Just Because

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Good Afternoon my crafty friends!
Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day :)
Today, I have a fun card to share with you using stamps from my friend Tara over at Craftin Desert Divas. I coordinated two of the sets for this card. They are called Simply Said and Blooming For You. Tara also has a linky party going on so be sure to head over there and play in the challenge!
The details are HERE
I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base and followed with 3 panels about 1/8" increments. Then distressed all the edges with the zutter DIA. I then used Nesting Eyelet Square dies for the next layers.
The adorable bear is from the Blooming For You stamp set which I colored with copics and then a touch of Wink of Stella glitter pen for a shimmery effect.
I tied on a pretty bow with ribbon from SU that was in my bin. The pink Jute String bow is from My Craft Spot and then a small flower that was added to the center which was from my stash.
The tag is cut at 1 1/2 from Art Philosophy cartridge and the sentiment is stamped with the Simply Said stamp set and then tied on. The corners have citrus skittles that I picked up from my friend Carri.
For the inside, I used SU punches for the circle and the scallop.  I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly all from the Blooming For You stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
 1.) Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party-Anything Goes
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
3.) DL.ART September Linky-Anything Goes

Just for You

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
Wow, can you believe we are at the end of August already? Yikes! The summer has flown by so fast ~I can't believe it's time for school to begin again!

 I hope you have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and have a lot of fun things planned. I am definitely going to take all my spare time to play catch up AND get in my craft room...I am so ready for that!! Yippee!

A few weeks ago Arya and I dropped off a few goody baskets at the local coffee shop I go to for some of the girls who are leaving for college. Well, I recently was asked by the owner  if I would be kind enough to make a few back to school cards for her that she could also give to the girls leaving.
Of course, I said I would be happy to:) 
I went right to the Silhouette Store and found this adorable shaped card and cut it on my cameo. I used papers from Echo Park-Dots & Stripes for the apple and the rest from my scrap bin:)
The little worm is cut at 2 1/2 from an oldie but goody cartridge~Create A Critter. I stamped the face with PK1357 Sweet on You stamp set. I colored in the eyes, used glossy assents, added rosy cheeks and freckles. Cute, ha?
The tag is inked with TH frayed burlap and the sentiment and flourish is stamped with My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 stamp set.  
I made a smaller layer of the apple for the inside and stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments. I finished with tying on a fun bow using ribbon from my stash.

The Happy Couple

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.....we sure did!
We are all trying to regroup and catch up on some sleep after the big wedding weekend. The extended families have all left now and we have just a couple more days with my oldest son before he heads back home. I will be back in the swing of things real soon but before I go, I wanted to pop in quick to share just a few pictures at the Grooms dinner on Friday evening and of course, the happy couple :)
There are a lot of pictures but I haven't had time to sort through them yet so for now I will share these:

My Hubby & I 
My son and his lovely bride to be and the parents
My daughter and grand daughter, Arya 
(Little Arya ended up sick that evening with a flu bug. Now that we look back on pic's we can see she didn't look so good..poor baby!

NOW ...........

Here is the beautiful couple on their wedding day:
I will be back to blogging, crafting and catching up next week.....yeah!

I do!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone! 
I have a pretty wedding card to share with you today. I am sure you heard me mention that my son is getting married. Well, the time has come and the big day is Saturday!  We are so excited and happy for him and his bride to be and can't wait to share their special day with them!
Here is the card I made for the sweet couple:
I started with a Spellbinders Grand Large Label for my card base and layer. I followed with a Decorative Labels Eight and then a Floral Oval.
The adorable little couple is from Jaded Blossoms~The Perfect Match stamp set. I colored them with copics, fussy cut them out and with pop dots adhered them on a Spellbinders Classic Oval which I embossed with the sizzix flower folder. I also added a few rhinestones for a little bling :)
The cute tag is cut at 1 1/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge. I stamped the sentiment again using The Perfect Match stamp set and tied it on to a sheer double bow to finish the card. I also made another card for my niece who is getting married next month.
Hope you are inspired!

A little something just for you!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hello my crafty friends! 
I bet you are thinking...Wow, another post from Sherrie? Yup, had a little time this morning so instead of scrubbing my floors... I went to my craft room...yeah! The floors can wait, right?

I will probably missing some next week as my son's wedding is next Saturday and there are a lot of last minute things to do along with company coming. So, I will be returning as soon as things settle a bit. Can't wait to get back to crafting/blogging on a regular basis ;)

Today I have a quick but fun little gift idea to share with you. I frequent a local coffee shop and there are a few girls that will be leaving next week to go back to school. So, I thought Arya and I would put together a little gift for each of them with snacks and back to school supplies since they are ALWAYS so
kind to little Arya and I when we stop in :)
I filled a container with some yummy goodies that Arya and I picked out and then put it all into a cello bag and made a cute little tag for each of them. Of course, I had to go back and make one for Arya. She just couldn't figure out why there wasn't one for her! A few tears.....and.... well, we just couldn't have that now, can we?
The adorable book worm is a file from Miss Kate Cuttables in the Silhouette Store. I cut the tag at 3 3/4 from the Art Philosophy cartridge and popped this adorable little book worm on it. I stamped the sentiment 
using My Creative Time's Fun Gift Pocket Sentiments stamp set. I finished by tying them with a big bow using ribbon from my stash.
