~ A Special La-La Land Treat Bag for My Boo-tiful Friend ~


Today's La-La Land Crafts Team Friday Inspiration's Challenge was to create a treat holder.  I had so much fun creating this treat bag including the pattern.  I decided to make my treat bag big so i could fit a lot of Reeses Peanut Butter Pumpkins in it since they are my absolute favorite!  YUM!!!


I couldn't help myself...I wanted the back of the treat bag to be cute, too!


How fun is this bag?!!!

La-La Land has so many incredible dies that it allows your imagination to be able to run free and create until your hearts content!  I used the Stitched Zigzags Die to die cut three different colors of cardstock and intertwined them together. I totally love how easy this was to do and how fantastic it looks!  I offset two different colors of cardstock using the Cobweb Die and the spider from the Spiderweb & Spider Die Set so they would stand out.  I added rhinestone eyes to the spiders to make them look extra creepy.  The ghosts and bats are adhered on both sides of the wire so they look like they are flying through the air.

~ A Special Scenic Birthday Wish ~


This DoveArt's Canoe Stamp from Whimsy Stamps makes the perfect masculine card or the perfect card for the nature lover.  There are so many design possibilities with this stamp.  I chose to put it in my series of card designs using the monochromatic with a pop of color technique.  In this series of card designs I am also using the Basic Stitched Ovals Die Set on every card.  I love finding different ways to use the same set of dies on each card design to give them their own special look.  On this card the image is cut out twice with two different sized ovals and popped up using dimensional foam tape at different heights with the smaller oval being higher than the bigger oval.  It really gives the canoe that 3-D dimension I was going for.  I not only used the larger oval die to cut half an oval out of the black cardstock but I also embossed this piece with the Wire Fence Embossing Folder by Darice.  This element in my design gives the card balance and the embossing along with the red twine and black rhinestones gives the card texture.


 You can see my first card design in this series HERE.

Happy World Card Making Day!!!  Today I want to share with you this beautiful DoveArt's Heart Tree stamp from Whimsy Stamps.  This Heart Tree can be used for so many different occasions not just Valentine's Day.  I think it would make a beautiful wedding, anniversary or even birthday card.


I totally love making monochromatic cards with a pop of color which is a perfect technique for making a sympathy card.  I decided to color just one falling heart red to convey my heartfelt sympathy.  I just love the message this design conveys to the recipient!

~ Happy Fall from Foxy & La-La Land Crafts ~



Happy Friday Everyone,

I'm back sharing with you today my La-La Land Craft's Inspiration Friday creation.  The theme is fall leaves.  Foxy is enjoying a beautiful fall day amongst the trees and blue sky.  I used the Birch Trees Die to cut out a few tree trunks out of some really cool woodgrain paper I had.  I colored them with my Copic E30 to give them a more realistic look and to bring out the cream color of the background paper. 


To create the beautiful blue sky, I used my airbrush machine, torn paper towel and my Copic B41...  super quick and easy.  This technique makes the perfect sky background!

~ Trick or Sweets with La-La Land Crafts ~


Hi Everyone,

I'm sharing with you today my latest La-La Land Craft's Inspiration Friday creation.  These cutie patootie bats are all dressed up for some trick or sweets for halloween.  They look like they are having a blast and I'm pretty sure they love sweets more than they like playing tricks!


I combined the bats from the Batty for You clear stamp set and the costumes and pumpkins from the Happy Boo to You clear stamp set to create this card.  Now these cuties are ready for a night of fun!

I was easily able to stamp and layer color over the sentiment just the way I wanted using my Misti.  I first stamped it using a Versafine Onyx Black ink pad to get a beautiful black impression and then I inked up the sentiment layering Distress Inks in Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade.  I love how it turned out!  This card really makes me want some Candy Corn!!!

~ Brewin' Up Some Fun with La-La Land Crafts ~



Happy Friday Everyone,

I brewed up a double shaker card for this week's La-Land Crafts Inspiration Friday creation.  If you've been following me, you know how much I love shaker cards but I also love making tags!  Why not combine the two and have twice the fun!  


I used actual halloween sprinkles for my shaker bits...I think they are a perfect addition!


Here is a close-up of all the yummy layers.


La-La Land makes it so easy to create a card with all their fabulously fun images and all of their die choices!  I think I need them all!!!

~ La-La Land Crafts ~ Peek-a-Boo ~



Hi Everyone,

La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday Team challenge today is "use a stencil or make one from a die."  I chose to make one from the Birch Trees Die and airbrush using my Copics.  These little hedgehogs are having fun playing peek-a-boo in the forest!  This card turned out exactly how I had pictured it in my mind.  


Airbrushing is such a fun, easy, fast and cool technique....plus, it uses less ink than coloring with your Copics.  To keep the trees in place while airbrushing, I used Scrapbook Adhesive's Repositionable E-Z Dots.
