200 Thank You Cards

So this is what 200 cards look like!
 
Remember that day on Facebook...OK maybe not.
 
So, there was this day I posted a photo of 400 pieces of ribbons and everyone that was there...(maybe 3 people) was "like...OMG" and "YOUR F'N CRAZY" and "WTH is wrong with you".  Ya, something to that effect.  Well, now I can show you what I was making. 
 
Here you have it...200 cards!  OR...
 100 per bin
200 cards scored 
400 pieces of ribbon
400x stamping
600 cut pieces of paper
8 rolls of ATG Tape
AND...
1400 letters and numbers cut and glued, one by one!
 
 You may be telling yourself after reading those STATS, "She's Crazy"! You'd be right!
 
 
  Here are the 400 pieces of Stampin Up Ribbon, Basic Grey Stitch and Misty Blue Scallop.  Or something to that effect?
 
 
I layered the ribbon then taped them on for 5 hours straight.  I had no feeling left in my fingers.
 
 
Here, I bagged each letter and number into it's own bags.  That's 7 bags with 200 cuts in each. 
 
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just came out with this Many Thanks stamp just in time!  And Many Thanks to SMS for having this AWESOME stamp set!  It was perfect timing:)
 
 
For the bottom portion of the inside of the card I coloured by hand this big stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Booksellers and Publishers.
 
 
Aren't they fabulous together.  I had to hand colour the bottoms stamp since I didn't need the whole thing.  I once had a shiny new Black SU marker:(


All mounted and ready for the letters and numbers!
 
 
My finished card, simply made with a great impact I thought.
 
My husband's company (he works for) is celebrating 10 Years Today!  I made these for the the staff in the Company colours.  They distribute Book and Magazines so you can see how using the Booksellers stamp and this Newsprint SU paper is so fitting.  I kept the card design simple and to the point otherwise I'd still be making them;)
 
So now do you remember that day on Facebook?
 
Oh and just so you know I've added a "PIN IT" button at the top of the post to make it easier for you to "PIN NOW, CRAFT LATER"

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…

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
