Happy Halloween...just barely!

Hello and welcome back! So there are about five minutes left for me to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! Whenever the new Holiday / Winter catalog comes out from Stampin' Up!, I like to purchase the stamp sets and bundles that cover several different holidays. I don't make a lot of Halloween or Thanksgiving crafts, so I love to get multiple uses from a single stamp set or bundle including those two holidays. Tonight I'm sharing the Halloween projects I made with these items.

Fancy Friday - Technique Challenge

Hello and welcome back! It's time for another Fancy Friday Blog Hop with my fancy friends (all current or former members of the Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team). You'll love all of the wonderful ideas you see on this hop, so be sure to circle all the way around. We also have a Pinterest board that you can follow. You might have just arrived from Krista's blog, and I'm sure she wowed you with her project.

This month we are featuring techniques. I decided to work with the Seasonal Decorative Masks, and show you techniques that could be used with them. I made the backgrounds for these cards using four different techniques I'll be sharing today.

Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - It's a Paisley Party

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the next Artisan Design Team blog post, and we're focusing on autumn seasonal products including Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set, Basket of Wishes, and All Year Long Project Life. You're in for a treat because we have so much talent and so many different styles represented by these 20 women from around the globe. And on top of their talent, they are fun and fabulous as well. Please keep hopping through all 20 so you don't miss a thing! Be sure to use something like Google Translate for those blogs not in your native language. Also, you can find all of our projects for the year in one easy place, on our Pinterest board, and this group of projects will also be featured on the Stampin' Up! Corporate Facebook page this Friday. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin, and I know you loved her amazing project as much as I did.

I chose to focus on the Paisleys and Posies Stamp Set and coordinating dies, the Paisley Framelits Dies.

Artisan Design Team Blog Hop - Jar of Haunts!

Hello and welcome back! It's time for the next Artisan Design Team blog post, and we're focusing on the Jar of Haunts stamp set this month. You're in for a treat because we have so much talent and so many different styles represented by these 20 women from around the globe. And on top of their talent, they are fun and fabulous as well. Please keep hopping through all 20 so you don't miss a thing! Be sure to use something like Google Translate for those blogs not in your native language. Also, you can find all of our projects for the year in one easy place, on our Pinterest board. You might have just arrived from Krista Frattin, and she always makes the most stylish projects.

So, on to the projects. I decided to make some simple treat containers. I didn't use the jar image at all from the Jar of Haunts stamp set, so you can see how versatile the images are.
