Halloween goodies!

Now that Rhalynn is in school I actually have a place to send all of the goodie bags I like to make.

I made the base of the bag topper with paper from the Targer $1 spot. They were pre-cut photo mats that I just folded in half. The tags are cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more I then stamped them with Studio G stamps. I stamped "Happy Haunting in black then used Stickles. I stamped the "Trick or Treat with Studio G green metalic ink that I found at Joann's. The ghost, mummy, skeleton and furry monster were all cut from Paper Doll Dress Up, I inked them up some and added googlie eyes.

Sorry for the bad pics, I think my camera is possesed.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love Halloween!

I've been super busy making Halloween stuff so I haven't posted in awhile. I'll be posting lots of goodies over the next couple of days (I hope). But

Right now I have another Halloween card that I did. I used a wood mounted Studio G for the "happy halloween". The web was cut with my Expression from the Paper Doll Dress Up cart and the spider was cut from the Doodlecharms cart.

Happy Monday!

Anthony the girls and I had a wonderful weekend!! Saturday we went to the Ohio Reniassance Festival. The girls had a great time seeing all the people in costume.

Then on Sunday we headed over to Beavercreek for the Popcorn Festival. Rhalynn loves popcorn so she was super excited. We didn't stay long because the girls and I were getting hot and cranky. We did discover that Beavercreek has a wonderful park and playground. I'm guessing that we'll be going back to play there again.

Well on to the crafty stuff.

Both of these cards were done with the Christmas solutions cart and my trusty Expression.

Have a scrappy day!!

Two more Christmas cards!

Here are two more Christmas cards that I did with my wonderful Cricut Expression. Wish that I could get some better pictures but I either got showdow or the light glaring.

Let me know what you think. I love love love comments.

Have a scrappy day!

Two cards last night!

I finally got to use my new scrapping space. (Pics of that will have to wait until I can get the girls side of the room clean). I made two Halloween cards last night. They are basically the same just different sentiments.

I used Core'dinations in my Cuttlebug. I used the Fiskers embossing spiderweb plate and think it turned out quite well. I've had the Fiskers for awhile and never used them so when I bought my Cuttlebug recently I searched YouTube for a video. I found several different "sandwiches" and they all seem to work quite well.

After I embossed the Core'dination I took a regular fingernail file and sanded it down a little. The color underneath is the same green as the spider. The spider is from the Doodlecharms cart, with googlie eyes. The "candyland" and "boo to you" were random stickers that I found in my stash. I think I got them at WM last year after Halloween.

I of course used my MS Drippy Goo punch and my brand spankin' new MS Web corner punch. The sentiments are from some wood monted $1 stamps from JA's.

Hope that everyone has a scrappy day!!

Christmas cards as far as the eye can see....

I've been working on Christmas cards since early summer and I've finially finished all of mine. YEA!!!! I still have a few to do for my Mom but now I have a great system and can turn them out in now time.

I'm posting my latest and favorite one. I made 12 of these. I usually only make about 6 but I just loved them so much I had to make more.

The hat, tree and candy cane are one stamp for the $1 bin at M's. I just used a 3/4" circle punch to punch each one out. The used my Cricut to cut 1" red circles and 1 1/4" green scalloped circles. The green cirlces have very shallow scallops since I used the tag from Alphalicious cart. I used the Cuttlebug and the D'vine Swirls embossing folder on the lower part. This is my first project with my new Cuttlebug and I think I'm in love.

Thanks for stopping by and have a scrappy weekend.

Hello Blogland!!

I've been MIA for about a week. I've been having some issues with my back so I can't sit to long. Hopefully I'm on the road to recovery.

Befoere my back started acting up I was busy altering 16 comp books. My MIL, who is awesome BTW, donates lot of things to a women shelter in her area. One of the important things they do there is journal so comp books to the rescue. She wants them to have something special so I spent a week altering them.
Apparently I only got 13 of them downloaded I'll have to find the other three. Here are 13 of 16.

Have a scrappy day!!
