Mini catalog Goodies

001 This is one of the new stamp sets from the Holiday Mini Catalog that we can now order from. It is called Sweet Treats. The card is also a new in color called Dusty Durango, a perfect color for Halloween. The treat cup is also available in the mini cattie. They are a really cute way to give the gift of chocolate. The green is called Old Olive.

The inside of the card is a case (copy and share with everyone) from a great blog called craftdoc. She has some neat ideas on her blog! 002

The design is so the card won’t be ripped apart when someone tries to get out the candy. The Basic Black cardstock is slipped under another piece of cardstock and it hides the opening of the treat cup so the candy can be poured out easily, it can also be refilled to regift it wanted.

This is the scrapbook page my stamp club will be making this month. The Perfect Plum cardstock is put on a piece of

8 1/2x11 Basic Black. I cut a strip of the designer series paper (dsp) called Cast-a –Spell and glued it down on the left side of the page.


The little skeleton with the doggie having him for a snack is a stamp set in the mini called Twick or Tweet. I sponged a little Pumpkin Pie ink around the skeleton to soften it up a little. The green dsp is also from Cast-a Spell. I finished it off with a couple of More Mustard brads. Love it!!


And the final project for my club is an adorable little box called a pillow box. This is made using a die from Stampin’ Up! called a Pillow Box die. Who would of guessed. The stamp set is called Pumpkin Patch and it is really cute and easy to use.005

I will find some little goodie to put inside .

Thank you for checking all of this out, please leave me a comment or two and let me know what you think!!

Amanda’s Birthday Bash

048 049 050 051

I finally made a banner from the pennant die !!!

It was my daughter’s birthday and I wanted her to have a cool banner for her party. Her colors were purple, white and silver. I used whisper white, plum and cottage wall dsp. I used the sticky cuts letters and spelled her name out using the silver glitter. And to add some more bling… I used the ice rhinestone brads to top it off. I figured out how to hang it using the silver cord and it turned out pretty cute. She loved it!!! So of course I had to make her a card to match……………069 Yes it is upside down, we did not notice until now; but oh well, what can you do?

I hope you get the idea.070 And she was so excited to get her first official stamp set of her own!! It was on my wish list so I guess now I will have to borrow it from her!!
