In this month's classes we had a lot of

Stamp Set - Graceful Garden
Ink Pads - Memento Black, Pear Pizzazz

Our second card we used the Half Full
Stamp Set.  This is a fabulous set not
only for Christmas cards, but also very
versatile for many other occasions.

Again we have coloured with the
Alcohol markers.

or maybe 2 who would 
appreciate this card.

  It makes creating stunning cards
 very simple.

It is a two step stamp set which is
how you are able to get the
different coloured and patterned

This card was inspired by a number
of different cards I saw whilst checking
out Pinterest.

Wow, I love this Stamp Set.

The Limited Edition Hostess Stamp 
Set Merry Patterns creates these beautiful
 images quickly and easily.  

In these projects I have stamped the
outline image in black Memento ink and
then stamp the inside image in a
different colour.

I even found that it was very easy to line 
up the images.

The colours I have used for these projects 
are Cherry Cobbler and the retired 
Cucumber Crush (actually thought
I had Garden Green when I started stamping).

These are the Mini Pizza Boxes, which I 
didn't stamp directly onto the boxes, 
but rather on a piece of Whisper White
 Cardstock and then attached to the top
 of the box.

Inside our little Mini Pizza Boxes are
a set of 5 (3" x 3") Gift Cards.

This stamp set is a limited edition set only
available to hostesses with a workshop
total of $450. 

 If you think this set is beautiful and 
would like to earn one of these beautiful sets, please don't hesitate to contact
me today to arrange a workshop for
October.  This promotion finishes at the
end of October.

 I am getting ready for a Craft Fair in
November and I came across these cute
little gift ideas (on Pinterest of course)
from Laura's Creative Moments.

Of course, I had to try them.

I created these ones to hold 2 Twinings Teabags,
2 sugars and a couple of treats.

The DSP I have used is Painted Autumn,
Foil Frenzy Specialty DSP and Naturally Eclectic.

The Teapot and Teacup are retired dies 
and the sentiments are from the Balloon Celebration Stamp Set.

These are Laura's original creations.  Just so cute.

recent birthday using the beautiful

Birthday Thinlets.

create, but it looks amazing.

Supplies used:

Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock
DSP - Bundle of Love
Gold Foil
Gold Ribbon
Happy Birthday Thinlets
