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.

I put a beautiful battery powered candle in the center of mine & it looks so festive & really helps hold it in place.

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,

Big Huggs,
