It’s an exciting day today….we are going to go a stampin in the Indian Trail Area!! I am very excited about it! A friend of mine who I met at a Stampin Up workshop is doing a show. I haven’t seen her in probably 2 years. She has a group of about 10-12 ladies that are very new to stamping….some are mother/daughters which I just love! They are all interested in card making and scrapbooking so this is a sneak peak of one of the projects we are doing. It’s a 12×12 scrapbook page. Using the leaves set out of the mini catalog and then making this cute little turkey again out of punches! A touch of the fall designer paper :). Whatcha think??
Hope everyone has a great Saturday :)….enjoy the weekend.

I am a little behind on posting, but had to share some of my fall favorites! We had a camp 2 weeks ago and we focused on fall (which is such a fun time of year). I am loving making turkey’s out of punches!! I told my husband I wanted to host Thanksgiving at our house this year just so I can put these place setting tags and little turkeys everywhere!! haha He said I could as long as I had them everywhere and didn’t forget to do them! Ha. Such a sweet hubby! Anyway, you can see lots of Stampin Up goodies!! The jumbo wheel is underneath the chocolate stripped ribbon. A very simple fun way to make a card!! I will have to say I am in love with this new SU ribbon. It’s new in this catalog and it’s so easy to use, it’s extremely soft but goes where you want easily, but doesn’t pop off the card too much (you know most ribbon this side is so big/thick it costs most to ship)….the wreath was made with a fall stamp set I have blogged about before- I can’t remember the name….it’s got the peacock/bird image….such a fun one!! Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful fall weather!! I know me and the family truly are! Hope you have a blessed day!

Tonight I got me some new goodies and I was so excited to get to play with them! I used the Stampin Up textured background plates for the green cardstock on the back. That is Stampin Up Garden green. Then I used this fun new animal paper. I textured the edges with a Stampin Up paper tool that I just really enjoy! It pops the paper up and gives it kind of a messy, sharp texture to it. I used this fun silky ribbon I received and the animal stamps to match the paper. I wanted to texture the animals a bit. I didn’t have any fun flock in the colors I needed which made me sad, but I did have some glitter. So I used some crystal effects Stampin Up has and some glitter. It’s not super easy to see, but the birds neck and the horse’s white part on his head is glittery and raised up!
We have an awesome Stampin Up Fall Themed camp tonight. Will have to post pictures of what we made tomorrow. I hope everyone has a good night :).
