There are no birthdays today
It's no secret that I love Halloween and all things spooky so it's no wonder that I just love the October kit!!
Today I have two layouts to share with you - the first one is a photo I took as we arrived at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, CO in Oct. 2012. During fall break we stayed at the Stanley Hotel - in the haunted room 217 (from The Shining), we did the history tour and the nighttime ghost tour along with touring the grounds on our own both during the day and at night. I knew I had to use some of our trip photos since this kit has both paper and stickers that reference the Stanley Hotel.
For my second layout I really wanted to use the big Halloween sticker that comes in the October kit, so I picked some simple photos of my son posing in his morphsuit on Halloween 2011. Since my son and two of his pals dressed up in morphsuit, we did a whole photo shoot at our town center!! I love the impact of the large sticker!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and be sure to stop by the store to pick up your October Kit - you don't want to miss out on this…Continue
Have you ever made Twinchies or Inchies?
These are terrific little bits of cards that measure a perfect square 1 inch by 1 inch ("inchies") or a perfect square 2 inch by 2 inch ("twinchies").
They contain small art, collages, or hand drawn pictures. These are great for using up little scraps left over in your stash. I keep many of them on hand to throw onto hand made cards, tags, or to leave on teacher desks at school, in a lunch box etc. There are many groups out there that swap cards too with their members which is fun. It is a great way to see new techniques and other styles!
Here are some fun coffee cards I made using the October BOAF kit and an editable printable I found on Pinterest:
Thanks for looking! Perhaps you will give these nuggets a try!…Continue
In 2012 I found a cute little pumpkin patch near out house. I dressed the kids up in fun Halloween shirts (Morgan had a skeleton shirt, Brandon a Spider shirt, and Catherine had this cute onsie with a black tutu with orange and black leggings - I loved that outfit!!). The pumpkin patch had a place set up to take pictures, and I did get a cute one of all the kids smiling and looking sweet at the camera, but my favorite was the one where Morgan is rolling his eyes (either at having to take the picture or at his brother) and Brandon is just goofing around acting silly as all 2 year-olds do.
I used the super fun October Birds of a Feather kit for this layout, jam packed with all kinds of fun Halloween goodies for your projects.
I layered in lots of the overlay titles in with the layers, and also added back in the "bricks" to the brick wall colored in green and orange and to some I added in bits of journaling liek their names, ages, date, place, etc which left the journaling strips open to taking about the fun picture.

And then here is the page that I made with the kit also ... I painted the brick wall white and then added the crackle to the chipboard ...so cool and then I cut out fence, arrows and black flowers to add to this page and then cut some of the "bling" trip to put in the middle of the flowers.
Here is a close-up:
Next I decided to do a cat page with those cute little cats ...we just got a black cat...so I painted the background with some thinned out white paint and cut some words out and stars and added some of the crackle to the stars to make them stand out more ....
Here is a close-up:Continue
