Last Friday I was scheduled to have a Wrap Up the Holidays class but mother nature didn’t like that idea. Instead we had snow! Which is not normal for us – I live in Georgia – we average maybe 1-2″ of snow in a whole year and that’s usually in Jan/Feb time frame – occasionally in March. Rarely in December. But this weekend we got about 8″ of snow at my house! So since my class was cancelled I decided to be brave and do a FB Live on my Stamping Together At Monika’s Place Facebook page instead. It was my first real one on my page where I showed a project. You can visit my page to watch it if you haven’t already.
Here is the project that I made.
It’s a set of tags featuring the Card Front Builder Thinlits dies and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. I also made a little box to hold the tags.
You can get written instructions here – Tree Tags and Box

I’ve been having fun playing with the new Stampin’ Blends. I wanted to show you one of the cards I made.
Isn’t she so cute?
I used the new Stampin’ Blends with the This Little Piggy set. She is so happy on my card. Did you know you can also color the pearls? I have a little tiny pearl in the center of the flower and it’s colored with the Pool Party Blends to match the flower.
Have a happy day! Thanks for stopping by.
Order the new Stampin’ Blends today. Don’t forget about my giveaway for orders in my store through Nov. 15th – read more about it here.
I love to use the Notecards & Envelopes for quick little cards. The Very Vanilla ones are nice for a fall feel.
This one uses the Flourishing Phrases stamps set, a little bit of the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper. And to dress it up just a bit a die cut piece from the Flourish Thinlits. Stamp the envelope to match.
Quick and easy to make a stack – the notecards come in a pack of 20 with envelopes.
Thanks – it’s short and sweet today.
Every month I have a Card Maker’s Class at my stamping studio. It’s the perfect class for every level of stamper. You get to make the cards that you need and work at your own pace. Card choices vary each month. I’m there to help you with anything you need. Upcoming dates for this class are:
- Friday, October 27 – 10 am and 7 pm
- Friday, November 17 – 10 am and 7 pm
- Friday, December 15 – 10 am and 7 pm
Here is a look at the card choices from the September class last week.
Every card is in a shoe box with all the supplies inside. You select a box take it back to your seat, make one or more cards and then clean everything and return the supplies to the box and the box to the table.
My Paper Pumpkin subscribers get to make a bonus card – it’s an alternate idea using the stamps from the monthly kit. This month my class was held before my kit arrived (actually my kit arrived the day of class) so I had a second idea for the August kit.
If you live local I hope you can join me!

Remember a few days ago I posted about the Spooky Cat Bundle and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper – you can read it HERE. I was telling you about the Designer Series paper and how some of the designs were special. For this card I used the Pumpkin print paper which coordinates with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies.
Those little pumpkins are from the Spooky Nights Designer Series paper – cut perfectly with the Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies. I also used two other strips of paper from the pack. The stamps are from the Spooky Cat stamp set – the “Happy Halloween” and also the little striped image at the top. Plus I added Black Rhinestone Jewels.
It’s a very quick and easy card.
Are you ready for fall? It sure does feel like it’s coming. What’s left of Hurricane Irma just passed through and here where I live it was a very cool and very rainy windy day. I had to pull out some fall clothes because I was cold. So I know it’s coming. We didn’t have any issues from the storm here at my house. We are thankful for that. And thankful that our family is all safe as well.
For today I have a fun fall card to share with you. It uses the Merry Cafe stamp set from the Holiday catalog. And while I’m not a coffee drinker I do really love this stamp set – it’s for so much more than coffee and coordinates with the Coffee Cafe bundle in the annual catalog.
I paired it with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.
Did you notice that it’s actually the same basic layout as the Spooky Cat card I just shared. This is an easy layout to use for a variety of cards. And since it uses a 2″ x 4″ strip of the Designer Series paper it makes it easy to do a stack of cards. The little squares in this print remind me of some paper we had years ago that I really loved.
