I Am Roses Project - Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows Layout

Halloween is just around the corner (gasp!) and what better way to kick it off with a fun layout.  I just ordered the new Teresa Collins Haunted Hallows collection and knew I HAD to use it right away.  Traditional Halloween colors in super fun designs with a TC flair, I loved working with this paper and this project came together so easily. Note to self - USE PAPER YOU LOVE TO CREATE! 

Also wanted to use a lot of the supplies that I had not gotten the opportunity to play with yet.  I busted out some Tim Holtz Dies and Sizzlits along with a super fun My Favorite Things banner trio die and it was ON!  Also, paired these with black glitter paper and voila!

I wanted to create a "scene" with the Rickety House die and Branch Tree die so I used some 1.25 inch black roses to create a bush area.  Also, wanted to use some orange 0.75 inch flowers and black 0.25 inch to highlight one of the rosettes I created with the Tim Holtz Paper Rosette die.

Here are the links to the flowers I used in this project:

0.25 Inch Roses (black used in project)

0.75 Inch Roses (Mixed Random Orange and Tangerine Tone used in project)

1.25 Inch Roses (black used in project)

Here's some close ups of my project - I'm so thrilled at how this came out, I've only done a handful of 12x12 layouts and this one just came together for me - I will keep practicing, its just such a big "canvas" to work on, but so worth it in the end.

Card Share - Miss Anya Dressy "Just Because"

Hi Everyone,

Back with another I Am Roses project! 

I wanted to create a card for an awesome friend and decided to make a "Just Because" card.  I love the idea of suprising someone "just because".  I have been really liking The Greeting Farm Miss Anya sets of stamps, they are super easy to color and super cute.

Here I wanted to mix a citrus color with a neutral (I'm just SO into color these days).  Also, wanted to bust out my new bottle of Lindy Stamp Gang Starburst Stain in Dark Chocolate Truffle.  Love this color, it is very deep, rich and the perfect shade of luscious brown.  I used it to paint the petals of the I Am Roses Puffy Daisies. 

Products featured in this vid:

- Mixed Sizes: Orange and Tangerine

- Puffy Daisies

- 0.75 Inch Orange and Tangerine Roses

Ooh La La Paris Wish Box for Jadedstudios Secret Squirrel Swap

Hey Guys,
Just wanted to share a few pics of the items I made for the "infamous" Jadedstudios Secret Squirrel Cigar Box Swap.  You can find the awesome jade here:  This month's theme was Ooh la la Paris!.  I had tons of fun making this for my awesome "secret squirrel" evilscrapper, find her here:

Evilscrapper's favorite color is red so I made sure to use the luscious red pleated trim from my buddy Karla's etsy store: , also had tons of fun using the blingy mesh trim, small black flower trim and black flat back pearls (must-have). 

I broke into my paper stash and decided to use the Making Memories Paper Reverie line in "Noir" - its such an awesome versatile black and creme line - love the patterns too, houndstooth, damask, ledger...totally up my alley.  I love how all my projects match, such a super fun swap, go check Jade out, she is the BESTEST!

Have a great weekend everyone, I know I will!
