Are you ready for Halloween!

I just can't think of any occasion the jar set can't cover!  The jar of haunts set is just too sweet not to creat some cards from!  I used some extra thick clear embossing powder to give it a real glass look!

Calling All Paper Fanatics!

Great Offer from Stampin' Up to stock up!

Just like in my wardrobe when I create cards I tend to not use patterns!  However I may be doing more pattern mixing in the future as this is a deal most won't be able to pass up!

Another one...

You may eventually tire of these posts however I will not tire creating the cards from Thoughful Branches. 
We've had a slight hint that fall will in fact eventually arrive. It's gotten my into making ginger cookies (my favorite tried and true recipe) and making fall inspired cards.

Thoughtful Branches....sorry you couldn't stick around!

Stampin Up released a limited stamp and big shot thinlit called thoughtful branches. I fell in love!  This is just one of the examples, (thank you Pinterest for the idea).  I'll take pictures of the others I've done!

A venture away from cards!

So I know mostly (like 99%) of my posts are regarding card and paper crafting. I do however venture outside the realm of paper!  I love making costumes for my kids. In the past it's been Cinderella, Ariel etc....then it was Wall-E and Thomas the train. As my son has gotten older we have ventured to transformers and video game characters. Not exactly my niche. 

However knowing my costume making for the kids are numbered I gave forayed outside my comfort zone into the world of cosplay!  Enter into the world of EVA foam. Oh it's been fun. Here are the chest and back plates for my son's destiny inspired armor. 

I'm currently working on the shin guards and knee pads. Will post more soon. Who knew I'd be using my heat gun for something other than embossing on paper!

A little Christmas in August!

It was hard not to go crazy with the holiday cards. This year Stampin Up's paper is just so great!  They have everything from whimsical to traditional holiday patterns. 

Here are the cards we made at our Christmas in August card club!

The tag was created using the everyday jars die with the big shot and the jar of cheer stamp set. I also pulled in some ultra thick embossing powder to make the jar really look like glass.
