You Can Create It - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com

Happy October!  I am excited to share with you some fabulous fall creations from all over the world.  The first day of the month is always YOU CAN CREATE IT INTERNATIONAL – a share that I do with demonstrators from Germany, Canada, Netherlands, and everywhere in between.

"You Can Create It International" - see all the samples at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - October 1, 2015

Here’s how it works…. we are given a set of supplies and the challenge is to create a project using these supplies.  We can add a card base or something else but I really like to work with the supplies and not add anything.  It’s really fun to see what I can create using just the supplies given.

For October, we were challenged to use:

  • 10″ Burlap ribbon
  • 39″ Gold Thread
  • Leaves from the Leaflet Framelits – 2 each in Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe, and Mossy Meadow.

I saw this yummy cupcake at the grocery store yesterday and those sprinkles were calling my name.  Look at those pretty colors!  I knew I could use it with the leaves for this challenge.  Besides, HELLO!  It’s a CUPCAKE!  I could do just about anything with a cupcake and make it look good!  It’s a CUPCAKE!

I used the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set on the cut leaves (one of my new favorites).  Just a touch here and there with a white gel pen and I have some super cute leaves!

I had to manipulate the burlap but it was easy to do.  I just trimmed about 1 ½” off, trimmed off the stitching on the side, and wrapped it around the center.  Cute, huh?  I just realized as I am looking at my photos, I FORGOT TO ADD THE GOLD THREAD!  What a dingbat I am!  Oh well, it would have looked amazing but I already gave the cupcake away.  I had to… I would have devoured that luscious cupcake if I didn’t give it away right away.

Let me share some creations from some of my Stampin’ Up demonstrator friends from overseas…

I hope you enjoyed the creations today.  SUCH talented ladies!  I love being a part of this challenge each month and I hope you have found inspiration and joy from their creations.

Guys, I love the Leaflet framelits SO much and I am SO glad I made the investment!  You won’t be disappointed if you add these to your wish list.  You can order them separately but if you order the Vintage Leaves you can save 15% on the bundle.  I just love that the framelits match TWO different stamp sets.  You get more for your money that way!

The first of the month means a brand new “LET’S GET CREATIVE” exclusive video & tutorial.  I have to say, this project looks SO amazing in person.  Some projects just look better in person, no matter how hard I try to capture it on camera.  And guess what?  This month’s project just so happens to USE the Leaflet framelits and one of the matching stamp sets!  Did I plan it this way?  Oh heavens no, I’m not talented enough to think that far in advance.  It’s just the way the leaves fell, I guess.

Oh wait!  I have to tell you the BEST part of this month’s project.  It’s HOT GLUE GUN FREE!  Yes, you read that right!  Not a drop of hot glue was needed, where most wreaths you do.  In fact, I didn’t use any adhesive at all.  Intrigued?  Hmm, and what is the wreath made of?  Well, you’ll just have to order to find out.  Use Host Code 2JCNKVCJ on your order of $20 or more in my ONLINE STORE
