This is one of my favorite little items to make for a gift. Not only are there Hershey Nuggets in there, it is the cutest little package ever!
I simply cut strips of DSP to decorate each nugget. I make a band to wrap around the box and the create a little bow by rolling skinny strips of DSP. For this set, I also added some stamped images from the coordinating Gently Falling stamp set.
It is great because you can make one for any occasion or holiday! It doesn't cost alot. It doesn't take long to make! And, did I mention that there is chocolate in there?
This is the third and final card that I received in this months SUDEMOONLY swap. This is a Halloween card! I don't usually do much Halloween stamping, and I don't know exactly why! I guess part of it is because I am focused on Christmas stamping!
This card is showing off lots of products from the Holiday Mini Catalog. The Stamp Set is Out on A Limb. The frame on the front was done with a new Bigz L die Peekaboo Frames, also in the Holliday Mini Catalog.
This is another card that I received via the swap this month. I hadn't considered Cherry Cobbler for a fall color but, I guess that I can now! Gently Falling is a lovely set even if you don't "2 stamp" it!
This month our theme was new items from the Holiday Mini Catalog. There are so many great goodies in there! I must admit that my collection is growing! I just received another order with new stuff in it yesterday and I also placed another order to get my hands on some more new goodies.
This Gently Falling stamp set has a ton of miles on it! I had previously warned you that you would be seeing lots of it, and I wasn't kidding!

This is a card that I designed to make at my workshop on next Friday night. I love the fabric detail. It adds so much to a card. Not to mention how nicely this suite of products coordinate with each other.
This set Gently Falling is a two step stamping set. But, both of the images work well standing alone! This is such a versatile set. And, one that I am glad that I ordered. I just love Fall and this set is going to work well for me!
This is the card that I made for this months "Jump on Your Jingle" for SUDEMOONLY. Each month we make a set of cards so that when December comes we are prepared for mailing Christmas cards without a lot of hassle.
For this card I used the Christmas Lane Simply Scrappin' Kit. I always love the DSP that is included in the scrappin' kits and this is no exception! This card took literally 2 minutes to assemble. The only stamping that I did is the "Merry Christmas" which is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
The colors of card stock that I used are Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso. The felt mittens are also new and in the Holiday Mini. I just love these little felt pieces. You will for sure be seeing me use more of them in the near future!
Who doesn't love a one layer card? I love nothing more, than sitting down for 5 minutes and whipping out a whole pile of cards!
That is what I did last weekend for the "thank yous" for my birthday and Ryan's birthday! For my cards I used Field Flowers with Always Artichoke and Concord Crush. The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly.
I love making these cards and I challenge anyone to say that they can buy them quicker and cheaper than I can make them!
This is a card that I made for dear Debra! Debra is a friend that I met through SUDEMOONLY. She is a moderator on the site, and just has the biggest heart. Debra took the time to send me many wonderful wishes for my birthday, so a thank you card was in order.
I used the Gently Falling Stamp Set with the DSP and Fabric that I used in yesterdays card. The colors just come together so nicely. And, luckily the leaves are not that difficult to cut out!
This post comes with a warning...you will be seeing LOTS of this set and paper......
I held out on the pre-order special for quite a while, well until the last possible day. Then I thought, what the heck? I might as well take advantage of a deal! And, boy am I glad that I did. I have created some mighty fine cards and I haven't even begun to scrapbook with this set!
This card uses the Gently Falling stamp set, Spice Cake DSP and the Spice Cake Designer Fabric. I have NEVER ordered SU! fabric before, but it came in the bundle. Boy, is SU! good at marketing! I have to say that I enjoy using the fabric on my cards.
Our second niece turned 2! I had to come up with a special card! This is what I ended up with! Bright cheery colors, embossing and I used my Big Shot with Shadowbox letters to create the 2nd....
The boys and I made wrapping paper to match the card. We used plain white wrapping paper. They punched out circles in the same color scheme and we glued them to the paper! It was super cute, and there is no other like it!
I always enjoy spending a little time and coming up with something that is special! This certainly fit the bill!
Well, since my last post was related to Christmas past, I thought I would continue the Christmas trend for another day!
This is a card that I made for the SUDEMOONLY group that I belong too. The idea is to begin working on our Christmas cards before December 24th. So, yesterday I had a couple of minutes of stamping time and this is what I came up with for my September Christmas cards.
The paper is from the DSP Pack Letters to Santa. I love this pack because of the color combination. This is Marina Mist, Riding Hood Red, and Early Espresso.
I have such a great week ahead! The sad thing is that school starts and my boys will be gone most of the day! Not to mention that I have to be on the look out for 4 bus stops per day, YUCK! But, on a good note is that I was naughty last week and ordered some new goodies. Most of the stuff is from the SU! Holiday Mini Catalog. So, be on the look out for more goodies! I also ordered an SU! shirt, which I normally don't do. Hopefully, I am pleased with my purchase!
Last Sunday, while Irene was doing her damage, I was scrap booking. It was quite a lovely day indoors. I stayed my jammies, watched it rained, listened to the wind and did a ton of scrap booking.
I am very excited about that because I had been working out of order on my photos. I used to be right up to date with my scrap booking, but due to all of the other events in our lives I got behind. When I started scrapping again, I of course worked on "current" stuff that was "more fun." The results were very frustrating.
I am now only a year behind, but can do it in order with a few exceptions here and there. But, I am off to a good start.
This is a very old photo of the boys that I couldn't just put away. They are about 3 and 5 here with Santa. I can't believe how time flies and how quickly they grow up. Now, they are almost 9 and 11 and the days of Santa are gone! But, I cherish moments like these!
This page is made with the Just Add Cake Designer Series Paper. I love Baja Breeze and it is one of the colors featured in this set of papers. I also used Early Espresso. This pack of paper is fun because it features so many colors. At first, I didn't think that I like the paper. But, it was featured as a pre-order item so I ordered it. I guess I will find a use for it!
Have a great day! Our summer is winding down and we are looking forward to the transitions that we have in store for our family! Enjoy!
I told you that I love this color (Island Indigo) and stamp set (Field Flowers), so you have to look at it some more! I did this page of a photo that we had taken in the beginning of the summer. I love the family photo, but I love the page too!
The new in color ruffled stitched ribbon is really neat! It is easy to work with and adds so much to any project!
One of the things that I enjoy doing is using the extra pieces that I had prepared for a workshop to create another card. This is one that I made from the pieces of the previous posts card. I used the same colors (Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade) and the same stamp set (Field Flowers), I just rotated the images. And, of course I used ovals instead of the nice crisp square sentiment feature. I like how this one turned out too!
This is a combination of a few of my favorites from the new Idea Book and Catalog. Island Indigo and Field Flowers are two of my first picks from the catalog. So, I combined them and this was the result!
I also added Lucky Limeade to the mix.
The ribbon is available in all of the new In Colors in the Idea Book and Catalog and I just love the ruffled edges and stitching on the ribbon!
This was the second card that we made at my last workshop!
This is the card that I made to go with the frame that was posted yesterday. I stuck with the same color theme and the butterflies. I added a different embossing folder and stamp set for the sentiment. The "Congratulations" is from Curly Cute. I just love this set.
I enjoyed making my nephews frame so much, that I decided to make one for my newest niece too!
I used butterflies and the stamp from Love & Care to create a "girly" frame. I hope that it isn't something that she outgrows too quickly!
I like the end result of the frame, but have to say that I enjoy working with boy colors alot better. It must be because it comes so natural to me! The colors that I used are Early Espresso, Pink Piroette and Baja Breeze.
But, I love it anyway. This is a card that a gal sent to me with a recent trade. I just adore the look of the card. She did a bunch of masking and sponging, I believe. I am not sure if the blue on the card is brayered or sponged. But, it is lovely! I honestly don't know exactly which stamp set that she used, but it reminds me of Pocket Silhouettes. I thought it was cute, I hope you do too!
Here is a card that I made a while ago using the Petite Pennant Builder punch. I used a stamp from the Pennant Parade stamp set. Then I punched out the pennants using the punch. The DSP is from the Beyond the Garden DSP Paper Pack. I strung the pennants together using twine and attached them to brads. The background is embossed with the Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate.
Pacific Point is such a bright and cheery color, it can be used for any occassion!
This is Island Indigo....I am so in love with this color blue. It is a new in-color for the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog. Which means it will be availalbe this year and next year!!! I wish that it never goes away, but that wouldn't be the idea of an In-Color....would it?
I used Always Artichoke and Whisper White Cardstock with the Love & Care Hostess set from the Summer Mini Catalog. This set is awesome! I used my Color Spritzer Tool to add a little more color!
Have a great day! It is a perfect summer day here!
