Holiday Mini ShoeBox Swap Part 1

Hi Stampers!

I can't believe it's Friday already! How quickly this week has gone by. Luckily, I had today off because we worked hard this week cleaning and setting up the classroom for the return of all the children on Monday. Woohoo, it's going to be an interesting year! :o)

Today I'll be sharing two out of nine projects that we made last month at a Holiday Mini ShoeBox Swap my upline, Yolie held for us at her house. I couldn't stay the whole time but boy was it fun!

The above card is the one I made. If you don't know by now, my favorite holiday is Halloween. I own tons of Halloween sets many retired, that I will never part with because I just love them too much. I enjoy everything about Halloween, the colors, costumes, treats, decorations, etc. So of course I had to make a Halloween card using the NEW Sweet Centers Stamp Set and the NEW Halloween DSP, Cast-A-Spell. I actually saw this card on Becky Robert's site Inking Idaho, and knew right away that I wanted to CASE it. I decided not to use the leaves because it would be too time consuming for everyone to stamp and cut out so many leaves. Of course, Becky's card is a lot more detailed but I still love the way my card came out and hope you do too.

This next card was made by Maria Carillo, She CASED this card directly from the Holiday Mini. She used the NEW Halloween Set Twick or Tweet and coordinating Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel, Haunting Hill. She also used the brand new Specialty DSP from the Holiday Mini, Night & Day. Isn't it cute? I love it!
