Happy Halloween! I can hardly wait to see my 3 nephews and niece in their Halloween costumes later today. I think the best part about Halloween is the kids.

This is the banner that we made a my Halloween class a couple weeks ago. It was a lot of fun and I think all the ladies loved the projects we made...and of course the chocolate! I got the idea from Kimberly Van Diepen's blog. She is absolutely inspiring and you should definitely check out her blog. Each participant in the class did something different with their banner and I'm happy to report that I've been to my parents house and my mom has her banner already hanging by the fire place. The designer paper used is Wicked Fun and the stamp sets were Wicked Cool and Dark & Dreary. I hope you like and thanks for checking in

My Christmas Stamp-a-Stack is a little over a week away. I'm giving you a preview of 3 of the 4 projects that we'll be working on. It's on Saturday November 6th from 1-4 but may open another time or date if I find there is a lot of interest. The cost is $35 ($25 for club members). If you bring a friend that has never been to one of my classes before you'll receive a special gift. At the Stamp-a-Stack you'll be making 4 of each of the card designs and 4 of the gift tags as well as 4 of a surprise project. If you are interested please feel free to email me at

Dasher is back

Good morning Stampers,

So, how long do you think before it starts snowing? It's been so cold lately and I refuse to turn the heat on just yet so we've been lighting a lot of candles.
I'm back using up more of the retired Christmas Cocoa DSP. I cased this idea from another Demo but I can't find her name or blog anymore so I'm really sorry to not acknowledge who the idea came from but just know that this is not my original idea.
Hope you enjoyed and thanks for looking.

Chilly day

Hey There,
What a chilly Sunday. A good day to stay inside curled up on the couch sipping hot chocolate or if your like me, it's a good day to lock yourself in your craft room with some tea. Today I'm working on getting some ideas together for a Halloween class and a Christmas one so stay tuned for those.
Today's card is using some retired DSP that I'm trying to use up. I love this stamp set Winter Post. I've made 10 of these cards for my Aunt's Open House craft sale that she holds every November. You can't really tell in the picture but the trees have dazzling diamonds on them to add a little sparkle. I hope you like. Thanks for stopping by.

Swap Card

Good afternoon friends,

Last Saturday I spent the day in Hamilton at the Stampin Up Regionals. It was so much fun. We did 6 make n' takes and actually finished making them all. 2 years ago at the last one I was at my upline Tammy and I didn't finish all of them so we were quite proud of ourselves this year. There was also another exciting surprise, the CEO Shelli Gardner herself was there. It was like seeing a celebrity.
This was the swap card that I made for the event. I used the same stamp set I showed you yesterday. I made 40 of these cards, 30 to swap and then 10 for a craft sale I will be in. I think it could use some sparkle, what do you think? Thanks for checking in.
