Creepy Crawly Spiders

I made this card with the Cuttlebug "Spiderweb" embossing folder. The spider on the front is popped up and glittered. Here is the spider a little more close up....
I used the "beetle black" Doodlebug glitter on the spider after it was cut and embossed. The folder for this was called "Creepy", its a 3x3 combo folder (it embosses and cuts) and has a spider and 2 bats with it. I have both of these folders in stock along with the glitter if you need to make some creepy Halloween cards!

Changito Halloween

I was stamping a bit with the new stamps that just came in. I used the Nestabilities for the scallop circle and the inner circle. Below is a closer look at the nice embossed edge you can get with the Nesties when you use the Spellbinders embossing mat. Stop in if you would like me to demo how they work.

Fluffles & Changitos




The holiday Fluffles and Changito stamps are in!

Dont miss these darling Halloween and Christmas stamps, the Halloween ones wont be reordered after they are gone. (Stampendous is VERY slow on their shipping...)


More embossing folders


More Cuttlebug embossing folders are in! I have restocked the Fall and Halloween, along with new Christmas and flower folders too. I have a bunch on special order, if you are looking for something special just let me know and I can order it in for you.

Here is a card I made with one of the new ones in today. I needed a "guyish" card and with the right colors this one works great!

a BIG thank you!

I just wanted to send out a big "thank you" to everyone who came to our 1st ever Sidewalk Sale! We had a fabulous turn out (...before the rain came).
I also want to thank the girls that came to sell too. We were having fun for the first hour and a half, then things ended quite abruptly when the rain came out of no where.
Oh well, this is Erie... we know we have crazy weather!
We also raised some money to help out the Erie Humane Society.

Cherry Blossoms and Butterflies

In this class we will be making 4 stamped cards with a matching card purse to hold them. Each of the 4 cards is a different size and will have an envelope to match.



These cute cards are a theme set with cherry blossoms, owls, birds, and butterflies. The picture below shows the matching purse that they fit into. The card purse is slightly different in size than the one we did before due to the measurements on the Scor-pal.




Have you seen Dew Droplets and weren't sure what to do with them? Each card will have a few of these little embellishments attached. Here is a close up of the Dew Droplets and the pearl brads that are on the purse.

Almost all of the supplies in this class are from Basic Grey.

This set of cards would be nice to keep but would also make a beautiful gift!



The class sizes will be kept small because the cards are somewhat intricate and are made with rubber stamps. They are on display at the store if you would like to see them close up.

Wednesday, August 20th @ 1 pm (3 SPOTS OPEN) and 6 pm (FULL)

Thursday, August 21st @ 6pm (FULL)

simple wedding

I needed a wedding card for this weekend, so I used my new favorite Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I made 2 different versions of the same card... not sure which one I liked better.



The front says "Mr. & Mrs." and is popped up for a little dimension. The organdy ribbon adds an elegant feel for a wedding card.


I have a few of these Cuttlebug folders in stock, and will have a couple more in on Wednesday. I havent seen any of the newer Cuttlebug stuff at Michael's or AC Moore yet. I also have some Halloween embossing folders coming soon too!
