Blissful Bouquet

Hi there stampers!

We got rain here in the St Louis area yesterday!  Hooray!  It had been so dry around here; that rain is so welcome!

My Paper Pumpkin for October came last Friday when I was up to my eyeballs in final preparations for the craft fair.  So, while I took a peek at the goodies inside, I had to set it aside until last evening.  I know I've said this before, but this is one of my favorite Paper Pumpkin kits!  The little stamp set that's included is so versatile!  I know I will use it on many, many projects!

So, here is a look at the trio of cards made mostly according to the directions, and then a look at each individual card.





Finally, for your viewing pleasure, the video from Stampin' Up! on assembling the kit.  Enjoy!



If you are not currently a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, consider a 3 month prepaid subscription.  You will receive 3 months of kits and no obligation to continue after that.  Or, if  you know it's for you, then don't wait, start your monthly subscription today!  Click the Paper Pumpkin tab at the top of the page above the date - or contact me to get started!

Halloween Treats

Hello stampers!

Thanks to everyone that came out to the Craft Fair at Francis Howell Central on Saturday! We had a great time and it was so nice to see so many familiar faces.  And a huge thank you to Peggy O'Neal for spending your Saturday hanging out with me at the show!

Here is a picture of a portion of my space prior to the start of the show:



And here is a picture of the Halloween Treat Bags I made for the fair:


These were a big hit!  Each treat bag has 2 bags of M&M's.

  • Stamps purchased using a 50 percent Stampin' Rewards discount will not be available for this 15 percent promotional discount. Stamps purchased using Stampin' Rewards discounts will still be 50 percent off retail value of the stamp set.

And 2.  The FHC Craft Fair is on Saturday!  I hope to see you there!  I got my final paperwork from the committee on Wednesday.  It looks to me like more than 100 crafters/exhibitors will be there on Saturday.

Do you remember on Monday when I mentioned I had another project for this week's Leaf challenge from Nance at The Paper Players?  Here it is!  The little fry treat holders are made from 2 of the back (taller) piece of the fry box.  The large oval punch is used to create the "handles".  I've seen these boxes made by several different people, but I believe the first I saw were made by Brian King.  I added the gorgeous maple leaf from Vintage Leaves with the greeting from the September My Paper Pumpkin kit.



Click here to hop on over to The Paper Players to see what others have created and to play along.
