Hello again my crafty friends.
Fall is in the air in Apple Valley :)
It's cool in the early morning and evening.but still gets warm during the day.
I love the Fall and all the beautiful changing autumn leaves. It's such a pretty site to see.

As you may know, I LOVE clocks and have many in my house.
Today I would like to share this beautiful Fall leaves clock that I made for the Autumn Challenge over at  Click on the link to see all the entries on Facebook. 

 It's all 
made from card stock and is a working clock.

I have four layers of leaves. I glued some and others I pop dotted to
give it depth. I use Tim Holtz distressing inks on all the leaves.

This is the card from the kit.

I used to the leaves in Mary's "Leaves Are Falling svg kit" below.

Haunted Forest Bewitched Cabin

Hi my crafty friends!
It's that time of year again, to begin decorating for Fall and Halloween. It's been in the
100's here, but the early mornings are nice and cool.

Everyone needs to make a Haunted house, right? Well, I'm not really into scary things, but I
just couldn't resist this darling Haunted Forest cabin from svgcuts.
Mary created a marvelous house with the curved roof and detailed decor.

 I also used her Free
witch on the broom

This is the inside with plenty of room for tea lights or a gift.

Everybody knows who these guys are, right? Well my friend came over
and she just had to add these little guys. Not sure where she got them from but they look so cool standing on the side of the house.

This is Mary's Haunted Forest Bewitched Cabin.
I Love her papers and chalking!

This is the Whole Spooky kit!
You can get this kit by clicking the link below.

This house was made by my daughter Jessica, when she and my
granddaughter came down to visit. She said she wasn't a crafter,
but I think she did a Fantastic job making the Haunted house. Excuse
the photo for being so dark, The sun wasn't up when they left at
3 am.
Yep, that's not a type o!!!
She didn't want to leave until she finished it. Whew! What a long
long long day, or should I say days.
She had so much fun and wants to come down for more fun projects.
I think she got the fever :)

This was made by my granddaughter, Can you tell it was 3 am :)
Nicole loves to craft and draw. I'll have to ask her
for some of her drawings. She had so much fun making this Gerber flower and
vase arrangement and did a Fantastic job.
Her favorite color is Yellow and this will go perfect in her room.
She was soooo tired when they left. They had a couple hour drive home also.
I told them next time they will have to stay for a week :)

This is the kit that the Gerber flowers and vase were from.

Click on the link above to get this whole kit.
Beautiful collection!

That's it my friends for another day.
I hope that I've inspired you to start crafting.
I love my Sizzix Eclips machine!!
Have a great week my friends.

Gorgeous Coin Purse Cards

Hello my friends!
It's beginning to feel like Fall in the early morning, even though my thermometer reaches nearly 100.
I've changed my wreath on my door to Fall flowers and put flowers and  scarecrows under each window sill. And, brought out my Large Scarecrow for the front step. 
I think by next month it will be cooler :)

Today I would like to share these adorable adorable coin purse cards.
 I simply Love them!

These delightful purses are a FREE cutting file over at Under A Cherry Tree site
They are a surprise Freebie from Lettering Delights.
A BIG Thank you for a Fabulous creation!

Click below to grab this awesome file.

Aren't these adorable!!!!

Love this floral paper!

I used gold patterned paper for the clasp and I glue three together to make it sturdy. 

These purses are sooooo easy to make. One cut for the base and two cuts for the clasp. And
if you want to put a liner, but it's not really necessary.
Can you see these all deck out in Christmas! 

This is one of my favorites!
Sooo cute!

Each purse is unique and darling. I also sized a smaller white silhouette for the
inside. The card opens from the top of each purse. This one measures approximately 7" x 5.5".
You can decorate them with pearls, flowers or just plain papers.
They look beautiful and are so easy and quick to make.

Great card for someone that Loves purses and shopping or someone special on your list.

That's it my friends for another day!
I hope that I've inspired you!!!
Keep your eye open for my Haunted Halloween cabin. 
See what my daughter and granddaughter created!!!!!
Gorgeous creations!!! 

Have a great week!

Christmas Poinsettia and Snow Globe Box Card

Hello my lovely crafty friends!
Yes, I am starting early this year on my Christmas and Halloween projects.

I just had to share these beautiful Christmas box cards with you today.
 The Poinsettia and Snow Globe are
from Mary's "Christmas Box Cards svg kit"
See link below
This is Mary's Poinsettia box card. I love how she used glitter around the edges of
her poinsettia flowers and all her special details. So beautiful!

This is an amazing collection of Box Cards!
Click below to get the Christmas Box Cards kit.

This gorgeous Poinsettia box card was made according to Mary's measurements.
It was so easy and quick to make. I really love how it turned out. 
I will be make more of these for sure.

This is the back of the card. I used tiny gold brads and stamped with a musical stamp.

I inked the red flowers with Tim Holtz inks and added a gem to the middle. The delicate poinsettia flower in the middle is a die from Tattered Lace. Gotta love their dies!
This is the card closed and laying flat. 
Super quick and easy card to make for that special person on your list.
This is a WOW card!!

This poinsettia box card is almost double in size of the previous one above.
It's hard to tell by the pictures, but it's a nice size. Not sure about an envelope
for this one. It would make a nice centerpiece on a table or counter.

This is the back of the card. I added an extra flower to finish it off.

You'll never guess what he'x made of!!!
He was just sitting there saying, pick me, pick me. haha
And, I did.
He was the perfect touch to a beautiful card.

Make your guess in the comments below this post and I post it on my next posting.

Tell me if you think he's made of paper, plastic,material, metal, rubber or ???????????
I'll have a special Surprise for all that post a comment.
Shhhhh I can't tell..... its a SURPRISE :)

What's the name of that song???
Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!
Yep, SNOW would be a cool surprise here in Apple Valley.
It's been in the 100's for weeks on end.

Soooo, that's why it's so refreshing to make snow cards with the Air conditioning running and Christmas music ringing through the house.. LOL

And, if I just happen to answer my phone, I may wish you Happy Holidays :) LOL

Am I the only one that does this???

Isn't this just the cutest Snow Globe box card you ever saw!!!

Yes, I still have glitter all over me. lol This was a fun card to make and will bring
a wow to the person receiving it. They can sit it on a counter or table to display all season long.

I designed Let It Snow caption in my Ecal program and it cuts out like butter. I welded the letters together,
so you don't have to glue each tiny letter.The words  "Let it "  is all one piece and "Snow" is one piece. I cut a shadow layer for each, so all you have to do is glue those two pieces together.
 Quick and easy!

What a great collection!
Take a look at all Mary & Leo's Christmas Box Cards!!!
I'll be making more of these for sure!

This is Mary's Snow Globe Box card. Beautiful card and gorgeous picture, Leo.

Midnight Jamboree Halloween Pumpkin Clock

Hi again my friends!
I just knew I would be making a clock of some sort. If you know me, I Love clock. lol
I must have over 45 clocks throughout my home. Yep, I know that's a lot of noise, but I love all
the chimes.
When my son comes up to visit, he shuts them all down and takes the batteries out. He says
he can't sleep with all that noise. Soooo in the morning nobody knows what time it is :)
 Well,that's son for you lol

 I cut many layers of each piece so that the whole clock is like heavy cardboard. 
It can be hung on a wall or set in a stand. 
I love how it came out and will probably have him displayed on my wall around Halloween.
For the large base outside pumpkin I enlarged the tiny pumpkin and also made a smaller inside layer.
The fall leaves are silk and I added a few buttons and a bow.
Really fun project to make and so easy when you use Mary's files. If you would like detailed instructions, please email me and I will be happy to help you.

The kit I used for the clock face is Maison de Madeline

The kit I used for the small pumpkin is from the Midnight Jamboree
