Halloween Week: SCRAPBOOK

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share with you a quick -n- easy scrapbook page that was created out of scraps! Last year our Stamp Club made a Halloween card using the Seasonal Chums bundle … No longer a bundle but the stamp set and dies are still available.

And I used the cut out circles to create the background for today’s scrapbook page.  I simply just glued the circles on using the Tombo Multi-Glue.

The title was created from my computer, the kitty’s were created from the “Spooky Cat” bundle and “Spooky Night” Designer Series paper … also from last year (sorry … but we have to use up that paper sometimes!). I thought it was appropriate since she was dressed as a little kitty cat!

I wish all my scrapbooking would go this quick -n- easy! I need to remind myself to “Keep it Simple” because the photo is your reason for scrapbooking in the first place 🙂 

Thanks for checking out my blog today.

Hope you day is a beautiful one!

Flashback Friday: Autumn Fun

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Thought it was time to have some fun and reminisce about past fall fun! I’ve got two “punch” cards to share with you today and a scrapbook layout.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays (I love them all) but this is the time of year you can take a peek into the dark side all will having some fun… Halloween.

This card was created a few years back with this awesome border punch! If you punched on a 3 x 3 square piece, it created this frame … I’m sure some of you still have this border punch, so try it out because it also worked great when I used this frame on my scrapbook pages!

Now here is a really fun Halloween card created with punches …

I used the owl punch to create the ghosts (just flipped them upside down) … the pumpkins were created with oval and circle punches (3 each) and then you sponge the edges – I’m using Pumpkin Pie cardstock with Pumpkin Pie ink and then they are just layered together to create the pumpkin. They are so cute!

To make the gravestone I used a label punch …. I think the current “Everyday Label” punch would work great for the headstone! Then the stone was engraved (lol) handwritten by me.  It was just a super fun card to make.  Here is this years using the Paper Pumpkin September 2018 kit…

I simply used all the items in the kit to create this one … the headstones were the tags, and the ghost and bat were also in the kit… as well as the “spooky”.

My final share today is a quick and easy scrapbook layout…

You could easily replicate this page using the Natures Poem Designer paper and Natures Root Framelits dies. Actually this layout would be cute anytime of the year! It’s been a while since I got any scrapbooking done, maybe someday soon!

Thank you for stopping in and checking out my Friday Flashback! I love going back and looking at things I’ve done years ago.  Some can stay in the past (LOL) and some are timeless.

Have a wonderful day and hope to see you back tomorrow.

Throwback Thursday: Autumn Memories

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you doing? We got a little peek of sunshine yesterday but there is rain in the forecast for the next 7 days! I like my fall to have warm sunny days with crisp cool nights … the sun of the leaves, so pretty!

Let’s have some fun and explore some cute scrapbook page layouts today! I’ll be sharing some memories of autumns past with some scrapbook pages I have done years ago …

With all the fancy gadgets and dies out there now days, we have a tendency to forget how simple yet pretty creating your own “designer” paper can be!  You can totally recreate this page by using the beautiful leaves in the “Rooted by Nature” stamp set.

To create the multi-colored leaves; you could either use the baby wipe technique or ink up the “UnInked Spectrum Pad” on page 202 of the annual catalog.  My suggested colors are …

Now there is a beautiful fall color line up!  You can also see that while some images are stamped in full color, some are stamped without re-inking so you get a nice light coloring … this adds dimension to your page just by stamping!

My next page is one of my all time favorite layouts … I also had a great time with my daughter and her two little girls that day.  Cassie, the little blond picking pumpkins asked me what size pumpkin she could get, and I told her “anyone” she could lift!!  I could not believe how strong she was … or should I say determined!!

There is not a lot of stamping on this page layout, just a little decorative edge and an alphabet set which you can find on pages 174 and 175 on the annual catalog.  The color blocking is a fun way to coordinate a page and really make your pictures pop off the page!

I hope you enjoyed my little stroll down memory lane and I thank you for coming along with me.  If you have any questions about scrapbook layouts or how to get started with stamping in your scrapbooks … message me.

Have a great day ~

Throwback Thursday: Happy Easter

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m bringing back a really cute Easter card and a scrapbook page! With the products we currently have in our catalog today, you could easily recreate either of these two projects.

My “technique” that I was teaching when these were created was “Dying your Glimmer Paper”.  I taught my classes how to use your ink refills and either a sponge dauber or the Stampin’ Spritzers to color the Glimmer paper … NOW you don’t have too! With the beautiful colors of Glimmer Paper Stampin’ Up! has brought out for Sale-a-bration all you have to do is punch! No fuss required!

The first is my bunny card …

Both the bunny and the eggs were created with a combination of circle and oval punches … now, I think I would use the Layering Circle and Oval Framelits. You will have a greater choice of sizes this way. The little bunny tail was made with a flower punch.

I used the same format on my scrapbook page as I did on my card.  That is one thing that I have always taught in my classes.  Use what inspires you to create what ever you need.  How do you like the little chick I tucked inside the cracked egg? Again, made with the oval 🙂

OK, I have one more card that I want to share with you that I created using the “Dying your Glimmer Paper” technique …

You could easily recreate this card using the Sale-a-bration Glimmer paper. And you know what … the “Petite Petals” punch that I used to make this card is still in the catalog!!  You know what else would be cute … the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Just because something is old (Created 2014) … doesn’t mean it can’t be new again!

Thank you for stepping back in time with me today, I hope this inspires you to get creative and have some fun!

Have yourself a wonderful day ~
