So, if you haven't had time yet to check out the retiring list (see post on 10/26)...you wouldn't know that almost all the paper packs are being retired. They are only keeping 4 packs for next year! So, good news is...you still may have some time (if the packs your interested in are still available) to stock up on some great paper packs that won't be available after 12/31/2010! Bad news is...after the packs sell out (which some already have) they are gone. I will really miss some of the packs too...but I plan to stock up! So, go check them out before it's too late!

Today we worked on my daughter's classmate's gifts for Halloween. We got them pencils...wanted to keep it healthy and something they could use. We also had to keep it simple since we had 35 of them to make (plus a few extras for her friends not in her class). We used "Autumn Terracotta" paper (1270 or X5684 / X5689 if you want the combo packs) and "Beware" stamp set (D1381). I think they came out really cute! Let me know what you think?!

I decided to go off the scrapbooking / stamping path today...I have, if you didn't notice, a spot on my blog for a link to other blogs using "Entrecard". They are having a contest (check here for all the info.) so I thought I would follow the rules and add a review. I haven't been doing a blog for long but have been using Entrecard since I started my blog. I have to say, so far, its been a help. I have had people looking at my blog that may not have found it if they didn't use Entrecard. Half my "followers" came from people looking at my blog using Entrecard. I have also found a few blogs that I am enjoying that I know I only found using Entrecard. So, in my book, its worth checking out and using. The only "con" with using Entrecard I have found so far is that it takes time to go through the other blogs and I am disappointed when I find that the blog isn't being kept up and the posts are old...without new posts, some for a long time. Also, some of the blogs don't have a spot for an ad link either. Otherwise, I think there are more pluses then negs. So, if you have a blog...go check them out!

Ok, so today my children and I worked on a Halloween project for my son's kindy class. We wanted to do something fun that didn't include candy...since there are 25 kids in the class, and I figured if each one brings in even 1 piece of candy...just too much candy...so we stayed away from that. We kept it simple too...didn't want my son to feel like only mom did the project. His sister helped us too...and it will be returned when we help her to make something for her class. So, we made "Merry Monster" coloring books. (we stamped one of each of the monsters...you just can't see them in the 1st photo) We used "Hooligans" paper (X7129B), the Merry Monsters stamp set (B1333) and Creep Cobwebs stamp set (D1319). I think the little gifts came out cute! Let me know what you think?!

I thought I would share this paper pack with you...Creative Basics Mistletoe Collection (pg 88, X5811). It's a nice paper pack to buy if you have a small project to do, or you just want to make a few holiday cards. It comes with 12 (6 each of 2 designs) 12"x12" papers and 4 yards of gold satin ribbon. It also comes with a really nice price...so go check it out today...before it's all gone! (available while supplies last)

I thought I would share this today...it's not scrapbooking, but it sure can go with it! There is a really cute recipe at Parents.com. If you're planning a Halloween party / crop day these yummy Jack-O-Lantern / pumpkins would sure be a hit! What do you think?

Over the next few days my children and I will be putting together some really cute Halloween gifts to give to their classmates at school. Once we have them done I'll post some photos. In the meantime I thought you might want to check out all the super cute stamp sets we have for Halloween. (The Boo Crew C1421, Party Animal D1437, Merry Monsters B1333, Spook Alley D1439, Creepy Cobwebs D1319, Spooky Smiles C1324, Fright Night B1359, Spellbound C1374, Beware D1381, and In the Month of October C1431) I can't decide which one is my favorite...since I love them all! Which one is your favorite?

I thought I would post this stamp set for the family and friends who celebrate the Jewish holidays (in my household we do both holidays but not everyone is into Christmas). The stamp set is "Judaic Commentary" (pg. 73 C1380). If you buy the set now it will give you enough time to get your cards all ready for Hanukkah. It's pretty early this year. Or, if your like me, I like to use the saying "Happy Holidays" on my cards and gifts, then you might want to buy the "Holiday Commentary" stamp set. (pg.73 C1379) Either way you can't go wrong!

I thought I would share this card kit with you...incase after watching the "Crazy For Cards" Video (last post) you decide you want something even faster to put together. This is a really cute card set! It's called "Around The Holidays Card Kit" (X8623). It makes 12 cards and its so easy it will take you no time at all to put together. This kit is also going to be retired, so if you like it don't wait to buy it...once it's sold out you can't buy it anymore...so I would say don't wait, go buy it now!

I have lots of projects going on and nothing done to show you yet...but thought I would share this video with you. Art & Soul has a ton of FABULOUS videos you can watch, but thought you would really like to check this one out: Crazy For Cards. Check it out and then go over to my website to buy some paper and stamps. This video will show you how easy it is to make a bunch of cards...and then you'll be ready for the holidays!

Today I thought I would share the Rolling Carryall (Z4202). This bag is great if you go to crops. You can carry a bunch of your supplies and keep it all organized in one spot. It's heavy duty and has a retractable handle. It would also make a great gift if you have a family member that loves to scrapbook or make cards. The company is planning to retire it this year so it's while supplies last and only until the end of the year. So don't wait if you are thinking of buying one do it now!

Now is the time to start making holiday cards...so you'll be all ready once the holidays actually get here. Saw this one and thought I would share (you can also look at an older post for other holiday cards). The stamp sets used on this card are Stocking Style (pg 44, C1376) and Ornate Ornaments (pg 46, D1389)...but there are a ton of other sets in the Idea Book if these don't work for you. Go check them out today and let me know what you think? Also, if you want to set a time to have a "card making" gathering let me know and we can get it on the schedule! Check out the October Special (Jump For Joy!) for a GREAT way to get more supplies for free! We can set up a gathering even if your not close to where I live...just ask me how!
