Autumn Fun

Moxxie Fall Blog Hop - join the Moxxie Muses and hop to win a fabulous prize! Begin the hop here.

Today my first post for Just Imagine Crafts is up on their blog! I made a scrapbook layout of my great-niece, Aria. I cut circles for the layout, using the Kreaxions circle cutter, which is a great tool! Small and lightweight, this will cut circles from .5" to 10". It's easy to use and you get perfect circles everytime!!

I also used the star template, traced it onto the purple Doodlebug paper and cut it out. I then punched around the star with Kreaxions punch #923 to make the doily. Isn't it pretty? I also used the same punch to make the gold vellum border. This is the negative border piece.

Follow the links above if you'd like to purchase the Kreaxions products I used! I also recommend checking out the Just Imagine online store for lots of other great products. Have a happy day!!

Kreaxion supplies used: Circle cutter and Punch #923

From my stash: Doodlebug "Ghouls & Goodies" papers, purple Thickers, Pretty Little Studio scarecrow, BoBunny "Delilah" paper

Moxxie Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the Moxxie Muses Fall Blog Hop! Today I am sharing some teacher gifts that I made using the Brainiac and Grid Iron lines.

I bought mum plants for Milo and Liam (my great-nephews) to give to their preschool teachers. The plants were in plastic pots and needed jazzing up! First, I die cut scalloped circles from the Moxxie papers and layered them to plant stakes I got at a craft store. Next, I added the owl and football helmet stickers. Then I tied a bow on the owl stakes, wrapped the mum pots in burlap tied with twine, added the plant stakes and the gifts were done.

I also die cut an owl out of the Brainiac papers and attached it to a small basket that we filled with candy. The boys gave this to the secretary of the school.

Lots to Share Today!!!

I have so much to share today - new projects, new design team and new things happening at some of my dt blogs! So let's get started...

First, let me say that I am very excited because I made the Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions design team! This company has lots of punches, dies and a great circle cutter which I will be using in upcoming projects.

I am guest designing for Ooh La La Challenge Blog during the month of September! The cards I made for this reveal use the Yesterday's Memories (Washing Day) and Carnival of Colour (Poppies) papers and card toppers. Check out my cards on the OLLC blog.

I made two cards for Gecko Galz this month for my design team gallery. Love the fall and Halloween images and papers!

The theme at Make My Monday this week is Indian Summer. We were to use lots of bright colors which is never a problem for me!! I used a Jolee's flower sticker from my stash and built on the hot pink color for the rest of my card.

We have new team members at Unruly Paper Arts and the September RAQ starts today. The theme is The Dark of Night. The September issue at Unruly is "Gotta Dash" and you will see lots of clean and simple or quick and easy cards and projects. Check it all out here.

Fall Cutie

Hi, I'm here today to share a scrapbook layout with you. Moxxie's gorgeous new collection, Autumn Glory, was perfect for this page. My great-nephew, Milo, is dressed up as a gnome and sitting in a pile of leaves. He loved posing for the camera!

I used the Fanciful Flowers paper for the base of my layout. I think the cluster of flowers in the corner is so beautiful! I also love the distressed look to the background of this paper. Next, I cut banner pieces from the Season's Beauty paper, using the front and back of the paper. I added the word "Cutie" with the new White Alpha stickers and stapled the pennants to a piece of brown ribbon. I matted my photo onto a piece of gold cardstock.

Then I began die cutting. I cut leaves from Foliage in Flight, Season's Beauty and Bountiful Bouquet papers, inked the edges and folded them a little bit to add texture. I also cut a doily from the Bountiful Bouquet paper. I added the "Season of Change" and "fall frolic" stickers from the cardstock sticker sheet. Lastly, I fussy cut a flower from one of the stickers. I put the sticker on paper first to make cutting easier. The photo below shows how I clustered the items together.

I really love this new Moxxie line of papers and stickers! Autumn Glory is the perfect collection to use for fall photos!

Other supplies used: tiny attacher (Tim Holtz), doily (Sizzix), leaves (Spellbinders)
