Croppin' Paradise Reveal

I love how this simple project turned out!! I used some scrap chipboard that I had laying around and covered it in Little Yellow Bicycle's Trick or Treat paper. I cut the pumpkin, bats, and ghosts from another piece in the collection. I added the title with a combination of Thicker letters and Labeling tape. I added some flourishes with my Papertry Ink Flourish stamps and some Zing embossing powder! Glued on a strip of scalloped cardstock and then added the ribbon! Easy, fun, and very festive!! Happy Halloween!!

Halloween Trunk or Treat

These two spooky witches and I were invited to a Halloween Trunk or Treat Party on Saturday night at my friend, Kay's house. There was hot dogs and chili along with good friends and lots of fun!! The witches are casting a magical spell on me . . . they were saying Bibbity Bobbity BOO!! Too cool!
Here Em and her friend Ben are playing on the swing set!! They had a blast!
Em's injury . . . she was jumping off a hay bale and bit it on the concrete . . . good thing Kay has a supply of Band Aids!!
The kids enjoying their stashes of candy from the trunk or treating!! It was so much fun!

Two Posts in one Day!!

These are the projects that I had to create for Craft Warehouse! I had sooo much fun this month! We got to use some awesome products from American Crafts: cardstock, patterned papers, stamps, flair buttons, buttons (glittered and regular), and rub-ons!! Part of our assignment was to alter a picture frame . . . I created the one above and the one below!

We also had to create 3 different cards and one had to include a photo . . . this part was my favorite part of the whole assignment!!

Then we had to create a layout!!

Thanks for looking at my projects!
If you have a Craft Warehouse in your neck of the woods, check out these great products!!

Busy . . . busy . . . busy . . .

Okay to start off with the layout pictured above is my reveal for Croppin' Paradise!! I got to use the Three Bugs in a Rug Let it Snow line! I love the papers and embellishments!!

The next card and layout were my Stdio 101 Oct. 1st challenge:
  1. Your layout can ONLY use hand cutting. No trimmers, punches or die-cutters allowed!
  2. Use at least 3 different patterned papers on your page
  3. You must make a card and a handmade embellishment with the leftover supplies from your layout.

The last layout is the Oct. 16th Studio 101 challenge . . . this is one of the funnest layouts I've done . . . I had a great time creating this layout . . .
  1. You must use (at least) 1 new and 1 old sheet of patterned paper on your layout.
  2. Use glimmer mist or a technique to get a similar effect on your layout.
  3. The subject of your layout must be YOU!

I've been creating other projects that I'll post later . . . I'm not quite finished with them all yet. School has been busy as usual! It's the end of the quarter next Friday so it will be a qeekend filled with report cards!!
Happy Sunday!!
