Table Treats for Nephews Rehersal dinner-

I had the pleasure of helping one of my sisters, Charlie make some treat holders for her son's wedding last Sat Oct 18th.
We used the small treat boxes in the Stampin Up Holiday catalog. They wee adorable!! We stamped all over the flat boxes with the spatter stamp from Goregous Grunge. Made a tag with their names and date accented with a tad of burlap ribbon. They put the Bride and Grooms favorite candy insdie- snickers and peanut butter cups.

The place settings were so cute, everyone loved the treats!
Thanks for letting me share with you and give you an idea and hope you will use the tiny treat boxes for some thing fun!
Happy Stampin!

Christmas Stampin Retreat projects

The Christmas Stampin Retreat last weekend was a big hit, I hear. I helped plan two of the 3D projects with my fellow stamping Sisters, Denise Sullivan and Sami Brown. But, I was unable to attend because of a family wedding out of state and my husband, Doug and I took my Mother to see her grandson  Alec be wed in Gulfport, MS.
So I wanted to show you the two projects I did- Thinking about hold a class if anyone is interested. Or, they can be done "To Go" cause you will have written directions.

Here is the first- An Altered Cutting Board Receipe Holder

It is a white plastic cutting board decorated with DSP from Nordic Noel suite in the Holiday Stampin Up catalog.

Here is the second project- An Altered Charger Plate
This is so much cuter in real life, photo doesnt do it justice. The plate was purchased at Hobbly Lobby and they have gold, silver, red, green and the new popular Burlap!
Here is one I did sprying chalkboard paint in the center-

This is also so much better in real life! I did one last year on the red and wrote Happy Valentines Day on it

Gotta run to get some chores done this morning, but wanted to share and show you my projects.
Happy Stampin!

What are you doing today? Did you know it is World Card Making Day? I hope you have time to stop and stamp a cute card today. I had a small WCMD in OKC this morning.

We had a wonderful time sharing and laughing while we worked on our cards. Peggy, Carol and Mother really enjoyed getting together.

Swap card to share

 Welcome to my Blog

Let me share my September swap with you-
I did a card for Halloween. It uses the Motley Crew DSP and the Freaky Friends stamp set.
 I just realized the background I used for taking my photo, looks like part of the card, but it is not.

I love to use black as the card base and add bright colors to make the objects pop. I CASED this layout from the talented Susie Wood at
Doesnt this set just make you laugh? The DSP could stand alone-such fun characters on this sheet. They just come to life -
My second project
is the curvey box from the Holiday catalog. So much fun to play with and already so many ideas out on pintrest and stampin connection!
Just  LOVE this framelit! You must order it !

Thank you for stopping by and hope you are excited to start celebrating World Stamping Day with us and make some thing yourself!
