Curvy Keepsake Box

Have you seen all the cute critters made with the Curvy Keepsake box?
They are all over! 
Do a search on Pinterest and you will be amazed at all the things you can do with that framelits die! 
Here is just one of the critters. 

Only a few were made at the Stamp Along though. 
Do you like 3D projects or would you rather just have cards? 
Please feel free to leave suggestions for me.

Ornamental Pine and Winner

First of all the winner of the drawing from the comments
is Cindy! 
Sorry I didn't do the drawing before the Stamp Along. 
Cindy, I will have it at the next Stamp Along for you. Please remind me to give it to you. 
I have it packed already!
Who will be the winner for this month? 
Get your name in the drawing by leaving a comment between now and the next Stamp Along. 

These three cards are very similar. 
Can you see the differences? 
The one that will be coming to the next Stamp Along is a fourth version, not pictured, of this same card. 
If you think it looks familiar, it is. It was at the Stamp Along but there were only a few there so it will be back next time.

Christmas packages! Oh, my!

Wednesday I went to a box making class!
What an adventure! 
Four, fun loving friends, and I were instructed to make these beautiful boxes. 
Our instructor had a lot of patience and did an awesome job teaching us the art of making these boxes! 
They are not difficult when done step by step but there are lots of steps! 

This one is made from kraft card stock with raffia and a pretty bow. 

This one is white card stock. It is a little lighter weight and was easier to fold. 
You can see the stamping on this one. I used the Ornamental Pine set on both of them. 

Here they are together.

Here you can see the top of my third box before it is decorated. 

This shows the inside of the cover and inside of the bottom. 
I love learning new techniques! 
Especially with friends!

Birds for Fall and Christmas - Stampin' Up! style

Wetlands is a very versatile set! 
Coupled with the new Four Feathers set, it makes a very nice birthday card. 
Do you agree?
Did you notice the Work of Art set adding the clouds behind the goose?

Cardinals and Christmas seem to go together! 
Using the Bird Punch, it is easy to make this pretty cardinal.
Add a bow with ribbon seam binding to a Daydream Medallions wreath and you have a 
beautiful Christmas card. 
This is one of my favorites this time. 
I cut lots. 
Let me know if I need to tie a bow for you. 

If you need supplies and are going to order on line.....Please use the hostess code
This code will be good until Monday the 10th of November 2014.
Using the code will link your order to the Stamp Along order.
Thank you!

Hello Fall

Fall is in the air!
These are a few of the fall themed cards that will be at the November Stamp Along. 
There will also be some Christmas ones. 
Which one of these is your favorite?

The one on the left below will also have other sayings available. I think it would make a nice Christmas card with that greeting instead of the Thinking of You. 
Do you agree?

Flower Patch Class cards

These are the cards that were included with the purchase of the Flower Patch set bundle. 
They were pretty intensive to make but everyone enjoyed the finished project.

This one is a special fold so you see the front and the inside of that one. 
Love the Blackberry Bliss color!

This one is all over Pinterest and I knew that I would have to make it as soon as I saw it! 
There is a little bit of a cheat sheet if you would like to try one of your own.

Table settings and a Flower Patch card

Last week a friend and I went to the Museum and saw the table setting display. 
Very enjoyable! 
Some people have wonderful imaginations. 
Here are a few of the displays. 

Today a few friends and I went to a luncheon and fashion show that had some beautiful table settings. 
This is the table at which we were seated. 

Following are a few of the other beautiful table settings.

We were served a wonderful salad, main course, and a warm apple strudel with ice cream and caramel sauce for dessert. 
This was the main course.

It was delicious!
Wish I would have remembered to picture the salad and dessert! 

After the meal we watched a fantastic fashion show. 
These are the models that were so kind to give their time. 
Each one must have changed, at least, five times! 

Wonderful day! 

Here is a card that was inspired by one that I saw on Sandi's blog: stamping

This is my version and it is all packed and ready for the November Stamp Along. 
I just did a class using the Flower Patch set and Flower Fair Framelits dies. This card also uses the Dotty Angles set. I will show you those cards tomorrow. 
This one is quite plain and simple by comparison to those done in the class.
