From Trash to Treasures

Holy Moly, I took me forever to complete the first challenge at Scraptacular Fall Fest Crop. The challenge is to add an unconventional item to your layout. My trash to treasure was found in my hubby's sanctuary (that would be his garage). It's a brass template.
The horse stamp set is called Wanted and the pretty flower paper is called Good Morning Sunshine.

Scrap and Stamp Halloween Challenge

Here is my layout that I did for the Scrap and Stamp Halloween Challenge.

The stamped pumpkin is from an old SU set called Spooks Galore. The name of the cool designer paper is Cast-a-Spell. You can find it in the current SU catalog on page 161.

Guess who made Top 5 for one of her layouts??? That would be little old me! Thank you Samantha for picking me as one of your top 5...I'm so excited! You can see my layout here.

SP Color Challenge

I just came across this great color challenge blog called Scrapmaster's Paradise and decided to give it a go.
At first, I was going to make a card but then decided that it would be fun to scrap this layout using Liz's sketch 36.

I just love her sketches. The retired designer paper that I used is called Parisian Summer. I plan to play next week and hopefully you will too!

LNS #33 Challenge

LNS #33 Challenge
This week the LNS Challenge was to make a fall scrapbook page. Since we can only use current products from the SU catalog, I decided to make my own version of a beautiful background paper that SU had out last fall from the Designer Paper pack called Autumn Vine.

I first had colored and stamped my image on whisper white. The leaf stamp that I use was from the Season of Friendship set. My marker colors were Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Sage Shadow and More Mustard.
I then doodled my stem and dots. It was an super easy background to recreate.
Card Stock: Whisper White, Really Rust, Sage Shadow and More Mustard.
Stamps: Season of Friendship
Ink: Whisper White, Really Rust, Sage Shadow and More Mustard.
Other: 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, Hemp Twine and Sizzix Naturally Serif Alphabet
