Paper Temptress Birthday

As I was working on my scrapbook pages, some of them are fall layouts, I came up with some cut files for pumpkins, leaves, some sayings and an outhouse. I cut the pumpkins out of Paper from using flame mica metallic and Emerald mica metallic, it's hard to see on the card, but it does have the best sheen. This card is in honor of Papertemptress's 1 year birthday. Be sure and check back on Monday for a surprise, I'll give you a hint, it's a free file, good for that day only, if you check back on Tuesday, your too late. I'll have a sample made with PaperTemptress papers with the file.

Play Ball Layout

I took a lot of pictures of Zachary playing with his ball in the yard, I hated not to use them all so I put a row of them along the bottom.

Stamping in my Scrapbook

I've been working on making cutting files and finishing up on my journaling, here is one that didn't need a title or journaling, isn't he cute. I used the pumpkin and leaf stamps from Stampin Up
thanks to my good friend Elaine and cut them out and then added them to my scrapbook page, I'm trying to use stamps more in my scrapbook pages. Elaine has a lot of cool ideas on her blog too,
Check it out.

Wow, it's over already, I look forward to those 4 days all year long, and they go so fast. I don't know if it's because there is no cell phone service in the mountains, or if it's just the getting away, or if it's the ladies I usually only see once a year, but it's the best scrapbook weekend in the year. We laugh together, cry together, pick on each other, share ideas and supplies, it's just so wonderful. We always play the left, right game, and this year I ended up with a pretty 6x6 paper pack, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, and ended up making 24 thank you cards, I made 4 of each design. Below are the 6 I made, they are simple but it used up that paper pack I won, I haven't finished unpacking from the crop yet, but I will post more probably thursday.

Thank you for all your kind words about my files. I'm planning to offer more free files in the future, for now I thought I'd post some questions and answers I received yesterday during my blog hop.
QUESTION..Can you give me more information on how to use vinyl with my cutter?

DIANA..I will post a tutorial on my blog on where to buy vinyl and how to use it in the next few day.
QUESTION..I noticed an awesome spinner album image in your sidebar but the link didn't work. Is this something you sell?

DIANA..I have about 5 kits left, I made the spinner with double sided paper and chipboard, (not included in the kit) you'll get the bare wood with a lazy susan attached so it spins, ball for the top, o-wire to connect the paper with your bind-it-all, and instructions on how to assemble it all I used 5" x 5 1/4" size for the album, but you can make it a little bigger if you want. $20.00 includes shipping and I can send you a paypal request if you wish to purchase one.
