Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Beans! Today I bring you a card using five different files from KaDoodle. The entire inspiration for this card is based off of the sentiment that is on the witches bowl. It says "A with and her little monster live here with one handsome devil". 

The files I used are :
KaDoodle Bug Designs:
Cutie KaToodles-Devil Bear

Monster Bash girls

Autumn Photo Card Frame

Today I made a pocket card that I used to frame two pictures. I found the base of the card or album in Silhouette's design store. I then used DCWV's 'The Autumn Splendor stack' for the decorative paper.

Up-cycle a Window Frame

I have always adored the up-cycled window frames. So when I found a whole bunch of these windows in my dad's storage barn, I couldn't pass up on grabbing one.

These windows came out of a school house from the 1920's. This one was caked with many many years of paint on it so cautiously, I got to work on stripping it down. As odd as it sounds, I wanted to paint it new so I could distress it to look old!

My husband thought I was crazy and couldn't understand my process behind it, but I LOVE the results! Each window measures to fit a perfect 8x10 photo!

Christmas is coming!

Are you ready for Christmas? I surely am not! I started my gift making off with two tumbler cups for my children. Every Christmas Eve, it is a family tradition to give them a Christmas movie, jammies, popcorn, and some other little movie related treats.

This year I plan on giving them each their own monogrammed cup. The perfect svg file for my projects are from Sanqunetti Designs. I am just testing some svgs for them as they are starting off a new svg line! These Christmas monograms come in a set of four. I was able to pick my own font from my design program to personalize each cup for my son and my daughter!

Thank a Nurse!

Hello Beans! It has been a while since I have done a popup box card. I needed to make a thank you card for a nurse and I wanted to make it funny to match her personality. KaDoodle Bugs 'Check up Kids' file is just perfect for this card! And I felt that Virginia Turtles 'Nurse on' stamp set was great for this card.

No lion...

You are the best! I had fun making this card. I knew I wanted the trees to pop, but how. So I made a slider front so the trees and lion pop up when the tab is pulled on!

Saturday, October 3, 2015 or angiogram?!

I made this card for a family member who needed to go in for an angiogram to see if there was a blockage in the heart. After all was said and done and this person was cleared of all concerns, a comment was mentioned about the person probably wanted to go fishing instead!

So I combined two KaDoodle Bug Design files (Charmkin Cutie- Gone fishing boy and Check-up Kids).

Home Sweet Home

I have said it before and I will say it again, fall time is my favorite time! I was asked to make a congratulations on a new home card. I started off with the base of the card (found at I modified the base of the card to what I wanted. I then found this cute little house and tree in silhouettes store as well. 

I dug into my files and found a perfect fall time details from my KaDoodle Bug Design files. I used the Autumn Squirrel file for the squirrel and pumpkins.
