Catty Cruise Sets Sail


Welcome Sailers! If you have just come from LeeAnn Greff did you totally get you mind thinking about Christmas.. I know I am excited to get thinking about making Christmas tags... Were you just blown away with her amazing projects or what!! That's a hard act to follow. So here it goes.


I am so excited to share a few FALL projects for you... This time of year is one of my favorites of all time.. I love the changing of the leaves and the crisp smell of change in the air.. I have to say that I am loving football season this year soooo much.. ( I can't believe that I just typed that LOL.) I have no clue when it come to the rules ect.. I am just so proud of my 11th grader and his high school football team.. I guess you could say I am learning to love the sport and I am now a FOOTBALL MOM...(he,he)


"Pumpkin Patch" Diorama Card
My first project is so much fun.. I made a Diorama card a few years ago and have loved looking at it but with Halloween just around the corner I wanted a new fall one to show off. (you can find a great tutorial for cutie pa-tutie Diana Gibbs here.) So I couldn't resist when I saw the next stamp set "PUMPKIN PATCH" in the new "Holiday Mini Catalog" from Stampin' Up.. You can get a look right here..


Picture Window "Pumpkin Patch"
I love layers... I had such a fun time making this halloween card.. I {HEART} my Stampin' Up Punches... The curly label punch was sooo perfect for little window.. I love the curves it give to the windows it makes it just a little more whimsical that a square... Another favorite item that is a must have from S.U. is their YUMMY ribbon... I LOVE!!! the new Dusty Durango in-color.. This new color works so perfectly with the color "Pumpkin Pie, and pink, and Old Olive, and Kraft, and Taken with Teal.. You get the picture...
Don't for get to leave a little surprise in side your cards...

"Autumn Splendor"
OK now here are some of the yummy fall colors that I was talking about... How cool do they look with Taken with Teal... The new stamp set "Autumn Splendor" make the coolest background paper.. The veining in the leaves are just gorgeous...

Give Thanks with "Autumn Splendor"
I really wanted to make a card using the "Emerging Color Technique" This is one of my favorite technique.. It's always a surprise you never know what you the finished card will look like. The Sentiment on this card is from the stamp set "Holiday Best" but if you want to add it to your collection you can host a workshop and learn how to do the Emerging Color Technique and earn this set with your hostess benefits... than means FREE...Yahoo!

Just like FALL it's time to move on to the next Catty Cruise Port.. You won't be disappointed.. I
can hardly contain my self I love this girlies work... I will be joining you on the cruise so I can devour all the project Becky Roberts is sharing with you... If you have never been to here sight you will quickly add her to you blog roll so you never loose her.. Becky is the QUEEN of 3-d and altered projects... And guess what she is even cuter that her projects..
Love you Becky...

Enjoy and happy cruising!
