Lori Whitlock Creative Team October 2020 Blog Hop

Hi there! Welcome to the Lori Whitlock October blog hop! The order this month is Traci, Kathy, Anita, Brandie, Aimee, Ashley, Cori, Michelle, and Marcia. 

Today I am sharing the cute new Jack O Lantern box card (SVG, Silhouette). This little card is a cute way to wish someone a happy Halloween and brighten their day. It comes together easily and folds flat for mailing. 

I used the I Love Halloween collection by Echo Park Paper Co.

October Mini Album 10/5

 Hi there crafty friends! We made it to October! Woohoo! Time for cooler weather, pumpkin everything, and spooky fun. The last few years I have created an October daily album for all the cute fun things I have done with my family. Since this year will be scaled back I wanted to create smaller version of an October daily. I used the Circular Pop Up Card (SVG, Silhouette) for a October mini album. (I used pictures from last year for an example.)

I used my sewing machine to stich around all of the cover panels. As I glued the cover panels on I left the tops open to create pockets for tags and extra pictures.

The papers, stickers, and embellishments are from the I Love Halloween collection by Echo Park Paper Co. 

I hope you are able to enjoy this Fall season and get a little crafting done. Thanks for stopping by.

A2 Insert Card Ideas

Hi there friends! Brandie here with a few ideas for some of the new insert cards in Lori's shop. There is lots of options, endless possibilities, and they are so quick and easy to assemble.  I used the A2 Insert Card Mandala (SVG, Silhouette), A2 Insert Card Flower Spray (SVG, Silhouette), and the A2 Insert Card Cut and Fold Butterfly 4 (SVG, Silhouette).

Once you have the images uploaded in Cricut Design Space you will have to decide which version you want to use. There are three. I used the folded card with the insert.


I ungrouped the images and deleted the flat card version and front cuts version. I also changed the middle score line from a cut to a score line. 

I folded the cards at the score line then tucked the insert into the card from the back (inside).  

I used white cardstock for the base of all three cards. I used a papers from the I Love Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper for the flower spray card and the butterfly card. I painted the flower spray card with watercolors. For the butterfly card I added sequins to middle of each butterfly for some sparkle.  I used distress oxide inks and gold paint on white cardstock to create the color blend for the mandala card. 

These cards really are so quick to assemble, look great as is or embellished, and will make the recipient so happy. That's it for me today. Thanks for stopping by!
