S Fold Halloween Card

So there's been a WILD buzz about SFold/ZFold cards and I thought to myself "Okay! I HAVE to attempt to make one!" And of course the first thing that came to mind was HALLOWEEN! haha I went on YouTube and found so many tutorials on how to make them.

I really like the way mine came out. I LOVE vampires.. so my pumpkin had to be one. LOL I'd really appreciate comments on what you REALLY think about it. (I'm always looking for a challenge to do, so your honest comments makes me feel good so I can strive to make another card better) Thanks so much guys!


OH BTW! Does anyone or has anyone ever had trouble with their Cuttlebug!? If you look closely in my pictures, the lime green cardstock, how it came out kinda like tearing the paper.? I want to know if anyone has ever had this problem and if so.. how to fix it. Thanks!

5 Million Celebration Challenge

"Can you believe that My Pink Stamper has really reached 5 million hits?" Sounds like Robyn is EXCITED. And she should be! Today's challenge has to feature a bird. Yes that's right people.. a bird! I was really torn as to what bird to use.. and I settled with a turkey. As you all know Halloween is my all time favorite holiday. But I gotta say Thanksgiving is up there as well.. who doesn't love food!? HAHA Anyways, I made a Thanksgiving card for this challenge. So if you guys want to play along and/or if you are not a follower of MyPinkStamper.. PLEASE head on over to her site & join!

This came as a total shock to me but THANK YOU SO MUCH Sheena for this award. I'd also like to thank you for becoming a follower of mine! I really appreciate all the comments on my blog.

Here are the rules:
Once you picked up your award, please post it on your blog and answer these two questions:

1. The best project I ever made was...

I picked this card because I LOVE the embossment to it. I LOVE Halloween so this card just suits me well.

2. I like to craft because...
It relaxes me. I first starting scrapbooking but when I discovered card making.. I couldn't get enough! I love to just sit down, blast my music and make cards!

"Then select 3 people to award the blog award to. Post their names and blog addresses and go leave a comment on their blog. The award winner will pick up their star, who will then do the same thing"

Halloween Card

So a couple of days ago I went to my local Michael's and bought myself a Cuttlebug! (I used my 50% off coupon and only paid $39.99 for it! Awesome huh!?) I had already told myself I was only buying ONE embossing folder for it.. since I knew I could find CHEAP ones online. As you can see, I ended up buying the Spots & Dots folder. Prior to this day I had found and bought A LOT of Halloween scrapping supplies (also at Michael's) so I automatically thought "I HAVE to make a Halloween card"! lol And I have to say I LOVE the way it came out! What do you guys think!?

How to:
Card (orange cardstock)- cut @ 5 3/4" x 9"
Black cardstock (embossed with Spots & Dots)- cut @ 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
Green bat cardstock (Holiday pack I found at my local WalMart for $5)- cut @ 5 1/2" x 1"
Pumpkin (Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cart)- cut @ 3"
The Happy Halloween ribbon & purple "rhinestones" were bought at Michael's and I added the google eyes to the pumpkin, to make him look funky.

MPS September 11th Challenge

Hey guys! As we all know, September 11th has got to be the saddest day here in America. I still, to this day, remember exactly what I was doing when I heard what happened (on tv). I'd like to THANK all of our military men and women who risk their lives and work so hard everyday to protect us and our country! GOD BLESS AMERICA and our troops!
