Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Gum

Hello everybody! 
I'm sharing with you a fun little treat I made for recent craft shows.
I stumbled upon some new gum called Trident Laters Pumpkin Spice! Now, c'mon, aren't these just screaming to be a gift with some cute Stampin' Up fall paper and stamps?? Yes! 


I used the Motley Monsters DSP and Fall Fest stamp set for the cover. 
The sentiment is from Bitty Banners. 


Right next to that gum was Trident Layers Candy Cane! I chewed a lot of this last year, I loved it! So, of course it needs to be dressed up too, right?

To create the "peppermint", I used the Amazing Birthday stamp set and the sentiment is from Really Good Greetings.

Many Merry Stars Kit

Hey everybody! Have you heard? Stampin' Up has a new Supplement Catalog out today! It's something they've never done before, so I am excited to see some new things here in the middle of October!
Click on the image above and you can see the whole thing!

I also made you a little video to show you two awesome things from the supplement!!



As I mentioned in the video, this Many Merry Stars Kit is spectacular! I love all my little boxes! Once I got them all made, I decided I wanted to turn them into a wreath! 

To do this, start with a foam wreath form the craft store. Wrap it with strips of burlap and secure them with Hot Glue. 

Position your larger stars first. Don't glue them yet, you want to make sure they are going to work in the position you have them. 


Fill in with the next size down. Last, Add in the smallest stars. Now, once you have it how you want it, remove a couple at a time and hot glue those babies in place!

Love, love, LOVE it!! Here is my Instagram pic I took of the final piece. 



These items are only AS SUPPLIES LAST!! 
Yes, that means if you really want it, do NOT wait!

Also, SU has some great videos about these boxes. Check them out here and here.

Halloween Roundup

Hi everybody! Quick weekend post... I worked a craft fair all day yesterday and am still exhausted! Whew! I am going to post the rest of what I made for all my October Craft Faiirs! Enjoy!

I'm not sure I shared these here... I know I did on Instagram, but not here. Anyway, the tag was created with the PLxSU Digital download in MDS. Inside is candy and favors for kids.
