Play Date Projects






I have really been having fun with the Play Date DSP. This is a set of picture frames I created using frames bought at the Dollar Store. The frame with the four animals was cased from a card I found on another blog - silly me did not save the link.

I love the Lollipop Flowers on one of the pages in this sample, but didn't want t waste an entire 12x12 sheet from this pack to cut one out - so I made my own using the Circles #2 Die from SU and Sizzix. I have a few workshops to prepare for this week, so it might be awhile before you see me back here :)

Have a great week everyone!

12 x 12 September Club Page #2



I am absolutely in love with the new two step Owl Punch and the Playdate Designer Paper! This was the 2nd 12 x 12 page that we made at the other night's club. I am pretty fond of the retired Epoxy Brads too, sure wish those had made it into the new Idea Book and Catalog....

A Wicked Cool Halloween



As a true New Englander when I first saw (sawr!) this new set by Stampin' Up! I had to get my hands on it right away! :) Love it! Still waiting for my new paper order with my Halloween DSP ~ the reason for the non-SU paper....I just can't hold off any longer!

Design A House








Here is my first attempt at the new Design A House from Stampin' Up!

I am still waiting for my most recent paper order to arrive but couldn't wait to give this house a try, so I used paper I had on hand from a previous class. The plan is to gift it to a friend who seems to be in need of cheering up. Cards are great to get in the mail, but haunted houses are even better at this time of the year! I am still working on the Gingerbread house that will be far more involved and detailed so is taking a bit longer to complete, but pictures will be up soon.

I had a little trouble getting the Sticky Strip to adhere in the humid New England heat wave we had last weekend, so had to try a couple different techniques to keep it together. My next attempt will definitely involve the hot glue gun. My favorite thing about Stamping is how easy it is to cover mistakes. Once it was completed, you can hardly tell where the boo-boos are.

Thanks for stopping by today to see what's new!

Stampin' Up!'s Table Setting Die










This place setting was created for a class I am offering in October. The set includes a gift box, a place setting for six including napkin rings, place cards, and favor tags along with enough die cut leaves to scatter across your table or use to accent a centerpiece. Class will be held on October 2nd at Life's Memories and More. Call to reserve your space!
