It's a Fall Thing

Hi Friends.  I have been on the design team for Scrapalicious USA for a year and a half. It's been fun, and a challenge...but it's with sadness to announce that the store is closing.  The design team has at least 2 more challenges to share with you while we work on getting the news out on the great deals there now as they liquidate the current inventory.
One thing I have to say is the prices were always fantastic.  As it stands now, the owner will take an additional 20% of the current prices (which are already at 25% off) for a 45% off total.  I recommend using the shopping cart until it is time to completely check out, then copy that information over into an email and shoot your order over to Cindy at  She will invoice you via paypal for the total plus actual shipping.
In the meantime, we are running a challenge with a FALL theme.  There is still a $10 gift certificate to be given away that can be used at the store.  Here is what I created made from items I received from the store:
My Minds Eye Papers, border punches and stickles!

I recommend you browse around the store and see all the fantastic deals still there.  When it's gone it's gone...and there are only a few short weeks left.

Halloweenie at Scrapalicious

Hello!  We have another fun challenge starting today at Scrapalicious USA.  The theme is anything Halloween!  How fun and easy is that?  I decided to create a fun little item that would carry over well into other holidays upcoming.  These little books tote a post-it type pad and perfect for gift giving.  Plus they are so fun to make!

Just a Pretty Card or 2

I have been remiss at posting things here like I should.  I made a couple items lately that I thought it would be fun to share with you this drizzly Saturday.  I have loads of rubber stamps, I even have my own line of rubber stamps...but ever since my introduction to digital stamps I haven't felt the desire to drag out my stamps and ink and make the effort.  Today I decided it was time to do that.  I forgot how much I enjoy the look of a stamped image.  So here is my quick card using some Tim Holtz stamps I bought months ago on a whim and have never used until now.  I hope you like?

Last week I also started on a card that I think I will actually end up adding to a layout in a scrapbook page.  I got the idea of it from pinterest, but as usual put my own spin on it.

Well, that's all for now.  I would love some feedback!

Fall Color Challenge

The current challenge at Paper Patch Crafts Facebook Group page is to create a fall card using yellow, burnt orange and sky blue.  I didn't think the colors would go together very well, but I am pretty happy with it now that it's done.  What do you think?  The challenge is still going on, why don't you join us?

Tag! You're It!

It's time again for a challenge from the Scrapalicious USA gang.  This time we are challenging everyone to create a tag.  Fun stuff, right?  Go on over to the Challenge Blog to find out the details.  Here is the tag I created using loads of items for sale over at the Scrapalicious USA store.
I added some machine stitching and a little paper distressing around the edges to give it that look I love.  I created the hydrangea using a Martha Stewart punch.  The butterflies were just cut out from scraps and I added gold stickles and platinum Liquid Pearls.  All links to the products used below:
