Happy Halloween!

Last year we had such a great new set for this month with dies and amazing stamps and papers that I had a hard time with October this year. So I went really simple.

The base cardstock for all the pages is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Whisper White
All the calendars were created by me in Publisher and are cut at 3 1/4 x 4 1/2

The stamp set used is Spooky Cat
Next layer is 5 1/4 x 7 7/8 Crushed Curry
Cut Basic Black at 5 x 3 7/8 (top) and 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 (bottom)
Cut Whisper White @ 3 3/4 x 4 7/8. Use a piece of scrap cardstock (any color it doesn't matter) punch with a 2 1/2" circle punch, then using a sponge and Crushed Curry sponge inside the circle to create the moon.
Punch the Cat from a piece of Basic Black
Cut 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 piece of DSP (I used last years Halloween paper), However, we have some great black and white prints that would work as well.
Put a piece of 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron Ribbon across the top of the DSP
Stamp the greeting in Basic Black Archival ink on Whisper White 
Finish off with the Black Rhinestones.

All the products that are currently available are listed below.

If you read my post on the 2018 Calendar I said I was going to do it differently this year. Instead of creating and posting the calendar all at the end of December. I will be creating it as we go through the year.

The January page uses the the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Party Pandas.

What you need to do to participate:
  • Place a $50 order (before shipping and tax) by January 31.  Be sure to order the Party Panda as your free Sale-A-Bration product.
  • Place your order directly through MY STORE Do not select NO CONTACT when placing your order . If you do I will not be able to send you the calendar because, I won't get any information.
  • Each month (February - December) you purchase $25 in product ( before shipping and tax) I will send you the calendar page
What I will do:
  •  I will send you the Calendar Base which includes the cover, stand and anchor pages, once I receive an email from Stampin' Up! that you placed an order
  •  I will send you  the January 2019 Calendar Page kit including any shapes, ribbons and the pre-printed calendar ready to be stamped and assembled.
You can follow along and order each month and by the end of the year you will have added some fun new things to your stamping collection and your calendar will be completed. I will show you the supplies I used to create this page.

This card is cased from the new 2018 Occasions Catalog. I love this set and can't wait to play with it some more. Just a few tips! #1 On page 5 of the 2018 Occasion catalog is a new embossing folder that will emboss your cardstock to give it the look of siding. If you don't have that embossing folder yet, you could score every 1/2" on your Simply Scoring Tool. #2 Purchase some #6 washers from the local hardware store you will need 8 for each card. #3 Be sure to attach the greeting before you put the door on. #4 Instead of using dimensionals on the back of the siding I used Foam Adhesive Strips. They raised it a little higher and they made it much easier than dimensionals.

Stamp Set is called Barn Door!
Cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pool Party
Cut 4 x 5 1/4 Pool Party and emboss with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (or score with the Simply Scoring Tool). Then cut with the die.
Cut 2 1/2 x 4 Crumb Cake. Stamp the door on it with Early Espresso. Cut out with the die after stamping
Cut 2 x 2 Garden Green. Stamp the wreath in Garden Green. Cut this out with the wreath die
Scrap of Whisper White and stamp the flowers 2 times. Once in Crushed Curry and once in Calypso Coral. Cut these out with the 3 flower die and the Calypso Coral with the individual flower die.
Die cut the rail, door handle and hardware in Basic Black cardstock
Cut 2 1/2 x 4 Whisper White. Stamp the greetings in Early Espresso.

Attach 2 of the washers together using a Mini Dimensional. You will need 4 of these sets. Put them into the slits you made with the die. Position them and attach to the door using glue dots. 

This set will be available  January 3 - May 31

Happy Stamping!!
