Halloween Cutie

Hi!  Here is another layout that was published in the September issue of Create magazine.  Remember, it's a free on-line magazine that you can download.  It's packed with wonderful ideas and product information, not just for scrapbooking but cards, tags and gift wrap ideas, too, so you'll never need to go anywhere else for your scrapbooking hobby!
The supply list is on page 152.

Also linking this to the awesome Word Art Wednesday blog, for another one of their Anything Goes challenges.  Check out their blog - so many great projects are posted! 

Have fun perusing the magazine, and enjoy your day!

O Come All Ye Faithful

Hi!  It really isn't too early to start thinking about Christmas, especially in terms of getting your cards ready.  With that in mind, I made this new one to add to the selection of Christmas cards that you can purchase from my blog:

It's hard to tell, but the white paper has a gorgeous shimmer to it.  To see the inside, check out this link.

I hope you like this new card.  Thank you for visiting, and see you soon!

Personal Get Well Card


Am I glad I have this great hobby!  Not only does making cards help to take my mind off things, but I get to help others feel better.  I made this card for a friend who requested it say something personal to his friend, who is recovering from a serious illness:
I made the saying with a lobster font and my computer.  All the dies are from My Favorite Things, and the card stock is from Stampin' Up!  The DSP is from the Secret Garden collection by KaiserCraft.

Since this week's challenge from Word Art Wednesday is "anything goes", I'm linking this to their page as well. 

Thanks so much for visiting.

Hi!  Thanks for visiting today!  I was inspired to make this card based on this week's MOJO Monday challenge, and the gorgeous weather that was outside my office window today:
This is the sketch:
Stitched rectangle dies:  My Favorite Things
Inks, cardstock, embellishments, stamps and leaf die:  SU
Designer Paper:  Fall Blessings by Echo Park

Just love using all the fall colors together!  I'm sure I'll be using a lot more of them the next few weeks.  Hope they inspire you to do some creating, too!
