Echo Park Halloween Town Boo Card

Hi there everyone! It's Tya and I am here on the blog today sharing with you a card I made using the adorable Halloween Town collection! I love this line so much!
This card was a lot of fun to put together!This card measures 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 and I used a piece of white cardstock to make the card base. I then layered a piece of the Bewitching Pumpkins plaid paper for the background. I love when Halloween collections include the color purple - I loved the purple chevron pattern on the B side of the Journaling Cards paper. I trimmed the 2 edges of that paper into a banner shape and added it to the card with some foam tape.


I cut the letters out on my Silhouette Cameo in blue, orange and green cardstock. I tied a piece of white crochet thread to the letter B. I also added an "Eek" sticker and punched out some stars with paper punch and added them to the letters. I love the cute ghostie peeking out from behind the letter don't you? I added some enamel dots in the bottom right corner as well.

In the bottom left corner I added another embellishment cluster here. I added a banner sticker, a pumpkin sticker and a few more hand punched starts. Enamel dots were also added. I also cut a zig zag border from a Silhouette cut file out of black cardstock and layered that under the purple chevron paper for some added texture.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope I have inspired you to pick up this darling collection and make lots of cute Halloween themed cards of your own! Happy crafting!

Supplies used:
-Halloween Town Collection Kit
-White cardstock
-Black Cardstock
-White crochet thread

Hello Fall Wreath - Carta Bella

 Hi everyone - it's Tya here on the blog today sharing with you a fall inspired project using the beautiful "Hello Fall" line from Carta Bella. Oh boy- if you love fall, this line is for you! The color palate is gorgeous and I simply am enamored with all of the fall shapes and icons and sayings of this collection! I made a fall wreath for my project and it was so much fun! I want to make more!

To make this wreath, I started with a 10 inch foam wreath form. I then cut several different shapes and sizes of leaves from cut files using my Silhouette. It was so fun to cut all the leaves from all the different pattern papers of this collection. It was so hard to choose which ones to use, they are all so beautiful. I then started hot gluing the leaves to the wreath form until it was entirely covered. The leaves vary in sizes, the largest being about 5 inches and the smaller leaves are about 2 inches.

 To add a little personalized touch to my wreath, I found a photo from our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and changed it to a pretty sepia tone. I made an embellishment cluster around the photo using some stickers from the Element Sticker sheet, some Ephemera and a decorative paper bow. Here are a few close ups of the cluster.




 I added some raffia behind the paper bow. The bow also has a pretty pearl brad in the center for some bling.

Up in the top corner I added another embellishment cluster and a fun tag shape from the Frames and Tags Ephemera and tied a raffia bow on top with another pearl brad from the Decorative Brads. I hot glued both of the embellishment clusters to the top of the leaves and I did add some foam tape and pops dots between the layers for some dimension.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. It is so fun to be able to use my paper crafting products to make home decor projects for my home. I can't wait to display this! Hopefully I have inspired you to make one for your home as well. Happy Crafting everyone!

Doodlebug Design Booville Collection: Card Trio

Hey there Doodlebug friends! It's Tya and I am up on the blog today sharing a fun and festive card trio featuring the adorable Booville collection! I have been on such a card making kick lately and I had such a fun time making these! Here are some close ups of each card:
This first card was so fun to make - I kind of am obsessed with doilies on my cards and this swimming pool doily was the perfect touch to this card. I love the little trick or treaters. They are stickers from the Icon Sticker Sheet. The sentiment is from the This and That sticker sheet and I added some glitter sprinkles and some candy corn shaped sprinkles as well.


This next card uses one of the Create a Card bases for the foundation of the card. I love the pops of pink in this collection! I just had to feature it! The double decker bus is from the Odds and Ends and I just loved the whimsical feel of it. I added a moon Cute Clip on the top edge. To finish off the card I places a couple of matte sprinkles on the headlights of the bus.


The last card is a fun one. I love making little scenes on cards and the Odds and Ends has some adorable pieces in it that made this super easy. The haunted house is so adorable and I love the cute little black kitty. He is from the Icon Sticker Sheet. The sentiment strips on the Pick a Pumpkin paper are perfect for card making- so I added the Happy Halloween one to the bottom edge. The card is finished off with some star stickers and two pink glitter sprinkles.


I hope I have inspired you to make a few of these fun cards of your own. Anyone would just love to receive this cuties! Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Digital Scrapbook Inspiration - Sparkle and Shine

Hello blog friends! I am up on my little ol' blog today sharing with you a digital scrapbooking layout! I really love using scrapbooking products from companies that have physical products as well as digital products. Earlier this week Simple Stories release their "Beautiful" digital line and I just knew I had to create a layout with it asap! I decided to use a photo of my sweet 20 year old daughter who is the epitome of "Beautiful" to me - so this layout is dedicated to her.
 I LOVE using sketches as jumping off points for my layouts and I really loved the layout of the August 15th sketch over on Stuck?! Sketches. Here is the sketch I used as inspiration:

Sketches are NOT just for paper scrapbooking! I turn to Laura's Sketches time and time again when I am looking for how to start a page. So helpful and her sketches are always adorable and really are my style which makes it easy to find a sketch to use. If you haven't stopped by the Stuck?! Sketches site - you should!!

Back to School Supply Caddy

Hi there - it's Tya and I am up on the blog today sharing with you all my Back to School project. I have to admit - I kind of am obsessed with all the back to school products from the pencils, to the crayons to the markers and notebooks - I love it all! But- what I don't love are those boring plastic pencil boxes that hide all of the goodies. So I decided to make a fun desk organizer using my

I used a Desk Organizer cut file designed by Lori Whitlock and cut out the base from Kraft cardstock. I then used a piece of  This Way Men pattern paper from the Toy Box collection from Carta Bella. I assembled my box with some sticky strip tape to make sure that it stays nice and sturdy. I also added a plaid sticker strip to the front of the box. The sticker is found on the Element Sticker.

 To decorate the box front, I used a few different Echo Park cut files that are in the Silhouette shop. To make the label, I cut out a label from some blue solid paper. I utilized the Print and Cut feature on the Silhouette to make the "School Supplies" title. I added the title to the blue label and then added pop dots to the back of the blue label and added the label to the box.


 I added some fun stickers from the Element Stickers to the label with pop dots and and also added an enamel star and some enamel dots to complete the decorations.

On the top section of the box, I added a piece of blue twine  and glued the ends to the sides of the box. I then added some of the chipboard banner pieces from the Chipboard Shapes to the top of the twine. 

Then fill up the organizer with any of your favorite school supplies! No boring plastic boxes here! I hope I have inspired you to make of of these cute boxes for your little students! Happy crafting everyone!

Supplies used:
-This Way Men paper
-Toy Box Element Sticker Sheet
-Toy Box Chipboard
