Hi Paper Crafters,

Yep, it’s everything Pumpkin Spice season.  I know that there are 2 camps on this, you either love it or hate it.  I happen to love it so I was thrilled when Stampin’ Up! released the Merry Cafe stamp set that included a Pumpkin Spice sentiment along with some Christmas, Halloween, Fall, New Year’s Day and even some I love you stamps!  Want some more awesomeness?  It coordinates with the Coffee Cafe and Coffee Cup Framelits Dies from the Annual Catalog!!!!  I mixed and matched from both the Merry Cafe and the Coffee Cafe stamps to create today’s adorable gift.

I used coffee scented candles that I found at the Dollar Tree store, so yes, the candles were priced at only  $1.00.  The candles are cute all on their own because they even come with the clear acrylic domes.  (You must remove the acrylic domes before you light the candles.)  Anyway, I created the candle carrier with Stampin Up products just to jazz up these candles.  I plan to put them in clear cellophane bags and viola – a cute gift!  Here’s what I used.  Remember that you can click on any of the thumbnail images and be taken directly to my online store 24/7!

Note:  The ribbon and paper straws in the candles are not Stampin’ Up! items.

I’m moving! 

As some of you might know, my husband and I moved to be close to the construction of our home in Canyon, TX.  Well, I’ve been absent from my DIY Stamping Fun blog due to all the last minute details leading towards the completion of our home.  I’ve missed blogging and I probably won’t blog for at least a week or so.  The AWESOME news is that I will have my own stamp studio complete with ceiling mounted cameras.  You can’t imagine how excited I am to be able to start my own videos showing the world how to make cards, home decor and just everything artsy in nature.  So, hang tight as I settle in as I will be back in your e-mail inbox soon!  I meet with the sound and video folks tomorrow morning.  Stay tuned for more information.

Reminder:  Use the October Host code when placing your order and receive a free gift from me!

Inky Hugs,
