Build A Box Snowman

Love, love, love the new box maker board from Stampin'Up!. Here's what I made for Tracy Mitchell for hosting tonight. My idea came from a snowman done by Cindy Elam for the last Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop. I added a hat to my snowman.  I made the 3 biggest cubed boxes for his body and the same size as head for his hat.  I used the envelope maker board for the brim of his hat.  The Owl Builder Punch for his eyes, smile and buttons.  I used the new 1" Cherry Cobbler Ribbon for his scarf.  Thanks for looking!  Have a super duper day!

Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop.  Can you believe that it's that time of year again already?  or it will be soon enough.  I'm so glad you are joining us for this fun Hop.  And I hope you will get a little inspiration from our ideas.  There are 14 stops on the Hop featuring products from Stampin' Ups! Holiday Mini and I'm number 2 so if you are following the Hop in order you have just arrived from stop number 1 which just happens to be Cindy's Blog named Hearts Delight where she did a amazing job showcasing Cheerful Tags and The Gift Box Punch Board.  Love it!  Remember that no matter where you start on the Hop you can still see all the ideas just by hopping around until you get back to where you started.  I chose to showcase the Wonderous Wreath Bundle.
Don't you love it when an idea you have in your head actually works when you put it on paper.  The only thing I had to do was to make this card  4 1/4 square card.  It's a very simple card and that's just what I was going for.  Inks I used were Real Red, Pear Pizzazz, and Wild Wasbabi.  I love this fun set!
My second project came from a tealight that Becky Roberts had designed.   I wanted to go for the simple look and came up with this cute little wreath tealight.  Wouldn't this make cute little favors sitting at everyone's place at the dinner table for that special Christmas meal?
and that's it!  I hope you enjoyed my projects and feel free to visit my blog again soon.  Now it's time to hop on over to Kim's Blog - Stitchin' N Stampin' On Paper to see what adorable things she has come up with using the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlit.

Fall Stamp Camp Projects

Thanks to everyone that came out last week and stamped with us.  We had a great time and great projects!  I must confess that all of my projects were cased from fellow demos.  I have gotten some great swaps lately and I have to say watching triplet 2 year old boys through the week is exhausting so I was very grateful for the wonderful ideas I have gotten my hands on lately.  One thing I love about being a demo is that there is a wonderful pool of very talented stampers to share ideas with.  That being said here are the projects.  Enjoy!  Here are the four I had for our stampers to make.
 Beautiful card using the big Butterfly stamp.  This is a CAS from a swap I received at convention.
 LOVE  this turkey card!  Got this idea from a swap made from Liz Orr at the Unite and Excite event in Terre Haute. 
 Cute little sucker holder from Marie Ann Wood also from the Unite and Excite event.  (Everyone made 2 of these fun treats.)
 I have to say this was my favorite hands done.  This idea came from Sandy Appelhans from the Unite and Excite event.
Inside shot.  Isn't this just too cute!

And here are Shannon's four projects.
 Very cute tuxedo card.
 Cute Halloween card
 Coffee cup card
and a cute envelope with card.  
And here are Kelly's four projects.
 Beautiful fall card
 Fun Birthday card
 Silly Halloween card
and a cute little pumpkin box.
Hope you liked the projects, and if you missed the Stamp Camp maybe you can come to the next one.  Have a great day!  and thanks for stopping by!

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.
