New - Festive Flurry Ornament Kit!

Stampin' Up! just announced this kit today! You can watch the video to see how easy they've made it to make these beautiful ornaments (or tag for present, or accent for a card)! For $17.95, you get all the supplies to make 10 ornaments... all you need to add is glue! I wouldn't be surprised if these sell out fast, so don't wait too long to order! Item #135813

Joyful Christmas Monochromatic Card

This card is simply beautiful...thanks so much to Natasha Zandbergen for sharing on her blog! I thought it was perfect for new (or time-limited) stampers and perfect for my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack later this month! At my Stamp-a-Stack, you'll make four of this card and four of four other designs, for a total of 20 cards! This card would also be a good one to make if you don't have a lot of supplies on hand, and have to buy supplies for your cards this year.

It uses only five items (other than adhesive):

Smoky Slate card stock
Whisper White card stock
Joyful Christmas stamp set
Smoky Slate ink pad
1/8" Silver Ribbon

You can order these items in my online store and they'll ship right to you!

Endless Wishes + Chalk Talk = Cute & Fun!

This is one of the cards we're making in my Simple Holiday Cards Class this weekend (eight cards - 2 each of four designs) and I hope that Endless Wishes is available again (so popular Stampin' Up! sold out of their supply in about a week). I love these colours together (Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Ripple and Crumb Cake) and I love the way this card turned out... The snowflakes from the set are stamped onto a Chalk Talk tag and I added a thin strip of Silver Glimmer paper too. A knot of Raspberry Ripple stitched ribbon and a couple Rhinestones finish the card off! There is still room in the classes if you want to make this card!

October Paper Pumpkin Bonus Cards

When I receive my Paper Pumpkin each month I challenge myself to create some alternate projects with the supplies (you can see past projects if you click the Paper Pumpkin tag at the end of this post). I send the supplies, instructions and photos to everyone who has subscribed to the kit through me so they can make them too! This month I felt more challenged than normal when I opened up my box... this was the project included in the kit:
It's a very cute (and easy to put together) memo board. However, there wasn't anything left over or even papers I could cut apart to use on my alternate projects. There were only word stamps too, which made it even more challenging for me. After some Google-ing, I found my inspiration (gotta love Stampin' Connection and demonstrators who share) and came up with these three bonus cards:

I'm happy with what I came up with, and hope you like them too!
