For my project, I wanted to share the cover page of my Project Life album! I recently began this project and have been having so much fun with it. I love the concept of scrapping everyday photos and recording our everyday lives.

I wanted the cover page of my album to reflect my crafting style and I wanted to include some of my favorite die cuts and embellishments...

Of course I had to include this sentiment from K. Andrew's Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. This is one of my all time favorite sentiments and it worked so perfectly on this project!

Didja know?
Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help! K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

Getting Cricky Design Team Post - "All the Way to the Moon" Halloween 12x12 Single Layout

Today, at Getting Cricky's Simply Sunday Challenge, our challenge is "Happy Fall, Ya'll!" Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to craft for, so I decided to create a cute and cheeky Halloween layout. 

This is a standard 12"x12" Single Layout featuring one 2.5"x3.5" photo mat and one 4"x6" photo mat. 

The background frame was cut from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge at 11.0" and the title was cut from the Happy Hauntings cartridge at 2".

The witch was cut from the A Child's Year Cartridge at 3.2" and the clouds were cut from the Mickey and Friends cartridge at 1" and 1.5". The moon was created by cutting a standard circle at 3" and inking it with black ink. 

The haunted mansion was cut from the Happy Hauntings cartridge at 7". The grassy hills were cut from the same cartridge at 3" and 3.5"

The sentiment comes from the K Andrew's It's Valentines Stamp Set and is one of my all time favorite sentiments! The banner was hand cut. Finally, all of the pieces were inked with black ink and I used a white gel pen to add some doodle stitching. 

 Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Happy Hauntings, A Child's Year, Mickey and Friends and Elegant Edges
