Get Well & SNEAK PEAK!

It was supposed to be a simple Get Well card!  It turned out a little more detailed then I thought it would.  But then I never know how anything I make will turn out in the end.  Also, Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing 2 new sets.  So here is my sneak peak at the new Mini Messages.

What can I say, I am really into the Umbrella Man die.  Are you getting totally sick of him yet?  But doesn't he fit with the card!  I cut the card stock at 9 1/4" by 8" then scored down the center.  I wanted a tall legal size envelope...or is that a bill size? 


I ran my card through my cuttlebug with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  Then I glued on the greyish buttons on the flowers.  I did change all the buttons as I had them blue at first.  As the card took form I needed to make the changes.  Pretty eh?


I also decorated the inside of the card with the coordinating DP from the umbrella.  It's a thick glitter paper.  The wide black ribbon I saved from a Disneyland purchase this past summer.  Don't throw anything away!  I then ran some white card stock through my Tiny Tags die and stamped an Antique Ledger stamp for background.  The "Get Well" sentiment is from the new Mini Messages set. 


I stamped this great vintage stamp in versamark to make a resist for the 3" envelope, something for my tag to tuck in too.  I distressed with TH Pumice Stone and Black Soot...did I get that right?  OK grey and black!  A great spot to tuck a little note.  I finished the tag with the same Disney ribbon and an antique brad.


I punched the inside of the DP with the Martha Stewart Heart border punch.  I saved the hearts for the Umbrella Man.  I like how they trickle.  Then I stamps "Thinking of You" right onto the card...another stamp from Mini Messages.


I kept the card masculine for my intended family member. 

Thanks for popping in.  Do you have a favorite part of the card?  I love the mini envelope and tag.  What a nice treat when it gets opened.

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…
