I have been hanging on to that apple cut cardstock for quite a while now, so it felt good to actually use it, instead of just looking at it!
The card is for a halloween challenge on another site. In my feeble attempt to become a more frugal scrapper, I made this card entirely out of scraps.
Halloween is my favorite holiday, so be on the lookout for some more spooky creations in the coming weeks!

My second project was to make a couple of cards for a student to give his teacher. The first card features a hopscotch die cut from the Locker Talk cartridge. The second card uses the apple stamp and best teacher stamp from the Teacher's Pet line:

I wanted this page to convey all the fun and excitement of Mardi Gras. I chose the lilac, bumblebee, and limeade paper packs because the traditional colors of Mardi Gras are purple, yellow, and green. After cutting my papers in various sized strips and adhering them to my page, I used the Joys of the Season cartridge to make my beads along the top. I believe those beads were designed to be a Christmas tree garland, but they worked perfectly for Mardi Gras beads! The title letters were cut using the Lyrical Letters cartridge and were mounted on the frame shape from the Storybook cartridge. I used the Fleur de Lis from the Accent Essentials cartridge as my accents because the Fleur de Lis is a traditional symbol of Louisiana, and especially New Orleans. All of my elements were mounted on foam tape for dimension, and trimmed with lilac jewels for an extra touch of bling and fun.
It's Your Day Card:
The Lyrical Letters cartridge has several great images to use for cards. I chose this pear image because it makes me happy! I cut it at 6” real dial size and covered it with the glitter for some fabulous sparkle. The sentiment is also from the Lyrical Letters cartridge and was cut at 2”. I used a trio of eyelets for an added decorative element along the bottom. This cheery card would brighten anyone’s day!
The Lyrical Letters is such a great cartridge to have because it has many greetings on it, in addition to the very versatile font. I chose the “Happy Halloween” greeting with the accompanying spider to make this card spooktacular! I created the pumpkin shaped card by using the pumpkin from the PDDU cartridge and welding it stem-to-stem using Design Studio. Then I cut a slightly smaller pumpkin out of my patterned paper and adhered it to my card. The web is from the Wild Card cartridge. I cut one web at 5”, and then cut it apart to use at two different spots on my card. The green ribbon was used to simulate the vine of the pumpkin. I used a tiny square of mounting tape under the spider to make it seem like he was really suspended on the web, and the jewels are there just because they are so much fun!

I couldn't decide what I wanted to post, so I have something masculine, and something feminine.
And who can resist Hello Kitty? I think she's just precious:
