Paper Smooches Chubby Chums little puppy card

I used my Paper Smooches Chubby Chums little puppy stamp and made this adorable card! Paper Smooches Chubby Chums Stamp set. Basic Grey card base and chipboard pieces all from my stash that were part of a kit. Yellow letters from Pink Paislee Sweetness glitter sticker alphabet (also been in my stash and dated 2010!!). Fun to get things used, isn't it? Black pen and brown ink. Copics to color: E00, E33, 0.

DCWV card

Today, I decided to make a fall card despite the high temperatures outside! Maybe, if I make it, Fall will come! ;)
Well, here is my card made for a few challenges to do with fall and orange, so I used a doily die, as well as, fall leaves from a stationary store which are normally used for confetti but we know how our scrapbooking minds go!!! I colored my Magnolia stamp using mostly oranges, Sitting Tilda, with Copics and all the papers are DCWV, from The Magnolia Way, and the Serenity cardstock stacks which had metallic, glittered and textures using the orange color schemes. The sentiment is just something I found in my stash. Hope you enjoy the card!
Simply Create Too-Use Orange or Halloween Challenge #72
My Craft Creations-Anything goes
Here is the PaperCrafter's Corner Magazine Monday Challenge Week #72
I was "inspired" by:
1. All the orange shapes and used the leaves for that, as well as the golden orange doily, I made with The Serenity Stack from DCWV.
2. The yellow in the magazine background, I made with the DCWV The Magnolia Way for the yellow patterned background.
3. I also used the top border and turned it to put mine on the side.
4. And last, I used the adorable Tilda for my "face".
Love all the Magazine Mondays from Paper Crafter's Corner blog for inspiring me to go further.

Scrapbooks & Cards Today WCD Challenge Card

This is the sketch for the Scrapbook & Cards Today's World Cardmaking Day celebration 8:00 A.M. with Marla Kress, Challenge for Saturday, Oct. 4th.  It was suggested to create this look with a cutting machine so I used my Cricut, Gypsy and cartridge called Cindy Loo which had this adorable doily shaped square as one of its images.  My first sentiment was too long and didn't cut out well, so I thought that I would use this fantastic die from Simon Says Stamp HERE. Hope you like it!
Materials: All papers are K&Co and the Hugs die was Simon Says Stamp exclusive. Cricut cutting machine and Gypsy to line things up for size, and Cindy Loo Cartridge for this design.

Webster's Pages Family Traditions Card for SCT WCD 7:00pm sketch

From the Scrapbooks & Cards Today's 7:00pm Sketch, I used Webster's Pages Family Traditions and made this card. I used Thankful for the background and then Funny Stories for the strips, and one of their Mini Craft Bags for the envie. The sentiment was on the bag so I didn't add anything more since I wanted that to be the center of attention and added wire stars wrapped in washi tape to cover the wires. Also, added a designer paperclip at the top. All products were from the same Webster's Pages Family Traditions collection.
I am also posting this for the fall challenge on Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday Week #71.

Paper House Productions New York City Travel layout

I had a fantastic trip to New York City!! I did so much in just a few days, I don't even have enough time to tell you! I was even at NBC's Morning Show. Not great pictures so didn't add those. But while I was up early and standing outside that Saturday in February, an empty parade float came speeding by. That's when I realized it was Chinese New Year's and this was headed to the celebration. It is a fabulous event where everyone celebrates an old tradition and to be able to attend it in the infamous China Town, New York City, was fantastic! I still had to pack my bags to leave early that evening, so ran back to my hotel in Manhattan, I left them with my concierge, and took a taxi straight into China Town area, walked around and had so much fun! That's why I included my picture with the man dressed in the Dragon head. I took a selfie while on the subway coming back. Other things on my travels were to go to the also famous Russian Tea Room and take a picture with the gorgeous Doorman. Can you tell it was freezing outside but he didn't seem to mind at all.  Also, went to the Broadway Musical Wicked, and loved it. Also, got to shop at the hugest store in the world, Macy's Herald Square! What fun I had!! Can't wait till my husband can come with me!
Scrapbooking supplies were:
Paper House Productions New York City Map 12" Scrapbook Paper
Paper House Productions New York City Cardstock Sticker
Scrapbook Adhesives 3L Mounting Squares
EK Success Powder to de-stick some of the stickers.
Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday Week #70
I was inspired by the bold headline that ‘frames’ the content and the neutral background.  I just couldn't leave so much white space and chose to add little "bits" everywhere. I also added a bank of pics under instead of over the center picture.

Echo Park So Happy Together Layout for Paper Crafter's Corner Challenge Week #69

This layout is of my son's first return home from college after 3 months!! We had such a great time. My journaling was: "There's nothing like all of us together again!" The paper ironically is called Echo Park So Happy together. The layout is from Scrapbook Generation's idea sketch and sample from over a year ago.
I thought of doing it after the Paper Crafter's Corner Challenge with all the houses and pictures. Reminded me of the patterned paper's houses so drug it out, and went blank! So after some help from Pinterest!!!! I was inspired! Love my Pinterest boards, and all the delight of finding something I have saved for another time to do. It worked great and I even have more sketches to do yet!

Hope you try your hand at it too! Love Steph's blog!!
