Curvy Box Pumpkins, Monsters & Mummy’s oh my…

I have several very talented team members.  Today’s blog post I am sharing all of Dreamia Toloso’s fabulous hand made pumpkins, monsters & mummys.  She teaches classes in Louisiana, if you live in that area and would like to attend classes please look her up here: DREAMIA’s CREATIONS.  You can also follow her Facebook page HERE.


You haven’t even seen the cutest part yet.  Check out the mummy’s and the monster.  You can see my Tips & Tricks below for how to make some of these items.


Tips & Tricks:
  • Curvy Box:  The Curvy Box Framelit can be found in the 2014 Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catalog.  It’s fantastic for making all kinds of cute things. 
  • The Mummy:  Dreamia created the mummy wraps by cutting several strips of curvy paper and then inking the edges and adhering them down to the box.  The eyes where punched using the circle punches and neatly tucked under the strips to give the appearance they are peeking out.
  • The Pumpkins:  Dreamia used the Work of Art stamp set to stamp the lines on the pumpkin.  She used Pumpkin Pie card stock and pumpkin pie ink, because what else would you use on a pumpkin, right!?  The leaves are cut and stamped using the Flower Patch Bundle.  The strips of curly paper were most likely wrapped around a pencil to be given a curl.  The adorable acorn was cut from the Autumn Accents die and the top was probably colored with blendabilities to be made darker.
  • The Monster:  Using Basic Black and Old Olive card stock to create these adorable monsters was the perfect idea.  She used fringe scissors one one of the monsters to create his hair and hand cut the points on the other monster.  These monsters are created from the Fry Box Die.
Great job Dreamia.  You can place orders in Dreamias online store.

Thank You’s and More Thank You’s

The list of people in my life to be thankful for is insanely long.  HAHA!  In my Stampin’ UP! business I’ve always said I am so thankful for my customers and downline… but I leave out some important people.  I am also thankful for my sidelines… these are people that may not be on my team but that work with me to help our businesses thrive.  We share ideas and work together as though we are team members.  In the grand scheme of things we really are, at least we are if we want Stampin’ UP! to survive.  

As you know I am part of the Creative Challenge Club…  Here are some goodies that I made up for the other Design Team members using some of the new 2014 Holiday Catalog goodies.

My Paper Pumpkin people.  I am so thankful for them.  I have not done them justice.  Here are some goodies I recently made up to send them this month.  I know they will enjoy having this box for their stamp sets that come in their Paper Pumpkin boxes each month.  If you’d like in on these goodies you can sign up for Paper Pumpkin with me by clicking HERE.  It’s only $19.95 a month, includes shipping (tax is still added). 

My team members.  I am so thankful for my team members.  These are the folks that have decided to join me on this crazy silly sometimes insane adventure of Stampin’ UP!.  Some of them hobbyist and some business builders, but all I consider friends.  I am extremely grateful for them.  Each month I send the top 10 in sales a card or goodie.  This month I included an extra special treat CANDY.   Fourth through Tenth place received one of my Frog or Fox cards and the top three received free product.  If you want to be part of our community purchasing the starter kit is your ticket in.  Don’t be fooled!  About 5 of the people in the top 10 are hobby demonstrators, not everyone is out there doing classes and workshops or running a blog.  You can join us too….
