O Christmas Tree

Christmas Card production has been in full swing in the craft room the past two weeks and now all the cards are prepped for mail out on December 1st!

Here is the first card design of the 2015 Holiday Season. I took the inspiration for this card from a card by Lynn Dunn at stamptasticdesigns.com (http://stamptasticdesigns.com/2013/08/06/o-christmas-tree/).

Sugar Skull - Halloween Card

My Silhouette Cameo got quite the workout this Halloween season! Here is another great card made using a die I cut out with my Cameo. I had a lot of fun with this one, although I had to create a larger card than I'm used to (5x7) in order to fit everything in. I just love how spooky this one turned out.

Witches Brew - Halloween Card

I found this card by Olena Levchenko on pinterest (see her original here: http://scrappingcottage.blogspot.ca/2014/10/happy-halloween-card.html), but I didn't have the die she used, nor did I have the patience to wait for it to come in. So instead I decided to get creative and try and find enough similar elements in the Silhouette Studio to piece together my own witchy scene. I am so pleased with how it turned out!

Spooktacular Witch - Halloween Card

The idea for this card came from the fabulous Michelle Zindorf (see her original design here: http://zindorf.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/09/29/a-witchie-night-tutorial-125/).

I didn't make my card in the exact same manner, but the spirit and look are the same. It's a bit labour intensive, and be prepared to get your fingers inky!

The Headless Horseman Rides - Halloween Card

I saw this image available in the Silhouette Studio Store and I knew I just had to have it for Halloween Cards. I love how this turned out, and it was really quite simple to make.

Halloween - Creepy Crawly Card

So, after a very busy summer and a hectic back to school I am finally returning to the craft room to get some much needed crafting done. I hope you all had a great summer too and are enjoying the fabulous fall foliage (great for lots of pictures!).

Halloween Cards are top of my "to-do" list these days, so over the next few weeks, that's what you'll see the most. I hope you enjoy them, and as always, feel free to comment and/or share your projects.

Wild about the birthday boy

As a parent of a grade school boy, I end up attending a good number of little boy birthday parties. Well, little boys don't really care about home made cards, if they care about cards at all. So, instead of making cards I decided to keep it simple and just make some cute birthday tags to attach to gifts.

Here's the first:
