Happy Halloween and a reminder

Happy Halloween!

It is raining hard here today, I feel sorry for all the little trick or treaters.  I have one last Halloween project to share today.  I upcycled a garage sale plaque to create this Halloween one by using my My Mind's Eye Lost and Found collection.  The candelabra and spider are cut with my Teresa Collins Chic and Scary cricut cartridge.   

A close up of the spider, I used on of the Fancy brads on him.

I also wanted to remind you that today is the last day to play along with my Pink Inspired Challenge.
I used my Crate Paper Little Bo Peep collection and some May Arts Jute Twine.

Random Thanks

I had this posted on my Challenge blog last week, but I hadn't posted it here so I thought I would.  I used the  Random collection by Crate Paper and of course some May Arts Jute Twine to tie it off.

Watch Me

I am very happy to be a Guest on the Scrap it With A Song blog today.  I love using songs/lyrics as jumping off points for my scrapping.  This week the song is "Somebody's Watching Me".  I used it to talk about some things you would see and some you wouldn't if you 'watched me'.  I used the Echo Park For the Record 2 alsong with some Unity Stamps and Elle's Studio journal cards.

I was inspired by Elle's Studio sketch last week.

Now be sure to head on over to Scrap it With a Song to see what the rest of the Design Team have created.  Thanks to SIWAS for having me as a guest!

Just a Note

I just had to play with my Seen & Noted paper by Pebbles again, love, love, love them!  I used my Cricut Flower Shoppe to create the flower and leaves.  The pocket is one of the Library Pockets & Cards.

On the inside I inked up some new Unity Stamps She Always Knew and Modern Chit Chat, I thought they worked well together.


I am a Guest over at Pretty Little Studio this month!  So excited for that awesome opportunity!

Today we are sharing our projects for this week's sketch challenge.  I was sent the Scaredy Cat collection to work with and I had so much fun with it!  This is the first of a few projects that will be featured over at Pretty Little Studio.

Crate for Mom

I hadn't used any of my Crate Paper's Little Bo Peep collection so I figured it was time ;)  I used my Cricut to cut the frame, flowers and leaves.  I am playing along with the Moxie Fab Letter Sticker challenge.

Echo Park Tags

I took a break (for now, hehehe) from Halloween and created some Christmas tags.  I used the Very Merry Collection by Echo Park, available at Jessica Sprague.  I cut the tags with my Cricut, Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  I then just adhered the pattern paper with some Glue Lines® and the embellishments with some Glue Dots®.  They went together very quickly and I am happy to have a start on my Christmas tags!

I wrote this blog post while participating on the Glue Dots design team.

Pretty Little Studio Halloween

I decided to play along with some more Halloween papers.  All the supplies on this card are from the Scaredy Cat collection by Pretty Little Studio except of course the Twill Ribbon and Net Ribbon from May Arts.

I was inspired by the Inspiration Challenge at Pretty Little Studio:

I used this week's sketch from Pals Paper Arts:

Fall Leaves Me Happy

My Jillibean Soup DT intro was the other day and I thought I would share the card here too.

October 31

While my  Pebbles Tricks and Treats collection was still out on my desk I thought I would play with it again.  I also snuck in some chevron paper from the Sunny Side collection.  The Net Ribbon is from May Arts, the black tulle (miss spiders bow) is from CTMH and the sentiment is a Pretty Little Studio tag.  I cut the web and spider out with my Silhoutte.

I am playing along in these challenges:

And finally, the colors were inspired by Dynamic Duos

I finally had some mojo so I played with my Pebbles Tricks and Treats Collection, my absolute favorite Halloween collection this year! LOVE the patterns and the colors.   I used the 6 X 6 paper pad along with the Tricks and Treats Thickers.  The textured cardstock is from American Crafts the the twine is from Divine Twine.  I cut the moon and bats with my Silhoutte.

I am playing along with the following challenges:  Cut it Up: Halloween, Just Add Ink: Chevron and Shopping Our Stash: Halloween.  I was also inspired by:

I was inspired by the sketch from My Sketch World.

The Sweetest Thing Honey Collection

Photo heavy post today...

I am sharing the last of the projects that I created for the My Mind Eye blog.  For today I used the wonderful The Sweetest Thing Honey collection.  I LOVE the big floral paper it is just so pretty!  

I am playing along with the Unity Friend's with Flair as I have used a number of different Unity stamps.

First up is the layout I did.  On this one I added some May Arts Twine, some Unity stamps and I cut the title with my Cricut.

Some Close ups

Next up is the mini album that I created.  I LOVE how this turned out, and I had a lot of fun creating it.  I started out with a CTMH chipboard album, then just played with paper, SRM Stickers, stamps, my cricut and some twine.  
You can see some stamping and the SRM stickers here.  

Love these film strip stamps from Unity and I used my Cricut Art Philosophy to cut out the 'doily'.

Another Unity stamp

Some more Unity stamps, Twinery Twine and SRM Stickers.

A couple of close ups

Now that is it for the MME projects that I created for their blog.  I did however, make some items with the new Lost and Found Hallloween line but they were picked up for publication so I can't show them.  I love the Halloween collection too.

ETA:  Angela featured this project in the Unity Newletter!
