Shimmering Snowflakes

One of my new favorite things in the Holiday Mini Catalog is the shimmer paint. My friend taught me how to create a spray to make shimmer paper! I loved it so much I wanted to make some snowflakes shine. I know you can't see it in the pictures but in real life these snowflakes (and the corduroy button) are really sparkly.
Where did I put these snow flakes? I made a fun winter album with them. This is a waterfall scrapbook. When you pull the tab on the right the pages flip over! These books are too much fun! This book is a couple inches smaller than others I have made. I just changed up the dimensions. Here are some pictures of the inside pages.
In this last picture you can see most of the hidden page all ready for a photo.
I wish you could see the shine but you will just have to try it yourself :) If you would like me to teach you just let me know!

Fleurette Flower

I LOVE Fleurettes!!! what are they you may ask, they are the awesome crocheted flowers in the catalog. They come white so you can dye them any color using re-inkers. For this card I dyed the double flower with pale plum ink to create the focal point on this card.

Turkey Treats

I LOVE the sweet treats cups, they are SO much fun! Here is a turkey I made, I copied the general idea but a few of the ideas were mine :) I used the to the Nines DSP, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Dusty Durango. The turkey feathers are made with the Scallop Die for the Big shot and everything else was punches!Here is a side view, look at all that candy (I picked out all the brown M&M's from the bag :)

Wandering Words

Here are 3 cards I made with the stamp set Wandering Words. This first one I made using the Santa Image. I colored the image with markers to create the multi colored effect.
This Next card I embossed the image on DSP (I love the effect this creates) using craft ink and clear embossing powder.
The leaf and top note were cut from the big shot.
I love the shimmer on this last card. I used a build a brad and after punching out the white circle and heart I sealed it with crystal effects to give it a different look.
I also added a little bit of glitter to 5 of the hearts.

This stamp set is in the Holiday Mini Catalog and I LOVE it! I plan on using it a lot!

It has been a long time since I used my pretties kit (I tend to hoard it) so I made a card using one of the flowers. I usually color the flowers I use but this time I just left it white. For the center of the flower I just punched out a 1 inch circle from DSP and layered a circle clear button on top.

To create the curtain bottom I just used a strip of DSP that was 12 inches long and scored it randomly and accordian foldeded it before attaching.

BOO Banner

I LOVE decorating for Halloween, have I already said that :) I hung this up on my bare wall above my computer. I am excited to look at it every day! My fabulous upline Brandi desinged this and we made it at her downline meeting last week. My favorite part by far is the glittered letters. We cut them out using the big shot and then glittered them up. The large scallop circles and pennants were made using the same die! LOVE that.

This second one is probably my favorite :) I used the tab punch for this one.
This Last one I made a very small box to attach it to. I just punched out some ovals and sponged the edges before putting it together.Here is a side view of the box. I just took a piece of ribbon and attached it with brads. I LOVE how the colors from Stampin' Up! Match perfectly!

Halloween Pages

I love decorating for Halloween and this year I have been making things with purple instead of orange (my husband thinks I am crazy.) So to go with my theme, here are the club pages I made for this month.
This 12 x 12 layout was so much fun to make, I LOVED stenciling my background. For the title I used the awesome Go Go Boots Big Shot Alphabet and numbers along with the Night and Day Designer Series Paper that is in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Witches Shoe

This shoe was SO fun to make, I found the pattern online so all I had to do was to cut it out and adhere it together with sticky strip. I used the Night and Day DSP and Perfect Plum CS for the liner. To Create the buckle on the top I just punched out a piece of the brushed silver cardstock with the Modern Label and Slit punches. Let me know if you have any questions!

I had a bunch of these cards left over from the fair so I decided to make a set to go inside a fun magazine holder. I love how the scary skeleton is peeking outside.

Birthday fold-out cards

I am having a lot of fun playing with this stamp set. It is called look who's turning. Here are a few I made last month. This first one we made at our downline meeting last night.
The next two are super similar, I just kept changing it until I liked it, ahh the power of dotto!!!
I definitely like the hippo better than the octopus but thought I would share both.
