Damask Divas: Scaredy Cat Blog Hop

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!

New Catalog!

Well, my new catalogs arrived early!!! I squealed with delight when they arrived but I haven't even sat down to really look at one. So sad. But on another positive note, I took one to my local Staples and had it spiral bound. Love how it looks!


So glad that I had this done.

Damask Divas Blog Hop: Skylark

Welcome to the Damask Divas Skylark Blog Hop!


If you just came from the wonderful blog of Stephanie Davis  The Gypsy Chic, then 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 Skylark paper pack. I was at a loss for how I should decorate my box, so I turned to Pinterest and found some ideas that I like. My project was inspired from others. For my project I wanted something to hold my PML Skylark cards. Here is my project!

I first inked the edges with Lagoon ink. I inked all the edges; front, back, sides and some inside. I mated all my pieces with Desert Sand cardstock. All my skylark pieces is some of the back and front of the same piece of paper.

A peak into the inside. My inked inside edges. As you can see the bird is only attached to the lid. I hand cut it from the same piece of paper and along with the tag on front of box. I used pop dots to attach to lid but foam tape would work also.

On the front I used the tag I cut out from same sheet of paper and added a pink Flamingo Dot to it. I then used Liquid Glass to adhere my lagoon zipper lace trim (love this trim)! I may add some stamped letters later on but still not sure on that.


And here is the back side. Love this bird on the paper. It makes the back pretty also! Well, I hope you enjoyed my project and now it's time to hop onto the next blog on the list. The next wonderful blog on the list is Lilian Yeh The Leaf Studio !

Hope you had a great time on our hop and checking out all the creations using the Skylark paper pack! If you get lost, just hop on over to the Damask Divas Blog for the full list.
