Moonlight WOTG Additional Layout

I am having so much fun creating using the Moonlight Workshop on the Go Kit!  Here is the Additional Layout featured in the kit.  I made it using pictures of my youngest sons trip to the pumpkin patch with his preschool class.  I didn't stamp the fence with the owl on the right hand page like the instructions showed because I just didn't think it went with my pictures that well.  But I did add the Color Ready Arbor Wooden Shapes pumpkin below the journaling and stamped directly on the pumpkin with the Abundance stamp set, then inked the edges of the pumpkin with Goldrush ink and I think it turned out really cute!  

And did you happen to notice, on my title, I used the new "Swipe Hype" technique?  This is the technique Monica & Kristine showed in the My Craft Channel video back on Sept 11th.  

I'm working on some other pages to complete the pumpkin patch visit and will be posting those soon.  So until that post, happy crafting!

Supplies used - Moonlight Workshop on the Go kit, Haunted Assortment, Color Ready Arbor Wooden Shapes, Slate, Goldrush & Colonial White cardstock & Black Ink.

The Stamp Behind the Mask

Why do I think of a superhero with that title?  Hmm, I wonder...  The Avengers is all the rage right now and what my boys will be for Halloween.  And when you watch this new technique video by Close to my Heart's Monica & Kristine, you will see something along that line of thinking also.  “The Stamp behind the Mask” features masking portions of your stamps so that you only ink and stamp what you want to see.  I hope you enjoy the video.  Let me know if you have any questions!

Moonlight My Creations Blocks

How many days until Halloween??  Our family knows with these adorable Halloween Countdown blocks that I just finished creating using the Moonlight Workshop on the Go kit & My Creations Blocks!  This is the Bonus Project for the kit.  The instructions stated to ink the blocks with black ink, but I decided to do mine with Smokey Plum instead and I like how they turned out.  I thought I had the Dimensional Elements Numbers on hand, but since I didn't, I just cut out the numbers with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge in Goldrush cardstock and it's all good.  Oh and if you are wondering, it is 10 days until Halloween :o)

Until next post, happy crafting!

My Creations Halloween Star

You probably saw my post back on the 1st about Seeing Stars on Jeanette Lynton's blog.  I just loved the Halloween designed star and had to make one too!  Here is my star.  I didn't have the Black Flourish Sparkes, so I just made it without them.  I think it is so pretty & a lovely addition to the seasons decorations in our home!

Until next post, happy crafting!

Trick or Treating layout

It's almost Halloween, what fun!  And what better way to get into the Halloween spirit, besides all the fun decorations I've put up?  To work on last year's Halloween layouts!  Here is the layout I completed a couple of days ago of my boys going trick or treating in the neighborhood.

Supplies used - Moonlight Workshop on the Go kit, Perfect Fit - Halloween & Creepy Creatures stamp sets, Haunted Assortment, Licorice Opaques, Harvest Baker's Twine, and Goldrush & Black cardstock.  This layout is based on the Cherish sketch Photo Shapes on page 46.

Until next post, happy crafting!

My Team Awards

I almost forgot to post these.  My upline Mandy brought them by to me yesterday.  When she signed up to be a Consultant I believe almost 10 years ago, she lived in Michigan.  So her upline and the majority of our team - Northern Stars are in the Michigan area.  I've never been to Michigan, but would love to go at some point to attend one of the team meetings.  I get to hear all about them on our team board and they always sounds like so much fun!  Everyone that I've met at Convention's of the team are all such wonderful ladies!  Anyway, Mandy brought these by to me yesterday and it is exciting to see my name so I have to share with you!  Thank you Dana for getting these mailed to me!
