Scrapbooking night! - Halloween Fright Night!

Here is something from a few weeks ago when I had my scrapbooking night!

We created a Halloween themed page using the Freaky Friends stamp set which is ADORABLE!!

Yes, we ALL stamped the little goblins along the bottom with minimal complaining - ha ha!  No seriously every club member did a fabulous job!  That was a big ask to do that much stamping on a Friday night.

Crushed Curry embossed eyeballs

Popped up ghosties made with the Fun Fall framelits.  Say that 10 times fast :)

And a sparkly moon to top it all off!
Halloween excitement is alive in well in our house.  Nathan carved his pumpkin yesterday and I found some Halloween gingerbread houses today for the kids to decorate.  They were on sale so they each got one.  I'll show you the results in the coming days. 

Today is my Coffee, Cookie and Cards class so be sure to check back tomorrow to 1) to see next month's 3C card samples and 2) get a yummy cookie recipe.

 It's been a while since I have posted something new but I have been crazy busy!

Yesterday was capped off with a great Stamp a Stack and 9 happy stampers and 180 cards walked out my door.  Now it's time to get my own Christmas cards started! Ha ha!

I have a great new class planned for Thursday, Nov 27th at 7pm.  If you need some last minute birthday cards or Christmas cards this class is for you!  We will use the Happenings Simply Created Kit to create 15 cards in an evening!

Thanks to my friend Rose Coleman for this fab idea to create Christmas cards with this great kit!

All is Calm Tri Shutter card instructions

Oops, my Monday got away from me and I forgot to post the supply list for yesterday's card but I will share with you the measurements today as well as the list of supplies.

Card base - 5-1/2 x 12, score the base at 4" and 8"
1" in from the top of the card cut between 4" and 10"
1" in from the bottom of the card cut between 4" and 10"
Score again at the 6" and 10" mark up to the cut line on the top and bottom of the card.

I love the tri shutter cards but this one is especially cool because I like to decorate the full card front!

Have fun making these cards!

A whirlwind weekend!

And I can't believe I survived!

Scrapbook club Friday day and night, Sat - hockey in the afternoon and a class in the evening and Sun - hockey in the early afternoon, Kids class in the late afternoon and a workshop in the evening - PHEW!

I'm tired just typing that (not to mention that it's past 11 on the Sunday night as I'm typing).

So my quick post before I hit the sheets are of last week's club cards.  Oh yeah and earlier in the week I had my Cardmaker's Club.  I think I may forgo the early morning workout tomorrow :)

Here is a tri shutter card I created with the All is Calm Designer Series paper set.

And a close up of the front of the card.

And our technique this month was the Puffy Card technique or Cotton Ball.
 So much fun!  I'll post a list of my supplies later on Monday in case you are wondering "how'd she do that?"

Wonderous Wreath - Summer Wedding

Here is one that is completely off the map from what you might consider possible with this wreath set. I found a similar sample to this on Pinterest and wanted to re-create a wedding card for my niece.

Hope you had a "Wonderous" weekend with family and friends.

Happy Thanksgiving weekend

Sorry I didn't post yesterday but we were out WAY late at the Vancouver / Calgary hockey game.  Bad mom moment when we rolled in at 11:40 on a school night!!  Eeeek!  Oh well, it is the first game of the season!  Sacrifices!

We had a great time or at least Van fans did.  It was definitely not the smoothest, slickest game but fun was had and we won 4-2!

I have loads to share next week as I made a variety of cards using the Wonderous Wreath stamp set and framelits.  Be sure to check back next week!

Have a great Thanksgiving weekend!

Halloween Kids camp recap

This past weekend we had a super fun Kids camp!  Don't you just love it when all things go as planned.

First we made these adorable pumpkins for a center piece for their Thanksgiving dinners. I actually helped make 90 of these for a Stampin Up event and they were so cute I had to try them again with the kids. I believe the creator of this idea is Tamara Bertram.  Thanks for the idea Tamara!

 Then my Club Create group made this beautiful door hanger.  One of my downline shared this idea she found on Pinterest and I thought it was beautiful.  Thank you to Carol Payne for the original idea.

 And last but not least BOO bags!   Have you ever Boo'd anyone?  I remember doing this with the kids when they were little but not since.  So after we did the kids camp the boys each made 3 ghosts and a simple version of the bag of candy (aka ziploc bags) and boo'd a few on our street.  Can't wait to see who else will have a ghost in their window.

Here is the poem.

Halloween is in the air!
We boo’d your house,
but don’t be scared.

We like you a lot and think you’re neat,
So we left you this bag of Halloween treats.

Who could we be?
We never will tell.
That would break the BOO fun spell!

Happy Halloween!

I also added these instructions too.

Hang this ghost in your window to let neighbours know you have been “Boo’d”.  Copy this ghost poem and “Boo” 3 other friends.  

Have a great day!

Stampin UP Bingo wrap up!


I had such a fantastic time at my first ever Stampin UP Bingo night I just had to share the fun in pics!
Everyone had a spot with a pop corn bag, bingo dauber and a fun welcome gift!

Ha ha even my table cloth matched the fun popcorn bags.

Pete did a wonderful thing for me and popped popcorn for almost an hour!  3 kinds - White cheddar, Jalapeno Jack and Cheesy Dill. 

Smiling Bingo players!  Can you tell who the big winner was?

Time to stamp the make n' take!

More smiling Stampin UP Bingo players

And a FULL prize basket of Stampin UP goodies + all the proceeds from extra card sales went to the winner!
And the two cards we made this evening.

 It was CRAZY fun and I will definitely be having one of these again in the new year with the Occasions Catalogue!  Everyone went home with a great prize and even the non-winners got a prize too!

Thanks for sharing in the fun!
