Lori Whitlock Design Team October Blog Hop



Hello friends - welcome to the October Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock's Design Team! You should have arrived here from  Linda's Blog

If you need to know the order of the hop - please refer back to Lori's blog.

Wow! Where has October gotten to? I can't believe the month is half way over!  I am always on the lookout for quick and easy holiday decor during this very busy time of year so when I saw Lori's darling Cute Spooks line at Snap Click Supply , I knew I had to whip this cute door hanger up for some Halloween decor. It took me no time at all to make this little beauty since all of the icons and titles were already done up for me! All I had to do was upload the files onto my Silhouette software and I had a fun home decor piece done in under an hour! Let me show you what I did-

I used these files to make my door hanger:
-Cute Spooks Collection from Snap Click Supply
-Googly eyes, ribbon, twine and buttons for embellishment

 I added some googly eyes to already cute witch and Frankenstein shapes for some added fun. I also added a creepy little spider button to the title as well.

 I cut 2 of the Trick or Treat titles, witches and Frankenstein shapes out and placed them on top of the flat shape .I pop dotted them up for some added dimension. I love using my Print and Cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo to make my own die cut shapes from digital designs - it is soo easy! And fun!
That's all there is to it! If you haven't gotten a chance to download one of Lori's darling digital files there are so many fun files to choose from! Today only (10/14/2014) - you can head over to Snap Click Supply and receive 30 % off her files - what a deal!

Hi There Friends -I am  here to show you this super fun mini album that I made using Doodlebug Design's Friendly Forest line. I am going to fill it  with photos and memories of all the things that I am thankful for. This will be great to put out over the holidays to look at.


 I used a beautiful teal plastic frame that I picked up at my local Michael's Store. I took the plastic center section out so the pages could flip easily. The pages are 3 1/4 x  5 and fit perfectly in this 4x6 size frame. I punched to holes in the tops of my pages and added 1 inch book rings to hang the pages on.


 Here are the inside pages. I loved using all sorts of different techniques on my pages. From pocket pages to little flaps that you can lift up - I love adding lots of fun variations to my mini albums.


 I made a fun flip up feature on this page using my papers and a piece of washi tape to hide the purple cardstock where you could add a photo or a journaling spot.




 On this one I used a doily that I cut in half and wrapped the edges around the paper to make a
neat pocket.



  These big leaf and acorn shapes from the Friendly Forest Craft kit were perfect for this page
One last pocket page with a colorful clothespin used as the pull feature.




Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this cute twist on a mini album. I love that it comes with its own stand! Such a fun feature! Have a wonderful day and Happy Creating!

Hello friends - welcome to the September Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock's Design Team! You should have arrived here from  Stacey's blog.

As soon as Labor Day ends and the kids head back to school, by brain automatically shifts into full on FALL mode! This is my FAVORITE time of year! From all the yummy food to football, cooler temps and cozy sweaters - there is no better time of year to me! My favorite local bakery has just started putting out this delicious pumpkin bread  and their cinnamon roll caramel popcorn and I decided to make a fun bread wrap and cute pumpkin gift box to give to one of my lucky neighbors for my projects this month. I can't wait to share this with them!

To create my projects I used the following files:
-5 labels ( used behind Fall is Here phrase and on Welcome Fall banner)
