I am participating in craft fair at end of October at Holliston barn.  I have been making acrylic post it calendar frames.

This is snowman kisses or tick tac holder.  This idea was Rochelle Wick's, she has a template on her blog if you want to check it out.

Birthday cards just in "case"

This is a card I used for September teacher birthdays and for recent stamp a stack.  The design is a case from stampin connection that Jill George did.  You know I love sketches to get mojo started, but casing someone's work is also a great place to get started.  As long as you give credit where credit is due!  The catalog is another great place to case from.  This card uses a Stampin Up hostess set Birthday Bakery.

I needed a quick card for a birthday party for my son's friend Scott.  He loves football so I wanted to use Stampin Up's Just football (retired).  I again went to Stampin Connection for ideas and cased this card from Julie Marshall.

I needed a cupcake, quick call 411

I needed to send a birthday card to a friend and as always- I look to a sketch for inspiration or starting point.  This was Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week.  I used Stampin Up's on a pedastel stamp set.  Hard to see but I used crystal effects on frosting part.  The sentiment is from Hostess set-Birthday bakery.

one layer card

Late night stampers challenge this week was to do one layer card.  In the midst of cleaning through some boxes stored away in my stamp room, I found some spellbinders nestabilities that I forgot I had- so that was my inspiration.  I needed some more thank you cards, this time for my son's birthday.  They are all family, so they can get simple cards at this point.  More important is that he actually write his thank you note!
Stamp set= Fast and fun notes (another under used set)

Stamping 411- I am back

Goodness me, I can't believe it is the middle of September already.  Where did the summer go???  The craziness start of school and sports, has me behind in blogging.

I did a workshop this past weekend, and needed some customer thank you's to send out.  So, needing some inspiration- I checked out Stamping 411, sketch this week.

Stamp set:  A flower for all season from Stampin Up,which I water colored with markers.

shoebox swap shares

My friend Robin hosted a shoebox swap a few weeks back and I wanted to share some of the fun projects we did.  This was Robin's card using some new in-colors peach parfait and pear pizzaz twill ribbon.  The stamp set is Stampin up's printed petals.

This was done by Colleen Cole, she always does fun 3-D items.  A cute little frame using the new two-step owl punch.

Holiday mini starts today-French Foliage share

This is a swap card I made using new set out of Holiday Mini catalog which starts today!   The set from Stampin up called French Foliage.  I used the rock and roll technique stamping technique.  Also, this is  the first time I used garden green, I must say it is growing on me.  I also used a new embossing folder in Idea book and catalog called elegant lines.  I love the fall season, but a little sad summer is ending.
