Episode # ~ Disney, Prima & Darcie Haul

Hi Everyone,
  I hope you are are well & looking forward to the New Year! I had a wonderful Christmas with my little family & we enjoyed some old traditions & made some new ones too...
  Being the lucky girl I am, I received a JoAnns gift card that I was super excited to put to good use! My store didn't have some of the sales that fellow YouTubers have shared in different parts of the country, but I was pleasantly pleased with the goodies I scored.
  Let me know if any of you scrapper girls are as far behind as I am... Only a 1 1/2 years, but it feels like a lifetime, aaarrgghhhh!!!
Warm Huggs,

Episode #412 ~ Wicked Cool Treat Card & Holder

Hi Crafty friends,
  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I spent mine playing in my craft room getting full of ink, I love it! I pulled out one of my most favorite Halloween stamps from Stampin' Up! called "Wicked Cool".
I filled the fun S/Up! Treat Cups with yummy Candy Corn & who can resist that? Not me... so, after I made sure it was good & fresh, I added a few to the treat holder.
  Stamping directly on my Twill ribbon was a great new thing to try, I am so glad I did! Give it a try yourself, I know you will love the results as much as I do. Just don't eat all the candy!!!
  Enjoy the video & thanks for watching...

Episode #413 ~ Gorgeous Grunge Bloody Mess!

Hi Everyone,
  I was on a roll today making lots of fun Halloween cards & I've always thought that the ink splats in this Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set reminded me of a crime scene, lol! So, I thought I would make a scary Halloween card & I will probably send this to my oldest son who is away at college.
  If you have any questions, just let me know... I think if you like scary instead of cutsie for halloween, then this is for you.

Episode # 406 ~ Get Well Tea Cup Holder

Hi Crafty Friends,
  Today I wanted to make a Get Well Tea Cup Holder for my sweet friend Jen-Jen who was in a terrible car accident last week. She is going to be alright, but her car was totaled & she is going tone recovering for awhile. I was sending out lots of "Happy Packages" for some girlfriends to let them know I was thinking of them & made some handmade goodies to stick in the packages. I love to surprise people with fun little gifts, don't you? Who doesn't like to get fun mail instead of bills in the old mailbox each day.
  If you have some time, I know she would greatly appreciate a little note wishing her a speedy recovery. Private message me & I will make sure it gets to her, thanks in advance as well.

Episode #407 ~ Scrapbook Layout Using Penny Black Stamp

Hi Scrappy Friends,
  I hope you are all enjoying this long weekend with your families & friends! Perhaps you are getting some crafting done, we are getting lots of rain, so it's perfect for scrapping. I am trying to get caught up, but I've lost some pictures due to my phone getting wet when we were in Niagara Falls this summer, rats! My scrubby promises me that he will figure out a way to get those pictures back, we'll see...
  I used a really cute Penny Black stamp for my accent piece on this double page layout, I bought it awhile ago & was just waiting to use on our daughters Sweet 16 pictures. With my Copic markers, I was able to color the gown pretty darn close to the color of her gown, so that was really fun!
 Have a great rest of your weekend,

Episode #333 ~ *RED ALERT* Major Haulage Pt.2

Here is Part 2 of the JoAnn's shopping trip...


Episode #333 ~ *RED ALERT* Major Haulage! Pt.1

Hi Everyone,
  I just wanted to share with all of you the amazing deals I scooped up today at JoAnn's. I am not sure if this is a corporate situation or exclusive to just my store. Long story short, the entire paper crafting section had signs posted on just about everything saying what was on sale for 40-50% Off. I scooped up a lot of goodies only to find out at the check lane, that nothing was ringing up for the sale price. I showed the manager all the posted signs & he about fell over! Non of what I was getting was supposed to be on sale, but because it was posted that way, they needed to grant the advertised price.
  Again, I am not sure what was going on or if an employee at my local store made a mistake, but it might be worth a stop if you have a JoAnn's nearby.
  I will be back tomorrow with some scrapbook page layouts I have been working on & I am hoping to spend the morning crafting.

Hi Guys,
  Yesterday was a great day spent craft shopping & having lunch with my crazies! We drove to upstate New York, the drive through horse country is just beautiful. Hobby Lobby was having some awesome sales & all the Easter things were already 30% Off. I picked up everything I need to make a deco mesh wreath *squeals with delight!*. Maybe I will do a tutorial if anyone is interested in seeing how a wreath is made.
  If you are lucky enough to have a Hobby Lobby near you, now is a great time to stock up on paper packs & rubber-stamps. I was in heaven & will make another trip out there, but not until early summer!

Episode #320 ~ Shopping Fun, Woo-Hoo!

Happy Saturday my friends,
  I found some different goodies at my Mike's in New Jersey. I thought I would share with you a few things that I hadn't seen being shown by our fellow shoppers! I am spending the day scrapbooking, but I will be back later to do a "Gift-Away" to start the New Year off right!!! Thanks for watching ~
