I had a great time participating in the WeScrap.com Wicked Halloween Crop this weekend.  There were games, make & takes, and lots of great challenges.  I didn’t get as much scrapping done as I had hoped because of some errands but I did get a few things made.  I got 3 cards made, using black as the background and using the same patterned paper on each one.  The paper I used was from Fancy Pants Designs.

I also participated in the Halloween Treat Container Make & Take.  These are the cutest little containers.  They are like a medium-sized french fry container.  I liked my first container so much I made a second container to take to friend.  I filled her container with a Halloween card and some yummy chocolate treats!!

MIA!

Wow, where has the time gone?? This summer is just flying by. I know I’ve been missing in action since May, sorry about that… I plan on getting back into my groove now. With a small vacation in May and our big East Coast vacation in June, I’ve gotten behind. I have layouts, new product previews and more to share with you; so stay tuned.

We had a big Design Team reveal this week at A Cherry on Top. We all got to use some amazing stamps from Inque Boutique.  Here are my creations:

For this layout I used the Savior Faire: Wish List Mini Stamp set. This set is great for your journaling. You can make lists, show steps or just highlight a few notes. 
My other creation was this card:
For the groovy flower, I stamped the paisley design on a transparency, cut out each piece, and then layered it on patterned paper to form the flower. I attached each piece with a glue dot, which gave the flower some dimension. The card actually opens right below the scallop.  Here’s a look at the “Perfectly Paisley” stamp set I used for the card:
Besides all the great paisley designs, you get some sayings, flowers and a few doodles. It’s a perfect set for card making.  Check out all the Inque Boutique projects from the A Cherry on Top Design Team reveal in the latest newsletter.

That’s all for now; but be watching for some Bisous news and a link to their upcoming fall releases! You’re gonna love the new lines.

Few cards to share

I’m behind on my layout scrapping but I’ve managed to complete a few cards with some left over paper. I can’t wait for warmer weather so my cards have a nice tropical feel to them. If only I could be on a nice, warm beach enjoying some sunshine and warm temperatures.

I love BasicGrey

Yes, I really love BasicGrey. They come out with so many incredible lines. The colors and themes are rich and varied. I’m amazed by the versatility of their product and I always find new ways to use their designs. One of their newest releases is the Archaic line. It’s a great rugged boy line. One of the things that enticed me to this line was the dinosaurs. I’m not sure why I like them since I’m normally not a dinosaur fan but the ones by BasicGrey are too cute to resist. Here’s a layout and card I created with the Archaic line. To see all of BasicGrey’s awesome products click on the Archaic banner and check out their website.
