Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

I recieved a Jolly Gift Set the other day... was told to have some fun creating with it.... so I did...

I made a few cards... an ornament to hide a money or trinket gift with... and a couple of tags so far... needless to say I am not done creating with this awesome set!

Boo To You!

With Halloween coming I thought that I would make a card using my new Archiever's Exclusive Spiderweb Die and a few Spider Punches.

Gotta love the ease of these Border dies!

Gotta Love These New Boss Kut Dies!

I was so excited when my new shippement of dies arrived. I've had these dies ordered since the day that they were announced which was way back in July! They finally came.

I had to sit down and make one of each them. They are so precious! I love them all.

And by the way all of these dies are available at!!!

Spur Of the Moment Card

Yesterday the DT Challenge was to create a card and send it out on the same day. Okay that was yesterday.... I managed to get it done but didn't get it posted here because Phillip had to be taken to the doctor to get his cast put on his leg. (He is doing fine with that!)

The card was supposed to let someone special know you cared about them.

It could be made in a hurry (thank Goodness because I only had a few minutes to make it) and it could be made from scraps (which mine was.)

So here is the card that I made:

Card Front:

Inside Card:

I won't say here who I sent the card to because I don't want to spoil the surprise if it was sent to someone reading my blog!

Brownies Anyone???

My house smells like brownies... why because I've been baking and then it hit me... use those dies for something other than SCRAPBOOKING!

So I did... and I am sharing a brownie with all of you!

Gotta Love Maxine

A friend of mine sent this to me and it really tickled me!!!!

So of course I have to share.

Little Altered Items!!!

The Challenge was to Alter a Pumpkin or Jack-O-Lantern. Once I started I could not stop. I was supposed to do one and I did two and have many more ideas! This could become a major obsession! The only thing we had to do was use our dies! Didn't matter what brand or size... just use your dies!

Here is what I came up with!

There Needs To Be More Scrapbooking Time!

I am two full years behind on my scrapbooks!!!! I need to make more time to get caught up with these.

I love scrapbooking!!! And here are a few of my newest creations.

Do You See What I See

Part of being a member of the DT for Scrap-Mart is being able to see things that maybe others don't. I am not good at this but I am getting better!

This flag was made from a Reideer Die.

And how about a sun made out of a Canoe Die and a Gumball Machine Die:

Or Flowers made out of Pumpkins:

These were all really fun - I am learning!

The craft projects that I've been working on!

Thanksgiving is coming. It will be here before I know it.

I made a Table Setting for the upcoming holiday.

I've been busy!!!!

The wheels have been turning non-stop. I have been scrapbooking but I've also taken a lot of family time this week end.

We went to Six Flags yesterday. I must be getting old because I was so tired at the end of the day. Joe and I didn't really ride too many rides. We watched the kids ride but even they are too old to be stuck with mom and dad. They were off riding and Joe and I looked in the stores and ate lots of stuff we probably should no have.

But anyway I have cards to share.

This is a Fall Card:

And a Christmas Card:

And then inside that Christmas Card is this:

And just one more, a Birthday Card:

These were so much fun to make!
