October Projects

October is a fun time of the year with weather changing and colors exploding into brilliant oranges, greens and yellows.

One of my projects is this lovely card and gift bag combo I made for a special friend of mine for her birthday. Enjoy!

I really enjoy making matching gift bags with my birthday and gift cards. Stampin Up makes so easy with their gift bag punch board.  I also stamped Happy Birthday on white tissue paper in Always Artichoke and Pumpkin Spice Ink.

Here's a list of items I used to make them.
Card Stock:      Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White and Always Artichoke
Stamp Set          Avant-Garden
Framelits           Lot's of Labels, Stitched Shapes and Banner
Designer Series Paper was from Lullaby, a retired DSP
Essentials          Hardware clips also retired
Ribbon               white cross grain

I have several more cards to post, have fun and if I can help or answer any question contact me at jackielwatson2009@hotmail.com

Halloween Challenge

Hello everyone, I know it has been quite awhile since I have posted anything. I am not going into what's been going let's just say it has been a wild couple of years. Now to the important stuff.

I am starting things off with a Halloween Challenge that my sister Brenda and I have been talking about for some time. All you need to do is make a Halloween card,  anything goes, so get creative  and post it below. I love this time of the year and have a granddaughter and great granddaughter that have birthdays before Halloween. So it let's me very creative! Start date is Friday September 22nd at 7am and ends Monday September 25th at Midnight.  The winner will be announced Tuesday Morning. Then part two will begin on Friday September 29th and ends Monday October 2nd. The winner will be announced Tuesday October 3rd. The prizes are a surprise and will be announced along with the winner.  This way if you miss the first one you will have a chance to play in the second one.

To give you an example here is mine; I used some paper I found at Michaels,  new thinlits and scrapes laying around. Have Fun! I did, this one is Black, White and Silver. The silver spiders are spooky, I was going for Vintage Halloween Look. How did I do?

Birthdays, Shopping and More

Over the last few months I have been busy with making birthday cards, gifts bags and more!. Some items I have forgotten to take photos. I have been making gifts bags xl size for my Red Hat Ladies for their birthday days using Stampin Ups gift bag punch board, cards from Paper Pumpkin and mine own of course.

Enjoy! I made 4 of these and 3 Watermelon gift bags and cards. So far this is the only picture I could find. I will post more as I find them. These gift bags are great and so easy to make. I found it is great way to use old DSP.

If anyone wants to know how I made this lovely gift bag, just comment or email me at jackielwatson2009@hotmail.com. 

Welcome to Fall

Well here is my first card in 2 yrs, what can I say. Shameful. I have made cards for family and friends. Just didn't post them.

So in the next few days I am going to be posting some things I have been working on. I hope you enjoy them. Later in the week I am hosting a Halloween Card Challenge. I hope everyone joins in.

I just love the Coffee Cup stamp sets and thinlits from Stampin Up this year and have made quite a few cards and projects with them. Since I haven't been very creative I had help, I found this card on Pinterest although I forgot the blog. I just couldn't wait to make one myself. There a few changes since I didn't have all the supplies used. I like the way it came out, makes want a cup of coffee.

August Projects

This month I have been excited to focus on a couple of products from our new Stampin Up catalogue.
With a lot of birthdays this month I focused on lots of color and Butterflies. Using our Butterfly thinlit and Stampin Ups Envelope Maker.


All these Red and Purple cards are for the Birthdays of some very special Red Hat ladies in my chapter. I also used the envelope thinlits to make inserts for the envelope but those pictures didn't come out. I think they turned out quite well how about you?

Here are some firecrackers I made for guests at a Birthday Party we had for my Red Hat Chapter. Each one is filled with Chocolates, Jelly Beans and Sugar Free candies. What a wonderful way to use up retired DSP!! If you want to know how I made these lovely firecrackers go to videos up on tabs and click you will find it there. Have Fun, I know I did.
I hope you enjoyed this months projects and as always fill free to comment. I love reading them.

Birthday Card for a special little lady

I don't have a lot of children stamp sets so here is a card I made for my great granddaughter Tristyn

Just a simple Butterfly card using our new Butterfly thinlit.


New Baby Alert

Here is a card I made for my Granddaughter's new baby boy. I used a lot of retired stamps and paper to get the effect I wanted. I also made a liner using the retired whale DSP reversed it to show the clouds.

Here is who it is going to
 He is so cute!!
