Joyful Stars Blog Hop - October 2016

Welcome to the Joyful Stars blog hop for the month of October if you've arrived from Debi's blog you're in the right place.  For a complete list of all the hoppers this month go to Joyce's blog

October is my favorite month because my son's birthday is this month and my favorite holiday- Halloween.  BOO!!  Outside the leaves are falling, the temperature is cool and I'm nice and cozy inside scrapping some pages with the new Swan Lake collection from Close To My Heart.  Although this paper packet is fall themed with acorns and golden colors, I felt like it matched perfectly not only with Thanksgiving but a fancy Great Gatsby themed party.  I just loved the swans and the gold foil accents that really bring this packet to life.  That's the beauty of our papers.  They have so many possibilities!  Don't think of them as tied to a particular event or theme. Think out of the box and shake things up!  You never know what you'll come up with :)  Here's my take on the Workshop Your Way layouts and cards...




This month I've also created some spooky single page kits they're all precut and just need a little assembling and some fun photos.

Now hop on over to Betty's blog and continue on the hop I'm sure you'll enjoy all of the fabulous new ideas we have to show you this month!

Happy Crafting! :)

  1. Beautiful job Stephanie! ;) I wasn't sure I would be crazy over Swan Lake, but like you said -I've used it for so many more projects than fall...it is very versatile! :) TFS!

  3. I love that you include photos on your layouts. So many consultants don't include the pictures and in my opinion they just don't seem finished. Beautiful cards too!

  6. I love that you put your photos into the WYW layouts. It really shows how nice the layouts look completed. They look unfinished when I display them without photos.
