Mothers Day Card



HELLO, ARE YOU THERE?  Remember me?
 
Have you made your Mom a card yet?  This is one of the Mothers Day cards I made today.  I tried to go simple but I just never seem to stop.  I picked up a 6x6 Paris Paper pack awhile back and this stamp.  They pair so pretty together. 
 


I stamped a french script, then layered this Eiffel Tower stamp and clear embossed.  Using inks and water I made the paper look old and weathered.  It's not talent, I'm just making a mess. 

I roughed up all the edges for a vintage look.  But really I'm hiding all my crooked cuts and mistakes.  See, bet you can't see what I real mess it is!

I just printed my sentiment on my printer for the inside of the card.  Then punched this MS border heart punch and a pretty simple layer.  

Printing the same sentiment I punched and glued it onto this acrylic block.  Then mounted it onto a little rosette flower I made using a piece of dictionary paper.  I just fan folded the paper, trimmed the edges and fluffed it out.  Ya, there's no way this is going into an envelope now!

For this Mothers Day Card I used 3 different stamps, a bunch of scrap paper and a little imagination.  I really love how it turned out! 

Are you shocked to see a new post from me?  GEEZ WHERE HAVE I BEEN!  I am getting a new roof so I have been super busy with all that non crafty stuff!  My craft room was dusty even!  SHAME!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
