Paper Pumpkin - Final Take

Hello again,
Here is my fourth and final take on September's Paper Pumpkin kit!  When I do these alternates, I try and work with the contents of the kit.  But I have to admit, I kept wanting to make a spider man for the web!  My goddaughter would have loved it!  But like everyone, I am always short on time, and I like the challenge of sticking to the kit contents!  And I think this one would make a great masculine card!

September Paper Pumpkin - Original

I'm discovering that I'm not overly quick to post these or put them together, but I still enjoy them!  This was the September Paper Pumpkin Kit.  This particular card is based on the original kit design.  And really--where else would you get a fun stamp that says Wahoo???

Everyday Occasions

Meet my new love, the Everyday Occasions kit. 
It's trendy with leafs, grey, mint, and banners, and yet classic at the same time.   It makes 20 cards (and everyone is a different design), and still has lots of leftovers (probably enough to make another 10-20 depending on what you did).  It's great for beginners--the only thing you would need is snail adhesive and scissors, or great for a quick DIY Christmas gift (ahem--no peeking!), or for keeping cards on hands.  And the stamps that are included, are great sentiment stamps that could be easily used again and again.
You can purchase this kit at my online store at one of two ways.  The first is the kit as shown.  The cost is $36.95 (plus shipping and taxes) or, you can now purchase the kit bundled with paper snips (honestly some of the best craft scissors I've ever used--these puppies are sharp!  do not allow your children to use them, or your cat to run off with them (Don't ask)), snail adhesive, and a pack of glue dots for $65.00 (plus shipping and taxes).
Trust me, you will love it!

Christmas Banner

Sorry for the break in blog posts.  I've had some major computer issues, first with my laptop dying, and then second with my new computer and Windows 8 (lets just say having to reformat my computer at less than 1 month old is NOT a good sign.  I'd highly recommend not purchasing anything with Windows 8!)
Now this picture is not the greatest, but I couldn't wait for it to stop railing to get a better one.  Stampin' Up! has come out with these Simply Created Banner Kits and I love them!  And I have one spot left in my class on November 22nd, from 6-10pm.  Let me know if you are interested in attending!  Or, if you can't make it to class, but still want to make this banner, let me know, and I will give you typed instructions for it if you purchase the materials from me!
