Top 10 of 2014!

Hello blogging friends! I am sharing some of my favorite projects of 2014 in a fun hop with an awesome prize up for grabs that you can win just by commenting on the participating blogs. What prize you ask ...  why a $75 Gift Certificate to Paper Issues!!!!  The more you comment, the better your chances of winning. $75 can buy a lot of scrappy goodies that Santa didn't bring you!


Have we got an awesome hop for you, WOW! Take a look at this line-up.

Marcia Dehn-Nix <----- you are here.

You should have arrived from the amazing Jen Matott's blog. If not, you may want to jump back to start at the beginning. I tried really hard to whittle my list down to 10, but settled on 14 instead, (14 for 2014) Here are my favorites in no particular order. Links to download free cut files are included on a few.

I created this layout for Creative Scrappers using sketch #271. The paper is Echo Park Splendid Sunshine and Simple Stories Fresh Air.


This layout I had published in the September issue of Papercrafts and Scrapbooking Magazine and was created with Echo Park's Fall Reflections. That chevron cut file was a freebie. You can download it from Creative Scrappers here.


Here is a card I created for Xyron using the Graphic 45 By The Sea collection. The wood veneer nautical wheel is from Creative Embellishments.


Here is a layout created with some Doodlebug Snips and Snails collection.


I created this layout for Imaginisce using a PageMaps sketch. It won me an awesome prize from My Creative Scrapbook. The papers are from the Perfect Vacation collection.


Another Imaginisce  project for Thanksgiving using the Bushel O' Fall papers.


This Imaginisce layout was to be published by Northridge Publishing, and now I fear I will never see it again. They never returned it to me along with 2 other layouts. The papers are from the Outdoor Adventure and Colors of Christmas collections. If you would like my snowflake circles cut file, it can be downloaded here. After I went through all the work of welding those circles and snowflakes together I figured others might as well benefit from it :)


I created this layout for Love My Tapes. It too is based off sketch #267 from Creative Scrappers and uses the Santa's List collection from Teresa Collins.


This Easter banner makes me happy with its colored burlap and whimsical Imaginisce Welcome Spring papers and die cuts.


Imaginisce has an awesome new collection called Family Fun that I used to create these cards...


I am in love with the trendy triangles, Pinkfresh Studio chevrons, and washi tape on this next layout I created for Clique Kits. Their October kit featured Basic Grey's Second City and was my favorite kit so far. Be sure to check out their store. They have a massive clearance sale going on right now. If you use coupon code Marcia10 you can get an additional 10% off the clearance prices!


I love this card I made for a Xyron and Spellbinders swap using some Little Yellow Bicycle from my stash.


This layout of my daughter and her Great Pyrenees was published in the Winter issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today using the Fancy Pants Timbergrove collection and Creative Scrappers sketch #259! So excited to say it was chosen as the editor's favorite!


I created this canning lid pumpkin for Love My Tapes, inspired by one I saw on Pinterest.


Let me know if you have a favorite.... Then hop on over to the very talented  Ashley N Newell's blog.

Thanks for stopping by

  54. All your projects are wonderful! I'm going to be following you now! I guess my favorite is Snow Much Fun! What a great combination of die cuts, colors and sequin shaker spots (need to pin quite a few of these, too!) It makes me sad that Northridge never returned your layouts to you! I hope you're able to get them back somehow.

    Wishing you a year filled with joy and inspiration!
