Right at Home Scrapbooking: Fall Banner

Hi Everyone, today I have a fun fall banner that I created for Right at Home Scrapbooking using some Simple Stories Sweater Weather!

I started my with some files I purchased in the Silhouette Store to create the layered banner pieces.  I then added some leaves and the letters, popping them up with some foam tape for dimension.  (both cut files from Lori Whitlock)  I fell in love with the little critters & shapes in the Die Cut pack from the Sweater Weather collection and had to add a few of those as well!  Here are some close ups of the letters...

 That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Issues: Anything Goes

Hi Everyone, I have a fun card today that I created for the Paper Issues, Anything Goes Issue.  I know it's a little early for Halloween (unless you're in the grocery store, then you're right on time...) but I couldn't resist playing with my new Lawn Fawn Spooktacular Stamps, and as the name implies...Anything Goes!

I used the paper piecing technique on some Doodlebug Design Ghouls & Goodies papers to create my pumpkin, moon, stars & kitty.  In addition to the Spooktacular stamps, I also used Lawn Fawn's stitched Journaling Card, Sweater Weather Dies & Spring Showers dies.
And no card would be complete without a punny sentiment!  Make sure to link up your projects to the Anything Goes Issue... you could win a prize pack from our sponsor Whisker Graphics!  That's it for today, thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Designs: Another Happy Camper Layout & a Free Cut File!

I'm back today with my second Doodlebug Design Happy Camper layout.  As I mentioned, I truly am not a camper, but in my younger years, we camped as a family all the time!  I remember many a trip to Maine or Canada!  We still have a lot of those pictures, many of which have us wearing trash bags (since it was sure to rain, and we always forgot rain gear!) but I did find some fun pictures to scrap! 
We often camped with the same family...and one of our favorite places was Bunganut Lake in Alfred, ME.  We always made a point of getting some fabulous Maine lobsters for dinner!  Here I am (circa 1974) enjoying the lobsters, and later some S'mores!

Again, I used the Icon Stickers and some Doodlepops to create small scenes. Now for a freebie!!  I created a Silhouette file for the grid and "torn boxes" in my layout and I'd love to share it with you.  You can download the file here. I hope you enjoy it!!  That's it for me today.  Make sure to keep stopping by the Doodlebug blog to check out all of the Happy Camper inspiration from the team!  Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Designs: Happy Camper Layout

Hi Everyone, today I have one of the layouts I created using the new Doodlebug Design Happy Camper collection.  I'm not a big camper, but Happy Camper can be used to scrap all sorts of outdoor activities!
This is me!! My grandmother lived on a pond and I used to love to take my Pocket Fisherman down to the water to catch some of the little fish! (yes, I've just dated myself...)

Happy Camper has some AWESOME Icon made it easy to create little "scenes."

I also fell in love with the Fishies Doodlepops....and had to use them!!!  I made them "swim" on the Babbling Brook Double Sided Cardstock, and gave them some "bubbles" using the sparkly Fall Sprinkles!

Make sure to stop by the Doodlebug blog to see more Happy Camper Inspiration and to find out how you can win some for yourself!  That's it for me today, I'll be back tomorrow with my second Happy Camper Layout & a free cutfile!!

Doodlebug Designs: Ghouls & Goodies Mini Album

Hi Everyone, today I have a fun mini I created for Doodlebug Designs using the new Ghouls & Goodies Collection.  I LOVE Halloween... I love seeing all of the neighborhood kiddos in their costumes, and of course, there is the candy...  Unfortunately my daughter has reached the age where she doesn't Trick or Treat anymore!!!  (sniff...) soooo... I dug out 15 years of pictures to create a mini that shows her in her costumes throughout those years!
The album is made up of pages from Lori Whitlock's Build a Mini Album files.  For my title, I used the new Doodlebug Chippers and some totally adorable Doodlepops!  Each page showcases a different year's costume!

I LOVE the Halloween Treats Sprinkles Shapes!!  And the new Mini Paperclips are fun to use!

I decided to add Sprinkles Vellum in between some of my pages.  Mostly I left them plain, but I couldn't resist adding the Spider from the Diecuts Craft Kit to the one below...even better is that he is double sided so it looks like he's peeking through the next page!  Only Doodlebug could make a spider cute!  Also, if you didn't know, the new Halloween Sprinkles are sparkly!!!

I think I used just about all of the Doodlepops from this collection...they were too cute to resist!

The new Washi tapes are great too...I wanted them to show a bit more on my pages, so I first put them on white cardstock and cut them out so they stand out.

I think I used just about everything in the making of this mini!! There was no sticker sheet or embellishment left untouched!  The great thing about this collection is that it works for all sorts of costumes...cute, scary, bright colors or all coordinates well!  Well, that's it for today, be sure to check out the Doodlebug Blog to see all of the Halloween inspiration! Thanks for stopping by!

Right at Home Scrapbooking: Fall Subway Art

Hi Everyone, I have a fun fall-themed subway art project that I created for Right at Home Scrapbooking.
This was created using Lori Whitlock's Autumn Leaves Silhouette file, and some fun goodies from Simple Stories new Sweater Weather collection.  I first cut the file from my background paper, and backed the empty letters with some cardstock. 
Next, I re cut a couple of the words from the Sweater Weather patterned papers, and popped them up over the original letters using some foam tape for a bit of dimension.

I finished off the frame with some Gold Shimmer twine from The Twinery and a few more leaves that I cut from the Sweater Weather papers.  It all went together pretty quickly and is perfect for fall decorating!  That's it for me today, I'll be back tomorrow with a fun mini album I created for Doodlebug Design using the new Ghouls & Goodies!  Thanks for stopping by.
