"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." -- Tom Hanks, You've Got Mail

* * *

I'm ready for Fall; it's my favorite time of year! And my favorite movie is You've got mail. I can't even count how many times I've watched it. It gives me that warm fuzzy feeling! So many of us post creations and show the project or photo that inspired it. Well, today my project was inspired by my favorite quote from You've Got Mail.

The kids and I went to the Dollar Store last week and I picked up some pencils, composition books, a couple clipboards and some paper clips. I dressed them all up for some cute back to school goodies for the kids. The clipboards will hang in the kitchen to display their latest school drawings and papers. I got that idea from my friend Amy Williams! Thanks Amy!

Here are some photos of my creations. Click photos to enlarge.

Supplies Used

Stamp Set: Tart and Tangy
SU DSP: Summer Picnic DSP- retired, Old Olive DSP
and Cast A Spell DSP
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4 Circle Punch,
1 3/8 Circle Punch and Old Olive Ribbon - retired

The new school year is almost upon us! With that comes the
beginning of fall sports and activities. I just finished this cute little

posts: here and here - I couldn't wait to make one of my own!

Stamp Sets: Contempo Alphabet and Trendy Trees
Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron,
Real Red Textured C.S.

The calendar itself is made from one sheet of 12X12 Close to Cocoa cardstock. The squares for the days are 1 1/2 X 1 1/2. It was super simple and fun to make. What a nice way to add some seasonal home decor!! Hope you like it!

Calling All Stampers!!

I have some stampers looking to put together a local club.
We would need 6 members and I've already got 3!!
Want to know more? Here are the details:

What is Stamp Club?

The club will consist of 6 people meeting every other month for 1 year. Every member commits to purchase a minimum of $25 in product from any current catalog each month. You must place an order even if you cannot attend our monthly meeting so that the hostess qualifies for her free merchandise. Each person in the club will get to be the hostess one of the months and earn the hostess benefits that month. This is a great way to slowly build your Stampin’ Up! supplies and stamp sets.

Each month we will create 3 projects. For example, we could make three different card projects (2 each of 3 designs) so you leave with 6 cards. We will use different stamp sets and techniques each month so you are always learning something new. There is NO class fee when making cards. We could also eliminate 1 or 2 of the card projects and create a larger project in their place. Depending on what the project is, there may be an additional charge for that particular class. Any where from $5 to $10 depending on club members project pick. The club will receive group emails and hostess will have input on club meeting projects.

Your Benefits
  • A free Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog upon joining.
  • One FREE level 1 hostess stamp set in your hostess month. (possibly more depending on sales).
  • At least $15 in free Stampin’ Up! product in your hostess month. (possibly more depending on sales).
  • A special gift from me in your hostess month.
  • Club only product specials!

How do I sign up?

Simply send me an email letting me know that you have read over the information and you’d like to join us!!

As I said, Stamp club is a great way to slowly build your supplies, but it’s also fun and relaxing time with friends doing something you love! Please contact me with any questions that you have and I’d be happy to talk with you!

Hope to hear from you!!

Season Of Friendship

(Click Photos To Enlarge)

I was so happy to see this set make it into the new catalog
from last year's holiday mini! It is a great set and so
versatile. As I've told you before, I struggle with making
masculine cards. Even though it is brown, blue and green (which I
consider masculine colors) I'm not convinced it is really manly.
This one is for my uncle; I hope he likes it!

Inside the card

Supplies Used

Stamp Sets: Season of Friendship and Wonderful Favorites
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla
Inks: Sage Shadow, Soft Suede, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss (retired)

Simple Gift Box

(Click Photos To Enlarge)

Stampin' Up has some great videos available to their demonstrators.
This box was highlighted in a recent video. It is made from 2 sheets
of 12X12 cardstock. Click here to download the template. There is
one trick to making the box fit together. You must trim about 1/8 inch
off of two perpendicular sides of the bottom sheet of card stock.
This makes the bottom of the box just slightly smaller and
the top will slide on perfectly!

The cute little flower on top of the box was inspired by Dawn McVey.
Click here for her tutorial on how to make these.

Supplies Used:

Cardstock: So Saffron, Really Rust, Melon Mambo, Very Vanilla
and Old Olive
Accessories: So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon, Earth Elements
buttons (both retired), paper piercing tool and Mat Pack
