Witch is Cuter!

This wee owl witch from AMuse stamps is hands down cuter then any other witch in my book! 

My friend Pat and I were talking the other day about how we never really considered Halloween a big holiday-let alone send cards out for it. But I am a convict- I mean convert to the whole spooky, creepy, ghostly Halloween thing.  I have been having HUGE fun creating lots and lots of truly spooktacular and sometimes bloodcurdling cards this year. I started sharing in my last post and will continue throughout the Halloween season.

Both this card and the haunted hill card in my last post are among the cards I will be teaching at One Little Spark on Oct. 23 at 12:00.

Have a ghoulish day- I am off to clear the cobwebs and to create more Halloween cards!

Halloween in 90 Degrees!

It is kinda hard to think about Halloween when it is 90 degrees out, but I made this card when it was much cooler.

I thought I was the only one to think of this but I have seen it on other blogs. My "haunted houses" in this trifold card are the new ginger bread house set from AMuse. Some dark paper and black embossing and we have a spooktacular card.

I am looking forward to Sunday when the weather cools off again.

Tomorrow I will be at One Little Spark in NJ teaching with Pat Thorpe the owner the annual Holiday Card Extravaganza. Come on down it is cooler by the ocean!!

Last of the Note Cards

Here are the last three note cards that I made for my friend Cathy's set. I happen to really like these. Why you ask?

Geez- flowers and butterflies!! A perfect combination!

I hope you all stopped in at the Memory Box- "Outside the Box" blog yesterday for my first blog posting there as a designer.

Have a wonderful weekend and take some time to do something creative.

I am soooooo excited.....

When I was taking some Memory Box classes a month ago I had an opportunity to chat with MB owner Dave Brethauer.  He was surprised to see me in class and said-"Sue T. I didn't know you would be here. We have to talk." I responded "yeah Dave let's do that!"

During the break in classes Dave asked me to be a travel teacher as well as designer for Memory Box!! I could barely answer him I was so excited. Naturally the answer was yes!

Many of you know I tried out for the MB design team last year and didn't make it. It just goes to show, all good things come to those who wait.

My first blog posting will be this Friday September 10th on the Memory Box- Outside the Box blog.


I hope you will hop on over and leave a comment and support this dream come true of mine.

Here is a sneak peak of my posting.

Happy Labor Day Everyone!

Back to School

My grand niece starts first grade. Such a milestone in a child's life. I remember my first grade experience. My brother was in 6th grade when I started elementary school. Our school did not have a cafeteria so we ate lunch in the classroom. The first graders had lunch in the 6th graders room for some reason. I cried and cried till I got to eat my lunch at my brothers desk. 

I picked up this stamp from MyFavoriteThings during a recent trip to Scraptasia. I paper pieced the little girl's skirt and sweater  as well as the chalk board. the white pigment ink on the black card stock really looks like a chalk board.

I hope you all are enjoying the most beautiful weekend we have had in months. Spend time outside!

Come back tomorrow for a special announcement!

Are you tired yet....

of the note cards? I hope not.

About a month ago Paper Source opened in Suburban Square in Ardmore. It is a fun and crafty store. They have a great selection of 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of card stock as well as lots of decorative papers. But guess what else they have- Yep Stamps!!!! They are carrying Hero Arts, Penny Black and they have their own line of stamps too. The lily of the valley note cards you see here were made with a stamp from the Paper Source.

The Paper Source offers paper crafting classes and they have a silhouette machine they can demo if you ask. I am so thinking about getting one!

The above cards were made with my Paper Source stamp and colored with copic markers and mounted on Memory Box paper

Enjoy and be creative!
