Finally, as promised, here is a link to the entire Memory Works 2012 Fall Catalog

Tonight we went out looking for pop up canopies. My spot at the Fall Fair spot is outside, so I'll need some cover. Finally settled on a 10 x 8 Quest easy set up model. We truly hope it is easy. The man wants to do a trial run in the yard. I'm just glad that detail is settled so I can focus on the crafts.

New Memory Works catalog is out!

This past Thursday I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in a card party for Operation Write Home at a local scrapbook store Captured Moments  I was a busy bee and spent a few hours socializing and making cards for this worthy cause.

Festive Dessert Topper!

I was inspired by a friend on who recently made a cute cake topper. I decided to try my hand at one, since I've got some fall entertaining in the very near future.

I ended up doing a fan shape, rather than a full circle, because my paper was on the thicker side and didn't want to flex very much. Since I was going for an autumn theme, I used some old favorites from my stash. The fan is made from Cosmo Cricket's Gretal collection, while the circle portion is from the Daisy D (oh how I miss them!) Heirloom Attic collection. Inkadoo stamps, Hero alphabet stamps, Close to My Heart inks. Added some gold curling ribbon and misc snippet of ribbon (Cosmo Cricket?) to the skewer.

Here it is displayed on a lovely baby apple crisp (recipe from the Small Batch Baking cookbook) that I made for dessert. My scrapping bud is coming over this afternoon for Scrappy Saturday, and who better to appreciate my efforts that a fellow scrapper?! Have a scrappy weekend!

Alter a folder

I decided to alter a folder to hold some stationary
I made for one of my sisters. This will be a Christmas gift.

The first thing I did was remove those little dimples from the Fancy Pants floral bracket (Kraft Kuts) paper that I decided to use. Hate those dimples...

Then I got out several small critter stamps and some ink. I stamped around the floral border
 and also into the "sky". 

With the help of my trusty Sharpies, I added some doodling and attached the whole thing to the folder with liquid adhesive. Voila! Fun with kraft paper!
