Moonlight - Halloween Wall Hanging

I realized that I didn't share this Halloween Wall Hanging on here, so here it is just about a month late!  I was inspired by fellow Consultant Melinda Everitt, you can see all of her lovely artwork here - If You Bling It.  I was going to put pictures from this year's trick or treating, then I decided to put last years pic of "Arr Pirate Family" on the first panel and continue on with this year, my Avenger Hero boys - Thor & Captain America.  I will add next years on the 3rd panel and the following on the last panel so it will be a collection of 4 years of Halloween to display for years to come.  Thank you so much Melinda for this inspiration!  I love it!  And it was so easy to create, no stamping, just paper & coordinating Complements Dimensional Elements, some ribbon & a little baker's twine.

Until my next post, happy crafting!

Scholastic - Favorite Books layout

This is the layout my ladies created last week at our monthly scrap class.  This layout was inspired by a fellow Consultant, Di Denson, check out all of her lovely artwork at Di's Stamping Room.  I made the same layout for both of my boys, to show their favorite books right now.  Caleb, my youngest son, is in first grade and really getting into reading, which I love to see.  My oldest son has always been an avid reader.  Another thing that makes me so proud.  I did not enjoy reading as a child.  I love to read now & sometimes stay awake too late reading with that thought of "just one more chapter".  It makes me really happy to see both of my boys enjoying reading.

Supplies used - Scholastic Workshop on the Go Kit, School Rocks & Trinity Alphabet stamp sets, Memo Assortment, Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, Colonial White Grosgrain ribbon, Outdoor Denim, Ruby & Colonial White cardstock.

Until next post, happy crafting!

Carving punkins layout

Yep, you read that right, I wrote "punkins" instead of pumpkins.  I do know how to spell & pronounce it correctly, but when your youngest son says it that way, you sort of pick up on it and that's what it becomes! I'm sure many of you with children can relate to that.  It's the cute things they do and say that we have to enjoy now while they are still young.  Anyway, here is a layout I made this weekend using Moonlight papers.  I have been on a creative roll with this paper pack.  I also did an adorable wall hanging too for Halloween.  I'll have to get a picture taken of it.  I still need to add some more embellishing to this page, but thought I would share it before I call it a night.  With the use of our wonderful flip flaps I have multiple pictures on this layout!  On the left page, the top photo has a flip flap added and on the right page top vertical photo has a flip flap, so this layout sketch from Imagine - Everything in Its Place on page 54 called 10 photos and with my adjustment to the sketch, I actually have 14 pictures on this layout.

Supplies used - Moonlight paper pack, Glamour Alphabet stamp set & Frightenin' Fun (retired) stamp set, Autumn Terracotta, Smokey Plum & Colonial White cardstock.

Until my next post, which will not be tonight, happy crafting!

Fall Blessings layout

If you are on Facebook then you are probably seeing all of the posts about 30 Days of Things I am Thankful For, or something along those lines.  I've seen people doing these posts for the past couple of years but it would be 3 or 4 days into the month, so I didn't do it.  This year I remembered and started my Thankful posts.  This is a layout I made Friday of my two most precious blessings.  It is made using a retired paper pack called Dreamin'.  This was a photo shoot day at a huge park in Billings.  It has tons of huge trees with usually lots of leaves to be found, but by the time we went over there, we had had lots of wind, so there weren't as many leaves.  But I was really pleased with the photos I did get of my boys.  Love them so much!

Supplies used - Dreamin' WOTG Kit, Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for title, Harvest Happiness stamp set, Designer Brads - Shimmer, Goldrush & Honey 2nd Generation stamping for background, Chocolate & Colonial White cardstock.

Until my next post, happy craftings & hug your blessings!

Until next post, happy crafting!
