Halloween Greetings

Today I made this very simple card. I actually got the idea from KinderstampO to do this. Jess at KidnerstampO did a Christmas one and I thought that it would make a really cute Halloween card as well. I am finding that the possibilities are just endless! The pattern paper that I used for this card was all printed on my Cricut Imagine using Enjoy The Seasons cartridge and the pumpkins were a shape that was already on my Imagine machine. The stamped sentiment is KinderstampO Vintage Halloween set. I just love these stamps! Here is a link to the site where you can find the card that inspired me to make my card and a wonderful video showing you how to do it.

I used five pumpkins to make my mine and inked the edges to add that little extra something. I also put it through my paper crimper once the glue was dry to add a little texture. Hope that you enjoy this card thanks for looking!

Happy Scrappin,

Meet the KinderstampO Guest Design Team Blog Hop

Hello Everyone! I am so excited today to share with you my very exciting news! Of course I am sure that by my title you can  figure it out, That's right I am a Guest Design Team Member  for KinderstampO! I was so excited when I got the email inviting me to be a part of the very first guest design team  for KinderstampO. I have never done anything like this and am really looking forward to working with all the other wonderful and talented guest designers.

I created this card and matching book mark using my cricut Imagine and the kinderstampo friendship stamp set. I absolutely love the kinderstampO stamps!

I am a stay at home mother to three children 12 year old Samantha, 8 year old Chris, and 5 year old Austin. I live in Oregon about thirty minutes from Portland and have lived here most of my life. I have been married for ten years to a wonderful man  who is so supportive of my love for crafting. I am part of a local group called Artisans in the Grove. It is a group of local  Artists/Crafters who have gotten together to sell their handmade items at our local farmers market the first Wednesday of every month.

I have been scrapbooking and card making for about four years now. I started to scrapbook when my Dad passed away as a way to preserve his memories. I love to make mini albums and altered items as well.  I love to learn new techniques whenever I can. I use my Cricut expression and Cricut Imagine for almost every project as I am totally addicted to using them both. I love using stamps that go with the things that I cut on my cricut machines!

I am inspired most by my family. I can never get enough pictures it seems! I love scrapping with friends and helping others to preserve their memories as well.  I love watching my family go through layouts that I have made and reminisce in the memories from the photos on the page it is such a great feeling!

There you have it some information about me and I hope that you will come back to visit often! Before you go be sure to stop by KinderstampO  facebook page here
