9 months!

Sadly no, I am not pregnant!  But in 9 months it will be HALLOWEEN!  YAY!!!

I have been watching The Munsters all day with my DD today, she has giggled non stop!  She had never seen the episodes and today thanks to Netflix we found the episodes on instant play!  

So, since yesterday for my crop night I worked on Christmas and listened to Jewel... today we watched the Munsters and I worked on this past Halloween night pictures!

I used Pincone Press Halloween paper, and one from Prima... it is all at least three-two years old!  I really need to start plucking away at all my paper!  it's a ridiculous amount!  I hardly use it too since I am usually trying to move the papers I have in stock along with my stamps.  This weekend we have had tables, chairs, and ott lights set up in the living room.  Cricut, Slice, Spellbinders, and Sizzix in the kitchen.  Even the printer has been brought into the living room for journaling!  I have been scrapbooking!  Can you believe that!  I am so caught up in my next release (previews start Feb. 4th) that I have actually had prints ordered and started working on them instead of just throwing them in their photo boxes... YAY!!


Here are a few close up shots to show just a little bit of detail.


I love how the name tags turned out, just a little bit of twine, stamp from Inkadinkadoo, and a Raindrop from Cloud does anyone remember
Cloud 9?!  LOL

Well hope you enjoyed that.  This canvas is ready for my Halloween wall, which I should try to remember to take a picture of and share it here!  Maybe tomorrow, too much crafty time since Friday has be worn out!  BUT!  the crafty fun still continues tomorrow, as I mentioned I have set it all up for the whole weekend!  I plan on getting some stuff done!  Have a great rest of your weekend bloggy friends!

Blog Hop Release!

Whoohoo!!!  Welcome to Jude and the Rockers Playtime release Hop!  You have probably come over from Alison's blog, and your next stop will be Cyndi's blog!  Did you all like what you saw so far these past five days?  I sure hope so!  Today we have the last image, and it happens to be my absolute favorite!

Beep, Beep Jude!

I know I went really simple with all these cards, but I really like simple for kiddies!  I made the set for a relative.  She's a teacher and likes to give out cards sometimes.  I thought this set would be kinda cool for her to have and just give out randomly.  

I also have one of our newest Bettys... Scrapbooking Betty!  She will be released in rubber later this year with some more awesome Bettys!  Today if you purchase a full sheet she is yours as a digi free!  She will not be available for Digi purchase at all.

Ummm, I just wanna say that it is slightly askew cause my little guy wanted to help me craft this one.  He pasted the polka dot background down for me (when I wasn't looking) and well it was too late.  Ok? Ok!  LOL not my fault it is crocked!

Well I won't keep you too long, there is much to see from the awesome-ests DT gals!  Here is the complete list in case you stumbled upon here just for fun!

Starts at SBS blog
Ends at SBS again!

Happy Hopping!

I used to love playing Tea time with Rio... She had loads of fun tea sets.  Actually I myself collect them too!  I have 23 sets!  LOL of course one of my favorites is my Halloween set!  heh heh

Lilly is ready to serve up so me cake and tea won't you join her?

I am again, not sure which way I was going with the way I colored her hair, but I rather liked it!

I love this color combo!  Makes me think of Rainbow Sorbet!  I think I will go grab me some!

How about a little something to nosh on?

Tin Lunch pails, bologna sandwiches, an apple, and milk brings back memories of Elementary school!  I used to sit on a start rug just like this one that Lunch time Brittany is sitting on!

Very simple, but I loved the colors I chose!  She sure seems to be enjoying that lunch of hers!

Please join me tomorrow for day three of our previews!

Paper: Echo Park Little Girl Collection!

Chalkboard and Chalk...

Welcome back, I hope you enjoyed yesterday's peek!

Today we have Chalkboard Ali... deep in concentration, she is one sassy and cute little gal!

Again, I went for a simple and clean card.  I also thought it very cute and fast to leave the hair outlined only and not colored in.  I don't know why, but I just love that outlined look!

Come back tomorrow for day three, you will love it I promise!

One cutie pie...

My Heart a Flutter Christian is just a cutie pie!

Don't you agree?  I looove that heart!  Looks like he put his "heart" into it eh?  Ahhhh I crack myself up!  yeah I know corny, corny!  

Did I already tell ya how much I am loving the color scheme with these cuties?  
The paper matched perfectly too.  I am glad, cause that paper has been sitting starting me in the face for a long time, begging to be used.  I was used, and abused!

See ya tomorrow for the next cutie patootie!

A Heart for you Rio

Raven and Rio are the best of pals!   
Just look at how cute they are together!

I hope I am not giving anyone pink sickness!  I love Pink, I think everyone knows that... well I think you all know me more for loving Halloween, but the softer side of me looooves pink!  I think that is why these were so easy to whip up.  

Oh and before I forget, someone asked me if I was going to make this a kit with the release... yes it will be a rubber stamp, paper, and stickers pack!  Details will follow Friday with the release!

See ya tomorrow for more Steampunk Valentine Teens PINKNESS love!

Kitty Love London preview day 2

I hope you feel in love with Box of Chocolates Miller, but not too much as today we have Kitty Love London for you, and oh my is she beeee-autyful!

I am sorry about how sloppy I have been coloring these, but I kinda like the outcome.  I didn't take my time like I usually do, as I wanted to see them all done.  You know how it is when you have something in your head, and just can't wait to finish!  I have been anxious throughout all of these.  
I once again used the same color schemes, I am loving the black, white and pink!  The paper is again from Echo Park's Be collection Mine from last year. 

I hope you are enjoying this release so far!  I have so much fun stuff coming I can barely contain myself!

A New Year, a new image, and a new start!

Well hello there personal blog!  I have missed you so!  

It has been a while since I have posted here, I am always so busy busy with my business blog that I give this one little or no love at all!  Well that is going to change in this year!  I have many resolutions, and one of them is to scrap, stamp, and craft just for me, just for fun!  Of course doing my own images is fun, but I got to the point where I was starting to feel icky about my own stuff cause I wanted to do other stuff.... you know what I mean?

Okay, enough of that let's get onto the fun stuff!  Today I am previewing a brand spankin' new cutie!  

Box of Chocolates Miller, from our very first new line for 2012!  Wow can you believe how fast 2011 went!?  Box of Chocolates Miller is from our new line to be released Friday!  This line is called Teen Scene Steampunk Valentine.  I promise you will fall in LOVE with these cuties!  Betty, Christian, Rio, Lola, and London will follow in the days to come and they are ca-yute!

I was in a very black and white and pink mood, so I colored Miller in using 12 colors only (yeah I know ONLY huh, hee hee): 
N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, RV04, RV06, RV09

I just thought these colors appropriate for the theme, and yet not too girly for a masculine image.  Makes me think of way back when you could buy those special markers that you could color on your black and white pictures to add just a touch of color.  I think they were Zig pens, gosh I don't remember it was when Scrapbooking was making it's way into the crafting world and all kind of new fun stuff was being invented!  Not that they don't continue to invent fun stuff of course!

Oh and I am also entering this into the ColourQ challenge #117.  It was pure luck that they happen to be challenging peeps to use basic black and white and any one color!  I thought my card fit in perfectly!

I used papers from my stash, that I have been hoarding for a year as it is Echo Park Be Mine Collection, their 2011 Valentine line.  I just love the color combo on this paper.  Of course I love anything with black and pink in it no matter what, but this paper is really elegant and pretty.

I hope you like my Box of Chocolates Miller, he will be available in a kit along with the other five stamps and cards to come on Friday January 6th!  See you all tomorrow for preview day 2 of our new Teen Scene Valentine Steampunks!

Oh and please head on over to SBS blog to check out my DT gal's awesome, awesome projects with Box of Chocolates Miller!  They have really outdone themselves!
