Paper Crafts and Sweet Morsels from life.

One in a Minion


I recently learned that my dear Mother-in-Law loves the Minions.  So, this just had to be done.  Happy Birthday to you!  I am glad we share our youthful love of whimsical things!! This minion’s name is Dave.


Here is the inside and the back.  I used a Minion language translator website for these. .  Just do a web search for minions translator.  The minion eyeballs on the site follow your mouse – really cute!


The sentiment.


The last word – on the back!

Halloween Scene


Halloween is coming!   I love all the candy and cute kidlets in costumes and candy and well, the CANDY! I could do without all the scary movie commercials though! :).  I decided it was time to create a few fun cards for my Halloween loving friends 🙂  The card set was a labor of love because I rarely make multiples.  I used the Misti when I could, but these cards included lots of masking, layers of stamping, and Copic coloring!  This is the cutest one of the set, I think!



Products used:

  • Stamps:  Lawn Fawn Sets: “Let’s Celebrate”& “Sweater Weather”; Pumpkin – Hot Off the Press
  • Markers:  Copic
  • Cardstock – Lawn Fawn – Let’s Polka in the Dark Petite paper pack
  • Inks:  Stampin’ Up





Wow…look at all these cobwebs around here!  I wish I could say it was because Halloween is coming – but really, I’ve just been posting my cards more on Instagram lately.  I tend to make more cards in the colder months – when I’m stuck inside – so card season is coming up here really quickly!! 🙂

I made this card for our niece – her 12th birthday is today!  She recently got to experience the joy of reading the Harry Potter books…so I just couldn’t resist buying this digi from Bugaboo Stamps!  I bought another of the set – and there are so many others that I just love!!
