"Thankfulness" Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop

Hello,

GV Blog Header

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for September!! I'm so excited to participate in this amazing blog hop with my fellow Mediterranean Achiever Demonstrator's from around the world!! This month our theme is the Thankfulness as it is our last hop for the Mediterranean Trip. Next month those that have earned the trip to Thailand in 2017 will be hopping each month. We are so excited to share the many ways we are "Thankful for" and be prepared to be inspired with a variety of projects and products!!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Anne's blog.

My project that I created for today's blog was a designed around the new Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and the coornidating Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. These two items along with the Cookie Cutter Christmas are my top favourites from the Holiday Catalogues. The images are so adorable and there is so much you can do with these adorable little characters!!

I thought this Scarecrow image was perfect for this time of year. We are entering my favourite season FALL!! I love everything that Fall has to offer, the beautiful colours in the trees, the cooler days, the yummy pumpkin and apple desserts, and more time spent with family inside. There are the many things that I'm thankful for at this time of year. We will be celebrating "Thanksgiving" here next weekend and I have a lot to be thankful for this year: my family, my health, my friends, my amazing Stampin' Up! business, and all the support from my family, friends and customers.

I love that paper, ink and stamps has brought us together as one big family where we enjoy spending time with each other creating beautiful gifts from the heart to give to family and friends. It's their enthusiastic that keeps me going and for that I'm thankful for!! I know that joining Stampin' Up! almost 10 years ago was one of the best decisions that I ever made and I look forward to the next 10 years...thank you!!!

I coloured my little scarecrow using the following colours: Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Dapper Denim, Soft Suede and Tangerine Tango markers. These colours say "Fall to me". I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper for my circle that I cut out with my Big Shot and the Layering Circle framelits. I love layering my elements and thought it would be great to have a frame behind the scarecrow, that was creating using the Layering Square Framelits and the Big Shot machine!!

Another Cherry Cobbler circle, some copper metallic thread and some Pumpkin Pie Enamel dots was the finishing touches on my card. I love this little greeting from the One Meaning stamp set...A little Thanks!!!

Thanks for stopping by our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at here at Anne's blog, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun on the rest of the blog hop!!

Vintage Leaves

Hello,

We had so much fun last night at our Simply Occasions class! Thank you to everyone that came up to stamp with us, it as a great night of chatting and of course eating yummy chocolate from the Candy bar!!

One of the cards that we made last night was a CASE from the Annual catalogue on page 37. The Concept Artists at Stampin' Up! do a fabulous job creating a variety of samples to showcase in each of the catalogues. Sometime, I find myself turning to the pages in the catalogue looking for inspiration for a project. Maybe it's a colour scheme that I like or a layout that has got my eye, either way it's a great resource for inspiration!!

 I think what caught my attention on this card was the greeting stamped on vellum and then layered on top of the leaves. I feel this gives the card a soft look to it and this is one card that you can use for many different occasions. I actually switched up the greeting on this card, as sometimes it's nice to have cards on hand that you can send as "Just because" so you can let a friend know you are thinking of them!!

Halloween Scares Treat Boxes

Hello,

I love this time of year when the fall decoration start to make their appearances on houses, the leaves are changing colours, the weather is starting to cool off and the aisles are LOADED with Halloween Treats galore!! It makes it very hard to shop down those aisles and not buy chocolate! But it's the best time of the year to stock up on treats for creative treat holders!!

My project today is a CASE from the Holiday Catalogue and you can find it on page 50. As soon as I saw these fun treat holders, I knew that I wanted to CASE some for my displays in my studio. Plus they will make great treats to hand out to family and friends on Halloween!!

I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper to create my belly band around the Tiny Treat Boxes. Then using the Black Ombre Ink pad and the Haunted House from the Halloween Scares stamp set, I stamped my haunted house and fussy cut it out. I added a pumpkin and the work "Eek" to finished off the front of my house to make it look spooky!!

Cookie Cutter Christmas Baker Box

Hello,

Today, I'm sharing one of the projects that I made for my Christmas Display that we had at the Western Fair. My focus for my display was the new Candy Cane Suite and all the fun things you can do with these products. Our inspiration for the display came from the Holiday Catalogue on page 4.

My project today uses the Baker Box Thinlit dies to create an adorable Cookie Cutter Santa treat holder. This treat holder is the perfect size to be filled with a gift card, chocolate, bake goodies, money or candy. Actually the idea's that you could put in here are endless!!

Isn't he the cutest thing ever? The Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle is one of my favourite in the Holiday Catalogue. I can't stopped used them...those little images are so cute!! I stamped my image on Shimmery White paper with Black Archival ink and let it dry for a bit. Then once it was dried, I coloured him using my real red, blushing bride and black ink pads and my blender pen!! The sweet greeting is from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set!! I can't wait to create a bunch of these to sell at my upcoming events!!
