Halloween Swap Event

Halloween Swapping Fun!
As October is rolling in, and we have officially began the fall season, I have switched gears to Halloween projects!  Partly because I have a little one so of course Halloween is a big deal around here....but also because I just love the colors of fall!  They are just so warm and inviting - Don't you think?

So here is the deal.........I am sponsoring a Halloween Swap.....you can sign up for the event on my face book page.  Currently there are 4 more spaces available so hurry in before they are all gone!

We will each be making 6 Halloween pages and sending them to me.  I will then divide them up and send them back.......In the end you will each get 6 different Halloween pages made by you and 5 other artists!  Fun Right?  Ok, now go :) Head on over to my Facebook page to sign up!

Base and Shade Stamping Techniques

Base and Shade Techniques

I just love trying new crafting techniques!  I have to admit though most of the time I stick with what I know best.......probably missing out on a lot of awesomeness!  Usually I start working on a project and I have limited time for it so I just go go go and don't even think about what's new :)  But I am not going to let that happen to you! LOL

This video covers terrific two tones and shows you several different ways to experiment with it!
How many more can you come up with?

We Are Nuts 4 Fall!!!! Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Nuts 4 Fall Blog Hop.  

 Make sure you read ALL the way to the bottom :)  Some great surprises for you today!  

Today we are celebrating all things fall and We have an amazing lineup for this hop.

For my project today, I have a couple of things for you :)  I have been out of commission for just a little while so I guess you could say I am trying to make up for that ;) Not to mention the fact that I find the autumn colors to be so incredibly inspiring that its really easy to get my project on!!!

I made this card and the layout with a CTMH paper packet that is already retired......I can't retire it until every scrap is gone though because I just LOVE these colors!  Don't YOU?  You can find other papers like these on my website Mickie's Little Scrap Corner 

I'm sure it goes with out saying that I cut my letters with my cricut :) and the only embelly I used on this fun little card is twine :)  Yep that is it.....just twine :)  This card looks nice but is very quick and easy!

Now for your viewing pleasure......drum roll please......project number 2 :)

This layout was inspired by my baby boy who really isn't a baby anymore...lol
 He was born in the fall and I wanted to represent that with his baby pics :)  Again very simple with the embellys!  On these I again used the twine and the only additional pieces were opaques!  I Really love those too!  I would use them on every layout if I could!


Now for my blog Candy..............And YES I do have some :)  I will hold a drawing sunday evening for some fun fall and halloween goodies :)   In order to be eligible you have to be a follower here, and on my facebook page :) and post on my page..... Happy Fall Yall!  BUT in addition to that......everyone who qualifies for the drawing will get a little gift from me......just email me your addy at littlescrapcorner@hotmail.com and I will send it right out!  Don't you just LOVE Surprises???
