Forever Fern Birthday

Hello Crafty Friends,

September is coming to an end and I have one last Forever Fern card to share with you.

I have loved working with this Bundle.  I used the gold elements included with the bundle to hold the sentiment I stamped from Fun Stampers Journey.  

I then stamped the inside of the card to  match.

I love this bundle and will use it again.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Bitten By the Bug 2: Halloween


 Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 and the challenge is Halloween.  I tried my hand at a bigger vinyl project this month.


  I started with a blank pizza pan from Dollar Tree.  I then cut the file from Miss Kate's Cuttables with my Cricut in the different colors of vinyl.  I changed the order a little bit to accommodate the pan shape.  

I then added a black, orange and purple bow to the top.  I hot glued the ribbon tails to the sides of the pan so you could read the words.

This was a time consuming project to get everything so straight and out together so they all fit on the pan, but the results are great.  I will definitely be trying this type of project again.

Now it is your turn.  Break out your Cricut and create a Halloween project and share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Love and Laughter Forever

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today's card is a rather simple one, but one that is quite elegant.

Stampin up as part of the Forever Fern bundle have two long and skinny embossing folders.  I took the leaf one and ran it across the card base.  I thought it added some texture to the cardbase.

I then layered the white cardstock and pattern paper on top with foam squares.  Next, I stamped my sentiment and added it to the card,  The pattern paper in this bundle is gorgeous, so I wanted to feature it.

Hello Ring Card

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have a card I fell in love with on Pinterest.  Have you ever had a moment when you are looking through Pinterest and say to yourself, I have to make that card.  This was one of them for me.

I am not sure if it was the ring or just the layout with the swatches of different greens, but I loved and made it right away.

I used the Stampin Up Forever Fern bundle.

Leaves to a Good Friend

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today, I have a fun technique card to share.  


You first start with a piece of cardstock cut 4 1/4 x 11 and fold in half as usual.

Then you cut from one side a piece measuring 3 3/4 inches, give or take.  Then take this piece and cut it in half.  One of these pieces becomes the bottom and one of the pieces becomes the vertical piece that holds the bottom piece on. 

The inside of the card will look like this.


Then decorate as desired.  Here, I used pieces from the Forever Fern bundle from Stampin Up.

Stampin Friends Fall/Outdoor/Halloween Blog Hop



Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Fall/Outdoor/Haloween.  If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Kim's blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Tiziana's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.

Here are the Halloween projects I created for this month’s hop.
Up first is the card I created. 


I used cardstock from Fun Stanmpers Journey and pattern paper from Pebbles to create the base of the card.  I used Black Licorice Twine around the sentiment I stamped from Jack O'Lantern set in Black Licorice ink from Fun Stampers Journey on Butter Cream Cardstock.  
I then used my Cricut to cut out the cute ghost image from Treasure Box Designs. 

A fun and spooky card.
For my project, I created a door hanger that I can stuff with treats and give to my neighbor for Halloween.

  The hanger itself is a Cricut file I had.  I then cut the same pattern paper from Pebbles for the background.    The ghost image is cut from a file from Treasure Box Designs.

I finished the box off by stamping the "Boo" from the JackO'Lantern set from Fun Stampers Journey with Black Licorice ink on Butter Cream Cardstock and placed them around the ghost. 


To finish the project off, I stamped the "Happy Halloween" on Orange Creamcicle cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey from the Happy Halloween ATS with Black Licorice ink.  I then detail cut the words out and popped it up on the pocket.  

 I hope you liked the projects I shared and you will have some ideas after continuing with the hop.  Please leave me a comment and keep on hopping.
