DCD Challenge #180 – Lions, Tigers, and Bears! (Oh, My!!)

At Die Cuttin’ Divas this week, we were asked to create a project with a lion, a tiger or a bear (or all of them) on it, or something inspired by Wizard of Oz.  I decided to use all three and make a mini album from a Michaels $1.00 chipboard album.


The lion and tiger come from Jungle Zoo Safari Too by My Scrap Chick.  The bear is My Sunshine Bear from Designs on Cloud 9.  The paper is from Nana’s Kids stack by DCWV.

For the bear and the lion, I was able to just “trace” the jpg file using Silhouette Studio software, but the bear file is actually a bear holding a shining sun.  What I did was assemble his pieces on my virtual mat and weld them together.

I downloaded Oz Wizard Cowardly Lion font from Fontspace for the title.

Here are the details for this week’s challenge.  It begins August 26, 2014, ends: September 1, 2014.  The prize is a $5 Gift Certificate from Digital Delights!  How delightful!

  1. Ok….I’m headed to Michael’s this morning. I’ve never made anything like what you did and love it. My grand daughter will be one soon. I worry about the rings though…how safe they are . I want to work with some type of chipboard ..cheap because I know she will tear it up. Your reject is adorable.
