Thank you for stopping by to see the CUTEST Halloween Special from CTMH. It's all about the BOO CREW for this Special and I am joining five other Makers to bring you a few ideas on how to use this collection.

If you've come from Michelle's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping around until you get back to where you started. Don't worry, it won't take long! If you're starting here, WELCOME! If you get lost along the way, you can always head on over to Melinda's Blog for a complete list!

I decided to make some sucker covers for some Halloween treats...

Sucker covers are SUPER EASY  to make! This one measures 3x3 finished and that is based on the size of my can make it whatever size is appropriate for yours. Isn't that stamped ghost with the that little bowtie the CUTEST (talk about TOO CUTE TO SPOOK)...
This one uses the pumpkin and bat images, all cut using the coordinating Thin Cut that comes with the Boo Crew Stamp Set + Thin Cuts...the "CANDY DAY" is cut from one of the patterned papers in the Boo Crew Paper Packet...

Scrapbooking made Easy with the Wander Workshop Kit | Process Video

The Wander Collection is about to retire so I thought I'd show you what I did with the Scrapbooking Workshop Kit! The best part is that I only made TWO of the Three pre-designed layouts...I still have another layout to make AND some extra paper, cardstock, stickers and embellishments to make MORE!
This first layout has some added stenciling using our Stencil Pack 3 (SOLD OUT but we will have some AWESOME alternatives on September 1st), Sundance Ink and my Mini-Blending Tool...

This is Layout #3 in the Kit (because I haven't made LO #2 yet) and I am IN LOVE with this layout...the globe with all the stickers and dimensional elements...not to mention the photo I took from my Google Maps marking where we were at fits PERFECTLY on this layout...

Thanks for stopping by!

***DON'T FORGET to grab your kit before it retires on August 31st (and, you do NOT want to wait until the last minute on this one).

Anything Goes Technique Blog Hop...

Happy mid-August, guys! I hope your August is off to a great start and you're ready to end the month with dreams of Autumn feels soon (not if you're in Texas though...we won't have "Autumn feels" for probably another couple of months, if that).

I am joining several other CTMH Makers to bring you our monthly Technique Blog Hop where we show you projects featuring different techniques. This month's theme is ANYTHING GOES so I'm super excited that you'll be seeing a wide range of techniques you can plug into your papercrafting.

If you're coming from Tamara's Blog, you're on the right track...keep hopping until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! If you get lost along the way, there is a link to a full list of participants at the end of this post.

I used the sponging/stenciling technique as well as watercolor paint splatter technique (I'm pretty sure those aren't proper names but you get what I mean)...

This is a gatefold card with a shaker element in the center of the sun stencil from the Stencil Pack 3
The patterned paper and all the WANDERful accents are from the Wander Collection...even the sentemt on the inside (Wander Cardmaking Kit)... 

Thanks for stopping by! Head on over to Krista's Blog to see what technique she has to share! Please feel free to leave some love along the way to let us know that you are enjoying ALL the techniques you're seeing!

Tutti Fruitti SOTM Blog Hop...

Welcome to AUGUST (that came quick, didn't it!?!?!)!!! I'm excited for several reasons but the first is because it's time for a NEW SOTM from Close to my Heart and this one is ADORABLE!!!

As always, I'm joining some other CTMH Makers in bringing you a Blog Hop featuring Tutti Fruitti (don't you just LOVE the name). If you're coming from Haley's Blog, you're on the right track...keep on hopping around until you get back to where you started. If you're starting here, WELCOME! 

I immediately knew that ONE of the purposes for this stamp set would be to decorate the August monthly page in my planner! We have several things going on in August which play along really well with the Tutti Fruitti Stamp of the Month!

Here's a look...can you see all the places I used the SOTM?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget that this EXCLUSIVE stamp set is only available during the month of August and can be yours FREE if you're one of my VIPs or for as little as $5 with a qualifying purchase. You can check out all the details {{{HERE}}}
