Boos & Brews Halloween Cards for Doodlebug

Halloween is one of my favorite crafty seasons of the year so I am always excited to play with everything and make cards, home decor, and of course layouts! I am up today at Doodlebug and have a trio of cards to share with you that I created using the Boos and Brews Collection!

How fun is that mad scientist!?!  This paper actually originally said "I'm mad about Candy" but I changed it to say you so it would work for a card.  Although, in most cases, both are probably true!

I used the splatters from the Odds & Ends to be my base for the word "you" and outlined those in black to make them pop a little more.

"May I be Frank" just made me giggle so I knew it had to go on a card!  Doodlebug rocks punny phrases and words in every collection!

The Eerie Eyes Shape Sprinkles are the best embellishment....grab them while you can and up the fun factor on your projects! I used them throughout my cards!

I'm loving the Cute Clips in the Doodlebug's Collections as well.  They make such a nice accent and the shapes are so clever!

For this card I did layers of the patterned paper and then added the monsters.  The mummy is a Doodle-Pop and the others are from the Icons Sticker Sheet.

The Monster Mash label actually comes from a patterned paper in the collection. That paper is covered with all kinds of labels perfect for embellishing or adding labels to your own spooky brews!

Don't miss out on this fun collection...there's bits and pieces for everyone in it!

Creative Kit Layouts for My Creative Scrapbook

I shared the first of my Creative Kit layouts with you last week and today I am back to share the rest of them.  I really enjoyed Shimelle's Starshine Collection from American Crafts and was excited to play with pieces of it in this kit!

One thing I enjoy doing on layouts is creating scenes and the cloud paper in this kit was screaming for me to do just that!  I created the sun by hand using a circle cutter and just paper strips.  I added lots of outlining to make the clouds pop a little more and look more realistic.

This one uses just two pieces of patterned paper!  The base is one and then I used another one that had a grid design on it to punch out all those circles.  I love it when you can really stretch your supplies and this was the perfect example of that!  

This was my last layout with the kit and was using up bits and pieces of what I had left over.  I wanted to document these silly selfies...even though they aren't the greatest quality picture.  It was a fun day full of sillyness and laughs and that deserved a spot :).  

Have you had a chance to check out the kits from My Creative Scrapbook this month?  They do not disappoint!

My Creative Scrapbook September Creative Kit Process Video

Woosh that is a long title for a blog post!  This month I am doing my first ever video for My Creative Scrapbook.  No one has been doing process videos for the Creative Kit (at least as long as I have been around) and it's time to get that kit in the video line-up.  They have so many amazing videos for the Main Kit and Limited Edition Kit you will want to be sure to check out as well!  Here's the layout I created in the video - a Back to School one for my Middle School son!

This kit features gobs of products from the Starshne Collection by Shimelle from American Crafts.  

Here's the Video:

Be sure to stop by My Creative Scrapbook to check out the full gallery for this collection and all the kits this month!

Where the Wild Things Are: Paper House Productions

Paper House released a licensed collection this summer for  Where the Wild Things Are!  If you are a fan of this childhood favorite you will want to check it out! Today I have a silly layout to share with you featuring this collection!
This Paper Crafting Kit makes it super easy to put together a fun layout! There are multiple sheets of each patterned paper in the kit making it possible for you to use both sides.  I layered the blue star background paper onto the one with words to create my base.  I also matted my picture with another paper that had both text and characters on it.  AND of course I had to fussy cut some of the leafy background!  I outlined both my picture frame and the leaves to match the font in style.
The Cardstock stickers in the kit include a fun font so you can create a title to fit your layout.  
The stickers also include a variety of characters from the book - I liked how this one framed my picture and helped me create a unique title!  The circular stickers you see with "Wild Rumpus!" and "I'll Eat You Up!" are puffy stickers.  Similar to all of Paper House's other Puffy Stickers - they add some nice texture to the project!

2 Peter 3:18 Bible Journaling and Process Video

Two videos in a week??? Today I going  to share a new Bible Journaling piece and process video.  I can't get enough of the Watercolor Twist Pencils from SRM Stickers so I used them to color in another Bible Journaling Page - this one based on 2 Peter 3:18.

All the stamping and coloring took some time but neither were difficult to do thanks to these great stamp sets!  I love the words included in the sets but I also just love the little stars and flowers perfect for coloring!  It's nice to have a variety in size and style too!

Here's the SRM stamp sets that I used to create this:

You can check out the details behind creating it with this video!

Back to School Layouts with My Creative Scrapbook's Main Kit

I love reveal time each month for My Creative Scrapbook!  Today I am gong to kick off my reveal with you by sharing a couple of Back to School layouts I did of my kids using the Main Kit!  Often we like to stick with traditional back to school colors and themes - but you don't have to do that! Sometimes it's just fun to work with what you have!  Today's layouts don't have anything school themed on them but with my title work and some embellishing they still tell the story! First up is the Kindergartener.

Playing off of the fringe trend I decided to cut up that wood paper!  I cut it into strips and then used the lines on it as a guide to make fringe!  I also cut up the trees that come on the patterned paper in the kit and made them into leaves.  Trees weren't working for me for this purpose...But leaves went well with the flow of the layout.  I just love the rich and vibrant colors in this kit!

Next up is my girl and her 4th grade layout!  The kit included a die cut piece this month!  I love that Pam is adding those in every once in awhile!  I cut mine up in 4 pieces and backed each piece with different patterned papers.  I used them to border the layout and point the eyes in towards the picture!  This layout shows you that same wood paper as the above layout but left alone in it's natural state ;).

I'll be back later this week with more layouts from the new kits!

Brown Bag Wreath for Doodlebug

Didn't Doodlebug just hit it out of the park with the Flea Market collection?  I had so many ideas swirling in my head on what I wanted to do with it!  Ultimately it came down to a wreath.  I needed a fresh wreath to hang up and it was a great way to get some of Flea Market up around my hosue!  Here's the wreath I created using a combination of Flea Market and Brown Paper Bags!

There are parts of this wreath that are self-explanatory from the picture but there's a lot that isn't! With that in mind I decided to create a Process Video that walks you through how I created the actual wreath, the banner, and the leaves!  

Hope that answers some questions for you!  

I knew i wanted to incorporate a lot of the Odds & Ends into my banner and I actually ended up using them almost exclusively!  That's good, just means I have stickers to play with still!  One of my sons loves foxes - so I was thrilled to see them featured in the collection!

In addition to the Odds & Ends I also used some Shape Sprinkles and Cute Clips!  I love those Acorn Cute Clips!

I also used my Silhouette Cameo to create some leaves - adding ink and doing some folding helped add some dimension to them! 

Stay tuned over the next couple weeks to see all kinds of brilliant inspiration from the Design Team using Flea Market!

Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop and Giveaway

It's time for another Stash Busting Blog Hop with some of my talented friends!  I love breaking in to my stash just for fun and creating something to share with y'all but haven't been able to play along for awhile! I'm glad to be back and hopefully getting into the swing of things again!  I do have a giveaway to share at the end of the post!

Here's the Hop List!

Christine ***You Are Here***

The layout I created for today is not from a real old stash of stuff but I purged so much with the move that my options are limited.  So I got out my Puppy Love Collection from Doodlebug and created another layout with that!

I always love the collage style layouts that Melinda Spinks (an amazing fellow team member at Doodlebug) creates and I have played in that style a few times, today was no exception.  I used up all my various stickers, Odds & Ends, and Sprinkles to fill up the circle with all kinds of cuteness.  A simple but adorable picture took it's place in the bottom with a couple more hearts for added cuteness :).

As I mentioned earlier I am doing a giveaway!  Today I am giving away a $15 Gift Certificate to SRM Stickers!  You can get stamps, stickers, containers, planner supplies, and so much more there!

You can get up to two entries for the gift certificate:
1) Follow me on Instagram @cameyer71
2) Follow me on Facebook
and then
3) Leave me a comment here telling me what you did!

I'm the end of the hop but you can start the whole thing over if you didn't already come from there!  Wendy kicks things off!

DIY Framed Burlap Cross

We've recently moved into a new home and burlap is one of my main accents in my decorating scheme. When I saw that SRM was releasing some new burlap ribbons, I was very excited! I am up on their blog today with a simple DIY burlap cross that you can make with just a few simple supplies!

First off you need a frame of some sort - I pulled an old oval shaped one that I was no longer using but rectangle of any sort would also work great! Don't have one laying around - hit up a yard sale or a thrift store - this is a fun time to upcycle!  I took my sandpaper to it and distressed it like crazy.

Attach the Wired Burlap Ribbon both verically and horizontally (I used hot glue to attach mine).  Then criss cross the the center using White Jute - tie the knots tight in the back and do another round if you want a little more to it.  And that's it - super simple but a beautiful addition to any cross loving home!
