Eek! Trick or Treat!!

With Halloween just around the corner I thought I would do a 2 page spread and be ready for the big day!  The DP used was from DCWV Ghost and Goblins collection and the CS is of course Bazzill, my favorite.  Love textured CS!

I made the die cuts with my Cricut Expression and the cuts are from SVGcuts.  I love glitz so of course I had to use Glitter Paper from Bazzill and Stickles!

Also used various Gradient Gem stickers from the Amber collection to accent the die cuts.  I also added  the Vintage Halloween Self-Adhesive Metal Stickers. 

Here are some close-ups of the die cuts

Sew Cute!

Tried something new on this card, actually sewed the top layer on for a new look for me!  I really like how this turned out so I went out and bought a little sewing machine for my scraproom, shhh, don't tell my husband, he thinks I'm crazy as it is :o).  I use BoBunny Double dot CS for the card base, pink Bazzill for the first layer and BoBunny Back to Basics a gift of love for the top layer and the strip.  Love how double sided cardstock makes it sooo easy to coordinate your papers!  Birthday wishes was stamped using SU stamps and punch and then popped to give it dimension.  I completed the card with the CC Pink Sunflower and the little green daisies from the Fun Flowers.  Also added some white Gradient Pearl stickers on the upper left corner, love those pearls!  Hope you like how it turned out to

Fall Birthday Card!

Fall is my favorite season of the year with all the beautiful colors!  I made this adorable fall birthday card using the Pick a Pumpkin Kit from  I used the Black Gradient Pearl Stickers from Creative Charms for the eyes.


Here is a layout showing some flowers with a  with Spring time look using a layout from SVG cuts Memory Garden Kit.  The centers were accented with the Vintage Jewels.  I find that I use these quite a lot because they add a nice touch to any layout or card.
