Halloween 2015

It is the time of year for a little spooky fun, I have a bag full of Halloween candy and a costume!  

I have been watching a lot of  "create a background with distress inks" videos, so decided to use all the pretty colors I own to try my hand at a holiday background.  

While I am glad to use things I already own, I just got back from the Scrapbook Expo, and currently have a pile of "new items" to add to the already large stash I own.  I am ignoring the new stack piled up on the floor for now, but will have to deal with it today. 

By the way, I am such a horrible fan girl, I met Stephanie Bernard from Stamps of Life at the expo.  Let us just say, I gushed, so embarrassing!

Craftsy Class - Catherine Pooler

Prior to packing up and moving, I purchased a Craftsy Class - a techniques class from Catherine Pooler.  Naturally, with the move, the purchase was forgotten and it just came to back to my memory this week.  I pulled out my box of unused stamps/dies and whatnot - it is actually several boxes now, as you can see below.  The angle of the photo is very flattering to the actual amount of stuff piled up, I will need to remember the angle for the next time I am in a photo!

I am enjoying Catherine's easy teaching style and learning to do so many new things or looking at old things from a different perspective.  I am only a little over half way through the class, but I cannot believe all the things I have done.  Thought I would share (but I cannot tell you how I made the cards, you will need to take the class and have Catherine show you)!  I also loaded another two cards to the Craftsy Project area, so much fun.
