Feel the Colors

October is my favorite month.  Not only is it my birthday month, but the colors here in New Hampshire are incredible.  Today we are having quite a bit of rain and wind, so those beautiful leaves will be scattered on the ground.  

When I went to the CTMH event weekend, we made a six page layout for Halloween.  I can't wait to get those pictures of my grandchildren so that I can use these adorable pages designed by Lynn Como.  It is so much fun to create pages that are so incredibly cute.

It was so much fun to see these pages come together.  With a few stamps, a few Cricut cuts, the Scaredy Cat paper pack and the Scaredy Cat Compliments, and a few extra pages of cardstock, you can make these adorable pages.  If you are interested in creating these pages, just place a $30 order on my website, and I will email you the files to complete these pages.

I went out one day last week and took pictures of some of the beauty around my own home.  I will share those with you soon.  If you are in a part of the country that escaped this wind and rain and still have beautiful colors on your trees, get out an enjoy the beauty around you.  Feel the colors......

Chalk It Up 

It's so beautiful here in New Hampshire at this time of the year.  I can't believe we are almost halfway through October.  I have a couple of crops that I am attending so I am looking forward to creating more layouts and scrapping more of my pictures.  

As soon as I got my first box with the goodies from the new catalog, I couldn't wait to start creating.  I love the Chalk It Up paper pack as you don't have to use it solely for school pictures, although I did when I created my layouts.  Here is what I chose to do with the beautiful paper and a few extra pieces of cardstock. I'm currently working on Pathfinding (Fall Theme) and when I'm done with that I'll have to start working on Confetti Wishes (Birthday Theme).  So many paper packs, so little time.

Here is what I created using the Chalk It Up Workshop on the Go.  It was perfect for my granddaughter's apple picking field trip.

I love the colors in this paper pack.  They are so bright and cheery.  I should go out and get some pictures of the beauty around me so that I can scrap those using my Pathfinding paper pack.  Enjoy the colors!

As Promised!

So today was spent figuring out my new Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge.  It wasn't that there was anything difficult about the cartridge, I was just having an off day and couldn't seem to do anything right. My first card didn't make the cut so I decided to do some simple cards and at least work on something.  Some days are just like that.....

Here are the three cards that I created.  I love how there are so many different occasions represented in the cards and I love that each occasion has title cards that you can either use in a layout or even attach to the front of a card. The wonderful thing about Close To My Heart Cricut cartridges is that you can do so many things with them.  There are 700 items in each and every cartridge.  That means with just the four Cricut cartridges from Close To My Heart I have 2800 images!  

Here are the cards I made today.  Please don't judge.  I have been struggling physically with a nasty cold and just wanted to curl up on the sofa all day, but those CTMH boxes were calling my name and once I opened them up and got that Cricut cartridge out, I could not wait!  

They are so simple to make.  All you need  for one card is two pieces of cardstock and a little bit of glue. I saved the cutouts from the butterfly cards to use on other cards or layouts. All three cards are 5 x 7.  I'm so glad I decided to work with this  new cartridge.  Next I want to make some cards for my scrapbooking.
