Have a Spooky Halloween!

I made this card using leftovers and scraps from the Basic Grey Eerie collection. I love this paper collection. I added some glitter ribbon I recently found at TJ Maxx. It's really pretty, but impossible to tie into a bow. I tried to add a little black stickles here and there, but it doesn't show up.

He's no Edward...

but he's pretty cute! I found this little guy in the dollar bin at JoAnn's. What can I say, I've got a thing for vampires!
The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up! and the Fangtastic stamp is from a CTMH set.

Whooooooo goes there?

I found this Halloween stamp set at Hobby Lobby for 40% off. The Halloween stamps didn't do much for me, but it had 2 cute little owls. I decided to make a Halloween themed card, but I'm looking forward to using the owls for lots of other projects!

If the Broom Fits....

This is a Halloween card I sent to my Mom in 2004. I just love this witch from an old Stampin' Up! set called Just For Fun. She reminds me of the witch on a Bugs Bunny cartoon. Does anyone remember her? She was trying to make Bugs into stew and everytime she ran off, hairpins were left floating in the air! 
On the inside of the card, I wrote "This witch wants to wish you a Happy Halloween!"

You're So "Vein"

This is a card we made a Christy Beck's Stampin' Up! stamp club. I got a little OCD when making the veins in my leaf. At first, I wanted them to go from the middle out so it would be more realistic, but it didn't look good. So then I tried to add more horizontal folds, but then I had too many. Sometimes I just overthink things, but it's still a pretty card! All the papers and stamps are from Stampin' Up!

Fall is Here!

I finally did some papercrafting!! It seems like forever since I've made anything with cardstock! I love the smell of adhesive in the morning!!
I had this stamp set from CTMH (Treetops) that I've been wanting to use. I found this paper from the Pyrus collection by Basic Grey that I thought went really well. I added the sentiment from a Studio G stamp and some cute Fall ribbon. Looks like Fall to me. I just wish it wasn't 80 degrees outside!

Flower Power

This is my latest craft project.  A teacher at school had one of these that she had bought from a vendor and  commented on how she wish she had more. I told her I thought I could make some. I've already taken her 1 batch and got orders for more!
I cut the flowers out of fabric using my big shot. I put some on bandanas for the older kids and stretchy headbands for the yonger ones. The flowers have a pin back on them so they can be swapped out or put on hats, etc.
