Halloween Fun...

Who loves Halloween?!  I have to admit...I do!!! 🙋  I prefer to stick to the "giving away fun things" part of the holiday...instead of the spooky/gory part.  (Fun fact about me...I get scared SUPER easy...so I just don't do the haunted house type thing.) But really...any holiday where I get to make cute things and spread around holiday cheer...I'm all in.  Haha.  Here are just a few fun items I made for Halloween this year.  I actually did a Halloween class with these fun items ...


Look how cute they are!  They are all using the Spooky Night Suite!  LOVE!  (And just a little side note...these were also offered as Make & Take's at our night session at the Suite Stampin' Success Event I have been talking about. 😀)

First up, we have a fun decorative plate...

That cat with the coordinating cat punch just takes this over the top!!!!  Swoon!!! 😻

Then an "OWL"riffic candy jar...


Who wouldn't want to receive this as a fun little Halloween gift?!

And last but not least...a FABULOUS treat tube candy holder!  This is made with the Acetate boxes that are in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  We cut them in half and then put in 6 of the Treat Tubes also sold in that same catalog!  LOVE!!!



What do you think?!  Kinda fun, huh?!  LOVE these projects...if I do say so myself.  😀

Thanks for stopping by and visiting!  Let me know if you have any questions!

TGIF Challenge - 129:

It's FRIDAY!!! What does that mean?!  It's TGIF Challenge time!!!!  WHOOOOOO!!!!!!  This week is a sketch challenge...which I LOVE!!!  Check out this perfect sketch:

So much fun, huh?!  Want to see what I made with it?!

Suite Stampin' Success Event ... September 2017

What do flying stars, banners, lots of fabulous people, & stamping galore all have in common?!  Check out the pics below to find out!  😂 These were all apart of the last "Suite Stampin' Event" that my friend & I put on.  Hee.  Ready for photo overload?!  I need to share some of the fun we had!!  This event took over my life for a bit, and I guess I've been playing catch-up a bit.  Which means I am late in posting!  So sorry!  BUT...here goes nothing!!! 

So...a fellow demonstrator friend of mine and I put these events on about twice a year...

 (Aren't we just precious.  😉 That is Wendy on the left and me on the right.)

These events are a demonstrator training event for our teams, as well as any other demonstrator that would like to come!  We even invite those that are thinking of signing up to be a demonstrator!  It is a rocking good time with demonstrations, make & takes, business training, food, fun, etc.  Here are some pics to share about the day...





We set the room up the night before.  Our cute hubby's come to help...

 (Mark is on the left and is Wendy's cute hubby.  My hubby is on the right--Brian.  😀)

Look how well they hung up this cute banner!!!...


And seriously--check out this view...



So fun!  At these events...I really want everyone that attends to feel spoiled, loved, and appreciated...so we do our best to carry out this "theme" through the whole day.  Starting with the name tags they get when they check-in.  Check out these beauties...


And here I am with my name tag! 😀


And check out our cute check-in area...



I LOVE how the tables turned out...


With the fun centerpieces...

 
And fun place settings...

And of course we give out fun gifts/door prizes/etc!!  (However...this was the only pic I could find of the gifts.  I will find more pics soon and share!  😀)

We have swapping and recognitions and just lots of cuties that come.  Here are a few shots showing the fun...



(this is my AMAZING, WONDERFUL, FANTASTIC team that came!!!)
 




I can't believe how lucky I was to be able to share this day with such incredible people...

Hope you enjoy seeing a little view into this fun-filled day!  If you want more info on these events, I'd be happy to share or invite you next time!  Just let me know!  Thanks so much for visiting!!!

October Club Project...Flourishing Eclectic Card Set:

Did you happen to notice that Stampin' Up! is offering a "Buy Three, Get One Free" on Designer Series Paper sale this month?!  👏 Yay!  I LOVE this sales because I LOVE Stampin' Up!'s papers.  It is not often that I make a project without Designer Paper on it.  It's just that good.  😀

Click on the photo below for the details on the sale if you haven't read about it yet:

So much fun, right?!  Well...for club this month I really wanted to use something that showed off one of my FAVORITE packs of paper...the "Naturally Eclectic" Designer Series Paper!  I LOVE the colors, designs, and everything about this paper.  Want to see a fun card set we made with it?!


Colors Pool Party, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Whisper White
Cardstock/Papers: Whisper White, Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Flourishing Phrases
Tools: NONE!
Accessories: Mini Pizza Boxes, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Pool Party Baker's Twine, Delicate White Doilies
 
I kinda fell in love with this card set when I saw it all made.  AND YAY!!!!  Stampin' Up! has little 3"x3" envelopes in the Holiday Catalog!!!  They are fantastic and totally make this card set complete!  

***SHOUT OUT:  I have to give a shout out to my FABULOUS friend, Kasia.  She gave me a card set just like this...made with the Painted Harvest set...and I asked her if I could copy it.  She said yes, so that is how this card set was born!  Here is a pic of the card set & box she made...

Isn't this SO CUTE????!!!!  I mean serious...who wouldn't want to copy it?!  LOVE! THIS!!! 

The box that the cards are in are the Mini Pizza Boxes that are in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  LOVE these boxes.  (And YES! They are food safe!!  WOOT!)  We just put the box together, and then added this belly band that slides on and off the box.  So you can give out the cards and then still have a box to give away with some fun treats inside!


I mean serious...how cute is this box?  Seriously...sign me up for ANYTHING with Lemon Lime Twist on it! Hee. 


Thanks so much for visiting!  Hope you enjoy!  And again...if you want to get supplies and directions to make two free projects each month...let me know!  I can tell you all about my club group! 😀
