It's NEW RELEASE WEEK at La-La Land Crafts and there are some fantastic stamps, dies, papers and a stencil set that are perfect for the holidays coming up!!   I'll be sharing some cards over the next 3 days but you can check out the whole October release HERE .   This card started out as a mini slimline card... and then I cut my folded card with the banner die, extending it so it would be the 6" tall.  Everything on this card is from our NEW release except the snowflakes and sentiment label.  But they are all available in the shop ☺ I left the inside blank for writing or stamping a message: PRODUCTS:  Deck the Halls Clear Stamp Set Here Comes Santa Paper Pack Large Banner Die Christmas Bell Die Three Snowflakes Die Scalloped Sentiment Labels Die -Copic Markers- Skin: R11, 00, E51 Feathers: C3, 7, 9 Pink Hat/Sweaters: RV02, 04, 06 BG Hat/Scarf: BG11, 15 Wreath/Presents: RV02, 06, BG11, 15, YG93, 95 Hop on over to the  La-La Land Crafts BLOG  or our   FB

Dancing Feet Treat Box & Card

Happy Monday crafty friends! Today I have a couple of interactive cards and treat box using the new CottageCutz dies from the latest  Halloween Release  at The Scrapping Cottage which are currently 30% OFF the individual dies  so hurry on over!! I started by making 2 "Dancing Feet" cards but then I decided to make a fun Candy Box, with the dancing legs/feet on the front!  They are both easy to make and I'll show you how! (here they are in action) How FUN are these?!!  For my projects today, I used the Witch Legs , Witch Hat , Trick or Treat Phrase , and the spider is from the Spooky Truck die from the New Release.   I also used the Wacky Stitched Rectangles the Pierced Wide Circle Frame die set and the Pierced Circles set. Let's Start with the Card: 1)  I started with my card base then attached each of the following layers: White card base = top folding card, 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" Plaid paper mat = 5-1/4" x 4" Purple paper mat = 4-7/8" x 3-5

Truckin' Birthday Wishes

The Scrapping Cottage has a huge  Halloween Release out right now ... but because of the way they are designed, you can easily create with them for ANY reason during the year !!   I wanted to show how versatile these dies can be, so my card today is Fall Birthday themed with cute kitties, but I've actually used the Spooky Truck die , Spooky Kitties , and the Halloween Victorian Gate die !  As you can see, the kitties are too CUTE to be spooky, and this truck is perfect for masculine cards any time of year! ☺   Be sure to stop by  the Scrapping Cottage BLOG   to see much more inspiration from my teammies!

Happy OWLoween!

This week at La-La Land Crafts, our design team created with the theme:   HALLOWEEN (or shall I say... OWL-oween! 🤣)  I have to admit, I was stumped!  I don't have Halloween stamps, so I got creative with stencils & dies.  I had this really cool  Cave Die ,  and I thought what a  hoot  it would be to use the   Owl Builder Die  and create kindof a spooky sky background!  Then... (and this is the cool part)... I thought I would make the owl swing from the top!!  I got that idea from recently seeing Sam Calcott's video  here .  I did make some adjustments - I did not use her die set, I just hand cut & punched my own for the mechanism, but it's so easy and totally works!  Swings pretty well too, I might add!  Design Steps: 1.  I started with a black Top folding square card base that is 5-1/2".   I then die cut the largest die from the  Cave Die  set from the card front. 2.  I decided to add a lil stenciling on the front so I used white craft (Pigment) ink and the
