Pretty Autumn card with "Flirty" and embossed resist technique!

This card uses the Flirty paper pack, and the embossed resist technique, with the leaves clear embossed on white daisy cardstock, then sponged with chocolate and autumn terracotta inks... so pretty! I also used Art Philosophy to cut the little scalloped borders :)

One more Moondoggie Layout :)

As you have probably guessed, I'm headed to Hawai'i on vacation in a couple of weeks!  I just love the island theme of the retired "Moondoggie" paper, and snatched up as much of it as I could get my hands on... coming in very handy for my Hawai'i scrapbook layouts!  This layout is from the retired "Magic" scrapbooking program, which I believe you can still find in some book stores.

Loving "Artiste" cricut cartridge!

Here is a "gable" box made using the new CTMH Cricut Artiste cartridge and retired Wonderland paper.  It also features our new self-adhesive "shimmer trim" which I absolutely love!

No Bones about it!

When I saw the new CTMH My Acrylix stamp set "Creepy Creatures" I knew I just had to have it!! It's so cute, and I love the lines drawings, perfect for shading or coloring in with CTMH's new alcohol markers!! And it coordinates perfectly with the new "Moonlight" paper pack - which has many patterns that can easily be incorporated into non-Halloween projects as well!
