Gossamer Blue October Kit | Halloween Mini Album

I am so excited to share this mini album with you!  I do an album every year, and the Gossamer Blue kits were perfect to do an album ahead of time, ready for photos.  You can see the blog post here on the Gossamer Blue blog for more details.

Here are the photos of the prepped album ready for photos.  Everything is from the kits except the ribbon and the album.

I cannot wait to fill the album with October and Halloween memories.  We have already had a fun weekend of the pumpkin patch and the Halloween fun at the mall to document...

Halloween and Christmas are my favorite times to pull out the big camera.  I love it so much!  Thanks so much for stopping by...I hope you grabbed the Halloween kits from Gossamer Blue before they sold out!

My Introduction | Team Richard Garay

I just recently shared my exciting news of joining Richard Garay's Make Amazing Design Team!  But wanted to do another post explaining how I learned about Richard and to introduce myself a little bit to those part of his amazing company.  

When I first learned of Richard, I wondered where I had been and why I had not heard of him before?!  I felt like I had lived under a rock!  I immediately went to his blog, where I discovered he is president of Fun Stampers Journey.  FSJ is a direct sales company.  Richard and his wife, Gabby are also co-founders of Journey Blooms.  Richard also has his own brand!  Celebra'tions is one of his retail lines.  This Yummy Treat project uses his Celebra'tions collection.  Awesome, right!  You can download the PDF with step by step how to here!  

More is coming from the Richard Garay's brand, and that is what I will be working with...sneaks to come!

Although Richard is not new to the industry, I can see he and his team are continuing to grow. That excites me!  He makes creating fun, he makes it easy for anyone to recreate what he or his team has created, and he has the desire to reach out, teach and share his passion.

When I started learning about scrapbooking in 2007, I got involved in art journaling, mixed media, photography, you name it.  I wanted to absorb it all!  I have been very lucky and blessed to be published and be part of some amazing manufacturers and teams.  This opportunity from Richard came at a time when I was ready for it.  I am so excited to continue to learn and grow along side Richard and his amazing team!

Gossamer Blue October Reveal!

The October Gossamer Blue kits are going fast.  So if there's anything left that you love, grab it!  I used all of the kits except Add On 2, Bits and Pieces, and the paper add on.

Will be sharing more of what I did later in the month.  But here is a lot that I did...LOVED these kits!

The non-themed October kits  were perfect for us celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary!  And my Project Life spread for the month of July is my current favorite spread!  The cards and stamps this month were a favorite!

Gorgeous non-themed October kits and work so well for any occasion!!  But I had to play with the themed Halloween kits!

I did all my kit work at a 3-day crop, and I finish up any journaling or stitching or anything else I think needs to be added.  I could not add more to this layout.  I felt like the photo with the cut file offset was just right.  A ghostly white!  LOL

Heidi Swapp has plastic Halloween Marquees at Kohl's.  Of course, I had to decorate one!  The kit made this come together so fast!  I am so happy to see that Crate Paper came out with a Halloween collection...their vintage style is perfect for it!

I have a mini album I prepped as well for Halloween photos...will be on the Gossamer Blue blog Oct. 12th!

Can't say enough...some of the kits are grab what you can!  Enjoy!

Gossamer Blue October Sneaks!

If you know me, you know I love Halloween and especially love Halloween products.  So I was VERY excited to see the Gossamer Blue has the new After Dark by Crate Paper in their themed kits for October!  There is an extra add-on just for Halloween in additional to the usual themed Life Pages kit.  I got both!

Here's some sneaks from the themed kits.

The non-themed kits are just as amazing!  Very amazing!  So I had to do a couple more projects with the Main kit and Main Life Pages kit.

The cards and stamps in these kits are my all-time favorite.  They just worked so well for my July spread!

Reveal is October 1st!  These won't last long.  Grab these when they are up!
