Zombie Birthday

On my birthday, we went to our favorite scrapbook store, Violette's in Lakeland.  I treated myself to some new stamp sets, including this one, called Undying Love by Sugar Pea Designs.

My lovely little Zombie girl was colored using Copics and then fussy cut.  The banner was made using my new handy dandy Cricut Explore and a Scary Spiders dies from Memory Box.  The drippy goo on top of the sentiment is from a Martha Stewart punch I bought some time ago.

I've been anxiously awaiting tonight, American Horror Story is back and I can hardly wait!

Stamps:  Sugar Pea Designs-Undying Love
Ink:  Versafine, Momento
Paper:  Snap, Bazzill, Recollections, Velllum
Misc:  Copics, brads, baker's twine, pop up dots, Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch, white gel pen, Memory Box Scary Spiders

A Birthday Card for My Dad

Today is my favorite kind of day off.  It's cloudy, rain in the forecast, and I don't have to go anywhere!  It's perfect scary movie watching crafty kind of day!

Here is a card I made for my Dad.  He has always loved model railroads and when I went home for Father's Day, I found my old bedroom was now converted into a railroad of Carson City during the Gold Rush.  It was very impressive!  So, a card with trains was very fitting.  Some of the very first dies I bought where Quickutz, and this cute little train was one of them.  I did buy it especially for my Dad.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Big Greetings
Ink:  Versfine, Mememto
Paper:  October Afternoon, Bazzill, Recollections, MME
Misc:  Papertrey Ink alphabet dies, foam mounting tape, Quickutz train die

Gifts for My Favorite Teachers

I decided to use my Petite Places dies & stamps to make some back to school gifts for my favorite teachers.  Although they have been back to school for a month, I'm sure they will enjoy this special treat.

I decided that I'm not very good at the stamping part, so I used the dies to cut out card stock.  I meant to take pictures before I put the domes on them, but I forgot.  It's kind of hard to see them, but I am very pleased with the way they came out.  I had some gold star glitter in my stash which I think goes quite well with the teacher theme.  It reminded me of those stars that you had to lick that the teachers would put on our papers.  I guess I'm dating myself!

I saw these cut little jars in Wal-Mart, so I made a smaller one for my friend.  She is working at a charter school this year, and they have a strict no junk food policy for teachers and students.  So, she will have to enjoy the candy part at home, if her husband and sons don't find it first!  I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped circle as none of the Nestabilities seemed to be the right size.

Stamps:  Papertrey Ink-Petite Places School
Ink;  Versafine, Papertrey Ink
Paper:  Recollections, Bazzill
Misc:  Mason jars, baker's twine, candy, star glitter, Petite Places School dies,  Cricut Design Space

Disney 2016

Happy Labor Day!  I've decided not to labor at work today, but to labor in craft central while rocking out to some tunes.  Today, would have been Freddie Mercury's 70th birthday, so I'm listening to some of my favorite Queen songs.

Here is the official video to one my favorites:

Paper:  Recollections, Bazzill, Bo Bunny

Scrapbook Pages For Your Favorite Wizard

I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.  I chose to try and make some scrapbook pages.  Some of my family members are huge Harry Potter fans and since I've been having a hard time finding Harry Potter themed scrapbook supplies, it was time for me to make my own.

I cut 1/2 inch strips of card stock to make the background paper.  The grey brick paper was made using my Scor-Pal and then sponged some black ink to give it more definition. 

This is a close up of my boy wizard and his super smart owl.

I received a Cricut Expression for my birthday.  I've been practicing a lot with it.  It's amazing how much cleaner the cuts are with the 365 degree blade.

To add a little magic to the the page, I added some paper punched stars that can be adhered to the pages.

The banners are my favorite part of this page.  It can be put on the page anyway you want to have it.

P.S.  If you are interested, I will be listing these and some more in my Etsy Shop.

Paper:  Recollections, Bazzil, Color Bok
Ink:  Memento
Stamps:  Jo-Ann Fabrics Alphabet
Misc:  Pop up dots, Cricut Create a Friend and Create A Critter Cartridges, Scor-Pal, toothpicks, baker's twine, paper punches, black Sharpie, glasses brads
