Book Selected for November Book Club Meeting

Thanks to all of you who attended the first meeting of the Book Worms Meet Pages' Peeps Book Club.  We had fun working on individual projects, discussing favorite books, and eating pizza and delicious pumpkin cheesecake Oreos.

The next meeting will be Wednesday November 28 from 6-9pm and the book selected for discussion is "The Casual Vacancy" by JK Rowling.  Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter series and this is her first novel for adults.

Hope you can find time to read the book and join us on November 28.  Please bring a list of books you'd like to suggest for the reading list.  Future meetings will be held on the last Wednesday of the month beginning on January 30, 2013.  $10 for dinner and a ticket for a raffle prize drawing.  RSVP to Pages.

Halloween Layout

Howdy Peeps!

Welcome back! Today I have my last project for the week. In addition to the cards, I also made this layout using the "Black Widow" collection by We R Memory Keepers.

The picture in this layout has special meaning to me. It was taken at a Trunk-or-Treat event held at the school I was working at the time. These two little girls really thought I was Sonw White. They asked their mom, "How did she get here from Disneyland? Doesn't she have to go back?" They were SO excited to get to meet a "real" princess that it really touched my heart.

I had some leftover hexagons from the card I shared earlier this week so I featured some on this layout. The doily was punched from the mini Lucky 8 punch sold at Pages. I used a small corner that is hidden behind the layering on a different card that I shared yesterday! No wasted paper in this craft room!

Thanks for checking out my projects this week! As always, they are on display at Pages From the Heart.

Witchy Halloween Cards

Hello Peeps!

Becky again with two more Halloween cards using the "Black Widow" collection by We R Memory Keepers. This line is now in stock at Pages From the Heart.

Coming up with a sentiment with the word "witchy" in it was a little tricky but I think "Witchy Wishes" works well! The spider and sentiment are both a part of the "Witchy" stamp set. I embossed both of them with clear embossing powder for a different effect. 

The witches hat came from the same "Witchy" stamp set I used in the previous card. I added orange Stickles in between the stripes because one can never have enough sparkle! The doily was cut using the new mini Lucky 8 punch by We R. These are in stock at the store and very easy to use!

I'll be back later this week with a Halloween layout with a sweet story. Thanks for reading!

Spooky Halloween Cards

Hi there Peeps!

Becky here and this week I will be sharing some Halloween projects I have been working on. This month I worked with the new "Black Widow" collection by We R Memory Keepers. It is now in stock at Pages From the Heart so come on in and check it out!

Today I have two cards that I made.

This card is a homage to one of my favorite movies ever, "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." I have watched this movie every Halloween for as far back as I can remember. I used a hexagon punch to punch out the shapes (although this would work well with any small, repeating shape). I pieced the pumpkin together by cutting three ovals and popping the middle oval up with foam squares. The orange letters are a new item at Pages From the Heart from Doodlebug.

For the second card, I used one of the large tags that are a part of the collection along with some scalloped squares. I used the Sew Ribbon tool by We R to add some sparkly ribbon. This tool can be found in the store.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow more!
