Another set of awesome Weekly Deals! So excited to see the shaker frames on sale! I'll share a cute Christmas shaker and a 'how to' video with you later this week where I used these so easy sticky shaker frames.
I held a Blendabilities Class last weekend and here is one of the cards we made:
Isn't it pretty? I have no idea where I came up with this color combination of Navy, Old Olive and Gray. But I love it!
We stamped the nativity scene using Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto our Very Vanilla card stock and then die-cut it with an Oval framelit. It's layered onto a Night of Navy Labels frameilt piece.
We had fun coloring these unique trees using lots of combinations of these Blendabilities markers - Night of Navy, Old Olive and Smoky Slate.
You might think you don't want to do this much coloring on a stamped image; but first of all it's fun! Second; you wouldn't have to! It's gorgeous stamped all in one color or even just embossed. I hope to show you one of these soon.
Stay tuned for two new Blendabilites video's - coming soon!!!
Have you seen this Frightful Wreath kit on page 36 of the Holiday Catalog?
Isn't it great! It's a complete kit with everything you need to make this 17" kit. For just $26.95. That large spider web is made of our Silver Glimmer paper; all pre-cut and ready to use.
Here's a close-up of the beaded spider.
Here's a picture of our new family addition - Ebony. She's 7 weeks old and a cuddly ball of energy!
You can see she just about fits into my hand! We got her from a friend of a customer of mine who took her in; she was starving and eating out of their garbage. So happy to take her in and bring her into our home. She's adapting wonderfully!
Here's another favorite card of mine this fall! We made this card for October's card clubs:
Gray is one of the hot neutral colors right now and adding Bermuda, Silver and Black to it is gorgeous! Did you know this color combination is in our Color Coach? I use it frequently to help me find awesome color combo's.
I made a video showing you just how easy this card is!

I love these pretty and unique cards my friend Pat made! She likes to try new layouts and especially likes to use framelits and embossing folders. Check them out!
This first one in Blackberry Bliss is quite striking isn't it? Such a favorite of many.
She used many of the unique patterns of our In Color designer patterned papers and cutting them at angles to fill in the top portion. A great use of paper as you will be able to make multiple cards using most of the pieces.
And this is Hello Honey.
And lastly our pretty Mossy Meadow. Just lovely!

I'm unsure which stamp set she used for her greeting.
This is one of the first ideas I had when I saw this beautiful stamp set, Gentle Peace. It's the newest photopolymer stamp set. See it here.
I heat embossed the image with Silver embossing powder on our Vellum card stock. Then flipped it over and colored with my Stampin' Up! markers on the reverse side. Then I hand cut it out and adhered it to a layer of Whisper White with glue dots and hand cut that White layer out too.
So pretty! This photo doesn't do it justice. The card base is Lost Lagoon with So Saffron and White layers.
I used quite a few marker colors:
Mary - Lost Lagoon, Coastal Cabana, Soft Suede, Blush Blossom,
Joseph - Pear Pizzazz, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede, Blush blossom
Oh I do love these pages for my next Scrapbook class on November 16th. They are awesome if I do say so myself!
Class is on November 16th at 1 pm and we're making 4 double layouts featuring Fall, Halloween, Christmas and an all-occasion layout. They are just beautiful.
Here are a few close-ups:
The class fee is $25 with an option of a partial refund at class with an order placed that day. I am also offering a 'kit to go' option for anyone who cannot make it to this class.

We made this card at my Card Addiction class on Sunday.
Love this Holiday Home stamp set! There is just one week left to get in on this month's Class to Go and get the stamp set, framelits and 5 cards kit. Check it out here.
After I tore the edges of the 'snow' I sponged Soft Sky ink on them and added 2-way glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. And can you tell that the trees are from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set? It's just the tip of the tall tree but using just the tip of it works perfectly. The greeting is from Happy Hour.
I really enjoyed putting together my stars from this brand new Simply Created kit. This kit is from the new Holiday Supplement brochure which starts today!!!!! But a heads up - these items are available only while supplies last. See it here:
Look at these!
And that's not even all of them! I still have about 7 left of the 26 stars to decorate. The largest one above is over 13" across! I know many of these beauties will be used as ornaments on my tree this year.
You might wonder if these boxes open.... Well they do not; they are meant to be for decor. But.....! I figured out a cool way to make some of these into treat boxes.
If you die-cut a hole in one side before you put it together and add a window with a 'hinge' it opens up many new possibilities! Check out the video below and I'll show you how I did it.
This video will show you a few 'tips and tricks' on making your boxes plus ideas so they hold together securely too. Here's a link to my YouTube Channel- I hope you subscribe so you don't miss anything!
Here are most of the pieces that come in this comprehensive kit:
I added a few extra items to make the hinged and embossed stars but all you really need is adhesive to finish them. The stars come with adhesive tabs but you do need additional adhesive to adhere the fun embellishments.
I posted this Framed Sampler yesterday but didn't give the many details on each swap yet. That's for today's post.
This is a 12" sheet of Blackberry bliss card stock that I scored about 1 1/2" from each edge; twice. The 2 1/4" squares are mounted on an 8" piece of Mossy Meadow card stock and that is on an 8 1/2" square of Crushed Curry card stock.
Here are the close ups of the squares:
From left to right - Laurel did the cute Indian Owl using the Owl Builder punch and Color Me Autumn dsp, Annette the center using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set with Cajun Craze ink and Marilyn the beautiful leaves on the right. They look so real! She cut the leaves using the Autumn Accents die and scored veins on each one, stamped on it using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and then crumpled it up. Finally she sponged it. Beautiful!
Left to right - Lorrie did the left one with the Fall Fest bundle stamp set, coordinating dies and wood elements, Brandy did the cutest punch art Turkey using the owl, circles and scallop circle punches, and Karen did the 'I Love Fall' square. All very unique and I just love how they all work together so well when you have a common color theme.
Left is Candy's using the For All Things set in Crushed Curry & Soft Suede ink. Middle is mine using the Fall Fest bundle. I stamped the background using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp and made tendrils by cutting thin pieces of Mossy Meadow card stock and winding them around a thin paint brush. Hold them a few seconds tightly and they keep the shape pretty well. On the far right is Mary's using the For All Things set in Blackberry Bliss, Soft Suede, Color Me Autumn washi tape and a gold metal button.
Another amazing sampler we made by pooling our craftiness! I so love it!
Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Contral Freaks! This month's theme is Fabulous Fall. We have lots of fantastic projects to share with you. Just click on the link at the bottom of each post to see them all.
You many have arrived from Justin's blog. He has wonderful projects doesn't he?!
For mine, first up is a card I made to swap with my Flowerbug's team.
I love the Fun Fall Framelits and thought this layout would really highlight them. The colors here are Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Mossy Meadow with a bit of Very Vanilla. The Postage punch really spotlights these cute leaves!
Next is another fun swap my Flowerbug's do for the Seasons or Holidays; a Framed Sampler!
Isn't it incredible?! These are super fun to make as you're just designing a 2 1/4" square! I set the theme and colors and everyone uses their imagination to create their square, making multiples of their own for our swap.
There are so many details to each of these squares that I decided to post them all tomorrow so this post isn't so long. So stop back in!
And now you're off to see what Mary Brown has to share with you. Don't miss it; she does beautiful work!
And here are the last set of beautiful Flowerbug Team swaps this month:
Candy made this one using the For All Things and Merry Everything stamp sets. This is one of my favorite color combination of Blackberry & Old Olive here. That watercolor style leaf makes a pretty background on the Olive layer.
Laurel made this beauty using the Color Me Autumn designer paper and For All Things stamp set. Turning the square on the angle really makes a difference doesn't it?
Very nice work gals!
You'll see my swap card and lots more on October 20th as part of the monthly Control Freaks Blog Shop. So stop back in then to see tons of Fall projects!
