Happy Halloween everyone!

And for this week at Let's Capture These Sketches, Darlene drew a fabulous card sketch for us to use this week with our sponsor's, my Stamp BOX stamps! You can see Darlene's card sketch here. And here's what I did with it:

Ho ho ho!

supplies: Santa and sentiment stamp, myStamp BOX (Ho ho ho set); patterned paper, Cosmo Cricket; glitter paper, Doodlebug; cardstock, Bazzill; ink, Memento, Copic; glitter, Stickles by Ranger; edge punch, Martha Stewart; rectangle shapes & snowflake die cut, Spellbinder's; 3D Liquid Applique, Marvy; brad, Making Memories; other, thread.

My little Santa fellow, a stamp from myStamp BOX called "Ho ho ho", actually does cartwheels across the card! So cute! I'm actually going to teach this card at my local community center next month in a card class there. I know the girls are going to love it!


Creative Pandemonium [63]

This week's challenge for Creative Pandemonium was to create a layout with the following items:
  • kraft paper (my favourite!)
  • some circles
  • some scallops!
Here's the page I created:

The Little Things

I hope you'll come over and play along with our challenges!


my Stamp BOX & Halloween!

Yesterday was my son's party day at pre-school. In addition to making the ugliest looking cupcakes (I am NOT a baker!) I made a basket full of special treat bags for all his classmates.

For each bag, I cut out a Spellbinder's label shape using my My Mind's Eye "The Spider's Web" paper and folded it in half the long way. I folded the top of each treat filled bag and the stapled the label over the top of the rolled up bag.

Then I added a stamped Halloween image on scalloped circles from the myStamp BOX set "BOO!" to cover the staple.

I also stamped out a Happy Halloween greeting on kraft cardstock and punched them using the same scalloped circle punch and then hung them from the label. I wrote my son name on the back of each tag.

So simple!

The Scrapping Bug - October Reveal

For October at The Scrapping Bug we got a super spooky scrapbook kit to work with this month.

Here are the 3 pages I made using the kit this month:

Countdown to Fright Night

This is a little calendar to countdown the days until Hallowe'en. I think I'm going to send it to Spencer's school for the teachers to use. Each round circle on the calendar comes off. I was orginally going to make them all magnets but I didn't have enough magnetic paper left.

Getting Ready

This is my Dad helping Spencer on with his costume 2 Hallowe'ens ago. I love these photos of the two of them together. They have a special bond with each other. I made the 2 little pumpkins but tracing a colouring book image I got off of the internet and then just cut out each section of the pumpkin from a different patterned paper.

A Spooktacular Hallowe'en

With each Bug kit you always get an assortment of fun and interesting die cut images. This month, the kit includes this fabulous title. I just made a very simple page for my last creation.

And finally, here's my card. As soon as I saw the haunted house die cut I knew I was going to create a card with multiple levels and so this is my end result.

Thanks for stopping by!


A Page in Time - October Reveal [part 1]

Here's a close up each page....

And here's the card I created using the scraps from my layout:
