"Spidey & Batgirl" aka Caden & Deianiera
Features: S4-124 Classic scalloped circles--Lg. (Spellbinder's die), Just Rite stamps "A Merry Little Christmas," pearls & ribbon.
Features: S4-219 Nested Poinsettias & S5-019 Labels 8 (Spellbinder's dies), stickles, christmas print paper & stamp.
I love these stamps!!! The stamp set is from CTMH, "Ms. Holiday Cheer," as is the liquid glass and flock. Chunk glitter is from SU.
I used copic markers to color the images; and stickles, beads, ribbon and brads to dress it up...and give it some bling. :)

6x6 mini Thaksgiving page
This mini album page features the Spellbinder's die: S4-168 Large Labels. It is the frame around the picture. For this page we used 2 different printed papers, ribbon and buttons.
The picture is of my daughter, Deianiera when she was about 1 year old.
6x6 mini Christmas page
Since I did a picture of my daughter, this page is of my son, Caden.
This page has rhinestones, stickles glitter, ribbon, and of course Spellbinders dies. This time we used S4-085 Snowflake Wonder and S3-150 Ribbon Tag trio. (This is a set of 3 tags, previously I used one on the treat box).
These were the projects we made at out last Stampin' Up club meeting. I love the dove stamp set (I had to buy it). The ornament is made using a paper punch. You just use ribbon, glue and beads, and put it all together. I really enjoyed this project! Thanks Karen for sharing your wonderful ideas.

This card was quick and simple! I glued thanksgiving paper to my card, added eyelets to the corners, cut out a tag (and wrote Give Thanks), tied it to the pumpkin using hemp, and used my Spellbinders die: S4-227 Nested Pumpkins (this is the largest one). I then added "lines" to my pumpkin using brown chalk and a q-tip. :)
"Halloween card & 6x6 mini album page"
This card features Spellbinder's die: S4-235 Fancy Tags. For the ghost I used white felt (cut out a ghostly shape), added stickles to the outer edge (halloween pack had purple, orange and black), and wiggly eyes. For the tag I used a halloween stamp and rhinestones.
This is a picture of my husband, Greg. He was the "Mad Scientist" for Halloween, showing all the kids how to make slime.
For the mini album page, I used a versamark pad to stamp my saying and bats, onto the purple paper. I added different papers, black ric-rac and rhinestones, and black photo corners to hold the picture into place. The tag is made using Spellbinders die: Nest-007 Nested Long Classic Rectangles. I couldn't find a number for this one because I have the Nested 4 pack. You can buy it seperately though.
For those of you that like the Nested Pumpkins (S4-227) and the Nested Maple Leaves (S4-228) that I've used, they are only available until the 30th of November. They are part of Spellbinder's Seasonal Collection.
I designed this card for the Crafty Secrets challenge featured on Split Coast Stampers awhile ago....but then my computer died! :( So, I never got to enter it. But here it is for you to see.
I just used some scrap paper and lace (to make the flag), and I used my crop-o-dile to set eyelets, then added some hemp to that. For the maple leaf I used Spellbinders: S4-228 Nested Maple Leaves and I added some Stickles to that. The moose tag is C.S. that I covered in liquid glass, and adhered with pop up dots.
The treat box was made using an "open handle box template' and Spellbinder's die: S3-150 Ribbon Tag Trio and S4-102 Fall Harvest. We chalked around all the pieces and used ribbon glue to adhere the ribbon to the box.
For the gift tag we used Spellbinders die: S4-227 Nested Pumpkins. Chalk was again used around the edges (I lvoe chalk). Use a paper punch, thread some embroidery floss through the hole, and you have a gift tag. :)

The sunflower card features #S4-202 Deckled rectangles ~ Lg & S5-004 Sunflower Garden (I just used the sunflower and leaf).
For this card, the sunflower was made using mulberry paper---it is awesome to chalk on! Also used were: clear jewlery bags, sunflower seeds & magic mesh.
The apple tree card features #S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles ~ Lg & #S4-114 Classic Standard Circle ~ Lg.
This card features "sewing scraps"---bias tape, lace & buttons, stuff everyone has, but maybe has not thought of using on a card. For the "fall leaves" effect I used Marvy Markers to color the leaves different shades. (You can also just use green to help balance all the red).

This card was made using my Stampin' Up stamp set: Asian Artistry (and I colored it with copic markers for a watercolor effect). I also used my Versamark pad for the background (dragonflies and saying), and of course my Spellbinders dies: S4-202 Deckled Rect. ~ Lg. & S4-168 Large Labels.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

So I recently went back to Angelo's (our local paint your own pottery studio), and they had the Margarita glasses in stock. Of course, I HAD to paint one!!! :)
My son, Caden thinks it's funny that I'm a drink and a pizza----"You could be a whole meal!" Yes son, I could!
I also love dragonflys, so I decided to try and draw one on a cup (there's 3 on here actually). This burgundy paint actually has black specks in it, they're a little hard to see in the pic., but they look really neat!
Next time, I want to learn to melt glass! :)

The card was made using: Spellbinders Renaissance Hearts Pendant die, Colorsnaps "smooch" in Pumpkin, Robin's Nest dew drop in Black, Glimmer Mist in Raven, Stampin' Up (saying) and various paper, ribbon & a button I had laying around.
I love the way this photo frame turned out!!! My husband and I attended the Renaissance Faire last year, but I've yet to do anything with the pictures, until now. This is a $1 wooden frame from Michaels that I painted a "wine red" color, then covered in D.C.W.V. "Once Upon a Time" paper. The torn edge paper is sprayed with "haunted shadow" glimmer mist, and the fairies wings are highlighted with clearsnaps "smooch" in gold. I also added some ribbon, brads and charms that I've been "saving for the perfect thing!" The sign at the bottom was made using Spellbinders Label 8 die and a gold marker.

They chose my "Heritage" mini album. (To see the whole album, keep scrolling down on my blog, Spellbinders only posted the front & back page).
August 20 I'll know if I won the grand prize, which is $500 worth of dies, a die case & products from other companies, or 2-5 place which is $100 worth of dies. It's through random.org., so they don't actually pick the winner----I've just got to think positive that it'll be me! :)
Whatever happens. . . they chose me, my work is posted on their blog, and I'm guranteed $100 worth of dies---not to bad if you ask me!!!

I have signed up to teach classes on (every other) Friday night from 5:30 - 8:00, at H.L., starting September 11. I am soooo excited!!!
So, now I just have to make a sign, advertising my class, and some sample cards or layouts, for H.L. to display for me. Hopefully I'll get some interest----H.L. is the only store here in G.J. that sells Spellbinder's dies, but they don't sell the Wizard.
I hope this goes well----I've never taught a class before! :(
As soon as I get my samples done, I will post them on my blog.

"Haute Couture cards"
Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE Graphic 45 paper??? If I haven't. . . .well, let's just say it's one of my all time favorites. I love vintage stuff, and that is what they specialize in: 1920's & 1930's.
These are some of my favorite cards that I've made.
Well, we just had our second Stampin' Up Club party, on August 1. I was the hostess for this party, so you know what that means.....FREE STUFF!!!
The coffee cup card was my "exchange card," and the stamp set is actually from Stampin' Up (like 10 years ago). :)
As you can see, we made 3 cards this time!!! Thank you Karen for coming all this way (she lives in Castle Rock, which is on the eastern slope of CO.---we are on the western slope), and showing us how to make these wonderful cards. :)

My niece is graduating from college, so we're "road tripping," it to AZ for that! Have you ever seen "National Lampoon's Vacation?" I imagine our trip being like the Griswalds' :)
My poor husband, Greg, has to take a 2 week Math Class for school (he's a teacher), so he's staying here in CO., and my 2 kids and I are going with my parents, to my sister, Terre's house in AZ. I'm so excited!!! :) It's been 6 years since we've been to AZ. I can't say I'm gonna love the heat, but I'm glad I get to see my family. We'll also get to see my brother's, Israel & Bob, and my Tias while we are there!!!! :)
I'm also visitng my former District Manager (from AVON), Cheri, so that'll be fun too! Cheri and her husband relocated to AZ awhile ago, so it'll be nice seeing them again. My son used to go with me to all the AVON meetings, since I stared selling when he was 1; he was so used to seeing Cheri, he started calling her 'Grandma Cheri.' :) He asks about her every now and then, why we don't see her anymore, so it'll be nice seeing her again, for him too!
After AZ, I have to catch up on my AVON deliveries and I also have a meeting to attend, so it might be August before you here from me again. :( But I will return......

When I found this stamp set in "Oriental Trader," I HAD to buy it. Call me crazy----I love gnomes. And my sister, Terre, gives me such a hard time about it. She says, "only little old ladies like gnomes." Well, I'm not old, but I do like gnomes, I have them all over in my flowerbeds. :)
So Sis, this card's for you! :)
