Nevermore Non Halloween Layout

Nevermore is perfect Halloween paper but I wanted to do something with it that wasn't Halloween.  I had seen a layout on pinterest last year that I really liked.  When I saw this paper with the pretty Eggplant paper and the elegant Black Background paper I remembered it.  So it's flower, butterflies and sparkle for my Nevermore Layout.

Twinkle Stamp of the Month

The stamp of the month for October, Twinkle, is perfect for your Holiday Cards.

This card features the papers from our White Pines paper collection.  I colored our Sparkles with our Carmine ShinHan Marker.  I will be posting more Holiday cards that will be available for purchase as a kit.

Love getting Mail!

Yesterday I was thrilled to see that I had a card in the mail from my good friend and fellow CTMH consultant Terri Anderson.  Look at the fabulous card she sent me.

This is the new SteamPunk Scoundrels stamp set, which is my favorite new stamp set (B1503).

This is the inside of the 4 x 4 card.
She used our Nevermore paper with Eggplant and Slate cardstock that comes in the pack. She added a some Black Shimmer Trim (Z1809), we now have 13 different colors. The front square that the spider sits on is watercolored with our new paints (Z3132).

The stars are embossed with Confetti Stars (Z3119) one of our new Embossing Folders.
Thank you Terri Anderson for my wonderful surprise!

Nevermore Card

Nevermore is our new Halloween paper ( X7198B). It is found in our new supplement Holiday Expressions, you can get one free with any order on my site.
The card is made using my Cricut Explore, and I added the cut outs to a standard 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card.
There are 2 cut outs, on the left and right side.
I used our Artbooking cartridge ( Z3169) for the web, moon, bats and boo.
It is a little hard to see but the moon is white Glitter paper.  It comes in the Gold Glitter packet, along with a pretty gold and a lighter beige gold, one sheet of each color. It's a beautiful pack of glitter paper. Z3076 at $5.95
The Boo is also Glitter paper, purple Z1992.
Card inside, Happy Halloween is from our new Steampunk Scoundrels.

Zoe Flip Flap Layout

This fabulous paper is called ZOE! and it's available now.
Close To My Heart has made a few products from the newest catalog available early, whole catalog next month.

My friend Dana Kessler made a great flip flap layout using our Seaside papers a while back and I wanted to give that a try on my Zoe papers. Take a peak at Dana's here.
Mine is simple but that is the look I was going for.

These fun new flowers are from our new cartridge Artistry which is also available now for $99 and for those that have the Explore machines a digital version for only $79. 
This is the Summer side of the layout with the large 6 x 12 flip flap closed, there is also a 2 x 2 and a 4 x 6 flip flap on the front here, both with white mats here.

This is what the page looks like open.
You get additional mats for more photos and a place for some hidden journaling.

Here is the fun side of the layout closed.
Another large 6 x 12 flip flap is on the right side here.
Opened up it looks like this.
Flip flaps are a great way to add more photos to your layouts and makes even a simple layout like this fun and fabulous. We have a variety of different size to choose from too.  They are found in the Scrapbooks and Accessories section on my website.

Lettering on this layout was done using the Artbooking cartridge.

Convention Mini Album

Wanted to share the little Mini Mix Album that I made for my gals that attended Convention this year.
Because we are getting all new patterned paper, B&T, I decided to do a album with cardstock.  Since we were at Disneyland in Anaheim I decided to go with my Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge.  Here it is, perfect for those photo's they took at convention.
