Here is a cute little Halloween treat bag that I made loosely based on a treat bag in our Stampin' Success demonstrator magazine. Isn't the groom paper to die for in Halloween projects?!? Amira, I bet you're glad you bought some, eh? If you haven't guessed, this is the favor that will be inside the Spooky Jar for my class on Sunday, September 6th. I can still purchase you a kit if you'd like to do the class at a different time, or are a long-distance customer. See the post a few below for ordering information...

Christmas Scrapbook Kit Page

It's a little early for Christmas...unless you are scrappin' 2008! Here is a scrapbook page that shows my mom and son making Christmas cookies. The whole time I was making this I thought, "Why did my mom wear a BASHFUL BLUE sweater!?!" Anyways, I don't like Christmas layouts unless they are red and green, so I stuck to my guns. I used our new Christmas Simply Scrappin' Kit. Just wait until I show you more of the beautiful cards you can make with this bad boy. You'll all want one, so go ahead and go to and pick one up. Make sure to add that super cute red and white polka-dot ribbon, too!

Spooky Brocade Candy Jar

Check out this awesome Spooky Brocade Candy Jar that I made using our awesome Decor Elements! I'm having a class to make this project on September 6th - the same day and time as my Christmas Card Club. The fee to make this jar, including bow and tag is $20 (charging for materials only). And I'll include a special secret little project treat inside. Local customers only, please, due to the weight of the jar.

If you are a long-distance customer and would like the materials to make this yourself, I can provide everything but the jar for $17. Just click on the paypal button below to order - price includes shipping in the US. Local customers, just send me an email to confirm you are coming -

David's First Day

Here is David on his first day of school, today. Isn't he a cutie?

August Club Projects

Here are the great club projects for August! I can't wait to see all of my wonderful club members on August 19th and also welcome some new folks joining us for the first time! The first project is a tin that I covered in Thouroughly Modern DSP and added a Circle Circus white embossed accent to. The second project is a super-sweet Thank You card using our embossing folder. The last project is a 12x12 scrapbook page that I also incorporated Thouroughly Modern DSP into, and used our Scallop Circles #2 Die with my Big Shot to create the title accent. Let me know ASAP if you are new and coming to club this month - remember, its only $15 per meeting or a $25 order. I can ship most things long distance, too.

Build-A-Bear Dies - First Creation

Well, ALL of my Stampin' stuff came in the mail today and David just HAD to be the first one to make anything with my new Build-A-Bear dies. I'm not sure why I was initially hesitant with purchasing these - David had a BLAST making little bear puppets - we ended up sticking them on lollipop sticks, because I couldn't find any craft sticks around. (Yes, terrible mommy, eh?). Get ready for AWESOME projects, because I'll be stamping all weekend.

If you are interested in booking a workshop, let me know, because I'll be scheduling them soon - you can choose from Halloween, Christmas, and Build-A-Bear. And they will ALL be fabulous. We'll have the workshop in your home, you invite 6-10 guests, and I'll demonstrate two projects (and the hostess gets to keep them!). Then, everyone will get to make two projects themselves to take home. Email me ASAP at if you are interested. My spots will fill quickly.

Circle Circus Trees

I thought of a cute way to use the Circle Circus stamp set - as the center of trees! I used both this stamp set and Trendy Trees to make this lovely card. The colors are Pink Passion, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Tempting Turquoise. What do you think? Order now on my website -

Fancy Flowers "Thanks" Bag

This little bag uses Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper and Rich Razzleberry paper. The handle is punched with our Word Window punch.

I leave for Convention in less than 12 hours! While I'm gone, my special is this - spend $30 or more on a Stampin' Up! purchase on my website and I'll send you my September Christmas Card class for FREE in the mail! Also, any new recruits that sign up during this time period will get August, September, and October in the mail for FREE!! Can't wait for you to join my exciting team. I support both hobby and business demos well.

Cupcake Card Swap

Here is a card that I am taking to the Convention on Wednesday for swapping. I made 40 of them - let me tell you, that's a heck of a lot of coloring and glittering. But it was worth it, don't you think? I used the More the Merrier stamp set - Level III Hostess from the current catalog, Melon Mambo paper and polka-dot ribbon and paired it with Green Galore. I miss that color!!

Stamp Club - July Scrapbook Page

Isn't this scrapbook page cute for Back to School? We used the new Specialty Designer Series - "The Write Stuff". I also cut the title with our Big Shot die, Naturally Serif, and used Summer Sun as the background cardstock.
