Holiday Mini Card Sample, & more...

The new Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog is "awsome"!!! There are amazing new stamp sets, die cuts, embossing folders, designer papers, embelishments, ribbons, & so much more...

Here is my 1st sample to share with you from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog!

This stamp set has the most incredible, realistic leaves! My card was created using a MOJO Monday Sketch. Very simple layout. Card base is Very Vanilla, & dry embossed with Sizzix Big Shot Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. Additional cardstock is Expresso, Old Olive, & Cajun Craze. Ink is Cajun Craze, Expresso, Old Olive, & So Saffron. Completed project with Vanilla Satin Ribbon. Wow, I love the fall colors!

And, here is another little project I wanted to share! My husband made this 10 x 10 sheet metal board for me :) I have it on an easel to greet customers at my new Stampin' Studio classroom! And, the little magnetic clip was CASED from the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog, page 200!!! I was looking for a project to creat with the Seniors that I work with. And, this was perfect!!! They covered their tin boards with designer paper, & created the magnetic clips to match! The magnetic clips use clothespins, the ribbon border punch, a little ribbon, & magnets for the back. Was a great time with them, as always!!!

Come back to visit soon, and in the meantime, Happy Stamping!

Whooo could use some cute office supplies???

It's been a while, so I apologize for my absence. I have been busy, busy, busy...
We have converted a downstairs bedroom into my new craft studio. I can't wait to have classes in my home. Have any of you seen how much stuff I pack into my car for those stamp camps??? Besides re-decorating my new room, I have been working on creating samples from the next catalog, the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini. It will knock your sox off, sooo awsome!!! Only a couple of weeks left on the current Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalog. Be sure to order your favorites before they are gone. And, working on my next class, Back to School! Reminder: Aug. 27, 6-9pm at my house, pre-registration required!

Well, lets face it...8 a.m. hits and we sit down to that same desk, covered with the same stack of papers, day after day... Summer is coming to a close, and we need a little something to make that desk more inviting! Or, do the kids need something fun tucked in their school supplies? Altered office supplies are sure to put a smile on your face. I have added a couple of photos of one of the projects from the upcoming Back to School class. Photo includes front & inside of the post it note purse.

Isn't that little owl adorable!!! And the Play Date designer paper, too cute!!!Whoooo wouldn't love this fun project???

And...we have file folders to match...WooooHooo! Gotta love it!!

Thanks for stoppin by!
