Is there Halloween fever in your house? A His and Hers treat box/bag - not really a box, and it's not a bag either as there's no handle so hence bag/box! Elaine's logic! tehee! I can see my children rolling their eyes and saying "oh Mum!"
Quite sad that this will be 2015's last Halloween project but I shall look forward to next year while this year's collection takes a rest!
Wish my grand children lived closer - would love to go trick & treating with them!
What a discovery this Peaceful Pines Bundle has been -it's been on my to-do list like forever, and once I started using it, I couldn't stop! I teamed it with the cutie pie die cutting set - which compliments the Sweet Stack Project Kit. I had mixed reactions from my team and customers about the cake boxes, but if you up end it, they make wonderful table favours for christmas. In fact, for any season just by changing the colours you use and the embellishments you use. Enjoy the video!
These teeny tiny witches' hats were the brainchild of a Demonstrator from the US, if memory serves me right, she shared them at Founders Circle, a rather revered, elite group of top Demos, none other than the talented Janet Baker. I just had to have a go myself, and if you haven't seen it yet, this video replicates her creation with just a tiny amendment from me. Thank you Janet! Enjoy!
The catalogues for Stampin' Up! aren't just a catalogue, they're also full of ideas and inspiration and many of you have wondered how those 3D stars were made. At the US Convention in July, Pam Morgan demoed how to do it so today's video is a visual to make it easier for you to follow!
I've added some extra measurements in my blog post below as promised in the video. Enjoy!
If you wish to make larger or smaller stars, here are the measurements for cutting the depth in each cross section.
12" square, cut to depth of 2-1/2" (6.4 cm)
11" square, cut to depth of 2-1/4" (5.7 cm)
10" square, cut to depth of 2" (5 cm)
9" square, cut to depth of 1-7/8" (4.8 cm)
8" square, cut to depth of 1-5/8" (4.2 cm)
7" square, cut to depth of 1-1/2" (3.8 cm)
6" square, cut to depth of 1-1/4" (3.2 cm)
5" square, cut to depth of 1" (2.5 cm)
4" square, cut to depth of 3/4" (1.9 cm)
3" square, cut to depth of 5/8" (1.6 cm)
I'm excited and looking forward to seeing some of my team today for our quarterly team training this morning. Today's post is a little later than usual - I didn't want to ruin the surprise with the swaps I made for this quarter's training session.
This stamp set seems to have gone under the radar - so I thought it needed a shout!
Any bird fanciers out there? I googled "Red Cardinal" to see what it looked like and it is so aptly named - a vibrant red, with jet black around its beak, and the beak itself was also bright red!
I've borrowed a photo so you can see for yourself!
Uh Oh! Did that get your attention? Lol! Not the medical kind, my phobia for needles hasn't abated! I found these fun syringe pens and thought they'd be great as an alternative to giving away sweets during Halloween! The kiddie winks can choose to have sweets too, but I LOVE these!....and I've even got a spare re-fill to put in their packets! Enjoy!
What's your verdict? The Black Glimmer spooky letter, or plain black? hmmmm..... I think the black glimmer - need to use it up, when else could I use it except for Halloween.
Do you like Shaker cards, or are they too much hassle to even have a go? Take a look at Stampin' Up!s Shaker Card Kit and I'm sure you'll change your mind. These were fun to do, and you can make so many more than the 18 cards by adding card stock of your own.
On the bottom right, the three cards were made according to the instructions. I added some of my own card stock to make even more with some of the elements provided in the kit.
Can you spot a couple of extra tree ones I made to get even more mileage out of this kit? Will do another post when I have a chance to have another play.
Well look at what the bride sent me! Hand delivered by my lovely downline Petra, from Danni who is also her sister in Germany! Danni made all the wedding favours herself. I thinks it's gorgeous - so not labour intensive but packs such a WOW!
This is what was inside, but I still can't bring myself to open it!
and here's the "thank you" card I sent her!
I'm loving the heavier weight Whisper White card stock - they only come in packs of 24 sheets same as our coloured card stock but great for stamping on directly just as the standard Whisper White A4s which come in packs of 40 sheets.
I used the thicker Whisper White for my card base, the standard Whisper White for my card front layer which I stamped in mint macaron with the Brushstrokes stamp.
A variety of flowers stamped from the Pictogram and Something to Say and punched out with the itty bitty accents punch. The leaves were stamped tone on tone in Mint Macaron, fussy cut and adhered as pictured.
