Goblins & Ghouls, anyone?

So, I was feeling the Halloween spirit and decided to make this cute little album.  This album was designed by Mary-Jane Roussell for Ustamp with Dawn  & Friends Fall 09 and it was SO easy!  I did alter the book slightly, but it only took 1 sheet of 12x12 cardstock for the album, 1/2 sheet of a contrasting color for accents and a few scraps of patterned/designer paper to finish it off.  I think it turned out adorable.!

Supplies:  Lovely lilac, only orange and basic black ink classic ink and paper
Batty for You, Eat, Drink & Be Scary, Schoolbook Serif Alphabet and Terrific Tags stamp sets
Papersnips, SNAIL adhesive, papercutter
Large and small tag, 1 3/8 and 1 1/4 square, round tab and scallop border punches

I also added a few mini brads - some from Stampin' Up! and a few others.

So you don't stamp? Part 2

So, you still don't know if Stampin' Up! products are for you?  Well, check this out:  Remember the cards and box I made with 1/2 of a Pretty Petals Simply Scrappin kit?  This is what I made with the other half!  This mini flap album was designed by Jenny Moors of Ustamp Fall 09 and was easy to make.  I think it turned out really cute too!  And again, no stamping was done on this project....all I needed was my Simply Scrappin kit (1/2 package used - it contains cardstock, designer paper, and stickers), SNAIL adhesive, Sticky Strip, paper cutter, paper snips and ribbon.  I used a non-Stampin' Up! ribbon here, but one of their grosgrain ribbons would work just as well.  I still have LOTS of leftover stickers and paper, enough to make some more cards or scrap some photos.  If you are interested in ordering these, or other Stampin' Up products, please email me!!  Don't forget about the specials they have currently too - see the posts below for the specials AND for the project I made with the other half of the kit.

So you say you don't stamp!?! :)

That's ok!! Stampin Up supplies may still be perfect for you!! Here's a picture of a card box and cards I made following a sample made by Jenny Moors of UStamp Fall 09. I adapted her directions slightly to show how you can still create beautiful cards, even without stamping! These were made with HALF of a Pretty Petals Simply Scrappin kit (I have tons left over - I can make another set, scrapbook OR try something else) and required no stamping at all. Only cutting, gluing and being creative!! This clever box will hold my 9 cards and envelopes and would make an adorable gift for someone, don't you think?
