Stampin' Addicts Fall & Holiday Blog Hop

Hellooo!  and welcome to Stampin' Addicts Fall and Holiday Blog Hop.  I am so excited about the new  Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini.  It's packed full of all kinds of fun things and it's 51 pages long.  Hopefully you will get some great ideas from our projects that we are sharing with you this weekend.  There are 12 stops on the hop and I'm #7.  You can start at anyone of the blogs and hop around until you make a complete circle back to the blog you started at.  If you are following the Hop in order you have just arrived from Paula's Blog where she wow'd us with the Stamp Set "Freaky Friends".  Paula always has great projects.  Such a fun little Halloween set don't you think?  I have chosen the fun DSP that goes with that stamp set and it's called "Motley Monsters".  I love it!  Soooooo here's my projects.
Here's a group shot of my projects, trying to show some versatility in the paper.

First project up is a fun double fold card with 2 different sized cut out windows.  I don't know that I care much for scary Halloween stuff but this paper just makes me happy with all the fun and bright little monsters on it.  Check back next week for the how to's on this card.
My second project is the smaller Project Life album that I altered.  I added part of the cover from our convention book to the front and am going to use this for my own convention album.
....and last but not least is this fun little project I made using one of Stampin' Ups! smaller plastic containers for the wooden stamps.  Did you know you can buy these in a pack of 4 or the large ones in a pack of 2?  They make great little gifts.  All you have to do is slip the DSP in between the clear plastic cover and the box.  **Blog Candy Alert** Now this little box just happens to be full of candy corn and I'm going to send it to the person the comes closest to the right amount.  So be sure a leave a comment for me with your guess.
  And that's my projects.  I hope you are enjoying the Hop so far but there is still more wonderful and fun projects waiting for you so it's time to get hopping.  Your next stop is going to be Betty's Blog where she is featuring the Fall Fest Bundle.  I can't wait to see what wonderful things she has come up with using it.  I just love her work!  Happy Hopping everyone and have a great day!

Summer Stamp Camp Projects - Individual Shots

Here are individual shots of the projects we made at our latest stamp camp a few weeks ago.  If you have any questions about them please don't hesitate to ask me.  The first 4 are mine.  The next 3 are Shannon's. (She did make 4 but for some reason I only had pictures of 3 so the 4th is in the group shot post from a few days ago.) And the last 4 are Kelly's.  Thanks to all the demos who share their creations so that we might draw inspiration from them.

This was my first attempt at a Screen card.  Why did I wait so long?  They are really fun to make!
Found a card online similar to this and fell in love with it and here is my version.
A little gusset bag.  Super fun and easy to make.  They showed us how to make these at the New Catalog Premier.  The little DSP Paper Packs are just right for making these little bags.
Loving the Blendabilitie Pens, so fun to use and the results are beautiful!
Shannon's little owl box made using the fry box for the base.  Super cute!
Pretty flower card using the heart punch for petals.
I love this fun happy card and that little bit of silver just makes it POP!
   Black, White, and Red one of my fav combos for a simple, clean, crisp card.
Pretty and soft card.
Fun Birthday card using some of our new sequins.
Last a little card with lots of banners added to it.
Thanks for looking and have a stamperific day!

Stampin' Addicts New Catalog Blog Hop! Stop #2

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts 2014-15 New Catalog Blog Hop.  During this hop we will be featuring some of new stamp sets for your viewing pleasure.  There are 9 stops on this hop.  If you are following the hop in order you have just arrived from Mary's Blog where she did a wonderful job showcasing the stamp set Age Awareness.  Isn't that a super fun set?  Love it!  So since I'm stop #2 I guess I'll get with and show you my projects.  The stamp set I chose to feature was Bordering Blooms.  I think this is going to be one of my favorites for sure.  It's such a fun and super easy stamp set to work with.
Here's a group shot of the projects I made using the set.  The colors I chose to use were Lost Lagoon and Early Espresso and of course our Whisper White.
Super easy Birthday card adding some of our yummy Lost Lagoon ribbon to it for that finishing touch. The word stamp set that I used for my projects is called Four You and is still in the current catalog.
A pretty Thank You card stamp on the side and some little flowers added to the vine with some of our Early Espresso candy dots to make them pop a bit.  So fun to finish the envelopes to match.
A little Hello card with a cut edge with some Lost Lagoon added to the back makes a perfect little card for that someone special.
And then last but not least a little $ Store find.  I'm always looking for cheep little things to alter and this was a perfect little item to attach a bellyband to using this stamp set.
So I hope I've inspired you a bit and maybe got your wheels turning as to how You could use this set.  Now it's time to hop on over to Rhonda's Blog and see what fun projects she has created using the stamp set Flamingo Lingo.  Have a great weekend and thanks for hopping with us Stampin' Addicts.

Would You Like A Flower Clip?

Here's my latest find from our local CVS drug store.  I love looking through the dollar bins at any store I go in.  Perfect for adding paper flowers too.
And I've got some just waiting to go home with those that would like to host a workshop.  Just let me know.  Have a great day everyone!

Hooray For Today! (CASing Jamie)

I LOVE the Retro Fresh DSP and am going to be very sad to see it retire.  This is my version of a card made by Jamie Hurley.  I made my cute little carnation with the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle punch and thought it turned out pretty.  This card also uses the Honeycomb and Banner Framelits.  The saying is from the stamp set Geometrics.  Just a really fun card to make.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Covered Notepad & Matching Pen

Here's a fun little gift idea.  I found some cute little notepads (4 to a pack) for $1.00 at my local CVS store.  They had them in blue, green and yellow.  They measure 5" x 3 1/2" and are a perfect size for these cute little sets I made.  The pens are called RSVP pens and you can screw the bottom off and add dsp paper to match your notepad.  Very fun and easy!
Here's an inside shot of the notepad holder and notepad.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!
