Halloween Party Invitations!

These were again inspired by another CTMH consultant! The background paper is not CTMH, but paper I had lying around. We don't have a Halloween theme paper pack anymore...and it is VERY much missed! One of my many requests that I have in at the moment :O)

These are for a Halloween party that my kids are going to have on Halloween day. Love that it's a Saturday this year! Going to be a fun time...I most enjoy making the food! We are going to have candy corn pizza, blood red oozy punch, and sawed off fingers to eat. For dessert is cup 'o worms...

For these cards I used the following stamp sets from CTMH:

Merry Monsters B1333
Beware D1381
October Word Puzzle D1311

Hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween!!!

Advent Calendar class in now! ONLY 4 SPOTS LEFT!!

It's been awhile since I've offered a project! And this one is one of my fast favorites! This is a reusable advent calendar. The 2nd photo shows you drawer #2 is open...there is enough room in there for a few treats for my kids...I'd say that you could put in 4 hershy kisses with no problem for an idea...or you could add little treasures for them!

Space is limited in this class b/c I only have 8 of the calendars and they came from the states on sale...won't get them again at the good price! So please contact me to book a spot today!

Cost is $30. You need to bring your adhesive, 12" trimmer and scissors.

Class will be held on November 20th, that is a Friday at 7:30. Book your spot today!

***I must give credit to Laurel Seabrook, a fellow CTMH consultant for this fabulous idea! And Tanya Johnson for helping find a great place to buy these!

October Layout

The theme this month is obviously Fall! I love taking fall photos of the kids and dog and can't wait to get out there soon! For this layout I used "Swing Rhythm" layout from Imagine (CTMH). And for the supplies, here it goes! I have to apoligize as the one photo mat on the second page slipped down on me...crooked isn't how it's supposed to be! :oL
Cost for this class is $20.

cocoa cardstock X5642
sunflower cardstock 1242
autumn terracotta cardstock 1270
october word puzzle D1311
classic caps D1100
journaling jots B1269
autumn splendor D1181
november word puzzle D1312
autum terracota ink pad Z2101
sunflower ink pad Z2150
cocoa ink pad Z2114
timber brown staz on
delta ceramcoat white paint
"F" monogram chipboard Z1060
twill ribbon Z1099
pewter mini medley Z1243

Yes I did stamp on the pewter tag "fall" and it worked great using the timber brown staz on, just have to be careful b/c it's a big slippery!

I think that is it! It was a bit time consuming with the inking...stamping..and cutting...but in the end once I get some lovely fall photos on there it'll be awesome! I hope my ladies like it!!
