Aaaah, another blatant CAS, this time from the faboo Dawn Griffith. At least this time I swapped a lot of the elements out!
I'm going to drop this one in the "sympathy" box. What's really funny to me about this card, is, back when it was still called "Kraft," Crumb Cake CS was my go-to cs for card bases - I just couldn't stay away! After it made its leap to official-dom as Crumb Cake, I slowed way down on using it, so strange. This card is actually the first time I cracked open my Crumb Cake ink ever! Crazy!

Ah, a Christmas card designed with using up some retired scraps in mind! CAS-ed this one from Renee van Stralen - I've wanted to use the bird die from the Holiday Movers & Shapers for forever! And the glitter paper, too. I can't tell you how many times I've fallen in love with something new and awesome from SU, and then I can't bear to actually use it - I must HOARD it, til that perfect application comes along! So crazy... These awesome products are made to be USED, darn it!

My collection of stockings from our swap arrived today! Some very cool ideas! And tons of goodies! Very fun stuff... I have a very talented upline!
I couldn't have an October class without doing SOMETHING Hallowe'en, could I? I combined a few different ideas I've seen around to turn these altered Mini Milk Carton boxes into a fun pumpkin favor for my class ladies, and filled them with treats smuggled from my frozen stash for the big night! These were so much fun to make! Here is the "recipe" sheet on the Shadow Box project as well. Enjoy!
Tangerine Tango and Pear Pizzazz CS; Mini Milk Carton die; Broadsheet Alphabet and Gently Falling stamp sets; Large and Extra Large Tag punches, 1" and 1 1/4" Circle punches; self-adhesive rhinestones; Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding ribbon.
Here's a quick sympathy or reassurance card I cas'ed from Mary Fish again - at least, I think that's where I saw it! I'm trying to go in and fill in some card variety for my occasion boxes I plan on offering at the show next month - it's getting closer!
Whisper White, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Poppy Parade CS; Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch; Day of Gratitude and Blessings from Heaven stamp sets.
Here's the other sample Shadow Box for next Wednesday's class. This is actually the first one I did - CAS'ed from Amy West on the SU! Demonstrator's site. Her layout really got the juices flowing - I have been so eager to use this Spice Cake DSP - it's gorgeous! See you all next week!
OK, I'm totally psyched. Lisa (you wild woman, you!) requested a shadow box class, and today I totally went crazy designing samples for next week. Here's one, I had to make myself stop at two samples, before I used up all my boxes! I'll post the other sample later, but I hope everyone can make it, and bring a friend - this is going to be so much fun!
Bottom's up, baby! I love you!

My upline Julie sweet-talked me into joining my first swap, put together by our group DemoDivas mom, Gloria. Can I say how weird it is for me to have so many automatic "sisters-in-stampin'" to play with?!
Anyway, this is my first stampin' swap ever - and I feel pretty paranoid about it. We were supposed to use the new Holiday Stocking die, with at least two embellishments. And stuff it with something good! I was really stumped for a while on what to do for something different, when I found some really cute ice skate ornaments in the Napa Style catalog. The Christmas light came on!
I have filled my stockings with a little pouch of "kettle spices," and two paper candies, a candy cane and a wrapped hard candy. The cane and the holly leaves are from the accompanying Stocking Accents die in the Holiday Mini. I just shipped off my box o' goodies today!
Holiday Stocking and Stocking Accents dies, Cherry Cobble, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz CS, Early Espresso Baker's Twine and ink, sentiment from Bells & Boughs stamp set, candy from Sweets for the Sweet. Key Tag and Decorative Label punches.
Here's yet another purse set based on Becky Roberts' Purse-onally Yours tutorial. I had some retired DSP and colors that I've been reluctant to part with for long enough, and they paired beautifully with the new Perfectly Penned stamp set - yay!
Urban Garden DSP (retired), Kiwi Kiss (retired), Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze CS and inks, Perfectly Penned and Oval All stamp sets.
