Mischeif Layouts

Layout #A
Layout #B
Layout #C
I am really cutting it close to get our 6 page layouts done for November.  I just barely completed them.   I wanted to make a layout without using a Halloween theme design to them.  The last layout can be changed to a Halloween theme with just a few little changes of the stamped design and of course changing the title.  The Mischief paper packet from Close to my Heart is so versatile.  If you click on the pictures you will see that I made a fake backing by inking directly on the pictures with archival ink from CTMH, it was so fun and easy.  Another product that I finally used is the adhesive eraser.  With these papers being so versatile by having both  sides useful I placed a lot of adhesive on the wrong side of one of the paper pieces and the eraser removed it perfectly.  Thank heaven.

November Swap

These are Jiffy's pages.  She used the Mischeif paper packet.  We were excited to see what she had done with this Mischeif paper and we were as usual totaly impressed.  Way to go Jiffy!
These are my pages using the Roxie paper packet.  Several elements were cut with the new Cricut cartaradge from Close to my Heart.
This is Ambers layout using a popular paper packet, Lucky.  All of thought she was so creative with the use of Duct tape. Yea for her, she had our tape already scrunched and backed, which made it easy for us to add to our own pages.  I love the great title with mixed fonts and deapths.  She was atamat that we smooch down the mini brads ont the letter F so they looked like nail heads and not just plain brads. Out came the hammer and we pounded them flat.
This is Mindies layout and she used the Wonderland paper.  I just love the cute snowman, she popped up several aspects of this cute little guy.  Remember that Close to my heart has many snowflake images that coordinate with their stamps, and this is one of them.  The pretty bling is also from CTMH. 
This is Kirsten's layout, using Closet to my Heart's whimsical Fanfare paper packet.  Again I took the picture wrong.  The pages shoud be switched.  I think that I should have had the designer arrange the pages befor I took the pictures.
This is Linda's Layout, she used Sophia paper packet. Look close at the flowers and you will see that she made a patchwork of the paterned paper. I hope Linda forgives me because when I took this picture I noticed that the page on the left needs to be rotated so the big flower is growing from the bottom. Sorry Linda.

We had a great time today sharing our pages and completing 5 layouts. We even had time for a quick lunch. Be sure to check them all out and then decide which one is your favorite. It was a hard decision for me. We completed the 10 pages in about 5 or so hours. Each set brought, was cut out and stamped, then we destressed and assembled.
