Wondrous Wreath and Fall Fest Card Class

This Tuesday, October 28th is our next monthly stamp class in Fort Worth from 7 pm until 9 pm.  We'll be making a Thanksgiving card (with the adorable pumpkins from the Fall Fest set) and a Christmas card using the Wondrous Wreath stamp set for FREE with a minimum purchase.  Would you like to make these cards, too?  Simply RSVP online and I'll see you Tuesday! (Contact me for exact location.)

Did you know that even if you are not local to me, you can still receive the cards for FREE as well?  That's right!  Simply place your online order and you'll receive these cards in your mailbox!  Use the following hostess code to qualify:  BKQUDMPK

(The hostess code box can be found in the lower, left-hand side of screen when you view your online shopping cart.)

Both cards this month feature a stamp set that coordinates with a Framelit set (Framelits are what cut out the images with the Big Shot).  And, the best part is when you purchase these two products as a "bundle", you'll save 15%!

Thanksgiving Card:


Wondrous Wreath: (one of my favorites in the Holiday Catalog!)


I hope you'll make plans to come stamp these adorable cards this Tuesday evening!  Happy Stamping!

Christmas Treats and Sweets Boxes

Have I got some cute little Christmas boxes to share with you today!  I can't take the credit for creating these adorable projects, though.  These were swaps I received from other demonstrators in the Cowtown Crafters group during our monthly gathering.   We meet on the second Friday of each month for an evening of stamping, sharing and inspiration!  (Just one of the many benefits of becoming a Cowtown Crafter!)  I always look forward to the inspiration from these creative stampers!

Would you like to be my guest at our November demonstrator gathering?  I invite you to come and see what all the fun is about!  Contact me today to get all the details (!

This  first adorable little box was created by Vicky.  Have you gotten your hands on the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit die that creates this box?  This is one awesome die!

Cindy also used the Curvy Keepsake Thinlit Die to create this cute Santa box.  Love it!

This fun box was created by Sharon.  I love that the lid is attached to the base (see the second photo below) and opens like a pizza box.   Two boxes can be made from one sheet of 8.5 X 11" card stock.


These Christmas boxes can easily be adapted for any occasion - Halloween, Thanksgiving, birthdays, wedding favors and more!

Being a part of the Cowtown Crafters demonstrator group is so inspirational!  With so many benefits of being a demonstrator, you can't go wrong!  Join before the end of October and you'll also receive FREE paper for your first 6 months!

Happy Stamping!

So, in honor of Throwback Thursday, I wanted to share this fun Two Pocket tutorial with you!  Wouldn't these be an adorable way to send a Halloween treat to your friends?

Shop for these and all your stamping supplies 24/7 through my Online Store.  And, be sure to check out the Weekly Deals and the Clearance Rack for tons of savings!
