Wednesday Wow, it’s Halloween!

31 Oct
Hey Creepers!!
Happy Halloween and Happy Wednesday.
I have a fun post to share today.
Something I passed out to my co-workers and friends today.
These cellophane bags contain my much admired and craved caramel corn.  I try to only make it this time of year so that is really treat people look forward to.
The stamps I used were, Gurnsey Gingham and Halloween Greetings.
I stamped my cardstock with the Gurnsey Gingham before cutting out the pumpkins.
I used little letter stickers to remind me who each bag went to.
This is not a great picture, but it is 2:00 in the morning, so it’s the best I could do!
I hope everyone has a great night with their kids or what ever it you are doing tonight.  Be safe.
Those of you on the East Coast, I can’t even imagine what you are going through, none of this seems to matter compared to what you are all facing.  Our thoughts and prayers be with you, I wish I could do more.

Pop Up Halloween Fun with Cheery Lynn Designs

14 Oct
Not wanting to sound like a broken record, I will not tell you how excited I am about my post today!
Maybe this has been done before and if so, that’s ok…but this card design I did not do any GOOGLE searches to help me at all!  It is 100% me and my crazy mind.
It is my pop out Pumpkin Card/Decoration.
I have seen a lot of people doing he 3-d pumpkins from normal circles and then using them as decorations. I did not just want to do what everyone else is doing.
What I did here was to 1st, not use circles but a Scalloped Oval.
I really wanted it to look like a honeycomb pumpkin and asked my 15yo son how he thought I could do it.  He said I couldn’t!  But I proved him wrong!!
With a little creative sewing and hot glue, I did it.
Another secret?  My bats!  All I did was to use the Hearts die, fold  a heart in half and then cut the top off the heart.  When you open the paper up, you have yourself a bat.
I had so much fun making this and think I might get a frame and just turn it into a Halloween decor item!

Halloween with Cheery Lynn Designs

9 Sep
I do so want fall to get here!
The warm weather is getting old and I am in the mood for cooler temps, changing colors and making costumes!
So, I have decided to help things along the way by thinking forward.
Here is my project for today. It is called a shelf card.

Now, I am not going to lie to you, maybe the theory of making this card is easy, but…

…if I had someone to call and cry to about this card, I would have!

I borrowed the name BOO CREW from Authentique Paper. I as using paper from their GLOWING line and on one of the HEADLINES for GLOWING , you will see this cute little phrase.

Once again, I used a lot of dies on this project. To start, on each level I used a SCALLOPED OVAL as my decorating base.
For my spiders on the first level, I worked my magic on some DARLING DAISIES turning the daisies into this likable spiders.

Also on the first level of the card I made flowers out of the smallest SCALLOPED OVAL.
The oval made this funky sort of shaped flower, perfect for this card.
The leaves underneath are from the set called JUDY’S BLOOMS.

On the 3rd and top layer I used a cute little stamp I had to represent the BOO CREW.

Here is a side view of this intricate card.

Another side view.

You can see how each layer is staggered.

Believe it or not, it DOES fold flat!

Have I made you long for some fall time activities or card making? I hope so.
I had fun making this, even though it was very trying!
I adore the way it turned out and it was huge therapy for me to make my own spiders…
…NO ONE is more scared of those things than me!
Like I always say, Paper-crafting is THERAPY!!
