Let's Get Flirty in October

Welcome to the October Paper Trail blog hop.  This month we are sharing our paper crafts made with Close To My Heart's "Flirty" paper pack.  If you've arrived from Tracey's blog, Paper Crafting Princess, you are moving right along the paper trail. We have a circular hop so you'll see us all if you just follow the links.

Flirty has such beautiful fall colors, I could hardly contain myself when it came to getting crafty.  Now grab a cuppa - I've got lots & lots to share with you!

"Flirty" X7160B

First is a two page layout that is pretty much straight out of our 2012 Fall Winter idea book.  The cool thing about the idea book is that you can copy the art exactly as you see it or tweak it for your own preference.  My layout has been tweaked, and I love it!

I wanted to do something from our new Artiste Cricut cartridge and this pumpkin seemed really appropriate.  The leaves and 'badges' are also from the cartridge.  The cute little acorn (and the pumpkins on the layouts above) are part of our Color Ready Arbor Wooden Shapes

 Since I was having so much fun with the Cricut I decided to make a couple little 3" Cricut cards, too. The size is perfect for using some of the extra pieces of the Flirty Dimensional Elements after my layouts were finished.

Are you ready for some more?  I have more cards to share.  The versatility of colors in this paper pack really allows for a great variety of cards.

I hope you've enjoyed my Flirty Gallery.  Now hop on over to Mary's blog, Road to Peace of Mind for some more great ideas & inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Retirement Party - Stamps for Sale!

I've added a new tab to my blog labelled "For Sale."  What could it be, you ask?  Why, stamps for sale, of course!  I'd love to send them out to new loving homes, so take a peek and let me know which ones you want! Some have been gently loved and others are brand new.  You know how it goes, so many stamps, so little time!

Instructions for purchase are on the page.

For Sale - needs a loving new home!

A Little More Moonlight

My daughter Alyssa got this idea from Pinterest - isn't that where we get most our ideas now days?  Witchy Fingers are made with sugar cookie dough and then presented in a French Fry holder from the the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The papers, of course, are Moonlight.
