Easy Events - Like Christmas!

I really like the ease of this card -- along with the cheery colors that it has! It's a lot of fun to make, too. In fact, one of the easiest ways to step up a card is to add a bit of Designer Series Paper. With that one simple and affordable step, you add color, pattern and a whole lot of personality!

The Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks are the most versatile patterned paper packs that SU! offers. The designs include polka-dots, stripes, printed text and brocade patterns and they come in easy-to-coordinate Color Collection groups. The Brights, Subtles, Regals and Neutrals Collections each include 2 sheets of each of the two double-sided designs in all 10 colors. The In Color Collections each include 4 sheets each of the two double-sided designs in the 5 colors for either the 2010-2012 or the 2011-2013 In Color Collections.

The coordinating colors and combination of patterns make paper stacks versatile enough for simple elegance, over the top feminine and even masculine projects. You’ll be amazed at the value of these big Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks. Sheet by sheet they cost just a bit over half the price of other Designer Series Papers. Order your Patterns Designer Series Paper Stacks today and experience the fun of creating with patterned paper!

I have at least one package of each of these and use them constantly! So glad I have them around -- it's a really good value, too!

Blowin' in the Wind

Or at least the leaves on my cards are supposed to look like they're blowin' in the wind. Do you see that when you look at the cards?

This is using a direct to paper technique I CASEd from Michelle Zindorf. I love all the ideas she has.

Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, River Rock, Old Olive card stock; Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon; Whisper White and Chocolate Chip inks; Lattice Embossing Folder, Little Leaves Sizzlet; Big Shot; Paper Snips.

With the wind blowing around like crazy with this fall weather, almost all the leaves are off the trees already. There are a few stubborn Pin Oaks with their leaves yet, but all the others are really blowing around, just like on the card!!

Hope your day stays in one place and doesn't blow you around too much!! Thanks for stopping by ~~ Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!

This is why . . .

Beginning today through December 15, Stampin' Up! hostesses can earn an extra $35 in additional Stampin' Up! products when they host a $350 workshop. What a great offer! A lot of my friends are going to be hosting events soon, so they are going to be getting some extra Hostess money - I just know it!!

Isn't this cool?

I wanted to share some pictures of a great Halloween wreath one of my downline, Rhonda, made. It's so fantastic and she's so incredibly talented. She's also in love/addicted to the Simply Scored tool. And that's okay.

So many classy touches . . .
What an amazing project! What an amazing crafter!! You go, Rhonda!!

Thanks for sharing what you do. Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'!
