Guesting at CASology!

Boo to you!! I'm happy to let you know that I'm joining the fabulously talented CASology design team today as a guest! Thanks Melissa!! The cue word for the day is {ghost}, check out my cute little spook!

Isn't she sweet ~ hee! Several years ago I purchased a little pack of clear plastic ghosts from Archivers. I saved one to use as a template. After cutting her out, I ran her through a DeNami Design star embossign folder then added a scrap of black paper behind her eyes. She's popped up on the card with foam tape. My letters are by Hero Arts. I love the way my Halloween twine bow turned out. All wispy and flowy just like a little ghost would be!

I can't wait to see what your take on the cue word is!
Have a great day friends ~Lisa

cQc #265 ~ Beware!

Hey there! We have a new color palette up over at the ColourQ and we would love to have you join in the fun this week! I focused on the little ghost hanging on the far left in the tree to create a treat box!

The clear box held mini pens that I bought for my DIL's baby shower. I thought they were the perfect size to hold a Reese's Cup Pumpkin. I added two bands of spider web Washi Tape to the lower portion of the box. Next I stamped some white cardstock with sentiments {Beware stamp set} and star splatters {Journey stamp set} from Precious Remembrance Shop

My cute little ghost was made from a pattern I've had for a thousand years. I don't have a name, just a die cut that I bought. After cutting him out, I embossed him with a star folder (DeNami Design) then cut a circle from his tummy to create a shaker. I filled it with the Trick or Treat Mix sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I think it looks like he has LOTS of trick or treat candy in there!!! To dress him up just a bit I added a Mama Elephant bow tie.

Okay now get busy, lots of Halloween cuteness on that tree!
If you need an idea check out the DT projects, talk about fabulous ~ swoon!
Thanks for popping in ~Lisa


Precious Remembrance Shop Blog Hop!

Good Morning friends! Today the design team from Precious Remembrance Shop is having and inspiration blog hop using specific images from the {Beware} stamp set. Dyane asked that we all showcase the images on a treat project. And here's mine!

After creating my witches hat and a rosette adorned with a sparkly star, I added the pumpkin image to it. Next I stamped the trick or treat border sentiment. It was cut into three sections to add to the hat.

And this is what the hat sits upon!!

Two more of the cute circle images hang from the fringy ribbon that has been stamped with the open if you dare sentiment. I added some spider web Washi Tape to the lid of jar before plunking the hat on top!!

I had fun making this, hope you like it!!
Don't forget to hop along to see what the DT has in store for you today.  ~Lisa


My Sweet Beautiful Boy.....

A little piece of my heart and soul left this world today.
There are no words friends.


Time to Hop!!

Hello and welcome! As you can see from the graphic above we have a fun blog hop planned. The fabulous Winnie & Walter gals and Pretty Pink Posh design team have paired up for today's festivities! 

There are 2 prize packs up for grabs. Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop by W&W and PPP. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PDT on 10/27/2014. 

You should be arriving here from Leigh's blog. If not, no worries the complete hop list is below.

W&W sent each member of the PPP team two stamps sets of our choice ~ how GREAT was that!! I chose their fabulous {The Big, the Bold & Extras} along with {The Big, the Bold & Blessings} sets. I love the two step blooms and the over-sized sentiments!

From the PPP shop I've used the large scalloped and straight stitched line border dies (Stitched Borders 2) set along with sparkling clear sequins (4mm & 6mm). And finally I finished off my card with twine from a previously released kit.

Next up on the hop list is my teamie Maureen!! Enjoy the hop and good luck!


An Abundance of Cuteness for SSS!

Hey there bloggy friends! I'm back with another pair of those super cute baby booties for my soon to be granddaughter! I think I'll link these up at the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge, this week is anything goes! I really fancied this pair up and am so in love with them, check them out!

Oh goodness I don't think I can stand the cuteness!! Again, the booties are made from the Papertrey Ink dies using Vintage Cream felt. Then I layered on a PTI Beautiful Blooms II (Aqua Mist Felt), Turning a New Leaf leaves (Spring Moss felt), and a My Favorite Things mini rolled rose (Lavender Moon felt). I sewed a tiny pearl inside the rose and then sewed everything on once again nice and tight!!

And yet again we have a matching headband!

I boxed these up in a clear square cupcake box from DeNami Design on a bed of iridescent shred. Sheer ribbon and the headband served as a "bow". When I showed them to my hubby he said they looked like little glass slippers!! I thought that was such a cute response!!

This pair, along with those from yesterday, were both in the clear boxes on the head table at the shower. When my son and daughter-in-law saw them they loved them. When I told them I made them for the baby my son's mouth dropped open and he said "MOM...when did you learn to make shoes??" Another great response!!

Thanks for visiting and indulging me in my baby joy!!! ~Lisa
