Saturdays With LeAnn

Hello my friends, and welcome back to the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo blog.  Grab yourself a hot drink and take a look around!  I hope you will be inspired by the many projects that I have to share with you today!  I am not sure about you, but in my neck of the woods, it is already quite chilly.  With weather like this, it is definitely a good time to do some crafting.

Fall Layout By Bea Valint

Can’t you just smell fall in the air?  I am feeling the need to create some fun fall layouts.  It is the perfect time to get started as orange, brown, and golds are on the shelves at the store.  As I have mentioned before, autumn is my favorite time of the year and one of my favorite types of layouts to create.  I just love the rich, beautiful colors of fall!

Bea Valint shares this fabulous fall layout featuring the Heritage collection from Crate Paper.  This creative layout combines color, texture, and all things autumn to accent the beautiful photo.  You can never have too many fall layouts!  Let me take you on over to My Shiny Studio where you will see each step that Bea has taken to create this beautiful autumn layout.

The Cutest Grim Reaper By Michele Boyer

Now don’t you worry, you still have plenty of time to create some fun Halloween cards.  Our friend Michele will give you some fabulous ideas and you will be able to crank out several darling cards in no time at all.  Michele used the fun rubber stamp Bundle Girl from Stamping Bella to create her card.  Don’t you just love this cute little reaper?  I hope this will inspire you to pull out markers and begin creating your spooky Halloween cards.  How fun it will be to put these in the mail and wish a Happy Halloween to your family and friends.

I don’t know about you, but it makes me so happy when I get to sit down and do some stamping and inking.  Take some time and try a few different coloring techniques and see what you can come up with.  I am sure your projects will be fabulous.  I hope you will also take some time and visit her blog Paper Cuts.  You are sure to be inspired by her talent and I know you will really enjoy all of her fabulous projects.

I Don’t Bite… Usually By Emma Williams

Can you just imagine this awesome project created on a canvas, or put in a distressed frame to hang on your wall, or even just sitting on an end table?  How fun it would be to add this to your Halloween decorations.  This project can also be made into a darling Halloween card.  Also, what is fun about this card is that the actual scene is all created on one panel of watercolor.

Emma used the Monster Reunion stamp from the Tim Holtz new release, along with a couple of her older favorite stamps, Mr. Bones and Tangled Webs, to make her spooky scene.  Emma has put a lot of techniques into her project.  I don’t want you to miss out on any part of her process, so let me escort you over to the Stickydots blog where you can see each step she has taken to create this outstanding project.  Step out of your comfort zone and see what your creation will turn out to be; you will be amazed how much fun you will have creating one of your own.

Patterned Pumpkin Roll By Elizabeth LaBau

It’s officially fall, and there is no better way to celebrate than by baking dessert recipes with pumpkin.  This is one gorgeous fall dessert that will be the star of your table!  This yummy pumpkin roll looks a little bit intimidating to make but really it is quite fun to do.  You can’t beat a patterned pumpkin roll with edible leaf decorations.  This couldn’t be more impressive!

This recipe tastes every bit as good as it looks and everyone will love it!  Grab your pencil and paper because this is one recipe you don’t want to miss.  Let’s go on over to Sugar Hero where you will find all the ingredients and detailed directions on how to make this incredible dessert.  Your family and friends will be so impressed and are sure to ask for seconds.

I hope you enjoyed today’s post and have been inspired to give some of these fabulous projects a try.  For additional information on any of them, be sure to stop by the individual blogs.  I have supplied you the links so you can find all the information you need to start creating.  I look forward to giving you more fun ideas so I hope you will return back to our blog soon.  Happy fall, my friends!
