It’s the Great Halloween Sale at ForeverJoy!

Ok- if you’ve been following along with me this month, I think it’s no secret that I seriously love this time of year, especially Halloween! I have always loved spooky stories and all things supernatural, but I think what really draws me to feeling so happy this time of year is that it’s just simple silly fun.  There’s no pressure for shopping, no real budget busters, other than candy, no mandatory stuffy parties, no pressure to make it the most magical time of the year. Instead, the air is crisp, the leaves are bursting in full bloom, pumpkins flicker on every porch and everyone is in a great mood, laughing, spooking, and handing out candy!
Today kicks off the official Halloween Bash at the shoppe– and not only is everything “tricky” on scary good sale  but there is tons of fun to be had at the Lilypad! There is a free kit with your purchase of $15 or more at the shoppe, a fun Instgram Loop where you can win a $31 gift certificate to the shoppe and lots of chats, scraps and inspiration! 

I’ve designed something NEW for the celebration to help stretch your holiday stash: a set of TEN 12×12 mats that can be used as cutting files or clipping masks! They are in PNG , SVG and DXF format- and I know you are going to love them! I couldn’t help myself and made a few paper layouts, and the creative team went crazy over them using them in their digital scrapbooking!

Here are a few of the files cut out- I loved the fact that I could use my “B-List” stash papers as cut files- I had no guilt about making a few goofs and trying new techniques- and used up a few inches of my hoard  supplies.  You can read a little more about this liberation here. 
One of my favorite ways to use these files is as stencils for paint, mists and glitter!





what joy will you create today?

Crafting the JOY and “meh” of Winter

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. Come November 1 after all the pumpkin spice palooza- I can’t wait to cozy things up with knits and layers and all things comfy-cozy, and then comes the magic of the holidays, the thrill of the first snow and the delight of slow cooked dinners and nights by […]

The Joy of Challenges

After the holidays where we give so much of ourselves to others, January gives us a welcome chance to look inward and see how we can refill our own buckets.  It’s also the time of year at the Lilypad when we host a “Month of Challenges”  where each day a different memory keeping challenge is […]

Jump start your layouts | looking backwards

It’s been said that photographs are a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. I love that thought. Because, if we can return to a time- then it’s never really lost is it? Not to us, or to anyone who can see and read and feel what that image means to us. We can tell […]

Simplifying December with Traveler’s Notebooks

Especially this time of year, when there are so many stories to be captured- I wanted to make it a point to scrap more often- to tell more stories- but in a simpler way. I love Project Life- and I am a big fan of mini books. It’s only natural then that my attention has […]
