Throwback Thursday: Cookie-Cutter Halloween Part 3

Today's Throwback Thursday has been in my head, pretty much since I decided to feature this particular set for three weeks in a row.  I finally had the time to sit down and get it out of my head and into the real world!  Yay!  I think it turned out soooo cute!  Take a look!


Eee!  It just screams Halloween Cuteness to me!!  And marrying it with a few newer sets just made it perfect.

I "white-washed" my Brick Wall Embossed background with a Sponge Dauber and the Craft Stampin' Ink in Whisper White.  It really looks awesome and very "tomb-ish", if I do say so myself.  I made an attempt to give my little Vampire Buddy a muted watercolored look, which looks better in person than in the photo, but, as they say---practice makes perfect.  I just need to keep at my watercoloring skills!

As you know, I'm not a huge fan of fussy-cutting, but the little bats from the Cookie-Cutter Halloween Stamp Set screeched "cut me out!" so I did and then randomly placed them on the card with some Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.  I also fussy-cut my potion bottles (from the Spooky Cat Photopolymer Stamp Set) and used a Mini Stampin' Dimensional on them, too, for the table that is die cut from the Christmas Staircase Thinlits Dies.  I see so much use of that table for many seasons to come!!!

I want to make so many more of these brick backgrounds!  And potion bottles on tables!  Haha!  Share with me what you create and if you want to copy this design, here's what I used:

Tutorial Tuesday: Strawberry Pie

I am a little bit sad that Sale-A-Bration 2018 is coming to a close this month.  Stampin' Up! has had some amazing products to give away this year and I have seen some really creative uses for extending their life! Erica Cerwin of Pink Buckaroo Designs is no exception!  I saw her use the  Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  and make a pie card!  It was so stinking cute, that I just had to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) it and share my interpretation with my Papercrafting Passionista Friends!  PS: The Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!!!  So you can get this adorable embossing folder with a $100 purchase (it's a part of the Blossoming Basket Bundle, which is a $100 Reward) and  the embossing folder is carrying over to the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog!  So you'll be a step ahead of the new products!  Wow! Here's what I used to make this sweet card: Supply List: Fruit Basket Bun

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee

Lent 2020: Days Nine-Thirteen

Hahah.  I am realllllllly good at sticking to my Daily Gratitude Posts.  {Insert Eye Roll Here}.  Well, I guess I can blame life, sicknesses, etc., but the reality is---I haven't been sticking to my Lenten Commitment of being Intentional.  But, let's forget the past and just start moving forward, right? Day Nine: Thursday was a rough day.  HJ was still sick-ish.  I started having the WORST sinus pressure.  I had a horrible headache.  I was out of ibuprofen for myself and I really didn't feel like going anywhere, despite the fact that I was beginning to get a little stir-crazy.  But, then I remembered how incredible Target Pick-Up is!  Just click, add to cart, checkout, boom.  Less than two hours later, I get a notification that my order is ready and I drive myself (and my sick kid) to a parking spot, GPS notifies Target of my arrival, and check---I have a bottle of ibuprofen and Advil Sinus meds in my hands and I'm back on my way home to my couch and snuggles withou
