Simon Says Treat Bag/Box

I am squeeeeezing this in at the last possible moment! Over on SSS Monday challenge, it is all about bags/boxes for treats…I made a special box for Grace for some Halloween goodies!  She is dressing up as Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz. I found this witch on Silhouette Store.

Quote of the day-“The only thing more fun than a shaker card is a card with a surprise shaker inside!” Laurie Willison was the instructor today….who lives in my state!!

Wild Card Day 4

wldcrd_participant

On day 4, its all about shakers! I struggle with them! Not gonna lie. I have tried several different ways to add the foam….watching some of the greats, via video. But I still struggle.Kristen taught about the smaller size windows in her first lesson of the day.

I try to make the idea of the lesson my own but her card was so cute, I pretty much copied it.

Her card had the sentiment cross the middle. I used my third window for my sentiment.

Thanks for coming by today…I hope you week ahead is a wonderful one.  🙂

Wild Card Day 3 project 2

I really enjoy doing Online Card Classes.

wldcrd_participant

I’ve taken about 20. I always learn something new. I am the kind of crafter that if I see something, I try it…so some things I have done before, but they always offer helpful tips. So so simple, I think….now why didn’t I consider that??? You will not be disappointed if you take 1 or 2.  Jennifer’s lesson is for unique pop up cards. This one took a bit of thought…almost had to scrap it once…

It is a bit on the small side, probably should have added at least 3 more flakes! I really liked Jennifer’s card so I will try this again with other shapes! So glad you came by….thanks!

Wild Card Class Day 2 project #3

Oh, boy! Oh, boy!! Oh, boy!!! This project is fun one! The movement for #3 is a spinner.

This was another one I thought about most of the day…what stamp set to use, how was I gonna execute it! This wonderful card just kinda fell together for me and I adore it!

card-class-15-sm

See the bottom? It’s a dial, I drew the castle, masked the hell out of it…then stenciled the brick with distress inks. Started with this little lady! Its me, I’m a Princess!

card-class-16-sm

Every Princess needs her Knight in shining armor! My knight wears denim and a ball cap!

card-class-17-sm

The knight needs to defend her against the mean ole dragon….right?! Look at this guy…maybe she needs a pet! That’s how I would roll! My dragon, my knight in denim, and I would eat s’mores….in my castle, all day!

card-class-18-sm

Life with my knight is pretty magical…and we lived happily ever after…or at least until we ran out of chocolate! Thanks for hanging out today!

Wild Card Class Day 2 project #2

Kristina did a wonderful job of explaining how to make a ‘magic slider card’. You’re intrigued….I know, I was too! Then I watched the video like 7 times, and ventured out to made my very own ‘magic slider’!!! (Sorry it is late, while I type this, and I’m a bit slap happy!)

card-class-19-sm

Because I know it is coming…full force…I am trying to be a bit pro active! (Love this WPlus9 set!

card-class-22-smMy paper warped a tiny…especially on the left side. But I still love how it turned out! I envy bloggers who smoothly transition to the end…I guess I’m just one of those who say bye, and wave for 15 minutes! I’m waving….have a great day!  Thanks for coming by…

Day 2 is all about movement! So, my first card is for my dog. What??? You don’t make cards for your pets? Well, neither do I! 🙂 However it is Sammy’s 1st birthday on Thursday, and we do celebrate their birthdays with pup-cakes and new toys!
