Spooky Jar revisited

Well, several people now have said that they can't see what's on the jar. So I took out all the candy and took a new picture.





No worries. I'll put the candy back in it. One of you will be lucky enough to get to take him, the jar and the candy home just in time for Halloween.



It's the Spooky Spider from the Decor Elements collection. It's available through the end of October only. It comes in black and white and Small, Medium, or Large

Halloween, Spiders and Stamp Club...Oh My!

Check out the cute jar! Place an order with me in October and get an entry. Orders can be of any size and may be placed directly with me or on my website (link below)I'll be drawing a name (could be yours!) on October 28th. The lucky winner gets the decorated jar (it has the Spooky Spider Decor Elements on it) and the candy that's in it. Who said Halloween isn't fun for adults?









Fall is here. Halloween is approaching. Here are the 2 cards we made at this month's Stamp Club.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





I really love the Upsy Daisy set. The bold flowers have a lot of potential. I'll be playing with that set for a long time. I've had the Haunting Halloween set for over a year and I still love it. The cauldron was even a pot of gold for this past year's St. Paddy's day cards.

The glitter on the witch card was done with Iridescent Ice. Contact me and I'll be happy to show you how it's done

Decor Elements


Look what I made last night! Isn't it gorgeous? This is the new Season of Thanks Decor Elements (available October 1st). I saved the curl accent for another project.
You can download the brochure here: http://www.stampinup.com/us/enu/12177.asp Mine is chocolate. Item # 114883 and is $14.95 plus tax and shipping. I have it hanging on the wall in my living room. Feel free to stop and take a look on the way through.

I will be bringing it along to my library class (South Haven, IN. branch on 700 N.) on the 18th as well. Be sure to drop in and make some cards. Walk-ins welcome We will be making 3. A Fall or Halloween, a birthday, and a thank you. Cost: $5


I really love the Decor Elements and how I can add elegant decorations to my home without spending a lot of money. I will be able to use this year after year.


I also love how I can add a statement or a decoration. to my wall for a low cost too. When the statement no longer applies or I just want something else, off it comes. Just wipe the down the wall to remove settled dust, let dry and your wall is all ready for the next design. This especially nice if you're using the Nursery Neccessities pieces. Just peel, wipe down and be ready for the next 'age of youth'.

Playing with Glitter



I've been happily trying out new ways to use glitter. I've been making my own glitter glue by mixing Crystal Effects, reinkers, and Dazzling Diamonds. I can then apply the mixture with a paintbrush or a toothpick depending on how much I need for the project. Here are some cards I've made using glitter.
