On Stage Events = Gift Time!!

When I attended Stampin' Up!'s On Stage event a few weeks ago, I shared a hotel with a couple friends.  Of course I had to give them a little gift because I love doing this little tradition!  I just realized I forgot to share it.  Oops!  So thought I better remedy that...

Here is the whole package with their fun little tag.  I had a little notebook and chocolate bar inside.

For the notebook, I barely did anything but I wanted to show the different just a few seconds can make.  I used the "Flourishing Phrases" stamp set, stamped it in Whisper White Craft ink, and then embossed with Whisper White embossing powder.  And That. Is. All. I. Did!  Check it out.  The notebook on the right is how I bought them.  And look at the fun little touch just one stamp can make!

And here is just the stamped notebook...

Then here is how I decorated the chocolate bar...

Used the Flourish Thinlit dies to cut out the black flourish, and just added a few other simple elements. 

Hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!

A Merry Wreath Time...

I don't know about your house, but we are in full "getting ready for Christmas" mode at our house!  Time to trim the tree and get all that decor up!  Well...I hung my big wreath on the door and it just looked "empty" to me.  We had our full inside of our house painted this past summer, and then also painted our outdoor shutters and door.  Guessing that is the reason it just looked "emptier" to me.  So thought a fun banner on the wreath would be fun!  So that's what I did!  Love that I can do so many thing with my Stampin' Up! supplies...and it saves me from having to go to the store....SUPER bonus!  :-)

It's Paper Pumpkin Time...Double Time!

It's no secret, I LOVE MY PAPER PUMPKIN KIT!  It's so much fun to get a crafting kit in the mail every month...all the prep work, thought work, etc taken care for you!  All you have to do is sit down and have some stress-free crafting time!  Also...I send out a card every month to my Paper Pumpkin subscribers...using the stamp set that comes with the kit for that month.  Thought I better share the last 2 cards I have sent...

This was the card from October...

I LOVE that crackle stamp!  I stamped it all over the cardstock piece.  Best part about it...I just messy stamped it.  Didn't try to line anything up, just stamped until cardstock was covered.  And it looked great every time!  It's a BEAUTIFUL stamp!

So fun, right?!  Also...I really like to see fun pretty stamp things in a pile when I'm all done, so here you go...

It's a double post is the card from November...

Love the cards sent in this months kit!  And so easy to keep on creating with your kit is all finished!  Just did some simple stamping here.  I stamped it all on Shimmery White cardstock so there is a fun shimmer in real life. Hard to get a photo of it, but I tried...

So what do you think?!  Hope you enjoy!  Let me know if you have any questions!
