Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone! It's been a busy week with not much time for cardmaking and blogging, but I didn't want you all to think that I've forgotten you. Have you seen this CUTE cartoon? I received it in an email and thought I would pass it on to all of you with a SMILE! I hope you're having a FUN holiday today! Smiles, Pam :)

p.s. a few of us dressed up and brought treats for work today. Can you guess which one is me?

Oh Happy Sunday! How's everything in your corner of the world today?

It is a lovely autumn day here and I've been cleaning up my stamping room in anticipation of a wave of creative genious. :) In the meantime, I'm posting a card that is very similar to one that we made at Stampin Up club a couple weeks ago. I really like this design and wanted to make another using my new "Priceless" set and "So Swirly" jumbo wheel. These new SU colors are the best...blue bayou, wild wasabi and purely pomegranate.

This card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (to top of circle). I used my DIL's new Coluzzle Cutting System to cut the circle in the cardstock. Also used the scalloped punch and layered 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" circles. I'm not sure that you can tell by the photo, but I've stamped and then clear embossed the images to give them some depth and gloss.

Yesterday, I signed up for an "E-swap" at the Stamp Shack to make a Christmas themed card. Our only requirement is to use something RED on the card. That shouldn't be too difficult, huh? I've got some new holiday stamps that wanna be inked, so stay tuned!

Have a joyful and peaceful day! Smiles, Pam :)

Happy Boo to YOU!

Another Terrific Mail Day!

Tonight I had an appointment after work and got home late, but I was greeted by DH (aka Mr Wonderful) with dinner in the crockpot and FUN mail on the kitchen counter! :) Gotta love it!

This spooktacular card was made by my friend Nancy (directmailscrapper) in Maryland. She commented inside that MY card was her inspiration for this, but I would have never thought to do this! She's SO creative with how she added the additional circle on top to form a tab closure. The second photo shows the card open so you can see this better. It's just so super cute and I love it! Thank you Nancy and Happy BOO to YOU too! :)

And that's not all! I also received a large envelope full of wonderful stamped images from Jan (Far North) in Alaska. Wooo Hooo! As soon as I get one of them colored and create a card, you'll all be the first to see it. A BIG thanks to Jan for sending these my way! :)

Is tomorrow really FRIDAY already?! YAY! I hope you're all having a great week so far and finding time to be creative. Smiles 2 U! ~ Pam :)

Beeee....Happy!!! { Mojo Monday on Wednesday! }

Tonight I made a card using the "Mojo Monday Week #8 Sketch" created by Julee T and posted on her spectacular blog, "Poetic Artistry". She commented that it was a simple layout and it is, but I think it's great and will use it often! You'll notice that I turned mine sideways in order to accomodate the image size. Thanks Julee for the inspiration! :)

I purchased this adorable "Bee Trio" by Stampendous this summer and haven't used them nearly enough. They are so FUN because you can color them however you like to coordinate with whatever background paper you want to use. The "beeee happy" sentiment stamp is also by Stampendous ~ titled "Bee Message".

With the beautiful colors of Autumn all around us, I chose to incorporate them into this card. I've used Stampin Up so saffron, really rust and cranberry crisp. The patterned paper is from the Fall Leaves Collection by Adornit ~ Carolee's Creations. I've done some stitching around the layers and used the mesh Cuttlebug embossing folder to give it some added texture. I hope you like it and it makes you SMILE!

Beeee Happy! ~ Pam :)

Girls Just Want to Have FUN!

All Smiles ~ Terrific Mail Day ! ! !

Yesterday, I received the most adorable card from my friend Lesa in Massachusetts. It is a 4-1/4" square card with the cutest little image from Inkadinkado. She has colored the girls and added a sprinkle of glitter on their hair bows and on the pink scallops. I love it! And I'm so happy that Lesa is feeling creative, as it has been two week's since her first chemo treatment. If you have a minute, please stop by Lesa's blog, "One Voice, One Life, One Breast Cancer" and leave a comment or humorous quote to brighten her day and make her SMILE! :)

Last Friday, I received an email from my sister Judy in California titled "I'm a winner and so are you!" She was the lucky winner of a $20 gift certificate for a local scrapbooking shop and she asked what I wanted her to get for me. Seriously!? Obviously, I responded without hesitation and told her I could always use some Christmas papers. I'll be darn if she didn't go shopping right away, mailed them on Saturday and I had them already on Monday! Wooo Hooo! Check out this wonderful variety of beautiful papers...there is even one for "sisters" and a "30th" paper!(our daughter Katie turns 30 in December) How FUN! Now I can't wait to create something with them!

Also, I've received Suzi's holiday circle journal for Shuggy's swap and will be working on that this week. It's such fun to see how each person creates their two-page spread. Her theme is "holiday traditions" and we have several in our family so this will be a JOY to work on.

On a serious note, do you know anyone who lives in the southern California area where all these disastrous wild fires are burning out of control? My nephew is going to school in San Diego and told me last night that he is safe...about 15-20 miles away from the closest fire. My dear friend Tami at Dapple Designs lives by Lake Arrowhead and had to evacuate yesterday. I've been thinking of her all day and of all the others living in that area too. I cannot imagine going through this. How tragic to see the beautiful land around you burned to ashes, or even worse...your home and everything in it. Let's pray for them and their safety...and for all the firefighters too. God bless them!

I'm not feeling very creative tonight so may just browse a few cardmaking blogs for inspiration. Have you all heard of Google Reader? Am I the last to know about it? It is wonderful! And makes it much easier it is to keep up with new posts on all my favorite blogs. If you haven't already, do check it out. I promise, you'll be glad you did! :)

Have a terrific week everyone and Keep Smiling! ~ Pam :)

Happy Fall, Y'all! {Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24}

This is my creation for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24. Her blog, "Fresh & Fun", is one of my favorites and she is one of the BEST of the BEST! Her talent is amazing and she continually inspires me.

For this standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card, I've started with Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie cardstock folded at the top. I layered on the autumn leaf patterened paper by Karen Foster. You may not be able to see it in the photo, but there is a sparkle around some of the leaves. This was a "free" pad of paper that I got at Archivers for spending $50 last time I was there. The image is from my DIL Jami's new Stampin Up set ~ "Seasonal Whimsy". I almost bought this set and wish I had! I love it! Here, I stamped it with my Pumpkin Patch Kaleidacolor Spectrum Pad. The sentiment "Happy Fall" is a little $1 Michaels stamp. I've layered Stampin Up cardstock really rust and ruby red. The edges are distressed with ruby red.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Poem for Today ~

I love the leaves
I do not know why.
Is it their colors or how they fly?
They crunch and crinkle
Under my feet;
I pile them up
And take a leap!

Creepy Crawly, Oh My Golly!

Ok, just one more creation with my Stampin' Up "Batty For You" set and then I'm going to call it quits for Halloween cards! Yesterday, my sweet DIL Jami came out and we had fun stampin' it up! She was on a roll and made two incredible cards to post on her very neglected blog, Crazy Daisy Creations. :) Poor thing, she has just been too busy with her college classes and work lately to find much time for stamping.

Jami brought out her "Five in One Card Cover" template from Stampin' Up and helped me make a pattern and create this little Halloween gift box. Isn't it cute?! If you are interested in creating one of these nifty little boxes, there is an excellent tutorial by Beate Johns at SplitcoastStampers.

I tried to post this last night and the Blogger photo upload was down. What would we all do if Blogger ever bit the big one? Oh my! I shudder to think.

DH is making breakfast this morning so better go eat now. I'll be back later with another card creation I made last night for Beate's Weekend Challenge.
Happy Sunday & Smiles 2 U! ~ Pam :)

I'm Batty For You!

I think I may have told you I was done making Halloween cards, but I just received my Stampin' Up! order last night and "Batty for You" is one of my favorite new sets! I think I'll make a couple more cards yet before I put this away for the season. It is just so stinkin cute! :)

Don't you love this batty paper too? My friend Donna (craftingcrazy) sent me several terrific Halloween papers a few weeks ago and I still haven't used them all. Does this design look familiar? It is a revised version of Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #7 on Poetic Artistry. I just flipped it sideways for something a little different.
On my second card (the large photo), I added the little stamped bats at the top and bottom [Stampin Up Halloween Backgrounds] and I also stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with the SU black detailed embossing powder. It really brightens the image and gives it more dimension.

Are you happy it's FRIDAY? I am! :) Always love my weekends and this should be a good one! It finally quit raining and it's suppose to be in the 70's. You can't beat that for late October.

Have a terrific weekend everyone! Smiles, Pam :)

Hugs to YOU! {Heidi Grace Shimmer Glitter}

Have you ever bought a decorative paper you absolutely love so much that you can't bring yourself to use it...you prefer to *save* it? :)Well, such is the case with this fabulous "shimmer glitter" paper by Heidi Grace Designs.

This layout is a take-off from the one I did last Thursday. For this one, I just turned the card sideways and put the tag on the top. It's a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card but I have cut 1-1/2 inches off of the front fold.

Would you believe I used FIVE punches for this one tag? :) That's just CRAZY! LoL First is the scalloped punch, then a 1-1/2" circle of choc chip. Next, I punched a piece of the flowered background paper with a 1-1/4" circle punch, then I stamped the sentiment on kraft paper and punched out the center of it with my 3/4" punch. After that, I punch the sentiment out with my 1-3/8" punch. I attached this top sentiment layer with mini glue dots. Then, to attach the tag to the card, I used Stampin Up dimensionals. (I should buy them by the case because I use them *all* the time)

My dear friends, since this card was created with all of YOU in mind . . . I would like to send it out to one of you faithful blog readers. Please just leave a comment on this post with a link to your blog or gallery... or your favorite stamping website! I'll do a random draw, if necessary. :)
*THANKS SO MUCH* for stopping by today! Smiles 2 U! ~ Pam :)

Enjoy Life! { Feel the Mojo! }

It's MONDAY! And honestly, I was not feelin' the cardmaking mojo tonight! That is, until I surfed on over to one of my favorite blogs ~ Poetic Artistry and saw this wonderful sketch that Julee created for "Mojo Monday." How did she know that this was just the inspiration I needed?!

Once I saw the sketch, it didn't take me long to create this card because I knew which paper I wanted to use. It is "Dried Flowers" by SandyLion, layered onto Stampin Up Close to Cocoa.

The sentiment is from an acrylic set called "Greetings Squares" by Impression Obsession. I've stamped it on a piece of the same patterned paper and punched it out with the 1-1/2" circle, layered with the scalloped circle. Added some zig-zag stitching, the ribbon, a couple brads...and wala!

I'm late posting a card tonight because I needed to bake some goodies for Boss's Day tomorrow. I got it in my head to "decorate" my bars by writing "Happy Boss's Day Kevin!" with frosting. I don't know what came over me to do this, but let me tell you I DON'T have cake decorating mojo tonight! :) Next time I'll know to leave well enough alone! And, don't even ask for a photo!!! :) Luckily, the guys at work will eat anything! :)

Have a fantastic week everyone and thanks for stopping by today! Smiles 2 U, Pam :)

Hooked on Halloween! {Little Witch by Lockhart Stamp Co.}

Today at the Stamp Shack one of the gals asked who all had their Christmas cards done. What?! Not in my wildest dreams can I imagine myself having Christmas cards done in October! I'm lucky if I get mine sent out before Christmas...or at all! :)

Honestly, I'm still hooked on Halloween and trying to use all the stamps in my stash for this FUN holiday. Yesterday, I remembered that I had purchased this cute "Little Witch" wood mounted rubber stamp last year at Scatter Joy ~ one of my favorite rubber stamp/scrapbooking stores in Sioux Falls, SD. Actually, I took a class they offered with Karen Lockhart on coloring with prismacolor pencils and it was FANTASTIC! If you want to take a peek, Karen has an excellent tutorial on coloring this cute little witch on her website ~ The Lockhart Stamp Company . I probably should have referred to it before I colored mine, not after! LoL

In case you're wondering the size of the image, it is approx 1-3/4 x 1-3/4. My card is only a little 3 x 3 square. I've used misc scraps of paper for layering. The green piece around the image is punched with the Marvy Uchida giga scalloped square.

Did I tell you that I WON one of the card challenges that the Stamp Shack had last weekend for World Cardmaking Day? I was doing the hApPy DaNce yesterday when I went to the mailbox and found this FUN package! These are my first stamps from Sassafras Lass! I just surfed on over to their website and I'm amazed at all the cool things they offer! Would you believe there is even a line of "Serendipity" patterned paper?! WOW! And, I love the "Owl Pals" and "Blooms & Stalks" clear stamp sets too. Oh dear, this could be trouble! :)

I do want to say a big THANK YOU to the Creative Team at the Shack as they go above and beyond in getting everyone motivated to participate in these challenges. YOU GO GIRLS!

Are you all enjoying your weekend? It's cold and rainy here in Nebraska and our beloved Huskers are having their worst season ever, but ... life goes on! :) Hey, I'll bet you all would help me with my most recent "mission" to find humorous quotes. My dear friend Lesa who I told you about yesterday, emailed me and said she needs HUMOR! I am going to *try* to send her one humorous quote each day. For instance, today I sent her "Somedays you're the dog and some days you're the hydrant." : ) I hope it made her smile! Anyway, will you help me? If you have a favorite humorous quote, please email me or leave a comment on this thread. I would appreciate it! !! Smiles 2 U All ~ Pam : )

Hope for Hooters! { Going Pink for Lesa }

What an inspiration she is!

My dear friend Lesa in Massachusetts, an avid rubber stamper and cardmaker, found out in June she has breast cancer. Lesa has had surgery and started her chemo treatments this week. Right now, she's feeling pretty "icky"!

With all this, she still took time to send me this wonderful friendship card. I love this image and how she's colored it so bright and cheerful. Also, she sent this cute M&M bag with the little tag stamped with the symbolic pink ribbon. I especially like the pinback button with the owl that says "Hope for Hooters".

On Lesa's blog, "One Voice, One Life, One Breast Cancer", she shares with candor, her daily emotional journey in the battle against breast cancer. If you have a minute, please visit her blog and leave a few words of encouragment to brighten her day. I know it would mean a great deal to her.

Most of you already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are many excellent informational websites, but the following is one that Lesa mentions on her blog:
"Early Detection and Breast Cancer: What Every Woman Should Know"

My quote for today is the sentiment inside this card from Lesa ~

"Friendships multiply joys and divide grief" ~ Thomas Fuller

Oh, how true! :) God bless you Lesa . . . and all my dear friends! Smiles, Pam :)

What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited.
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot erode faith.
It cannot destroy peace.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot suppress memories.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot erode the spirit.
It cannot conquer the soul.

Edited on 10-14-07 to add: Lesa said the outside stamp on her card above is from Inkadinkadoo and the inside sentiment is Impression Obsession.

Detective Work on Previous Post's Paper. . .

Several of you asked where I got the patterned paper used on yesterday's stitched card or if I could tell you which company made it. I usually post that information, but I wasn't 100% certain whether I bought it at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Also, there isn't any company info printed on the back. There is a white barcode label with an 800 phone number and the name of the paper - Mixed Dot and Mixed Paisley. I called the 800# and received an answering machine for MAKING MEMORIES. How's that for fine detective work?! LoL I only bought one 12 x 12 sheet of each or I would offer to share it!

I do want to thank you all for your sweet comments about the card.
You made me smile! ~ Pam :)

Stitching Up a New Layout!

Today was another one of those days when I just couldn't wait to get home and stamp it up! When there are slow times at work, I actually daydream about certain cards I want to create. Shhhh, please don't tell my boss! :)

This card is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card, but then I cut 1-1/2" off the bottom of the front fold. To make the circle cut outs, I've used the 1-3/8" & 1-1/2" punches.
The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set ~ "Special Messages" and I've stamped it with blue bayou. I've used Stampin' Up kraft cardstock for the base and layered the patterned paper with blue bayou. I decided to finish it off by zig-zag stitching around the layers with my Janome Sew Mini. Have I told you how much I *love* this little machine? It's so easy to operate! {Enabler Alert!} I heard they are on sale again at Hancock Fabrics! :)

I've decided that I need to start mailing out more of these cards I've been making. Who has a birthday coming up in the next month or so? I would love to send this card to YOU! :)

Tomorrow is FRIDAY already! I really do like my job, but still look forward to the weekends!
Thank you all for stopping by my blog today! Smiles 2 U! ~ Pam :)

Stamp Club Creations { Stampin' Up! }

These are the cards that we made last Monday night at Stampin' Up Stamp Club. It doesn't look like I'm going to find time for cardmaking tonight so thought I would post these for you. Aren't they sweet? And both of them are fairly easy to make too! :)

If you have any questions about them, please email me or leave a comment and I'll explain further. Gotta run...

Which Witch is This? { Happy Halloween! }

Many of you have already moved on to making Christmas cards, but here I am hooked on Halloween! There are countless patterned papers, images and embellishments for this spooky holiday . . . not to mention all the terrific rubber stamps!

Thank you to my friend Donna in Oregon for sending me the sweet witch image that I've used for this card. I've colored her with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. Isn't she just the cutest, happiest witch you ever saw? :) I'm planning to send this card to my daughter Katie. When she was in high school she had a Halloween party and dressed up in a witch costume. Her hair is naturally curly and she got it to stand straight out exactly like this! It was hilarious!

This is a 5" square card using Stampin Up really rust cardstock and KI Memories striped paper. For the background, I stamped with a ball of saran wrap and added the little bats from the SU Halloween Backgrounds. The black cardstock was "cuttlebugged" with the mesh embossing folder. Brads and stitching to embellish!

Yikes! It's 10 o'clock already and I must get to bed earlier than I did last night. Sweet Dreams, Pam :)

So Grateful . . . { Stampin' Up! & Hero Arts Stitched Together }

Happy World Card Making Day 2 All of U!

There are oodles of exciting events and challenges going on this weekend to celebrate World Card Making Day. I can't begin to keep up on them all, but I have participated in a few! And, lucky for me, I'm even the HAPPY winner at The Stamp Shack with this card I'm posting today. :)

This is a 5" square card using Stampin' Up! really rust cardstock for the base. I've layered on this lovely leaf paper by Karen Foster Design. The oak leaf flourish is a Hero Arts wood mounted rubber stamp and the sentiment 'grateful' is from the SU set "Small Script". These have been stamped on natural cardstock with the Kaleidacolor Spectrum pad ~ pumpkin patch. I've weathered it a bit with one of the SU Itty Bitty Background stamps and Tim Holtz --old paper-- Distress Ink. The ribbbon is a beautiful plaid metallic ribbon that I picked up last week at Hobby Lobby 50% off! { Shopping Tip: don't forget to check out the ribbon by the roll in the fabric dept. There is a much better selection than you'll can find in the craft dept. }

Well, that's all for now, but I should have more to post later! Smiles, Pam :)

The History of World Card Making Day ~
World Card Making Day began in 2006 as National Card Making Day. Founded by Paper Crafts magazine in an effort to bring card makers together at the busiest card-making season of the year, it was first held on October 7, 2006. The initial celebration involved the Paper Crafts magazine audience only; however, due to the positive response it received and the worldwide popularity of card making, Paper Crafts recognized the need to expand, and the holiday transformed into World Card Making Day.Now in its second year, World Card Making Day has been expanded to include a dedicated web site; a wider, more inclusive level of sponsorship; and a marketing campaign designed to get the word out at the grassroots level. These steps were taken in hopes of uniting the card-making community (hobbyists, retailers, manufacturers, and more) and celebrating the connection and creativity that is at the heart of card making.

Stampin' UP! { FUN Stamp Club Projects! }

Can you believe that I've had two different Stampin' Up! Stamp Clubs this past week?! Does that seem a tad bit obsessive to you? :) I really didn't intend to join two, but . . . you know how it is when you love to stamp and get new ideas!

On Monday night, I made some terrific cards with SU Demo~Tanis. My favorite is a turning wheel card with the "Wild About You" set. Sadly, I accidently left my cards there and don't have them to post for you. :( Since I was hostess for the evening, I got to choose a level 1 or 2 stamp set and $40 in FREE merchandise. Was that ever FUN!?! There are just SO many stamp sets, beautiful patterned papers and cool embellishments that it made for a very difficult decision. I ordered some cardstock, mini binder clips, and the "Batty for You" and "Wild About You" sets and chose the "In the Spotlight" hostess set.

Last night my sweet DIL Jami {Crazy Daisy Creations} was hostess of my other stamp club with SU Demo~Jason. This is a super FUN group that I'll call the "Margarita Club". :) Jami made the most delicious braided chicken croissant recipe from her Pampered Chef cookbook. (Yes, she's not only an awesome cardmaker and jewelry maker, she can cook too! :) And we love to eat . . . and drink margaritas! I know, you're all wondering when we meet next and if you can join up. :) Sure! the more, the merrier! (Sharon, Nancy, Donna, Alexandra, Flossie, Michelle, Charmaine are you reading this? We would love to have you!)

The first card we made is a "Scratch 'n Sniff". Isn't it cute? We've used river rock as the base and the layers are purely pomegranate and blue bayou. The stamp set is "Eat Cake". The scratch 'n sniff is a mixture of kool-aid and embossing powder. I love this color combo and don't think my photo does it justice. (finished card is 6-1/2" x 3-1/4")

The second card is one that Jason told me not to post on my blog because she totally "borrowed" the idea from another blog. Well, obviously I didn't listen and I'm posting it anyway because I *love* it and think it's GREAT! If the original creator of this card just happens to visit my blog, I hope she'll leave a comment and tell me her name so I can give her full credit for designing such a super card. For this one, we used the Coluzzle Cutting System. I don't have this and think I might *need* it now. :) It worked perfectly for cutting this half circle.

This card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (to top of circle). The base cardstock is basic grey and we've layered on purely pomegranate and taken with teal. The stamp set is "Priceless" with the "So Swirly" jumbo wheel used for the background. I think the majority of us bought this set last night! :)

Today is WORLD CARD MAKING DAY and this weekend is the 1st Birthday of The STAMP SHACK and they have a marathon of card challenges going on, so I'm hoping to stamp it up and have more to post tomorrow.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
Smiles, Pam :)

"Be the CHANGE . . . { Rubber Stampede }

. . . you want to see in the WORLD."

This is a 5-1/4" square card. The quote by Mahatma Ghandi is a stamp by Rubber Stampede and the patterned paper is "Dried Flowers" by SandyLion.

I'm not sure where the evening went, but it's getting late already. I did get my holiday circle journal done tonight, but just this one card. There aren't enough hours in the day for everything I want to do! I'll bet you all know that feeling, don't you? :)

I hope you're having a great week so far! Smiles 2 U, Pam :)
