Our Layout this week features "The Lights of Christmas". Do you go look at lights with your family? A Family trip to Warm Beach or Zoo Lights. Maybe like us a trip around neighborhoods with hot chocolate and popcorn and a carload to look at the lights every Christmas Eve. So join me Friday to put this page together or take with you for those great lights photo's.

Fall Fun Sketch Layout!

Come into the store and Lila will teach you how to make a similar layout out of any papers you choose! When you buy the paper she will give you the sketch to keep. Hold onto those sketches, I use my sketch book all the time (if you see me, Melanie, at a crop just ask to see it, I won't leave home without it!).

Do you love this layout just the way it is? Lila will have a couple kits of these papers, embellishments and the die cut "Fall Fun" title in just a few days.
Here is my version of the layout with pictures of our day at the pumpkin farm:

Hello from the Keys

Hello Elisa and everyone out there, yes I am having a great time and getting some sun and relaxation. I will be refueled and ready to get back to opening new boxes of stuff and designing and of course as everyonr knows, NEVER SITTING DOWN! Well and don't worry I have taken time to eat also, the food is soooo good here. I will show all the pics when I get back I took lots, but will only scrap the ones that tell my story, or I will never get done. Take care and oh yes Elisa, hope you find something good to give away, ha ha. Miss you all and see you soon. Lila

A few of my favorite things...

While Lila is on vacation hopefully enjoying the sun and finally receiving their luggage 2 days into their trip I am taking it upon myself to hijack the blog.

Today I bring you a few of my favorite things...

Dream Street Double Sided Pattern Papers

Aren't they just adorable?? I just adore them and think they will be great for any fall pages or cards you may have on your list of things to scrap.

Next up is the amazing new Petaloo flowers that were delivered to the shop late last week. I know a few of you grabbed up a couple but there are lots to choose from. Here are 2 of my favorite packages.

The color are just gorgeous and will complete any project you have going on. There are several different color combo's to choose from so next time your in be sure to check them out.

Last up are these amazing stamps from Inkadinkado.... I just love the leaf shapes etc of them and the price is right at under $2. They won't last long but they aren't the only fall stamp set to choose from.

If your not sure about the Inkadinkadoo stamps... I will be the first one to tell you that they stamp amazing. They pick up color from your ink pads without any running and the image is a nice crisp image. If you have been taking my card classes then you already know how amazing Inkadinkadoo stamps are because that is what you have been using...

Speaking of my card classes. There is a Christmas Card Class on Monday Oct 26th. If you want to sign up for the class call the store and leave a msg with your name so we can add you to the list or come on by the store on Monday and see the cards in person and sign up. Here are 3 of the 5 cards you will be making plus you will make something else to go along with them.

Keep an eye on the blog and I may sneak ya a photo sometime soon. hehe

I'll be back tomorrow with some cards, step by step tutorial and maybe a sneak peek of a few more things.

Hi everyone... Lila is out of town so I am taking it upon myself to hijack the blog and post a few of my favorite things that I found walking through the store... hehe Be sure to stop in the store and say hi to Katri...

First up is the Bo Bunny pattern papers from the Delilah collection. These are amazing fall papers that will bring fall colors to any layout, cards or projects that you have going on.

Next I bring you a sampling of Bo Bunny flowers. Lila has several different sets in the store and the colors of the flowers are truly wonderful and these will add that little extra something to any project.

Last but not least is the amazing Bazzill swiss dot cardstock that is sure to make your project pop. Lila has this in white, blue and black.
Here is a card I made with the Bazzill white swiss dot cardstock. You can find everything in on this card in Lila's except for the ribbon but Lila has an amazing ribbon wall where you will find others like it or close to it.
