Happy Halloween in about a month! (I have to put some brain power into what my daugther is gonna be for Halloween. Her and Daddy like to dress up in a cute combo. Last year they were a monkey and a banana. Any ideas??)
My favorite thing about this card is the Spider Web embossing folder! I am so excited to use this on almost all of my Halloween projects!! On this card we used a little Whisper White Craft Ink, but there are other ways of making this web pop out and you will see those soon!
This project had a few cute ideas and tips to go along with it:
#1 - The leaves were made by punched a Scalloped Oval and then running it through the crimper. Put a little fold in the middle and you have a cute leaf!
#2 - The creator of this project, Diana Ball-Seitz, cut the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in half so that it was skinnier. I love this idea! It gave a little fray to the ribbon that is totally cute!!!
The Pumpkin Pie piece comes off and can be used as a magnetic bookmark! WOW! Just be sure to write about the gift in your card when you send it!!
Wouldn't this be a fun card for a gift of books??!!
And this color combo just pops and I like it: Poppy Parade (In Color), Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke, and Crumb Cake!
Card #4 was made using the A Cute Christmas Stamp Set (WM #120825 $25.95, CM #121133 $18.95). You will also get to use some of the Candy Cane Christmas DSP (#120809 $11.95).

The Glass Glitter was applied by using a Two-Way Glue Pen to draw a circle and then sprinkling it on top. It works GREAT!
Hope you enjoyed my layout. Head on over to Sketchy Thursdays every Thursday to get a new scrapbook layout sketch. It's fun to play along!
And here is my layout...
As I was getting ready for my crop a few weeks ago, I threw all of these patterned papers together and wasn't very excited about it. But as I started to work with them and the sketch, I started to LOVE it!!!
I love Polka Dot paper! (Side Note: Brooke is into calling every circular object a ball. Dots on i's, the Pepsi logo, polka dot patterns, the center of flowers. It's kinda cute!)
Journaling still needs to be added to this page. Do you ever feel like you need a WHOLE day to just journal on pages that you haven't yet?! I do! But I have to really be in the mood to journal, don't you?! Good think I have a blog and all of my journaling is already written down here for this page!

Kathy created this card. She used patterned paper that she took from her 6x6 Sale-a-Bration stack! The leaves she stamped came from the Falling Leaves stamp set! I love this new set...it is perfect for fall and Thanksgiving themed projects!!
If you want to play along just add a link to your project in the comments section! I would love to see what you come up with!
Most posts to come! (And don't forget to read below...I'm posting a lot in these next few days which means multiple posts per day!)
And here is her card! Isn't it super cute?! She used the new hostess stamp set: Birthday Bakery and the Priceless stamp set. The sentiment says, "If you are what you eat, eat something cute!" I love it!
Natasha used the middle card on this page as her inspiration.
She used the Falling Leaves stamp set and created a fall themed card! I just love it and it even included one of my very favorite buttons! If you would like to play along just add the link to your card below. More posts below!
So for the clothespins I was going to use for the game I thought I should decorate them. This way people couldn't just grab a clothespin from the bowl on the table when they lost theirs in the game. See, I was thinking ahead!
So I used hot glue and added brown, blue, and green ribbons to them. I LOVE them! I hope I get to host another baby shower for a baby boy soon!!
Of course I added some bling to this card too. And we have black bling for Halloween! I chose to cut apart my flourish and use all of the jewels seperately. It's so easy to cut them apart with scissors or an exacto knife.
And I just had to add some black satin ribbon to this card. What else would you expect??!
