Well, I spent the weekend back at home and went to a crop! I had a lot of fun with Lisa, Jana and my other papercrafting friends from home. I made plenty of new pages which I will post in the next couple of days and of course, we spent most of the time talking! I spent the night with Lisa and we woke up early the next day and started playing again in her wonderful craftroom. I made these cute lilttle spooky treat bags (I named them Frank and Mumford) to give to my co-workers this week for Halloween. I gto the idea from Jana, who got it from Chicnscratch Blog. That's probably the end of my Halloween "madness" as I am getting ready to move on to Thanksgiving and Christmas. And of course, continue to make scrapbook pages. Happy Halloween this week to everyone!
Recipe for Frank: Wild Wasabi SU paper, Basic Black cardstock, google eyes, black Sharpie, pop dots, and green brads
Recipe for Mumford the Mummy: Vintage Cream cs from PTI, Vintage touch ink in chai, and camoile, colorbox chestnut, colorbox dune, Basic Black cs, and black brads

I am really happy about getting back into my craftroom! In keeping with the season, I decided to make a layout with last year's Halloween pictures. I know I am a year late, but I have decided that it is a fruitless effort to scrapbook in chronological order. I am just doing it when I have time and when I see a picture I like. It makes my hobby less stressful and more enjoyable. I have had this paper for over 3 years. I bought it on clearance for $2 at Wal-Mart and finally put it to good use! I made the letters on my Cricut using my mini-monograms cartrdige. The buttons and ribbon came along with the paper. The baby is mine! lol... Enjoy!

This was a quick card I made last night to just unwind. It's not my best work, but it was fun. I have had the stamp set for about 3 years and it's one of my favorites, but I have never made the time to use it. The stamps are from SU and the paper is just a basic colored cardstock from Hobby Lobby. I colored the images with my Wondercolor crayons and my water color pencils.
Front: Witching you...
The second image is the inside of the card.

I managed to make 2 posts in 2 days and made 6 more cards last night... that must be the reason for all of the rain. Anyway, here is the 2nd card for the stationary set. I am planning on putting 6 cards total, 2 each of 3 designs, along with some name tags and other tags. Hopefully, I can complete them over the next couple of weeks and move on to some other Holiday projects! TFL!

Dust off all the spider webs from this blog because...BOO! I'm BAAAACKKK!!
I know I probably won't be posting as much as I'd like, but I am back in my craftroom and finally got a chance to get some work done this weekend. I am SUCH a cheater though. I decided to make my co-workers each a stationary set for Christmas and at the rate I am working decided I better get busy now. So, I made 6 of this card. Paper is SU and Basic Grey Lemonade. I said I am a cheater because I just copied one that was given to me. They only difference is the patterened paper. Anyway, this card was pretty simple, just the paper, some ink and a SU stamp... thanks for looking and continue to check back in now that I am up and running again!
