With Sympathy

Hello.  I finally have a new post.  It's getting harder and harder for me to stamp and post.  Not sure what's going on, but I am really worried about getting my Christmas cards done if I keep going at this rate!!!  I needed a sympathy card this week for a co-worker and here's what I made:
I can't seem to stop using my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and these Sweater Weather leaves!  The "With  Sympathy" is from a very old stamp set called More Great Greeting, this is one set I will never get rid of, it's always been one of my favorites for sentiments.

Stamp Sets:  Gorgeous Grunge, More Great Greetings
Paper:  Very Vanilla, Sweater Weather DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky
Extras:  Big Shot, Autumn Accents Bigz Die, Linen Thread

List Holder

Hello!  Today I made a quick and easy shopping/to do list holder.  All it took was a 4" x 9" piece of heavy tag board which I covered (both sides) with DSP the same size using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I used Sticky Strip to cover a binder clip with a 1 1/4" x 2" piece of coordinating DSP and added some ribbon.

I had some 3 1/2" x 8 1/2"scrap paper left over from another project which inspired me to make this.  I'm always looking for a place to write down supplies I need to order and this will hang nicely on the bulletin board in my stamp room.  Hopefully it will help me to remember to order everything I need! :)
You could easily add a magnet to the back so you could hang it on your refrigerator.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Halloween Treat Bag

Hello!  This is one of the projects we made at my Make & Take class yesterday.
I love these little treat bags.  White Baker's Twine was dyed with Tangerine Tango ink mixed with rubbing alcohol for the bow.  The spider was made with 3/4" & 1 1/4" circle punches, a hole punch and the legs were cut using a piece from the Circle Card Thinlits.  I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach it to the bag.  The tag at the top was made with Chalk Talk Framelits, the Tags 4 You stamp set and the Label Bracket Punch.

Thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Flip Card

Hello!  I must admit I am having a terrible time balancing going back to work 5 days a week and stamping.  What that really means is that I haven't been stamping, which then means I don't have anything to post.  :(  I did make this Halloween Flip card a couple of weeks ago, but I always hate to post fall stuff before Sept. 1, so I am finally taking the time to do it today!  :)

Here's the front when it is closed (well, mostly closed, they are hard to keep closed!)  I made this card using my Big Shot and the new Circle Thinlits Die.  
Here's the inside, or back side of the circle.
Another view from the front.  I really love this years Witches Brew DSP and Halloween Hello stamp set!
Stamp Set:  Halloween Hello
Paper:  Witches Brew DSP, Basic Black, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla
Ink:  Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Extras:  Big Shot, Circle Thinlits Die

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!
