Maya Road Hauted House

I have had so much fun playing with Maya Road, Ten Second Studio Metal and the Cuttle Bug.
These little houses are just so much fun to cover. The price is right....so you can have one for every season.

I used the Maya Road House and the New Border pack as well as many of their ribbons and Mist. I really wish that you could see the little bat flying above the house better.

There are many different techniques that I used to give the house and the tag book texture. So...if you want to learn more, call The Crafty Scrapper and sign up for my class on the 25th of October.

Album Class

I don't know that I shared this before. This is an album that I am teaching a class on at the Crafty Scrapper in November. I thought It was just mega fun. I can't wait to teach my class. I think making these albums is just too much fun.

This is one that I made for my school notebook this year. I put all my calendars and notes in it.

SASSAFRASS and Maya Road

Can I just say that this paper is amazing. This paper is like my childhood! Fun, fanciful and busy! When it came into the Crafty Scrapper, I knew that I had to use it. Now, this paper was so awesome that it didn't need a lot but, I did have to add some Maya Road to my LO. I used the LOVE from the key chain set sprayed with the new copper mist. I embossed the sheer flower with black embossing powder and curled it with the heat gun. I ran the wings from the key chain through the Cuttlebug and embossed them, then inked them. I took some of the oval scallopped sheers and freehanded some clouds out of them. Then of course I added my sweet boy. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Chipboard Makes me Happy

It has been a couple of weeks since I made this....but I did want to share this. I made this cute Little Yellow Bicycle book using their fun paper. I just love how it turned out. I haven't finished putting all the pictures in it. I just put some picts so you could see what it looked like.

I have to say that I love this company and it's paper. It is so much fun. I love the little skeleton men. I thought it went very well with the costumes that I made.

I also used some other papers mixed in....I'm not sure which ones they are....but Sherri or someone else will let me know.

I also have to say that these precious costumes were super easy to make. I took black sweat suits. Then I freehandedly (is that a word?) cut out bones out of felt. The bones were then glued down with some tacky glue.

The costumes were pretty durable and lasted two years.

But alas...the boys have grown...they cannot wear these bones any more. What ever will I do?

I've made the boys eagles, vampires, tigers, Zorro, Star Wars characters....what will I do? I really like using sweat shirts so if there is something else you can think of....let me know.

My friend Sara gave me this little beauty. She also told me I had to make a post today! LOL!
She gave me some rules....I hate to say that I am not very good at following rules. I am bad. I admit it. But when I started looking, the people that I heart reading their blogs....already had the little bloggy picture.
But I do want to say, "Thank you, Sara! I love you!"
