It's Fancy Friday!

Yep it's that awesome time of the month where the 2013 Artisan Design Team get's to showcase some fun stuff for your crafty inspiration! This month the theme was DSP. Which is always fun since DSP hoarding collecting is one of my favorite things to do...Lol! With so many choices it was hard to narrow it down but I finally did & went with Color Me Autumn.

 Now don't stone me but I had to bust out that retired little corn framelit that went with the Perfectly Perserved stamp set. How could I not, just look at that DSP it was practically begging me to make it the most adorable ear of corn ever! Well that's all the fun I have for you today so lets on over to visit my friend Alanna Wharf-

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Gift Card Holder

Welcome to our last blog hop of the month!

Well I just realized I totally jumped the gun & started playing with toys from our November box but its been sitting here tempting me for weeks! Lol!
Anyway I just had to open up the Gratitude for Days Simply Created Kit & make some fun birthday gift card holders. I LOVE how the stickers are perfect to add the recipients age!
For an extra touch I used the Spiral Border to punch the top of the journaling cards! CUUUUUTTTE!
Ok lets head over to visit Sarah- :)

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Scary Treat Box

Welcome to this weeks Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago I was backward through the holidays so tonight I have something a little spooky to share. Lol!


We were lucky enough to get the Seasonal Snapshot Journaling Cards in our boxes this month so I thought it would be fun to make a little treat box. The cards are a nice weight for this kind of project so I just took one of the 4 x 6 cards and scored at 2 1/2" on the long side & 1" on the short side. I found these cool glittered spider rings at the local party store & I just snipped of the ring part & hot glued it to my box. Then I just fussy cut the "scary" from another of the journaling cards & attached it with dimensionals.

Well that's all I have so lets jump on over to see what Sarah has cooked up today!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Chalkboard Banner

Welcome to this weeks blog hop! Today we get to show off the projects that will be shared on Stampin Up's Facebook page this week. So here is my little creation-

I LOVE LOVE LOVE chalkboard art & would be elated if I had some mad hand lettering skillz but unfortunately I am horrible at it so when I saw the "I'm Thankful For" stamp I knew exactly what I wanted to create...Faux Chalkboard Art! I grabbed the chalkboard banner kit & my white craft ink & TA-DA! All I needed to do next was use my Pumpkin Pie reinker to dye some seam binding & now I have this little beauty hanging by my desk & I just love it so much. Hope you give a little Faux Chalboard Art a try!
Let's head over to visit Sarah, I'm sure she has something fun to share with us!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Blog Hop- Merry Christmas

Yep I'm just gonna pass by all the other holidays and jump straight to Christmas, lol!
Thanks for joining us this week!
Well I have to admit my uber talented friend Cindy Schuster inspired this card! She made the most beautiful card for the Convention displays that paired these two stamp sets. Isn't she clever?!
I kept my card pretty simple but I did add a touch of stitching to jazz it up a little.
Thanks again for stopping by now it's time to hop on over to visit Sarah!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Holiday Home

Welcome to our first hop of the month of October! Crazy, right? The holidays will be upon us before we can blink. Yikes!
Well that means its time to start getting a stockpile of cards ready to go out! Aren't these little houses adorbs! I made them even cuter by coloring them with my Blendabilities markers. I also wanted the trim on the Coastal Cabana house to be white so I carefully went in with my white gel pen to add that in.
So that's all I have for you so lets go visit the fabulous Sarah Sagert-
