EPI. #525 ~ My December Daily 2016!

Hi Everyone,
I hope you all have had a relaxing weekend - we are super excited for Halloween tomorrow! That special day means I usually try to have my December Daily all put together with the daily pages all set up and ready for my photos and journaling. I find if I have everything already in place it makes the daily documentation really a joy and I can enjoy all that the holidays bring.

In this video, I am sharing Days 5 -11 and some of the tweaking I have done to jazz things up a bit wothout going over the top.
I hope you enjoy today's tutorial and you are getting your things together to make your own December Daily mini album on order, it really is a fun tradition to follow.
If you need any products shown here, you can always find them at my online store at:
and please use the HOSTESS CODE: 99KAZCU4  for order under $150.

Happy Halloween,

Ep. #524 ~ Quick and Easy "Spooky Fun" Halloween Card with Stampin' Up!

Hi Everyone,
Can you believe Halloween is almost here? Where has the year gone? You know what that means... Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner, gosh! 
So if you are short on time, here is a perfect quick and easy Halloween card to whip up in a hurry. Seriously, this card takes 5 minutes to make - gotta love that!
With that being said, I hope you take a moment to enjoy all the beautiful fall scenery and enjoy all those adorable little gobblins that will be showing up at our doors. I miss those younger years with my own kiddos, but it is so enjoyable to see the new crop of young parents taking their little ones out Trick-Or-Treating. I guess I'll have to wait for grandchildren to get to do it all again!
Happy Halloween,

Episode #516 ~Using "Scraps" on a Foxy Friends Card by Stampin' Up!

Hi there Crafty Friends,
Happy Saturday, I hope you are enjoying your weekend ~

If you are anything like me, you save and promise that you will use your "scraps" on a future project... but that never comes to fruition. Well after a inspiring morning spent with my fellow StampaHOWlic sisters, I came home determined to use the "scraps" from one of my most FAVORITE Designer Series Paper Stacks "A Little Foxy" from the Stampin' Up! 2016 Annual Idea Book & Catalog. 
I love the pretty patterns and think they go well with fall themed projects! You can see in my tutorial below how easy it is to put those darn scraps to use and make a dent in my scrap drawer - yippee!
P.S. I changed the cute little raccoon from a boy in the video to a girl in the snapshot...
