Crafty Christmas Projects

Here are the projects we made at our last Stamp Camp.  Thanks to everyone who came and crafted with us!
The idea from this project came from a swap at convention.  Using the Top Note die for a wrap for the candy cane makes for a cute project.
Beautiful card I CAS'd from another demo.  Love this stamp set.
Another beautiful and simple CAS.  Using the classic Lovely as a Tree stamp set and the set I find I go to more and more for fun stamping Work of Art.
Fun little box made with our new Gift Box Punch Board.

The next four projects were my downline Kelly's
Red Christmas
Set of 3 cute tags
Snowman clip with a chocolate
A Christmas Post Card

The last four projects were my downline Shannon's creations.
Such a pretty star card
Reminds me of a Coca Cola card
Set of 4 fun tags
and a Santa gift card holder (sorry this one is pretty blurry)
and that's it!  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

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!
