Thank you

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a great week so far!
Can you believe it's already the middle of April?? Hard to tell around here with the cold temperatures lately :( We've had just a few days above 50 and that's about it so far. We are under a winter storm for tonight and tomorrow with up to 6 inches of snow.... I am praying there are wrong!!!

On a happier note.....It is my DT day over at My Craft Spot and I have a fun project to share with you today using the Simply Sentiments stamp set.

I was checking out the files at My Scrap Chick and found this cute file I just had to make :)
 It is called the Nail Polish Bottle and Cap Trio
Isn't this just a fun 3D box??
I kept it the size the file downloaded in because I wanted to be able to put a couple small bottles of fingernail polish inside, a file and maybe even a gift card. 
The pattern paper is from Paper Studio and I embossed the layers with the Divine Swirls folder for a little texture along with some inking of the edges with TH victorian velvet.
The tag is My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies 2 metal die and stamped the sentiment with the Simply Sentiments stamp set.  I wrapped some fun tulle around it, tied a bow along with black Jute String bow and a pretty flower to the center. 
As you can see, the perfect size for adding a fun little gift inside:)
It would make a cute party favor idea for a birthday or bridal shower, don't you think?

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Just B Creative Crazy April Linky Party
2.) DL.ART April Linky Party

Dancing in the rain

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Happy Friday all!
Wow, this week flew by fast, don't you think?  It's been SO nice to have sunny skies and temps in the 50's this week! Absolutely lovin' it!

Today I have a fun card to share using an adorable cut file I picked up from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons called  Rainy Day Critters. Oh my gosh, if you haven't checked out Lisa's files, your missing out! She has SO many cute files and  remember she always has a" Freebie Friday" file available for you too!

When creating this card, I also kept in mind some fun challenges to play along in :) I haven't had the chance to play in some of these for a while so I was happy to join in!
Hope you like it :)
The card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and base layer 4 x 5 1/4.  The pattern paper for the base layer is from Simple Stories Home Spun collection that I won over at Paper Issues a few weeks back.  I also used Echo Park ~Sweet Girl collection for the darling raincoat, boots and umbrella.

I cut a couple mats from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge at 3 3/4. I embossed one of the layers with the SU chevron folder. The cute frog is part of the Rainy Day Critter file and cut on my cameo. I inked the edges on some of the pieces to add dimension along with glossy accents and Viva Ruby Glitter to the raincoat and boots.
I stamped a darling little face on the umbrella with PK173~Great Vibes Robot stamp set, added rosy cheeks, freckles and glossy accents and then tied a bow on with green apple Divine Twine.
The label was created using My Creative Time's~Curly Label and Stitched Curly Label metal die. The sentiment is stamped with My Creative Time's~I'm here for you Rain or Shine stamp set. I finished with 3 Girl JAM daffodil crinkle ribbon for the double bow.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Paper Issues Pocket full of Sunshine (used sunshine in sentiment)
2.) 3 Girl JAM Challenge Anything Spring
3.) Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #92 Flowers OR Buttons & Bows
4.) DL.ART April Linky

Happy Easter!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Good Morning!
It is my DT day over at My Craft Spot and have a fun project to share with you!  If you are looking for something to mass produce fairly quick and that kids would enjoy.....here ya go!
I picked up some yummy peeps at the store. Most kids (I think) love marshmallows right? Well, I took them and dipped each one in Wilton's vanilla candy melts and then sprinkled fun little candies on them.
After they set up, I put each one in a clear pretzel bag which fit perfectly. I made a tag using the Ribbon Banners~Straight metal die. I stamped the sentiment with the Happy Easter stamp set and then tied them to the pretzel bag with lilac twine :)
 Super easy and the kids will love them!
There is still a little time to join in the "Easter" challenge we have going on this week at My Craft Spot.  Be sure to come link up your project for a chance at this weeks prize:

My Craft Spot Challenge #132-Happy Easter

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone and Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a great couple of days with sunny skies and temperatures around 50 over the weekend!! It felt so good and makes you think SPRING is around the corner! The snow will be gone before we know it~yeah! Can't wait!

We'd love to see your Easter creations!
The challenge this week is:
Easter
Here is some inspiration:
Another cut file I just couldn't resist:)
I cut this cute little Chickie box from a file that I picked up over at My Scrap Chick and cut it on
 my Cameo. You can find the Trio of Chicks cute file HERE
I also made the the Trio of Bunnies box about 3 weeks ago and if you missed it and want to check it out, go HERE.
I think these would be perfect little Easter baskets for the little kiddo's, don't you? 
Isn't she adorable??
I stamped the cute little face with Pk 1357 Sweet on You stamp set. A set that is forever being used lately...I just love the different eyes on this set! I also added some rosy cheeks, freckles and some glossy accents. The cute bow is My Craft Spot's Small Bow metal die.
I inked the edges of the pieces with Ranger Spiced Marmalade. I also added some texture using the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder to the feet for a fun look. The banner is My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners~Wavy and the sentiment is stamped with the Cute Critters stamp set.
 The cello bag is filled with yummy chocolate candy bars to go along with the Chickie. I tied on bows with Buttercup crinkle ribbon and mandarin bakers twine and added a fun tag. The tag is created with My Craft Spot's Tiny Doilies 2 Tiny Doilies and the Lacy Banners metal die and the sentiment is stamped with the Tiny Tags 3 stamp sets.

Happy Easter

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week and for those of you having warm, sunny conditions...could you share some with me?? We are in for another .....Oooh, I hate to sat it.....snow storm with significant amounts of snow, up to a foot for tonight and tomorrow!! Yikes!
BUT.....thank goodness, we are looking at possible 50 degree temps by Sunday...there is hopefully an end to this crazy winter!
Yippee, I can't wait!!!

I had a little time in my craft room today between cleaning my room and doing laundry to put together this really quick card. Seriously, some of these Silhouette files are fast putting together and this is one of them :)
My card base is from the Silhouette store Design #20602 and cut on my Cameo. The pattern paper is from my scrap bin but I think it was from a Martha Stewart collection.  I wrapped some maraschino twine from My Craft Spot around the card and tied a double bow and then a small gem to the center.
The bunny is also from the Silhouette store Design #37961. Isn't it cute? I love the little face with the whiskers. I stamped the fun sentiment in the center of the heart with My Creative Time's Teeny Tags Greetings stamp set and viola, done!
I wish they all went together this quickly, lol! 
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) DL.ART  Challenge #129 Thankful Thursday~Bunny
2.) DL.ART April Linky Party 
3.) Just B Creative Crazy April Linky Party
4.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #97 Anything Goes
