The technique I used was dry embossing on my title. I also used my Big Shot to cut chipboard letters, which I've been wanting to try for a while now. It worked out great! I also tried cutting felt with it - not so good - I think I need a different type of felt, maybe?! I also wanted to try and make my own die cut embellishment. I started trying to make an owl with my Big Shot. I just couldn't get it to look as cute as I had envisioned, so I gave up and used a little owl embellishment I found at Michael's! I did use my Cricut to cut the tree though - and stamped the trunk to look like wood. I was happy enough with how it turned out. Here's a close-up of the tree and my title.

I have been eyeing DCWV's "Green Stack" for a while now. I went to Hobby Lobby for some retail therapy yesterday and finally bought it!! It has some really fun paper in it! I knew it would work well with our camping pictures and some of our recent vacation pictures!!
Thanks for the challenge Kristie! Now, if I can just get up the nerve to pull out my sewing machine....
Thanks for looking and have a great week!
