Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt - Creative bug on the loose

It is time for a...

Hello and welcome to the first ever Trick or Treat Treasure Hunt brought to you by the team of Creative Bug Digitals.

This is stop # 2. It is 8:00 am and time to release the second clue.

If you missed the first stop, please go HERE and start from the beginning to ensure that you understand how to play along and get all the clues you will need to participate.

Clue #2

  1. Go the Creative Bug Digitals Store at
  2. Find the Halloween section. 
  3. Click on the third image in the first row across.  This will bring the image name up for you.
  4. What is the fourth letter in this image's name?  Take that letter and write it down.  This is your second of six letters.
__?___     __?___    _____     _____     _____     _____

You now have two of your blanks filled in.  Remember you will need to unscramble the word when you have finished collecting the five remaining letters.

To help you find the correct image in the store, I have created a project to showcase it...

But I can't give you the name... that would be cheating... even under torture I won't talk ;o)  Since I had a lot of Halloween cards done already I decided to use this sweet image as a tag for the goodie bag that I will be giving my little nephew, he's 1 1/2, so this couldn't be too scary.  I think I have achieved that.  I used some word art font that I downloaded to create the great name tag.  It's called bling ring and can be found here.

The bags are from the dollar store.  I have used my label 19 and large circle all from spellbinder. 
For the ghost I added some coloring with my copics and then went stickles crazy...  The sentiment is from Create with TLC

Stay tuned for the release of clue #3...

At 10:00 am, the third clue will be released over on Lisa 's Blog, Décosse's Dynamite Doodles

If you happen to get lost along the way you can find the complete line up below...

Digital Delight DT post - Spookily night

Hello everyone!  I'm here this time to share with you a different type of creation for my DT post over at Digital Delights.  I made a little goodie bag to put the stuff for 3 kids.  If you follow my blog you will remember me posting back at the beginning of September that one of my employee had lost her son in law to cancer!  Well he had 3 kids, and I figured that any of the upcoming festivities will be hard because their dad is not with them... so I wanted to bring them a little smile.

I gave it to my employee yesterday.  She's already gave it to her grandkids and they almost brought tears to my eyes... they passed a message that it was super nice and to give me a huge kiss and hug ;o)  I just hope they have a great Halloween... even if it's going to be different then usual... and probably kind of sad.  It really makes you realize what is important in life!  And to stop complaining about little things.

So I used the awesome Spookily night and paired it up with Spooky sayings sentiments set.

Wednesday, October 30, 2013


Hello everyone I wanted to share with you my desk over at WOYWW.  There's really nothing going on today... it's our Year end at work so I finished late.  So no time to play :(

Hope your day was more exciting than mine!!!

oh and if you are a follower of mine you should check out my candy here.  And if you are not a follower... why not? ;o)


Wheel Barrow- Outlaws

Hello everyone! I'm here today with a card I made for the progressive challenge over at Outlawz.  I'm using this time the fabulous image from Sandi Samples.  And it's a wheelbarrow.  It made me think of using it with some pumpkins... so I added some images from Scribbles Designs.  One of the ones that I have used is a freebie for our challenge right now that's Shades of orange so you should check it out if you haven't yet.

So I have printed the great wheelbarrow twice and fussy cut it out!!!

Ike's world challenge DT post - October 29 2013

Hello I'm here this time with another little bookmark but made Ike's world challenge blog.  My hubby was the only one without an Halloween bookmark so had to take care of that lol

Our challenge this time for you is Kritters!

And for this I used the great Dog ear 2 from the set Daft Dogz.

I decided to do what Ike does and I'm taking insiration from her... mind you it's not as great but it's a start.  So I transformed the sweet dog into a zombie that's got blog running down it's mouth.  I also printed the image twice to be able to pop up the snout.  I also added some glossy accent to the blood bwahahaha makes it look more real!!!

Couldn't have everyone from the team go sweet on you could I?!? ;o)

Tuesday Throwdown - Challenge # 171

Hello everyone!!! It's time for a new challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.  This time our challenge for you is Witch way to the candy... so either witch or candy.  But wizzards also fit since they are the equivalent of a witch!  Can't be sexist now can we?!?

Our awesome sponsor is

Stamp Fairy
For my little creation I used Tommy Wizard 2.  Just love this little guy!  He's really adorable.  I used him to create a little bookmark to put in the Halloween goodie bag.

Melonheadz challenge - Dress up/Halloween

It's time for a new challenge over at Melonheadz friends and this time our challenge for you is Dress up /Halloween.  It's just the perfect challenge for this time of year!

Well as I have mentioned... I have pretty much made all the Halloween cards that I needed... so I decided to make something a bit different.  And this was bookmarks for my kids to put in their goodie bag.

For this little creation I used Frankenstein bundle.  It's really sweet and was precolored.  So really great for a fast little Halloween make.

Tammy's Scrapin corner - Challenge # 86

Hello everyone!!!  This is my last post for Tammy scrapin corner so this is really an emotional one since Tammy was the very 1st person to give me my chance as a DT!!!  Thank you soooo much Tammy for your support for this past year 1/2!  The challenge will be taking a break and come back until the beginning of the new year.

So even if it wasn't my week to play with the team I decided to join in for this last challenge ;)  This time around it's anything goes!!!  So I'm sure there will be many of you to join in.

The great sponsors this time are
 and Our Wonderful Sponsors

For my card I played with Ice Cube snowman 4 from Skdigis.  I figured it was a great time to create a Christmas card and get ahead of the game.

You hoos

Hello!!!  So how was your day?!?  Mine was pretty busy... we went to the cegep (the equivalent of college) with my oldest son and I think he has found where he wants to go!!!  So now it will be a question of applying and hoping that he is accepted...

I didn't get much crafting time this weekend... so really needed to get my ass in gear when we got back.  And still managed to make a little extra... it's all the fault of Stamping Dragon's FB group

They had a little challenge to share what we had that was recycled from something else and that was now in our scraproom...  And well I showed beer bottle cap, some ribbon and a little bell from Lindor Easter chocolates and a little tag... but this didn't  stop there... they then asked that we create something with one of the items that we had showed... Well... I could have said no... but I'm always up for a good challenge!!!

So I went shopping (well... I'm always good for some shopping as well lol... I needed an image from them to do this challenge right?!?  yup right that's my excuse and I'm sticking by it!!!).  I found a fabulous precolored image called You Hoos Owl that was just perfect to make the Christmas card for my dad and Stepmom.  So Guylaine if you are reading this... please STOP!!!!

So here's my card.  I decided to make another twisted easel card this way I get to play again over at Scrapbook blessings.  This is the closed look

OSAAT - Challenge # 187

Hello everyone!!!  It's time for a new challenge over at OSAAT and this time our challenge for you is Boo - So Halloween or Halloween colors if you don't do Halloween ;o)  It's the perfect time of the year for this... as little monsters will be around on Thursday!!!

For my creation I had the chance to play with the fun image Fuzzbog Wumble from Alipeeps.  She really has an awesome set of little monsters perfect for this occasion... it was really hard to choose lol

Scribbles and Scrap challenge - DT card - Oct 27 2013

Hello everyone!!!  It's time for a new challenge over at Scribbles and scrap.  And wow for the past challenge you really have astounded us with all the fabulous entries!!!  So many and so beautiful.  I'm glad it's wasn't my turn to choose the top 3... that would be so very hard.

So for my card this time I'm using a fabulous 0034 Vintage girls photo topper sheet 2.  Wow there are 6 images on the sheet and the entire sheet is only £1.00!!!!  You can't go wrong.  Go and check out the store.  The greatest thing is if you enter the challenge with some Scribbles and scrap image you have a greater gift possible.  And with the great images available why wouldn't you?!?

So here's my little vintage creation.  I didn't put a sentiment this time around.  I figured I would leave it blank and this way could use it for any type of creation.

Boo! Did I scare you?!?

Ok maybe not... but it was worth a try!!!  So I'm here to share with you a little creation that I made to play with the fabulous challenge going on over at All dressed up.  They have a challenge for Halloween but you have to use one of their digis.  The fabulous news is that they have some really awesome Freebies!!!

I discovered them doing my DT rounds ;o)  So happy when I'm doing my commenting because not only do I discover some great new techniques, get inspiration but I also get to find new challenges and artists!!!

So I'm here to share with you a little creation that I made using their Boo did we scare you.  I'm making some bookmarks for my family for Halloween to add to their little goodie bag.  BTW do you remember when I mentioned that some of the bookmark seem to get lost or disappear... and that my kids are always looking for some new ones?!?  And that I had found a great way to use my craft to make some?!?  Well this morning I found one of the dogs chewing on one....  :s... I guess this is one of the reason there are none around.  Good thing I'm making more... now if my kids could just put the away in BOOKS!!!! ok finished my ranting... and now to get to my project.

Fresh Brewed design creation - October 25 2013

Hello everyone!!! It's time for a new post for Fresh Brewed designs showcasing one of the brand new digi Girl on the go.

I needed a B-day card for my SIL who is turning 40 on Sunday!!!  Wooohooo Julie Anne!  Happy b-day!!! ;o)  I know she reads my posts so will see this.  But since she got her card already it's ok.

And I really wanted to make one that was special.  So I decided to play with the newest challenge over at Scrapbook blessings which is to make a twisted easel card.  Since I had never made one I thought this was just perfect!!!

So I was braved and tried it out.  And well... when it's your 1st try there's always stuff that you don't anticipate... like making it the wrong side.  Oh well it looks great open... but it does open the wrong side up.  And I made it 6x6 instead of the measurements that were in the video... so that added a little bit of complexity.  But hey, I like a challenge.

The image was great for this card 'cause my SIL wanted a new pair of boots and I think those are are pretty awesome.

Vintage birds

Hello everyone!!!  TGIF!!! Hope you are as excited as I am that it's the weekend!!! woohooo.  This means some crafting time... and most of all that I don't have to be in my car by 7h10 in the morning... yikes... really hard the morning commute to work now...

Anyway I'm here tonight to share some cards that I made for my DT of Nicecrane designs with a great set called Vintage birds greating cards.  You get 10 images for only 4.5$.  A totally fabulous deal don't you think?!?

In thinking of my Christmas gifts for the teachers... I made another set of little cards.  This time with a real vintage feel.   The paper is from K& Cie - SW nature.  I thought it was perfect for this.  I added some doilies from my stash, a little ribbon and button as well.  The card base was purchased at the dollar store at 6 cards/1$.  So this makes I think a great gift that's not too expensive... because all the paper that I used on the cards was taken from 1 sheet of 12x12.  And all the cards are different and unique.
 Some of the images fit Christmas like this one with the mistletoe
 This one as well is Christmas as well with the snow and the mistletoe

So what do you think?!?  Will this make a good gift?!?  I thought they could use them to send little thank you notes to people as well since some of these have images that fit Christmas with the snow and mistletoe.

If you don't know Nicecrane designs you are really missing out!!!

I'm entering these in the following challenges:

  1. Jingle belles rock - Not a creature was stirring - use a creature
  2. Scrapping 4 fun challenges - Holiday or Christmas cards
  3. My heartpieces digitalstamp challenge - Anything Christmas
  4. Craft-room challenge - Our feathered friends
  5. Deep ocean challenge blog - Button it up
  6. Ooh-la-la-creations challenges - Things with wings
That's it for now.  Hope you have a great night!!!


Thursday, October 24, 2013


I'm back with a fun Halloween creation!  I told you I was all Halloween carded out... well that is pushing me to do some other types of creations.  And this time I'm sharing with you a little tag that I made specially to go on my niece's goodie bag.

I have joined a super fun group on FB called the Stamping Dragon Designs.  It's the group for the great images from Dragons lair designs.  Such cuuuuute stamps.  They have challenges and some fun stuff.  And one of the challenges is to make something with this great image from them called Monsters.

So I decided to do some paper piecing and printed the image twice to be able to pop the eye out as well!

Gertie goose

Hello!  Hope you had a great Thursday!  Mine was ok.  It's done and we are now closer to the weekend. ;o)

Digital delights - Halloween Accessories set

Hello everyone!  I'm back this time for my DT card for the great Digital Delights and this time I'm using a great little accessories set.  You could be using this for a background... but I decided to use it as the main focus because I just looooove this little digi.

WOYWW - Oct 23 2013

Hello everyone.  How was your day today?  Mine was so so... And I didn't do much crafting tonight... I was way too tired lol

I'm here to share what's on my workdesk this Wednesday over at WOYWW and it's not much... just an image from Scribbles by Sandy for the midway point of our challenge that's Shades of orange there's still lots of time to enter!!! And I'm preparing well... I finished coloring the image for the card... just need to think of the card now lol

And Ike my mess is not all pushed to the back... those are bins attached on a pole.  Meant to be this way I swear!!!  Maybe not that filled up.. but still.  So to me I'm still impressed that it's not more of a mess after a full week of crafting!!!  The Tim Holtz scissors have been borrowed from my local craft store until they get my order ;o)  This way I can cut the great stamps I got from Smudged inks!!!
Hope you had some crafty time and looking forward to seeing your space.

Fortune Teller Bettty

I'm back and I'm going from Christmas (in my last post) back to Halloween ;o)  As I have stated in a earlier post this week I'm a bit tired of making Halloween cards ( I love doing them... but I've made a ton!!!  and already mailed them all out... so if I make more they just accumulate).  So I figured I could make some little bookmarks for my kids and put them in their Halloween bags ;o)

So I'm here to share the 1st of 4!  Actually still have to do the 4th lol.  But I already have an idea for an upcoming DT work so that will take care of that last one.

So this time I used my great image from Simply Betty called Fortune Teller Betty.  It was one of the 2 images that was given to the FB group to play with.  If you played with the fortune Teller you had to add some jewels and some glaze. I added some glossy accent to my fortune teller ball.  So here's my bookmark

Vintage Christmas decorations - Nicecrane design

Hello everyone!!!  I'm back to share some more decorations that I made with the great sheets from Nicecrane designs if you click on the link you will reach the great sheet of digis.  It's called Vintage Christmas ball by Bowyle

Christmas Ball by Bowyle (Pyramid Style)

So here's a closer look at them.  So fun that it's my pictures that are the preview ;o).  I have printed the sheet twice.  This way I get to do both sides of the ball with the same image.  But you could do a ball with both designs instead.  I'm thinking that these will be used as embellishments to my Christmas presents instead of being put on my tree.  This way it's another little homemade gift included and they can be put on someone's tree to remind them of us!!! 

Bit by the Bug Tuesday: Petrified Pumpkin

Hello everyone!  It is time for another Bit By the Bug Tuesday and that means that it is time to introduce you all to the newest freebie over at Creative Bug on the Loose.  This week we have...

Little scary bags

Hello everyone!!! Did you have a good day?!?  Mine was really busy... I'm now in my new office.  And I was really excited this morning... only took 1h to get into work... compared to the 1h30 that it took last time I had gone to visit the building...

So I'm here tonight to share with you some little goodies bags that I made with the great set that Paulette is giving to people that make purchases this week over at Create with TLC.

I'm all card out of Halloween lol.  I have made so many... so I was looking for another fun way to use these!  And it happens that I have 4 kids!  So I decided to make little personalized goodie bags for them.  I will have some other projects to share that will be going into those little bags ;o)

Oh and don't forget to also play in the Show-it-off-sunday!!!!  You have the chance to win a great set!

I used some great sentiments from Create with TLC.

So here are the bags.  I used some font called Bling Ring that you can find here.  I wanted to make a little personalize tag for each!!!

Path of Positivity challenge #7 - Hope - Midpoint

Hello, I'm here to share with you my journal pages made for the midway point over at Path of positivity challenge.  This time our challenge is HOPE and I thought this time it was a great opportunity to use Hope for the fight the Breast Cancer!!!

I used one of our sponsors image which is Angel Bug from

Christmas winter scenes

Hello everyone!  So did you have a crafty day?!?  Mine was spent doing some food that turned up really delicious and some craft as well as a bit of blogging ;o)  I'm here to share with you some really exciting news and some little crafty gift.

I had made some cute little Christmas baubles that you can see here and after showing them to the designer of Nicecrane I had an amazing offer that took me about 2 seconds to analyse... and then I said yes!  He asked me if I would like to be on his team!!!   If you go and check out the store you will realize why I could not say no!!!

I'm trying to get ahead of the game... and make some Christmas gifts for the teachers as well as the educator for my son that's in 5th grade.  I will also have to make some for others but right now that's my main concern.  I think that homemade gift are so much nicer than the store bought... especially since they get a lot that's the same... and they end up not knowing what to do with them.  So I thought a nice little set of cards to give would be a good idea.  I plan on giving it to them in mid-December instead of the last day of class... so that they get to use them.

I warn you this post will be heavy with some pictures ;o)

Here's the great set of digis that I used it's called Christmas Winter scenes :

Here are the cards that I made with them: (press read more to see all the pictures)
