Spiderman Gifts

One of the girls in my office has a 5 year old son, he is the cutest little thing.  He happens to love Spiderman, so I decided to make a couple of spidey things for his birthday.

Frosty -- Stamping Up

I realized this evening that I need to have all my Christmas cards done by December 1st, and that is only 30 days,the 12 Christmas cards I've made so far will not be enough.  So I got out my Xmas sets and started making cards. This card comes from an old set that I haven't used in a few years. ziy was easy to do, and only required a bit of coloring.  I used the Frosty stamp set, and colored the hat with basic grey and creamy caramel, I colored the scarf and leaf with cherry cobbler and wild wasabi.
I heat embossed the sentiment.

Happy Halloween

Happy halloween everyone,  I did up 60 bags for the kids tonight,  I only had 20 kids come to the door.  Back when my kids were small I would have about 200 kids to the door.  Oh well, there is lots of extra candy in the house.

I made these boxes for my kids and for the grandchildren.  I cut the boxes from Happy Hauntings, at 10 inches, I then cut the ghost from the same cartridge, I cut it at 3 inches.  The ribbon is from Michaels.

Teddy bear parade gift tags

These tags come from Teddy Bear Parade and Art Philosophy.  I think they are adorable.  I saw similar tags on Pinterest, but changed them up a bit.  Love the way they turned out.

Christmas gift tags

 At the Crop and Create in Cornwall I decided to work on Christmas items.  I usually make all of my own gift tags, cards and some gifts.  Here are two of the gift tags I made, I used my cricut for these.
The cartridges I used are, Winter Frolic for the tree cut at 2.75, Simply charmed for the Stocking cut at 2.75 (hid the face on the stocking),  Scalloped square from Art Philosophy cut at 3.0 inches, and the two layers of squares from Art Philosophy cut at 2.5 and 2.25 inches.  Inspiration for these tags came from Pinterest.

Sometimes you just enjoy.....

Your craft space.  Tonight I'm not crafting, I'm just enjoying the relaxation I feel when I'm in my craftroom.  Its peaceful and calming.  As messy as it maybe, it is organized and my heaven.

2015 Crop and Create

Wow, what a great weekend I just had.  I attended the Crop and Create in Cornwall.  This event is so well run.  I had a great time with my friends and I even ran into Rhonda Lamourie who I haven't seen in years.  I'm looking forward to attending some events in Renfrew with her.
As usual I packed way too much stuff for the weekend, too much paper and too many stamp sets.  Last year I brought 6 bags to the crop, this year 4 bags.  Next year I'm going to try and get it down to 3 bags.  I didn't do a lot of scrapbooking pages this time around, only three, but I did get a jump start on my Christmas crafts.
Thanks to Catherine and all her staff for such a great time.
