Halloween 2017

Happy Halloween!

I always love this time of year, and now that I have a black cat, there are so many cute things that make me think of her majesty (lol).

I used my final Krazy Kreations negative kit, this one was meant for a fun daisy card layout, but with a change of a few embellishments, it turned over to spooky so easy!




I added an old embossing folder and stamp set from Stampin Up! (Among the Branches) and an Impression Obsession die called "Boo".  So cute!

Great Ideas in October

October 18 is National Light Bulb Day, a great invention and a great image to show a great idea!  I cannot imagine crafting without a simple light bulb!

This is a solid, I used everything but the kitchen sink, card from Stephanie Bernard.

Hope you come up with some brilliant crafting ideas this month!

September 2017

Two holidays this month, Postal Workers Day on the 7th, and National Rum Punch Day on the 20th! I know, Labor Day was this month as well, but I wanted to celebrate a few of the more unique ones.

A personal thanks to all postal workers, you deliver my cards monthly to all my loved ones!  You truly make a difference in my life.


As far as Rum Punch Day, well it is the end of most of the vacation time lying in the warm sun, so ....

National Hot and Spicy Food Day

Happy August and National Hot & Spicy Food Day! It is a real day, I am not joking.  Of course, it seems like it is just plain hot outside, so the spice is just a bonus, so my card features spice instead of hot (unless you count the paper).

I love using flip it cards, but always end up watching Stephanie Bernard videos to remind myself how to fold them!  Thank goodness she has so many on her website Stamps of Life, or I would be in trouble.

National Watermelon Day

Happy Summer, hope you are enjoying the sunshine, and all the wonderful summer fruits and foods!

This card was another "negative kit" from Krazy Kreations.  It should have butterflies in the middle, but when I got the Stamps of Life Watermelon stamps and dies, I just had to use them.

Happy July 4th 2017

The year is flying by, and where I am, it is hot, hot, hot!  Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying all that the summer brings.

This month's card  makes me smile, but of course I used the Stamps of Life Laugh card kit, so I guess that fits.

Happy June 2017

The temperatures are rising in California, it must be June.  There are lots of birthday in the summer, so thought I would share a birthday card this month.

I used another of the Krazy Kreations Negative Card Kit - basically a kit that can be used with the negative of their peel off stickers.  However, I didn't have any peel offs to use, so I came up with a different idea for the kit.  So handy to have some of those kits on hand!
