Spooky Sweets Halloween Scrapbook Page, Halloween Luminaria, Cards & Treat Box

Hello Everyone!  Halloween is almost here.  Are you ready for it???  Here is a scrapbook page we made at one of my monthly club workshops.  I used to have a monthly scrapbook club for years and we made many different kinds of scrapbooks.  Now this same club has switched over to a sort of "Anything Goes" Club and hostess gets to pick a type of project each month.  So lately we have done several Stampin' Up! kits, a technique called "One Sheet Wonder", a home decor, and etc.

We also made this Halloween Luminaria in September and had so much fun.  I got an idea from the Dashing Deer Luminaria in the Holiday Catalog (see page 9).  I am going to CASE that soon:-)

I couldn't pass another Halloween without the Cat Punch:-)  And those pumpkins from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper make it perfect for Halloween!

This was a super fun card to make with the new Shimmer Paint!  I stamped on a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the Frost White Shimmer Paint using Sponge Dauber for my background.  I really like how it turned out on the Vellum Card Stock.

Making a treat box is so easy with the new Takeout Thinlits Dies!  I love this coffin treat box for Halloween!  So fun and perfect!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!  Have a fun Halloween everyone!!!

Elves Technique Workshop using Stampin' Up! Stamparatus & Bonus Project

Hello everyone!  I finally put together an advanced technique class using the Stampin' Up! Stamparatus.  These cards are super adorable and the techniques are fantastic!  Possibilities are endless.......

Class Details:
  • Date - November 4th (Sunday)
  • Time - 1:00 pm -4:00 pm
  • Where - Meg's Studio (Sequim, WA)
  • Class Fees - $25 per person including 2 Stampin' Up! Blends Alcohol Markers (Dark Poppy Parade and Dark Shaded Spruce). 
  • RSVP - Click HERE to register by October 28th.  Space is limited.
Class Projects:
We will be making 2 cards focusing on learning advanced techniques using the Stamparatus.  I also have a bonus project that I will show you two great techniques.

Have you wondered how to stamp several images perfectly in a circle?  You can do that easily with the Stamparatus and it's so fun!!!

And these elves are so adorable!  For this card I will teach you how to make a template for your Stamparatus.  You will go home with your own template so that you can make more at home!

My next card was a challenge for me because I wanted the truck to pull these carts but the stamp image is actually facing in opposite direction and the bar that connects from the cart would not work....:-)

Look carefully at the stamp image of the truck from the stamp case on the left.  My stamped truck on the card is facing the other way.   Pretty cool???  For this card I will show you how to mirror an image using the Stamparatus.  It's really awesome.  You are welcome!

Here is my bonus project featuring two great techniques!   Have you wished you had the right size of Framelits?  Me too!!!  For this card I will show you how to change the size of a die-cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

You can't tell from this picture but these cute elves wobble on the card!  I have to give credit to Monica Gale, a super talented UK demonstrator, for her wonderful inspiration.

Here is a quick video for you!

Happy Stampin'!!!
