I love to share what I have learned in the art of scrapbooking and paper crafts.

Halloween Inspiration

What happened to September?  With all the hustle and bustle of the beginning of the school year it seems that September just flies by.  I absolutely love the Fall and Halloween is a fun time for the kids.  They just love getting all dressed up.  I still have to get last year's pictures scrapped and now that I have the new Artbooking cartridge, I can hardly wait to get my pages done.  Here is a video about making those Halloween pages.  I am still in awe with all you can do with this wonderful cartridge.  Enjoy!

I Just Love the Artbooking Cartridge

Last weekend I had the opportunity to go to a crop where I could just well, crop.  It was a wonderful Friday evening and Saturday where I could just sit and create.  I brought my brand new Artbook Cartridge with me so that I could share it and I have to tell you that I absolutely love love love this new Cricut cartridge that Close To My Heart has designed.  One of the ladies said that she loved the fact that the words are already welded together so you don't have to do anything.  I love the fact that with just one button you can design a whole two-page layout!  Here is another video that shows you some of the wonderful things you can do with this cartridge!

I'm sure you can't wait to try this cartridge out!  I can think of a few cute pictures that I'll be scrapping using the ideas from this video.

Ahhh What Beauty

One of the things I noticed these past couple of months are the beautiful sunsets.  I don't get to see the sun rise where I live as my view is obstructed by trees, but the sunsets have been spectacular.  I am amazed every time I see the beauty all around me.  Soon I'll be taking out my camera to take pictures of the foliage.  It's almost peak season here. But for now, here are a few pictures I took during the months of August and September.

Every time I see these beautiful works of art I am reminded of how our God enjoys beauty and shares it with us.

I have been doing more than taking pictures though.   I have actually been planning my classes for the Singing Hills retreat, Memories that Matter.  Here are the cards I came up with to make with the ladies there this year.

I had a lot of fun creating them.  I hope the ladies enjoy making them as much as I did.  

Tomorrow, I'm off to scrap at my friend's crop to catch up a little and to create my layout and finish my mini scrapbook for Singing Hills.  I can't wait!
