October DT kit

Do you need some papers and embellies for your Christmas pictures? If so, I have a treat for you! I got to use the beautiful line Christmas Mint from SEI in my Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Design Team kit this month.

I added some Pearls & Crystals "Garnet" by Prima Marketing and popped up some punched ornaments to the fussy cut garland on "Tree Trimmers Glow".

I used Angel Wings Shimmerz on the green ring of "Our White Christmas" so that isn't the true color, but gives the paper some extra shimmer. The brown piece is by Chatterbox and has a metallic design in it - just beautiful!

The chocolate brown flocked paper on "Fuzzy Jammies" is by Chatterbox. The big tree and gifts are fussy cut from patterned paper.

On "Cuddle Break" - I got the idea for the layered tree from a blog, but they used fabric - great way to use up scraps.

The white flourishes in the flowers on "Dinner for 5" are fussy cut from left over pieces from the trees on one of the papers.

On "oo0... & ...ahh" I added gold Stickles to the trees on the KI Memories Sheer.

Dig out your metallic pens and use them with this line of paper - I used some bronze around the edge of the picture on "It's Magic".

If you like papers with lots of texture, shiny foil, embossing and varnished layers - this line is calling your name! The line also has matching stickers and accents, perfect for embellishing your layouts and or cards.

October ad challenge

I am just like everyone else - wondering where September went! With a new month comes another ad challenge on Scrap Attack Scrapbooking Message Board. I love loooking for ads that I hope will inspire our members to scrap another layout. I chose this ad for the fall colors and photo placement. I think this one lends itself to a lot of possibilities. If you get inspired, please jump over to the SAS gallery and post your layout, I'd love to see your interpretation.

These pictures are of our oldest daughter in 1976.
