Half Price Dies!!!

Here are the pins we made at camp last week. I wore my red sparkly one to shop at the mall and literally got stopped gobs of times as ladies commented on it! They are made with the Big Shot die and the Stampin' Up! fabric. Quick, cheap, easy and Fun!! Can't beat the combo....
For the next 48 hours - purchase one Big Shot die from me and get a second (lower priced) HALF PRICE! There is no limit, for each one you purchase, get a second for 50% savings.
Orders will need to be emailed to me as my webstore site will not give you the discount. Those of you who have the Big Shot - make sure to pass this special along to those who will be purchasing gifts for you!
Ready, Set, Shop!!

Decor Elements Meet Big Shot!

This project combines the magnet sheet and the chalkboard sheet that are made in rolls especially for use in the Big Shot.
We rolled it thru with the Top Note and made little message boards for the fridge.
That was an October project too - guess I was a little behind on posting!

One card - two looks

One of my oldest and dearest friends - and one of the most talented stampers I know! - gave me this fabulous card for a swap. I loved the way she chose winter colors - totally transforms the harvest look into a perfect card that doesn't scream FALL. I didn't have the papers she used, but we made the card with other colors at camp in October.
Love it.

Last of the Fall

November camp was last night - and with it our first flurries of the season!!

As I sat to get my Countdown to Christmas ready - I realised not all of my fall cards have been posted yet. So - I will get to that first.

This is a lovely shimmery card, used the clear block AS a stamp to make the shadow - the white craft pad rubbed on the embossing gives a nice frosted look.

Fall is my favorite....

Fall is my favorite season. The rest of the year I just make do with the rich colors and wait for it to roll around again. I could cheat and make some hot cider in March or bake some pumpkin bread in July - but I love to save it up, so all the special*ness happens at once.
Which means, when I first saw this set - I knew it was a must have! This stunning card was designed by my dear friend Theresa - and is a great reminder why I love this time of year.

met my friend Susan for lunch (Noble Romans deep dish mushroom pizza!) several days ago.
Girl Time
Delicious Lunch
AND she gave me cute cards
Winner all the way around!

Another October card

This card uses several new products - the spider web die for the big shot, the owl punch and the waffle paper.

My owl wanted to masquerade as a BAT! He is all decked out in his retro 70's gear!

The flower is so simple to do - we will do another one in gold for an upcoming Christmas card.

Project #2

French Foliage is the name of this new stamp set - especially love the largest leaf. Truly beautiful. You might be able to spot the Thankful decoration we made 2 or 3 years ago. I am sorely tempted to update it with new colors and new papers. I think this set would look fabulous on it. If time wasn't an option I would be doing it now!
This card also uses vanilla smoosh paint for extra shimmer.

August Specials are coming!

Keep checking this site over the next few days and into August. I will be having a drawing for the hostess set "Because I Care" ~ along with specials on items that were in my Try It clubs and select items to retrofit your collections with new colors!
Til then - enjoy these samples from the latest swap I participated in. I LOVE the mushrooms and am still trying to resist the order them. I love all things 70's - and I think they are more than a little of the 70's I love!

Try It Club

I did take pictures of each of the Designer Series Paper sets - will post those. The catalog swatches never do them justice!

Two more great Try It clubs will be coming up shortly - for the upcoming Holiday Mini!

I had fun dividing up this years Try It Club (with a little sense of regret - because they all filled and there was not a spot for me!) I tried to decide which paper was my fave...........that was hard!
