Gourd Goodness & Ink Splattering

Gourd Goodness stamp set from Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

AND…. So it begins… the countdown to the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  I am so super excited to share my first card featuring the new Stampin’ UP! holiday products.

I love this stamp set.  It’s so pretty and of course very fall inspired.

Gourd Goodness stamp set from Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday Catalog Wendy Cranford www.luvinstampin.com

I really love how this card came together.  I have been struggling with my creative mojo, big time.  My friend Katina stopped by my house and saw me in the process of designing and I was struggling so much.  She just said “Turn it horizontal” and the voila it all came together.

I am hoping this has jump started my mojo and I will be 100% back to normal quickly.

Girls Trip Pillow Gifts – Monterey California

This last weekend a few of my friends and I went to Monterey CA to celebrate my dear friend, Laura, turning the big 40

We had the best time.

The weekend started with a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  Friday night 2 more of our friends showed up and we spent the evening enjoying wine and talking until 3am.

The next day was more hanging out on the wharf and cannery row, with a fabulous lunch and dinner and more eating and enjoying drinks in the evening.

Sunday we headed to Carmel By The Sea and enjoyed the shopping on Ocean Ave and coffees before we headed for home.

All of my friends seemed to really enjoy the wine glasses.  I ordered them on Etsy from Kreations From Kentucky

Of course I loved making all the boxes for the glasses.  Packaging is everything, don’t ya know!?

I have a video for you featuring this cute box.  I hope you enjoy it.

Here are the measurements for the box:

  • Start with a 12″ x 12″ piece of card stock for the bottom of your box
  • Score at 4″ and 8″, then turn 90 degrees and score again at 4″ and 8″
