A fun lay out for Halloween

I am Norma, form Creating and sharing it.

I don’t know if you scrap your pictures soon after you take them, I try to do that almost always.

 3 years ago, during Halloween, my husband and I were pirates. We had a nice party, but then I got busy planning my vacation, buying some Christmas presents and I leave the pictures in a box waiting for me to return in January, and you know sometimes life happened, I never made the album I was planning until last month that I went shopping and I found a K&company collection with a sea theme. So I got it, and looking through the digis in the store, I found the perfect one Bear as Pirate digital stamp, for my lay out.

And here it is,

And you may ask, where are the pictures?  Well, my husband is not happy with the way he looks in them, lol!

Here is the handsome pirate I used.

And this is the whale that inspire the lay out.

Hope you like it, and if you have some pictures waiting in a box, you might want to pop on over to the store to check out the fabulous files. Some are on sale and there’s a 50% discount on orders over $10.00…that’s HALF PRICE!

Merci Beaucoup by Kim

Hello everyone!  It’s Kim from Katydid Cards.
I love Country French design and drool over pictures of homes in the French Provinces; the distressed woodwork and metals, mixed patterns and subdued hues just appeal to me.  So when I saw this Pazzles Craft Room EXCLUSIVE file, PCW Chicken Wire Card, I said, “Oui, oui, that card is for me”!  You can find this fabulous file (and many more) in the Pazzles image library Just search for PCW.  

You must subscribe to the Pazzles Craft Room to download this file, but you don’t have to own a Pazzles as they also come in the SVG format.   There are several subscription plans from which to choose.  Even if you only join for one month, you'd be able to download lots of amazing files. You can preview them here.
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut this using Stampin’ Up’s Basic Black, So Saffron and Whisper White (for the inside).  The patterned paper is Graphic 45’s French Country collection.  I changed the greeting provided to “merci beaucoup”.  I added a bit of “ooh la la” in the form of gold embellishments as I can’t leave well enough alone.

I dusted off my French to try make the sentiment inside...turns out I didn't remember enough to help, so I used the Google translator to give me the French phrase I wanted.  I think it pairs nicely with the greeting.

While you’re here, why not check out the PCW store where there’s a sale going on…50% discount on orders over $10.00  Yup, HALF OFF!  Click on the image and you'll be there!


Thanks for stopping by! If you get the chance, please come visit me at Katydid Cards and say hello.

Hello crafty friends,
Kelli here today from The Lady Cage with today's Design Team Post.
Fall is upon us so I had to do a fall card!

I used a few different files to create my project.
I used the "Happy Fall Y'all Harvest sign DS" and the "Pumpkin Smiley DS"
the pumpkins were manipulated with pic monkey to change the sizes, flip and remove faces on some.
I also used the "Autumn title V12 CF" but I only took the leaves and cut them on the cricut in several different colors (now I have them to use with lots of other fall projects)

I used distress inks for the Green on the card base and the grass.
the pumpins and sign are Copic colored and accented with gel pens.

Here is a second version -8x10" watercolored and I laminated this to be hung with a ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects.
Feel free to stop by my blog to see my other projects. The Lady Cage.
Stay crafty!
