I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!

All 108 piled up!

Just a sampling.

What they look like with the money inside :)

My mom in law needed some birthday cards that would hold money so she asked if I would make her some. This is how they turned out 108, YES you read that right, cards with little pockets for holding some ice cream money. The best part about these little cards is that the only paper I had to cut was the actual base of the card, all the patterned paper is from my scrap drawer. Now you know why I keep all those scraps Monica ;)

Candy Corn anyone??!!

This is what I have been working on lately. Terracotta pots painted like candy corn, aren't they cute? :)
close up.

Here they are all finished and ready to go out. I cut the "BOO" from alphalicious and then glued it together and taped it to a skewer, the spider is from paper doll dress up. There is candy corn inside these that's why they are in the bags.
close up of the finished product! :) I linked this up at Craftaholics Anonymous.

WCMD Cards

So on Saturday for those of you that don't know it was World Card Making Day! I am so glad to know that people set aside 1 day a year (although it could definitely be more) to do nothing but make cards. I had the chance to get together with Savannah and Andrea and get some more cards done for my craft fair. Thanks girls for helping me get all those little 1.5x2.5 pieces of paper cut for the front of the cards. I ended up getting the 5 pieces stuck down on Monday, (66 total) stamped the saying on Tuesday, bought the ribbon Wednesday and tied them all together Thursday. 6 cards per pack with envelopes for $8.00. let me know if you want some :) Thanks again Andrea and Savannah for your help.

here are Savannah's crafts

here is Savannah's Frankenstein that she put at the one end of her Trick or Treat banner
her "BOO" project, I love her little head stone at in the bottom of the "B" pot, great touch. She also added some white fibers under the rim of her pots so it looks like spiderweb.

and aren't these cards the cutest, she got the idea here... http://www.creatingkeepsakes.com/content/view/6141/
tell Justin thanks for going hunting so I could hang out with you all week. I had a blast!!!

well Savannah and I saw this project in Paper crafts magazine on page 85 and then we saw it on Barb's blog so we thought what the heck we can do that! we started it last night and finished it today. super easy I think the total cost per project was only about 6.00 so it was super cheap as well. I will post pictures of hers tonight when I go over to make cards for World Card Making Day! :) I linked this up at Craftaholics Anonymous!

Trick or Treat revised

so after looking at my mummy and vampire I thought they needed to be WAY bigger so I used Andreas expression and made my mummy 10 3/4 inches and my vampire 11 inches. I also added a white brad to his suit coat and am really happy with how they turned out. I will have to take a picture of Savannah's Frankenstein to show you, that's what she did instead of the vampire.  I linked this up at Craftaholics Anonymous! You can find the original post HERE.

Trick or Treat!

Savannah and I were able to get together and make these adorable Halloween banners last night. I saw the idea in a magazine and said to myself "We can do that!" the letters are mounted on chip board and I used squiggly eyes on both the vampire and the mummy. Oh I also used lots of glitter if you look close on the spider web and the eyes of the pattern paper you can see it sparkle :)


Here are the "FAMILY" letters. These will be $10.00 and would make great Christmas gifts;) They all come wrapped like a tootsie roll in clear cellophane and have a tag on them with TO: and FROM: all you have to do is fill in the name.


Here are the "JOY" letters these will be $8.00


Here are the "MERRY" words I made for the craft fair. These will be $12.00. Thanks for looking!
