Show Time

Craft show time!
I have a few items I have been working on for craft fairs this Saturday and next.
I found these cool notepads at Michael's and packaged them up with pencils and added 
a Kraft, stamped header.
Here's a close-up.
I am in LOVE with this 
stamp set.

You all know how much I LOVE my flower stamps!

Combo Card

Sad news, the Create Kindness Kit is sold out.
Happy news, you can still buy the individual stamps and the card bases/envelopes.
You can find it all HERE.
The individual stamps are only $2.95.
I used the "FRIEND" stamp with the SOTM
I was actually inspired by my scrap paper that I stamp ink off before cleaning my stamps.
The "FRIEND" stamp just happened to land on the pumpkin and I kinda liked it!
You know I've been crushing on this Glacier pumpkin/leaf theme so I thought I would have fun with it and combine the two.
The SOTM is only $5 with a $50 order and $17.95 on its own.
It is really one of the prettiest ones of the year and it will only be around a few more days,
until the end of the month.
Have a blessed day!

Love and Friend Cards

The countdown is on...
only a few more days to get the Create Kindness Kit.
Details on my website HERE.
A mini-card from the kit and a mail-friendly card created with kit contents 
and stuff from my stash.
And here is the card combo that I created with the
"LOVE" and "Beautiful" stamps.
Coloring these images with our Shin-Han markers is so relaxing and even better than coloring a coloring book because I can share these cards and spread some kindness!
Here is a picture of the kit.

Create Kindness Kit

This is the last week to order the
I will show you the the mini-cards created as designed and then some cards that I created using the kit supplies along with cards from my stash.
These mini 3 x 3 cards go together so quickly and they are fun to color.
The kit comes with the 24 pre-printed card bases and the pre-cut circles along with an
Archival Black mini-ink pad.
I made the die cut mat with my Cricut and CTMH cartridge.
Here are two A2, mail-friendly card I created with the same supplies and a few more from my stash.
I cut the purple dotted card base in two pieces to use on two cards.
This kit is really fun.
You can read all the details about it HERE.
I'll share two more examples tomorrow using the LOVE and FRIEND stamps.
Have a great week friends!
I am excited about some Fall temperatures so I can get back to my walking routine.

Scrappy Saturday

Hello, for this week's post of Scrappy Saturday I would like to introduce
It's one of the new paper lines and Workshop Your Way featured in the
Holiday Expressions.
I love the it!
Even though my photos were taken in the heat of summer and this paper has a Fall vibe I thought it worked.
 These layouts were created directly from the WYW Kit with a few tweaks.
I will add some journaling about how thankful I am for my sister and my daughter and our fun trips, like this one at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
For my local readers,
this is one of the layouts we will do in the October class.
Details coming soon.
Here's a look at each page.
I apologize for the wonky stripes in the photograph.
I can assure you my scrapbooking skills are much better than my photography skills, lol.

The photograph on the bottom left is actually a photo of a quilt we saw in the special exhibit.
It made me think of this paper and inspired some ideas for cards which I will share later.
And of course, the LOVE sculpture behind us is quite well-known and created by
Robert Indiana.
I will be teaching my students about it next month so it will be fun to show them some of my pics.
Have a grand weekend and like the tag says "be happy"!

Autumn Inspiration

This month our team has been doing a photo-a-day challenge.  I shared that I was inspired by the above photo to create this...

These little treat holders can hold our M-Size stamps
or a couple of Ghiradelli chocolates, win win either way.
I created these with some retired Fundamental Cardstock and the leaves from our 
Here's another set.
The inspiration for this project came from another CTMH consultant's blog.
You can find the directions HERE.
Jacquie is so creative and I just love her work. 
What is inspiring you these days?

Happy Fall!

Happy First Day of Fall!
Fall makes me happy!
(Even if it is still in the 80's in Indiana).
I love the colors, sights, and smells of Fall.
One of my fave treats are caramel apples.
I found some fun treats in this flavor and packaged them up for little gifties.
I am totally crushing over this stamp set,
Woodland Critters.
Which critter is your fave?

 Or Foxy?
I am partial to the fox, maybe because I love that face! 
Here is a look at that adorable stamp set.
