Boo to you

Happy Weekend!
Earlier this week I mailed my grandson, Kevin, the Pumpkin Head card I had made.
Today's card is being mailed to my other grandson, Wyatt.

I used scrap pieces for the background.
Those papers are from Graphic 45 - An Eerie Tale

Silhouette ID# 66361 - Big Head Frankie
He's adhered with some foam tape for dimension

Tag is a punch I picked up at Walmart.

Sentiment from Craftin Desert Divas - Ghostly Greetings
Here's a close-up of that...

You can buy this stamp set HERE

Enjoy your weekend!

Cut It Up - Purple, Orange, Lime Green with Black

Happy Friday! I love October. It's my favorite month of the year!

There is a brand new challenge up at CUT IT UP and the theme is Purple, Orange, Lime Green with Black. As always, use a DIE CUT.

Here's my project....

Silhouette ID# 65737 - 2 Pocket Folder
I added matting for the front and inside of this folder.
It came with matting for the pockets, but not a shadow, so I used the Offset feature to create one.

Silhouette ID# 65750 - Little Witch
I cut out the hat and dress twice and added them on top of each other with foam squares for dimension

Silhouette ID# 39232 - Set of 4 Tabs
I created a shadow for the Tab with the Offset feature on the Cameo.

Inside - you could put some notes and envelopes here or
Halloween Treat recipe cards.

Just wanted to show you the dimension on the front.

Here's a close-up of the sentiment.

I used Craftin Desert Divas "Simply Said"

You can buy this stamp set HERE.

Check out what the other Design Team Members came up with for this challenge at Cut It Up, then be inspired yourself. 
You have until  October 29 to link up. 
Be sure and check out the Cut It Up sponsors and prizes too!

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.

SOUS: Anything Autumn

A new Die Cut challenge starts today over at Stuck On U Sketches! I hope you'll join us. Create any type of project you would like using our theme:

You can link up your project HERE

I decided to make a card using colors of the season and a warm, steaming cup of _______ (fill in the blank). 
Coffee? Hot Cocoa? Hot Tea?

Click to enlarge
 Not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the mug is three-dimensional.

  • Silhouette ID# 51080
    • I copy and pasted the leaf from the "tea bag". Then I cut off the stem and re-sized the leaf to fit the leaves down the side of the card. The leaves were cut out again in burgundy, yellow, and green and added to the side of the card. This was not part of the cut file.
  • The pattern paper for the mug handle and steam is also a cut not included in the cut file. I just measured how much I would need, cut it out, and adhered it to the inside cover

  • I added a sentiment section on the inside (not part of the cut file)
  • Also cut out a couple more extra leaves for the inside (not part of the cut file)
  • Tim Holtz Walnut Stain - inked edges

Thanks for stopping by today to see what I'm up to.

Pumpkin Mini Album

Hi, guys! Glad you are here.
I made a 5 page Pumpkin Mini Album Tuesday morning, 
and have been so excited to share it with you.

All the photos are of our family.
I didn't have a picture of Wyatt available to add to it.
I'm a bad grandma. 
And I ran out of papers that matched, so I can't add
an additional page without it sticking out like a sore thumb.
So I decided to get some pictures of Wyatt and Kevin
and do a separate mini just for the grand babies. :)

I have some photos to show you,
and a very short video.
The video doesn't have sound.
Bonnie was watching Scooby Doo when I filmed it,
and although I LOVE Scooby Doo, I didn't 
think you'd want to hear that in the background.
(UPDATE: YouTube let me add some of their music to my video after I uploaded it. Coolness!)

Here's some photos and details for you:

Pattern Papers - Carta Bella - A Perfect Autumn

Kraft Twine

Orange Tulle tied to rings (tulle from Amazon)

Craftin Desert Divas - Hey Pumpkin - sentiment stamp set
You can buy this stamp set HERE

Left - son, Jimmy and daughter, Bonnie
Right - daughters Kati & Keri

Left - Keri, Bonnie, Kati
Right - me and Tom (love this man!)

Left - Tom and Bonnie
Right - me and Bonnie

Left - Son-on-Law, Aaron (he's so fun)
Right - Grandson, Kevin sitting at the Tiki bar

Fast and easy mini to assemble.
Love the pumpkin shape with the "thankful thoughts of you" sentiment on the front.

Thanks for stopping by.
See you tomorrow!
