Falling For Leaves Joy Fold Card

Wow, Wow, and Wow again! This was my very first OnStage Live and I have to say, it exceeded my expectations. If you have ever thought about becoming a demonstrator, this alone is reason enough!  But for now, I have a fun project to share with you, using a fun fold, called the Joy Fold. I love cards that use this fold, it's kind of like having a card in a card. 

And I LOVE these colors together! I think this is my new Fall favorite combo! What's yours? The colors I used here are Merry Merlot, Old Olive and Crushed Curry and Very Vanilla.

Stampin' Up! introduced a couple of Craft and Carry Bags, the Craft and Carry Stamparatus bag and the Craft and Carry Tote. The tote is a limited edition that is exclusive to demonstrators only. It will be available during Sale-a-bration for new demonstrators only that choose that as part of their starter kit. But, we current demonstrators are able to purchase this now and if you love it as much as I do, and want it now, just join my team today and you can add it to your starter kit NOW! Wowsers! Seriously, I would just join now and get it myself because I would be afraid that if I waited, they will be gone before I had a chance to sign up. But that's just me.
If you would like to chat about joining my team, contact me, I would love to talk to you about it,

Falling For Leaves Treat Holder

Good Morning from Orlando Florida! All I can say is just WOW! The weather is like Summer and so unlike the weather back home! But it's everything! Epcot Center is UH-Mazing! A great big shout out to my aunt for touring me around and taking me to the Food and Wine Festival. Today is the first official day of OnStage so I am getting ready to head out now, but I wanted to share a quick project with you. I made this during my Facebook Live Sunday, it's a larger variation of the one I did on YouTube a couple of years ago, (you can see that down below)

This simple treat holder is made using the envelope punch board and is essentially made the same as the one in the video, only this one is made using a piece of DSP cut 6" x 6". All of the materials used are listed below. 

Happy Stamping,

Falling For Leaves Meets Buffalo Check

Hello and welcome to my blog! I'm all packed and ready to head for the airport first thing tomorrow morning to head for OnStage Live in Orlando with Stampin' Up! To say I am excited, is an understatement that's for sure. 
But, I do have a fun project to share with you tonight, and it's a simple card using the Falling For Leaves and Buffalo Check stamp sets. 
This card is quick and simple creating the torn edges of the Pumpkin Pie layer just added a little texture against the Buffalo Check . The list of supplies can be found below. 
Have a great week and the next time you hear from me, I will be in sunny Florida! Until then, Happy Stamping,
