Happy Halloween everyone!So, last Friday through Sunday I went to a Stampin Up! getaway weekend with my mom, hosted by the lovely Jill Hilliard.
I was happy to have the weekend to craft and got a LOT done. I finished up my 2013 Project Life album, got up to date on my 2014 Project Life album, created a banner for our New Years Party, and made a BOATLOAD of Christmas cards- which I totally need, since at the start of this year, I had about 2 Christmas cards made. haha
Below are some of the projects I created over the weekend:
|This is such a cute Stampin Up! set. I love the little drinks.|
|Once I figured out how to use the watercolor pen, this became such an adorable card (ended up making a handful like this)|
|The woman next to me gave me a bunch of her green tree edge leftovers, and I made them into these cards. Yay for reusing others rejects. haha|
|Started on the Villains side of our "Heroes and Villians New Years Party" banner. ;) Yay for leftover Halloween stuff.|
|The full banner, just not tied together.|
|Made the whole set of cards from this simple Stampin Up! kit.|
|Also finished up these Paper Pumpkin treat bags. I'm gonna give some to peeps that are hosting Halloween parties we are going to, and a few for our neighbors.|
|I just gotta get some more candy to fill them up though.|
|Finished my 2013 project life album. Yay!|
Here are some of the make-'n'-takes, original designs by Jill, but slightly tweaked by me (cards and scrapbook pages):
Here are the projects I completed in the 2 classes- a gift card class and treat box class:
The gift cards:
|The red part in the back comes out as well.|
|This is my favorite of the gift card holders- so classy.|
|Cutsy snowman gift card holder.|
|Simple, but classy Santa gift card holder.|
The treat boxes:
|So simple, so cute. I might make more of these...|
|Adorable purse/fries box treat container.|
|Santa treat container|
|Cute birdie treat box.|
|Double box container- Would be perfect for holding little bottles of Bath and Body Works, etc.|
Here are the lovely welcome/pillow gifts/thank you dailies that Jill made for all of us. All are so cute!
I had a great time. Later I'll show you a set of cards I made using a small amount of products, but different designs, based off of one of the make-'n'-takes I did (I'll show you those in the bunch too).
Overall, it was a great time. I can't wait to go to another crafty getaway!
|The essentials for crafting over that weekend. lol|
Stay tuned for my post on quick and easy Christmas cards- so cute and so simple to crank out a bunch of cards in a jiffy!
Enjoy your Halloween all. It will be Christmas before you know it, lol. Have a great day!
