Spooky Cone

Wow ~ two weeks have past again without a post! For those of you who don't know, I started working again. It's just part time, but it's taking me and my family a little time to adjust to me being gone 8 hours a day, a couple of days a week. It's amazing what doesn't get done in those 8 hours. I think maybe they are realizing that I actually do more than just spend all my time in my craft room.

I have another cute Halloween project for you. This is one you'll want to give to those special little goblins. It was created using the Big Shot and the Bigz L Petal Cone Die. You will need to cut 2 cones. This die works best using the Extended Premium Crease Pad, cutting just one layer of paper at a time. Using the Crease Pad will ensure your fold marks are scored properly making assembling your cone a lot easier.

Before putting the cone together, I embossed each piece using the Spider Web Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Then to add a spooky touch, I used a Sponge Dauber with White Stampin' Pastels and gently rubbed over the spider web. You'll also want to add your Designer Buttons strung on Hemp Twine before assembling your cone. Use a bit of Sticky Strip to tape the end of the twine inside the cone. Just use it like regular tape, without removing the top protective plastic strip.

Now, you can assemble your cone. Decorate the flaps with Frightful Sight Designer Series Paper, add a Scallop Dot Ribbon handle, secured with Glimmer Brads and you're ready to fill it with Spooky Treats!

Once again, a project I couldn't have done without my Big Shot! Do you want one? Would you like to join my Team and get one for FREE? Do you already have one and want $100 FREE product of your choice? There's only a few more days for you to take advantage of this great incentive! I would love to have you on my Team of talented stampers. Contact me today and we'll get your *Big Shot or *$100 FREE product on it's way so you can get started on all your Holiday projects!
*You will receive your Big Shot or $100 Free product in addition the Starter Kit you choose.

Holiday Trio

Aren't they adorable! This is the Holiday Trio we made in class yesterday. These were made with the Big Shot, the Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die, a few Punches and some fun Embellishments.

These Fancy Favor Boxes are perfect for little candy treats, small gifts and gift cards. Or, you can just hang them on your Christmas tree! They are simple to make and pretty economical too. You can cut 2 boxes from 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock. Just imagine the smiles from an elementary classroom when these little guys are passed around filled with Holiday treats.

And, right now, if you want to get your Big Shot for FREE, you can! Join my Team of talented stampers during the month of October, and your new Big Shot will come to your door with your New Starter Kit. Just in time for your Holiday crafting!

Out on a Limb

A couple of weekends ago I spent the entire weekend with seven of my stamping friends. We had an organized swap where we each created 5 cards and 3 other projects to trade. Then throughout the weekend we stamped tons of cards and several more projects. We rented the meeting room in a hotel, hauled our stamping supplies in, filling the room, and stamped the days and nights away!

Here's a picture of all the things we did!

I have so many things to share. I'll start with an adorable Halloween card created with the Out on a Limb Stamp Set. I love this cute little witch, flying over the roof top. The moon was made by punching a hole with the 2-1/2" Circle Punch and layering Vellum behind it. It's even more adorable when you put a battery operated tea light behind it!

There's also several promotions for the month of October. If you've been thinking about joining my Team, you can get a Free Big Shot when you do! Looking for a fun Holiday Gift? Try our brand new Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps! Do you know someone who likes stamping, but doesn't know where to start? Another great gift idea are the Simply Sent Card Kits. During the month of October, when you buy 2 kits, you get a coordinating stamp set Free! Click on the links, or contact me for more information about any of these great deals.
