KDB - Pocket/Note Card

I decided to make a couple of note cards for some swaps that I am working on and this fun one was a result of that chaos creation session :) 


This fun card started out as an original pre-printed pocket card which I simply adhered two pieces of pattern paper onto and then accessorized. The whole accessory pieces was inspired by the wonderful white picket fence die cuts that I received as part of a swap...is that not the best die cut ever?

Of course I had to get this cute little KaDoodle Bug critter onto the card. This guy is called "Spider and the Hat" and can be found on sale here @ the KDB store


I cut him out as a print and cut and then my oldest and I decided nothing says spooky spider more than some glitter so away we went glittering the web.

JFF Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays so of course I had to go all out and make a wonderful Halloween card to celebrate the occasion. 


This card was easy to put together using the Moonlit Witch Silhouette stamp set and some paper from Echo Park and the Paper Studio. 

I love the silhouette stamps that Just For Fun offers because they are so simple to use and add such a statement to your cards. This image was stamped onto white cardstock using a black ink. It could have easily been embossed and looked just as spectacular. I layered my pattern paper behind it and then tied off some ribbon to cover the seam. As always I finished the card off by adding some accessories from my stash, including the crows and the button. 

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my project.

Trick or Treat KDB Layout

Halloween is right around the corner and with a new baby album in the works along with our family album I decided that I could never have enough layouts pre-designed for this busy upcoming holiday season. Today's post starts the season off right and offers a wonderful and easy to duplicate single page Halloween layout perfect for capturing all of those photos. 


The inspiration for this layout came from Pinterest and I fell in love with the idea of having a photo mat for each of my kids. I used the Trick or Treat file from KaDoodle Bug Designs along with paper from a retired CTMH pack and The Paper Studio's All Seasons paper pack. 

This whole layout was created in Design Space and all of the pieces were cut out using the print and cut feature. Honestly I was not sure if I was going to like the P&C feature on a layout, but it turns out that paired up with some foam tape the print and cut feature can really stand out. Here is the complete file if you are interested in purchasing it. 

JS Trick or Treat Title

As you can see in the layout I took those candies and separated them from the title in order to make my journal square, down in the bottom. I attached and printed out two for the bottom border and then I added an additional one up in the corner, of course popped up with 3-D tape. It's always fun to have the ability to take pieces of the file an add them as additional accents, you never have to worry about it matching. 

The banner was another really fun part to this file. I simply print and cut out multiples and then adhered them together to form a longer banner that fit across all three photo spots. Layering was a key piece of both this layout and the cut file so I continued to layer and left the black background of the title.
