More Mojo Monday!

Mojo Monday…….We did three fun cards this month, well four if you count the two different purse styles individually. The Purse cards were inspired by Janice my SU Upline. She designed and created ‘Thank You’ cards for a friend who is a regional Miche representative. I just thought they were very clever and my way of adding a little “Bling” to Mojo. The purse is SU Mocha Morning DSP and, with the felt texture, I think they look and feel like fabric.

Making the Happy Halloween card was fun. We embossed the Haunted Forest stamp from the mini catty. We colored in the trees and pumpkin and then sponged inside the trees for a spooky glow of the moon. I love the color combo of Cajun Craze and Early Espresso because Halloween does not have to be just Black and Orange.

The last card was a simple fall card using the French Foliage stamp set. The background was done by inking and stamping a clear block with Crumb Cake and then going back with a Soft Suede for the leaf. KISS, Keep It Simple Stamping!

October Pages

Wow, it’s spooky how quickly this month has flown by, like witches in the sky. Here are two pages from this month’s Saturday Scrappers group. They can be used together or work great on their own. Yes, the ghosts in the tree are the Owl punch upside down and I used the bat punch flying in the moon. That punch is currently on sale at SU clearance rack and I am sure it won’t last long.  Oh yeah, that is the 2 foot pumpkin with feet holding up the pages. I know, still no name for him?

One of the other pages we completed was a Fall set. I used the new Spice Cake DSP in the SU Holiday Mini. That paper is so beautiful.

So, I guess you are wondering why we did Halloween and Fall pages prior to the actual events? Yes, with scrapbooking you usually complete the pages after the event, but next month’s group is making the Advent Calendar using the Peekaboo Frames die and the 25 & Counting stamp set.  Don’t forget to check back and see the finished project!
