Fall Glitter Queens Blog Hop!

Many of you know Dawn Griffith, who is a wonderful Stampin Up! Demo with her own online Stamping Studio with TONS of YouTube videos featuring Stampin Up! products.  Her videos were SO helpful when I first started crafting and she introduced me to the world of SU! :)  I am proud to be one of her Glitter Queens!



Anywho, her Glitter Queens are coming back together this week with 3 whole days of FALL hopping!  Each of us will showcase several stamp sets or products that have either a Fall, Halloween, or Thanksgiving theme.

Hopefully you arrived from Jennifer's page. If you're just stopping by to visit me (aw, you're so sweet!), please be sure to go back to the start of the hop at Dawn's page.  Be sure to visit all of the Glitter Queens during the whole hop for more project ideas and chances to win BLOG CANDY!  Just in case you missed someone along the way, links to the all of the Glitter Queen blog hoppers can be found below in order from beginning to end. 

My first project are two tins that I altered for a couple of gals with October birthdays!  

I used some SU! tins and papers that are now retired and also personalized them.

Here's what they look like inside.  There is a pad of paper and a pen on the left and 3 note cards on the right.  

The notecards were all decorated by using the stamp set Tagtastic, which you can get as a hostess reward.

Very simple design using a stamp from Tagtastic, the curly label punch, and some pearls.

Very simple design using a stamp from Tagtastic, scallop punch and circle punches, and rhinestones.

Very simple design using a stamp from Tagtastic, scallop border punch, and rhinestones.  Don't you love that tricycle riding bear!?


Now, how about some BLOG CANDY?


I'm giving away everything needed to make your own tin!  You'll get 8 6x6 double sided sheets of designer paper, card stock, note pad, mini gel pen, punch outs, flowers, a sampling of the pearls and rhinestones, binder clip, and the tin!  All you really need is your own adhesive and there will be enough "extras" after you create your tin to make something else!  The papers and tin are retired, so the only place you can get it is by winning on my blog!

Rules: You need to be a follower to win; and you'll also have 3 chances!  I will be posting 3 different projects this week (Monday-Wednesday).  Just leave a comment on each post for each day and you can get up to 3 entries for the candy! I will be picking the winner on Thursday using random.org, so please be sure to leave a valid e-mail address!

Now, get hopping!  Click on the Next Blog button below to head to Tamara's blog!
 And don't forget to come back tomorrow for more fun!
