Halloween Cubby For Extravaganza

Okay I have had lots of emails asking me about the My Creations Cubby which I decorated for my class at this years Convention in Dallas where I taught at Extravaganza - so here it is :O)
I used the Moonlight level 2 paper and matching Dimensional Elements and many Cricut flowers using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.

I used the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge for making the boxes and I think they look adorable - I used this cartridge for cutting out the bat (which is hanging on fishing line) and the cat (which wobbles as I added one of the Adhesive Springs to the back of it)

I decorated the Cubby itself my mixing and painting with Smokey Plum re-inker with the Create a Shade Pearl Paint and then added more re-inker to water in the Spray Pen and spraying over the painted areas to give more depth.

I actually donated this item to Close To My Heart's Operation Smile raffle and it raised $300 - woohoo :O)

Hope you like it as much as I do - Love Sara xxx

This was this morning's fun class at Misuzu's house :O)
We had a lovely time and are going to miss Akiko who leaves to return to Japan next month :O(


We made this fun bookmark - pictured above - using the Scholastic Workshop on the Go which uses the 2 new colors of ink - Ruby and Cashmere


and this Fall themed card using the September Stamp of the month - S1209 Fall Favorites. This card features sanded cardstock and the 'Spotlight' technique.
Hope you like them :O)

Dana's 'Its' Your Day' layout

I had to share this fabulous layout - created by my very dear friend Dana Kessler.
These were photos from our fun evenings in the Media Bar - after the work had finished - 
at our Dallas Convention.
Dana has used the National Scrapbooking Month stamp set - It's your Day - & you can see where she has used the fun backgrounds zig-zags & dots as backgrounds
 and then used the works and images to accent the layout. Love it xxx
Now to get her to make one for me :O)
Hope you like it - Love Sara

Roomie Gifts for Band Camp

I decided to make little gifts for the other Mom's who I shared a cabin with at Band Camp.
As there were 172 kids with us at camp - I knew we had the potential for a few stressful moments
so this hand lotion which I spotted in the drug store was just perfect.
The ticket & the sheet music were stamped in Outdoor Denim ink & sponge distressed in Desert Sand ink. 
I typed the saying on the computer - popped the lotion into a clear bag and added the bag topper and embellishments.
The ladies were thrilled with their little gifts
Hope you like it as much as they did - Love Sara X

Halloween Coffin Box

OMG - just how stinkin' cute is this.
The box is from the CTMH Cricut Artiste -and I love it :O) 
I cut it from black cardstock then cut another base from white cardstock - cut the sides off it so I was left with this slightly smaller piece - I made a circle shaped 'mask' from a post-it note, then sponged ink onto it 
- took the mask away and there is the moon.
I stamped the skeleton and then added liquid glass to the bones. 
I used black brads in the centers of the bats to make them look fatter.
I think its adorable and hope you do too :O)  Love Sara
