Home for the HOlidays ( CTMH Stamp of the Month hop)


I am so excited about this month's stamp of the month- Home for the Holidays.  I am glad you've stopped because you're sure to find TONS of great ideas for holiday projects, gifts and pages.

Are you coming from Cat's Blog?  I'm happy to have you!
If you are just joining the hop here on my page then you'll find the next link at the bottom of the page.
First up:  a photo of the set and a reminder that you can purchase it for $17.95 OR ONLY $5 with a purchase of $50 or more before shipping and tax.
I created two different projects this month. 
First:  This card.  I used some of our Fundamentals paper from the Whimsy collection.  Our Fundamentals paper is super cool because it has a UV embossed coating.  It's so easy to create different looks by sponging ink to help the design "pop".  Click here to see the different varieties of Fundamentals ( I used the whimsy asst.) that we carry.  Black stars are from the Scaredy CAt assortment.
Second:  These cute treat bags.  They come in packs of 10 for $3.95.  I'm planning to wrap some homemade cookies in saran wrap and slide them in the bag.  It'll make a great co-worker gift, or even just a little extra something to finish off a gift basket for someone special.  These treat bags come in a multitude of colors.  Supply list:  click the links to see all of your options:  treat bags     shimmer trim      twine

Hope you love my ideas-  up next hop on over to Michelle's blog to see what she's created.

September card kits


This month I'm offering a card kit of fun designs using Chalk it up.  Kit includes pre-stamped pieces.  I have not colored the shopper image- you can choose to color with your own markers or colored pencils, or just leave her as a black/white stamped image.

Cost:  2 each of 2 designs for $8 includes shipping.  Kits will be ready to ship Monday as I'm currently prepping for this class that takes place at my home next weekend.

you'll need a journaling pen to add the line detail to the "friend" card. You will also need 3-d foam tape or pop dots along with standard adhesive for assembly.  all other supplies included.  If you are local and do not need to pay shipping, please contact me directly to order.
