Hello! I've decided to close Scrappin N Style and a start a new blog from scratch. It's been fun learning the ins and outs of blogging, but now that I've been doing it a while I wanted to create a blog that fit me and was exactly what I wanted. You can find the new blog at
Life of a Crafty Diva
I have three Father's Day cards up right now and a new post will be up on Monday. I hope you will stop by and continue to follow. Thanks for all your support!

Happy fall! We are finally experiencing our first real fall weather this week. We've had lots of wind a rain off and on for the past couple of days, along with random hail and snow in the higher elevations. I'm hoping it will let up this weekend long enough for me to take the boys to the pumpkin patch though. So, with Halloween just around the corner I have some fun Cricut Halloween cards to share with you today. They were made with the Happy Hauntings and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridges. The first one is a vintage looking witch silhouette. I used Distress Stain to age the background paper and copper ink on the frame. The spider web ribbon is from Michael's and I just love it.
The second card is the cute little mummy from Paper Doll Dress Up. He is one of my favorite Cricut images! The tombstones I inked and then painted with Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy. The spooky tree I used Rock Candy Distress Stickles and drew in some spiders and webs.
The last card is my favorite. Theses spooky pumpkins are from Happy Hauntings. The background was done with Distress Inks and bat stamps from Lawn Fawn.
I hope you enjoyed the cards today and thanks for stopping by!

Hello! Hope you all are enjoying your week. We have had beautiful indian summer weather here. It has been in the mid 70's to low 80's for the past few days, which is VERY unusual for our area. I am NOT enjoying not having a regular internet connection however. That is the reason for my absence on the blog as of late. I hope you will still continue to stop by and I will still be posting as often as possible.
Today I have a lovely tag t share with you. It's very soft and feminine and has roses made with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. I also used the mini butterfly die and one of his embossing folders with the new diffusing plates (which are fabulous) to create the embossed oval on the tag. If for some crazy reason you are not a fan of the Tim Holtz products, you really should try them. They are not just a big hype, they truly are some of my favorite products I own and the most used.
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your week!
