Pumpkin Layout
Since I no longer have babies, the new Babycakes paper pack posed a challenge for me.  I liked some of the papers so had to think outside the box.  I came up with this layout for my daughter of her carving her pumpkin.  The layout is from Magic - Enchanted.  I did use some recently retired items.

September Constant Campaign

You are My Happy

Here are a couple of cards I made using the September Constant Campaign Stamp Set, You are My Happy.  For the first card I used some of my Chantilly leftovers, Chantilly Card Workshop stamp, grey bakers twine and blue sparkles.  For the second card I used Sarita leftovers and pink sparkles.  The patterns are from Make it from Your Heart, Vol 2.
I also made this single page layout using Sarita and Babycakes papers, Sarita Stickease, Slate polka-dot Washi tape and blue sparkles.

October Workshop


~  Friday, October 11  ~  7 pm  ~
In an earlier post I mentioned that I was saving some of the papers from the Sarita paper pack to use for a Halloween layout.  I used the goldrush cardstock (1 in the pack, 2 in the kit: I added second from my stash).  I used the Magic layout on page 50 - Spellbound, and the cricut for the embellishments.  My daughter loves it.

September Workshop

~  Saturday 21  ~  7pm  ~
This month we will make some of the layouts I made using the Sarita Paper pack.  Pick the one/s you would like to make and bring the necessary supplies.  See you then.
I made three layouts from this paper packet and still have some left overs that I plan on using for a Halloween layout.  It didn't want the stamp set, but the extra cardstock in the kit (1 goldrush and 2 gypsy) may be handy for some.  I did have to add extra cardstock, mostly colonial white as bases.
Layout 1.  This layout requires no stamping, and was inspired by extra artwork found on Jeanette Lyntons blog ( for the new idea book.  I added colonial white and gypsy cardstock.
Products I used are
X7171B      Sarita Paper pack      $9.95
X7171C      Sarita Stickease      $4.95
Z1873      Sarita Assortment      $5.95
Z1686      Cricut Art Philosophy      $99.00
9035      Make It from Your Heart Vol. 1 (#2)      $7.95

Layout 2.  This layout was inspired by the one on page 98 of the current Autumn/Winter Idea Book.  I used the lagoon cardstock as the base and had to add colonial white and gypsy cardstock.  Since the pictures of my daughter have pink in them I added some pink lace B&T from the Lucy Kit instead of the goldrush in the packet.
Products I used are:
X7171B      Sarita Paper pack      $9.95
D1555      All the Details stamp      $17.95
D1556      School Years stamp      $17.95
Z1790      Cricut Artiste      $99.00
Z1686      Cricut Art Philosophy      $99.00
9042      Make It from Your Heart Vol. 2 (#7)      $7.95
Z2195      Lagoon ink      $5.25
Z2140      Outdoor Denim ink      $5.25
Z2193      Cotton Candy ink      $5.25
Z1385      Design Ribbon, Blue collection      (retired)

Layout 3.  This layout was inspired by the one on page 99 of the current Idea Book.  I added colonial white for the base, a little of the pink lace B&T from other layout and some gyspy, sky and ponderosa pine cardstock, again to work with the pictures.  The layout is from MIFYH Vol.2 (#15).  And I just noticed the picture strip on the right page fell off...  opps.
Additional products used are:

Z2194      Sky ink      $5.25
Z2105      Black ink      $5.25
