Halloween Workshop

Okay, I know I still have a couple hours until the last group arrives, but in case you are stopping in, I wanted to taunt you. I have 3 openings for the class tonight, in case you are interested.

The first project is a "Spooky" decor item. It has a lot of detail, but so fun and so cute.

The next project is a recycled toilet paper roll. Ahhh...the things we do to help the environment! Hee hee! Check out the detail with the embossed spider web!

The final project for the evening will be a cute little milk carton die cut. I am really liking this stamp set. Notice the stamps that say "To Open"....just like a regular milk carton. So cute!

If you'd like to come tonight or if you are interested in some of the supplies you see here, contact me at

Happy Birthday Nichole

Happy Birthday to Nichole and to me, too! We share a birthday and we usually get to go out and have a girls day out, but this year I have other things that were keeping me from going boy #3! We did get to finally celebrate the next night at my house....we tried to watch a movie, but ended up talking for hours catching up on life. I got her a little gift and made her a gift bag and matching card. Here is the pair:

Here is a close up shot of the flower on the bag. I used the Flower Folds Die Cut.

Here is a picture of the card. I used the hand held large flower punch.

The designer paper is from last year's holiday mini catalog. I can't remember the name right now, but can you see the glittered flowers. I hope they come out with a similar paper for Valentine's Day again this year.

Spooky Sneak Peek

I told you that I would be posting a sneak peek of one of the projects that we'll be making at the Halloween Stamp Camp. it is:

It's a cute little home decor item that you can put on your mantle or entry way table. It's approximately 3"x 20". The nice thing is that you can fold it right up for easy storage. It's so cute, even my husband approved and he thinks most things are "allright". Such a guys response!!

You will also be making 2 really cute and duplicatable candy/treat holders. Contact me today if you are interested in attending.

Baby Paige

My friend Christie asked me to help her make a gift for her sister Stacy...she is having a baby girl really soon and Christie wanted to give her something homemade for the baby's room. Christie gave me a photo of the bedding called "Hayley" by Pottery Barn and she also provided the shadow box to complete this project. Here is the photo of the bedding:

Here is what I came up with:

Thank goodness for the cute new Owl Punch that Stampin' Up! has!!! It worked out great! I also used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Simple Alphabet Letters die cuts. The colors I used are Pink Pirouette, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and a hint of So Saffron. The Designer Papers are from retired packs, but the patterns worked so well with the bedding.

If you are interested in me making something like this for your child or as a gift, contact me today!!

Another Teacher Gift

The boys went off track at the end of August and I wanted to make the teachers a thank you gift for all their hard work. I made a post-it note display and matching mini card. I used a retired Designer Paper and the stamp set from the Summer Mini called "First Day". Here they are:

Keep an eye out for the Halloween Stamp Camp coming on September 30th. I have some super cute projects planned. Contact me today if you are interested in attending.

Happy Stamping,

2 Celebrations In One Day

Last Saturday I attended a Bridal Shower for my future Sister in Law, Stephani. She and Brett (Bryan's younger brother) are getting married in October. I made Stephani a card for her shower. Her colors are Blue, Gray and White. I decided to go with using just the blue and white. Here is the card:

The second party that I attended last Saturday was for my cousin's daughter, Alyssa. She turned 19. What do you get a 19 year old? That is what I asked myself. I spent a day shopping and realized that I am really out of touch with fashion and things that are "cool" and "hip". Do they even use those words anymore?! :) Anyways, at the end of my unsuccessful shopping trip I decided to make her altered notebook. I think she really liked it.

Happy Stamping,

Thank You and a Baby Shower Invite

This is the 3rd card that we made at the last stamp a stack. We used Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo and a random designer button to add a splash of color. The stamp sets that we used are Elements of Style and Curly Cute. Super simple, but bright and fun! (sorry that the picture is washed out by the flash)

The next card is an invitation that I designed for my Aunt Renee and Cousin Desiree to recreate for baby shower invitations. My cousin Brian and his wife Taryn are having a baby girl in the fall. These are her colors and she wants to do a super princess-y girly theme for the baby's room. We thought this would suit her. :) The colors are Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White and a little bit of Pretty in Pink. The glitter adds the bling. We used the Baby Bundle stamp set and the crown is from an old set called "Birthday Beauty."

Happy Stamping, Krista

P.S. The new Holiday Mini Catalog is out and it is so pretty. Check out my website for the new products just released.
