This month our theme is “black”.  Join us in hopping along along each designer’s blog to see what they have created.  Since it is October and black is one of the colors that reminds me of Halloween I have created a Halloween layout using a variety of products from Paper Wings Productions.  I started off with some gesso in behind my layers and used the Line of Chevron Mask with some color mists.  Once that was dry I added in some Art Texture stamps and then began adding my layers and embellishments.

I love the Paper Wings Productions Halloween stamps and they offer a huge variety of them in their shop.  I also used the Perfect Numbers stamp set to stamp the Month and year this photo was taken.  I pulled out some scraps that I had left over from my October 2013 Mixed Media kit (which sold out quickly) as well as last month kit.  I hope enjoyed my project for today's blog hop!

It's time to send you off hopping; your first stop will be Dana's blog, so click here to get started.

Let Your Creativity Take Flight!

Clique Kits-The Cut Shoppe Team Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the Clique Kits + The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop!  You should have arrived from Michelle's Blog but if you were just dropping by please click here to start from the beginning.  We are so excited to be teaming up with The Cut Shoppe this month to bring you an amazing line up filled with tons of inspiration!  Everyone is creating with the September Clique Kit and the fabulous cut files designed by Ashley Horton owner of The Cut Shoppe!

For my project today I decided to create a mini album using my We R Memory Keepers Cinch binding machine.  Some of the cut files I used in my mini today are Borderlines Too, Just Sayin, All Around Arrows, Notebook Doddles and a few others from The Cut Shoppe.  Here is a look at my mini album.

 I love creating albums that have pages of all sizes and textures.  I added the fun Pinkfresh Studio canvas pocket with a clasp and I love the look and feel it gives to my album.  I also pulled out some fun Heidi Swapp glitter stickers from my stash and I think they go perfect with this months kit!

 I added a couple Studio Calico transparencies  as well to my mini album to add another texture to my project along with some embellishments from past Clique Kits.
 The Yam Yellow beanboard alphas from Jillibean Soup are one of my favorite things right now!  You get a ton of them in one package and I love the look and feel of them!

I hope you enjoyed my mini album as much as I enjoyed creating it!  I had so much fun with The Cut Shoppe cut files and I re-sized them to fit my project perfectly!  The blog line up is listed below.  Please remember to comment on each blog to be entered to win a prize!  We would love for you to become a follower of The Clique Kits blog along with The Cut Shoppe's blog and also like us both on Facebook!  The Cut Shoppe is giving away at $15.00 gift certificate to their shop and Clique Kits is giving away a September prize pack filled with goodies from the September kit!  Your next stop is Michelle's Blog!  Enjoy the blog hop!
