I love your layout and I am always impressed with the sewing you do on things. My suggestion is show us how you do all the stitching.
Janice.....congrats! Please e-mail me your addy, so I can get your cartridge out to you!
And thank you all for your fabulous suggestions! I will be working on getting additional tutorials together to share with you! You have made my weekend with all of your kind words!

My card today features several of my favorite products and is for today's JustRite Challenge......to use Flower Soft! And of course I used A LOT of Flower Soft! In fact, I literally dumped it on my large heart and made it very, very sparkly! (Which as you know is right up my alley!) I cut the champagne glasses using my Cricut machine and the Sweethearts Cartridge. I used glitter to give the champagne sparkle. Prima flowers were added to the glasses. The sentiment is part of JustRite's new Wedding Nested Sentiments and Verses set. I added a few pearls, a doily, and my card was finished!
I apologize for the poor lighting, it gets dark so early here that lighting is becoming an issue! I guess it is time to break out the ole' light box!
Be sure to hop on over to the JustRite blog to see what the other designer's have come up!

I have a LO today of my cutie pie son eating an ear of corn. Weird topic to scrap isn't it? And apparently, I thought it was cute to take a picture of him eating corn.......twice in his life! The first one was when he was 16 months old and the second one was taken recently. I have to admit though that I loved how his recent picture came out! His blue eyes and dimples just melt my heart! I used Noel Mignon's newest kit, Dear Diary and my Cricut machine. The Country Life Cartridge was used to cut the ears of corn and the title.
I love layering papers and stitching right over them with my sewing machine!

For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps, so be watching for those, too, on November’s hops!

For my project today I decided to make a few ornaments that I could give out as Christmas gifts. I have many people who take care of my disabled daughter, bus drivers, aides, therapists, teachers, etc. I like to give a token gift with a letter of gratitude to the people that take such good care of my girl. I found these inexpensive snowflake ornaments at Hobby Lobby. I created the pleated circle using my Cricut machine. I stamped the sentiment in green using JustRite's Merry Little Christmas set. It was colored with Copic Markers. The candies were stamped again, cut out.......yes, I said cut out! (A bit of a challenge due to their tiny size!) and Crystal Effects and clear Martha Stewart glitter were added. I then adhered them to the image.
The circles were cut out using Spellbinder's dies circles and petite scalloped circles. I added Crystal effects to the edges and sprinkled more Martha Stewart clear glitter over it. The top circle was placed on the bottom circle with a foam square. The entire thing was glued on to my pleated circle with tacky glue and then adhered to the plastic snowflake.

I have a LO using Noel Mignon's Dear Diary kit and a sketch from Inspired Blueprints. I love how sketches take the thinking out of creating a LO. For me, the LO is the toughest part! I chose pictures of my guys carving their pumpkins and Kyle using the Cricut Cake machine to create his cupcake masterpieces! I kept the LO fairly simple and just added a few embellishments here and there.
I did a bit of layering here...........
