How about a slice of Simple Life?
Hello Friday! This week sure has flown by that's for sure. I am sure we are all busy getting ready for Halloween on Sunday so I thought we'd slow down for a minute today and enjoy a little Simple Life.
First we have a few layouts from Cindy
This is the cutest and I love the craft paper with the yellow!
Here's a fabulous layout from Debbie with an out of the box stitching technique!
Next Debbie created this amazing card with matching gift box. What a sweet treat to give someone special! Here's the outside.
And the card fits inside laying down
And then you POP it up! How cute is this!
And finally some cute cards from Tracy
We hope you enjoyed today's inspiration with our Simple Life collection! We hope you have a Spooktacular Weekend!

Goodbye to our October Guest Designer Emily Pitts!
It's Guest Designer Thursday and we'd like say a special thanks to our October Guest Designer Emily Pitts. We've had a great time being inspired by Emily's designs all month long!
Today I have a special treat for you from Nicole Wregge. Here's a peek at a mini album she created with the Cute as a Button collection.
Love the girly bling added to the cover
And that beautiful purple stitching!
I love how she used Glaze over the chipboard. I am quite fond of Ranger's Glossy Accents for this technique.
The Cute as a Button Cardstock stickers are easy to coordinate with this collection and Nicole did a beautiful job.
Thanks a for a peek at this fabulous project Nicole!

Monday more fun with Green
Hello there! Hope you had a great weekend! We'd like to share some more projects with you using our Green collection today.
First here are some cards from Susan
And from Beckie this beautiful layout
I love how she cut a border strip and wrapped it with some raffia
And even more Green layouts from Pamela!
Love how she did her journaling to look like the wind!!! We challenge you to try this technique on your next My Little Shoebox layout. Make sure you post it to our Facebook page so we can see your take on Pamela's fun technique.
This layout is so fun with the die cut leaves. Pamela added stitching to them to really make them jump off her page.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope something here will inspire you to get out your Green collection and create something fun!

Guest Designer Thursday
Hello there! It's Guest Designer Thursday and we've got some more inspiration to share with you today from October's Guest Designer
Today we're sharing some of her cards!
I love using up my scrap and sticker stash to create quick cards and Emily created some really cute ones!
Emily cut out these birds and arranged them on cardstock to create an encouragement card.
I love the way Emily popped out the dots on this card and used chipboard to create the sentiment and did some pleating with the paper. There are so many beautiful elements here.
We've had fun showing you Emiy's inspiring work this month. Be sure to visit her blog for more of her designs and inspiration!

A fabulous fabric banner!
Hello! Creating with fabric on layouts, cards and altered items is becoming quite a trend! Who else but Design Team member Erin Payne would pick up on that trend right away! Erin used fabric and mists to create a fabric banner to embellish this layout.
Look at the fun stitching she did here!
and speaking of Harmony...here's a couple of cute cards also created by Erin.
And even a little more Harmony inspiration from Design Team member Hilde
Love this beautiful card!
And this adorable altered mini!!! Here's a look at some of the pages. I love the black accents around the clear pages
I love the way Hilde used coordinating journaling die cuts and cardstock stickers to embellish this super cute book.
