It's All In The Paper

I wanted to show you this beautiful layout that I made with the Urban Lily Poppy paper and just a couple of supplies. All it took to create this layout was 2 pieces of cardstock, one sheet of Urban Lily Poppy, some journaling strips, black marker, blue gemstones, and black fabric thickers. This paper is so beautiful on its own that it doesn't need much to make it shine!

Are you ready? She is!

Just a few days to Halloween. Are you ready? In my house it's all black and orange for the occasion, and... we also have a very special witch!
To make this page, I used as a background paper Smootch, coupled with the orange circle of the paper Sugarhigh well with green circles and blacks from Hyperactive.

I surrounded one of them by a ribbon to show in the witch rub-on.
 I did a cloud using an Accent.

Some stickers and a sentence from the paper Number,

and the page for my "witch" is over. Happy Halloween!

We Love You Santa

Hi everyone! It's Janet here today!!

Every year I make a calendar for my niece about her sweet family so this is one of the pages that will go into it.

This beautiful paper made it so easy to pull the layout together.

A closeup of my little Santa and all the glitter.

You can find the paper here at Scrap-Tastic.

Halloween is coming...

With Halloween fast approaching I thought it would be fun to use up some of my Urban Lily papers and make a fun decoration for the house. I don't know about you but we love Halloween on Vancouver Island. The kids get dressed up and go door to door for Trick or Treating. Our community also has a huge bon fire with fireworks after the trick or treating is done. There are parties everywhere and different events. We have pumpkin patches all throughout the island that you go and pick your own pumpkins. Halloween is big!
So in honour of the big day I made a fun witches hat.
There are tons of tutorial online on how to make them but I just rolled up a piece of Urban Lily Happy Everything- Always. I stapled it to secure it, then used adhesive to make sure it wasn't going anywhere.
The best part of the hat was adding fun details. I punched out some ribbed circles from the Urban Lily orange ATC cards. I also used some orange trim I had on hand. I added some black ribbons and a little fly button embellie.
I love checking out different blogs to get ideas like these. There are all sorts of fun witches hats just like mine with different finishing touches.

Thanks for joining me and have a Happy Halloween.

~Easy Peasy Flower Pins~

I created these six inch flower pins for an upcoming layout, but I wanted to share how easy it was to create these fun pins!!  

Items you will need:
- 6" Stick Pins
- Flower Die or Punch of your choice.
- Tulle
- 4mm Beads
- Medium Sized Brads

1.  Punch or Die Cut your flowers and layer them using a brad to attach them together. 
2.  On the back side of the flower, slide your pin down one arm of the brad and add a little glue to secure it.
3.  Tie strips of tulle onto your pin and slide up towards the flower.
4. Add your beads for the stems and you might need to add a tiny amount of glue if your beads are loose.

That's it!!  I will be featuring these pins on a layout coming on the 27th!!

Love in blue

For this LO I choosed a love theme because love is a wonderful thing, isn't it?

As background I used Blackout paper and a part of Calendar. From this paper I cut out the branch and I colored the flowers with a blue marker.

Under the photo, I put the blue circle from Sugarhigh and, as embellishments, were perfect the big heart and the bird from Accents.

I wrote the title with the Alphabet, and I added a little circle, from Hyperactive paper.

Some ribbons and pearls to complete the page, and it's all!
