More Christmas Cards

I wanted to try out my new Spellbinders Christmas Die so I made these cards using different kinds of paper.  The first one I did in foil paper and the second on with just regular card stock.  I could not do any changing of the foil paper like coloring but I did some changes or additions to the other one.

Here is the video I did on the cards so you can a better look and explanation of how I did them and what I used.  I hope you like them.  Thanks.

Birthday Cards for Son

October is mine and my son Daniel's birthdays.  We had a little party at our house in which my Dad and his wife came in from out of town to attend.  My son wanted my Dad to cook steaks cuz he can cook a mean steak now.  And it was sooooo gooooood too!  My other son and his girlfriend came in from out of town (college) to attend also.  It was good to have everyone together.

Here is a video showing the cards.  I do so many deer cards for him since he is a hunter that I wanted to do one a little different.  He also turkey hunts but would you believe I did not have not a one turkey die.  I have a digi but no stamps or dies.  Weird for me.

Thanks for watching!

A Lil Scrap of Heaven Halloween Tag Swap

I did a tag swap at A Lil Scrap of Heaven as well. Boy I'm on a roll!  Or maybe it's just a biscuit.  Not sure.  But I had a lot of fun doing all these swaps.  Here is the tag I did - front and back. I got the big owl a long time ago from someone and I had no idea how I was going to use it.  I finally found a way. LOL 

 Again, here is a video telling about my tag. 

I hope yall like it.  Give me some feedback on all these swaps I'm doing.  I thought I went a little overboard in getting involved with too many at the same time, but I really had fun doing them.


A Lil Scrap of Heaven Halloween Card Swap

These swaps with A Lil Scrap of Heaven are my first swaps I have done so I was hoping I did it right.  I think the cards I did came out cute. What do you think? The first two cards I have done before. I liked them so much, I wanted to do them again.  But really because I did not have any mojo going so I looked at my past cards to do them. LOL  The papers I got from Webster's Pages. The little ghost and mummy are just dollar stamps.

Here is the video so you can get closer look at them and more info about what I used.

I loved doing the swaps and I hope to do more in the future.  Check 'em out at A Lil Scrap of Heaven.  Leave a comment and let me know if you like them. 

Hugs, Karen Sue

Altered Composition Book for a Challenge

I did this altered composition book in response to Justine Stone's Camp Kangaroo Challenge.  The camp is for teenagers who have lost loved ones and they provide the books to the kids.  They can use them to write their feelings about their loss or just as something to take notes or whatever they want.  She wanted a female and a male decorated book but did not want any kind of wording on them. 

Here is a video showing what I came up with. It had been awhile since I had done one but I think they turned out okay.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks!

My Favorite Things Goodie Bag Swap (Scrapdaworld)

Here is another swap I participated in that was a lot of fun.  Tmika at Scrapdaworld does a ton of swaps and I have always wanted to do one but just got a little intimidated I guess.

We had to make and send 3 sets of 5 (items) and a 3x3 note card with envelope. The note card had to have at least 2 embellishments. The items could be themed or not - but all 5 things must be different. At first I did not want to do a themed item and was going to find stuff in my stash but I could not find enough of everything to do it.  So I went with the Christmas theme.  But then what to get....just a variety of stuff?  No, I wanted the person to be able to make something out of the stuff they got.  I walked around Michaels and came upon the ornament idea.  So I got things that were not expensive (around $1 or $1.50 or so) that you could use to make them.

Here is the video showing all the stuff.  I hope the ladies enjoy it.

New Handmade Flowers

I made some more flowers so I thought I would show them to you.  I love making flowers because you can do them so many different ways.  They are mostly made with fabrics.  Let me know what you think.

Response to Pocket Letter Challenge

Stacey Lambert (LambertCreations26(froggygreenstamper)) did a pocket letter challenge in memory of her sweet doggie Chloe.  It has to be doggie related so this is what I did. 

She was in bad health and had to be put down. I know it is hard.  I lost 2 doggies within a year of each other.  It's so hard because they become a part of your family and it is hard to let them go.

Here is a video showing it closer:

Prayers for Stacy for her to get through this hard time. I hope these Pocket Letters make you smile.
