Cutest Halloween Class To Go

Who says Halloween can't be as cute as spooky? Meet the Cutest Halloween Stamp Set and create the cutest treat packaging for the spookiest time of the year! Give yourself and others have a fa-boo-lous Halloween!  In this class you will find a mini trick or treat bag, a stand up treat box, a tall milk carton box, a tombstone treat box, a mini Rice Krispie holder and a Kit Kat Wrap.   

 Inks used include Memento Black, Pale Papaya, Highland Heather, Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie. You will need a tag topper punch  and a regular hole punch for one project. Most of these projects feature a variety of dies, but if you are getting the class kit, those will already be cut out for you. I am offering the option to add the adorable dies to your kit if you want them. You'll save shipping and tax! I'm also offering the same option with a Basic Balck Stampin' Write Marker and an extrs pack of Tombstone Boxes. 

Adhesives used include Stampin’ Seal, Tear & Tape, Tombow Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. You can add adhesive to your kit when you register if you need some!

   The class kits will include six project kits and the full color step by step tutorial PDF. Each class kit will arrive at your front door sorted and organized by project. I will do all the scoring, punching and cutting for you (other than what needs to be done with your new punch.)

   This class to go has three options:

Option #1- $59


The Punch has gone on backorder until Nov. 1st so I've taken it off the registration option. If it comes back in sooner, I'll turn it back on. If you've already ordered option 1, I believe I ordered yours before they went on Back order. 

The stamp set is still available. You can still make the projects without the punch if you are willing to fussy cut (use your scissors.) If you want to register with just the stamp set, I’ve updated registration so you can add on the stamps to the option #2 kit.

This is the full Class To Go Kit. Included are: 

  •  Cutest Halloween Bundle ($31.50) 
  • 1 pack Cute Hallpween DSP (Free- an $11.50 savings!)
  • 1 pack of Decorative Matte Dots
  • 1 bolt of Black and White Gingham Ribbon 
  • Six Make and Take packets 
  • Full step by step PDF
  • Free Sale A Bration item! 

*Some items may go on back order or unorderable which could cause delay in shipping or slight substitutions (very rare, but possible.)  

Email me for registration link

 Option #2- $39

This is the option for those who already own the Cutest Halloween Bundle. You will need them to complete your projects so only choose this option if you already own the bundle.  

  • 1 pack Cute Hallpween DSP 
  • 1 pack of Decorative Matte Dots
  • 1 bolt of Black and White Gingham Ribbon 
  • Six Make and Take packets 
  • Full step by step PDF

Option #1 and #2 ship in a Priority Mail Padded Envelope for $8. This includes tracking and insurance.  

Email me for registration link

  Option #3- $15

PDF only- want to cut your own cardstock and already own the products? This is the option for you. If you purchase the PDF Only option, you will be immediately emailed the links. If you do not receive them within five minutes of purchase, please email me!

 Click here to purchase just the PDF Tutorial 

 Option #3- $20

 Sweet Stampede Members (my first level downline) can purchase this option for the make and take kits and PDF. This is a perk for belonging to my team!  You can see all the Sweet Stampede benefits here. 

   All class kits and included product will be ordered and prepared together after the deadline.This is a preorder only and per SU policy, I do not have product on hand ready to ship. Because of this, it takes about 1 week after the deadline for me to order, cut, prepare and ship all the class kits.  Class Kits can only be mailed within the United States. If you live out of the US, you can still purchase the PDF. 

 There is no actual online class, this is just a kit that comes to your mailbox and is available to do at your convenience. The registration website will send you an email reminder around the time it is expected to arrive, but there is nothing to look for online other than the email with the PDF. 

Email me for registration link

 Registration will close on September 21st.

Expected shipping date of all kits is on or near September 28th.

August Club Create- Trimmings & Tidings- plus Harvest Meadow (September)

Hello everyone! I'd like to share this month's Club Create kits and tell you about next month's kits! Each month, my Club Create members receive a kit in the mail with 5 projects and about $20 in brand new product.

August's Club Create was centered around the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle from the annual catalog. The kit included 1/4 a pack of DSP, 1 pack of Metallic Specialty paper, a pack ofRed Rhinestones, a bold of Real Red Ruffled Ribbon as well as five projects and tutorials. Each month, the PDFs also include a video showing how to make the projects. If you are interested in that PDF, you can find it here in my PDF store here.

Every month, I set aside a whole week for Club Create prep. It's a huge undertaking! I cut each individual project and then start the sorting.

I have a great industrial paper cutter which makes cutting all the pieces and card bases pretty easy. The die cuts do take quite a bit of time however. This month, my daughter once again helped me cut some of them. Once everything is cut, I start the sorting. I sort one project at a time and bag them individually either in a cello bag or envelope. 

This month while I was in the middle of sorting, I needed to go sit with my Dad for a while. So, I packed up my piles and headed to my parents house. My mom has this huge island in her kitchen which was actually perfect for sorting! Maybe I need to go there each month to do this! It's so much bigger than what I have in my office! 

Side note- this is my mom's dog, Millie. She's a Welsh Corgi. And she's so CRAZY! While I sorted, she laid in the middle of the floor like this- sound asleep!! She'll roll over for you to pet her belly, but this is also her preferred method of sleeping! She can lay like this literally for hours!! No shame!!! 
Every month, my Club Create members not only get five projects, but around $20 in new consumable product. June's kit included 1/2 pack of the Plentiful Plants DSP, a pack Paper Lattice, and five bolt of  twine! Some of the product is used on their projects, but they have lots left over to use on other projects. 

Each kit also includes a little handmade thank you tag as a thank you from me. It always features the bundle we're using in the kit. 

Once I have everything sorted and organized, it's time to pick the kits. This takes me several hours. I go down a pick line, kind of like in the SU warehouse! It's so satisfying to me to see all the projects ready to go! 

Once the kits are all safely packed in cello bags, it's time to print the labels and put them in their envelopes. 

This is what the kits look like when they arrive. 

I ship all the kits in USPS Priotiryt Flat Rate Padded envelope. This seems to be the safest and fastest  way to get them to their new homes. Plus, they have tracking and insurance.  

And once they are all ready for pick up, I can breath a sigh of relief and start designing for next month's Club Create! It really is the most fun thing I do every month. Lots of work, but such s labor of love that I am very proud of. 

September's Club Create will feature the Harvest Meadow Bundle. It will include five make and takes, $20 in consumable product and a step by step PDF and 30 minute video.) If you are interested in joining Club Create, read the full details below and then click one of the buttons at the bottom to subscribe.
The deadline for each month's kit is always on the 7th. 
If you'd just like the PDF (and video,) you can find it here in my PDF store.  

If you'd like to see the last 12 month's of Club Create kits, click here and scroll down. 

What is Club Create? 
Do you love craft kits? Do you love getting surprises in the mail? My new program called Club Create is all that and more!!

For $39 a month, you will receive a fun craft kit, designed and constructed by me,  that includes at $20+ in consumable product, several make and takes, a video tutorial and a PDF. 

Each month, I will choose one stamp set or bundle and design fun projects for you to create. If you don’t already have the stamp set, you can add it on to your kit or use what you already have. By adding on to your kit, you will save on tax and shipping! 

As a thank you for your membership, after 6 consecutive months, you will receive a $25 in product bonus to spend on whatever you choose! 

Each month the Club Create fee will automatically be charged to your account, so you won’t have to worry about missing any deadlines. You can cancel any time. All subscription fees will be billed though Pay Pal. 

In order to receive that month’s Club Create Kit, you have to be subscribed by the 7th of the month. Club Create kits will ship on or before the 20th of each month. 

I will email you several weeks before with the name of the stamp set we will be using as well as any specific inks or other product you might need. Shipping is Free!

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Hey everybody! I'm back from dropping off my oldest at college. She's going to Baylor University, my alma mater  Whew! I know, I was prepared for the emotional aspect of all this. Everyone warns you. But man, it's SO HARD! I think once we actually said goodbye, I was all cried out, but it was still so hard! Her sisters had a very hard time saying goodbye too. But, we did it. And she's happy and in the right place! 

We spent all of yesterday setting up her room. Isn't it cute!? She really bought everything herself. She was on top of it! I worried as we got closer that she didn't have everything, but I was very wrong.

I left a little bracelet on her bed when we left. It's from Wanderer and it had the coordinates of our house on it. I forgot to take a picture of it! Ugh! But, I did take a picture of this little tag I made for her. The quite was actually a little tear of tag that came from the school in some advertisements for goodie boxes. Of course I had to make it super cute! I used the Bloom Where You Are Planted Suite to match her room, She loves little plants and the whole earthy theme. 

I'll be back tomorrow at 2:00 pm CST for Facebook Friday! I'll be featuring the Joyful Live stamp set- it's fo cute!! Make sure to set a reminder! See you then!
