Halloween Decorations with Thriller

Hello Everyone!
I just wanted to share with you all some of the Halloween decorations I have been working on this past weekend.  This is black card stock for the circles and red card stock for background and letters.  I used an image from the stamp of the month for September "Thriller for the center point.  My handmade roses are black and red card stock and the tutorial is in my blog already.  I just sanded them a little for some extra little scary effect.  Usually these decorations are hanging, but I decided that they needed to be mounted.

You ONLY have until Sept. 30th, to own the Stamp of the Month "Thriller", so get yours now!!!

Exclusive CTMH backgrounds by CTMH's Studio J

Let me share with you some super cute backgrounds you can ONLY find in Studio J.  Yep!!!  You guessed it, Studio J is digital scrapbooking at it BEST!!!  No kidding, you can distress, add embellishments, change layouts, use one picture or 12 per layout.  It's INSANE!!!

I just finished my first two layouts and I just love them!!! 
I'm so excited, I had to tell you this instant.  I'm a little slooooooooow in getting my pictures printed out for regular scrapbooking, so this has opened my eyes to faster, simpler and easy scrapbooking.

Here is another sample of another paper packet, and this is going to be one of my favorites, because I have hundreds of pictures of my kids in the pool.

Hooligans Layouts

Hello Everyone! Well... Here they finally are.  The Hooligans Layouts.
I know, I know... It did take me a long time to get these out to you all, and I really don't have any other reason but that I was having way too much fun spending time with my family.
For the gals that are going to join me on Tuesday and Thursday for the workshops,
here is a list of the tools to bring:
3D Adhesive foam tape
Piercing tool
Adhesive for ribbon
Black thin marker and your basic tool kit.
I will be posting next months layouts next Monday, so if any of you would like to purchase the kits, you may do so.  I am working on the video on putting the layouts together.  So if any of you purchase the kit and can not make it to the workshop or lives out of the city or state, you will have access to putting it together step by step by watching a video.
The video link will be emailed to you via internet purchased and a password to access the video will in the email sent directly to you.  I can't wait to see what the results of this will be.  I am also planning on doing this for the "Mini Card Kits and Mini Holiday Treat Kits".

I can't wait to see all of the gals this coming week, it's always so much fun to have girl time.
Can't wait!!!
