Remix of a Christmas card!

After my monthly card club I often have leftover card kits that I like to put together. I usually do the same as the example for club, but this time, I came up with these different cards using the kit for my September 2009 Bright Christmas card. My favorite one is probably the "a Christmas wish for ewe" the little hat came from the Merry Persuits stamp set.

Back to School Layout - colors used: Autumn Terracota, Honey, Outdoor Denim and White Daisy (this color scheme came from Jeanette Lynton's Color Me Monday Challenge!)

Just a note: the Back to School layout can easily be used for another theme as the title is the only thing that makes it 'school'.

Pumpkin Patch layout

I had so many adorable pictures of my son at the pumpkin patch last year I had a hard time picking which ones to scrap. I think these ones show a good summery of his fun day! The photos are the main focus and set the mood for the layout. I used some background stamps to make my own patterned paper and then simply titled my layout using our awesome large alphas.

A Sneak Peak at a FUN new stamp set from the Fall Catalog!

I got to play this weekend with an adorable NEW stamp set that will debut in the Fall/Winter 2009 Catalog, out next month. MERRY MONSTERS was a definate on my wish list and when I remembered I had a $10 credit for winning a contest a few months back I immeditely ordered this adorable little set. My family is known for "nicknames" and I often refer to my sweet little kiddos as my little monsters. Well when I decided I wanted to make something fun this weekend I decided to try out one of these fun True Fit Folio Accordian Albums. There are 6 tags that can be pulled out for each of my mother's Grandkids to write a little note to their Grandma. I added several picture mattes to display Grandma's "Little Monsters" from their different Halloween adventures. The original creator of the True Fit Folio Accordian Album is Kelly English-Triggs. Thanks Kelly! Hope you enjoy! :)
