Scrapbooking Global October 2018 Blog Hop


This month with the Scrapbooking Global Blog Hop, the theme is Celebrate.   Of course I could have done a Birthday Celebration, because God knows I have plenty of birthday pictures I could have scrapped, but I decided to Halloween Celebrate page.
When going though my old Halloween stash of stamp sets, I found the sentiment from the retired Halloween Bash stamp set that worked perfectly, Celebrate a Creepy Crawly Halloween.   I also pulled out the retired Cheer All Year, Cookie Cutter Halloween and Happy Scene.    I stamped the images on Pumpkin Pie, Lemon Lime Twist and So Saffron.    

A strip of Toil and Trouble was set on the bottom of the page.    The retired Spider Web Doilies was the finishing touch. 

If you are hopping you just came from Marga Bultena and the next stop in the hop is  Rebecca-Jo Unwin

The blog hop links are as follows if you get lost or a link does not work.   Happy hopping.

Fall Birthday

So I had some leftover paper that I put Dylusions paint on and figured why not use it up to stamp some more leaves and make a fun fall card.   The paints that I used were Pure Sunshine and Tangerine Dream.     I then was inspired by Case this Sketch.    I pulled out the Ranger Letter It Birthday stamp set and heat embossed.     The leaves come from a retired Gently Falling stamp set.   The background I used my Gorgeous Grunge.     Baker's Twine completes the card. 


Ringside Birthday

I have a first birthday party to go to.   It is a circus theme.   I knew with all my crafty tools that I would be able to come up with a card to make the birthday boy's theme.   

The stage was made with my EK Success Diamond punch.    The stars come from the Twinkle punch.   A partial circle punch is for the platform.   The lion was from the Fox punch.   I traded the pointy ears for round circles that I punched from the Owl Punch.   I used a Spellbinders scallop for the mane.    The face was stamped using the Foxy Friends stamp set.     

The background comes from the Sunburst Thinlits.    The circle sentiment comes from Takeout Treats.    The Birthday Boy comes from the retired Hooray It's Your Day.    I made the frame with my Square Thinlits. 

The colors used were Pacific Point, Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade.

Disney Wishes

So I got these great Mickey ears at a local scrapbook show.   I needed to have them.   I am the biggest Disney fan and I knew they would be a must have when scrapbooking my Disney pics.     The ears come from ColorPlay.    The sentiment comes from Card Craft Sayings which I also picked up at the scrapbook show.    The designer paper comes from Studio Calico Seven Paper.    The finishing touch was baker's twine. 



I just love these pictures from last Thanksgiving.    The best part was I didn't take them.   It was the first holiday I asked the kids to text them to me.    As you can see it was the kids slowly taking over Thanksgiving from cooking to carving to even taking a selfie of the Thanksgiving table.

It wasn't easy to get all the pictures to fit on a page but I think I did a pretty good job.    The sentiment comes from The Project Bin's Eat Pie stamp set.   I bordered the sentiment with die cuts from the Botanical Tags.    The word gather also comes from the Target dollar aisle.    The leaves were stamped and fussy cut from the Gently Falling stamp set.    Enamel Dots complete the page. 


I had a little fun scrapbooking some Fall pictures that I have.   I love the fall, the weather, the colors and all the fun things you can do during the fall season, pumpkin picking, Halloween and Thanksgiving.     Here is a picture from 2 years ago with my niece and her friend pumpkin picking. 

I colored the pumpkins and leaves by first putting some Dylusions paint down on paper.   I used Pure Sunshine and Tangerine Dream.    I then stamped my images I used the pumpkin from The Project Bin's Eat Pie and the leaves from the retired Gently Falling. 

The letters come from the Target Dollar Aisle.   The strip of designer paper comes from my retired paper stash.    The gingham is EK Success and the polka dot is Stampin' Up!

Peace Joy Love


So as you can see with one sheet of sprayed Dylusions ink, you can lots of paper to work with.   Here I used on the background and then ended up using it to stamp holly from the Dylusions Word for Trees stamp seet.   I colored in with copics and then used a gel pen for accents.    The sentiment comes from the Joann's dollar bin.    A strip of designer series paper from The Paper Studio and baker's twien complete the card.

Taco about Awesome


 I am loving this little taco from the Pink & Main Fiesta set.   It is really becoming one of my favorites.   I can not wait to use some of the other sentiments and images from the set.   I colored in the taco with my Stampin' Blends and Copics.    Strips of card stock complete the card.

Sweet Friends


So World Card Making Day would not be complete without creating a card with The Project Bin's stamps.   I pulled out the Eat Pie stamp set for this card.    I used the leaf from the Rose Garden framelits.    I paper pierced the pumpkin with retired Stampin' Up! designer paper along with the strip on the side.    Linen thread, a button and candy dots are the finishing touch on the card.

Harry Potter birthday

My niece is a big Harry Potter fan.   So I was super excited when I found this Harry Potter stamp set from Color Play called Wizard World along with coordinating paper pack.    I also found some great papers from Reminisce Wizard 101 which were used on this card.    I saw a great triangle sketch and this ended up being the perfect layout for this card.    The sentiment comes from the Avery Elle Be a Unicorn stamp set.  Enamel dots are the finishing touch on this card.

Fun fall tag


Here is another fun fall tag.   I loved this image from the Unity Kit of the Month September 2016 Moments between Moments and I never knew how I would end up using the set.   I have to say after playing I love the end result and I have a feelingyou may see this same layout on another project.    I used the Dylusions paper I prepared by spraying the ink in Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest.   I colored in the image with my Copics and Stampin' Blends.    The sentiment comes from the Unity Bountiful Owl se.    A strip of The Paper Studio, a button and twine complete the project.

Pumpkin Spice


I am having so much fun wih the Dylusions sprays and making some fabulous backgrounds.   I think what I like about it is the layers of colors and the best part is that there is no reason to be neat.     I started with my spray inks and used Fresh Lime and Lemon Zest.   I stamped the pumpkins from the Unity Kit of the Month September 2016 Moments between Moments.   I colored them in with my Stampin' Blends and Copic Makers.    I then stamped the coffee cup with the Coffee Cafe stamp set.   The leaf comes from the Rooted in Nature stamp set.     The sentiment comes from the Unity Bountiful Owl set.     The additonal pieces are designer paper from The Paper Studio, black twine and circle die cuts and punches.  

Halloween Tags


So how stinkin' cute are these tags.  Every year I get the four kids Halloween treats and since there are treats, I need tags.    I started with two for the girls and used the little witch from the Toil &  Trouble designer series paper.    The boys I ended up using the vampire from the retired Cookie Cutter Halloween colored in with my Stampin' Blends and Copics.    The background paper and the bats come from the Toil & Trouble DSP.    The sentiment comes from the Takeout Treats.   I used the Moon & Star punch for a great background.     Retired Raven Trimlace, buttons and twine complete the tags.

North Pole


So I saved the best for last.  I am in love with this card.   The background, the pop of colors, the stamp set.    My favorite colors of red and white and so many of my favorite products.

I had some paper from the last project left over.    These were deeper Dylusions spray inks of Periwinkle Blue and Polished Jade.   The ghosting was done with the Fresh Dots stencil. They made the perfect Northern Lights background.    I heat embossed snowflakes from The Project Bin's Maybe Christmas stamp set.     The image and the sentiment come from The Project Bin's newest stamp set called the North Pole.     I colored in the image with my Stampin' Blends.    The sentiment was heat embossed.   I was so excited to use the My Favorite Things Stitched Snow Drifts.   It is one of my favorites.    The finish touch was red and whit baker's twine.   I really want to make this my Christmas card, not sure if I can mass produce this for over 80 cards though.   It was a little time consuming with the heat embossing.     But wow what a card.   


So when I saw this week's color challenge from As You See It, it called for me to use my Dylusions spray inks that I just got.    They were just perfect for the occasion!!    

Dyan Reaveley actually had colors that were very similar to the Stampin' Up!  colors.    I ended up using Periwinkle Blue, Polished Jade and Fresh Lime.     For the ghosting technique on the background I used the Fresh Dots stencil.      The end result gorgeous background. 

Then when you make a gorgeous background what to do with it!   After a little thought I decided to use the beautiful Daisy Delight stamp set.    The sentiment comes from the Sending Thoughts stamp set.   I also made a birthday card using the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy set.    The strip of designer series paper from The Paper Studio was the finishing touch.
