School House Mini-album

Our challenge theme is Anything Goes and I decided to use the free file from The Creative Pointe that can be found her

School House

For the Anything Goes challenge for October 20th, I used the School House free cutfile found here and created a School-House mini-album.  I cut the school house out on poster board for front and back cover and a couple inside pages to strengthen the album.

On the front cover I placed photos of granddaughter's first day of school for 2014-15 in ruler frames, and placed where the windows would be in the file.  Apple with First of Day school sentiment and a notebook, and yellow ruller as border for embellishments

Next two photos show what the pages will hopefully look like when I complete them...

I will be adding photos hopefully on each page as the 2nd one shows here.  Located a volleyball  and net clipart with a google search, print and cut with the Silhouette Cameo; and the journal card downloaded from Katie Pertiet where she is offering 50 Journal cards free. 
Here is the back cover:

The mini-album will be bound with a ring on the corner of the school house.  Paper from a personal stash of paper pads I have.
Thank you for stopping by to visit with me; and head on over to Creative Cutting Challenges for more inspiration by the Design Team; and join us in the Anything Goes Challenge

Halloween Card Topper

Mid October already - time is flying by too fast.  I am sharing this card with you all today.... for A Girl Who Crafts...

Supplies used:
Using Adobe Photoshop Elements I created the background, using a mask found at Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking. I printed and cut out with my Silhouette Studio DE software.  I colored Bella with markers and adhere with foam tape to the side of  card, applying leaves at her feet.  Happy Halloween stamped, using the Teeny Tiny Words stamp set from Stampin! Up.

Thank you for stopping to visit with me and happy crafting to all.

Challenge #32 Shaker Card

First here is the video tutorial by Prairie Paper & Ink (AmyR) of a Shaker Card

And here is my Shaker Card....

 This is the top/front of the Shaker Card, using a cut file from my Silhouette Studio DE Library I cut out the scalloped-window frame, and nine pieces of poster board pieces for the inside of the frame plus a clear plastic in the shape of the scalloped frame.  I print and cut the sentiment square piece and applied to the back of the framed poster board pieces.

The sequins found in the jewelry crafting department at local Wal-mart which was put inside of window.  All this I used Score-tape for adhering to each other plus to the card base.  Since I felt it was looking blah, I punched a scalloped edge, trimmed to correct size, and applied a ribbon for border and used two gemstones/beads for the corner.

This is the inside of the card, which as you can see is a birthday card for my soon-to-be 14 year old granddaughter.  I've been working on her 12x12 scrapbook and found the baby picture of her about 11 months old in my stash of photos and decided to create a mini-layout with baby picture and present day of 14 year old.  I created this mini-layout using my Adobe Photoshop Elements, printed out on photo paper and cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.  Layered it on her favorite colored mats and this is her birthday card, on it's way to Texas.

Thank you for stopping to visit with me, and take a moment and head over to Scrapbook Blessings Club for more inspiration, joining in the challenge(s) and apply for a position on the DT call.  Happy crafting to all
