catching up

sorry I sort of dropped off on my posts again. I am going to share a few today all in one post.

This one was fun. I was totally inspired by a friend's digital layout. I used some Ranger Distressed Oxide inks and papers from some older DCWV Halloween stacks.

The next one is using the January kit from the Hip Kit Club.

Also using that same January kit, some sugar skull picks that a friend gave me, and a lacy paper from DCWV.

and one more page using an exclusive cut file from Disney Scrappers and papers from the carousel collection by Crate paper

So Happy Together

These are two of my favorite layouts. They were both so much fun to create and I got to use fun colors. For the first layout it is totally a halloween page but the photo wasn't traditional colors so the big vellum spiderweb that I cut with my silhouette helps the theme. The papers are Pink Paislee's Turn the Page. I had a wood veneer spider and I wanted him to be purple so I glittered him up.

And for the second page I used watercolor paper for the background. I watercolored these great colors to go with my photos using Twinkling H2O watercolors. I decided it needed something so I added white heat embossed sparkles print from an Echo Park background stamp. I used a cutfile from the Silhouette store with white cardstock.

Trick or Treat!

When I got to spend the week at Disneyland with my Disney girls squad, we dressed for Disneyland Halloween and went to Mickeys Halloween Party! It was so much fun that I can not wait to do it again! If you ever get the chance, you have got to dress and trick or treat!
This first page is us in New Orleans Square having the famous Mickey Beignets and for halloween they had Orange Creamsicle with silver stars. omgosh so yummy!
The star paper is from Crate Paper Carousel and the other papers are from Pebbles Midnight Haunting. LOVE that collection.

so since I LOVE coloring, I have lots of colored pencils from Crayola, Prismacolor, and Polychromos. I thought it would be a waste not to use them in my scrapbook so when I drew the pen line around this page and journaled, I decided to use my colored pencils to add some shading to the corners. The Crayola pencils are kind of not good for coloring except if you want a really really light color for shading so they are perfect here. Plus they are super duper cheap and have a 50 or 100 pack if you want to add a fun thing to your stash. 

This next page was for a DisneyScrappers sketch and it incorporates an exclusive halloween cutfile too. I used Echo Park HalloweenTown papers. I used a stamp background from Echo Park in the background and added some green splatters and purple rhinestones. Yes the spider does have mouse ears!



I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends. This layout was for a scraplift challenge. I saw a layout that I loved by Emma Wood on Cocoa Vanilla and recreated it a bit with my photo and mostly papers from Paige Taylor Evens Turn the Page collection. This is a fun way to use a bunch of patterned papers.
