Scaredy Cat Dog?

My kids begged for this outfit for the dog.  So of course I had to take pictures!

The leftovers of paper from the Scaredy Cat Layout Class were perfect to make this page! I used Thistle card stock for the background!  The spider web cut with the Artbooking Cricut cartridge was left from the workshop as were the Complements Boo, stars and sentiment (I want Candy!).  

I cut the biggest circle with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge possible in the dot/argyle paper from Scaredy Cat and divided it in half with a zip strip with bats on it. Trimmed my photos to 3 x 5 to make more of the spiderweb visible and matted them in the stripe and the Sunset!

I also added a few bling, our Sparkles, because everything is better with bling!  or is that bacon? Hmmm, I think both!

little red wagon has a challenge right now to do something Halloween, spooky, not much of a fan of spooky but it is definitely Halloween.

Scrap & Play Challenge #12 was to create something spooky too!

Step Right Up- Photofull Fun- Throwback Thursday

I have been on a mission to use up my stash and not open new packs of paper or buy any unless it was for a class or workshop! This is some old paper called Fanfare from before our two sided cardstock weight!  Those were BIG packs of paper!

The new Canary color was perfect with this paper since I am out of the yellow that matched it!

This layout was done after one of the PhotoFull classes this summer with a few alterations for less pictures!!  What is PhotoFull, check it out here!  The class is only $8 and you supply your paper and scrap lots of pictures (19 photos on this one!)

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #77- Pathfinding

I have been working on my Pathfinding Layout Class so the papers were on my table.  So I grabbed the Chocolate paper and using the Bone Folder folded it in half for the card base.  
I also had a bag of random leftover Cricut cuts sitting on my table from the page a made for the ABC Blog Hop on Saturday. In that bag, I found the leaves and the Colonial White shape in.

 Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge was used to cut the leaves and the Colonial White  shape.  The Harvest Happiness stamp set was used to stamp the leaves that were cut from the retired Elemental paper, which is still available in Studio J.  

The owl and two embellishments on the bottom right are from the Pathfinding Assortment and were left from my Pathfinding Layout Class layouts!

The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter U

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter U.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

My U is Utah and Use your stash!  Last year I went to Utah for a Close to My Heart Album Retreat and then stayed for a few days after with my husband!

One of the places we went to was Park City and on the way there there was this fabulous barn with the leaves changing all around it!  That became to focal point of my page.

Wanting to use some of my stash I went digging for the right colored paper!  This was some paper I bought on clearance a while back It was perfect!

The real "Use your stash" part was the leaves!  I used them for a Family Wall Canvas in 2011 and they were sitting on my table next to the Cricut!  They blended perfectly with the page and were the finishing touch it needed.  

The leaves were stamped on the retired Elemental paper with the never retiring Harvest Happiness stamp which coordinates with our Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!   Cut the leaves on the Cricut and stamp them and you are done!
Harvest Happiness 

Click on the names to see other projects with the Harvest Happiness stamp or with Elemental Paper!  Love Elemental?  It is still available in Studio J Online Scrapbooking Studio.
