Hello pretty!!

When it's dark and the lights are on...come on in my pretty...don't be afraid...

Halloween night for the trick or treaters will be a treat at my daughter's house. She drew this witch and her cauldron, cut it out of black poster board and put it in her front window of her house...spooky! 
You did a great job Emily! Happy haunting!

This stamp is an oldie but goodie from PSX. I have used this baby stamp for many cards for new babies or baptisms...I love the sweetness of this stamp. I made this for my daughter to give to her new little godchild, Lydia.

It's a snap!

My sister made this birthday card for my daughter using snap pieces and squares from amuse studio. It makes it easy to create a card using these pieces.
She added some glitter, stickers, and twine and had a great card!

The inside is just as amazing as the outside. 
Love how she added Emily's name to make it more personal.

Card class

I love to take card classes because it's amazing all the little things you learn even when you've been stamping for a long time. It's refreshing and fun, especially when you go with a friend...thank you Karen for going with me! Also, if you take one of Sylvia's card classes you are going to go home with a bag full of ideas and rock Sylvia! Thanks for an awesome card class!

Sorry the pic is blurry...Sylvia working it!

Our four cards we made.

Our three yummy treats we made.

Frankie, Jack, and Mum

These cute Halloween treats were made using the retired amuse studio fry box die. My friend Sylvia gave me the pattern for Frankie which then led me to making Jack and Mum! I do think they are just adorable!

Card swap

I participated in a swap with fellow consultants and everyone did an amazing job! Thank you Melissa for hosting and thank you ladies for the inspiration!

Below is my swap. I love the fall in the forest stamp set! I used sky cardstock for my base card and wasabi and french roast wood grain cardstock. You can use any oval punch or spellbinder for the tree. A few copics for coloring and some vanilla twine.

spooky treats!

I love Halloween decorations and so when I saw this cauldron cookie jar I had to add it to my collection! The best came with cookies! If you haven't had Cheryl' s cookies before you have to try them...they are delicious! Yum!

cupcake kind of day!

Not sure where I saw these but look how darling these cupcakes are! 

Speaking of cupcakes, at baby Joelene's shower we had cupcakes for dessert....the chocolate was delish and oh so cute!

Monday, October 6, 2014

Oh baby!

Baby snap cards from amuse studio make it a snap to create the perfect tag or card! I used the essential sentiments too and the tall alphabet die set along with the heart trio die to make this cute tag for baby Joelene! It was the perfect tag for my gift.

I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and bought this great organization tool for all my amuse studio embellishments. My sister told me she had bought one and I saw how awesome it was and had to go get me one. They were having a great sale so I snagged one at 50% off!
