Summer in the Fall

Hi Crafters! I'm posting a very summery card in the fall.  The reason for it?  It's my aunts birthday!  We have visited Hawaii together a couple of times and she is wanting to go back w/ her hubby soon.  So I made her a Hawaiian flower card to give her some sunshine until she can get there.  This was a super simple card but I love the colors.  :)  Here you go...

Episode 125: Basketball Spinner Card

Hi Crafters! It was my nephews birthday and he is an avid basketball player so the thought I had was to make a spinner card where the basketball was going into the basket.  I usually use a Stampin' Up label punch to make spinner cards but I wanted it to curve so I had to think how to do that.  I thought, what about a smile?  :)  So I used the smile off of the Snow Friends Cricut Cartridge to make my curved shot.

He Shoots!
 He Scores!

Episode 123: Halloween Evening Card

Hi Crafters! It's the first Wednesday of the month which means a new challenge is up on the Simply Crafts Challenge blog w/ Glora and I! :)  Woo Hoo!  Both of us got the new Create a Critter 2 cartridge so we just had to use one of their cute Halloween cuts.  I chose the vampire bat cut because it looked adorable.  So if you have this cartridge use this cut.  We are also opening it up to any Halloween project because it's our 1 year anniversary and wanted a lot of participation.  :)  Only thing you need to make sure on is that it is a NEW project, not a past one.  Here is my project:

To participate in the challenge head on over to the Simply Crafts Challenge blog.  You need to submit your project(s) before October 16th.  Also head on over to Glora's blog to check out her project and how she put it together by going to her blog HERE.  She really is one of the most amazing crafters out there and the nicest!  :)  Look through her projects, you'll be amazed.  :)

A new project will be up on Friday as well so be sure to stop by.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Crafters! I was asked by my aunt to make a poster for a lesson she was doing in school. Of course I said yes! It got me crafting and I'd do anything for her. :) She was doing a lesson on 'Synthesizing'.  I was like, huh?  lol  She gave me the idea of putting a pie on there because it takes many ingredients to come together to make it.  So that gave me the idea of making a kitchen counter look and put ingredients on it and with the finished cooked pie. 

Something she also wanted me to do is to cut in into puzzle pieces.  So on the back of the poster I drew puzzle pieces and then just hand cut them out.  I forgot to take a pic of that so just use your imagination.  :)

I have two more projects for you this week.  I'm going to try and do videos for both of them.  This is for you Lane!  :)  (She kicked my rear end last week and told me to craft and video more)  lol

All my paper came from the k&i Memories Classic Prints paper pad.  LOVE the papers in this paper pad.  I got to figure out where I got it so I can get another one when I start running out of my fave sheets.

See you later in the week!
