Halloween Brag Bag

I forgot to get this post scheduled on the other day, but I wanted to share with you this super cute Brag Bag I created using the October kit from Creating Made Easy by Clear Scraps. 

 If you'd like some instructions to how I created this, a tutorial is available for download on the CME Blog.

I embossed the coveres and around the inside edges of the album pages using Globecraft Piccolo Embossing Powder... that powder is awesome!

I hid the centers of the album where the embossing was not placed with pattern paper from the kit.. and of course, lots of photos!

A lot of these photos were on my instagram feed from last year.

This paper mixed with Clear Scraps items is a huge WIN. I loved this kit!

My kids love looking through these mini albums, and I hope you liked peeking through it as well. :)

Hope your Sunday is marvy!

Two layouts

This morning I'm up on the Creating Made Easy blog showing off two layouts I created using October's kit from Clear Scraps.

In the kit came this Clear Scraps package with 2 acrylic scallop shapes. I decided to make layouts with them both.
For this layout, I covered the acrylic completely with pattern paper. Added some cut outs from the G45 papers as accents, and added my photos.

On this second layout, I wanted some of that crystal clear acrylic to show through. I removed the protective film from the front and added Viva Decor Pen in Silver all around the edges. Once that was dry, I started layering in my papers.
I used my Cameo Silhouette to create the web behind my 5x7 photo of Samantha, and also cut out the tag too for a journaling spot.

For my title, I cut out this cute saying from one of the papers.

Cute, right? hehe
Hope your weekend is fabulous, friends!

Woohoo October is here!!!!

So, it's the first of the month, and for the last 18+months, I would have posted a card from Some Odd Girl showing the new challenge.  I decided not to reapply this term and let the waters settle at home.  BUT.. I am SUPER excited to see all the new (and returning) odd girls this term at Some Odd Girl!!

Go check them out.. oh.. and if you're into ZOMBIES.. hehe, check out the shop.. Kristy has some wicked ones in there!!!

I absolutely LOVE October.. first of all, my daughter Katelyn's birthday is this month.. she'll be turning 17.. ermagerd!! hehe
and secondly.. Halloween!!!
I love Halloween decor, the colors, everything about it!

This year, I decided to make a countdown to Halloween using this super fab file I found in the Silhouette shop. Id#49209 
It's not the best picture.. but I love the overall look!!
Now to fill the boxes with some treats.. *wicked cackle*

ETA: I ran to the store, and the little boxes hold 4 miniature hershey bars and 4 peanut butter cup... i mix and matched 3 to a box and made it to the 10th.. Maybe some fun family activities can be placed in there instead of candy.. :)

OOOH.. and the new debut of the Creating Made Easy kit for October is up.. it's one of my favorite kits to date featuring gobs of goodies from Clear Scraps and paper from Graphic 45!

I'll be back on the 3rd sharing some of what I made with this fabby kit!
