Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

 I can hardly believe that its here!  I'm heading to my brothers for dinner and have a few moments to say hi and share two fun creations from my Lone Stampers Club.

This first creation is from Stephanie Slater.  What a cute table setting it would make!  OK, no I did not do that, I had absolutely not one spare moment.

 This second card I just love love!  And I'm ashamed to say, I can't for the life of me remember who made it! I know I asked when it came to me, but can't remember who said it was theirs!!  So if you are reading this please post a comment on here so we know!!

So what are you Thankful for?  I'm thankful that I have a God that loves me and died on the cross for me. I'm thankful that God blessed me with an amazing family.  I'm thankful that I live in the United States of America.  I'm thankful that God has blessed with my Stampin' Up! business and I'm thankful for each and everyone of my customers, because without them, I wouldn't have a business!

Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!

Texture Boutique-Cool!

Texture Boutique - while supplies last!

Due to our partnership with Sizzix, we are pleased to be able to offer a test run of the Texture Boutique Embossing Machine in our North American markets. We have 4,000 available to be sold only while supplies last. I have a feeling they will be sold out today! If this product test goes well, we may offer the Texture Boutique again in the future.
The Texture Boutique works with Textured Impressions Embossing Folders to transform ordinary cardstock, paper, metallic foil, or vellum into an embossed, textured masterpiece. This machine embosses only; it does not die cut. Because this is a product test, the Texture Boutique is not branded with the Stampin' Up! logo.
'Tis the season of giving, and the Texture Boutique makes a wonderful gift for anyone who wants to create their own elegant embossed art. To help you with your gift-giving needs, we're offering a special value bundle that saves you $5.90. If you prefer, you can also purchase the Texture Boutique alone. Looking for stocking stuffers? Pick up some additional embossing folders.

Better Late than never!

Good Evening Everyone!

I know this is about 11 days behind, but wanted to share some Halloween treat ideas along with some fun Halloween pictures!
So this is Sage and Dad, she was the zombie ballerina and he was the zombie dad

Sage and her cousin Piper.  She was an Marinette puppet.  It was really cute! 

I made these for the gals I work with.  I had all the tags left over from making all the bags below for Sage's class.

Filled with pencils, pumpkin erasers and candy.  Embossed with the spider web.  Think about it, you could emboss with Northern Flurry and fill will Christmas Candy and use the Christmas tag set for tags!  Those googlie eyes just get me everytime!  I love them!

More Halloween Fun!

So I had my clubs last week.  And one of the requirements of my club is you have to make swaps.  I don't restrict to Stampin' Up! only, so I don't always share them even though I think they are stinking cute!  But since I talked about in my last post sharing Halloween projects, I thought these two fit the bill.

This first one was from Melissa Ansburg.  She's one of my new downline but she's also in my Lunatic Fringe club.  She embossed the Tangerine Tango with the Spider Web embossing folder and she wanted to make it sturdier so she used poster board.  But you could use the board that comes in our DSP packs.  Cute AND Yummy!


This second one is from my friend, Natalie Bauman.  I love Natalie, she's upbeat and thoughtful and so so creative!  I know this is not only SU! product but for the most part it is.  She used Toxic Treats and Wicked Cool stamp sets.

I love that she used the rosette on the card.  And the color gradient on the witch.

Happy Almost Halloween!

Good Morning!

Wow, I have to apologize to everyone who checks out my blog on a regular basis.  I didn't realize it had been soooo long since I posted.  I have tons to share and I guess I just need to schedule time for this!
With Halloween right around the corner, I'm going to share some fun Halloween projects over the next few days.
Sage had her first Halloween activity already and we had lots of thoughts going on in the
Scherzer house on what she should be.  Well, since she loves Ballet and is an aspiring ballerina, we decided why not a Zombie Ballerina??  This is her friend Kilee and her on their way to their school's Spooktacular Dance on Friday.


Last month, I had a hostess who wanted to do some scrapbook pages, so since Halloween was so close,  we did Halloween pages.

 I just love Stampin' Up!'s glitter paper.  And we used the Googlie Ghouls set.  I just LOVE those googlies eyes! 

And of course a witch needs a cat!  The Frightening Feline wins out on this one.  We put a rhinestone collar on her to give her a little witchy class.

And since we no longer sell that bat punch :(, we made our own.

Easy Peasy!  You take the square scallop punch, punch out your paper, fold it into a triangle and just snip at an angle parallel to the scallops and you turn back the snipped piece to create ears.  And of course had to add the googlie eyes!!!

Oh, I almost forgot!  Stampin' Up! just updated the Clearance Rack, so go check it out!
They just added over 70 new items on the Clearance Rack!

September Cards

Good Evening!

Just wanted to share two of the cards we made at our workshops this month.

This first one you might recognize it from a post from convention, it was a swap that a friend had that I snapped a picture of.  I changed it a little because if you have a spider web you need a spider!!

I know you can't really see it in this picture but he had to have the googlie eyes!  I love that bundle.  Sage and I will have to get busy making treat bags for her classmates!

Our next card was inspired by a card I saw on my friend LeAnn Greff's blog.  Again, I changed it up just a bit and I used the new Dahlia's.  Awesome!

One of my club member had bought the stamp set Bootiful Occasions and I had seen so many fun things to do with it that I said I'd borrow it and do some fun things for there you have it!

More Punch Art!

Good Afternoon Everyone,

As promised, here are the two other punch art cards we did last weekend.  This first one was inspired by my friend and sideline, Sandy Kanapilly.  I changed mine up a little but for the most part looks just like hers.  He's so cute!
This second card was inspired by Fran Koop.  I received it at convention in my Christmas Card Swap and the simplicity of it is what is so inspiring!

I once again did some changes to it to make it my own.  But for the most part its the same.  She had a pearl on top of her tree but with the new Champagne Glitter paper and the small star punch we sell in the Holiday Mini, couldn't resist using those!

Punch Art

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I'm trying to catch up from all the craziness!  So I'm going to do some pre posting.....

I had my quarterly Punch Art class this weekend and here are two of the cute cards we made.

This first one was totally CASED from Jill Coleman.  The only thing I did differently was I used our new googlie eyes from the Holiday Mini.  And I used a heart nose and I put the toes on with our white gel pen.  Some of my class kept the Sweet Baby theme but some used as a birthday card as well.

This second card I actually designed myself, but used the idea of the Hot Fudge Sundae from a punch art swap I was in at convention.  Hope Winfield was the gal who shared how to make the Sundae.

I thought I could make a super cute birthday card with it.  And I was thinking about ice cream dishes.  And I remember my grandma having those depression era glass dishes with the dimples in them so that was my inspiration for the dish.

Yum Yum Yum!  Good enough to eat!

Have a happy Sunday!  Stop back by in a few days to see the other cards we made.

Holiday Mini Samples

Good Evening!
I hope you all had a relaxing Labor Day!  It was a busy fun time at the Walworth County Fair.  Its so bitter sweet, because we love the fair but it means the end of summer.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and visited with Edwin or I.   I love meeting new people and seeing people I haven't seen in a while and catching up!

I even met an old old friend who I went to 2nd and 3rd grade with!  She recoginzed me after almost 40 years!  I was totally blown away.  Just wonderful memories!

So as usual I was lame and didn't bring my camera.  BUT I went to visit my demo friend, Kristen Evert, a couple weeks ago and she had just had her Holiday Open House and I actually had my camera with me!!  So I asked if I could snap some pictures of her awesome projects. 
So here you go....enjoy!  Don't forget you can order all these wonderful products online at

Vellum Flowers and bookmarks.

I can't believe that next weekend is Labor Day!  I've been busy trying to get ready for my booth at the Walworth County Fair.
Last weekend and every night this week, we've been working on these adorable book marks! 

Once again I didn't take pictures!  But I had 5 lovely ladies, Teri Voss, Sheri Belanus, Jen Scheel, Chris Schumacher and Natalie Bauman come and help me last Sunday to put them together.  I've met these gals through my Stampin' Up! business and I'm incredibly blessed to have them in my life.  When they heard what I wanted to do they asked to come help.  And at first I resisted because you know I can do everything myself!  But soon realized I was nutts!  I crazily thought I should make 600 and so that's what we did!

The saying is a retired stamp set from Stampin' Up! but I really felt that God was leading me to do this and to spread His word and promote Him while I was trying to build my business.  After all, I would be nothing without Him.   So this one is my favorite but with 600 we have many many beautiful and interesting designs.  So please stop by and pick one up for free and say hi!  I'll be in the building that the Fair Office is in and I'm directly across from the Will Call window.  So come on by!  I'll also have retired product for sale.
The ribbon is from the new In Colors, stitched Satin Ribbon in Primrose Petals.  And of course we used Big Shot Label Framelits.  And the Designer Series Paper is from Floral District.  I'm keeping this one for myself, because it just makes me happy!

It was all about flowers for this month's workshops.  So we made this beautiful card with the new core color paper in the Holiday mini and the woodgrain embossing folder also found in the Holiday mini.  We used vellum to punch each size of the scallop circle punch, snipped between the scallops,  colored them with a sponge dauber and Viola instant flower.

Getting Ready for Halloween!

I know, I know what??  But really it will be here before you know it!~
I had my group meeting on Wednesday and I had Donna and Kris share what they learned at convention.  Or at least one thing they learned.............

I believe both of these projects were presented by Shannon West.  So stinking cute!
This first one is the Petite Purse Big Shot die cut down to make this cute little box.  And of course, the set is from the Holiday mini called Monster Munchies.  If you look really close, you'll see his bolts are brads!  Thanks to Kris Thomas for recreating Shannon's project.

This next project Donna Marcil recreated with the Ghoulish Googlies bundle on page 27 of the Holiday Mini.  The bag is run through the Big Shot with the Chevron embossing folder.  Donna gave each one of us who attended one of these.  LOVE IT!  I think we'll be making those next month at my clubs.

I did the make and take for us all.  We created this present topper, brooch, ornament thingy, whatever you want to call it with the new Scalloped Tulle Ribbon found on page 4 of the Holiday mini. And the Jumbo Sticky Rounds found on page 31 of the Holiday mini.  I LOVE those things.  I hadn't even noticed them until they used them at convention!
The center is cut from Fun Flowers Bigz die and embossed with the new embossing folder called Lacy Brocade on page 6 of the Holiday mini.  And of course the center is an antique brad.

I think for Christmas using this a bow is just magical!  The new scalloped ribbon is 10 yards for only 6.95.  I'll be buying ALOT of that for my Christmas gifts!

Check back in a few days for some of the swaps that were shared.
