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.

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Everyday Label Punch #144668, 2017 Holiday Catalog, Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

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!

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.

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
  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" for the lids of the cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Cajun Craze Cardstock #119684

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"
  • cut at 3" x 4 3/4" for the two cups
  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf

Garden Green Cardstock #102584

  • cut at 2" x 2" for the leaf
  • scraps for the hearts

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 2" x 3 3/4"

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.

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!

Count My Blessings

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings #144790, Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613, Stitched Shapes Framelits # 145372, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking or 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

I created this card a couple of weeks ago for my stamp camps last week.  When I was on our demonstrator FaceBook page last week, there were 3 more just like it.  They had used the same designer series paper but with different sentiments.    I guess great minds think a like.  LOL  

This is a very easy card and is perfect when you need a card in a hurry.  You can use it for any occasion by changing the sentiment.  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Early Espresso Cardstock #119686

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

Tangerine Tango Cardstock #111349

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

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

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper #144613

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

I stamped both sentiments (on the front and inside of the card) in Tangerine Tango ink.  I cut the sentiment on the front using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  For the Early Espresso piece I used the Layering Oval Framelits.

I usually don't buy a stamp set unless I can make three cards off the top of my head with it.  This stamp set though, I bought just for the sentiments.  I am in love with this font.  It is so pretty to me.

Fall Friday 2017 Week #4

Stampin Up, Stampin' Up! Spooky Cat stamp set #144749, Cat Punch #144666, Spooky Night DSP #144610, created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

 

This weeks project is perfect if you need a quick little treat for someone.  I used the Carmel Apple Pops for inside of them.  All of my attendees at my Stamp Camp classes this week received these. A couple of my ladies loved the black cat so much they ordered it right away.  Guess what? You can get the stamp set and punch as a bundle and save 10%!

To make this project you will need the following products:

Basic Black Cardstock #121045

  • cut at 2" x 2 1/4"

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut at 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Spooky Night Designers Series Paper #144610

  • cut at 2 1/2" x 6 1/4" score at 3" and 3 1/4"

Fold and burnish (go over your score lines with a bone folder) your score lines, but be gentle as this is designer series paper, so it is a little thinner than our normal cardstock.  For the hold for the stick of the candy, I used our 1/8" Handheld Circle Punch.  I centered it between the two score lines.   

The sentiment is stamped with Tangerine Tango in and punched out with the Classic Label Punch.  I used snail adhesive to put on the cat and the sentiment.  I then put 3 glue dots on the top edge of the paper, put the candy inside and adhered the two ends together.

I made 15 of them in about 15-20 minutes.  These are very easy and fast to make if you need a lot of them.

On Wednesday night Mr. Wonderful and I took out the old countertops and sink.  We weren't sure how long this would take or how hard it will be as we have never done anything like this before. Oh my goodness!! I don't know how my countertops stayed on!  My island was only attached with two screws, the section with the sink, two screws, but the little piece between my stove and refrigerator, it had 3 screws.  It was a lot easier than we thought it would be.  

What a crazy busy day we had yesterday though.  Early in the morning, I was hoping to sleep in, we had the plumber here to do some work for us in our upstairs bathroom.  Then about an hour later we had the carpet guy here to measure our upstairs as we are replacing all of the carpet on that level.  When that is finished we are done with the upstairs! Yay!!!

As soon as he leaves, we run out to get some lunch and just as we get our food, we get a phone call that the installers for our countertops are on their way. So much for lunch. It didn't take them too long to install them.  I love them!!!!

We had about an hour break and then plumber came to hook everything up.  It seemed like he took forever, even though I know he didn't.  I wanted to get in there and clean up my kitchen and get everything put back where it belonged.  Here are some pictures of our adventure.

The picture on the left is from yesterday morning, before they got here and the one on the right is with the new countertops in.  They are so pretty.  I had to wait 4 hours before I could put anything on them and make sure I washed them down a couple of times to get all the dust off of them.  

Here are the final pictures of my new kitchen.

I am so happy the way it all turned out.  I just want to stay in my kitchen!  

I hope everyone has a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Smitten Mittens Card

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Smitten Mittens stamp set #144931, Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #144686, Many mittens Framelits #144672,  created by Stampin Scrapper, for more cards, gifts, ideas, scrapbooking and 3D projects, go to stampinscrapper.com, Joyce Whitman

This is one of the cards that we made at my Christmas Card Classes this month.  The first time I saw this stamp set in the catalog it went on my wish list.  You can use this stamp set for Christmas, but you can also use it for winter projects too. I love the combination of the mittens with the Winter Wonder Embossing Folder. This stamp set has matching framelits, Many Mittens, and you can get both of them as a bundle for 10% off.  This stamp set just keeps getting better and better!

To make this card you will need the following products:

Cherry Cobbler Cardstock #119685

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

Whisper White Cardstock #100730

  • cut 2 at 4" x 5 1/4"
  • cut 2 at 1" x 3" for the snowflakes and tops of mittens

When I embossed the piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Winter Wonder folder I put the image to the left side of the paper.  I wanted you to be able to see more of the embossed image.  If you put the embossed image in the center of your paper and then put the mittens on top, you wouldn't have seen much of the stamped image.   

I stamped the snowflakes on the mittens and the top part of the mittens with Cherry Cobbler ink.  The snowflakes are adhered with Stampin Dimensionals.  When it was all assembled, I added Wink of Stella to the sections of the embossed snowflake that were visible. DO NOT put the Wink of Stella on the stamped snowflakes.  The ink will bleed and it will make a mess. Below is a picture so you can see better what I did.

To finish the card, I added a double loop bow made with the White Bakers Twine.  For the sentiment inside the card, I used a stamp from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set.   It said "warm heartfelt greeting for a very Merry Christmas".  I also stamped the Cherry Cobbler snowflake on the inside of the card and the envelope.    

I really appreciate you stopping by today and checking out my blog. I hope you all have a terrific day!
