Card Share by Nikki

Happy Monday Everyone!
Scrapdoodles is stocked full of fun new papers and embellishments, and you can't help but be inspired once you walk in.  On that note, today I have three, fall-themed cards to share with you.
Ingredients: Stamps and Decorative Paper: Imaginisce {You Rule}; Copics; Cardstock: Bazzill: Red, White; Accessories: 3D Dots.
Ingredients: Stamps: Unity {Lollipop Tree U and Me}; Decorative Cardstock: Creative Imaginations {Samantha Walker}, American Crafts {Nightfall: Starry Night}; Copics; Ribbon: American Crafts; Accessories: Button, Twine, Glue Dots.

On this card, I created little spiders using the iTop brad punch.  I simply punched out the shape on black cardstock, and snipped two legs from each side (to make a total of eight on each spider), matted it on decorative paper, added googley eyes and added a string.
Ingredients: Decorative Cardstock and Paper Flowers: American Crafts {Nightfall: Night Watch, Halloween Night, Fall Leaves, Nightfall Spells}; Cardstock: Bazzill {Black}; Ribbon: American Crafts; Accessories: iTop Brad Punch, Twine, Googley Eyes.


The perfect companion for scrappers everywhere! Clamps on to your desk/table and holds your drink and trash. No more worries about spilling your drink while scrapping.

Vintage Fun

For my design team pages this time I decided to use some of my vintage photos. I have a stash of old photos that I've picked up at antique stores that I always "save" for a cool project.I bit the bullet and decided to use a couple of them in two layouts.I had to use one layout with my beautiful daughters.In all of these pages I used the new My Mind's eye line,Prima flowers galore,accessories from the Vintage Vogue line by Pink Paislee,& ribbon accessories from the Stella Rose line.I love stickles so in each page there is some glitz,& also glossy accents.On one of the pages I used my white Gelly roll pen to do a little tracing over the design to create the look of doodling in the background.In the two pages where I used the vintage photos I wanted to show that it can be just as much fun to play with vintage ephemera in creating layouts as it is using family photos.Breaking away from the norm can be fun. It's all about having fun and letting your creative side out.
