Relaxation - Paper Ala Mode Challenge

Please join us at the Paper Ala Mode Challenge at Outlawz Challenges. This week's theme is Relaxation - sponsored by the Cutting Cafe. Doesn't an umbrella drink just scream relaxation? I'm using a a sentiment from the Circle Words Set by the Cutting Cafe.  I made my first triple-easel card...very difficult to photograph - but gorgeous to see!

Blog Hop - Lavender Golden Owls

I've been thinking about making Halloween treat bags for the neighbors - I tend to wait until the last minute, then have to scurry.  I decided for the girl ghouls to make something a bit more girlie than Halloweeny, so I chose Lavender Golden digital papers from We Are 3.  I was inspired by a post at Paper Crave.  I like what I ended up with.  Paper Crave provides a great free template, if you're interested.  Here's what I came up with.








Here is the entire list of Blog Hop participants.  Check out the other beautiful projects!

SALSA Card Swap - Birds of a Feather - Using We Are 3 Scents of Christmas

Today I am sharing "Birds of a Feather" using Birdcage Silhouettes (Raccoon Girl Designs).  I had "fun" melding the papers from Scents of Christmas (We Are 3) to form the background of the Beautiful Feather (Love SVG).  I finished off with a sentiment from Early Bird Sentiments (We Are 3).

Thank you for joining us for the new weekly Blog Lovers Blog Hop. Blog Lovers is a Facebook Group for scrappers - we love to share our work with you. Perhaps you'll join us next week - if interested, leave Barb Prendergast a message on her blog (list at bottom of post).
This week at Sizzix Eclips and eCal Users Groups, the challenge is an autumn project.  I am sharing a fun autumn card using the Sunflower file from Etsy Studio and Viney Leaves from My Scrap Chick.  Using a card from this week's Featured Stamper at Splitcoast Stampers, I created this amazing card.  I had to do some serious thinking about how to use the files to get the effect I wanted - very pleased with the results.

      Halloween Card

      One of my favorite holidays is Halloween - pumpkins, costumes, chocolate, tricks,treats, and flying bats.  I love Halloween in Arizona because it's warm enough to sit outside and visit with all the beggars.  The card is inspired by Challenge 51 at Moving Along with the Times - Things That Fly.  I was able to just pull itmes from my stash - which always makes creating easy and fun.  Also entering this card in Challenge #170 at Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes.

      Stick It Down Sketch Challenge using We Are 3's Little Star

      Today I am sharing a layout for my grandson's scrapbook.  Sorry - can't share the photo, but he is playing with bubbles in their yard.  I'm using Little Star digital papers from We Are 3 for this album - fun and bright.  And I'm trying to keep this book simple, rather than embellish them all up for the many challenges I join.  I'm  liking the clean and simple look these pages have for a change.
      My layout was inspired by the August Sketch Challenge at Stick It Down.  I used bubbles instead of paint splatters from the sketch. I love how my title turned out - went simple with a Cut 2 Print rather than layering - so much easier and has a nice clean look.
