Monday, October 27, 2008

A preview for my "outside" SU November card class. Better get signed up!

Shelli Demos Place Settings - Pause my tunes!

Saturday, October 25, 2008

Short commercial alert! Even more reason to love our Big Shot! You can view the supply list here . Now which idea to do first... Pause my music to get inspired!

I saw this link on my new friend, Kelly Taylor's blog and wanted to get it up here. For hours I couldn't figure how to get it to link and even emailed a few ladies (thanks Diane and Amy!) and realized I was making it harder on myself than it was. Sheesh! Lesson learned...

Our Senses

Friday, October 24, 2008

The other day Jackson and I were talking about his five senses. I would ask him what his nose is for and he would say "smelling!" And so we went through all the rest successfully, but then we got to the "feeling" sense. I asked him what our fingers and hands were for...and he said..."Cutting paper!". Oh dear, what a legacy I'm leaving with him. This photo was taken yesterday. Jackson and my husband like to go ride their bikes on the Provo River trail. Isn't it pretty?!

Blog candy shout out

Thursday, October 23, 2008

So this time it's not from me but...
Jennifer Love is offering a $25 gift certificate to All That Scraps here
And... the Shimmerz Blog is offering a set of 5 new Shimmerz waterbased paints here
Go check it out!


I do a stack for my ward church group every other month and these are the cards they will be be choosing from. I've seen a lot of these tree cards up on everyone's blogs - quite a popular set! And they get to make the owl - a very popular card I'm finding! And because I have a few Spanish speaking ladies, I'm offering two of the cards to be stamped in English or Spanish.

"Other" Card Class

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

These are from the other card class I do outside of Stampin' Up! I promised a few of the ladies I would have the samples up since they weren't able to complete their cards. I have to say this is a super fun group that comes to these classes. I love just chatting with them all!

Past Years Halloween - 2004

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

This was a few months before Jackson was born. Obviously, we were clowns but that kind of scares people without even trying to be scary!

Stampin' Up! Stampers Showcase

Monday, October 20, 2008

This card was displayed on the demostrator website in their Stampers Showcase. Unfortunately they didn't show the coolest part. It's a magic card so when you pull up the tab the little trick-or-treaters are colored. And I had to be tricky to get the parts from "All in the Family" to match up perfectly. It was a lot easier than you would think.

Past Years Halloween - 2007

Sunday, October 19, 2008

Last year's costume's were envisioned so well but then we found they needed much explaining. Hopefully some will get it but we were Alice in Wonderland, the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Hatter. I had a hard time finding fabric to make Jackson's cat outfit and ended up just spray painting it! So this year, Scott said no fairy tales. Working on this year's as we speak!


Saturday, October 18, 2008

This is Julie I's creation. It's one of the flip cards where you keep flipping it and it has a new scene with each flip. I know she's going to kill me because this isn't complete. There is a witch that is flying on top of the moon but I didn't get to finish it and then "misplaced" the witch. But seriously, WOW!

Past Years Halloween - 2006

Friday, October 17, 2008

Just missing the lion - he was out trick or treating with Toto! (Yes, I do have a lot of fun making our costumes!)

Another Club Swap

Thursday, October 16, 2008

My club ladies swap cards and this is one that I made to swap. SU's halloween paper is so great!

Past Years Halloween - 2005

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

This year we were dressed up as Betty, Barney and Bamm Bamm. Jackson was by far the cutest!

Club Swap

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

I saw this made up as a gift bag header but turned it into a card and added little feet. Again, top note die, you are amazing!

Spooky Spiders

Monday, October 13, 2008

Well, these little guys are crawling all over demo websites everywhere but I just love them!

Princess Party

Sunday, October 12, 2008

It's official, Jackson has now been to a princess birthday party. As you can see by the photo above, he wasn't much into the princess / prince scene. We made Ally a magic pumpkin coach and put her gift inside. And we are still wearing the glitter... and probably will for days!

Basket die

Saturday, October 11, 2008

These are the little baskets I made for everyone in the shoebox swap as a little thank you.

Shoebox swap great finds

Friday, October 10, 2008

The top picture are some super cute ideas from a super cute girl - Erin! You are the best. And then I won the frankie box from Paula in a doorprize. Aren't the eyeball candy perfect?! (There was candy in the top note package but when you're on a diet, the temptation is too much! Still have the eyeballs though!)

Great Minds Think Alike

Thursday, October 9, 2008

We recently had a shoebox swap and both Vicky and I used the same stamp set. Vicky's is the top card. I do love the top note die!

I L.O.V.E. Halloween

Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Halloween has to be my most favorite holiday. No stress or expectations and lots of opportunities for fun! These projects are what we are doing for my stamp club this month. The little boxes and frankie card were completely inspired from one of my best friends, Vicky Kahlandt. It used the scalloped envelope die. She is a genious! She used them to make smore kits but I thought they would also be cute if you put a cookie or some chocolate dipped pretzels in them.
