3 Hallowe’en cards


I made 3 cards using the same layout. I was inspired by the bag on page 52 of the Holiday Catalog. I mixed up papers and sentiments because I thought the Halloween Night Specialty DSP and all the stamps in the Spooky Fun stamp set were just too great to only do one! And then it was nice to have 3 different cards to send out. See below for the 2 additional cards.



I ADORE the Halloween Scene Edgelits – that TREE! And the fence – goodness I’ll keep these forever. And the best part is – both the stamp set and edgelits are a bundle price!

Let me know if you have any questions, and as always, thanks for stopping by today!

Be happy!


I most definitely believe that when we have happy thoughts, we can have happy days. Even in spite of our trials.

This card uses all retired product, but I hadn’t shared it before, so rather than go another possibly extended length of time without posting, I decided to share it. It’s a great layout that showcases patterned paper. The card base is recycled from a group of really old fashioned cards set I came across, and rather than throw it away, I covered the inside panel with my own paper. Do any of you ever do that?

And speaking of patterned paper – one of SU!’s most popular promotions is on again! Buy 3 get 1 free!

A bright thank you


Excuse the poor photo – but I need to get this card in the mail so took a quick picture.

I love that washi tape, as well as the flower die cut from the Sunshine Wishes die set. I CASEd the layout from this card – it’s just so perfect. I used 2 new In Colors, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. I also used the Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the flower – you really can’t see it too well in the photo, however.

I hope you enjoy your 1st day of October! It’s also World Card Making Day, so I just had to post!

Thanks for stopping by today!

…missing my son, who is so far away at school. Sending him this card I whipped up, again using the retired Project Life kit Everyday Adventure. Like my last card, this was so easy to put together – this time using 1 of each of the 3 sizes of cards that come in these kits. Please see my last post for more details on these versatile kits.

After creating a 4″ x 6″ Pear Pizzazz card base, I added some b&w bakers twine and a wooden heart. I made the sentiment using really old rub-ons from my stash. They don’t look perfect because they are so old; I had a heck of a time getting them on in the first place! I had to MacGyver some of the letters, LOL. So no stamping on this card!

HI Everyday Adventure

I don’t scrapbook – wish I did, but I don’t. I’m a card maker mostly. But I like to buy the Project Life kits because there are SO many cards you can make from them! This card is from a retired kit called Everyday Adventure. I got it in the Clearance Rack last year and have made tons of cards already. The kits come with 100 Double-sided cards in 3 sizes: 4″ x 6″, 4″ x 4″, 3″ x 4″. I trimmed the card with the triangle pattern on it a bit for this 4 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ card.

This card uses 2 of the sheets that came in the kit. I added the Bermuda Bay card base, star sequins, linen thread, and white jagged trim on the top and bottom using a retired edgelit. So easy! I did add dimensionals to the back of the “HI” card, but otherwise it’s pretty flat for better mailing.

You should check out the Project Life kits, and Accessory Packs! They offer many possibilities beyond scrapbooking. There are some in the catalog, as well as the Clearance Rack (as of today). I did get the Seasonal Snapshot kit that is still available to make Fall, Hallowe’en, and Christmas cards with – all 100 cards for $6.40! The Accessory Pack is only $5.20 right now! I can’t wait to use them!
