Thanksgiving Turkeys with the Curvy Keepsake Box

I was hoping to make these adorable turkeys that my friend, Janet, made for Thanksgiving but, alas, I ran out of time.  (Check out her blog post about it here.)  The actual turkey that I'm putting in the oven right now has been first on my list this Thanksgiving morning and then it's time to get the mashed potatoes made.  (I may have to enlist my daughter's help with these because I just love the idea of them sitting at each place on the Thanksgiving table.  We'll see how it goes!)

Aren't they adorable??


The Curvy Keepsake Box has got to be one of the most versatile tools!  In this video, you'll learn how to make these little boxes, too!






Thank you, Janet, for this adorable turkey idea!

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!  And happy stamping!

November Stamp Class - Christmas Cards

I'm so exited to share these Christmas cards with you during November!  We'll be creating these during my monthly stamp class and I'd love for you to make them, too!  Click here to view both days and locations for this class and to RSVP.

Card #1
This first card is just too cute using the Yee Haw photopolymer stamp set!  I just love all the western images and being from Texas, I just couldn't resist making cards for my family who live out of state!


The Merry Christmas sentiment comes from the Merry Everything bundle (the bundle includes the stamp set and the punch for 15% off!).  





Card #2
The second card we'll be making this month is this beautiful star card that uses the gold foil sheets and gold embossing.








I hope you'll join me for a fun evening of stamping in November!  Check out all my stamping events on my online calendar and be sure to RSVP to reserve your spot!  Happy Stamping!

Under the Sea Party

"It's finally November!" my daughter says.  Why is she so excited about November?  I'm thinking it's because of Thanksgiving and a break from school.  But no!  It's her birthday month and she is SO excited about her party!  She wants an Under the Sea theme and she's already started designing her birthday cards (using Stampin' Up! punches, paper and embellishments, of course!).  Isn't that a cute mermaid tale shaped card?

She used the 1 1/4" circle punch to make the "scales" from Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Pool Party card stock as well as Gold Glimmer paper.


She spent the other night in the garage putting glue on styrofoam balls and then poured glitter over the top.  These are going to be some sort of decoration / centerpiece on the table (she got the idea off Pinterest - imagine that!).  I'll share other pictures once the centerpieces are all put together.  I'm curious to see what the final result will be.


That's a lot of glitter!  Glad it was in the garage (good suggestion daddy!).


She also painted this wooden plaque that we will put on a stake of some sort to put at the front door.  It's hard to see in the picture but the blue background is all sparkly and glittery (of course!).


She is one crafty girl and I'm so thankful that she enjoys doing her own decorations.  I can just see her as a party planner when she grows up (forget when she grows up, she can party plan now!).  I'll share more pictures of the final projects she comes up with (believe me, we have a long list of things she wants to do!).
