October Calendar Page 1

Well, we closed on our house last week, finally got the keys a few days later, and started moving in! We won't be done moving stuff in for another week or two, and we're going to get some painting and installing done before we actually move in. But that is definitely cutting into my creative time...! And so today's is another quick post.

I did get a calendar page done tho, and that's worth sharing! haha. This is the Halloween pics of all nine of my parents grandchildren!
Yes, I used MDS, and yes, it is retired. But maybe you have it or maybe you have some of these papers laying around! So here's a fun way to use it! haha! 

MDS Downloads: Eat Drink & Be Scary, Days to Remember, Storytime, Mis-Stitched, Back to School, Playful Polka Dots

Cards In The Mail!

I have gotten so many cute cards in the mail lately and haven't shared them in so long, that I am splitting them up! Today I have the fall/Halloween/Thanksgiving cards, and I've saved Christmas for a later day....but likely other cards will arrive by then, haha!

Creators names are added to each photo. Enjoy! I know I do!

Bridal shower!

One of the many things happening this fall in my world, is my brother's wedding! My mom and I hosted a bridal shower for his fiancĂ©e, with a recipe theme. 

To start, I made these cute invitations with my (sadly) long-retired MDS, and some cute kitchen and cooking themed stamps and DP. 
Then, I stamped index cards using another long-retired stamp set. Each invitation went out with an index card so that people could bring a recipe with them, or even mail back just a recipe if they were unable to attend. And that's exactly what some people did!
For the shower itself, I stamped more cards, so that people could leave "a recipe for a great date night" and/or a "recipe for a happy life together", but I didn't get any pictures of that...

I used a recent Paper Pumpkin kit to make a cute banner. It says "BRIDAL SHOWER"... and there are some photo posters....
And here's a close-up....
So that my kids could help (and stay busy?) they made this sign for the door. And the balloons are my husband's interpretation of my daughter's idea!
My son drew the bubble letters and my daughter colored them.
And the cute couple enjoying the shower, for good measure...!
So, you see, I haven't been completely non-creative.....just non-blogging.

Paper Pumpkin September

Hello again! While on my little break, I still created a few things. Today's post is another fast one, but since I snapped a picture before delivering these, I may as well share it!

September's paper Pumpkin had a cute little way to share a treat. As is always the case for me, treat packaging goes to some ladies in the neighborhood, or from church. Turns out, these tiny tubes hold one m'n'm per layer, and that was perfect. I used the autumn colored m'n'm's out of two regular packages, for reference. 

These would also make cute thank you gifts since we've now moved into November. And, the refill kit is still available for subscribers! Check it out HERE

Blog Hop: Stepped Over!

Happy November to you!! The holiday season has arrived!
Today I'm playing along with the Blog Hop and I'm totally feeling a day late and a dollar short-
because I'm sharing a Halloween creation... inspire you next year! Ha!
For a while we've been stepping our creations up a notch, and this time I'm stepping it "over". That means I'm making the same card twice, but once with a holiday spin.

First up, I have this pretty fall card, which I barely got in the mail on time!
(seriously...a day late on everything right now...!)
And for both cards I used last week's Freshly Made Sketch.
Stamps: Jar of Love
Ink: Soft Suede, Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, Cajun Craze, Rich Razzleberry
Paper: Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, Petals & Paisleys DP
Accessories: Petals & Paisleys Ribbon, Dimensionals

And then for my "stepped over" version, I have this fun Halloween card! I also added a bit to the background by heat embossing the creepy eyes, with clear embossing to make it subtle, and therefore just a little more spooky!
Stamps: Jar of Haunts
Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Halloween Night DP
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Dimensionals

That's all from me today! Thanks for stopping by!
Now hop on thru and see what every one else has created to inspire you!
