Just Because~Card Holder Gift Set

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
I hope your having a great week so far~
I want to share this fun project I made after being inspired while surfing on Pinterest.  Here is the link where I found this fun tutorial at. This would make a great little gift set to give someone and of course you could change it up a bit just by using different papers and/or embellishments for birthdays or holidays.
I started with cardstock from SU and the pattern paper is from My Minds Eye. I decorated the front of the card holder layering a few panels down. I used the DIA to give the edges a fun distressed look.

 I created a pretty white panel with the Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor die. I stamped a background using SU Kinda Electric stamp set. The butterflies are SU Butterflies Thinlits die set. The larger butterfly was cut with wax paper for texture and the smaller butterfly embossed with the Divine Swirls folder. The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's~Say it Big stamp set.
The inside was layered and distressed using papers from the same paper pad. The butterflies again from SU Butterflies Thinlits die set. The twine is Caribbean Twine is from the Twinery.
I made these adorable matching cards (8) to fit inside using the same supplies~ The border is a Recollections border punch and sequins from my stash. The images and sentiment on the cards are from SU Kinda Electric stamp set.
I finished with cute little dew drop embellishments (skittles) from my friend, Carri at DoubleClick.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Craftin Desert Diva's Challenge~Things with Wings
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) DL.ART October Linky~Anything Goes
4.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #110 Anything Goes
5.) Sweet Stamps October Anything Goes

So Grateful For Friends

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you had a great weekend!
 Ofta, it definitely feels like fall today! I'm not sure I am ready for that yet especially after being in 100 degree weather for the past 10 days.

Well, we are back from vacation and had a wonderful time! We started by flying to Phoenix, Az and spent a few days there with my husbands brother and lovely family. We then followed with a week in Sonoyta, Mexico. The weather was absolutely perfect for us~Spent most of our days at the
pool or beach, yay! 

I was even able to get together with some of my bloggy friends again this year while visiting in Arizona~It was awesome connecting once again with these super sweet ladies and looking forward to it again next September! 
Here is a picture of all of us: 
TammyCarri, me and Julie

Here is a picture of the resort off the balcony of where we stayed at in Mexico:
Beautiful sunsets every evening

I will be playing catch up this week~I will be stopping by to visit and see your creations that I missed while I was away. 
Thanks for those that came by my blog for a visit and left sweet comments on my scheduled post while gone, I really appreciated it!!!

A Standing Ovation..just for you!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion 
Hi Everyone!
I hope your having a great week~
Today's post is pre scheduled as we are on vacation this week in Mexico. I do have a few more projects that will be posting to so hope you stop back to visit :)

I  had a little time before we left to quickly whip up a card to play in the Pirate themed challenge going on at Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon. Lisa has a lot of new files the last few weeks and just
 couldn't resist!
I used the Pirate Octopus file for my card:
I cut a black mat and then chose pattern paper from Paper Pizazz for the background. Then, with foam adhesive I adhered this cute octopus from PPPR in place.
I added a border along the bottom with a SU punch and the cute sentiment is My Creative Time's~Many Greetings stamp set. I finished my card with some fun skittles from my good friend Carri at DoubleClick.
I am also entering this in the following challenges:

I have a quick birthday card that I have pre-scheduled to share with you today using some fun new papers from SU and stamps and dies from My Creative Time.

I started with some new SU papers for my card that were release recently. I used watermelon wonder and Mint Macaron card stock and ink. I just love these two colors together.
The base layer has a fun stamped background using My Creative Time's~Family is Everything stamp set.  The yummy cone is created with~You Make Life Sweet stamp/die set and the little faces are also from this set, cute ha? I added foam adhesives for a bit more dimension and adhered it in place.
I added a small panel along the bottom and used a SU punch to create a fun border. I tied on this gorgeous watermelon wonder lace ribbon for the bow and fun metallic sequins to finish it up ;)

For my friend

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week.
We are leaving tomorrow ( yippy) on vacation for a little over a week, yay! Do I sound excited??Oh...I am really looking forward to some R & R this trip! I am also meeting up with some bloggy buddies which I can't wait!
 Thanks Carri so much for setting that up~you're the best!!

 I will have very limited internet in Mexico so I do have some projects pre-scheduled to post that I hope will inspire you. I will be back soon to visit you and check out your creations while I was away upon my return.

Today, I have a fun and quick little 3D treat to share with you~ I wanted to share this last week but time got away on me :( They went together really quick so if your looking to mass produce a fun project for the little kiddo's or even Teachers, this is perfect! Arya has a couple special friends she met the first few weeks of school and will be giving these to them :)
Also, as you can see it can be switched out with any treat that fits in the slots~I did a couple pencils and some yummy licorice to show you a few idea's.
I started with Jaded Blossoms Scallop Slider and Topper Die for the base. I found the adorable little owl with apple at the Silhouette Store #64830. Isn't she cute?
After piecing the owl together, I added foam adhesives and popped her in place. I added a flower to to her, some doodling and a cute tag. The tag is the Treat Flags Die and the sentiment is stamped with the Simple Sayings 3 stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Paper Issues How 'Bout them apples
2.) 3 Girl JAM Sept Linky~Anything Goes w/ribbon
3.) DL.ART September Anything Goes
4.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #109 Anything Goes
