Halloween Flowers

Hello my friends! Today I would like to share with you these Halloween flowers I made. 

These flowers where made with the Big Shot & Bouquet Bigz Die. 

For the big spider web flower I cut very vanilla card stock and stamped spiderwebs on the petals. The spiderweb stamp is from the Witches Night stamp set. I also sponged around the petals with a stampin sponge and the new Archival Basic Black Stampin Pad! The flower steams you can pick up from your local craft store. Just paint them black like I did.

 For the smaller flower I just cut out the petals from the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper and also sponged around the edges. 

Here is another look. I just LOVE the little ghosts on the card stock!

The soda bottle I picked up at my local craft store. I filled it up with orange yummy sixlets chocolate candy!  I glued two Spider Web Doilies to each side of the soda bottle. 

Here is how it looks from the side.

Happy Stampin'!

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream For Ice Cream!

Hello my friends! Today I would like to share with you a gift card holder / birthday card that I made using the NEW stamp set called Sprinkles Of Life along with the NEW coordinating Tree Builder Punch and NEW Cherry On Top designer series paper! Did I mention New, New & New?

 What's great about this stamp set besides the cuteness of ice cream cones and cupcakes is for every set sold Stampin' Up! will donate $3.00 to The Ronald McDonald House Charities. Which is pretty awesome!

                                      Here is the card that's inside. Do you like?
Now I just have to share because I like how the cone came out on the front of the bag. What I did was stamp the cone with Delightful Dijon (<----- New In Color) and then I closed the Stamp Pad and gave it a little squeeze so when I opened it there was a little bit of the ink on top of the inside of pad. I then used my handy dandy Blender pen and did a little swipe on the ink and then colored the cone. Super easy and fun!  I liked how it came out.

                                                 Here is the Stamp set.

                                  Here is the coordinating Tree Builder Punch.
Tell me what you think? I would love to hear from you. What is one, or should I say SOME (because really who can just pick one) of your favorite NEW  product from the New 2015-2016 Annual Catalog? Let me know in the comments.

Man Card Monday

Hello peeps!
Okay I know it's supposed to be "Man crush Monday" but I thought it would be fun to share with you two cards that I made that can be considered "Man Cards".
First up is a birthday card I made for my kiddos Great Grandfather. 
I thought he would get a kick out of the greeting. He did. This card was made using the "Soon to be gone" Adventure Bound designer series paper. The sweet car and greeting is from the Guy Greetings stamp set. I Added a little bit of linen thread and boom done! 

This next card is a CASE from the Occasions Catalog which by the way is GOING AWAY soon. How soon? How about tomorrow soon. There is some sweet bundles going on and only a few stamps get carried over. I know so sad but with this there is always a positive note. Like a NEW ANNUAL CATALOG!!! More on that in a few. Let's get back to the card. 

This card was made with the new Bow Builder punch, which my friends is awesome by the way! The sweet #HappyBirthday greetings is from the Balloon Bash stamp set. Sadly my friends it's not being carried over. So if you love this set and don't own it yet. Now is the time or forever say goodbye. So dramatic but it's true. If you want it please go to my online store to get it!
Here is what comes in the set.

Now about that new catalog I was telling you about. One word. Awesome. Yes my friends there are so many new goodies in there you will LOVE it. I promise. Want one? and DON'T have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator?  I would love to get you one and just maybe (if you want me to be) your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Just send a email to me. 

Thank you for stopping by. Oh and yes Man crush Monday would not be complete without a picture of my man crush so I leave you with this. Just little old me with my forever "Man Crush Monday" my hubby Daniel.

You & Me

 Hello my peeps! Today I want to share with you a picture frame I decorated AND a quick project life layout.

First up is this picture frame.
Now I had wanted to cover the whole frame with these cute paper flowers made with the Spiral Flower Die and my most FAVORITE tool the Big shot. I made the flowers and as I was playing around with the placement I decided that just the 3 looked good. Sometimes simple is just as awesome sauce as Fancy. 

Here is a close up of the flowers.

Here is a close up of the cute little banner.
Did you notice the background behind the pictures? It's embossed with the Happy heart embossing folder. Also one of my favorites!

Next up is the Layout I made with Project life by Stampin' Up!

I had some pictures left over and instead of just putting them away to probably never to be seen again I decided to make a quick layout. With Project Life by Stampin' Up! It's easy to document life's little moments. Like this. My hubby and I go on a bussiness trip once a year and we always take pictures in the photo booth. I have yet to document this! Crazy right? I had this whole crazy thinking that when I did scrapbook it had to be the, had to be awesome layouts with all the bells and whistles. 
Then it hit me. Scrapbooking does NOT have to be fancy. It can be simple and still be as awesome. Now I have this little layout with my pictures and evertime I look at it I remember the good night I had with my hubby. All thanks to Project Life by Stampin' Up! 

Thank you for stopping by. To order products used in making these two projects please visit my online store at and click on shop!

Happy Stampin'!
