Paper Craft Crew Challenge #8

I love Halloween.  I guess you are figuring that out from the recent cards I have been posting.  It used to be my favorite holiday besides Christmas.  I would decorate my house from top to bottom with spider webs, witches, ghosts, etc.  Now that it is just Sonny and I, I don't bother with it much anymore.  I'll put up a few decorations and find my Halloween garden flag but that will probably be it.  But I can make some great Halloween cards (wait till you see my eyeballs card!)

This card for the Paper Craft Crew (#8 already!) was made using My Digital Studio.  The pumpkin comes from the Storytime Kit that I used to make Jayce's ABC book.

Here are the supplies used to make this card with MDS2:

Embellishments: Designer Kits\Storytime - embellishments\Storytime - jack-o-lantern

Only 26 Letters!

Good Morning!  I wanted to share a few more pictures from my Storybook ABC album I made with My Digital Studio.  Jayce should have received it by now and I hope he is enjoying it.  I had so much fun making it.    You'll notice on some of the alphabet letters, I had to stretch to come up with a word to fit the pictures I had (like N & Q!!)  But some of the letters, I could have filled the page with words.  Speaking of the alphabet, I had a funny thing happen last week.  When I was in Charlotte, I stopped for lunch at a cafe and had a book with me.  Whenever I go out to lunch by myself, I always take my book so I can read while eating or waiting on my meal.  Actually I had forgotten to take my book that day and stopped off at a store in the shopping center to buy one.  Anyway there were two older ladies sitting a table near me.  As they were leaving, they stopped by my table and asked me what I was reading.  One of the ladies commented, "Don't you think it is amazing there are only 26 letters in the alphabet?"  I thought that was kind of odd but the more I've thought about it, she is right.  Think of all the millions of books that have been written and only using 26 letters over and over!

It's that time ,,, Paper Craft Challenge Wednesday and today is our FIRST ANNIVERSARY!!  For my digital card this week, I used a really cute Digital Kit called Storytime.  I just love it!  Yesterday was my grandson's birthday - hard to believe he's 6, just started 1st grade and I haven't seen him in 4 1/2 years!!  I called him last night to wish him a Happy Birthday and he sounded so grown up.   I made him an Alphabet Board Book using Storytime.  The book was so fun to make.  I made it all about his dad, including pictures when his dad was a kid.  Since we have such a disjointed relationship, Jayce hasn't grown up seeing the pictures of his dad as a child or hearing the stories I could tell him so I thought this was a great way to share that history.  Oh, the memories making this book brought to me.

The kit comes with the "A is for art, B is for Boat" etc, and I just added other alphabet words as the pictures dictated.  I had it printed by Stampin' Up and they did a wonderful job.  Now is the time to get your things printed by SU since they are having a 31% off sale!  Think about those Christmas presents!!

Please make sure you check all the other cards made for this challenge HERE .  We want moreparticipation and ask that you please pass  the word around by sharing on your Facebook page, Pinterest, Twitter and anywhere else you can think of to share and get the word out about the Paper Craft Crew challenges!  Each time you participate "adds up" and may earn you an invitation to be a guest designer for a future challenge!  You can also sign up for e-mail updates.   As the new Challenge Blog develops, there will be new challenges, blog candy and more.  There will be a "Grand Kick-Off" for the new blog the end of October.  You can also find us on Facebook HERE.

Stamp Queens Sketch

Today is the Stamping Queens Sketch Challenge.  Here is today's sketch:

I did my card with My Digital Studio and it was super easy using punches.  I filled the three circle punches with DSP from the Storytime Kit.  The background paper is also from the Storytime Kit as is the Owl image and the rulers.

I love this kit.  I'm making a special book for my grandson for his birthday with this kit.  I'll be sharing it with you next month when I finish it.

This is the last month that Cristena will be heading up our Stamping Queens team.  I'm not sure what changes will be made to the program but one of our NC gals is taking over the team, Pam Staples.  She's a great SU demonstrator and very creative so I'm sure she has some good ideas for the team.
