Halloween Peeps!!! Free the Peeps!

So, I'm at it again with my Peep capturing. I saw these little ghosteseses and had to jar them up for my Halloween S'mores! Here they are for your enjoyment!

1 jar $12 or 2 for $20 These make awesome teacher gifts or a hostess gift to take to a Halloween Party. I love me peeps even though me can't stand to eat the things...ewwww...but if you love peeps, you will surely love eating these s'mores.

Terrific Tiles!

Here are a few double sets of tiles that I am making for a customer. I love the Halloween set! I used the retired Stampin Up! set Carved and Candlelit for the pumpkins, Pocket Silhouettes for the grass and the words came from a $1 bin at a local craft store.

This set was made using the current SU! set Upsy Daisy and I love how they look on these tiles. I also used the retired SU background stamp, French Script and an old, old retired set (not even sure of the names) for the verse from Proverbs, "A Friend Loveth at All Times". I inked around the edges of the tiles to give it a framed burnt look and I think it really adds a lot to the set. I hope my client loves these!

These retail for $2.50 for single tiles, $10 for a set of 4 tiles and $20 for a set of 8. I can personalize or monogram tiles as well so if anyone is interested in a set for gifts, let me know!

I've been working on Halloween Peep jars today so will post those soon. Free the Peeps! Free the Peeps!!!

Scrapbooking Craze!

Well, I'm finished with my scrapbook for hire and thought I'd share a few more pages from the book. I love how it turned out and hope my friend (and client) will love it too.

Scrap Pages with Petal Party

Hi everyone! I'm so in love with Stampin' Ups Simply Scrapping kits. I've never used one before and when I signed up as a demo, a kit came with my SU starter sales kit and I LOVE IT! Why didn't I hone in on these before? I'm so dense sometimes....shesh!

Well, some of you may think that SU only sells stuff for card making and rubber stamping...but they have expanded sooooo much that in October, they are coming out with My Digital Studio which has Stampin' Up!'s exclusive images in an easy to use software studio to make creating cards, photo albums, scrapbooks and other projects even simpler! I can't wait to take some time to familiarize myself with this new component of SU. I've not ever done a digital you can see from the photos....I'm lovin' my hands on books. But, I will definitely give the digital aspect a look/see. You can find out more about My Digital Studio by clicking on the Holiday Mini Catalog over to the right of my blog. Scroll to the last 2 pages of the catalog to find the digital information.

Now, back to my hands on real life scrapbooks! I've been working on a book for hire for a friend. Isn't the little girl DARLING! Mom and dad aren't to bad themselves! These are 2 pages I did this weekend using the Petal Party Simply Scrapbook kit from Stampin' Up! The back ground sheets are from my local scrapbooking store, but everything else on the page is from SU. You can find the kits on page 164 of the Idea Book and Catalog.You can get to the catalog by clicking on the catalog over to the right above the Holiday Mini. I will for sure be getting a few more of these kits....they are FANTASTIC!
