Seasonal Expression Recipe Challenge

Here is another Seasonal Expression 1 recipe challenge. It is the layout in the upper left hand corner of page 23, which happens to be the beginning of the Make Waves collection, our featured paper collection for February.

I used the leftovers from the Make Waves Scrapbooking Workshop Your Way to create my version of this layout. I started with a piece of the Willow mermaid scales pattern paper and added a zip strip (those 1/2" x 12" pieces that contain the paper collection information on one side and a pattern on the other) to a White Daisy base page.

An 8" x 8 1/2" piece of Bashful cardstock with a 6" x 8 1/2" piece of the stripe pattern paper finished up with a 4 1/2" x 5" piece of the pansy and white polka dot pattern paper to create the focal matting for the photo. The title was cut on the Cricut. I embellished with several of the leftover Complements from my stash.

It is fun to play with the artwork shared in the Idea Book! Are you up for the challenge? Do you have your Seasonal Expression 1 Idea Book? What would be your first 'recipe idea' to try? Please share in the comments.

Holiday Expression goes LIVE

A NEW Holiday Expression Idea Book went LIVE today, September 1st!! And it is FULL of Fall and Holiday FUN!!

Below you will find out how you can get FREE shipping on your FIRST Holiday Expression order, you must order through me.
There are FOUR great Stamps of the Month and we start with Sweet Treats. A great stamp for Halloween, Christmas, winter, and friendship.

Here are to cards I created using Sweet Treats!

I created a Halloween shaker card using our new Shaker thin cuts and Shaker Window Foam & Acetate (Z4310). I used one of the circle thin cuts to cut a small circle in the card base and used the larger circle and frame to create a see through shaker. I cut little bats on the Cricut and added the Shaker Sequins.
And don't forget to do the inside and envelope
Next I cut a large circle with the Shaker Thin Cut and added a Cricut cut leaf frame. The Warm Winter Wishes image was stamped on the inside and a piece of Ruby polka dot ribbon from my stash was added to the front.
