Halloween Matchbook Treats

It’s time to start thinking about some Halloween treats!  We made these simple matchbook treats at my Club Class last week, and I made a bunch more this weekend at a retreat.  My daughter is going to give them for class treats, and to all of the teachers/aides that help with her class.  I like to send a little something to the music, PE, computer teachers, etc. so that they feel a little love, too!…

Gift Box Punch Board

I’m so excited to see my Stamp Club gals tomorrow night and show them how to use the Gift Box Punch Board!  We will make this small box with a little bow at the top — and they can create either version.  I have additional samples for various sizes that I will have on display, as well.  I really believe this is a tool that you will not be disappointed in — and it has…

Pleated Party Pouch

Hello friends!  I’m still alive and kickin’!  Sorry that I haven’t posted in awhile.  I’m not sure who I thought I was fooling to think that I could keep up with posting while I was in Orlando……and now this week has been consumed with “catch-up” from being gone from the office 10 days and having 2 Stampin’ Up! classes on the calendar.  Whew! Tonight is my September Club Class and I’m thrilled to show you…

Halloween Happiness

Have you tried any of our single stamp images?  Perfect for a tight budget, a little something for the holidays, or an affordable gift for a friend.  I purchased this one and only Halloween image when the Holiday catalog was first released.  I was excited to see several ideas on Pinterest and adapted this card from one of those.  I have some of my club members who I felt would not want the Halloween words,…

Halloween Candy Wrappers

I happened to find a really cute idea last week on the Women’s Day website and decided to tweek them a little to give them the look of a Stampin’ Up! project.  We made these as one of our club projects this past week.  I thought you’d enjoy the patterns (provided on the link above) and the Stampin’ Up! variations we made.  First, a friendly little bat… Opens up to reveal some adorable stamped images… And…

A Cute Little Spook

I’ve always liked the phrase “Too Cute to Spook”…..and that’s what I thought of when I saw this little ghost.  This is another fun idea using one of Stampin’ Up!’s punches.  Simply punch 2 of the Petal Card Double punch and glue them together for a fun little nugget holder. This is what the punch looks like.  It sells for $17.95.  Perhaps you have overlooked this punch? ME TOO!  But now it’s going on my…

A trip to the Haunted House…

I remember going to a few Haunted Houses as a kid.  Now that I have kids of my own, I can’t even begin to torture them like that.  I know some people really like them.  But I haven’t been to any as an adult — and I don’t plan on starting now!  But how about a CUTE little Haunted House card?  This is all done in fun — and of course copied from another amazing…

Halloween Booty Card

I am extremely grateful for special cards and treats brought to me from friends and demonstrators!  This one (made by Dee) is an adorable Halloween “fun” card that she brought to me at Stamp Camp last month.  Such a fun card with lots of Stampin’ Up! elements!  I am off to my third day of work at my new job……..and we are all adjusting to the new “normal” schedule.  Is there such a thing?  I’ll…

FAITH Blocks (Part 2)

Last month I had a class where we made the FAITH blocks…. And I planned all along to have a “follow up” class where we make 5 more sets of tags to hang on the blocks.  Here is a “sneek peek” of three of them… I will also be working on “GIVE thanks” blocks and “LOVE” blocks.  We will make all 5 sets in a class on September 11th at 6:30 p.m.  You will NOT…

Spooky Expressions Decor Elements

I know it might be a little bit early for jack-o-lanterns………but I want to show you this so you can think ahead.  I had to shop several places to find some plain orange plates that I could use for this project, so I thought that you might want to start looking NOW for them if you want to make one of these.  These cute little faces are Decor Elements and there are THREE of them…
