DT assignments for Made With Love

Hello friends, how is your week? This week is my turn for DT to showcase the amazing wonder of Sizzix Dies. I have to admit I am one who does not want to spend on these... but now that I am given 1 machine...... I have to say I kept buying these versatile dies. A good investment!!! And now with Christmas coming soon, I just bought Glitter American Craft papers.... that plus Sizzix Dies... gorgeous outcome!!! I get to work with a Christmas theme one and a set of swirls. Love love how versatile the swirls are. I made a 2 pager......."Xmas Parade" .... something must have hit me.. I have not made a 2-pager in many years of my scrapping life. Today I decide to leap right in...... scrapping last Dec Disneyland photos. Thank goodness, this 2pager turn out 'well-balanced'.... hahaha.. I was standing up the whole time, with these pages on the floor, making sure it look balanced and not 'loopy'......LOL! With gorgeous papers from Making Memories and Prima flowers, Vines... match made in heaven! I love this Sizzix Die - STAR!!! With red glitter paper, I LOOOOOVVVVEEEE it! Another page: Where's Santa? ... wanted a Christmas page but not so much of it... so i redefine "santa' in my journaling........ Journaling: I dont believe in Santa but I've met many in my life.. they dont wear red... have long white beards but their giving touched my heart. They are the real Santas!!! i love these branches (Sizzix Die).... small enough so it does not overpower your page... Tuck some here and there... you get a whimiscal look!!! I added red crystals and painted them with GOLD Shimmerz.... I told you I can't live without Shimmerz Gold. You should get 10 bottles of these.... LOL! And this cute reindeer... I give it a RED NOSE... and painted its horn(is that what you call it) with Gold Shimmerz .... again!!! Yes.... again.. it just adds that omph.... that glitz to anything!!! And I 'made a scarf' for this cutie reindeer... see that red Maya Road Trim.
Ok, that's all the DT work now for Made with Love.
Hop over and take a look... I love love what Aida said about my style..... check it out.
She is one very kind and generous lady. Love talking to her.
I never did know how to define my scrapping style...I am usually lost cos I am such a 'go with the flow' scrapper... ie.. flow of my creative energy, flow of the products... but I guess there is 1 'default' flow I love.... distressing, inking and adding textures and dimension. A bit shabby chic... a bit 'weird'...... hahaha
Ok, I am off to make some Christmas Cards while the mojo is still there, and the Sizzie Dies are still around.
See ya soon! Thanks for dropping by my blog today! Luv u!

What great pages, Wendy! You are really rocking the dies here. I am like you.......never wanted to invest in any die cutting machines. I must be the only one left on the planet that doesn't own any. ;) I really like what you've done with them, though. That large star looks great....love the glitter and the 2-page design. And what a sweet reindeer. The small branches are awesome, too.
