SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Trick or Treat

Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Trick or Treat. I love this time of year, especially for Halloween. I really love making all the cute and scary cards and projects.
     For this challenge I created a cute and fun way to give out some special treats to some very special trick-er treat-ers! The box itself is cut from one of my favorite Cricut cartridges, Chic-n-Scary, at 4-3/4". From bottom to top the box measures 4-1/2"h by 2-3/4"w by 2-1/8"d. I then took a white gel pen and did a dash line all the way around the box. I recommend doing this before putting the box together. I took a piece of paper cut to 2-1/2" by 10". I glued it around the box, cutting off the excess, then I glued the box together. The pumpkin on the front is cut at 2-3/4" from Cricut cartridge Mini Monsters. The purple ruffle is a piece of paper cut to 1-1/4" by 8". I scored the paper every 1/4" then folded the paper back and forth. After that I glued the ends together and let it dry. Then I glued the ruffle to a 2" purple circle. When it is completely dried I glued the pumpkin to the ruffle and the whole thing to the box. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart.: Chic-n-Scary, Mini Monsters
  • Paper: Doodlebug (2005)
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • White Gel Pen: Signo Broad White
  • Adhesive: Scotch ATG, Scotch Quick Dry

     I really appreciate you coming to my blog and checking out my really cute Halloween project. Don't forget to join us over at the SOUS Die Cut challenge Trick or Treat with your amazing project. Thanks again for looking at my treat box and have a great weekend! :)

SOUS Project Life Challenge - Use Black, Orange, and White Primarily

     Here is my spread for the Stuck On U Sketches Project Life Challenge: Use primarily white, orange, and black. I have to admit that I totally loved doing this challenge. This time of year is my favorite. I love Fall. I love the changing of the temperatures, the color changing of all the trees around me, and most importantly, my favorite holiday, I love...HALLOWEEN!! I wanted to use a page protector on this one that I hardly ever use and that is Design E. I know a lot of people have a hard time with this pocket page because Project Life doesn't come with 6x6 cards. I like to think I am doing 4 little traditional layouts. I take each pocket and use my 4x6 and 3x4 cards and use them in different ways. I angle them to take up more space and give an interesting look. On this spread I used some unexpected items. In the bottom right corner I used a painted wood embellishment. Also the little leaves were once buttons, I just clipped off the shaft. 
     I really hope you enjoyed my Project Life spread and also hope that you will come join us at SOUS for this challenge. Thanks again! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Anything Autumn

     Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Anything Autumn. I really love how this card came out. It is very simple but has sort of an elegance to it. I love the changing of the leaves this time of year. This is my favorite season. I cut the leaf out at 4" from the Cricut cartridge Stretch Your Imagination. It is an older cartridge but still a goodie. Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Stretch Your Imagination
  • Paper: Unknown (Was in my scraps)
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Brads: Making Memories
  • Stickles: Gold
  • Adhesive: Scotch
Thank you so much for looking at my blog today. I really hope you are inspired by this challenge to make your own project to submit to our site Stuck On U Sketches. Have a great weekend! :)

Reorganizing My Scraproom

Here are several pics of my very messy and disorganized scraproom. I have started the challenge from Tiffany Spaulding's "Fall 2014 Get Organized Challenge." It is a 8-week challenge to help you get all of your supplies in order so that you will be able to go to your scrap area and scrapbook. Each week on Tuesday at 10am Tiffany does a live video on Livestream. Right now we are in week 4 - A Plethora of Pictures.
     My room has been torn apart in all different directions. Last week I ordered and received a Scraprack which Tiffany makes. It holds whatever scrappy supplies you put into it and makes it all available at your finger tips. My room is messier now then when I first started because I have been breaking down my old storage to put into my new Scraprack. I am hoping that by the time this challenge is done my room will be transformed into a beautiful scraproom. Here is my inspiration:

     Well, I need to get back to work so I can get back to scrapping. Thanks so much for looking at my blog! :)
