To Every Season Thankful Card

Are you ready for Fall?  I have loved our weather over this past weekend.  The temperatures finally got cooler and we could enjoy eating breakfast outside and boating.  We actually started to see some colors on trees as we drove home one day.  When I saw the To Every Season bundle in our new Holiday catalog, I went right to it and made this card.

Boo to You Coffin Box

Here is a Sneak Peek from our new Holiday Catalog that comes out Sept. 4th. I couldn’t wait any longer to share some of the cute products with you. Notice the coffin boxes are pre-cut and scored. All you do is add your glue and assemble. What a cute treat box.The Boo to You stamps have the cutest creatures. Not too scary and are sure to make you smile. Notice the Googly Eyes are in color? They go great with this set. I also used our new Silver metallic ink to sponge the sides of the coffin lid. It gives it a more warn look. What a fun way to dress up your candy treats! Stay tuned for my 5 Weeks of Halloween videos. Hope you will join me for some Spooky fun!

What is a Paper Share?

When you reserve a designer series paper share with me, I will order all of the new paper from the latest Stampin’ Up! catalog, cut it up, package it, label it, and reship it to you so that you have a sampling of all of the new papers listed in this post.  This is usually about 1/4th the cost of purchasing all of the new paper packs yourself. This way you can see, feel, touch and use the paper and reorder your favorites in my online store.
