Dia de los Muertos Layout

Hello again! How is everyone doing? Have you SEEN Moxxie's new line Day of the Dead? You haven't!? Uh.... what are you waiting for go! I'll even wait for you to go check it out, here's a link to get you there faster- Click HERE. I'll wait for you, just hurry!......................
Now, let me ask you again, have you SEEN Moxxie's new line!? It's gorgeous, right! The minute I saw this line I knew I had the PERFECT picture of my sister for a fun layout! 
Are you ready to see it?
What do you think!? Cool, huh! I started out with a base that I cut down by 1/4" on top and on the side, then adhered it to some black cardstock. Next, I sprayed and sprinkled some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine all over it and then let it dry. Then the fun of layering all those gorgeous papers came next. I did a bit of punching and some distressing on them. I also added a doily and some flowers.
For the title I used some of Moxxie's Alpha's. You can really see the ink splatters up close here. LOVE the glittery shine to them. 
As for this gorgeous sugar skull I did a bit of fussy cutting, propped it up with some 3D foam dots for dimension and lined it with a few Imaginisce jewels.
Love to hear what you think of the new line, let me know in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Halloween Decorations

I have another fun Halloween decoration to share with you today. This one is so fun and easy to do with your little ones too! Start out by picking some Halloween (this would work for any holiday) washi tape. I had some really fun ones.
Next I removed the light switch covers off the wall. One of my daughters was so excited she got right to it! She started covering the cover with washi tape.
Here she is just about done with the last one.
Look how pretty they look! Quick and fun project that adds just little extra fun to your walls.
Now to get them all put back on the wall.
Is that something you think you would do? Let me know in the comments, I would love to know.

Halloween Wreath

Good morning! With Halloween around the corner I figured I needed a cute wreath to go on my door. Nothing says Halloween to me like orange and black and when I found some chevron burlap I knew I had to incorporate it somehow. Here's what I came up with.
Adorable! Right!? I found the letters at Michael's, I painted them black and then added a bit of glue to adhere some glitter. A little bit of sparkle adds a bit of dazzle. ;) I hot glued the letters together and then tied them onto the wreath with some twine. 
Have you got all your Halloween decorations up yet? How soon and up to how late in the month do you continue to decorate? 
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Celebracion Card

Good morning! I have a gorgeous card to share with you today. I used Moxxie's new line Day of the Dead. If you haven't seen it, you really should go check it out. I love how rich and vibrant the colors are and the art amazing. I love the sugar skulls!
For my base I used a sheet of black cardstock, making my card a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I then layered on those gorgeous yummy papers. My favorite part about these papers is how they look so much like strips of washi tape! I distressed around the edges and used my favorite Martha Stewart border punch. I fussy cut the little doily looking oval out of the cut out sheet and added dimension by "popping" it up with 3D foam dots. 
This was a very quick and easy card to put together. 
What is your favorite part of the card? Let me know in the comments! 
Thanks for stopping by! :)

XC (Cross Country) layout

I'd like to share another layout I created using pictures from the gal I mentioned in my Monday post HERE. I used Moxxie's Cross Country line again. 
I had fun layering different pieces of designer paper from this line behind my picture. But before I did I did some distressing around the edges of each one. Here's some close up's of the embellishments. 
 
Are you runner? Have a runner in your life? This is an awesome line to scrapbook those pictures!

Running Journal

Good morning! Are you a runner? If so I have a cute little way to track your miles, notes, paths, anything your heart desires. ;) Moxxie's new line Cross Country line was great for such a project.
I started out with a small composition notebook which I covered using a sheet from Cross Country line. Then used Moxxie's coordinating sticker sheet and Alpha's to decorate the front. For a finishing touch a I wrapped some twine around the spine. Here's some close up's.

Cross Country No Excuses Layout

Good morning! Today I have layout to share with you, using Moxxie's new Cross Country line. I used a pictures of a friends daughter who runs cross country. I've known this beautiful girl since she was 2 years old. I had so much creating the layout of her.
I love to cut my designer paper down by a 1/4" on a side and along the top so I can matte it onto some cardstock. I just love the finished look and extra stability it provides. I distressed along all the edges just using the edge of my scissors. Matted the pictures and had so much fun with stickers that coordinate with this line. Here's a few close up's. 
For the title I cut apart one of the cutout's, distressed it and popped it up with some foam dots and folded over a corner. 
 I fussy cut the runner from one of the sheets in this line.
Love the word stickers! They are so fun and easy to use, I just did some distressing around the edges before adhering them to the page.

If you have a runner in the family this is definitely a must have line. What do you think about it? 
Let me know in the comments! I would love to hear from you.

My Sweet Girls Layout

Hello! Love how this layout came together! I don't play much with circles but I've been trying to incorporate them more, you know trying something out of my comfort zone. 
I love being able to pull out kit and have everything just coordinate so nicely! I used an old Scraptastic Club kit and started cutting out random sized circles. Then distressed the edges. Before adhering down my yellow diagonal lined sheet I cut a 1/4" off the top and side and matted it on a sheet of dark grey cardstock. Next spritzing it down with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine mists. When my cute little splatters dried I began arranging my circles. Love the results!
Adding little bits of embellishments was fun! Here's a few close up's of them.
  
Here I fussy cut out of the circles off of a sheet and popped up the cute little heart in the middle with some foam dots. Then I outlined my page some faux stitching around the edge. 
This was a great way to use up some of the my scraps I had left in my kit. Loved how it all came together. Thanks for stopping by! :)
