A Little Halloween

Hello everyone!
  I'm really getting back into making mini's lately and came up with this one at a crop/team meeting a couple of weeks ago. You know how I like them...the smaller the better? This is called a One Sheet Wonder, meaning it was made with one sheet of 12x12 paper. Well, actually 3 sheets of 12x12 because I kept gluing it wrong and ended up making 3 books before all was said and done, hehe! I  got the idea from http://getcreativewithtraci.co.uk/ on Pinterest. I did finally make the book, and finished it up at home. This one is for Halloween. I used CTMH papers and some punches and dies from my stash. Thanks for looking! 

Supplies- CTMH: " Moonlight" WOTG( retired), 11/4 inch circle punch and Bronze and Black Shimmer Trim,  S.U.: "Tag Topper" Punch, One 12x12 sheet of Kraft Cardstock from my stash, Martha Stewart: "spider Web" border punch, "graveyard Mice" Border punch and the "Bat" Punch, Sizzix die: Large Bat, Glitter glue and paper from my stash.

Love Grows Mini

Hey Ya'll!

 I have a quick share today of a mini that I completed (finally) recently. The chipboard album was part of a kit that I purchased at Michael's, and was supposed to have a gardening theme. I decided not to use that as my theme, but used  all the papers and some of the chipboard embellishments. I added all the tags, flowers, ribbons, etc. I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather we are having as much as I am. I am so ready for fall!! Thanks for looking, and I'll see you soon!

Supplies- Recollections: "Vintage Romance Garden Kit" mini,CTMH: Journaling Spots
"Lucky"(retired), So Sophie: journal cards, MME: "Life Stories" journal cards, Paper Studio: Burlap ribbons and flowers, The picture frame was an old piece of packaging that held bakers twine.

Time Flies

Hey Ya'll!
I know, I know... Bad , Bad Blogger!! 
Sometimes life gets in the way, or you just need a break, or your Mojo heads south for the season. All of the above seem to be the case with me lately! I promise I will try to do better, and not stay away so long.
I have manage to do a few projects while cleaning and purging my craft space, and wanted to show you this simple card which was left over from a card class awhile ago. Shirley Ross was the original designer and the second card is the one I made using part of the card "kit" and some feathers I stamped and colored with the new ShinHan Touch Twin markers sold by Close To My Heart.
           Here is Shirley's design:
            This was done with an ink pad and a blending pen to give sort of a watercolor effect.

      This is the second card I did with the ShinHan markers where I closed the window  and mounted the fussy cut image to the outside of the card.

Thanks for looking in on me and I will see you soon,..I promise!!

 Supplies:  "M" Stamp " Hi" everyday life, Card design by Shirley Ross at /http://www.momnmescrap.blogspot.com , Using the Cricut cartridge "Art Philosophy( ? ), Stamp set "Happy Birds" for the feathers.
