The Guest Designer for Halloween week is Lisa Kisch!
Lisa lives in Toronto, Canada, with her husband and her two little girls. She works as a stage actress and singer, but loves staying at home with her kids just as much! She loves documenting everyday life through scrapbooking. Little moments that would otherwise be forgotten are her passion! Lisa loves photography and learns more about using her camera every day. She is a very slow scrapper, but occasionally challenges herself to complete several layouts in an evening.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I started scrapbooking with a Scrapbooks 101 class at my local scrapbook store, soon after my wedding in 2003. Although it took me two years to complete that album - I never looked back!
What is your favorite American Crafts product? Oh, Thickers, of course! I can never get enough!
No matter what I do in my life, I know it always comes back to my husband and my kids. This layout is an expression of that! I cut tags to match the size of the Garden Cafe tags, to create a tone on tone background for my layout.

I would never had considered using a black piece of paper for the background, but the whimsical dotted border on this piece of Nightfall paper changed my mind! It made the perfect background for my sparkly witch. If you look closely, you can see that I printed my journaling on the twill Nightfall ribbon. To do this I printed my journaling, affixed the ribbon on top, then ran it through my printer again!

When I saw the "Fall Foliage" paper with its orange grid it seemed perfectly suited for a grid card. It was so easy to just fill those spaces with squares of patterned paper and a "Delight" in the centre!

Here's a little treat bag to hang on someone's door. Maybe it's for a teacher or the babysitter! I used a wine cork from my junk drawer to add polka dots to a plain paper bag and cut fringe into my circle embellishment to give it a little texture.
