Sizzix Eclips Layouts

I've been able to get a little scrapping in this weekend, in between shopping episodes (lol) and have a couple of Eclips layouts to share.  I'm a fairly simple scrapper, and I love how quickly my pages come together with the Eclips.  All cuts are from the Boy and Girl Cartridge (one of my favorites!).

The white colors in the scan are distorted, they really do match better IRL - the backgound on this one was a scallop background Sizzix Bigz Pro die cut on my Big Shot Pro machine - love that machine!  Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

Imagine JT Coolness

Ok, so how cool is the Cricut Imagine JT Cartridge??? Way cool if you ask James - he helped make the dragon cut and design this karate page.

I made this for Emma and Sarah's Imagine-Nation blog challenge and the only rule was to use polka-dots.  First, I had printed the entire background page in the red dot pattern from the JT cartridge (love that I can print a whole sheet of paper now with the latest Imagine update), but that was just too polka-dotty for James.  I have to admit the page looked a whole lot better with just a strip of dots and the black background.  The orange paper is Basic Grey which coordinated perfectly.  The Kanji character tags were cut from the Cricut Pagoda cartridge and mean 'strength' which I thought was appropriate here.

Look - More Halloween!!

I'm on a roll with my Halloween photos - still loving the red wood paper from October Afternoon Seaside!

I found this cool tree on the Sizzix Eclips Holiday Cartridge and it worked perfectly here to showcase my new favorite Owl cut with the Sizzix Medium Owl die.  I cut him in white cardstock (except for the feet and nose) and colored him with my Copic markers to achive a 'feathered' look. I used my Silhouette to design and cut the title, using a true type font called "Harry P".  If you look closely at the photos, you can see that I also used my Silhouette and that font to decorate my son's trick-or-treat bag with his name.  Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!!

Halloween Parade Layout

Wow - this may be a record - I've already started scrapping my Halloween photos - and yes, the ones from this year!!

This page went together so quickly - the title was cut on my Sizzix Eclips machine using the Starter cartridge.  The papers are from October Afternoon (red wood background from Seaside, and stripe from Weathervane).  The mini market letter stickers are also October Afternoon.  I have used a variation of this simple page arrangement many times - it is one of my 'go-to' sketches.  I hope everyone had a great Halloween!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Scrapping!!
