Christmas Album

Check out this adorable Christmas themed album.  This could be an easy way to get some of these wonderful Christmas photos in an album. The album could be a gift for a family member or it can become a treasured piece you display every holiday.  I designed this album as a kit for a friend who is hosting the workshop at her house. If you cannot attend or would like to purchase the kit so  you can do on your own is an option too. 

To sign up for this workshop Cat must receive your order and payment by October 30th at 6 pm.  This way all the product can be ordered and you can take advantage of the October Stamp of the month, which is a Christmas stamp set.

This workshop is using the My Creations  Bookmark Album.   The album is roughly 4” x 8” with 6 different pages plus the front and back cover.  The album is made of chipboard and has a magnetic closure and 2 binder rings. We will be adding a lot of embellishments to this album so you will learn how to modify this album to accommodate that.

Basic Kit:

The kit will include the Bookmark Album, the larger binder rings, Cranberry bakers twine, brads, ribbon to embellish.  The paper to be include will be half of the Pear & Partridge paper pack which will include one of each of the pattern papers shown here and one sheet of Olive, Cranberry, Cashmere, and Desert Sand cardstock.  You will also receive the velvet rub-ons and directions for $27 (this includes tax and shipping)

 

 

There are also several add ons which were used including Just Bloom Flowers and Buttons.  If you wish to put the kit together on your one you will need to purchase a few additional items.  All of the following stamp sets were used in creating the album:

– Merry and Bright

– The stamp set from the WOTG Pear and Partridge scrapbook kit

– October’s Stamp of the Month

– Inks: Desert Sands, Cranberry, Black and Olive

If you are interested in purchasing the kit please contact me as I do have some options to offer you the best pricing. The kit will come with colored photos and instructions on how to assemble.

 

October Blog Hop

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop!  

This month we are featuring artwork from the Moonlight paper pack.

If you have come here from Jen Patrick, then you are on the right path.  Your next stop will be Stephanie Feist.

I am a scrapbooker and love Halloween so this months artwork was so much fun for me to create. 

For this layout I used created my own stencil which I cut out with my Silhouette. I chose goldrush and smokey plum inks and used the spray pens to create the bat in the moon effect. I then used the Moonlight paper, goldrush,, smokey plum and slate card stock. I used the swirl stamp from the Moonlight scrapbook WOTG to stamp the smokey plum cardstock on the right.

I got so carried away with this Moonlight paper that I created a second halloween layout. This one I designed as a page kit that I will be selling.

For this layout I used slate, black and goldrush card stock along with the Moonlight paper.  I used the mummy stamp from the Moonlight WOTG and the vampire and skeleton stamps are from the Creapy Creatures stamp set. I used a blender pen with my inks to give them a little color.

Now hop on over to Stephanie Feist for your next stop.

Halloween Banner

I absolutely love this time of year!! I love fall and winter (yes I do like the cold and snow).  The holidays are always so fun and festive.  One of my favorite holidays it Halloween.  I aways decorate the first of October and we generally have a pumpkin carving party just before Halloween. This year I have been able to crate a couple decorations. I was very excited how my banner turned out. I used the CTMH banner. Moonlight paper pack, smokey plum, gold rush, and slate card stock.

On the Moonlight paper I added a little sparkle by applying lavender Stickles to the purple swirls. On the smokey plum, I stamped the banner with the ghost from the Creepy Creature stamp set.  I then used a blender pen and the colonial ink to make them pop. I then used orange Stickles to the pumpkin.  On the slate banners I used a bat stamp that I had.  I then stamped some on smokey plum cardstock and cut them out and used pop dots to make them stand out. I used the gunmetal Stickles to give them a little bling. And for the ends I used a web stencil I had and went over it with the gunmetal Stickles.  The spider I cut out using my Silhouette and added some crystals for the eyes.
