Halloween Note pad

Good morning all....I am back in town again and I am staying put. I had time to do a few of these easy note pads for Halloween.

I got the paper pads from Michael's and AC Moore. They are always in the dollar bin and there are usually lots of designs to choose from.

The paper is from Stampin Up and the stamp I used is from the set Eat Drink and Be Scary. I cut the key at 3 inches from the October 31st Cricut Cart.

The card stock for this pad is 8 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. Some of the pads were a little wider so they were cut at 8 1/2 by 9. This one was one if the skinnier ones so I cut my card stock at 8 1/2 square and scored it at 4 inches and 4 3/8. Adhere the pad and decorate with stamps and ribbon. They make such cute hostess gifts and they are easy to send one of these instead of a card.

Enjoy your day and do something crafty today!

Thanks for stopping by...

Halloween lollypop cards...

Good Morning. As promised...I am back with a couple of cards I did last night. My Grandson told me he wanted to get suckers in the mail. So...being the good grandma, I did some Halloween cards using my Stampin Up stamps and some Halloween cards that I had from last year. It was a cute box of cards...but I had several left, so I made these cards super easy. The hardest part was finding the flat suckers that would mail easy.

Enjoy these fun quick little cards and I will be back soon.


Where have I been???

Well...lets seems I have been gone forever. Really only 11 days. That is a lot for a home body like me. I love to go...but it is the getting there that about does me in. After living with a traveler like Greg all these would think I would be better at it, but not so.

I did have a great time and the wedding in Indiana was a beautiful fall wedding with time spent with wonderful friends and family. The trip to Cali was fun too...not as nice of weather, but had a great time. Then it was back to Indiana to watch Emily and Andy run in the Fort Ben Marathon. Em ran the half and Andy did the whole! They were great and it was another beautiful fall day to enjoy the race. I am home now for a few days before we take off to Charleston for a stay at Two Meeting Street. I promise I will stay home then and craft!

I will be posting some Halloween cards later today. I did them last night...

Come back soon...I promise I won't be gone so long next time!

Are you a good witch?

Well, a trip to the new AC Moore in town got me inspired with this cute new stamp.

I love witches and all things I colored my stamp and used the rickrack punch I got today (with my 50% coupon) to make a quick Halloween card. I did the saying on my computer and printed it out. Punched it with the Stampin Up punches and that was it.

Hope you enjoy...

Have a great weekend and stop back. I got my new Cricut Imagine Machine today and I am busy trying to learn all I can about it. I hope to have something posted in the next couple of days. There is lots to learn about this totally fabulous machine!!!

Happy Friday and Happy Happy Weekend!
