Cricut Cardz Challenge - Hootie Halloween

It's time for another Cricut Cardz Challenge!  This week the challenge is Hootie Halloween....make a Halloween card with an owl on it.  There are so many adorable owls I had a hard time deciding which cartridge to use.  I finally decided on
Hoot and Holler.

The owl is cut at 2.75" and the hat, from Happy Hauntings, is at 1.5" (I think).  The glitter paper on my owl and the plaid background paper are DCWV.  The print paper is from an old dictionary that I got at the thrift store.

Remeber, Cricut Cardz Challenge has moved to CardzTV.....click here to hop over there to see the rest of the design team's awesome projects.

Terrific Tuesday Challenge and the Digi Bistro


Happy Tuesday everyone!  I have two challenges for you today!   
The Scrappy Moms Stamps - Terrific Tuesday Challenge is Mini Monsters.
 The Digi Bistro - Add a Tag to your project!

Since I don't have Mini Monsters, I used this adorable little ghost from the Digi Bistro- Pick your Poison SVG set.



I re-purposed a goodie back that my kids got from a birthday party.  I added some MS Halloween paper and then cut my tag from The Digi Bistro -  Tag It set.  The sentiment is from the new Scrappy Moms Stamp set - Bewitched.  I mounted the little ghost on a action wobble and it really makes him pop off the tag!

We can't wait to see your fun projects....

A pocket full of Memories Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  Welcome!  Thanks so much to Jess from KinderStampo for including me in  the fun today!  You should have arrived here from Singrid's blog.  If you just stopped by for a visit, click here to start at the beginning.

Jess asked us to make a mini album with pockets in it.....sounds easy enough.  There are so many amazing mini albums on the web I had a hard time deciding what to try.   I found this simple tutorial from K Werner designs....I loved the fact that it only used one 12 x 12 sheet.  I was also inspired by this mini book that my DT sister Lowri made using the Echo Park - For the Record line.


All the paper elements are from Echo Park - For the Record.  I cut the label shapes from Elegant Edges.

The inside left has a pocket....I trimmed down a skinny notepad from Paper Trey Ink to fit.  The measuring tape border on the edge creates a small pocket to slip in a note or business card. 


The left side has two pockets....I cut tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and adhered some more of the little journal cards from the For the Record kit. 


The last two pages I just added some mats for some pictures and the last pocket has a third mat.


I think it turned out so pretty....was a fun way to help myself stay organized and have a few pictures of my kids on hand.  I always  have to search my phone for a picture when someone asks to see one.
This would also make a great holiday planner if you just changed up the paper. 

I have some BLOG CANDY! 
Make sure you are a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a Maya Road Chipboard Coaster album and Alpha set.

Be sure to leave a comment on every blog for a chance to win some prizess from:

 a Helmar Zap Dot Gift Set
 A Lindy's Stamp Gang Gift Set
