Damask Divas Pathfinding Blog Hop


Happy October and Welcome to my blog!

If you came from the wonderful blog of Brenda Zimmerman Keepable Paper Creations, then you are in the right place. If you have jumped and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.


So now onto my projects using Pathfinding paper pack!

I used the Workshop on the Go Pathfinding Cardmaking Kit (#G1083). I only made one of the three card designs.


I absolutely love this card kit! I used Chocolate (Z2111), Desert Sand (Z2118), Goldrush (Z2123) Inks. I wanted to try something different, so I decorated the envelope! Love how all of this has turned out.


Up close of the envelope!


Another item I made is the Fry Box from Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z3017)! I cut this out at 9" (p.27) using the first sheet of paper from Pathfinding paper pack (X7186B). I used glue dots to adhere this cute box together. Wrapped some Olive baker's twine around it before I adhered the acorn die cut shape using the 3D foam tape. Cut the acron out of Colonial White cardstock at 3 1/4" on pg.36 from Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I sponged the edges with Chocolate and used Lagoon (Z2195) for the sentiment. I also tucked Brach's Autumn Mix candy in a treat bag inside!

This is my favorite time of the year with my favorite candy, which is Brach's Pumpkins! I love fall. Hope you liked all my projects. Just wanted something simple.

Damask Divas: Scaredy Cat Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas Scaredy Cat Blog Hop!





If you just came from the wonderful blog of Brenda Zimmerman Keepable Paper Creations, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants!
Hello and Welcome to my blog. This month we are featuring the Scaredy Cat paper pack. For my project I did a simple 2 page Halloween layout! I just love these papers. 





For this Halloween layout I decided I wanted to use Artbooking Cricut Cartridge! I cut everything out  at 11" (what booklet says to use for layout) from my Cricut expression. All cuts come from p.71 except the cat is from p.70.


Right side layout using Thistle cardstock with using a sheet from Scaredy Cat paper pack for the overlay. I used the first sheet pictured on p.39 of Idea Book. Frame is cut from thistle cardstock, house cut from black cardstock backed with scraps of white daisy and other scraps from this paper & the cat is cut from desert sand cardstock. I glued everything down with the bonding memories glue pen except the photo mats and I just used removable adhesive so I can be able to add my pictures at a later date.


Left side layout is from the Scaredy Cat paper pack, first sheet pictured on p.39 of Idea Book. All was adhered with the bonding memories glue pen except the photo mats again using a removable adhesive. Boo, fence border and the small 4x4 photo mat is cut from black cardstock. I choose the darkest purple form the Purple Glitter paper pack. I snipped off the bottom web and adhered it to the purple photo frame on the left side layout. I picked these two cute pumpkings from the Scaredy Cat complements!

  • Artbooking #Z1906
