Creative Card

Hello and Happy Friday!  I wanted to share this awesome card today that was created by my downline and friend Rayvin Lindsey for my team meeting last weekend. 

Isn't it awesome? 

I love what she did with our burlap ribbon.  The "corn" sure looks like Indian Corn to me - these were punched with the scallop oval punch from the Color Me Autumn designer series paper.   The green "husk" of the corn was created using the oval punch and simply cutting the shapes in half.  

The "Give Thanks" greeting is from the Good Greetings stamp set that is a special stamp set available til the end of October with a $300 order.  

Thanks Rayvin for sharing your card and creative talents with us!

Good to the last Bite

 Here is the second box in my pair of Tiny Treat boxes for Halloween.  

If you look closely you can see the two rhinestones added - they were colored with the darkest shade of Smoky Slate Blendabilities.  Little dracula's face is colored with Old Olive Blendabilities. 

Here's my little pair of tiny treat boxes all ready for Halloween!  The witch was shared yesterday in my post.  

Aren't they cute?  Like I said yesterday, these would be great for a co-worker, or a school party!

Tiny Treat Boxes for Halloween

 Love this cute little witch - and check out her broom! It is a small piece of the White and Tangerine Tango Two Tone Trim - I knotted it and then unraveled it so it looks like a broom, and used a glue dot to hold it in place! 

My witch from the Freaky Friends stamp set, was stamped with Memento Ink and colored with the Blendabilities.  The bats and Happy Halloween greeting are from the Holiday Home stamp set. 

I used the Oval framelits to cut her out - and attached her to a tiny treat box. 

Wouldn't this be a great treat for a school Halloween party - or to sit on a desk of co-workers on Halloween??  

The tiny treat boxes are a great deal - 25 boxes for just $6.95! 

Supplies for this project can be ordered through my online store by clicking on any of the images below -

Grateful Banner

 Welcome to this month's Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop where we are focusing on Gratitude and Thanksfulness!  I love this theme - I am truly blessed in so many ways- beautiful family, wonderful friends, good health, just to name a few! 

My project today is really simple and went together quickly! I thought it would be fun to create a "grateful" banner that I could use in my stampin' studio - that I have named "The Bee Spot."

Want to check out The Bee Spot? - click here 

I have a love for all things vintage and thought the banner was perfect for one of my stacks of vintage suitcases (I have several stacks of these!)  

To create the banner quickly and easily, I relied on my Big Shot and the Banner framelits.  

I cut several banners -  some in crumb cake cardstock, vanilla cardstock,  and some with the Typeset specialty designer series paper. 

On a few of the banners, I used a smaller banner framelit to stamp the letter on.  For the letters that are stamped on a rectangular shaped piece I did this - 

I used the photopolymer stamp set Larger Than Life Alphabet and Numbers -  using a clear block made it very easy to position my letters exactly where I wanted them.  Black ink used is the Memento Ink.

I wanted to add some sponging so the banner didn't look so pristine - baked brown sugar ink "dirtied and aged" the pieces.  If you don't like the vintage look - simply omit the sponging - and your banner would look like the piece below with the letter T on it.

Here is one more look at the banner - wouldn't this look cute with a pumpkin sitting on the suitcase stack?? 

Thanks for visiting today - I am grateful that you have "hopped" by!

Wonderful Weekend

 Where does the time go?    This photo is of my oldest daughter, Rachel, when she was four years old! I used the Cheers to Love stamp set and "dressed up" the frame!  And now we are preparing for her upcoming wedding in January! 

 We had a wonderful "all girl" weekend in Columbus to celebrate her upcoming wedding! 

Here we are together at her shower - isn't she a beauty?  Beautiful on the inside as well!  And soooo happy!

My sister and niece hosted the weekend, and here are a couple photos of the favors from the shower on Sunday - 

My sister made all of the "Dress forms" and we spent a day last week decorating them - what fun! Each one was a little different and everyone took one home with them. I created the special "Bride" one for Rachel.   

What a wonderful weekend filled with happiness, laughter, and tears as we celebrated the love between Rachel and her fiance' Gabe! 

Be sure to check back tomorrow for the Stamper's Dozen October Blog Hop!!
