Happy Halloween


So this card is a bit goofy.  I turned the owl upside down and turned him into a bat.  Silly, but I think it’s cute.  My husband didn’t love this card.  He suggested I try again.  Seriously though, if you can’t be silly for Halloween, then when can you?? 

Here in the Northwest it is predicted that Halloween will be a cool & wet night.  Normally my husband and I dress up.  This year we planned to wear our caveman/cavewoman costumes for handing out treats, but I think it’s going to be too cold.  That means it’ll be a good time to dress in our Hogwarts robes instead.  They are wool and very warm.  I just hope we have some kids show up in the rain to get some treats.  We’ll see. 


Hope you have a happy, safe, & fun Halloween!

Halloween Fun (& A Little Something Scary!)


This may be my favorite Halloween card ever.  It’s so cute and fun, yet so easy to make.  I especially love the itsy spider because I like spiders.  (I caught and released one that looked just like this today!  He was happy to go outside into the sunshine instead of hanging out on my computer desk.)  I really don’t make many cards for Halloween, but I do make special treat bags.  This year I’m using the September Paper Pumpkin to create some cute things. 


And now for the really scary part of this post….


Remember the 15% Off stamp sale I told you about on Sunday?  Well it’s almost over.  Eeekkkk!  If you haven’t ordered yet, be sure to do so before the sale ends on Friday, October 23rd.  Not saving $$$ is really, really scary!

Did Someone Say Sale??? (Plus weekly deals...)

There is a big sale happening for the next couple of days and you don’t want to miss it!  You know those stamp sets in the holiday catalog that are on your wish list?  Now they are 15% off!  Still have a long list of stamps you want from the annual catalog?  Those stamps are 15% off too!  It’s a great time to buy items on your wish list, get ready for the holidays, and even pick out gifts for crafty friends. 
**Stamp sets that are part of a bundle are already discounted, so there will be no additional discount on the bundles.  Also, the hostess sets are not included in the sale.**

Also, here are this week's deals:

All About Ornaments


Are you attending the 2CousinsEvents crop on the 17th of this month?  If so, I’d love to have you sign up for my ornament themed class.  We’ll be making the ornament, as well as two Christmas cards. 

And if you’re not local, you can still make the Christmas ornament.  I have all the instructions listed here.   It takes a little time to make, but it’s SO worth every second.  Happy Stamping!

World Cardmaking Day!

Calling all card makers!  Today is your day.  It’s World Cardmaking Day.  Are you going to craft today?  I hope to make at least one card today and hope that you’ll do the same.  Here was a set of cards I taught the scrapbookers to make last month at the 2Cousins crop.  These cards are surprisingly easy because they are primarily composed of designer paper.  I love them! 
Happy Card Making!
