Halloween Card and Jeeper Creepers Workshop Your Way

This little monster makes me smile every time!  How about you?

Our wonderful Workshop Your Way scrapbooking kits are a killer deal.  For $26.95 you get everything you need to create three beautiful 2-page layouts, plus you'll have some treat left tricking! (See what I did there? Tricks/Treats and a Halloween card?  Ba Ha Ha! I crack myself up!). This card was inspired by my friend, Melissa Robinson.

Here are a couple details of this card.  Popping things up with 3D foam tape, and adding three-dimensional accents (like the darling google eyes and stars you see on this card from the Jeepers Creepers Assortment) really jazzes up any card or project.

With Halloween coming up, you're sure to have scads of Halloween photos in the next week. With school parties, neighborhood parties, pumpkin patch visits, and trick or treating itself, this is a holiday that is only rivaled by Christmas when it comes to volume of photos taken.  The cool things is, you'll have fun things left over from that kit after you create your three two-page layouts that are perfect for creating a few cards (and who doesn't love having cards on hand for next Halloween?).

Here is what comes in the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way:
  • Jeepers Creepers Paper Packet
  • Jeepers Creepers Complements
  • 5 extra sheets of cardstock (1 Pansy, 2 Whisper and 2 White Daisy)
  • 1 Jeepers Creepers Assortment
  • 1 Jeepers Creepers Washi Pack 
  • Online access to instructions, cutting guides,  and color photos

Here are the three 2-page layouts you create with our Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way. Aren't they amazing? 

When you consider all that you can make for a $26.95 workshop, plus having leftovers to create cards, tags, candy bar wrappers, or whatever you choose, it's a pretty SCREAMING deal!  Get yours today here. Anyone that orders this kit from my website before October 31 will receive a handstamped Halloween card from me in the mail.  How's that for a treat?

Christmas Magic 3" x 5" Card

Sometimes it's fun to make a card that's not the typical size.  This one is a 3" x 5" card and I just love how it turned out. It's a top fold card, and I rounded the bottom edges.  I also did quite a bit of white embossing on this card. I just love the look of white embossing on colored papers.  In this case I used Black and Glacier cardstocks.

To create a 3" x 5" top fold card, you'll want a 3" x 10" piece of cardstock, folded in half.  You can get 2 of these cards out of one 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock, and 4 of them out of a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock.

The stamp set I've chosen to use on this card is the October Stamp of the Month - Yuletide Joy. This stamp set is yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with every $50 you order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.  I've also included a list of all of the products I used on this card, as well as photos and links for your convenience, at the very end of this post.

Scrapbooking is More Than a Hobby and a Christmas Layout

So many people think that scrapbooking is just a fun hobby, and it is that, but to me it's SO MUCH MORE! It is a way to document not only photos, but thoughts and memories and feelings.  These pages that I create are hopefully leaving a legacy of not only memories, but of who I am.

This page is an example of a page that is more than just a photo. It's a page that shares a little bit of my heart.  I was grateful for the October Stamp of the Month, which added the perfect accents and title to my page.  You can also see a list of all of the products I have used on this layout, as well as photos and links to them for your convenience, at the very end of this post.

One technique I used on this layout was cutting my stamps.  There is a sentiment stamp in this set that says, "Let the magic of Christmas warm your heart."  You can see the set below with this sentiment stamp circled.  I wanted to replace the Christmas word on the stamp with our oh-so-cute "Christmas" thin cut for my title. So, I just took my scissors and carefully cut "Christmas" out (so that sentiment stamp was now in three pieces) and then used the remaining words to create my title with the "Christmas" thin cut (cut from White Daisy Cardstock) inserted.  Easy, peasy and it doesn't ruin your stamps. I can still put the whole sentiment on a block together, just like it was meant to be, any time I want to, or continue to use it in pieces. Cutting your stamps is a GREAT way to make them more versatile!

Here is a little collage of some of the details of this layout:

This stamp set is only available in October, and can be yours for only $5 ($12.95 savings) with each $50 you order (before shipping and tax). Order $100, get 2...and so on.  When ordering on my website, you'll be prompted to add your set(s) before checking out.
