Halloween Sampler

Our Halloween Sampler was a huge success! 
The craft club ladies enjoyed an evening of fun and laughter! 

I had the table set and ready to go. 
I love having a little treat for each of the ladies. 
This night I had a little black cauldron for each one of them.

The ladies hard at work.

Everyone did a fantastic job on their Halloween Sampler!
Each one is unique and so cute!
Great job ladies!

gift set

Look how lovely these card boxes turned out! My awesome SIL, Melissa gave me these card fronts to make into cards. I did some with just the card front, I added a few pearls to some, and others I just backed in an outline of black to make it pop!
They all are simply gorgeous! 

I put 4 cards in a box and added a bit of ribbon to tie it all together.
Who knows...you might be the lucky one to receive one of these...
Thank you Melissa!

Just a bit more...

After all that Halloween extravaganza...we made two more cards at Sylvia's class.
Love the water color look of the sunflower....it is two stamps just stamped on top of each other. Stamp the center and you have a beautiful image. The other card is using Stampin Up's foil snowflakes. So pretty and so easy paired with their snowflake cardstock.
Thanks for a great class Sylvia!

Halloween explosion!

Sylvia's class on Monday was packed with Halloween goodness!
Look at all the fun projects we made using some of the new stuff from the SU holiday catalog.
I love the mini pizza boxes that we decorated and the fun pillow box. She taught us how to make a witch hat clip and taught us a new card fold and treat box....you rock Sylvia!

 The mini pizza boxes are awesome! Look how cute we decorated it...washi tape around the box...ahhh!! The top is from the Halloween paper pack...one sheet of nothing but the 3 x 3 squares you can just cut and add to the top. We stamped the owl and the boo. The puffy bats made it fun!

 The card was so easy to make and look how fun it is as a decoration by itself!
The pillow box she found at Michaeals and we made the little treat holder...it has one mini reese cup inside. I love it all!

I made this card for my boss' daughter's shower the other week. I used the cherry blossom embossing folder and the stamp is an old wood block I had in my stash from Wordsworth.
I added a bit of color to the stick figures and added some heart gems from Amuse Studio.
I almost forgot...check out the Nuvo drops on the flowers...thanks Melissa for introducing me to those!

from the heart

My boss outdid herself for her daughter's shower this past weekend. It was a beautiful sunny day and the setting was perfect! She had bought mix matched fine china and set the tables beautifully!
The food was delicious and the desserts were scrumptious!

One of the many place settings. Notice she put the fruit in the tea cup...so clever!

The homemade truffles were displayed beautifully on the 3 tiered stands that she made from mix matched china. Hi Grandma!

I had to try one of each....they were all so yummy!

One of my favorite stamp sets to use for a sympathy card is beautiful day by Altenew.
It is so pretty when layered with color. You can add as much or as little color as you like. I added the flowers to the bottom of this embossed card. So beautiful!

with sympathy

This card was made by using several embossing folders. I used the cherry blossom folder for the bottom of the card. I cut it in half and then added the top half of the with sympathy embossing folder. I added a strip of paper tape from amuse studio. A simple yet beautiful card.

These cards could be used for any occasion.
It is a simple card to make using an embossing folder. The cards already have the watercolor marks on them. I just embossed the front. Added some ribbon and a very nice card instantly.
