Days of Gratitude

I love the new Days of Gratitude stamp set in the holiday mini. I have been playing with it since I got it. Here are 2 of the many cards I made using the medallion from the stamp set.

This was cased, but of course I can't find it again to give them credit, so if you know who this is please let me know and I will give credit where it is due. I did change the colors and made it a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. Love it!!

October Workshop card

Sorry, I have not gotten the tutorial for the turkey done yet! Life threw a curve ball and I have not had the time to sit down. I promise this week I will get one done.

This is one of the projects for my October workshops. I love this stamp set "Days of Gratitude" in the holiday mini. I used it as a Christmas stamp, but you could use it for just about anything. The colors are Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler...can you say gorgeous!! You can't see it, but I added the champagne shimmer paint to the medallion. I also added a large pearl to the middle of the medallion, but had already taken the pic. It just adds that little extra pizzazz.

This is a luminary that I made using the "Days of Gratitude" stamp set. I told you I loved it!

If you would like to order any of the supplies used here, just drop me a line!

Yes coupon gifts

I got the "Yes" coupon idea off of SC. It works like this: You have a coupon and if someone knows they want to host a workshop they have to give you the coupon before you ask if there is anyone that wants to host. They get a special gift if they do! These are what I have been giving as the gift! I got the idea from another demo, but it didn't print at the bottom of the pic, so if it is you please let me know and i will give you the credit for this cute project!!

Recipe: Cardstock-chocolate chip, crumb cake, more mustard, real red, and pumpkin pie
Punches-Large oval, and scalloped oval, 1 3/4 circle, 1 3/8 circle, 3/4 circle, hole punch
Embossing Folder-lattice embossing folder

Jessika's Banzai prezzies

My daughter is very into Japanese anime and manga. Every year we attend the convention in Utah. We get a hotel room and 3 or 4 of her friends stay with us. I get to be chaperone! They dress up as their favorite characters and have a blast. This year I decided to make them each a memory book. I printed pics of their fav characters and made paper bag albums. Each album includes space to journal so they don't forget a moment, pockets for tickets or what not and a place for pics of them with their fav characters. I hope they like them!!

This is Jessika's and they each look similar but I used each girls fav colors:
