Happy Halloween!

I think I have shared this craft before, but you would have to search the archives of the blog to find it. I made three of these mason jar votive holders for my neighbors for Halloween. We are getting together for pizza before trick-or-treating. I will share pictures of the crazy festivities later.

What have I been booing?

Our neighborhood is Booing each other. You leave a package for 2 of your neighbors after dark, ring the doorbell and run off before they catch you. These are a few of the items that I am putting in my bags(and the bag). I also bought these really cute skeletons at a dollar store and some Halloween napkins.

The Boo Banner is made out of felt using the Stampin' Up! Pennant die and the Serif Essentials alphabet. I hand stitched the letters on and added some buttons and ribbon.

The bag is a white canvas bag. I used the Serif Essentials alphabet and also a Sizzix pumpkin and ghost die. Hand stitched everything and then used a fabric glue to attach it to the bag.

The pin is made with the Autumn Harvest stamp set. I used black Stazon ink for the pumpkin. Using a blender pen I used Pumpkin Pie and Really Rust Classic ink to color it in. The stem is Old Olive. I used the Bitty Backgrounds and stamped it in Creamy Caramel. I also sponged the edges with Creamy Caramel ink. Added a button tied with hemp and hot glued it to a Pumpkin Pie grosgrain ribbon.

MDS Pumpkin Patch

New downloads are already available for My Digital Studio! I just did this card in about 5 minutes. I used the Pumpkin Patch and Thoughts & Prayers downloads. To make the moon I used the circle punch twice. One circle I made Barely Banana and the other I made in Whisper White. I just moved the Whisper White circle punch shape over the Barely Banana one until I got the crescent shape that I wanted. Clear as mud? :)

Mission Accomplished!

Whew! A new background and a header to match! I LOVE My Digital Studio!! Maybe I will stop making cards and just change my blog a lot....just kidding!

Under construction

I am trying to figure out how to upload a design that I did in My Digital Studio to the background on my blog. I apologize for the rather blah appearance right now. I hope to get this all figured by the end of the day!

My First Digital Studio Card!

This program is so much fun! I think I am going to be spending a lot of time on the computer. My poor boys are not going to happy that mom is taking over one of the laptops! I see a few mistakes that I made on this card but I don't think it is a bad first attempt.
