Christmas Mini Scrapbook Album Kit with Echo Park's Christmas Cheer

If you know me, or follow my blog, you know I'm a huge Lori Whitlock fan.  Not only does she design fabulous goodies for Echo Park Paper Co., Sizzix, etc.... but her SVG cutting files are just adorable.  For my latest mini album kit, I decided to use the Christmas collection she created for EP, as well as one of her new Santa cutting files.  I just love how he peeks through the window on this one :)

The first run of the mini album kit is available in my shop now!

This album would make a wonderful gift for a friend, or just to keep all your December Daily, Christmas, tree-decorating, gift-opening, santa-visiting pictures in! It would even be a great teacher, hostess, or Baby's First Christmas gift!  The album is a great size to display on a shelf or coffee table during the holidays, or to carry in your purse to share with friends.  And you can't deny this Santa is CUTE!

Silhouette Glass Etching Tutorial

I just love October -- the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and the opportunity to create fun Halloween and fall projects.  I made this Halloween treat jar by etching the Trick or Treat phrase into the glass using etching cream and my CAMEO machine.  A full tutorial can be viewed over on Lori Whitlock's blog today. 

Please visit Lori's blog today for links to the cutting files I used and to get some easy tips on etching your own glass project.

Thanks for stopping by!

October Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team

Welcome to Artsy Albums and your next stop on Lori Whitlock's October Blog Hop!  If you're starting here, be sure to head over to Lori's site to go to the beginning. And if all of that's not fun enough, Lori is also having a Sale and a Freebie!

For my project today I decided to create a 12x12 layout about my cute little nieces at the pumpkin patch. 

I was inspired by a layout I saw on Pinterest by someone.  Her page was a digital layout but I was inspired by the way she "carved" up her pumpkin into different sections.  I created my version with my CAMEO and I'll have a tutorial up on Lori's blog on October 23 to show you how I did this.

Here is a list of Lori's designs that I used for this layout:
