Color Challenge #194

For this week’s color challenge, I was thrown off by the Melon Mambo for making a Halloween card, but it totally works here, don’t you think?  I saw a similar card on Pinterest made by Diana Eichfeld ~ thanks Diana for the inspiration!

Halloween Home

As a demonstrator we receive a bi-monthly magazine called Stampin’ Success.  Inside the September-October edition on page 27, I saw this sample of a quick make & take and CASEd it.  I am so tried of this heat that we are having here in Southern California that I needed to make a fall themed card.  I am hoping for cooler and more seasonally-like weather for autumn. Wishful thinking, maybe!

Witching You a Happy Halloween!

I CASED the card found on page 47 of the Holiday Catalog.  It was a lot of cutting out the stamped images but such a cute card and totally worth the extra effort!

Frightfully Boo-tiful!

I am always so impressed with Stampin” Up! Simply Created Kits.  Not are they easy to put together but the kit comes with full instruction sheets (in color too)!  They also post a quick YouTube video on how to put this wreath and spider together.  The most time consuming thing was beading the spider together.  I am not complaining, I LOVE how it turned out!

For You: Tag a Bag

A few weeks ago I attended a fun party for a good friend that is celebrating her 20th wedding.  While the invitation said no gifts, too bad!  I got her a mickey locket as she is a die-hard Disney fan.  I made this little gift bag using the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bag and Accessory Kits.  It didn’t take much time to add a few extra pieces to jazz up the accessories that are provided in the kit.

Happy 15th Wedding Anniversary

Today is my 15th wedding anniversary.  I love this new stamp set called Seasonally Scattered.  Our wedding colors were black and white, very classic and I wanted my card to reflect that too!

We got married in Newport Beach on a private yacht!  Still to this day, our friends talk about what a great it was. When we were about to dock, we had a gondola pick us up and sail around the marina for another hour while the guests returned back to the dock and left.
