Hello friends! Its Jennifer and I'm here to share a layout I created with the new Say Cheese Halloween collection!  I  know we are still in the swing of summer, but Halloween will be here before we know it  (and its my favorite holiday) ! Say Cheese Halloween has fun bright colors along with the traditional orange and black!  Plus, it has elements just for Disney fans that you can incorporate into your project! 

I  began with adhering my kraft cardstock to the multi-colored dot print of So Creepy and stitched around the edges. I  then cut strips of some of my favorite prints and adhered them vertically in the center of my page. Before adhering my 5x7 photo, I  matted it onto white cardstock to help the prints pop.

I  love all of the cute shapes and sayings in the Say Cheese Halloween Bits and Pieces! I used this deco shaped plaid journaling spot to document about my photo. I  also added the cute pumpkin die cut, as well as the teal heart and arrow.  For my title, I  used pop dots to adhere the "Boo" sentiment from the Combo Sticker sheet.  

Say Cheese Halloween has so many great embellishments to choose from!  The Combo Sticker sheet alone has a multitude of whimsical characters and sentiments such as the multi-colored polka dot heart and "tis the season to be spooky" sentiment! I  love to layer my embellishments to create dimension. 

This cute die cut banner looks perfect draped across the upper corner of my photo! And the bat trio I  adhered with some foam tape at the top of my page. Both are found in the Say Cheese Bits and Pieces!

Hello! It's Jennifer here today to share a layout I  created with one of the new Halloween collections!  I  know its only July but I'm always so excited when the new fall and Halloween lines are debuted!  Happy Haunting has the traditional orange and black colors with greys and pinks mixed in! I  began with white cardstock as my background. Using the B side of Jeepers Creepers, I  cut out my spider web on the Silhouette. I  then added different prints to fill in the negative spaces of the web.

For my title, I  popped up the "Trick or Treat" die cut from the Happy Haunting Icon Bits and Pieces pack. The Icons are full of cute Halloween shapes as well as some fun sentiments!  I  also added a few enamel dots from my stash as well as a spider from the 6x12 Chipboard

The Happy Haunting line also includes Journal Bits and Pieces full of additional sentiments and of course, journaling spots! (If you are wondering whether you need both Bits and Pieces packs, you do!).  Here, I  used a grey-lined rectangle journal spot to document a little information about my page.   I  then added a fun sentiment above using pop dots.  

I  really love the whimsical shapes included in the Icons Bits and Pieces! Here I used two die cuts at the left of my photo, popping up the jack-o-lantern with foam tape.  I  also used one of the half-circle die cuts from the Journal Bits and Pieces to slide under the bottom of my picture.

Hello, its Jennifer here on the blog!  Today I'm happy to share a layout I created with the Heart collection!  If this line looks familiar, you aren't imagining things!  Heart was originally released as a Simple Set a few years ago and is now back with the same beautiful prints plus some as well as additional embellishments! I  cannot tell you how excited I was to see this collection again because of its wonderful meaning.  My page is about my dear angel mother who passed away 10 years ago this month. A lot of tears were shed creating my layout but I  feel that its therapeutic and healing to scrap about the people we've lost. 

I  started by cutting the My Heart print in half and adhering each side to a white cardstock background. I  loved the contrasting light blue ledger print against the grey/white heart.  I  then adhered and stitched a strip of my favorite plaid of So Loved down the middle. Using the navy from the Heart Simple Basics Kit, I  cut my heart frame cut file on the Silhouette. I   then adhered different prints inside the negative spaces of the heart to add extra color! 

For my title, I  used the script words "miss you" off the 6x12 Chipboard as well as added flowers to accent from both the Chipboard and Bits and Pieces pack.  

For journaling, I  utilized one of the tags in the Bits and Pieces and layered a die cut floral cluster underneath. You can also spy one of the beautiful Washi Tapes that coordinate with the line which I  placed over the navy/white stripe border sticker from the Combo Sticker sheet. I  also added two die cut heart prints at the bottom of my tag; one of which I  adhered with pop dots to add dimension. 

The Bits and Pieces pack also includes smaller journaling spots such as the gold yellow framed one you see here. I'm always a big fan of the typed sentiment stickers in the 4x6 Stickers as they make a wonderful addition to your title or just if you want to add something extra to your page! 

One of the beautiful things about the Heart collection is that you will find embellishments and papers that include gold foil!  Here is a small pennant from the Bits and Pieces that I  adhered to the top of my photo with pop dots.  Also included are die cut gold foil hearts

Thank you for stopping by the blog today!  I  hope this inspires  you to create a page about someone you love that is in heaven with the Heart collection! Have a great day!
