This weekend I was able to make something! This is a play off a Valentine love signs I did last year, I thought I would do a Halloween version(and soon a Christmas one). The signs are double-sided with a different version on each side. It has a modern clean look, I really want to make a few more! I also made the skull/butterfly banner last week.
Today I posted this on the TCD's DT blog. This album features the TCD's Masquerade line, and I finally used my Zutter to bind the album. I haven't made a mini album in a while, mostly because I used up my little album stash. This is why I purchased a Zutter last month, I love the fact that I can make up a album in any size when I need one. I tried real hard not to make this album too bulky-but I do LOVE pop dots. I am also happy I was able to use some of my most favorite Halloween photos of the girls from 2yrs ago. I hope that this year I can take photos that are just as good-I will have to do some major bribing.
Today I am sharing a couple of cards-a Halloween card and a love card using TCD's Masquerade line and new TCD's Family Stories line. I even think I just might frame the Halloween card, Target has tons of shadowbox frames marked down. I bought 4 really nice metallic frames I will be adding photos to today.
I made a quick card today while I was waiting for the vet to call me to pick up Lulu-she has a ear infection. I wanted to make a quick card using to dies that Gail & Debbie had asked about-the spider & the frame. The spider is from Memory Box-I searched for the perfect spider die a few months ago. I didn't want it to be too cutsy! I also love to use a spider web die from Memory Box. Debbie, the frame is from My Favorite Things by Laina LambDie-Namics Die-Insert It - Instaframe
it is one of those go to things. I am always trying to use it on a card or a layout. This is the first time I have embossed it! The papers, brad, and Halloween kids die cut is TCD's Masquerade line
Hope this helps you ladies find what you asked about...
Hello Keisha, I have followed you for awhile and you are such a creative inspiration... Could you please tell me if the spider you used is a punch???? I really love that spider and would like to get one Thanks in advance
Keisha, I'm loving the cards in your last two posts. Are you using a die to cut the "polaroid" frame? It's the frame using spiderweb and striped paper in the previous post and this post the dark glitter paper. I love the look! thanks for the inspiration!
Keisha,I am new to your blog and just love the beautifil work you do. I especially love the clean uncluttered look,just beautiful. I am wondering if you would share where you purchased the beautiful mini chandelier in your studio? I absolutely fell in love with it and I have been looking fot something on the small-ish side. Thank you,I really enjoyed your blog.Jill
Nirupama...I am in the process of pulling out my Halloween decor & stash! Just today I purchased two unfinished paper mache houses that I sprayed with black chalk paint!! I am not sure if I will do anything else to them-maybe a few spiders hanging off them would be cool!
Sometimes it takes me a while to finish something, argh. Like these two cards! The black card has been on my desk for a couple of weeks, this week I added the 'boo' and the dot die-cut border. The spider card didn't take as long-but it did take a few days for me to work it out! What helped me finish these cards up was my new MFT border dies that came in the mail last week-I just happened to discover them in their "sale" section. They are a steal at $2 & $4-you better go grab'em before they are gone! The dot & mini dot are still there, the notch is gone. I love a good deal. Oh, and the new TCD's Masquerade line is on sale too...
This weekend I was in the mood to make a few Halloween cards. I had some new Halloween stamps and new dies I wanted to use asap! I especially love my new Spellbinders mini tag dies. They are so perfect everything!!
Hello Keisha, I love your card making style and the way you show them on your blog. Had to choose one of them as the inpiration card over at the liftchallenge blog. If you like to see our cards based on your card, please visit liftchallenge.blogspot.com. Have a nice day and keep inspiring us, thanks a lot for sharing your beautiful creations!
I love these, Keisha! That's a good idea, too. My husband always asks me at the last possible to minute to make cards for him, but they're not even half as good as these! I especially love the gold butterflies and feathers. How did you make them?!?
Hey Liz...thanks!!! Those butterflies were made using Stampin Up 'beautiful wings' die(tiny butterflies), 'beautiful butterflies' die(larger butterflies), Memory Bx 'moonlight' butterfly. And the fethers are My Favorite Things.
I can finally share my projects that I did for TCD's CHA booth! Her new lines-Masquerade Party, Santa's List, Memorabilia, Family Stories...are all fabulous! Forgive the bad photos, I was on my way out the door before I remembered I needed to take photos.
Oops, I totally forgot that I had this post scheduled to go live this morning! With the time change I fell asleep by 8(last night) and since the girls have today (& tomorrow) off from school-I slept in longer.
Today-I plan on packing up Fred and the gang-it will be so hard! I love having them hanging out on the sofa and seeing the crows here & there around the house. The house looks so empty when it is all put away, but I must move on to Thanksgiving...and then Christmas! It all comes and goes too fast...
Hope you came through the storm ok. Up here in Maine it got bad depending on where you live. The coast (where I am) took a beating, but we're fine. Hope you and yours are as well. Love the cards, gorgeous as always!
Hi Heaven, so glad to hear that you and your family are doing well after Sandy. It was sad to see how bad the storm had been for so many people on the east coast. We lost power for 24hrs-so we can't complain. I was stunned to see how bad it was in NY & NJ on Wednesday.
