Halloween Scene Dies and School Treats

Hello Friends!

Whew, what a week!  I cut over 1300 pieces of cardstock getting ready for upcoming classes.  I sure gave my paper cutters a work out.

I also prepped to make 75 of these cute Halloween Treats for our Grandsons to take to school for their classmates and teachers.


Last night the Grandsons and I started doing them.  I bought some eyeball chocolates and some mini rollos and we put them in a tiny zip bag.  Then we will be adding the tag as you see it.  They will write their names on the back of them.

These Grandsons LOVE Halloween, and the middle one has his birthday a couple of days before Halloween.  This year he wants an Eyeball / Lego party!

The new Halloween Scenes Edgelits dies are just perfect for whipping up the components of the tags.  Its a lot of cutting with the Big Shot, but I figure if we do a few each time they are here we will get them done.  You can also bundle it with the Spooky Fun stamp set and save 10%!


Would love to see what you are doing for Halloween!  Leave a comment below ....

World Card Making Day - Sat. Oct 1, 2016

Hello Friends

Everyone loves to get mail the old fashioned way - by "snail mail".  We all have mail boxes in one form or another, but they sure don't get used like they used to.

Mail these days is usually bills or junk mail.  It saddens me to think of people who have given up on sending cards to friends, loved ones, and random acts of kindness (RAK), and turned to social media.

Anyone can wish you a Happy Birthday online, but only a special person will take the time to make a card, address it, attach a postage stamp, and slip it into a mail box just for you.

This Saturday, October 1st, is World Card Making Day.  I challenge each of you to put a card into the mail and reach out to someone you have not seen for a while, or someone who needs a pick me up, or maybe someone who has a birthday this (or next) week.  I usually mail out 10-15 cards each week.  Some are Thank Yous, some are Birthdays, some are Thinking Of You, and some are just for the fun of it.  Try it, and get back into the habit of sending cards in the mail again.

Today I have a video for you by Stampin' Up! on World Card Making Day ....



Here's a card I made for my hubby, Ted, for our 40th Wedding Anniversary ...


Leave a message below, or EMAIL ME, and let me know how many cards you mailed between now (Tues Sept 27) and Saturday!

Halloween Treat Box

Hello Friends!

Each year I have fun with our local Grandsons making Halloween projects for their school and class mates.

This year we are making clear boxes, decorating and filling them with non sugary treats.  This box has mini Doritos in it, but we will probably be using Bits 'n Bites again.



I am not the originator of this fabulous idea, I saw it online somewhere and did not right down the artist.  If you know who it is, please EMAIL ME so I can give proper credit.  It was used as inspiration to create my own version.  Have to make it not too difficult for the wee hands that will be helping me.  A complete supply list is below my signature.

CLICK HERE to go to my online store to see the products and / or place an online order. The Host Code this month is QKXPUZFC.  If you use it when placing an order, I will send you a surprise in the mail.

September Monthly Stampin' Club Cards

Hello Friends!

Forgive my late post, we went to the fall fair last night and I did not get my post done.

Each month the Monthly Stampin' Club gets together in my studio and we create two great projects. I try to do at least one technique and one fun project.

This month we did the Telescoping Card Technique.  I was recently at a friend's stamping studio for a "play date" with another friend.  We are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators and love to get together and be pampered for a day.  When we go to each others craft spaces, the one who hosts usually preps a couple of projects for us to do.  It is just like going to a class, and we had a blast.  There is usually food involved too, of course.

Here is the card we did that day, thanks Mi Ran Bigrigg for the great technique.


To do this technique, you stamp your image on a 3x3 piece of whisper white cardstock. Then using two of the Layering Squares dies by Stampin' Up! you cut the stamped image in 3 pieces.  The largest layer is adhered flat to the card front.  The middle layer is popped up on one layer of Dimensionals, and the center layer is up on two layers of Dimensionals.  We also did some sponging to further separate the layers.

The other card we did was created by another friend, fellow Demonstrator, and fellow play date attendee, Barb Tripps.


This uses the Floral Phrases bundle (pg 77 Annual Catalogue #142355 $56.50 Canadian).  Don't you just love the Night of Navy / White combination?  It's one of my favourites.

Email me if you would like to order these supplies by Stampin' Up!

Video Share - Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder

Hello Friends!

One of my FAVOURITE products in the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue is the Dynamic Embossing Folder "Cable Knit".

It looks and feels so much like the "fisherman knit sweaters" I used to knit.  When you use this embossing folder you just want to pick it up and touch it ..... a LOT!

Here's the video for you ....



Because this embossing folder is much, much thicker than the normal ones, you only use one of the clear cutting mats with it.  Please watch the video to find out all the tips and tricks.

I will be sharing cards using this embossing folder real soon.

Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends!

Every time Stampin' Up! comes out with a pack of Designer Paper that is created for the "emboss resist" technique, I jump right in and order it, and this package is no exception.


I sponged some of the new 2016-18 In Colours on this piece for the card front.  I used Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.  When doing this technique, you sponge the colours on in a circular motion using quite a bit of pressure.  Start with the lightest colour, and work to the darkest.  Make sure you leave lots of white space when you put on the first colour, then fill in a bit of it with the second, and finally fill in the remaining white space with the last colour.  Some colours are ok if you overlap them, but some with go "muddy" and you don't want that, so test them on a scrap of card stock first.  When doing this you may have to reink your sponge and go over that section a few times to get the depth of colour you are looking for.

Once you have sponged the whole piece, get a soft tissue and wipe over the entire thing again. This will remove any excess ink that is clinging onto the embossed (white) pattern.  There you have it, a wonderful background for any card.  And you can do any colour combination you want.

I finished this card off with the Botanical Garden dies and used the same colours as the ink, with an addition of Pear Pizzazz for the leaves.  Some White Perfect Accents finished it off.  The circular die cut strip behind the flowers is from the Flourish dies, another great set from the Annual Catalogue. You will find all the supplies listed below.  Thanks for visiting!
