Episode #427 ~ "Super Simple Sunday" #36 Using Fall Fest & Happy Waterco...

Happy Sunday Stampers,

  I haven't done a "Super Simple Sunday" video in FOREVER!!! So, I am doing one today because this fall card couldn't be any "simpler". I went to a group meeting with my old stamping friends from years ago when we used to live here in Illinois. It was so great to see everyone again & get back to sharing ideas!

  Sequins are my new best friend & I love to sprinkle just a few on my cards for a little bit of bling. If you have any questions, please leave me a comment as I will be checking my blog as well as my channel.

  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday ~

Episode #428- Ghostly Treat Box

Happy Columbus Day Friends,

  It's a rainy, yucky day here in Chicago - it's my house cleaning day & so I am of course playing in my craft room first! The cleaning can wait just a little bit!!!

  I have been itching to play with this awesome new Curly Keepsake Box from Stampin' Up! so i looked around on Pinterest & got my inspiration from a gal named Nancyprints. She had done a card & i simply adjusted it to make into a treat box. The candy corn will go in ON halloween, because if I do it now… my teenage son will eat it! Momma likes it too ~

  Give this fun project a try, I know they will be a huge hit when I pass them out to neighbors & friends at the Halloween Party we are going to this weekend.

Happy Crafting -

Episode #427 ~ Lawn Fawn Cards Share & Stampin' Up Goodness!

Hi Crafty Friends,

  First, I have to explain the abrupt ending of this video… I went over the 10 minute time limit on YouTube so I had to cut it off right away so I would be able to upload the video. I am sorry I didn't get to show you the other cute card I made, but these are the rules for uploading videos - oh well.

  Lots of cute stamp set bundles & we all can take advantage of the discount of 15% when you purchase them as a bundle, woo-hoo! I am going to make some cute projects today & can't wait to share some of the scrapbook pages I have made combining traditional scrapbooking & Project Life together.

  Have a relaxing Sunday & enjoy your friends & family…

Episode #427 ~ Tennessee Haul Fun! (Sort of...)

Hi there Crafty Friends,

  I just wanted to share some of the cute stamps & papers that I picked while I was down in Knoxville, TN taken care of my daughter as she had back surgery last week. Her roommate came over to out hotel for a visit & I needed to run out to get bandages & whatnot & realized that there was a scrapbook store right down the road. So of course I had to pop in & see what they had & grab some UT stickers & stuff!

  Project Life has quickly become one of my favorite ways to scrap & I incorporate both traditional 12 x 12 pages alongside the pocket pages for added interest. It's completely addicting ( but what about paper crafting isn't?!@#$%^&*)

  I hope tomorrow to find some time to make some fall cards with my new stamp sets, so if I accomplish that, I will share the finished projects with all of you.

Happy crafting,

Episode #426 ~ "Lil' Pumpkin" Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

  I hope this video finds you all happy & healthy... I am sending a care package to our daughter who is away at college & i wanted to include a fall card for her so she could set it on her desk. I hadn't used this darling My Favorite Things stamp set yet, so I thought this would be the perfect time! It is soooo stinkin' adorable!!! I love to color with my topic markers, as I find it very relaxing.

  Fall is one of my most favorite times of the year, I love the crisp air, hayrides & the beautiful trees as they begin to change color.

  Thanks for watching my video & if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask...

Happy Fall Ya'll,

Episode #425- Gale's Been Shopping Part 2- $2 Grab Bag

Happy Friday crafty friends,

  Just thought I would share with you the fun items I was lucky enough to receive in the $2 Grab Bag that I picked up at Michaels the other day. What a pleasant surprise & it had provided some fun items to add to my gift-aways, which I just love to do!!!

  My scrubby & I will begin the process of knocking out a wall downstairs to put french doors in leading into my craft room/beauty studio tomorrow & I am super excited! I will post pictures as we progress & then of course when it is all finished. I really just want to get it done & get back to crafting & enjoying watching all of your videos as well.

  Have a relaxing weekend & I hope you are able to squeeze some time in for yourself & doing what you love.

Big squishy hugs,

Episode #425- Gale's Been Shopping!

Hello Everyone,

  I have been uber busy with our cross country move back to Illinois. We love our new house & are getting settled in quickly... I do not have a craft room in this house (yet). But my sweet scrubby is going to be building a craft room / Mary Kay Beauty Studio for me next week - yippee!!! I am soooo excited!

  To sooth my lack of ability to scrap & stamp right now, I have been shopping up a storm. Today I stopped in at Michael's & they had some really great deals. I found some awesome goodies for 99cents & even got a $2 grab bag.

  I am seriously hooked on the Project Life Scrapbooking system so, these 3x4 card packs are so cute & even better when they are on sale for $1.99! I picked up lot's & I am anxious to sit down & spend some time doing what I love. Check out your local store if you are looking for some fun stickers & P.L. card packs.

  Thanks for visiting with me & please leave a comment & subscribe to my blog, I love to share projects & great deals when I come across them.
