Thankful Treat Bags and more!

I am blessed to have some pretty amazing friends! I am still a newbie in the blog world. (I just started blogging in July.)  I know I have a lot to learn and I really appreciate everyone who has reached out to help me!  I enjoy sharing my projects and interacting with people who love paper crafting as much as I do. I asked my friends to share my blog on their facebook page.  I made some treat bags and cards to thank them for helping me reach out to new crafters.

Stampin’ Up! Kraft bags

The Kraft Tag a Bag Gift Bags (item # 13815) measure 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 and are perfect for tucking in a standard sized card, gift, and/or treat. You get 10 bags for $3.50.  The leaves and stamp set I used on the tag are from the October 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love getting my paper pumpkin kits in the mail each month and use the stamp sets and ink for other projects long after I have completed the kit.  Paper Pumpkin is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys crafts or for someone just starting out stamping. Everything you need to put the projects together is in the kit… including an exclusive stamp set and different ink color each month.  It’s a great way to build up a stamp supply and assorted ink colors. Here’s a peek at the November Paper Pumpkin kit. It is gorgeous!!

This kit is amazing and my mind is already racing with some alternative ideas to make using this kit!  I love how the die cuts are layered for a 3D effect. If you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber you can get refill kits which include everything except the stamp set and ink. During Online Extravaganza, Stampin’ Up! is offering big discounts on some past kits! From now until November 28, you can stock up and save 20 – 40% on some of your favorite kits. Tell your friends too-these kits are available for everyone to purchase.  It’s a great way to try Paper Pumpkin.paper-pumpkin-online-extravaganza

Hello December Class Kit

One of the events at World Card Making Day in Atlanta was a Make & Take using the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack.  I confess I had never tried Project Life.  (I was a Creative Memories consultant for many years before I started stamping and I love their scrapbooks!)  My eyes were opened to new possibilities as we played with the Project Life kit. Who knew you could make cards as well as scrapbook pages with these kits?!  This is what I made with the kit and some Stampin’ Up! Note Cards & Envelopes.

6 gift tags made with the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Collection and Accessory Pack
16+ cards made with the Hello December 2016 Project Life Collection

I was amazed at all that comes in the kit (including an exclusive stamp set). I still have many items left to play with and use even after making all these cute cards and tags.  And I know I will use the stamp set on other projects (and journal boxes in my scrapbooks).

3D Swaps from World Card Making Day

I am late posting today because I am just getting back from Atlanta and the most amazing weekend!  My mind is on inspiration overload!  I wish I could take a week off and just create!  My sister asked me what was my favorite thing from the Stampin’ Up! weekend events and I didn’t even have to think about my answer…it was the people!  I was surrounded by so many wonderful and talented people and we had a blast! Brian King and Pam Morris hosted World Card Making Day on Friday and I met so many wonderful and creative people and made many new friends! One of the first things we did on Friday was a 3D Swap.  Everyone made a little gift and we walked around and mingled until we were told to stop and swap with the person closest to you.  Here’s my 3D swap.


I used a 12 x 12 piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP to make this treat holder. You can click HERE to see my previous post with the directions.  I figured the recipient could sit this on their table and have something sweet to enjoy all weekend.

I received this cute handmade box filled with chocolates.  YUM!

Here’s a few pictures from World Card Making Day and some of the other 3D swaps.

I was so excited to meet the infamous WCMD hosts, Pam Morris and Brian King !
My wonderful friend and upline, Susan Itell.
Look at this awesome candy train made by Joanna!
Karen made an adorable box and gift tags!
What a cool idea for a countdown to Christmas!
Great way to dress up a tissue box!  Change the DSP for different holidays.
Gorgeous ornament!
Quick & easy colorful ornament using strips of DSP.
I love this curvy keepsake ornament!
Beautiful homemade decor!




Here are some more great ideas showing how you can frame your creations for Holiday decor and/or gifts.



Now you can see why I am on inspiration overload! And this was just one of the events! Friday night I went to dinner with some of the members of our team.  These are “my people”!

Joanna Latham, me, Rosanne Mulhern, Susan Itell, Bridget Trefethen, Karen Hallam

I will be sharing more inspiration and photos from all the events later this week so be sure to check back.
