Fall Has Arrived!

Fall has officially arrived!  One of my favorite times of the year. 🙂  I always get so energized this time of year.  I always have a long list of things to create, projects to get completed around the house and recipes to bake.  I guess it is the old instinct to forage, harvest and store before winter sets in. 

Halloween is just around the corner.  I just LOVE Halloween!  This is traditionally the weekend that I decorate for Halloween.  I can’t wait to get out all those pumpkin and witch decorations.  In preparation for my decorating frenzy this weekend I am posting a card that was made by the artists at A Muse Studio.  I love this stamp set Toil and Trouble.  It is cute and no too creepy.  My Halloween style. 🙂  This set and many more are in the new Holiday Catalog from A Muse Studio.  If you don’t have your copy yet just let me know – it’s FREE (only $3 for shipping if I have to mail it to you).

February Spotlight Promotion

Thanks for participating in our A Muse Studio team’s blog hop.  I hope you had fun exploring Sandi and Sunghee‘s blogs.  They are some very talented ladies.  I am so proud to be a part of their team.

I am featuring a card from the A Muse Studio designers.  They used products that are featured in February Spotlight Promotion.  Not only  is there a new promotion for this month.  But today is also the release date for the new 2012 A Muse Studio Catalog!!  Excitement!!  You check it out on-line on my website until you get your own hard copy.  There are some awesome new sets and accessories.

Thanks for taking time to explore my blog and have fun at Chris‘.  She always has beautiful projects.

Flying Bat Card

 

I posted this card last year but I love it and decided to make a couple more again this year to send out to a couple of new friends.  Can you tell me how I changed it slightly?  I am also going to submit it into challenge  #63 at Case Study.  It is another cool site who offers weekly inspirational rubber stamping challenges.

The stamps and papers used to make this card where all from the retired stamp company The Angel Company.

Stamping with my A Muse Studio Kit

I got my A Muse Studio starter kit in the mail a couple of days ago.  It is full of  WONDERFUL items.  Perfect for the new and the seasoned stamper.  It is such a great value at its normal price but now at the current promotional price of $99 it is almost a steal!  You can’t beat this deal. 

I’ve been trying to find time to create a few things but with the kids’ schedule I haven’t found much time.  This card is from A Muse Studio.  With being a new demonstrator they give you tons of support and help to start a new business.  This is a demo card and everything to make it is included in your starter kit.  So I made it tonight and it turned out so cute.  I’ve made a few other things but I am saving them to be revealed at Friday’s stamp camp.  Can’t wait to see you there.  Also, don’t hesitate to call or email with any questions about starting your own A Muse Studio business.  I’d love to have you on my team.

Halloween Stamp Camp Preview

Here is a little sneak peek of one of the projects for tonights stamp camp.  Can’t wait to see you all.

I am also preparing for tomorrow’s Ladies Pampering Event at my church, New Brunswick Church of Christ.  We are having a day of pampering and relaxation… a special guest speaker, facials, masages, lunch and of course, stamping! 🙂 The event runs from 10:30 to 2:30 PM.  I encourage you to make it.  I am putting together a cute “make and take” and having a raffle drawing for free admission into one of my stamping events.  I will post the winner here on Monday morning.

 

“This Card is too Busy…”

Well, not this card.  This card was designed by my good friend, Jennifer Edwards.  (I’ve displayed several of her works of art here before.)  She was a guest at my September Stamp Camp.  I designed a Halloween card using the exact same cardstocks and stamps and she told me immediately it was “too busy” and proceeded to change the design.  And she was totally right!! 🙂  I LOVE how she changed it!  Mine was too “busy”. (See card below.)  Thanks, Jennifer!  Keep Stamping!!
