Halloween Fun

Yep, your at the right spot! Yes, this is a card and not a scrap book page! Halloween is almost here and although I don't usually make cards, I wanted to make one for my daughter. She is away at college and I plan on sending her a little Halloween care package and made this card to go along with her surprise. I sort of lost my scrapping mojo last week and maybe this card will help me get back to scrapping.

Every thing I used was stuff from my stash, including the stamp set. I must have bought it three years ago and this is the first time it has seen ink!

...and the inside

It is day 10 of the LOAD (LayOut A Day) and I have managed to make 10 layouts so far. Hopefully I can keep up and make it through the end of the month with 31 layouts!

Here is a one page layout that I made today.  I wanted to use the laser cut title from Paper Wizard that I have had in my stash for some time now and I wanted to use papers I have had in my stash. I sort of went a little crazy a few years ago and bought a lot of Disney themed papers and embellishments.  I had hard time with this one. It kept looking like someone threw up on my layout no matter how I arranged the title, picture and papers. To keep it simple and not too busy, I only added 4 decorative staples as embellishments.

Supplies Used:

Birthday Bash

Hello and happy Monday! I hope many of you got to sleep in today and take an extra day off for Columbus Day. I have another layout for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I tried to use a lot of papers that had pink in it!

Link Up For Pink is having it's second annual Link Party for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you are a card maker you can also donate your cards to Link Up For Pink and they will be delivered to two breast cancer centers.

I found a layout on Pinterest that I thought was cute. Unfortunately the person that pinned the layout did not pin to the original post but only the the main blog. Soooo I can still give credit to the blog owner but not the original post. Scrapbook Generation was the inspiration for this layout:

I am also submitting this to Anything But A Card challenge #3. The challenge is obvious but you must use a stamped image on your project. I used a cute little happy birthday sentiment from Imaginisce.

Supplies used:

My Minds Eye
Bling from my stash

Cricut Cartridges:

Lacy Labels,
Create A Critter
George & Basic Shapes

Dancing Queen

Hello and happy Thursday. In other words, Friday is almost here! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday#131 is asking for projects that are pink

A few years back I was in a border swap at SCS and since I am trying to challenge myself and create a layout a day at Let's Scrap I thought I could save time and use a border I made for the swap. HA! For starters, it took me 15 minutes to find this particular border.  I knew I had it, I just needed to find it! Then, I only made myself the border (Picture and Purrfect) none of the accent pieces although I did save the files in my Gypsy for a later date. Then I had to change Purrfect since Purr was in pink and you couldn't see it against the pretty DP. I also cut the original border to make it into a banner. Finally I had to make the camera. After all that I was done and just added some bling. It's a pretty simple layout but I think it is a little fun and works.

Here is layout using a sketch I found at Let's Scrap. There is a little challenge going on at Let's Scrap. It is day 2 of the LOAD (LayOut A Day) challenge. No prizes, just a way to challenge yourself. The idea is to make 31 projects in 31 days. So I am hoping I can challenge myself and get a lot of scrapping done during the month of October! 

I am entering this page in the Challenge Me Happy challenge # 31 - Anything Goes.
