Halloween Treat Box

dscn0530

Hello everyone!

It has been a very busy few weeks, between family commitments and not feeling well,  I apologize that I have not been able to devote as much time to my stamping business as usual. But the beauty of having my own business is that I can set my own hours and if I need to take a little time off I can.  That’s one of the reason I love being a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator!  As long as I meet my minimum requirements for the quarter I can take off as much time as I need to.

But I am back and have been busy in my stamp room this past week creating projects and videos for the upcoming holiday season, I can’t wait to share them with you!  I also spent the entire day with two fellow demonstrators on Saturday planning our upcoming classes showcasing all the great products in the 2016 Holiday Catalog and including some great gift ideas.

Today’s share is a cute little Halloween Treat Box utilizing the Gift Box Punch Board. This tool is amazing!  It can make several different sized boxes in both square and rectangle shapes and once you get the hang of it they are so easy to put together. Not only great for holidays treats and small gifts but perfect for wedding favors too!

Enjoy!

Calling All Stampers!!

As I always say nothing makes me happier than sharing my love of stamping with you. But I think I have found something has topped that, I absolutely love when you share your love of stamping with me!

Every month I am going to share my customers creations with you, so you can see what other stampers like you are doing!  No matter what level stamper you are I would LOVE to see what you are doing and I’m sure everyone would too! I encourage all of you to send me pictures of your creations so I can share them on my blog.  I know they will inspire others! I will post on the 15th of the month so please submit your samples to me by the 1oth. They can be cards, scrapbook pages, decor, gift wrap…whaterver you like.  Make sure you include the supplies used and please use Stampin’ Up! supplies only.    One person each month will be chosen randomly to receive a special gift from me!  So grab that camera and let me see what you have been up to!

This month’s beautiful creations come from Mary Ann Thouin and my daughter Sarah Mulligan (design completely by her, no help from me!).  Mary Ann used colors, stamps and DSP from the Blooms and Bliss Suite and Sarah made a masculine birthday card for her brother using the Number of Years set, Dapper Denim and Tangerine Tango.  Enjoy!
