Grandma's Rocking Chair - September 28, 2014 - Halloween Decorations

Grandma's Rocking Chair Question -  I like to stamp and do paper crafting what can I do for Halloween.

I love Halloween and Trick and Treating.  I decorate  our house really well and enjoy everything about it except taking down the cob webs  I hate that job.

We usually have about 300 kids come for trick or treat in our neighborhood.  So we don't buy candy it is to expensive I usually make bookmarks and the kids love them well at least most of them.  I do have kids that say no candy I tell them not at this house.

This year I have about 150 done so far.  I also sell them to some friends who are teachers so I will be making about 600 this year.  I am using Tee-Hee-Hee for the stamp set.
I love the saying and the items that go with them.  Such as the Witch's Hat and "if the hat fits"

Here is one of my book marks.
If we didn't have so many kids I would make some of the Curvy Keepsake Boxes to give out.  Right now I am selling them at my craft fairs. These Halloween Character ones  will sell for a little more than my plain ones.





Here are some of my plain ones using just Designer Series Paper.



Remember if you order the Curvy Keepsake box Framelit from me I will send you two kits  to make these boxes yourself.  Click Here to order your Curvy Keepsake Box Framelit.
So there are some of the things I would be giving out for Halloween.  What about Decorations?
Well the one I really love is the Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit


If you would like to see more Fall/Halloween Decorations Check back here on my Blog on Tuesday September 30 for the Fall in Love with Fall Decor Blog Hop to see 10 great blogs all on fall Decor.

These are just some things you can do for Halloween with Ink, Paper and Stamps.

Hope you have enjoyed this little discussion.

Happy Stamping

There's A Card Thursday - September 25, 32014 - September 2014 Paper Pumpkin


Well I finally got to open My Paper Pumpkin this month and to say I loved it was an understatement.  Of course it is not a card, sorry since I was gone all last week I didn't get to see any sneak peeks so I was hoping it was a card kit, but I think it is better.  You don't have to use it just for Halloween - sign up for Paper Pumpkin or purchase pre-paid Paper Pumpkins from me and I will let you into a secret Pinterest Board for alternatives for Paper Pumpkins.  If you order from Paper Pumpkin from me I will also send you a special gift for you to keep your paper pumpkin stamps in.

Here is the September Paper Pumpkin Project.

So fun and easy to do.  Here is the video on how to do it.


Don't you just want these.  If you are a paper Pumpkin Subscriber you can order more of these or other older kits.  To order your Paper Pumpkin Subscription Click Here.  To order pre-paid subscriptions Click Here.

Remember if you order from me either the Subscription or any of the Pre-Paid Subscriptions I will give you access to a secret Pinterest board and a free gift.


What is Paper Pumpkin
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy! All for $19.95 which includes shipping.

The best thing though if you sign up by October 10th you will receive four handmade cards from me.  The cards will be made by using stamp sets and supplies from my Paper Pumpkin kits. If you thought you would like to try Paper Pumpkin now is the time.  I have a special Secret Pinterest Board just for my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers, where I will show what else you can do with Paper Pumpkin and it's stamps.  No One else will see these other than my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers.

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - September 23, 2014 - Blendabilities 101 Zentangaling



Have you heard about Zentangle.  Creative doodling?  Where you doodle stamped images adding lines circles or just doodles.

Most Zentangling uses fine tipped black markers.  I wanted to see if we could use our Blendabilities to add some color to it.  Really love the color but I think even the fine end are still a little thick but watch the video and you can make your own opinion
Black and White Zentangle Wild Horse drawing http://www.etsy.com/listing/121555275/black-and-white-zentangle-wild-horse?ref=sr_gallery_30&ga_search_query=zentangle+art&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_page=17&ga_search_type=all




Hope you liked the video.  If you have please leave a comment.
