Lori Whitlocks Creative Team September Blog Hop



Hi there and welcome to the Creative team blog hop! We are so glad you are here. Here is the order this month.  Kathy, Anita, Brandie, Brigit, Michelle, Aimee, Ashley, Cathy and Cori.


I may have skipped right over the Fall d├ęcor and headed right for Halloween! I love how this wreath turned out. I used the 6 Fall leaves 2 cut file. (SVG, Silhouette) After the leaves were cut out I shaped them a little and then hot glued them to my grapevine wreath. I also added some orange glitter ball filler and knotted black tulle for texture.  



This wreath could easily made with fall color papers and would be adorable. Thanks for hopping along with us today. Brigit is up next. Also be sure to enter the giveaway and check out all the new images in Loris shop!

Haunted House Box Card with Brandie

Hi there friends!  I am hosting a Halloween party this year and all the Halloween crafts came out early! I love this little haunted house and knew it would make the perfect invitation for the party.



The cut file is called Shaped Box Card Haunted House. You can find it in Lori's store and in Silhouette store.

The card has a few small parts so I recommend using a fine line bottle for gluing. I also used a ruler to make sure my windows lined up with each other, although wonky windows would be cute too! I used pop dots on the ghost, spider and porch roof. To finish everything off I added some Wink of Stella to a few places on the card.



The designer papers are from the Echo Park Bewitched collection.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Tag Mini Album Tutorial


Hi there crafty friends! I am over on Lori Whitlock's blog today sharing this tutorial. 


I know this project isn't anything we haven't all already seen before, but it is a great reminder of all the great basic shapes Lori has available.



I used several cut files. 12 Tags (SVG, Silhouette) Tag Mini Album (SVG, Silhouette) Pine Trees (SVG, Silhouette) Fill Life with Adventures (SVG, Silhouette) and Fish (SVG, Silhouette).

Once I ha everything uploaded I resized everything to fit 3.5 x 2.5 inch picture. I wanted some varying sizes on the tags so I made some a little smaller and some a little bigger. 


I got everything cut out and glued the tag pieces together. I cut 12 tags and printed 36 pictures so I needed a way to include a few picture on each tag. 


On a couple of the tags I stacked 3 or 4 pictures together, punched a hole in the top left corner, inserted a brad, then flipped the tag over and added washi tape to the prongs so that I wont have to worry about snags or tearing on the next tag.



Another way to add several picture to a tag is to create a washi tape hinge. Place a strip of washi tape at the top of each picture, stack the pictures in a cascade, turn over and adhere to the tag, flip each picture over and apply another strip of washi tape to the back of the picture.


Embellish each tag. I used stickers, washi tape, die cuts, word strips, and twine. I also did a little mixed media on a few of the tags for added texture.


I printed the Fill life with adventures not things on a transparency and placed it on top of a group picture.







The patterned papers and ephemera are from the Gone Camping Collection by Carta Bella. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Lori Whitlocks July Creative Team Blog Hop



Hi there and Welcome to the July Blog Hop!
Our blog line up this month is Lori, Kathy, Brandie, Brigit, and Ashley.

I am sharing the Twist Pop Card Back to School. (SVG, Silhouette) I can't believe it is already back to school season in my area! I love seeing all the new school supplies in the stores and have a hard time not buying a box of crayons for my little guy every time I go shopping. I'm sure I will end up with one box before it all goes away.






I used the new Echo Park Back to School collection for my papers and embellishments. This collection is darling with its bright colors and fun images.


Thanks for hopping along with us today! Bright is up next. Also be sure to check out all the new images and deals at Loris store today!

Lori Whitlock June Creative Team Blog Hop



Hi there and welcome to the June blog hop! The order for the hop this month is Kathy, Anita, Brandie, Brigit, Michelle, Aimee, and Ashley.

Today I am sharing one of the new Never Ending Hexagon Cards (SVG, Silhouette). This card can be a little tricky but once you get the hang of it, it is really fun! I had to watch the video tutorial a few times to figure how to open the card to the next page. My tips are watch the video a few times, cut two card bases and practice opening the card, and lastly go slow. You'll get it!


For embellishing I used thin flat stickers so as not to add bulk.


This card would be fun to send to a teenage niece or nephew.


Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out all the great deals happening over on Lori's site. Brigit is up next on the hop! Have a great day!
