel By Lpeeps

The second is a gift card holder.
Gift card-Christmas By Lpeeps

Here are two layouts with my new Gypsy! Messed with the welding to get the titles. Kind of fun. Love the Gypsy Font!

Treasure By Lpeeps

Arlington By Lpeeps

A card to share. I used the Wild Card. Also, a question. It is my tradition to make signs to decorate the boys doors for their bdays. I love how much easier it's become with my Cricut!! They aren't winter related, but they are winter bdays... would they count as my project?

A Star Is Born By Lpeeps

I have several to add here. First is my tag that will be my third completed project. Yeah!! (With the twist of a heart) I used Tags,bags,boxes and more and Wild Card.

Love Tag By Lpeeps

Next is a layout that I actually may like better than the first one I added here. I used Feeling Groovy.
Built Tough By Lpeeps

And 2 cards made with my Cricut, all valentines. Cart used was Love Struck.

XOXO By Lpeeps

My Sweetheart By Lpeeps

Two more to share.
This one uses All Mixed Up for the title.
Sweethearts By Lpeeps

I used Gypsy Font for this and welded the title. I'm still trying to figure the Gypsy out. Any ideas for the best tutorial?
Beautiful Lady By Lpeeps

10. Cori (troylet) (3/3) = DONE!

Wow -- that was hard. Great list of projects, Kelly! I've narrowed my choices down to:

Layout
Valentine(s)
ATC

Here's one for sharing. I did a calendar a few months ago for my son and I to use each day. I'm doing the month titles as I need them, so I don't have all 12 done yet.

I used Mickey Font for the lettering and Doodlecharms and Stretch Your Imagination for the symbols on the month titles.

Here are a couple of shots of it:

Calendar - 1 By Troylet

Calendar - 2 By Troylet

Happy Sunday! Here's a (sort of!) wintry one for sharing:

Who Needs Snow? -- both pages By Troylet

Font is George; sled is from Stretch Your Imagination; snowflakes are from Doodlecharms.

Good afternoon! Here are three for sharing. They were done as Christmas gifts, so I didn't want to post them until now. (One of the recipients sometimes lurks here at scrapbook.com!)

This one uses George for the hearts and Life is a Beach for the waves:

Love By Troylet

This one uses Mickey Font (my favorite!) for the title:

Growing Up By Troylet

And, this one uses Animal Kingdom for the animal heads and Mickey Font for the title:

Discover By Troylet

All caught up, and submitting my first entry for this challenge, my ATC. It's an ATC of a cat we lost several years ago. I did it for the Fuzzy Friends Challenge over at The Scrappy Tree (http://thescrappytree.blogspot.com/2011/01/fuzzy-friends -challenge.html).

Fiona ATC By Troylet

Flower is from Simply Sweets. Fiona was a princess, so I included the twist of sparkles, of course!

Here's my layout for the challenge. The font is Simply Sweet. The tree is made using George, based on an embellishment I saw in a store. I thought, "I can do that!" and took a picture of it with my phone. :-P

Deck the Halls By Troylet

Dropping off a couple to share ... and then perhaps upstairs to scrap!

Stars from George, font from Cuttin' Up:
little drummer boy By Troylet

and

Party hat and font from Cuttin' Up:
party animal By Troylet

Checking in to drop off my final project for this challenge! It's a Valentine, created with Simply Sweet (hearts and the block behind them):

Valentine's Card By Troylet

And, it's got the twist of hearts!

Almost forgot to say ... it's based on a card I saw at Everyday Cricut.
