Teresa Collins Life Emporium: Hello Autumn

 
Hello all! To celebrate my favorite season I'm sharing a layout I created using Teresa Collins Designs Life Emporium collection.  I used the beautiful wood grain print as my background, followed by using white cardstock and the Bubbles Placemat Layout  #65811
  cut file from Silhouette. 
 
 
 
I love all the little pieces of ephemera included in Teresa's collections.  I layered a few of the journaling cards with this cute pink and white polka dot number.  I also added a journaling sticker from Teresa's Basically Essential line. 
 
 
 
 I used the Hello Autumn Title (#66716) cut file and gold foil paper to create my title. I think the gold goes perfect with this collection!
 
I added some random circles of patterned paper and gold foil to a few of the centers of the circles in the background. 

 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Check out Life Emporium and the rest of Teresa's awesome lines by clicking here.

Paper Camellia: Happy Day

Hello! I have a layout up on the Paper Camellia blog today with a layout I created using the Main and Add On kits for October. I love all of the colors as well as the fun gold accents in this kit!  So fun to create with!
 
 
 
Here, I used some die cuts and stickers from the Shimelle line and MME's Mint Julep.  Loving the little gold glitter hearts also from Mint Julep. 
 
I love pennants...I paired a couple die cuts from the Mint Julep Ephemera pack with a gold glitter sticker from Pebbles' Jen Hadfield line. 

 
 Included in the Main kit are these fun wooden veneer words from Studio Calico!  They are perfect as a title or accent!  I layered two tag stickers from the Jen Hadfield line underneath. Also, you can spy more gold yumminess:  the gold foil dot/cream paper and gold glitter scallop tape (also from Jen Hadfield) found in the Add On Kit. 
 
Included in the Main Kit are these fabulous My Mind's Eye gold rub-ons!  So fun to use! I layered some tidbits here above my photo.   Also, in the Add-On kit is star print vellum from Studio Calico...it is so beautiful in person!

Chic Tags Sketch Challenge

Hello...hope this finds you doing well! It has definitely become fall here in Central Illinois!  I love the colors of autumn but I'm not ready for the cold!!
 
Today, I am sharing a sketch challenge I had up on the Chic Tags blog this past Friday! 
 My sketches are pretty simple...I like to leave room for creativity! 
 
 
And here is my layout I created using the sketch and the Let's Go collection! 
 
 
 Loving the wood veneers and gold foil accents on the Let's Go Tidbits! 

I use my gold foil letter stickers from the Good Tidings line a lot...and I'm running out. I may need to find some online!  They go perfect on many of my projects! You can also see some Let's Go flair in the bottom right corner. 

Another Let's Go Tidbit I stapled to the top of my photo! I love using them in this way!

For my journaling, I used a few Let's Go Label Stickers....love the colors and they are just the right size to jot a few things down about your page. 
 
So if you want to  play along with my sketch, you have until the end of the month to link up your layout in the comments!  I will be giving away some new exclusive fall Chic Tags goodies!!
Have a great day!

Happy Friday! It's time for another Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop!  If you are following the blog roll, you came from Kristy's blog. Below is the full list!  Thanks for joining us! I love having to use up my stash...I'm definitely a paper hoarder!

Wendi http://scrappydayinparadise.blogspot.com/2014/09/love-practical-scrappers-use-your-stash.html
Cathy http://alteredplayground.blogspot.com...

I pulled out some old October Afternoon for my layout!  This collection is called Report Card and I think I've had it for at least 3 years, if not more.
 
 
 
 I used some of the coordinating letter stickers from Report Card, along with newer OA stickers from Daily Flash.

 
I used one of the journaling cards to type up a little info about my photos. These cards were the ones you actually could punch out of a 12x12 sheet!



I used buttons that actually  go with the School House collection but I thought they worked! I also added some small wooden veneer stars from Studio Calico. 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you get out some paper  you've been hanging on to and make a layout or two with it!   Next up is Cheryl...so go give her some love!
Have a great day!

Paper Secrets September 15th Sketch Reveal

Hi friends...September is moving right along!  This week Paper Secrets revealed their second September sketch!  This sketch's challenge word is APPLE.
 
 
For my layout, I used Farmhouse Paper's 309 collection. My challenge word items are:  A-arrow  P-punch (pennants) P-pin L-letters E-enamel dots.
 
My gold glitter letters are the new Shimelle American Craft Thickers. I love using these on my pages!
 




I used a hand punch to create these pennants under my photo. I then stitched through with my sewing machine and added a cute chipboard pin from the 309 collection.  


The cork arrow is from Studio Calico (also from the Paper Secrets shop!)  The date stamp is also Studio Calico! I added some enamel dots from my stash!
