Thanks A Lot Fall!

I had so much fun attending a stamping on candles and fall wreath class tonight.  The instructor used all Stampin' Up products and I absolutely love how everything turned out.  The new In Color colors are gorgeous and perfect for fall.  I learned a new stamping technique called "Baby Wipe Technique".  I loved how this image turned out with all the great colors.  I can't wait to create more beautiful candles using this technique!

The leaves were individually cut with a Sizzix and then crumpled, inked and then hot glued to a grapevine wreath.  Cute wooden shapes and natural twine was used to add some fun accents.  Beautiful!

Tea Anyone?

First I want to show you guys just how messy I am...this is my work area.  I'm not sure how it's possible to make anything with this postage stamp size work area.  I have stacks of material everywhere!

And on the side:
These are boxes in the making and here are some of the finished products

Here's a close up of the tags attached to the outside:

I got the dimensions and instructions for the boxes on  Go to their tutorial section.  The "Merry and Bright" tags are cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge and the copper stripes are from a stamp set that came with the cartridge (CTMH).  Merry and Bright are an old stamp from Stampin' Up.  The gold mesh ribbon was bought at a yard sale for $.25 the roll.  Papers are just a mixture from my stash.
