Tic Tac Toe

I wanted to make something a little different for my Designs on Cloud 9 DT project this week. So I was thinking about games and vacation and how my daughter loves to play Tic Tac Toe with us, so this is what I came up with.... I hope you like it.

I will try to give you an idea of how I made this. I apologize in advance for my horrible directions as I am not very good at explaining things.
1. I imported the sun and palm tree from the Pink Paradise pattern set and the flip flops from flip flop family set into SCAL2
2. I added a rounded edge rectangle from the SCAL shapes library
3. overlapped, sized and postitioned them the way I wanted them
4. copied the resized files and pasted them onto page 2 in scal
5. went back to page 1 and then unioned (made one piece) the sun, palm and rectangle together
6. I cut the board and the base of the flip flops out of heavy duty cereal boxes
7. I then cut all the seperated pieces out of card stock and patterend paper
8. chalked, inked doodled and assembled.
Now I need to laminate all the pieces so they can actually stand up to a lot of handling.
Sorry again about my horrible directions.
Thanks for visiting!

Listed on Ebay 12 x 12 two page layout using cutting files from

Designs on Cloud 9

This layout will fit 2 4x6 photos and 3 4x4 photos... all elements are placed so they will not interfer with photos.


Hi all, It is so darn Hot here in NJ, that today was a crafty day in the nice cold basement while the kids play and watch movies down there with me. I finally got around to doing a page for my kids scrapbook ( I have so much cathcing up to do it's CRAZY!!)

Anywho, here is a personal layout I made using the...

Groovy pattern set from .

(I used all the pieces from the set on this one page layout & they fit perfectly, I didn't even have to resize them when I imported them into SCAL2!)
I know the pics aren't from the sixties, but when I saw this set I thought of the pic of my daughter with the shades on making the peace sign w/ her hand... so I went with it. ~ Thanks for looking!

went off of a sketch from Sketch Support

This cute 2 page layout is going to a Facebook aquantance that was asking fellow scrappers if they could help her make a scrapbook for a family that was in the hospital with their litle baby boy Dennis who was waiting for a heart transplant. Sadly baby Dennis has since passed.
