It's the Spooktacular! Blog Hop!

Welcome Trick or Treaters! Only treats here! If you came from: Darlys, then you'll in the right place!

I love the Spooktacular Special CTMH surprised us with! These little characters are so cute all dressed up to go trick or treating. I'm using the is card, which uses several of the gorgeous papers in the kit, for a Halloween Birthday! On the inside it will say You're 2! I used our new Spectrum Tri Blend markers to color my pirate bunny! He's too cute to scare anyone!
Before we knew about the special, I had pulled out some leftover paper and stamps from last Halloween for my scrapbook group to do! I used the new stamps, D1875, and D1893 with some leftover bulk paper.  The thin cuts make it easy to put together a wonderful layout and it gave my group a chance to use the new markers! You can purchase the stamps set through October in our current catalog! I also used the Autumn Blessings set,B1685, with October's Stamp of the Month as some were not into Halloween as much and they used more of the pumpkins for theirs. I left room for journaling as well. My Spooktacular set came the day of the scrapbook night so I quickly cut some of the characters out, and they added those to their layouts as I did. I also used the animals for a make and take at a crop recently. They were well received. At my regular stamping nights we will again be using this set to make tags and they will be used to tie up a bag of candy for my stampers. They're lucky I share my chocolate!!


I hope  you enjoyed stopping by and it looks like I'm the end of the haunt! If you missed any of the great blogs and projects, head here for a complete list Melissa's

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

This is the stamp set we're featuring! It's $18.95, but with a $50.00 order, you can purchase it for only $5.00 during the Month of October! What a deal!










Welcome to my blog! If you've arrived from Ronda's adorable blog and projects, you're in the right place! I've used several of our products in my layout today! I'm a clean, quick, get 'er done kind of scrapbooker. A little bling, some fun products and a layout comes together really quick and looks great! I hope you enjoy!

I used our French Vanilla Cardstock X6046 for the base, along with our Nectarine X 6043 for my mats. I used our Hawthorn Paper for the blue leaf strip with the Zip Strip, X7249 B. The Orange stripe is from our Spooktacular special!  I used the Stamp of the Month for our main element on the left. I just love how Summer turns into Fall, and right now our Fall is in the 90's. A little unusual. The Brown leaves are Toffee X5950, The Julep Glitter leaves are Z3506 and the Bling is Julep Glitter Gems Z3507. Julep is our color of the year. The leaves are our Layered Leaves Z3523. I love that you can use the skeleton top layer, or using the solid, can fill in with a background. I hope you'll check those out. They will retire at the end of October as well. The pumpkins are from our Z3532, Autumn Blessings stamps and thin cuts. The So Thankful is from our September Special! It's October, I hope you didn't miss that special!


In my area, we have a huge Covered Bridge Festival, celebrating the Covered Bridges in our area, as well as many pumpkin patch and corn maze places to spend the last warm days outside. I made my mats to fit 1 5x7 and 2 4x6 photos. When I am taking photos, I love to get up close and personal with the subjects. The people are who I focus on. My kids and grandkids will love seeing how they've grown over the years, and laughing at the fashions of our day. I take shots around the facility we are visiting, especially the covered bridges, but I love having photos of my family on pages where they are the focus.
Thank you for stopping by! Now it's on to Ramona's blog to see her fun project!
