PPA 113 - Anything but a card

I had lots of ideas for this challenge but not as much time. I made this banner for my house and am making a similar mini banner this weekend - it's a "Thankful" banner. This was my test run to make sure I wanted to do the class. It was fun and easy to make!

Mojo Monday 109

Here is the Mojo sketch for the this week: I knew I wanted to do a Christmas card but something in non-traditional Christmas colors. Here is what I came up with:

I really like how these colors compliment each other and with the addition of the snowflake and "make merry" stamps it becomes a perfect holiday card.

Card Recipe:
Stampin' Up Paper:
Card Stock - Perfect Plum, Old Olive, Almost Amethyst and Kraft
DSP - Cast-a-spell, I am in love this with this DSP it doesn't just have to be used for Halloween

Ink & Stamp Sets:
Perfect Plum
Patterned Pines (snowflake) - Hostess Set
Grateful Greetings (make merry) - Holiday Mini-Catalog

Rhinestone Brads - clear
Linen Thread
Button - old olive
Pop dots

PPA10 - Gratitude and Thanks

I put this little box together today with the idea that I would use them at one of my Stampin' Up classes. I plan on giving a goodie box to each person in attendance at my November classes as a "thank you" for supporting me.

Project Basics:
I punched out a hole in each side of the box with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch then placed a sheet of vellum inside the box. I punched scalloped circles out of chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, old olive, and ruby red card stock. I had the coordinating buttons and ribbon on hand.

Mojo 106

Here is my Mojo Monday card. I created it for my new nephew's shower gift. I have included a picture of the gift. His nursery is jungle themed.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock - kraft, soft suede, crushed curry, not quite navy, ruby red and certainly celery
Teeny Tiny Wishes
Since I'm new to Stampin' Up I don't have all the stamps I would like but I'm working on it. The Spirals in the back are from and old stamp set but the SU one I would use is the Whimsy jumbo roller.
