Stampin Friends Blog Hop — Take Out Treats for Halloween
A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop — Frights and Delights

Creative Inking Blog Hop — Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Showcase

Hello stamper and crafter friends! Welcome to my crafty spot (Stampin' Dreams) on the Creative Inking Blog Hop for the month of September! This months theme is geared around the SpoOkiest holiday of the year...Halloween!  I have been on a Halloween-crafting-craze for the last couple of days, and getting to play with new products from the Holiday catalog has been so much fun!  I'm like a little kid in a candy store..oh, wait!  Isn't that like Halloween?!!  haha! l can't wait to share my creation with you!  :)


You may be starting from here at my blog, Lori Mueller - Stampin' Dreams, or you may have come here from the very talented Colleen Vassos' blog. Please be sure to click the 'Next' button (found below) to move along the Creative Inking blog hop. If you get off track at any time, the full line up below will help you move along from blog to blog.


I am really hooked on this color combination — Granny Apple Green, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black!  Either that, or it's because Stampin' Up! does such a great job offering little combination packages that enable a crafter when buying the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper pack available in the new Holiday catalog.


When I was creating my last projects using the Takeout Treats Bundle, I couldn't decide what color I wanted the sentiment heat embossed onto, so I was sampling several.  This one didn't make the cut on the last project, so it's now making a debut onto this card.  I also decided to die cut a whole schlew of the spider webs from the Black Foil Paper using the Cauldron Framelits dies just to have on hand.  So glad that I did!


I have to giggle because these little frogs look like they are have a grand 'ole party!  Seriously!  Look at the expressions on their faces!  With that thought in your mind, doesn't the sentiment seem a bit more fitting?  Those little frogs are probably scheming up some Halloween tricks.  **belly laugh**


If you don't already know this about me, I do love my Stampin' Dimensionals!  I love the layers, but I do have to be conscientious that I don't stack things too much; otherwise, the postal equipment will chew up a beautifully handmade card and spit it out into the "sorry, that's a no go!" bin.  I hope you'll give this fun bundle — Takeout Treats Bundle — a whirl.  You'll save 10% when you buy them together.  Any savings like that will definitely clear away the SpoOks — makings for a Happy occasion.



From the bottom of my heart, many, many "thanks" to you for you stopping by to visit me.  I love the visits and wonderful thoughts you share with your comments.  It is always my passion to inspire you with my papercrafting projects.  I hope I have peaked your excitement to get your dreams stamped out onto paper using some of the products that I have shared with you.  I truly live to inspire!! But, if you want to become a "Happy Shopper" and get all of your favorites on your wish list at a discount, you can purchase the Starter Kit and join my Stampin' Up! family...fill your Starter Kit with what YOU want (up to $125 worth of product)!  How exciting is that?!!   I am always very, very appreciative of your shopping excursion through my online store, too.


So with one click you can be on your way to soak in some more inspiration showcasing the assigned sketch.  Your next stop on the hop will be with Dena Rekow.  I know her projects will not disappoint...she'll have a beautiful creation to share with everyone. Click on the 'Next' button and you'll be at your next stop.  Have fun filling your inspiration bucket...don't forget to come back real soon.  :)
