Christmas bow

This is an embossing folder we have currently in stock and how easy would your holiday cards be with this. I just used metallic paper and added a Candi Dot.

Fall Pinecones

 Last page from my class so now I have to find time to get another layout class created and on the fall schedule to teach.
I used a stylus and pop dots to round the pinecones to give them some depth.

Fall Flutterfly

 Another beautiful paper that we only had a few left for sale. It has been here for 3 years and wasn't moving so I pulled them all and made a page for class. And then everyone wants the paper. Go figure. I added a doily die and butterfly die both by Cheery Lynn. And the flourish is Cottage Cutz. We also just used the flourish in a make-n-take at Picture This. Gals love us giving them more than one idea for uses for their dies. The flower layers are also Cheery Lynn. I just added pearls then to the center and to the butterfly and poof! A pretty page just in time for fall.

Fall bike

 This is a page from a class I taught last week. The paper is already beautiful so it only needed a few elements added to make the page complete. I had used the bike in a card class last month and couldn't wait to use it for fall.
The alder tree die and bike are MB. And the tiny leaves are IO. We have a make-n-take coming up in the store also using the tiny leaves. And the best thing? The die cuts multiples at once. (pretty paper is Moxxie)

Cancer Crop

Hershey Bar Reindeer

I used a burlap paper design and wrapped it around a candy bar and then added the rest. I used to give my kids and nephews decorated candy bars for Christmas and Easter. They loved them. It is endless the ideas you can come up with. This is very simple so you can make several quickly!!

Here's a fun little gift idea for this holiday season. For a favorite teacher or for kids. I just used my various oval and circle dies and punches to get the shapes. The whiskers are 2 petals from a flower punch.

All That Glitters Snowflake

Now that our Annual Christmas Extravaganza is done.....all of us gals can start posting all the projects we've been hard at work on for the past several months. They stay top secret until the event. We promised 75 fresh, new designs this year and we ended up with 162. So that is a lot of hours into all those projects!! Some will be offered in upcoming classes so be sure to check out our full class board. Others were make-n-takes that day. Some the product sold out that day so if you weren't part of the event...then you missed out.

This one is using glitter papers and a Basic Grey snowflake die.

Fall is in the Air

 A fun card with lost of elements. I am not happy unless there are a thousand pieces. Its so neat that a lot of our regular customers can come in and look at card samples on the floor and be able to tell which one of us gals made it just by our style. Gives me warm fuzzies.
This card has product from numerous manufacturers so I wasn't biased this time at all.....I spread the love. 
If you love all the ideas we share with you on the Picture This's blogs then please leave comments or be sure to tell my staff you appreciate it.

Sitting Purrty

 Another fun card from a class I taught. The best things about my classes.....almost all of the pieces are already cut out for you. Win! Win! gals so support your local scrapbook stores and sign up for classes and events. Most of the dies used on this card are Memory Box
The stamp is Great Impressions and I thought it went perfect with the bike.

Golden Dragonfly

 I love about you? This one is done with gold mirricard. I taught this in class over a week ago showing my students how to use stencils, copics and the Ranger spritzer gun to make subtle backgrounds.
The dragonfly is a Cheery Lynn die....of course. The foliage is MB as well as the stencil. We carry all of these products at Picture This. And we ship out all the time so if you see something on my blog or any of my staffs......just give a holler and we will send it out in the mail the next day.

One sticker sheet.....several pages

 We got in these cute puffy stickers and I used every one of them on 5 pages so there were no stickers left. The top page hit the floor as a page kit. The rest are just pages for sale. (one sold before I got a photo)
 This cardstock is already embossed with the circles and design where snail is. I used a sanding block to bring out the white inner core. Then coordinating Candi dots were added in some of the embossed circles.
                                                                  Easy peasy page.
                                                          Another easy peasy page. I hate not having my mats double mounted. But I was trying to use up all scraps without taking any more cardstock. I double, triple or multiple layer my photo mats in my personal pages.

Fall Turkey

 I was trying to move papers around on the sales floor to make room for a lot of the new papers arriving and this had just one sheet left. so I set it aside to do up a page for sale. The adorable turkey is made by my talented staff at Picture This. I just added a few leaves and some pinecones to complete the page.
The embossing folder is no longer available so we only use them then in our exclusive kits and on pages for sale. The pinecone is a IO die.

Hello with Fringe

I used the Flower Fringe Cheery Lynn die and made just the straight lines instead of turning it into a flower. Love the results. I thought of making a tiki hut on a scrapbook page next with the same die.
The butterflies are a MS punch and the Hello is IO.

My Furrbabies

 I know there is a little girl out there that follows my blog and is having kitty withdrawl. So thought I share some kitty photos to make her day. (smile McKenna)
This is my Sassy Siamese Diablo. He is getting cranky in his old age but still a sweety pie.
 This is Mini Might. My husband brought her home a year ago. She is a curious little stinker. Into everything. We have had to put baby locks on our cabinets to keep her out. And she hauls stuffed animals from the basement up 2 flights of stairs that are bigger then her. I think it's a game to her because I will carry them back to my boys room....and the next day she will have hauled them right back up.
 This is the ever famous Lucy. (Lucifur) She was feral and chose me. God send her to the right home because no one else would put up with her and I love her to death. She hisses at everyone but me. I have numerous scratches/scars all over my from her bipolar mood swings. Thankfully her and Mini get along great so they can tear through the house and wear one another out.  Lucy has her favorite ball that she will play fetch with.
And finally, my gentle soul Shadow.  He is so quite and sweet, never meow for anything. He has his favorite spots in the house and every once in awhile will come to me for lovings. 
My husband built a Catio a few years ago and they all love being outside in that.

Christmas Lamppost

Last one from pages I made over the weekend as pages for sale. I also got several more cards done for our Christmas Extravaganza. Those are top secret until the event. Be sure to register ahead of time for that. We have been super busy at Picture This creating over 150 fresh samples for the 2015 season. No lack of inspiration when you come here!!

 Two more pages for sale from the same paper....just slightly different versions. I added one of our vellum Quotes to one and one of our diecut titles to another.

The Magic

 Another page for sale. It always amazes me how the beautiful papers get down to just one left and then no one wants to take the last one.  So we are always making one sheet wonders here.
I embosses the photo mat with a poinsettia folder and added some pearls and a doily to complete the page.

Hometown Flash Floods

We had heavy rains over the weekend and then flash flooding in my home town of Eleva. A lot of water in a short amount of time. And now it's raining again today... We don't need that.

Color combo

 I like this color combo. Of course they didn't show up as vibrant in the photo.
All the dies used are Cheery Lynn today.

Life is Sweet layout

I taught a layout class earlier this summer and am just now getting around to upload to the blog. There are not enough hours in the day.
 I should've taken a photo of the backside as well since I always cut the center out when I can and reuse. So the floral mattings are actually from the section I cut out. Less waste and less weight to the albums over time too!

The flowers are the Upsy Daisy die by MFT.
