Halloween Treat

My husband is laughing at me. He is this huge computer geek and therefore speaks a language I do not understand. Just show me how to do something once, then I can do it again and again. Don't try to explain it all to me. Just show me. Anyhoo, I completed my 3 year old's Halloween treats for his friends and classmates. I love it! Simple yet cute. The box was created from the Big Shot Bigz xl Die Bitty Box. I had some left voer Kiwi Kiss cardstock I needed to use up. Made the box out of that. Laced it up with the Old Olive Grosain Stripe ribbon and stamped Little Boo stamp in White Craft, embossed it and punched with the circle scallop. Tah Dah! Filled with yummy Halloween candy and it is all ready to go. Hope the children enjoy it!

Scrapbooking Class - October

I am in happy land. At home. Just at supper and sitting around with my family. David is playing the matching game with Davis so I could prepare for my scrapbooking class tomorrow. I am so excited! I have 7 girls coming. First month I had 2. Second month I had 4. And this month I have 7! It has been going very well. As I promised, here are the projects we are going to create tomorrow night. If you like them and want the cutouts or finished projects, just let me know. Cost is $15 for all 4 pages. If you are intested in attending next month - just post a comment below and I will get in touch with you. Now, I am off to start making some cute Halloween projects for my son's preschool class - love this!

Just a scrappin'

Boy! What a game last night. Love it when the Broncos play like that. And ya know.....I am really digging the uniforms. I want them to wear the brown all the time. Very basic and not as glamorous. Reminds me of the good ole days when football was all about playing and not being a bigshot. Anyhoo, as I was watching the game with my HB and Davis, I worked on this month's scrapbooking projects. We are doing (4) 12 x 12 pages, as usual. This month's themes will be halloween, back to school and pumpkin patch/carving. Still working on them so you can't see them just yet. But they are CUTE. I also worked on a Christmas wreath that is made of Stampin' UP Designer Series Paper - I am going to sell these at the local holiday craft fair next month. You will get a taste of those here in the next few days as well. Well, must get back to work. Real work. Not fun work. Pray for my friend, Lou. She has the swine flu. Poor thing.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas, We Wish You a ....

Today, I had a Christmas Card Camp at my house and boy was it fun! I had over 15 girls at the house! I made some yummy white bean chili (thanks Susan!) and everyone settled in for a good time. The goal was to make at least 21 cards from the Stampin Up Simply Scrappin Kit CHRISTMAS JINGLE. That kit is so cool and so beautiful. I had some photos of sample cards for anyone to copy and most did at first. But then the creative juices started flowing and everyone started making up their own designs. The cards turned out great and everyone had a great time. I have posted just a few of the cards we made.........let me know if you are interested in buying the kit so you can make these adorable cards for your friends and family......just $25 for the kit and written directions on how to get started. Let me know if interested!
ugh - just looked at the photos and realized some are blurry. Sorry about that. Husband needs to get on the computer so I will replace photos tomorrow.

TTFN (as Tigger would say),

Hello Earthling

Hello fellow earthlings. I am finally posting the card I created for World Card Making Day way back on October 5. I really did something out of my comfort zone. I decided to look through the Stampin' UP catalog and pick a stamp set that I would NEVER purchase - either not my taste or I just didn't like it. Well, I pick GREETINGS EARTHLING out of the Growing Up section and look how cute this card turned out!!!! I cased the idea from Stamping by Michelle on Splitcoaststampers and modified it a bit. Used Black, White and Bermuda Bay. I think it is darling. Not my usual card and that is what I like about it! Let me know if you would like directions on how to do...........

Bad bad me.............

Okay. So, studying did get in the way this week. Had a very difficult couple of chapters and I am still studying.........heart and circulatory system. I have read and read until I am blue in the face. Just want to take the lab quiz and test so I can play. And play I will! Starting tonight, I am working on my scrapbooking pages for camp next week. They are going to be so cute! This Sunday I have my Christmas card camp - got 14 girls coming! Fun! Well, back to work. This is going to be a very crafty weekend..........I can feel it!

Work, Stamping and Studying.........

Wow. It has been a few days. Need my blog fix. Started class on Monday (prereqs for nursing school) and just trying to get back into the groove of studying every day. But do not worry. I am still 100% devoted to stamping and scrapbooking. I study on my lunch break and take a couple of tests each weekend. No biggie. Anywho....we celebrated World Card Making Day in the community by hostessing an stamping event on Sunday. 6 Stampin' Up demonstrators created a card and opened it up to the community. Had a great turnout. It was loads of fun. I will post my creation tonight. Decided to think out side the box on this one. Details to come. Well, happy stamping!
