Ghoulish Halloween Card

Ahhhhh, it was so nice to stamp with the girls yesterday.  It's been awhile since I've hosted a class and realized how much I missed it!  I teamed up with one of my downline Stacey, for our Crazy 4 Cards Class yesterday.  We created four super cute cards and I wanted to share one with you today.  :)

I love creating Halloween goodies!  Stampin' Up! always comes out with the CUTEST paper, stamps and accessories in the Holiday catalog!  I'm in love with the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.  All of our DSP (Designer Series Paper) is double sided - and look at these fun colors and patterns:

This paper is also available as a digital download for you digi divas.....

And how can you not fall in love with this Googly Ghouls stamp set and googlie eyes! So much fun!

Perfectly Preserved Gift Jar

I've been playing a lot with the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set.  When I first saw this set, I wasn't crazy about it.  But, the more and more I saw it being used by other demonstrators, I just had to have it!  Now, I absolutely love it!  I wanted to give my roomies, upline, and fellow Stampin' Up! friend I met last year at Convention a little gift at Regionals last weekend.  I was inspired by some cute teacher gifts Erica Cerwin made and set out to create something similar.  I found these little jars and knew they were just what I was looking for!  Here is what I made:

Aren't they cute?!  Can I tell you how excited I was when I realized that the stamps in the Mixed Medley Hostess Set fit perfectly on the bottom of a Hershey Kiss?!  Eeek! Love it!  I've already made a Halloween one and can't wait to make some Christmas ones as well!!  Thanks for the inspiration Erica!  Everyone loved their little gift!  :)

Here are the images that come with the Perfectly Preserved Bundle:

Purchasing the bundle (stamp set PLUS framelit dies) saves you 15%.  They coordinate so perfectly together you'll want them both!  Trust me!  These are in our Holiday Catalog and are only available until January 2nd.

The other stamp set I used is the Mixed Medley set and includes these 10 stamps:

Love these for holiday gifts, tags, etc.  This stamp set coordinates with our 1 1/4" scallop circle punch and 3/4" circle punch!  This stamp set is only available as a hostess set - which means you have to place a $150 order or hold a party/catalog party that totals at least $150.  Then you can get this set for free!!  I'm looking forward to using this set all year long!

Stampin' Up! Regionals!

I think I've recovered from my awesome trip to Chattanooga for the Stampin' Up! Regionals!  We had such great time!!  It was the perfect mix of stamping, amazing demonstrations, and inspiring presentations.  Oh, and lots of laughs and good food!  I wanted to share a few photos from the event!

Me & My Roomies

My Roomies and I went to Chattanooga the night before.  Here we are in a gift shop being goofy.  What you can't see in this photo, are the tears that were rolling down my face because we were laughing so hard!  Obviously, it doesn't take much to entertain us!  lol.

And here we are being a little more professional.  This was our rocking table for the day - love these ladies!!  (To the left of me is my upline, Mandy and to the right of me is my downline, Stacey.  This was Stacey's first Stampin' Up! event - and of course she won a prize!)

Here is one of the super cute make-n-takes we created.  This little box is made out of the 2 Tags Die.  What a fun gift to brighten someone's day - especially if it's filled with chocolate!!

I always love all of the creative inspiration at Stampin' Up! events.  There are tons of swaps & samples. Here are a few of my favorites from the day:

I took tons of photos and can't wait to re-create some of these incredible projects!! That's the great thing about Stampin' Up! demos - we CASE - Copy And Share Everything!  :)

My upline, Mandy presented at the Regional event on Saturday.  She did a wonderful job and demonstrated some fabulous projects - she was a natural up on stage.  Of course I took a few pics!

I loved all of Mandy's creations!  She showed us how to make the banner on her scrapbook page using the Heart Framelits (#125599) - awesome!  And I love how she used the Scalloped Tulle Ribbon (#127839) that's in our Holiday Mini Catalog on her card and Kraft Gift Boxes (#124106).  

Well, I could go on and on and share many more photos... but I suppose this post is long enough!!  

Thanks for visiting and make sure and check out my upcoming classes!  I'd love to create with you soon!  And don't forget that today is New Digi Download Day!  Check out this week's new downloads here!

Inspired by Pinterest

I saw a scrapbook layout on Pinterest by Ann Costen.  As soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to CASE it.  Everything about her layout was just perfect for these Field Day pictures I wanted to scrapbook - the colors, the layout and even the title!  Here is my version:

I discovered a new overlay when I was creating this layout.  Can you see the white chalky, grunge look in the background?  It's an overlay from the Be Awesome Kit.  Love that kit!  It's actually a calendar kit but the paper and stamps in there are fab!

You can browse/purchase the products used in my layout here:
