Treats for all!

Just a reminder to rsvp if you haven't if you want to come to my workshops next week (Thursday at 6:30and Saturday at 1:30). I need to know final numbers to prepare the supplies for everyone's make & takes:)
I normally prepare a small gift for the hostess of a workshop I'm demonstrating at, but since I'm the hostess this time, I decided to make a small treat for everyone attending:)) I didn't buy any hallowe'en product this year, so I used up old/retired product for these since I needed to make so many of them. The dsp was from a 6 x 6 pack that came a hostess benefit in a previous year & the stamp was the set Holiday Best which was a hostess set available in the last catalog.

The Keys to Paris

Sorry not to have posted recently but my darling husband took me on a trip to Paris so hopefully you will understand;) Also, when we got home about a week ago I got a terrible cold so I haven't been stamping that much lately.

I found these old keys before we went away at a Home Sense store and I made the tag out of a piece of chipboard and a piece of cardstock that I used an impressions folder on.

Stamps used come from the following Stampin Up sets:
- Artistic Etchings
- Notably Ornate
- Tiny Tags

Also, as of today I've decided to finally take the plunge and become a Stampin' Up demonstrator. I love creating and I mostly use SU products already, so it seems a natural step. I'll be hosting a workshop toward the end of the month as my kickoff once I receive my starter kit and will be sure to post the details on here. Also, I'll be hosting a couple of classes between now and Christmas to help people with gift ideas, so stay tuned! Stampin' Up has some wonderful promotions coming up too, so I'm excited to be able to share them with you as soon as they begin!!
