Mr. Frank

So I am starting to posting my ladies' night projects a little earlier than last time. We are moving into Autumn weather, I can almost taste it! There are those mornings when I wake up in the morning and go outside and there is a crispness to the air. I love it! This also means that Halloween is just around the corner. So I had to have a Halloween card at my Fall Cards Ladies' Night. I saw this great idea over at Dawn's blog, were she used the top notes die to create a cute Frankenstein. I think Mr. Frank is a cutie pie. He was lots of fun to make!

Ink: Basic Black, Old Olive, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker, White Signo Gel Pen

More Pages for my Bros Wedding Album

I couldn't bear to show you my messy desk Again, so I took the pictures of the layout on my ugly rug that I bought for $15 for our living room floor. We are on a student's budget ya know, ha ha! There really isn't anything special about this layout, all I know is that I am one layout closer to being done!
I did do some faux embossing with Craft Vanilla and the Perfect Plum ink.
I tried to make the title rhyme, I don't know how I like my hand writing. Oh well, hopefully they do.

Scrap Booking KWerner Style!

When I saw Kristina's color inspiration for this week I thought of some pictures that I could scrap book. I think these colors are beautiful together and it really makes me think of fall.
This is what I came up with. I embossed the leaves with craft Chocolate Chip ink and clear EP. I think is looks really nice in person. You may be wondering where the Bravo Burgundy is, well it is the maple leaf, it almost looks like the chocolate chip.
I didn't have room for lots of journaling so I made some inserts. I made them at the top so people wouldn't have to take the whole page out to read it.

I layered 3 different ribbons to make the strip: so saffron, old olive, and pumpkin pie. I also stamped the letters on DSP Spring Flowers, which is now retired, and I cut them out and mounted them on different colors of card stock.
I also added more ribbon to the tab to help it stick out a little and also make it look a little prettier. I should really start doing this more often and maybe I will get some more scrap booking done for my own family. We'll see. Supplies:
Stamp Sets: With Gratitude, Jumbo Outline Alphabet
Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, DSP Spring Flowers (Retired)
Ink: Craft Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, Stampin' Write Marker Chocolate Chip, Signo White Gel Pen
Accessories: Clear EP, So Saffron Poly-Twill Ribbon, Old Olive 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Tab Punch, Sponge,
