Disney Matchbook Treats

No Tricks...Just Treats!

Perfectly magical treats for this Halloween...  Give these out to friends, co-workers, mail carriers, teachers...oh, yeah...and kids!  These come together so quickly and they are sure to brings smiles to everyone.  Below you'll find the measurements and supplies you'll need. They are available at my Online Store. (not the gummies...those I found at Walgreens).  The sentiment inside is from September's Paper Pumpkin Kit but there are several more in the Holiday Catalog that would work perfectly.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend...

Happy Stamping!

Creative Circle Design Team - October Blog Hop

Hello, Friends!

I'm beyond excited today as I type this post.  I was asked to be a part of the Creative Circle Design Team Blog Hop!  Woot!  I'm so honored to be one of the designers that are included in this fun and talented group of ladies.

The Creative Circle Blog Hop is on the 6th of each month.  How fun that I get to post my very first one on October 6th since it is my 32nd wedding anniversary.
The theme for this month's hop is the incredibly popular "Pop Up Card".  When I started designing my card, I decided to go BIG or go home.  LOL  I designed a brand new punch art critter just for the occasion.  I absolutely love her.  If you've followed me and my punch art, you know that I always name my critters.  This lovely little lady's name is "Wilma Vanderspook".  She just makes me smile from ear to ear.  Wilma is different than most of my "critters" because she's the leading lady of a new "exclusive" punch art family I'm going to be offering from time to time.  More on that later....I just can't wait any longer to share her with you!

Ladies and Gents....I give you "Ms. Wilma Vanderspook"!

...and now for the  POP UP....

Isn't that Pop Up just the coolest thing ever??  Every time I've opened it to show it I hear gasps and "How'd you do that??".  It's SO much fun (and addictive!)

The Exclusive Punch Art Critters (or EPACs for short) will have step by step tutorials available ONLY with a purchase.  They will not be sold separately.  When an EPAC is posted, it will be noted and the tutorial will be FREE with a purchase of $30 or more at my Online Store.  Once you've placed your order, you'll send me an email requesting the tutorial(s) of your choice.  I will then email you the tutorial file.  Cool! Huh??

Alrighty...time for you to hop on over (actually back to the beginning) to see Sandra's beautiful creation at The Scrap 'n Stamp Shop.  Just click below.  Please come back and visit again soon! you go....

Stamped Blessings,

What's Up, Wednesday?

Hump Day isn't so bad when you can stamp something!

What's Up, Wednesday?

It is a rainy, gloomy day here today and I was so happy to find a little color to cheer things up a bit in the studio.  I love the way that Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango on today's card just pop off of the page. Below you'll find a step by step tutorial on how to make some of your own.  I hope it brightens your day!  As always, all supplies are available at my Online Store at

Wishing you inky fingers and smiles ahead,
Flourishing Phrases Thank You
