A Haunted Halloween!

I love Halloween.... Every year Disneyland decorates the Haunted Mansion with all kinds of things from the movie Nightmare Before Christmas. It is so awesome!! This is a "stadium album" from Kits 2 Remember. The paper is some new Halloween paper from Creative Imaginations. It is absolutely beautiful! I used the Stamped cricut cartridge for "SPOOKY". I used stamps from Stampin Up! and inkadinkado. I hope you like the album!! I sure had fun making it. You can visit the Krew bog for some additional pictures.

Kits2Remember project

This is my next project for Kits 2 Remember. Jessica, the owner, puts a kit together, gives it to us and says CREATE! So, this is what I created! I had a lot of fun with this kit. It had really nice paper in it... Well, I have to run... Until next time!

Some new projects...

It has been a busy week! But I wanted to post a little something... so here are a couple of projects that I have been working on...

This is a project I made for Kits2Remember. They sell "Krew Kits" which contains everything you'd need to make a project. This one is Krew Kit #6. It is fun to see how people, with the very same kit, can create such different things! Mine, of course, has the boys in it. They were all skateboarding and Malcolm got some great pictures!

It is particularly fun to work with acrylic. What you do on one side can totally effect what you do on the other side! So you find yourself thinking about layout, what is on the back, papers, etc. If you haven't tried acrylic yet, you should!! But let me warn you... it is addicting!

Another project I was working on was a "baby girl" pocket album for Jeanne. I used the Simply Scrappin Kit "Rock a Bye Girl" from Stampin Up. These kits are nice because they come with the card stock, 4 different patterned papers and card stock stickers. Since it is a kit, all the colors match! I had made a baby boy album a couple of weeks ago, so wanted to make the baby girl one to match! This has 6 pockets and will hold 12 pictures. It is designed so that you can take a picture of your baby every month, place them on the appropriate inserts, and show what a difference a year makes!

So, that is what I have been up to lately... How about you?

Countdown to Christmas!

I know... I know... it is a little scary, isn't it? I can't believe that Christmas is not all that far away!! And yes, it really is only 79 days until Christmas!

This is a project that I made this weekend. I used two 5x7 metal panels that I got from Kits2Remember. The fun thing about working with metal panels is, of course, you can use magnets!! I also found this really pretty paper from SEI (Holly Lane). I tend to go for cute, snowflakes, etc. But something about this paper... Then I found these very cool crystals by Say It In Crystals that matched the paper perfectly! And of course, that is how it all begins! I used chip board letters and covered them in paper from the same SEI line. The letters were cut on the Cricut using the Stone Script font cartridge. I hope you like it!
