Trick or Treating with the Digichick Designers and Creative Team!

Happy Halloween y'all! Welcome to those of you here for the Trick or Treating!

The Digichick Designers and Creative Team have cooked up some awesome goodies to pass out for the Trick or Treaters! Some are Halloween themed, some are Thanksgiving themed and some are for everyday use.

My treat is the center cluster from this layout (minus the "sweet as sugar" tab and yellow ribbon):

Show and Tell and a new Hybrid team!

I'm trying hard to get back into posting regularly on my blog.

In September, I was a guest Hybrid member at ScrapMatters - these are the projects I created during my guest stint:

My month was over quickly but good news! I was asked to stay on as part of the Hybrid Team! Yay!

I'll be hosting the I'll Pencil You in! challenge in the Hybrid forum at ScrapMatters on 10/15. It's a monthly challenge to help everyone get those calendar toppers finished so they can be ready to give as Christmas gifts!

In the meantime, here's a layout I did tonight as part of my ScrapMatters - One of my assigned designers is Stolen Moments:

I used Stolen Moments' Everyday Elegance kit:

Isn't it gorgeous!

That's it for me tonight! I'll see you in a few days with some more layouts and projects!

Catch you on the flip side!

Be Inspired! Ride along with Kelleigh Ratzlaff's blog hop!

Hey everyone! Long time no post! Yes, I know... I am hanging my head in shame over it. It's so easy to get in the habit of regularly posting but even easier to get OUT of the habit.

I'm posting today as part of a Blog Hop with Kelleigh Ratzlaff's Creative Team. What's a blog hop some of you may ask? Blog hop, also known as blog hopping is to move from one blog after another to read the entries, to leave comments and most of inspired!

I'm very fortunate to be able to work with Kelleigh Ratzlaff's designs. Kelleigh creates the best Hybrid templates for The Digichick.

All of Kelleigh's templates are easy to use! You just print on regular sized 8.5 x 11" paper. Her templates come with a "lines only" pdf files for printing on traditional scrapbook paper and cardstock, as well as the standard png and photoshop files for use with digi papers.

Now for my project.... When Kelleigh released this template a weeks ago, I saw it differently than the her CT members. The template I am talking about is her Daddy's Toolbox template set:

Here's what I saw (and finally made!):

These are Memory game cards that I made using Pamela Donnis' and Jan Hosford's collab Barnyard Blast kit. The cards are sized and fit perfectly in the barn!

The barn was created using a paper from the Barnyard Blast kit. After I printed my barn, I glued narrow white ribbon around the barn for my trim. The cards are the size of a standard playing card - 2.25" x 3.5". Once I created my sets of cards, I simply printed them out on paper, cut and glued them to colored cardstock to make them sturdier. (Thanks to Kari *karistamps* for posting the idea of creating a memory card game and using cardstock to make them sturdier!)

So, as you head off to see what Kelleigh's CT is up to, remember that a template is just that - a template. It's meant to fuel your imagination and creativity!

Here's the list of who is participating in the blog hop - go and be inspired!!!
LuAnn you are here!

Kelleigh is giving away the Perfect Pumpkin Template to one lucky person who comments on her blog so make sure you leave her a comment!!!

How cool is that? Good luck and thanks for stopping by! Oh, and I'm impatient - so my post is up. Most others have their blogs set to post Friday morning sometime.
