StyleTechCraft Fall Blog Hop with Designer Crafts Connection

I have had this plate for a while now and never use it, so I decided to decorate it so it is a pretty piece to have out for the Fall season. 


StyleTechCraft has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

I used three different colors and styles of StyleTechCraft Vinyl. I used Opal Vinyl in Amber, Luster Vinyl in Bronze and Ultra FX Vinyl in Rust


 I die cut out a bunch of leaves using Poppystamps Maple Trio and Poppystamps Autumn Leaf Set dies.


I then arranged the leaves onto the plate to get an idea of how I wanted them and then adhered them into place by pulling the backing off of the vinyl and sticking them down. 


Here are some close-ups at different angles for you to see the fabulous color of the vinyl. The StyleTechCraft Opal Vinyl changes color depending on the angle. The StyleTechCraft Ultra FX Vinyl has holographic flakes in them and the StyleTechCraft Luster Vinyl has a satin finish to them.





Designer Crafts Connection and StyleTechCraft are doing a blog hop sharing lots of inspiration on how to use StyleTechCrafts vinyl. Make sure to visit Designer Crafts Connection blog for the list of designers and to hop along.

Trick or Treat Halloween Scrapbook Layout

Today I am sharing another layout with you. This one is a Trick or Treat scrapbook layout.  We always go all out every year decorating for Halloween making our house extra spooky. So for my layout I used a few photos of our house along with a photo of my daughter heading out to go trick or treating in her spooky costume.


Creative Embellishments has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Below is a process video showing how I created my layout.

I used some of Imagine's Mboss Embossing Powder in New Years Eve on the Creative Embellishments Spiders, Spider Web Flourish Border and on the bats from the Halloween Scene 2 chippies. On the pumpkins from the Halloween Scene 2 and also on the Trick or Treat title from the Happy Halloween Word Set, I used Mboss Embossing Powder in Orange. For the Spider Web Corner, I painted it with some watered down The Crafter's Workshop White Gesso.



Then on the haunted house and the tumb stone that also is from the Halloween Scene 2 and on the Creepy Tree, I daubed on several coats of The Crafter's Workshop Black Gesso to create a bumpy texture. Behind the haunted house, I tucked in one of the flairs from the Boo Flair Set.

Flower Power Retro Layout & Paper Flower Organization

Hello! Today I am sharing a Flower Power retro layout I created.


Creative Embellishments has provided me with some of the product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Last year for Halloween I dressed up as a hippie flower girl.  I don't usually like doing layouts of just myself but once I saw the Creative Embellishments Flower Power chipboard sentiment with the peace signs I had to use them with this photo of me.

Below is a process video showing how I created my layout.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


For the Flower Power chipboard sentiment and the peace signs that came with it, I embossed them with embossing powder.


I did the same with the Retro Flowers and clustered them around on my layout with the peace signs and paper flowers.



I adhered a couple of the flairs from the Peace Set into the center of some of the paper flowers.


I have tons of these paper flowers that I used on my layout and had the hardest time keeping them organized until I got the Deflecto Rotating Carousel. Now I can sort them by color easily and store them without having loose flowers in drawers like I did before.
