Spook-tacular Halloween Class!!!

I LOVE Halloween and I LOVE our new Creepy Crawly Designer Paper! Soooooooo, I had a blast coming up with some really fun Halloween decor and a treat favor. Come make 4 FABULOUS Halloween projects with me!

Date: Wednesday, October 3rd
Time: 6:30 pm
Place: Trinity Lutheran School, 300 Broad St, Menasha
Cost: $15
Sign Up Deadline: Thursday, Sept 21st

The cost of the class includes a 1/2 pack of Stampin' Up!'s fabulous Creepy Crawly Designer Paper, Lip Balm, a can of Pringles and dimensions & directions for reproduction at home!

Even if Halloween isn't something that excites you....all of these projects can be reproduced for any holiday! Come have a SPOOKTACULAR time!!!


Finally, an all-in-one tool that punches holes and silently sets eyelets, and it's portable. With 1/8" and 3/16" built-in hole punches, it silently and easily sets eyelets of both sizes-and there are no loose pieces to keep track of. But the Crop-A-Dile is more than just an ordinary eyelet setter. It also punches through chipboard, tin, and multiple paper layers with unexpected ease. You can also dry emboss small circles with it, like on the card below. You'll be amazed at what you can do with this great tool.

Right now - I'm offering the Crop-A-Dile for FREE!!!!! With $150 in outside orders - you'll earn this wonderful tool for free (value $29.95) from me!

Scrapbook Pages

Here are the scrapbook pages that my monthly scrappin' group made! I'm loving the new In Color line!!!! I used River Rock for the background and Blue Bayou for the mats - the designer paper is Porcelain Prints. Used the Spring Bouquet punch and the NEW Photo Corner punch too! The layer for journaling is Wild Wasabi. The "h" is made with the Simon Lower Chipboard and embellished with a Rhinestone Brad!

Join My Team!

Right now, with the Choose Your Color Family starter kit promotion offer, it is truly a great time to join the Stampin' Up! family. And if the free color family of inkpads is not enough to convince you to sign up, you might ask yourself these questions:

Are you ready to start saving money on your own business supplies?

Do you want to own a business that will help you pay for your business supplies and maybe even add money to the family coffers while being your own boss and working on your own terms?

Do you want to be a member of a super talented and successful group of demonstrators who will support and encourage you at every level from hobby demonstrator to rising star?

Are you interested in having a fun, Stampin' Up! obsessed upline who splits her stamp time developing her business and stamping prowess (yup, that would be me!) and happily supports all members of her downline, from hobbyists to business builders both in the Fox Valley area and across the country?

If you answered yes to any of these questions or if you have questions of your own, call (920-720-3139) or e-mail me ([email protected]) for more information. I'm happy to chat with you and answer all of your questions, with absolutely no obligation. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Supersize Snowflake Mounting Tip

I wanted to show you an alternative to mounting the Supersize Snowflake stamp set from the Holiday Mini catalog. This snowflake is as big as a background stamp. One side is the outline of the snowflake and the other is the bold image with the words "winter * wishes." I chose to mount the words on the end of the block. I also always mount the name strip of background stamps on the end of the wooden block instead of the plastic case.

Here's my 1st card with this beauty!!!! The picture doesn't do it justice.....I hate it when that's really very stunning in real life! I used Versamark ink and Iridescent Ice embossing powder for the snowflake - it sparkles like a jewel! The words are embossed in silver embossing powder. And let's not forget the cord - it's the NEW elastic cording that comes in silver or gold from the Holiday Mini Catalog!!! Lovin' that! It's much easier to tie because it stretches.....

More Convention Pictures!

I just had to post this darling daughter came to pick me up at the airport when I got back from the Denver convention (with her dad of course - she can't drive yet) and she brought me flowers!!!!! She's so VERY thoughtful! Everyone asks "where does she get that gorgeous hair?" She looks just like her dad and she gets the hair from him too....although he shaves his head now for the "Mr. Clean" look! I've always been a little partial to the "Mr. Clean" look myself! LOL

Isn't this card adorable????

This is framed with one of the chipboard giant flowers and embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder:

Here's some more chipboard and Iridescent Ice EP on our journal:

Framed art work is all the rage this season!!!

Framed Witchy Poo!

Isn't she cute??? This was one of my downline meeting projects that I made this last year and just pulled out again! I used the witch from the Booglie Eyes stamp set and last year's Designer Paper. I purchased the frames for $1 at Micheals - made a little template and used a glue stick to adhere the paper to the frame. Sometimes I whip up several of these as gifts for my workshop hostesses.

Envelope Memory Card

I was busy tonight - after a 2 hour nap!!! - making this Envelope Memory card for my brother's birthday on Monday. These are so fun - the background base is made out of envelopes attached to each other.
