All that I'm after is a LIFE full of laughter, as long as I'm laughing with YOU!

Happy B-day to anyone!

In my recent card making I've enjoyed alot of the current paper lines. With all truth be told I have to say this line of "B-day Bash" by Imaginisce is my most recent favorite. I love making birthday cards, and this line is so versatile. I've made adult cards, kids cards, men, women's and everything in between with this line. Seldom does it come along that you can create so many different items for a broad span of ages and sexes.

If you can find it still on the shelves of your local scrapbook store, I'd suggest you grab what you can and add it to your stash (you have one...we all do).

For my local readers: I know our local store Scrapper's Boutique has some still in stock!

Fun is in the Cards!

...and family too for that matter! This was a fun little card to make. Using both stamps and fun printed paper....2 of my favorite things. Throw in a little ribbon to hold the tag and a dimensional pop dot for the family sentiment and you have yourself a card that could be used for multiple occasions.
If you like it and are interested in purchasing it, you can find it for sale in my Etsy store.

Fun Project

Last evening I attended a class called "scrapstashers" at The Little Blue House. The intent of the class it to make great items using things you already have in your scrapbooking stash! While this class has been around for quite some time, this was my first time to attend and I can honestly say I was NOT disappointed!

They provided the tree portion of the project for us (I actually purchased several more to use making gifts). Then we each cut out papers using the leaves that were cutout as patterns. Needless to say each of the finished projects looked different but they were all amazing! The cost of this class is only $5 and I think this was the best $5.00 I've spend creating a new decor item for my home ever.
If you are local I strongly recommend you make time in your schedule to attend one of these classes!

Witching Season is near!

I'm soooo ready for fall and cooler temperatures. There is no better way to get that fall feeling than Friday night high school football & decorating for Halloween! This week I spend an afternoon crafting a new decoration to add to our yearly stash of spooky gear. No one will be too frightened by this fun project involving 3 frames, some patterned paper and LOT of glitter!

Everyone loved this little project and even my kids noticed it on the mantle after school. Hope everyone is having as much fun as I am preparing for fright night!

My new love

I've said for while a long time I did not need to get into a new addiction, but I could no longer ignore those beautiful Copic pens! I took an instructional class Tuesday at Scraper's Boutique and fell in love. While they are a bit of an investment, you can get buy with just 2 of each color family when starting out. I made my first cards using them yesterday.

Boo to you!

I'm actually ahead of the holiday for once this Halloween! I'm excited to start working on teacher treats today. Most parents stop sending gifts after elementary, but I send them thru High School. Those teacher deal with so much drama from the kids...I think they need a little boost more than ever.
Here are a couple cards I worked on yesterday at the Scrappers Boutique!

I'm Back!

WOW, I can't believe it's been so long since I posted here. I was in a bit of a craft rut and felt like I had lost my mojo for awhile. Recently I am back crafting, cropping with friends and stepping back into the projects I love to work on.

Halloween is just around the corner! I thought I'd get started on a few spooky items.
So today I'm sharing with you a couple card I made using My Minds Eye paper, a bit of card stock and ribbon.
