Simon Says Stamp

Simon Says Stamp is offering and awesome coupon code for Halloween!  It's been sitting in my inbox for a few days waiting for me to have a minute to sit down and make a few picks.  There are so many great products being released all the time, but I like to think about each selection carefully.  I don't want to end with products that just take up space in my craft room.  Just because I love the projects others have made with a particular product doesn't mean I will get enough use out of it to justify purchasing it.  So after all that I finally made my selections. 
Now I just can't wait for them to arrive!

Take a peek at my picks below!  Happy Shopping!

With Much {LOVE} And Gratitude

I love this time of year.  Giving baked goods as gifts is one of my favorite things.  I love to bake and giving it away allows me to make others happy and maintain my waistline. 
On Thursday I baked 5 little loaves of zucchini bread and sent them to work with my husband as a treat for his co-workers on Friday.  We then made plans to visit with friends on Saturday night.  I just happened to have another zucchini, so I made 5 more loaves and brought a few with us to share with our friends.  Another friend dropped by with a housewarming gift and I just happened to have a loaf for her too! 
The recipe for these is so quick and easy I thought I'd share it with you today in case you'd like to bake some yourself.  I love making fun desserts, but sometimes you just want quick and easy.  This recipe requires no fancy equipment and is easy cleanup.  I got the recipe from the Foods teacher at my school.

Reindeer Tags + Friday Inspiration File Week #285

Friday, October 21, 2016

TGIF!  I'm working on a set of Christmas tags using WP9 Santa's Reindeer and the new Christmas Tag Die.  I started by using two of the deer in the set, Rudolph and his girlfriend!  That's how I see them anyway :)
The design is super simple with just some basic Copic coloring and a little Wink Of Stella for shimmer.  They are easy to mass produce.
Since it's Friday I have also added new projects to the Friday Inspiration File Week #285!  Check them out! 
Below you'll find links to  all of the products used on my reindeer tags {affiliate links used}
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi! I'm on the WPlus9 Blog today sharing a card with a similar design, but using different images from the new Santa's Reindeer set.  The best part: I made both cards with only one Santa image!
I stamped, die cut, and colored my Santa and then I... cut him in half! Don't worry, he didn't cry...that much! :)
