Hi, it's Joan and I'm here today with a Halloween page to share with you. This happens to be one of my favorite photos of my great- nephew, Milo. Isn't he a cute little chicken?!
I used Brainiac papers for most of the mats, the strip, pumpkins and vines. The mat behind the photo was cut from the Racing line. I then pop dotted the owl sticker (from Brainiac) after backing it with a black circle.
I wanted colors to match my photo and the Brainiac and Racing lines were perfect! I also love the fun polka dots!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
From my stash: pumpkins (Spellbinders) & "vines" (Sizzix flourish die)
My kids own a dirt bike, so I was pretty excited when Moxxie's Racing collection included motocross themes in it. This summer my youngest got brave enough to ride the dirt bike all on his own and, of course I had to capture the memory with a layout.
I loved everything about this Motocross piece of paper...from the colors to the great title, so I decided to work around it and make the title the focal point of my layout by building all of my layering pieces off of the title.
There is also a great set of matching stickers which made adding embellishments to the layout really easy.
I love to see a paper theme and twist it. It takes creative thinking to see Christmas paper and scrap summer park pictures with it. Sometimes, scrapping for me is just playtime.
This page uses the new #MOXXIE line RACING. I used the orange B side of the "Racing" paper and cut the black "Motorcross" paper for the base. Then I splashed yellow paint all over and added some random embellishments. This page even leaves room for 3 tags of journaling about my son at this age.
So your challenge- twist you next project. You don't have to play by any rules. No "scrapbook police" will "get you." And have fun with it.
Moxxie's new "Racing" line is super fun! The cool colors and sayings lend itself to many uses! I went with the neon colors on the "Motocross" paper, and the black from the "Speed" paper and made Neon Mice Racing, instead of car racing!!
Of course, it starts out as a regular accordion card, with cut outs for the "Start ~Your ~Engines" cardstock stickers.
But with a piece of bakers twine, I made them able to be flipped to "Go, Caution and Safety!!
Inside, I added a journaling tag from the "Racing Cutouts" sheet. I also cut out the flags from that sheet and attached them to the top.
But on the back, there is a Neon Mice Race going on!! Hundreds came out to see the race! See them all on the top of the card? Tiny little faces, all watching the Neon Mice!!
I hope this makes you want to make something fun too!!
Moxxie created a RACING line that is full of bold color.
What better pics to use then race car pics. But my son doesn't race....or does he?
Looking through some Amusement park pictures, I found these snaps of my boy and his buddy Elyza in a race car ride. Zroom, zoom. He loves this ride and now I love these pictures now that they are paired with such fun colors, papers and elements.
The stickers from this RACING line are seriously fun and easy to use. They do all the decorating for you!

Hey there everyone! It's Renee from Scrap Owl (www.scrapowl.com) with a fun new page using the awesome Moxxie Racing collection. This is a layout I did capturing the excitement of a go-kart rematch between my nephew and myself during our recent vacation. You see, I took him DOWN the first time and he hasn't been able to live with it, so
If you've ever visited my site, you know I'm all about honesty, so I'm going to reveal something to you that I might get in trouble for, but here it goes. I didn't like this line when I first saw it. Nope, it wasn't my favorite. It surely wasn't something that I would have gone into my local scrapbook store and picked out on my own. But, and I think you'll agree, now that I've had a chance to create with it - WOWZA - I'm loving it!
The Racing patterned paper is the foundation for the layout. To add a little bling, I glitzed up the "Racing" design with a little bit of sparkle embossing powder. Then, I matted my photo on the b-side of the Moxxie Motorcross patterned paper and the b-side of another sheet of the Moxxie Racing patterned paper. I layered the pennants from the Racing Cardstock Stickers over the black and white striped washi tape from my stash. This layout is titled "Rematch" using the Moxxie White Alpha Stickers.
Using the b-side from the Moxxie Racing Cutouts, I created the checked flag by cutting a fishtail banner and then wrapping it around a toothpick (and a fancy toothpick at that!). I think the addition of the checkered flag adds some great dimension.
The too cute 3x4 card is also matted using the Moxxie Racing Cutouts b-side. It's funny, but this card perfectly sums up our racing experience! Every time I would get my car going, I would run it into the wall or give it too much gas and have it stall. That's just one more reason why I have started to like this collection more and more. It captures exactly what you feel - it captures the racing experience.
The moral of the story? Try it Mikey, you might just like it! Seriously though, just like that shirt hanging on the hanger in your closet, you aren't going to know if you really like it until you try it on. Sometimes crafting is the same way. You may not know exactly how you are going to use a page right away, but once you add your own sense of design and style, you may just find a side of your crafty talent you didn't know existed.
Good morning! Today I want to share with you a couple of fun cards I made using Moxxie's new line Racing. Having 3 daughters I don't usually get to play with or make boy cards. So I decided to try my hand at a couple. The first one is a Birthday card.
I started out with sheet of 8.5"x11" black cardstock and then just folded it in half (it's a big card lol). I fussy cut the car out of the sheet Speed. The words & banner came from Racing Cardstock Sticker. Then did a bit of pen lines around them to add a finished touch. Then the inside of the card I used White Alphas, a strip from Racing Cutouts, a few stickers from Racing Cardstock Stickers. I fussy cut the car from one of the stickers, here's a close up.
Then for the second card, I used the motocross part of Racing. I made a 4.25"x5.5" card from some Kraft cardstock. I sprayed it and dripped some Heidi Swapp Chartreuse Color Shine and inked the edges with some Time Holtz Vintage Photo Distressing Ink. I used the Motocross sheet to back the Motocrosser from the Racing Cutouts. I did a bit of distressing around it. Wrapped some twine and added a few brads to help balance it out.
