Creativity Delivered and a little bit of fun too!

It's finally here - the Holiday catalog!  Oh it is so beautiful, have you seen it?!?!  Let me give you a very short peek:

 

As you see, we have you covered from Fall, to Halloween, to Thanksgiving and into Christmas!  My personal favorites would be the Merry Café stamp set that works perfectly with the Coffee Cup framelits that we already feel in love with from the Annual catalog.  I also LOVE the mini pizza boxes - did you know they are food safe?!?  Yes, they will be so fun to use for homemade treats as well as gift cards for the holiday season.  The Designer Series Paper will catch your attention, we have light weight sheet music for Christmas!!  I just can't stand it - there is so much goodness in this catalog my friends! 

When was the last time you had some fun with your closest friends?  Some laughs, good food and crafting - do I have your attention?  I am looking for some hostesses that would open their homes, invite a few of their closest friends, and I will bring you projects for you all to make  - fun for all!  For a limited time, you can also get an exclusive stamp set called Merry Patterns Stamp Set for FREE, when you host a party with $300 in sales. (it's easy to get to this when you have crafty friends!)   That is in addition to all the other wonderful goodies you will receive when you host a Stampin’ Up! party. Best of all?  You can spend a couple of hours with your friends!  This offer is good for the months of September and October so contact me today to get you party scheduled.  Would you like to see this exclusive set?  Here we go:

 

So much to love about this time of year - my favorite?  ANYTHING PUMPKIN!  LOL  Pumpkin bars, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, Pumpkin Cheerios - the list goes on!

Making a mess can be fun for adults too!

Hello my friends!  Many, many years ago, I learned a technique that still  amazes me to this day!  A little bit of shaving cream, ink and paper, and the sky is the limit for fun!

So there is a love/hate to this technique.  (there had to be a catch, right?)  LOL  So it can be messy - that one is obvious as you can see from the photo above.  You may get ink on your hands but let me tell you....IT'S SO MUCH FUN!!!  I love that each time I drop my paper in this plate of squishy goo, I never know what it will look like until I scrape the mess off my cardstock.  Each piece is literally a one of a kind creation and you can change up the colors to match any kind of event.  (School colors, baby showers, seasonal etc) 

For this session, I went for some Fall colors since it is right around the corner.  Below are some of the samples I used with the following re-inker colors:

  • Lemon Lime Twist
  • Cajun Craze
  • Tempting Turquoise

As you can see from the photo, even using the same colors will look different on each sheet of cardstock because of the fluid movement of color!  I typically let it dry - that does not take long, then start to look for some coordinating cardstock for a base.  Once I have that all picked, I decide how to showcase that beautiful work of art!  For this I knew I wanted to try to some copper paper and also had the new champagne paper too! (IT'S SO PRETTY!!!)   I was not sure how it was going to come together so I laid it all out so I could plan.  I also wanted to prove that my room, or my table are rarely clean at any given time.  For some reason, I like to work with lots on my table for inspiration.  (We as crafters never do that right?!?!?)  Here is what the finished project looked like:

Leaves together

The single leaf card is using the new champagne foil paper that you can purchase on September 1st!  It is so beautiful, to me, it looks like silver with a pink undertone.  I also mixed in more texture with the Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP and Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  I was so happy how things came together on these two cards!  Great news...the card on the right will be a class offering in September too! (YAY!!)

I hope you enjoyed the project - stay tuned because I am doing a video on this one.  :)

Until next time!
