The October kit is such a great kit that my layouts go together in no time at all!! As I use up some of the items, I am disappointed - like the black cat mini stickers and the Shabby Brick Bits, but super happy to see them on my layouts!
My first layout is from last Halloween, one of our friends brought a giant pumpkin to the friends house where we gathered for Halloween - so the guys decided to carve it!
My second layout is of my son during Halloween last year, I always like to take photos of him at the end of the night with all of his treats! He always gets so much candy!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today - I hope you are having as much fun with the October kit as I have had!!
Happy Tuesday, Chickies!
Today I wanted to share a fun technique for making patchwork pumpkins. When I originally started working on these for my layout, I was just going to make the popular patchwork circles that are popping up all over the place. However, once I had the circles all finished, I didn't like the look on the layout, and since the layout was a Halloween one, I decided to try to turn the circles into pumpkins. What I ended up with were some darling patchwork embellies that added just the perfect touch to my layout.
To begin, you will need two circles, each the same size.
I loved the pumpkin paper, so decided to use that for my background. This means that I used the orange chevron paper as one layer of patchwork and used the rest as a template.
To begin, I drew my lines on the circle, marking off the pieces that I wanted. Since this is a patchwork design, uneven is the name of the game. So, no measuring needed.
Cut apart the circle. One of the pieces is the first layer. Next, use a leftover piece from the circle to use as a template for a different piece of paper. Did I mention, this is an AWESOME way use up…Continue
Happy Sunday, Everyone!
I am so excited to share two more layouts that I've created using the frightfully fun October kit! Even though this kit has a Halloween theme, you can use it for so much more. To show that, I created two layouts that had nothing to do with Halloween.
For my first layout, I used this picture of Miss Shadow shortly after she came to live with us. She is such a darling girl, and came into our lives at just the perfect time for Kaleb and she's been is kitty ever since.
And a couple of close ups:
My second layout is for Little Man. I took a bunch of action shots one day after school, and this one is a favorite. He brings such joy to out family and I'm so blessed that he is part of our lives. And, after Monday's scare, I needed some scrappy therapy!

I love it when Halloween comes. It signals a change in the seasons for me and means that some bigger holidays are coming around the corner. This month's Kit is just perfect for all of your ghoulish concoctions! This is the first year I allowed Nick to get a "scary" costume. It actually cracks me up. You should see him from behind. I think we have to keep this outfit. Insert evil laugh here!
I love love love the overlays in this kit so much! I have used them twice on this layout:
I captured a great pose from my girly pumpkin the day went out to get our family pumpkins. I couldn't resist showing her off. She sure is getting to be quite a beautiful young lady. The Blue Fern Studios Shabby Brick Bits are so easy to use, cut, color, ink and add easy dimension.
I whipped up a quick card using the kit contents too. I needed a thank you for one of the janitors at school who thought of the functional skills class when she made sugar cookies. She delivered pumpkin shaped sugar cookies and orange icing to us!
And here is a close up of the flower. I inked the edges a bit with just a plain black ink pad:
We hope you were able to snag your Halloween kit from the boooootique (bwa ha ha…Continue
