My Little Hoot Owl

 More Halloween pictures today.  These are pictures of Eva's first Halloween.  She had the cutest costume.
I used Flip Flaps on this page.  See how you can cover the bottom picture with another?  You can cover up journaling that you would rather not be seen by everyone too.  This is one way to add more pictures to a page without adding too much bulk.

Happy Scrapping!

Frightfully Cute

Isn't that just the sweetest smile.  Makes ME smile when I look at these.  Eva is 2 1/2 now, but it seems just yesterday I was sitting her by these pumpkins.  I used the Scaredy Cat Paper Pack as well as the
Halloween Greetings stamp set for that cute little witch and words.  There's also a sprinkling of Black Stars from the Scaredy Cat Assortment.  Don't miss out on moments like these!  Take those pictures!!

What a Hoot!

I couldn't wait to use my own What a Hoot stamp set.   
I used the Scaredy Cat Paper Pack to create my card.  The colors in this pack are Black, Colonial White, Pear, Slate, Sunset and Thistle (a new color!)  I set my owl on a black card and added a strip of Gold Shimmer Trim too.  The owl's mask and the word "owloween" are colored in with the NEW ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I used Lavender.
Hope you can take time to create something today!

A Picture My Life Two Page Layout

I'm so excited to have these available to create pages with.  The cards are so fast and easy to use.  Here I have used Babycakes to show off Jack when he was a newborn.  Everything goes together in a flash.  
Each Picture My Life Program comes with 44-4x6 cards, 78- 3x4 cards, 1 12x12 cover sheet and 10- 12x12 Memory Protectors.  Think of all of the layouts you can make with these!  And they can also be added to regular scrapbook pages, or to cards and you can even make great mini albums with them.
Here is an example of some more cards that come with the set.  I hope you will try the Picture My Life Program out.  Close To My Heart now has 13 different themes available.

Great Job!

This is one of the stamp sets I received at Convention held at the Disneyland Hotel.  And I used one of our new markers to color in part of the shooting stars.  The markers are ShinHan Touch Twin brand.  They are alcohol based with a broad and fine tip.  There are 24 colors to choose from and I just love them.  I used the star paper from Chalk It Up, along with a puffy heart from the Chalk It Up Assortment and a new Black Star.  Contact me for more information.

Chalk it Up with Eva

 I was looking at pictures the other day and happened upon these four.  I'm so glad scrapbooking allows me to go back and scrap pictures that have been skipped.  This layout is the left side of a two pager.
The paper pack is Chalk It Up (X7184B).  This paper is so trendy.  It has a "chalk look" paper, arrows, triangles, stars and words.  The colors are Black, Champagne, Flaxen (new color) Lagoon, Sorbet and White Daisy.
I also used a new stamp set here.  Great Job (C1588) is a set of 8 shooting stars, the words "Great Job" and circles.  Can you see the heart embellishments?  They are from the Chalk It Up Assortment (Z3009) a sheet of puffy stickers that can be used anywhere!  My Cricut came in handy to cut out the numbers and title.  Check out the new catalog to see all of the stamp sets and other items with Chalk It Up!

Have a great week!
