SEPTEMBER STAMP CAMP SNEAK PEEK


NEW HOST CODE:  4AGPNC44

Hello, Stampers!
     Just a quick post to give a peek at one of the cards we will be creating at Stamp Camp on Saturday, September 21.  I came across a similar idea online (of course), but with a Pigment Sprinkles background.   I have shown the primary products below and will go into more detail when I post after Stamp Camp.  Be sure to RSVP if you would like to attend!


Happy Stampin’!

IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START PREPARING FOR CHRISTMAS! and STAMPIN' UPDATES and TIPS



Hello, Stampers!
     Some of you are probably surprised to hear from me because right now we are supposed to be in Nova Scotia on a tour.  Long story short, hurricane Dorian resulted in our flight to Halifax from Toronto being cancelled on Saturday, and I wasn't able to book flights for Sunday before they were sold out, although I'm not sure if they would have flown as scheduled, either.  
     Anyway, above is a little stop-motion video to nudge you toward deciding what you'd like to create for the holidays, because we know it's never too early to start if you want to create your own holiday cards!  No, I haven't forgotten about Fall and Thanksgiving.  ;-)  
     Speaking of creating, Paper Pumpkin usually has some great Fall and Christmas ideas to speed things along.  (I hope you were able to sign up for your PP Halloween treats kit this month!)

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW... FOR HALLOWEEN - COFFIN TREAT BOXES FROM THE 2019 HOLIDAY CATALOG!



Hi, Stampers!
     I recommend the September Paper Pumpkin kit for your quick treat-making, of course, but I had my heart set on using these coffin boxes from the Holiday Catalog for the holiday treats I usually pass out to the folks in my spin class - death by chocolate!
     The boxes go together easily with Multipurpose Glue or Tear & Tape (or Fast Fuse) - all scored and cut for you - just decorate as you wish!  Here, I embossed the lids and on the right one I used the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.  I lightly brushed it with the new Golden Glitz Delicata Metallic Ink Pad, as well.  I got the embossing idea from CreatewithChristy on YouTube.
      Unfortunately, I have very few of the new Halloween items from the Holiday Catalog, so I went with what I had and even resorted to printing my own!  More info here.  Frankly, it would be a lot easier with the Monster Bash Bundle (love those frames), but...   LOL

Happy Stampin’!

SIMPLE WATERCOLOR MAGNOLIA and a Reminder

Hi, Stampers!
     I hope you enjoy a pleasant Labor Day and that you have lovely weather for what is considered summer's last hurrah.  :-(   But, one good thing about September, besides that it's usually a beautiful month, it's Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog time!  The HC is open for business on Wednesday, September 4.   Okay, to this card...
     I saw the original of this card on Pinterest by Debbie Henderson - I like hers better, but thought I'd share mine, anyway, 'cause it's still pretty, I think.  I don't think you can exactly duplicate with water-coloring - either you've got it (the talent) or you don't - I'm somewhere in between I think.
     Anyway, click here or the photo for the details.  TFL


Happy Stampin’!
