Cards For Heros

I've seen on a couple of different blogs about Cards for Heros, I always think it sounds like such a great and easy way to support our troops but sadly I never get around to actually making and sending the cards...I am glad to have friends that are more motivated then me :) ! A friend decided to collect a bunch of cards and send them in and asked for any donations. She mentioned there was a need for holiday cards, so here was my contribution.
I wanted to make something that would be simple and easy to mass produce. I loved how this card sparkled...oops did I say sparkle....I forgot on my friends blog there was a mention not to use any glitter or rhinestones, or basically any form of holiday "bling" because it can mess with the heat vision goggles, and also make soldiers stand I modified the card and took away the Dazzling Diamond glitter, I liked the original better but I understand the here is my non-shiny version
I wish you could see the dimension a little better, the Baja Breeze cs is popped out with dimensionals kindof shadowboxing the snowflake. I used craft cs for my base and embossed my sentiment in Winter White ep. I absolutely LOVE this cute little snowflake punch...I see myself putting that little cutie to work on alot of Christmas cards and tags. Thanks for stopping by!

The Hostess with the MOSTEST!

We had our monthly Stampin Up Club night a few days ago (scroll down to see the projects), and our hostess for this month completely outdid herself!! Look at the AMAZING treats she brought to share...EVERYONE loved them of course...Lauree you are too crafty girl!!

She made these adorable treat bags filled with a great mixture of dried fruit, nuts, cereal squares..really I don't know all that was in there only that it was so good! Then she also made these super cute Caramel Apple kits!

Yeah, we loved it all!!

Trick or Treat Stamp Nite

Wow, it has been awhile since I have posted, its been kindof crazy at my house but hopefully the crazy has settled down and I'll have a little more time to stamp and post because there is probably a million ideas of cards and scrapbook pages and holiday crafts that I want to try out~!
Last week was time once again for my Stamp Club. I mentioned before that I {heart} Halloween and so I decided to have a "Trick or Treat" theme, all of our projects were different ideas to share treats...
Our first project was this cute little bat...we covered a york peppermint paddy with a few punched out pieces of paper..seriously SO SIMPLE! And so CUTE! we used the Scallop, the Photo Corners, the 1 1/4 Circle, and the 1 3/8 Circle punches
For our next project we used the new Pillow Box die from Stampin Up! I love how easy these dies are to use, in no time flat you have a great treat for classrooms, sports teams, handouts really anything!! We used Tangerine Tango cs for the box, and the new Kiwi Kiss ribbon, for our tag we used a stamp from "Eat Drink and Be Scary" available now in the new Holiday Mini Catalog. To get the variety of color we colored on the stamp with old olive, pumpkin pie and basic black stampin write markers.
And for our final project we made a boxy'll find a great tutorial on how to make this bag yourself HERE. I loved how this turned out, I started with and Perfect Plum cs base, and embellished with Ghostly Greetings dsp from Stampin Up. A little more ribbon and a brad finished off this cute box.
I hope the girls had fun and enjoyed making their projects...see you next month!
