Let's Get Christmas On
Time to get working on your holiday list
A perfect project using punches
Hi Everyone,
It is definitely time to get working on your holiday projects from cards to tags and bags, this is the season to put on that wonderful music and get crafting! I was just at a fun scrapbooking event with friends. We got together to work on projects. I share my Project Life things and had two "make-n-take" projects to share. Boy there were some wonderful people there really creating wonderful memories.
The "make-n-takes" I shared were two simple Christmas cards that were quick and easy to make. The angel card gave everyone a chance to do a little coloring with pencils and blender pens. I love my blender pens!
Washi Tape is perfect for texture

Watercolor pencils and shimmer!

Okay, but how great are these yummy cookies! Heather brought
these to share at the event. She loves to create.

 It certainly was a nice day getting to know other great crafters. I'm inspired to get more into my Project Life memory keeping.

Have you gotten out your supplies and created a card using DSP and the template I previously mentioned in my blog? It's your chance to win a free pack of DSP. As you know, Stampin' Up! has a DSP sale through the month of October. Purchase 3 sets of DSP and you get one free. This is a great offer, but I am giving free DSP if you send me a card designed and win. Don't miss out!
Happy Stampin',

Fall is in the Air with World Card Making Day
Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Thanks for joining us in another Blogging Friends Blog Hop. We are demonstrators from all over the world who love Stampin' Up! and creativity. There is no better time than the fall season as kids get back into school, leaves change colors, and the weather gets a little crisp. In the Pacific Northwest, we begin to see more gray in the sky too. This month we are celebrating the Holiday Catalog as well as World Card Making Day. I hope you enjoy all the posts you visit today. Simply click on the icon below or a person's name to continue in the hop.
For my projects, I really wanted to focus on Halloween. I love October and the excitement of pumpkin patches and trick-or-treating. My daughters are 19 and 16, so they really don't dress up and go out trick-or-treating, but my 16 year old is excited to host a party this year with a friend. I hope you enjoy my "trick-or-treat" projects.

Be sure to share and leave a comment for your chance to win the Mini Tassels in the current holiday catalog. When commenting, include #minitassels to enter your name. Please leave your e-mail address so I can connect with you to give you your prize.


First I wanted to share this fun Spooky Night card. You might have seen my recent blog with a card my sister-n-law did with the owl punch. I decided to do my own and added some more details to step it up. Aren't these ghosts cute?
This is the cutest and simple treat pouch I made.

Using Stampin' Up's Craft Tag a Bag bags, simply fold 2/3
the way to the top. I added the cute bats as an accent.

Measure and adhere the Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper to
the folded flap with Fast Fuse so it holds well.

Add more details and dimension with the Halloween
Night Specialty Designer Series paper

Add a fun insert with a Halloween treat greeting
from the Spooky Fun Stamp set.

Embellish with a spooky scene using Spooky Fun Stamp set
 and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits.

Well there you have it. These cute treat pouches will be so much fun at my daughter's party with her friend. We will be putting in a lot of work on our Big Shot machine!
