Spidy Pumpkin

I am so excited about the coming season.  For some reason when fall hits I feel renewed and ready to go.  When the leaves fall it's like a new year ( I know, I know, spring is usually the start over point). I love the fall smells, decorations and the cool, crisp air that comes. 

So, when Stephanie Barnard came out with the new pumpkin fold it card I just HAD to have it!! Then she came out with the makers challenge over at Sizzix using her fold it cards and boom, this card was born lol. I am so happy with how this turned out and I think I'm going to make some for Thanksgiving to!

I've had this paper sitting around for about 4 years now.  I love the different patterns so I haven't been using it in fear of using it all up.  But the web paper just seemed to fit!


Supplies: pumpkin fold it die,  bewitched patterned paper, tangerine tango, whisper white, chocolate cardstock,

Live Simply

Live Simply, that is such a great way to live. I love how dogs have such a simple life.  All they need is food, water and lots and lots of love. 

I found this great picture of one of my dogs and just had to use it.  I can't believe I hadn't yet!  I took this during the winter but love how it turned out using this summer paper pack I found. 

I used the sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap to create this.


Here is the finished project.  How can you resist that face?!

Amazing

Good morning! Time for another amazing card sketch challenge from Sketch~N~Scrap! This was a bit of a challenge for me. I couldn't figure out how to get the sentiment to work for me.  Then I remembered I have TONS of paper punches!

Here is the sketch


And here is my card.  All the cardstock and papers I used came out of my scrap stash.  I have way to many so it was nice to get to use a "few" up.

Happy Summer

I can't believe it's already August 1st! Where has the time gone?  My youngest will soon be starting his sophomore year and he's my last to finish up school.  So not ready!!  What better way to "prolong" summer than with a great challenge from Try Stampin' On Tuesday!! Not only do they have a great sketch but they have a optional theme of "Dog Days of Summer". Perfect.


I chose to use a watermelon stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  This set is just to cute and I love the step stamping it has to create multiple colors.





Wild 2

Well, I finally had time to get the second page done for the Wild layout I did a bit ago that you can see HERE. I really love scrapping in two page spreads and when I still had tons of these rock climbing photos left over I knew I'd have to find another sketch so I could finish it.

I decided to use the sketch challenge from Sketch~N~Scrap to compete this! It came together so fast I think this was my quickest layout yet (in under 30 minutes)!!

Here is the sketch


As you can see I did change it up by flipping it.  This works best with the first half of the layout


I decided not to add any embellishments as the paper is pretty busy already and it keeps it simple.

Joy

Okay, I couldn't resist! I had to do it!!  I've been seeing so many advertisements for Christmas in July and when I saw these stamps from Stamps By Judith and Heather I knew I'd be using them asap!!

I love anything to do with the time between October 1st and December 31st! If I could craft fall and holiday all year I SO would.  I loved using it for this sketch from the Sketch~N~Scrap Sizzlin' Summer Crop. 


Here is my card. This came together so quickly that I think I may have found my Christmas card this year.  Even the cutting out didn't take that long!






Wild

I found these cute pictures of my oldest and thought instantly of using the new paper stack I found.  He's now 20, but I remember this day so clearly.  He wasn't to fond of trying many of the activities that were planned that day but for some reason the rock wall really caught his eye.

Here is the sketch I used from Sketch~N~Scrap Sizzlin' Summer Crop!


And here is my finished layout.  I actually have enough pictures that I'm most likely going to create a second page for this.
