Do you have a friend or loved one that lives far away?  What a perfect opportunity to send a handwritten note to say hello.  Sure, emails and texts are definitely quicker, but the old-fashioned elegance of sitting down to write cannot compare.

Halloween 12 x 12 Layout

When the candy corn comes out in the stores, Halloween is not far behind.  For my project today, I did a 12 x 12 inch layout of the first bag of candy corn of the season.  It’s completely gone already of course, but I still have the picture!  I used Echo Park’s Bewitched Collection Kit for the entire page except for some older Thickers I had in my drawer for the title.

Cozy Fall Card

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on her blog Blue Scallop Creations and on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

A cozy fall scene makes the perfect focal point on a greeting card.  For today’s project, I was inspired by the little house tag in Carta Bella’s Fall Break ephemera pack and wanted that to be a part of my card.  Since I was not doing any stamping, I wanted to add a stenciled layer and a leaf layer for the tag to rest on.

Halloween Treat Tags

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on her blog Blue Scallop Creations and on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

I love making tags almost as much as cards.  They’re quick to make and you can still use all your fun scrapbook and stamping supplies—just on a smaller scale!  Halloween is always a fun time for tags because of all the fun candy treats you can attach them to.  In today’s post I show you ways to use up those piles of “googly” eyes you may have hiding in your craft room.  I know I have a ton and they seem to multiply.

Traveler’s Notebook Fall “To Do List”

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

With school back in session and the weather getting cooler, it’s time to start thinking about Fall festivities.  There are tons of things I like to do this time of year, and as a scrapbooker, documenting is half the fun!  New themed scrapbook supplies make it even better.  For today’s project, I thought it would be fun instead of a Post-It, to write my Fall “to do” list on the pages of a traveler’s notebook.

Same Stamp, New Season

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi. Follow Heidi on Instagram @bluescallopcreations.

When you see a floral themed stamp set, do you usually think spring and summer?  I know I do!  I love getting out bright markers or paints and creating bold blooms that “pop” against white card stock, but there’s no reason to tuck those floral stamps away when the cool, Fall air hits.  My project today shows how to bring a floral stamp you might have a tendency to use for more bright and Summer-y cards into Fall.
