Here comes Halloween!

So it's quickly approaching! One of my fave holidays...Halloween (it's a close 2nd to Christmas!). I really need to decide on a costume and get it ordered! No idea what I want to be this year!

I have never made Halloween cards before since I've never had a H-ween set I liked. I'm ordering a few more in Sept and I'm also going to make treats with them for family friends and the kiddos at school...stay tuned for those.

In the meantime I've been playing with H-ween colors and the new sweet treats set (it's so cool, all the stamps have a place to punch a hole and place a "sweet treats cup" in. They are little plastic cups that you can fill with candy or glitter or whatever. I was too tired to play with them last night so I wanted to use the stamps by themselves (and I didn't have anything good to fill them with, they will look UBER cute with candy corn in them!!!!).

I also used the wide striped ribbon for the first time, I love it. It adds so much to the project and it's super soft! I love the combo of green, purple, and orange too. Here are the two cards I made:

The first one uses the new orange in-color called Dusty Durango the second uses good old pumpkin pie. They both use old olive and another in-color rich razzleberry. I did some sponging on both cards too to add some depth and dimension. I think it make it look very Halloween-ie! Stay tuned for more spooky stuff! And contact me today to book a workshop, sign up for a class or club or place an order! There's still time to get your Halloween projects done! We have a ton of cool Halloween stamps and even DSP. Great for scrapbooking, party invites, cards, home decore and more!!!

Christmas has come early...thanks to the man in brown!

I got my pre-order from the Mini catalog yesterday and after working over 12 hours yesterday and then another 5 this morning I FINALLY got to play! I stayed up for over an hour last night mounting everything:-) I got around 8 new sets (I know, I'm crazy) and they are all so cute!

The two sets I used today are called Cold & Cuddly and Just Beclause (no, I didn't spell that wrong, tehehe). I also used a couple of sentiment sets, they are Four the Holidays (4 sayings) and Christmas Greetings (out of the Big IBC).

I also tried my hand at the new window sheets. They are clear acetate sheets (12 X 12) that have snowflakes printed on them. They are super cute and really make a project pop! Would be VERY cute for scrapping! There is also some new stuff called shimmer paints and they will be going on my next order, look SUPER cool! They come in white, gold-ish and silver and will make your holiday projects soooo glitzy!

Hope you enjoy and let me know when you're ready to place your mini catty order, it begins September first! (If you would like a catalog or mini catalog just let me know!) OR you could have a workshop and take advantage of the new hostess promotion and get even MORE free merchandise with a qualifying order. Contact me today to reserve your date! And keep checking back for updates on my upcoming Christmas Card class! And now here are the other two cards (email me for list of supplies used):

Bad Demo!

So I've been a bad, bad demo! I havn't posted a blog in a long time! Well it doesn't mean I havn't been stamping, just busy! Working 40 hours a week 9-5 style (which I do over the summer) is rough on me:-) BUT soon I'll be back to having a couple of mornings off a week which hopefully will leave more time for's usually the last thing on the list at night and just hasn't gotten done! I've stamped quite a bit and have lots of things to share, just not all at once.

First the Holiday Mini Catalog is due out on September 1st and BOY IS IT GREAT! It's almost 40 pages!!!!! And it's jam packed with good stuff. ALSO, there are a level one and two hostess set that are available to earn! To earn these sets just host a qualifying workshop or place a qualifying can combine items from the regular catty or the mini or just order out of one or the other! I just placed an order today for my stamp sets from the mini and it was a biggie...and I still didn't get everything I wanted. I hope to be posting creations soon!

And speaking of creations let's move on to my projects. I wanted to demonstrate how one sketch could apply to any number of stamp sets. The Christmas card was inspired from SCS. The birthday card was used to show how another set could be incorporated in the same sketch but with different colors. I really love both color combos! Ruby red and bashful blue look fresh together!

So that's it for now, I think I'll take a nap;-) We are going to the Decatur Celebration and I will need to stay up late....I was fading fast last night! Stay tuned for more of my creations and to find out about awesome specials and products!
