Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps - Pumpkin Face

Hi Everyone! I'm taking these DELICIOUS sugar cookie to my weekend Stampin' UP! parties for the guests to try. So fun to have an excuse to stamp in the kitchen with the Holiday Sweet Pressed Cookie Stamps 125152.

This set of 3 silicone stamps with wooden handle will take you through February. Although I think you could also stamp a {heart} to let someone know you love them anytime! Great family kitchen craft or gift for the baker in your life :)

I use a 1-1/2" cookie scoop and the batch makes 16-18 cookies. I added a little food coloring to pop my pumkin face. I think it makes it more festive, don't you?!

The sugar cookie recipe that comes with the set is so YUMMY. It's more of a butter sugar cookie and so good with a cup of tea or coffee.

Jeff's Birthday Card - Gone Fishin' with the Owl Punch

IMG_0474Hi Everyone! Hubby Jeff loves fact that's what he's doing right now! The Owl Builder punch helps create all type of owl charactors. Here's one as a fisherman. One of my Designer Paper Dolls Lisa swapped a card using the Fancy Fans folder as water...Lisa - I told you I would so use this idea! lol

I free-hand cut the top part of the card once it was all assembled.

For the fishing pole - it's a sliver cut of Cajun Craze card stock with Linen Thread tied around.

The fish are made using a petal from the Blossom Builder punch and the heart from the Owl punch is the tail.

The fishing vest is the 'belly' piece trimmed at the bottom and cut in half.

Island Indigo
Cajun Craze

Scrappin' In No-Time - It's Fall Yall!

DSCN2417Hi Everyone! One of my Designer Paper Dolls, Davette, is my partner in creating this class...Thanks Davette!

Here's our newest monthly offering/inspiration that kicked off last month - Scrappin' in No Time :) It's using the 12"x 12" Divided Page Protectors (127690) and a pack of Designer Paper to make a monthly scrapbook. There are 10 page protector sheets in the pack meaning you have 20! 12x12 pages!

September's Scrappin' in No Time uses Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper (126895), coordinating card stock colors, the Owl Builder Punch 118074, Cannery Framelits Die set 127822, and Autumn Accents Die 127812 in the scrappin' layout. Cannery and Autumn Accents images coordinate with the images found in Orchard Havest DP. :) Thanks SU!

And stinkin' cute are these owls!?

Scrappin' in No Time is what I call a smash-up between scrapbooking and a photo album. The page dividers' layouts do the work for us - simply add some photos, scrap some spots, and you have a month/season/event all recorded!

What I like most about this approach is you don't have to crop your photo *unless you want too! Simply slide your 4x6 photos into place. Add as much or as little of the 'scrappin' part.

Okay..I know some of you noticed LOL the non-SU trees and lettering. This paper just begged for a big tree image, so a Cricuit was used to die cut the images. :)

You'll note plently of spaced to journal to tell future readers the who, what, when and where. DSCN2418

Class time offerings:
Sept. 26, 2012 at 6pm or
Sept 27, 2012 at 6pm
