Silly Girl by Dawn

If you didn't get enough of that awesome Cosmo Cricket double deck "Earth Love" and "The Boyfriend" here is a fantastic layout Dawn did with it.. she says "Wow! The more I use this paper the more I love it! I was unsure at first but pull the sheets out and mix and match, no matter how you put them together they go!!!"

Silly Girl:

She started with a piece of chocolate cardstock from the Kit of the Month, used that Double Deck, and embellished with a few things including Alpha Mishmash by Crate Paper, and a fold over tab from the 7gypsies Sticker Book Set.

Pull that cute little 7 gypsies tab and the layout folds down to reveal a bunch more info and some gorgeous photos!!!

Love It!!! -DeeDee

EP and Petaloo by Heather

Here are 2 layouts that owner Heather did!

Sammy's First Halloween:

Heather started with the Cardstock of the Month Kit, a great textured piece of Bazzil Cardstock, then she used the Black Soot distress ink pad by Tim Holtz around the edges for a fantastic Halloweeny look. From there she picked out a super cute photo of her now 5 year old son Sammy and pulled out her Happy Halloween collection pack by Echo Park. She used a handful of eyelets, some gorgeous black tulle and ran around the edges of the patterned paper with distress inks - VIOLA!!

Le Reve:

Heather just got back from a weekend in Vegas with her husband and another couple friend; and to remember the fun did this AMAZING layout! She started again with the Cardstock Kit, and Black Soot from the distress inks - Both a great base for a fantastic project. She then used some great souvenirs from the weekend and the gorgeous set of Ruffled Peonies from Petaloo. They do have a gold center, but she had some gigantic black bling laying around and it was perfect!

Have a good weekend! -DeeDee

Fall Layout by DeeDee

So I'm going to start off the Fall Theme Layout challenge on facebook!

I scraplifted this layout from a gal who posted on the Echo Park paper company's facebook and gave it a couple of my own twists:

I started with a piece of Bazzil Cardstock from the Cardstock kit of the month and used Distress Inks to ink the edge and crinkles of the paper. I picked one of my favorite photos of Chamos and I at the park playing in the leaves, and made a frame for it with the Fancy Pants 50 Piece paper pack which also made the leaves of the tree and the blue sky background. I cut the leaves using the Don Juan cricut cartridge and made the tree truck out of corrugated cardboard. I used the Art Blanche Tahoma letters for my title and adhered everything with the Zig glue pen and EK Success Permanent Adhesive roller.

=) Now let's see YOUR fall layouts!

Layout by Heather!

Here is a gorgeous layout by Heather. Enjoy!!

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co:

While Heather was @ Scrapfest she ate at Bubba Gump with the other girls - She started with a sheet of paper from the restaurant and picked a huge photo of her enjoying all those goodies. She cut out her title from Bazzil cardstock supplied by the Cardstock of the Month Kit, and adorned with a giant Petaloo Flower.

On both the back sheet and the letters Heather used Distress Ink by Tim Holtz, and then sprayed them with Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. If you haven't seen how Distress Ink reacts to water, you should definitely try it out!!! She also glimmer misted the petaloo flower.

She attached everything but the flower with EK Success Herma double sided tape, and used Glue Dots for the petaloo flower, perfect for the centers and no mess!

Hope you found some helpful info!!
