November Club Projects

Here are the club projects this month. I was inspired once again from a fellow demonstrator who swapped with me at convention this year. Followed the same layout and used the same stamp set and Designer Series Paper, just changed up the colors a little. I love sharing ideas!

Hope you enjoy!

Here is the card. There wasn't enough room for a saying on the front so I used the new & awesome Photopolymer Endless Wishes stamp set. Totally Clear! Just remember to add a little extra pressure so the image comes out perfectly. I thought with this saying this card could be anything...a Christmas card, Thank You card, Get Well Card...just love it! Check out the entire stamp set below.


This stamp set has so many possibilities...

So Simple Christmas Cards

Well I know we haven't had Thanksgiving yet, but there is no time like the present to check off something on my Christmas To Do List...Christmas Cards. There are a couple people each year I like to send handmade Christmas cards to...Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, etc. They are the ones who really appreciate the love and creativity I put into them. However, since they all know each other and look at one another Christmas cards, I like to make them each a little different. Stampin' Up to the rescue. They have fabulous kits for Christmas cards this year. This one Merry Little Christmas Simply Created Card Kit 132158 spoke to me and so what did I do...placed an order :)

It comes with supplies for 8 cards and envelopes. You will need a stamp set & ink. See below for the sets I used. I followed the instructions for the first card and then took out some of my other Christmas/Holiday stamps and used them for the other cards (some may be retired).

I love that all these cards came from the same kit...and of course there are so many other possibilities!
Here are some close ups:

Above: Merry Little Christmas Stamp Set (recommended)
Below: Come to Bethlehem (retired)

Above: Endless Wishes (Photopolymer Stamp - totally clear..see through!)
Below: O Holy Night

The really cute envelope liners!! If it is not your thing you can always use it as extra paper on the front of your cards.

Well of course when I think I have come up with a good idea, I like to share it. So your invited to my Beginner's Night class this Wednesday where we will be making each card with envelope.
Hope to see you there!

Have a creative day!

Baby Katelyn

So I have shared a little already about my sister having her first baby girl (child #3). Well she had her! She is so beautiful and everyone is doing well adjusting.

I decorated some wood letters for her room last month and wanted to share them with you.

I used acrylic paint and gave each letter a couple coats. I do have a couple rollers with fun designs and I like to stamp on wood with. I love this scrolly/flower one and it matches some fabric my sister used in her nursery. I inked it up with versamark and then heat embossed it with white. Then I used Chocolate Chip ink to give it an antique look. It needed a little some extra on each letter so I made these flowers for each letter. Some have a large flower others have smaller flowers. I used some retired colors since they matched the paint color exactly! Love my Stampin' Up craft room, it always comes to the rescue!

Well of course she loved them! Wouldn't you?
Hope you have a creative day today too!

October's Paper Pumpkin

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin every month! It is so fun to see the bright orange box sitting in my mail box. This month project was perfect for do lists! I have those all around my house.

I especially loved the "notes" stamp and wanted to create a little something fun to go along with it. Here is a fun little Birthday Notes box to hold all the birthday cards given to my son/daughter during their birthday. I used a window sheet and my envelope builder punch board to make the box then decorated it with what else but the birthday designer series paper. I love how the window sheet is going to be more durable and will hopefully withstand my children's use. I also love the box being clear helps the cards stand out.

Did you know if you sign up for Paper Pumpkin with me you can receive more great ideas like this one each month. A group of fellow demonstrators and I have a blog the is exclusive to our Paper Pumpkin customers only with new ideas on different ways to use the one-of-a-kind stamps from that months kit.

Have a creative day!

Snowflake Wreath

I have had this idea in my head for a long time...
Sometimes ideas like this one stay there until they are forgotten...
Other times I can find the time to get it out and enjoy it...
I am so happy I took the time to make this I LOVE IT!

It is really similar to my spring time heart wreath I made earlier this year and I have loved that one so much that I had to make another one since I took the spring wreath down...didn't quite go with my Halloween decor...
Well now that Halloween is over...and snow is on the way...I can hang this one up.

Oh my gosh I just love it. I keep looking over at it on my door at least 10 times a day!
Here are some close ups:

We are making this wreath for Stamp Shoppe on Thursday this week. If you interested in coming you can leave a message here or email me @ for more information.

Hope you have a creative day!
