Hey Guys! 

Amy here from Paisley's Playhouse!

Trick or Treat....Smell my feet...give me something good to eat...


Kids they are really just there for the candy and so this card says...


I have been eyeballing this shape on the Art Philosophy cartridge and when I saw this moon with the bats I started tossing around some ideas in my head.


I love the way it turned out. Just a fun playful card with a surprise inside!


What do you think? A little scene on the inside and the message goes on the left hand side instead of the right.

Something fun, something different, something new. Enjoy...and if you go trick or treating with the young ones enjoy their candy too!

Supplies*:
Cardstock - Colonial White (1388), Slate (X5930), Sunset (X5758)
Pattern Paper - Scaredy Cat (X7185B)
Complements - Scaredy Cat (X7185C)

Cricut Cartridge - Art Philosophy (Z1686)
Embellishments - Black Brads
*All supplies are from Close to my Heart unless otherwise noted.

Hello!!!

Corene here from Corene's Creations

I'm back with another Design Team Project from Craftinandstampin', Jessica Wilson. 

This page came together quick, and was fun to make!

I added a vellum cut out, behind the photo.

I also used some patterned paper from The Chevron Stack by The Paper Studio. I love the pop of color it adds to the page.

I cut out two tags from Heidi Swapp's Vintage Chic collection.

And of course a box...again using Heidi Swapps Vintage Chic.
I also added some rhinestone trim to the top and bottom of the patterned paper.



A few enamel dots to add a little more color.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks page. Please check out Jessica's CTMH site (Craftinandstampin') and all the great product offered.


Here's a start to finish video on how this page came together!
Thanks for stopping by 
~Corene~

 Hello!  Alicia here from Alicia-Time To Create Blog, and Welcome to my Week Two post for Picture My Life Baby Cakes!

If you missed Week One you can read and watch here.

Today I have two layouts to share.  These layouts will become the second and third page in my Baby Album. I am working through the album in chronological order.

Layout #1
In the first Layout I included four photos and one journalling card.  On the three 4x6 photos I added an embellishment I cut from a 3x4 or 4x6 card from the kit adding in how old I was in each of the photos. I am considering details that might be important for future generations to read.  I also added a little embellishment to the 3x4 and 4x6 filler cards.

Layout #1
I cut out this happy banner from a 4x6 card.  I made another little tag and attached it to the banner.  I wrote the date on this banner. I adhered the whole thing with 3D tape directly onto the photo.

Layout #1
Here I added some hearts I cut from other cards and some Close to my Heart Gold Sequins.

Layout #2
 The second Layout focuses on the event of my Baptism.  The photos have lots of detail so I didn't want to add any extra embellishments.  The background of the photos is quite historic because this is where my family goes to church and the buildings have all changed since these photos were taken.  This adds to the feel of the photos, and I didn't want to cover any of these details up.

Layout #2
I made a few adjustments to the filler cards by cutting and layering different cards and adhering them with 3D tape.  I love the cute giraffe picture and I love all the little clouds and love hearts in this kit.  It really is so cute and so "baby".  Its a very well-designed kit.  You can watch the video of how I made the second layout below.






So, are you thinking you might need to get this cute little Baby Cakes kit? Are there some baby photos you could pull out and scrap? You need to visit Jessica's store and help yourself!  While you are there stock up on some sequins and gold gemstones as well! Click the links below to go directly to the products.






Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
Happy crafting,

Alicia xx
