StampinHeaven Fall Retreat

I've been away from my blog longer than I planned but the last few weeks I have been very busy prepping for my Annual StampinHeaven Fall Retreat which took place this past weekend at Henry Horton State Park.

The big featured product at my retreat this fall was Close To My Heart's new Flower Market Cricut Collection.  As everyone arrived they received a name tag -

and a retreat layout kit that featured cuts from the new Flower Market cartridge -

After the retreat, the attendees could add their name tag to the layout.   The flowers, leaves and acorns were all stamped with the background stamps that are included in the Flower Market Cricut Collection.  The paper is from Swan Lake.

Each attendee also received a stamped goodie bag containing a petite perk stamp, a mini pigment pad, some June Bug Stickees and special Close To My Heart Chap stick (because all that laughing and talking into the wee morning hours can make your lips chapped!)

During the retreat, the ladies had an option to attend a few classes to learn new techniques. 

Learning the Smooshing Watercolor Technique

Learning how to make a FUN FOLD Card
Saturday night we had many still going strong as it was getting late!

It was a wonderful weekend with a bunch of the best ladies I've every met!  Thank you all for making it a great time for all!

Now I'll be gearing up for the WINTER retreat which takes place in February!

Until then.... Keep on Scrappin!

Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to our Holiday Expressions New Product Blog Hop! We are showcasing many of the new products in our Holiday Expressions that was just released this month! If you have come here from Alyson Mayo's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way, you'll find the complete list of participating consultant's HERE.

I created this simple card using three NEW products.  First, I used the Snowflakes Embossing Folder to emboss onto the Crystal Blue Cardstock.    Next I cut snowflakes using the Thin Cuts-Snowflakes with White Glitter Paper.  My last new product I used is from the stamp set "Perfect Presents".  I stamped the "let it snow" image with Crystal Blue Ink on a tag that I cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.   I tied off the tag with White Gold Twine.

This card will be one of my 'desserts' offered at my Annual Christmas Card workshop.  (Details for that workshop are on my Upcoming Events Page)

Boo! and Beware with Jeepers Creepers!

Recently I created the three layouts in the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way kit.  The cutting guide also includes cutting directions for three sets of cards of 3 different designs.  Since I don't really send out Halloween Cards I decided to create one of each of the designs. Instead of using the recommended stamp set, I used my leftover compliments that were included in the WYW kit. I just love the little googly eyes from the the Jeepers Creepers Assortments!  The Compliments and Assortments are both included in the Jeepers Creepers Workshop Your Way Kit.

I thought they turned out quite cute!
