Completing Holiday Cards --

Hello & Happy Tuesday everyone!
How was your weekend? Mine was
too Short! HAHA! We had our Fall Break
which was a nice 4 day weekend and I was able
to get tons of stuff done along with an all day
event on Saturday making Christmas cards with friends!

Sooo... Guess what I'm sharing today? 
Yup! My Weekly Holiday card!
Now, I know I didn't share one this last week....
But that was because I knew I was making several
of them on Saturday... Either way... I'm still ahead of the game!
Yay! For me! - 

Now let me start off by saying - I'm sure these card
designs came from somewhere - (IE. Internet? Magazines?
SU? CTMH?) - Honestly, I don't know
where since I was given each packet as is...
So, I can't give credit to anyone, since I really don't know -

Of course - I ended up changing ALL of them
or almost all of them, to fit what I like - The hostess
of this card class, tries to make the cards simple
for most of the ladies who attend it because they're
not your everyday Cardmaker like me & you are!
And she knew I was gonna change my stuff up
and add or subtract from her designs! At least she knows
me well enough to know, that's how I WORK! Hahahaha

So here is her card design that I had to create --


YES! It's a CUTE card - But I had a hard time with
the scallop, the sentiment, the large Hat & Bow -

So this is what I created with the pieces ---



First, I changed the cardbase to Black.... it makes it POP more -
Then I added Faux Stitching around the White Cardstock -
Then I changed the Embossing - I used the Lawn Fawn Swirl 
Stitched Plate... Then I used a Jaded Blossom Snowman
Stamped Image and colored in the carrot nose - 
I changed the hat to a Stitched Hat from My Creative Time - 
I chose to use Trendy Twine instead of the ribbon and
I removed the Circle/Scallop & Sentiment and replaced them
with the Label die from My Creative Time and the Sentiment is
from Crafting Desert Diva's, I Think?? -- 


Well... I've got more to share with you - But for now
I hope you ALL Have a Fabulous DAY!

Big HUGS!!!

BOO! from me....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Today's my day to take over the blog at:
YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a FUN
Halloween Treat box I made for my son -

He's to old to go trick or treating (according to him)
 so I thought I would surprise him with a treatbox
that he can enjoy without leaving the house! LOL





I thought the Vampire was perfect for my son!
 I'm using the totally adorable Halloween Kids Stamp Set 
there are (6) different images in this set and a couple
different sentiments as well -- they're all so cute! - 

I started out with some Scrap Halloween Cardstock from DCWV
and a treat box die - The box was pretty simple to make
I needed to cut 2 halves out and adhere them together
to make the box - both sides have a little window so
I put 2 tiny pieces off acetate on the inside of my box
This way the candy won't fall out!

I colored my Vampire with my Zig real brush pens
on some watercolor paper then cut it out with my 
Brother Scan N Cut machine - I attached the little
guy to the front of my box - Then took another
Scrap piece of paper and Stamped the sentiment
on it using some Memento Tuxedo Black ink -
then I found a stitched tag die that would fit
around my sentiment, die cut it out, made a small
hole at the top of it so I could put an orange eyelet thru -
Found some FUN Trendy Twine and put it through my
Tag and holes in the box and made a bow --

Now it's ready for some candy!!!

Real Witch without Coffee!!!!

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your Weekend??
Mine was wonderful! Today just so happens
to be My 25th Wedding Anniversary!!
So, my Hubby & I went out and spent some
quality time together over the weekend - 
(Since I have to work today) 😉

We don't do anything fancy for our Anniversary -

We just take a day and spend it together -
We tend to go Shopping together, hang out
grab Breakfast & Dinner while out -
It's just our day to connect without anyone else....

Simple? YES! But I like Simple! It's totally MEEE!

Any who.... I also wanted to share a Super
FUN Home Decor Project I made! EEK! It's soooo CA-UUTE!!!




I Sooooo LOOOVE the way this turned out!! It's ADORABLE!! EEK!
Don't ya think???

Okay.... so I found the Plain Wooden Coffin at Joann's Craft
Store Last year on Clearance - So, this year I went ahead and
spray painted it with Dark Gray Spray paint first -
Then I lightly sprayed it with some Black Spray paint -
I LOVE the effect that came out from doing that -
It was just something I wanted to try - hoping it would give it
a 2 tone look - and I was right! LOL Who Knew? Not Me ---
I figured if it didn't turn out, I would try another coat of gray
over the black... but I didn't have too! tehehehe

Once it was dry (I waited a day or 2) - I found this super
CUTE Saying in the Silhouette Online Store and thought
this would be so fun to place in my coffin -

I LOVE Halloween... But I love Happy, cute things
Not the scary, creepy things... that's NOT ME!

Any way... I measured my Coffin - then found an SVG coffin similar
to mine in my Silhouette Files,  so I placed it on my
designer Mat in the program and then put in
the size I just measured - 
This way I could figure out how to place 
the sentiment in my coffin correctly -

Then I found this adorable sentiment and
  resized it to fit in my coffin - I thought the sentiment was
adorable, but kind of plain on my coffin, so
I found a spider web border in my Silhouette
files and resized it.... placed it where I thought
some webs should go... and I was ready to cut everything
out with some Assorted Matte Vinyl from Craft Vinyl

The saying did not have the Steam coming from
the coffee cup - I added that, because it looked better!
So, the steam came from a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons
SVG File called (Java a Great Day)


Anyway - I hope you like it - It looks adorable hanging
on my Kitchen wall!!


Thanks for stopping by!
Have a FABULOUS DAY!!
