Getting Ready for Halloween!

Facebook is full of back to school pictures. Soon enough we will be seeing pix of Halloween costumes, treats, and parties.  Get a head start on this year's scrapbook pages by using EZ Laser Designs as the foundation. Then pile on the embellishments from the Eyelet Outlet.
All that you need are the photographs!

I love glitter washi tape! It doesn't flake off at all!! 
Aren't those spiders great?

Confetti Birthday!!

Confetti is the best!!
(Except when you have to sweep it up...hehehe.)

But seriously...use Mini Glue Dots (R) to adhere sequins and bling in a cascading effect along the side of a birthday card. This makes a quick and cheerful card for any age!!

Stamp and sentiment: The Project Bin "Born Yesterday"
Rhinestone Bling: Eyelet Outlet


Birthday Preparations!!

Today, I will be making my birthday cake..
(My bday cake is tomorrow.)
But in the mean time, here is a paper birthday cake to entice your crafty tasty buds!

While "Born Yesterday" from The Project Bin has a cake stamp in it,
I thought I'd go big and make a full sized cake.  

Pearl strips and washi tape from the Eyelet Outlet dazzle this pink frosted confection!! 
I used a pearl for the flame on top of the candle!

So...do you want to know what I am baking?
A chocolate chip brownie cheese cake! YUMMY YUM YUM!

B/c that's how I roll on bdays!


Birthday Envelopes

When you are older...and it is your birthday,
you might get gift cards instead of actual birthday gifts.
So..jazz up the little piece of plastic with a fun envelope card!

(At least this is what happened to my husband earlier this week!)

With plenty of room to decorate,
you have a pocket to place a small note card and the gift card.
Simple take an A2 envelope and seal it up. Slice off about 1.25 - 2 inches. 
Use your paper crimper to crimp the bottom portion. The, like magic...
the part you sliced off becomes the "lid."

I bet these would look great for Christmas too!!

I adore these large, bold sentiments.  
Hey, if you are giving a card, you are trying to make a statement. 
And these are statements!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
My bday is NEXT WEEK!


A bit of pop!

Bright colors pop against black....
and I used that to my advantage on this birthday card
that features "Born Yesterday" by The Project Bin.

I used brads and embellishments from the Eyelet Outlet.
Don't you love those die cuts?  
They also add a bit of interest to the amazing sentiment.

Now that I think about it...
my bday is just around the bend...
but Today...is my husband's birthday!

I hope you all have a great day!! 
Thanks for visiting my blog!


State of Mind

I have been far and away too busy to stamp as of late. The DIY Pavilion at Girls' Camp is going to be stellar!! While my art room and front room are spilling over with goodies for a week of camping, I received this new set fromThe Project Bin...called Maybe Christmas. I used it tonight (note the night time picture quality!!) for this week's Splitcoaststampers F4A335...Christmas in July challenge!! One, I have ONE Christmas card created for 2016. haha...now, to actually mail it!
