Scrapbook Stamp Society- Halloween Treat Bag

Hello Crafting Friends,

Today I would like to share a Halloween treat bag that I made for my post at Scrapbook Stamp Society! Seeing as Halloween is right around the corner, I thought this would be a fun little project to make. I had never made a treat bag before.

I used the delightful image Scan0008. Love this image! So perfect and fun for Halloween! I also used Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight, and Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch on this treat bag. For the decorating of the bag, I used Impression Obsession DIE115-J, Spider and Web. Tonic Studio Essentials, Happy Halloween die. I also used Memory Box Batty Border to add a few bats on the tree, which is probably not so noticeable, but they are there. ;)

Anyway, that's it for today!
I hope you are having a fabulous crafty week!
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Srapbook Stamp Society- Christmas Box

It is my turn to share something I made over at Scrapbook Stamp Society. I made a little Christmas gift box.

I thought I would start early and make a little something to put money in to give to my daughter for Christmas. Kind of help spruce up the fact that I am giving her money. I will probably stick another little gift in it as well. You can find the image here: Button Betty! I used a Christmas Sizzixs, Framelits W/Stamps for the sentiment on the tag. I got it on clearance. :) I made the box using Memory Box, We R Gift Box Punch. I got it last Christmas. I knew it would come in handy! :)

Hope you have a great day!

Colr It Create It Show It Off- Recipe Cards

At Color It Create It Show It Off, the challenge for September is Recipe Cards.


We like to go on trips using our RV so I decided to make a little recipe card booklet to keep some of my husbands favorite recipes in. I actually bought a few more images so I can keep adding to the pages, lol. I just love My Bestes images! :)
I used Spellbinders, Fleur De Lis Squares on the cover. The pickle jar girl, I used Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots embossing folder. I used Cottage Cutz, Strawberry for the jam girl.
 Here are the images I used:
IMG664- Apple Pie Girl

My Besties International Challenge- Friendship

I really had a lot of fun with this challenge! You don't have to follow the theme, it's just there if you want too!
The image I used here is called Fifi and Bubbles. One of my Besties teamies did a fabulous job using this image. It really is a cute image!
I used Spellbinders, Floral Ovals for the bathroom mirror. The only other thing I used besides my Copics, was JustRite Clear, Market Place Alphabet stamps for the towel engraving the initials. The funny thing is... these initials mark mine and my husbands first names, but also are my Bestie and her husbands initials in England. Small world, lol.
Come on over to My Besties International Challenge and come join in on the fun!

This image is, IMG661. I bought her especially for this challenge. She just spoke to me, if you know what I mean. Some images inspire you more then others. Images you just can't wait to get your hands on and start coloring, lol. That's how I felt when I saw her! I just couldn't wait to color her.

It is my turn to share something at Scrapbook Stamp Society. Seeing as it is more of a tips and tricks blog, I made a purse bag. The link for how to make it is HERE.

Anyway, I hope you go and check out Scrapbook Stamp Society blog. It really does have some pretty neat things shown all the time.

This image is called IMG845. I just love the fact that with the jacket and hat, you can go fall with her. I had wanted to do the whole browns and really make her into a fall card, but then I had to much fun adding color to it and make it more fun. She is a cutie though.

Today start a new challenge for the month at My Besties International Challenge. It is always "Anything Goes" using any image from any artist. Option theme is sparkle, glam, and glitter.
There are great prizes to be had for both DT, and (Non) DT winners.
This is one of Sherri Baldy's "Fluffy" Besties, IMG206. Love her!!!! I made this card for my sister for her birthday. She is a shopaholic in a half, lol. The funny thing is, my sister and her youngest daughter only have two days apart between their birthdays, so I usually only send one card for the both of them. Her youngest daughter said, "boy is this sentiment correct. If they don't shop JC Penny's then they don't know where to shop", LOL. Things that kids say sometimes are too funny!

Anyway, I hope you come participate!

Color It Create It Show It Off

Hey there, it's that time again to be sharing a card that I made for Color It Create It show It Off. It is always Anything Goes, but soon there will be an "option theme" to the challenge too.
This little cutie is IMG831. I just love this image! I had a hard time deciding what I wanted to do with her. I knew I wanted a fold card, but I wasn't quite sure what one until I saw this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkwyDPJgPOY
I didn't put it on the computer like she did, but it was really easy to follow along anway.
The paper is from My Minds Eye- Lost & Found called, Bush "Sweet" Bouquet Paper. The back of this pink checkered paper has little tiny flowers, hence the name. I have a stamp set I use quite often. It is Fiskars, Hello Fabulous. The image shape is from Spellbinders, Labels Ten. I colored her with my Copics then inked around the image with Tim Holtz, Vintage Photo. I used my white gel pen to put faux stitches around the border frame of the image and that basically is it!

I hope you come and play along with us for June!
Hugs,and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Peek A Boo

Hi there,

It's my turn to share something I made over at Scrapbook Stamp Society. I decided to use this darling girl, Img963.
I just think she is absolutely adorable.


 For this card, I just made a regular card like I normally would. It's a 5x5 card base. Then I just added a second piece of paper, scored it, then used double sided tape to join the two pieces together. I had seen cards like this made, but never have found a pattern for it, so I basically had to figure it out. It really was a fun card to make. The front of the card base, I stamped a sentiment, but when you open up the card, I then have all the room in the world to be able to write what ever I want to say to the person I am giving it too. I think that's kind of clever also.
Anyway, go and check out Scrapbook Stamp Society. It gives good tips from time to time which is very useful.
Hugs, and happy crafting!
Sandy.

Scrapbook Stamp Society- Shaker Card

Hello my crafting friends,

Today for Scrapbook Stamp Society, I decided to share a shaker card that I made using Fancy Pants Bloomin Besties img179.
I have never made a shaker card before so this is my first time making one. A good friend of mine sent me a shaker card for Christmas. The plastic part looked like it had been sewn so I asked her what she did, or used to make it. She used a fuse tool. I had never heard of it before so I went to YouTube. Here is a link if you are like me and have no clue on what it is. The link you will find here.
So, I went and bought the fuse tool and decided to give it a try. I have to say, it is really easy to use and holds what ever you put inside extremely well. :)
Thank you Larelyn for the tip on the fuse tool!
Hugs, and happy crafting.
Sandy.

My Besties International Challenge- Reminder

This is a reminder that My Besties International Challenge for March is still going on. It ends March 27th so there is still time to come and participate. :)
This adorable image is Scan0031. She is a  Chibi Kawaii Besties. I used Fiskars Sunburst Border punch, and Fiskars Hello Fabulous clear stamp set. The paper is from The Paper Studio called, Tiny Polka- Lime Tonal, the other is scraps.  I used Spellbinders Lacey Circles, and Standard Circles Large. I colored the image with Copics. That's about it.
I hope you do decide to come participate. There are great prizes to be had.
Hugs,and happy crafting!

I would like to enter this at Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge.
