What a crafting weekend...

This is the last post for a few days, but I just had to show you my latest creation. I didn't use the cricut on this card. I free-handed the pumpkin and moon. Then I inked them to give them a little dimension. I don't have any Halloween stamps (would love to have the new My Pink Stamper's Spooky Puns), so I wrote the sentiment with a black Sharpie.

These pictures aren't the greatest because I had to use my iPhone. I can't seem to find the cord to my camera so I can download pictures. I plan on doing a thorough search tomorrow evening. For now it's off to bed. Goodnight All!

Paper: The Paper Studio
Cuttlebug folder: Distressed Stripes
Ink: Stampin' Up

Hopefully, I will have another crafting weekend like this one soon. I had such a great time. I love the challenges and will probably seek them out through the week so I have projects over the weekend. Thanks to Robyn with for the inspiration. She's the greatest! Without her, I may never have found my way back to paper crafting.

My Son Has Caught the Crafting Bug.

My son Kyler decided he wanted to make a card for his cousin's birthday this morning. My nephew turns 7 today and he loves Chevy's and Guitar Hero. Kyler did this card all by himself. He even came up with the saying. It was his first time stamping also. I think he did a great job. I LOVE THIS CARD!!!




Paper:  The Paper Studio.
Stamp Set: Inkadinkado Clear Stamps-Rock Star
Ink: Rubber Stampeed
Glitter: Martha Stewart 

I also made a card too. I think Kyler's is the best though. This goes to show you that even though the cartridge is called Rock Princess, it can be used for Rock Princes as well.

Paper: DCWV Plain and the Kids Nana stack
Embossing: Ranger and Versamark
Cricut Cartridge: Rock Princess
Cuttlebug Folder: Happy Birthday
Brads: EK Success

Now it's time to start getting everyone ready for school tomorrow. Maybe I will get to go to my craft area later tonight.

Halloween Signs

Wow, two posts in one day. I've been "working" very hard in my new craft area. I call it an area because I've taken 3 desks and an old dining room table and claimed one corner of our basement. I even used the ironing board to finish off the boundary. I love my craft area. I have shelves, but I have to get my husband to help me hang them.

Ok, enough. On with the next project. These pictures aren't the greatest. I made both of these as magnetic signs so I can hang them on the file cabinets at work.

Paper: Wausau
Glitter: Martha Stewart
Cricut Cartridge: Happy Haunting

My Pink Stamper winter challenge

 OK, so I didn't post things like I said I was going to, but our summer has been insane. We moved to a new town, once we got everything into our house (not put away), my mother-in-law decided she was going to move closer to us. That meant we had 35 years worth of stuff to move. Then my sister got married last weekend and I had the honor of making the wedding cake, a first for me. So now that all that is finished and school has started, we have a little time to breath.

So, now that I have the time to craft, this is my response to My Pink Stamper's winter cricut challenge. I hope you like it.
