Candy & Crafts

Halloween is a month away and this weeks TGIF Challenges Theme Challenge is the perfect way to get a jump start on some treats for all the little ghosts in your life!

I love the Nested Treat Boxes from the Mini Catalog.  They are the perfect size for a few trinkets and treats or even a pair of warm fuzzy socks!  With just a bit of Them Bones DSP a super cute candy corn tag, this little treat box came together in no time. I love the Trick or Treat sentiment from Tricks & Treats...the font is so good!

Not only are there cute candy corn dies in the Tricks & Treats dies, but there are coordinating dies for the spooktacular Tricks & Treats stamped images.  The ghost is adorable, but the Frankenstein is my favorite!

Now I have a question for you.  Candy corn...take it or leave it?  I am not much of a candy consumer, but I do love candy corn season!

Take a peek at what the rest of the design team has to share today.  You are sure to find some great inspiration!

Happy Stamping!

Rollin' Around the Roller Rink

Who remembers rolling around the roller rink on Friday nights in middle school?  It was actually the ice rink for me, but we always loved when they dimmed the lights and turned on the disco ball!

Curved Occasions is such a fun stamp set and has a little something for every occasion!

This weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge was the perfect sketch to bring the disco ball and skates together in some fun and retro colors!

Parakeet Party, Berry Burst, Azure Afternoon and Berry Burst...sooo good together! These colors have a definite Barbie vibe to them too.  So many childhood memories wrapped up in this stamp set!

Roller skating isn't just for the girls! Pumpkin Pie, Parakeet Party, Azure Afternoon and Daffodil Delight have an 80's vibe for sure!  The stars from Reach for the Stars dies match up perfectly with the disco ball starts.  I love finding multiple uses for our products!

I hope you are rolling through the week with a smile on your face!

Happy Stamping!

With Love & Gratitude


Welcome to another amazing Monday Montage blog hop!

Fall officially rolled in this weekend...perfect timing to play with this months With Love & Gratitude Paper Pumpkin kit.  The little bags and 3x3 cards are so cute and all of the fall images are beauti-FALL!  

One of my favorite things about the Paper Pumpkin kits are the alternative projects that can be created.  We celebrated my momma's birthday on Sunday evening and I created this adorable little gift bag using a few extra supplies. 
I cut the flap off of the bag to turn into a tag.  A Happy Birthday sentiment from Sentimental Park fit perfectly in the little banner.  A bit of Copper Clay Textured Ribbon made the perfect handles for bag. Doesn't it tie all of the fall colors in so well?  Anyone else keep the tissue from the Paper Pumpkin boxes?!?  I always have a use for it!

I couldn't stop with one alternative project though...

I cut apart a couple of the gift bags, 3x3 cards and envelopes to create some beautiful fall cards that will be perfect for sharing thanks and gratitude!

The delicate gold lining on the banner tags are the perfect compliment to the all of the greens and golds of the fall foliage.

With fall comes all things pumpkins, right?  I love how soft and subtle these pumpkin images are.  And it's even better that these colors all happen to match my fall decor! I still have some bits and pieces left that just might be used for a home decor piece...stay tuned!

Be sure to hop along all the way through.  I guarantee you won't be disappointed with a single project these amazing stampers have to share with you!

Happy Stamping!

Grateful for You

Do you love inspiration challenges?  If you do, we have a beautiful challenge for you this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love all of the warm fall colors in these images!

I couldn't help but ink up this beautiful floral image from Fruitful Blessings again and bringing in all of the colors from the inspiration photos.  Our 2023-2025 In Colors were meant to be for fall creations!  Copper Clay, Wild Wheat and Boho Blue were the main colors I was drawn to, along with some Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Ivory.  So pretty!

Do you spy some new paper as well?  The Tartan Foil is a current Online Exclusive that you are going to want to add to your paper stash for your fall and winter creations.  It's so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I can't wait to see what everyone is inspired to create this week!

Happy Stamping!

Merry & Bright Monday

Hello stamping friends!  It's time for another Merry Monday!  I've missed a couple weeks, but I'm getting back on track thanks to this weeks Global Design Project Case the Designer Challenge.

I chose to case the sketch of this card because I love the sweet simplicity of it. And because it was perfect for the Merry & Bright string of lights!

I am all about bold and bright colors for Christmas!  The colorful rainbow of stripes pattern from the Merry Bold & Bright DSP is one of my favorites and was just perfect to peek out behind the string of lights.

How cute are these light bulbs?  I love all of the cute elements and details in the Merry & Brights dies!

Do you love traditional Christmas colors or are you drawn to the bold and bright colors like me?

Happy Stamping!
