Thank you FISKARS for giving me the opportunity to name this product!! Yep, that’s the name I thought up and submitted for this squeeze punch…..lol. 🙂 How cool that they allow us Fiskateers to contribute in this way!!

…just two to be exact…lol.

This first one uses Fiskars new scalloped oval squeeze punch and the star squeeze punch…the owl is my own printed image from my FunkaLicious album class….I use him alot…lol. I believe the woodgrain stamp is by All Night Media?, got it at M’s with a 50% off coupon!

This next card was sent to Fiskars to  wish them a very Merry Christmas and to thank them for all they do for the crafting community, it uses several Fiskars products ie: the frames template, scallop scissors and the scallop oval squeeze punch.

Here is a Halloween layout using mostly Li’l Davis Halloween supplies but the stamps in the upper left  (spiders) are from Heidi Grace’s new Halloween line…..too cute!!!!!! The word BOO is also from heidi Grace but I covered that with crackle paint so that the color would match!
This is my youngest, and last, trick or treater….boohoo!!! 😦 Two more years and she will be finished with that aspect of Halloween! She thought up this costume and idea all by herself, I just helped her put it together after she told me what she wanted…lol.

Haven’t had too much crafting time in the last few weeks but managed to get these things done. The card uses a Fiskars Embossing Template (Seasons) as well as Fiskars Pigment Ink (Fresh Squeezed) and scalloped scissors. The lantern was coated on the inside with alcohol inks and stamped on the outside using Heidi Grace’s halloween stamps, the images were colored in with a paint pen. For the layout I used MAMBI pp……sorry for the flash on the layout!!


Guess what I found tonight at the Real Canadian Super Store? These pink scissors below!! I now have the Fiskateer ones with my number on them (green and orange), these pink Breast Cancer Awareness ones and these black Lucky Skull ones (thanks for those May!!) :…….Fiskars makes the best crafting scissors and a girl can NOT have too many…lol!

What a busy day I have going on today!! I am teaching a class at BC’s crop 4 kids tomorrow in Abby so need to get and keep my ducks in a row for that…am also designing a card kit so need to keep that in the back of my mind for the moment, will also be involved in a super secret project very soon too so need to get some ideas rolling around in my head for that….(if my head explodes over the next few weeks you will know why…..lol)!!!!! I just hope life doesn’t throw me any curve balls in the next month!!!!!
On another note I have named another Fiskars product ….yeah!!!! The first was a stamp set called Flip n’ FLop, the second was a blue ink pad called Blue RIbbon Winner and now the third thing is a brand new squeeze punch they have coming out, it will be called “Getting Antsy”….you guessed it, it’s an ant…..LOL! 🙂 Love all their squeeze punches so this one will be no exception!! Can’t wait to get my sweaty little (big) crafty hands on that one and the scalloped circles… and the scalloped squares!! 🙂
My daughters birthday last weekend was a huge success….they had a “crafty” party! I gave them all little note books, scissors and gluesticks….dragged out a whole bin of my scraps, a few punches, couple lengths of ribbon and a box of dollar store stickers I’ve been wanting to pare down….well they certainly helped with that…..lol!!!! I think they used half the box….LMAO!! But it was all good and they had a blast….kept them busy for over an hour and a half….lol!!

And here’s a layout and card from yesterday…managed to squeak these out amidst all the craziness… 🙂
