I can't believe it is week #8 already of my Fall Friday Series.  I have had so much fun creating projects to share with all of you.  Make sure you check back next week for the final project.  I have been wanting to make one of these for the last couple of years and finally made it. I can't wait to share it with you.

This week I decorated the pizza boxes that are in the holiday catalog. I haven't really played with them until this week and I am not sure what took me so long.  They are so stinkin' cute! For this project I decorated one as a halloween box with chocolate in it and the other one is more fall with eight 3 x 3 note cards and envelopes.  Stampin' Up! brought back the 3 x 3 envelopes, which I am so happy about.  

Did you notice on the box with the sunflowers on it, that I stamped right on the box!  It was so easy as the boxes come flat and then you fold them as you want to use them.  With them coming flat it is great for storing them.  You know what else is great?  They are food safe! So, you can put any homemade little treat inside the box and your food will be save.

To make the Halloween box you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 2 at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Pumpkin Pie Cardstock #105117

  • cut at 3 1/8"x 3 1/8"
  • cut 4 at 7/8" x 3 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4" to punch out two labels

Spooky Night Designer Series Paper #144610

  • cut 2 at 3 x 3" one for the top and one for the inside
  • cut 4 at 3/4" x 3 1/4"

Whisper  White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 2 x 3"

The pumpkins on the front are from a piece of the Spooky Night designer series paper and I fussy cut them out.  

The tag is from the Spooky Cat stamp set and punched out with the Everyday Label Punch from the Holiday catalog.  Below is a picture of how I did the orange pieces behind the tag.  I finished the tag off with the new Black Rhinestone Jewels that are also in the Holiday catalog.  I sure hope they carry these over to the annual catalog next year.  The tag and pumpkins are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals and everything else is adhered with the Snail Adhesive.

To make the Painted Harvest box you will need the following products:

Whisper White Thick Cardstock #140272

  • cut 8 at 3" x 6" score at 3"

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut 8 at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" 
  • cut at 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 1" x 11"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 8 at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • cut at 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"
  • cut at 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" this is for the flower and leaves on the front band

To give the flower on the band a little bit of sparkle I used Wink of Stella on it and the leaves.  I used Fast Fuse to adhere the band together and the flower and leaves on the band.  I wanted to make sure they stayed together as the band will be taken off and on.  

Here are some more pictures of the projects

It has been a wonderful week for me this week!  To start with on Tuesday I was promoted to Silver Elite with Stampin' Up!  I have been working really hard to get the promotion and I still can't believe I did it.  I was so happy I was crying and Mr. Wonderful asked why do women do that, cry when they are happy.  I told him that it was because that is the way God made us.  Now, I will be the first to admit, I cry at everything and I mean everything!  

Then on Wednesday night I had my first team meeting.  I would not have been promoted without these wonderful ladies.  I can't thank them enough and am so blessed to have each and everyone of them on my team, but more importantly as my friend.  They mean the world to me!  

I will admit I was so nervous about the meeting, I wanted everything to be perfect for them.  It went perfect and was so much fun!  We already have our next two meetings planned and  I can't wait!

Last Saturday was our 29th wedding anniversary, but it didn't work out for us to celebrate last weekend.   We are going to spend the day together and finish it off with going to a hockey game in Columbus. We both love to watch hockey, so I am really looking forward to it.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Leaves Scrapbook Page

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves stamp set #138802, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

You are not going to believe where I got the inspiration for this scrapbook page.  I was in Kroger getting groceries and thought I would go check out the Halloween/Fall section.  You never know I might find something I just couldn't live without.  Oh My Goodness, I found exactly that.  Sitting there were two coffee cups with leaves on them.  What is so special about that you ask?  Let me tell you!   They were the same leaves as in our Vintage Leaves stamp set and in Stampin' Up colors!!  I almost shouted out loud with excitement when I found them. I think my husband at this time thought I had lost my mind.  LOL  

The colors were Fresh Fig, Crushed Curry, Tranquil Tide, Chocolate Chip and Cajun Craze.  I just couldn't believe it.  My first thought was, that would be such a pretty scrapbook page with all of those colors. Then my mind went crazy with ideas on how to use those colors together on other projects.  Below is a picture of the coffee cup.  Of course, I had to buy one.  You can never have too many coffee cups.

I wanted a fall saying on this page so I went to Google and read a bunch, I mean a bunch and this one caught my eye.  All the things I love about fall, right there.  It was perfect.  Here is a close up of the poem so you can read it better.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #7

stampin up, Stampin" Up! Sweet Home Stamp Set #140936, Labels To Love Stamp Set #144967, Spooky Cat Stamp Set #144749, Home Sweet Home Thinlits #140279, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Look how cute this Halloween layout turned out!  Every quarter I have my Scrap Along class where we make 3 two page scrapbook layouts with different themes.  Our themes at my class last Saturday were Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving.  I always have so much fun creating pages for these classes.  

To make this layout I used three different stamp sets, Sweet Home from the annual catalog and Labels to Love and Spooky Cat from the 2017 Holiday catalog.  All the products I used on these two pages are in the current catalogs (annual and holiday), except the paper I used to make the house.  The paper was in the 2016 Holiday catalog called Halloween Night Speciality Designer Series Paper.  You could use Smoky Slate paper and if you wanted our Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  Do you see the Pick a Pattern Washi Tape on the bottom of each page? How many ghost do you see peeking around the corners?

To make this page you will need the following products:

Pumpkin Pie 12 x 12 Cardstock #145483

  • you will need 2 sheets

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut 6 of 4 1/4" x 6 1/4"
  • scraps for the bats (7), door, window, cats, oval and 2 punches from Pretty Label Punch

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #1119683

  • scraps for the windows

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • scraps for the ghost (3), Happy Halloween, Trick or Treat and the label on the bottom right hand corner

Did you notice the roof on the house?  It is not a piece of paper, it is a stamp!  For this part I laid my house where I wanted it to go and then I stamped my roof.  It is much easier to stamp the roof first then adhere the house.  The house, window, ghost, and bats are cut out using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits. 

The cats were punched out using the Cat Punch that coordinates with the Spooky Cat stamp set and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper.  If you buy the stamp set and punch as a bundle, you can get it at a savings of 10% off!

For the sentiment on the house and the top right hand corner I used the Spooky Cat stamp set.  The sentiment by the cats came from the Label to Love stamp set and I used the coordinating punch, Everyday Label.  To get the black layer behind the label, you are going to punch out 2 black pieces.  One piece you are going to cut it in half horizontally and the other one have vertically.  On the piece you cut horizontally you will also trim off the edges.  Adhere these pieces to the stamped image and you have made a background label for the white label.  See picture below.

I adhered everything with snail adhesive, except the ghost by the house and both sentiments on the right hand page.  For those I used Stampin Dimensionals to give them some dimension on the page.  

Here are some additional pictures.

Now that we have the kitchen finished we are working on finishing the upstairs.  We are going through everything as if we are moving, which we are not, and Mr. Wonderful is painting the closets as we empty them.  He only has two more to go, but one of them is the master walk in closet.  Yep, that one is going to take us awhile to go through.  We have new carpet coming in a few weeks and we have to get rid of a lot of things so we don't have so much to move. Thankfully they are going to break it down into 3 days so that will be a big help.  

I am very thankful that all of this will be done before Thanksgiving and before when Emily comes home.  We are sad though because Erica will not be able to come home for Thanksgiving this year and we are not sure about Christmas.  This will be the first time in 22 years that all four of us will not be together.  I know our kids are suppose to grow up and go out on their own, but do they have to move so far away?

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Vintage Leaves and Stylized Birthday Card

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves138802, Stylized Birthday stamp set #141828, Cable Knit Embossing Folder #143537, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I was on Pinterest the other day and saw this awesome card created by Amy Koenders.  Thank you Amy for sharing your card with everyone.  I love how you can use it for anyone, male or female.

To make this card you will need the following products:

Soft Suede Cardstock #115318

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 3 1/2" x 3 3/4"

Early Espresso Cardtock #119686

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut at 3" x 3"

Crumb Cake Cardstock #120953

  • cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  • cut at 2 7/8" x 2 7/8"

Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

The easiest way for me to explain how I made this card is to go layer by layer.  We are going to start with the bottom layer made with the crumb cake cardstock.  I used the biggest leaf in the Vintage Leaves stamp set for all the background stamping.  

  • Crumb Cake layer:  use Sahara Sand ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock
  • Soft Suede layer: use the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • Crumb Cake (top) layer:  Soft Suede ink and stamp off first before stamping on the cardstock.  Stamp the Happy Birthday with the Soft Suede ink full strength.
  • Very Vanilla inside: Sahara Sand ink stamp full strength and then stamp again turning slightly without inking your stamp again.  This will give you a shadow look.  I did this on the bottom right hand corner.

Stamping off means you ink up your stamp and stamp on a scrap piece of paper first.  Then stamp on your project without reinking your stamp.  This will give you a lighter image on your project. 

I adhered everything with Snail Adhesive except for the two top layers and there I used Stampin Dimensionals. 

I personally think this would make a great masculine card for fall birthdays or actually you could do it for any time of the year.

Today is hump day!!!  We are half way through our week!  Have a wonderful day today!

SCS Creative Crew October 2017 Project #5

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Wood Words #143928, Heartland stamp set #143892, Softly Falling Embossing Folder #139672, Brick Wall Embossing Folder #138288, Stitched Shapes Framelits #145372, Layering Oval Framelits #141706, 2" Circle Punch #133782, Leaf Punch #144667, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

This is my final project for the October SCS Creative Crew.  For this project we had to use the following colors in our projects.

 

 

I have to say, this was another one that stumped me for a while.  I liked the color combination, I just couldn't figure out how to use it in a comfy, cozy (that was our theme of the month) project.  When I work on some projects, I try many different punches or things cut out with framelits/thinlits.  When I don't use them, I just throw them in a basket to use at a different time.  I accidentally knocked over the basket and the two yellow pieces fell out onto the floor.  That started my creating process and I ended up with the above card.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Chocolate Chip Cardstock #102128

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4

Tangerine Tango Cardstock #111349

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Daffodil Delight Cardstock #119683

  • cut at 3 1/4" x 6 1/2"

Tranquil Tide Cardstock #144246

  • cut at 2 1/4" x 5" you can cut all three pieces out of this piece

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"

I used the Eastern Medallion Framelits to make the sunflower.  When you cut them, you will need 2 of them, you are going to notice that they aren't cut all the way through.  In the picture below you will see how you have to cut them.  

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Eastern Medallions Thinlits #143275, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking or 3D projects go to stampinscrapper, Joyce Whitman

Once you get them cut you will take your Tangerine Tango and sponge the edges of the flowers.  I then took my bone folder and curled the edges of the flowers.  Adhere the two pieces together alternating the flowers.  Next, I ran the Chocolate Chip circle through the Big Shot using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.  You will want to put your circle near the bottom of the embossing folder so you can get a lot of dots on the circle.  I also used the Brick Wall Embossing Folder on one of the white pieces for the background.  

I then punched out two leaves from the Tranquil Tide cardstock using the Leaf Punch in the holiday catalog.  The sentiment is from the Wood Words stamp set.  On the inside of the card I used a sentiment from the Heartland stamp set which says "Just a note to let you know I'm thinking of you".

I used snail adhesive on most of the card, except the flower that is popped using the Stampin Dimensionals.   To finish off the card, I put Wink of Stella on the circle part of the flower.  You can see it a little in the picture below.

What can I say, I love the Merry Cafe stamp set!  Our theme this month for SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew was comfy and cozy. What gives you more of a feel of comfort and cozines than something pumpkin spice.  I love, love, love anything pumpkin spice. I drink it all year round, not just in the fall.  

One of the projects we do each month for creative crew is a simple card and then do a stepped up version.  The above card is my stepped up version of the card below.

UPDATE ON WORLD CARD MAKING DAY SALE!!!

The fast fuse promotion has been so successful that they have had to discontinue it.  Stampin' Up!  never thought it would be so popular, that they have run out of the fast fuse and refills.  The good news is that it will be offered again for five days in a few months.   As soon as I know more about it, I will let you know.

Why is it when you have a week where you have a lot going on, you get sick?  I have 3 classes this week and on Monday night my body did not like something I ate.  Yuk!  I am pretty sure I figured out what made me sick - cookies I ate from a festival.  I won't be doing that again.  My sweet ladies were so kind to reschedule their class for the next night for me. They are the best!

I was doing much better on Wednesday and was able to work and take care of my little ones and have my rescheduled class that night. We had a great time.  

You know what warms my heart?  When I talk to my daughter and we can have deep meaningful conversations about how important prayer is in our lives.  Every day, not just on Sunday's.  We have to read God's word and live His word.  I had a situation I was dealing with on Wednesday evening and God's hand was in every word that was spoken. God is so good!

Thank you for stopping by to see my Fall Friday project!

SCS Creative Crew October 2017 Project #2

StampinUpJarofLoveMerryCafeStampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

For this card we had a picture we had to look at to get inspiration for our project.  I will be honest, this one took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do.  I would look at the picture, go look at my paper, go back to the picture and again go back to my paper.  Then one night after one of my classes my best friend, Robin, and I were talking and I had the Painted Autumn DSP laying on the table.  We both looked at each other and thought I wonder if this paper would work.  I looked on the back of the package and it didn't say it coordinated with any of the grays that Stampin' Up! has.  The dark color is Early Espresso in the paper.  

So, I got out a piece of the Basic Gray (which I used) and the Smoky Slate and laid them on top of the designer series paper.  Oh my goodness, the Basic Gray was perfect!  It was like a light bulb went off and I started getting ideas.  The theme this month was comfy and cozy and to me that describes fall.  You will notice that all of my projects this month have a fall theme to them.  

Here is the picture that we used for inspiration. 

Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking or 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

Did you notice the green plant on the top right corner?  That is where I pulled in the green along with the Cajun Craze, Basic Gray and Very Vanilla.  When I was looking at the picture on my phone, the browns looked like gray, but looking at it bigger here, there is definitely brown in the flooring and the table.  The walls though and some of the pillows look a little gray to me.  How about you?

To make this project you will need the following:

Very Vanilla Thick Cardstock #144237

  • cut at 5 /12" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"  for the sentiment

Did you notice the stamping on the Basic Gray piece of paper?  I did that with a stamp from the Jar of Love using the Smoky Slate ink, but I stamped it off first.  I wanted a real light image since it was for a background.

The only thing that is popped on this card is the sentiment.  I used the 1/2" Gingham Ribbon in Smoky Slate to wrap around the card to give a finished look.

It's time for my October projects from SplitcoastStampers Creative Crew.  One of the challenges for this month was we had to take a sketch and create a card, scrapbook page or 3D project with it.  Below is the sketch that we were given and above is the card I created.

Here is another picture of the card at a different angle.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #5

StampinUpPaintedHarvestLableMePrettyStampSetsFallFridayWeek5StampinScrapperJoyceWhitman

When I saw the projects that Stacey Krats made I feel in love with them for a couple of reasons.  The first reason is her projects are adorable!  Second, I have never heard of Hershey Carmel Apple filled milk chocolate and they are shaped like apples.  Oh, my goodness! They are out of this world!  If you haven't tried them, you must.  You won't be disappointed.  I immediately contacted Stacey and asked her if I could case (create and share everything) her projects for my Fall Friday series.  She was so gracious and said, "sure".  Wasn't that so sweet of her.  I have changed them up a little bit to put my touch on them.  

The sentiment on the project on the right came from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  On the project on the right I used the stamp set Painted Harvest and used the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.  Do you see the leaves on the top of the right hand project?  I made those with the leaf punch that coordinates with the Painted Autumn Suite.  The banner was punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  

For the paper on the project on the right you will need a piece 3 3/4" x 7 3/4" score at 5 1/2"

I thought these apples were perfect for this week as I am going to an apple festival tomorrow with a good friend of mine.  Do you like festivals?  I love them!

Have a great Friday and weekend!
