"Enter if you Dare" with the FALLOWEEN Daily Diary Kit.

Hi There, Lynn here with a new pocket page using this month's "Falloween" Daily Diary Kit. The design team has a fun challenge this week called "Enter if you Dare". We added an interactive element somewhere on our project. This weekend I went to Home Goods and loved their Halloween decorations. I used the Collect App for my photos this week. Here's the whole page.

For my interactive element I used a craft knife to cut open the door on this next card. I added a button from the kit for the doorknob - it looks like an eyeball!
When the door is open ...
Here's more close ups of my cards. Check out the cute couple...
I added some embellishments to the photos to dress them up!
Here's the last few cards.

{Apples & Peaches} with the "Falloween" Classic Kit

Happy Monday!  It's Meridy here this morning and today I will be sharing a double page spread using the "Falloween" Classic Kit.  I love the bright colors in the Pebbles "Woodland Forest" line of papers that pop up in this month's kit.  I decided to match the colors in these papers to the photos of my family picking apples and peaches last fall.

I really wanted to use the cute gnome paper on a layout, so I decided to use it in moderation, and place it like a border across the top of both sides of the layout.

Next, I took the wooden apple and painted it red to help it blend in with my layout a little better.  I also fussy cut a few butterflies out of the B side of one of the "Woodland Forest" papers. I added one of the epoxy buttons and a few enamel dots to these items and created a little sprinkling of embellishments along side of the main photo on my layout.

Again, I had fun with the title of this layout.  I was all out of "A"s by now, so I turned a couple of "V"s upside down and I think it reads easily.  The subtitle "Fall is in the Air" is actually part of an Echo Park branding strip.  I think my favorite part of the layout is the little chipboard tree.  I added 3 enamel dots to represent apples in the tree.  So fun!!!

As for the right side of the layout, I used an 8x10 collage print to fit lots of photos.  I do this from time to time because I cannot narrow down my photos sometimes and I want to include them all. 

Since the collage takes center stage on this side of the layout, I just layered a few simple papers and created a small embellishment cluster with some enamel dots, epoxy buttons, and a fussy cut butterfly.  Now I feel like these photos shine, yet coordinate with the papers on the layout.

And that wraps it up for today's layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  See you soon!

Hand of God | Falloween Classic Kit

Good morning, Noel Mignon friends!  Wendy here today sharing a new page based on a daring challenge...  "Enter if you Dare" - your challenge, is to create an interactive element on your project.
I chose to document Hurricane Matthew, our first run in with a hurricane in FL, and how we were truly spared devastation!

I used the die-cut spider web to portray the fear that a hurricane can bring.  I split my web in half to then serve as the doors to open up and see the miracle.  The cute wood buttons served as my door knob.  

The web is only glued down on the straight edge so that the pictures underneath can be viewed.  And yes, I found this picture on FB as Hurricane Matthew was moving in and it was a skull, truly scary.

But, God!

Winds were supposed to hit our town at 130mph, instead the winds were 65mph with a few 80mph gusts, that was a true miracle which I am so thankful to my Heavenly father for!

Fall Fun | Falloween Classic Kit

Hey friends, Laura here today sharing a new layout using my October "Falloween" Kit, it is so full of gorgeous Fall and Halloween goodness!  This week the DT is challenged with the theme "falling leaves" and asked to use leaves of some sort on our pages.

This is the layout that I created using photos of my son and his fiance and their little sweetie, Dylan!

I love this red patterned paper and knew I wanted to feature it on my page, which is how it became my background paper.  I kept most of my elements central on my page, creating a nice focal area for my photos!

I hand cut a little wood-grained tag and clustered my leaf elements around it.

These little Bella Blvd clips are so sweet, I used my sewing machine to adhere this one to my page.

Because I opted for a larger title, I added it to the bottom of my page, these Thickers are so great!

I have created a process video for this layout, you can check it out below or here on my You-Tube channel!

Supply List: American Crafts cardstock, Thickers and wood buttons; Pebbles patterned papers from the Woodland Forest collection - stitched floral and apple cider and wood accents; Echo Park "Fall is in the Air"  Autumn Bunting patterned paper and chipboard; May Arts ribbon; Bella Blvd clip and ephemera; Pretty Little Studios October cut apart phrase strips.  (from my stash)  DMC embroidery floss; Mr. Huey's white mist; Sharpie pen.

Thanks so much for visiting today! Be sure to check back daily for loads of DT inspiration!

I love fall!!

Hey guys, Michelle here with another layout using the fabulous Falloween Classic Kit. This week our pages are all about leaves which is pretty easy to do given the time of year!

For my layout I used the acorn patterned paper along with those wonderful leaf doilies which were perfect placed behind my photos.

I also used lot of those great chipboard pieces on my page, including the title.
So who else is having fun documenting Fall with the Falloween kits??

Documenting Week 38 with Falloween!

Danielle here! Today I have week 38 of my Project Life to share, using the Falloween Daily Diary Kit by 

First up is the Process Video

This weeks Design Team challenge is Falling Leaves - use leaves somewhere on your layout.

This week my boys wanted to include some drawings. Noah drew a picture of our dogs, and Liam drew a picture of me! I also included a tag from a new shirt my husband purchased.

you can see here that for the challenge, I used 2 3x4 cards with leaves printed on them, then added one of the Pebbles Rubber Charms that is a leaf.

I found some pictures the boys drew, on their desks, and decided to include them, using a 8.5 x 11 page protector. For some added fun and texture I stitched a ruffled strip of purple velvet ribbon from my stash.

And here are some close ups

Thanks for stopping by! How is your 2016 Project Life coming along?

Falloween: Halloween Dance

Good morning, friends! Jana Eubank here. I'm back with another page using the beautiful Falloween kits!

This week we are highlighting the season with the "Falling Leaves" challenge, where we are to use leaves somewhere on our project. I love this challenge, because the falling leaves in October are one of my favorite things about the season. There is nothing like a confetti of warm colors sprinkling around you as you walk down the street. :D

For my layout, I used the American Crafts orange leaf die cut as a background element in my layers. I also punched several leaves from the green cardstock to accent the flower clusters (Falloween Daily Diary Kit) and other elements on the page.


I love the woodgrain Thicker alphabet letters in this kit. They reminded me of a tree branch and I thought it would be fun to add punched leaves to the first letter of each word in my title. 

I used a lot of embellishments from the Daily Diary kit on this page. Here, I accent the fox wood veneer with flower embellishments and a pumpkin I handcut from one of the journaling cards.

I brought the wood and floral elements to the other side of the page by creating this cute, little cluster next to the journal card.

I hope you are having a beautiful October, wherever you are in the world. It is my favorite month of the year! I hope you'll take a minute to get outside and enjoy the falling leaves and then come in and use them as inspiration on your next project.

See you again soon!
