Fall Festival

     Happy Halloween everyone I have some cards that I have made with the new Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set and I wanted to show them to you before Halloween was here and gone.  I have absolutely fallen in love with this set and punch and cant wait to do something with the Christmas set.  As always the DSP that I used and some of the supporting stamp sets may be retired I use what I have and hope that these are inspirations for you.  I used layouts with 2 of these cards that I have used before and with each card I will link to the example in previous posts.  I hope you enjoy them.

Love You Lots

     Hello everyone, it has been a little while since my last post.  The new catalogue has come out with some cute things in it.  The hostess sets are some of the cutest.  The precious little animals in the Love You Lots set are my favorite.  So today I have made cards with all 4 of them.  You will notice that some of the colors and all for the DSP that I used are retired, that is because I have set some rules for myself, until I use up a lot of my DSP that I currently own I cannot get any new.  So I certainly plan on using up as much as possible in the next few post.  I know that a lot of demonstrators only use the current materials,  but there are a lot of us out there that hang on to the retired stuff until we run out.  I always say that the cards I make are only a jumping off point for you, you can always substitute colors, DSP, stamp sets,  use these as inspirations.  So without further babbling.
