I'm sorry.

I am back, and I have to apologize to anyone who has been expecting my Stamp-of-the Week posts. It just didn't happen. I'm afraid that as long as I'm a cake decorator, it probably won't either. As much as I'd like to spend more time posting, I just haven't figured out how to make it work. I have been busy crafting, and teaching craft classes, just haven't had time to sit down here and post about them. Anyway. with all that being said, I am sorry and I will do my best to post regularly, but I just feel it's better if I don't commit to anything specific so I don't disappoint anyone.

For those of you in a fall kind of mood, here's a fun project we made at my Tips, Tools and Techniques class this week. We used the new Gift Box Punch Board to make letter "blocks" for fall. I have to be totally honest here that I was not too thrilled with our Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper when I first saw it, but I really like how these came out and I think I can see quite a few more projects using it.
We used circle and oval punches to make the cute little pumpkins. Here's the back:
Don't pay any attention to the crooked mat on the "v" block. ;o)
The word "celebrate" came from the Celebrate Baby set, and the "thanks" came from the For All Things set. We simply used a marker to ink up just the word thanks on the Give Thanks For All Things stamp.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the letters. Stampin' Up! has lots of digital files that can be used on e-cutters like the Silhouette. This way I was able to change the sizes of each of the letters to fit the blocks.

I actually have several more projects, both finished and in the works that I want to share with you over the next week, I hope. And, for those of you interested, I have 4 Stamp-A-Stack classes scheduled for next week. Check out my Events page to get the details and RSVP if you'd like to attend. I have some great holiday and birthday cards planned for the class.

Till next time...
God's love and blessings!
