September Craft Club

Oh my gosh, I have got the most creative friends. Wait until you see the lovely fall centerpieces they made. They all started out with the same pumpkins and embellishments. And just look at how they are all so different. Each one is uniquely beautiful like the ladies that made them.

 This is the sample that I made, just to give them an idea of what they could expect. They just took this idea and ran with it, they are so amazing and talented.

Aren't they just beautiful? Thank you ladies for such a fun creative evening.

September Stamp Club


Here we are in September already. Can you believe how fast the summer went? Just too fast. But beautiful warm lovely weather.

Card club this month turned out to be a little warmer than we thought - Indian Summer? Maybe, but I think it's too early for that. So we made some fun fall cards in card club this month.

Both of these cards used September Stamp of The Month 'Blessed Beyond', and a set of the mini stamps from our Create Kindness card kit. The card on the left is using the new color 'Emerald' along with  some of our new Embossed acetate paper and some gold embossing. The leaves on the card on the right also have some gold embossing and lots of edge sponge distressing on the edges.

  This double flip card using the Jeepers Creepers paper pack shows how versatile this Halloween themed paper pack can be. The Gerber Daisy was cut from the new Flower Market cricut cartridge edged with the new color Raspberry. Word stamps from the September Stamp of the Month 'Blessed

 And now for using the Jeepers Creepers paper pack for Halloween. The cute little monster on the left was cut from the Artistry Cartridge from two of our new colors Pansy and Willow. The moon behind him is cut from the new color Lemon.  It also holds some yummy treats inside.

I love how these Halloween themed papers are so versatile.

Thank you for stopping by,

Happy Stamping

Wow it has been a very long time since I took the time to write a little something on my blog! Been just a little crazy in my life. But that's pretty normal for me. You know "crazy"!

We do have a new catalog out now! Yippee! the 2016 Annual Inspiration is live and lovely and just amazing! Notice all the tabs? Yep! It's that good!!!

I recently added on to my studio as well. . . I feel so blessed to have so much room to play in. It works perfectly for my clubs and team meetings. It is just what I wanted and now I can keep the club space clean and just mess up the other side!

Okay not to go off for a few days with the hubs!

Studio Craft Club

Wow - I really need to get back into blogging again. I have been totally remiss on posting anything this year. I will certainly try to change that.
I started a new club "Studio Craft Club" I have been having a blast! We have been making items from Close To My Heart along with other miscellaneous items. A girls just gotta be crafty - right? I made wooden blocks that the ladies decorated with words "Fall, Fun, Family", "Live, Love, Laugh" etc - they were all just beautiful. One of the months we even made Snowmen! They were so adorable! And even though everyone has the same items to work with - no two projects are alike!
This month we used the Art Philosophy and Artiste cricut cartridges to make all types of flowers, rosettes, leaves, swirls, butterflies and banners to decorate grape vine wreaths. I have to tell you - I have the most creative friends. They all turned out amazing. Just check them out -

Aren't they just gorgeous? I told you they were talented ladies.

There were a few items left over after class - so what do you do with them!? Well, I need a spring wreath for my door and just look at them, sitting on the table telling me, no, challenging me to do my best with what was left. Well I do like a crafty challenge and all in all I think my wreath turned out pretty good with just leftovers. The only thing that I cut out to finish my wreath was the 'Welcome'.

Stampers With an Attitude - Scaredy Cat - Blog Hop

This month Stampers With an Attitude are showing Scaredy Cat Artwork With an Attitude! This is a circular hop so if you have come from Jaimie's Blog blog you are right on track!
You are going to absolutely love this paper pack! The designs are fun, the colors bright and bold. You have no chance of making a card or scrapbook page that isn't fun!

I made two very similar cards for this hop -  only because when I turned the center portion of my card over to add the adhesive - I had cut the paper (unknowingly) in the perfect place! So I turned it back over and added the adhesive to the other side, and centered it on my card. It had the sweet little sentiment "By the Light of the Silvery Moon", (no need to add another), and the rustic fence! All I had to do was add the moon, bats and that cute little vampire! I love how this card turned out!

After that happy accident - I had to go back to my original idea and make another card. I am happy to report the original idea turned out just as cute! The ladies in my card club really enjoyed making this card during class. They added 'glittery' bats, and colored their cute little vampires with the new 'ShinHan' markers - IF they wanted to. Did I tell you how much I love the new markers??? They are amazing!
I hope you have as much fun making your Halloween cards as I did - Scaredy Cat makes so easy!
