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

Image
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' Up! s…

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

Welcome and hello everyone! Today I have a special post for you...an 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, but I fell…

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

Image
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 fun a…
