Dino Baby!

Trick or Treat? Well, today you get a trick from me. Not a terribly fancy one, but a nice and easy one, that's for sure!


Yesterday I finished up my son's Halloween costume, and snapped a couple of pics to remember him in it, before he inevitable barfs and/or poops all over it. I just love it. And he is, I have to say, the chillest baby ever. He crawled all over the house in that thing. Never took his hoodie off, waggling that tail up and down the hall. LOVE THAT GUY!


I jotted down a few thoughts about the day on one of those adorable October Afternoon journaling cards from my Early Autumn Daily Diary kit, and stole the "lovely day" card from my much-loved Tea For Two kit. I have a tendency to want to fill all empty spaces with journaling, so it is a real win for me that I was able to resist on that card.



As for my trick - I grabbed one of the 3x4 filler cards and the stamp set from the Daily Diary kit and went to town. I used a tinted embossing ink and white embossing powder to add as much contrast as possible. To finish it off I pop-dotted on that super cute "hello there" diecut. I love having a totally unique filler card every now and then. And it's so easy it feels like cheating.

I hope you're loving the start of our Holiday Season as much as I am! Happy scrapping, friends!

I'll Get You My Pretty

Hello and Happy Monday!! Today is the start of two fun filled Halloween themed weeks! We are going to show you some fun ways to use the Early Autumn kit to make Halloween themed projects!

I am starting out with a witchy layout for you today! I struggled a bit with what papers to use on this, her costume was only orange, black, and green, so most papers I tried clashed with the darker colors of her costume....but I was able to find some fun papers and embellishments that worked perfectly, and made for a fun layout!


I loved the little owl included with the Fancy Pants button pack, and knew that I had to find a spot of this layout for it! It went perfect with my witchy theme!


I have to say that I am loving that sequin pack from the Early Autumn kit! I haven't been a huge fan of them  in the past, but the colors and sizes of these are so fun, that they are making for the perfect embellishment!! Has there every been a kit item that you weren't a fan of, until it came along and fit in so perfectly with that kit??

Remember, that sub spots are still open for the next term! Make sure you head over here, and sign up for yours today!!!

Camp Covenant

Hi there friends! I'm so glad you've stopped by today! It's finally feeling like Fall down here where I live and I couldn't be happier about it.  The cooler weather arrived just in time for the Early Autumn kit. If you're like me, then the weather tends to affect what you want to scrap, and this cool crisp air is the PERfect time to pull out this kit.

This past weekend my family went up to the mountains with our church just to hang out and have a good time. I came away with such sweet memories with my kids and all our friends. It's my hope that this page reflects the great time that we had.



Thanks for hanging with me today! I hope that you too find inspiration in the weather! Happy Fall friends, and happy scrapping!

Halloween fun times

It is hard to believe that Halloween is almost here! 

Can you believe how quickly this year is flying? 

Today I have a fun Halloween-ish page to share with you that I made using the "Early Autumn" kit. This picture wasn't taken on Halloween but instead at a Halloween display at a local home store. I just couldn't resist taking this picture of my daughter and then scrapping it with this fun kit. She is normally pretty reserved so it was fun to capture this moment with her. 


I started off with a white carstock background. I trimmed 1/4" from each side of the white and then mounted that on a sheet of orange cardstock from the kit. I added some blue and green Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist. 
 

To create this background I just dipped a small paintbrush into the bottle of Studio Calico Mister Huey spray mist from the kit. I then added some more splatters with Mister Huey Dewey. After the ink was dry I added my title using a mix of the Thickers, alpha stickers and rub-ons from the kit. I also added a couple of October Afternoon enamel stars. 


I have never done this before but liked the look of the sheet of brads- don't they look like a strip of candy dots? I thought so and since I tend to not use all of my brads and they pile up in my stash I decided to use the entire sheet of Chickaniddy brads on my page. I just added some foam adhesive dots to the back. I used foam adhesive on back of the picture and strip of star paper as well to add some dimension to my page. 
I also used lots of little stickers here and there and finished it off with handwritten journaling around the edge of the layout.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Give Thanks!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I thought I'd pop in to show you a cute and QUICK little banner I made for my living room. With the little one dominating all of the ground space in the house, decorating has taken on a whole new challenge this fall! The idea here is to keep it high and light!


I have a thing for vintage windows. Like, a major thing. There are TWO on this ledge in my living room, and I have another even more amazing one that I added vinyl to, just waiting for December out in the garage. Where I'll put that one, I have no idea...


All you have to do to make this simple banner is choose a leaf cut file you like and cut seven leaves from two different patterned papers. 14 leaves total. Back your Thickers with some aqua paper and glue them to the leaves, alternating colors. Glue the extra leaves to the first and last letters of the words. Cut out several leaves from the October Afternoon paper and alternate them between the big leaves. Once everything looks right to you, hot glue the tips of the stems onto a long piece of brown baker's twine - one word per piece, so you have two separate banners.





All I did to mount these to the window was to stick a little piece of that amazing gold stripe washi over the strings and tie a bow in them. Easy peasy!

Fall Journal Part 2

Hello friends! Today I am going to share a title page from my fall journal with you. Though I plan on filling this journal with lots of pictures and stories, I also want to break it up some with simple pages that just express a word of feeling that I have about my family, and this time of year. So I thought that starting the journal out this way would help me to add cohesion, and I can also use this as event or section markers.

For this page, I went back to last month and used the Tea For Two kit, I love that bits and pieces from all our Noel's kits can work together to make cohesive projects!


I worked around the printed image that is already on most of these pages in the Fancy Pants brag books, It helped me to find a good central point for my embellishing!


I am so excited to share this in progress journal with you! Hope it inspires you to pull out your kits and put them to good use!!
