Happy happy Hawwmp Day, y’all! Hope your week is going well! My days are flying by – we’ve got our Stampin’ Up! OnStage At Home event the first weekend in November (and TWELVE of my CNCK team are attending – virtually! – with me!) and then the weekend after that is our friend’s wedding! We’ve got a cool house rented on Pawley’s Island – right on the beach! 🙂 Busy days ahead and then we’re gonna blink and…CHRISTMAS!!
Speaking of Christmas, my October Joy To The World Paper Pumpkin kit arrived last weekend and I put the eight gorgeous Christmas cards together right quick last night! This kit is really beautiful – and even left me some extra pieces to make a bonus goodie! Check out these beauties:
Good morning, y’all! About ready for Christmas?
I totally am. I have all my shopping done – my Christmas cards are all made, addressed and ready to mail. I have wrapped all the gifts I’m giving in a manner that would make Martha Stewart pea-green with envy and awestruck with admiration. I’ve planned my menu for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve AND New Year’s Day. AND I’m developing a new recipe for a romantic dessert for Valentine’s Day.
Whew! If absolutely even ONE part of that had been anything more than total and complete fiction from the mind of a crazy woman then….I WOULD. BE. AMAZING!
No – I’m for sure not that far ahead and I’m sort of assuming that you aren’t either! But – that ticking clock you hear in your head says it’s time to be thinking about the gifting – packaging – mailing you need to do, am I right?
So…I’m here today to help you with PART of the Holiday-Season-Prep-Frenzy with….my annual….
Stamps-N-Lingers Ordering Special!
Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!! Today’s a sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table! I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!
As I started to work on this sketch – my brain saw some some plaid. Duh, Mare… and…the Festive Corners stamp set. As I worked thru building the card – my plan to put one of the vertical sentiments from Festive Corners in the middle of the oval sort of fell thru. But – it was an easy fix – I added pines from the In The Pines stamp set (even better!). Take a look-see:
Morning, y’all! Happy Tuesday. I’m not going to tell you about my Monday – the morning in particular – cuz…you’ll decide I’m cray cray and unfollow me! Let’s just say that Monday started at 5:30 when I set off the alarm in the house even as I stared at the big sign that’s been on the door for three weeks that says “STOP – disarm alarm before opening door” and…it was for sure Monday all the rest of the day! So…I am very happy that this is NOT Monday!
I thought I’d give you a peek at the latest Paper Pumpkin kit – since the deadline for signing up for the October Joy To The World kit is fast approaching!
The September kit – called Hello Pumpkin – was a Treat kit. Everything you need to create 20 treat crackers – decorated for Fall, Thanksgiving or Halloween!
Like every Paper Pumpkin kit, it has an exclusive stamp set – the 11-stamp Hello Pumpkin set – and an ink Spot – this one is in Cajun Craze!
And – it also provided all the pieces and parts you’ll need for your treat crackers – including all sorts of cool die-cut flowers, vines, witch hats, pumpkins, doilies and sentiment labels!
Now – we live down a very long – and dark! – driveway. And we have a gate at the end. So….in the umpty-billion years we’ve lived here we’ve not had one single solitary trick-or-treater. Not-a-one. And parties aren’t really a thing for us. If that sounds sort of like you – and treat crackers aren’t really up your alley – let me show you some alternate ideas!
These used one of the scalloped rectangle dies from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the centers out of the treat boxes to then adhere onto Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes card bases.
The sentiments are stamped onto the die cut banners and adhered to the card front with Stampin’ Seal and the adhesives included in the kit!
A little die cut pumpkin from the kit finished the inside of each card, too.
It made 12 note cards – with plenty of leftovers to make even more!
Here are a couple more alternate project ideas from the clever minds of Stampin’ Up!
Now – just in case you do need Treat Crackers – this is a fun way to make a bunch! Here’s the quick video showing you how to put them together as planned! 🙂
Well – it’s Monday again – hope y’all are ready for the week! Don’t know about you but we here in GA had a simply perfect Fall-preview day yesterday! Bright sun – blue skies – low humidity – mid 70’s! My windows and doors were open all day and I enjoyed a few hours on the mower in the pasture! It was wonderful – and I hope we get a few weeks of it!
One of my friends from my previous work-life is…getting a new addition to his family! They lost their senior GSD a few months back and…finally were ready for a new face in the house. So…I made them a card to welcome…Gus! They’re pretty big gardeners, so I used the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle, the Dog Builder Punch (duh!) and a few sentiments from the Well Said stamp set and coordinating Well Written Dies. Take a look-see:
Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – LeAnn’s given us a Clean-and-Simple challenge to work with this week! 🙂 It’s a good one – and one that I know will give your creative mojo a bump! So I hope you’ll come and play along with us!
If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me! If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
