The challenge this week over at Practical Scrappers http://www.practicalscrappers.com/ is to use office supplies on your card or layout. There is a great video on how to make the flower paper clips as well. This page is a page from a mini book Im making for my mom. I used the flower paper clip that I made and I also used staples in my ribbon across the bottom of the page. The pictures on the pages of the book are of my Grandma who has passed away. I left the page in the middle so that my mom could add her own journaling of these pictures. Also there are 3 small tags that are in the front pocket for more notes and dates about these pics. Happy Tues and thanks for looking.

Here are couple of pages from the mini album Im making my mom for Christams. Shhh... dont tell her. Hopefully she wont be peeking here and see them. The pages are 6x6. The pink flower paper is from a DCWV stack I got several years ago and it reminded of wallpaper that would maybe be in my Grandmas house long ago. On the left is my mom and her childhood friend Margie. I used som vellum for the first time behind the photo and on the tag for this picture. The tags for both pages were cut with the DC cart. The tag was a charm feature. The right had page has the same flower paper along with Prima bittys from http://yourmemorieshere.com. I used Tim Holts distressing ink in Walnut brown as well. The best of friends is a rub on. Hope my mom and you like it. Happy Tuesday and thanks for looking.

I made these BOO Blocks to decortate the top of my mantel for Fall/Halloween. I used wood blocks my dh cut for me. The font is Mickey Font. I cut the letters out on my E and traced them onto the blocks. I then painted the letters black and the sides a pumpkin orange. I added black and white polka-dot ribbon and toole to finish off the blocks. For the mantel I add the cotton spider web stuff with some spiders and skulls. Also added a bunch of fall leaves and a few fall flowers. Im going to add a black tree and some pumpkins that I cut out to the big white space above to help fill in and complete the whole look. Thanks for looking and Happy Thrusday.

Here is a layout I did of my 2 older boys at the Petrified Forest this summer. I used more paper from the Animal Cracker stack. That would be the side border. I used my Mickey and Friends cart for the sign wich I cut out with a shadow and embossed with my Tiny Bubbles folder. I used Base Camp for the title which I cut out in Design Studio. I welded the shadow and then cut it out in the brown. The green is the top layer. It is all inked with copper ink from CTMH. The circle is cut from the PS cart with a $1 stamp on it that says explore with some journaling. The Expressions and Cartidges and embossing folders I used can be purchased here at http://yourmemorieshere.com. Have a happy and haunted Monday. Thanks for looking.
I somewhat scraplifted this card from Creations with Christina. You can check out her awsome blog here http://www.creationswithchristina.com/. If you go to her list of videos you will see one for a pink and brown card. Hers is much cuter than mine, but this is the one I came up with. The base of the card is from the stack Animal crackers. What an awomse stack. You really should check it out. You will be seeing more of this paper from me as Im going to use it for our zoo pics. Any how I used my Swiss dots folder on this to give it more character. I also used the small circle embossing folder from the Circle set. The owl is a sticker I had in my stash. The pink and brown ribbon is from HL. Have a happy and haunted Monday. Thanks for looking.
Here is another Halloween card I made. The haunted house and the saying our Studio G stamps that I won in an Rak. The sliver ink I used for them is from CTMH as well as is the black twine around the bottom of the card. I attached the twine together with the black button and a glue dot. The Halloween pumpkin paper is DCWV that I won in another RAK last year. The little black spider is a sticker. Have a Happy and Haunted Monday. Thanks for looking.
