And the Inspiration Continues!

I found two more BEAUTIFUL designs on the Stampin' Up! website. One is similar to one already posted here - but using different colors, can you find it's fraternal twin? The other is a lovely use of the Holiday Thyme Double Sided Designer Paper (only available until 11/30!!)gold heat-embossing and the Snowflakes Stamp Set. ENJOY!

Thanksgiving Blessings

With Thanksgiving just around the corner - why not take some time to reflect on the many blessings God has bestowed on you an your family? There is no better way to express your thankfulness than through a handwritten note! And you can double the pleasure for the recipient by making it a hand-stamped note. The Autumn Elegance Kit (as shown in Country Living Magazine November issue) is perfect for this as it contains enough supplies to make 8 hand-stamped notes to express your thankfulness. Here are a couple of other ideas using Autumn Leaf Prints, Thoroughly Thankful and Country Blessings (from the Autumn Elegance Kit).

YOU Did It!

This adorable Halloween design was stamped by Beth H. using the set Best Fiends and the Halloween Designer Paper from the Holiday Mini. The Holiday Mini is good through the end of November. Halloween is less than 365 days from now! heehee ;)
