I always get asked the question "Where do you get all of your ideas?"
Well, I WISH I could take credit for all of the things I make, however, the truth is, Stampin' Up! offers a FABULOUS website just for Demonstrators. We can inspire & create (and copy!!) with fellow Demonstrators from all over the world! These Demonstrators are truly unbelieveable when it comes to some of the projects they create. I am so grateful to them all! I found this idea from a fellow Demonstrator, Kimberly Van Diepen. She is one amazing stamper! She made these treat cones for Halloween, however, I needed something for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Here is what I created:
I thought they would be perfect for each place setting at the table, don't you think? I used the color theme of Soft Suede, Very Vanilla & Crumb Cake. I LOVE this color combo for Fall! I chose the Elegant Soiree DSP (117163 - $9.95) and the coordinating Elegant Lines embossing folder (119277 - $7.95) as the base of the cone. The little leaf is from the French Foliage (w120845 - $19.95 - c121166 $14.95) stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. Thanks for looking!

Todays card is a simple (& economical!) Halloween card using leftover Designer Series Paper (DSP). I am always looking for ways to use up my scraps!
I used one of my all-time favorite Halloween stamp sets - Batty for You (116576 $23.95) along with the scraps from the Wicked Fun DSP (117400-0$11.95). The little sentiment is from the stamp set Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370 - $36.95). This is one of 3 cards we will be making this week during my 3/$5 classes.

It is Friday - WOO HOO!! That means it is time for another Fast & Fabulous Friday project! Take a look at this:
I found this cute little 4"x4" shadow box (yes, at my dollar store!) and thought it would be perfect for this little project. Here are the directions to complete this project in under 5 minutes:
1. Rub one of the Decor Elements Halloween Faces - SO quick & easy - to the front of the glass.
2. Add Halloween Designer Series Paper (DSP) of your choice to the inside of the back panel.
3. Fill with Halloween candy corn.
4. Add ribbon & tie in a bow on the top.
It is that easy! Best part is, you can make 3 of them for under $10! Great for decorations or to give as a gift!

Here is one of four cards we will be making at my Holiday Card Class #3 next week:
I fell in love with this Greeting Card Kids stamp set (w119887 $20.95 - c120633 $15.95) the first time I saw it. I adore the vintage-look of these images & the new Silver Tinsel Trim (120994 $7.95) gives the card sparkle!
