Announcing Creative Collage

Your monthly creative opportunity in a box!
That's right... it's here!!  For each month's Creative Collage kit, you will get a box delivered to you with tons of supplies just waiting for you to create with! Each month’s kit will include a stamp set (clear or photopolymer) selected by the Creative Collage team, as well as Designer Series Paper, coordinating card stock, card bases and envelopes and a selection of accessories, ribbons, cords and twines! All you have to do is open it and provide your own creativity, adhesive and ink (and maybe a few basic tools)!
Your Creative Collage team will provide 3 blog hops - the 1st, 7th and 14th of each month.  Each blog hop will show you 3 great projects made with products in your kit.  The first two hops will be projects made with only the kit contents plus adhesives and ink. The next hop we will each show you a "step it up" or "out of the box" project - created with the kit but adding a few additional items, elements or techniques.  FULL DETAILS CAN BE FOUND - HERE!
Our first kit features -
the stamp set "Tee Hee Hee" from the SU Holiday catalog, plus all the other products shown below - what an amazing kit this will be to get you ready for all those little ghosts and goblins, not to mention the little witches in your life.
Full Contents - One piece of each of 12 Motley Monsters DSP designs 4x6" 
One of each - Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, and Sahara Sand and two of each Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock pieces 4.25x5.5"
One yard of each - Tangerine larger bakers twine and Black chevron ribbon 
1-1/2x6" strip - silver glimmer paper 
3 paper doilies 
One Tiny Treat box
Large Crushed Curry button and Medium Bermuda Bay button 
Two Mini Clothespins 
Five 1x8" long cello bags 
Banner and arrow wood pieces 
One each of regular card bases - crushed curry and basic black with white envelopes 
Two notecards white with envelopes 
Two 3x3" Sahara Sand and Bermuda Bay gift card bases with white envelopes
By email: PDF of six BONUS projects.
Here is my first project for the blog hop!  I love the elements in this months kit...if you love Halloween, this is a must have!!!  
Additional supplies: Markers-Sahara Sand, Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Basic Black.  Adhesive- SNAIL, Glue Dots and Dimentionals.  Tools- Paper Snips and Paper Trimmer.

Here is a side view of how I popped up the bottom of each broom.  I attached the top of each broom base with a glue dot and the bottom with a half of a 
dimentional.  The thin Orange string is from pulling apart the fibers in the Tangerine Tango Bakers twine!  

But don't stop now - our Creative Collage team has more samples of projects made from this kit to share with you.  And that's not all - stop back September 7th for even more great samples.

Shake it up...

I love all the stars in this years catalog.  It has been a while since they got rid of a bunch of stars, and it is nice to have them back!  
Here is a card we did this month at advanced cards and cocktails!  
 We used the star stencil with dubbers using Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, and Baked Brown Sugar.  The star is a cut out from our framelits that we used as a muted window for the shaker.  Then popped the cut out star inside with dimentionals!

Club Card

I am so Happy to finally have Kinda Eclectic stamp set in my hands!  I love this set and I had been waiting patiently to get it...since we received it with our convention registration, it didn't make sense to buy it ahead of time.  But I kept seeing super cute cards with it and was growing very impatient!  
So here is what I did with it!
 I love that this card is such a verity of styled stamps, but they all came from the same set!  
Thanks for stopping by!

Club 3-D

Have you seen the weak peaks out there of our new box punch board?  This produce tis great and has so many possibilities!
I couldn't wait to use it so we had to make a box for club last month...
 As much as pink is not my color, I really do love it with the combo of grey.  I used Blushing Bride, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  The stamp sets are Dotty Angle and Amazing Birthday.

Blooming Thank you!

Sorry for the lack in posting this past week!  Life(well work) has been crazy, and I have hardly kept my head above water!!!  
So I have added a new fun class to my list.  It is a mix and match sort of thing.  I did a test run last month, and it went well.  I am going to tweak it  bit for this coming month and get the glitches out:)

It is called Open Stamp.  It is more or less a card class, scrapbooking class and open crop in one.  I will have a scrapbooking class table, where I teach the basics of a layout, a card class table where I teach the basics of the cards and a open crop table where you bring your own thing and work on your own projects.  You can do one class, do both classes or just crop!

 SO here is one of the cards we did at the last Open Stamp.  I love the simplicity of this card.  I saw one on Pinterest that inspired me, but do you think I can find it to give it credit now?  Nope!  Sorry to the artist!  

Thanks for stopping by!
