Holiday Extravaganza Stampin' Up! class

So here are three more projects we will be doing at the Holiday Extravaganza Stampin' Up! class. Once again, these projects are done using the "Holiday Collection" stamp set, which was designed exclusively for Country Living magazine last Christmas. I'm still coming up with another 2 or 3 more projects, so check back and see what else will be included in the class. I have 4 more openings, so check out my calendar of events for more details.

Holiday Extravaganza Stamp Class Projects

So if you are signed up to come to my Holiday Stamping class, these are just a couple of the items you will be able to make. I plan on having at least 15 projects that you will be able to do. I had the opportunity to purchase the stamp sets "Holiday Collection" and the chipboard and papers that were in the Country Living Holiday Collection Stampin' Kit (offered in the Nov. 2008 issue of Country Living Magazine) recently from Stampin' Up!. Everyone that attends the class will get to take home with them the 6 piece stamp set. It includes a star, small snowflake, large snowflake, to: & from:, holiday saying and an "Enjoy" saying stamp. Several of the stamps can be used with our Star, Scallop and Circle Punches. If you have yet to RSVP to the class, do so soon, as I only have 4 spots left. Check out my calendar of events for more details. If you are cming, you may want to bring a couple of your favorite photos's for the picture ornaments.

Bigz Top Note Die, Fall Gift Tote

What's great about the Bigz Dies from Stampin' Up! is how versatile they are. On these little totes I cut out 2 Top Note dies from card stock and then cut out 1 from Designer Series Paper, cutting it in half. I used Autumn Traditions and Razzleberry Lemonade DSP on these totes. Add a strip of card stock to hide were the two pieces of card stock comes together, a small saying, I used one from Matchbox Messages and a ribbon. Attach one on each side of a small brown bag, cut it down to size, punch a hole for the handle and voila, a tote to hold whatever. For more information, just give me a shout out. Have a great day & Happy Stamping!

Smore's "Under the Stars"

I just love the set, "Under the Stars". Is this not just the cutest thing? This time of year is always a great time to make smore's and who wouldn't love this boxed set. Shown here it is prepackaged with all the goodies you'll need for that fall camp fire. To make the box, I used my Bigz XL #2 Box die. I cut out 2 from our Kraft card stock, put the backs together and kept the lids up to use as a tote handle.
This stamp set has 10 stamps in it so decorating was a breeze. I'll be making up several of these and will be selling them at the East High School Craft Show, this November 7th. For more info, check out my Calendar of Events in my Stampin' Up! Website. Thanks for looking.

IMDC-1 Halloween Idea's

Ok, so I haven't been doing much on my blog, and to come back with Halloween ideas is not me. No, these are not items we will be making in my upcoming classes next week.
The Basket is made with Stampin' Up!'s Basket and Blooms Bigz xl die in Pumpkin Pie cardstock and embossed with the diamond plate from Stampin' Up's Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plates. The saying is from Holiday Best, a level I hostess set which I colored in with our Stampin' Write Markers and punched out with our Wide Oval Punch, then daubered it with Basic Black Ink. The Ribbon is our new 1 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain. This ribbon is so easy to tie, even with its wide width. Love it! Now onto the card; I used Elegant Eggplant, Green Galore, Only Orange and Whisper White cardstock with our Sweet Centers Stamp Set which is currently in our Holiday Mini Catalog. I used our Sweet Treat Cups in the center and filled it with M&M's. The small saying is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. The ribbon is our 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain. Punches used on this card are the 1 3/4" Circle and Round Tab Punch. E-mail me with any questions.
