I made these for my daycare kids and some of the kids in our Bible Study group. I hope they like them....I sure do. The spiders came off of someone on SCS...there is a Thin Mint between the two scalloped body circles. The pillows with the candy corn are made from a Sizzix diecut. My demo, Nicole Witzig, who is super talented, taught us to punch the window in the pillow and adhere acetate to the inside. Just adorable. Thanks, Nicole, for the super advice. I wouldn't be doing any of this if it were not for you!!! :)

I love how this turned out. I think I can really get into these nugget tins! This is for a friend who needed a bus driver gift for Christmas.....Mmmmmm...Mmmmmm.... GOOD! Truth be told, I ate 3 of these nuggets as I was making this! These are going to make me fat if I keep making them. Hehehehe!

One of my cohorts in the daycare field wanted me to make some personalized cards for her to give to her daycare families for Christmas. Here is what I came up with. I used my Just Rite stamper and those darn itty bitty mini letters. They are great for this kind of personalization but, mannnnnnn, are they small. I really do think I need glasses! LOL! I had to practice with the stamp a few times to preview it in order to be sure that I had all the letters the right direction, etc.
Hope everyone has a Happy Monday...boy, the weeks are passing quickly these days and Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.

My friend, Dawn, is the sweetest...she's keeping me busy and inky and sticky. This is what I did over the weekend......I was happy to be living in my stamp area all day yesterday after lunch.
Hope you like it, Dawn!!! :)
Oh, I should tell you about the Winter "All I have Seen" cards...(bottom right in the photo). Being a dork and all, first I had the idea of cranberry and white colors, so made the card that is on top. Then I though...Oh, well, maybe that doesn't look very winter-y...so made a snowflake one (it's underneath) so there are two different All I Have Seen cards..... :) Thanks, Dawn!!!! You are the Best!

Good Morning everyone and Happy Monday....or at least I'm trying to tell myself it's a Happy Monday...back to work!
I made this folder over the weekend for a friend. The cards will be forth coming...but I wanted to show off :) this folder. I love how it turned out. Got the ribbon at the $1 bin at Michael's...and it's perfect with this paper and the large prima flower behind the monogram.
Happy Monday Everyone!!!

I just made my first nugget tin! Not ever ventured here before but they really the easiest treat boxes to make and look, ohhhhh, soooo booooo-ey! These are for our boy's bus driver and teachers. The pillow boxes perfectly hold 1 little prepackaged store bought bag of candy corn. The larger tins hold 12 nuggets, the small tin holds 8. And, the place card...well, is a place card for a special Halloween Party or Thanksgiving dinner!
Prices: Pillow box $2.00, Small Tin $3.00, Large Tin $4.00, matching card $1.50, place card $.50. E-mail or post here if you'd like to order any of these items.

I sent this order off last weekend to a customer in Ft. Wayne! She was thrilled with it!!!! She had seen my SCS gallery and picked out a few items. Fortunately, most of it I could recreate. The teacup on the stationary was in my gallery as a name tag for a Christmas Tea our church did last Christmas. My customer had seen it and said that teacup was just 'her'. So, I wanted to be sure to use one of those on her stationary packet. One of the SCS gals I'd met at a gathering in our area had the teacup set on the card she made for the swap gathering. I e-mailed her, she sent me the stamp set, and I made the name tags for the Christmas event......I had colored them in Christmas colors but, fortunately, the purples went right over the light greens and light rose colors! Perfect! I love SCS girls....they are so thoughtful and willing to help out another SCS stamper in a heartbeat!!!
Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

My demo (Nicole Witzig) had us make an ornament card like these this past week at our monthly Stamp Club meeting.....I'd seen them on SCS but hadn't really taken the time to figure them out. I love how the silver tab punch is used for the top of the ornament...my demo is soooo smart! She rocks! :) On the green ornament card, the scallop is punched into the front of the card so you can see the tree on the inside.
The third card I made using the Martha Stewart branch punch. I love it! It just adds life to a card. I hope you enjoy them all...I certainly did and do!!!
