Why didn't the skeleton go out on Halloween?

He didn't have any "body" to go with!! Hee Hee!! I crack myself up is one more~ Whay wasn't there any food left at the monster party? Because everyone was a "goblin" it up! Halloween is one of my favorite brings the kid out in everyone! I plan on being Jane Jetson this year for Halloween...for those that know me~it's perfect!! It was that or Miss Piggy...and Jane won the vote! Last Stamp Camp I had to postpone because so many people had sick children..or were not feeling well themselves..I hate this time of year when everyone comes down sick. You will want to put October 30th on your calendar for my regular Stamp Camp, we will be making 2 cards/envelopes and a 3-D item (Cup-a-Soup holder). Great to give to someone who could use a "Get Well Wish". So I hope now all of you are healthy and able to attend some of these events. This Sunday's Holiday Stamp-A-Stack (October 18th) you will be able to make these items: Pat & Patty (she is dressed as Dorothy this year for Halloween!) In between are Peppermint patty treats..aren't they cute?? Plus you will be able to make this Top Note Treat Box that holds a Reese's peanut butter treat (yum-yum)! PLUS these two Halloween cards/envelopes using the Twick or Tweet stamp set (116497).I love this set and the skeleton is so cute when you add googly eyes...just too funny! These cards were CASED by the 'great' Jen Sanes of so be sure to check out her blog and awesome talent..sometimes the simpest cards are the best...and great to use when you need to mass produce!!


Wow!! What happened to Fall?? It feels like winter outside~ guess that's why I have been in the mood for Christmas..don't tell anyone but I have been singing Christmas carols to myself while I stamp! This Sunday I am having a Holday Stamp Camp. If you live in the area, come on by!! I will have chili and cornbread to keep your belly full while stampin'. We will be making 12 holiday cards/envelopes Cost is $25 Click here to view my Stampin' Up! website for all upcoming scheduled events. Contact today to schedule your holiday workshop with your family and friends. The above pictures are what we made at my last Stamp Camp..see you don't want to miss out on all the fun things we get to make!! The tutorial for the accordian album can be found here. I love this idea, and altered it a bit to include photos, a gift card, notes, etc. Each page has a pocket made with the DSP. Isn't it cute?? Great idea for N-O-E-L or B-A-B-Y..just change out the paper and color scheme! Contact me if you have any questions on this project or any others you see on my blog.

2 posts in one day??

Perhaps I have the H1N1...I shouldn't even joke about that!! You know I'll be coming down sick next week because I just jinxed myself. I just wanted to share what we made at my last Stamp Camp. I am actually about to post a video for this second video tutorial~WOW! I hope not to sound so dull and boring!! I love these little Sweet Treat Cups (116802). You can fill them with all sorts of goodies, here I used small confetti leaves for the 'fall' season and to celebrate our local Hot Air Balloon festival. If you live locally, I highly recommend checking it out, just click the link above for more information. I haven't been up in one yet, but one day soon I hope to...this time of year would be so pretty!! Let me know if you have any questions and hope you all have a great day!

The Great Stampin' Up! Pumpkin!!

The other day I went to my friend Anne's house, she recently signed up to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator (hooray for Anne!!) Here is a link to her SU! website. She was hosting her first Stampin' Up! event and I went to help in anyway I could. She had mentioned to me earlier in the week that as a 'thank-you' to me...she had a gift she was working on. Low and behold as I walked up her sidewalk...this baby was glowing before my eyes!!! Can you believe it?? I love it! (Thanks Anne!!) Her husband is a dentist and used his crafty dentist tools to carve the SU! logo onto one of those craft pumpkins, underneath he carved out a hole and placed a flameless candle. My photos just don't do this little baby's stunning in real life when the sun goes down. I told her that he needs to make another one and send it to Stampin' Up! Here is a picture in my bathroom..had to try to get a shot of what it looks like in the dark!! Pretty cool huh??

Easy to make create not only scrapbook pages with designer templates (seriously...all you add are your can complete a 50+ page album in a matter of minutes!) Make a DVD, calendar or 5 different sizes of cards!! What I have found that you can simply design a card 'digitally' and when you have decided on the look that you like... make it!! Or you can create hybrid projects that have been either printed at home or by Stampin' Up! and then add certain embellishments. It is just so cool...let me know if you would like any additional information on the product. sure to check out the 'Deal of the Week'. The first weeks promotion will run until Monday October 12th.
