Happy Halloween Layout by Nicole Martel

Good morning everyone! Nicole here with a fun Halloween Layout I created using my scraps. It’s been awhile since I’ve dug through my scraps and it felt good to put them to good use!

Initially, I was going to turn the photos to black and white since the purple did not go with the patterns, but I decided to leave it alone and add a little purple here and there…

I added some of the circle images from the stamp set within the empty circles to make it more playful!

I used the tiny row of circles to create lines for my journaling.

Design It Monday ~ {Beware}!

Hello! October is nearing it’s end and with that comes Halloween. Today, I’m sharing one more card featuring the Beware stamp set.

I had the die cut banner on my desk, so I decided to begin there.

Those little Washi Pieces from the set were stamped first followed by the Beware sentiment.

Next came the polka dot borders serving as the dangle-y portion of the spider webs.

I stamped the web images then fussy cut them.

After deciding where the banner would be placed, I stamped a trio of soft gray webs then adhered the banner. A little Halloween Washi tape and rhinestones were my finishing touches.

Wonderful Mixed Media Layout by Nicole Martel

Hello everyone. Nicole here with a fun mixed media layout I created using the Love Coupon Stamp Set. Just recently, I became an auntie and I am so excited. Edward and I are in love with Henry! He is so precious.

To begin, I sprayed white cardstock with pink and tan spray mists (Colorations Sprays) by Art Anthology.

I used a circle template to draw two circles overlapping each other in the center of the layout and then I cut the butterflies out from the patterned paper and mounted them on the layout using foam squares to add dimension to the layout.

I added a few additional embellishments here and there along with some stamped images. Love how soft and pretty this layout turned out.

Design It Monday ~ {No tricks, just treats}!

Hey there! It’s Lisa here today sharing a fun idea for a quick and simple Halloween goodie bag. Why buy pre-made bags when you can jazz up one of our Plain-White or Plain-Kraft Flat Paper Bags from the shop.

Project_20190915_0001-2 copy

First up, I added a strip of Washi Tape to the bag. Next came the stamped star splatters from the Journey Stamp Set. Using a circle die cut border, I stamped three images from the Beware Stamp Set set using a smokey gray ink.  I stamped and punched out two orange Jack-o-lanterns then added them to the strip with foam tape. The strip of circles begins and ends with a star from the Totally Stamp Set. No circle border die, no problem. Just use punches or die cut circles for the same look.

I finished things off with two Trick or Treats sentiments (Beware Stamp Set) and some glossy bat stickers from my stash.

Add those treats and you’re good to go!

Fall Layout by Nicole Martel

Happy Friday! I love Fall and I can’t wait to take some pictures of the leaves changing in my neighborhood. I decided to pull an old photo of Edward out to scrapbook. He was two years old. We went to the park this day and had a great time together…exploring and playing.

DSC_4629

I used the Fall Colors Stamp Set along with a variety of inks and paint to create the leaves pattern in the background.

A lot of thought went into this piece. Lots of stickers and embellishments carefully placed to frame the adorable picture.
