Freebie Wednesday October 14th - Woohoo I'm Back!

Happy Hump Day everyone! It’s been a while since I shared my last freebie Wednesday and I am happy to say that I am back! Woohoo and ready to share a lot of new freebies each Wednesday with you! I hope that you enjoy using these cuts as much as I enjoy making and sharing them.

This week I was at Michaels looking for some Halloween paper and picked up the making memories “spook alley” line…oh la la this is the BEST Halloween paper! Trust me you need it ;) (enabler alert! LOL)

Anyway, feeling inspired by this line I decided to make a little silhouette witch to share with you all today. There are 2 cuts in this file one that is a shadow cut and the other that is the regular silhouette cut. I decided to layer them for my card.

Here’s a preview of what you can download (click here to download the CUT file):

And here is a card that I made with this cut along with some stamps from the stamps of life by Stephanie Bernard (love her new stamps):

Make sure to check back next week for another fun Halloween cut…it’s will be inspired from a VERY popular hard to find boarder punch (hint hint)!

Happy Creating everyone...and remember if you download these files, leave me a comment, it encourages me to continue to share !

Frightfully Monday...BOO!

Yes...sometimes Monday can just be a frightening thing! This weekend we received our first snow of the winter (and really we are still in fall) I am worried that this is going to be a hard winter and snow and I just do not mix that well...oh well lots of snow pictures of the kiddos right? Meanwhile I have my Starbucks apple cider by my side and trying to stay warm this morning!

So I have a few creations to share with you today! This week over at BBTB we were challenge to use the little monster from the Paper Dolls cartridge. I recently picked this cartridge up on a steal of a deal and I have to be honest and say I am not sure it will be a cartridge that I will use a lot but it does have a lot of fun cuts on it that are not just paper dolls, this week being one of them :) I jazzed up my little monster by adding one eye with a small button with a pearl in the middle. I also pulled out my Storybook cartridge and used a cut off of it for the background. The bottom was punched out using a Martha Steward punch. The sentiment was stamped with a small package of 3 clear stamps by Making Memories that I had picked up at Michaels a couple of weeks ago...I have a lot more fun things planned for these stamps, so stay tuned ;)

Here's my card:

Also, the October issue of Scrapstreet Magazine has been out a few weeks and this month we as designers were able to work with some Halloween products from Reminisce. I completed a Halloween layout of my daughter Ashlee (she was a pirate princess last year), a card, and I "up-cycled" a tin from Maya Road and turned it into a tic-tac-toe game...they kids are loving it :) Anyway, I thought since today has a Halloween theme I might as well share all of these creations today as well.

Have a happy week everyone!

It's Monday...Again

Do you ever feel like that? Some how monday just keeps on coming even if you are not ready? Today it's cloudy, raining and cold and I would much rather be sleeping then facing a new week of endless running.

This weekend I did a complete over haul of my craft room. I loaded up 6 boxes to donate and 3 bags full of stuff that I just threw out...I feel so much better in my studio this morning. I think this will help get me inspired to create! There's nothing better than having everything organized! So I hope to have a lot of goodies to share with you soon!

So, the best thing about Monday is the fact that we do a reveal over at BBTB - I really enjoy seeing what everyone comes up with from week to each of our takes are so different and yet we all worked with the same cut!

This week we were challenged to use the chandelier cut from the home accents cartridge. This little cut is oh so cute and there are so many different directions you can go. I decided to turn it into an encouragement card to send out to a friend of mine that is going through some trials right now.

Here's my card:

Well I have a little boy that is pulling on me...I told him that after we got the kids off to school, he and I would make cupcakes since there is a birthday in his class tomorrow and he has to bring his own due to his allergies...3-year-olds are not very patient when they want to make cupcakes :)

Have a super week everyone!
