Let's Scrap Challenge

I was so happy to have some scrapping time today!!  I completed a layout for Kristie's "New to You" Challenge over at Let's Scrap.  We had to use a new technique on a layout based on one of the Let's Scrap Sketches.  Here's mine:

 

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.




Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper, Cardstock - DCWV (The Green Stack)
Green Patterned Paper for Tree - TLC
Fiber; Ink - CTMH Sassy Strands; Chocolate
Brads - Target Dollar Spot
Stamps - Cosmo Cricket (Mr. Campy)
Owl - Michael's
Pinecone Sticker - Pebbles, Inc.
Journaling Pen - Sakura
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
Cricut - Zoobaloo
Sizzix - Lollipop

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!
