3 Girl JAM Daily Post ~ Happy Day Before Halloween

Hello Crafty Friends,

 Today is my day to share at 3 Girl JAM and I sure do love that I have been able to craft a little during the past week! I used a popular product from the 3 Girl JAM shop on my project...crinkle ribbon.

Here is my Design Team project...
This is probably going to be one of my last Halloween cards for this season, unless I get the urge to make one more for Friday. I am ready for the trick or treaters...at least until the candy runs out!

I used the following sketch

I used Iris and Summer Sprinkles crinkle ribbon to make a double bow. The witch is a sticker from Recollections.

Don't forget about our monthly challenge...
Spooky or Creepy
Last day to enter is October 31st
Prize: $15 Gift Certificate to 3 Girl JAM store

Stay Creative,

Polka Dots Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back for another DoubleClick Skittles Challenge.

The Challenge...Polka Dots/Circles
What a fun challenge that can be used for any occasion.

Here is my Design Team project...
I used the following sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I thought the "Cloudy" colored skittles made perfect bubbles. I also used "Chunky Rose" in the corners.

Here is the other September release stamp set from Scrappy Moms.

Hope you will join us at DoubleClick Skittles this week for our "Polka Dots/Circles" challenge. The other design team members have done a fantastic job, so be sure to check them out!

Halloween Challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back for another Die Cuttin' Diva Challenge.

This Week's Challenge...Halloween
Pumpkins, ghost, monsters, and candy are some of the things I think about on Halloween.

My Design Team Project...
frightening treat box with a creepy spider.

The box was cut from a My Scrap Chick file and the label die-cut on the front is a Spellbinder. The spider is from Miss Kate Cuttables.

I found this party paper stuffing at the Dollar Tree. 

Here is one of the stamp sets from Scrappy Mom's September stamp release. I was Guest Designer and still enjoy using both sets. You can still get your set today!

The striped ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM.

You're Spook-tacular Treat Bags

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today was another busy day...took my daughter to a different art festival (FAFO), so she could get some volunteer hours for one of her school clubs. While she was doing her good deed, I went shopping. I went to Michaels and found some AWESOME Halloween deals that I couldn't pass up...70% off plus my teacher discount. My students are going to be SUPER excited on Friday. We do not have any type of school-wide activity planned, but they will get a surprise treat bag when they leave for the day. 

After picking up my daughter I went right home and got my treat bags done! My students should be surprised and thrilled with the goodies. I had these spider cellophane bags left from last year and the twine came from Target's dollar bin. The tag was cut with the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge at 2 1/4".
Here are all the treats that filled the bags...pencils, erasers, notepads, pinballs, and miniature candy bars (The candy was on sale at CVS and I had two coupons I could use.).


I made 23 1/2 bags...I need to get some different candy for the last bag. I have a student that cannot eat chocolate, so I am going to get some Skittles and Starburst.

I sure do like this stamp! It is perfect for my students! I found the set at Michaels too...it is by Hampton Arts and it was on sale for $2.99 (and I used my teacher discount for these too...I love a good deal!)

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I did not get everything on my list accomplished, but it feels good to get a few items crossed off. Tomorrow is another day!

Happy Birthday

Hello Crafty Friends,

Found a little time this evening to craft after going to the McIntosh Art Festival earlier today. There were so many creative and talented vendors at this annual show. I found a snowman head for one of our doors and they personalized for free. While waiting to get our name added (it was a 2 hour wait...that is how busy the festival was), we went to lunch at Red Robin for a special treat...Yummm! Afterwards, we came home and I was looking forward to making a few cards.

Here is a birthday card using some masculine colors.

I used the following sketch from Inspired by Stamping, but the submission deadline already passed. I used a Stampin' Up stamp set that a friend gave to me after she cleaned out her closet. I sure do like this stamp! The jumbled letters look cool!

Here is a close-up of the sentiment as the focal point. I added a few pearls and then the twine bow on a coordinating button.

Hope you had time to craft today! I have a few more projects on my list that I hope to accomplish tomorrow.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Spooky, But Frightfully Cute at DoubleClick Skittles

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back for another DoubleClick Skittles Challenge.

The Challenge...Spooky
Use two of the following colors...orange, purple, green, or black

Here is my Design Team project...
I created a fun Halloween bottle that can hold long thin treats...Twizzlers or Pixie sticks will fit perfectly inside. I found the witch hazel bottle by Lori Whitlock at the Silhouette On-line store (#33327).

Lettuce colored skittles around the scalloped cap and green and orange crinkle ribbon decorate the neck of the bottle along with a white twine bow and black button. The sentiment from Craftin' Desert Divas is stamped in black.

I removed the  witch image that was part of the framed background with a monster from Little Scraps of Heaven. I think he is cute in a frightful way.
Other Challenges:

Hope you will join us at DoubleClick Skittles this week for our "Spooky Color" challenge. The other design team members have done a spooktacular job,  so be sure to check them out!

Think Pink at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome back for another Die Cuttin' Diva Challenge.

This Week's Challenge...Think Pink

My Design Team Project...
I made this wedding card for a friend at work a couple weeks ago. Love the soft pink and cream colors, lace, and heart charm.

Here are the wedding party cards I made to coordinate.

The cards were personalized for the flower girl, matron of honor, and bridesmaid. The flower girl was my favorite.
