Happy Halloween - a treat or treat cute card for you

Happy Halloween to you!  
Had to share the cute card I made for my sons and Elena...It is all Stampin' Up products. 

 I cased my card from this card that I saw while at Diana's studio earlier this month. 

Have some Halloweeny treats and spooky fun!

Get ready for Christmas with bundles - great projects for the kids/grandkids too

If you have children/grandchildren that are in school, they love to make up their own gifts and wrap them.  Here is a great project for them to do for their friends, parents, grandparents, and teachers!  Everything is included in both these kits so all they have to do is put them together and put in a little gift - perfect for candies, cookies, bars, or other snack items (they are food safe boxes)!  
The kits even come with tags they could color and put in the box - wouldn't the grandparents just love that, along with some photos!!  Gee, they would even be good to put your holiday goodies in and give to your co-workers and neighbors!

Here's what you get in one kit:   
1-1/2" x 4" x 4" boxes (you get 6 boxes and save 20% by bundling)

If you need a little bigger box, then this kit would be good 
(4-3/8" x 6" x 6" you get 3)

The children could even color and make designs on the outside of the box, so it would be reusable!

You can order these in my online store, but the Holiday Tag It Bundles are only available October 29-November 19, 2013 so don't wait!

Kit #135811 - Holiday Tag It Decorative Box Bundle for $19.95:  Includes the Stamp a Tag Kit, Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards), and Decorative Window Gift Boxes 
(6 boxes)

Kit #135812 - Holiday Tag It Extra-Large Box Bundle for $18.95:  Include the Stamp a Tag Kit, Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards), and Extra-Large Gift Boxes (3 boxes)

Can’t decide?  Get both and you won’t have to choose only one! 
You can get cards that are pre-cut to match the boxes and envelopes too:


Crumb Cake Cut & Ready Card Bases #135806. Price: $4.95 - Cut & Ready Card Bases make it easy to create a stack of cards in no time. Perfect for making multiples—like holiday cards, party invitations, and more! Also a great option for making just a card or two.  20 pre-scored, pre-cut cards in one color. Each card measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"—scored at 4-1/4". Finished card size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". (also comes in slate gray, very vanilla, whispering white, pool party, cherry cobbler)

Matching envelopes are Medium Crumb Cake Envelopes #107297. Price: $6.50 - Now that you've made a card, it's time to send it in one of Stampin' Up!'s envelopes. With an exclusive flap design, these envelopes will give the final touch of class, especially if you stamp on it! Medium envelopes measure 5 3/4" x 4-3/8." Package includes 40 envelopes.

Inu and Tootsi go to Barktober Fest - dancing dogs?!

This past weekend we took our furbabies, Inu and Tootsi, to the Barktober Fest.  It was a beautiful day and they wore their new outfits - dancing tutus!  I had several fittings with them this past week to alter their outfits so they would be comfortable for them to wear lol.

Inu likes her dresses short so she wore this velvet and tulle ruffled dress - she doesn't like anything touching her tail or even near it!

Tootsi is more modest and is fine with dresses that are a little longer, so she wore the multi-ruffled dancing dress with bows:

But both girls were happy when we took off their outfits, not realizing what was coming up....they were doing fundraiser dog baths - good thing it was sunny and warm, so the dogs dried off pretty quickly.  I just had to make sure that Inu didn't roll in the grass or dirt until she completely dried off!

Inu said it was all worth it though, because she got to run the lure course FIVE times!  She fussed and fussed until she had her turns - waiting and anticipating was the hardest part!!  She sure ran fast around the course 3 times and 2 times in a row, and some people commented on how fast she was!
Now if I could only get her to run that fast on the dog agility course....assuming I could stay ahead of her and keep up!!

Here are some more of the awesome outfits that the other dogs dressed up in - they were the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners:

 Santa and a Christmas present

 Lamb (yes there is a dog underneath!)

 Chia pet

Oct. Stamp Class - Magnificent Maple was a blast! Christmas card stamp camp in Nov.

We had my first Stamp Camp 2013 this past weekend - it was so fun - some mostly healthy snacks too!  Gotta nourish the brain so we can work both sides of it lol!!

 I tried a new setup and a couple new lights.  Everyone said they liked it better....The theme was fall, and each person received a Halloween card and magnificent maple stamp that was used for the 4 cards and mini-muslin bag.  We did several different techniques with the heat embosser and glitter, so you know what that means - everyone went home with some glitter on their body!!  And some Halloween candy in their little muslin bags as well - yum.

There were Halloween ideas to look at and each person got to choose a retired Stampin' Up stamp set - I know the retired sets went home to a place where they will be happy!
 Some new products from Stampin' Up to look at as well...

My new lights look purple in this picture, but you can see at the bottom of the lamp stand it is really more like the bermuda bay color.  

The next stamp camp will be on November 9th (Sat.) and we will be making 10 or 15 Christmas cards and eating Christmas cookies!  Let me know if you want to come, or are interested in the kit, OK?  

 Everyone who comes will get a Christmas gift!!
 Here are some of the items we will be using:
