Halloween Franky

This card I made for a demonstrator swap that I am part of this weekend. The card base is the Big Shot Top Note die. You fold the cardstock and insert it into the Big Shot. You can see a tutorial on how to do this on Patty Bennett's blog. She posted this last year around Christmas.

I thought it would be cute if Frankenstein was the card himself, rather than him popped into a base of the card. Hope I explained that right.

This would also be cute using Cello bags, I might do that for my son's class. I bet the kids would love it!

Super easy. Layer the black c/s on the Green Galore before running it through the Big Shot, that will ensure his "hair" fits perfectly with his head! I used Dotto adhesive so that I could take it off to "cut" his hair.

I sponged his eye lids, nose and around the edges of his face with Green Galore.


Ink: Green Galore
C/S: WW, BB, Green Galore
Accessories: Big Shot, Top Note Die, 3/4" & 1" circle punches, Round Tab Punch, Signo White Gel Pen, Sponges, Basic Black Stamp-n-Write marker

Have fun with this!

Spooky Halloween

This is a card that I made for my stamper club. We did four projects, three using the Spooky Treats rub-ons. I found this layout on SplitCoast and thought it worked well with the skeleton image from the set "From the Crypt". Wondering were the birds on the ribbon came from? They are rub-ons! Yep, you can rub-on to our Grosgrain ribbon. How cool is that?! The "Oct 31" is also a rub on. Rub on to the cardstock and then punch out.


Set: From the Crypt
C/S: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, WW
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: Spooky Treats Rub-ons, DSP Cast-a-Spell, Old Olive Grosgrain ribbon, 1/4" punch (which I did not realize was retired!), Large Oval Punch

Hayden's 1st day of School

Hayden started Kindergarten on August 25th. He was so nonchalant about his first day. I think that Dad & I were more nervous & excited than he was. We took pictures at the house before getting into the car and then at the school. His school is Vista Grande Elementary. We had him stand in front of the school sign.

There is a picture of Hayden standing on "California" on the map of the states that is in the middle of the school yard. And another of him in his class working on a project. The teachers(he has two, they job share) had the parents spend the first hour in the class, so we got to watch them do some projects, have circle time and then recess. It was cool. My baby boy has started school. Cry, Cry!

Thanks for visiting,
