Thanks to a huge snow storm, we didn't get to celebrate with our families yet. On the up side, being snowed in for 3 days gave me plenty of time to play with my newest Life Preservers kit! I have to admit I was a bit intimidated, yet super excited to get the papers from the SassafrasLass Amplify line. The patterns are a bit more crazy than I would normally choose, but I was quite eager to push myself outside my usual realm of scrapping and see what I could do with them. I have to say I have had an absolute blast playing with these papers!!!
You know how I love my layers! Yes, I just had to try it! When I first saw these papers, I instantly thought of this photo of my grandmother. I think these fun, bright, daring patterns match her personality. To do the journaling, I put the rubon directly on the twill.
I also had to try out a style away from my usual, yet bringing in some of my usual stitching and such to make it my own! This photo of my boys is over 15 years old, but it still makes me laugh everytime I see those little faces smashed up against the window!
To make this little purse, I covered a fry box. No, not a dirty one! After cutting an oval for the top, I punched two holes and threaded the ribbon/twill through the holes for the handle. I finished by decorating with some lace and a flower. I used a velcro dot for the closure. It is the prefect size for a little treat or even a gift card!
And last but not least, I also made up a quick cute card.

This is the sketch we were to work from
And here is my version
After looking at it for a bit, I decided that the blue plaid was to bold to go all the way across the layout. I cut the end off the right side, but now it is to dark to get good photos! Oh well!! I'll try again tomorrow! Here is it is anyway!!
All of the papers used are from My Minds Eye, as well as the frame, overlay, die cuts, words, and all of the ribbons. Most of the products are from the Wild Asparagus and 29th Street Market lines.

To make the scarecrow, I started out with a preprinted tag board scarecrow I had purchased through Oriental Trading as a craft project for my daycare kids. With my printer, I copied each of the body parts for a pattern. After I used my pattern pieces to cut body parts and clothes, I inked each piece, and then assembled by attaching onto the tag board parts for stability.
Here is a lo I created using these gorgeous papers!

2. Use TWO patterned papers.
3. Use Ribbon
4. Use a favorite THANKSGIVING RECIPE and a photo of either the person the recipe came from or of the food or both.

I used a recipe that I found several years ago in a Taste of Home magazine. It quickly became a family favorite and is requested for almost every family gathering. The best part, it is super quick and easy to make!!

As soon as the little treats arrived, my son emailed to tell me that they all appreciated the homemade goody, and they really got a kick out of the fact that I had tucked in Spongebob! By coincedence, while confined to the ship lately, they had been watching a series of Spongebob episodes! Too fun!
Stop back tomorrow for more Halloween surprises!!

I created this for Krista's Bingo Challenge. I used 10 or more buttons, staples, torn paper, and a stamped image.
I also finished Rhonda's Mini album Make N Take. I am going to slip this into Drew's stocking for Christmas. Naaa, I'm not to worried about him coming here and seeing it! I decided not to post photos of the pages this time. It is about a big hunting trip, and I didn't want to offend anyone with the contents.

Here is my challenge:
What's a party without friends!? I hope you don't mind, but I've invited Danny Dracula, Freddy Frankenstein, Matilda Mummy, and Wanda Witch.
My challenge to you is to create a layout in honor of our friends. It does not need to be fall or Halloween related...create whatever theme you like. However, in honor of our friends your layout must contain the following:
Danny Dracula - Red (Danny's favorite color. It does not need to be the dominate color. Danny says jsut a drop of blood...I mean color is fine!)
Freddy Frankenstein - brads or eyelets ( they remind Freddy of his bolts!)
Maltida Mummy - Ribbon or trim
Wanda Witch - bling or glitter (Wanda says even witches like a little glitz when going out over the town!)
And here is my example….don’t you just love these Collage Press papers?! My favorite!!
For my make N take, I created these fun little treat bags! (again with some awesome Collage Press papers!) These would be fun for neighbors and coworkers!
Directions:You can use any size square, depending on what and how much you want to put inside. A 12x12 is large enough to put several things in, and 6x6 is perfect for a gift card. I made mine 8x8.
Step 1: cut a square from double sided paper ( I cut mine 8x8)
Step 2: fold in half to form a triangle
Step 3: bring bottom left corner up until straight across and fold
Step 4: bring right corner up until straight across and fold
Step 5: Bring one layer of the top point down and fold
Now, you should have a pocket that looks like this:
Step 6: Decorate!!

I tried and tried to come up with ideas for the Maya Road Sheer House mini album in the project kit. Beings the farm girl that I am, it kept screaming “barn” at me, soooo barn it is!! Take a gander and let me know what you think!!
*don't forget, you can click on the photos to enlarge them*
I tried to stick with just the Pink Paisly papers and punchouts from the kit as closely as possible. To create the trim on the barn, I cut stips from the excess on the punchout page. For the cow, I cut the white body parts from the punchouts!
