I am happy to be hosting the challenge over at Heart 2 Heart this week! The theme for the challenge is CHANGE. That could mean changes in the seasons, changes in our lives, or changes in how our children grow each year. It could also be as simple as the change from a pumpkin to a jack-o-lantern! My project documents two changes–the transformation of a plain foam pumpkin to Halloween décor and the changes in my grandson since I last saw him in May.
I took quite a few pictures of our crafting sessions–too many to nicely fit on a one page layout. So I decided to try out the new CTMH Pocket Plus Memory Protectors. You simply slip your pictures into the sleeves, then add them to your albums. Easy as pumpkin pie! In this layout I was able to add four more photos and still have a nice, clean and simple page.
I used paper from the collection along with the coordinating black glitter Complements. The embellishments and title block were cut from various Close To My Heart cartridges.
Please stop over to Heart 2 Heart to see the other design team projects all about CHANGES. Then link up your own artwork so we can all enjoy!
Happy Halloween! Laurie
The theme this week at Bitten by the Bug 2 is to use a CUTE LITTLE MONSTER Cricut cut on a project. Well, I think these cute little monsters from Bump in the Night really fit the bill! Is there a special young person out there who would like this adorable box card for their birthday?
I used the new Jeepers Creepers paper collection and coordinating cardstock colors (Pansy, Willow, Tangerine and Lagoon) from Close To My Heart to make this box card. The stamped sentiments are from the Monstrous Halloween stamp set, which also includes birthday messages! The box card will fold flat to fit into an envelope and also stand up for display.
Please stop by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog to see the other design team projects. You will be sure to find some inspiration to use cute little monsters on your own artwork! Then link up your projects for everyone to enjoy!
Thanks very much for stopping by! Be awesome today! Laurie
