Paper Pumpkin is going Pink

Hi Everyone,

Well I think fall is certainly upon us. My goodness the cold and rain have arrived. That's okay because it gets our creativity and crafting going. I've finally finished my swap to send out soon. I don't want to be late. I just love that Christmas Cuties set by Stampin' Up! Here is my card.

Santa's Helper from Christmas Cuties
I loved using the Home for Christmas DSP
This project used Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Home for Christmas DSP, and Mint Macaron Cardstock. These all go together so well. The chimney was so easy using left over squared from the Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies.

Speaking of Hearth and Home Thinlits Dies, the Happy Scenes specialty class was a lot of fun. Here are the projects we did together for the class.

Silver Foil Doilies add just the thing

A simple Boo to You

I saw a video on YouTube on how to expand the window.

Didn't do at the specialty class. I'm
sharing at a group tonight.

I love the Cherry Cobbler and Soft Suede Combo.

Just a little fall feel for those blustery days
I wanted to let you know that the Weekly Deals this week are fantabulous. That's right, just awesome. The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies are such a great deal! $10.00 off for this week. There are so many thinlits in this set as well as a coordinating stamp set. I have a new mystery hostess special for the month of September. If you want to get any weekly deals, you will have to purchase this week through Monday. A new set of deals begins next Tuesday. Order this month and use the Hostess Code DAZW2HYV to be part of mystery hostess. Anyone ordering the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies will receive a free decorative mask set for free. There are the Dots and Stripes or Hearts and Stars masks. Don't order it yourself, simple contact me and tell me which you would like.

Sour Cream Treat Container
I do love the new products in the catalog. The Sour Cream Container directions are as follows:
Cut DSP to 6 x 6 (#139584 Happy Haunting) Put adhesive along 3 sides. Make a roll by bringing up the nonstick side to the opposite side. Press one end closed. Fill with treats and pinch the top closed. Stamp poison bottle from Sweet Hauntings #139702 on white CS (1 3/8” circle punch). Color with marker and mount on a punched circle of Tangelo Twist (1 ¾”). Adhere ¼ of spider web doily to back on circle. Use a dimensional to mount to treat bag.

Banner Triple Punch

Hi Everyone,

Well it is that fall weather coming upon us and time to get your holiday stamping on. I am thrilled to share about Stampin' Up's Banner Triple Punch in the annual catalog.

The Banner Triple Punch has 3 sizes of banners. 1", 1 1/2", and 2" in width. In my video you will see that there are limitless possibilities with this banner punch. You can have paper size up to the width of the punch itself. Simply turn the punch over so you can see to line things up. It's a great value.

Be sure to contact me at my website for more details. Cost is $30.00. We will create this wreath with many banners for different seasons. Can't attend in person? Ask about my on-line class option.
