Fall projects from Little Scraps of Heaven Desingns

Just completed a couple projects using files from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs--
SOOOO cute and really easy to work with.
 1st is the "Just Hanging out" file
  I just used 2 bats -didn't want to crowd the card, I shimmer misted the moon and used distress ink to do the night sky.  I Touched all the edges on the bats with alcohol markers and I embossed the tree and distress inked it. The sentiment is vinyl cut on the cricut.

Next is" Pumpkin Peeking Mouse" file
The Pumpkin peeking mouse: made an awesome scrapbook layout.  I embossed the pumpkin pieces and distress inked the edges. The sentiment is vinyl cut on the cricut and the leaves I made from distressed paper and punches.

You Can Never Have Too Much Happy!

 from Paper Crafting World.....Melin has so many cute files, it was hard to pick just one. These files are so versatile and easy to work with.

Here is the September Challenge:
I made a "happy" card today with the PCW Bear with Flower Pot Set CF.
For my Optional Twist I stamped the Sentiment and the Butterfly.

I cut the flowers out a couple times and curled them with my stylus, then doubled them up to give them depth.
I sponged distress ink onto the edges of the bear and to the flower pot and grass.  I inked the edges of some of the flowers too.
I Glittered all the flowers, (I love the Glitter)
I used Glossy Accent on the bears eyes, and nose to make them shine. I used a  little chalk and gel pen to detail his face.
I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly and heat embossed them. The hearts are punches and I popped up the sentiment with 3D foam.

Tim Holtz distress inks and sponges
Wink of Stella Brush glitter - clear
WOW embossing powers
McGill heart punches
Sentiment stamp from KI Hampton arts - Follow Your Dreams set

Some projects from the Lady Cage

Kelli Horger
 1st is the cover and 2 pages of dividers from a Recipe Book I made for my daughter, who is a Chef.  I used mostly the cricut cartridge "from my kitchen" I embellished with glitter glue and glossy accents and used Washi tape to reinforce the edges.

Next was my 1st attempt at a window card. I didn't have the Madison window that inspired the idea, but I got a window on design space - embossed it and attached with 3d foam for the same appearance.  The siding is just overlapping strips of paper. I filled the windowbox with tiny flowers and stems cut from the cricut.

Next is a collage of some paper flowers, made from the cricut and embellished with distress ink, glitter, and shimmer mist.  The background is pastels and I attached the flowers so it can be framed in a shadowbox or in a frame without glass.

Lastly is a premade card left to suit any occasion, as needed. The bear is from cricut teddy bear parade and she is embellished with chalk and gel pens.  I placed her on some contrasting color and patterned paper to make the colors on the bear pop.
