Fall Frenzy Retreat Goodies

This past weekend my friend, Zahra from Canada, and I hosted our Fall Frenzy Virtual Retreat.

What a special time we had with the ladies – stamping together, playing Bingo, laughing, and even though we were spread all across the United States and Canada, it really felt like we could’ve been in a room together!!

Each participant received a bag of Stampin’ Up! goodies with their six Make & Takes. (Not included in the picture, everyone also received a pack of the Blackberry Beauty Designer Series Paper.)

The retreat also included 4 pillow gifts that were packaged in brown paper bags so as not to ruin the surprise.

Throughout the weekend we opened the pillow gifts together. It was fun to see their smiles.

They received a notebook and coordinating pen.

A beautiful box with chocolate inside.

A package of the Gold & Rose Gold Specialty Paper.

And a fun box that holds an antibacterial soap.

My heart is so full and a big smile comes to my face whenever I think about the weekend.

Believe it or not, but we’re already working on our next event….

Stamp Camp January 2022. You can go ahead and sign up for this already and find all the details for it on the form.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Scrapbook Layout

All this week I’ve been sharing projects using the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

I’ve shared two cards, gift giving, Christmas tags, and today a scrapbook layout.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Scrapbook Layout

Scrapbooking is my first love. It’s the very first kind of paper crafting I did.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Scrapbook Layout

I love the memory keeping of scrapbooking and how you can really specialize it to the occasion and (in my case) kids.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Scrapbook Layout

I took components from the other four projects this week and brought them into the scrapbook layout – the cutout stocking, a tag, Pool Party ribbon, the poinsettia, and, of course, the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Christmas Tags

All this week I’m making projects using the Sweet Stockings Designer Series Paper.

Because they all use the same DSP, they look similar, and yet are completely unique. This week I’m making two cards, a treat/gift holder, Christmas tags (today), and a scrapbook layout.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Stockings Gift Tags

I decided to make tags using the DSP for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop color challenge.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop October 21 Color Challenge- Pick At Least 3 Cherry Cobbler Bumblebee OldOlive Evening Evergreen Pool Party'

I made three tags. The first:

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Hugs Card

New product is always exciting and the Eden’s Garden doesn’t disappoint!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Card

This is a collection that includes the Eden’s Gardens Bundle (stamps/dies), Ever Eden Designer Series Paper, Ever Eden Cotton Paper, and Garden Gems. The Bundle will carry over into the 2022 Jan-June Mini Catalog. The other 3 items are available ***while supplies last***.

It will be available beginning Nov 2nd!

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Card

For me the star of the collection is the Designer Series Paper. It’s GORGEOUS!!!! So I wanted to really highlight it today.

My card starts off with Soft Succulent cardstock. I then matted a pattern from the Ever Eden DSP on Gold Foil and adhered it to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Card

I then used the Eden Dies and cut out a large wreath from Evening Evergreen cardstock. I adhered it to the card and trimmed off the excess.

Stampin’ Up! Eden’s Garden Card

I stamped the sentiment from the Eden’s Garden Stamp Set in Evening Evergreen ink and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels Dies.

Stampin' Up! Eden's Garden Card

I added a Gold bow next to it.

Thanks for checking out my project today! Be sure to mark your calendar for Nov 2nd!!!!!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple Thanks & Hello Card

Today’s card is unique in that it doesn’t have any stamping on it.

In fact, it’s a super quick, simple, and easy card to make.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks & Hello Card

The sketch for this week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop was a simple one, so I decided to follow suit.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop Dctober 14 Sketch Challenge'

My card starts off with Calyspo Coral cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks & Hello Card

I adhered a pattern from the Harvest Meadows Designer Series Paper to the card front.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks & Hello Card

I took a panel of Calypso Coral cardstock which I embossed using the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folder.

Stampin’ Up! Thanks & Hello Card

I matted this on a panel of Basic White cardstock and then wrapped around some Diamond Weave Ribbon in a knot.

Stampin' Up! Hello & Thanks Card

See, a ridiculously quick and simple card – super easy to CASE (copy and selectively edit)!
