Holiday Journal

I have officially started my Season of Style, This &That Holiday Journal!
I am very excited about this new Stampin' UP! products.


Here I am posting photos of my journal and links to all the products that I used to make it up so far. 
 Season of Style designer stickers  & Nauty and Nice rotary stamp



AND...here it is all decked out for the upcoming holiday season.  I am feeling so prepared this year it is unreal!!  LOVE IT!
A peek inside mine.  In the pocket are the cards that I am making and sending out this year.  All Stampin' UP! Of course!!!

HALLOWEEN!!!


 I know, I know, it is still early yet, but HEY I just had to play with my Halloween stamps and accessories!!!  
I love Halloween and decorating for that special day.  One thing I don't do is send out cards for Halloween.  I did up two fun cards and will most likely hand them out to Grandparents, our son (if we gift him something that day) or maybe even send one in to his teacher.  

Here are the cards that I did up and I will reference supplies I used with links right to my online store so you can get your very own and start creating!




One of the sets that I used on these cards comes n BUNDLE form, meaning you can get a discount when you purchase both the stamp set and the coordinating punch together.  Check it out here!


Hope you liked the samples!
Happy Stamping!

Friday Mashup

I thought I would try another challenge.  :-)
This one I have done in the past but it has been a LONG TIME!!


Here is my card.  






Pumpkin Pie Goodie Gear!

Love love loving these kits!  I was able to come home with the Christmas one from convention this year.  
I just had to snap up a Halloween kit!  They are awesome!

Here is the kit: Pumpkin Pie Goodie Gear.
Be the most popular stop on the block this Halloween with one-of-a-kind goodie bags! Kit includes elements to make 10 goodie bags: die-cut Kraft tags; printed, die-cut banners; stickers; Bermuda Bay Baker’s Twine. Also includes 3" x 5" Cellophane Bags. Tag size: 1-5/8" x 2-1/2".

I am SO excited that I have one kit (that would be half of my son's class) done up and ready to go!  I haven't been this prepared in years!  EEEEKKKK!  So exciting!

They look so cute!
Found some yummy chocolate pumpkins at the dollarstore. 

Jack is very excited and although Mommy did this kit up herself he is excited to make up the next batch!  We don't get very many kids at our house on Halloween either, so I am thinking of doing up a kit for our house treats as well.  :-)  So many ideas!!

Dynamic Duos Challenge

I have done these types of challenges before but honestly don't keep up with them as much as I would like. 
Once I am back to trying my hand at them I am always happy that I did.  These challenges keep you thinking.  Keep things fresh.  Give you new stamping ideas.  Many times they will also "force" you to try new techniques, colour combos, or stamps that you wouldn't try before!  Love that!

Like this weeks Dynamic Duos challenge.  Combining Calypso Coral and Crisp Cantaloupe.  Really?
So not something I would normally do...but I did!!  
here it is!!


Here is the link for you to check out the Dynamic Duos challenge.
Awesome cards on there for tons of inspiration. Enjoy!

I am needing some inspiration these days and I knew I would be able to get it taking on a few of the stamping challenges.

Bit of Carving.

Had the need to carve last night!
So this is what I decided to work on...
When I was at convention in July, Shannon West did a presentation on Undefined.  These were some of the stamps that she carved and I FELL IN LOVE.  How cute are they?  
She called them her breakfast stamp set (the bacon and eggs) and then showed us the donuts and a can of coke!  Funny Bunny!  I am not a pop drinker so I nixed the coke but may just have to carve up toast and a teacup!!

Here are the stamps.


Here is a sample.

Wanna have just as much fun creating your own?
