Its a "Witchy" kind of Wednesday.....

Good morning my crafty friends! I am stopping in this morning to share two adorable cards I created for Halloween using the Charmkin Cuties "Broom Witch" and "Potion Witch" files from KaDoodle Bug Designs.


Are these witches not the cutest!?!?!


This card was created using the Charmkin Cuties Broom Witch file.  I had fun creating this cute little witch and adding different elements to the card.  The paper piecing itself if mainly made from Bazzill Cardstock, with the exception of her hat and part of her dress. I used paper from the American Crafts BOO! Paper Pad.  As for the two spiders, I added black flocking powder from Inkadinkadoo to the center to give them a "fuzzy" feel and added some stickles to their legs.  My sentiment, "Happy Haunting", is from the Julie Nutting "Witchy Poo" cling stamp set and was heat embossed.


My second card was created using the Charmkin Cuties Potion Witch file.  Again, most of the paper piecing was created using Bazzill Cardstock, with the exception of the hat and dress, which was made using paper from the Love Nicole - Vintage Halloween 6x6 Paper Pad.  I also used glittered cardstock from the DCWV Glitter Cardstock Matstack to create the dots on her dress and her hat.  The sentiment, "Trick or Treat" is from the Teresa Collins "Masquerade Party" stamp set and has also been heat embossed.

Below is a complete list of all supplies and products used to create these two cards:

My "Cutesy Fall Bear" paper piecing was made using Bazzill Cardstock and has been inked using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Each piece was adhered together using Art Glitter Glue. For accents, I used a white gel pen, Nuvo Crystal Drops (on the center of the flowers), and a touch of Pearlescent Chalks to add rosy cheeks.

For my card base, I used ReCollections Cardstock and patterned paper from the Love Nicole Autumn Splendor Paper Pad.  I used one of the Flag Banner Dies from Craftin Desert Divas to cut out my flag banner for my sentiment. My sentiment, "Happy Fall One and All" is stamped using a stamp from the Craftin Desert Divas, Thankful Squeaks Stamp Set and is stamped in Red Royal Ink from Hero Arts.

You're the PUMPKIN spice to my LATTE!

Hello everyone!! I am stopping in this morning to share a quick card I created using the "Fall Pumpkin Treats" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I LOVE a great Latte, but I especially LOVE when the Fall Season begins and you can go just about anywhere and find everything Pumpkin flavored...Yum, Yum, Yum!!!  I saw this file and knew that I just had to create my own kind of Pumpkin Spice Latte.


I started off by uploading the file to Cricut Design Space, re-sized my image accordingly and then cut out all of the pieces using Bazzill Card Stock.  I then inked each piece using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered them together using Art Glitter Glue. To finish off my paper piecing, I used a white gel pen to add some highlights.

My A2 sized card base was created using ReCollections 110lb. Ivory Cardstock. The patterned paper used is from ReCollections Harvest Delight Paper Pad. My sentiment, "You're the Pumpkin spice to my Latte!", was written with the "Be Mine" font from Cricut Design Space using both the Adobe Clay and Moccasin Cricut Pens.  To finish off my card, I added some sequins from Hero Arts and ReCollections.

Below is a complete list of the products and supplies used to create this card:


Bazzill Cardstock

ReCollections 110lb. Ivory Cardstock

Love Nicole - Autumn Splendor 6x6 Paper Pad

ReCollections Harvest Delight Paper Pad

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Pine Needles, Antique Linen

Art Glitter Glue

Ranger Multi Medium Matte

Cricut Design Space - "Be Mine" Font

My Little Picasso...

Hello everyone! I am stopping in this afternoon to share a one page 12 x 12 layout I've created using the super adorable "Artsy Fox" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I have been trying to create some layouts to have ready for my son as he will be starting Pre-School in about another two weeks or so. I know he will be coming home with plenty of arts and crafts projects, and now I have the perfect layout to put some pics of my favorites.



I started off by uploading the Artsy Fox file to my Cricut Design Space and resized all of the images accordingly.  Once I was happy with the fox pieces, I then resized the "paper" of the easel to measure 3 x 5 and created my three photo mats.  I also resized the paint border and splotches and attached them to the photo mats leaving enough room to be able to slip some pictures under them, so it gives the effect of the paint being splattered slightly over the picture. I also added my title, "My Little Picasso" to the easel portion by using the writing feature of my Cricut Explore.

Below is a complete list of products and supplies used to create this layout:


Patterned Paper: DCWV Limited Edition - The Homeroom Stack

Bazzill Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Gathered Twigs, Tea Dye, Aged Mahogany, Blueprint Sketch, Scattered Straw, Hickory Smoke

Art Glitter Glue

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks - Shimmer Shades

Title (My Little Picasso) was written using the "Baby Steps" font and "Geode" Cricut Pen


Thank you for taking the time to stop in. I hope you enjoyed today's project.
Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!!!

1st Day of School Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Stopping in today to share a "1st Day of School" scrapbook layout I created using the super cute "Pre-K Buddies" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. My son will be starting Pre-K in September and I thought this layout would be perfect to add to his scrapbook.


I started off by uploading the "Pre-K Buddies" file to Cricut Design Space and re-sizing the image. I also made the chalkboard, frame and notebook paper on Cricut Design Space as well. On the notebook paper, I used my Cricut to write some of the information and draw in blank lines so that I will be able to fill in all the information once I add his picture. All pieces were cut using Bazzill Cardstock, inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered together using Art Glitter Glue. 

Below is a list of products and supplies used to complete this layout:


Bazzill Card Stock

Patterned Paper: DCWV - The Homeroom Stack

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Fossilized Amber, Faded Jeans, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles

Art Glitter Glue

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Thank you for stopping by to visit.

Scrapper's Delight's August Planner Inspiration Event

Happy Friday crafty friends!! Today Scrapper's Delight's is holding their August Inspiration Event and I have created this weekly planner layout for the occasion.


For this planner layout, I used the A5 My Basic Planner 1 kit along with the Twilight Owl Digi Stamp from Scrapper's Delights. 

I know that I may sound as if I am repeating myself over and over again, but I truly enjoy creating planner spreads using these digital planner kits. They are jam packed with so many elements and options to choose from to customize your planner to your specific needs. 

I kept this layout pretty simple as you can see and did not add too much as I wanted plenty of space to be able to go back and fill in my schedule, appointments, etc. for the week.  I love this sweet digi image of the Twilight Owl. I colored these images using both Copic Markers and Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I also wanted to add a bit of a night time effect around my images, so I used my Faber-Castell Soft Pastels to lightly blend in a night time sky.

Below is a list of the products and supplies I have used to create this planner spread:



Copic Markers

Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils

Faber-Castell Soft Pastels

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

I hope that you enjoyed my project for today!! 
Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!!
