Happy Halloween...Take THREE!!!

Hello stampers!!! I hope you are having a great day! It has been a very busy week, playing catch up from being sick for a week, trying to get everything ready for Halloween, and working on stamping goodies!!! They say that "the THIRD time is a charm".... and for this project, "they" are right!!!! This is my THIRD candy goodie for my daughter's class Halloween party!!! I made two goodies for them using the Sweet Centers and Sweet Treats Cups, and I loved how they looked! HOWEVER, it just dawned on me (2 days ago!!) that I can't give candy that isn't packaged commercially!!! After all, isn't that what we teach our kids...not to eat candy that is open and from strangers!!!! So.....I went back to the drawing board, and without a lot of time!!!!! I pulled out some retired designer Halloween paper and retired Tangerine Tango cardstock, folded it "tent style" and then used the retired Yummy stamp set and made a candy tent! I stapled the candy inside and had my daughter sign each "card" and wa-lah!!!! SUPER easy and SUPER quick!!! After all, it was my THIRD attempt!!! That's what I get for getting things done early! I should know better! ;o) Anyways, I'm happy with how they turned out and Elle had a great time helping make them! Now....what do I do with ALL of those adorable Sweet Treat Cup Cards!?!?!? ;o)
by the way...How cute is her little handwriting!?! ;o)

I was also busy making Ghost Cake pops for her party! These cake pops have become my daughter's favorite dessert, and she can help me make them so that is always a plus~ this time we made the cake pops into ghosts! I think they turned out cute and, more importantly, they were yummy!!! ;o) A BIG hit with the kids and an even BIGGER hit with the teachers!

Speaking of teachers, as I have posted before, I made the Frankenstein and Mrs. Frankenstein boxes for all the teachers in her school (I told you I've been busy!!!!) Elle was SUPER excited to hand these out to each of them~ so cute! They loved them!

As you can tell, my family LOVES Halloween!!! We tend to go a little over board with it, but it is all worth the last few sleepless nights! I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend, no matter how you spend it!!! I'll be back on Monday with some Fall / Thanksgiving goodies!!!

Thanks for looking!

Happy Fall??

Hi stampers! I hope you are having a great day! We are a little under the weather at our everyone else in our area (or so it seems!!!) my daughter has the Swine Flu and I haven't been able to get rid of this horrible cough for 3 weeks!!! So we have been hanging out in the house for the past few days, trying to get healthy!!! I think we are on our way to being on the mend....but it has been a LONG week!!!! So, I have been planning my upcoming Stampin' Up! party at Laura's house (hi Laura!) She wanted to do some Fall/Thanksgiving cards, so I got out my Fall colors and went to work! I have been in "Halloween mode" lately so it was nice to work with these pretty colors! I just LOVE the gorgeous Fall colors while driving around Northern VA this time of year....I wait all year for it! So...that was my goal, since I am stuck inside, I wanted to bring those colors to the card! I used Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie in this card. I started out with the Old Olive in the center of the medallion, but then (accidentally) I Made another one and forgot to add the center!!!! BUT, I kind of liked that card I cannot decide which one I like best; with the green center or without?!?!?! PLEASE, LET ME KNOW WHICH ONE YOU LIKE THE BEST!!!! JUST LEAVE A COMMENT ON THIS POST WITH YOUR VOTE! I love the Medallion stamp, I think it is SO versatile! I used a retired stamp set "Tiny Talk" for the "give thanks" verse...I cannot believe this is the ONLY stamp I have for thanksgiving!!! Time to go shopping!!! ;o) I also used the Color Spritzer Tool with the Chocolate Chip Marker...I love how easy this tool is and how it adds just enough to give it the finishing touch to the card!

I also wanted to just share this sweet just amazes me how dogs seem to know when you aren't feeling good....our dog Marley hasn't left my daughter's side since she has gotten sick...I thought this was so sweet with her arm around him!! This is them snuggling on the couch! Too cute!

I hope you have a HEALTHY and fabulous day! Thanks for looking!

I love Fall!

Hi stampers! Well, I have been super busy lately working and stamping, and this weekend I didn't do either!!!! I had a wonderful, family filled weekend of Fall fun and relaxing! It was FABULOUS! My hubby, daughter and I went Apple picking on Sunday and had so much fun! This is one of our favorite things to do in the Fall...Elle LOVES it and talks about it all year long! Looking at these pictures really made me realize how big she is getting and what a difference a year makes!! (click on the pictures to see them larger)

This was apple picking last year!
And this year! So grown up!!!

I hope you and your family are enjoying the Fall and I will be back tomorrow with some stamping stuff! Happy Columbus Day!

A little while back, I posted this adorable card that was all the rage last year!

Take Two!

hi there Stampers!

I posted a few posts ago the cute yet very simple Sweet Centers card I made for my daughter's Halloween Party. Well, after looking at fellow bloggers projects, I decided to make it easier for the little kiddo's to get into the yummy candy! I originally made an "X" on the back of the card, with a utility knife, so they could peel back the "X" and get out the M&M's, without ruining the card. Then I came across this blog (Love her and this great tutorial!!!) and learned a new, fun and EASIER way to enjoy the candy....and not ruin the card! I also like this technique because you can easily refill the candy and use it again!!!! ;o) All you do is slide out the little black tab and the candy comes out of the back!! Ta-Da!!!! I LOVE THESE SWEET CENTERS!!!!!!!!!!! I think that these little cards will be a big hit with the kids AND their grown ups!!!

Let me know what you think!!! Thanks for looking~

An oldie but goodie!!!

Good morning stampers! I know I know......WOW I am on a roll with posts!!! Hopefully I will keep up this momentum! I was looking through my huge basket of card samples last night when I came upon this card and it made me smile!! These cards were very popular last year, but it made me happy when I saw it so I figured I would bring it back in hopes of it making YOU smile!! How cute is this card?!?!
I have finally decided on the cards we will be making at the Christmas Card Extravaganza Class and am placing my order TODAY so that I can't change my mind (again!)!

Hope you have a FABULOUS day today! It is a dreary day outside here in VA...a perfect day for stamping!!! Thanks for looking!

A serious case of "CASEing"

Hello Stampers!!
Many times at my Stampin' Up! Workshops and Stamp Camps, I, like most demonstrators, get asked "how do you come up with these ideas for cards and projects?" and I can honestly say, that most of the time.....I DON'T!!!!!! Not completely at least! That is what is so great about being a stamper.... you don't have to be some creative genius (although many of you are!) you just have to be able to CASE (Copy And Share Everything!) I am a "pro" at CASEing! I am always checking out blogs, participating in swaps, and drooling over other stampers creations! Most of the time, I take those ideas and use them to spark something creative within my own mind and make the creation my own...however, sometimes I see something that I fall in love with and copy it exactly! (giving them ALL the credit of course!!!!) This week, as I am continuing to plan for my Christmas Card Extravaganza Class, I have found SEVERAL cards that I have fallen in love with and haven't wanted to change a thing!!!! You all out there in blog land are so creative!!! Below are some of the cards that I have either completely CASEd, or have tweaked just a little bit to make it my own. We will (probably) be making these at the class. Just when I think that I have come up with all the projects , I find another card that I love and just HAVE to make! ;o) I think I need to stop the madness and stop browsing the web!!! (NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!) So, THANK YOU FELLOW STAMPERS, for all of your creativity!!! Hopefully, one day, I will make something that will inspire you! ;o)

This is a FABULOUS card from Renae Wilson. I don't know her, but I LOVE her work and I LOVE LOVE LOVE this card!!! This card reminded me of this birdie card I made, I think it's the same type of fold. So anyways, I CASEd it exactly, and then I made some changes so that it would be more cost effective for my class! Here is the EXACT thing,

and here it is the very minor change that I made. I just used Old Olive Cardstock in the background so that I could make the beautiful Merry Moments designer paper last further.
My customers that attend the class can choose whether they would like to make "regular" cards or picture front cards. I decided to make a couple of changes to this card so that it could be used as a picture card as well! I think this style of card looks GREAT with a wallet size photo!!!

Then I cam across this card and FELL IN LOVE!!! I had already ordered the Christmas Cocoa Specialty designer paper from the Mini Catty but couldn't bring myself to actually USE the gorgeous red and white flocked paper!!! It's too pretty to use I thought! Then I saw this card from Linda Walsh and had to make it!!! I basically copied it exactly except for I didn't use the ticket punch corner, used a different greeting, off-centered it and I added a bow to the red ribbon!

I hope you are having a great day and I hope to hear from you soon!!! I have THREE spaces left for the Christmas Card contact me SOON to save your spot!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet treats and gifts

Hi stampers!

WOW...I know.....2 posts in less than a week!!!!!! I told you things were going to get back to "normal" around here!!!! ;o) I thought that since I have been such a bad blogger lately, I would share TWO projects that I have been working on!!

When I got the Holiday Mini catalog, the first thing I HAD TO HAVE was the Sweet Centers stamp set and the Sweet Treat Cups!!!! HOW ADORABLE ARE THESE!?!?! I was instantly imagining bringing these little goodies to my daughter's preschool for parties!!! It's only Sept 11th and I have already made her class treats for Halloween!!! They are sooooooo easy and sooooooo stinkin' cute!!! I'm sure you have seen them all over the web already but here are the ones I made! I decided to not make them into "lollipops" this time...I will wait and do that for Valentine's Day! (yes, I've already planned them out in my head!!) I chose to make them into little cards. Anyways, hope you like them!! Contact me to get your very own adorable stamp set!!!

While I was doing my weekly browsing and idea searching of the very creative stampers out in blog land, I saw this very creative and fabulous idea for a gift card holder!! I loved it!! I got out my handy dandy Big Shot and made one right away!!!! Unfortunately, I was so excited that I completely forgot to write down the blog I found it on....I have searched through my "History" and still cannot find it, however I will continue to look and will update it when I find it! I only penciled down the sketch....but if this is your sketch, please; let me know!!! Mine is much more "plain and simple" than hers, but I was just so excited that I wanted to get it completed quickly!!! But I am happy with how it turned out and I will be playing around with it and adding more embellishments when I have more time!!! I used retired SU! designer paper and cardstock. ****UPDATED on Wed, Spet 16***I found the wonderful sample that I CASEd! Check it out here!!!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and thanks for looking!!!

Hello stampers! Finally...I am making good on my promise to share Elle's birthday invitations! Sorry it took me so long.....we had everything packed and ready to go to my friends wedding last weekend...and then I woke up at 1 am on the morning we were to drive 6 hours with the flu!!!! Yup, I was up every hour getting sick and had to miss the wedding we had been looking forward to for a year!!!!! I am still soooooo bummed about it!!!!! But, I am feeling much better now, have used Lysol on the entire house and am now stamping up a storm!!!

Elle has decided that she wants to have her party at the local water we are praying for NO RAIN!!!!!!! It should be a lot of fun because this is the first year she has a say in who she wants to invite....since she is in preschool now and actually has her "own" friends! ;o)

After trying really hard to come up with a "splish splash" themed invitation....I decided I was not a fan of any of my ideas and so I went with a much more simplistic "theme" and used my beloved "Simple Birthday Thanks" cupcake set! (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this stamp!?!?!) I just wasn't "feeling" any of my water ideas! When you open the invitation up, there is a pocket where the guests will find more info about the party and the location. I did a similar style invitation for a friends wedding last year and I love the idea! Hope you enjoy it! I think it is a fun invitation...and Elle loves it! She thinks I'm "AMAZING" (her words...not mine!) so I guess that is what matters! Although I would love to hear your ideas and comments!!!

ALSO, I have only 3 more spaces for my new catalog stamp camp on Sunday, July 26th!!!! Contact me to book your space or to find out more information!!!

I hope you have a FABULOUS Wednesday!!!! Thanks for looking!!
