Holiday Tic Tac Punch Art craft project

click to: Shop Online anytime with Patty

click for info: free adhesive in October

--------------------------------

While I was in UT in September, I was excited to join Susan Adams and Janet Baker for an afternoon of stamping.. this adorable Snowman Tic Tac holder was one of the cute projects we made... such a fun Punch Art Craft project to do with kids or any crafter this holiday season!

Snowman tic tac
The "wrapper" is the Two Tags Die, and of course the snowman is created with punch art using lots of different punches.  I thought the ticket punch was adorable for the hat!  Color the Basic Pearls with a sharpee marker for the black coal buttons. (similar to coloring rhinestones in this video)

My friend Cindee is offering some of these cute projects on her blog as a kit...

visit her here to order yours if you would like a kit.

Here are a few more of the samples Susan and Janet had on display:

One of the highlights of our Founder's Circle trip each year is to swap with 125 (+/-) of the top demonstrators in the company... I thought you might enjoy some of the wonderful Halloween and Fall card samples I received in the swap!

Samples fall denise s lyns m

These 2 great cards were done by Denise Sullivan and Lynsay Mahon

Denise used the fun Toxic Frameable kit download with My Digital Studio.

look at the pretty sparkle on Lynsay's card!

Samples fall leaves
I am guessing that she made a reverse mask and sponged Lucky Limeade on the cardfront and then spritzed it with Smooch Spritz or a mixture of Shimmer Paint and alcohol in the Stampin' Spritzer. Lynsay used the classic French Foliage stamp set in Basic Gray.. what a great look!

September Customer Coupon & Special

See below for my Founder's Circle Special!!!

--------------------------------

Each year on our Founder's Circle Trip we are treated to a most amazing "event'.. we never know what it will be, or where, but this year the Event Staff DELIGHTED AND AMAZED us with a float trip down a 3 hour portion of the Colorado River!!  We launched right below the Glen Canyon Dam at the base of Lake Powell, and floated for 3 hours (insert singing here... "a 3 hour tour, a 3 hour tour") :) down Glen Canyon on the Colorado River!!

The photos speak for themselves.. God's amazing handiwork shows at every twist and turn on this river!

Glen canyon 2a

We launched right at the base of the Glen Canyon Dam.. Lake Powell is on the other side of this dam.



Glen canyon launch site

Glen canyon dam

We went over this bridge above the dam to get here... the Glen Canyon Dam Bridge is 700 feet above the river... wow!!

Glen canyon dam bridge

Behind the dam is Lake Powell.

The water comes from the bottom of the lake under the dam and into the Colorado River.. so the water is super cold.... 47 degrees!!!! 

The weather was warm - in the 90's - but the breeze off the water was delightful as we moved..
