Hi. If you are curious about how you can be included the fun at our monthly club night, just ask join our Facebook group “Crafting with Amanda VIP Group” I can then connect with you and share more information. We are currently a smaller group, but active and fun and supportive.
I found this cute, new to me, folding card and thought this would be perfect for our group! It can power through scraps and yet deliver a big greeting! It fits in a standard A2 envelope. (5 3/4 x 4 1/2)
It’s really a simple card. You can print the instructions and follow those, or I walk you through the steps in this video.
I had a big pile of scraps left from my Christmas cards and started creating some cards from the pieces. At first I did a few and then decided I needed some flowers for embellishing. So I cut 20 flowers in blue belle, sapphire and whites daisy. I used my cricut to fussy cut the flower from the old Chelsea Gardens stamp. (C1709) Then to finalize the flowers I stamped them with embossing ink and heat embossed them with gold powder.
So now that I had a bowl of flowers I could dive into creating some cards.
The branches and gold leaves are all from the leftovers too. If you like watching process videos, here’s mine from these cards.
We will not have trick-or-treating or any of our traditional Halloween evening activities. Instead, I will plan a fun ghoulish supper followed by an evening of board games.
Leading up to the 31st, we should be able to partake of some of the normal fall activities. Pumpkin carving, picking out candy for the candy bowl and, if we are lucky and the home improvement projects are finished, putting up a few decorations around the house.
I used the Cricut to fussy cut the images from the Got Candy (CC8204) stamp set, the title and created the pumpkin for some shaped journaling strips. The background in the green and white is also from the Cricut image set Artbooking along with the photo mats.
In anticipation of our Halloween celebration in 2020, I created this “A COVID Halloween” layout using some of the Got Candy collection. I took my inspiration from this sketch.
I’m looking forward to starting another layout and I only wish I had my photos, but soon enough I will be dreaming of more time at my craft table and less time unpacking boxing and trying to find homes for all of our things.
Through the end of October, or while supplies last, CTMH is offering a collection of Halloween papers & embellishments called Got Candy.
It’s easy to see this paper for some Halloween cards or layouts, but it easily lends itself to other jolly occasions. I have some photos when friends visited and we went to California Adventure that I think will look great on this paper!
I love the stamp set that goes with this kit. It makes me happy and reminds me of happy days.
