Make It Monday // Snowman Card Peek {Top Dog Dies}

MakeItMondayButton-Christmas2Welcome to another Make It Monday! In southern California, we’ve had quite a bit of a heat wave, but this morning was rather cool and even a little drizzly. It felt fabulous! It was the first time it’s felt like anything but summer over here. Even though it was a tiny tease of fall, I had to run over to Trader Joe’s and buy everything pumpkin I could get my hands on 🙂 Feeling so festive, what a perfect time to share a sneak peek of a card using the new winter dies from Top Dog Dies!

I actually used several die sets for this card. Three to be exact! The dies are all fantastic and I love layering different elements to create unique cards. The new dies will be released tomorrow, so I’ll be back with lots of details tomorrow about all the yumminess on the card!

This is a little different from most Make it Monday posts, but I promise to be back tomorrow with all the details on making this card! As always, thanks for stopping by my little colorful spot on the web! Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Live (and plan) creatively!

My friend Amanda asked me to guest design on her blog Amanda Robinson Studio, so I whipped up this layout with full step-by-step photos and instructions showing the process to create the background!

Amanda makes gorgeous cut files — her Scribble Kit inspired my background for my layout! But since I don’t have a Silhouette quite yet, I only get to drool over her beautiful designs. Lucky for me, I’m a stencil fanatic and had picked up the Heidi Swapp Mini Stencil Kit that had a design very similar to the inspiration. I love the way this came out! Hope you like this colorful grid design too and head on over to Amanda’s site here to see my step-by-step process.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day! And if you haven’t signed-up for the Clicky Chick Creates email list yet, whatcha waiting for? You’ll get my downloadable “7 Must-Have Kid Birthday Photos” printable photo tips as my thank you 🙂  {Password is sent to you via email when you sign up for the email list.}

Live creatively!
