For this sample I was inspired by not only Gecko Galz School Days Customer Challenge but also Craft Hoarders Anonymous School and Office supply challenge. I started with a 7 Gypsies mini printer tray in white and combined great images from Gecko Galz School days collage sheets and their School Days Stamp set as well as some amazing little push pins I found at the dollar store (they are between the banner pieces). Also I used some 3 D elemnts like the apple, megaphone and books to create a cute design perfect for any parent or teacher. I used removable glue dots on the class picture so it could be replaced with an actual class photo.
I love creating unusual works for gifts and you can find all kinds of fun things at the office supply store!

If you get a chance and want to try your hand at either of these challenges go check out the rules!

So it is no secret that fall is one of my favorite times of the year I love how the crisp breezes turn the leaves into a painting of golds, browns and reds. And how the air smells of cinnoman every time you walk into your favorite craft store. So being inspired by all these factors I was compelled to design a few cards  using some amazing images from Gecko Galz, papers from SEI and Graphics 45, and ribbons from May arts!

Autumn Colors Card

for this card I used Gecko Galz Autumn Colors inchies sheet as well as matching papers by SEI. I layered on the papers and added a bit of clear stickles to the flower centers to add some sparkle. Next the text paper strip is from paper studio and I inked it in brown along the edges. Next I resized the inchies to 1.5" and inked their edges in brown. then I used a piece of ribbon from May arts and tied a bow around it.

Leave a Little Sparkle Card

for this card O started with a piece of Graphics 45 paper for the base then added another piece which is harringbone design and to the left of the card an image from Gecko Galz Haunted ephemera sheet combining the lady and the witch hat. Next I used a piece from Gecko Galz Chalk Board sentiments ehat says "Leave a Little Sparkle wherever you go" and sprinkled that with clear stickles for the sparkle effect. and finished with a terrific piece of may arts ribbon.

Hope you are inspired to go our and create your own bit of autumn colored creations.

So this month I thought it might be fun to share some little witches with all of you so you can create some amazing Halloween craft projects. So I went to Penterest and found some amazing images I wanted to share with all of you. If you have never checked out Penterest I highly recommend it, though it is very very addicting! I hope you have fun with the images and as always if you do something fun with them attach a link to this entry so everyone can check them out.
