So what would you do with this kit?

As I mentioned in my previous post, I love Fall!!  When I got to preview this month's Paper Pumpkin at Convention in July....well I just could not wait for this kit! 


I have plans to assemble these goodies for my extra special trick or treaters this year and hope they love them!  Here is a close up of the stamp set which I know will be a favorite!

So, here is my challenge - if this kit was yours, what would you do with it?  Do you love it as is or do you see an altered project?  Everyone who comments here on my blog or thru my Facebook page or even a quick email will be entered to win there very own kit - yes that means you!!  :)  I will give everyone the opportunity to respond by October 2nd so start would you use it! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!


Is it really the first day of Fall?!?!?

I blinked and here comes Fall - did this sneak up on you too?  Don't get me wrong, Fall is my FAVORITE season but living where I do, we always get shorted on this glorious season.  I wanted to share a quick and easy multi occasion card that will be featured at class in October.


This came together pretty easy using the Into the Woods Designers Series Paper featured in the current Handmade for the Holidays catalog.  This paper is gorgeous and I got to see how the talented Concept Artists at Stampin Up! hand paint our DSP, and then mass produce it for our hot little hands. (yes, I said hand painted designs!)  I also love our leaf framelits and did you see that cute little pearl with the silver rim?! 

I encourage you to come to class and try your hand at this great card - it's time to celebrate Fall!!

Did you miss class this weekend?

I hope those who attended either class this weekend had as much fun as I did!  It does take A LOT of work cutting, designing and sorting to have your goodies ready but I sure do love what I do!  I want to start by sharing two of my favorites from class. 


I should have a shirt that says "I LOVE Tip Top Taupe!!"  LOL  If you have not seen this new In Color is the time!  I created these with the Go Wild Designer Series Paper stack from our Share the Fun Idea book.  That gorgeous stack of 48 sheets has something for everyone!  I love simplicity, plan and simple. 


This one seemed to be a favorite this weekend and LOVED that everyone's looked completely different!   I am going to try my first video this week showing this technique so be on the look out.  The trees are from the new stamp set called Wonderland and it was the very first set I purchased from the Handmade for the Holidays Idea book.  Have I told you my love of trees?!?!?  :)
