Nevermore for Chantre

Due to my inability to function during a few days of mass craziness, my Aunt Chantre only gets 2 card ideas this time!

We used the Nevermore Paper Packet, the Silver Metallic Tape, the Silver Sequins, and the Little Monsters stamp set.

Card #1:

Card #2:

Not super happy with my coloring on the little witch girl... but not bad for a crazy person!

Good luck Chantre!!!

October Layout

Ummm... oops!

Here is the layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking group ALREADY made... since it's late October...:

We used the Nevermore Paper Packet, Silver Metallic Tape, and Silver Sequins. LOVE the new Silver Metallic Tape!!!

These are still some of my favorite letter stamps ever made:

Any day I get to use my matching Martha Stewart spider web punches is a GOOD day:

The pictures going on this one are a group of disgusting snails attacking the pretty pumpkin on the front porch that my daughter painstakingly painted to look like a silver spider web... ew...

Anyway, Happy almost Halloween!!!

KL Scrapbook Sketch #10

It's layout sketch time at Kiwi Lane!!!

Go to their blog HERE to see how to WIN!

I LOVE Halloween, so I LOVE this sketch:

And here is my layout:

Yes, I know my "cookies" are messy. They are supposed to match the 3-year-old's cookies in the pictures...

They actually took a SURPRISING amount of time to make:

First I traced my Kiwi Lane templates and cut them out like normal. Then I traced another time and cut wiggly just inside the shape for my "frosting". I inked both edges to make them stand out. Finally I grabbed my Liquid Glass, enamel dots, Pearl Pens, and micro beads and just went nuts! Repeat...

Perfect toddler Halloween Cookies!!!

Go make your own!

Here is my sample:

I changed it up a little bit... this came together SO FAST!!! Love my Kiwi Lane templates and Close To My Heart stamps!

Just the right amount of dimension on this one:

Mail-able but not flat!

Here is sketch #2:

Here is my sample:

I really liked this sketch just the way it was! Very clean and pretty!

A bit more dimension on this one:

I learned that when you line a shape with bakers twine you don't have to add foam dots... it pops up all by itself!
