Wicked Scrapbook Page

Happy Halloween! It's a very frightful here today with heavy rain and strong winds. We will be handing out Play-doh and Twizzlers to about 100 kids tonight, if they decide to brave the weather! This scrapbook page is my take on a sketch provided by Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine last month (above photo).

These 2 spiderweb photos have been sitting around waiting for the right stuff to happen! Do you have those photos? Either a group of photos - maybe a wedding you attended or some cool shots that tell a story - that you are waiting for the right time to scrap? I have lots of those photos! At the September Crop Kingston crop I took these 2 photos and the Monster Bash designer series paper with a goal to create a page using the sketch and borrowing some dies and stamps from my friend. I love how it turned out!

The sparkle from the Wink of Stella is very hard to catch with a camera. It was used to watercolour the word using Basic Gray and Smokey Slate ink.

Halloween Card Swap

One of the Facebook groups I belong to - The Joy of Sets - held a Halloween card swap! I knew the Monster Mash designer series paper would be perfect for this project. And it made it easier to create this card. The spooky lady was circle die cut and put onto a scalloped bronze foil sheet cut out. Both were cut using the Layering Circle dies. The bronze stars were a perfect finishing touch!

This Wicked card was created by Petra, my swap partner from the same Facebook group. Love how she used the eyes in the tree!

Snowmen in Green

This card is so fun and easy to make! The snowmen are already decorated and ready to attach to a card! You can find these designs in the Let It Snow specialty designer series paper. The designer series paper was cut at 2-3/4" in height and then at 5-1/2" wide. You can get 8 cards from each 12"x12" sheet for a total of 16 cards using this snowman design.

Pumpkin Thanks!

I used a pocket page layout from September's Crop Kingston all-day crop for inspiration to create this card. You can find inspiration anywhere! But I like sharing alternatives to my pocket pages as it shows that even if someone might not like making pocket pages they can still use my projects for inspiration. This card is a CASE of the one 4" x 6" pocket made to fit a 4.25" x 5.5" Early Espresso card base.

Nature's Beauty - Rabbit

I think my favourite stamp set in the Holiday Catalogue is this one - the Nature's Beauty stamp set. It doesn't have any sentiments but the images work for any occasion! The best part is $4 from every sale will go towards the Center for Addiction and Mental Health here in Canada. I love that Stampin' Up! is being a difference maker and we can help contribute to mental health by purchasing the stamp set. If you missed seeing it - check out page 63 of the Holiday Catalogue.

My card today was created for a team swap. Many different dies were used to create this card - the Stitched Labels dies, Stitched Shapes dies, and the Frosted Bouquet dies.

Cool Birthday Penguin!

One of my nephews love penguins! I don't own this set and had over looked it in the Holiday Catalogue. That is until I was at a recent Crop Kingston all day crop that I run with Lisa Henderson. She was using the Playful Penguins stamp set for a swap card. Upon seeing the stamp set I knew it would be perfect for my nephew's birthday! His mom let me know recently that he jumped for joy when he received this card in the mail - both for it having a penguin on it and the birthday money inside! Fills my heart to hear how much he enjoyed receiving his card.

The penguin was stamped in Black Memento ink and then fussy cut. The bow tie was stamped using the new Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink. The metallic ink does take a little longer to dry before you can cut out the image but I love the shine, the perfect touch for this cool penguin!

Global Stamping Friends blog hop - Treat Holders

Welcome to our October Global Stamping Friends blog hop where we are sharing Treat Holders - perfect ideas for Halloween treats, Thanksgiving favours or Christmas stocking stuffers!

I've created these mini curvy boxes using the Monster Bash designer series paper. It uses a 5.25" x 5.25" piece of designer series paper so you can make 4 boxes from one 12"x12" sheet.

The window on these boxes was cut out using the teardrop shape die that comes with the Mini Curvy Keepsake dies. Use a piece of Window Sheet to cover the hole from the inside before putting the box together. The Lace Trim was coloured using a Basic Black Dark Stampin' Blend and adhered with glue dots once the box was assembled. I wrote the boo greeting using the Basic Black blend.

Peacock Ornaments

The Brightly Gleaming Specialty designer series paper is beautiful with the Copper foil accents. This card has very little stamping and takes advantage of the beautiful designer series paper and the Gleaming Ornaments punch pack. The Stitched Rectangle dies were used to cut out the Whisper White main panel - the stitching gives this panel a little pop.

September Crop - In Support of Breast Cancer Action Kingston

A lovely day spent crafting this past Saturday! I completed a few projects that were on my to-do list. And yes, I make a to-do list for crop day or I either forget what I was supposed to make or forget something at home!

In everyone's grab bags was a full package of the Come to Gather designer series paper from the Holiday Catalogue. First up is my pocket page. On my two projects I used the Gather Together bundle that includes the Gather Together stamp set and the Gather Together Leaves dies.

This gift bag was created using a 12" by 7" piece of designer series paper scored and glued together and decorated.

Lisa created the scrapbook page and the card. I love how we created projects on our own but they work so well together. I love how Lisa used the Frosted Frames dies on her card.

I hope that you can join us next month at our Crop Kingston all day crop in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities. Registration is $30 and registration due by October 7th. See the link below to sign up for our next crop.
