Halloween goodies...

After getting some complaints from my "sweet" Sister...about not posting often enough on here. I have gotten busy today and finally got some pictures taken. It is not that I don't craft a lot...it just that I don't always take the time to take pictures and blog about my projects. I guess I need to step it up...or my #1 fan may quit following my blog.

I did a lot of things using some of my new Stampin Up goodies. I got both of the templates for the boxes off the Internet. Split coast stampers has great templates....and most you can download and print right on your card stock. That is what I did. The paper I used on the treat boxes was the new Stampin Up Autumn Spice. It is beautiful double sided paper...perfect for all your fall projects.

The Stampin Up stamps I used were Tiny tags, Matchbox messages, Got treats, Batty for you, Eat drink and be scary, and Medallion. Love them all.

Thank you so much for stopping by...if you have any questions please leave me a message.

Have a great Tuesday and I will see you soon.

Happy Anniversary...

Hey all...I wanted to share something I made for my Hubby for our Anniversary this past weekend. I had found this really cute chipboard and Acrylic album at a little scrapbook store in my many travels. I can't even tell you who made the album...as it was packaged without any info on it.

I used all black and white papers...so I decided to change all my pictures into black and whites.

I used lots of different stamps...some from stampin up and some other random stamps I had.

It is still a work in progress as I know I have some other pictures I would like to put in it.

If you have any questions please leave me a comment. I love hearing from you.

Thanks for stopping by and come back and visit soon!

I'm Back....

Hey all...sorry it has been so long since I have posted anything...but I have been gone for a few days and not had a chance a do much since I got home. I had a wonderful trip back home for Kate and John's wedding ( which was beautiful ) and a great time on my first trip to Boston. What a great city. I had a wonderful time doing some sight seeing and of course eating my way through the city.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be posting some new cards and layouts in the next day or so.

My Happy Place...

Hey all...well, I haven't been crafting much...I have been cleaning lots! I finally got my new craft table and I love it! It was a challenge getting it together as Greg was gone and I was not about to wait until Friday for someone to get home to help me....so where there is a will...there really is a way! I found the craft table at Target.com and it was just like the one I fell in love with at Pottery Barn...only a whole lot less money. Anyway...long story short...it made me clean up my space and get things organized again. I am forever trying to find the best way to store all of my toys and this is the best I have come up with. I also love it because it is counter height and I stand up so much when I craft...so it saves my back! The rest of the furniture is from Pottery Barn Kids...we got these pieces when we first built our house. They have worked great...and I love the color red so they kind of fit my space perfectly.

Thanks for looking at my favorite space...leave a comment or a question if you have any.

I am off to mess up my room!

Fast Fun Notes....

Morning all...I have been playing with some of my new stamps from Stampin Up and I love the Fun Fast Notes. They are fun and fast and a very easy way to do some quick cards. There are 8 stamps in the set and lots of different occasions to pick from. I did some cards last night and they were very quick to do and turned out cute. I did all different size cards and on the baby card I used the little diaper pin stamp from Short & Sweet.

Enjoy...leave me a note if you have any questions or comments. I love to hear from you.

Have a great Wednesday...half way to the weekend...Yippee!!

Artful Legacy Stamps

Good morning and happy Monday....I hope this finds all of you doing well and enjoying these hot summer days.

I got busy last night and made a couple of cards with some new stamps that Christine sent me. They were so fun to use and really easy to use my Copic Markers with. I just stamped and did a little coloring and they were done...Easy Peasy!

Hope you enjoy and stop by Artful Legacy's blog and take a look at all the ideas.

Have a great day!
