Global Stamping Friends Hop 14

Hello and welcome to another great Global Stamping Friends blog hop. I truly look forward to this blog post every month because there are so many talented demos around the world participating. This month is all about Halloween and can you believe it, it will be here at the end of the month.

This is the fun 3×3 card that I created using the amazing Spooky Night Designer Series Paper that coordinates with the great cat stamp set. I finally got some ink on my owl stamp set and I am so loving how this turned out.

I also had so much fun creating the inside and using a few other types of stamps in the set too! I used Lemon Lime Twist (a new in color) and Pacific Point for the potion colors. I may have to do some more cards with just these potions. Also I absolutely love the witches hat too in this set.. Clearly I just love this set and I highly recommend you getting it before Halloween (which is coming up quick).

So if you love this card and project I have a super special for you. I am starting a Freebie Friday at least until Christmas (we will see how this goes) and you can get the following items as long as you place an order through my online store above.

 

 

If you enjoyed this project and want to purchase any of the products make sure that you are shopping with me and you can easily get to my online store by using the tabs at the top. Also make sure to use this month’s hostess code if you are under $150

Also a reminder to subscribe to my blog because I am participating in a 31 day blog challenge. I have a lot of great things planned for this month and I hope that you will enjoy them. You can also follow me on social media

Paper Flock Hop: Fall in 3D

Hello!!! And welcome to our first ever Paper Flock Hop! This hop is comprised of Phyllis Shepherd’s Stampin’ Up! Team members and I am so excited to share all the creations that we have came up with. For the first ever theme we are doing Fall in 3D and show casing items that you can use for fall. I hope you will join us from here on out and make sure to hop along to everyone.

For my project I decided to create a fun box that you could give away at your Halloween party. These would be so great for all the treats you want to hand out. I learned how to create this fun box at the Quarterly NC demonstrator event that I went to. We will also be doing something similar to these at my Retreat in October.

So what you will need to do is take a 6X6 sheet of paper. Using the envelope punch board (item #133774) punch and score on 3 sides at 2 and 4 inches. on the 4th side just punch at the same measurements. You then cut the top of the treat box so that it is flush with the rest of the box (basically the top triangle). And then cut the opposite side on the score lines to the end of the score. You then just put the box together and use your favorite adhesive to stick it all together. If you enjoyed this project I will do a Facebook Live video in my VIP Group that you are welcome to join.

If you want to join our hop you can either join Phyllis’ team or my team and you will be invited to join. Our next few hops are as follows:

I hope you have enjoyed this project and will continue to hop along. Up next is

Spotlight: Vintage Crochet Trim

I am very excited to be joining another blog hop. This week’s blog hop is with a great group of Demonstrators that are striving to reach the Greek Isles Incentive trip! If you want to join me on this amazing trip I would love to hear from you! I am using this door as my inspiration since my quote this year was “Doors will open for those brave enough to knock.” How true is that!!

So today we are focusing on the Crochet Trim which is sooooo great and easy to work with. I needed to whip up these tags so I was able to kill 2 birds with 1 stone!! Yay for productivity. These tags would be great for a bottle of wine for a friend, attached to coffee also as a gift, or even as party favors for a Halloween party. They were also super quick and easy to put together with the Copper Embossing powder taking the most time.

I had seen a few weeks ago the idea from one of our Artisian Designers that they used a small thinlit from a different set to create a hole. I used this same concept above. Can you guess which set I used for the hole?? Hint: There are a lot of hot air balloons in it, comment below if you know the answer. I also used our Washi Tape which I absolutely love!

I hope that you enjoyed this project. I am excited for you to continue hoping on!

Also I have a lot of events planned for the next few months and I would love for you to be part of them. One of the events is my retreat. This will be a great day to come and relax and create some projects. I always love choices and I want to ensure that you have choices when you create a project so you will be able to tailor everything to you. I also know that budgets are always tight soo I priced this to be only $40. Make sure that you share this special event with your friends because if you bring a friend you both will get to make a special project that only bring a friends can do.

Speaking of specials did you know that this exclusive stamp set could be yours when you host a qualifying party? How cute is this! Ready to book your party today? Make sure to email me info @papergears.com ( I add the space to remove all the spam that gets sent)

Finally if you are putting in a purchase this month please make sure to use my hostess code on any orders placed under $150.

I hope you have a wonderful evening and thank you so much for stopping by. Make sure to hop along!

The next one on the list is Teresa Snyder-Granberry

I love that Stampin’ Up! produces such high quality and on trend products for us to use.

Ahhhh if only I had no budget and I could spend whatever I wanted to I would just buy the whole catalog (wish there was an item number for that) but alas we all always have a budget..

Time is limited though and you must let me know by September 8 if you want to purchase a share. I have to have at least 4 people join in order to place the order. I will place the order and once I receive all the products and cut everything down I will mail them out to you.

Oct 16 Scrapbook page #2

A couple of days ago I posted about having a scrapbook page and how easy it was to create. This is my second page that I created and I really love this one too. Again I used my amazing spider web 12×12 spider web page because it would have been so difficult to cut it up but now I can leave it in its full beauty.  Who knew scrapbooking could be so easy? Are you ready to start saving all those memories and printing off all those pictures and having them easily shown to all your friends and family? What about wanting to keep them for future generations.

The Busy Woman Episode 1

If you are viewing this in your email please visit my website to ensure you see all photos and videos correctly.

If you are like me you are always on the run and sometimes our best intentions get put to the side because well life just gets in the way. Being inspired by that I am starting a new series called “The Busy Woman” and it is meant for any one that considers themselves.. well busy. This first post is all about making fun Halloween treats using the Jar of Haunts. Super quick and easy and will make sure that you stay sane on Halloween night.. or that your husband has an easy time handing out the candy. This would also be great to share with your co-workers at work, PTA meetings, book club, or wherever.

 

I would love to see your ideas so please share them with me! Make sure to follow me on Facebook so that you never miss a LIVE broadcasting. Also would love to know who you would love to leave a bag of treat for. Make sure to comment below.
Happy Stamping

Halloween 12 X 12 Project

If you are viewing this in  your email you could be missing the picture. Please visit my website to see picture of the project

Halloween is almost here and the biggest question is are you ready? This fun project will be used for decoration in our home and it was really easy to make. This is one of the projects that you can make if you attend one of my classes or you can CASE (Copy and selectively edit) this project. I used our amazing Halloween Night Designer Series Paper (DSP) that gave me so many different options along with our fun Jar of Haunts. I was also able to use the shiny paper in the back ground while not having to actually cut it. If you are like me it is sometimes so hard to actually cut and use our DSP and all I want to do is hoard it, this allowed me to truly display it and be proud of it.

I cut out my grey and orange background pieces to be 3×3 inch pieces. I also wanted to use each pieces of the DSP both front and back. I love the haunted house scene and felt that it could stand alone. My other favorite aspect of this project is the scared mummy jar so I picked DSP that just had some fun more background aspects to it. I also cut out my 31 in our orange glimmer paper so that it would give it some extra sparkle.

This is also my 1 year celebration week with Stampin’ Up! and it has been a crazy amazing journey! I have learned so much about me and this company and I am just getting more excited each day that goes by. Make sure to check out my Facebook page and like it so that you can be in on all the daily give-aways that I have going on this week.

I love this business and that it gives me the outlets to become creative and that I can share this with you. If you are interested in joining my team I would love to talk to you about it! I love supporting my team in whatever their dreams are: whether it is becoming the next million dollar Stampin’ Up! demonstrator or being a Hobby Demonstrator that enjoys the awesome discounts and getting their hands on product early to everything in between.

If you would like to purchase any of these great products please use my online store link where you can securely purchase all the products and have them shipped directly to you. Also please use this month’s hostess code if your order is below $150.
