Documenting Week 41 with Falloween

Happy Thursday! Danielle here today, and I have my Project Life Week 41 to share with you using the Noel Mignon Falloween Daily Diary Kit!

This weeks design team challenge is "Enter if you Dare Challenge"-Create an interactive element on your project

I created a flip up 4x6 card. I have a super easy tutorial a little further down in the post.

There are so many fun elements in this kit. I used one of the Simple Stories 3x4 horizontal card with the hedgehog & butterfly, fussy cut them out, the glued them to a vertical 3x4 card.

I also fussy cut the cute fox & hello friend from one of the Simple Stories cards and used them like little embellishments on my 4x6 card/photo. 

Another thing I enjoy adding to my Project Life is a screen shot of a new recipe I tried!

and now for the Tutorial of my flip up card

I used washi tape to adhere the 2 4x6 cards together, leaving just a touch of space between the two. Next I added some machine stitching for some extra detail, and also because I wanted to make sure that with all the handling of this card over time, the washi tape didn't peel off.

Here are some close up photos

I just love that Bella Blvd Washi strip!!

I used a few more of the Bella Blvd washi strips on this journal card, then fussy cut and created the "Today Was..." banner. I ran out of "w" alphas, you I used 2 "v" alphas and stitched them down.

Thanks for stopping by!

Falloween: Halloween

It's just a few days until my favorite holiday of the year and I seriously can not wait! I just love the magic feeling of Halloween night! I must have passed my love of Halloween onto my kids, because they are looking forward to it, too! They gear up for the holiday in their own way ... decorating their rooms and planning out their costumes ... last year, my daughter even used her own money to buy this cute tutu to wear to school during the month of October.


For this page, I used the Bella Blvd. Washi Tape booklet that came in the Falloween Daily Diary Kit to create a background of tape strips. I love all of the colors and patterns together!

I matted my photo on a piece of scrap orange paper from my stash and then game it even more presence by matting it again on the black/white polka dot paper from the Classic kit. The top is accented with a cute cluster of stickers and a Bella Blvd. clip.

The title was cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I added the wood cat piece in place of the letter "o" to make it a bit more interesting ... and then anchored the title on a solid orange circle.

I used the stamp from the Falloween Classic kit to create another circle accent using the "Trick or Treat" stamp. I also made those cute little bats with the stamp ... coloring them with a blue colored pencil to match the title.

How gorgeous is that thick orange ribbon that came in the Classic kit this month?! I couldn't resist adding it around the bottom of my photo. I accented the center of the knotted ribbon with one of the die cuts from the Daily Dairy kit adhered to a punched black cardstock hexagon.

The number thickers are from my stash. I matted them with white cardstock so that they would stand out a bit better on the polka dot paper.

How are you gearing up for Halloween this week? Do you have a cute Halloween t-shirt, pin, or something else you like to wear to show your spirit of the season?

Happy scrapping!

"Enter if you Dare" with the FALLOWEEN Daily Diary Kit.

Hi There, Lynn here with a new pocket page using this month's "Falloween" Daily Diary Kit. The design team has a fun challenge this week called "Enter if you Dare". We added an interactive element somewhere on our project. This weekend I went to Home Goods and loved their Halloween decorations. I used the Collect App for my photos this week. Here's the whole page.
My title card
For my interactive element I used a craft knife to cut open the door on this next card. I added a button from the kit for the doorknob - it looks like an eyeball!
When the door is open ...
Here's more close ups of my cards. Check out the cute couple...
I added some embellishments to the photos to dress them up!
Here's the last few cards.
Check out the mummy display ...
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your getting ready to scrap those Halloween pics!!
Have a great week!

{Apples & Peaches} with the "Falloween" Classic Kit

Happy Monday!  It's Meridy here this morning and today I will be sharing a double page spread using the "Falloween" Classic Kit.  I love the bright colors in the Pebbles "Woodland Forest" line of papers that pop up in this month's kit.  I decided to match the colors in these papers to the photos of my family picking apples and peaches last fall.

I really wanted to use the cute gnome paper on a layout, so I decided to use it in moderation, and place it like a border across the top of both sides of the layout.

Next, I took the wooden apple and painted it red to help it blend in with my layout a little better.  I also fussy cut a few butterflies out of the B side of one of the "Woodland Forest" papers. I added one of the epoxy buttons and a few enamel dots to these items and created a little sprinkling of embellishments along side of the main photo on my layout.

Again, I had fun with the title of this layout.  I was all out of "A"s by now, so I turned a couple of "V"s upside down and I think it reads easily.  The subtitle "Fall is in the Air" is actually part of an Echo Park branding strip.  I think my favorite part of the layout is the little chipboard tree.  I added 3 enamel dots to represent apples in the tree.  So fun!!!

As for the right side of the layout, I used an 8x10 collage print to fit lots of photos.  I do this from time to time because I cannot narrow down my photos sometimes and I want to include them all. 

Since the collage takes center stage on this side of the layout, I just layered a few simple papers and created a small embellishment cluster with some enamel dots, epoxy buttons, and a fussy cut butterfly.  Now I feel like these photos shine, yet coordinate with the papers on the layout.

And that wraps it up for today's layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  See you soon!

Hand of God | Falloween Classic Kit

Good morning, Noel Mignon friends!  Wendy here today sharing a new page based on a daring challenge...  "Enter if you Dare" - your challenge, is to create an interactive element on your project.
I chose to document Hurricane Matthew, our first run in with a hurricane in FL, and how we were truly spared devastation!

I used the die-cut spider web to portray the fear that a hurricane can bring.  I split my web in half to then serve as the doors to open up and see the miracle.  The cute wood buttons served as my door knob.  

The web is only glued down on the straight edge so that the pictures underneath can be viewed.  And yes, I found this picture on FB as Hurricane Matthew was moving in and it was a skull, truly scary.

But, God!

Winds were supposed to hit our town at 130mph, instead the winds were 65mph with a few 80mph gusts, that was a true miracle which I am so thankful to my Heavenly father for!

Fall Fun | Falloween Classic Kit

Hey friends, Laura here today sharing a new layout using my October "Falloween" Kit, it is so full of gorgeous Fall and Halloween goodness!  This week the DT is challenged with the theme "falling leaves" and asked to use leaves of some sort on our pages.

This is the layout that I created using photos of my son and his fiance and their little sweetie, Dylan!

I love this red patterned paper and knew I wanted to feature it on my page, which is how it became my background paper.  I kept most of my elements central on my page, creating a nice focal area for my photos!

I hand cut a little wood-grained tag and clustered my leaf elements around it.

These little Bella Blvd clips are so sweet, I used my sewing machine to adhere this one to my page.

Because I opted for a larger title, I added it to the bottom of my page, these Thickers are so great!

I have created a process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!

Supply List: American Crafts cardstock, Thickers and wood buttons; Pebbles patterned papers from the Woodland Forest collection - stitched floral and apple cider and wood accents; Echo Park "Fall is in the Air"  Autumn Bunting patterned paper and chipboard; May Arts ribbon; Bella Blvd clip and ephemera; Pretty Little Studios October cut apart phrase strips.  (from my stash)  DMC embroidery floss; Mr. Huey's white mist; Sharpie pen.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Be sure to check back daily for loads of DT inspiration!

I love fall!!

Hey guys, Michelle here with another layout using the fabulous Falloween Classic Kit. This week our pages are all about leaves which is pretty easy to do given the time of year!

For my layout I used the acorn patterned paper along with those wonderful leaf doilies which were perfect placed behind my photos.

I also used lot of those great chipboard pieces on my page, including the title.
So who else is having fun documenting Fall with the Falloween kits??
