wait for it...
some fabulous BLOG CANDY!!!!!!!!
As I wrote previously, I've been a bit negligent. I was fully planning to offer this up at 10,000 hits, or my blogaversary and I missed both of them with a super busy summer. But now I'm back on track and so here it is....................
What's up for grabs??? Well there a large sampling of 6x6 DSP, over 60 die cuts of DSP, the retired hostess set Comfort Food and a tempting turquoise stamp pad. The DSP includes Parisian Summer, Junior Varsity, Summer Picnic, Georgia Peach, Washington Apple, Urban Garden, Windsor Knot, Bella Rose, Hawaii Papaya, Maine Blueberry, & Green Tea, to name a few. The stamps are new and unmounted and the stamp pad is still wrapped up in it`s shiny plastic wrapper.
So how do you get a chance to win, you ask...
Well what you need to do is sign up as a follower for this blog. If you sign up as a follower you will get one entry, if you comment on this post, you will get another entry, but only if you are signed up as a follower first. If you post a link to this on your blog you will get another entry in the pot, but you have to be signed up as a follower first and foremost - get the drift. You do not need to have your own blog to sign up as a follower.
You have until September 30th at midnight PST to do this.
I really hope to see you all as followers. And if you are already a follower, you already get an entry, but if you link to me or post a comment you will get more!

This image was made with the Simple Birthday Thanks stamp. I paper pieced it together after stamping the image on Brocade Blue DSP, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, and Ruby Red Cardstock. I die cut the letters with the Billboard die for the Big Shot. I lightly sponged the icing with chocolate chip ink to give it a bit of definintion. The only non-Stampin' Up! items are the square rhinestones which I just couldn't help myself from adding.

This project was made for the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This challenge blog was set up by the wonderfully talented Mary Fish. I love, love, LOVE her work. This week's challenge was to design a project with a Halloween Theme. I came up with this little Mini album. It would be great for pre-teens or teens. They could put little pictures in of their Halloween events one year, or maybe Mom would like to put together one with a picture from every year to showcase the different Halloween costumes over the years...the possibilities go on, and on...
First I made the house shape out of the heavy cardboard that we get with our DSP packs of paper. It's easy enough to cut in the paper cutter, but heavy enough to make a cover from. Next I inked up some Creamy Caramel paper to make the faux wood effect. Then I used punches to make the fence and the circles. This actually started out as a birdhouse card, so if you're wondering where the door is; it's a birdhouse!
The pages were made from clear envelopes I cut them down, and used a craft knife to add a little slit so you can access the pages. Then I made inserts and slid them in. Next I stapled all the inserts together and then attached them to the front cover using these cute eyelets I found at the fabric store. The great thing about these eyelets is that they are 2 pieces, so there's a front and a back which means no sharp edges on the inside of the album.
I put rings through the eyelets and attached the front and back cover together. Then I added some ribbons to the rings. This fabulous DSP is from K&Co. The ribbons are from Mike's and the Rings are from my stash. The ghost image on the cover was cut out of the DSP, inked and adhered to the cover. Look below to check out the bling on the back cover. The stamps used on the cover are SU! (halloween frights)
