BOO! EEK! Happy Halloween!

Just a quick post today as we have last minute things to get ready Trick or Treaters tonight.  I just wanted to post some of the cards I made for Halloween that were from a class given by my dear friend Cathy!  We had a lot of fun!  Here they are...

Love me some Tim Holtz!  Happy Halloween everybody!  Now on to Christmas getting ready for the 10th of November and my Sampler class.

Be kind to everybody and make time for Creating With Paper!


Creating With Paper is loving Peaceful Boughs!

Greetings All!

I have just fallen in love with the Stamp Set Peaceful Boughs and it's coordinating die set.  Sooo pretty!  I wanted to share 3 cards I made from it.  The gray one we will be making at my Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering this coming Sunday!  It looks difficult, but it isn't and comes out very pretty. 

Here are the three cards I recently made with it (and the inside pictures too):

Here are the supplies I used to make them!

I encourage you all to get the bundle and save 10%!  Page 15 of the Holiday catalog.

I have had a chance to use the new Paper Trimmer that Stampin' Up! is coming out with.  It is similar to the old one, yet very different.  Several demonstrators have given their "opinions" on YouTube, so if you are curious, go check those out.  I love it!  My only concern is the opening and closing of the cutting blade/scorer "handle".  I am so afraid that I will warp it by pulling it up.  Probably fretting for nothing, but I had an old trimmer that had a warped arm and it ended up going in the trash because it wouldn't score and wouldn't cut good.   But that is the only concern I have.  It cuts extremely smooth - even on the whisper white card stock that was always the issue paper - scores wonderfully you don't even know it scores it is so smooth.  So all in all I think it is well worth it!  The blades are unique too!  I can see how these blades will last a lot longer than the old blades.  I will still take my old trimmer to classes and use it on jobs.  Keeping that fandangled new one all to myself!  Ha!

Well, that is all for today.  Be kind to one another and always make time for Creating With Paper!
