13 Projects for Fall/Halloween-Project #2: Halloween Pumpkin Card

     Hello and welcome back to my blog and my 13 Projects for Fall/ Halloween event. Today I have a really cute card for you with a bunch of pumpkins telling you"Thank You." I came up with this idea the minute I saw this stamp set in the new 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog. This catalog will be available in just a few days, Sept 1st, to all customers! I highly suggest purchasing this bundle because not only is it good for Halloween, but also Fall and Thanksgiving as well. And who just doesn't love a pumpkin?      I first started with using the Wood Crate Framelits to die cut the crate out from the Wood DSP (Designer Series Paper) stack. I only needed the front of the crate so I positioned the die over the paper as not to waste any and cut out anything unnecessary. I then stamped a bunch of the pumpkins from the Pick a Pumpkin stamp set and die cut them as well.      Now this is pretty cool. You will notice when you get your catalog or view it on my Stampin&

Aim for Alaska Stampin' Up! New 2017 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Blog Hop

     Welcome and hello everyone!  Today I have a special post for Aim for Alaska Blog Hop Sneak Peak from the new Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday Catalog! That's right. You will get to see a whole bunch of blog posts from varies members of the Aim for Alaska group with new product from the new catalog! Now, I am sure if you have been strolling Pinterest by now you have seen a few of the new stamp sets, punches, dies, and DSP (Designer Series Paper). Aren't they pretty? Especially the new Painted Harvest Bundle! That has been a huge hit in the demonstrator world.      But today I decided to use one of the other stamp sets that I just fell in love with...the Merry Cafe stamp. And the best part is it coordinates with the Coffee Cups Framelits! So no fussy cutting! There is a little something for every holiday season on this stamp set too, but I especially loved the Pumpkin Spice Latte stamp. It is a cult following for this specialty drink. I have had it only once,

13 Projects for Fall/Halloween - Project 1: Watercolored Sunflower Card

     Hi everyone! Welcome to my 13 Projects for Fall/Halloween event. Now, to start off, I want to apologize for my not blogging for the last two months. Some of you may know from past blogs that I suffer from Chronic Pain, but that has not been the issue this time. Approximately mid May I started having stomach issues...pain, vomiting, nausea, etc. It steadily became worse and worse and finally I was unable to do anything except lay down and sleep. I got to see a specialist earlier this month, and along with changing my heartburn meds, they have scheduled me to have a camera put down my throat and into my stomach to see what is going on. The pain and vomiting as settled a bit, but the nausea has continued and I have very little appetite. It has been no fun that is for sure.      So, I'm sorry for not having any blog posts. I did, however, enjoy ordering from the new Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog the first of this month, a wonderful demonstrator benefit and now I have some f
