Happy Halloween! Licorice Witch Brooms

All SUPPLIES Stampin' Up!: brights designer series paper stack, early espresso bakers twine and the Mixed Medley hostess stamp set
I made these adorable witches brooms for my club class this last week. They were so simple and quick. I purchased chocolate twizzlers from the store and packaged them in our 1" cello bags. I then cut a piece of designer series paper 2-3/4" x 9". I fringed the top of my paper about 3/4" from the top and 1-1/2" from the bottom all the way along the 9" length. You will find that the designer paper has about 1/2" between the bottom and top fringe, that is where I placed my adhesive, all the way across. I took that designer paper and wrapped it, adhesive facing in, around my twizzler, a little less than 1-1/2" up and not quite flush with the end of the licorice. By leaving a little space between the end of the paper and where your twizzler ends lets the broom bottom fan out just a bit. I hope that makes sense.
I finished off my broom by wrapping some bakers twine around it and adding a cute stamped web.

Tea Shoppe Technique

Ever wonder where we demonstrators get our great ideas? From Stampin' Up! of course! And other creative demonstrators too. That's what I love about what I do, the community of demos is one of sharing and fun! Most of what I do is an extension of what someone else may have shared. It's a compilation of many things sometimes. And when all else fails, SU! is there with videos like these. This little box is adorable and I had to share it with you. I can't wait to see how you adapt it and make it your own. I can see it as a birthday theme or a treat for a new mom. Feel free to link back a picture to this post and share what you did!

Thinking you might want 20% off of all your SU! products plus an opportunity to have your business pay for itself and even earn a little extra? You can become a SU! demo for just $99! And through September 16th you will get an adorable Halloween shadow box kit FREE.

Preserved Catalog - Case

This card layout is from the 2012 Holiday Catalog, which is why it is "cased" Copy And Share with Everyone. I changed it a bit of course! We made this cute card at my last stamp club meeting. Isn't the new designer series paper gorgeous? 

Stamp set: Perfectly Preserved
Ink: raspberry ripple and early espresso
Paper: Orchard Harvest designer series paper; early espresso, island indigo, lucky limeade, and whisper white card stock
Accessories: island indigo ruffled ribbon, scallop punch and dimentionals

I especially love the apples from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set. We popped out the top and bottom apples but the middle one is actually 3 apples glued back to back. I have a quick tutorial to show you.

You want to start by stamping and die (or punching as the case may be) cutting 3 apples. You will want to fold each of these in half.

I lined them up and put glue on my center apple. I made sure that they are all facing the same way, you don't want to glue them together and find one is upside down.

I adhered one side and then the next to my center apple. 

You will then have an apple that looks like this. When you put it in an envelope the center apple will fold down easily.

Happy Stampin'

Perfectly Preserved

I can't say I love this set enough! It is so versatile and so fun. It has everything I look for in a set, images, verses and they have a matching punch, or in this case framelits die set. I love it! What I also love is that you can get the stamp set and dies in a set at 15% off! Don't we love a good deal!
We made this card at my last stamp.
This card was so much fun to make. I borrowed the layout from Amy O'Neill, I love how she used the paper designs. The fun gingham flower was something I learned at convention from Carrie Cudney, you can see my project and directions on how to make the flower here. I never got around to adding my verse but we did in class using the modern label punch.

Stamp set: Perfectly Preserved
Ink: early espresso, raspberry ripple, lucky limeade and island indigo
Paper: island indigo, cajun craze and whisper white card stock; orchard harvest designer series paper
Accessories: 1-1/4" scallop circle, Cannery Set framelits dies and dimentionals

The Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is here!

I am so excited about this publication! It's gorgeous! This catalog is by no means "Mini", it is now magazine style and has more pages than ever before. There are tons of new products which you may have noticed on my Frosty Friends card I posted a week ago. That stamp was new as was the snowflake die. And so much more. What I am really excited about is the product bundles that give you a savings of 15%, that helps a lot. If you have not gotten your copy of the mini catalog please let me know and I will get you one asap.
You can see the full catalog by clicking the link on the left.
