My Little Shoebox Trick or Treat Blog Hop!

Welcome!  If you've arrived here from Rocio's blog, you're in the right place!  If you happened to have come here first, I encourage you to hop over to the beginning of the blog hop on the My Little Shoebox blog and follow the blog hop in order so that you don't miss out on any of the fabulous inspiration, tricks, and treats :)

Here's the complete blog hop line up:

MLS's new Trick or Treat collection makes it really easy to whip out several cute cards in very little time.  I was able to make this set of three cards in the amount of time that it usually takes me to make just one.

Aren't those patterned papers cute?  And how stinkin' adorable are those kids in their costumes?!  Those are simply cardstock stickers that I adhered with foam tape!  The glitter alphabet stickers coordinate perfectly and add just the right amount of bling.  My little Allison will be sending these cards off to her cousins for Halloween.

My Little Shoebox products used:
Trick or Treat Patterned Paper - Itsy Bitsy Spider
Trick or Treat Patterned Paper - Fright Night (B-side)
Trick or Treat Patterned Paper - Monster Crossing (B-side)
Trick or Treat Patterned Paper - Starry Night (B-side)
Trick or Treat Cardstock Stickers
Glitter Alphabet Stickers - Black Diamond

Other products used:
cardstock (kraft, black)

I'm excited to offer a fun treat as a thank-you for stopping by!  Just leave me a comment on this post by Sunday night at midnight PST and you'll be entered to win a set of the MLS Trick or Treat collection papers and a set of papers from the MLS new release collection of your choice!

Before you hop away, you might want to take note of my secret letter, E.

Okay, prepare to be inspired as you hop on over to the blog of my very talented and sweet MLS teammate and friend, Erin Yamabe!

First Time at the Park

Hi everyone!  If you stopped by yesterday you may recall my mentioning that My Little Shoebox recently participated in a super fun product swap with Imaginisce.

For this layout I paired up MLS's adorable Garden Party collection with Imaginisce's i-rock tool and glam rocks.  I'm telling ya, that i-rock tool is quickly becoming one of this girl's best friends!

Thanks for stopping by today :)  Come back tomorrow for a MLS blog hop with giveaways!

A Penny For Your Thoughts

For the month of June, My Little Shoebox participated in a super fun product swap with Imaginisce.  It was a wonderful month of creating for me because I got to pair one of my favorite MLS collections, Garden Party, with Imaginisce's i-rock tool, bling, and flowers.  What a fabulous combination!

Here's one of the layouts that I made with the above mentioned products.  I could sure get used to using that i-rock tool!

I hope you'll come by tomorrow to see more of my work using these products :)

Pebbles Projects

Hi Everyone!  Today I'd like to share the projects that I submitted for the recent Pebbles design team call.  I didn't make the team, but I have these 4 projects to cherish and I may try again next year :)  In the meantime, I'm looking forward to being inspired by Pebbles' new team.

The outfit in the above photo is from Rebel Daisy Designs.  Krista, the owner, has several adorable tutus, halloween outfits, and hairbows available in her etsy shop.

The above wall hanging is actually my favorite project to date.  I have it hanging on Allison's bedroom door.  I think she likes it, too, because she often reaches for it as we enter or exit her bedroom :)

Thanks for stopping by!
