Halloween BOO Wall Hanging-Kit in the Mail

Boohanger1

Isn't this the cutest thing!!  I got the idea from Ruth's Christmas Wall Hanging that she shared with me at Founder's Circle.  I thought it would be super cute for Halloween as well.  I am offering this as a kit in the mail so you can make one too. 

You will receive all the materials to make this chipboard Halloween wall hanging including the Scalloped chipboard pieces, Scalloped card stock pieces, Designer Series Papers (will vary by kit), die cut letters, the ribbons, Orchard Ribbon Originals Ric Rac, safety pin and embellishments.  You will receive either a Corduroy Pumpkin Pie button or brad or a Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware Brad for the embellishment on the "B" section.  The instructions will be emailed to you and will include a "how to" on making this super quick bow.

I will take orders for the kits through September 29th and am planning to mail the kits no later than October 6th.

I used the Extreme Elements stamp set on the card stock panels under the letters and am offering it as an option with the purchase of the kit.

The kit by itself is $16.95 and if you would like to add the stamp set, the price will be $44.95.  All prices include the shipping directly to you.

Demonstrators will be able to purchase the project file from me for $6.95 and the file will be ready to email to you on Wednesday.  I will personalize it with your contact info so all you will need to do is prepare the supplies and hand the sheet to your customers for an instant class.  You will need to include your name, phone number, email address and website address with your payment.

Founder's Circle Day 1

It was a good day, all my flights were on time and I arrived at the hotel about noon.  They were waiting for us with our room keys and the guys took our bags up.  We went to the Gathering Place to get our name tags and pick up our get to know you game.  It was fun trying to get the different colored butterflies frofm everyone.  When we were done, we took them back to the Gathering Place and got this stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Mini!!  (Per SU rules, I needed to blur out the stamp set as it won't be available until January.)

Gameandsetblur

Then I went up to my room to unpack and it wasn't hard finding my room as my name was on the door again!!  I love this eDcor Element and I will definitely be bringing it home.  There are Decor Elements all over the hotel.  I will get some shots today and share them later.

Dinner last night was awesome!!  We sat with our new friends from Hawaii!!  Hi Cathy, Jane, Cindy and Naoko.  We also sat with a few other new friends Judy and Kim.  We had a delicious turkey dinner and the best part was that I didn't have to make it!!  Here is the shot of our decadent dessert.  It was so yummy and rich but I could not eat it all. :-)

Dasher - I love this little guy!!!

I am in St. George Utah at the Founder's Circle retreat and already having a blast!!!!  It is so good to see my stampin' buddies.  I have to say, I am more than a little sad that my friend Kristina from Canada was unable to come this year and I miss her already (insert me crying my baby eyes out)!!  OK enough of my pity party, you didn't come here to hear my blubbering.

I just love this under $10 stamp on page 208 called Dasher.  He is just too cute. :-)  These are a few more swaps that Kay received at convention.....enjoy!!!

These are so fun and super cute too!!  I did a video on making one so you can see how easy, peasy it is. :-)

Check out my other videos HERE

Here is a close up of the one with the ornament.  I stamped the ornament from Delightful Decorations in Versamark and covered it with Heat & Stick Powder, heat set it and then added the Aqua Fine Supernova Glitter and heat set it again. I then punched it out with the NEW Ornament punch in the Holiday Mini.  SUPER SPARKLY!!!!

Wandering Words - CF Swap

The freaks should have received their swaps by now so I can show you mine.  I used a NEW set from the Holiday Mini called Wandering Words

Click here to place your Stampin' Up! order.

I took my colors from the Autumn Traditions Designer Series Paper. I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp using Elegant Eggplant, Ruby Red, More Mustard, Always Artichoke and Soft Suede.  I ran my Elegant Eggplant layer through the Big Shot using the Argyle plate for the background.  The Photo Corner Punch has a bit of More Mustard sponged on it and the ribbon is the reverse of the Soft Suede Polka Dot Grosgrain.
