Happy Halloween!!

Here's to hoping that your Halloween is full of more Treats than Tricks!  I wanted to share with you some fun treat boxes that I made for the Halloween Spooktacular Newsletter event at Scrapbook News & Review.  They were super fun and pretty easy to make.  The basic box can be used for any holiday or event.

Speaking of Scrapbook News & Review, they are still taking submissions for their Holiday Sampler issue.  Click HERE to check out the calls and SUBMIT!!  SNR is a fabulous online magazine and I'm honored to be on their staff!

Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!

Fun Fall Layouts!

There's something about scrapping fall layouts that just makes me smile- apple picking, pumpkin carving, soccer and Halloween!  They are all so fun!  Here are two layouts that I have recently created with those fun fall themes!

"Fall Harvest" features a sketch by Becky Fleck and some fabulous Imaginisce Apple Cider Papers!
"Goal Keeper" features a fabulous Inspiration Team Sketch by Lucy Chesna at My Sketch World and the super cool soccer papers from Scrappin' Sports & More!
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you come back soon!

It's time to start thinking about Halloween and I was in that kind of mood when I worked on Lucy Chesna's card sketch for the "Inspiration Station" at My Sketch World.  The Inspiration Station is when we take one of Lucy's sketch and use it a little differently by turning it, adding elements, subtracting elements, etc.  The sketch for this card is based on the October 1st card sketch and then rotated to the right.  You can see some more ideas to do with Lucy's sketches on her blog and the MSW Forum.

Here's my card:

I'm loving the new Halloween line from Echo Park!  It's so much fun!  Thanks for stopping by!  Come back soon!

Going Card Crazy!!

I have been having some fun making some cards lately!  Woodware USA Stamps are the featured stamp manufacturer at AWDML this month.  I got to play with thier  "School Tots" set and my Copic Markers!  I am by no means a pro at this Copic thing, but I'm getting there!

This card was created for Scrappin' Sports & More.  I was inspired by a challenge that my good friend Suzann had posted at My Sketch World.  I painted some white cardstock with red paint, dried it with my heat gun and then ran it through an embosser.  Then, I sanded some of the paint off so that the embosssed design "popped" out.  I finished it with some of the December Calendars Made Easy papers from Scrappin' Sports & More and I had a finished card that would be very easy to reproduce for Christmas cards!
Thank you so much for stopping by!  I have really enjoyed watching my new Feejit gadget on my blog and seeing where my vistors are from- both NEAR and FAR!  I'm so glad you all are visiting me, and I hope you are finding some inspiration!  Come back soon!
