Time for Gifts layout

Hello Everybody!

There is a new 1 page sketch at Stick It Down.  Go by so that you can see all of the lovely versions of this one sketch.  Here is mine:


Most of these papers are from a Recollections (Michaels) Christmas paper pad.  The papers around the picture-1 is a digi Echo Park that I printed out and the black printed paper is from K&Company.  The red foil brackets are Thickers.  And the Dear Santa is a cameo from Webster.

Here is a closeup:


Anytime I can use my hexagon punch is a good day :)  Here is the sketch--hope to see you there!


Until next time my friends...keep on scrappin'! ;)

Cute Halloween Card

Hello Everybody!

At House of Cards this month we are all about die cuts!  I'm on the Cute team so here is what I came up with:


This cute bear in a costume is from the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge.  This cartridge is one of my favorites-there are so many great images!

The twine is Maya Arts, the word stickers are Tim Holtz, and the papers on the background and behind the bear are from DCWV.  

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope we see your card!

Until next time my friends, have a bear-ific day! ;)

Favorite Friday-Halloween Project

Hello Everybody!

Whew!  It's Friday (yay!) and it's time to celebrate our Favorite Halloween Project at Scrap It Girl!  (Double Yay!)

First let me say I love Halloween.  Second let me say I love most of what I make (LOL! I do!).  So to pick a favorite Halloween project-well I had it narrowed down to 3.  They are like my children!  So I chose this pumpkin.  I love this pumpkin because it's easy to make (if you like making punches) but is impactful.  I love 3-d paper things.


This is one of my faves too.  It's from Oct 2011.  That seems so crazy!  It's before my hubby bought me a photo box.  Ahh...my early days in blogging.  :)  It's a tri-fold display.  I used a paper bag as the structure.  The ghost is made from a target bag.  


Here are 2 more favorites.  I recently made this with Great Impressions Stamps.  I love pop out cards!


My last favorite is this card.  It one in a Moxie Fab Challenge.  I love these little trick or treaters by MME.  :)


Be sure to stop by and see the rest of the teams favorite Halloween projects.  And be sure to share yours!

Until next time my friends...This is Halloween! :)


Friday Fun with Great Impressions!

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn at the Great Impressions Blog to show you a creation using stamps from the Great Impressions Store.


I used these stamps to create this card:  E551 Too Cute Pumpkins and D330 Happy Thanksgiving.

I used a Tim Holtz Stencil (and that's his Crackle paper for the base).  I mixed So Safron Stampin Up re-inker with light modeling paste to create the spots.  I used Martha Stewart glitter around the circle.  (I really have been wanting to use glitter.  Yay!)  I colored to the pumpkins with Stampin Up stamps.

The sentiment-I cut out and put on the Tim Holtz mover/shaker shape.  Then I added 2 brads and pop dotted it.  

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I am truly thankful for you guys!  Thank you for the sweet comments also!

Until next time my friends...let's get a pumpkin latte! ;)

Paint it Black!

Hello Everybody!

Today it is my turn at the Unique Laser Designs Blog, and I have a refurbished project to show you today.

I bought this mail sorter at a garage sale.  It's nice like it is...


But it is so much better in black!


You can order Happy Birthday from the online store but the other two were custom made.  But I couldn't stop this project here.  Each side is decorated also.

Here I painted daisies and a heart.  I glue all of the pieces on with gloss gel medium by Liquitex.  The flowes here remind me of mums.  Yay fall!


Here is the other side.  I used a watering can and chubby daisies (with one regular daisy).  The water drops are from Recollections (similar to Robin's Nest).


Here is a closeup of the water can.  I painted it red and used my finger to apply Star Dust Stickles to it.


Here is a closeup of the flowers being watered.  I used rhinestones and ric rac to complete them.


I am submitting this project to the challenge going on at Lessology: challenge #41 Beautiful Scenery.  The side with the watering can watering flowers creates a nice scene. :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by the Unique Laser Designs store to check out all of the wood embellishments!  

Until next time my friends...just paint it black! ;)

Friday Fun with Great Impressions!

Hello Everybody!

It's my turn at Great Impressions Blog, and I have made another Halloween card!  I love love LOVE this spooky house!  :)  I also love Halloween! :)

The stamps I used are: F561 Halloween House, C406 Little Ghost, and A134 Halloween Greetings.

I used a Martha Stewart punch for the spider web and then 2 ribbons.  The candy corn is a button and some light and dark orange bling from Recollections.  I used dusty concord, spiced marmalade, and mustard seed distress inks on the Halloween house.  The house is pop up with pop dots and the ghost is tucked underneath it.


 The background paper is from DCWV and it already came embossed with a spider web.  I used black soot to bring out the design.


Be sure to stop by the blog to see lots of Halloween and Harvest inspiration.  You can also check us out on Facebook

Until next time my friends...happy hauntings! ;)
