Good morning!

When I was on vacation I made it a point to scrapbook a bit. My group had their 24 hour challenge (which I won!!) and I did two of the monthly challenges.

Here are all my pages~

 The 24 hour challenge using October Afternoon Holiday Style.  
The monthly sketch using more of the Holiday Style collection.

The monthly sketch rotated using Nikki Sivils Tree Love. I dug deep in my stash for this stuff! I added some newer Thickers and a burlap leaf cut from some paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby a few months ago.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Lots of leaves



I’ve had a busy afternoon. I made 4 cards!


Today I’ll show you the first two.  I had to use a sketch for a swap in a card group. It had tons of circles but I envisioned leaves since fall is still here and it’s my favorite season 🙂


2015 Card 110 - MFT LJD Fall Foliage


I die cut a bunch of leaves from Carta Bella’s Fall Blessings papers and cardstock from MFT and SU.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Leaves and Small Stitched Leaves dies. I think these are among my favorite dies!  The sentiment is from MFT’s LJD Fall Foliage stamp set.  I added a bunch of Autumn Harvest sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to embellish the card a bit.


I had a bunch of leaves leftover so I made a second card and rotated the sketch.


2015 Card 111 - MFT LJD Fall Foliage-001


I didn’t take any pictures of the insides but I added leftover leaves to both to use them up.


That’s all for now! I’m going to a Stampin’ Up! card class tonight to make Christmas shaker cards. Should be lots of fun!

Sending Thankful Thoughts



I have a fall card to share tonight. I had one more fall swap to make and I chose to use MFT’s weekly sketch. I replaced the stars with leaves and used some bling where the little circles are.


2015 Card 107 - MFT Falling Leaves


I cut the Falling Leaves dienamics from Cranberry Cocktail, Persimmon, Lemon Drop and Olive cardstocks.  I placed them on a piece of paper from MFT’s Fresh Squeezed Chevron 6×6 pad. The bling is from Queen & Co.  The sentiment was added from MFT’s Pure Innocence Thankful Friend stamp set.


Here is the sketch, it’s one I will definitely use again! (I am envisioning a card with snowflakes!)



Have a great night!

Fall ATCs



Tonight I am sharing two fall themed artist trading cards that I made in the last few days.


Fall atcs


The one on the left uses Lawn Fawn’s Happy Harvest stamp set. I watercolored him and the background with Tim Holtz distress inks. The one on the right uses Tim Holtz leaf dies and Lawn Fawn stitched leaf dies. They are left over from a card I made last month. Both ATCs have paper from Doodlebug’s Fall Friends. The blessings sentiment is from Newton’s Nook Falling into Autumn stamp set.


Thanks for stopping by!
