Just A Scrappin's DT Challenge -- Vacation Time!

Hi Everyone!

It's time for another Just A Scrappin' Challenge.  This week's theme is "Vacation Time" using only the colors blue, white, green and brown.   I know we think of beaches as vacation time this time of year but it is so hot right now that this is the vacation that this Queen B would love to take right about now!!

The card is 5x7 using Recollections cardstock from Michaels.
The mountain scene was cut at 4 inches, the car was cut a 2.5 inches.  Both images were cut with the Cricut Machine using the Campin’ Critters cartridge.  To adhere the images, I used double-sided adhesive dots from Recollections and the Martha Stewart ballpoint – tip glue pen. This is especially great for small areas.

For the larger area, I used my ATG gun. Love that tool!! 
Also, another tool that I absolutely love to use is the Making Memories tweezers.  Now, these tweezers work backwards from regular tweezers.  You squeeze to open the tweezer tip,  grab your tiny piece of paper and once you let go, the tweezer closes and holds the paper for you. This comes in very handy for small and tiny pieces of paper to prevent glue from getting all over your hands and possibly the paper sticking to your fingers instead of the card, lol.
Additional supplies that  I used was the Gelly Roll white for the stitching look, Celebrate It ribbon, Bling by Jolee’s, Martha Stewart glitter for the “snow” on the mountains and my favorite……………..drumroll please…………..
Inkadinkado blending chalks on the Vacation tag.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my card.  How cute would it be to possibly put somebody’s picture on the in inside of the car window?!!!!!


  1. What a lovely card. Take me with you on a mountain vacation. I need a break from the heat

  2. Adorable! I love the winter scene! I'm sure most of us thought of summer when we heard vacation! Way to think outside the box!
