Autumn Gatherings Online Crop

I am having a lot of fun over at the Canadian Scrap and Swap Message Board!! I am hosting an Online crop this weekend. We are having a lot of fun!!! I am hosting three different challenges...
1. Word Scramble
2. Halloween Challenge
3. Christmas Card Challenge with a Sketch

Lots of fun!!

Julie and I had a fun time in my room creating some scrapbook pages! She has a whole bunch of scrapbooking stuff that she has bought over the years...and she hasn't scrapbooked in years. So the stuff we were playing with isn't current...but it is amazing the pages that you can still create with the Alsison Davis sketch books even though we are using product that isn't right off the shelves of the scrapbook store. The pages really turned out great! And I think it is great that she wants to create this book using the stuff that she has...and let's just say she has a whole bunch of stuff! And a Big sister who has a whole bunch of tools to stretch the capabilities of her stuff..

Cricut Halloween Banner and Mantel Decorations

So, I have been wanting to make a banner for a really long time, but....never took the time! So, I had some Halloween Paper that I had bought last year that I bought specifically to make a Halloween Banner. Well, I never did...but this year was the year. The paper is K&C Company. The stickers I bought this year are also K&C Company. I bought the orange spiders from the Doller store. They were rings, but I cut that part off. I used the banner cut on the Straight from the Nest cartridge. Black Hemp was used to tie the banners together.  I did use eyelets to reenforce the holes. The larger rosette green rosette  is handmade using the MS Score Board, and one of my border punches. The Black rosette is made with the larger Tim Hotlze rosette die. The letters were cut out with Plantin Schoolbook. cartridge. Then put through my xyron glitter maker face down. I used MS orange glitter to glitter them. I love that effect. The glitter does not come off at all!

However, once I had the banner made and tried to hang it on our everyday decore family room mantel it didn't look like much. So, I went to Micheals on Thursday and bought black leaves with glitter  (50% off). Then I bought the two orange pillar candles 60% off. Then I bought that decorated orange and black ribbon for 1.00. Cheap!! I had the black crow and the orange jackolatern already. But, I bought the Beware at the Dollar store. I wanted an elegant Halloween back drop. I think I achieved it...the green candles I had from an after Christmas Bargain. But, I thought they worked well with the colour scheme. This will be up for a couple of weeks

Graduation Card for Two Co-Workers

So...two of the girls on staff that I work with...completed their post graduate degree. So, I thought that I would make them each a card to recognize their accomplishments!!! So, I uesed Gloria's Sketch that she posted to make this card. I loved it so much and thought that it worked well. I had the Rosettes already made up awhile back, so I thought they would be perfect for this particular patterned paper!

Lisa's Sketch Support October Challenge Honeymoon Album

I haven't really started my Honeymoon Album...but, my friend Lisa at the CanadianScrapNChat message board is now hosting a monthly challenge that is designed to get us scrappers motivated! The first challenge is to use a Sketch from Alison Davis and the Sketch Support site. The sketch that Lisa chose was from week 13. It is a two page sketch that uses banners. You can check the sketch out here. It is a great sketch! But, ironically enough this has banners, and it was just over a year ago that all of us were criticing whether or not we liked banners or not. this layout uses the Cricut for the Kiss Me title. I used the Roly Poly font from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. It was so fun to create this layout, and only use the items that I have in my stash. It feels great to be using what I have...A special part of this layout is that I used some items from Lisa that i received in one of her other challenges that I actually won! The button brads and the decorative blue trim on the left hand side of the mage.
