Fancy Friday- Christmas Tags

I loooove to create tags so it was exciting to have that be the theme for December!
True Confession: I am uber behind on making teacher gifts this was the kick in the pants I needed to crank them out! Lol!
Pretty sure I will be making a lot more tags after hopping through all the amazing ones my friends have created! So with that said, lets hop along to visit the beautiful Kaitlyn Zumbach~

#tgifc33- New Products!

I'm baaaack! If you follow me on Instagram then you know what I've been up to. Let me just say spending the last few weeks moving has seriously killed my mojo & eliminated all my free time. It doesn't help that it took a solid 2 weeks to locate most of my toys..grrr. But when I saw this weeks TGIF Sketch & Mr. Brown showed up with my Occasion catalog pre order goodies I knew I could resist no longer!

So these new papers are pretty much the funnest ever & the Balloon Punch, Eeeep! Must. Have.
Ok I must run but you seriously have to go check out what the rest of the TGIF Design Team has made for you & don't forget to play along!

#tgifc28- Sweater Weather

Fall is my second favorite season-
Hoodies, Football, Apple Cider, Autumn Leaves, & Cuddling Weather=LOVE
Anyway you get the idea so when I saw this weeks color challenge I jumped at the chance to create a card for a friend inspired by FALL!
I'm glad the clean & simple look is still in because working in a craft room that is practically empty is a challenge in itself. Hopefully with in the next 2-3 weeks I will have full access to all my toys!
Okie Dokie time to get back to more packing & cleaning, Oh Joy! (insert eye roll)
Don't forget to play along with this weeks challenge & leave some love for the rest of the

Fancy Friday- Trick or Treats


Time for our monthly Fancy Friday Blog Hop! Seriously can't believe there are only 2 more Fancy Fridays before we head in to 2016- EEK!
Well before I freak out about that let's live in the moment &  talk about spookworthy treats-

I wanted to make some cute toothpick toppers that could adorn a batch of yummy cupcakes then I remembered the cutest little box I received from my uber fabulous friend, Jeanna Bohannon! So I played off her idea & stuck my toothpicks right in to the top of the little mini treat boxes!

I love these type of "non-destructive" treats- no need to tear open anything, just pull the pick out & gently open the box & embark on a mini sugar rush. Lol!

Alrighty well it's time to click the next button & see what spooktacular treat Cathy has created!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Team- Year End

Wow! Can't believe how quickly the time has come to say good bye- our reign as the official Artisan Design Team has come to an end. Please pass the tissues...
It's been an amazing adventure & I will forever be grateful for the opportunity & the many friends I have made along the way.
Since I can not put it off any longer I guess we should get to it-

We were assigned the Sparkly Seasons stamps & dies. I L-O-V-E the die cut words that come with the set so of course I had to use those on my final projects-

(witches hat turned to a pilgrim hat!)
Just in case you're wondering how I made the hook: I used the handheld hole punch & then just made two little snips. Easy Peasy!

It's Treasure Hunt time!

We've set up a global Treasure Hunt as a little thanks to you for following our adventures.

Here's how to play:
1) Collect the names of 12 Stampin' Up! products by clicking through our blog hop this week.
2) Fill out the entry form below.

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Simple Christmas Gratitude

I don't know about you but I find after I have stamped a ton of Christmas cards to send to friends & family I am ready for a long winters nap, Lol! No but in all seriousness I really don't feel like creating a whole bunch more fancy cards so soon. Sometimes I forget that it really doesn't have to be fancy to express your gratitude, plus who keeps the thank you cards they get from Aunt Betty saying they loved the fruit basket you sent...SO on that note how about mass producing something like....
Yep, I can even hand my girls the supplies & let them crank these babies out!
I totally love the look of that awesome deer & he looks amazing paired with this sentiment!
Ok now that I have showed you a way to save your sanity, lets hop along & see what fancy things the rest of the team has created :)

Stampin up Artisan Blog Hop- Into the Woods

As the 2014-2015 ADT prepares to end our reign in just 2 short weeks- this post features the very last project that we have created for Stampin Up's corporate Facebook page. Boo Hoo...
While I go get a box of tissues, you can take a little trip Into the Woods to see my creations-
Again because of the move I'm working with limited supplies but I definitely needed some thank you cards to send out so I made it happen.
Each card is pretty much the same I just alternated the DSP patterns to give each one a unique look. This my favorite thing to do when I need cards quick!
Ok I know the rest of the Team has some knock your socks off eye candy waiting for you so go ahead & click on over to visit Sarah!

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop-Might be a little acorny..

Welcome to this weeks ADT Blog Hop!
It's been really inspiring to see so many awesome ideas with just one product suite & today we are working with the Acorny Thank You products.
I can't remember if I told you or not but we are moving! For those that follow me on Instagram you already knew that & I loved the comment that we were moving so I could have a bigger craft room. LOL! It will have its perks that's for sure. Anyway we have been packing, putting our stuff in storage, & doing a bunch of repairs to get the place ready to hit the market.
Well my point is most of my craft room is in storage -Boo Hoo- so I had to use my limited supplies to come up with a card for today...
I had so many ideas & I would go to get something only to realize it had already been packed. But I did manage to find a hodge podge of stuff to finish my card with. :)
Now we get to go see what the rest of the team has made with full access to their creation stations!
(I will be living vicariously Lol)

Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- 2x2's

Welcome to our first blog hop of the month! And you know what that means a brand new box of products to play with!
Today we are showcasing the Seasonal Snapshot product suite~
In particular I am using the adorable 2x2 cards that come in the accessory pack
Tiny things are just so cute, right?
Well I must admit I usually just flip through these little cards & then move on to the other stuff...Until today!
Yes I know you wouldn't necessarily eat these candies with a spoon BUT they were one of those "Oh so cute I might need these one day" purchases & along with these types of purchases often comes the Hubby's often asked question "What are you going to do with that?" Ah see I told you I really did need them for a project (wink wink) but I digress-
Obviously they are the perfect size for cute lil' tags but what about cards?

Yep they are perfect for cards too! For this card I cut the striped card in half & mounted it on both sides of the sentiment. And you might be thinking -Whaaaat no stamping, the horror...Lol!

So I managed to squeeze in some ink on this one. Gotta show the Seasonal Snapshot stamp set some love too!
Lets head on over to see what Sarah & the rest of the Team has created :)
